Delta: Tribunal rejects APC, O’tega’s witness

21

Governor Abiola Ajimobi has been swimming in troubled waters of controversy beginning from his first tenure. Many had placed a bet that he would not return for a second term. But he rode on the wave of popular sentiments, not only to win the primaries, but went ahead to win the gubernatorial election. Ajimobi’s litany of problems largely stem from his lifestyle. He is known to be haughty and self-opinionated. No one was surprised when he went against popular opinion and the prevailing mood in the country to convey tens of his friends and family members abroad for the wedding of his daughter, Jibola.

Governor Abiola Ajimobi has been swimming in troubled waters of controversy beginning from his first tenure. Many had placed a bet that he would not return for a second term. But he rode on the wave of popular sentiments, not only to win the primaries, but went ahead to win the gubernatorial election. Ajimobi’s litany of problems largely stem from his lifestyle. He is known to be haughty and self-opinionated. No one was surprised when he went against popular opinion and the prevailing mood in the country to convey tens of his friends and family members abroad for the wedding of his daughter, Jibola.
Oyo State under Ajimobi appears to be under a king who views his subjects like a speck of dust. Ajimobi, a former Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the National Oil and Chemical Marketing Company a subsidiary of Shell Petroleum, Nigeria told anyone who cared to listen that he was already an affluent person who could afford any luxury before he became governor.
Only few persons are accorded any form of respect by Ajimobi who often addresses staff of the state government and indigenes of the state in very derogatory terms, as if they don’t matter. One of the glaring examples of Ajimobi’s absolute rule in Oyo is his insistence that no other functionary of the state government must dress in Agbada-the traditional three-piece flowing male apparel.
In Oyo State, use of Agbada by employees of the state government is strictly reserved for His Excellency, Governor Abiola Ajimobi.

Synergy Beverages Helmsman Ties the Knot Today
The wedding bells will be ringing today in Angwar Dosa, Kaduna, where the chairman of Synergy Beverages, Ahmed Baba-Ahmed, will be exchanging marital vows with his heartthrob Fa’izah Suleiman Abdul-Kadir Jama’a. The 28-year-old multi-millionaire is the heir of the late revered scholar Baba Ahmed.
The bride and groom met about three years ago in Dubai, where Ahmed took a short course in Oil and Gas, while Jama’a was studying for her degree programme. They started dating some months later after they realised the chemistry between them. Their relationship blossomed solidly through friendship, love and compromise. Throughout their courtship, Ahmed could hardly hide his fascination by the beauty and character of Jama’a, that he named her his quintessential queen.

Little wonder then that he proposed to his queen last year with a stunning eight-carat diamond engagement ring. The couple had their wedding luncheon yesterday at the Muritala Square Auditorium, Kaduna, and for the Fatiha today, Jama’a will be donning an expensive couture gown worth a fortune for her charming prince. An academician by nature, Ahmed is a graduate of Chemical Engineering from Ahmadu Bello University and holds a Masters degree in Engineering Management from Coventry University, United Kingdom. He set up the company, Synergy Beverages primarily to actualise his vision and dream to run the first bottled flavoured water company in the northern part of the country.
His bride on the other hand is a passionate and skillful photographer known by her distinct signature ‘Eeexa’s View’. Born in Kaduna, Jama’a is currently in her final year, studying Mass Communications in Baze University. She is an indigene of Bauchi State. Although, she is marrying into wealth, Jama’a has no intention of abandoning her passion. She plans to pursue her photography business after her graduation because of her strong passion for the profession.

Adams Oshiomhole and his Brickbat
New wine obviously intoxicates and this is evident in the manner which the Governor Adams Oshiomhole is portrayed in the media recently. There is hardly a week that goes by without his picture gracing the pages of newspapers or displayed on screens. The former Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) leader seems to have regained his vocal power which was what placed him on the spotlight in the first place. For Oshiomhole, the warmth and beauty of his Cape Verdean beauty is enough to put him back in his groove. It is not unusual to find the governor glowing with pride and relishing the green in the eyes of others when they behold his beautiful and stunning wife, especially now that his wife is expecting a child. The governor is undeniably drunk in love.
But his outburst in the media recently cannot be overlooked. Oshiomhole’s constant brickbat is indeed raising eyebrows and many wonder the motive behind it. Whether he is lending his voice to the President Buhari’s anti-corruption programme or raining fire and brimstone on the opposition party, it is yet unknown if it is the after-effects of his marital bliss or could it be a portentous show of solidarity with the president? One thing is however certain: This governor has been making a mess of himself.

The New Face of Change in Ministries and Agencies
With all the drama that heralded the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari and the accompanied mantra of change, it was generally believed that the copious acts of corruption seen in the corridors of power will abate. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Rather than dissipate, public servants have sought desperate ways to be in the good book of Buhari’s new helmsmen by instigating allegations against their colleagues.
Such is the case at Nigeria Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) where colleagues turn on each other and friends suddenly turned enemies. Some even went to the extent of involving anti-graft agencies to deepen the humiliation. Not a few are accused of stealing funds without proper evidence and subjected to all manner of interrogation and harassment. Instead of the intended change as many had believed, there is widespread lies and injustice in these offices, all in a bid to occupy the position of the right hand man of the president. What is yet unknown is if the helmsman will see through this cloak of deceit and uncover the real culprits.

No Easy Times for Easy Taxi
A couple of deaths have been recorded already, even as colleagues of the departed taxi drivers who were former employees of Philly and Mools Automobiles Limited, the Opebi, Lagos-based company that pioneered the innovative public transportation, Metro Taxi, groans under the excruciating working conditions in the company. Mr. Niyi Oguntoyinbo, the group Chief Executive Officer, Philly and Mools is viewed by many of his friends as an entrepreneurial wizkid who knows how to navigate his way through the intricate world of accounting and business development. Nonetheless, his business credentials are viewed as woolly by many who can’t seem to track his sudden affluence. Unconfirmed reports have it that Metro Taxi may be linked to an embattled former governor of Lagos State.
The recent and urgent concern of many drivers on the Metro Taxi scheme is that Oguntoyinbo has mooted a design to change the rules of engagement which stipulated a period of 37 months within which the drivers had to deliver N7000 daily. A few drivers developed adverse heart condition and died from the pressure of being on the road everyday to meet the target.
The contract specified that the vehicle would revert ownership from Philly and Mools to the individual driver at the expiration of the contract. However, while they started work with that understanding, the contract papers were made available to them and signed by them three months after. But the argument of the hapless drivers is that the period of the contract should count from when they made the first payment to the coffers of the company. Oguntoyinbo who had physically harassed some of the drivers, using law enforcement agents is in a dilemma arising from the searchlight turned on him by an anti-graft agency investigating petitions written against a former governor of Lagos State allegedly linked to Philly and Mools.
