Breaking:We condemn INEC's postponement of Nigeria election_APC

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has condemned the postponement of the general election by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
INEC had, in the early hours of today, postponed to February 23rd, the General election earlier scheduled for today, Saturday, February 16th, 2019.
INEC chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu,while briefing newsmen at the commission’s headquarters, announced that continuing with the election as earlier scheduled for today, 16th February, 2019, was no longer feasible.
According to him,“Following a careful review of the implementation of its logistics and operational plan, and the determination to conduct free, fair, and credible elections, the commission came to the conclusion that proceeding with the elections as scheduled is no longer feasible.”
He therefore announced that the presidential and National Assembly elections had been moved to February 23, 2019.
He also said that the governorship and state assembly elections have also been moved by one week to March 9, 2019.
However, reacting to the postponement in a statement on Saturday by the spokesperson for its Presidential Campaign Council, Mr Festus Keyamo,the APC condemned the postponement but went further to urge its supporters to remain patient and determined.
The statement reads thus:
WE CONDEMN THE POSTPONEMENT OF THE ELECTIONS BUT URGE OUR TEEMING SUPPORTERS TO BE PATIENT AND DETERMINED
We have just received with great disappointment and disillusionment the announcement by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of its decision to postpone the Presidential/National Assembly and Gubernatorial/House of Assembly Elections to Saturday, February 23, 2019, and Saturday, March 9, 2019, respectively.
We condemn and deprecate this tardiness of the electoral umpire in the strongest terms possible.

Festus Keyamo

President Muhammadu Buhari had since cooperated fully with INEC by ensuring EVERYTHING it demanded to conduct free and fair elections were promptly made available to it.
This news is, therefore, a huge disappointment to us and to our teeming supporters nationwide and around the world, many of whom have come into the country to exercise their franchise.
We do hope that INEC will remain neutral and impartial in this process as the rumour mill is agog with the suggestion that this postponement has been orchestrated in collusion with the main opposition, the PDP, that was NEVER ready for this election.
We note that all the major credible demographic projections have predicted a defeat of the PDP and it seriously needed this breather to orchestrate more devious strategies to try and halt President Buhari’s momentum.
It did the same as the ruling Party in 2015, when it realized the game was up, by orchestrating the postponement of the 2015 elections by six weeks.
Now, it may be up to its old trick again. We have earlier raised the alarm that the PDP is bent on discrediting this process the moment it realized it cannot make up the numbers to win this election.
We are only urging INEC not collude with the PDP on this. We are truly worried because as early as Friday morning, some known PDP Social Media influencers unwittingly announced this postponement, but quickly deleted the message and apologized to the public that it was fake news. We do not want to be forced to a situation of announcing our total loss of confidence in INEC, because we know where that would leave our democracy.
It is in the light of the above that we wish to appeal to Nigerians and our supporters to be patient, calm and resolute despite this temporary setback.
Let us not give anyone, especially the PDP, the opportunity to plunge this nation into a crises, which is what they earnestly desire. Its imminent defeat is just a few days away.
Lastly, we wish to draw the attention of INEC and the world to observe that the PDP has clearly and openly said it plans to announce parallel results through some funny device it has procured or developed
We wish to re-iterate that it is ONLY INEC that is legally and constitutionally empowered to declare results and it constitutes an offence for anyone to do so.
We urge INEC to SPEAK UP NOW and warn the PDP to desist from this ignoble act that is capable of plunging the nation into a crisis of immeasurable proportions.
Thank you.
FESTUS KEYAMO, SAN, FCIARB(UK)
Director, Strategic Communications, APC Presidential Campaign Council

Ambrose Ali university chairman suspended over s*x assault.



Prof. Monday Igbafen, the ASUU chairman at Ambrose Alli University (AAU) has been suspended by university authorities over allegations of sexual assault.

In a report by Daily Post, Igbafen, an Associate Professor of the Department of Philosophy, was suspended after his appearance before a disciplinary committee on allegations of sexual misconduct.

This was made public in a statement signed by Edward Aihevba, the university’s spokesman, on Wednesday in Benin, Edo State capital.

The statement noted that Igbafen had been arraigned before the Senior Staff Disciplinary Committee (SSDC) on allegations of gross misconduct bordering on sexual harassment and threatening students to have sex with him in exchange for marks.

According to the statement, Igbafen was found culpable by the university’s investigative panel.

A relative of one of the victims had threatened to take the institution to the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission ICPC if Igbafen wasn’t prosecuted.

The statement reads in part:

“The university community is hereby informed that Dr. M. L. Igbafen, Associate Professor in the department of philosophy, has been suspended from duty, following his arraignment before the Senior Staff Disciplinary Committee (SSDC) on allegation of gross misconduct bordering on sexual harassment and threats of marks for sex.

He had earlier been accused of this offence and an investigative panel set up, which found him culpable and indicted. Recently, there was petition by the family of the female student involved, asking that Dr. M. L. Igbafen be brought to book, failing which the university management would be reported to ICPC for failure to act.

On receipt of the petition, the University management asked for his comments. His response was found unsatisfactory. He was therefore arraigned before the senior staff disciplinary committee (SSDC)…As due process demands, he has been suspended from the university, pending the determination of the allegation leveled against him.

He is therefore not allowed to participate or be involved in any university duties, activities or functions, except those related to senior staff disciplinary committee (SSDC) during the period of suspension”.

Reacting to the allegation levelled against him, Igbafen said he was being framed by the school management.

“If you have been monitoring development in AAU, Ekpoma, you will not be surprised that a paper like that is coming from the university administration. It is the climax of a desperate Vice Chancellor who has so many things to hide, which we will bring to the press. We have been battling the Vice Chancellor who wants to impose himself to the University. I am doing my job as ASUU Chairman, there have been several attempts to compromise me, but I refused, and when they discovered that they are unable to compromise me, the next thing is to resort to blackmail.

Ask the Vice Chancellor, when did this issue of sexual harassment happened. The issue at stake is an attempt to cow the ASUU Chairman. We will address a world press conference to address the issue.”

Emiliano sala died from head and chest injuries and had to be identified by his fingerprints



An inquest into the tragic death of Argentinian football player, Emiliano Sala has shown that he died from “head and trunk” injuries when the plane he was travelling on crashed in the English Channel.
The 28-year-old striker was travelling from Nantes, France to Wales to join his new teammates at Cardiff City, after signing a $29 million deal with his new club.

Sala’s body was recovered from the seabed wreckage last week after he disappeared on January 22 with his pilot David Ibbotson on board. Sala had to be identified by his fingerprints after his body pulled out from the wreckage of the Piper Malibu aircraft.

“Mr Sala was identified on the 7th February by means of fingerprint evidence analyses by fingerprint expert Christopher Bradbury,” Ian Parry, a senior coroner’s officer for Dorset, said.

“A post mortem was carried out after the body was taken to Holly Tree Lodge mortuary.
“Home office pathologist Mr Purdue gave the cause of death as head and trunk injuries.”

The inquest was adjourned until November 6 for a pre-inquest review.

An interim report is set to be released within a fortnight, although a full report by the Air Accident Investigation Branch will not be published for at least six months.

Bullion van driver dissapears with $1.13m



The driver of an armoured bullion van disappeared outside Paris early on Monday along with an estimated one million euros, police sources told AFP. File photo: Bullion van Cycling: World championships results The 28-year-old man had stopped in front of a Western Union office at around 6:00 am (0500 GMT) in Aubervilliers, a suburb just north of the capital, and stayed behind the wheel as two of his colleagues went inside. “When they came back out, the van and the driver were gone,” one of the sources said. The van was found soon afterwards a few blocks away with its doors wide open, but the driver and the bags of cash, worth some $1.13 million, were nowhere to be found. The two other employees had not been injured, the source said. Loomis, the armoured van company, did not return calls seeking comment. An inquiry has been opened by France’s anti-gang squad. The last major such heist was in November 2009 when Toni Musulin fled in the armoured van he was driving with at least 11.5 million euros in cash collected from a Bank of France building in Lyon. He was caught after a little more than a week on the run.
