APC may lose Ondo election over internal crisis – Alasoadura

Image result for APCReports reaching us have it that All Progressives Congress governorship aspirant in Ondo State, Sen. Tayo Alasoadura, has said the party may lose the forthcoming governorship election if its leadership does not resolve the crisis in the state chapter.

23 governorship aspirants in the party will participate in the party primary scheduled for Sept. 3, ahead of the Nov. 26 governorship election.

Alasoadura, representing Ondo Central in the Senate, on Monday appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari and the leadership of APC to urgently resolve the disaffection amongst party members in the state over allegation of imposition of one of the aspirants as party’s candidate.

Alasoadura, who was the state Commissioner for Finance between 2003 and 2009, said he was not impressed with the high level of disaffection among party members in the state.

He said, “I am just praying that God will use his key to open the gate of victory for APC in the Nov. 26 governorship election.

“With the level of discord in the party today, it will be very difficult for our party to win the governorship election because the discord is so deep rooted and unless we are careful it will affect the party’s chances.

“I am appealing to President Muhammadu Buhari, who is the leader of APC, and the party’s leadership that is worried about what is happening in Ondo State, to urgently resolve the crisis in the state chapter over alleged imposition.

“Ondo State is too strategic in the South West to be lost by APC.

“Eventually, if Ondo State is lost, that means no progress has been made under the current regime to ensure that the South West states feel the impact of being part of the government at the centre.’’

Alasoadura urged the delegates to pick somebody that would be independent minded and who would have the interest of the state at heart.

“Let the delegates choose somebody who has the capacity to re-engineer the economy of the state and can win election for the party.”

Alasoadura, who decried “godfatherism and money politics’’, said that he was not bothered by imposition or endorsement of candidate by any leader of the party.

“The introduction of godfatherism and money politics do not give room for quality people to be at the helm of affairs.”

Airport worker dies after sex with girlfriend

According to Punch, it has been reported that a clearing agent, Mr. Sikiru Olanrewaju, has lost his life after leaving his wife and children at home to have fun with his girlfriend in the Abule Egba area of Lagos State.

It was  learnt that 37-year-old Olanrewaju died shortly after having rounds of sex with his lover on Surulere Street.

The lover was said to have raised the alarm which drew the attention of residents, including the landlady, who reported at the Oke-Odo Police Division.

The victim’s corpse was deposited in a morgue pending the conclusion of investigations.

A resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the deceased worked with an aviation company at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja.

He said, “The man was married, but he had a girlfriend who lived in Abule Egba. On August 23, he had finished from work when he called her on the telephone that he would be sleeping at her place.

“The girlfriend said she told him not to come because he was married, but he insisted on passing the night at her house.

“The lady said when he got to her place, they ate the same food and drank the same water. They had sex, after which they slept.

“She said around 5am, she woke up to go to work and discovered he was stiff. She said she tried hard to wake him up, but he didn’t respond. She said she was too confused to know what to do and waited for about three hours before raising the alarm, which drew the attention of people, including the landlady.”

The resident said the landlady reported at the station, and was followed by some operatives to the apartment where the incident happened.

PUNCH Metro was told that there was no mark of violence on the victim.

A  source said Olanrewaju’s family were immediately contacted and the police broke the news to them.

She said, “The family said they don’t want the police to investigate anything. They said they had received the news in good faith and that the corpse should be released for burial in accordance with Islamic rites.  I am not sure his wife has been informed because she did not follow them to the station. But obviously, she will not receive the news well.”

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incident, adding that investigations were ongoing.

She said, “The man was allegedly found dead in a room in the Abule Egba area after spending the night with his girlfriend.  A team of police detectives from the Oke-Odo Police Division visited, examined, and photographed the scene. We discovered that there was no trace of violence on the body. The corpse has been deposited in a morgue.”
