Tinubu May Lose Control Of APC In New Leadership Struggle

The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the APC had on June 25, 2020, dissolved its National Working Committee (NWC) where Tinubu and his associ­ates had a clear majority. They lost the battle as the management of the party structure is now in the hands of a caretaker committee and state governors who are bat­tling to reassert their control over the party’s machinery. Although the general view is that Tinubu will run for the presidency in 2023, but he has not announced any such inten­tions. Sources said the former Lagos State governor now ex­periences serious rivals in the party. The divisions in the party are said to be led by the camps of Nasir el Rufai, governor of Kaduna State and Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Trans­port on one side; and deposed chairman of the APC, Ada...

‘Like Jesus, I Am Tempted To Back Out Of Biafra Struggle’ – Nnamdi Kanu

Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), says like Jesus Christ, he is sometimes tempted to back out of the struggle for the realization of the sovereign state of Biafra. Kanu shared his thoughts while reacting to the recent clash between some members of the secessionist group and security agents in Enugu state on Sunday, August 23. In a letter to members of the secessionist group, Kanu compared himself to Jesus Christ who said to God at the Garden of Gethsemane “if it be possible, let this cup pass from me” when faced with temptations. The letter in part reads “In my most private moments, when I reflect on this struggle and its fallouts, I have often been tempted, like Christ, to ask that this cup be passed from me.

“Man Utd Have Become Toxic Under Woodward; Even Guardiola Would Struggle” – Dailymail

The current crisis engulfing Manchester United does not come as a surprise. In fact, crises have become the norm at United. We should not call them crises anymore: this is Ed Woodward's Manchester United. It is rather poetic that in a week where they lost to West Ham and needed penalties to beat League One strugglers Rochdale at home they recorded record revenues of £627million. And, one imagines, Woodward and United's owners, the Glazer family, will be on the whole pleased with how things are going. Let's not pretend the powers that be at the club do not want United to be successful on the pitch, of course they do. But let's also not pretend that that is their priority. The priority is, instead, to sustain and grow the behemoth that is the club's global commercial ent...

I Constantly Struggled As A Comedian – Teju Babyface

Teju Babyface has admitted stand-up comedy was a struggle for him for so many years. He said, getting on stage was always a struggle and the audience didn’t help matters as well. Here’s his words to Saturday Beats. “It was always a struggle to be a comedian. You may not have seen the struggle but every time I got on stage, it was a constant struggle. I had to prove myself to the audience constantly at every performance. It was a constant struggle and there were times I had been called on stage and the applause at the best of time would be polite, at the worst of times it would be non-existent. If you think about it, I really did not look like a comedian. It was as if the audience did not believe I could make them laugh; so I always had to prove myself. There was a time that it did not matt...

Femi Fani-Kayode: “Buhari Is Looking Like Gollum, Behaving Like A Goblin”

THE AILING PRESIDENT AND THE COMING CONFLAGRATION IN NIGERIA If the United Kingdom’s Foreign Minister, Boris Johnson, can describe the Leader of the Opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, as a “mutton-headed old mugwump” and an “Islington herbivore” how on earth should we describe our very own President Muhammadu Buhari in Nigeria? As each day passes he looks more and more like the colorful creature called Gollum in J.R. Tolkien’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ and behaves more and more like the goblins and orcs in that same book. This is a man who came back from the United Kingdom as an ailing and fading ghost and who, despite all entreaties and pleas from men and women of goodwill, has refused to resign. Since he came back he has not been seen in any public function, apart from the u...
