The Action Alliance (AA) has called on the police to arrest its suspended National Chairman, Mr Kenneth Udeze, for alleged impersonation and running the party against its constitution.
The acting National Secretary of the party, Mr Eli Moses, made the call while speaking at a news conference on Monday in Abuja.
The Nigeria News Agency recalls that the National Think Tank Committee, the party’s highest decision-making body, had, on Aug. 10, ratified the suspension of Udeze and the Secretary, Mr James Vernimbe, for alleged gross misconduct and anti-party activities.
Moses described the national convention, held in Abuja on Sept. 7 by Udeze, as illegal and criminal, saying that Udeze was impersonating as the party’s national chairman when, indeed, he was under suspension.
“We are calling on police to arrest him (Udeze) for impersonation because that meeting was meant to mislead Nigerians.
“Somebody under suspension is not supposed to call for any meeting. What Udeze is doing is unacceptable to the party.
“Whatever he must have said or any comment made against the integrity of INEC should be disregarded because he is not speaking for AA. He is on suspension; so whatever he says is personal.
“His calling for a meeting on Sept 7, having been suspended, is still part of the criminal offence,” Moses said.
However, Udeze told NAN that he was recognised as the national chairman of the party by INEC.
He said that he called for the party’s national convention in a legitimate manner, adding that he gave INEC the statutory 21-day notice before he held the meeting. (NAN)

Admiral Ekwe lauds Navy for successes in National economy
Ekwe said the command under the leadership of the Flag Officer Commanding ENC, Rear Adm. David Adeniran, had recorded successes in the reduction of illegal bunkers and refinery operations, oil theft, pipeline vandalism, smuggling and piracy.
According to Ekwe, the efforts of the ENC had led to the arrest of numerous vessels and the seizure of petroleum products as well as metric tons of crude oil.
He added that the command had also destroyed illegal refineries to dissuade illegalities in the maritime sector.
“The ENC has performed excellently well. Therefore, I encourage all personnel to keep it up and have an operational reflection and ponder on the operational antecedents recorded so far as well as challenges faced by the command in the past in order to proffer the way forward,” he said.
He explained that the “Ceremonial Sunset”, also known as the “Retreat Call”, is a solemn ceremony which involves the bugle call as well as hoisting and lowering of flags which signal the end of a day and beginning of a new day.
Retired Admiral Ekwe noted that series of activities were lined up to celebrate the Navy week which include distribution of palliatives and personnel protective equipment as well as commissioning of sickbay at the Headquarters of ENC.
“I am also aware that other activities that marked the Navy week were the commissioning of the remodeled Otiko and Saidu Girls’ Hostel at Nigerian Navy secondary school, Borokiri, and 20 capacity Boys’ hostel in Nigerian Navy secondary school Akpabuyo.
“Over the years, I have closely monitored the activities of the ENC under Rear Adm. Adeniran and I discovered that the command has conducted various operations and administrative functions.
“I have observed with joy, the number of attendees as well as the number of Guard of Honour and Navy band that participated in the skeletal parade. All these are in conformity with the Federal Government directives on measures to curb Covid-19 pandemic”, he said.
In his goodwill message, Real Adm. Taiye Imam, the Chief Staff Officer of ENC, said the ceremony was part of the activities marking the 64th anniversary of the Nigerian Navy

Australian government launches national domestic abuse inquiry
The Australian government has announced a national domestic violence inquiry, giving survivors a chance to “have their voices heard.”
Marise Payne, the Minister for Women and Minister for Foreign Affairs, recently tasked the parliamentary Standing Committee on Social Policy and Legal Affairs to produce a report on measures to prevent violence against women and their children.
The Inquiry into Family, Domestic and Sexual Violence will also examine the impact of the coronavirus lockdown on the prevalence of domestic abuse, with several frontline services having reported a surge in demand for help.
“We must listen to the experiences of the sector during this unprecedented time and learn how governments, services and the community can better support women and their children, particularly when home is not a safe place to be,” Payne said in a statement.
On average one Australian woman is killed by her current or former partner every week.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), about 25 percent of Australian women have been subjected to emotional abuse by a current or former partner since the age of 15 and about 20 percent have experienced sexual violence.
The inquiry was announced despite a Senate inquiry in May finding that “another lengthy, public inquiry” into domestic violence was not necessary “at this time” and would be of “limited benefit.”
Anne Ruston, the Minster for Families and Social Services, told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) that the new inquiry was referred to the committee to “ensure there was broad scope to canvas all the relevant issues.”
“It’s been clear from the public feedback to the recent Senate inquiry that there is a real desire from survivors, friends and family of victims, sector leaders and the community to have their voices heard on this issue,” she said.
“This parliamentary inquiry process will provide that opportunity.”

National Museum and National Gallery of Australia reopen after COVID-19 closure
The National Museum of Australia and the National Gallery of Australia reopened on Tuesday, more than two months after they closed amid concern of COVID-19.
“We are excited to be able to lift the covers off the art and once again share our collection and exhibitions with everyone,” said National Gallery Director Nick Mitzevich.
“Art has been a salvation for many people in these uncertain times and we know immersion in art and culture will play an important role in bringing our local and national community back together,” he said. “I am delighted the National Gallery will again be open to the Australian public to provide inspiration, joy and the opportunity for reflection.”
Safety measures are taken which include timed entry, a 20-person limit in galleries, sanitizer stations throughout the building, additional cleaning and the closure of small exhibition spaces.
Similar social-distancing restrictions are imposed by the National Museum as well.
“The power of ideas, objects and history to nourish our lives and help us make sense of our experiences underlies the work of the Museum and we look forward to re-connecting with you in person and sharing our collection and exhibitions,” he said.
The National Museum of Australia will showcase an exhibition about the landing of research vessel, the Endeavor, at east coast of Australia by Captain James Cook 250 years ago. It was scheduled to open in April, before lockdown was announced.
Sri Lanka friendship organizations support China’s decision on national security legislation for HK
Five Sri Lanka friendship organizations on Monday slammed foreign interventions in China’s Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), and voiced support for China‘s efforts to introduce national security legislation for the HKSAR.
“We are pleased and encouraged to see the National People’s Congress of China has adopted (the) decision to make Hong Kong national security laws, which will definitely enhance peace, stability, and prosperity of Hong Kong and the whole region,” the five organizations said in a joint statement.
“We believe the new national security law for Hong Kong will not only abide by but also enhance ‘one country, two systems’ and guarantee the legitimate rights of (the) people of Hong Kong,” the statement added.
The statement was signed by the Sri Lanka-China Friendship Association (SLCFA), Sri Lanka-China Society, Association for Sri Lanka-China Social and Cultural Cooperation, Sri Lanka-China Journalists’ Forum and the Sri Lanka-China Buddhist Friendship Association.
Meanwhile, SLCFA President Ananda Goonatilleke was quoted by local daily The Island as saying that some Western countries were trying to “intimidate China when it is trying to address increasingly notable national security risks in

‘s threat to alter a “full range of agreements” that the country has with Hong Kong was “ominous” and followed a trend of Western interventions in the internal affairs of other countries, including Sri Lanka, Goonatilleke added.
