Reason Why Bayelsa APC suspends ex-Governor Timipre Sylva

The crisis in the Bayelsa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress deepened on Saturday, with the party announcing the indefinite suspension of its governorship candidate in the December 5 election, Timipre Sylva, and four others for alleged anti-party conducts and other reasons.

The four are Joseph Fafi, the party’s senatorial vice chairman central zone; Fortune Panebi, publicity secretary; Tonye Okio, organizing secretary; and Edison Sogwe – for allegedly conniving with Mr. Sylva, a former governor of the state, to destabilize the party.

A statement jointly signed by the APC chairman in the state, Timipa Orunimighe and secretary, Daniel Marlin, said the decision to suspend the five was taken at an emergency state executive meeting of the party after due consultations with its senior officials and elders in the state.

OPINION: "We are the demon killing our fellow Nigerians" - Damilola Ayodele

I have kept my pen peace for too long from the happening in this country, and I am beginning to lose my senses in the wickedness of us as a people whence we haul the blame on the government-by the way, Who is the Government? We poison our streams and ask the Government to give us borehole; we forget swiftly that we decide the fate of this country not APC nor PDP nor Buhari nor The Senate nor House of Representative nor Governors; but we the citizens hold the mantle to drive home the vehicle of our nation to the promise land...

I will forgive the driver that took me from Ibadan to Akure at a price more than I should have paid on a normal day because of fuel scarcity; I should have stayed within my city. But I was confused when a cab said I should pay 30Naira for what used to be 20Naira for less than 6km distance; little did I know that I wasn't well informed and educated yet about what is happening. I had a restful sleep and set to go to my beautiful 'Oja Oba' and I was told the fare is not 100naira from what used to be 50naira, Whaaaaaaaaaaaattttt??? I couldn't hold my civility as I screamed in the cab. "Why?" was the response my impulse could reproduce. Everybody looked at me like am an alien from an unknown planet-let me keep the story anyways...

White House under fire for editing video of French president's speech

The Obama administration is under fire for briefly censoring a portion of video footage in which French president Francois Hollande uttered the phrase 'Islamist terrorism' – a pairing of words that the president has consistently cut out of its homeland security lexicon.

Calling the omission the result of 'a technical issue with the audio,' a red-faced White House re-posted an unedited version of the footage late on Friday.

Hollande's remarks Thursday in Washington, following a bilateral meeting with President Barack Obama, urged continued cooperation between European nations and the United States to fight what the White House refers to as 'violent extremism.'

'But we're also well aware that the roots of terrorism – Islamist terrorism – are in Syria and in Iraq,' Hollande said, according to the official translation. 'We therefore have to act both in Syria and in Iraq, and this is what we're doing within the framework of the coalition.'
