3893j3n5879050522788058228 The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu and that of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, on Monday, met at the airport lounge in Abuja.
The duo are seeking to become Nigeria's next president come May 2023.
In a developing news, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has asked his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) counterpart Atiku Abubakar to step down and endorse him (Tinubu) ahead of February 2023 presidential poll. <p>
Tinubu asked Atiku to reciprocate the “gesture” he gave to him when he contested for the presidency in 2007 under the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) by dropping his ambition and endorsing him.
<p>
Tinubu spoke on Monday when he met with leaders from the northern part of the country under the umbrella of the Arewa Joint Committee for an interactive session.
<p>
The meeting was part of a wider interaction with selected presidential candidates to discuss their plans for the region ahead of the 2023 general elections.
<p>
Tinubu’s appearance came two days after his rival in the PDP engaged in a similar interaction with the northern leaders. The interactive session held at the Arewa House in Kaduna was organised by a coalition of six groups from the North including the Arewa Consultative Forum, Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Foundation, Northern Elders Forum, and Jamar Matan Arewa among others.

COURT DECLARES GBENGA SHITTU AS NEW PDP CANDIDATE ®™√ INN Nigeria ©

3013df36 1767 4fb5 8f57 0fb02996d9c57236936743544918190 <p>
The Federal High Court, Lagos has held that Abdul Kareem Shittu is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Ikorodu Federal House of Representatives.
<p>
Justice Daniel Osiagor held on Friday that Shittu won the party’s Lagos State House of Representative’s primary conducted on May 24, 2022, by a simple majority. The judge ordered the PDP to submit Shittu’s name to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the validly nominated candidate for the Ikorodu Federal Constituency. <p>
Justice Osiagor made the order while delivering judgment in Shittu’s suit challenging the PDP’s purported submission of the name of the third defendant in the suit, Awesu AbdulAzeez to INEC as its candidate for the constituency.
<p>
The PDP and INEC are the first and second defendants.
<p>
Delivering judgment on the third defendant’s preliminary objection on the ground that the matter is statute-barred, Justice Osiagor held that the plaintiff did not violate Section 285 of the Electoral Act, which prescribed a 14-day window for pre-election matters. He held that what Shittu complained of was not the result of the election but the purported submission of the name of the third defendant to INEC on the 17th of June, which he became aware of on the 18th of June, adding that the plaintiff’s suit takes care of that window limitation. <p>
On the third defendant’s objection that the plaintiff did not seek the resolution of the dispute through the internal mechanism of the party as stipulated in the party’s constitution, Justice Osiagor held that the party’s rule is subservient to the Electoral Act.
<p>
He added that the provisions in the party’s rules which provide for an internal mechanism in dispute resolution cannot rob the Federal High Court of jurisdiction that was freely given under the Electoral Act.
<p>
The judge further held that there was no cogent reason given for the repeat election of June 6, nor the cancellation of that primary election of May 24 as the INEC form was signed by officials of the party responsible for it.

The Federal High Court, Lagos has held that Abdul Kareem Shittu is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Ikorodu Federal House of Representatives. Justice Daniel Osiagor held on Friday that Shittu won the party’s Lagos State House of Representative’s

FUMES & CRACKS IN LAGOS STATE PDP AS ASPIRANTS LAMENT OVER LEADERSHIP STRUCTURE ®™√ INN Nigeria ©

r84h4n47983751467998823000. As it struts, impediment has been rested on the leadership of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos state amidst grievances ensuing from prospective nominees strew around the myriad local government of the State.
Unveiling a faulty indicator, all fingers are pointing towards the supervision technique of Dr Olajide Adediran, the Lagos State PDP gubernatorial candidate popularly known as JANDOR, prompting some hopefuls to inquire if the Lagos state PDP harbours any State Executives.
According to sources, the claims have resulted in a massive influx of Lagos PDP aspirants to the PDP Headquarters at Wadata plaza such that it has led to questioning the party's structure in Lagos.
From house of representatives to house of assembly aspirants, it has been gathered that numerous calibres of persons from Lagos PDP have touched down Wadata which can only indicate a fracture at the Lagos state secretariat of the party.
Uche Monye, Oshodi Isolo federal constituency 1 aspirant has tagged the just concluded PDP primaries as selection instead of an election.
According to Monye, the primaries aren't only a selfish act, it is also not in the interest of Peace, Fairness, Equality and Justice in PDP.
He continued, "This infringes on the rights of Aspirants who asides contributed their best to the progress of our party, but also paid the statutory Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms not mentioning other expenses incurred.
"I wish to clearly state that if the party chooses to stick to the selection of candidates by a selfish few rather than an election which is constitutional, then it becomes expedient for the fees paid by these Aspirants as well as the expenses incurred during the process of the purported primaries to be refunded to the Aspirants with immediate effect".
"This should be the first step in reconciling all aggrieved Aspirants and their followers back to our party" Monye surmised
Another prospect, Wole Adewunmi also argued about an alleged expunging and substitution of one Are Azeez Ajibola's name as the House of Representatives candidate for Apapa Federal Constituency, the official candidates list released by INEC, substantiating the omission of Are Azeez Ajibola's name for Jandor's anointed candidate, Salua Olasunkanmi Hakeem.
Adewunmi, who pointed fingers at Jandor as the perpetrator of the travesty explained that Chief Olabode George is in no way responsible for the act of gross misconduct, asserting that Jandor must avoid peddling his name as the brain behind this substitution.
He continued, "As forewarned, this travesty was orchestrated and masterminded by Jandor and his cohorts at the Office of the National Organising Secretary of the party. Information at our disposal has it that JANDOR utilized the instrumentality of his connections at the National Secretariat to carry out this coup d'etat against the people's mandate".
"Jandor's audacious and atrocious moves have destabilized the party that many toiled to build in Lagos State. His constant feigning of ignorance does not in any way exonerate him from involvement in the upheavals currently being witnessed at all levels of the party in Lagos state. Not everyone can be fooled at the same time. It is no coincidence that the issues pervading Lagos are identical".
"The party leaders, members of LGA and Ward Executive Committee of PDP in Apapa LGA are resolute in their quest to restore the mandate of ARE AZEEZ AJIBOLA as the party's House of Representatives candidate for Apapa Federal Constituency and will resist every plan to subvert the will of the people".
"For the avoidance of doubt, we want to make it known that we will explore all legal means possible to ensure that the mandate of Are Azeez Ajibola is reinstated. On a final note, we call on the relevant organs of our great party to do the needful. Inaction on the part of the party will be seen as consent to this impunity and will come with accompanying consequences" Wole Adewunmi added
Furthermore, another Hon. Sunday Olawale Shobulo, PDP Agege constituency 1 Aspirant, Lagos State House of Assembly 2023, in an open letter to JANDOR, urged the gubernatorial candidate not to impose his D.G Seyi Bankole aka Banki on Agege constituency 1.
He continued, "I am saddened to hear that you have altered the party operations and also hijacked what could have been a credible process at the recently concluded primary election of the party".
"You must remember that some of us have sacrificed for the party at different levels even before you arrive at the party, hence you must respect the process and allow due process to take its course".
"This is me calling on you to tread softly and not allow the party to be divided into factions as a result of your interests. The idea of planting candidates of your choice in different constituencies across the state must be put to stop".
"I advise you to retrace your steps and do what is right in the best interest of the party as we prepare towards a successful 2023" Hon. Shobulo asserted With objections appearing from all niches, only time will demonstrate when the ongoing party upheaval hit its waterloo as the 2023 race pulls nigher.

As it struts, impediment has been rested on the leadership of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos state amidst grievances ensuing from prospective nominees strew around the myriad local government of the State. Unveiling a faulty indicator, all fingers are pointing
