War Looms in Popular Mornach, Oba Obateru Akinruntan’s Household… As Sons fight dirty over company (Obat Petrolium) Control……

Published

The Apapa, Lagos office/depot of Obat Petroleum is gradually becoming a war front judging from recent events where the two sons of powerful monarch, Oba Obateru Akinruntan, Femi and Yomi are at each other’s throat over the control of the oil company.
The genesis of the crisis was traced to an enormous fraud that rocked the company some months ago.
The extravagant Managing Director of Obat Petroleum, Femi who is the second son of the Chairman was said to have diverted some of the company’s fund into a private business, a development that led to the sack and arrest of the company’s accountant and some workers who were believed to be loyal to Femi.
Femi who feared the consequence of his action was said to have fled the country and took refuge in America only to return after he was guaranteed that his father had been pacified by some friends and family members who pleaded on his behalf.
A source close to the family revealed that the father who wanted to punish Femi for his misdeed appointed his first son, Abayomi who was initially the company’s Director of Operation before he was relieved to head the company in Femi’s absence.
It was further gathered that Femi’s re-appearance changed the equation as he resumed into office and demanded to be returned to his position as the Managing Director.
The first blood was drawn some weeks ago when a memo was sent and the company’s secretary addressed Yomi as the company’s Managing Director.
Femi was said to have flown into a rage and confronted his brother who tried to calm him down.
The matter was said to have been reported to their father who ordered the secretary the Secretary’s suspension.
A close friend of the brothers revealed to us that Femi is an ingrate, he stated that Yomi is the first born and he was the one that asked Femi to relocate from America to help him with the control of Obat Petroleum.
He furthermore disclosed that Femi’s interests always clash with that of Yomi, he was quoted to have claimed that ‘Febson mall in Abuja was taken from Yomi and given to Femi’s boys, in the area of politics, even the kingship Femi has an ambition but Yomi was only playing cool because he sees him as a misled brother who will later understand’.
The feud between the brothers was said to have been kept secret with a warning from their father who promised to resolve the matter.
Yomi was said to have fallen out of their father’s favour for his financial recklessness with their father not knowing Yomi was better than Femi in spending not until the latest financial mess Femi plunged the company into.
The brothers were said to have been inseparable not until some friends came between them, an individual, Sebastian was fingered among the people watering the seed of discord among the brothers.
Yomi who always play the big brother role was said to have doused the tension some weeks ago when he dedicated his facebook page to Femi’s birthday with the message ‘Happy birthday to a wonderful brother…’.
The crisis is said to have been managed internally with their father plotting how to separate the roles and control of the company among his two sons.

Following the ASUU strike that has kept university students across the nation at home for over seven months, NANS declared “Occupy The Airport” nationwide protest.

The Nigeria Police Force has announced that it has deployed personnel to adequately secure seaports across the nation following a threat by the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) to shut down commercial activities at the nation’s busiest seaports ¬¬¬¬¬¬- the Apapa and Tin-Can Island Ports in protest over the lingering strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
Following the ASUU strike that has kept university students across the nation at home for over seven months, NANS declared “Occupy The Airport” nationwide protest.
The aggrieved students who protested on Monday at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport also reportedly threatened to ground commercial activities at the Apapa and Tin-Can Island Ports in Lagos State.
Disclosing the security beef up to Daily Trust, the Commissioner of Police in charge of Western Port Authority Command, Jonathan Towuru, said security was tightened around the Western Ports to avoid any breakdown of law and order although the student body did not show up as threatened.
The commissioner said, “People went about their businesses while operations at the terminals went on seamlessly, without any hindrance. But if the students eventually turn up, we will engage them in discussions. I must say that they conducted themselves well on Monday at the airport even though you still saw police monitoring the protest.”

…says Delta healthcare will curb medical tourism

Delta State Governor and Vice-Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ifeanyi Okowa, weekend, said that poor management of the nation’s economy by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) caused the rising hunger and poverty in the country.

He stated this at an empowerment programme for the people of Ika Federal Constituency at Boji-Boji Owa, Ika North Council by the member representing the constituency at the House of Representatives, Mr. Victor Nwokolo.

The governor, who commended Nwokolo for his gesture, described the event as “empowerment programme with a difference. He said Nigeria was troubled because people were hungry and out of job due to mismanagement of the nation’s economy.

He added that even students were having lots of challenges because their parents could not meet their needs owing to the level of poverty resulting from ineptitude of the APC-led Federal Government.

He, therefore, urged Nigerians to support the PDP, saying it was the only party with clear understanding of the nation’s challenges and had clear solution to rescue the nation.

Earlier, Nwokolo said his motive for the empowerment was to restore hope to the hopeless amid rising hunger and poverty in the land.

MEANWHILE, Okowa, also at the different forum, said the huge investment being made by his administration in the health sector was to improve healthcare delivery and reduce medical tourism in the country.

He disclosed this in an interview with journalists shortly after inspecting facilities at the Advanced Diagnostic Medical Centre and Mother and Child Hospital, Owa-Alero in Ika Council of the state.

He said the twin medical facilities would, on completion, reduce medical tourism as it would provide first-class medical services to people who would have sought medical treatment abroad.

“I am glad we have gotten to this stage. I had high hopes that by today, we would have inaugurated these projects.

“The equipment are fully on site and we are trying to get things fully sorted out and I am sure that in the next one month, it should be ready and opened to the public for use.

“The two projects are obviously very important. The Mother and Child, as it is so stated, is supposed to take care of every illness concerning our women and children,” he said.
