Tinubu, Ganduje Plotted To Hand Rivers APC To Wike, Embarrass Amaechi – Eze

Tinubu and wike

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze has condemned the dissolution of the executives of the party in Rivers State.

 

Eze, in a statement on Saturday, alleged that the development was part of a plot to embarrass former Rivers governor, Chibuike Amaechi.

 

Eze noted that President Bola Tinubu and the party’s National Chairman, Umar Ganduje, plotted the scheme to hand over the state chapter of the party to FCT Minister Nyesom Wike and write off Amaechi and his team, notwithstanding the “wars the latter fought to prune and nurture the party to its sustainable status”.

He reminded those he called the cabal to be wary of Wike, who he described as a political chameleon.

“I am happy to note that both Tinubu and Ganduje have suffered and tested the bitter pills of Wike in most of his attempts to decimate the party and to handover the party structure to him and his agents is nothing but sheer wickedness and unreasonableness, because it will definitely backfire.

“It is however unfortunate that all the appointments so far made by Tinubu and his government have only favored Wike, who fought Rivers APC to a standstill with the resource of the state at their peck and call,” he said.

Eze called on Ganduje and the national leadership of the party to note that their action could be prejudicial as the dissolution of the state exco is pending before a court of competent jurisdiction, before which an ex parte motion was also filed praying that parties maintain status quo – which means shelving the inauguration of the interim committee.

When asked if the government’s side was showing any sign of seriousness, the labour leader said, “No seriousness at all. Even state governors did not show up. Those who represented them, like Bauchi and Niger states, did not have the mandates to speak on their behalf.

Real Madrid’s goalkeeper shares recovery insights after two injuries

Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has opened up about his recovery journey following two serious knee injuries.

 

Courtois said, “In August, I cried because the worst thing that can happen to you in football is a cruciate ligament injury. When I returned home, I said that I was going to work hard and come back stronger. That was my idea from the beginning: to stay positive, fight, never give up, and push my limits.

 

“Many thought my season was over, but I knew it wasn’t,” Courtois told Marca.

Recall that for most of the current season, Courtois missed out due to two injuries: a cruciate ligament tear and a meniscus injury. In his absence, first-choice goalkeeper was Chelsea’s loanee Kepa Arrizabalaga, and later, he faced competition from Andriy Lunin.

Upon his return, Courtois played in 3 La Liga matches, keeping clean sheets in all of them. In the last game against Alaves, the Belgian made 10 saves.

Earlier, it was reported that Courtois’ recovery from injury will be featured in a documentary series.
