Umahi: More governors to join APC – Uzodimma

Published

Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, has claimed that more of his counterparts will join the All Progressives Congress (APC), from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, following in the footsteps of Ebonyi’s David Umahi.

There were reports that Umahi had concluded plans to pitch his tent with the APC ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Speaking to journalists after a closed-door meeting with the Chairman of the Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee of the APC, Governor Mai Mala Buni, and other members of the committee, at the APC National Secretariat, Abuja on Monday, said more governors would soon dump PDP for the APC.

“If you recall when I addressed you here a couple of months ago, I told you that the moment I resume office in Imo State as the Governor, that the impression and the perception of our party in South East will change and the resultant effect will be that more credible individuals and Governors will even join the party.

Of course, I will be very glad and it will be my joy to welcome a governor and more governors, not only him, we are still talking more governors to join,” Uzodimma said.

Today, I am being vindicated because we are hearing it and I’m sure a few hours from now we get a confirmation that one of our best will be joining the party and (he) is the Governor of Ebonyi State.

Alexis Ohanian: Serena Williams’ Career Is Now At Stake

Published

on




Three years after marrying tennis icon Serena Williams, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian has made a startling confession about his wife’s career.

 

 

In the pilot episode of American sitcom How I Met Your Mother, one of the characters poses an obscure theory about the perfect relationship.

Aptly labelled “The Olive Theory”, it’s believed partners are a great fit if they have vastly contrasting opinions on a particular topic. For example, if one person hates olives, then ideally the other loves them.

With this in mind, it should therefore come as no surprise that Serena Williams’ husband hated tennis before they met.

Speaking to CNN, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian conceded he never would have attended a tennis match if not for his wife’s career.

“I hated tennis for a long time, until I met my wife and tried to learn it,” Ohanian said.

“I am always a sports fan, and when I watched a final closely, I understood the privilege I had.

“Now I appreciate the world of tennis — I understand how the world of tennis is a difficult and intense world.

“In the world of technology we work really hard, but we have been naive since the work done by a professional tennis player, both physically and mentally, is absolutely on another level.”

Williams and Ohanian have been married since 2017, and the American superstar gave birth to their first child Alexis Olympia in September of that year.

Despite his initial preconceptions on the sport, Ohanian and his daughter are regularly spotted in the front row of tennis events, cheering on Williams.

“I sat in the front row to see everything Serena does, to understand her role in the world and I discovered how different she is from others,” Ohanian said.

“I know how much she has worked for everything, not only as a woman but also as a black woman.

“At the same time Olympia will never question all the great work her mother has done, and one day I will explain it to her, but I want to make her understand that I do my part too.”

Williams is a 23-time grand slam champion, one title shy of the all-time record held by Australian great Margaret Court.
