E-transmission of results’ll stop rigging, money politics, political blackmail – Sheikh Gumi

Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, Kaduna-based Islamic cleric has said the E-transmission of election results would stop some electoral irregularities in Nigeria.

But when Hwang Dong-hyuk, its creator, first pitched the idea about heavily indebted contestants competing for money in deadly versions of children’s games, studios balked. “It was too bizarre and people thought it wouldn’t be a money-making film,” Mr Hwang told IndieWire, a website. Today the series is a global sensation. On October 12th Netflix said that the series had racked up 111m viewers in its first 28 days, making it the streaming service’s most

The Northern Elders’ Forum (NEF) has expressed concern over the comment of the Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) on the 2023 Presidency.

The forum was reacting to PANDEF’s statement that the North should wait for 2031 before producing another president.

DAILY POST recalls that the National Publicity Secretary of PANDEF, Ken Robinson, in a statement issued in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, on Thursday, noted that it would be unwise for the north to think of clutching onto the presidential seat in 2023 after the two tenures of President Muhammadu Buhari.
