Late Senator  Isiaka Adeleke  who was uncle to talented Nigeria song writer, singer and performer, David Adeleke also known as Davido died recently. All Progressives Congress (APC) the political party Adeleke came out from has nominated Senator Mudasiru Hussein to contest the party’s primaries for Osun West Senatorial District’s seat today in order to occupy the vacuum.

If he wins the primaries and the main election coming up next month , he will replace late Adeleke in Abuja. 

However, the National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday cleared Senator Mudasiru Hussein to contest the party’s primaries for Osun West Senatorial District’s seat today.
This followed the meeting of the NWC in Abuja, which reviewed the decision of the Appeal Panel, dismissing Hussein’s appeal on Sunday.
By the regulation of the party, the decision of the NWC is final.
“Therefore, delegates for the APC West Senatorial District’s primaries are to proceed to the designated centre for the exercise on Tuesday (today),” the NWC said last night.

The Appeal Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Osun West Senatorial District’s July 8 by-election has upheld the disqualification of Senator Mudashiru Hussain by the party’s five-man Election/Screening Committee.

On Sunday, the committee, led by Zamfara State House of Assembly Speaker Sanusi Rikiji, said Hussain was disqualified because he failed to tender his resignation letter as a serving commissioner within 30 days before the expression of his interest to contest for the senatorial seat.

Hussain challenged the panel’s decision at the party’s Appeal Committee but failed to stop his disqualification.

The Appeal Committee, led by Abdullahi Bello, noted that after going through the report of the Election/Screening Committee, “it did not find it difficult to assume the following questions:

  • “Whether the petitioner (Hussain) resigned within 30 days, as envisaged by law;
  • “Whether the petitioner’s resignation letter, as attached during the defence of his letter dated June 6, complied with the 30 days, as required by law, and
  • “Whether the Screening Committee was right by disqualifying the petitioner, based on his status as an appointed serving commissioner in Osun State.”

According to the Appeal Committee, issues during the screening bordered on law and the provision of the constitution.

It said failure of this was weighty and cannot be dismissed.

The committee said: “During the petitioner’s appearance before this committee, he confessed that his nomination form did not satisfy the full requirements of a legal document which could stand him for election.

“An objective view of the petitioner’s nomination form for his primary election was not duly sworn to before a Magistrate or a Notary Public and his failure to do this constitutes an incurable defect.

“The purpose for which a party’s nomination form is procured is to be seen to comply with guidelines and rules of engagement. Thus, it is our view that all its contents must be complied with.

“If the makers of the nomination form believe that the last paragraph of the form of the petitioner is of no value or of consequence, such provision will not have been provided therein. Thus, the failure of the petitioner to submit his nomination form for the purpose of certification and oath before a Magistrate or a Notary Public is fatal to his cause.

“We, therefore, hold that even if the petitioner is not a public officer, as canvassed by him, his resignation letter should have been necessary. Therefore, having resigned on June 6 fell short of the 30 days’ requirements of the law.

“Upon the above considerations, the appeal for reconsideration and reversal as presented by Senator Mudashiru Hussain lack merit and is hereby dismissed. Consequently, the disqualification of Senator Mudsshiru Hussain by the five-man Election/Screening Committee for the Osun West Senatorial District primary election of the APC is hereby upheld.”

Also, the primary election to choose a flagbearer of the APC for the July 8 by-election for Osun West Senatorial seat scheduled to hold yesterday was postponed till today.

A three-man Appeal Team, led by a former deputy governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Abdullahi Bello, on Sunday dismissed an appeal filed by Hussain, one of the two aspirants for the seat.

The chairman of the APC, Prince Gboyega Famodun, urged the party’s delegates from the 10 local government areas of the district to remain calm and prepare for the primary election.

Trending: Davido is stingy and 3 years old baby saga

Image result for davidoAccording to Punch, it was reported that mother of one, Ayomide Labinjo, had alleged that pop singer, Davido, is the father of her three-year-old child, Anuoluwapo.

Ayomide said they would not have been in this paternity mess, “if only Davido had listened to me and worn a condom.”

When asked why she would allow anybody to have unprotected sex with her, Ayomide alleged that the singer was not a fan of wearing condoms during sex as she recounted in details what allegedly transpired the two times she alleged they had sex.

The young lady claimed, “The reason I slept with him the first time we met was because I just wanted to catch my fun. The day we met at the club, Ebevande, I was with my friends, I did not really know him then but I just knew he was an artiste. I went out with my female friends; we had like a ladies night out; then one of his bouncers came to meet me and told me that his boss wanted to see me. I actually thought it was the owner of the club that wanted to see me. When I got to where they were, I noticed that it was David and he was with B. Red. I greeted both of them, B. Red did not respond but David did and we talked. He collected my pin and asked me to return to my seat. When they were about to leave, the bouncer came to meet me again and informed me that they wanted to leave. My friends thought we were all going together but when we all got to the car, he asked my friends to go back. He said that I was the one he wanted to see.

“We went to the Genesis Hotel. When we got to the room, we talked for a long while before we had sex. He is a very jovial person and he loves talking. He made me laugh a lot and we talked at length. B. Red was in the other room. I insisted that he should protect himself by wearing a condom before sex but he refused. He said that he does HIV test every two weeks. Then I asked him how sure he was that I did not have any disease but he said he was very sure I did not have a disease. After he had said all that, I told him to just do what he wanted to do and allow me go home in the morning. That night, he had sex with me twice. You would know he was in the mood to have sex that night and it lasted for a while. He has a big manhood and it hurt me a little. The second time was when he noticed I was leaving in the morning and he just wanted to have sex with me again.

“The second time, the sex did not last long because he was very tired and he did not even know when I left the hotel. I do not drink or smoke but David drinks and smokes. He drank and smoked in the club” she alleged.

Labinjo told Saturday Beats that she was shocked that Davido said he gave her money as she claimed she had never received a dime from the singer since they met. In her words, she described the self-acclaimed Omo Baba Olowo as “a very stingy person.”

“I saw where he said he sent money to my family and that is a lie. The question I would ask is that what account did he pay the money into? He should bring out the bank teller. He has never given me money. If they said they have given me money, there would be a record or evidence and they should bring it out. Even when we had sex, he never gave me money for transport. David is a very stingy person and I would not be the first person saying this. I have heard it from different girls, David is very stingy,” she said.

When asked if she was certain that the pop star is the father of her child, she answered in the affirmative. She claimed as of the time they met, she did not have a boyfriend and she is not one to jump from one bed to another.

Labinjo said, “I am very sure he is the father of my child because I did not have a boyfriend when we met. I had some male friends but it was just a platonic relationship I had with them and nothing serious. I don’t jump from one bed to another and that is why I am very bold and certain that he is the father of my child. If I had been sleeping around, I would not be that bold to talk.”

She was quick to add that all she wanted was for the singer to step forward for another DNA test. Labinjo said that even if the result shows that Davido is the father of her child, she doubts mutual love would co-exist between them because of the way he has treated her all these years.

The mother of one also hinted that the matter may soon be taken to court.

“I just want him to take up his responsibility but I heard he is not ready for another DNA. My mother has gone to a lawyer and we would eventually go to court because I know we have a good case. I was told that even if David does not want to step out for a DNA, any of his siblings could step in for him. Once everything is settled, I just want him to take care of his daughter but there cannot be mutual love between us. Even the way he talks to me cannot allow for mutual love,” she said.

Meanwhile, in a chat with Sunday Punch, Davido’s manager, Asa Asika, had reportedly said, “Davido is not the father of the baby.”

When asked if the singer would be willing to undergo another DNA test, he retorted, “He is not going for another DNA test. After all, a test was conducted and it turned out negative. DNA tests are never wrong. Davido had never met her before she showed up at his house claiming that he is the father of her child. She is just an opportunist looking for quick money and fame.Image result for Ayomide Labinjo
