Speaking further on the support she has received so far, Funmi Ayinke recounted the massive crowd that besieged her rally ground in Akure without paying a dime.

‘’Women come to me that they want to pay me back with their support because I have been a source of hope for them. Women vote more in Ondo state and I have that confidence that this is my time, I have sown the seed, it’s time for harvest.’’

‘’In the last rally we did, I didn’t pay any women to attend, It was just an open invitation and we shut down the whole of Akure, this means people know what they want and they appreciate the fact that we have the courage to come out. Without woman, there is no vote, no nation.’’

The screening process ended with cheers from the committee, congratulatory messages from officials at the party’s secretariat and prayers of victory from women in the secretariat premises.

Sahara Weekly Reports That Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Friday led members of his cabinet to the Agege home of the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Ajayi Obasa, on a condolence visit over the demise of Alhaji Suleimon Atanda Obasa.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alhaji Suleimon Obasa, father of the Speaker, passed away on Tuesday at 83 with Governor Sanwo-Olu describing the incident as shocking especially as he was hale and hearty a few days before his demise.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“On behalf of the government and the people of Lagos State, I want to extend my sincere condolences to you and the entire Obasa family.

“No matter how old one’s parents are, one can never want them to go. So one can imagine the shock that the incident came with, but we have the belief that it was the appointed time.

 

“This is something that all of us owe life. We only pray that we live long and leave good legacies.

 

“It is clear that having produced you, your dad actually left a good legacy. So the onus is now on you to carry on with his good works as a community leader and one that brought together the entire family,” the governor said.

 

Sanwo-Olu also commended the Speaker for his effective leadership of the Assembly and his service to Lagos. He prayed that the Speaker will continue to have the capacity to lead the legislative arm as he had always done.

 

In his response, Dr. Obasa described the House as the Governor’s support base adding that the legislative arm is poised to ensure the success of the current administration.

 

Obasa said the visit by the Governor and his cabinet is a confirmation of the love, cooperation, unity and friendship that radiate in government.

 

“The truth is that I hold you in high esteem always. And because we have the same father in Asiwaju Tinubu, we have always worked for the same goal which is service to the people of Lagos.

 

“I always say there is no amount of money one can acquire that would sustain one better than what one has done in one’s community,” the Speaker said noting that Agege has experienced massive progress because of the Governor’s collaboration and intervention.

 

“Like I continue to say, we should continue to be particular about the people, not ourselves because there will come a time when we will leave office and people will make reference to what we have done.

 

“Mr. Governor, you’re my brother anytime and day. Whatever we achieve in the House of Assembly is because you support us. We are there to work for your success and that is why as part of our religion, we must pray for you, the deputy governor and every other person before ourselves. That’s the only way one can grow,” Obasa added.

Sahara Weekly Reports That It may be tasky for Nigerians in the diaspora to be able to identify what a property entails if they have not been in Nigeria for a while. However, when property features and neighborhoods are highlighted in a property listing, it helps with making informed decisions.

 

 

 

 

Why nigerians in the diaspora should first look out for features of a property before investing by Dennis Isong 

 

 

 

 

Nigerians in the diaspora considering investing in property back home should prioritize assessing the features of a property thoroughly for several reasons:

1. Ensuring Value for Money:

The neighborhoods of the property’s location significantly influences its value. Proximity to essential amenities like schools, hospitals, markets, and transportation can enhance a property’s attractiveness and market value.

 

The dimensions of the property features, including the number of rooms, bathrooms, and overall layout, should match the buyer’s needs and justify the price.

 

 

Evaluating the condition of the property, including the quality of construction, age, and any need for repairs or renovations, helps ensure that the investment is sound and that there won’t be hidden costs post-purchase.

2. Maximizing Rental and Resale Potential:

Properties with modern amenities (e.g., reliable water supply, power backup, security systems) and features (e.g., parking spaces, green spaces) tend to attract higher rents and better resale values.

 

Understanding Lagos real estate market can help investors choose properties that are in demand, ensuring they can quickly find tenants or buyers.

3. Avoiding Scams and Fraud:

Cross-checking the advertised features with the actual property helps verify the legitimacy of the deal. Scammers often misrepresent properties to deceive buyers.

 

Ensuring the property has a clear title and all necessary documentation prevents legal disputes and confirms ownership.

4. Personal Satisfaction and Suitability:

For those planning to use the property personally, it’s crucial that the property aligns with their lifestyle and preferences. Features like the number of bedrooms, kitchen size, and backyard space can significantly impact living quality.

 

Features that allow for future expansion or modifications can be crucial for long-term satisfaction and adaptability.

5. Investment Stability and Appreciation:

Properties in economically stable and growing areas tend to appreciate more reliably, providing a secure investment.

 

Areas with ongoing or planned infrastructure developments (like new roads, public transport, or commercial hubs) often see a boost in property values over time.

HOW CAN YOU CONFIRM THE FEATURES AND NEIGHBORHOODS OF A PROPERTY LISTING IN ABSENTIA?

 

1. Ask the realtor to do a video.

 

2. Send a trusted person to confirm.

 

3. Do a video call for confirmation.

 

4. Ensure what was listed match with what’s shown in the video.

 

5. Check the map.
