2023: Bamgbose says ‘unprincipled’ Dogara wants to replace Buhari

Olusegun Bamgbose, Esq., National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, CAGG, has described a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, as a fairweather politician, who does not value principles and good political ethics.

Barrister Bamgbose said he has been informed that Dogara’s return to the All Progressives Congress, APC, may not be unconnected to 2023 presidency but wondered if Nigeria “deserves such an unprincipled person to be President or Vice President.”

Dove Bulletin Friday reported that Dogara decamped from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

This was after he met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.

Recall that Dogara defected to APC ahead of 2015 elections. In 2018, he defected again back to PDP, now he has gone back to the ruling party and Bamgbose noted that, “this does not really make sense.”

In a chat with Dove Bulletin in reaction to the development, the senior lawyer said that, “Much as we know that defection is legal, but when it becomes too frequent, then the defection will be seen as being defective.

“It’s against this background that we boldly submit that, Dogara’s defection to the APC is highly defective.

“It has only exposed Dogara, as a fairweather politician, who does not value principles and good political ethics.

“We are informed that his defection could be because of 2023 permutations, good, but the one million naira question is,’ Does Nigeria deserve such an unprincipled person to be President or Vice President?

“I believe it’s high time, we told our politicians the bitter truth. This political somersault is fast becoming notorious in our political system.

“APC has no cause to rejoice because of Dogara’s defection. His defection is not only defective but obnoxious.

“He is definitely not an asset to APC but a liability. Taunting PDP as a result of his defection is ridiculous. Dogara has lost his political value.

“He has clearly shown by his latest defection, that he cannot be trusted as a member of any political party.

“Nigerians should look forward to a leader that is focused, firm and faithful. These obnoxious and unethical defections should stop.

“Serving one’s fatherland should not be a do or die affair. We should not allow our ambition to turn us to political prostitutes.

“One would have expected him to remain loyal to PDP, instead of this political somersaults. What’s the guarantee that his ambition would be achieved in APC?

“APC is fast becoming a dumping ground, and you know what a dumping ground is all about, it stinks. Dogara should have a rethink and stick to PDP no matter how rough the weather maybe.”

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…

BBNaija 2020: I will find you a Bayelsa wife, someone like me – Nengi tells Ozo

Big Brother Naija housemate, Nengi, on Sunday said she will find Ozo a Bayelsa wife.

Nengi said this when Ozo said he wanted to take her on a trip after the reality show.

Ozo, however, said he was not interested in another Bayelsa wife.

“I will find you a wife when we leave this place. I will find you someone like me from Bayelsa,” Nengi told Ozo.

But Ozo responded, “if I wanted someone else, I would have chosen.”

Nengi further stated that, “When we leave the house there will be a lot of girls interested in you and you won’t have my time.”

Agreeing that it was a possibility, Ozo insisted he had found something special in her.

Nengi had warned Ozo against mistaking their friendship for a love relationship.

She had maintained that she would not date anyone in the house but Ozo is still trying and working hard to see if she could change her mind.

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 …
