Many PDP chieftains, including federal lawmakers, will soon dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi said on Thursday as formally bade the PDP farewell.


He was received into the All Progressives Congress (APC) by its national caretaker chairman, Yobe State Governor Mai Mala Buni.


Umahi received the APC flag, broom and the party card from the chairman at a reception for him in Abakaliki, the state capital.

The ceremony was attended by Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice Abubakar Malami, Governors of Atiku Bagudu (Kebbi), Sani Bello (Niger), Abubakar Badaru (Jigawa) and APC leaders from the Southeast.

Buni said Umahi’s admission into the ruling party marked a new beginning in the history of Ebonyi State.

Hailing Umahi for taking a bold step, Buni said many people were inclined to joining the APC because President Muhammadu Buhari had been fair to all, irrespective of political affiliations.

He recalled that when 27 states could not pay salaries, the President gave them bailout funds, despite political differences.

Apart from the bailout and the Anchor Borrowers Programme from which many states benefit from, Ebonyi and the Southeast states in general would be fully integrated into the national programme and policies of the present administration.

He lauded Umahi for exhibiting courage and taking a step that would liberate the Southeast, despite attacks and criticism from some quarters, urging other Southeast governors to take a cue.

Buni said Umahi’s achievements stand him out in the geo-political zone.

Exuding confidence, Umahi said APC has become a dominant party in the state, assuring that many PDP chieftains, including federal lawmakers, will soon follow his footsteps.

Umahi said: “We have remained in the PDP for a very long time with all the empty promises. So, I think it’s high time we moved.

“Today, Ebonyi State is 99.9% APC; the remaining per cent are the National Assembly members and some of our elders’ council. I know too well that all of them will soon join us in APC because in Ebonyi State, there is no opposition.

“I know what the National Assembly members are looking for and the moment they get it, they will join us in APC. I want to assure all that this new house built on equity and trust will accommodate all.

“Party should not divide us. I believe that together we will be stronger. So, there is no need for anyone to be aggrieved. It’s high time Southeast move into the APC in totality. We are tired of PDP and their empty promises.”

The governor reminded his teeming supporters and admirers that no single individual can determine the destiny of anyone without God factor.

“We have gotten our freedom now, freedom from one person deciding the faith of millions of people as seen in PDP.

“I want to assure all that everyone would be carried along. No one would be discriminated. We are going to work as a family to achieve our common goal and aspiration”.

Commending President Buhari for his support and encouragement, he said: “We must thank the leadership of the APC for giving us the opportunity to be part of the transformation in the country. Southeast must get it right now.”

In less than a week Ghana goes to polls. But events coming up before the election is not the best.

In recent times, following the resignation of Martin Amidu from the office of the Special Prosecutor, Akufo-Addo has seen ‘no peace’ over corruption allegations.

According to Martin Amidu, Akufo-Addo is the mother serpent of corruption, a statement that sparked serious controversy across the country.

In our gatherings from footage obtained, Ahalji Abass is said to have sent a delegation to see Nana Addo and they were led to the president by Dr Agyei Bawuah, Ghana’s ambassador to the United States.

In his company, a woman and a man were introduced as wife and brother of the director of Urban roads, Alhaji Abass Awolu.

The man who went with the woman explained that their mission was to mediate on behalf of Ahalji Abass because people envy and want him to be sacked from his position.

After the visitors had long talks with the President, the man stood up with a brown envelope containing the amount of $40,000 and handed it over to Akufo-Addo.

NB: The $40,000.00 bribe, according to gatherings, is to cease the constant calls for the removal of Alhaji Abass Awolu from office as the director of Urban Roads.

Seyi Law reacts to Kemi Olunloyo’s apology for calling his daughter ‘Obese’

Published

Comedian Seyi Law has dished out a reply to investigative journalist Kemi Olunloyo after she apologized to him and some other celebrities via Twitter.



Recall, in 2017, Seyi told Punch that Olunoloyo was bullying his daughter calling her obese and diabetic.

“It is obvious that Kemi has decided to bully my daughter. Bullies usually fight people who are within their age bracket and people who have the same body size as them. For her to attack my daughter only means that she is unwell,” he said.

“Who bullies a young child? Never have I seen someone her age bully a child as young as my daughter who is barely a year old.”

The popular comedian however has now set grudges aside after the journalist apologised and reached out to him. He shared a picture of Dr. Olunoloyo, saying they have both put their diffrences aside and let love lead.

“Dr. Kemi Omololu Olunloyo. I want to appreciate you for always reaching out to me and the family. We have had our differences and we have also put it behind us,” he wrote.

“You have taught me that we can amends when we make mistakes and live beyond our pasts. Thank you for being an amazing soul.”
