APC Convention: Intrigues As 160 Candidates Battle For 29 Seats
Sat, 23 Jun 2018

Political intrigues, manoeuvrings and horse-trading will dominate today’s elective national convention of the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) as about 160 candidates slug it out for 29 seats in the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) holding at the Eagle Square, Abuja.

However, aspirants for 21 NWC positions do not have challengers and will, therefore, be returned unopposed.
Party sources confided in LEADERSHIP Weekend that while the state governors of the party readily sacrificed former national party chairman, Chief John Oyegun, and conceded the position of chairman to the president’s choice candidate and former Edo State governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, they are, however, not keen to concede the positions of party secretary and party organising secretary, which the president is said to be interested in having certain candidates occupy.

They contend that doing so would concentrate all the powers in the party in the hands of the president and such a scenario would not bode well for balance of power in the party ahead of the 2019 general election.

Consequently, three aspirants will today face each other for the post of national secretary. They are the incumbent, Mai Mala Buni, formerly of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) who is believed to be favoured by the president; Waziri Bulama, formerly of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), and Abdulrahaman Terab.

Of the about 160 aspirants, 17 are from the South East alone and they are contesting for the three NWC positions of national vice chairman, national organising secretary and national auditor.
The aspirants for the organising secretary include the incumbent, Senator Osita Izunaso (supported by South East caucus), Emma Ibediro (backed by Governor Rochas Okorocha), Chidi Nwogu (from the Okadigbo Rainbow Coalition) and Longinus Anyanwu (from the anti-Okorocha group).
For the position of national publicity secretary, the incumbent, Bolaji Abdulahi, will slug it out with two challengers, Lanre Issa Onilu and Abu Sidik Meseko.
Contestants for the national women leader position are the incumbent, Ramatu Aliyu, and Salmatu Bawa, who is said to has the backing of the Kogi State governor.
Meanwhile, the party seems set for its first and all-important elective convention.

To forestall any unforeseen circumstances, security agencies have shut down the venue of the convention for security reasons even as all access routes to the venue have been cordoned off.

Ologbondiyan stated that the 2-0 victory over Iceland showcased the triumph of the Nigerian resilient spirit against all odds.

The victory puts Nigeria in second place, two points ahead of Iceland and Argentina ahead of the crucial final Group D game against Lionel Messi-led Argentina. Musa, who is back in the books of Leicester City in the English Premiership League after a loan spell at this former club, CSKA Moscow in Russia, found the net twice in the second half to push Nigeria into second place above Iceland and Argentina, whom Nigeria will play in the final group match with a spot in the knockout stage on the line.

North, South Korea Agree On Dates For For Family Reunions
Sat, 23 Jun 2018

Officials from North and South Korea have agreed to arrange reunions for families separated by the Korean War from August 20 to August 26, South Korea’s Ministry of Unification has said. The agreement was announced in a joint statement on Friday after delegations from the two Koreas held talks as part of the agreement reached at April’s Inter-Korean summit when North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in agreed to resume family reunions. South Korean news agency Yonhap reported the reunions would take place at Mount Kumgang in North Korea and that 100 families from both sides would be allowed to participate in the event. Seoul hopes Singapore summit could lead to peace with North Korea. The South Korean delegation yesterday was led by Park Kyung-seo, head of the Korean Red Cross, and North Korea was led by Pak Yong-il, vice chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland. Ahead of the talks, South Korea expressed hope the talks would make possible regular contact between families long divided by the border. Broadcaster KBS reported that Seoul’s delegation was planning to propose postal contact and hometown visits as potential measures. Park, head of the South’s delegation, called for each side to work together to make the meeting a success by holding the talks “from a humanitarian perspective”. According to Yonhap news agency, the number of South Koreans seeking to meet their loved ones in the North totaled 132,124 as of end-May, of which only about 57,000 remain alive. An estimated 86 percent of those individuals are in their 70s and older.
