Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar is facing a legal hurdle seeking to disqualify him from presenting himself as a candidate for the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria.


A group, identified as the Incorporated Trustees of Egalitarian Mission for Africa has approached the Federal High Court in Abuja, seeking an order to stop Atiku from contesting future presidential elections in Nigeria.


The group told the court that it is a non-governmental association registered in 13 African countries.


According to the plaintiff in the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/177, Atiku is not a Nigerian by birth and therefore should not be eligible to become the President of the country.

The men on a motorcycle were pursued by commercial motorcyclists and beaten to stupor.

One died, the other was arrested.

Police said Ikegwuonu operates by getting young girls and brining in men to impregnate them.

The young girls are sent away after their give birth and their babies sold.


7) Southern Nigeria has no land for herdsmen — IPOB, MASSOB

The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB; and the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, yesterday, stated that the whole of Southern Nigeria, particularly the South East does not have land for Fulani herdsmen to make a permanent settlement.


The groups also accused the federal government of deceiving Nigerians by allegedly paying ransom to the bandits terrorising some parts of the country while at the same time denying negotiating with them.


8) 2023: Zoning Not In Our Party’s Constitution – APC Chieftain

The Osun State Caretaker Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adegboyega Famodun, has said that zoning was not part of the party’s constitution.


The APC chieftain asserted that zoning is just an “administrative arrangement and agreement” within the party.

Famodun, however, said that it would not be a bad idea if the APC decided to zone the 2023 presidential ticket to the South-West.


He said the states in the South-West zone had always delivered substantial votes for APC during presidential elections.


Famodun, who is the immediate past chairman of the party in the state, said any internal issues the party was having in the state were normal and would be resolved amicably.
