2023 Presidency: Plot TO Rob Igbos Again Increases



… PDP Plans To Retain Secondus As Natl. Chair

… To Cede Vice President To South East

Agitation to cede the 2023 presidential ticket of the PDP to the Igbo nation may be a mirage as plans to scuttle the said gentlemen agreement is on the increase following plans to retain Uche Secondus, as the national chairman of the party in the next PDP’s convention which takes place anytime this year.

The people of the South East who have been clamoring for the seat of the number one citizen have been given the hope that after Buhari’s regime, it would be their turn since other geo-political zones must have held the said seat.

In a bid to knock off the people of the southeast from taken the said seat which by equity is their turn, the leaders of the party, particularly those from the North were said to have concluded plans to retain Uche Secondus who hails from Rivers as the  National Chairman and cede the position of the Vice president to the Igbo as a ploy to knock the Igbos out in the next presidential election.

However, the plot to allow the two positions in the South is to quench the agitation of Igbo people as well as to place them in a position that they would not have moral justification to still demand for the rights and seat for the presidency.

Information to Lead revealed that the PDP caucus, particularly those from the Northern part of Nigeria are projecting Atiku Abubakar for the party’s presidential ticket in the next election.

Recently the said Uche Secondus made a shocking revelation when he told the PDP members and Nigerians that Atiku Abubakar who filed the ticket of the PDP presidency in the 2019 election with Peter Obi as a running mate can still contest for the party’s primaries when the party in their last election had promised to cede the party’s ticket to the South East in the next election.

This statement by the PDP National chairman, did not go down well with the Igbo nation which warranted different sections and groups, waking up from slumber to press and agitate further the presidential ticket for the Igbos in the next election. Today, the apex social-cultural organization in Igbo land, the Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo has on different occasions made it clear that if Igbo people do not get the presidency of Nigeria in 2023, that the entire Igbo nation would join the IPOB in the fight for the actualization of Biafra.

Reigning Mrs. World, Caroline Jurie resigns, runner up takes over



Reigning Mrs. World resigns, runner up takes over

The reigning Mrs World, Caroline Jurie, has resigned her title, the organization running the pageant, said late on Tuesday, weeks after she was involved in a controversy at the Mrs Sri Lanka event.

I stand proud today, knowing that I stood up for what is right. I believe the Mrs World Crown stands for a purpose,” Jurie wrote in a statement shared on her Instagram page.

She continued: “I know Mrs World Inc. does not condone malpractices. Therefore, wearing the Mrs World crown and holding the title on unfair grounds go against the purpose of ensuring a fair and equal stage for every woman.”

” Hence, I am stepping down from the title of Mrs World 2020 and I am handing over my Mrs World 2020 Crown. I hereby terminate the Mrs World 2020 contract I entered into on November 4, 2019, with Mrs World Inc.”


Jurie was arrested and released on bail this month after a fracas at the Mrs Sri Lanka pageant in Colombo, where Jurie forcibly removed the winner’s crown, claiming the other woman was a divorcee and not qualified to win the title.

“Her voluntary resignation decision was made solely by Caroline herself,” Mrs World Inc said late on Tuesday, in a news release on social media.

Jurie was not immediately reachable for comment.

Kate Schneider of Ireland, the runner-up in the 2020 contest which Jurie won, will be the new Mrs World 2020, the organization said.
