APC Berates Police for Disrupting Another Pro-Amaechi Rally

The Presidency and the Nigerian Police High Command have come under attack over the brutal disruption of Tuesday’s rally in the federal capital, Abuja, organised by the Anti-Corruption Network to protest against the endless impunity being perpetrated in Rivers State by the Police Commissioner, Mr. Mbu Joseph Mbu.
“That the police could brazenly roll out its arsenal and viciously crush a peaceful protest by Nigerian citizens is not only regrettable but also condemnable as it cannot be defended under any circumstances. 
"It beats the imagination why the police in the federal capital ruthlessly attacked innocent protesters, including pregnant women and children, with large doses of teargas while also shooting sporadically and spraying hot water on the marchers in a desperate bid to crush the rally.”

Atiku Opens Up On 2015: My Deal With Tinubu and Buhari

He is a man who has regularly presented himself as a true democrat in the Nigerian political space. His love for the democratic process may be as a result of his long years of sowing the seed of bridge-building across the country. He is, therefore, may be expecting to reap from where he has sown. 
Atiku Abubakar, had a very interesting chat with some journalists on political issues. Excerpt:

FG releases modalities for national conference

The  Federal Government on Thursday released the modalities for  the nomination of delegates to the  proposed national conference.

The government, in a statement read  to journalists by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator Anyim  Pius Anyim,  said the conference, which would hold in the Federal Capital Territory ,would last for  three months.

 Present at the media briefing were the Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee on National Dialogue, Senator Femi Okurounmu, and  the  Secretary, Dr. Akilu Indabawa.
 No fewer than    492 nominees  are  expected to participate in the  conference whose  full name shall be: “The National Conference.”

President Jonathan begs Senators, Reps to pass 2014 budget

President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday appealed to members of the National Assembly to expedite action  on the 2014 Appropriation Bill  in order to enable  his administration to deliver dividends of democracy to the people.

Jonathan made the appeal during a stakeholders’ forum of the Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme held inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

 When the debate on the bill entered the second day in the Senate on Wednesday, some Peoples Democratic Party and All Progressives Congress senators had described the document as anti-people.
They chided the  Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, for the way the bill was packaged and therefore called for its review.

Mark’s absence stalls formal defection of Saraki, others

The absence of Senate President David Mark  from Thursday’s Senate plenary, stalled the defection of  11 aggrieved Peoples Democratic Party senators to the All Progressives Congress.
The aggrieved senators had written to Mark informing him about their decision to leave the PDP for the APC.

But during Wednesday’s plenary, neither the Senate President nor the 11 senators made reference to the letter, which  ought to have been read  on the floor of the Senate.
But during plenary on Thursday, the  Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, who presided over session, did not  read the  letter.

He said Mark had told him that he had scheduled a meeting with the aggrieved senators whenever he returned from his official trip to Jigawa State.

The Fight Between President Jonathan and Governor Amaechi

On that fateful day when First Lady Patience Jonathan snatched a microphone from Gov Rotimi Amaechi at a function and in the public glare, thoroughly rebuked him for undermining her Okirika people, it didn’t occur to her that she might have murdered sleep by attacking an elected governor.

But observers are quick to also trace the crisis to a number of other issues such as ethnicity rivalry between Ikwere and Okirika ethnic nationalities in Rivers State, envy, political high handedness, naked ambition, undue police interference and unhealthy rivalry between former associates and the race for 2015.

Rivalry between the Okirika and Ikwere ethnic group

Randy Pastor Caught For Raping A Teenage Girl In His Church

The Police in Imo State have arrested the General Overseer of a popular Spiritual Church in Ikeduru council area of the state, for allegedly having constant illicit affair with a 13-year-old girl. The girl's father, a widower, said the pastor severally raped his daughter between 2010 and 2013.
According to him: “Between 2010 and 2013, I was sick and a friend of mine introduced me to the prophet. Because of my sickness, I lost my job as a luxury bus driver and also my accommodation in Naze Owerri. 
“Consequently, the prophet offered me accommodation in his house which he also uses as church. I moved in with my two little daughters. Because of my condition then, I did not know that the prophet was taking advantage of my predicament to defile one of my daughters.

Boko Haram Cut Our Church Members Throats –Bishop Reveals

The situation in Adamawa was so bad that, “Some people tried to escape through the windows and the attackers shot at them. They cut peoples’ throats.”
This was how the Catholic Bishop of Yola, Mamza Stephen, captured the calamity that befell worshippers at a Catholic church in Waga Chakawa in Adamawa State when Boko Haram insurgents struck last Sunday.

“Everybody is living in fear. There is no protection. We cannot predict where and when they are going to attack. People can’t sleep with their eyes closed,” the Bishop lamented.

Amaehi Creates 'Local Government' For Non-Indigenes as Rivers APC Concludes LG Harmonization

*Amaechi A True Nationalist, Hero and Hope of the Non-Inigenes in Rivers ––Barr. Chinye

Leader of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State, Governor Rotimi Amaechi, has created what the State Commissioner for Commerce/Industry, Barr. Chuma Chinye, described as the 24th Local Government Area of Rivers State. The new ‘local government’ is the Non-Indigene political pressure Group (NIPPG) in APC Rivers which, according to Barr. Chinye, is to protect the political interests of the over 1.5 million non-indigenes residing in Rivers State. 
Barr. Chinye the Political Leader of NIPPG, who hails from Delta State, affirmed the need to set up this structure – the first of its type in any part of Nigeria – saying that it is in keeping with the antecedents of Gov. Amaechi as a great leader whose patriotism is legendary and qualifies him as a true nationalist. In short, he is the hero and hope of the non indigenes in Rivers State if the ways he has carried the non indigenes along in his administration are anything to go by, Barr Chinye affirms.

Senators didn’t flout our order –APC

The All Progressives Congress on Tuesday dismissed reports that its senators flouted the party’s directive to members in the National Assembly to withdraw cooperation with the Executive until the restoration of law and order in Rivers State.

The party said the reports were borne out of the gross misunderstanding of filibustering as a democratic tool to stop legislation by obstructive tactics.

This clarification was contained in a statement signed by the party’s Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on Tuesday.

All PDP aspirants must go through primaries –Mu’azu

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, has said  the party has no plan to anoint anyone for any elective office in 2015.

Rather, he said each contestant  would  emerge through transparent primaries  to  be conducted by the party.

He said members of the party would also be allowed to choose their leaders without any interference from the national leadership of the party.

Mu’azu spoke at the  Wadata Plaza, Abuja   national secretariat of the party    on Tuesday when he received  a PDP delegation from Akwa Ibom State  led by   Governor  Godswill  Akpabio.

PDP, APC Senators clash over 2014 budget

The Senate on Tuesday began debate on the 2014 Appropriation  bill with members disagreeing  along party lines on its passage.

While the Peoples Democratic Party senators commended the bill  and called for its immediate approval,  their  All Progressives Congress  counterparts sought its rejection and return to the Executive for a rejig.

To the PDP senators, the appropriation bill should be passed  because  it would promote economic growth and add fillip to the Transformation Agenda of the Goodluck  Jonathan administration.
But the APC lawmakers believed that it was not packaged to empower the people and  address  insecurity in the country, especially in the  North-East.

Kwankwaso to President Jonathan: You’re not qualified to contest in 2015

As President Goodluck Jonathan prepares for his re-election next year, Kano State Governor, Dr. Musa Rabiu Kwankwaso has warned that Jonathan is not qualified to contest for presidency in 2015.

According to the governor, any attempt by Jonathan to run in the next poll will amount to a third term in office, which is not acceptable to most Nigerians.

Kwankwaso, who spoke to journalists in Abuja, yesterday, advised President Jonathan to take urgent steps to solve the raging insecurity challenges in the North-East and stabilise the Nigerian economy and take a  bow from governance in 2015, when he would have attained the eight-year maximum limit stipulated by the Nigerian Constitution.

UTME: Fear of computer-based test sparks controversy

Towards the next Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination holding in April, stakeholders want the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board to create more exam centres. But the board says ‘No’, CHARLES ABAH writes

Stakeholders have appealed to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board to revisit its examination plans for the forthcoming Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.
They made the appeal on Monday, saying there was the need for the board to open more examination centres for candidates seeking to write its paper test.

While this year’s Paper Pencil Test and Dual-Based Test will hold on April 5, the agency has yet to fix a date for the Computer-Based Test.

Naira falls to four-month low

The naira fell for a fourth day after the Central Bank of Nigeria removed limits on how many dollars can be sold to foreign-exchange bureaus, driving demand for the United States currency.

According to a Bloomberg report, the currency of Africa’s second-biggest economy retreated as much as 1.6 per cent to 163.21 per dollar, the lowest on an intraday basis since September 18, before trading one per cent down at 162.30 in Lagos.

Without intervention by the CBN, it may retreat to 165 per dollar this week, said an analyst at the Ecobank Transnational Inc, Mr. Kunle Ezun, in Lagos.

The 2015 Valentine-Election Ruse: Nigerian Youths Must Val Their Future

Nigeria’s youth, a demographic of over 43% of the nation’s population, have many things in common: They are the most unemployed, the most marginalized and least represented in political office, the most used as political thugs, the most socially active, and the most vocally resentful of the chronically recycled and retrogressive leadership political climate, of all groups.
But in addition to these, there is something else that tags this robust population:

UPDATE: El-Rufai Regains Freedom from SSS

After 15 long hours of interrogation, the Department of State Security Services has released ex-Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, from its custody in Abuja.
“Mallam El-Rufai will not be silenced. He will continue to do his patriotic duty of challenging INEC and the security agencies to guarantee the climate for free and fair elections in Nigeria by desisting from partisanship and the embrace of impunity.”


The PDP, the Presidency and their paid agents in the Yinka Odumakins of this world, [the Victor Umehs, the Dan Nwanyawus], the rudderless Afenifere gang and the remnants of the activist class, now turned Jonathan apologists, have been up in arms since APC issued the directive to its lawmakers to block executive bills.
The bad mouthing, the winning, the sentimental arguments and the crying wolf where there is none by these groups is so laughable and reeks of ignorance and mischief.
As expected, Odumakin, multiple agent of state - who straddles the worlds of being a pseudo-progressive and that of being an anarchist - as expected was one of the first voices to condemn the APC. Riding on the castrated Afenifere platform, Odumakin condemned APC’s plan to block all legislative proposals. 
Because they were in a hurry to deliver the message of their masters, they had no time to think on their own, thus their ignorance about democratic principles and what obtains in a country with two strong parties is on display was immediately exposed to discerning minds.

Dear President Jonathan, Corruption Is The Problem of Nigeria

“Corruption is not the cause of all the problems confronting Africa. In terms of security, Boko Haram is the biggest challenge we (Nigeria) have at the moment.” – President Jonathan 
“For Mr. President to have said that corruption is not our number one problem that must be the misstatement of the century.” – Itse Sagay (SAN)
The first quote is the remark of President Goodluck Jonathan at the just concluded World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, while making his contribution to a televised debate titled, “Africa’s Next Billion.”

The president has completely erased any iota of doubt that he has a thorough grasp of critical issues like the prevalent endemic corruption now crippling governance that demands his urgent attention as president of Nigeria and frontline leader on the continent. One would expect that thorough research should be done by his fawning aides before he speaks at such a forum. A statement like that is the least expected from the president of one of the most corrupt countries in the world

Boko Haram kills 74 in church, village

Boko Haram insurgents on Sunday evening attacked another  village in Borno  State,   killing a soldier and 51 other persons.
About 16 others, including policemen  and traders, were injured  while  300 houses were  set ablaze  by the insurgents  in Kawuri, Konduga Local Government Area of the state.

Another  set of the Boko Haram fighters,   armed with guns and explosives, had earlier on Sunday  killed 22 people at a  church service in  Waga Chakawa, Adamawa State.

The Kawuri  village  attackers were said to have planted several explosives in  the community  after attacking the nearby weekly market as  traders  were busy getting ready to close their stalls.

State Security Servie (SSS) detains El-Rufai

The State Security Service on Monday detained a former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Malam Nasir el-Rufai at its headquarters in Abuja.

The SSS operatives detained el-Rufai, who is the interim Deputy Publicity Secretary of the opposition All Progressives Congress, when he reported at their office at about 9.20am in respect of the invitation he received for making “an inciting statement.”

Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi, accompanied by Senator Chris Ngige, drove el-Rufai to the SSS office.

INEC releases timetable for Ekiti, Osun gov polls

The Independent National Electoral Commission on Monday announced June 21 and August 9  respectively for the 2014 governorship elections in Ekiti and Osun states.

The INEC Secretary, Mrs. Augusta Ogakwu, in the breakdown of activities for the Ekiti poll said, “April 14 is the “last date for the conduct of party primaries, including resolution of disputes arising from the primaries.”

While campaigns for the elections in Ekiti State will commence on March 23 and ends on June 19, the collection of  forms for the election by political parties is scheduled to begin on April 1.

Ministers with political ambitions should resign – President Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan   may have  given ministers who have political ambitions to resign voluntarily latest by first week of February.

The PUNCH gathered  from a very competent source in Abuja on Monday, that most of those affected   are ministers who plan to contest governorship elections in their states.

The source, who added that Jonathan was mulling a cabinet shake-up in February, however,  said the minister had not resigned  because they  were not  sure that they would get the governorship   tickets in their states.

He said, “The President cannot wait endlessly for them. That is why he has given them the directive to resign voluntarily between now and February. Definitely, there will be further changes in the cabinet.”
The source, who asked not to be  named, did not say when the President ordered the ministers with political ambitions to quit.

SHOCKER! North Korea Dictator Kim Jong-un Wipes Out Uncle's Entire Family

The entire family of Kim Jong-un’s uncle, executed less than a month ago, have also been killed at the North Korean leader’s instruction, according to reports. Jang Song Thaek was put to death on December 12 at the age of 67 after making an alleged attempt to dethrone his nephew, including contemplating a military-backed coup.

Now Yonhap News Agency reports all Jang’s direct relatives were called to Pyongyang last month and executed in a bid to “clamp down on mutiny”. “Extensive executions have been carried out for
relatives of Jang Song Thaek,” a source said. “All relatives of Jang have been put to death, including
even children.”

The executed relatives include Jang’s sister Jang Kye- sun, her husband and Ambassador to Cuba Jon Yong- jin, and Ambassador to Malaysia Jang Yong-chol, who is a nephew of Jang, as well as his two sons, the sources said. The sons, daughters and even grandchildren of Jang’s two brothers were also reportedly killed.

Anti-Gay Law Update: TB Joshua Delivers A Gay Man in Church

In the wake of Nigeria’s anti-gay bill signed into law by President Goodluck Jonathan, a popular televangelist Prophet T.B. Joshua, addressed the issue of homosexuality during a live broadcast of his Sunday Service on his Emmanuel TV. A young man by the name of Tedus visited T.B. Joshua’s church and was delivered from a ‘demon’ which he claimed was the cause of his homosexual lifestyle.

While addressed the issue, T.B. Joshua said:
"God loves sinners but hates sin. We should hate the act but not the people - because sinners can be delivered and changed. Sinners can be reformed since our battle is not against the flesh and blood but against the spirit beings that cause these acts."

BREAKING: Amaechi Storms SSS Office With El-Rufai in Abuja

The atmosphere at the SSS headquarters in Abuja, we have gathered, is tensed and all the parties in the showdown are sticking to their guns. Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State and Senator Chris Ngige are among the APC leaders who, in company of ex-Minister of the FCT, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, appeared at the SSS office on Monday morning.

Governor Amaechi and others are being prevented from entering the office but they are resisting...

Governor Amaechi Is The People’s General ––Dr Ikanya

Rivers State Governor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, put his detractors to shame by braving the odds to attend last Saturday’s rally organised by the Save Rivers Movement (SRM) in Ogoni land, the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said.
“Against all odds, Governor Amaechi once more proved to be a man of his words by attending the rally against the misguided advice of his detractors, who resorted to scaremongering to dissuade him from doing so. By so doing, Governor Amaechi once more proved that he would never abandon his followers but would always be in the forefront of the crusade to defend the rights of Rivers people no matter the degree of danger ahead.
“Contrary to the impression being created by Amaechi’s detractors that he is a promoter of violence, the Ogoni rally went peacefully and successfully without any incidence of violence, thus putting the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and CP Mbu to shame.”

Impending Government Shutdown: Presidency Dares APC

The Presidency and the leading opposition party, APC, are now locked in a war of words for the opposition party’s directive to its members to shut down the affairs of Government. This came as APC House members at the weekend vowed to heed the party’s directive if the Presidency fail to stop the reign of impunity.
According to APC: "They say the non-approval of the 2014 budget will pauperize Nigerians, as if the yearly ritual of budget passing since 1999 has benefited anyone but the fat cats. In any case, of what use is a budget when the lives of citizens are at stake? Are budgets not made for the people? Do they understand that even the budgets are based largely on earnings from oil, which we cannot even produce if the violence in Rivers escalates and spreads to other oil-producing states?
"All over Gombe, our party flags, billboards and posters are being vandalized by hoodlums aided and abetted by the police. Our youth supporters are being arrested while our members are being threatened by the police and the state government officials.... This madness must stop!"

See President Jonathan’s 2015 Covenant With Nigeria

Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, 'Do not break your oath, but fulfill to the Lord the vows you have made.’ –Matthew 5:33 KJV

'You shall be careful to do what has passed your lips, for you have voluntarily vowed to the Lord your God what you have promised with your mouth. –Deuteronomy 23:23 ESV

'When you vow a vow to God, do not delay paying it, for he has no pleasure in fools. Pay what you vow. It is better that you should not vow than that you should vow and not pay'. – Ecclesiastes 5:4-5 ESV

O you who believe! Why do you say that which you do not do? It is most hateful to Allah that you should say that which you do not do. - Qur'an 61:2-3

APC Ideology is Rooted in the Welfare of the People ––Tinubu

For those who dare say the Yoruba have no leaders, we have one thing to say to them - they are hypocrites, mischief makers and rabble rousers who know nothing about Yoruba land and people. Their knowledge of history is shallow. It will be better for them to take their eyes off our decent home and spend time cleaning out the rot in their home.

Let me make a quick and important detour here to talk about the Governor of Oyo state, Senator Ajimobi of the APC. He is a true son of the soil. A pride to the Yoruba race and to the nation as a whole. An achiever who marches on against all odds. We are witnesses to the great initiatives he is taking and great strides he is making in his governance of Oyo. Under his administration, Oyo state is at the cusp and point of monumental change. He has embarked on a journey that will return Oyo to the glorious years of development witnessed in the first Republic and parts of the second Republic. I urge us all to take this journey with him.

Atiku: The Dilemma of A Political Strategist Ahead of 2015

The invitation extended to a former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, by the All Progressives Congress and the appointment of Adamu Mu’azu as national chairman of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, appears to have put the famed political strategist in a fix.
Atiku is not a new swimmer in the Nigeria’s murky political waters. He has been in politics for long enough to know how unpredictable Nigerian politicians could be. 
Followers of history would recall how Atiku was forced out of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party by his former boss, the then President Olusegun Obasanjo, prior to the 2007 presidential election. Desirous of a shot at the Presidency, Atiku teamed up with politicians in the opposition Action Congress of Nigeria, where he was handed the party’s ticket...

Use condoms, they are good for you!

Many should know by now that forgoing condoms during sex puts them at a higher risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases or getting pregnant every other month, but they still prefer not to use it.
According to a recent study conducted by the Society for Family Health, 80 per cent of the 1.8 billion sexual activities that occur in Nigeria yearly take place without condom use.

The report states that in spite of its scientifically proven efficacy in reducing the spread of the dreaded HIV infection in  the country, eight out of every 10 Nigerian men do not use condom during sexual intercourse, while the women do not insist on men wearing condoms either.

Jonathan's Third Term Ambition: Here Are The Hard Facts

Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo’s third term agenda was no secret. It cost the nation billions and stalled our affairs, corrupted our legislative offices and wasted our time for months on end. At last it was over, but not before Obasanjo ensured he paid us back for refusing his desperate desire. He ensured he imposed on us a dying president and a vice of uncertified character and credentials described in cables by Oronto Douglas as “part of the system of corruption that had impoverished the Niger Delta for decades.”

Then NSA, Aliyu Gusau, according to other cables, confided in foreign officials about Obasanjo’s choice —treacherously not telling us, the masses whose rights it was his sworn duty to protect— as follows:

After years of crisis and political violence, Central Africa Republic began the first phase of its transition to democratic civilian governance by electing Catherine Samba-Panza to act as an interim President.
A study of the political history of the country showed that Samba-Panza is the first female to become the president of the country.

She emerged after former president, François Bozize, was presurised to stepped down by the international community amid violent clashes between Muslim and Christian groups.

The statement added that the governorship election in Ekiti State would hold on June 21, 2014 while that of Osun State would hold on August 9, 2014.

SSS storms El-Rufai’s house, arrests security guards

Operatives of the State Security Service on Friday stormed the  Maitama,Abuja residence of a former FCT Minister, Malam Nasir El-Rufai.

The operatives arrested the former minister’s guards when their bid to arrest him for making inflammatory statements on 2015 elections failed.

The operatives visited the Mambialla Street mansion twice in a Toyota Hilux vehicle around 12 pm, but were denied entry by the security guards at the gate.

Elders from four local government areas that make up Ogoni have called on the Rivers State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, to cancel his plan of leading a rally of the All Progressives Congress and the Save Rivers Movement to Bori, Khana Local Government Area on Saturday (today).

The elders, who spoke under the aegis of Concerned Ogoni Elders Forum, made this call on Friday shortly after their meeting to address the political crisis rocking the state.

Revealed: Islam Believes Jesus is coming Back —Imam Saheed

The Imam of Federal College of Technology, Yaba Mosque, Imam Saeed Salmon has revealed that Islam also believes in the second coming of Jesus Christ, emphasising that any Muslim who does not believe in it is not a true follower of the teachings of Prophet Muhammed.
“The second coming of Jesus Christ is a doctrine that every Muslim must believe. The teachings of prophet Muhammed talks extensively about this. 
"The Qua’ ran Chapter 4:157-159 teaches this but the teachings of Islam does not support that Jesus was killed or resurrected, rather, he was raised by Almighty Allah to his majesty. 
“Jesus is coming again to refute the claim of the Jews that he was crucified and to correct the doctrine of the Christians that he is the son of God...

The “Agberonization” Of Most Young Men In Benin, Edo State

Today, Benin City is a bustling metropolitan city experiencing population explosion as people from every part of Nigeria migrate to the city to work and do business. Unarguably, the Edo people are the most welcoming and least tribalistic people in Nigeria. In Benin, your next door neighbor (tenant or landlord) is mostly like a non-Benin speaking person.

The question now is what are the Benin people up to in their land? Every time I visit Benin City, I attempt to engage the locals to feel their vibes and hear their stories. For one month (December 2013 to January 2014), I went out on the street of Benin to see how the locals live and also engage them in conversation.

Before I proceed, let me state that the opinions I express here are purely based on my personal observations and the discussions I had with several people over a one month period in Benin City. The opinions are not to be viewed with tribal prism but with concern for the future of Benin people, especially young Benin males.

My first observation was that...

UNBELIEVABLE: Pastor Kills His Friend for Stealing His "Glory"

A popular Pastor who operates and resides in Oyo State, Pastor Adepoju who was a former pastor at The Apostolic Church, TAC, Oke Afata, has stabbed his pastor friend to death in his home. Adepoju left Ibadan for Osun State to meet with his friend, identified as Pastor Julius Olusoji Oguntoye in Osun State pretending to be there for a courtesy visit.

After Pastor Oguntoye welcomed him to his home, Pastor Adepoju immediately brought out a knife from his suit and stabbed his friend several times, on his head, chest and stomach. While stabbing him, he accused him of using his glory and that of his children...

I Told You to Join PDP, Why Did You Move to APC? –Jeremiah Useni Dares Reps Member

Those who think House of Reps members do not have a mind of their own will be disappointed...

Indeed, politics is an endless play out of intrigue. How else do you explain the chairman of one party asking a member of his party to decamp to a different party? But it actually happened.

The Chairman of the Democratic Peoples Party, DPP, General Jeremiah Useni, has denounced a member of the House of Reps who decamped on Tuesday from DPP to the All Progressives Congress, APC. He says he “directed” the member to decamp to PDP and was shock when he saw him in APC. Very funny!

Rivers Crisis: APC to Block All Bills, 2014 Budget from Jonathan

In response to the dangerous situation in Rivers State and other constitutional breaches by the Presidency, the APC has directed its members in the National Assembly to block all legislative proposals, including the 2014 Budget and confirmation of all nominees to military and civilian positions to public office, until the rule of law and constitutionalism is fully restored in Rivers State.
"Any cursory observer of events in Rivers State since February 2013 would be left in no doubt as to the culture of lawlessness and impunity being promoted and supported by the Presidency, and executed by the State Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mbu, who has become the de facto military Governor of Rivers State and sole administrator of the PDP in the State. 
“The conduct of Governor Amaechi represents our Party’s maturity and compliance with the rule of law in response to escalating impunity. The APC is very proud of him].”
