The Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP) is opened to new to members, but there will not be special
privilege for anybody, its national chairman Sen. Ahmed Makarfi, has
said. Makarfi made the statement on
Thursday in Abuja when he received a delegation of PDP Rescue Group, led
by its chairman, Amb. Wiberforce Juta.
Makarfi pledged that the party would create level-playing field for all its members.

“We
are open to reconciling with everybody. We are open to accepting new
entrants into the party, but no special privileges for anybody coming
into the party.
“That is not an
issue to be contemplated. No exclusivity. It will be inclusive without
any special privilege to anybody or group of individuals.
“That is how the ruling party got it wrong. We should learn from that.
“What
we need to do is that we will create level-playing field; and we don’t
lord it over those who have slaved for the party,’’
Makarfi said.
The
chairman stressed the need for the party to evolve mechanism for
dedicated and loyal party men and women, stressing that that is how the
members could remain committed.
“If there is no such mechanism,
people can question themselves; why do you have to continue exhibiting
such loyalty and commitment to the party?
“People can as well be nomadic politicians and migrate to where the pasture is green for whatever reasons.
“In some African countries, we didn’t hear of this kind of mobility, but in Nigeria, we are nomadic politicians.
“We have many nomadic politicians and they should behave well. They will be welcomed but I stand by what I have said earlier,” t
he chairman insisted.
Speaking
earlier, the leader of the delegation, Juta commended Makarfi for his
magnanimity for extending a hand of fellowship to Sen. Sheriff and his
followers.
“We hereby urge Sen.
Sheriff and his supporters to positively respond to this gesture to
avail themselves to the abundant opportunities that abound in the PDP.
“This is how it should be and we are thankful and proud to belong to this democratically civilized PDP family,’’ Juta said.
He
urged the chairman to appoint credible party members to be charged with
the responsibility of conducting credible congresses and the forth
coming non-elective and substantive elective conventions.
Addressing a separate press conference the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Mr Dayo Adeyeye, expressed optimism that the PDP would reclaim South-West states in 2019 if it is united.
He said that the party lost the states due to internal crisis the region.
On
the Anambra governorship election, Adeyeye said that the peace effort
of the party in the state was already yielding fruits and indication
that the party would win the election slated for November 18.
He said that a substantive caretaker committee for the state would be constituted by next week.

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
