Ribadu Decamps APC, Joins PDP

It seems we in a weather of sudden changes and we’ve got to accept that. A former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Nuhu Ribadu, has dumped the opposition All Progressives Congress [APC] and joined the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP]. Just as many were shocked at sudden and unexpected defection of the former gov. of Osun, Olagusoye Oyinlola from PDP to APC, Ribudu decamping is of greater surprise.  Mr. Ribadu was the presidential candidate of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria [ACN] in 2011 and until his defection today considered one of the presidential prospects of the APC in the 2015 presidential election.

A 2nd response to Lai Mohammed & APC's second statement

Femi Fani Kayode releases another statement which he says is his final reaction to Lai Mohammed and the APC's latest response to him. 

"I read the second response of Lai Mohammed and the APC to my comments which appeared in yesterday's newspapers. Does this so-called spokesman for Nigeria's opposition party have nothing better to do than to join issues with me on a daily basis? It is reinvigorating and humbling to note that Nigeria's main opposition party can dedicate and deploy so much time and so many resources just to tackle me. I shall ignore the childish name-calling coming from a supposedly serious-minded political party that is looking for power. One wonders what you would do to your perceived enemies if, God-forbid, you ever get that power.
