Governor Will keep his word on Alagbole

ALAGBOLE- Just a few hours ago, Azuh Arinze, a Publisher and Author, cast doubt on the ongoing efforts by the Dapo Abiodun-led administration to give Ogun State residents in Akute-Ajuwon-Alagbole-Olambe axis of Ogun State a cause to smile by repairing their road. The seasoned journalist, who like many media professionals has been living there for so many years, makes the following observations based on experience: “I have lived in that axis long enough to know and understand the game usually played by them (governors). Once elections are approaching, they move caterpillars and some idle “men at work” experts to the terrible and horrible roads. These men are usually busy doing nothing and making worse a bad situation with their artificial creation of perennial gridlock. As you drive to work in the morning, you will see them going up and down. In the evening, while returning from work, instead of seeing results, you will still see them faffing around and constituting even a bigger nuisance.”

And then he added this clincher: “Governor Dapo Abiodun just began his days ago. I don’t know how it will eventually pan out, but like I wrote in the title of this piece, I am very, very skeptical about what he began there some three or so days ago. I drove past the road today and except I want to deceive myself, my conclusion is “dis na still de same old story and style.” However, I hope I’m proven wrong this time round. Until then, make all of us still dey watch the free cinema.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Naturally, many of those who reacted to the post published on his social media timeline toed a similar path, saying that governors were very fond of gimmicks during elections. They made reference to Amosun who came around in a jamboree and dropped supposed workers on the site, only to vanish into the thin air after criminally raising the people’s hope.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The naysayers can’t be blamed: their scepticism is rooted in decades of empty political promises. But then, do not our people say that the patient eyes will inevitably see the nose? We urge our esteemed members of the Fourth Estate to exercise a little patience, shelve their cynicism, and judge Governor Abiodun by his record since assuming office as the fifth democratically elected governor of the Gateway State. It is true that previous governors shirked their responsibilities on that road but Prince Dapo Abiodun, cognizant of his mission in history and intent on fulfilling it, has in the last three and a half years given ample indication that he is woven by a different fabric and does not play around with his word.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a human, he is naturally imperfect but he has never shied away from the lofty standards to which he usually aspires, has never played games with the people’s emotions or scoffed at their pains, and definitely has no intention to do a bad job at Alagbole and the adjoining communities. Being an Omoluabi, he knows that his word is his bond, and those who know him can say whatever he promises to do to the bank, knowing his sincerity of purpose, honesty of mission, commitment to excellence, and abhorrence of hypocrisy and artifice. The plain, simple truth is that in a short while, there will be motorists plying the roads under reference and appreciating Governor Abiodun for keeping his word. If you have travelled on the Shagamu-Abeokuta road or the Ijebu-Ode Epe road, not to mention the countless inner-city roads that dot every part of Ogun State, and been to places like Ilaro, Atan-Agbara-Lusada, etc, you cannot but agree with this observation.

It will be recalled that when Governor Abiodun came on board, he came with a clear vision to make palpable difference in the lives of the Ogun populace. He began work on the road projects he met and rolled out a scheme of road repair, rehabilitation and construction across the state.

Two months ago, some editors visited Ogun State and intimated the Governor with the plight of the people in Alagbole and other parts of the state and the governor promised to intervene. And he has, not only in that area but in so many others, including Sango-Ota. The Akute-Alagbole road is being done as promised. The Governor did not promise dualisation: what he promised was the repair of a part of the road. He also acknowledged that the previous administration never did its homework thoroughly before embarking on the planned construction, demolishing houses for nothing. Governor Abiodun has divided the work into three sectors to be done simultaneously. He should be given the benefit of doubt. He’s not Amosun; he means exactly what he says. Indeed, when the economy of the state improves, much more work will be done.

YOU MUST OVERCOME THE NEED TO BE LIKED -Apostle Suleman lectures

YOU MUST OVERCOME THE NEED TO BE LIKED

If you have always been a people pleaser and always try your best to be liked by everyone, and do not like it when people are mad at you and always your mouth shut and letting people do and say whatever and walk all over you, Apostle Johnson Suleman has a word for you.

YOU MUST OVERCOME THE NEED TO BE LIKED
-Apostle Suleman lectures

The servant of God at the Omega Fire Ministries (OFM) worldwide warns you should never try to make people like you. “Deal with fear,” he instructed in his latest homily. “The person who already likes you doesn’t need it, and the person who dislikes you doesn’t deserve it,” declares the ‘Restoration Apostle, warning that you risk being overwhelmed by anxiety and fear if you desperately need to be liked by others to be happy.

“It is fear. Fear is so terrible that it takes some components to crush fear; love, power and sound mind, including courage. To be free from fear, guard what you hear. When the devil throws fear at you, gather yourself and respond in faith,” Apostle Suleman lectures.

 

There are people who are incapable of saying no to other people; they struggle terribly to overcome the need to be liked by other people. But Apostle Suleman’s warning suggests the keyword to be ‘need’. It indicates that it’s perfectly okay to ‘want’ to be liked by other people. However, issues arise when it becomes a need, because you would do all sorts of dumb things just to crave acceptance in order to be liked. The famous preacher says the need to be liked by other people can only compound the problem by breaking your commitment to yourself.

 

 

It doesn’t matter if that means ignoring your values, lying to yourself, or pretending to be someone you’re not; as long as it results in you being well-liked by others, it sounds good to you. But Apostle Suleman points out the result: “Jesus Christ and other great people in world’s history never achieved the impossible goal of being universally liked. These exceptional people lived their truth regardless of whether or not everyone liked them,” he asserts, instructing that you’re better at focusing on living your truth than trying to be liked by others.

People will dislike you because of how you look, dress and talk. People will avoid you or pretend to fall asleep when you’re talking, for reasons you may never know. But, Apostle Suleman cautions you to commit to consistently living who you really are because, he says, if you don’t, no matter who you are, you will always say yes to people who don’t like you for whatever reason.

Local sources report that the soldiers were responding to a distress call from Roro, Karaga, and Rumace communities when they were attacked. An army captain, identified as Adamu, was also abducted during the ambush. There are conflicting reports on whether Captain Adamu was subsequently killed.

This unfortunate incident has fulfilled the prophecy of Nigerian prophet, Primate Elijah Ayodele which he shared earlier in the month of April.

According to the prophecy which was captured in a video, the man of God warned the government of Niger state to be careful of attacks on military formations, government houses and governor’s convoy. He called on the authorities to watch out for any of these attacks.

These were his words:

‘’There will be a deadly attack on military formation. They must be careful so they won’t attack their government house and the governor’s convoy. They must watch on this in Niger’’

Just one week after the prophet sent this warning; bandits laid an ambush against soldiers and killed them.

There are several prophecies on the internet that Primate Ayodele has shared regarding the security situation of Nigeria. He also foretold the biggest calamity involving the brutal murder of soldiers in Delta state, kidnap operations in Nigerian schools, and several other things that have been fulfilled while some are yet to come to pass.

…Over wrongful sale of Intercontinental Hotels

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sahara Weekly Reports That The Milan Industries Ltd, owners of Intercontinental Hotels, Lagos has filed Eight Hundred and Fifty Billion Naira (N850,000,000,000.00) damages claim against Assets Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) over wrongful sale of Intercontinental Hotels Lagos.

 

 

 

 

 

Milan Industries claims N850 billion damages against AMCON

 

 

 

 

 

 

The firm had earlier filed a suit against AMCON and Polaris Bank challenging the sale of the hotel over Milan’s alleged indebtedness to Polaris, following a banking relationship between them. AMCON allegedly acquired Milan’s alleged indebtedness from Polaris, and in a bid to recover the alleged debt, purportedly sold Intercontinental Hotels – the security for the loan, to a third party. However, in December 2022, the Court of Appeal, Lagos Division, set aside the sale of Intercontinental Hotels Limited, by AMCON as being unlawful.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The claim is contained in a suit against AMCON at the Federal High Court Lagos in which Milan Industries is claiming that as a result of the unlawful sale and takeover of its hotel, it has suffered an estimated loss of more than Eight Hundred and Fifty Billion Naira (N850,000,000,000.00 ), which sum, it is now seeking from AMCON as damages in court.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The firm in its statement of claim, said “despite lodging an appeal against the judgment of the Court of Appeal, AMCON in clear abuse of court process, is also attempting to recover the unsecured part of the debt, which it estimates to be Forty Billion Two Naira (N42,000,000,000.00 ). Remarkably, at the time the hotel was sold to the third party, it was valued at Eighty-five Billion Naira (N85,000,000,000.00) whereas Milan’s indebtedness stood at Fifteen Billion Naira (N15,000,000,000.00) only, at most.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According Milan Industries, “To date, AMCON and Polaris have not informed Milan how much the hotel was purportedly sold for, and whether as a result, the debt is fully liquidated or not. The directors of Milan Industries Limited are vigorously contesting the bankruptcy proceeding commenced against them by AMCON.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a result, the directors of Milan Industries have already instructed the law firms of Prof A. B. Kasunmu L.P, Ahmed Raji & Co., and A. B. Sulu Gambari & Co. to represent them in court.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“The bankruptcy proceeding is a grand design by AMCON to divert attention from the monumental damages they have inflicted on Milan Industries Limited which they, along with Polaris, must surely pay for”, the firm stated in its statement.
