Oyo lawmaker, Odebunmi wins Surulere/Ogo Oluwa federal constituency 

A member of the House of Representatives representing Surulere/ Ogo Oluwa constituency, Hon. Segun Dokun Odebunmi has been elected for the third time in office.

Odebunmi was elected under the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), in the National Assembly election that took place in the constituency on Saturday.

The APC chieftain, who is the Chairman of House Committee on Information, National Orientation, was elected for the first term to represent the constituency in 2011.

He got to the National Assembly on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in 2011 and became the only PDP Reps member to win the federal constituency in the state in 2015.

Odebunmi later defected to the ruling APC before he secured the party’s ticket last year.

Odebunmi according to the result announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), polled 15,463 votes to defeat his closest rival Mr. Kamoru Alagbe of the Action Democratic Party, ADP who scored 12, 766.

Nigeria elections: PDP blows hot over Buba Galadima, wants Tinubu arrested 

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the arrest of Buba Galadima, by the Department of State Services (DSS).

Prince Uche Secondus, PDP National Chairman, in a statement Sunday night said the development was an act of intimidation.

He also demanded the arrest of APC national leader, Bola Tinubu, over bullion vans allegedly seen at his house.

He said: “What crime has he committed? Mr. Galadima is constitutionally guaranteed a right of freedom of speech and freedom after the speech.

“The nation is currently boiling with the deaths caused by thugs of the All Progressives Congress. Not one of these thugs has been arrested by the DSS. The nation was embarrassed by drone images of bullion vans laden with cash driving into the home of the National Leader of the APC and no action has been taken by the law enforcement authorities. Yet a patriot and pro-democracy activist is arrested.

“We cannot be hoodwinked by the puppeteering of the DSS by the APC. It is obviously no coincidence that the APC Presidential Campaign Council called for the arrest of Mr. Galadima at 12 noon today (Sunday the 24th of February, 2019) and the arrest was duly effected by the DSS an hour later.

“This arrest is only the latest in a pattern of anti democratic actions by the Muhammadu Buhari administration.

“Nigeria will not be cowed. We have voted for democracy and as a nation, we will not be taken back to Egypt by the discredited blame centred anti democratic forces who have turned a once thriving economy into the world headquarters for extreme poverty.

“I call for the immediate release of Mr. Buba Galadima by the Department of State Security, even as I remind the DSS and other security agencies, that their oath of allegiance was sworn to Nigeria and not to the All Progressive Congress or President Muhammadu Buhari.”

Officers of the Independent National Electoral electoral commission INEC and agents of political parties hurriedly fled INEC office in Ogbomoso following reports that armed hoodlums are planning to invade the collation center.

Ogbomoso North , one of the five local government areas in Ogbomoso zone, has 10 wards and 183 polling units , the largest in the zone.

The tensed atmosphere which later forced others outside the INEC office to seek for protection elsewhere , halted the collation exercise.

Also , top officials of the independent National Electoral Commission ordered that collation process should be stopped immediately .

The Returning Officer, Professor Rasheed Okunola and other collation officers were forced to leave the INEC office at Ogbomoso North Local Government.

Okunola was reconciling the results of the 10 wards in the local government when the report of security threat was received.

Officials of INEC accompanied by security agents on receiving reports that the people of Ogbomoso was set to cause violence, moved all the results to the town hall, at the palace of Soun in Ogbomoso popularly known as Ojude Oba.

A senior police officer earlier arrived at the INEC office in the Nigeria Police van to inquire from the presiding officer, the situation of things.

Okunola had told the senior police officer that he was rounding off, and announcement would be made shortly.

The results will be announced at the town hall, which has now been heavily guarded by soldiers.

Meanwhile Alhaji Bukola Badmis, Chairman Ogbomoso North APC was attacked by hoodlums suspected to be working for an opposition party.

A man, who was stoned multiple times in Lagos on Saturday for alleged ballot box snatching is still alive, according to a viral video on social media.

The man, identified as Demola in an earlier video, was stoned for allegedly stealing ballot box.

A voice in the earlier video said he is a member of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC).

The incident was said to have taken place in Okota area of Lagos State.

Many Nigerians had speculated that the man died, seeing how he slumped after a heavy stone was aimed at his head.

However, a video that has now appeared on social media shows the said Demola still alive and receiving treatment in the hospital.

The violence prompted the electoral office to cancel several polling units affected. Due to the large concentration of Nigerians from the southern part of the country in the area, allegations were rife on social media that the disruption allegedly led by Demola was sanctioned by political actors to disenfranchise a particular stock in Nigeria’s largest urban centre.

The insinuations were met with a strong rebuttal by some social media commentators, who warned against ascribing ethnic colouration to a crime that should be heavily condemned by all.

It is illegal to disrupt voting, especially when targeted in the manner seen in pockets of neighbourhoods in Lagos on Saturday, and such offences attract up to two years in prison.

At the time of this report, it was not clear whether the Police had located Demola’s hospital to question him on the incident and track down his attackers.

JUST IN: Collated Results Show I Will Win, Says Atiku


The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has said results collated so far shows he is winning the presidential election.

Atiku stated this on Sunday morning in a statement signed by his campaign spokesperson, Phrank Shaibu.

“With strong shares of vote in SS, SE as well as an increased share in SW and NC we are very pleased with the progress the PDP has made. We look forward to sharing some exciting news in other parts of the country very soon, which will confound all the armchair pundits,” Mr Shaibu said.

Presidential candidate of the People Democratic Party and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar thanked Nigerians for turning out to vote for him in their millions and confirmed that the initial indications from the PDPs Simultaneous Vote Count show a PDP victory is assured.

The statement added, “I would like to sincerely thank the millions of people who, despite having to bear the additional burden of a postponed election, came out yesterday to vote for me and the other PDP candidates standing in this election.”

The statement said with the PDP’s high tech, cloud-based SVC system – which is able to collate in real-time the results from the 176,000 voting points across the nation – the Presidential candidate could boldly assure his supporters that victory was at hand.

“With strong shares of vote in SS, SE as well as an increased share in SW and NC we are very pleased with the progress the PDP has made. We look forward to sharing some exciting news in other parts of the country very soon, which will confound all the armchair pundits.

The people of Nigeria can take solace that very soon the living Nightmare of the last four years will come to an end so that together we will get Nigeria working again.”

The PDP Presidential candidate urged Nigerians on the need to maximise their eternal vigilance in the next 48 hours to prevent the majority votes recorded at the polling units being disrupted by force by the APC at the collation centres.

“I am familiar with how brazen and the complete lack of shame the APC can exhibit, but even I was shocked to witness just how low they went last night by accusing the PDP of ‘recruiting armed thugs’ to do just that. Why would we want to do that when we are winning?”

“Furthermore I would like to say how proud I was of PDP supporters who conducted themselves so peacefully despite the significant provocations and threats of violence, removal and burning of ballot boxes and the likes.”

The statement also thanked the security forces and election officials who in the main conducted their duties with exemplary professionalism but tasked General Buhari on his promise of a free and fair election.

“General Buhari you have promised our people and the world that you would conduct ‘free, fair and credible elections’ so please call off the wilder elements within your party and deliver on your promise.”

I will curse anyone forcing me to help Baba Suwe — Liz Anjorin

Liz Anjorin

Popular Yoruba actress, Liz Anjorin has unleashed her fury on those sliding into her comment section on Instagram to force her to help ailing actor and comedian, Baba Suwe. The actress invoked Olorun Ogun (god of iron) to kill anyone forcing her and making it compulsory that she must help.

After the news broke that many of Baba Suwe’s colleagues have abandoned him, his fans have been a little off the edge and some of them have been attacking actors who they felt have not come to the aid of their super star. When one of such people attacked the actress she reacted with venom.
“You came to my page to be insulting and cursing me because of industry issue? My mother deserved my kindness but the hate in the industry and others sent her to early grave. They did not allow her to eat the fruit of her labour.
My mother battled stroke for good four years; I was in the court with a thief that stole my car all alone at this same time. What did my colleagues do to help me? They helped to spread bad rumours. If you come to my page to drop any hate speech, I pray this same thing happen to you and you will never come out of it. How many of them (colleagues) featured me in their movies or adopted me despite my generosity.
When my beloved mother died none of the artistes came except Lepa Shandy and Madam Asewo Toremecca. The headline written by a journalist “Colleagues Shun Liz Anjorin Mother’s Burial” still lingers in my brain. “Remember I can laugh with you but I will never betray my mother to mingle with some of you. If you come to my page to tell me who to assist Ogun (god of iron) will kill you and you die just like my mother,” she wrote in reaction to her fan’s query.
Unknown to many and according to Yomi Fabiyi, Liz Anjorin was one of the first people to react to Baba Suwe’s call for help. She explained in a post on her Instagram later.
“I don’t want to do this but it is right to shed light. The very 1st day I heard, I told Arike immediately to send the little coins I have in my account, she hit the ATM that night. You all know I just came back from market and of course many bills are waiting for me. I called Yomi the following morning to monitor it till he gets my alert. Behold, before I check my Instagram page it was flooded with different curses and evil speech. As I am blocking and deleting, they kept coming to my DM, My comment section,” she said.

An INEC official, Mrs. Mary Efeturi has accused Minister Of Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi of using the Military to hold her hostage.

“Sir, I am still held within my office and the Minister of Transportation is insisting that I instruct the collation officers to collate results. He said that I cannot leave the office because he has military personnel on ground.”

Nigerian model, Olajumoke Orisaguna has said she has left her baby daddy to God after he called her out over infidelity.

Olajumoke in an interview with Punchng.com denied all the allegations made by her baby daddy against her.

“Anybody can say whatever pleases them with their mouth. He is the one that has been spreading such stories. When a man knows everything about you, he can choose to do whatever with that information. As for me, I am okay and there is nothing wrong with me.”

“Whatever is going on is known to God. We are still together. He has never discussed all what he has been saying outside with me, so I don’t understand what he is driving at because we sleep in the same house.

“Well, he can continue saying whatever pleases him but I will not say anything bad about him. There is nobody I will discuss his matter with; I just leave him to God. God will judge between us.”

Accept defeat, handover to Atiku now – PDP tells Buhari


The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has charged President Muhammadu Buhari accept defeat and prepare to handover power.

The PDP said Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC, must stop whining over their “rejection” in the presidential election.

The PDP also accused the ruling party and agents of the Buhari Presidency of plotting to discredit the votes.

This was contained in a statement last night by the spokesman for the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan.

The party said part of alleged plot was to trigger mayhem and burn down Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) offices in order to destroy all evidence of poll results.

The statement said, “The PDP reminds President Buhari and the APC that the polling unit is the foundation of the election and all our agents and supporters already have the results in all the polling centers and voting points across the country.

“As such, our party is holding strongly to our results as already delivered by the people at the polling units and such cannot be altered.

“The PDP, therefore, counsels President Buhari and his APC to respect the will of the people and accept the verdict of the election. It is not for President Buhari to direct his campaign spokesperson to tell Nigerians that no party should rejoice.

“For us in the PDP, we already have the figures and we are aware that Nigerians in their resolve and consensus have settled their votes in favour of the people’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar, as the next President of our country.

“President Buhari should be prepared to take his defeat in good faith. After all, he will not be the first sitting President to lose in an election”.

Nigeria decides 2019: Atiku speaks on election results, winning presidential poll

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, on Sunday expressed optimism of winning the presidential election.

The presidential election, which was conducted on Saturday is still being collated by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

Abubakar is the closest rival to President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the race for the presidential seat.

In a statement by his campaign spokesperson, Phrank Shaibu, Abubakar urged Nigerians on the need to maximise their eternal vigilance in the next 48 hours to prevent the majority votes recorded at the polling units being disrupted by force by the APC at the collation centres.

The statement reads: “I would like to sincerely thank the millions of people who, despite having to bear the additional burden of a postponed election, came out yesterday to vote for me and the other PDP candidates standing in this election.

CDD reports vote buying, violence in Presidential, NASS polls


Giving a preliminary report on the Presidential and National Assembly elections, the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) has said it observed widespread logistics challenge, vote buying and violence.

A member of the CDD’s Election Analysis Centre (EAC), Dr. Plangsat Dayit, disclosed this in Abuja while presenting the report by the centre.

According to her, INEC’s preparedness for the elections despite additional week they took to tie up loose ends logistically and operationally is questionable.

“Reports reaching us are that logistical issues are still widespread. Ballot papers are not sufficient in some polling units, while in others, there is lack of other materials such as the indelible ink, ballots or result sheets,” Dayit said.

While noting that though the Smart Card Readers (SCRs) remained one of the most vital aspects of the elections in Nigeria, their observers report that many of the issues bedeviling the SCRs from previous elections have persisted in some of the locations visited by our observers.

She said, “There are quite a lot of reports that the SCRs are failing to authenticate a significant number of voters who have presented themselves for voting.

“It is yet unclear whether their PVCs were authenticated first before their biometrics failed to be recognised. What is certain as at this moment is that in a few places, Supervising Officers have directed that manual voting should be allowed.

It was stated that in Birnin Kudu Local Government Area (LGA), Bamaina Ward, Voting Point 009, the card reader did not function until midday, apart from PU 014 of Dakata Ward in Nassarawa LGA of Kano Central, where voting did not commence as at noon because the card reader did not work at all.

Dayit, who noted that the poll also recorded pockets of violence, said there were many areas where vote buying was observed.

She said, “Two persons were killed with three others injured in Amagu Ward one in Ikwo Local Government Area of the Ebonyi. The death occurred following a clash between supporters of two political parties in the state.

“In Rivers State, five people have so far been killed, with four killed in Andoni Local Government Area and another one in Akuku Toru local government area of Rivers state.

“Our observers reported killings also in Dekina, Kogi, Sapele Oba. Two people were allegedly killed. As we are filing this report, our observers are reporting ongoing thug invasion in Oru West LGA in Imo state.”
