Well, the actress has now reacted to the reports: “I am Not About to Get Married to Any Fellow Actor” – Toyin Abraham “It has come to my attention reports from some quarters saying that I am about to get married to a fellow actor.

I have been busy with my work as an actor, working tirelessly on my TV, my lip stick launch and other businesses.
The only relationship I have with any man in the industry is purely professional and it is high time we stop insinuating and spreading false rumours when we see two colleagues of opposite sex working together. That is what the job entails and I expect that people should be smarter than this.

If and when I am ready to walk down the aisle, you will not be hearing it from the rumour mongers, gossip magazine that are no longer in the city and people hell-bent on cooking up imaginative stories about me. You will be hearing it from me directly.

APC Spokespersons Fight Over Oshiomhole On WhatsApp

The crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reportedly found its way to private messaging platform WhatsApp.

APC national chairman Adams Oshiomhole, who has been accused of receiving $55 million in bribes to rig the party’s primary elections, is at the middle of the crisis that greeted and trails the primaries.

The allegations, reports say, came from the Department of State Services (DSS) which has reportedly asked President Muhammadu Buhari and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to probe the APC chairman. The secret police had also detained and questioned Oshiomhole over the allegations.

But Oshiomhole’s spokesperson Simon Ebegbulem, on Thursday, released a statement urging APC and opposition figures to leave the party chairman alone.

“The primary elections of the APC, which were at the root of these malicious attacks, have come and gone, but it is understandable that those who lost out in the transparent exercise conducted by the party under the leadership of Comrade Oshiomhole, have been exercising their rights to protest,” Ebegbulem’s statement read in part.

“Enough is enough. We urge our respected media outfits to exercise caution not to be used by unscrupulous elements.

“Except such persons or media house can provide evidence,” the statement read.

Ebegbulem posted the statement on a WhatsApp platform to which APC deputy national publicity secretary Yekini Nabena also belongs.

“Simon, please stop all this media propaganda and face the reality on ground,” Nabena, according to Premium Times, replies Ebegbulem.

“The damages (are) affecting the party,” Nabena said.

Meanwhile, Oshiomhole has threatened to sue anyone who accuses him of corruption regarding the conduct of the APC primaries.

Oshiomhole, ex-APC Chieftain Trade Words Over Alleged $50m Bribe

A former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Timi Frank, has accused the National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, of  collecting over $50m from different aspirants during the last primaries of the party.

Frank alleged that a large percentage of the money was paid to Oshiomhole through proxies from Imo, Zamfara, Adamawa and Ogun states.

In a statement  on Thursday,  Frank  threatened to publish the names and the amount of money  paid by aspirants to allegedly bribe the  former Edo State governor  to clear them and substitute the names of duly elected candidates with those that failed.

But dismissing the allegations as “unfounded”, Oshiomhole labelled Frank “a political jobber”.

Speaking through his Chief Press Secretary, Simon Ebegbulem, he challenged Frank to publish the names of the alleged bribe givers or face legal action.

Ebegbulem said, “He is a political jobber looking for cheap popularity. How on earth would people of questionable character like Frank be questioning the integrity of the National Chairman? I challenge him to publish the names of those that gave the alleged bribes or we won’t hesitate to institute  legal action against him.”

Frank alleged that the DSS had  presented its report and findings against Oshiomhole to President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said, “I dare say that this singular act of refusing to order the prosecution of Oshiomhole over sundry acts of bribery and corruption he committed as contained in the DSS report,  President Buhari has shown that his APC administration is a stinking house of corruption.”

Frank, however, called on the President to act on the recommendations of the DSS by ordering Oshiomhole’s sacking  and prosecution, if his government was actually fighting corruption or opposition.

He said, “We are in the know that President Buhari has received the DSS report on Adams Oshiomhole and Nigerians are patiently waiting for the action or inaction of his government,  because this is an administration that has claimed fighting corruption as an achievement.

“In the history of party administration in Nigeria, no party chairman has been accused of collecting the jaw-breaking amount of money allegedly collected within a short period in office like Comrade Oshiomhole has allegedly done.

“Instead of Oshiomhole to clear his name, he has taken to a diversionary path,  asking the Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki,  to resign. Nigerians are not gullible. We shall wait to see how the acclaimed anti-corruption regime will act on this particular issue.

“This same Oshiomhole has been attacking the Senate President, calling on him to resign on moral grounds. Can Oshiomhole now step aside while investigation into his financial malfeasance is on going to justify his much talked about morality.”

Expressing surprise at Mr Oshiomhole’s latest ordeal, he said the former labour leader will go down in history as a party chairman who allegedly received such “humongous bribe within a short period of time in office”.

Jubilation In Aso Rock, As Buhari Delivers The Most Brilliant Message To Nigerians, Ahead Of 2019 Election Campaigns

Just days before the commencement of campaigns for 2019 general elections, President Mohammadu Buhari on Thursday, launched “Buhari Unity Band” BUB, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

 

The President also used the opportunity to reiterated his committed to peace and unity across the country.

 

 

He said the BUB was part of the activities to kick-start his campaigns towards seeking reelection for a second term in office.

 

Speaking at the launch of campaign wrist bands organised by a group known as the Good Governance Ambassadors of Nigeria, GOGAN, the President expressed unhappiness with the prevailing threats in Nigeria ahead of the elections in February.

 

Buhari, however, said that the country would emerge stronger despite the odds besetting it with the resolve by the citizens for a united nation.

 

 

He said, “No nation can succeed without unity. Our nation has gone through turbulent times but by the grace of God we always emerge stronger.”

 

The President said his administration was doing all it takes to promote togetherness as well as cement cordial relationship among Nigerians.

 

In the launch booklet, National Coordinator of GOGAN, Felix Idiga said BUB is to humiliate and shut down evil plans of the opposition and every dissenting voice.

 

“It is a symbol with a loud declaration by Nigerians; a slogan which says, no to united looters, yes to a united Nigeria,” he said.

 

According to him ‘senseless looting’ of the national treasury, unites desperate politicians regardless of their different ethnic and religious groups.

 

 

“But when they are picked to face the wrath of the law, they cry marginalisation and begin to fan the flames of disunity and unrest in the country,” he noted.

 

Idiga added that BUB’s launch of the wrist band was to give all Nigerians who support the President and Nigeria’s unity, something to show for their solidarity and which they can wear with pride.

 

“Our ultimate goal is to make all Nigerians peace ambassadors of our country by uniting them with the national outlook for excellence in visual identification symbol,” he added.

PDP Exposes Shocking Details Of How APC, INEC Planned To Rig 2019 Elections

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus has accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of planning to rig the 2019 elections in favour of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to Vanguard, Secondus said the electoral body has prepared special card readers and result sheets for APC.

The PDP chairman said this while speaking with the election team of the Economic Community of West Africa states (ECOWAS).

Warns INEC boss

Secondus also warned the chairman of INEC, Professor Mahmood Yakubu against the manipulation of the 2019 elections.

The PDP chairman said that it will be a ‘recipe for crisis’, and Yakubu will be held responsible.

Secondus also said that history will be unkind to the INEC boss if he fails to conduct free and fair elections in 2019.

He also said “They have finished their rigging arrangements with preloaded cards and special election result sheets all doctored to Favour the ruling APC.

“The INEC chairman has no strong will to follow our electoral laws and constitution as well as the laid down international standards in his processes towards 2019 and we want to let the World know this before it happens.

“They have finished plots to isolate states of Kano, Benue, Rivers, Buachi, Akwa Ibom, Delta, Imo and Kwara and Lagos for disruption during the general election so they can plan well to mobilize the rigging.”

The PDP also accused APC of planning to block bank accounts belonging to its members so as to frustrate the flow of funds during campaigns for the upcoming general elections.

Bukola Saraki Launches Harsh Attacks On Oshiomole, Shows The Embattled APC Chairman Exit Door

Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki on Wednesday hit out at the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, saying that he had lost moral right to remain in politics.

Speaking with journalists in Ilorin during the sixth remembrance prayer for his father, Saraki said Oshiomhole had ‘no locus standi to talk about morality in today’s Nigeria’s politics.

“That must be a joke coming from Oshiomhole talking about moral ground. I think Oshiomhole has no locus standi to talk about morality today. Oshiomhole is somebody who has been told to have been collecting not even naira but dollars from candidates and he is being accused by his party’s aspirants and governors. I don’t think he has any moral ground, even to continue to be in politics, not to talk about being a chairman of a party.

“I remember in those days, even Oyegun, they never accused him of something like this. I have left that party. I’m sure the President, based on integrity, knows the right thing to do. So, on moral ground, he cannot speak.”

The Chief Press Secretary to Oshiomhole, Mr. Simon Ebegbulem, could not be reached for comments.

He neither picked the calls placed on his telephone nor responded to a text message from one of our correspondents.

Violence Erupts Ahead Kwara By-Election, Gunmen Attack APC Candidate

The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for the Irepodun/Ekiti/Oke-Ero and Isin federal constituency for the November 17 by-lection, Raheem Olawuyi, was on Thursday allegedly attack by unknown gunmen.

Femi David, the campaign spokesman told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that Olawuyi was attacked at Idofin Igbana area during a campaign tour of Oke-Ero Local Government.

The campaign team was said to have been led by some members of the APC state executives and party stalwarts.

The assailants were said to have laid siege at the entrance of the town along the busy road before shooting at their target at close range.

NAN reports that the back screen of Olawuyi’s Lexus Jeep was shattered following the impact of the attack.

Olawuyi, the driver and two other stalwarts of the party, were said to have escaped unhurt in the Jeep.

The supporters of the party described the act as barbaric and cruel, noting that the perpetrators must face the full wrath of the law when apprehended.

NAN reports that the community vigilante immediately swung into action by mobilising and combing the surrounding bush to locate the perpetrators.

Olawuyi, while addressing his supporters at Idofin Igbana afterward, urged them to remain calm and steadfast.

He said that the act was one of the prizes for freedom and that they should remain undaunted and undeterred.

Chief Michael Olaoye, the Abadofin of Idofin Igbana led the team to the palace of Oni dofin of Igbana, Oba Samuel Ifabiyi to intimate him of the incident.

Olaoye said that the community would not rest until the perpetrators were apprehended.

According to him, this is the first time such act was happening in the town during election campaigns.

In his reaction, Oba Ifabiyi expressed shock and dismay over the heinous crime, stressing that the perpetrator would be exposed in due course.

He advised the candidate not to allow the incidence to dampen his morale, while urging him to remain focused on his ambition.

Effort by David to alert the Area commander and the Divisional Police Officer, Omu-Aran Police Command, on the incident on phone was said to have proved abortive.

David told NAN that the matter as well as the affected vehicle had been lodged at the Area command.

The Force Public Relation Officer of the Kwara Command, Ajayi Okasami, told NAN that they are awaiting official report about the incidence from Omu Aran.

Olawuyi and the PDP candidate for the election, Mr Jimoh Alatise are from Omu-Aran.

‘Atiku Has Lost Any Sense Of Shame,’ APC Rubbishes PDP Presidential Candidate After Gaining Igbo Endorsement

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described Atiku Abubakar’s meeting with Igbo leaders from the southeast region as proof that he has ‘lost any sense of shame’ alongside his party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Atiku, a former vice president, met with Igbo leaders in Enugu State on Wednesday, November 14, as part of his campaign as the PDP’s presidential candidate for the 2019 presidential election.

During the meeting, Atiku expressed his displeasure with the state of infrastructure in the southeast region and promised that restructuring would solve many of the regions complaints about marginalisation.

“My commitment is to fix this country. I think of the future this country will have, if I do not struggle to fix it,” he said.

Before the meeting took place, elders, traditional and religious leaders of the region had engaged in a nonpartisan meeting tagged ‘Ndigbo 2019 and Beyond Summit’ and announced an endorsement of Atiku’s candidacy whose running mate is former Anambra State governor, Peter Obi, who’s from the region.

According to a communiqué read by a lawyer, Olisa Agbakoba, the summit concluded that an Atiku/Obi ticket puts “Ndigbo back in the center of governance”.

“We identify with the Atiku/Peter Obi ticket on the restructuring agenda as has been reiterated by four zones of the country namely: South South, South West, North Central and South East.

“We believe that as long as the federating units remain weak the center will continue to be weak. We equally move to appreciate the position of the Atiku/Obi ticket in promoting national unity.

“In conclusion, the Summit reiterated that the time is now for Ndigbo to mobilize and organize effectively to realize the Atiku/Obi ticket.

“We are not campaigning against anybody, we are simply campaigning for our very survival. Igbo votes must count wherever Ndigbo live in Nigeria,” the communiqué read.

The APC has not taken too kindly to the meeting and endorsement of the former vice president’s candidacy due to PDP’s perceived failure in the region during its 16 years reign in the center.

According to a statement signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, on Thursday, November 15, the endorsement is an affront on the people of the region.

He said the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has done more for the region in three and a half years and will get the support of “very discerning Igbo people” at the polls next year.

The statement read, “Our response to the purported endorsement of Atiku by some Igbo leaders. APC considers Atiku and his PDP co-travellers as people who have lost any sense of shame.

“The purported endorsement of Atiku and PDP by some leaders of the South East for the 2019 general elections is an affront on the the Igbo people who were frontline victims of the 16 years of the PDP misrule.

“It will be interesting to know what the PDP will be telling the Igbo people during the campaign. The South East people have three and half years of visible progress in terms of massive infrastructure and the thousands of common people who are benefiting from the social programme investments under APC to compare to the PDP’s 16 years of retrogression.

“We in APC are confident that the Igbo won’t be fooled by any group, by whatever name, to sell a thoroughly discredited party like the PDP to the very discerning Igbo people.”

2019 presidential election

While next year’s election, scheduled for February 16, 2019, is expected to be keenly-contested between President Buhari and Atiku, they both face competition from other candidates including Donald Duke of the Social Democratic Party (SDP)Kingsley Moghalu of the Young Progressive Party (YPP)Obiageli Ezekwesili of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN)Fela Durotoye of the Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN), and Omoyele Sowore of the African Action Congress (AAC).

Others are Tope Fasua of the Abundance Nigeria Renewal Party (ANRP)Eunice Atuejide of the National Interest Party (NIP)Olusegun Mimiko of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP)Adesina Fagbenro-Byron of the Kowa Party (KP)Chike Ukaegbu of the Advanced Allied Party (AAP)Hamza Al-Mustapha of the People’s Party of Nigeria (PPN)Obadiah Mailafiaof the African Democratic Congress (ADC), and many more.

79 candidates will contest in the election, the highest number ever in Nigeria’s electoral history.
