Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar on Sunday at the main bowl of Adokie Amiesimaka Stadium, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, won the presidential primary of the Peoples Democratic Party. Hardly did Atiku emerge as the winner than the talk of his running mate started. Investigations by our correspondents showed that the search might have been limited to the South-East region of the country.

Nine APC governors move to regain control, storm Aso Rock

2018-10-05 04:51:41

Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) stormed Aso Rock yesterday for emergency talks with President Muhammadu Buhari. The visit followed a turbulent conduct of the party’s primaries across the country and concerns by the governors that they have been deprived of their powers to influence political trends in their states. Their action calls to mind a similar intervention last year when trouble over the party’s mid-term convention and the fate of the Chief John Odigie-Oyegun National Working Committee (NWC) rocked the boat. Although the governors volunteered to fund the convention, their suggestion was overtaken by… continue reading

The panel made a U-turn on Wednesday to declare Sanwo-Olu the winner, sparking speculations that the governor would reject the… continue reading

2018-10-03 04:39:46

Toni Kroos’ mistake proved costly as Real Madrid’s goalscoring problems continued on Tuesday with a surprise 1-0 defeat to CSKA Moscow in the Champions League. Gareth Bale and Sergio Ramos were among a number of key players missing at the Luzhniki Stadium but it was Kroos’ dreadful backpass that allowed Nikola Vlasic, on loan from Everton, to put CSKA ahead after just 68 seconds. Madrid searched for an equaliser but, despite hitting the woodwork three times, were resisted by a determined CSKA defence. The reigning European champions have now failed to score in three consecutive matches. CSKA’s veteran goalkeeper Igor… continue reading
