The claim by House of Representatives’ Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, that he won his Dass/Bogoro/Tafawa Balewa Federal constituency has been challenged by his opponent of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dalhatu Kantana.

Mr Dogara’s office released figures Sunday afternoon showing he was coasting to victory in the polls which took place on Saturday.



INEC is yet to release official results for the constituency.

Mr Shehu, a professor, said the voting did not take place in Mr Dogara’s town of Bagoro, saying the 49,000 claimed to be recorded there were cooked up.

“The claimed victory by Dogara is false and thus null and void. The results of Bogoro where Dogara is claimed to have polled 40,000 are not valid and have not been duly accepted by INEC.

Facebook suspends thousands of apps in response to Cambridge Analytica row

Published

Facebook Inc said, it has suspended tens of thousands of apps on the social networking platform, as part of the company’s ongoing app developer investigation it began in March 2018 in response to the Cambridge Analytica row.

The suspended apps are associated with about 400 developers, Facebook said, adding that it is not necessarily an indication that these apps were posing a threat to users.

Earlier this year, the company agreed to pay a record-breaking $5 billion fine to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to resolve a government probe into its privacy practices.

The FTC privacy probe was triggered last year by allegations that Facebook violated a 2012 consent decree and inappropriately shared information of 87 million users with British political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica.

Facebook has since agreed to boost safeguards on user data and has put curbs on the amount of information that third-party developers can request from platform users.

“… We’re making progress. We won’t catch everything, and some of what we do catch will be with help from others outside Facebook,” the company said in a blogpost.
