Published

on

The Presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party, YPP, Moghalu Kingsley on Saturday highlighted reasons why President Muhammadu Buhari and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar boycotted the presidential debate.

Abubakar, who arrived the venue of the debate in Abuja, had worked out of the event after Buhari failed to attend.

However, Moghalu insisted that both presidential candidates boycotted the event due to arrogance.

Speaking during the debate, the former Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, deputy governor said both candidates can’t answer questions to be asked.

According to Moghalu: “Arrogance: They believe Nigerians will always come to them.

“They have a sense of entitlement but not a record of service to the people of Nigeria.

They cannot answer the questions to be asked tonight.”

Republican Lawmaker Andy Ogles Files Articles Of Impeachment Against Kamala Harris

Published

on

US Republican Lawmaker Andy Ogles has introduced two articles of impeachment against Vice President Kamala Harris, citing her alleged failure to enforce immigration laws.

Ogles accuses Harris of deliberately neglecting her duties as “border czar,” particularly in regards to border security and immigration law.

The first article of impeachment highlights Harris’ supposed inaction in addressing the border crisis, while the second article alleges a “breach of public trust.”

Ogles claims that Harris knowingly misled the public and Congress about President Joe Biden’s physical and cognitive health, sparking concerns about her integrity and ability to perform her duties as Vice President.

Ogles’ move to impeach Harris marks a significant escalation in the political tensions surrounding the Biden administration’s immigration policies and the Vice President’s role in addressing the border crisis.

The articles also claimed that Harris had been incompetent in discharging her duties.

Ogles’ first attempt to impeach Harris last year was unsuccessful and stalled in the judiciary committee.

The lawmaker’s second trial comes 48 hours after Biden withdrew from the presidential race and endorsed Harris to take his place for the Democratic Party’s ticket.

Biden’s shaky debate performance against former President Donald Trump last month, which heightened concerns over his age and mental alertness, was the catalyst for Democrats’ calls for him to end his reelection campaign.

The Democrat has not formally announced Harris as the party’s flagbearer. If nominated, she would be the first Black and South Asian woman to be a major party nominee.

On Monday, the presidential hopeful raised more than $81 million in donations to her cause.

The amount is believed to be the largest 24-hour fundraising in the history of the US presidential campaign.

Ogle’s impeachment calls have not received support from any member of Congress.

Kamala Harris Breaks Record With Over $81m Donations, Day After Biden Quit Race

Published

United States Vice President Kamala Harris has achieved a remarkable fundraising milestone, raising over $81 million in just 24 hours. This impressive feat comes on the heels of President Joe Biden’s withdrawal from the presidential race. The amount raised by Harris is believed to be the largest 24-hour fundraising haul in the history of US presidential campaigns.

In comparison, former President Donald Trump, the Republican Party candidate, raised over $50 million in 24 hours following his felony conviction in the New York hush money trial. Meanwhile, President Biden had gathered $38 million in four days after his debate performance against Trump, which was deemed unimpressive by some.

Harris’ campaign has reported that the new total includes donations from hundreds of thousands of first-time donors, injecting hope into a Democratic Party that had been facing uncertainty after weeks of trying to persuade Biden to step aside. The 81-year-old President had initially insisted on remaining in the race despite growing concerns about his ability to run.

However, in a surprise move on Sunday, Biden announced his withdrawal from the race, citing the interests of the party and the country. He threw his support behind Harris, urging citizens to put their confidence in her. Harris has promised to win and earn the nominations from her fellow Democrats. Although she has not been officially announced as the party’s candidate, polls indicate that she is the most favored to secure the Democratic ticket.
