“The PDP youth were led by one Edafe, popularly known as ‘Gaddafi’, an aide to the member representing Isoko South constituency 11 in the state of Assembly, Johnson Erijo, who is also the Director General of the Campaign Organisation of Leo Ogor, the Minority Leader and member representing Isoko federal constituency. Our investigations so far revealed that the PDP youth were sponsored by Ogor and PDP members in the community. So many of our vehicles were burnt and damaged.”

 

undreds of All Progressives (APC) supporters in Isoko nation of Delta State escaped death Saturday, when armed thugs accused of working for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), attacked the campaign train of the APC candidates: Joel-Onowakpo Thomas of Isoko federal constituency; Benjamin Okiemute Essien of Isoko South constituency I, Delta State House of Assembly, and Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta South senatorial district.

SaharaReporters gathered that the campaign train was moving from Enwhe in Isoko South Local Government Area of the state to the neighbouring Igbide community in continuation of their campaign rally, when they were ambushed by the hoodlums, who set ablaze several vehicles and damaged others.

Our correspondent learnt that PDP thugs, who were shooting sporadically, barricaded the road on sighting the campaign train.

Narrating the incident to our correspondent, one of those present at the rally, who gave her name as Ewomazino, said: “As we were on the campaign ground, we received a security alert that there were plans to attack us. As we were moving in a convoy to the neighbouring Igbide community, these PDP youth attacked us as we got to the other side of the community called Okpolo-Enwhe.

PDP vs APC: Atiku heads to Supreme Court over INEC server

pdp vs apc: atiku heads to supreme court over inec server PDP vs APC: Atiku heads to Supreme Court over INEC server c5ff686f atiku

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has vowed to challenge, at the Supreme Court, the dismissal of their application to be granted access to inspect the central server allegedly used by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to transmit results of the last general .

Recall that the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal had earlier ruled in a unanimous decision that the request could not be granted since the issue of whether such central server existed or not, is already a subject of controversy in the substantive petition that is challenging President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election.

Reacting to the Tribunal’s ruling, a senior member of the Atiku and PDP’s legal team, Chief Chris Uche, SAN, told Journalists: “The nation was looking forward to this ruling and it is one that is very pivotal to this matter.

“The Electoral Act itself empowers the tribunal to grant access such as this to the petitioners in order to institute and maintain a petition, and that is what we are asking for.

“Somehow, at this stage, the court has ruled. But definitely this is a matter we want to take higher to the Supreme Court to challenge this ruling because we strongly feel that section 151 of the Electoral Act entitles us to have access to these materials.”

On its part, INEC, through its lawyer, Mr. Usman Uztaz, SAN, said it was satisfied with the ruling.

“These are issues to be tried during the hearing, you cannot try them in piecemeal”, INEC’s lawyer told newsmen.

Oshiomhole speaks on ‘becoming new godfather’ of Edo politics

oshiomhole speaks on ‘becoming new godfather’ of edo politics Oshiomhole speaks on ‘becoming new godfather’ of Edo politics Oshiomhole2 1024x576 3

National Chairman of the All Progressives , APC, Adams Oshiomhole has denied accusations of perpetuating himself as the new godfather of Edo politics.

Oshiomhole made the denial on Sunday while fielding questions from State correspondents after leading some APC members to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Speaking on the latest crisis rocking the party in Edo state, the APC National Chairman challenged his accusers to come up with proofs.

He said, “What is the evidence? It’s all about accusation. They have to give you the particulars of that godfatherism. What’s the evidence? I am a democrat. That I accept the credit, not only that, I fought godfatherism”

Oshiomhole boasted that he did not only destroy the concept of godfathers in Edo politics but also launched the one man one vote campaign to fight against rigging anywhere in Nigeria.

He said, “By the special grace of God under PDP with Anenih alive, and at his best, I won all the 18 local government areas and I won 95 percent of the total votes cast in my second term election.

“So, Edo people know me and I know them. I don’t need short-cut to sustain my position in the system. But you know that there is nobody in Nigeria who is not open to accusations. The important thing is that he who accuses should give you proofs.“

The former Edo State governor also condemned the use of few members of the State House of Assembly to elect leadership of the House, without the consent of majority of the members.

“You know that what happened in Edo was that they did not publicize a proclamation letter, the members were not informed, they did the inauguration at 9:30 pm in what in a Supreme Court judgement they call nocturnal hours. Business of parliament are done transparently; they are not secret cult. Now you have 24 member House, 19 members protested.

“You have six and you carry people in their short knickers, even in the House they have rules, the dress code.

“So, it happened in Edo, it has happened in Bauchi. Like Edo, Bauchi used the minority of 10 to go and proclaim the House and lockout 20 APC members and got those 10 people to elect, exactly the way Edo did with 6 and then co opted other 3 people to become 9 and even at that, it is nonsense.

“For us these are completely illegal. And that is why we said so. If it is wrong, it is wrong whether it is done by APC or by PDP.

“I believe by the end of the day, the solution is return to the rule of law. Let’s properly follow the law; let the parliament do what they have to do but people have the right to lobby for people they want and whom they prefer. This is also legitimate.”

He called on the states to emulate the example of the National Assembly where the contestants and party officials lobbied to be elected as leaders of the Legislature, culminating in the election of leaders through the secret ballot.

According to him, “We have an APC Senator, who in spite of all the efforts invested by all our leaders including Mr. President, insisted that he will contest.

“The law allowed him so, we couldn’t stop him. The President could have said ok SSS please find excuse to invite him for questioning the day before; put him away until the elections are over. But we won’t do that.

“That is not the change we promised. The change we promised is to try to improve in the ways public institutions are managed and how rules are implemented. I believe that it will be resolved.”
