No Individual Is Yoruba Leader - Chief Awolowo And His Supporters Fixed The Title Of Yoruba Leader Upon Him,” - Obasanjo
|Obasanjo and HID Awolowo|
Obasanjo stated this in his book, titled, “My Watch: Political and Public Affairs,” where he addressed what he called his “Nigerianness and Yorubanness.”
In chapter 31, titled, “Campaigns and Elections,” Obasanjo said Nigeria did not need tribal barons as leaders.
He added that there was nothing like Yoruba leadership in Yoruba land.
The former President said:
“Just as there was no single oba having sovereignty over the whole of Yorubaland, there was no individual as leader of the Yorubas in Yorubaland. As it was then, it remains till now.”

The Shocking Story of Tyler Hadley: The boy Who Killed His Parents To Throw A Wild House Party [Photos]
You could tell it was going to be a huge party because almost nobody had heard of the kid who was throwing it. Word was that his name was Tyler Hadley, he attended Port St. Lucie High, and, most crucially, his parents were out of town. Where exactly Tyler's parents had traveled, or how far, no one seemed to know.
Tyler had been telling his friends all week that he was going to have a party, but nobody believed him. He'd never thrown a party before, and it was impossible to believe that his parents, who had been increasingly strict with him lately, would give their consent. When his friends asked whether the party was still on, Tyler replied, "I'm working on it." They assumed that meant it was off. At 11:25 a.m. on Saturday, July 16, 2011, Hadley received a Facebook message from his friend Antonio Ramirez.
“Police confirm Senate forgery.” published on July 26, 2015, by a national daily.
“There was a young lady of Riga/ who [jumped] with a smile on a tiger/ they returned from the ride/ with the lady inside/ and the smile on the face of the tiger.” Limerick. Anonymous.
Last month, about three weeks after Senator Saraki and Honourable Dogara caught everybody by surprise and pulled off the civilian equivalent of a political coup against the leadership of their party, I published an article titled SARAKI PROVOKES MOTHER OF MEDIA WARS.
Since then, nothing, not even President Buhari’s visit to the US, or the announcement about one million barrels of oil being stolen by officials had pushed the fall-outs of that step by dissidents within the All Progressive Congress, APC, off the front pages. The announcement by the Nigeria Police “confirming” a forgery of the documents of the National Assembly, NASS, was, to me a foregone conclusion. It would have amounted to a miracle of the twenty-first century if the police found nothing.
Influential ministers and aides of former President Goodluck Jonathan were among those who allegedly shared over 500 Federal Government houses located in high brow areas of Abuja and Lagos as parting gifts from the immediate past administration.
Beside the influential ministers and top presidential aides, heads of some powerful federal agencies like the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the armed forces as well as top military officers are also beneficiaries of the last minute largesse of the Jonathan’s administration, as documents sighted in the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) have revealed.

Nigeria’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom (UK), Dr Dalhatu Tafida, yesterday visited the London home of Oba Okunade Sijuwade, the Ooni of Ife, to commiserate with his family on the passing on of the foremost monarch.
Tafida said he visited the family, including Oba Sijuwade’s son Adetokunbo, and spent about one hour with them. The envoy condoled with the family on behalf of the Federal Government and told them they could ask for consular support —should the need arise.
At Oba Sijuwade’s home were his wives, children and an unnamed traditional ruler from Osun State, according to a source present during Tafida’s visit.
EU Ban on Nigeria Agricultural Food Exports Like Beans, Palm Oil, Peanut Chips Dried Fish & Melon Seeds To Europe
NIGERIA’S economy, which is going through a turbulent period from reduction in oil income, is set to further unravel. Why? The European Union has just suspended some agricultural food exports from Nigeria. The food items banned from Europe till June 2016 are beans, sesame seeds, melon seeds, dried fish and meat, peanut chips and palm oil. This is a setback for a nation that desperately needs to expand its export basket to boost domestic agricultural activities and create jobs.
According to the European Food Safety Authority, the rejected beans were found to contain between 0.03mg per kilogramme to 4.6mg/kg ofdichlorvos pesticide, when the acceptable maximum residue limit is 0.01mg/kg. The embargo is a reflection of our inability to adhere to global standards, and this has come to haunt us at the international level again. Overturning the ban requires a firm approach to enforcing standards at all times.

Last Friday at about 7 am, Kazeem Olajide allegedly poisoned his 41-day-old baby,Zainab Olajide, in a desperate attempt to divorce his wife. The incident happened at Toluwalase Estate, Ijoko-Abule, in the Lemode area of Ogun State.
It was learnt that the mother, Abosede Ogundare, had left Zainab with Kazeem to sweep the compound only to come back and met the baby with foams gushing out from her mouth.
Ogundare alerted neighbours to the incident having found a bottle containing pesticide with her husband.
Zainab was said to have been rushed to a hospital in the community, where she eventually died.
It was also learnt that the suspect, who hails from Abeokuta, Ogun State, attempted to flee, but was held by residents, while the landlord of the house reported the case to the monarch of the community, Oba Solomon Sokunbi. The father was handed over to policemen at the Agbado Police Division after he confessed to the crime before the monarch.
A resident, who identified himself only as Biodun, said Kazeem had been threatening to divorce his wife before the baby’s untimely death.
Alayeluwa Oba Okunade Sijuwade was born on the 1st of January, 1930 to a great royal family in the Ogboru house, Ilare, Ile-Ife. The last Ooni of Ife that the Ogboru ruling house presented (before the incumbent) reigned in Ife for many years as Sijuwade Adelekan Olubuse I. He was the first Ooni to venture out of his domain. At the invitation of the colonial Governor he visited Lagos in 1903 to give his ruling on whether the Oba Elepe of Epe was entitled to wear a crown which was earlier refused by Oba Akarigbo of Remo. Oba Adelekan was the father of the late “Omo-Oba“ Adereti Sijuwade, the father of Oba Sijuwade Olubuse II- the present Ooni of Ife. His mother was the late Yeyelori, Emilia Ifasesin Sijuwade.

Alayeluwa Oba Okunade Sijuwade
(CFR, DCL, LLD, D. LITT)
OONI of Ife
ILE-IFE – Ife Ooye - is a name that was deliberately coined by the founding fathers of the Yoruba Race; as earlier indicated, it was neither a coincidental nor a careless coinage. Its antecedents date to the very beginning.
From Ile-Ife according to the Yorubas, the world took off; from Ile-Ife, empires and kingdoms were founded. Oduduwa sent out his sons to found and rule over these empires and kingdoms. The relationship of the rulers of such empires and kingdoms to Ife in the distant past is unclear. Eventually, it came to be recognized that although they had political power over these kingdoms and empires, spiritual power was believed to reside in Ile-Ife, it was this spiritual power that made it possible for them to rule successfully over their kingdoms and empires.
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade, has died at the age of 85.
Oba Sijuwade, one of the country’s most revered royal fathers and custodian of Yoruba culture, died in a London hospital yesterday after a brief illness.
Although, there has been no official statement concerning his death, the online free encyclopaedia, Wikipedia, surmised that he was dead.
“Alayeluwa Oba Okunade Sijuwade, or Sijuade (born 1 January 1930 – died 28 July, 2015)”, Wikipedia posted on its site late yesterday.
Enquiries at the palace met with stiff resistance as insiders said the death of a traditional ruler cannot be announced until certain rites were performed.
Highly placed Osun State government officials were also reluctant to confirm the demise of the royal father. However, there was noticeable apprehension and a mournful mood in the state.

President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the gladiators in the ongoing crisis in the House of Representatives six hours to resolve all pending issues ahead of the resumption of plenary Tuesday.
Mr. Buhari met with the All Progressives Congress, APC, caucus in the House at the Presidential Villa Abuja, Monday.
One of the members who attended the meeting, which lasted about 30 minutes, told PREMIUM TIMES that the president “did not waste time, but simply reminded members on the need for party discipline”.

World’s First Malaria Vaccine Mosquirix Approved by European Regulators One Step Closer To Saving Millions Of Lives.
The world’s first malaria vaccine has been approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), setting the stage for a final assessment by the World Health Organisation (WHO) before the drug can be accepted by countries ravaged by the disease.

The approval is a sign of how desperate the world is for a vaccine to prevent malaria, which kills nearly 600,000 people a year, most of them young children.

Read excerpts of article written by President Buhari's Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity
Shortly after the August 1983 military coup that brought a 40-year-old Muhammadu Buhari to power, he received a phone call from top personnel in the United States Army. General Smith was the Commandant of the U.S. War College from which General Buhari graduated in 1980. The school's 1979 set had graduated its first Nigerian, General Wushishi, who was the Chief of Defence in the just ousted Shehu government.

Shehu said Buhari believed in the rule of law and would not do anything that would derail any judicial process, stressing that those who were constitutionally saddled with the process did not need the President’s clearance to do their job.

How Saraki Lost Opportunity To Quench Senate Fire - And For Those Who Think That Tinubu's Star Can Be Dimmed They Are Deceiving Themselves.
I believe very much in the party supremacy and the rule of law otherwise I have no business being in the senate.
As much as I respect the views and choices of my other colleagues, we must also recognise the fact that politics is fluid. When we started, it was healthy to have brothers to compete for a post, someone would emerge winner. The issue of zoning came up but it wasn't resolved and even up until now, it remains a speculation that some governors recommended that the senate presidency must go to a particular zone, but it was neither mentioned nor confirmed up till now. So it was still healthy to have two people from different zones competing for a post.

Andy Greenberg was driving his car in St. Louis when he lost control of his vehicle. The air conditioning, the radio and windshield wipers all suddenly turned on, then the engine cut off. Greenberg tried to take back control of the car, but he couldn’t. It had been hacked.
Yes, you can now add cars to the ever increasing list of things that can be hacked. Greenberg is a senior writer for Wired and he had asked two security researchers – Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek – to show him how vulnerable cars are to remote hacking. So, they did just that. The tricks were at first small: The hackers sent a picture to his dashboard's digital display. Soon after, they cut his brakes. No wonder the experiment had quickly “ceased to be fun” for Greenberg. The car eventually ended up in a ditch.
