Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar yesterday formerly dumped the ruling All Progressives congress (APC).Atiku, whose decision did not come as a surprise to many, is believed to be on his way back to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The former vice president, in a statement made available to The Guardian in Abuja, yesterday, said he made the mistake of his life to have joined the APC in the hope that it would adhere to the tenets of democracy.

Accusing the leadership of the party of high-handedness, he claimed that he, alongside key members of the party, had been schemed out of its affairs.


The Wazirin Adamawa also justified his resolve to dump the party, saying it was borne out of the fact that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration has not lived up to the expectations of Nigerians.

The statement reads, inter alia: “On December 19, 2013, I received members of the APC at my house in Abuja. They had come to appeal to me to join their party, after my party, the PDP, had become factionalised as a result of the special convention of August 31, 2013, which had left me in a situation where I was, with several other loyal party members, in limbo, not knowing which of the parallel executives of the party was the legitimate leadership.

“It was under this cloud that members of the APC made the appeal to me to join their party, with the promise that the injustices and failure, which had dogged the then PDP, would not be replicated in the APC, and with the assurance that the vision other founding fathers and I had for the PDP could be actualised through the APC.

“It was on the basis of this invitation and the assurances made to me that I, being party-less at that time, accepted on February 2, 2014, the hand of fellowship given to me by the APC.” He continued: “On that day, I said ‘it is the struggle for democracy and constitutionalism and service to my country and my people that are driving my choice and my decision’ to accept the invitation to join the APC…

Jose Mourinho admitted Friday he is growing ever more anxious about the prospect of losing Belgian international Marouane Fellaini as the midfielder’s contract talks with Manchester United drag on.
The Old Trafford manager, speaking ahead of his side’s Premier League match against Brighton on Saturday, has revealed that he is not involved in the discussions designed to tie the 30-year-old Belgian international to a new, extended deal.

Fellaini is understood to want a longer-term contract than the one currently being offered by the United board and rejected one offer, believed to be for two years, in September.

Since then, talks appear to have stalled and, in January, Fellaini will be free to talk to foreign clubs as he enters the final six months of his current deal.

“Yes,” said Mourinho when asked if he is worried at the prospect of losing Fellaini. “(I have done) nothing, it is a discussion between the player and the board. I’m not involved in contracts… and I respect both.

Tell us the story of Exquisite Magazine, how it all started. How did you transit from being a pharmacologist to becoming a publisher? What was the motivation?
I started exquisite magazine in September 2003, because I thought instead of complaining about something, just do something about it. I was born in London and moved to the outskirts of London when I got married. Looking to buy my supply of magazines one day made me realise there were only a handful of magazines for women of colour and I thought to start my own, since I love writing and I have been writing since I was 10 years old. I spoke to a few people I knew that could help with putting a magazine together, I also acquired more knowledge in my new passion and here we are today.

On transitioning from Pharmacology to Publishing, funny thing is, it wasn’t that difficult. I don’t know, I think I’m blessed. It didn’t feel like a new role to me, I didn’t feel like fish out of water, I did a lot of research, read a lot of books, including the one I found in a WH Smiths titled: “How to start a magazine”. I couldn’t believe I could find a book with that title that gave me all the information I needed. I read the book from cover to cover, highlighted and placed-post its notes on different pages. I still have the book today, 14years later. I felt like I went on a crash course in Publishing and Editing and it paid off. All that learning, with the transferable skills I acquired from my degree in Pharmacology, gave me the boost I needed.


My motivation was and still is the drive to succeed at something I set my mind to and believe in. I was groomed by my parents like that. I was motivated by the fact that I could do something about the fact that we needed more magazines for women of colour and I am blessed to have been able to run with that vision.

Sequel to the suspension of 60 magistrates by the Ondo State Judicial Service Commission (JSC), the Acting Judge, Oluwatoyin Akeredolu, is currently facing N300m litigation for breach of civil service laws and gross judicial misconduct.
The 60 magistrates and six other senior registrars were suspended by JSC on September 14, 2017 for “perceived irregularity in their appointment,” though their salaries were reportedly released from the Accountant General’s Office, but held by JSC.

One of the affected magistrates sought redress at the National Industrial Court of Nigeria, Akure Judicial Division, Akure, with Suit No: NCIN/AK/33/2017, having the state JSC and Acting Chief Judge as defendants.


The claimant, Iretiolu Wemimo Dada, in a statement of material facts to the court, claimed in her reliefs that her appointment letter dated November 2013 as Chief Magistrate Grade II was valid, legal and subsisting.

“The sum of N300, 000,000 as aggravated and exemplary damages against the defendants for the undeserved, outrageous and unwarranted contempt, cruelty, malice, oppression, humiliation, molestation, embarrassment, degradation, mental trauma, torture, inconveniences and hardship occasioned in the defendants’ act of unlawful suspension of the claimant from the post as Chief Magistrate Grade II.”

In a letter written earlier to the National Judicial Council (NJC), they had alleged that the state governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, influenced their sack, also accusing the Acting Chief Judge of using them to settle scores with her immediate past predecessor.

Alongside others who kicked against the suspension and cried foul, Dada sought an order setting aside the letter of suspension, describing it as wrongful, invalid and void.
