2023: Tinubu Speaks About Evil Forces As His Message To New CAN President Emerges

Muslim-Muslim Ticket: New CAN President, Okoh states position amid controversy.

News ToGo reports that the Archbishop Daniel Okoh, the new president of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), on Thursday, said several Christians have the genuine fear that there is a deliberate plan to remove the Christian faith from the scheme of things and make them second-class citizens in Nigeria.

Okoh said the fear was borne out of the recent happenings in the polity.

According to him, “that is, the same-faith ticket in one of the major political parties in Nigeria despite the caution raised by CAN since two years ago.”

In his acceptance speech in Abuja after the General Assembly of CAN validated his election, Okoh said: “We are coming in at the time that all of us in the Christian faith, believe that some section of political leaders are not sensitive to the diverse nature of our population when certain decisions are being made.

“Whatever happens, no matter how many times our sensibilities are insulted, we must resolve to make a positive impact on the political, economic and social systems of our dear nation.”

It would be recalled that against the outcry of Nigerians, the All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu picked Kashim Shettima, a Northern Muslim as his running mate.

We Will Agitate For Governor, 3 Senators If Supreme Court Agrees With PEPC- Abuja Senator

Senator Ireti Kingibe has given a condition for them to demand for a Governor and three senators.

News ToGo reports that the Senator representing the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), responded to the recent ruling by the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) regarding the mandatory requirement of a presidential candidate to secure 25 per cent of the votes in Abuja during an election.

The Labour Party (LP) and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, had submitted a petition to the PEPC, including the 25 per cent vote claim, against President Bola Tinubu following the 2023 general election.

Surprisingly, the PEPC ruled that the FCT did not have a special status in this regard.

In a press conference held in Abuja on Wednesday, Senator Kingibe, who was elected on the LP platform, shared her perspective on the PEPC’s dismissal of the 25 per cent vote petition.

She noted that the matter is currently before the Supreme Court, and the final verdict will determine the course of action. If the Supreme Court upholds the PEPC’s decision, then the residents of Abuja may need to advocate for the election of a governor and three senators, aligning with the status of other states.

Senator Kingibe stated, “After the matter has been disposed of at the Supreme Court and if the same position is maintained, then we will agitate for a governor, three senators, and other status of a state, but for now, let the matter remain as it is.”

Her statement implies that the issue of Abuja’s special status and the 25 per cent vote requirement will be decided in accordance with the outcome of the Supreme Court’s judgment.

BREAKING: LP's Candidate Cruises To Victory As Appeal Court Nullifies PDP's Win

LP’s candidate has cruised to victory as Appeal Court nullified PDP’s win.

News ToGo reports that the Court of Appeal in Abuja has overturned the verdict issued on July 24 by the National and State Houses of Assembly Election Tribunal in Asaba, which had declared Ndudi Elumelu of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the winner of the Aniocha/Oshimili Federal Constituency election in Delta State.

In two judgments delivered on Thursday, the Appeal Court declared Ngozi Okolie of the Labour Party (LP) as the legitimate victor of the February 25th election.

The Court of Appeal criticized the election petitions tribunal for nullifying Okolie’s election and subsequently dismissed Elumelu’s petition, which had led to the annulled judgment.

The Court of Appeal concurred with the argument presented by the Labour Party’s attorney, Mahmud Magaji (SAN), asserting that, contrary to the tribunal’s findings, Okolie had been validly nominated and sponsored by his party. Furthermore, it was established that Okolie had resigned from his position as a Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the Delta State Government in accordance with the constitutional requirements.
