“I’m no threat to Ekweremadu” – Senator Ahmed Lawan

Published

on

Leader of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, said his recent emergence in that position should pose no threat to the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu. Lawan debunked insinuations that his emergence was a threat to the Deputy Senate Leader, Ike Ekweremadu on Monday, January 16, 2017.

We
are looking forward to working together in a brotherly way in the APC
caucus and indeed, with senators in other political parties
,’’ Lawan said.
Lawan
said he would consolidate the unity and stability of All Progressives
Congress (APC) caucus in the upper legislative chamber.
Lawan stated this on Monday in Abuja when he visited the APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun and members of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).
According to him, my emergence was all about party supremacy expressed by members in the senate.
The
lawmaker, however, thanked God for his new role, which, he said, would
address the party`s leadership crisis in the senate as well as unify its
members.
He said that with the APC united in the senate, it had no reason not to deliver its campaign promises to Nigerians.
As much as the people were expecting more from the party, the leadership is already working to improve their lot.

“Now, we have a
united APC caucus in the Senate and in the House of Representatives; we
have no reason not to perform to the expectations of Nigerians within
the constraints of our economy,
’’ he said.
Lawan
assured that the new structure in the party’s positions in the National
Assembly would transform into better productivity for the Federal
Government and better living for Nigerians.
Thanking
his colleagues for nominating him as their leader, he promised
efficient and effective service delivery through loyalty, commitment and
dedication, while maintaining a perfect link between the chamber and
the Presidency.

Receiving
the lawmaker, Odigie-Oyegun said that it was gratifying to see the
party`s caucus in the senate united and ready to take full control of
situations.
He expressed optimism that Nigerians
would begin now to experience real change as the APC-led government was
poised to deliver true democracy dividends to the people.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Lawan emerged as Senate Leader on Jan.10, dethroning Sen Ali Ndume who held the position from the beginning of the 8 Assembly.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

on

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
