APC leaders left stranded in Adamawa State as Gov. Bindow shunned all visitors coming to pay Sallah homage


Chieftains of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa State were stranded in Government House, yesterday, as Governor Mohammed Umaru Bindow shunned all visitors coming for Sallah homage.



It was the first time in the history of the state a sitting governor would fail to receive visitors on Sallah homage in Government House. Bindow left the state capital about 10 am for his hometown, Mubi, when party chieftains and other institutions were waiting in Government House to pay the Sallah homage, as is the tradition in the state.



According to reports, the Government House was deserted by officials, including security operatives, while the politicians were seen discussing the development in angry tones.  One of them from Gombi Council, Alhaji Musa Abubakar, said that the governor would soon give detailed account of his action to the electorate saying, 'we will all meet him at the polling units and we are going to use our votes to show him the way out of Government House. This has never happened in this state that a governor will refuse to see visitors for Sallah homage'.

Scary News About Your Cellphone

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
