Her efforts to empower the less privileged people and support the effort of government in every area of endeavour has been acclaimed to be one of the most outstanding among the lots, who follow same passion as hers. Regardless of religion, tribe, ethnicity Dr Siju Iluyomade has continued to give her all to better the life of many, using her Arise Women Foundation to intervene in so many areas of human needs.

 

 

This trait of hers, many agreed, resonated to the birth of the Non-Government Organisation (NGO). Not only that, Siju, as she’s fondly called, is known to have nurtured charitable hopes and determination to help women efficiently thrive in life. She institutionalised the Handmaidens Women in Leadership Series (HWILS) to build intentional leaders.

It is also of note that, despite Siju being the ever-supportive wife to Pastor Idowu Iluyomade of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), City of David and Arise Women being a faith-based NGO, she has not discriminated in giving succour to the less privileged in the country regardless of their ethnic, tribal or religious affinity.

WHO IS AFRAID OF “MONIMICHELLE”

Published

on

They are blackmailers! They are blackmailers!! These are the words of some close friends of Mr. Ebi Egbe alias Moni Love, who is the Chief Executive Officer of Monimichelle Sports Facility Construction Ltd.

 

Currently, the sports giant is handling some high profile jobs across, the globe for reputable clients who are enticed by the quality of service(s) provided by the firm.

 

The CEO of Monimichelle is an Ijaw son who is an indigene of Ogboinbiri in the Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa state.

Miffed by the near lack of development in the acclaimed “Jerusalem of Ijaw of Ijaw Nation”, Mr. Ebi Egbe abandoned his cosy office and accommodation at the eye-brow area of Ikoyi in Lagos to settle down in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa state capital.

Why? Egbe said emphatically “I want to develop our place, because Yenagoa is our city”, adding that “I also want to give back to my state”.

 

This is the kind of passion, the Ajegunle born sports facility construction expert has for his native Ijaw Land, but of late some “elements” are bent on rubbishing his enviable reputation for a “plate porridge”.

Monimichelle Sports Facility Construction Limited is handling the Sampson Siasia football turf currently, and the job done so far has no doubt attracted commendation from across the globe.

 

In an event recently, the Bayelsa state Governor, Hon. Seriake Dickson poured encomium, thus “We are proud of the quality of job done by Monimichelle because it is a world class pitch, am particularly happy because Monimichelle is an indigenous contractor who has made the Izon nation proud”.

 

It is worthy of note that the chairman of the Nigerian National League Mr. Chidi Okenwa during his facility tour of the pitch, commended Monimichelle for the “delivery” of the pitch.

 

According to him “I am happy to be here to see for myself because this is the best pitch in the country that the NNL teams can play in the session.

 

The NNL has approved a provisional permit for all Bayelsa based teams to play their home games at the Sampson Siasia turf, a development football fans are happy about.

This weekend the darling team of the state, Bayelsa United FC will be playing the first NNL game at the turf.

 

While plaudits are being poured on this worthy indigenous company some persons are busy putting spanners to work to drag the enviable name of the company and Mr. Ebi Egbe to the mud for their parochial and selfish reasons.

 

A close associate of Mr. Egbe, Mr. Ebizimor Numa who spoke to our correspondent on the development noted with dismay that “this pull-him-down” inclinations of some “disgruntled” elements cannot stand the test of time.

 

Numa added that “We know their antics; they cannot pull-down or destroy the enviable reputation of Monimichelle because the company has record unbeatable in Africa and the world over.

 

Speaking further he emphasized that “Monimichelle is not a politician who takes and not give back to the people, he is a business man who has given to his people and needs commendation and not condemnation as the blackmailers want people to believe.

 

Recently, a “fake” story was syndicated on some national dailies and online media platforms by some mischief makers with the intention to “hang the dog” by giving it a bad name.

 

The purported reports was said to have quoted respected Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) member, Dr. Peter Singabele as saying that the Sampson Siasia pitch was disapproved because it has some defects.

 

But Dr. Singabele has since come out to debunk the reports by saying he was quoted out of context , stressing that the said reports were skewed.

 

Now! The million dollar question is; who is afraid of Moni Love? A son of the soil who unlike other wealthy Bayelsans decided to give back over N150m sports facilities to the state for free.

 

According to Ebi Egbe who remained undaunted said “some wicked people are trying to pull me down but I believe Jesus will not allow them. I built my reputation over the years and am known all over the world”.

 

He admonished his Ijaw brothers and sisters to “stop this useless pull him down syndrome it will not help us as a people”, stressing further that “I have been in the sports management business for twenty-seven years now, and in sports construction for twelve years. With these records I am not a push -over in sports business”.

 

Mr. Ebi Egbe is a certified FIFA agent and one of the few FIFA licensed agents in Africa. Those “fighting” him are charlatans and busy body politicians who are jealous of his track records. They should know that one who points accusing finger at someone, the rest fingers are pointing at one. “Moni Love” deserves commendation.

Music executive, Abdulrasheed Bello aka JJC Skillz has announced his separation from his wife, actress Funke Akindele.

He announced this in a post shared on his IG page this morning. He said the last two years of his marriage has been extremely difficult and that he has moved out of their home on the instance of Funke.

 

”Dear Friends and family I need to let you know that Funke and I have separated. While it lasted we shared a lot of things together and have created 2 beautiful children. The last two years have been extremely difficult for us. I know I have tried my best to fix things but I believe it is beyond repair now. Three months ago and at Funke’s insistence ,I moved out of the house and apart from AMVCA,I have not been able to get Funke to sit down in an amicable manner to discuss the future of our relationship. I’m making this announcement so that the public is clear that we both are pursuing separate lives. We still have issues that need to be addressed such as the custody and wellbeing of our children which is paramount as well as business interests which needs to be disentangled but I have no doubt that all of these will be resolved one way or the other.

 

There have been reports that their marriage has been in crisis for a while now. In the last AMVCA awards, Funke and JJC arrived at the venue of the ceremony separately but sat together and even went on the stage to receive an award won by Funke.
