Tinubu speaks on owning that creates PVC and card readers

APC chieftain, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has reacted to a report that he owns ACT Technologies, a company responsible for printing permanent voters cards, PVC, and card readers.

The company which reportedly manipulated results in the 2015 elections is said to supply materials to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

Reacting to the report that he is among the owners of the tech company, Tinubu through his spokesman Tunde Rahman denied the claims via a statement seen below.

“If lies were sand, this story would be a desert. Perhaps the only thing this story manages to get correct is the spelling of Asiwaju’s name. However, the story is but an unfortunate and crude attempt to malign Asiwaju’s name. Asiwaju has absolutely no relation to, or interest in, Act Technologies Limited. He had never even heard of the company until the PDP (and its cronies in the media) started this campaign of calumny a few days ago,”

“Moreover, Asiwaju has never been involved in the supply of card readers, voter registration and accreditation frameworks or any other materials or services to INEC. Never.

“Let us be clear in this matter. If any political party was in control of INEC’s procurement practices in 2014/2015, it would have been the one in control of the federal government at that time. Asiwaju never asked for, nor did he receive, anything or any contract from Jonathan’s government. As incompetent as his administration was, even President Jonathan would not have sat idly by while important electoral contracts were being handed over to his most implacable political foe. As often happens with fiction concocted by amateurs, the application of a little common sense causes the entire story to fall apart.

“Even the technological aspects of the report are fantastical and unfounded. The whole thing simply makes no sense from a technical point of view.

“The report only makes sense as part of a concerted effort to attack Asiwaju. Why the PDP and their media boosters fear him so much, we leave for them to answer. But it is odd that they expend so much time and energy manufacturing falsehoods against someone whose name will not even appear on any ballot.

“This story is simply another effort by those opposed to President Buhari and the APC to justify their plans to distort the elections by alleging that the APC government is illegitimate and was rigged into office.

“The only problem being that the facts do not support their claims nor their rationale for cheating. These people are incurable. They do not rig because they were once victimized by rigging. They rig because rigging is not only in their blood, it is their blood.

“Such errant nonsense has no place in our national discourse”, Tinubu stated.

‘Game Of Throne’ finale streaming blocked in China over its trade war with Trump

Published

Film watchers in China were not allowed to see the final episode of Game Of Throne on Sunday, over the nation’s growing trade war with the US and President Donald Trump.

Instead of finding out who ended up sitting on the Iron Throne, Chinese ‘Thrones’ watchers received a message informing them of ‘transmission medium problems.’

The message was posted by Tencent Video, the subsidiary of Tencent Holdings Ltd, which has had exclusive streaming rights to the premium cable network’s content in China since 2014.

‘We will notify you of another broadcasting time,’ Tencent said in a more detailed communique posted on its Weibo social media account one hour before the last episode was supposed to air.

HBO told the Wall Street Journal on Monday that the China Thrones blackout wasn’t a technical issue on the company’s part.

An HBO spokesperson confirmed Tencent blocked transmission of the series finale.

The Verge reports that thousands of Chinese Thrones fans have vented their frustrations on Weibo, China’s largest social media company.

Many threatened to cancel their Tencent accounts if their monthly subscription fees weren’t refunded.

The debacle is the latest fallout in the intensifying battle over US trade tariffs placed on Chinese goods by the Trump administration.
