According to  Politico , many of Trump's supporters are calling to abstain from the two elections despite the fact that they will decide which party ends up in control of the Senate because "The two GOP candidates, Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, are not only insufficiently pro-Trump, they may be complicit in Georgia's electoral fraud." "Some leaders in GA & National GOP complain I am hurting chances of @KLoeffler & @sendavidperdue to win runoff & save Senate control," Lin Wood, a prominent attorney in Georgia who has filed

The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has insisted that the Chief of Staff to the President, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, was shocked over the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi’s absence at the South-South stakeholders’ meeting with the President Muhammadu Buhari’s delegation because he knew that the Minister was at the airport with them.

Gowon breaks silence on UK Parliament’s claims he ‘stole half of Central Bank’

Image
Former Nigeria head of state, Yakubu Gowon, has denied allegations that he took to the United Kingdom “ half of the Central Bank of Nigeria”. A member of the UK Parliament, Tom Tugendhat, made the claims during a debate on the Lekki tollgate shootings of protesters. Tugendhat remarked that “we know that today, even now, in this great city of ours, there are, sadly, some people who have taken from the Nigerian people and hidden their ill-gotten gains here.” He said Gowon was one of them. According to him, Gowon took half of the CBN to the UK. However, in an interview with the BBC, Gowon described the allegations as “rubbish”. He said: “What the MP said is rubbish. I don’t know where he got that rubbish from. I served Nigeria diligently and my records are there for all to see. “I did not want to speak on this issue because people that know me know that what the MP said is not true.” Gowon was Nigeria’s Head of State from 1966 to 1975.

The singer of many anthems of the 1960s, Dylan dying last year at the age of 79," an MSNBC anchor  said  during the on-air report. MSNBC was quick to issue a retraction and apology that same day. "A quick correction, some of you online have already caught it, in our headlines just not we mentioned a trove of Bob Dylan’s documents being released,"  said  MSNBC's Joshua Johnson. "We accidentally said that he died last year. Bob Dylan is very much alive, he turned 79 this year. Sorry abo

A file photo of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike.   Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Thursday said President Muhammadu Buhari has an opportunity to address the demands of the people or put the country “on fire”. His comment comes two days after the federal government with leaders of the South-South region. At the meeting, the South-South leaders demanded for the restructuring of Nigeria, in line with the principle of true federalism. “We must understand in this country that political leadership is very key,” Wike said on Thursday during his appearance on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily. “Having the political will to implement what the people want is very serious. “I don’t want to talk about the issue of distrust or no trust in government. People have raised such issues, that they don’t think that nothing will come out of all this dialogue. I don’t agree with that. I believe that if the president does not do, given the opportunities he has now, then, he will be putting Niger
