Keyamo Certain PDP Not A Threat To Buhari’s Re-election

Spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo on Thursday says, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is not a threat in the 2019 elections.

He made the claim during the inauguration of the Women and Youths Wing of the APC Presidential Campaign Team in Abuja as he said, that the PDP would never serve as a threat to the re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari.

However, he called on APC supporters to intensify efforts towards ensuring that the party recorded massive victory at the polls.

“They are no longer a threat to President Muhammadu Buhari because their effort is collapsing.  They have more than four hundred groups but the groups are now dropping on a weekly basis.

“ It clearly shows that they cannot function without public funds and they discovered that it is no longer business as usual,” he said.

The opposition party has been disseminating false information to tarnish the image of President Buhari which would not help them at the polls, Keyamo said.

Assange Extradition Hearing Gets Under Way In London

A London court has begun hearing arguments in the extradition hearings against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

The hearing will last for about a week, with proceedings expected to resume in may for an additional three weeks.

A US grand jury indicted Assange last May with 17 counts under the US espionage act and one count of computer hacking. As each of the 17 counts carries a maximum sentence of 10 years, he could face a total of 175 years’ in jail should he be brought to stand trial across the Atlantic.
