President Buhari says female lawmakers are a threat to Osinbajo’s VP status
While receiving female lawmakers at the Presidential Villa on Friday, President Muhammadu Buhari said the women were a threat to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s seat.
He made this statement in response to the women’s clamour for equality in political offices. Chairperson of the Nigerian Female Parliamentarians, Elizabeth Ativie, said,”Many African countries have imbibed that culture of twinning and is working – in Rwanda, in South Africa is working and we believe it will work in Nigeria. Where a man is a president we expect that the vice president should be a woman; where a man is speaker, we expect that the deputy speaker should be a woman and vice versa”
President Buhari jokingly retorted, “It’s a pity the vice-president is not here. But I believe the secretary to the government of the federation will tell him that his position is threatened”.
Honourable Jibrin’s suspension nullified by court
Months after resuming his 180 legislative days suspension, Honourable Abdulmumin Jibrin has now been exonerated as the suspension has been nullified by the Federal High Court, Abuja.
Declaring the suspension as “unconstitutional”, the court has ordered the House of Representatives to pay all the salaries due to the senator while he was suspended.
Presiding judge, John Tsoho said, “The suspension was an interruption of his earning which will be automatically restored especially when it has been decided that the action was a nullity by virtue of granting prayers 1 and 3 of the originating summons,”.
According to the court, the suspension never happened.
Today after 20 months of legal battle the FHC presided by justice John Tsoho declared my suspension unconstitutional, null and void and has no effect whatsoever. I thank my constituents, lawyers lead by Femi Falana SAN and Ahmed Raji SAN and every one that supported us.God bless pic.twitter.com/C6ouLS9yp2

Please who can explain President Donald Trump’s behaviour?
This behaviour has us super worried for the United States President state of mind:
President Trump pointed to a window in the White House.
“She’s doing great. She’s looking at us right there.”
Reporters turned to look. There was no sign of the first lady. https://t.co/JxPiSJJuVq

This is the response that sums up how we feel about all of it:
There is literally nothing, no matter how small or inconsequential, that he will not lie about. This man lacks any moral compass or even the semblance of common decency.
