The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has rejected the majority of documents presented before the Presidential Election Petition Court by Atiku Abubakar and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The rejection followed the admissibility of the material in accordance with the court-ordered pre-hearing reports binding on all parties in the case.

Atiku Abubakar and the PDP will have to deal with the rejection of papers that was supposed to help their case before the petition court, as all of the respondents appeared to be opposed to their admissibility.

This contradicts INEC’s comments during the pre-hearing, which stated that they would not object to any document completely certified by the commission.

Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday, elected Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, as the chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF).

This was confirmed by Yobe state Governor, Mai Mala Buni, during the meeting with the APC National Working Committee (NWC) in Abuja.

Addressing the party’s leadership during the meeting, Uzodinma said: “Under my watch, we will be very close to the party.

The purpose of the forum is to add impetus to the activities of the party and the government. We are only going to act as salesmen that will market the policies and programmes of the government.”

The Imo governor further noted that; “arising from the manifesto promised to the people before the election, I can assure you that you have a team and working together with the kind of men I have seen as Progressives Governors members, I think we have gotten all it would take to ensure that policies of our government were fully market.

Although the agenda for the meeting was not made public, sources within the secretariat told our correspondent that it must have one or two things to do with addressing the internal wrangling within the party and the contentious zoning arrangements for the leadership of the 10th National Assembly as well

Talks between the Federal Government and the organised labour hit a deadlock on Wednesday evening as no consensus was reached.

The hours-long meeting which held at the Presidential Villa was to, among other things, prevent a labour crisis following the recent increase in petrol pump price occasioned by the discontinuance of petroleum subsidy.

Speaking at the end of the meeting, the President of the Nigerian Labour Congress, Joe Ajaero, said, “As far as labour is concerned, we didn’t have a consensus in this meeting.”

He faulted the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Limited over an official release published hours earlier, reviewing the petrol pump price in its filling stations nationwide.

He said the move puts the labour unions in a difficult position on the negotiation table.
