The PUNCH: The National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party led by the acting National Chairman, Umar Damagum, has reversed the suspension of the party’s chieftains including a former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose and an-President of the Senate, Pius Anyim. The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, who disclosed this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja, said the suspension of other party leaders such as a former Katsina State Governor, Ibrahim Shema; a Benue State chieftain, Prof Dennis Ityavyar, and Dr Aslam Aliyu of Zamfara State, was also reversed.
The Guardian: As reactions trail the disclosure by the Department of State Services (DSS) on Wednesday over plot to install interim government ahead of May 29 handover from President Muhammadu Buhari to President-elect Bola Tinubu, Labour Party (LP) has dissociated itself from the alleged plot, denying being part of any unconstitutional arrangement to install an interim government.
The Nation: The plot for an interim government is alien to the constitution and an aberration, legal giants said yesterday. The jurists said no one must be allowed to scuttle democracy.
Daily Trust: The organised labour has cautioned the federal government against petrol subsidy removal, vowing to resist the move if it is not carried along. The President and the Secretary-General of the Trade Union Congress (TUC), Festus Osifo and Abba Toro, respectively, gave the caution in separate chats with Daily Trust on Thursday.
