I’ll End Saraki, Tinubu’s Rift, Kalu Says

Former governor of Abia State and Senator-elect (Abia North), Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu has promised to reconcile Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Fielding questions from journalists in Johannesburg during the endorsement of the African National Congress (ANC) on Tuesday, Kalu promised to intervene in the rift, noting that politics should not cause disharmony between friends and family.

He appealed to the duo to sheathe  their swords in the interest of Nigeria’s nascent democracy.

“I am unhappy over the exchange of words between my dear brothers,  Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

“The duo of Saraki and Tinubu have contributed immensely to nation building in different capacities.

“ Having known the duo of Saraki and Tinubu for decades, I am not comfortable with the media war. As a mutual friend to both parties, it is my responsibility to intervene in the rift for the sake of friendship.”

Kalu, while acknowledging the enormous contributions of Saraki and Tinubu to the political development of nation, recalled the age-long and close relationships between the former governors of Kwara and Lagos states.

He advised the media to be cautious and professional in reporting sensitive national issues, adding that the political class should not endanger the polity.

“ We cannot watch these accomplished and celebrated Nigerians allow politics to cause disaffection between them.

“Many years ago, I settled the rift between President Muhammadu Buhari and General Ibrahim Babangida, Chief Odimegwu Ojukwu and Dr. Alex Ekwueme and many others. Saraki and Tinubu will settle their differences in no distant time.”

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.
