BOLA TINUBU’S SON, SEYI TINUBU FINALLY ENGAGED HIS HEARTROB

Published

on

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!!!

As part of Union Bank’s commitment to driving financial inclusion in Nigeria, the Bank has partnered with WACOT Rice Limited – a rice processing company, to financially include 6,000 local farmers including youth and women in Kebbi State.
The Kebbi Financial Inclusion Drive (KFID) which will cover four Local Government Areas – Argungu, Augie, Suru, and Dandi – is a critical part of WACOT’s Argungu Outgrower Expansion Project funded by United States Agency for International Development (USAID) West Africa Trade Hub. This program is set to resolve the overwhelming financial inclusion deficit within rural communities in Kebbi.
The financial inclusion initiative is being implemented with technical support from National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), to help the farmers acquire the relevant documentation and identification required to open bank accounts.
Union Bank will facilitate account opening and expand its agency banking network to cover the areas while supporting its agents on ground with digital banking solutions to enable seamless transacting and account management.
Farouk Gumel, Chairman WACOT and Board Chair, Union Bank was on ground in Kebbi State to kick-off the drive and paid a visit to the Kebbi state Governor, Senator Abubakar Atiku Bagudu to discuss expanding the programme state-wide.
In his recent keynote address at the recently concluded and  Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria (CIBN) Conference, Mr. Gumel said:
 “As we work towards achieving financial inclusion to reach the unbanked, we must commit the same resources and investments to rural-local customers as we have done to urban-global clients to help create the growth that will lift us all to collective prosperity.”
WACOT Rice is a subsidiary of TGI Group. TGI Group, through another of its subsidiary Titan Trust Bank, recently acquired Union Bank in a landmark transaction which was announced in 2021.

Federal Government Orders University Vice-Chancellors To Reopen Schools, Begin Lectures Amid 7 Months Lecturers’ Strike

Published

on

The government issued the directive through the National Universities Commission (NUC), and a letter signed by its Director, Finance and Accounts, Sam Onazi, on behalf of the Executive Secretary of the commission, Professor Abubakar Rasheed.

The Nigerian government has directed vice-chancellors to re-open universities and allow students to resume lectures immediately.

The government issued the directive through the National Universities Commission (NUC), and a letter signed by its Director, Finance and Accounts, Sam Onazi, on behalf of the Executive Secretary of the commission, Professor Abubakar Rasheed.

 

The letter which The PUNCH obtained on Monday, was reportedly addressed to all vice-chancellors; Pro-Chancellors and chairmen of governing councils of federal universities.

 

“Ensure that ASUU members immediately resume/commence lectures; Restore the daily activities and routines of the various University campuses,” the letter partly reads.

We had reported that the National Industrial Court of Nigeria (NICN), on Wednesday, September 21, 2022, ordered the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to call off its ongoing nationwide strike.

 

It reported that the umbrella body of the lecturers in public universities had declared a warning strike on February 14, to force the Nigerian Government to implement agreements it earlier signed with the union.

 

The agreement stipulated how university education would be funded for better improvement.

 

The strike has since rolled over and is now in its seventh month following the government’s failure to implement all the agreements.

 

Several meetings between ASUU and the Federal Government have ended in a deadlock.

 

Consequently, the Federal Government went to court to challenge the strike.

 

The government through its counsel, James Igwe, prayed the court for an interlocutory injunction restraining ASUU from taking further steps as regards the strike, pending the determination of the substantive suit.
