An All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmaker representing Katsina Federal Constituency, Ahmed Baba Kaita, yesterday, alleged that there were plans to remove the Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila.

“Our party gave instructions to Mr. Speaker about five days ago and he promised to get back to the party by Monday. It was the same Monday he flouted the party’s directives,” Kaita said.

“Yesterday, when we were meeting at the party secretariat, SMS were sent by the people who do not want APC to succeed in the House.

“The content was that Gbajabiamila would be removed this morning (yesterday) and they planned it. But when we arrived at this meeting, they couldn’t do so.

“They failed because they know we have the majority. As long as this House is going to be dictated by the PDP, we will resist it.

“If Dogara wants us to be with him, fine and good, we have no problems with that. He is one of our own, but only if he will align with the party’s wishes, manifestos and programmes of Mr. President, he will have a smooth ride because we have the majority.

“But as long as he flouts party’s directives and as long as he instigates unscrupulous members to attempt to remove Gbajabiamila, we will resist it.”

However, the Chief Whip, Ado Doguwa, a Dogara supporter, said there was no plan by the Speaker or the House leadership to remove Gbajabiamila.

According to him, the meeting held by the APC caucus in Hearing Room 1 was meant to iron out issues.

“This is a meeting for APC members to address and inform ourselves that enough is enough. That is, enough of misunderstanding among the APC family in the House.

“You are aware of what happened yesterday when the Speaker chaired a special session of the House to inaugurate the committees.

“I want to inform you, on behalf of the leadership that there is no crack whatsoever as far as we are concerned.

“As we speak, the Speaker and the House leadership are in the meeting room of the office of the Speaker, discussing how we can move ahead.

“Nigerians are tired of this waiting. We were elected to come and work as members of the House of Representatives,” Doguwa said.

I Received Vision That I Would Be Governor – Oyetola

Gboyega Oyetola

Governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola has stated that God revealed to him in a dream that he would be Governor of the State long before he joined the race.

He revealed this while speaking at a service held to commemorate the second anniversary of his administration at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Osun Province 1 Headquarters, Osogbo, on Sunday.

Oyetola said, “I am ordinarily not one who sees visions but on two occasions, I had a strange encounter. Imagine the son of an Imam, receiving a Christian song in a dream. That was my encounter.

“All I could remember on both occasions was the last line of the song which says ‘IleriOluwa ni lati se’. Outside of that dream, I had never heard the song before. When the impression was heavy on my heart, I called one of my friends to ask him about the song, and he told me the song was the Track 2 of Timi Oshikoya’s album.

“He went out and got me the album and immediately I started listening to the track, my consciousness was restored and then I had an understanding of what God was saying to me. That revelation has continued to give me confidence of victory each time I am faced with legal and political battles since becoming governor.”

Anyim Backed Out Of Defection Over Visit to Buhari – Umahi

Dave Umahi

Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi has claimed that a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari stopped former Senate President, Pius Anyim and National Assembly members from the state from defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He made the claim on Sunday while speaking during an APC stakeholders’ meeting at the Bouquet Lodge, Old Government House, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.

Umahi claimed that Anyim who served as Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) in the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, and others refused to defect because he outsmarted them all.

“They were planning to ambush me, but it is difficult to catch the air,” he said.

The governor insisted that he consulted all the National Assembly members and the elders from the state about his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), adding that they all agreed to the defection arrangement.

“Let me tell you, I’m not afraid of anybody but I respect everybody. But I have said that if God sent me, this will be the last fight in this state,” he said.

Umahi added: “All these people that came together to fight me, they collect contracts, they collect monthly pay, they collect vehicles. And when they are asked to bring people that worked for us, they will bring their wives, children and relations.

“Now, they are dressing words for us. We are in chapter one, in Chapter two, I will publish all that I have done for the leaders of this state.”
