Nigeria Senate President tongues reasons for defection.

Published

on

Bukola Saraki, Nigeria’s Senate president and third most powerful politician has finally confirmed that he is returning to the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Saraki on Monday announced his resignation from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) stating at first that he had done so after extensive consultations.

I wish to inform Nigerians that, after extensive consultations, I have decided to take my leave of the All Progressives Congress (APC).



The former Kwara State governor went on in a tweet thread to elaborate on how irreconcilable differences between the legislative and executive arms of government had forced him to the point of leaving the APC.

According to him, the party he dumped the PDP in 2014 to join had failed to embrace some of its own members when they offered divergent views on issues of national importance, he also eleborated on how his allies had suffered persecution from those in authority.

He stressed that the President Buhari and his vice Osinbajo along with the new APC leader Adams Oshiomole and some serving governors had tried to reconcile the issues he had faced but elements he labeled ‘fifth columnists,’ still stood in the way of those well meaning efforts.

These individuals went to work and ensured that they scuttled the great efforts and the good intentions of these aforementioned leaders of the party.

Perhaps, had these divisive forces not thrown the cogs in the wheel at the last minutes, and in a manner that made it impossible to sustain any trust in the process, the story today would have been different.

Every Nigerian must have an instinctive confidence that he or she will be treated with justice and equity in any part of the country regardless of the language they speak or how they worship God.

“This is the great task that trumps all. Unless we are able to achieve this, all other claim to progress, would remain unsustainable. This is the task that I am committing myself to and I believe that it is in this PDP, that I will have the opportunity to play my part.

“It is my hope that the APC will respect the choice that I have made as my democratic right, and understand that even though we will now occupy a different political space, we do not necessarily become enemies unto one another.”

DR Congo blame Unending Ebola Outbreak on Violence , Community Mistrust.

Published

on

DR Congo Ministry of Health spokesperson Jessica Ilunga has declared that violence and community mistrust have continued to hamper all efforts to control and end the fresh Ebola outbreak, which started Aug. 1.



Though according to the World Health Organization the number of new Ebola cases has dropped slightly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as there are 33% fewer cases to date in February compared with the same time period in December per STAT’s Helen Branswell, but some experts warn Axios that there remain signs that this outbreak is far from over.

Meanwhile, some experts warn that, that doesn’t mean the world’s second-largest Ebola outbreak on record is yet under control, and in fact it could simply be moving to new areas of the sprawling country.

Johns Hopkins’ public health expert Jennifer Nuzzo maintains there are several reasons people should continue to view this outbreak as a cause for concern.

However, Nuzzo said Congo needs more than money from the international community and the U.S. in particular. Safety concerns have largely caused the CDC to limit its Ebola experts to the capital city of Kinshasa, where some have returned after being evacuated during an uptick in election-related violence, Nuzzo added that Now is the time for the U.S. to send them into the field.
