Kogi: Former PDP lawmaker, Makama joins APC



A prominent former member of the Kogi state House of Assembly, Amb. Friday Sani, who is known for opposing governor Yahaya Bello in the state has joined the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The two term lawmaker, who represented Igalamela Odolu, told newsmen at the APC national secretariat in Abuja that he decided to join the ruling party having reconciled with governor Yahaya Bello.

Sani said the Chairman of the APC National Caretaker Committee reconciled him with his governor and they are now on the same page politically.

He also declared that he will support the presidential ambition of governor Bello.

“Owing to the prevailing circumstances and the situation on ground, politically today as a politician you will always choose options that are available for you as a politician to be able to chart your course and that’s the cause of your people, the only option now in the circumstance I have found myself is All progressive Congress and I have decided to join it.

“I was still the member of the PDP up till tw hours ago when the membership card of the PDP was actually thorne and I actually change my party to the APC and I didn’t do this alone, I did this in full consultation of my people.

“I have a very large followership and the discussion for my decamping that took place today started two to three weeks ago and ever since then I was consulting with my people and today history is made as I decided to change my political party to the All Progressiverogressive Congress.

“My reasons are very obvious I’m a believer of all people, I’m a believer of developments, I am a believer of safety of my people and that is why I have been able to check the variables and the options that are available politically right now and I decided that the best option for me in the circumstance that I found myself and to be able to stand for my people is the All Progressive Congress.”

Speaking on the presidential ambition of governor Bello, Sani said he would support the governor fully.

“Let me put it on record that as far as I’m concerned and those who believe in me, the ambition of governor Yahaya Bello for President is totally endorsed by me and why did I say this? His Excellency governor Yahaya Bello has created history in our state, this is the first time a kogite built up the courage to say I want to become the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria with this history I have no alternative than to go with him after all I don’t have an Igala man who has the same ambition. So if a kogi man will become President why?”

Supreme Court Victory: Atiku Felicitates with Governors Fubara and Kefas



* Asks Nigerians to Always Seek Lawful Means in Seeking Redress

By Ojone Grace Odaudu

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has felicitated with Governors Simi Fubara of Rivers State and Agbu Kefas of Taraba State respectively on the affirmation of their electoral victories by the Supreme Court.

In a post on his ‘X’ handle, the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 elections described the victory as not only for the governors, but also the Peoples Democratic Party, the Nigerian electorate and all lovers of democracy and justice.

He enjoined all Nigerians to be vigilant and to always rely on lawful means in seeking redress as he has always done.

The post:

“I celebrate with governors @SimFubaraKSC of Rivers State and @GovAgbuKefas of Taraba State, whose victory at last year’s gubernatorial election polls were unanimously affirmed today by the Supreme Court. No doubt this is not just personal victory but victory for the PDP family, the Nigerian electorate, and all lovers of Democracy and Justice.

Indeed, their victory has reinforced the hope of the survival of our democracy, which citizens are getting disillusioned and disenchanted with the APC’s win-at-all-cost policy and brazen disregard for the rule of law.

I enjoin all Nigerians to be vigilant and to always rely on lawful means in seeking redress as I have always done, and by the grace of God, we shall triumph.

Accept my congratulations, Your Excellencies. -AA”

The Supreme Court on Friday affirmed the elections of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, effectively killing the appeals filed by the governorship candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party and the Labour Party in the state.

Similarly, the apex court also upheld the election of Bauchi State governor, Senator Bala Mohammed, ruling against the appeal by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress,

In a twist of fates, the court upturned the verdict of the court of appeal which nullified the election of Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano State, saying that the appellate court’s decision to uphold the tribunal’s earlier decision was wrong.
