PDP ‘ll lose Bayelsa governorship poll to APC, says Timi Frank

Breaking News, News Feature, Politics
A political activist and former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank, has insisted that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would lose the forthcoming Governorship election in Bayelsa state for “choosing to field a weak candidate.” He therefore congratulated the candidate of the APC in Bayelsa state, David Lyon, ahead of the elections. Frank in a statement in Abuja on Friday, noted that the APC’s candidate is better placed to win the elections in view of the fact that the PDP has curiously chosen to field a weak candidate against the APC’s flag-bearer. “APC will win the forth-coming governorship election in Bayelsa State seeing the weak candidate (Governor Seriake) Dickson and the PDP have chosen as their flag-bearer,” Fra...

Delta Local Government Elections: We won fair and square across Delta State – PDP

Politics

To us, these comments are nothing more than the typical whining and bellyaching always expected from sore losers, as a diversionary ploy and smokescreen to cover up their obviously pathetic lack of preparation for the Delta Council polls. We are extremely disappointed but not particularly surprised with the comments of Olorogun O'tega Emerhor, Delta APC leader and former governorship candidate, made from the cozy comforts and surrounding of his cou...

‘Look, Akpabio, I’m not a bastard’ — How Mu’azu opposed plan to reject Buhari’s victory

Politics
Ahmed Adamu Mu’azu, chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the historic 2015 presidential poll, furiously reacted to suggestions that he should reject Muhammadu Buhari’s victory after President Goodluck Jonathan had openly conceded. Jonathan, after congratulating Buhari in an unprecedented telephone call while the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was yet to officially announce the winner, told party members that although he had conceded to Buhari in his personal capacity, PDP was free to reject the result. Before Jonathan conceded, however, Mu’azu had threatened to do so on behalf of the party. He even stopped picking Jonathan’s calls at some point. All these are snippets of the intrigues that followed Jonathan’s defeat — as narrated by Bolaji...
