“Lagos State Begins And Ends In Tinubu’s House” – Olawole Oluwo, Ex-Commissioner Reveals |The Republican News

Ex-Commissioner, Mr Olawale Oluwo

Former Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources in Lagos State, Mr. Olawale Oluwo, has stated categorically that government in Lagos State starts and ends in the house of the leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Oluwo, who spoke at Afang Summit, organised by a Lagos-based investment banker, Mr. Joseph Edgar, also gave insight into the power play that denied former Lagos State Akinwumi Ambode his second term bid.

In his words, “Part of the things we were doing before they stopped our government was building terminals and bus depots all over the state. If completed, the project will take out completely those garages that have been there for decades. It’s those garages that are producing touts. There is no need for National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW).

“The NURTW makes N82 billion every year from Lagos, which is almost 10 per cent of our budget. So, these things would have eliminated the commercial danfo, the molue, tricycle, and okada and the same guys will be the ones running the new transport system. We never used to ride okada. So, why would okada be normal? this is one of the things we were trying to eliminate. The okada and agbero we see today were not in that future.

“I think the Lagos of three to four years may not be the Lagos of the last three to four years. Lagos will change; the change will be tough, rough, and I believe it will be bloody. It will be delusional to think you want to go and do a struggle and you are thinking of coming back. Until you are able to make coming back home a probability, you are not qualified to lead the struggle. You might be qualified to be a supporter or sympathizer of a struggle but you can’t be at the forefront, because nothing good comes easy. Do you think they will leave power and move on?”

On why the powers that-be moved against Ambode, Oluwo said, “Don’t judge a man you don’t know and you have never met before. People manipulate people to destroy people and they succeeded in doing that to Ambode.

“Ambode deliberately decided not to talk. So, it’s not balanced. One side was busy feeding the public with a negative story. I was not only a government official, I was also close to him and I was a member of his kitchen cabinet. I know the time he will talk will come. Ambode has made his own determination not to talk for now.”

On how Ambode became Lagos State governor, Oluwo recounted his meeting with Delta State-born businessman, Mr. Albert Okumagba who “told me that Ambode would be governor of Lagos in 2012 and I laughed. I told him then that even if I don’t know who would be governor of Lagos, I know those who would not be governor, that if they were sharing it for free Ambode was one of those who cannot rule Lagos. And I did not work for Ambode during the primary. I worked for the former Speaker Lagos Assembly, Mr. Adeyemi Ikuforiji, because he is my maternal cousin and I gave him my commitment in 2007 that I would support him in anything.

“I never knew Ambode until Okumagba introduced me to him in 2011 when I took a proposal to his house, and I think at that period, Asiwaju Tinubu had told Ambode that he would be governor of the state. So, Ambode is not the kind of guy they woke up from sleep to be the state governor. I didn’t believe it when I was told. I didn’t work for him during the primary because I did not believe Tinubu was behind him.”

Oluwo also spoke about the battle Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola fought before securing his second term.

According to him, “I don’t want to believe that Tinubu has the intention of making anybody a governor and then give him a second term. Fashola was not meant to go for the second term. There was a plan to stop Fashola; I was in Ikuforiji’s camp at that time and Asiwaju told him to start preparing. Whatever that meant, I don’t know, and Ikuforiji was the only one that came to contest against Fashola during the primary. So, people say probably it was because of Fashola’s popularity that earned him a second term. The answer is, ‘no!’ It had nothing to do with that. It’s just that that thing (federal might), Asiwaju did not have it in 2011. That was what made him succumb to Fashola going for the second term; he had it (federal might) in 2015. If the party had been in power in 2011, Fashola would never have gone back, because these guys (Fashola and Ambode) are technocrats. They don’t have any party of their own; they don’t have structure. PDP was ready to give Fashola the ticket before Asiwaju ran back.”

Oluwo also spoke on the Afang Summit’s theme, ‘The Economy: What Hope?’, saying, “Anybody can build a structure but a man that has access to state’s money to build a structure is different. If Ambode had known a year earlier that he won’t come back, it would have been a different thing, because they sold a dummy to him and to all of us but I didn’t believe them and I told my people that they were being deceived. Ambode did not fight because of Buhari. One, Ambode didn’t know that Buhari would be aloof and will not get himself involved. Two, he had too much respect for Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

“They sold Ambode a dummy, that the ticket will be given to him, but they just wanted to shake him and they were sending people to tell him, ‘don’t worry, you are too popular to be stopped.’”

Oluwo also spoke about the relationship between Ambode and Lagosians, noting, “There are things Lagosians didn’t like. Refuse became a disaster; they didn’t like the Land Use Charge, but that doesn’t affect the ticket of a political party. The refuse problem is not as serious as killings under Buhari. As long as you are on the right platform of a political party and they have money they can share, some Nigerians will sell their votes and look the other way and let you write the result. That is the level of our development at this time.

“Yes, mistakes were made on Visionscape, but in every reform, you are displacing vested interests. They would fight back and take you down or destroy the programme. Visionscape has its own problem, but they escalated it. But one thing is sure, Lagos will go back to Vissionscape reform; they may repackage it, do the naming ceremony for it but they will surely go back because that is the only way to manage waste and the transportation programme we put together.”

On what Ambode would have done differently if he had realised early that he would not get the ticket of the party, Oluwo said, “Forget about the party leaders; they don’t count. That thing they call Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC) is a toothless bulldog; they don’t have one per cent relevance in the scale of hundred. Ambode was too popular for them. So, what Abode should have done was to have gone to his principal to say, oga, anything you do, we are going into this second term together, give me my second term and I will give you everything you want’. The truth is that Ambode never had any issue with Tinubu; it was people that came in between them.

“Nobody has power in Lagos outside Bourdillon. If Ambode had given the impression that he was ready to fight, they would sit him down. It is about power and resources; power does not belong to these people. The lesson learned is that you can be given something on a platter of gold, but you may not sustain it on a platter of gold.”

Joe Igbokwe: “I Belong To No Ethnic Group, I Am A Nigerian” |The Republican News

All Progressive Congress (APC) Lagos State Spokesman, Joe Igbokwe

Spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Lagos State chapter, Joe Igbokwe, has described himself as a Nigerian and not belonging to any ethnic group.

Igbokwe, who stated this yesterday at the House of Assembly during the screening of the last batch of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s cabinet-nominees, lampooned those he described as ethnic bigots.

He hinted that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) vice presidential candidate, Peter Obi, was the reason for the attitude of easterners in the state during the last general election.

Lagos should take the lead and be more open to other ethnic groups by giving them political appointments, he asserted.

He said, “I’m proudly Nigerian; I don’t know about east, west, north or south. I have been in Lagos since 1985. My children were born here. It’s high time we started building this country.

“I get angry when people mention ethnicity. A young Nigerian lady was just made a minister in Britain. If I become the president of this country, nobody is going to fill form and put his state of origin. That’s the first thing I will do. It is when you take people for who they are that is when they will release their energy for the good of the country. One day, Nigerians will say, we are all Nigerians.

“The reason for the attitude of easterners in Lagos at the last election was because Peter Obi was on the ballot. If Atiku had won, he would be the vice president.

“If 70 to 75 per cent of a particular people dominate a region, they should be encouraged. If they don’t get council chairman, at least make them deputy. What Igbo people have in Lagos, they don’t have a quarter of it in their land. If you see anybody that is doing well in the South East, he must have a thriving business in Lagos.

Sausage Hawker Who Fed Prisoners On The Street Of Lagos Gets Stocked Shop, Free 2 Years Rent

Luck has smiled on 27-year-old Ugochukwu Ibere, whose story of benevolence went viral last year when he gave out all the sausages he was hawking to prison inmates being driven to a destination along Marina, Lagos, as Rite Foods Limited opened a shop stocked with Bigi drinks and cartons of sausage rolls for him.

Ibere’s act of kindness was discovered by Mrs Adenike Ajitena who sighted him during a traffic jam giving out all his wares to the outstretched arms of the inmates.

Speaking at the opening of the shop, Rite Foods Managing Director, Mr. Seleem Adegunwa, represented by Mr Adesewo Joseph, Regional Sales Manager, Lagos, said the company decided to reward Ugochukwu for giving out the little he had to help humanity.

“ This gesture is part of our Corporate Social Responsibility, CSR. Rite Foods Limited is opening a beautifully branded shop, painted, branded with a signage of his business name ‘Ugochukwu Ibere Stores.’ And the company is further starting him up in his business with tools such as deep freezer, generator, stabilizer, free 100 cartons of sausages and free 100 cases of drinks. This is in addition to paying the rent of the shop for two years”, Adegunwa said.

“ Aside our products being proudly Nigerian and truly worldclass, we are passionate about rewarding Nigerians who show exemplary feats such as Ugochukwu.

“ Mind you, this is not the first time we are doing such a gesture. We have other CSR projects we engage in. Again, this is not a one off stop event. This is a continuous effort.”

Ugochukwu told Sunday Vanguard during the event, “ If I was told that this will happen to me, I will not believe it. Now, I am a proud owner of not only a shop but also a warehouse.

“ I encourage everyone to give. You might not know where help will come.”

Speaking to Bella Naija after the story broke, last year, the Lagos hero, as he was tagged then, said, “A few years ago I worked as an apprentice in a cosmetics shop. I was supposed to receive a payment at the end of my term. But I was warned by other employees that the owner would find a reason not to pay me. He’d always invented reasons to fire his boys right before their payment.

“So I made the decision to quit. But when I told him, he dragged me to the police. He told them lies about me. He told them I’d stolen so much money. And they tortured me. They tied my hands and legs and they hung me from the ceiling. They beat me. I went deaf from all the slaps.

“ For ten days I was given no food. My fellow prisoners would share little bits of their meals.

“Honestly I was about to die. And I started to pray to God. On the tenth day, the guards decided that it would cause too much trouble to let me die. They told my employer: ‘After what we did to him, he must be innocent. Because he’d have confessed if he was guilty.’

“They released me into the world like a madman. And I’ve carried the memory ever since. I promised myself that if I ever found someone in a similar situation, I would help. So when I learned that prisoners pass down this road, I chose to hawk in this location. I waited until I finally saw the truck, and I pushed all my food through the bars. My fellow vendors couldn’t believe it. They asked me who would pay me for the food. I told them: ‘I didn’t do it for any man. I did it because of what God did for me.”

Tessy Igomu

Many were trapped as another building collapsed on Egerton Street, Oke-Arin, Lagos Island today, Monday, March 18, 2019.

The incident happened barely one week after a three-storey building collapsed on Massey Street, in the Ita-Faji area of Lagos Island, killing 20 people and injuring 40, including school children.

The ill-fated building is located on No. 57, Egerton Street, with many occupants, reportedly trapped.

According to reports, the collapsed structure had been marked for demolition by the Lagos State government.

Information emerging from the scene of the collapsed building revealed that officials of the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA), were demolishing a structure, which was among those earmarked for demolition, when a building beside it partially collapsed, injuring four occupants. The affected persons were said to have been rushed to the hospital for treatment.  (The Sun)

Okota Mayhem: AIG, Lagos CP, Eze Ndigbo, Oba In Peace Talk |RN

Perpetua Egesimba

 

In an effort to quell the election crisis in Ojota area of Lagos, the Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of Zone 2, Lagos and Ogun, AIG David Folawiyo and the new Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Mu’azu Zubairu, have engaged community leaders, the Osolo of Isolo, Oba Kabiru Adelaja Agbabiaka and Eze Ndigbo and Chairman Council of Ndieze Lagos State, Eze Christian, Uchechukwu Nwachukwu and other community leaders in peace talk.

Zubairu while speaking at the palace of Osolo of Isolo on Monday evening said, what happened on Saturday was a matter of concern for everybody, including the security agencies, the Oba and the residents.

According to him, everybody was aware of the issues in the area but not aware of the true facts. He said he was in the area on Saturday with the AIG and without knowing that what happened in Okota, the election was wonderful.

“They said three people were killed and nobody had seen one corpse anywhere in this area. The gentleman who was attacked was immediately rescued, rushed to the hospital and he is getting better in the hospital. But you can see the negative news being sprayed about this area which is not good for everybody.

“If there are issues of elections in Nigeria, it should not be in Lagos and if there is any problem of elections in Lagos, why should it be in Okota where you have peace-loving Nigerians living together?

“This is why the AIG and myself have come here to reemphasise the peaceful co-existence which I believe has been happening in this kingdom for so many years. This kingdom is not known for any violence or crisis. It is known for living together in peace; why is this area trying to get a new name now? A place of crisis and chaos?

The CP said he believed the meeting was going to cement the relationship between the communities in the area.

“It is going to tell our followers that we are all one, and that what we need is peace. On our own side as a security agency, we are going to tell the people that we are here for everybody. We assure them that we are going to give the necessary safe and secure environment for the remaining elections.”

He urged the leaders to allow people vote candidates of their choice. “Party A or B doesn’t matter because that is what is bringing the problem. That it must be a particular party must be erased from our minds. Let us focus on good leadership. Nobody must be compelled to choose a party or candidate of any party.”

Earlier, AIG Folawiyo had said they were lucky to have the community leaders in attendance at the meeting. He urged them to shun violence in the area, adding that the police do not have problems with the community leaders but need their assistance.

“We want them to assume leadership and let the people know that we are working for them. They should lower their guards, enjoy the grace, go and vote with discipline. We have also assured them of additional security. I think we are expecting good outing in the next round of election,” Folawiyo said.

Eze Nwachukwu said, the meeting with the oba was very necessary and was about what happened during the last election.

According to Nwachukwu, there was a disagreement and the Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba communities were ready to sort it out and agree among themselves that if such should happen, they should report to the police or the oba.

“What happened was that some hoodlums high jacked some polling units and suddenly somebody did not go to the police nor the oba and went ahead and took the laws into his hand. And nearly take someone’s life. Nobody died but there were some injuries.

“We have agreed that everyone should go home and talk to their people so that peace can reign. We have talked about peace for the Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba communities. We have agreed to be meeting from time to time to discuss our common problem for the interest of everyone.”

Oba Agbabiaka urged the Igbo leaders to always report any issues or disagreements to the police if they cannot come to him.

“Anytime you have any problem or any grudge with any people, you should please if you cannot come to me, call the police. You cannot take the laws into your hand or give judgement by yourself.

“Ndigbo, you see sometimes, it is good to show signs of appreciation. Majority of you know me, either you had your property through us or through the government.

“All you should know is that you are within Isolo and there is nothing that I do that I don’t carry you along. And that is what brought the idea of handing about four or five of you chieftaincy tittles.

“Also, the government means well for you. Luckily, in the last election, the House of Representatives winner in this area is your man, an Igbo, and the House of Assembly representative is also your man, two councillors are from you and also one supervising councillor.”

The oba said there was nowhere in Lagos State the Igbo could see such gesture, adding that the government of Lagos State was trying to look after them and therefore them to be grateful.

“Anywhere you are living, where you have your property, you are living better and your business is growing well, you should also try to make sure that there is peace and harmony. Nobody is ready to fight you; you are not a trouble maker, neither the Hausa, Yoruba or the OPC or any other person.”

The Oba also dispelled the rumours of death in his area, urging the Igbo community to support him and the police in making sure there is peace and security in the area.

“We need your support and you people should also know that you need our support too. Except you are telling us that your people who have been representing us in the House of Assembly, we have been making the mistake of allowing them to sit in that position.”

Others who were present at the meeting included Lagos House of Assembly member representing Oshodi/Isolo constituency II and the Chairman, Isolo Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Shamsudeen, Abiodun Olaleye among others.   (The Sun)

Afenifere Condemns Attacks On Ndigbo In Lagos, Blames Dirty Political Merchants, Their Thugs

Afenifere-on-attacks-on-Igbo

File Photo: Afenifere leaders

 

 

By Ike A. Offor, Editor

The Yoruba sociocultural organisation, Afenifere has unequivocably condemned the various attacks meted out on the Igbo in Lagos during the Presidential and National Assembly elections yesterday in Lagos.

The Republican News earlier on its Facebook page has published some gruesome commentaries from some Young Oduduwa Leaders eulogizing the political violence against the Igbo in Lagos. These young Yoruba leaders, who mostly are in diaspora, mainly in the UK, promised more deaths and to make more wives of the Igbos widows.

One of such commentaries stands out on its specifics and it came from one Samuel Olumide, who suggested that they should go out and kill the Igbo in large numbers.

One Prince Afefe Agbaye responded by telling him ” death awaits them especially in Okota…..my people don’t be sad, relax and see how their wives become widows.

There was also one case of alleged OPC leader, who reportedly was attacked by Igbo youths for carrying away ballot boxes and burning ballot papers in Ago Palace way in Okota, Lagos.

It is very deserving for the authentic Yoruba leaders to condemn such acts of violence and that they actually did, to set the record straight.

Below is the press statetment:

PRESS STATEMENT

Political Violence: Afenifere Condemns Attacks on Ndigbo in Lagos

Afenifere condemns in the strongest terms the political violence visited on Nigerians of Ndigbo extraction in Lagos during the Saturday Presidential elections.
Dirty political merchants and their band of thugs apart from engineering political disenfranchisement of Ndigbo, went ahead to visit violence on them and burning their votes en masse.

The political vandals they used were said to have been calling themselves OPC but our checks with the genuine leaders of the group have shown that the deragend elements had no affiliation with the OPC known by Afenifere.
We frown seriously at the failure of the security agencies to give adequate cover to Ndigbo in the affected communities as these thugs went berserk carrying out the instructions of their sinking political godfathers.
We want to assure our Igbo Brothers and Sisters that the bond of friendship the Afenifere and Ohanaeze Ndigbo have built particularly under the dynamic leadership of Chief John Nwodo remains strong and will not be broken by the nefarious activities of a few strange children in our midst.
We are already in discussions with Ndigbo leadership on the matter and we appeal for calm as these political vandals are only engaged in death kicks .
We call on the security agencies to give adequate security covers to Ndigbo in subsequent elections as we encourage them not to succumb to intimidation and harassment by political vampires .
Our historical connectivity with Ndigbo will survive the Saturday madness and the perpetrators will be shamed eternally.

Yinka Odumakin.
National Publicity Secretary.

JUST IN: Hoodlums Burn Ballot Papers, Cart Way With Ballot Boxes In Lagos |RN

Ismail Omipidan

 

Hoodlums, numbering about 30 were said to have carted away ballot boxes and voting materials in four polling units in Okota, Ago Palace Way area in Isolo council.

Although, they had left before our reporter got to the scenes, there were visible signs of destruction, including broken bottles and canopies as at the time of the visit.

At Nwanchukwu Drive of the area, eye witnesses said the hoodlums came in motor cycles and overpowered the unarmed police men deployed to the area.

They were said to have cause havoc in polling units 035, 036, 037 and 038. They were said to have led by a renowned ‘area boy’ in the vicinity, known simply as “Bullet.”

“Bullet is well known in this area. In 2015, he beat up voters here. This year too, he did the same. He said he knew we would not vote for them. This election has to be rescheduled because our votes must count,” one of the residents said.

Before our reporter left the area, some ballot boxes were said to have been recovered. A domestic observer who declined to give her name, confirmed the development.           (The Sun)

Peter Obi Campaigns In Lagos, Shuts Markets As Crowds Receive Him |RN

A large number of traders, artisans and residents shut down their businesses to receive the Vice Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming poll as he stormed Lagos on Wednesday on a campaign visit.

Our correspondent gathered that the former governor of Anambra State while on his tour, reiterated his commitment to supporting and running a pro-business administration if elected into office.

Mr Obi said he made his impromptu visit to markets in Lagos to interact with the traders and to understand their challenges first hand. He said he what to know what they go through sustaining their outfits in these harsh times.

Our correspondent reports that the visit assumed a carnival-like stature as Obi entered the popular Ladipo Market and Computer Village in Munshin and Ikeja respectively. The traders virtually shut their shops and the streets to catch a glimpse of him with some hailing his alias, Okwute (Rock) in salute.

“We need leaders who can change the face of things at the moment, a trader who identified himself as Martin said. “No one is happy with the bad state of the economy despite what we are currently told by the present administration that things are improving. We need a leader who can ease the harsh realities we are facing at the moment and the pair of Abubakar/Obi should be given a trial.”

Obi was said to have told the traders that the economy was after his heart and he was interested in seeing that things begin to work again once he Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is elected into office.

As governor of Anambra State, Obi ran an anti-waste government which drastically cut down on the cost of governance, starting with selling off the state’s Governor’s Lodge in Abuja, so that he could fund education in the state.

Because of his radical initiative, Anambra State moved from its 28th placement on the ladder in the education sector across the country and mercurially ahead to occupy the Number One on the log.    (The Sun)
