2019: PDP won’t be push over, Gov Bello tells Buhari

GOVERNOR Yahaya Bello of Kogi state, Wednesday night told President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to get ready for aggressive marketing of the President and the party, declaring that the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, would not be a push over in the 2019 general elections. Governor Bello who stated this when President Buhari hosted a dinner for youth political appointees at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, warned the APC against complacency, saying that opposition should not be taken for granted if the APC should win the election. But the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Boss Mustapha has said that the PDP in its 16 years did not do one tenth of what the APC has done in the past three and half years, adding that the ruling party went to the 2015 election with promises but will be going with its score card in the 2019 elections.

Bolt dismissed as footballer; his touch like trampoline

Former Ireland striker Andy Keogh has dismissed Usain Bolt’s ambition to be a footballer and derided his touch, saying it’s like that of a trampoline. His verdict came Friday as the coach of the Central Coast Mariners refused to say whether he believes the sprint star can make it as a footballer. Keogh, who plays for Perth Glory, said it would be a “kick in the teeth” to footballers if the eight-time Olympic champion earns a professional contract with Australia’s Mariners. The 32-year-old Jamaican, who retired from athletics last year, has been on trial with the A-League club since August but contract negotiations have stalled and he is no longer training. Sydney’s Daily Telegraph reported this week that Bolt’s representatives were initially seeking Aus$3 million (US$2.1 million) but the Mariners have offered closer to Aus$150,000. The Mariners have said it appears unlikely the Jamaican will sign unless a third-party agreement can be found to deliver him more mo

Atiku declares N20m yearly income

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, believed to be a multi-billionaire has declared a paltry yearly personal income of N20 million. The shocking revelation was contained in the credentials that Atiku filed with the the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). The PDP candidate, who prides himself as a businessman and job creator said he earned only N60.2 million in three years and paid a paltry N10.8 million tax between 2015 and 2017. Some reports have estimated Atiku’s wealth at about $1.4 billion. In 2014, Atiku boasted that he was the greatest employer of labour in Nigeria, with about 50,000 Nigerians on his payroll. “As an individual, I believe my record in employing young Nigerians is unrivalled by any single private investor in Nigeria,” the former vice president said. He has investments in media, shipping, education, and other sectors.  One of the companies, where he has substantial interest is Intels, which recently ran into
