A rally organised by the Obasa Youth Crusade (OYC) on Saturday Nov 12,2022 saw thousands of Lagos residents declaring their support for candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) including Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa.

 

While Tinubu is the Presidential candidate of the APC in the 2023 general election, Dr. Obasa seeks reelection into the Lagos State House of Assembly where he is the Speaker.

The youth further promised to support the re-election of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Idiat Oluranti-Adebule, senatorial candidate for Lagos West, Wale Ahmed, a House of Representatives candidate for Agege and Abdulkareem Jubril, candidate for Agege Constituency 2 at the State House of Assembly.

 

They, however, vowed to ensure that Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party, and others are woefully defeated in Lagos.

 

Addressing the crowd at the Agege Stadium, Lagos, Speaker Obasa urged the youth to sustain the tempo adding that the rally was first of its kind in the area.

Obasa added that the passion showed by the youth and those who attended the rally was enough proof that the people of Lagos remained happy with the APC and its progress in the State.

 

According to him, even though the gathering was in his honour, the attendees must know that the bigger task was to work for Tinubu and Sanwo-Olu’s victory at the forthcoming election.

 

“Today you are here to talk about Obasa, but we have a bigger project and that is Bola Ahmed Tinubu. We have Asiwaju as the high-tension wire from which we all are connected. I also promise that we will never disappoint you.

 

“We have provided jobs, thanks to our governor. In Agege today, we have almost all the roads tarred.

We have a governor that is well connected, capable to continue to in office.

“In Tinubu, we have a leader who has the ingenuity of identifying capable hands irrespective of tribe and ethnicity. This has made Lagos a great state. It also shows that he will be beneficial to the country as President.

 

“We shouldn’t allow someone who only manipulates the internet to deceive the people. APC is the only party that will take us to the promised land and the only presidential candidate that can do it is Bola Ahmed Tinubu while the governorship candidate that can do it in Lagos is Sanwo-Olu,” Obasa said while tasking the crowd to vote for other candidates of the APC as they have shown experience and capacity.

 

Afolabi Ayantayo, a Special Adviser to Governor Sanwo-Olu, commended the youth for their zeal to ensure continuity in Lagos.

He urged them not to relent in their love for Tinubu and other candidates of the party.

 

Others who spoke at the rally included candidates Wale Ahmed and Abdulkareem, Abdulrazak Ajala of Odi Olowo LCDA who expressed hope that APC would be returned as the party of choice, and Abdulganiyu Obasa, who affirmed that Agege had witnessed a lot of development and progress as a result of the residents’ love for the APC.

 

Highlights of the event were raffle draws which star winner, Sunday Grace, went home with ₦200,000 and entertainment by musicians including Adekunle Temitope, better known as Small Doctor.

 

In his remarks, Gbenga Abiola, convener of the group, promised that the OYC would continue to work hard ahead of the election.

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.
