Revealed: APC Rakes In N12.6bn From Sale Of Forms To Aspirants

The All Progressives Congress realised N12.635bn from the sale of its Presidential, Senate and House of Representatives expression of interest and nomination forms for the recently concluded APC primaries held across the country.

SUNDAY PUNCH arrived at the figures after computing the cost of the forms and multiplying it by the number of aspirants who paid for and collected same to participate in the primaries.

Only President Muhammadu Buhari was supported to collect the forms to contest the presidential primary. The president’s supporters were said to have paid N45m to obtain the forms on his behalf.

Governorship aspirants paid the non-refundable fee of N22.5m each to obtain their forms as of the close of sales; 171 aspirants were confirmed by the party to have paid for and obtained the forms.

When the figure was multiplied by N22.5m, it amounted to N3,847,500,000 or N3.847bn.

For the Senate, 386 aspirants paid N7m each to obtain the forms and when the number was multiplied by the total number of aspirants, it brought the figure to N2.702bn.

No fewer than 1,587 persons paid N3.8m each to obtain the party’s nomination forms. When the number was multiplied, it amounted to N6,030,600,000 or N6.03bn.

When the sums were put together, they amounted to a grand total of N12, 625,100,000 or N12.625bn.

Efforts to speak with the new APC National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, were unsuccessful as of the time of filing this report on Friday.

Calls to his mobile were neither answered nor returned. A response to a text message sent to him on the subject was still being awaited as of the time of filing this report.

It was however gathered that the party leadership opted to increase the cost of its forms to raise the needed resources to conduct the primaries and also prosecute the 2019 elections.

The APC National Vice-Chairman (South-South), Hilliard Eta, had, in an interview with SUNDAY PUNCH, said, “Anybody who cannot afford the cost of our forms has no business running for an election.

“We all know elections anywhere in the world are expensive ventures. You have to be prepared because you will require money for logistics, to print posters, T-shirts and other items.

“As a party, we have made conscious efforts to ensure that we do not dip our hands into public treasury to run the party as was the case in the past.”

BREAKING!!! Biafra : Nnamdi Kanu’s Younger Brother Breaks Silence On His Whereabouts

Emmanuel Kanu, the younger brother to the leader of the proscribed Indegenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, said on Friday that his brother was alive.
Emmanuel said that Kanu was spotted at a worship place in Israel.

He made the disclosure in a telephone conversation with newsmen in Umuahia, saying that he received the information through an online video broadcast on Friday.

“I can boldly confirm to you that the person in the video is my brother, Kanu.

He was praying in the video that we saw.

“We are happy that he is still alive and we will try to establish communication with him,” Emmanuel said.

He said that the news was received with wild jubilation in their family and Isiama Afaraukwu community in general.

“Everybody in my family and the entire community is celebrating and thanking God since we received the news,” he said.
He said that the Deputy Director of the organisation, Uche Ejiofor, also confirmed the online video report, when the family spoke with him on cellphone.

Newsmen report that the community declared Kanu and his parents missing in the aftermath of the Sept. 14, 2017 alleged invasion of their country home by members of the “Operation Pyton Dance II."

The operation was deployed to dislodge the group in Umuahia, its operational headquarters.

They claimed that Kanu’s father, who was the traditional ruler of Isiama Afaraukwu in Umuahia North Local Government Area of Abia, got missing after the alleged attack on his palace.

2019 Election: Why Atiku Can't Beat Buhari - Tony Momoh

A former minister of Information, Chief Tony Momoh, on Thursday said he was confident that President Muhammadu Buhari would win the 2019 presidential election.

Atiku and Buhari

It is less than four months to the presidential election, but the shadow boxing has begun in earnest. The two leading contenders are bragging about their chances.

Former Minister of Information Prince Tony Momoh yesterday said he was confident President Muhammadu Buhari will win.

Momoh told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on telephone that the president deserved re-election.

The Atiku Abubakar camp disagreed. It said the former Vice President would retire President Muhammadu Buhari to his village in Daura after the election.

Momoh said Atiku, the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), could not stop Buhari as he (Abubakar) was only popular with the elite and not the masses.

Momoh, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said the Buhari administration had impacted on many ordinary Nigerians, and they would vote him in 2019.

He, however, said Buhari would lose some votes in the North because Atiku is from the region, but that the APC candidate would make up in other regions to win.

“I don’t think Atiku can defeat Buhari. No; he can’t, Buhari has done well in the delivery of his electoral promises and he will get the support of the people.

“Look at the war against insurgency, for instance, has he not done well? Is the situation in the Northeast as it used to be? Of course, there is relative security in the region and the people will want to vote for an administration that made that possible.

“Again, the school feeding programme, the conditional cash transfers and the other social programmes of the government, tens of thousands of Nigerians have benefited. You don’t expect them not to vote Buhari.

“These are the real people that will vote, not the people on Facebook or Twitter. The people who are moving against the President now are the elite, not the people, and the reasons are obvious.

“Yes, Atiku is popular with the elite, but how many are they? So I don’t see him winning, though, he will get votes in the North as he is from that region and he is a Fulani and a Muslim like Buhari.

“However, the President will make up for lost votes in other regions like Southeast and South-South where he has delivered many projects to win,’’ he said.

The former minister said the achievements of the President’s fight against corruption and the power of incumbency would work in his favour.
To Momoh, it is an illusion for the PDP to believe the selection of former Governor Peter Obi of Anambra as Atiku’s running mate will deliver the region to the party.

He said the Igbo are politically sophisticated and it had never been easy predicting their direction in any election.

Momoh argued that Buhari picked running mates, the late Chuba Okadigbo and the late Ume Ezeoke, on two occasions for elections, but still lost in the Southeast.

The former minister said the region was open to both candidates in 2019, based on the large number of both APC and PDP members in the area.

He urged Nigerians to participate in the electoral process and obtain their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to vote leaders of their choice.

“The power to choose in 2019 belongs to the people. For that reason, I urge Nigerians to obtain their PVCs to participate in the process.
“It is only when we participate that we can vote people of our choice to help realise the development objectives of our nation,’’ Momoh said.

He urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to do its best to deliver credible elections in 2019.

In an email message last night by Atiku’s Media Adviser Paul Ibe, the former Vice President said the 2019 election will be a referendum on the “failed” All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.

Why We Prefer Fairly-used/Okrika Underwears - Nigerian Women

Some Nigerian women interviewed in Umuahia, the Abia state capital recently, have revealed why they prefer to buy faily-used underwears, also known as 'Okirika'.

The business of fairly-used female underwear now enjoy high patronage among the womenfolk in Umuahia, Abia, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

The dealers of the materials locally called “okrika’’, are also recording high traffic of customers daily from neighbouring communities to the state capital.

Some of the women, mainly middle-aged, who shoved themselves around to enable them pick their choice of the underwear at Isi Gate Market, Umuahia, told NAN that they preferred the “okrika’’, especially pants, to new ones.

One of them, who made selections of different colours and designs, said she and most women now preferred the fairly-used underwear often imported from abroad.

Asked if she was not ashamed being seen buying the materials, the lady who pleaded anonymity, queried why she should be ashamed of her choice of underwear.

“Ashamed of what? Ashamed of something good? Ask this seller, l am her very good customer. As a matter of fact, she always alerts me whenever she has new consignment. The fairly-used underwear is durable.

“I don’t just buy them because they are cheap, but because they are of good quality.

“I usually buy the sexy ones and I feel very comfortable whenever I wear it. My husband usually tells me they are good on me, too,” she said.

A male passer-by, who spoke to NAN on the issue, on condition of anonymity, attributed the high patronage of the second-hand pants and other briefs to the nation’s bad economy.

“It is not only underwear that our women scramble for, they buy all sorts of fairly used wears. Anytime I pass this place I see them gather round the sellers, picking all manner of used clothes.

“I think this goes a long way to tell how bad our economy is. Nigeria is a dumping ground for all kinds of used products from America, Europe, Asia and other continents”.

But, a lady, who gave her name as Mary, said she did not like the idea of using fairly-used underwear. “I personally don’t like it. I don’t like the ones I saw.

“In fact, I don’t like it for health reasons.

One is capable of contracting an infection through this. This is underwear, not outer wears.

“I don’t even know the health status of the person that wore it before now. The body of a woman is very exposed.

“So, why should I buy disease for myself just because I want cheap or so-called quality underwear; I prefer new ones for health reasons,” she said.

In her reaction, one of the sellers of the second-hand pants, dismissed the health hazard fear, saying that the new ones had more health risk “because of the chemicals applied on them’’.

She said: “Okrika (fairly-used) pants are durable and their prices are affordable, too. They don’t have any health risk provided they are soaked and washed in hot water.

“By the way, it is not all that are fairly-used. Those ones that have labels on them are not fairly-used, they are clearance sales (clothes that are out of season).’’

She said that she made a living from the sales as she enjoyed high patronage from women. “This is the only business that I do. I know how much profit I make daily,” she stated.

However, Dr Ifeyinwa Uma-Kalu, Principal Medical Officer I at the Abia Government House Clinic, said that fairly-used underwear could have dangerous health implications, if not properly treated.

According to her, if the underwear has been used by people that are ill, people that have one skin infection or the other and the buyer doesn’t treat it well, it could be a medium to contact infection.

“Common ones among them are fungi infections. So, a lady can be affected with a fungi infection called genital warts. It is advisable to treat the underwear properly, either with hot water or disinfectants, before use,” she said.

2019 Election: APC Defies INEC, Submits Zamfara Candidates' List

The threat by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) that APC will not participate in Zamfara election has been shunned by the party.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday submitted the list of presidential and senatorial candidates to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in a bid to beat the October 18 deadline.

The Guardian learnt that the APC’s director of organisation, Alhaji Abubakar Kari, led other senior staff of the party in a branded vehicle to submit the list around 3:00 p.m.

Dozens of party bigwigs from across the country were seen at the secretariat speaking in hushed tones, uncertain if their names were on the list. The party was also said to have defied INEC’s order by going ahead to present a list of candidates from Zamfara State.

INEC had banned the APC from fielding candidates, after the expiration of the stipulated time.

But a deputy director of information in the commission, Aliyu Bello, said: “As far as we are concerned, the issue of Zamfara is foreclosed.

We are not collecting any list from them, as they failed to meet up with the required standard.”

He added that INEC could not be held liable for the failure of the party to comply with constitutional provisions.

All efforts by The Guardian to see the list proved abortive, as party officials ensured it remained a closely guarded secret.
Among those at the scene was Senator Ovie Omo-Agege (Delta Central), who belongs to a faction of the party in Delta State.

The crisis rocking the APC in the state took a turn for the worse, as a Federal High Court in Asaba restrained the National Working Committee (NWC) from submitting any list from the state to INEC.



The Governor of Bayelsa State, the Honourable Henry Seriake Dickson, would lead officials of the Bayelsa State Government to receive the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, who is on an official visit to Bayelsa and expected to visit some of the major camps for flood displaced persons in the state.

The Special Adviser to the Governor on Media Relations, Mr. Fidelis Soriwei, stated in a statement on Thursday that the Vice President would visit some of the major IDP camps within the Yenagoa metropolis.

He said that the Vice President would be accompanied by Senator Magnus Abe, the Minister of State for Environment, Ibrahim Jibrin, the Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Babafemi Ojudu, the Director General òf the National Emergency Management Agency Mustapha Maihaja, the Senior Special Assistant to the VP on Media, Laolu Akande and others.

Male student arrested for stealing female student’s panties, reveals what he does with them

A student at the Midlands State Unniversity, Zimbabwe, identified as Prince Danda, was arrested for stealing panties belonging to female students from the washing lines.

Prince was arrested after two female students reported the bizarre incident. On Sunday, police were called to a house in Nehosho, a neighbourhood of Gweru popular with students.

On arrival, police raided Prince Danda’s room and found him with a stash of women’s underwear. Police were only able to locate the owners of four pairs, belonging to the two female students who saw him take their panties.

Danda, a journalism student, was arrested and appeared before a Gweru magistrate on Tuesday, charged with theft.

Sources at the university told ZimLive the two students told police that after they had confronted Danda yet he still went ahead and took the panties.

A student familiar with the situation said:
He told the two girls that he was going to do something to the panties and when he’s done, they will both want to sleep with him and they won’t be able to turn down his advances.

Prince Danda, a final year student, was asked by the police why he steals panties and he said he uses them for masturbation. He allegedly told the police that he would often sniff the underwear to feel the female scent and be sexually aroused. During those moments, he will imagine himself having sex with the owners.

He appeared before Gweru regional courts, yesterday, and was slapped with a community service.
