The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Part (PDP) at a news conference called at his Legacy House office today announced the decision of the National Working Committee of the party to rescind the suspension of the governor of Sokoto state. This followed a meeting between the Presidential Committee on the PDP Crisis set up by the party and the Presidency. It was also believed that appeals made to the party by the Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum, Chief Godswill Akapbio might have softened the minds of the party.
It would be recalled that the PDP suspended Governor Wamakko after he had allegedly shown disrespect to the office of the party Chairman by refusing to respond to a query issued to him.

2015: We’ll drag Buhari into race –CPC
The acting chairman of Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, Katsina State chapter and former gubernatorial candidate of the party in the state, Hon. Faruk Adamu Aliyu, yesterday declared that northerners would force former Head of State, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, to contest the Presidency again in 2015.
Aliyu who was speaking as ‘Guest of the Week’ on a Kaduna-based radio, ‘Liberty FM’ noted that though Buhari could decline to contest the next presidential election, his supporters would pressure him to the extent of making him change his mind.
Aliyu, a former Minority Leader in the House of Representatives, averred that at the moment, no one has the qualities of Buhari “to rescue the nation.” According to him, “we wanted an alliance or merger because of the Presidency, because ACN does not need CPC or ANPP to win gubernatorial election in the South-West of the country; they already have their governors.

Hassan Rouhani wins Iran presidential election
Reformist-backed cleric Hassan Rouhani has won Iran's presidential election, securing just over 50% of the vote and so avoiding the need for a run-off.
Tehran Mayor Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf was well behind in second place.
Turnout was estimated at 72.2% among the 50 million Iranians who were eligible to vote to choose a successor to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is scheduled to ratify the vote on 3 August.
The new president will then take the oath in parliament.
Surge of support
The winning candidate needed more than 50% of all ballots cast, including invalid ones, to avoid a run-off.
Voting was extended by five hours on Friday evening to allow more people to cast their ballots. Add a comment

Both Pakistan and Nigeria rank in the top five for Google searches of the term "gay sex pics" and "anal sex pics." Kenya, another vehemently anti-gay nation, ranked first for both searches.Add a comment
Boko Haram Member's Father Hands Him Over to JTF in Maiduguri
A 60-year old Maiduguri based businessman, Friday, turned in his son, a member of the deadly Boko Haram sect, to the Joint Task Force (JTF), Operation Restore Order.
It was gathered from a source within the family that the son before departing from the family house few days ago had threatened to kill his father.
But to everyone’s surprise the son returned home some days later, pleading with his father to give him refuge from the soldiers, who have started a clampdown on the sect.
The source said the son "after confessing all his crimes, including how he participated in killing of people and looting of banks to his father, the old man decided that it was against his conscience to keep a killer-son in his home, so decided to turn him in." Add a comment
