Following Senate President, Bukola Saraki’s appeared yesterday before the Code of Conduct Tribunal over alleged false assets declaration.
The, All Progressives Congress, APC was said to be considering former Senate leader, George Akume, wife of the national leader of the APC, Senator Bola Tinubu , Senator Remi Tinubu and two other ranking senators from the South West zone as Saraki’s replacement.
Apart from Senator Akume who is from the North Central zone and Remi Tinubu, no other names were mentioned but sources said other two ranking senators also from the South West are being considered on APC shop list.
Feelers from Abuja reaching Kaduna, the second home of President Muhammadu Buhari revealed that, barring any last minute change of plan, Saraki may be asked to resign or if he refused, may be impeached on moral ground to concentrate on his trial.
National Mirror gathered that, Senator Ahmed Lawan who was anointed by APC as its sole candidate but lost to Saraki would emerge senate leader from the North East, since the Speaker is also from the zone.
One of the credible sources explained that, though Saraki and Dogara jettisoned APC’s ,earlier zoning of National Assembly principal officers which favored the North which has both the Senate President and Speaker but that under the new power sharing deal, South West zone may produce the senate president.
South East and South-South have no APC senators and are already out of the new deal. Meanwhile, one of the anti-Saraki’s groups, Northern Ethnic Nationalities Unity Congress, NENUC, had called on the senate president to resign or face impeachment over CCT 13 count charges against him.
How UAE visa ban almost ruined my wedding – Rita Dominic
Rita Dominic, the ace Nollywood actress, has recounted how the visa ban by United Arab Emirates (UAE) almost ruined her wedding.
The UAE immigration authorities had in October banned visa applications to 20 African countries including Nigeria.
In an appreciation post on Instagram on Tuesday, the movie star narrated how the distance between herself and her cloth designer almost affected the event.
It is believed that the fashion designer resides in Dubai.
Dominic also appreciated the gown designer for “going above and beyond” to get the dress to her despite the ban.
“Thank God for a beautiful weekend full of love and joy. Thank you to @michael5inco for making my dream wedding gown. It was a lot of hard work and patience since we were in two different countries,” she wrote.
“The UAE ban almost ruined it all but designer @michael_nardi_ who you see in this video came to the rescue by going and above and beyond to make the necessary alterations and final fittings. So huge hugs to both.
“Thank you to my dream team who worked hard to get me looking good in this gown. Love you all from the bottom of my heart.”
