PDP agent names APC officials allegedly involved in electoral fraud

A local government collation officer for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the presidential election, on Tuesday, named two agents of the ruling All Progressives Congress whom he accused of voting for others at the election.
The collation officer, Abubakar Abdullahi, said the agents are Isah Haliru and Ibrahim Mukhtar.
Mr Abdullahi was speaking during his cross-examination at the continuation of hearings of the PDP’s petition against the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to the witness, agents of Mr Buhari’s APC at the polling unit where he supervised elections in Yobe State voted on behalf of the voters at the elections.
He added that APC electoral officers brought thugs who intimidated and harassed them during the elections.
“We tried to stop the APC agents, security officers and myself, from voting for the voters. The APC ward councillor brought more than 10 people to harass me but I was saved by some elderly men in the village.”
Mr Abdullahi said he reported the matter to security agents at the polling unit.
He added during further cross-examination that the APC agents were arrested, though they were never prosecuted.
Mr Abdullahi said the incidence of electoral fraud at his polling unit was so grievous that he decided not to sign his copy of the result sheet, the form EC8C.
This allegation amongst others intends to strengthen the PDP’s point that the February 23 elections were marred by widespread irregularities, a constitutional basis for the nullification of elections in Nigeria.

Vanguard News Nigeria

….charges members on obedience to leadership

THE General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Kumuyi, Saturday, maintained that the church will not be handed over to ‘rascals’ who are not portraying the image of Christ in their character.

Kumuyi made the declaration via a satellite broadcast from headquarters of the church in Lagos, while teaching on the topic, ‘Fear Not: The Promise Is Still Good’ during the Faith Clinic session at the ongoing Deeper Life National December Retreat, holding at the Deeper Life Conference Centre (DLCC), which started on Friday, December 21 and ends December 25.

He said: “We are not going to hand the church over to rascals, over to rebellious people that want to scatter everything that is good that the Lord is doing. If you …
