All Progressives Congress Releases Names of New State Chairpersons

The All Progressives Congress has released the names of its new state chairpersons in 34 states and Abuja.

The party said congresses were not held in Ekiti and Osun states due to the coming elections there and so both states have no newly elected chairpersons.

The chairpersons were elected in the recently concluded state congresses of the party.

PREMIUM TIMES reported how the party split into factions in various states with many states electing factional chairperson.
 Fouad Oki, who was elected chairman by a faction of the Lagos APC was ignored. Instead, Tunde Balogun, who was elected chairman by the main faction loyal to ex-governor Bola Tinubu was recognised by the party.

 In Kwara, the APC recognised Ishola Fulani as chairman. Mr Fulani was elected chairman by the main faction of the party loyal to Senate President Bukola Saraki. Moshood Bolarinwa, who was elected chairman by the Kwara APC faction loyal to Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, was ignored.

In Oyo State, the APC leadership recognised Akin Oke who was re-elected chairman by the Governor Abiola Ajimobi faction. Isiaka Alimi, who was elected by the APC faction led by the Minister of Communication, was ignored.

Atiku Shares Deep Lessons From Black Panther

Over the weekend, I joined my children to watch the much talked about ‘Black Panther’. It was a good film, and I was happy they took me to see it. However, I came out of the movie theatre a little upset. When the first scenes came up, and I saw “Sambisa Forest” I was unhappy that the only reference the film makers could have for Nigeria was a negative one, but I was later encouraged by the thought of Africans solving African problems. That is a good thing, the kinds of things we used to do. For young people who may not remember, Nigerian civil servants and indeed most able citizens used to contribute money every month to support the struggle against Apartheid in South Africa. Nigeria was the single stabilizing force across West Africa. Helping to restore peace in Liberia and Sierra Leone are examples of the gigantic status we once had.

Selling Smart Phone Pictures: When My Phone Photography Exhibition Abuja Held Recently

The maiden edition of the 'my phone photography exhibition' held on the 23rd of March. The Shehu Musa Yar'adua Centre located in central area, Abuja, played host to this event. It was an atmosphere filled with calmness but you could also hear the joy and excitement in the voices of the over 100 people who came through the exhibition doors. 
The idea of the exhibition was born by one of the exhibitors (Omofuoma Agharite). Haven taken numerous pictures with her phone, she wanted to share those pictures with others and at the same time support a charity organisation. It was then that the idea was born and given to Ivy Events to nurture. After months of planning and execution, a group of exhibitors came together to showcase some of the amazing pictures that they had photographed with only their phones.
