The widely acknowledged custodian of African cultures, who equally is the traditional title holder of Erelu Oodua of Aye kingdom, Erelu Tinuade Mabel Onaneye has on Friday, 5th of March, 2021 enjoined Southwest people and government to see the ongoing food blockage from North to South as a good opportunity to revisiting farming which has long been neglected. We are not lazy, we know how to do farming.

 

She made the statement from her base in Texas, United States in a press release she signed and made available to the general public following the blockage of food items from North to South by The Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff & Cattle Dealers of Nigeria and Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria who instructed their members to stop the movement of food items from the North to the South.

 

‘Contrary to the lamentations of my people in the South, this development to me is a blessing in disguise. It’s an opportunity for us to re-visit the long-forgotten farming activities which were our major occupation before the discovery of oil. It is the only way to avoid being dependent on the North for food items!’ Erelu opined.

 

Erelu posited that both the people and government at all levels in the Southwest must all act fast and work together to achieve this goal. She says it’s a huge insult for Northerners to believe they could starve Southerners to death by refusing to supply the food items when the South has more fertile land and forestry resources than the North.

 

In conclusion, she calls on Yorubas and the Southwest Governors to begin to see this blockage as a reawakening of historical pastime as farmers and grow the Yoruba nation. By doing this, the government would be creating jobs for youths while also generating revenue to the purse of their respective States.

NTDC boss, Folly Coker”s 2nd Marriage Crashes

Published

on

The second marriage of Folorunsho Coker, the Director-General of the Nigerian Tourism Development Company, (NTDC), to Aisha Rimi, has reportedly crashed.

 

Just when everyone thought Coker’s second marriage to Aisha Rimi, a member of Rimi Partners, an Abuja -based law firm specialising in corporate legal services, business advisory services and government relations, would outlast his first, it ended up making a dry run while it lasted.

 

Coker was first married to Folake Akindele-Coker, the boss of foremost fashion design label, *Tiffany* *Amber* . Folly Coker as he is fondly called, ended the marriage, which produced three children, abruptly. Still dazed by the manner with which her marriage ended, Folake retained her ex-husband’s name and still does to this day. While she is still single, Folly (as he is fondly called) moved on quickly and jumped into another marriage with Aisha. Aisha also used to be married to Lateef Bello Osagie, a sibling of Hakeem Bello Osagie, a former Chairman of United Bank of Africa (UBA). No sooner had her marriage to Lateef ended than she hooked up with Folly and married him. They resolved to give their second attempt at marriage their best shot and make their new ‘partnership’ work.

 

In fact, early in the marriage, Folly and his wife managed to keep the union together, but seeing that they could no longer continue to patch things up, they both finally decided they had had enough of each other.

 

What could have led to breakup of their marriage?

 

Pundits are however of the opinion that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission investigation of Aisha’s alleged involvement in the diversion of the sum of N3 billion from the account of Lagos State Government Number Plate Production Authority, when Folly was the managing director, was allegedly the beginning of the end of their marriage.

 

Recall that the EFCC in an affidavit had alleged that the investigation of the fraud was based on an intelligence received by the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit of suspicious transactions on the account of Rimi and Partners.

 

According to the EFCC, there were “heavy inflows” in excess of N3 billion from LSGNPPA into the account of the company owned by Aisha Rimi, who was still married to Coker at the time.That perhaps,was the catalyst that set the tone for the marriage break up as Aisha was said to have revealed many things to the anti graft body.

Presently, close friends and associates of the family are watching with keen interest what the outcome of this break up will result to.
