2019: Tambuwal Meets Fayose And PDP Delegates In Ekiti State(photos)

Sokoto State Governor, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal, and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant has taken his campaign train to Ekiti State. He was received by Ayodele Fayose, Governor of Ekiti State, his deputy, Olusola Eleka, and other party stakeholders in the state on Friday.

According to Tambuwal, his visit to Fayose was part of efforts to “share his vision for a greater Nigeria”.

Fayose took shots at President Muhammadu Buhari in Ado-Ekiti at the event where he claimed the president was old and dilapidated.

According to a press statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Ekiti State Governor, Mr Idowu Adelusi, Tambuwal said the likes of Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State were needed to take back the country from those that had hijacked it.

Fayose faulted the Buhari-led government for being insensitive to the feelings and plight of Nigerians.

“They have refused to give Ekiti our last tranche of the Paris Club refund and seized two months’ budget support money meant for us. APC is in power to oppress not to develop the nation.

We have N11.8 billion remaining in the Paris Club refund not paid as they paid others. Because of Osun poll, they released money to them and three others. Buhari is not only old but outdated and dilapidated and those packaging him are doing that for their own benefits,” he said.

“I won’t be insensitive to the feelings and plight of Nigerians if elected the president of this country.

I also promised to run an all inclusive government as the president. It is very important to provide dynamic leadership for our country.

We are not ethnic jingoists. The government in power is desperate and are doing everything outside the law to ensure they remain in power.

“We need a great and united country and that is possible if we choose a leader that has a vision of one Nigeria. I have traversed the length and breadth of this country and have an idea of what the people want.

I am in a good position to respect the sensibility and sensitivity of the people,” he said.

Tambuwal said he supported restructuring and that fiscal federalism must be allowed for every section to grow at their own pace.

He also added that he would approach that issue by calling all parties to a round table for robust discussion of the issue at stake.

Emmy Awards 2018: ‘Game of Thrones’ gets a big win, and yes, there was a proposal

Peter Dinklage wins best supporting actor in a drama series for HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” which returned to the ceremony after being ineligible last year.

Dinklage, who also won the trophy in 2011 and 2015, thanked the show’s creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss before joking, “I cannot walk down the street anymore.”

The actor, who plays Tyrion Lannister on the fantasy series, also thanked his wife, whom he said he forgot to thank in a previous acceptance speech, and his co-star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, a fellow nominee.

Plus, Dinklage thanked “Game of Thrones” writer George R.R. Martin “for creating this darn thing.”

“I’m really grateful to be here. But it’s bittersweet,” he said, tearing up.

“The person that would be most proud at this moment would be my mom, and she passed away just two weeks ago.

Part of my heart is broken, and I don’t think it will ever be repaired. But she’s in me.”

Weiss added that his mother said to always hold onto sunshine. That’s when he shocked everyone by addressing his girlfriend.

“Jan, you are the sunshine in my life, and Mom was right, don’t ever let go of my sunshine,” he said.

“You know why I don’t like to call you my girlfriend? Because I want to call you my wife.”

She looked absolutely shocked. After gasping, she walked up to the stage, as he said, “I didn’t ask yet.”

“This is the ring that my dad put on my mom’s finger 67 years ago,” he told her. “Jan, I want to put this ring that my mom wore on your finger.”
He dropped to one knee, as the audience erupted in cheers.
“Will you marry me?”
She said yes.
After they shared a passionate kiss, he said, “Thank you to the Academy!”

Mulaney didn’t seem to mind: “I still think you made the right decision,” he told her from the stage.
