What Is Ifeanyi Ubah's Interest in Rallying The Southeast Caucus Of The 10th Assembly

Since the demand by the Senators-elect from the southeast became a subject of national discourse a few days ago, divergent views have emerged as to the real intentions behind the call for equity and inclusiveness for the southeast zone by the group.  While one group went to town with the story that this move is about the ambition of the Chief Whip of the 9th Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, to become the Senate President in the 10th Senate. This is notwithstanding the fact that another aspirant for the same Senate presidency seat, Senator Osita Izunaso, was also an active participant in all the meetings held by the group. Another group resorted to spreading the ridiculous rumour that the Southeast Caucus were trying to exchange the presidency of the Federal Republic for the Senate Presidency. To the latter group, all they need is the presidency through Mr Peter Obi's tribunal case or nothing.  Before President Jonathan's ascent to Asorock, the country used to stand on the tripod

The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC (EEDC) has resumed full operations in Imo State following the suspension of the week-long industrial action embarked upon by organised labour, comprising the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC).

The South East Senate Caucus, at the end of the meeting that lasted several hours, came up with the following resolutions. • They observed with dismay the antics of persons with vested selfish interests who having planted themselves around the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu vowed to shut out the South East from the Senate Presidency of the 10th Senate, which to them is unfortunate.  • They stressed that beyond ethnic and religious considerations, in the forthcoming 10th Senate, the Southeast is blessed with ranking Senat

Court set to determine the authentic, legitimate governorship candidate of Imo State Labour Party.

By Kelechi Abonuyo The general elections in Nigeria were such that would bring enormous hope to Nigerians. Many non-Nigerians believed that everything was turning around for good, which is why the obidient movement (a derivative of obi in Peter Obi) was anchored in many countries of the world. Obidience became a gratifying important hashtag, which was synonymous to prosperity, safety and happiness. Mr Peter Obi, of the Labour Party, is the standard bearer of this Nigerians’ new hope, which was held out to them by divine providence. Mr Obi represents everything that would make a pariah and rundown nation great again. Even his political opponents, some of whom are rogues, used his name to succeed. Yet, those who benefit from the present horrible Nigeria system would never allow a new lease of life for Nigerians. And so they devised some dubious means and resisted the progressive change at the polls. The story of what happened before, during and after the general elections of Saturday, Fe

Constitution, Not Tinubu ‘ll Decide Next Senate President – Yari

  Zamfara West Senator-elect, Abdul’Aziz Abubakar Yari, has refused the persuasion of President-elect, Bola Tinubu, to step down for Senator Godswill Akpabio in the Senate Presidency race, saying he will go ahead to contest position. Yari, the immediate-past governor of Zamfara State, said the contest for the Senate Presidency will be based on constitutional provisions and not instructions by anyone. He said, “What is going to happen that day, it is going to happen based on the instructions of the constitution and not for anyone.” The former member of House of Representatives described the contest as Senators’ business, backed by the 1999 Constitution to choose their leaders within themselves and not based on instructions from anyone.
