Real reasons Seyi Makinde , Abiola Ajimobi fight deepen

Image result for seyi makindeThe rift over government vehicles allegedly taken away by former Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi’s aides deepened on Monday as Governor Seyi Makinde accused his predecessor of distorting facts on the issue.

Addressing reporters after observing Eid prayers in Ibadan, the state capital on Sunday, Ajimobi faulted Makinde’s claims that his aides went away with government’s vehicles.

He explained that those who went away with government’s vehicles paid for them according to laid down procedure, adding that it was the standard practice.

Ajimobi said it was a needless move to rubbish his administration.

His words: “If we are talking about vehicles, I think papers have been written. When you are in government, there are policies to be taken. There are decisions taken. We’ve taken the decisions that anybody using vehicles at that time should pay and take it away. And that was what we did. Go to every state and even the Federal

Government, there is nowhere in the world that people will work and not take away their vehicles when they are leaving.

“So, let them go and check many of those people in government, the civil servants. When I moved into the Government House, Agodi, I didn’t see any furniture. They took the whole curtains, furniture, chairs, tables, televisions, home appliances up till the last table spoon. Ask Governor Seyi Makinde if they took anything from the Government House, when he got there. But you know why? It was because I worked up till the last day in office.Image result for abiola ajimobi

Why F G may ban Tekno for singing again over Lagos Nude Dance

Image may contain: 1 person, closeupFans of Tekno may not see him singing again after his Lagos nude dance video displaying on a van was arrested penultimate week.

Fujiipop reports have it that there are strong indications that Federal Government will not take lightly any act of debasement of humanity and the pride of Nigerian women as it vows to use some persons as scapegoats.

In a reaction to the controversial music video by a popular musician, Augustine Kelechi, aka Tekno, with scenes of four nude women dancing in a moving van on the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge in Lagos, federal government through its National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), a parastatal in the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture, said Tekno would be used as a scapegoat “to teach others a serious lesson.”
The artiste, in the four-minute video was seen throwing money perceived to be dollars at the young nude women. The government expressed disappointment that despite ongoing investigations into the anomaly, Tekno went ahead to release the offensive video.

The official music video for his song, Agege, which was released on Thursday, showed Tekno in the moving van performing to the camera with the half-clad women dancing seductively.

According to the Director-General NCAC, Otunba Segun Runsewe said him, the NCAC was committed to exposing proponents of such kinds of offensive sights and videos in Nigeria, while security agencies would be briefed to place Tekno on their watch-list “because his conduct is a threat to national security.”

Runsewe said he got hundreds of calls and SMS from Nigerians both at home and in the diaspora who queried why such immorality would be allowed to happen in Nigeria.

He said, “We commend the police for arresting Tekno for the shameful misconduct. The same person who was granted bail on health ground has gone ahead to release the nude controversial video. We are now warning him to desist from this shameful conduct which is not part of our culture.

“No single person is bigger than Nigeria; whether he likes it or not, we are going to use him as scapegoat to send a strong signal that this government does not tolerate nonsense and immorality, but discipline which is our moral principle.

“Since the offensive Tekno scam video came to limelight, I have received hundreds of telephone calls and SMS from Nigerians at home and others in United Kingdom, United States, Canada and other parts of the world querying why such anomalies would be tolerated in Nigeria.

“Now that he has released the shameful video when investigation is still ongoing, we are going to inform security agencies to placed him on their watchlist because his action is a threat to national security and bad influence on Nigerian youths.

“We are committed to exposing proponents of this kind of offensive sights and videos. We warn that nudity is not part of our culture and should not be tolerated. The Federal Government will henceforth fish out such clubs for nude dancers across the country for their promoters to face prosecution.”

Section 134 (a) stipulates that an indecent act in a public place makes both parties engaging in the act liable to imprisonment for two years.

But Section 136 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015, however, stated that any person, who commits any act of gross indecency with another person in public, commits an offence and is liable upon conviction to three years imprisonment.

It would be recalled that the Lagos State Signage and Advertising Agency had since suspended the advertising agency, which owned the display truck that was used in shooting the video, until the completion of its investigation.

BBNaija update: Khafi’s team threatens legal action against Sun UK newspaper

#BBNaija: KhafiReports reaching Fujiipop has it that Khafi’s team has threatened legal action against The Sun UK over the recent publication claiming she might be sacked by the Metropolitan Police over her sexcapades with her fellow BBNaija housemate, Gedoni.

Khafi’s management says their team wasn’t contacted by the media house for her own side of the story before they published such a report that can be injurious to her personality.

 

The management is demanding a retraction of the story and an apology within 48 hours.

 

Read the statement below

ATTENTION! ATTENTION!! ATTENTION!!! The attention of Khafi’s management has been drawn to a publication by The Sun UK  of Tuesday, August 13, 2019, titled “LOIN OF DUTY Met Police ‘poster girl’ faces sack for ‘having sex’ on Nigerian Big Brother after being told not to take part”. This brazenly sensational and defamatory outburst by The Sun UK is written in poor taste without considering the ethics of journalism which seeks balance and objectivity.

At NO time did The Sun UK send a mail of inquiry to Khafi’s official email which is blasted across her social media platforms under active management to confirm or refute the claims in the publication.
Khafi’s side of the story is deliberately and conveniently omitted to sell a pre-conceived narrative while responses from “outraged colleagues” and “other papers” riddle the publication.
This comes from a repressive culture of shaming and characterizing women for their sexual decisions and life choices.

We find The Sun UK’s publication repulsive and damaging to the image and livelihood of our client.
Khafi is a proud black female police officer who prides herself in her work and has dedicated her youthful years protecting and serving with her many skills which include the ability to speak at least five international languages.

We demand an immediate retraction of the publication by The Sun UK and a public apology to our client Khafilat Kareem within the next 48 hours.

Legal options are also being considered at this time.

Thank you.

Signed
Management
