Boko Haram is a Strategic Plan to Destroy the North-Buhari
I was with All Progressives Congress' train that went to Kano Government House to invite Governor Musa Kwankwaso to join the league of progressives in the country, determined to bring about the change we need. I joined the train courtesy of a friend of mine who was with one of the APC governors present in Kano. I joined the delegation from the airport, at the instance of my friend who insisted I shifted my flight due for Lagos that afternoon. I felt elated that I was being part of unfolding history. Indeed I still feel happy that I was there especially after the fraternity I saw, the sign of hope for those looking for change as exhibited that day by the reception accorded the delegation by Governor Kwakwaso. Various members of the delegation spoke very well about the importance of joining hands together to remove the incompetent PDP government. Add a comment
Atiku, Anenih clash over PDM
Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, and the Chairman, Board of Trustees, BoT, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Tony Anenih, are set to clash over the control of the Peoples Democratic Movement, PDM.
PDM had been registered as a political party by Atiku’s associates while Anenih and some chieftains of the PDP insist the movement is an integral part of the ruling party. In a show of strength, the Anenih’s PDM is meeting in Abuja today to take a stand on the movement and denounce its status as a political party.
Chairman of the PDM (the association not the political party), Senator Abubakar Mahdi, insisted yesterday that the movement under his leadership “remains an integral part of the PDP.”
Mahdi said that ahead of a meeting of PDM’s founding fathers and elders committee slated for today in Abuja, the movement worked with other political associations in 1998 to form the PDP.
He stated that no decision had been taken by the movement to renounce its prime place in the historical evolution of the PDP, pointing out that how to maintain this enviable place would top the agenda of the Abuja meeting of the movement. Add a comment
Princewill to Amaechi 'Moving from PDP to APC is Like Moving From ManU to Arsenal'
In a warning to Rotimi Amaechi, Tonye Princewill, a former Action Congress gubernatorial candidate in Rivers State says moving from the People's Democratic Party, PDP, to the All Progressive Congress, APC, is like moving from Manchester United Football Club to Arsenal.
Princewill said this on his twitter profile. It would be recalled Arsenal has been on a losing streak necessitating football pundits to bet on clubs with better prospect such as Manchester United.
As usual, we bring you his tweet below;

PDP crisis: Jonathan orders Oyinlola reinstated
… We’ll commit Tukur to Prison if he refuses, says new PDP
…as party’s National Secretary
To avert a likely breakdown of order at the headquarters of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, President Goodluck Jonathan may have ordered the National Security Adviser, retired Colonel Sambo Dasuki to ensure that the reinstated National Secretary of the party, Prince Olugunsoye Oyinlola is not prevented from assuming his office this week.
The Baraje led new PDP also has vowed to storm the party headquarters by tomorrow to enforce the Appeal Court, Abuja judgment delivered by Justice Joseph Tor which recognised Prince Oyinlola as the validly elected National Secretary of the PDP.
Against the expectation that Oyinlola would be sworn in on Monday, Sunday Mirror gathered from a highly placed PDP source that a directive from the presidency has asked that the embattled former Governor of Osun state may not need to be sworn in rather, “he will walk back to his office, report to Tukur and assume his responsibilities as the chief administrative officer of the party. “Since he has taken oath of office in March last year for the four year tenure, he will not be required to take fresh oath.
