Call for revolution is a call for mutiny – APC aspirant forum

APC

The All Progressive Congress (APC) Aspirants Forum in Plateau State has said the call for revolution by Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoleye Sowore was a call for mutiny.

It therefore, urged citizens of the state, irrespective of political, ethnic and religious affiliation, to disregard it.

The forum described the call for revolution as a deliberate attempt to incite the public against a democratically elected government led by President Muhammad Buhari .

The group, at a press conference in Jos, led by its Chairman and former member of the Plateau State House of Assembly, Dicket Plang, stated that while lawful assembly was the right of every Nigerian citizen, Sowore and his ‘cohots’ had gone too far when he stated that certain structures of government would cease to exist during the revolution.

“The corporate existence of Nigeria is non-negotiable and as a group, we will not relent in proffering advice to the leadership at both the state and national level that would add value to good governance. We believe that is the best way to go as a people and indeed, Mr. Sowore,” the group stated.

It explained that the only type of revolution known to the laws of Nigeria was the ballot box which Sowore had attempted but lost in the March 2019 elections, urging him to instead wait for another opportunity to attempt to effect change through the ballot box.

Daily Trust reports that there was no revolution protest in Jos as the Plateau State Police Command is yet to lift its ban on protests in the state.

COVID-19: Scammers dressed as doctors, set up fake Coronavirus testing sites, where they charge people $240 and steal their DNA

Local officials said a self-proclaimed medical marketing company set up makeshift testing sites outside various churches in Louisville with workers dressed head to toe in hazmat gear. They claim the scammers charge $240 a test and steal people’s DNA and personal information.

At one site in Louisville, Kentucky, scammers dressed as doctors were offering fake coronavirus tests out of a convenience store parking lot in exchange for $240. They were also collecting credit card information and people’s social security numbers, equipping them to steal their victims’ identities.

Local authorities told the NYT that 100 people fell prey to the scheme before the scammers fled

Metro Council President David James and Louisville advocates have been hunting down who they call fake COVID-19 testers, reported WDRB.

“It’s really Medicaid fraud, is what it actually is. There is no reason that you should spend $240 dollars for a COVID test,” James said. “And they’re using the same gloves on Person A that they used on Person B, that they used on Person C.”

The officials said the group may be from Illinois as they believe the scammers are the same people who claimed to test people’s DNA for diseases last year.

“They’re the scum of the Earth and they’re preying on the poorest of the poor, and I’m going to do everything in my power to get them the [explicit] out of Kentucky,” James said.
