Ondo APC LG primaries: PDP accuses Akeredolu of using Amotekun operatives

first_imgRelatedPosts Edo 2020: Makinde congratulates Obaseki, commends Wike-led campaign council Edo governorship election a huge relief, says Ekweremadu Obaseki’s win renews our 2023 determination to win Lagos — PDP The Peoples Democratic Party in Ondo State has accused Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of using the personnel of Operation Amotekun to scuttle the All Progressives Congress chairmanship primaries in Owo Local Government Area. This was contained in a statement made available to newsmen in Akure on Saturday by the party’s Director of Media and Publicity, Zadok Akintoye. However, in a swift reaction, the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media, Ojo Oyewamide, described the allegation as false. He said the PDP was “very unkind and mindless” to have alluded to the use of Operation Amotekun that had yet to take off by the APC to scuttle its own chairmanship primaries. Oyewamide said: “With this, you can easily identify lazy set of Nigerians, with due respect to our President, Muhammadu Buhari. “This is lazy opposition at work. “How can an opposition party be so busy and concerned with an issue that does not affect it to the extent of hatching a media spin to depict an imaginary picture of the use of Operation Amotekun by the governor to scuttle the chairmanship primaries? “It is pertinent to reiterate that Governor Akeredolu had, weeks before the exercise, pointedly told APC stakeholders that he would neither impose nor interfere in the process that was intended to produce candidates for the forthcoming local government election in the state.” The PDP alleged that the just-concluded APC chairmanship primaries in Owo was scuttled due to the rejection of the governor’s anointed candidate by the majority of party members in the council area. It said: “PDP, as a big and popular party in the state, is deeply concerned over the alleged use of Amotekun to scuttle the party primaries in Owo local government, as witnessed by members of the APC who reported this. “Such an action, if true, spells huge danger for the South-West and our collective desire to ensure that we have a security system that protects our people without political affiliation and partisan inclinations.” The PDP spokesman called on the South West governors to immediately probe the deployment of regional security operatives in an election matter. He said: “We also will like to demand an immediate investigation into the deployment of these operatives and demand that those involved in this act be fired and prosecuted accordingly. “We put the Akeredolu-led APC government on notice that any deployment of Amotekun operatives in any election will be the beginning of the failure of that widely-accepted initiative and it shall be on record for future generations to judge. “As a party, we will not fold our arms in the desire to ensure that our democracy succeeds and will resist any attempt by Akeredolu and his party to scuttle what we have tirelessly worked for. “We also demand that the Development Agenda for Western Nigeria Commission explain to the citizens of the South-West why Amotekun operatives were allowed to be deployed by the Ondo State APC without recourse to the laid down procedures. “The commission should also be deeply concerned that this allegation seemingly justifies the rumor that the APC in Ondo state has been recruiting its party members and apologists into this security initiative for a clandestine purpose, as seen in this Owo episode.”Tags: AkureAmotekunOwo LGAPDPRotimi AkeredoluZadok Akintoyelast_img read more

Hammers sign Cresswell

first_imgWest Ham have signed of defender Aaron Cresswell from Ipswich on a five-year contract. Press Association The 24-year-old left-back joins the Hammers as manager Sam Allardyce looks to further boost his defensive options, with a move for Norwich’s Martin Olsson now believed to be dead in the water. A statement issued through West Ham’s official Twitter account: “We are delighted to announce the signing of highly-rated left-back Aaron Cresswell on a five-year deal from Ipswich Town.” center_img Cresswell impressed in recent years at Portman Road, missing just four league games over the course of the last two seasons for the Sky Bet Championship club. Having started his career at Tranmere, Cresswell moved to Ipswich in 2011 and after completing his move to West Ham he will experience Barclays Premier League football for the first time in his career. The news comes on the day West Ham’s current crop returned for pre-season training, where Allardyce posed for pictures with his two summer recruits to date – striker Mauro Zarate and defensive midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate. Having finished 13th in the league last season, Allardyce has been assured of his position by club owners David Sullivan and David Gold after a minority of Hammers fans began to vent their frustrations at the perceived negative tactics of the former Bolton and Newcastle boss. With 14 clean sheets in the Premier League, West Ham’s survival was based on a sound defensive unit but Allardyce has been keen to add to his numbers at the back, with Cresswell becoming his third addition ahead of the forthcoming campaign. last_img read more

Baxter Deploys Mobara to Checkmate Ahmed Musa

first_imgFemi Solaja with agency reportSouth Africa coach, Stuart Baxter, is not leaving anything to chance in his quest to beat Nigeria again during Saturday’s AFCON 2019 qualifier in Uyo.Already, he has assigned one Abbubaker Mobara to man the team’s right rear guard position of Bafana Bafana and perhaps check any incursion from Leicester City striker, Ahmed Musa, who is likely to operate from the left side of Super Eagles attack on Saturday.Although Mobara’s traditional position is the central defence which he mans for Orlando Pirates, Baxter is reported to be impressed with Mobara’s performances against Brazil at right-back for the under-23s at last year’s Olympics in Rio. Mobara, who made 26 appearances in all competitions for Orlando Pirates, has even contributed with some goals as a midfielder, scoring two in the Nedbank Cup.According to the coach, “I like Mobara as a player. I tried to sign him at one stage. I like him as a defender. I think in the PSL he can equip himself well in midfield.“My spin on it is if he is going to be competing for a place, he has a better chance possibly as a full back and in an emergency at centre back,” said Baxter.“I saw him play against Brazil in the Olympics and he played well against Neymar. His one-versus-one defending was excellent.“His calmness on the ball when he got into the opponent’s half was also good, so I see him competing for a place there.”Should Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr decides to field the Musa in that position on Saturday, the Leicester City forward, whose equaliser against Argentina in the 1-2 loss at the last World Cup in Brazil was rated as one of the best goals of the tournament, will have Mobara to cope with in the opening Group B match of the qualifying series.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

We have to frustrate him, be harder around the net,” Hertl said. “If you don’t have to chase the game from the first minute, and you take all 20 guys with a great effort, we showed that we can beat them anytime.”Hertl is coming off of a career year in which he scored 35 goals while adding 39 assists for 74 points on the season.He has been a key to the team’s power play and success throughout the season and he knows what types of runs this team can go on.
