PDP Taking Advantage of Saraki’s Buhaha

Published

on

Not up to 24 hours after the arraignment of Senate President Bukola Saraki, some of his loyalists and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senators are secretly planning to fight back, The Nation has learnt.

They are said to be working on a plan which will lead to the election of a new Senate President from the PDP, should Saraki be convicted by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) – the “worst case scenario.” Security agencies already know about the plot, it was learnt.

Besides, there are signs pro-Saraki senators may have “laid an ambush” for President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial list, which is being expected at the Senate “any moment from now”. They may reject the list and all appointments so far by the President in protest against Saraki’s trial.

 The Presidency is unruffled: A source, who spoke in confidence, said last night: “Some loyalists of Saraki and PDP senators have been meeting on the options available and how to tackle President Buhari. “At the meeting in Abuja, they resolved to stand by Saraki but if he is convicted, they will make sure that the next president of the Senate is from the PDP. “They are really aggrieved and have vowed to stop the candidate of the Unity Forum, Sen. Ahmed Lawan, from emerging as Saraki’s successor.
“From the way PDP and its senators are rallying around Saraki, no one needs a soothsayer to know that a bigger conspiracy is in the offing. The PDP has not come to terms with the fact that it lost the last general elections.” Part of the plot is to reject Buhari’s ministerial list and all appointments so far made by the President. The appointments include the Federal Inland Revenue Service, Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Nigerian Customs Service (NCS), Assets Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON), etc. The source went on: “They know that Buhari will not present imposed candidates as ministerial nominees and they are out for a pound of flesh as from September 29 because the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) dragged the President of the Senate to the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT)” It was gathered that security agencies have smashed the plot. A government source said: “The whole plot is aimed at frustrating the President and cause a political crisis in the country. “They have this feeling that they must pull down the house due to the arraignment of Saraki by CCT. In spite of denial, they are pointing accusing fingers at the Presidency for Saraki’s travails.” Attempts to make loyalists of House of Reps Speaker Yakubu Dogara to pitch their tent with Saraki appear to have suffered a setback. It was learnt that although Saraki backed Dogara to become the Speaker, the “template has changed”. “To take sides is to set the House on fire all over. This will not augur well for the new National Assembly,” said one of the close associates of Speaker Dogara.

Davido has threatened to sue Dammy Krane over alleged defamation of character and cyberbullying.

Krane, in a post via X on Friday, accused Davido of being a “murderer” while hurling curses at the ‘OBO’ hitmaker.

He also shared a video of Davido and Chioma and alleged that the 31-year-old is getting married because “your girl caught you cheating”.

But in a statement on Friday, Chikaosolu Ojukwu, Davido’s legal representative, said Krane’s allegations “are unverified, false, and outlandish”.

The lawyer described Krane’s post as “malicious, orchestrated to defame and injure the reputation of Davido”.

“We are informed by our client that you have repeatedly published statements on your social media platforms that he finds not only defamatory and offensive but which also constitute an act of cyberbullying,” the statement reads.

“The false nature of your publications is evident, and it is clear that you have not verified their accuracy. The malicious nature of your post is also evident from your subsequent post taunting our client and stating that “HE CAN’T SUE BECAUSE I SPEAK THE TRUTH OPONU”, when in fact you know your allegations to be false and outlandish.”

Krane was also asked to delete the tweet on Davido within 24 hours or face legal action, including damages and injunctive relief.

“Within 24 hours from the date of this letter, remove and retract the offensive publication from all your social media platforms,” it added.

“Immediately refrain from any further publication of defamatory statements against our client on any platform whatsoever.

“Take notice that your failure to comply with these demands within the stipulated timeframe will compel our client to pursue all available legal remedies, including but not limited to initiating legal proceedings against you for damages and injunctive relief, and escalating this matter to the relevant law enforcement agencies.”

The singers have not been on good terms since 2022 after Krane accused Davido of unpaid debts.

Social media was recently sent agog after Wizkid referred to Don Jazzy as an influencer while replying to an alleged diss comment from Mavin Records signee Ladipoe.

Rapper Ladipoe posted that Afrobeats stars were going through their own “Afrobeats is dead era” after Nigerian hip hop had been through the “hip hop is dead era”.

Wizkid had earlier commented that “hip hop was dead” which generated criticism and reactions from Nigerian rappers with Oladips and Zila Oaks releasing diss records aimed at the Grammy winner.

Ladipoe’s comments were considered by some fans to be targeted at Wizkid whose attention was called to it during an online interactive session with fans.

Wizkid reacted to Ladipoe’s statement by saying he can’t engage a rapper signed to an influencer in a comment that drew reaction and criticism for being disrespectful to Mavin Records boss Don Jazzy.

Wizkid asked me to take down our song, says Terry G

Published

Terry G, the Nigerian singer, has revealed that Wizkid’s legal team demanded the removal of ‘Mary Jane’ from streaming platforms.

‘Mary Jane’, a song by Terry G featuring Wizkid, was recorded several years ago but was released in April.

In a recent interview on Afrobeats Podcast, Terry G disclosed that the track was recorded in his studio in 2016.

He said he did not seek approval from Wizkid’s management before putting out the song.

Terry G said Wizkid’s lawyers reached out to him to take the song down, adding that he has directed his team to comply.

“To be honest, ‘Mary Jane’ was recorded years ago. He came to my house in 2016, right inside my studio,” he recalled.

“I didn’t clear the song I made with him because in my era we don’t clear songs, we do collaborations based on love.

“I got an email and my management contacted me. They didn’t want to tell me so that I wouldn’t feel bad. They said his lawyer messaged them about what is going on.

“I have dropped the song and requested that it be pulled down, and I am sure they will do that. The lawyers have also reached out to me to take the song down.”

Despite their perceived misunderstanding, Terry G expressed his admiration for Wizkid, describing him as the “Jay Z of this generation”.

He recounted how they both recorded songs in his house, adding that those were “one of the greatest moments for me” in the music industry.

“The memory I had with Wizkid is good, we ended with love and I placed him so much on a high priority,” he said.

“He came to my house, we recorded about four songs, and I appreciate it. We did a lot, and that was one of the greatest moments for me in this music game we were playing.

“Wizkid is the Jay Z of your generation. There is something I like about Wizkid. It’s not about what you have but how you carry it. He’s got that carriage and he inspires a lot.”
