A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), SKC Ogbonnia, says President Muhammadu Buhari will break the law if he accepts the N45 million expression of interest and nomination forms bought for him by a group.

He argued that no individual or other entity is expected to donate more than one million naira to any candidate.

4). A former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, on Thursday, said if President Muhammadu Buhari was indeed uncompromising on corruption as claimed by the presidency, he would not have tolerated the reinstatement of sacked Chairman of Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina. He also said Buhari wouldn’t have allowed the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun who has been accused of forgery to remain in his cabinet.

5). All presidential aspirants on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have signed an undertaking to work together and accept whoever emerges as the candidate of the party for the 2019 general elections. Sen. Emmanuel Bwacha (PDP) Taraba South), disclosed this in an interview with journalists on Thursday at PDP Secretariat in Jalingo.

Harrysong had “Don’t cry when I die. Celebrate! Put up a kingmaker concert; empower more youths. I have lived. I have done my bit. Carry on in grace. TEKERO? I LOVE YOU ALL.#altersoldier.” But a statement by Alterplate Spokesman, Desmond Chima, said the award-winning musician had been suffering depression but that arrangements have been made to provide him psychological help.
