Buhari Endorses Oshiomhole’s Removal As APC National Chairman ? Nigerian Website Claims

Comrade Adams Oshiomhole

BEVERLY HILLS, January 15, (THEWILL) – President Muhammadu Buhari has caved in to pressure and endorsed the removal of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in order to arrest the lingering crisis in the ruling party.

Our source who is familiar with the development, said the president gave the blessing for Oshiomhole’s ouster after some stakeholders in the party and some State Governors elected on the APC’s platform convincingly argued against the national chairman’s continued stay in office during a meeting with the president.

The source, who craved anonymity, told THEWILL that the process to ease the embattled chairman out of office has started adding that if he refuses to resign he would be forced out “using the machinery of state.”

“Oshiomhole has been told that the President wants him to leave the post but he is going round grandstanding, lobbying people close to the president and even using members of his family to beg with the hope that the president can be convinced to change his mind. He’s done. His time is up,” the source said.

The source who asked to remain anonymous said Buhari had until recently stood firmly by Oshiomhole, who has been at loggerheads with key stakeholders and did not heed the president’s admonition to resolve the crisis within the party. His critics say he is too highhanded, proud and lacks the capacity to manage a political party as diverse as the APC.

The crisis in the party Tuesday took a new twist as a meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party was marred by shouting and quarrels over the announcement of Arch. Waziri Bulama as the new National Secretary by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.

National Vice Chairman North East, Comrade Salihu Mustapha, the zone where the office of National Secretary was zoned to, accused Oshiomhole of highhandedness and not following the party’s constitution on the matter.

After storming out of the meeting, Mustapha, told reporters that Oshiomhole was not qualified to preside over the NWC meeting because a court had approved his suspension by the chapter of the party in his home state, Edo State, where he is in a bitter political fight with the Governor Godwin Obaseki and the state executive of the party.

A “time traveller from 2075” has claimed that in the future, we will eat small, white balls. Interviewed by Apex TV, the man says: “I'm going to show you food, actual food, from the future. Here is actual food from year 2075.” He then produces a jar filled with the pellets, which resemble the polystyrene balls used to fill beanbags. “Each one will enable you to stay healthy and alive for another day,” he insists.

World's longest cake baked in India 

If you fancy something more substantial than pellets, head to India where bakers broke a Guinness World Record with a cake measuring more than three miles. The colossal cake was made on long tables on the streets of Thrissur. It beat the previous record, a 1.98-mile, 4.26-inch cake made in China in 2018.

A mother in Houston has been unsettled after a Frozen doll returned to the house after she binned it twice. When her daughter’s doll began singing and talking in Spanish, even when switched off, Emily Madonia threw it out but it appeared back in the house. Then, she tightly wrapped it in a garbage bag, and put that inside another garbage bag at the bottom of their bin, and watched as it was collected. However, it re-appeared in their garden a few days later.
