Spread the gist

The Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Edo State election last Saturday Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has refuted claims that he is under pressure from party leaders to accept defeat. In a statement by his Director of Communication and Media, John Mayaki, the APC standard bearer also condemned a video that went viral where he was calling on Governor Godwin Obaseki to return to the APC. He therefore, urged the media to desist from speculative reports, Ize-Iyamu said: “I was shocked this morning (yesterday) when I saw reports saying I begged Obaseki to return to APC after the election. While immediately responding to it, another one emerged. I will restate that I never begged him to return after the election. I deliberately did not reply when I saw all that rumour on the social media with people tagging me in them. “Now I saw another report in the media stating that APC leaders are mounting pressure on me to accept defeat. In all fairness to the National leadership of my party, they never mounted any pressure on me. So I wonder where their source got information from. The public reposes a lot of trust in the media for authentic information. What happens when this trust is betrayed?” Ize-Iyamu reiterated his earlier position that he had not yet made up his mind on the next step to take. “I already tweeted that I am studying the result and consulting widely on my next line of action. Speculative reporting must be condemned. When I make up my mind, I will let my supporters know.

COUP: As ECOWAS May Lift Mali Sanction Today – Nigeria’s Ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan.

Spread the gist

Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria Ex-President, mediating in the Mali crisis for the West Africa bloc ECOWAS, said the organisation would probably decide on Friday whether it would lift economic sanctions against the country. Goodluck Jonathan called the measures imposed on the country by the 15-nation bloc “unfortunate”, when speaking in Mali’s capital Bamako on Wednesday. After an August 18 coup that toppled president Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, West African leaders heaped pressure on Mali’s ruling junta to return power to civilians. A junta-appointed committee this week named retired colonel Bah Ndaw as interim president, is set to govern for at most 18 months before arranging for elections. The 70-year-old former defence minister will be sworn in on Friday, alongside junta leader Colonel Assimi Goita, who will serve as interim vice president. On the 23rd of September 2020, Goodluck Jonathan said that ECOWAS was “eager” to make a decision on the sanctions, which threatens to pull down the Sahel’s state economy. These are what Goodluck Jonathan told the reporters, “ECOWAS doesn’t want any sanctions in any part of the community” He continued by saying that it’s up to Ghanaian President and current ECOWAS Leader Nana Akufo-Addo, to announce the decision. “I believe on Friday after the inauguration, probably he will make that pronouncement,” he concluded.

I will miss my friends who have always made me happy.” “I don’t know what to say, I have nothing prepared for today. I can only thank the Club for having trusted me knowing where I came from for a mistake I had made. Thanks to all the fans who have supported me during my stage here. “Before I came here, I only dreamed of Barcelona in the Playstation. I leave many friends here. It’s not just a player who leaves, but a human being who has feelings is leaving, things have been invented, things that are not true have been leaked to the press and I don’t deserve it. Regardless of the length of the contract, the club and the players needed change. In this case, the new coach did not rely on me.” “When I came here, they told me that Messi wanted only the best for him, but the truth was different. We did everything we could do for the club. I must be proud of the 6 years I spent at the club and now I understand that it is time to leave and all I can do is be grateful to Barcelona for all the moments I have lived. I was expecting that. I respected the conversation I had with Koeman and trained with the team until I settled on my future. I spoke with Griezmann and Godin about Atlético.”
