Saturday Sept 29, 2018

Peoples Democratic Party's candidate in the Ekiti Governorship election of July 14, 2018, Professor Olusola Eleka's petition, on Saturday September 29, 2018 suffered a serious set back this morning as his Motion to conduct  a recount of all the ballot papers used during the conduct of the Governorship Election Ekiti State was dismissed by the Hon. Tribunal sitting in Abuja

The grounds for refusing  basically are the generic nature of the pleadings on recount and the involvement of the Secretary of the Tribunal in the Recount & who was prayed to authenticate and tender the Results of the Recount.

The three-man panel Tribunal headed by Justice Suleiman Belgore, held that such request lacked merit, even as it accused PDP and Kolapo of “fishing for evidence under the guise of ballot recounting”.

According to Justice Belgore, the two petitioners (PDP and Kolapo), did not in their pleadings, list result from recounted ballot papers fr…

Why I Ignore Blackmailers, Face My Campaign - MKD, Reps Hopeful

Image
House of Representatives hopeful in Ekiti South Federal Constituency 1, Mr Makinde Araoye has declared those behind his blackmail as persona non grata. Hence his decision to ignore them and their principal.

Speaking to Fountain Newsbreaker at Ikere Ekiti today, Mr Araoye noted that "only unserious aspirant will be joining issues with a faceless writer who is not from his constituency more so that the said Mr Jacob Ilesanmi is confirmed by those who know him to be a psychiatric patient."

Araoye, who shared the joy of his birthday on Wednesday amidst thousands of his supporters, announced that he would not look back in his determination to improve the lives of ordinary Ekiti people. "Any life which is not dedicated to the pursuit of better ideals is not worthy of living," he said.

The Ilawe Ekiti born son of a Medicine Professor considered it a sign of weakness for an aspirant to be employing "some never-do-well" to be destroying opponents. According yo hi…

Image
Timothy Owoeye, an Osun State lawmaker seen on a viral video depicting him as bathing in the market square with human blood for ritual, was a victim of a ritual syndicate which had operated in the state for a long time, the police have told PREMIUM TIMES.

Little was known outside of Osun State about Mr Owoeye until a video showing him being beaten by some men who purportedly caught him taking a midnight ritual shower in a market hit the Internet this weekend.

Some of those who circulated the video on social media said Mr Owoeye, who is currently the House Majority Leader of Osun State House of Assembly, was performing the ritual as he intensified activities towards his political success in the upcoming general elections.

But Mr Owoeye, representing Ilesa West for the All Progressives Congress, was actually a victim of a high-wire blackmail racket that had seen him part with humongous amount of his personal wealth in a desperate bid to save not only his own career but family image, Os…
