2023: Atiku opens up on using Peter Obi’s image for campaign

The spokesperson for the Atiku, Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, Daniel Bwala has denied that his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is using the face of Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, to campaign in some northern States. Bwala made the clarification on Thursday while fielding questions on the Arise Television Morning Show programme. It was reviewed in a video circulating online which showed bags of rice bearing the face of Obi with the logo of the PDP. However, Bwala has come out to say that it did not emanate from the PDP. He said, “That is not true to have emanated from us. Why I am saying that is because if you go to Bauchi now, people are even reporting that the Governor of Bauchi State is with the G-5. So, could he be behind that? Certainly no.”

“It’s very frustrating – Graham Potter given condition to remain as Chelsea boss

Glenn Hoddle has explained the only condition owners of Chelsea would allow Graham Potter to remain in charge of the Stamford Bridge outfit. Chelsea remained in 10th position in the Premier League after their 1-0 defeat to Manchester City on Thursday night. Riyad Mahrez came off the bench to score the only goal of the night for the Etihad outfit and reduce the gap between them and top-placed Arsenal to five. There are question marks over Potter’s future at Stamford Bridge. Potter was hired as a replacement for Thomas Tuchel in September 2022 after Boehly sacked the German. Chelsea spent around £280m on new players ahead of the 2022-23 campaign, and Sutton has suggested Boehly may decide to sack Potter any time soon. “It’s very very difficult and frustrating for him [Potter]. I think he should be further forward than he is now. “But when you lose two of your main players within two or three minutes, it’s tough for him. “But I think he’s nowhere near where he thinks his best team is. He’s nowhere near it. “I think …
