The All Progressives Congress (APC) has extended the tenure of the national working committee (NWC) of the party led by John Oyegun by 12 months.
The decision was taken at the national executive council (NEC) meeting on Tuesday.
Speaking at the end of the NEC meeting, Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi state, said the extension would take effect from June 30.
“The NEC met today and major decisions in line with the constitution of the party. We all aware that the tenure of current NWC and the executive members of this party both elected and appointed come to an end June this year,” he said.
“Considering the time left for the party to conduct all the congresses and conventions and considering that our leader Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been charged with the responsibility of reconciling all aggrieved members of our party, we cannot afford to approach the general election with more disputes and crises adding that party have decided on line with article 13 which empowers the NEC to carry out the functions of its convention and the NEC has decided to extend the tenure of current NWC other executive committees at various levels for another 12months starting from June 30th.”
TheCable had reported pro-Buhari governors impressed it on the president that it was better to elongate Oyegun’s tenure than risk a new convention that could further fracture the party.
Bola Tinubu, national leader of the ruling party, had accused the chairman of sabotaging his efforts to reconcile aggrieved members of the APC.
But speaking at the presidential villa in Abuja on Friday, Bello said governors and many members of the ruling party have confidence in Oyegun .
Prostitute drags Uber driver to court for failing to pay N6,000 ‘service charges’
A 28-year-old Uber driver, Sunday Omale, was on Tuesday arraigned before Magistrate E. Kubeinje of an Ogudu Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State for allegedly refusing to pay a commercial sex worker.
Omale, who resides at Alhaja Elesin Street, Ogudu, is facing assault occasioning bodily harm after having three rounds of sex with one Precious Mustapha.
The accused was alleged to have refused paying her N6,000, being her service charge.
The prosecutor, Sgt. Lucky Ihiehie, told the court that the accused committed the offence on July 29 at Ogudu area of the state.
Ihiehie said Omale allegedly assaulted the complainant after having canal knowledge of her.
The prosecutor said that the 28-year-old complainant suspected to be a commercial sex worker had reported the matter to the Police.
Ihiehie said that the complainant had met Omale at the African Shrine, Ikeja, where she charged him N6,000 after having three rounds of sex with her.
The prosecution said an argument ensued between them as Omale claimed that he did not have cash on him, and suggested the option of using his ATM card to withdraw money to pay her.
Ihiehie said Omale drove with the complainant round Ikeja and Ogudu axis without stopping at any of the banks where he could have used his ATM card to withdraw money.
The prosecution said Omale also deceived the complainant by driving her to his friend’s house with the pretext of collecting money from him to pay her.
“Unfortunately, the accused’s friend chased him out of his compound.
“When it became clear to the accused that there was no place where he could get money, he used an object to hit Precious Mustapha on the head and started beating her,’’ Ihiehie said.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Omale, who was not represented by any counsel, pleaded not guilty to the offence.
The prosecutor said that the offence contravened Section 173 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
Kubeinje, however, admitted the accused to bail in the sum of N50,000 with two sureties who must have evidence of tax payment for two years.
The magistrate adjourned the case until September 25.

READ: Five underwear tips for maximum comfort during menstruation
Comfort is unarguably part of every lady’s top priority when ‘Aunt Flow’ comes visiting.
While on your period, mood swings, cramps and nausea make you uncomfortable.
The type of underwear and its features also goes a long way in determining how comfortable you feel.
Here are five tips to consider for underwear choice while menstruating.
Use bright coloured underwear
While you might be tempted to use dark coloured underwear for fear of stains, they are not your best option because dark colours are good conductors of heat.
Your pubic area should be free of moisture and heat. Bright coloured underwear such as cream, baby pink, shy blue, and white repel heat and keep you dry.
Tight but not tight
In between tight and loose is what you need. Your underwear should be tight enough to hold your sanitary wears and lose enough to avoid friction on your skin.
Do not use underwear made from lyrac, nylon or lace materials as they reduce aiflow and make your sweaty. Cotton underwear is absorbent, soft and comfortable. They also let go of stains easily.
Use pant liners for tampons
If you are using tampons, it would be safer to lay a liner on your panties, especially if you are using your favourites, so you don’t ruin them.
You would need panties big enough to cover your pubic region and hold your sanitary pads in place. You may want to avoid g-strings. You may use seamless pants to avoid panties lines traces on your clothes.
