Our world renowned Godfather needs no introduction whatsoever, and he is back to the 2nd thing he knows how to do best-philandering! But just in case you don’t know him by his nickname or you are just hearing about him on this platform for the first time, we would do our best to indulge you with a little intro. The middle belt born billionaire is as liquid as they come, so well to do is he that some say that he is unofficially one of the country’s richest, he is into several businesses. With a conglomerate that covers many things.

Unconfirmed gist even says that when he sneezes, some top people in Government in very strategic positions for that matter immediately begin to catch cold. He is also married, in fact to a very well known, very wealthy in her own right and highly influential boardroom guru. Sometime back, he hosted many top Nigerians and others to one of the biggest events in Dubai, the UAE. One major thing he is also very well known for, apart from his vast wealth and influence is his love for gorgeous damsels, the more stunning they are the better. And they are very plenty in number. Legend has it that when he lays eyes on his specification, he totally goes gaga. Nothing is ever too much for him to do for whosoever is his current flame, so much so that he spoils them totally silly….. .

Now to the gist of the matter!!! Our dearest godfather has fallen head over heels in love once again!!! His current jewel/flame, who seems to be turning his heart topsy-turvy is of Yoruba extraction and is based in Lagos here. The lucky dear has the initials BB as her name, in fact her first name is Bukky. She is one of 3 sisters, who we hear are all well groomed in the art of catching powerful and very well to do men. While she drives a brand spanking new Range Rover, one of her sisters drives a Toyota RAV 4. Her relationship with the godfather from what we hear is not more than a month and a few weeks old, but she’s already enjoying the fantastic largesse of dating a billionaire. Hear this, just before anything even happened between the duo, she was gifted a beautiful wrist-watch from one of the well known brands-A rose gold Rolex Oyster Perpetual, emblazoned with diamonds said to have been valued at several thousands of Pounds, just to prepare her ahead for what she was getting into.

But that was just a taste of the pudding, we hear that as we speak, the godfather also got her a choice land somewhere in Lekki, where BB is said to be building to her own taste. To even showcase her new very improved wealth status to her friend, BB not too long ago, took a lucky friend on a shopping spree, where that one got first, a Lady Dior bag (from $4000 dollars) upward, another bag and a Cartier bangle all costing not less than $10,000 Dollars, just for accompanying her on the trip. How did the very lucky BB even got to meet her newly found ATM? We heard that her boss had sent her to the godfather over a business transaction, only for the godfather to behold and he was totally smitten and hooked, and there began the whirlwind romance.

Between Gov. Hope Uzodimma And Imo Hoteliers…….



Governor Hope Uzodimma has prevented the proposed strike by the Imo Hoteliers Association.

The strike was scheduled to commence on Tuesday but the Chairman of the association, Mr. Chima Chukwunyere announced in Owerri that the strike has been suspended.

Chukwunyere said that the proposed strike was suspended after due consultations with Gov. Uzodimma.

According to him, Uzodimma promised to personally intervene to solve all the outstanding issues raised by the association.

“The governor condemned the actions of sealing and looting of the hotels illegally and directed that no ministry should use consultants in revenue collection.

” He promised to convene a meeting of the executives of the Imo Internal Revenue Service and those of the Nigeria Hotel Association, Imo chapter, to harmonize the demand notice issued to the hoteliers.“

Chukwunyere said that the governor also advised members to pay taxes to enable the Imo government to function and serve the state better.

The association on Sept. 10 threatened to embark on strike over alleged multiple taxations, illegal sealing of hotels, and unprofessional conduct of revenue collectors.

Despite his “expulsion”, ADC presidential candidate, Kachikwu, makes INEC list



Mr Kachikwu was expelled from the party last Friday by the Ralph Nwosu-led NWC.

The embattled presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Dumebi Kachikwu, has been named among candidates validly nominated by political parties for the 2023 presidential election despite his “expulsion” from the party.

Mr Kachikwu was among the 18 presidential candidates approved by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Tuesday.

The Ralph Nwosu-led National Working Committee (NWC) of the party announced the expulsion of Mr Kachikwu from the party last Friday for alleged anti-party activities.

He was expelled along with seven other key party leaders following the recommendation of a seven-member disciplinary committee earlier set up by the ADC NWC. The NWC had earlier on 2 September placed the presidential candidate on suspension.

Mr Nwosu, in a statement issued late Friday, said the disciplinary committee found Mr Kachikwu guilty of allegations of gross misconduct, and gross violations of its constitution, among others.

But in its reaction the following day, the interim leadership of the ADC dismissed Mr Kachikwu’s purported expulsion.

The interim National Chairman of the Party, Patricia Akwashiki, in a statement, described the action of the erstwhile chairman, Mr Nwosu, as the antics of a sinking man clutching at straws.

The crisis rocking the ADC has its genesis in the call for the resignation of the national chairman by 27 state chairmen of the party, having spent 17 years in the office.

At the time of filing this report, we could not confirm if the party’s leadership had made formal or legal requests to the commission to remove the candidate from the list.

Stella Obasanjo’s brother, John Abebe, arraigned for fraud



Dr. John Abebe, the younger brother of a former First Lady, Stella Obasanjo, was on Monday arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Monday before the Lagos State Special Offences Court in Ikeja over allegations of fraud.

Abebe was arraigned alongside a former Head of Firstbank Plc, United Kingdom Correspondent Office, Kamoru Alade Oladimeji, before Justice Olubunmi Abike-Fadipe on six charges of conspiracy, stealing, and obtaining money under pretence.

Part of the counts against the defendants read: “That you, Dr. John Abebe and Kamoru Alade Oladimeji, on or about the 4th day of June 2013 in Lagos within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court conspired amongst yourselves to commit felony to wit; stealing the sum of N120 million worth of property of Arsenal Technologies Limited.”

“That you, Dr. John Abebe and Kamoru Alade Oladimeji, on or about the 4th day of June 2013, in Lagos within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court conspired amongst yourselves to commit felony to wit; obtaining by false pretence the sum of N120 million property of Arsenal Technologies Limited under the pretence that your property lying being and situate at 9, Magbon Close, Ikoyi-Lagos State, which you pledged as the security to the Arsenal Technologies Limited was unencumbered, which representation you knew to be false.”

“That you Dr. John Abebe and Inducon Nigeria Limited, on or about the 4th day of June 2013, in Lagos within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court, with intent to defraud and to gain for yourself the sum of $1,000,000.00 or its Naira equivalent from Arsenal Technologies Limited by false pretence to procure the execution of valuable security to wit; a deed of assignment between Inducon Nigeria Limited and Arsenal Technologies Limited, wherein you falsely claimed that the property lying being and situate at No. 9, Magbon Close, Ikoyi-Lagos was unencumbered and that you have full powers to assign and transfer the said property to the assignor; Arsenal Technologies Limited.

According to EFCC, the offences committed are contrary to Sections 280(1), (12), 8 (7), 285(1) and 278(1)(b) of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2011.

The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Following their plea, the prosecutor, Sulaimon urged the court to fix a trial date and to remand the defendants in the custody of the Nigerian Correctional Services until the hearing and determination of the charge.

However, the defense counsel, Anthony Popo and Sam Etaifo urged the court to grant their clients bail in the most liberal terms.

While moving the bail application on behalf of Abebe, Popo told the judge that the matter before her is a commercial transaction between the first defendant and the nominal complainant, which he is ready to settle out of court.

He also claimed that Abebe had paid back the sums of $100,000 and N30 million to the complainant and had also deposited the title document of 26 acres of land and the documents of a property in London to show his seriousness to resolve the matter.

The lawyer further submitted that the defendant would not jump bail since he never violated the terms of the administrative bail granted to him by the EFCC.

The prosecutor did not oppose the application but urged the court to impose stringent terms that will ensure the defendant’s appearance in court for their trial.

In her ruling, Justice Abike-Fadipe granted the first defendant bail in the sum of N20 million with one surety in like sum.

She directed that the surety must be a resident of Lagos and must deposit the title document of a land property whose value must not be less than N20m

The judge also admitted the second defendant to bail in the sum of N10m with one surety in like sum, who must be a resident of the state.

Justice Abike-Fadipe further ordered that the defendant shall continue to enjoy the administrative bail earlier granted to them by the EFCC but if they failed after seven days to perfect the terms of the bail she granted them, they shall be arrested and remanded in prison.

She adjourned the case to December 6 for commencement of trial.
