APC chieftains express delight over PDP senator George Sekibo’s sack

Published

on

Chief Emeka Bekee, the Secretary, All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers, says the victory of Chief Andrew Uchendu at the Rivers Election Petition Tribunal is a confirmation of the party’s popularity. The
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the tribunal, sitting in
Abuja, on Thursday declared Uchendu as the winner of the December re-run
election for Rivers East Senatorial seat.

The tribunal also ordered INEC to withdraw the Certificate of Return from Mr George Sekibo (PDP) and give it to Uchendu as the duly elected senator representing Rivers-East Senatorial District.
Bekee told NAN in Port Harcourt on Thursday that the party was very delighted.
“As
a party, we are very delighted because when we told Rivers people that
PDP took our mandate, we believed that the tribunal would do justice to
it.
“We strongly believe that the appeal tribunal will affirm what the lower tribunal has done.
“As an APC member, I can tell you that the party is very delighted, happy and satisfied with the judgment.”
Bekee urged the APC party members to remain strong and focused.

In his reaction, Dr Chidi Lloyd,
the immediate past majority Leader of the Rivers House of Assembly,
said that the victory was in support of the party’s message that
politicians should allow votes to count.
“It only confirms what we have been saying that people should learn how to win elections and not to use crude means.
“The cookies have started crumbling; Rivers people know how Sen. Sekibo was declared winner,” he said.
Lloyd
alleged that INEC’s returning officer for the River-East Senatorial
election was forced at gunpoint, and after being beaten, to declare the
sacked Senator the winner.

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

Published

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
