NAIJA NEWSPAPERS: TODAY'S THE DAILY TIMES NEWSPAPER HEADLINES [12 DECEMBER, 2017].


Below are the headlines found on The Daily Times Online Newspaper for today, Tuesday, 12 December, 2017.

Tue, 12 Dec 2017
The immediate past Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee (NCC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has listed damaging campaigns and lack of consensus among aspirants from the South West zone as part of reasons the zone lost the chairmanship position of the party in the just concluded national convention in Abuja. This is even as the newly elected chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, has said that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is running a broken party and a broken government, saying that the agenda of the new executive is to reclaim power from the APC come 2019. Makarafi who denied the existence of a unity list, insisted that no list was foisted on the delegates. The former Chairman made these clarifications on Monday in Abuja in a monitored Television Programme. According to him, the South-West never had a true consensus candidate for the chairmanship position and there were some disparaging campaigns going on among aspirants from the zone. He said that the “damaging campaigns” negatively affected the chances of the region from occupying the number one position in the party. He said, “For the South-West, it was at the convention venue that they resolved on a consensus candidate. And even then, another candidate came to the state box and met the leaders and said, look, they never resolved, that he was still in the race. So, it was a total confusion. “Somebody signs on behalf of other candidates and said ‘we now have a consensus candidate and please support him’ and another going round and saying ‘no, we don’t have a consensus candidate. “The whole issue of the South-West was its inability to put itself in order in good time. And then allowing some characters that cannot stand up in terms of credibility to occupy the political and media landscape; all kinds of abuses. “And we cautioned them that negative campaign by one individual was damaging them as people and members of the PDP and they needed to call that person to order. Still, they never called him to order. And as far as I know, 90 percent of the PDP members that that person comes to will run away.” But Makarfi did not name the person involved in the negative campaign. Also commenting on the controversial unity list, Makarfi denied that the so called list damaged the credibility of the convention. The unity list contained the names of all the aspirants that eventually emerged winners of the election into different offices. Makarfi maintained that “nobody hoisted anything like unity list on delegates.” “Nobody had a list going to the polling unit. Every delegate had his ballot paper and at each polling unit, names of those standing for the election were there. And delegates look at that and made their choices. “In politics, you also have consensus building. Even before the convention, you had geopolitical zones and states endorsing candidates. So if a zone is endorsing a particular candidate, they must have consulted with their delegates so they must have arrived at that venue with already a decision as to who to vote for.

South-South leaders have commended the courage and patriotism of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, insisting the country’s ruling party will win the next general election. The leaders also came down hard on the suspended national deputy publicity secretary of APC, Mr. Timi Frank. The leaders said, “It is sad to note that rather than addressing the cogent issues raised by Oyegun, Timi Frank chose to attack the national chairman of the ruling party for his sincere views about the chances of APC in 2019 and the defection of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar.” Chairman of South-South Front (SSF), Chief John Harry in a statement released in Asaba, berated Timi Frank for pushing the real issues aside and employing sentiments and blackmail to explain the defection of Atiku Abubakar to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). “The people of South-South are solidly behind Chief John Odigie-Oyegun. He has distinguished himself as an honest, competent and God fearing Nigerian.” The leaders expressed surprise at the ignorance of Timi Frank about the intricacies of running a political party in Nigeria. They praised the national chairman for his adherence to internal democracy. “Chief John Odigie-Oyegun deserves a pat on the back for saving the nation’s democracy from anti-democratic forces, steering the party in the right direction, adding value to APC by drawing upon all useful opinions and keeping up with the times as well as allowing the interests of members to guide his actions.” The leaders urged Frank and his sponsors to return to the path of good reason and godliness. “Nobody chased Muhammadu Buhari from ANPP. The truth which Timi Frank knows, but cannot publicly admit is that the former Vice President does not control the structure of the ruling party.”

In a congratulatory letter issued at the weekend, by the state’ s Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr Yemi Olowolabi, on behalf of ” government and people of Ondo State” to the Aare Ona Kakanfo designate, the Aare Ona Kakanfo title was described as “a rare honour bestowed on him by the great monarch, Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi” Gani Adams is an Indigene of Arigidi Akoko in Ondo state. The Ondo government’s mouthpiece said ” I write to convey to you the good wishes of the people and government of Ondo State over your recent appointment as the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yoruba land. “This is a rare honour attesting to your bravery and broad minded commitment to Yoruba nationalism. “You have, in the last two decades, carved a niche for yourself as a courageous advocate of cultural renaissance and a front line defender of the interest of your people,” the letter read in part. It stated further that “having come this far in your career as cultural revivalist and a leader of the famous Oodua Peoples Congress, no one was surprised that you have been so honoured. “It is therefore, our fervent prayers that God will give you the wisdom to succeed in your huge historic task of fostering unity, upholding integrity and development of Oduduwa sons and daughters,” the letter concluded. Recall that the governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, had recently joined the list of prominent Nigerians that have sent goodwill messages to the recently proclaimed 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Otunba Gani Adams.
