The entire Yoruba movie industry is looking forward to the forthcoming birthday of veteran actor and movie producer, Alhaji Yinka Quadri. He will be 60 in a few week’s time. But he does not look that far gone in age. He has this refreshingly young look that makes him look 10years younger.

His birthday comes up in September and he is planning to celebrate it big. Citypeople asked him for the secret of his refreshing look and he revealed that it is the Grace of God. “I can’t claim to know why or to say this is what I do. lt is God.”
He is a devout Muslim and he says good Muslims attribute every thing to Allah.

His diamond jubilee celebration will hold on 6th September 2019 at Anchor event centre. Music will be by K1.

He has every reason to celebrate at 60. He is an accomplished theatre practitioner who has built a big brand in the movie industry.

He is one of the founders of the popular Odunfa Caucus which has produced close to 500 actors in the past 4 decades.

He has been acting since 1977 which makes it 42 years on stage. He and others like Ogogo and Abbey Lanre set up Odunfa Caucus in 1985 and the group has been waxing strong since then.

To mark his 60th he is set to officially inaugurate his new theatre school which he calls Yinka Quadri School of Drama.

Nwoko Attacks Wike Again – Asks Him To Account For Rivers Money

Published

on

A few days after calling for the expulsion of Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike from the PDP,

former Delta Lawmaker and billionaire businessman, Ned Nwoko has accused the fiery governor of squandering the Paris Club refund that accrued to the state and local government areas for self-gratification.

 

Mr Nwoko, who is the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senatorial candidate for Delta North, stated this in a statement on Tuesday.

 

Mr Nwoko has been engaging the Rivers governor whom he accused of instigating the crisis in the PDP for selfish reasons after failing to win the presidential primary of the party and also failing to secure a slot as a running mate to Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate.

 

Mr Nwoko had earlier described Mr Wike as a “nuisance” and called for the expulsion of the governor from the party.

 

Mr Nwoko described Mr Wike as a “failed obscure lawyer,”. He challenged the governor to disclose his source of livelihood outside political office which, according to him, Mr Wike “obtained through rascality and dubious tactics.”

 

“The Rivers state governor squandered the Paris club refund, which accrued to the state, diverted the entitlements that ought to have been paid the local governments, for self gratification. How did he utilise the money? He mismanaged it.

 

“Instead, Wike is gallivanting around the world wasting Rivers State’s money, chasing shadows and in the process 25 innocent kids died in the state hospital because of lack of electricity in the hospital. In a civilised society, Wike should have resigned. Indeed he would be prosecuted for the deaths of these innocent kids. This is unpardonable criminal negligence, yet a power-hungry governor like Wike is busy looking for another political office to continue pillaging public resources while his people suffer.”
