For those who never knew that one of Nigeria’s most eligible bachelor in the person of Seyi Tinubu, is a hopeless romantic, going by what just happened last weekend, the dandy lawyer as affirmed that he is one in many ways. This is going by how he serenaded his heartrob and jewel-Layal.
The son of the Governor Emeritus of the state of aquatic excellence, better known to all as Lagos, who is also the National Leader of the reigning party in Nigeria (the APC), the one and only Jagaban of Borgu, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu; took matters into his hands when he decided to cast away the tag of the ultimate ladies man by presenting a ring to his jewel of inestimable value.

Seyi, on Friday, November 6, 2015 in far away Ghana, in the Aburi town in Akuapim South Municipal District, in the Eastern region of South Ghana, about 45 minutes from Accra the capital, more precisely at the picturesque Lansdown Resort, over a private candle lit dinner with his super gorgeous heartrob as the center of attraction, Seyi apparently from what we heard went on one knee while presenting a major sparkler which he had hid all day, asking the very suprised but highly elated Layal to marry him.
According to someone privy to the whole she-bangs, Seyi all through the week prior to the weekend had been thinking about the different romantic ways and how best to pop the question, so on Friday last week, he just felt that the best way to go about it, without over thinking it, was just to present the sizeable diamond ring as a way of professing his undying love to the lady who meant the whole world to him and just ask her to be his love for ever ever .

For those who might not know Seyi that well, he is the law graduate son of the former Governor who had his LLB degree from the well known University of Buckingham in the United Kingdom. He had come home a while back to do the compulsory Law School in Nigeria, which he flunked at the 1st attempt before sorting it out at the 2nd attempt.  He then left back for the UK  after working with his dad for a whole year, for his Masters in Corporate & Commercial Law at the same university (University of Buckingham) where he came out with Merit.
And for his hearthrob, who many might not have known too well until now, she is the deliciously gorgeous and stunningly beautiful Layal J. Holm, who is of Lebanese and Nigerian descent and said to be a brilliant Consultant at one of Nigeria’s & world’s foremost auditing firm Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC for short).
She is 25 years old from what we learnt, and a graduate of Political Science and African Studies at the SOAS (School of Oriental Studies) University of London and also has a Masters in Entrepreneurship & Business Management from the University of Surrey.
Seyi is presently as we speak the CEO of a group of Companies that we hear are all doing very very well.
Baring any unforeseen circumstances, what has begun now with this beautiful and romantic proposal would most likely lead to a talk of the town summer wedding that would most likely span Lagos & the UK or a destination wedding somewhere else around the world in 2016.
For now we say congratulations to both Layal & Seyi…….
Now that the news is out, bad belle & naysayers are expected to go on rampage with saying plenty plenty nonsense yarns!!!

More Troubles For Umo Eno As Court Rejects Stay-of-execution Request



A Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday dismissed an application filed by Pastor Umo Eno seeking a stay-of-execution of the Order which had nullified his nomination as the PDP governorship candidate in Akwa Ibom State.

The court which nullified Eno’s nomination, ordered that he should be replaced with Rt. Hon. Michael Enyong as the authentic PDP candidate.

In throwing out the request for stay of execution, the Court ruled that Umo Eno was never a party to the case filed by Enyong, and so his request could not be entertained by the COurt. The court therefore described Umo Eno as ‘’meddlesome interloper’’ for seeking to file an application in a matter he was never a party of.

Recall that in a judgement delivered on January 20, Justice Fadima Aminu of the FHC, Abuja, had ordered the PDP to submit Enyong’s name to INEC as its candidate. In a suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/1295/2022 filed in August, Enyong had submitted that he won the party’s primary held on May 25. The defendant in the case was PDP. Enyong did not join Eno as a party in his case. How clever!

This means that it is only the PDP that has the locus to file an appeal or stay of execution application against the judgement which sacked Eno. So far, the PDP’s National Legal Adviser (NLA) is not willing to participate in the matter especially since he was never carried along in all the Umo Eno legal matters. Rather, the Akwa Ibom State Chapter of the Party had always engaged Barr. Emmanuel Enoidem (the former NLA) as its legal counsel, totally sidelining the current National Legal Adviser. Recall also that the PDP National Legal Adviser had a few weeks ago issued a public statement announcing that it is only the NLA that has the authority to brief and engage lawyers holding briefs for the party. The public statement had also warned party members to desist from engaging lawyers without his knowledge.

Meantime, I understand that Enyong’s lawyers had served INEC with the Court order and his name would soon be published by the electoral umpire as PDP’s authentic governorship candidate.

My Take:

1. The chances of Umo Eno returning to his former status as the governorship candidate is very, very slim. It probably will not happen.

2. Gov. Udom Emmanuel and the PDP have yet to come to terms with the fact that Umo Eno’s name has been deleted as the candidate. They are inconsolable in anger, grief and pain. ‘’They are experiencing a great sense of separation, akin to the overwhelming feeling of loss which one experiences when he is bereaved’’, says a political analyst and business man, Elder Aniefiok Isatt.

3. This development is also the greatest setback and the most devastating blow the PDP has ever suffered in the state since 1999. This case might just be some kind of ‘’Nunc Dimittis’’ for the PDP in the State.

4. Privatively, PDP stalwarts are quick to blame the governor for the woes that has befallen the party this season. They believe that by imposing a very unpopular person as the candidate, the governor had bruised and hurt the majority of the members.

5. The question many are pondering is: Will Udom Emmanuel take to Enyong and accept him as the PDP candidate, thus conceding that Umo Eno was never God’s revelation, contrary to what he told the people; or will the governor leave Enyong to his own devices and embrace a different person?

Our Client Wanted To Say ‘Pupsy’, Not Her Private Parts — Lawyer Defends Embattled Nigerian Polytechnic Female Graduate



Barrister Ikechukwu Nwaopara, a legal practitioner representing the interest of Sharon Ogechi Okoroafor, the graduating student of the Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Owerri, Imo State, who went viral on social media for saying that she graduated with the help of God and her private parts, has said his client was misinterpreted.

The lawyer, who made the appeal to the institution’s management in a statement made available to newsmen, claimed that their client had no intention of disparaging the institution’s reputation, standards or integrity.

The statement reads: “We are solicitors to OKOROAFOR OGECHI SHARON (our client under our Pro Bono (Free Legal Services) on whose behalf we write this memo to you.

“We are aware that she will be facing the school disciplinary panel this morning, and we wish to use this medium to express our confidence that the panel will carry out their duties in compliance with the principles of Fair hearing, good conscience and natural justice, devoid of harassment, intimidation, and threats.

“We have met and discussed with our Client and evidence before us shows that she has no intention to defame the character, standard and integrity of the institution. In her words what happened in the said viral video was a slip of tongue as a result of her uncontrollable ecstasy over her graduation. Her intended words were “God and Pupsy” in appreciation of the Almighty God and her dad.

“It is clear, therefore, that she had no intention whatsoever to use such a “foul word” in the said viral video to cajole or blackmail the institution, as no lecturer or name of the institution was mentioned or referred to in the said viral video.

“Our lawyers are already on ground at the institution now to follow up the proceedings at the panel against any form of intimidation or harassment. The integrity and standard of the said institution is not in doubt especially since my senior brother, Rev Dr Arimanwa took over as the Rector. Indeed, justice is for all parties.”

We had reported that after Sharon’s video went viral on the internet, the management of the institution announced that it would investigate her action as it was capable of dragging the reputation of the school to the mud.
