Oil price steadied below a three-and-half year highs yesterday as resistance emerged in Europe and Asia to United States sanctions against major crude exporter, Iran. This is even as rising US drilling pointed to higher North American production. Brent crude was up 20 cents at 77.32 dollars a barrel by 1315 GMT and US light crude rose 10 cents to 70.80 dollars. Both oil futures contracts hit their highest since November 2014 last week at 78 dollars and 71.89 dollars a barrel respectively, as markets anticipated a sharp fall in Iranian crude supply once US sanctions bite later this year. It is unclear how hard US sanctions will hit Iran’s oil industry. A lot will depend on how other major oil consumers respond to Washington’s action against Tehran, which will take effect in November. China, France, Russia, Britain, Germany and Iran all remain in the nuclear accord that placed controls on Iran’s nuclear programme and led to a relaxation of economic sanctions against Iran and companies doing business there. The surge in oil prices comes at a time of tight supply amid record Asian demand and voluntary output restraint by the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and non-OPEC producers, including Russia. Brent and WTI last week reached their highest since November 2014 at $78 and $71.89 per barrel respectively. Greg McKenna, chief market strategist at futures brokerage AxiTrader, said, “Around a million barrels of oil a day is likely to disappear from global oil markets if the US sanctions on Iran bite. But it is still far from certain that they will bite in the way intended.

The seven day-ultimatum given President Muhammadu Buhari and the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) by the defunct new Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP) has led to the emergence of a splinter group within the power bloc. Last week, Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje had led some members of the nPDP, one of the power blocs that fused into the APC before the 2015 general election, to the APC national headquarters in Abuja where they expressed their grievances to the party’s leadership. They gave the party’s leadership a seven day-ultimatum, which expires today, to convene an emergency meeting to address their grievances, including alleged maltreatment of its member by the presidency and the party. But in a dramatic turn of event, another delegation of the nPDP led by Senator Abdullahi Adamu stormed the party’s national secretariat yesterday where they distanced themselves from the position of the Baraje-led nPDP. Senator Adamu, while addressing journalists at the APC national secretariat, said the nPDP has not met since 2014 and as such the Baraje-led group couldn’t have been speaking for the nPDP as a whole since they did not consult with anyone. In a letter signed by the group’s chairman, Senator Adamu; deputy chairman, Chief Theodore Geogewill and secretary, Hon Abdulmumin Jibrin, the splinter group punctured all the points raised by the Baraje-bloc. In the letter, which was also copied to President Muhammadu Buhari and a leader of the party, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Senator Adamu-led faction of the nPDP reaffirmed their support and confidence in the APC and President Buhari, saying they do not in any way feel marginalised or maltreated. The letter obtained by LEADERSHIP noted: “We ordinarily would have ignored such a joke but it is a dangerous joke taken too far. How can you explain that one of the two signatories to the letter, Col Olagunsoye Oyinlola (rtd) has since left the APC for the African Democratic Party (ADP) after going on AWOL to the Obasanjo Coalition for Nigeria?
