You’ll loose woefully come 2023 PDP to APC.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Benue State chapter, has said the campaign of calumny is being orchestrated against the party and its Tiv consensus governorship candidate, Rt. Hon.Titus Tyoapine Uba, by the All Progressives Congress (APC), shows that the opposition is afraid of defeat in 2023.

The PDP in a statement issued by its State Publicity Secretary, Bemgba Iortyom, on Wednesday, said heavier defeat awaits Benue APC in 2023 than they suffered in 2019, stressing that the APC stooping to fabrication of fairytale and lies only reflects fear and outright panic going into the coming polls.

The umbrella party urged APC to come to terms with the hard fact that the Benue electorate, in making choices in 2023, will not be fooled by smokescreens of lies and insults on opponents, but would be led to those choices by a combination of antecedents of candidates and track-record of political platforms sponsoring them.

I feel the pains Igbo in Nigeria more than anyone else Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale.

Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale, the Oluwo of Iwo, has told the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, that no monarch in the country feels the pains of Igbos more than he does.

The monarch, in a statement signed by Alli Ibraheem, his Chief Press Secretary, noted that the Igbo group is a respected body representing a sophisticated, intelligent, hardworking, cosmopolitan, industrious and enlightened race, saying He (Oluwo of Iwo) has Igbo in his blood.

Recall that some media outlets had reported that the Oluwo of Iwo had allegedly said at a function that the Igbo cannot be entrusted with the office of the Nigerian presidency.

The report did not go down well with the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, who in a statement stated that it would refrain from hoisting the monarch with his petard

Reacting, the palace of the monarch stated that, It is evident from their statement that the Ohanaeze Ndigbo has false knowledge of Oluwo.

It is disappointing that my beloved Ohanaeze Ndigbo could jump on the media in response to a misleading headline cast to sell the story.

Oluwo remains one of the leading monarchs canvassing for a united Nigeria, equity and justice most especially for the Igbo tribe because I have suffered marginalization, the statement further reads.

It is less than a year to the 2023 general elections: Governor Tambuwal will quit office for a successor.

Expectedly, Sokoto, the seat of the Caliphate, has started witnessing the wind of political contest.

Posters and billboards of aspirants have taken spaces across the state with the PDP dominating the show.

The opposition, APC, which is no doubt equally popular in the state is determined to reclaim the mandate it lost in 2019.

However, the party is currently struggling to get out of a web of crisis rocking its structures in the state.

In line with the party’s desire to return to power in the state, some of its aspirants are already being promoted on social media.

Karl Nehammer Australian Chancellor to meet Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Monday.

The Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer will meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Monday (Apr 11), an Austrian government spokesperson said, in what would be the first face-to-face meeting between Putin and a European Union leader since Russia’s Feb 24 invasion of Ukraine.

I’m going to meet Vladimir Putin in Moscow tomorrow, Nehammer wrote on Twitter.

We are militarily neutral, but (have) a clear position on the Russian war of aggression against #Ukraine,” he wrote, referring to Austria’s position. “It must stop! It needs humanitarian corridors, ceasefire & full investigation of war crimes.

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov confirmed to RIA news agency that Putin would be holding talks with Nehammer on Monday.

The planned meeting with the Russian leader follows a trip by Nehammer to Ukraine on Saturday, during which the Austrian chancellor met Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

Putin has been largely shunned by Western leaders since the start of the conflict, though he met Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett in the Kremlin in early March.

Neutral Austria has been providing humanitarian aid to Ukraine as well as helmets and body armour for civilians rather than weapons. Nehammer, a conservative, has been visibly moved by telephone conversations with Zelenskiy and says he wants to show support.

Nehammer said on Twitter he had briefed other European partners regarding his visit to Moscow, including European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, European Council President Charles Michel, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and of course also Ukrainian president Zelenskyy.
