APC to expel 33 members in Niger

APC holds emergency NEC Tuesday
The Niger state Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Engineer Mohammad Jubril Imam has disclosed that 33 members of the state APC are on the verge of facing expulsion and other disciplinary measures.

Briefing newsmen in Minna, Imam said that these members had taken the Party to court without exhausting all avenues for reconciliation and settlement.

“We have had running battles in the court of law regarding internal cases. Our members who lost primaries took the party to court. There are 33 internal cases from those who are dissatisfied with our primaries and have gone to court.”

The Chairman stated that the Party had won all the cases as the cases have been struck out by the court, “All the cases were struck out in favour of APC.”

He said that the Party had decided to invoke the constitutional provision of the party which stated that once a member takes the Party to court without exhausting all avenues, the person ceases to be a member of the Party.

“We are not unaware of the constitutional provision of the party.

The local government election primaries went free and fair but some recalcitrant party members decided to take the party to court.

“We know the party constitutional provision that once you take the party to court without exhausting all avenues, you are deemed not to be members of the party.

“The working committee will meet and deliberate on those that took us to court. Since we have defeated them, even an appeal, then the constitutional provision of the party will take its due course.

“If we leave them at the party, they will become a virus and become more deadly than COVID-19. The party will take steps about them.”

Two ways Manchester United could line up with Donny Van de Beek transfer

Manchester United have emerged as frontrunners in the race to sign Ajax midfielder Donny Van de Beek.

The Guardian report that United are hopeful of signing the Dutch star who has attracted interest from several other elite clubs.

Van de Beek, 23, starred in the Ajax team that reached the Champions League semi-finals in the 2018/19 season and is one of Europe’s most talented young midfielders.

We looked at two ways United could line-up next season if they complete the signing of the versatile Dutchman.

This system would allow Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to accommodate each of his most potent attacking threats.

While Van de Beek is most effective in a box-to-box role, he has experience shielding the back four and could provide the platform for Paul Pogba to roam in a double midfield pivot.

Van de Beek made six appearances in the defensive midfield role for Ajax in the 2019/20 season and has the ability to operate as Solskjaer’s anchorman ahead of Nemanja Matic.

However, Matic offers a more experi…

De Gea hailed by Henderson but warns him for No. 1 spot battle

Dean Henderson has cautioned David de Gea he is aiming for his Manchester United place. The 23-year-old goalkeeper will retreat to Old Trafford after an exceptional loan spell at Sheffield United, determined to take the 1st spot off the Spaniard.

Academy alumnus Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract last month among connections to Chelsea. Thus, making it obvious he sees himself at Old Trafford for the long term.

“I’ll be moving back in the first day of pre-season and sweating my b******s off to get in that starting line-up because it’s something I’ve constantly required and I’m so close now. I have tremendous respect for David. He has been a magnificent goalkeeper for many years.

He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.

Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last …
