Babangida Speaks On Defection From PDP To APC

Published

on

The former Governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says that he has no intention of defecting to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Mr. Aliyu made the remark on Monday in Minna, the state capital, following the defection of 34,826 politicians from other political parties including Alhaji Aminu Yusuf, deputy chairman of PDP in the state.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that many of the politicians who abandoned their various political parties to defect to the APC were mainly Aliyu’s close allies in the state.

“I have no intention of defecting to the APC because I believe in the PDP. I had the opportunity of decamping to the APC when I led the G-7 Governors but did not do so because of my belief in the PDP.

“What we protested then was to correct some of the abnormality in PDP but not to defect to the APC.

“If I were a selfish politician then I would have defected to the APC then. May be I would have become a minister now,’’ he said.

He noted that the PDP made him a governor, saying that it was a strong political party if not for internal wrangling that made it to lose the 2015 election.

The former governor said that the party had started working toward correcting the wrongs at the various levels.

On the herders/farmers clashes across the country, he said that the federal government must tag it a security concern and plan how to stop it.

He advised the government to establish cattle ranches where necessary and carry the stakeholders along in order to avoid misunderstanding that would result in more clashes.

#LekkiMassacre: CNN Dares Nigeria Government, Updates Second Report (Video)

Published

on

The Cable News Network, CNN seems not done with the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government with the television channel releasing another report on the shooting at the Lekki toll gate during the End SARS protests.

Recall that the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, called out CNN over its report on the incident.

He added that CNN was biased in its report and needs to be sanctioned.

The Minister also addressed a letter to the management of CNN in Atlanta.

The network, however, on Tuesday released the second report with more damning footage showing soldiers shooting at unarmed protesters on October 20, 2020.

The second report also shows the Commander, 81 Division, Brig.Gen Ahmed Taiwo, admitting before the judicial panel in Lagos that military men had live ammunition in their weapons while at the tollgate.

CNN also noted that the statement of Brig.Gen Taiwo contradicts that of the Minister who had claimed last week that the army fired blank bullets.

It was also revealed in the new report, the moment when protesters were running as soldiers open fire at the tollgate.
