An Ogun State governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Dapo Abiodun, has challenged the desire of the State Governor Ibikunle Amosun, to have his successor come from the west senatorial district of the state through a zoning arrangement.
The decision according to Amosun was based on the fact that the Ogun west senatorial district has not produced a governor for the state since its creation from the old western region, 44 years ago.
While addressing journalists in Iperu on Friday, Abiodun described the arrangement as unconstitutional
He, therefore, appealed to the governor to give all aspiring candidates in the state a level playing ground that would produce candidates with pedigree and a high sense of responsibility.

Again, Fashola blames DISCOS for poor power supply

Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola (SAN) (right); Federal Controller, Works, Lagos, Adedamola Kuti and General Manager, Arab Contractors Nigeria Limited, Wael Salem, during the kick-off of rehabilitation of Ikorodu-Sagamu Road in Lagos… yesterday.
Nigeria’s minister for power, works and housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola, on Friday said electricity distribution companies are responsible for poor power supply in the country.
The minister who spoke during an interactive session with members of the public held in Lagos said power generation in the country has increased from 4000 mega watts to 7000 mega watts.
Fashola, a former Lagos state governor explained that government on its part has done all required in ensuring regular power supply across the country.
“Power generation has moved from 4,000mw to 7,000mw. The responsibility of now bringing power to your homes lies now with the Distribution Companies,” Fashola said.
“Let us be clear, all the powers that Government had, as far as the Power value chain, were already decided upon. The privatization was already completed and the only control Government had was as a transporter, in Transmission,”
On other plans of increasing the megawatts, Fashola said power plants across the country are being engineered to increase power generation.
“Azura will give us 459mw, while Kaduna is bringing 215mw, 2 turbines are already being tested. There’s 240mw in Afam and ready to go. If we add these 3, that’s roughly 1,000mw new power generation to the grid,” Fashola said.

Tech: The best-kept secret in smartphones is coming to a US carrier for the...

The most popular smartphone brand that you’ve probably never heard of will be sold by T-Mobile.
The OnePlus 6T will be the first smartphone from OnePlus to be sold by a US carrier.
It could also cost $550, $20 more than the current OnePlus 6.
Despite no previous availability at US carrier stores, OnePlus phones have an incredibly dedicated fanbase that line up around city blocks around the world to buy the newest model.
Availability in T-Mobile stores will surely boost the popularity of OnePlus, as its phones come with lower price tags with the same — or better — performance than competing phones from Apple and Samsung.
The OnePlus 6T, the upcoming smartphone from the small smartphone maker OnePlus, will be sold by T-Mobile when it’s released, according to CNET.
It’ll be the first OnePlus phone to be sold by a US carrier.
That’s a significant move for OnePlus, as most Americans buy their smartphones from their carrier stores rather than directly from the phone maker.
T-Mobile will sell a model of the OnePlus 6T that’s optimized for its network, including a new band that T-Mobile promises will deliver “better and faster” coverage, according to the report.
Otherwise, the regular unlocked models of the OnePlus 6T will continue to be sold from the phone maker itself from popup stores and online as usual, and will be compatible with global networks that use the GSM standard. In the US, that includes AT&T and T-Mobile, but not Verizon and Sprint, which use the CDMA standard.
The OnePlus 6T could cost $550, $20 more than the current OnePlus 6 that costs $530. But the price isn’t finalized, according to CNET.
While OnePlus phones are popular among their fans, chances are that someone wouldn’t know what a “OnePlus” is if you stopped and asked them on the street.
Part of the reason why you might never see a OnePlus phone on the street in the US is because they’ve never been available at carrier stores. Indeed, most Americans still buy their smartphones from their carriers, and a smartphone’s popularity is often dictated by it’s availability at carrier stores. OnePlus phones also aren’t compatible with Verizon, the US carrier with the most subscriptions.
Despite this, OnePlus has an incredibly dedicated fanbase that lines up around city blocks around the world to buy the new model, much like iPhone fans line up to buy the new model. OnePlus phones are one of the only Android phones that gets people to line up.
Fans covet the lower price tags and performance of OnePlus phones, which cost hundreds less than the competition from Apple and Samsung, and sometimes even exceed their performance. OnePlus phones also have excellent design, and they run on a largely unaltered version of the Android operating system that’s especially popular among Android enthusiasts.
When a customer walks into a T-Mobile store to buy a new phone, the OnePlus 6T’s price tag, specs, and design are likely to be a tempting option compared to pricier devices on display.

Saraki must reconvene National Assembly Immediately, says APC

Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Friday called on the Senate president Bukola Saraki to reconvene the National Assembly “immediately” to consider the 2019 general election Budget of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
“The National Assembly must be convened immediately,” APC’s acting national publicity secretary, Mr Yekini Nabena said in a statement.
This is coming weeks after president Muhammadu Buhari’s aide on National Assembly matters Ita Enang urged federal lawmakers to cut short the annual recess in order to attend to urgent national matters including the budget for the 2019 general elections.
The Senate and the House of Representatives proceeded on annual recess on July 24 to reconvene on September 25.
However, Senate committee leader on Power and steel, Eyinnaya Abaribe, Thursday, said the call by Presidency for the Senate to reconvene was “unnecessary” and a bid to blame the Senate.
Nabena, in the statement, said the sanctity of the nation’s electoral system was being threatened by an alleged plot to frustrate the efforts of the Executive, particularly INEC in the run-up to the polls in 2019.
The party also accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Senate leadership of an attempt to hide under the Electoral Act Amendment Bill, in order to draw attention away from the reconvening of the National Assembly.
The party said, “The Electoral Amendment Bill passed by the National Assembly is alive and awaiting assent.”
“However, assent to bills in all democratic governments reflects the prudence and discretion of the President in balancing the powers of key constitutional bodies and understanding the concerns of the executive,” it added.
Recall that, the Senate president Bukola Saraki and Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara on Tuesday said they refused to reconvene the National Assembly because the joint committee on electoral matters has not met with officials of INEC.
INEC on Wednesday presented the budget to the House of Representatives Committee on Electoral Matters and Political Parties Matters.
The APC asked Nigerians to speak up and ensure that the federal lawmakers perform its duties in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution.
It also called on the civil society and international community to condemn the “ongoing travesty and legislative rascality being perpetuated” by some individuals.
The APC expressed confidence that the success recorded so far by the Buhari administration would earn the party the victory it deserved in 2019 general elections.
“The PDP has realised that the 2019 elections have been won and lost. If the election is held today, it is clear that the APC will win by a landslide judging by visible and landmark achievements recorded by the President Buhari administration.

Anxiety as IPOB resumes call for election boycott

…naked female members protest in Owerri
 
 
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Friday resumed the call for election boycott in the Southeast ahead of the 2019 general elections.
The proscribed group insisted on a referendum and sovereign state of Biafra as part of conditions to end the renewed agitation.
It also demanded for the immediate disclosure of the whereabouts of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu and his unconditional release.

During a protest in Owerri, the Imo state capital, Friday, by hundreds of half-naked female IPOB members’ cladded in black attire, the group derided Nigeria as “a failed country that does not hold any prospect for the Igbo”.
The early morning protest grounded vehicular and human movement along major streets in Owerri, while stern looking soldiers and mobile policemen were drafted to strategic locations to forestall breakdown of law and order.
The separatist group vowed to disrupt the 2019 elections across the Southeast, warning that severe punishments will be meted out on those who will betray the renewed struggle for the actualization of the state of Biafra by conniving with “Nigerian agents to conduct election in Igbo land”.
They accused the Southeast governors and Ohaneze Ndigbo, Igbo apex socio-cultural organization of complicity in the unprovoked killing of unarmed Biafra agitators by supporting military operations in the Southeast.
Some of the various placards displayed by the protesting women, had inscriptions such as, ‘no more election in Igbo land, we want Biafra’, ‘Nigeria is a fraud, we need Biafra’, ‘no more elections, we need a referendum’, ‘release Nnamdi Kanu now or face the wrath of God’, ‘we are tired of Nigeria’, among others.
It would be recalled that leader of the group, Kanu, had called for the boycott of the Anambra governorship election in 2017 in defiance to pleas from Ohaneze Ndigbo, religious groups and other influential bodies in the Southeast.
