John Asiemo, also known as Daddy Showkey, a veteran singer, has condemned the bandits’ attack on the Nigerian Defense Academy.

On Wednesday, Daddy Showkey posted a video to his Instagram page in which he described the attack as a “huge disgrace to the country.”

In the early hours of Tuesday, gunmen dressed in army uniform stormed the Nigerian Defence Academy in Afaka, Kaduna, killing two officers and kidnapping one.

Naija News 247 reports that the gunmen entered the NDA permanent site along Airport Road, Afaka, in the Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State, around 1 a.m., through a broken fence, catching residents off guard.

The gunmen, who moved around the premises, apparently caught the officers on duty off guard because they were dressed in military uniform. Daddy Showkey condemned the attack, calling it a national shame and disgrace.

“It is a national shame and embarrassment for Nigeria. Our pride, the Nigeria Defense Academy, was attacked, and you still refer to these individuals as bandits. These aren’t bandits; they’re mercenaries on their way to take over Nigeria,” he explained.

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has advised political parties to shun reckless driving during campaigns ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Peter Kibo, the Zonal Commanding Officer in charge of Ogun and Lagos State, gave the advice on Tuesday during a retreat held in Ojodu-Berger, Lagos.

The retreat had the theme: “Promotion of Strategic Partnership for Innovative Road Safety Intervention in Lagos and Ogun”.

Mr Kibo, while addressing journalists, urged party leaders and candidates across the states to advise their drivers who would be on convoys during electioneering to drive safely.

“Crashes do occur during campaigns due to reckless driving of some party drivers, that is why we are reminding, enlightening and educating them to shun attitudes of recklessness during electioneering.

“The campaigns you are doing, it is our prayers that you do it safely so that you will be able to participate, vote or be voted for during the elections.

“But when you are driving dangerously, injuring, killing and maiming the electorate or your own candidates you can see that it does not speak well.

“My advice is that you do the campaigns gently by obeying traffic rules and regulations so that your electorate and candidates can be able to vote and be voted for respectively,” he said.

Igbos will lead Nigeria after my tenure as president: Atiku

Atiku Abubakar

Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, says he would help to actualise Igbo presidency if elected in 2023.

“Why do you say I will not give Igbos a fair chance to lead the country after my tenure as president,” Mr Abubakar said on Tuesday at a PDP South-East zonal stakeholders’ meeting in Enugu.

“I did that in 2019 when I brought Obi and another Obi in 2011 and for 2023 I chose Ifeanyi Okowa, another Igbo man as my running mate, even when Ohaneze said no Igbo should contest for presidency under PDP,” the former vice president added.

Mr Abubakar added, “My brothers and sisters, I don’t address you anymore as ladies and gentlemen but brothers and sisters, it is clear that you cannot fall my love for Igbo nation.”

The PDP candidate said he had supported people from the South-West, the North-West and the South-East to be president at different times.

He said there was the need to make the country attractive to make citizens stay and contribute their quota to its development.

Mr Abubakar said his administration, if elected, would equip the youths with the required skills and competences for a modern economy, and provide quality healthcare system.

Court nullifies PDP primaries in Ogun, orders fresh election

Published

PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun state has been ordered by a Federal High Court in Abeokuta to conduct fresh primary election.

The presiding judge, Oluremi Oguntoyinbo, in his judgement nullified the elections held in May and ordered a fresh one to be held within the next 14 days.

Also, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was barred from recognising Ladi Adebutu as the gubernatorial flag bearer of the party in the 2023 election.

In the suit jointly filed by Jimi Lawal, Taiwo Olabode and Kehinde Akala, the trio had sought the court to declare the May 25 primary election null and void.

According to their argument, the PDP acted in bad faith by militarising the election venue and used an inauthentic list of delegates to carry out the process.

They also argued that the PDP electoral panel lacked the power to “unilaterally or arbitrarily impose” the delegates’ list for the primary process, since those on the list were not democratically chosen at the party’s ward, local government, and state congresses.

Mr Lawal, who is also a governorship aspirant, told Peoples Gazette that the party left the plaintiffs with no choice but to seek legal redress.

“They brought in soldiers to militarise the venue and used a fake list of delegates to achieve their aim. We had to go to court to upturn the malpractice,” he said. “The court has now ordered that a fresh primary be conducted and that the authentic list of delegates is used.”

Commenting on the judgement, counsel to the plaintiff, Thaddeus Idenyi, said “the PDP will have to put their hats together and then conduct a fresh primary as ordered by the court.

“This time around, the court was specific that they have to use the list that has been certified by INEC because after the primary, those lists were submitted to INEC as parts of its report of covering those ward congresses held, so the court has now said that is the list which must be considered in the conduct of the fresh primaries, so the PDP had to just put their house together and use those lists to conduct a fresh primary,” Mr Idenyi added.
