Court Remands Ali Ndume in Prison Custody.

The Federal High Court, Abuja, on Monday, ordered Sen. Ali Ndume be remanded in Kuje Prison following Abdulrasheed Maina, former Chairman, defunct Pension Reformed Task Team (PRTT)’s refusal to appear for his trial. Justice Okon Abang gave the order when Ndume, who represents Borno South Senatorial District, failed to file a formal application to show cause why he should not forfeit the bail bond of N500 million deposed to,  on May 5th to stand as surety for Maina.   The EFCC’s Lawyer, Mohammed Abubakar, had, on Nov. 18, asked the court to make an order for the lawmaker to forfeit the bail bond since Maina, who he stood as surety for, had jumped bail.   Abubakar also asked the court to revoke Maina’s bail and issue a warrant of arrest on him.   Although the court granted the applications by the EFCC on Maina, it gave Ndume an opportunity to appear with his legal representation and adjourned until Nov. 23.

Abaribe Lied,PMB Media Aide Insists, names Igbo's in Buhari's Cabinet

The Buhari Media Organization has branded Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe a ‘liar’ for claiming that only one Igbo man works in Aso-rock during a live interview on Channels TV a few days ago. The group, in a statement made available to the press, described Abaribe’s comments as a ’tissue of lies’, adding that President Muhammadu Buhari has several aides of Igbo origin in his cabinet. The group stated that, “His further attempt to give the impression that President Muhammadu Buhari has not done anything for that region is quite laughable and ridiculous, given the realities on ground”. The press release, signed by the group’s Chairman Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary Cassidy Madueke, stressed that Senator Abaribe ended up making himself look silly by suggesting that the only personal aide of the President from the region is ‘only’ a photographer. “It beggars belief that an opposition Senator who has been in the corridors of powers since 1999 could knowingly seek to hoodwink Nigerians with a false n

Yesterday, some youths blinded by the lure of lucre and hired by the State Govt went to town with muds packed in both hands with the failed intention of smearing the Distinguished Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District , Senator Dr Ifeanyi Ubah  His offence according to them was why he didn't keep quiet like his  peers in the Governorship race . while the state Governor sinks the ship of state as he goes about meticulously amassing state resources and shipping them off to Texas in preparation for a life of sumptious retirement after his tenure  They kept questioning why out of all the Gubernatorial aspirants eyeing Agu Awka, it is only the Senator that shakes the table and exposes the Governor's shady dealings  Some even came offline to advise that the Distinguished Senator  should keep quiet as he needs to court the cooperation of the Governor before he can be allowed to succeed him. These set of people will rather have the Senator abdicate  his divine pact wit
