It has been elation galore since the birth of Seyi Tinubu’s gorgeous little angel. Daddy and mommy have been besides themselves in unbridled joy, so also their own parents on both sides. Layal’s mom a first time grandmother is radiating in bliss and joy at the birth of grandchild. We hear that the great Jagaban, the politico of renowned repute, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his wife Senator Oluremi Tinubu, have been thoroughly estatic as they have welcomed their new granddaughter, who would be named in 8 days, meaning on Friday, June 10, 2017. Mother and daughter are in great health and bonding perfectly according to our findings. The elated new father, who only just welcomed his baby daughter from what we hear has just taken delivery of 2 humongous state of the art machines to celebrate his wife and gorgeous daughter. More after the break. For himself he got a brand spanking new, sexy black S63 Mercedes Benz Coupe, a gorgeously seductive and totally intimidating car, which we hear starts at about ₦50 million Naira. This Merc is technology on fire and we hear the inside or better still, interior is tan in colour. It’s like driving a private jet, like a Gulfstream IV. It’s normal road racing awesome machine at its best. This is adding to the other awesome cars already in his mind blowing collection, which makes it 3 top of the range Mercs and a Bentley 2-door. For madam, as a form of thank you my darling, the MD of Loatsad Promomedia also took delivery of a brand spanking new, luminescent white Range Rover Autobiography also, 2017 edition at that which starts from $170,995 which is in excess of ₦50 million Naira. For those familiar with Range Rovers, the autobiography edition or class is the highest you can go; what the mode or edition implies very simply is that, it is a signature range in their collection. Both cars conservatively put, would have set him back by not less than ₦110 million Naira only. For many who might not know Seyi very well, the law graduate of the University of Buckingham with both his LLB & LLM degrees has had his hands in some very lucrative pies as of recent and if things continue to unfold as fantastically as they have been of late, dude should emerge soon as one of the biggest players in advertisement/outdoor promotion/branding sub-sector. His brand we hear has stakes in Shazam and AirPush, 2 well known international brands. Loatsad Promomedia is connected to Promomedia, the biggest outdoor and media supplier in the Middle East, number 1 in Lebanon and Iraq. A testament to that connection are some of those in your face, one of its kind, LED outdoor billboards owned by Loatsad Promomedia and mounted strategically in some exclusive areas on the island, displaying plenty of adverts and promos. The very energetic dude and avowed Polo buff, also has hands in Construction and energy. But what he is best known for albeit very quietly is his philanthropic drive, which in the next few months he wants to take to the very next level. His idea is to take kids off the streets and care for every level of their education, thereby empowering such.

Perm Sec Denies Sexually Harassing Female Subordinate, Says, She Accused Me Because I Refused To Pay Her Bills.

Published

The permanent secretary of the federal ministry of foreign affairs, Ibrahim Lamuwa, says he is being accused of sexual harassment by Simisola Fajemirokun-Ajayi, an official of the ministry, because he refused her demands.

 

Recall that the minister of foreign affairs, Yusuf Tugga, had notified Folasade Yemi-Esan, the head of service of the federation (HoS), of the allegation.

 

In a letter to Yemi-Esan, the minister said it was necessary to communicate the development to her following the “gravity of the matter” after Femi Falana, a human rights lawyer, wrote a petition to him.

 

However, in response to the allegation, Lamuwa said his failure to pay Ajayi’s bills on an official trip to Davos and refusal to grant her access to policy files and financial records of the ministry were the reasons why she accused him of sexual harassment.

 

The permanent secretary said he has never sexually harassed her but has maintained a professional relationship with all his subordinates.

 

“I have served for nine years cumulatively in the State House, in the Office of the Vice President, Chief of Staff to the President, and the exalted Office of the President at various times under Chief Mike Oghiadomhe, Mr. David Edevbie, Amb. Abdullahi Gwary, and lastly, Amb. Lawal Kazaure,” Lamuwa said.

 

“I received three letters of commendation at various times from the State House for meritorious service.

 

“On allegations of female directors being harassed, I have never had any incident with any female director in any hotel room, nor have I ever removed any female officers’ names from trips or postings because they refused to comply with any sexual demands.

 

“No four women or any number could have shared any alleged ordeal with me with her, as no such incidents have happened in the past, and it is untrue that any such common knowledge exists in the Ministry, as there is no basis for it.

 

“From the foregoing, I believe Mrs. Simisola O. Fajemirokun-Ajayi’s action might not be unconnected with my failure to pay her Davos bills or give her access to the Ministry’s policy files and financial records.

 

“For example, on 12th January, 2023, while in Davos, on a WhatsApp chat, she tried to know what I and the DFA were doing about the payment of the outstanding Nigerian Mission’s 1st Semester Allocation of about N12,957,103,477, claiming to know the Minister has spoken to the CBN Governor on the issue.

 

“In my response, I told her that Missions’ funding should not concern her, as it was being handled at the highest level. Her response was ‘Noted Sir. As directed by the Hon. Minister sir, does it concern Me?’. I wrote back to say, ‘I sorted that out with the HMFA yesterday’. And she said ‘thank you’. I knew she was angry with me about that.

 

“It is clear that there are two issues that have been worrying Mrs. Simisola O. Fajemirokun-Ajayi and were therefore waiting for any opportunity to get back at me.”

 

The permanent secretary added that they had exchanged jokes on many occasions in

the presence of other people.
