1.6M Votes’ Claim: PDP, Atiku In Post-Election Trauma, Depression – APC

The All Progressives Congress, APC, yesterday, launched a blistering attack on the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its  presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, describing their claim of having won last month’s presidential poll as the hallucinatory outcome of a post-election depression.

The APC’s claim was backed by the Muhammadu Buhari Presidential Campaign Organisation, which also charged the PDP of being steeped in post-election trauma.

 The claims were, however, robustly rebuffed by the PDP which accused President Buhari of standing on a stolen mandate even as the party affirmed that it was the clear winner in the six states where run-off governorship elections are to be conducted this weekend.


The APC’s attack on the PDP followed revelations in the court affidavit attached to Atiku’s petition at the Presidential Election Tribunal where it was deposed that the PDP candidate won the election by 1.6 million votes.

The PDP had claimed that the figure could be verified by data in custody of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC. Responding to the claim yesterday, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, the APC said: “Following the outcome of the Presidential election, during which a vast majority of Nigerians reaffirmed their unshaken belief in President Buhari to continue to steer the affairs of the country for another four years, we have watched in disbelief and utter amusement how the opposition PDP and its Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, have engaged in series of circus shows to cheer up their crestfallen and disillusioned members.

The assertions of the APC were backed up by the Buhari Campaign which speaking through its spokesman, Mr. Festus Keyamo said: “It is contradictory to their earlier claim that they needed access to INEC server and data base but given that the court refused their plea the big question is that where did they get this phantom figure from? “The PDP did not have a Plan B and their plan was to rig the election. They should learn to move on from this post-election trauma and prepare for 2023. Just as they never recovered “They should not be trapped in this trauma, because these figures can only be coming from a mind that is hallucinating.”

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
