The PUNCH: The crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party took a new dimension on Friday with the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, making a series of allegations against the Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, and the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, among others. While the PDP is waiving the olive branch in the direction of the governor, Ayu and Atiku refused to react to his outburst.


The Guardian: Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has dared the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to suspend him and face the consequences if the party feels he is not fighting for justice, equity and fairness. The governor equally accused the National Chairman of the party, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, of obtaining the sum of N1 billion in the guise of funding the party but never remitted the money to the party’s account, insisting on the resignation of the national chairman.

This Day: The striking members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), yesterday approached the Court of Appeal, Abuja for an order to stay the execution of a court judgement ordering it to end its ongoing nationwide strike.
The university teachers have been on strike since February 14, to press home their demands for improved funding for universities and a review of salaries for lecturers, among other issues. Justice Polycarp Hamman of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria, Abuja Division, had on Wednesday, while delivering ruling in an interlocutory injunction application by the federal government, restrained ASUU from continuing with the strike.


The Nation: The crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) grew from bad to worse yesterday after Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike declared that the party was arrogant and scaring Nigerians with its mishandling of its own internal affairs. “You are making Nigerians to be afraid. If you say Nigerians are not happy with APC and then you don’t want to do the right things because of that…with what you are doing, you are scaring Nigerians,” Wike said, berating several party leaders for bringing the PDP this low ahead of the 2023 elections.
