APC USA warns protesters against disrupting Tinubu’s visit to UN Assembly



The United States chapter of the All Progressives Congress has warned some Nigerians against a planned rally ahead of President Bola Tinubu’s visit to the United Nations General Assembly on September 20.

Tinubu is expected to address the 78th Session of the high-level UNGA General Debate at the UN headquarters in New York.

He will be the fifth African leader to speak on day one of the gathering, according to the list of speakers released by the Office of the General Assembly President.

The President’s proposed visit has however generated mixed feelings with some Nigerians in the Diaspora saying they will resist his coming.

Reacting in a statement issued on Tuesday, the Chairman of the United States chapter of the APC, Prof. Tai Balofin, claimed that a suspended party member, Adesegun Labinjo, is allegedly masterminding the rally.

While stating that the matter has been reported to relevant authorities, Balofin called for calm and warned against tarnishing the country’s image on the global scene.

The statement partly read, “It has recently come to our attention that certain individuals are planning to stage a rally during President Tinubu’s visit to the United Nations. This planned rally directly responds to a gathering planned by a suspended individual, Mr. Labinjo, who claims to be the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, on September 20, 2023.

“The repercussions of Mr Labinjo’s rally have given rise to concerns of potential disruption and chaos from the Obidients who plan to put the reputation of the president into disparage. In light of this situation, we wish to inform the public and all concerned parties that we have taken swift action to notify the appropriate authorities regarding this unnecessary and potentially disruptive plan.

“The Chairman of APC USA, Prof. Tai Balofin, has issued a stern warning to those considering disrupting any sideline events or the visit of President Tinubu. He emphasizes that any individual who violates the law will face arrest and prosecution to the fullest extent of the legal framework.

“We fully recognise and respect the principles of freedom of speech and association, which are fundamental to a democratic society. However, we urge all citizens to exercise these rights responsibly and in a manner that does not tarnish the reputation of our President.

“It is important to remember that the election results and legal proceedings have been settled, and it is time to accept the outcome gracefully. Another opportunity for political participation will arise in the upcoming 2027 elections, and individuals are encouraged to participate through legitimate means.”

Battery Drain Alert: Tips to Extend Your Phone’s Life



Are you tired of your phone battery draining faster than ever? It’s not just about how you use your phone, but also about underlying factors affecting your battery life.

Here are the top 5 hidden factors behind your fast-draining phone battery:

1. Overcharging: Overcharging your phone can significantly reduce its battery lifespan, causing it to drain faster. “Avoid overcharging, as it can damage the battery’s internal cells”.

2. High Screen Brightness: High screen brightness is a major battery drainer, especially when used for extended periods. Dimming your screen or using auto-brightness can help conserve battery life.

3. Resource-Intensive Apps: Resource-intensive apps like social media and games consume battery power rapidly. Closing unused apps or using low-power modes can help mitigate this issue.

4. Poor Battery Calibration: Poor battery calibration can lead to inaccurate battery level readings and faster draining. Calibrating your battery regularly can help resolve this problem.

5. Outdated Software: Outdated software can cause battery drain due to inefficient power management. Keeping your phone’s software up-to-date can help optimize battery performance.

To maintain your phone battery’s performance and extend its lifespan, follow these simple tips:

– Charge your phone correctly: Avoid overcharging and keep your battery level between 20% and 80% if possible.

– Adjust your screen settings: Lower your screen brightness, use auto-brightness, or turn off adaptive brightness.

– Manage your apps: Close unused apps, use low-power modes, and limit background data usage.
