Daniels Igoni, Yenagoa

The Federal High Court in Yenagoa, has dismissed a suit seeking to disqualify a former governor of Bayelsa State and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr. Seriake Dickson, from contesting the Bayelsa West senatorial by-election.

The case was filed by one Eneoriekumoh Owoupele, who hails from the same Sagbama Local Government Area as Dickson.

Owoupele had alleged in the suit No. FHC/YNG/CS/72/2020 that the Independent National Electoral Commission Form EC9, which the PDP candidate submitted to the commission, contained false information.

But the presiding judge, Justice Jane Inyang, in her judgment on Wednesday, struck out the case “for lack of jurisdiction.”

She also ruled that the plaintiff, through his lawyers, A.O Aniso and E. A Aluzu, brought the matter before the court after the stipulated time.

Kayode Oyero

A Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Femi Fani-Kayode, has described the report of the planned defection of Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, as “troubling”.

The PUNCH exclusively reported Wednesday that Umahi told the PDP National Working Committee at a meeting in Abuja on Tuesday of his decision to leave the party for the ruling All Progressives Congress.

The governor also told the PDP NWC led by the party National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, that the APC would protect the interest of the South-East in the 2023 elections.

Reacting on Wednesday, Fani-Kayode, who is also a former Aviation Minister, said he was yet to confirm the report but urged the PDP national leadership to pacify Umahi as more governors in the party might follow the Ebonyi governor to the APC.

He tweeted, “I urge the leadership of the PDP to do all they can to ensure that he stays. Not only is he a profoundly good man and an excellent Governor but his contributions to the success of the PDP over the last 20 years at various levels is immeasurable and simply extraordinary.

Kamala Harris’s husband has quit his law firm job for a White House role despite claiming he wouldn’t go into politics.

Doug Emhoff will leave DLA Piper, where is a partner, by inauguration day on 20 January, according to the Associated Press.

Emhoff took a leave of absence from the firm in August when vice president-elect Harris ran on Joe Biden’s ticket.

The future second man is reportedly working with Biden’s transition team to establish a role for him in the administration.

A Biden official told Fox News that Mr Emhoff was “working with the Biden-Harris transition team to develop the portfolio he will focus on to support the work of the administration.”

Emhoff joined DLA Piper in 2017 where he works with media, sports and entertainment clients, as well as intellectual property and technology, litigation, arbitration and investigations.

“Douglas Emhoff is a highly experienced litigator and strategic advisor,” his DLA Piper profile reads.

“Doug is known for tackling and resolving the toughest problems – whether by aggressively litigating high-stakes cases in the public glare or acting as a trusted advisor behind the scenes.

“For over 25 years, Doug has proven himself in courtrooms and boardrooms across California and around the country.”

Biden reassures Asian allies on Defence commitments

0

US President-elect Joe Biden rang round allies in Seoul, Sydney and Tokyo Thursday, vowing to repair frayed partnerships and reaffirming mutual-defence pacts thrown in doubt by the current White House.

A day after Biden’s series of “America is back” calls with European leaders, the former vice president spoke to Australia’s Scott Morrison, South Korea’s Moon Jae-in and the recently installed Japanese leader Yoshihide Suga.

All three men had already congratulated Biden on his recent election victory over Donald Trump, despite the incumbent’s refusal to concede.

Biden’s call with Suga included a stark warning from the Japanese prime minister that the “security situation is increasingly severe” around the region, according to an account of the call from Japanese officials.

Suga’s unusually frank analysis was met with Biden expressing his “deep commitment to the defence of Japan” and to decades-old treaty obligations, according to his transition team.
