The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has asked the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole to stay far from Bayelsa State.

Reacting to Oshiomhole’s comment that Douye Diri, governorship candidate the of the party in the 2019 governorship election cannot be sworn-in as governor tomorrow after the Supreme Court sacked David Lyon, PDP cautioned the APC chairman to be careful with his utterances and not use any forms of venomous garrulity and clear misuse of language to destabilise the nation and truncate democracy.

The party accused Oshiomhole of plotting to trigger violence in Bayelsa over Thursday’s judgment of the Supreme Court that sacked the APC governor-elect, Mr David Lyon.

PDP described Oshiomhole’s statement as empty, inconsequential ranting, adding that his alleged plot to trigger violence in the state had failed.

The party also called on the people of Bayelsa state to remain calm, as their mandate has been restored and cannot be taken away by the ranting of any individual who has no stake whatsoever in the wellbeing of his own home state.

The PDP, as a law-abiding party, counsels Oshiomhole to rein in himself and desist from all odious designs against Bayelsa state, her people and government”, statement of the party reads.

The judgment may pave the way for the emergence of the candidate of the PDP, Senator Douye Diri to be sworn-in as governor tomorrow, Friday February 14.

The General overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E. A Adeboye has said if rapture fails to take place soon, he would die on a Sunday after eating pounded yam.

A Court in the United Kingdom has ordered Process & Industrial Developments (P&ID) Limited to pay Nigeria £20 million in damages and compensation following its victory in a $11 billion judgment debt heard in October, 2023.

The court ordered that the money be given to Nigeria within the next 28 days.

The award of £20 million in damages was revealed during a subsequent ruling on the subject in London to determine what happened after the October ruling.

Reports said the hearing was also held to determine whether P&ID would be granted permission to appeal the decision, however, the court denied P&ID’s request to remand the case to arbitration.

It contended that the company’s conduct during the process was heinous, thus the judgment.

Nigeria had sued P&ID for at least £20 million in damages and legal fees but obtained significant relief in October when the UK court released it from entanglement in the $11 billion judgment debt previously issued in favour of P&ID Limited.

In the lawsuit between the Federal Government of Nigeria and P&ID, Justice Robin Knowles of the Commercial Courts of England and Wales affirmed Nigeria’s claim that the gas processing contract was obtained by fraud.

In the judgment delivered after five years of legal battle, Judge Knowles said: “In the circumstances and the reasons I have sought to describe and explain, Nigeria succeeds on its challenge under section 68. I have not accepted all of Nigeria’s allegations. But the awards were obtained by fraud and the way they were procured was contrary to public policy.”

Recall that P&ID was contracted by Nigeria in 2010 to build a gas processing plant in Calabar, Cross River State, in the country’s south but the deal fell through because the Nigerian government did not keep its half of the bargain.

“He can tell you more stories; he’s been with me on borrowed motorbikes in the valleys and on the mountains.

He follows me so hard; some occultic powers said if you can’t get the church, get the man,” but they testified that he was far above the sky, where they can’t locate him.

Do you have value for God’s presence? Then engage with passion; don’t be a social member of this church, or won’t pay you.”
