3. Shehu Sani Reacts As the Niger Republic Deports Nigerians

A former Kaduna Central District Senator, Shehu Sani has reacted to the deportation of Nigerians by the Government of Niger Republic.

He said the deportation may trigger an action that will not be helpful to the brotherly relationship that exists between the two countries.

The former lawmaker wondered why a country like Niger with hundreds of thousands of its citizens living in Nigeria for generations, should take such an action.

According to Sani, "With hundreds of thousands of Citizens of the Niger Republic living in Nigeria for generations, in most parts of the North, deporting '42' Nigerians can only trigger an action that will not be to the brotherly relationship that exists between the two countries".

4. Edo 2020: Obaseki Denies Allegations Of Destroying Ize-Iyamu's Campaign Billboards

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has denied claims that he destroyed the campaign billboards of the All Progressive Congress governorship candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

Obaseki, who is seeking re-election on the platform of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), will face Ize-Iyamu and candidates from other parties in the September 19 governorship election.

In a statement on Saturday by the Governor's Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, Obaseki noted that " the allegations are belated antics of a routinely recycled politician".

Obaseki states that the allegations were "ludicrous and unfounded" adding that "Anyone who knows Ize-Iyamu very well knows that this is his approach to politics. He raises the alarm and cries wolf when no one is chasing him.

"The State government has not removed any of his billboards, this is cheap blackmail to score lame political points".
