Nigeria’s 2019 Presidency: Ex-PDP ministers to meet today in Abuja

Published

on

Some former ministers who served under the regimes of former presidents Olusegun Obasanjo, late Umaru Yar’Adua and Goodluck Jonathan are expected to meet in Abuja on Monday, July 3, Punch reports.

The ministers are members of the crisis-ridden Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
It
was gathered that the major agenda of the meeting is to deliberate on
the future of the party with the 2019 presidential election in view.
The meeting, which would exclude those who have resigned from the PDP, is said to be hosted by a former minister under Jonathan.
“Ex-PDP
ministers from 1999 to 2015 are to meet in Abuja on Monday to chart a
way forward for the party. The tendency for the forum to deliberate on
the 2019 elections and the possibility of working out mechanism towards
filling or supporting a candidate for the forthcoming presidential
election is there,”
one of the ex-ministers told Punch.
“Prof. Jerry Gana and other senior high ranking ex-ministers are expected at the meeting.”
It
was reported that the forum would also search – among them or beyond – 
for suitable and acceptable presidential candidate ahead of 2019 polls.
At
the meeting, the former ministers would also consider the option of
shopping for another political party if the ongoing legal leadership
battle does not favour them.
The majority of the forum members are allegedly behind the Ahmed Makarfi-led PDP national caretaker committee.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), based on the Court of Appeal judgment, had declared Ali Modu Sheriff the authentic national chairman of the party.
Some loyalists of Makarfi have since registered another political party, Advanced People’s Democratic Alliance, hoping to migrate there if the Supreme Court judgment upholds the Appeal court’s decision.

Some of the ex-ministers are said to be in support of the new party as a fallback option.
A former minister said, “We won’t put all our eggs in one basket as we did in Ondo State during the last governorship election.
“We are waiting for the Supreme Court to pronounce its judgement then Nigerians will know what we are up to.”
He added some  disgruntled members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are also part of the new part.

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
