PDP crisis

PDP crisis
A ruling of the Court of Appeal expected to be delivered on Tuesday afternoon has been suspended.
Court officials told journalists at the court premises that the ruling was suspended following a petition against the judges accusing them of bias.
No new date has been fixed for the ruling.

Two factions of the party led by former Kaduna State governor, Ahmed Makarfi, and former Borno State governor, Ali Sheriff, have for months battled in court over the leadership of the PDP.
As part of that battle, the faction led by Mr. Makarfi had approached the Appeal Court to seek nullification of previous decisions by a Federal High Court presided over by Okon Abang which has affected that faction’s candidate for the November 26 election in Ondo state.
Mr. Abang had on October14 given an order in furtherance of his June 29 decision where he had asked the Independent National Electoral commission, INEC, to recognise the faction led by Mr. Sheriff.

In his October 14 ruling, Mr. Abang nullified the listing by INEC of the candidate of Mr. Makarfi’s faction, Eyitayo Jegede, for the Ondo state governorship election.
The judge said the decision was premised on his June 29 judgement where his court declared as null and void the proceedings of the PDP convention which appointed a caretaker committee with Mr. Makarfi as chairman
Shortly after that decision, the Makarfi caretaker committee approached the appellate court to demand a stay of execution of Mr. Abang’s October 14 decision.
At that time, Mr. Jegede had been recognised by INEC as the party’s flag bearer and the supporters of the Makarfi-led faction said the status quo should be maintained, pending the determination of their appeal at the appellate court.

Mr. Jegede also approached Mr. Abang’s court, according to the rules of the Federal High Court, to seek his permission to appeal the October 14 judgement. That appeal was denied by Mr. Abang on October 27.
During his ruling on Mr. Jegede’s application, Mr. Abang reiterated his decision that Mr. Ibrahim remains the authentic candidate for the PDP in the coming election of Ondo State.
In deference to the October 27 decision of the Federal High Court, INEC withdrew its recognition of Mr. Jegede and had him replaced by Mr. Ibrahim.
Consequently Mr. Jegede and other members of the party from Mr. Makarfi’s faction made further appeals to the Appeal Court demanding that it strikes out the June 29 ruling by the Federal High Court as well as that of October 14.
No new date has been fixed for the Court of Appeal ruling.
INEC had said Mr. Ibrahim would remain the candidate of the party in Ondo until a ruling of the appeal court.



Nigerians have been warned by the Central bank of Nigeria from patroinsing one of Ponzi scheme company, MMM federal Republic of Nigeria.
During the warning, the apex bank stated that the scheme was fraudulent, not registered, not regulated and not in accordance with any known business model describing it as a ‘wonder bank’
Speaking during a mentoring program for students of Government Secondary School, Suleja, the head of the consumer protection department of the CBN Kadija Kassim said the activities of the scheme is not regulated by any institution.
Kassim referring to the scheme as ‘wonder bank’ cautioned Nigerians on patronizing activities of the MMM scheme which stands for Mavrodi Mondial Moneybox.
A lot of Nigerians are already lured into doing business with the scheme which pays interests of about 30% of every investor.

“We have heard about the activities of MMM, but I want to warn you against it because they are wonder banks that are not regulated. Desist from their activities because they are fraudulent,” Kassim said.
Speaking on the theme of the year’s world savings day: “Don’t save what is left after spending, but spend what is left after saving”, Kassim said such approach would assist in the needed awareness for savings.

“The World Savings Day is a tradition created with the objective of stressing the importance of savings for modern economies and individuals alike. “The primary objective is to increase awareness on financial literacy among various segments of the general public to sensitize them to the importance of saving, earning a livelihood, inculcating a savings habit, and generating employment and entrepreneurship for personal and national development,” she said.
But some Nigerians have reacted to this call by the CBN insisting they will continue with the scheme.
What is your opinion? have you benefited from them before? What was your experience like?
