Why I Dumped Ihedioha, PDP For APC – uche Ogbuagu reveals.

The Imo born comedian turn politician, a member representing Ikeduru in Imo State house of Assembly and a furious critics of Rochas Okorocha, Uche Ogbuagu surprised Imolites when he decamped to the All progressive Congress, the same party he took much time to criticize and tagged evil.

After much condemnation from Imolites, he has come out to give some of the reasons he decamped to APC abandoning PDP and equally threatens to expose atricities committed under 8 months of Emeka Ihedioha’s reign.

These are his reasons.

…..Nothing that is happening in Ikeduru PDP that I’m aware.

…..During August meeting of 2019, they made my wife a stranger without involving her.

…..If i call the Governor to complain, he will tell me to wait.

…..I discovered that they have completed projects in Ikeduru on papers, fully completed, but in reality jobs have not gone up to 30 percent.

…..If i call the T.C chairman of Ikeduru to know how much that was coming in, he will tell me that they said i should not tell you.

…..A day before the supreme court judgement, i got information that the Governor has ordered Imo speaker in his Asokoro residence to suspend me and the member representing Abor Mbaise and Ahiazu in the house, because it was rumoured that we complained on how the government bought refurbished cars with outrageous amounts.

…..Were you slapped by the Deputy Governor? Leave that for another day because my wife begged me to leave anything concerning Emeka Ihedioha to God, because if i open up on what i passed through, people will go crazy.

…..I discovered that entraco wasn’t doing their job very well, as refuse took over Owerri without prompt action from the government, I called different people in the government to complain, all of them told me if am incharge of dirty evacuation. When i went to radio to advise the government, i was summoned, queried and humiliated for advising the government i fought hard and contributed my quota to enthrone to power.

…..On Deputy Speakership position, during the midnight meeting to decide who will become the deputy speaker ( in the house of an Ikeduru man… referring to former minister Chuka Odom), there was an agreement to zone it to Mbaike Federal Constituency since Mbaise has Governor and Owerri federal Constituency has Senator. In Mbaike Federal constituency, Mbaitolu has the federal house of reps member (ranking) and Ikeduru was in the vantage position to produce the deputy speaker, all the leaders said noooo! I asked for them to do voting, we were all sent out from the venue and Hon. Nwawuba went in and rigged the election with Chuka Odom. I cried for the injustice and all Odom could do was to tap me on the shoulder.

…..As a chairman house committee on budget and appropriations, i didn’t contribute any quota on the budget, i was completely shut out and sidelined on the order of the government.

On PDP going to court to retrieve your position having been elected through the party…….He said he’s waiting for their letter as it will enable him to finally open up on what he suffered in the party. He said he was tactically avoiding opening up on so many things that took place in that government because of his wife’s advise.

Adams Oshiomole: If Crisis Will Help Us Win Election, Then We Need More Crisis In APC

 More Crises is Needed To win Elections

The All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, has boasted that the speculated crises rocking the ruling party did not reflect in the party’s electoral victories in the polls conducted so far.

The APC boss, who dropped the hint while playing host to Kano State chapter of the party recently, also joked that if a crisis is what it takes to win elections, he won’t mind the continuation of more crises.

While addressing a delegation led by the Governor of Kano State, Umar Ganduje, Oshiomhole quipped: “On my part, the victories we recorded especially in this rerun election is very timely.

“When I pick up newspapers and see where they are writing that APC is in crisis, and by the time you turn to the next page they will announce that APC has won this or that elections, I was like if crisis is what it takes to win elections, maybe we will continue to be in crisis.

Oshiomhole Blames PDP For ‘Third Term Agenda’


Oshiomhole Blames PDP For ‘Third Term Agenda’

Oshiomhole Blames PDP For ‘Third Term Agenda’. 

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) planted the idea of third term agenda by President Muhammadu Buhari in the sub-conscious of most Nigerians to further confuse the political space.

Oshiohmole stated this when he addressed State House correspondents after the end of a closed door meeting with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Thursday the 2nd of January 2020.

The APC chairman said: “I am surprised to see that there are people who begin to wonder why should the President reassure Nigerians that he is not going to do Third Term in office because Third Term was planted by PDP.

“It is still in the sub-consciousness of most Nigerians that the first (sic) Nigerian President tried to do Third Term, emptied the treasury to bribe members of the National Assembly and since that President left, thanks to the National Assembly, no other next President has done eight years in office.

“You can recall that President Yar’Adua unfortunately has since joined his ancestors, and President Jonathan did six years and so by the special grace of God, this President (Buhari) whom we pray will do his eight years complete in line with the provisions of the constitution.

“And because there is a level of idleness within a section of the political class people can sponsor all kinds of publications and to give doubt whether or not the President is planning to stay longer.

“And I think it is his decision that at every interval he needs to remind Nigerians that he is not about to do what a PDP President did. For me it is necessary and in any case it costs us nothing to reassure us that `I am leaving.’’Oshiomhole concluded.

Ganduje suspends ban of male, female on same tricycle

Ganduje suspends ban of male, female on same tricycle


The suspension of the proposed banning of male and female on the same tricycle in Kano was greeted with jubilation in the ancient commercial city on Tuesday.

The Nation reports that Kano state Government suspended the implementation of the proposed ban, following public outcry and outright rejection.

It should be recalled that Kano State Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje had last week announced the plan through Commander General of Hisba Board, Harun Ibn-Sina at a function held at Bayero University Kano to effect the law from January 2020.

A source from the government informed The Nation that the Governor has jettisoned the implementation of the law due to the controversy it has been generating and to safeguard the implementation from degenerating into crisis.

It was gathered that Governor Ganduje had gone into wide consultations and extensive deliberation with top government officials on their views on how to implement the law effective from January 1st,2020.

It was further gathered that he was advised not to implement the law nor make any statement about it considering the volatility of the situation on ground.

‘’You see we had to weigh the option of effecting the law or otherwise. However, considering the feelers we are getting, it may lead to break down of law and order. Because how would those that would enforce the law differentiate a married man and his wife in a tricycle or otherwise, ‘’

‘’Similarly, we viewed it that the law is not new since it has been in existence since the Ibrahim Shekarau administration just that we had wanted to dust it from the shelve for enforcement. So the governor was convinced in the discussions to look the other way and the issue would die a natural death.’’

Another source, who confided with this reporter, said that “it could be the overzealousness of the Hisbah Board, DG’s unpopular perception, which he described as dead on arrival.

However, at the time of filing in this report,the government is yet to confirm the suspension of ban, while several efforts to get the views of the Chief Secretary Press to the Governor, Mallam Abba Auwal was not successful.

Obaseki Reacts As Interpol Arrest Osazee Osemwengie Ero.

Obaseki Reacts As Interpol Arrest Osazee Osemwengie Ero For Money Laundering. 

The Edo State Commissioner for Arts, Culture and Diaspora Affairs, Hon. Osazee Osemwengie Ero, has been arrested by the Interpol in far away France.

Sources gathered that the Commissioner, who organized the recently held Edo Festivals (EDOFEST), was arrested on allegations bothering on money laundering.

The sum of $2 million cash was said to have been found on him while the arrest was being effected at the Paris Airport in the presence of the Edo state governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki,  According to Nan.

It was gathered that both the Commissioner and the Governor were on their way from China, where the both were said to have gone for business deals after which he was arrested by the interpol.

Though the news broke the internet on Sunday night, December 29, Nigerian News agency however gathered that the arrest by the Interpol took place a week back.

But reacting to the development on Monday, Governor Godwin Obaseki said the arrest has nothing to do with him or his government.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Communications Strategy, Mr Crusoe Osagie, he said he could neither confirm or deny the arrest of the commissioner.

According to him, “We learnt about the alleged arrest of the Arts, Culture, Tourism and Diaspora Commissioner, Hon. Osaze Osemwingie-Ero from unreliable sources on social media and we are unable to confirm either the alleged arrest or what might have led to it.”

“But we can confirm without equivocation that whatever the issues might be, they are totally personal and have nothing whatsoever to do with the Edo State Government or Governor Godwin Obaseki,” he added.

Meanwhile, some citizens of Edo state have called out Governor Obaseki for disowning the state commissioner, asking the governor to work on his release.

A group under the aegis of Orhionmwon Peoples Movement, where the commissioner is from, alleged that the sum found on him was given to him by Obaseki for safekeeping.

“Rather than the Governor to use his good office to ensure the release of the commissioner, Obaseki came to Benin and lied that the arrest has nothing to do with him.”

The group said the most painful aspect of it is that the Governor is busy lying against the Commissioner and not telling the world the main reason he was arrested.

“The Governor is busy saying that the Commissioner was arrested not because of the money that was found with him but because of the offence he committed some years ago while in Italy.”

This action of the Governor, according to them, is to avoid the wrath of people who may feel angry over how Edo money is being looted abroad through the aid of his Commissioner.

They further claimed that the Commissioner has no criminal record or declared wanted before, saying they were surprised that the Governor was diverting attention from the reason he was arrested.

They, however, called on well meaning Edo people to prevail on the Governor to secure the release of their son as “it is unfair for him to treat his best Commissioner in this wicked and heartless manner.”

They insisted that they will be left with no other option than to take to street protests if the state commissioner is not released before the end of this year.

Obaseki, an APC governor, is seeking re-election next year. With this development, it is being alleged in some quarters that the governor may have pulling cash abroad to prosecute the elections.

Addressing a press conference in Lagos on Monday, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture described the outgoing year 2019 as a momentous year, saying President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has taken Nigeria closer to its Next Level target.

“We urge the opposition to join hands with us to move Nigeria to the Next Level, instead of engaging in scorched-earth opposition that benefits no one”.

“2019 has been a momentous year, and this Administration has taken Nigeria closer to its Next Level target. The economy has continued to witness a strong performance, building on the steady recovery since the last recession”.

“Nigeria has not reached its debt ceiling of 25% in total public debt stock to GDP (Debt/GDP), as it is currently on 18.99%, but its debt service to revenue ratio has been higher than desirable, which explains why the government is moving ahead with its economic diversification efforts, in addition to increasing oil and non-oil revenues and widening the tax base,” he said.


This is very essential because the country which was referred to as a developing country needs to take a new stand in terms of changes of names and its way of recog in the country and outside the country.
