Breaking: Alex Acosta resigns as US labor secretary following plea deal scandal with wealthy financier, Jeffrey Epstein

President Donald Trump has said his labor secretary, Alexander Acosta, is stepping down following criticism of his handling of a plea deal with the wealthy financier, Jeffrey Epstein, who is awaiting trial on charges of sex trafficking underage girls.

Trump announced the news with Acosta by his side at the White House, before leaving on a trip to the Midwest. Acosta said stepping aside was the right decision.

Acosta was the US attorney in Miami when he oversaw a 2008 non-prosecution agreement with Epstein. Epstein avoided federal charges and served 13 months in jail. The fresh charges filed this week against Epstein by federal prosecutors in New York had put Acosta’s role in the 2008 deal under renewed scrutiny.

Court upholds suspension Of Sowore From AAC

The suspension of Omoyele Sowore as the National Chairman of the African Action Congress, AAC, and Malcom Fabiyi as the Deputy National Chairman, has been validated by a Federal High Court which sat in Abuja on Friday.

Also ruling on the suit which was instituted by Dr. Leonard Nzewa, Justice Inyang Ekwo affirmed his (Nzewa) appointment as the Acting National Chairman of the party following the suspension of Sowore and Fabiyi for six months at its meeting held on March 27, 2019 which led to the court showdown.

The court which restrained the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from recognising the suspended chairman pending the determination of the motion on notice, backed the judgement with Sowore's failure to personally depose to the counter-affidavit filed against the suit that was brought against him by the acting National Chairman of the AAC.

Reacting to our correspondent’s inquiry, Sowore said in a message on Friday, “We’ve commenced the process of appeal already. The judgment won’t stand.”

Ed Sheeran confirms he and his long-term girlfriend Cherry Seaborn are married

Ed Sheeran, who reportedly tied the knot with his long-term girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn in December at their home in Suffolk, England, in front of 40 friends and family members has now confirmed they are married.

On Friday, the English singer revealed Cherry is his wife in a new interview on YouTube with Charlamagne The God to promote his new album 'No.6 Collaborations Project.'

When Charlamagne Tha God asked about his more personal lyrics on "Remember the Name," featuring Eminem and 50 Cent, Sheeran referenced the verse that says, ''Watch how the lyrics in the songs might get twisted / My wife wears red, but looks better without the lipstick.”

“It was actually before me and Cherry got married and I knew that we’d be married by the point that the song came out,” said Sheeran, 28. “[I thought] Someone’s gonna hear that and be like, ‘Oh, they’re married!’ I didn’t know how that would be construed, but obviously it’s already come out.”

Sheeran also referenced the nuptials when discussing the lead single from the record, “I Don’t Care” featuring Justin Bieber.

“Bieber just got married. I’d just got married,” he explained. “That song is about being at an industry event with the woman you love, or the person you love, and kind of being like, ‘F— this, let’s just have fun ourselves.’

He added, “It was actually Cherry’s idea, because she was like, ‘Oh, why don’t you get Bieber? Like, he’d be perfect for this … it just fits.'”
