PDP: Jonathan Leads Reconciliation Team, Wike, Secondus Visit George

Former President Goodluck Jonathan, on Monday, in Abuja, began a subtle move to douse tension generated among members of the Peoples Democratic Party over the outcome of last Saturday’s national convention in Abuja.


The former President assembled a team of his loyalists, who it was gathered, would visit aggrieved aspirants with a view to appealling to them to forget about their grievances and work with the Uche Secondus-led members of the National Working Committee.



Though the party has a standing committee on reconciliation, headed by the Governor of Bayelsa State, Seriake Dickson, it was gathered that the former President decided to assemble his team as the Leader of the party.

Among those in Jonathan’s team are his former Minister of Special Duties, Tanimu Turaki (SAN); a former Minister of State for Finance, Amb. Bashir Yuguda; a former Minister of Finance, Nanadi Usman; and his (Jonathan’s) bosom friend, King Turner.

Supreme Court allows Trump travel ban to take full effect

The Supreme Court Monday ruled that US President Trump's immigration travel ban against six countries,Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and Chad, can take full effect while legal challenges against the latest version are been contested in court.
The high court's similar orders in two challenges to the ban mean that most travelers from these six countries cannot enter the United States while the cases are ongoing.. Lower courts had exempted more travelers who they said had "bona fide" connections to the United States, such as the grandparents and in-laws of citizens. Those exemptions mirrored ones designed by the Supreme Court in June, when the justices allowed only part of an earlier, temporary travel ban. The new ban, issued in September, is of indefinite length.

'Wike says he doesn't have money to pay scholarship for students abroad but he has money to buy 16 Land-cruisers for Rivers lawmakers' Deji Adeyanju

Deji Adeyanju who is a staunch member of PDP took to his twitter handle to react to the news of Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, presenting brand new SUVs to 16 members of the Nigerian Senate and House of Representatives that are from the state. Wike while presenting the cars, said the vehicles are to help the lawmakers carry out their duties effectively.
