Move To Remove Gbajabiamila As House Leader Thickens.







Ahmed Baba Kaita, a lawmaker representing Katsina Federal Constituency, on Tuesday, November 10, alleged that there are plans by loyalists of the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, to remove Femi Gbajabiamila as the majority leader of the House.

Kaita noted that the ruling All Progressives Congress had sent instruction on the lingering issue on the alleged lopsided composition of chairmen of the House standing committees that was not followed by the Speaker.

Kaita said: “Our party gave instructions to Mr. Speaker about five days ago and he promised to get back to the party by Monday. It was the same Monday he flouted the party’s directives.

“Yesterday, when we were meeting at the party secretariat, SMS were sent by the people who do not want APC to succeed in the House.

“The content was that Gbajabiamila would be removed this morning (yesterday) and they planned it. But when we arrived at this meeting, they couldn’t do so. They failed because they know we have the majority. As long as this House is going to be dictated by the PDP, we will resist it.

“If Dogara wants us to be with him, fine and good, we have no problems with that. He is one of our own, but only if he will align with the party’s wishes, manifestos and programmes of Mr. President, he will have a smooth ride because we have the majority.

“But as long as he flouts party’s directives and as long as he instigates unscrupulous members to attempt to remove Gbajabiamila, we will resist it.”




However, Ado Doguwa, the chief whip who is a pro-Dogara lawmaker noted that there is no plan by the Speaker or the House leadership to remove Gbajabiamila as House leader. He explained that the alleged meeting held by APC caucus in Hearing Room 1 was meant to discuss some issue and was not a move to remove the House leader.

Doguwa said: “You are aware of what happened yesterday when the Speaker chaired a special session of the House to inaugurate the committees.

“I want to inform you, on behalf of the leadership that there is no crack whatsoever as far as we are concerned.

“As we speak, the Speaker and the House leadership are in the meeting room of the office of the Speaker, discussing how we can move ahead.

“Nigerians are tired of this waiting. We were elected to come and work as members of the House of Representatives.”

Brazilian footballer Neymar faces fresh police questioning over claim he raped a model in Paris hotel room



Brazilian footballer, Neymar, 26, will be questioned for the second time over claims he raped a model in a Paris Hotel room.

The Paris Saint-Germain star has reportedly agreed to fly into São Paulo in Brazil to meet with detectives over the alleged rape attack on 26-year-old model, Najila Trindade Mendes de Souza. 

Speaking to MailOnline, Dr. Juliana Lopes Bussacos, the officer in charge of the investigation, said: ‘He will be treated like any other citizen. He has the same rights as any other man.

‘I have interviewed many men in these situations and everyone is equal and they all have the right to tell their story and produce evidence to back it up.’

With detectives desperate to get to the bottom of what happened,  Dr. Juliana said she couldn’t enter into details of the rape accuser’s complaint due to confidentiality.

‘There are so many questions and answers that need clarification. He says he did not rape her and she has said she has evidence.

The former Barcelona striker is expected to give his statement in the next 48 hours, and then officers will decide if there is a case and if it is necessary to bring them together.

This comes after it was revealed that Neymar could be cleared of the rape accusation levied against him within days over lack of more evidence from his accuser.

The Brazilian model has been informed by her lawyer that she faces seeing her case against the Paris Saint-Germain star dropped except there is more evidence. She also faces losing the second lawyer to represent her after he said he could not carry on if his professional ‘trust’ in her was compromised.

Trindade’s attorney Danileo Garcia de Andrade said he still believed Ms. Trindade had a case, but he would step aside if there was a lack of evidence.

Mr. Daileo said he had given her a deadline to produce the video and photographs she claimed to have had which would help prove her allegations of rape against the Brazilian superstar. But if the evidence was not forthcoming, he said, he would drop the case next week.

Mr de Andrade told Brazil’s UOL Esporte: ‘If the police investigation of the supposed break-in where she lives shows there was no break-in, I am leaving the case.’

He added: ‘The attorney-client relationship is based always on trust. If there is no trust, then there is no reason to stay on’

Trindade claimed she was the victim of ‘aggression and rape’ by the Paris Saint-Germain player in a hotel room in the French capital on May 15. She said the encounter started out consensual but quickly turned violent, leaving her with bruises and scrapes to her legs and buttocks, with Neymar refusing to stop.

She told police her tablet containing a seven-minute video, messages and photos she alleged incriminated the footballer, was stolen in a burglary at her apartment. But the authorities said they found no major signs of a break-in and only Ms. Trindade’s fingerprints and those of her maid and friends around the flat.

Neymar has strongly denied raping her but admitted that what happened between them was consensual.
