Borno senator and contender for the position of the Senate President, Ali Ndume, has urged his colleagues to vote according to their conscience.

The inauguration of the ninth assembly is underway and the lawmakers are currently electing presiding officers of the upper chamber.

The All progressives Congress (APC) had endorsed Ahmed Lawan as its preferred candidate for the position and Ovie Omo-Agege as the Deputy Senate President.

Mr Ndume, a member of APC, had acted against the resolution of the party and declared his intention for the position.

He was nominated on the floor of the Senate as the chairman of the ninth senate and thereafter called upon by the Clerk of the National Assembly, Sani Omolori, to address his colleagues.

In his remarks, the lawmaker stated part of his nine point agenda as well as areas he would tackle if elected as senate president.

“First is the office of the Senate president. This office is gradually losing its right and prestige because the powers of a senator is virtually taken and controlled by the office of the senate president.

“The second thing that we need to do is to understand that this senate is an arm of government that was deliberately created to work interdependently with the executive without compromising the constitutional responsibility of the Senate.

“As a member of this our great party, it will be our intention to collectively work and move Nigeria to the next level by deepening and enhancing Mr president’s agenda on security, infrastructure and fight against corruption,” he explained.

Mr Ndume also promised to “fix leakages” in budget as well as provide legal backing for constituency projects.

Other promises he made was contacting former colleagues who can be resourceful, and ensuring that the lawmakers control their resources themselves.

“I intend that we should control our resources not the office of the presiding officers,” he said.

He, thereafter, urged the senators present to vote according to their conscience, knowing that their choice is “Allah’s choice.”

“Distinguished colleagues, the choice is yours and that’s why I resisted and insisted that we should make our choices and right now, the choice is Almighty Allah’s choice.

“I implore you to vote according to your conscience…”

There are 107 senators in the senate chamber and the voting process is ongoing.

“My brother has been sleeping with me since I was 13 years old. Sometimes last year, he sent his wife out of their matrimonial home for about eight months.

He sent her out, so that he could have his way with me on a daily basis. I had no one to cry to because he is my eldest brother. We lost our mum when I was 10 years old; this made me to stay with him.

He promised to marry me despite all odds. He told me that I should not terminate the pregnancy. He said that once I was delivered of the baby, he would get someone to take the baby and we would become rich.”

Frederick on his own part said he started sleeping with his sister, after he returned home and saw her looking like his wife. News Telegraph reported that the rape suspect however insisted that Blessing was 17-years-old when he defiled her, and recently clocked 18 in January.

The baby and her mother were reportedly released to the officials of the Ministry of Women Affairs, after some documents were signed by both parties.

Corey Atchison freed after serving 28 years in prison for murder he didn’t commit

Corey Atchison, an Oklahoma prison inmate serving a life sentence for murder was on Tuesday, July 16, vindicated and freed of the crime.

The Oklahoma native spent 28 years behind bars, after being found guilty in 1991 for the murder of James Lane who was shot in an alleged robbery in 1990. Atchison’s freedom however came after a private investigator, Eric Cullen, took up his case having previously helped to free his younger brother, Malcolm Scott in 2016 of wrongful murder conviction passed in 1994.

While in Scott’s case the man who testified against him confessed to the murder of a 19-year-old woman named Karen Summers before being executed for another crime, it was found that authorities had bullied witnesses into offering false testimony in Atchison’s case. Ruling on the case, District Judge Sharon Holmes said the case was marred by a “fundamental miscarriage of justice.”

“Corey was arrested three months before his daughter was born; this is the first time he’s been able to have some real contact with her and the same with his 10-year-old grandson,” his lawyer Joseph Norwood told The Washington Post. “I’m very proud to have vindicated them and reunited them.”

Speaking to newsmen after being freed of murder with his arm around his young grandson, Atchison said he felt “blessed” and held no grudges. “Life’s too short,” he said. “I’ve got some time with this little guy to make him into a man.”
