    By Emeka Oraetoka: NIPOST, Stamp Duty, Employment Generation, and the Communications Minister With the assignment of Communication Ministry to Barrister Adebayo Shittu, the Nigerian Postal Service [NIPOST], could not have bargained for a better choice. The Postal industry in particular will no doubt, benefit immensely from its parent ministry as the Communication Minister will do everything possible to ensure that NIPOST is given the required attention by the government of the day. This writer had a rare opportunity of meeting Barr. Shittu in a location at Area 2, in Garki, as a…

  • Dumping Faleke as Audu’s replacement, a mistake — Sagay
    Dumping Faleke as Audu’s replacement, a mistake — Sagay Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN) tells TOBI AWORINDE that the All Progressives Congress’ deputy governorship candidate, James Faleke, should replace the late Abubakar Audu in the run-off Why do you support the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission to conduct a supplementary governorship election in Kogi State? It is because the election has already been held. It is a waste of time, resources and the efforts and energy of the people to go back and take part in an election in which they have already voted. Therefore, only those who have not voted and have been deprived of voting should vote. That is what we have been saying — Section 181 of the constitution already shows that once an election has been conducted and the results show that there is a leader, if the person dies, then the running mate should take his place; even though in this case the results have been declared inconclusive. Those are the two legs of my argument: You do not repeat an election that has been concluded and whose results have already been written down. In essence, it is only those that have not voted who will now vote. And as to who will…

  • Kogi governorship race gets messier by the day
    Kogi governorship race gets messier by the day James Abiodun Faleke, the running mate to late Abubakar Audu, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Saturday’s governorship election in Kogi State, has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to declare him governor elect. He has also asked his party to ignore INEC’s directive that it produce a new governorship candidate. In a November 26 letter to INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, Falake’s lawyer, the respected senior advocate, Wole Olanipekun, insisted that under Section 187 of the 1999 Constitution, Faleke was duly elected as deputy governor of Kogi State and that INEC had no right under the law to declare the election inconclusive. He accused INEC of deliberately creating what he called “legal conundrum” and urged the APC not to be a party to the action. “In law and logic, no new candidate can inherit or be a beneficiary of the votes already cast, counted and declared by INEC before that candidate was nominated and purportedly sponsored,” Mr. Faleke wrote through his counsel, Wole Olanipekun. “Assuming without conceding that INEC is even right to order a supplementary election, the votes already cast, counted and declared on Saturday, 25th November 2015, were votes for the joint constitutional ticket of…
