Some reports about the violence that erupted during the local government election primaries have pointed accusing fingers at Senator Remi Tinubu. They reckon she was behind the violence at APC Primaries.

The All Progressive Congress Primaries which was held at the Teslim Balogun Stadium was marred with violence after former Senator, Tokunbo Afikuyomi announced a consensus candidate for Lagos Mainland during the consensus voice voting for the18 Local Government that were allowed to return for 2nd term.

Lagos Mainland was not one of the 18 Local Government but in a bid to defraud the people, the Lagos Mainland delegation who was at the venue to vote was suddenly announced to be part of the consensus Local Government to pave way for the favourite of Senator Remi Tinubu and Hon Jide Jimoh.

The venue of the primary went beserk when Senator Afikuyomi was reported to have said "Lagos Mainland, Do you agree for Mrs Omolola Essien to return as your chairman?" and her people said yes while majority said No, and were told to leave the field.

The plan was said to have been hatched by Lagos Mainland Legislatures including  the House of Rep Member, Hon Jide Jimoh, House of Assembly Member Hon Oladele Adekanye (LADO) who walked the imposed aspirant to the field, H.O Mohammed and Senator Afikuyomi who is also From Mainland against the wishes of the Mainland APC Leader Hon Wale Oshun.

Immediately Senator Afikuyomi moved to do the same for Hon Jide Jimoh candidate in Yaba, but before he could finish mentioning the name, Yaba delegates ran into the field in protest to stop what happened to Mainland from happening to them.

Omolola Essien is a close friend of the Tinubus. She has served as Executive Secretary in Ikeja LG when Tinubu was governor. She went on to serve as Vice Chairman in Lagos Mainland courtesy of Tinubu for 2 Terms. In 2014 when the tenure of the chairman ended, she moved from vice chair to executive secretary again for 1 year and 6 months.

During this period, she was said to owe workers salary and was always saying "No money in council". There were no significant project or initiatives in the community during her administration as executive secretary.

According to a delegate who wish not to be named "The people do not want her, the excos do not want her, but Mrs Tinubu has vowed that no one will take Mainland from her loyalist Omolola Essien".

"It was in a bid to impose her that they presented her as a consensus candidate at the venue, Mainland has no consensus candidate".

Findings reveal that No one agreed with the leadership of Mainland for Essen to be consensus candidate.  It was alien and new to aspirants at the venue when she was announced as consensus.

Another delegate was heard saying "The power behind her were so arrogant not to even notify other aspirants, saying no one can stop her ascension to the throne"

News reaching the Palace about Nigerian groups and Yoruba Organisations in the UK churning out various invites to hold dinners, reception and award ceremonies with the Monarch in attendance; and demanding payment from Nigerians has not gone well with the Ooni, and he warns Nigerians to be careful who they give their money to and what they pay for.

The Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdul-Rasheed Adewale Akanbi, Telu I, has concluded plans to engrave and sculpt figures of prominent black personalities that contributed to modern culture in and outside Africa on stone

 The project will be similar to South Dakota’s Mount Rushmore accommodating engraved faces of four great past American presidents – George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.

 Briefing journalists in Iwo about the project, Oba Akanbi said there was no better time than now to celebrate black African leaders across the world for their immense contributions which he said had laid a foundation for modern culture and serve as a catalyst for growth and recognition.

 According to him, Mount Rushmore National Memorial park in the Black Hills of South Dakota, United States of America, which construction started in October 4, 1927, is a must-see vacation experience for everyone.

 The Oluwo, disclosed that those to feature in the project are the  likes of the late  black American civil rights leader, Martin Luther King, Jnr;  the anti-apartheid hero and first black South African President, Nelson Mandela;  the first Ghanaian Prime Minister and President, Kwame Nkrumah;  the first Prime Minister of Independent Nigeria, Tafawa Balewa; the leading figure of Nigerian modern nationalism and first President of independent Nigeria,  Nnamdi Azikwe; the late sage and leading Nigerian nationalist,  Obafemi Awolowo; the former Nigerian Army General and twice former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo; and former governor of Lagos State and Nigeria’s leading national political leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.


The first class traditional ruler, who noted that the project will be purposeful for its historical, social and economic values, maintained that “this will be the first time to use our key black figures to serve a multi-faceted agenda that will attract investment, jobs and opportunities at various levels for our people.”


He further said: “I can’t wait to see this project coming to fruition. Time has come for us to celebrate our black leaders of note in all parts of Africa and beyond for their immense contributions to the world development, peace and stability. I think many of them have been ignored for far too long and not given their due recognition. I want to create a space in a strategic Iwo mountainous forest to assemble and engrave faces of these great world leaders for tourists all over the world to come and listen to their stories to be told and re-told over and over again.


“It is important for our people, particularly  the youths to know what these figures stood and stand for in times of misrule and oppression. For example, Mandela and King, Jnr stood tenaciously against oppressive tendencies. Nkruma and Azikwe were rallying point for nationalist struggle and Obafemi Awolowo and Bola Ahmed Tinubu remain trail blazers, managers of human resources, producers of world class leaders and promoters of good governance as well as models for service to humanity. Obasanjo set standard for courage and known for taking far reaching national decisions while in government and is always available as mechanism for resolving conflicts around the world. Balewa as Prime Minister of Nigeria played important roles in the Africa's formative indigenous rule. He was an important leader in the formation of the Organization of African Unity and creating a cooperative relationship with French speaking African countries. So, we want to encourage our youths to learn and benefit from these key figures’ wisdom, skills and acumen.

 “It will also surely be a memorable experience for whoever cares to venture to come to the place we are about creating for these noblest among the nobles. We are using the project to bring to the consciousness of the world that the black Africa has the capacity to emerge a contending power with its enormous human resources with which some of the figures featuring in the project have laid a foundation for. We will also use the project to put Iwo on a world map, create opportunities for direct and indirect employment for my people and generate revenue for the state of Osun.”

 Oba Akanbi said he had started consulting great sculptors and carvers to participate in the design of the project, adding that the other phases, including constructions of shopping malls and hotels as well as other facilities to complement project will soon be unveiled.

The US Government has said it will act in accordance with federal judge, James Robart's temporary halt on Donald Trump’s travel ban, thereby restoring travel for refugees and for people from seven Muslim-majority countries.
The President however criticised the order on his Twitter handle yesterday in a series
of tweets: “The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!”
He also wrote: “When a country is no longer able to say who can, and who cannot , come in & out, especially for reasons of safety & security – big trouble!” He went on: “Interesting that certain Middle-Eastern countries agree with the ban. They know if certain people are allowed in it’s death & destruction!”
On Saturday night, he told news reporters: “We’ll win. For the safety of the country, we’ll win.”
The federal government’s request for an emergency stay was filed Saturday night with the 9th US circuit court of appeals.

Newest Mr & Mrs 
The wedding plans that was initially kept as a hush-hush affair has now been made public with the circulation of invites to family and friends; and the classy bridal shower tagged "Zahra's Tea Party' few days ago.
The 16th December Invite
It was said that the bride's mum, the first lady; Aisha Buhari had to speed up the union because of many elderly suitors bombarding them daily over Zahra. Some even swear the couple didn't really do an extensive courtship; but it seems nothing is coming in the way of the happiness of these two young couple set out to give marriage their best shot.
Pre-Wedding Shoot
Goodlooking Ahmed; fondly called Alhaji Mai, the budding oil baron, is described as fun loving but easy going and calm. He has gone through series of failed relationships with daughters of millionaires in the past; but always bent to get himself the wife of his dream. He is the younger brother of the embattled former wife of Mohammed Babangida; son of former Military Head of State, Ibrahim Babangida.
The handsome groom

He is the Head of Crude Oil Marketing at Oriental Energy Resources Limited. He has a Degree in Information Technology and an MBA in Internet security at the American InterContinental University, in Atlanta, where he served as the treasurer of the Student Union Government at the London Campus. His bride, Zahra is a graduate of University of Surrey, Guildford, UK and an Ambassador of various NGO initiatives.
Bride in waiting 

Beautiful Zahra 
One of Ahmed's popular quotes that his social media followers wouldn't forget in a hurry is: "If she’s against pre-marital sex, don’t indulge in pre-marital spending on her bro… Wise up" Could he have meant every word of that? Could he have practised that with his bride to be?

Oh well...we wish them a very happy married life!
