APC condemns violence during its state congresses

Published

on

John Oyegun - The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

All Progressives Congress
(APC), has condemned cases of violence during the conduct of  its state
congresses on Saturday to elect delegates for its national non-elective
convention. The party Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun,  condemned the development in a statement in Abuja on Thursday.

He,
however, noted that most of the state congresses were peaceful and
conducted in compliance with guidelines and directives given by the
party to the appointed congress committees.
He added that the party found cases of violence in Rivers and Kaduna states quite disturbing.
“The
party equally regrets and condemns the attack on the Nigeria Union of
Journalists  Secretariat in Kaduna, which resulted in injuries to two
journalists.
“The party will
investigate the reported cases and take necessary action in line with
its constitution against whoever is found culpable,”
Odigie-Oyegun said.
He
congratulated and commended all the states whose exercises were
peaceful and promised that the party would examine reported cases of
grievances with a view of addressing them.
A fraction of APC in Kaduna State had petitioned the party´s leadership on the state congress which they said did not hold.
A
member of the fraction, Sen. Shehu Sani, who represents Kaduna Central
in the Senate, had alleged that the delegates’ list for the election was
altered and that due process was not followed in the conduct of the
congress.

“They sat down in the palace of their gods to write names and sent it down here for us to accept; that can never happen,” Sani had said.
He called on the national leadership of APC to rescue the party in Kaduna State from imminent destruction.

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
