BREAKING: APC Lawmaker-Elect Dies In Plateau Hours After Election Victory

Breaking News


Ezekiel Afon, a lawmaker whose victory was announced only hours ago after he won the state house of assembly election as the representative of Pengana Constituency in Plateau State, has died.

He contested on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Bashir Sati, the APC Secretary in the state, confirmed the lawmaker’s death to NAN on Sunday in Jos, the Plateau State capital.

According to Sati, Afon died on Sunday afternoon after a brief illness.

“It is unfortunate that we lost Afon, one of the most dedicated members of our party and a committed lawmaker just after he was declared winner to occupy his seat again. Though he has been sick for a while, we received the news of his demise with rude shock,” he said.

Afon was first elected into the Assembly under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2015, but defected to APC in 2017.

Britain’s flawed dialogue with Sudan regime | Letters

The UK should call for an immediate political transition to end nearly 30 years of repressive rule, say eight signatories including Lutz Oette

We wholeheartedly agree with your editorial (7 March) stating that the demonstrators in Sudan calling daily for freedom and the rule of law “do not want a different version of this regime, or more conflict”. The problem is indeed the regime, not just a president indicted for genocide by the international criminal court and for whom, despite their public claims to support the ICC, many external actors seek a “soft landing” in the name of stability. Sudan is not stable for the Sudanese people.

Nevertheless, Britain has engaged in a flawed strategic dialogue with the regime. It has spearheaded the Khartoum process, a supposed partnership with the brutal and corrupt Sudanese regime to “manage” (in other words, to stem) migration to Europe. That process relies on the notorious rapid support forces, mainly former Janjaweed, which the ICC has implicated in war crimes in Darfur. Most Sudanese migrants are in any case refugees fleeing their repressive regime, including the very forces now tasked with capturing them.
