Naija News looks at the top happenings making headlines on the front pages of Nigeria’s national newspapers today Sunday, May 22nd 2022.

The PUNCH: All the presidential aspirants in the All Progressives Congress, except a former  Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, are open to the idea of the candidate of the party emerging through consensus. The consensus method will entail the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), anointing one of the aspirants, while the others simply step down for him as was done during the March 26 national convention of the APC, which produced Senator Abdullahi Adamu as the chairman.


The Guardian: As Nigerians await President Muhammadu Buhari’s assent to the amended Section 84(8) of the Electoral Act 2022, the plan by the two major political parties, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to adopt the consensus option during their primary elections has left the parties confused and indecisive on a number of actions.


The Nation: The 36 state governors and members of the National Assembly are back in the trenches for battle over the control of the ad hoc delegates who will, in the next few days, pick the presidential candidates of the parties for next year’s elections.


Sunday SUN: The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders (COSEYL), the umbrella body of all the youth groups in the Southeast geopolitical zone, has called on the General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Kumuyi, to ignore the warning of the spokesman of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Emma Powerful, urging him to cancel his crusade in Southeast based on security issues.

Thank you for reading, that all for today, see you again tomorrow for a review of Nigerian newspapers.
