Noble Igwe Receives Criticisms for a Photo he Shared Showcasing his Hometown.

Noble Igwe has responded after he received heat for a photo he shared to showcase his hometown to his followers. Days ago, the 360nobs founder shared a photo of himself trudging through a shallow stream with a keg of water on his head in his hometown, Umuomaku, Anambra state. He captioned the photo: "Son of the Soil. Went to Ubo to have my bath and fetch drinking water. Christmas in Umuomaku is incomplete without a trip to the stream. Proudly Igbo."

PDP Says El-Rufai’s Apology Is APC’s Admission Of Bello’s Failure

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has observed that the public apology and kneeling by the Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Kogi state campaign council, Kaduna state Governor Nasir El-Rufai, confirms that even the APC agrees that Governor Yahaya Bello does not merit a second term. According to a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday by Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP National Publicity Secretary, the genuflection by El-Rufai is also a direct confirmation that the failed Governor Bello cannot lay claim to any genuine vote at the November 16 governorship election. The PDP noted that the Edo State deputy governor, Philip Shuaibu, also knelt before the Kogi people to beg for Yahaya Bello which further shows that it is public knowledge that the governor misused the opportunity given...
