Why Ahmed Gulak was Sacked

The former Special Adviser to the President on Political Affairs, Alhaji Ahmed Gulak has stated reasons on his exit in office while addressing the press shortly after the announcement of the termination of service was made.

Speaking to news men, Gulak said his termination of duty had nothing to do with any disagreement with the Akwa Ibom State Governor and Chairman of the PDP Governor's Forum, Chief Godswill Akpabio, but his desire to vie for the office of governor in his home state, Adamawa.

Ahmed Gulak further stated that the people of Adamawa State are tired of the way Murtala Nyako is running the government of Adamawa State hence his desire to become the next governor.

It will be recalled that the former aide to the President was recently in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital to commission the South South office of Goodluck Support Group believed to be administered by factional/aggrieved PDP members in the state opposed to the ruling faction.

In the event, Gulak announced to the public that there will be No Imposition of candidates by the PDP in 2015 as it is against the tenets of democracy which guarantees freedom of choice by the people and against the stand of Mr. President as the leader of the party and that of the National Chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Adamu Mua'zu. He advised prospecting aspirants for 2015 elections under the umbrella of the PDP to go back and consult the party leaders at the grassroots as PDP candidates for the 2015 would be selected based on open, credible, fair and transparent electoral contest.

The action infuriated the State Governor and the State Chapter of the PDP, hence, a strong warning to the Special Adviser after an enlarge EXCO meeting of the party held in Uyo last week.

Part of the communique raised after the meeting reads thus;

(f)The meeting condemned the ignoble and contemptuous role of Alhaji Ahmed Gulak, the Special Adviser to the President on Political Affairs, who visited the State recently, threw all known protocols overboard in purporting to inaugurate a sectional and unknown Support Group in favour of our dear President without bothering to pay any courtesies to the State Leadership of the Party.

The meeting advised Mr. President to caution his Aides who are bent on causing disaffection in various states of the Federation purporting to act on behalf of the Villa and further advised Ahmed Gulak to sort out PDP problems in Adamawa State, deliver Adamawa State to the President before rushing to safe territories like South South Nigeria where President Jonathan requires no campaign.

(g) The meeting warns Alhaji Gulak to desist from further interference in the affairs of the State as we do not need the assistance of any outsider to campaign here for Mr. President.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.
