PDP threatens to pull out of Peace accord following Governor El-Rufai's body bag Statement 1

Peoples Democratic Party has threatened to pull out of the 2019 general election Peace Accord folowing the body bag comment made by Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai on NTA last night.

during a live programme on NTA, said anyone who will come into Nigeria to interfere in our politics might end up in a body bag.

Following his comment, has threatened to pull out of the peace accord. Read the party’s statement below

The Peoples Democratic Party (), after due consideration of comments, threats and incendiary actions by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Buhari Presidency, which are directly inimical to a peaceful, free and fair election, the is left with no option than to consider a review of its signatory in the national peace accord, if no action is immediately taken to curb this trend.

Nigerians are still in a shock over comments by the Governor of Kaduna state, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, who declared on a national television that members of the global democratic institutions that are working for a peaceful election in Nigeria will return to their countries in body bags. What a threat?

We call on the international community to immediately impose a travel ban on el-Rufai for this inciting comment against peaceful elections in our country.

Also of particular note is the plot to redeploy, a former Chief Security Officer to APC leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, CP Kayode Egbetokun, as Kwara state Commissioner of Police, where he has been handed the instruction to incite the people, cause pandemonium and pave the way for outright rigging in favour of President Buhari and all other candidates on the platform of APC.

This is in line with plans by the Buhari Presidency and the APC to effect a mass deployment of top security officers, particularly the police, to intimidate, harass and manhandle Nigerians that will not support the self-succession bid of President Muhammadu Buhari as well as aiding APC thugs to snatch ballot boxes and orchestrate violence in the elections.

Nigerians are aware of how CP Kayode Egbetokun was posted to Lagos state by the disgraced former Inspector General of Police, Idris Ibrahim, to serve the same partisan interest and how that posting was stopped by the new IGP Adamu Mohammed. Now, he is being redeployed to Kwara state for the same ignoble plot.

It is necessary to state that the is a party of peace and we are committed to the peace accord. However, the deployment of the Kayode Egbetokun as Kwara CP directly negates the principle of the Peace Accord and can only hurt the fragile peace that currently exists in Kwara state.

We wish to remind the acting Inspector General, Adamu Mohammed that his acceptability among Nigerians across party line was based on the pedigree, which was presented to Nigerians before his appointment.

These pedigree and exposure place on his shoulders, the responsibility to be just, firm, equitable and professional in the discharge of his duties. We therefore urge him not to allow his reputation to be mired in controversial political activities.

Very importantly, the calls on the National Peace Committee to note the infractions by the APC and its leaders to the peace accord, including the provocative shut down of all the stadia in Kano state by the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, in order to frustrate the Presidential campaign rallies in the state.

We therefore call on the National Peace Committee to immediately summon el-Rufai on his inflammatory remarks against peaceful election in our country.

The PDP hold that any situation that seeks to allow the APC to abuse the tenets of the accord will definitely force our party to review our signatory to the peace process. In that regard, we might have no option left than to allow our members to defend their votes with whatever that is available to them.

This country belongs to all of us and no individual or group, no matter how highly placed, can subjugate other citizens or seek to appropriate any sort of absolutism to themselves.

Son Heung-min becomes top scoring Asian in Champions League history

Son Heung-min

Son Heung-min

Tottenham star Son Heung-min has become the top scoring Asian in Champions League history with his quick-fire double against Manchester City.

Spurs went down 1-0 in Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final second leg, with Raheem Sterling scoring City’s fastest ever Champions League goal just three minutes and 51 seconds in the game.

But Tottenham’s South Korean star popped up with goals in the seventh and 10th minutes to give his side the lead.

That lead wouldn’t last long though in a wild first half, with Bernardo Silva levelling the match just a minute after Son’s second and Sterling scoring his second and City’s third 10 minutes after that.

Son, however, had already made history after he scored the game’s only goal in the first leg in London last week.

With 12 goals, Son is now the leading goalscoring Asian in Champions League history, passing former Dynamo Kyiv star Maksim Shatskikh (Uzbekistan) for the record.

It has been another prolific season for Son, with the 26-year-old having now reached 20 goals in all competitions for Spurs this season.

Wednesday’s game saw other records set, with the frantic start setting the mark for the fastest four goals ever scored in a single Champions League match.

In addition, Son and Sterling’s early goals meant Wednesday was the first time in Champions League history that two players have scored two goals in the first 21 minutes of the same game.

Nigerian Senate passes police reform bill

Nigerian Senate has passed the Police Reform Bill 2019 during today’s plenary session. The bill titled, Senate Bill 683 bill was passed after the third reading.

Senator Tijjanj Kaura (APC-Zamfara North) had presented the report, and it was seconded by Senator Mao Ohuabunwa (-Abia North). They both asked the Senate to consider the report of the Committee on Police Affairs on the Police Reform Bill, 2019 (SB. 683), following which the Senate moved into the presentation and consideration of report.

The Senate, in considering the bill, dissolved into the Committee of the Whole for its clause-by-clause consideration.

In his response to the passing of the bill, Senate President Bukola Saraki noted that the bill was passed to “ensure that the Police officers are of better condition and are more productive.”

“We want to ensure that our people are protected at all time. I think this is a very great achievement for all of us and I hope we continue to provide better security for our people, protect lives and citizens.

“This will go a long way to show that we are a listening Parliament, listening Senate and there is nothing better we can do in honour of those who have lost their lives along the way due to the fact that our laws at that time were not in line,” Saraki added.

He expressed gratitude to “the Deputy Leader and all those who had contributed for this very important Bill.”

Saraki noted that since 1943, nothing has been done in addressing the Police Act as a reform; expressing thanks to the Senate Police Committee. “I want to thank particularly the Police Committee; the Chairman and members, and our colleagues for their contributions and their work in passing this Bill,” Saraki said.

Ex-President, Alan Garcia Commits Suicide To Avoid Arrest Due To Corruption Scandal

Published

Alan Garcia

Alan Garcia

Alan Garcia,Peru’s former president died in a hospital in Lima on Wednesday, hours after shooting himself in the head to avoid arrest in connection with a bribery probe, authorities said on Wednesday.

Garcia had been one of nine people a judge had ordered to be arrested on Wednesday for alleged involvement in bribes distributed by Odebrecht, a Brazilian construction company that triggered Latin America’s biggest graft scandal when it admitted in 2016 that it had paid kickbacks to politicians across the region to secure lucrative contracts.

Members of his party announced his death to crowds gathered outside of hospital Casimiro Ulloa, where he suffered three cardiac arrests and underwent emergency surgery.

President Martin Vizcarra said on Twitter that he was “consternated” by Garcia’s death, and sent his condolences to his family members.

Garcia governed as a nationalist from 1985 to 1990 before remaking himself as a free-market proponent and winning another five-year term in 2006.

He had denied wrongdoing involving Odebrecht, and blamed his legal troubles on political persecution.

“Others might sell out, not me,” Garcia said in broadcast comments on Tuesday, repeating a phrase he has used frequently as his political foes became ensnared in the Odebrecht investigation.

Interior Minister Carlos Moran said at a news conference before Garcia died that the former president had told police he needed to call his attorney after they arrived at his home in Lima to arrest him.

“He entered his room and closed the door behind him,” Moran said. “Within a few minutes, a shot from a firearm was heard, and police forcibly entered the room and found Mr. Garcia sitting with a wound in his head.”

According to a report by Independent Nigeria, the tragedy occurred barely four days after the 2019 Batch “A” corps members reported for the three weeks orientation course at the Wailo NYSC camp in Ganjuwa Local Government Area of Bauchi State.

It was gathered that on that fateful morning of April 1, Miss Magdalene had reportedly complained to NYSC officials about her protracted asthma illness and how she would not be fit to attend the ‘morning meditation’ but her complainants fell on deaf ears.

Against her will, she was forced to attend the ‘meditation’ and collapsed a few minutes later. She was immediately attended to by corps member doctors and nurses, but when attempts to resuscitate her were not yielding results, she rushed to ATBUTH to save her life.

Further inquiries from medical doctors at the hospital concerning what could have led to the untimely death of Miss Magdalene had no answers as they were not authorized to speak to anyone about her demise.

It was learned that Miss Magdalene Yohanna, an orphan, sponsored her education throughout her higher institution. She has been buried at her home town in Kaduna amidst tears and pain.
