Presidential election: Tinubu sets up reconciliation committee, to meet Peter Obi, Others
The President-elect, Bola Tinubu, has set up a committee to reconcile with other presidential candidates who contested last Saturday’s election.
Disclosing this, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State said the committees comprises elders of the All Progressives Congress, APC, who “would soon begin to meet with co-contestants of the President-elect in a bid to assuage their loss in the just concluded Presidential Election.”
Tinubu of the APC had 8,794,726 votes to defeat Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, who had 6,984,520 votes in the election, the Labour Party, LP’s Peter Obi with 6,101,533 votes and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, with 1,496,687 votes.
However, Akeredolu, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, stressed that last Saturday’s presidential election was not padded.
The statement reads partly: “The President-elect has set up committees to meet with the gentlemen who contested in the election for us to start the healing process.
“I belong to one of the committees. We are going to meet them and appeal to them so that we can work together.”

Breaking: Arsenal suffer Thomas Partey injury worry ahead of crucial Leeds United clash
Thomas Partey will fly back to Arsenal having missed Ghana’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Angola on Monday due to injury.
Ghana manager Chris Houghton confirmed Partey, who remained an unused substitute during the 1-1 draw, was deemed too much of a risk to play during his post-match press conference.
“Thomas has some small injury issues,” Houghton said. “We felt it was too big a risk to start him.”
Arsenal are expecting Partey back at London Colney on Tuesday where they will assess the midfielder, who was accompanied to Ghana by Gunners physio Simon Murphy, ahead of this weekend’s home game with Leeds.
The former Atletico Madrid star felt something in his right leg during a training session with his country on Sunday. Sources close to the player insist it is not a hamstring issue and believe he should be fine for Saturday’s game at Emirates Stadium.
Houghton is understood to have taken the decision to leave Partey out on his own. There was no outside pressure from Arsenal, despite the presence of Murphy.
The Gunners medical team will make a decision later in the week on whether the 29-year-old can feature against Leeds. Arsenal travel to Liverpool the following weekend for a huge game at Anfield as they chase their first Premier League title since 2004.
Should Partey miss out this Saturday, Jorginho would most likely be the man to come in and replace him in midfield.
Breaking: Domestic staff sentenced to death for killing employer, daughter
An Ikeja High Court has sentenced a domestic staff, Joseph Ogbu, to death by hanging for killing his employer, an 89-year-old woman, Ajoke John and her daughter, Oreoluwa in Lagos State.
NAN reports that Justice Modupe Nicole-Clay held on Monday that the prosecution had sufficiently proven the 3-count charge bordering on murder and armed robbery against the convict.
Nicole-Clay held today that the defendant confessed to the crime as he self-confessed living with the deceased and he was the only witness of the incident.
Nicole-Clay said, “He killed Adejoke by strangling her and Oreoluwa by stabbing her to death as defence didn’t raise objection to the admissibility of the confessional statement, there’s no doubt that the defendant confessed to the crimes.
“The defendant couldn’t give an explanation as to what he was doing with all the stolen items he was found with at about 2 am on the date he was arrested.
“This court has found Joseph Ogbu guilty of these heinous crimes and you’re hereby sentenced to death by hanging. May God have mercy on your soul.”
The convict, while gesticulating, begged the court for mercy.
He said in pidgin English, “the mama no die for my presence. I beg for mercy.”
