The Governor of Osun state, Senator Ademola Adeleke has suspended the recent installation of traditional rulers of Ikirun, Igbajo and Iree towns. The suspension was part of the six new Executive Orders issued by the Governor on his first official day in office on Monday, 28 November, 2022. In a press statement signed by his spokesperson, Mallam Olawale Rasheed, the Osun State Governor ordered all the new monarchs to vacate the palaces while also calling on the police to take over the palaces.

In the case of Igbajo, Oyetola installed his namesake, Gboyega Famodun as the new Owa of Igbajo few days to the expiration of his tenure.

Executive Order on State bank accounts “I hereby order the immediate freezing of all Government accounts in all banks and other financial institutions” 2.

In her judgment, she directed Zenith bank to pay an interest of 15 per cent per annum on the N872,780,522.84 from May 17, 2011, when the advanced payment guarantees expired till judgment and thereafter at the rate of 10 per cent per annum until final liquidation Through Zenith Bank’s team of counsel led by Prof. Fabian Ajogwu, SAN and Mr Sylva Ogwemoh, SAN, the bank challenged Justice O.

Elebuibon, Olatubosun, Don Harp On Harnessing Yoruba Cultural Heritage Through Ijala – Naijanewsdirect

  The Oyo State Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Dr. Wasiu Olatubosun, the Araba Awo of Osogbo, Chief Yemi Elebuibon, a Professor of Legal History, Prof. Akinkunmi Adegbola Alao, and other culture advocates have observed a need to constantly look into ways of harnessing the intellectual foundation of an indigenous genre of music, 'Ijala', in developing the society. They made this observation at a lecture celebrating the 2022 Ijala Are-Ode Cultural Festival in Ibadan with the title ‘Ijala: Beyond Social Gyration to Intellectual Exposition of Yoruba Cultural Heritage’. Dr. Olatubosun, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Mr. Oye Oyedele suggested that a home-grown method of teaching the coming generation Yoruba culture is the only way Yorubas can occupy their rightful place in the comity of nations. He added that for the Yoruba race to conquer the world, they must appreciate who they are, learn the things of the race, and behave truly like Yorubas. Olatubosun said Oyo State Government, under Governor Seyi Makinde has shown commitment to resuscitating the Yoruba culture and tradition among the younger generation, through a re-introduction of history classes to public schools in the State. During his lecture, Prof. Akinkunmi Adegbola Alao said there is a need to go back to the basics, look beyond the social gyrations derived from Ijala by hunters, and find ways to deploy the intellectual foundation of Ijala in Yoruba cultural heritage. Alao enjoined historians to constantly research Yoruba cultural values that can benefit the society. The Scholar noted that although the immediate purpose of any traditional music performances is to entertain, the genre of music could influence a renaissance of Yoruba Culture and traditions. He enjoined Africans, especially the Yorubas to embrace and leverage indigenous technology to develop human society. "We need to go back to the basics. Go beyond just the gyrations of individuals,

Why INEC Should Obey Primate Ayodele’s Stand On Use Of BVAS in 2023 Election – Naijanewsdirect

  It seems as if Primate Ayodele wanted attention when he warned INEC to take its stand on ensuring BVAS technology is used during the 2023 general elections but the APC have opened the eyes of Nigerians to what the man of God saw before making such warning. The national chairman of the APC and publicity secretary openly noted yesterday that they are not in support of the BVAS technology to run the election because ‘Nigeria is not yet matured’ for that kind of technology. This statement means so much as it came from the ruling party, this is definitely something to be worried about because if the ruling party can speak against a technology that will eradicate rigging in our elections then something is not right. Little wonder Primate Ayodele made the statement last week, asking INEC not to fall for the tricks of any political party that wants to stop the use of BVAS technology during the election. He specially referred to the INEC chairman, telling him that he has a huge role to play in the election. These were his words ’’INEC must not allow BVAS to be removed for the 2023 general elections; the chairman must take his stand because this will give him an edge. The election is crucial, it will let us know if Nigeria will remain one, so the INEC chairman must be patriotic. He has a huge role to play’’ ( As little as this message is, the pronouncement of the ruling party has called for INEC’s need to strictly adhere to it because of the repercussions that may follow if compromise sets in. The chairman of the electoral commission needs to lay down a legacy for free and fair elections with 2023 general elections because if it is anything short of this, Nigeria may not be the same

Agunbiade said: "At a time just before our trip to Jos, I had headache and he showed a lot of care. He even told someone that he would be in Lagos before dawn. We got to Jos together, had our activity. He did not show any sign of illness." Hon. Victor Akande recalled how Olawale joined him and the others at the airport before the trip. "I was the one that called Omititi that it was time for us to go to the airport. I was with Hon. Jude Idimogu. He immediately asked me if I had taken my drugs and even showed me where to get water. He even helped one of us to get his boarding pass," Akande said. The lawmaker denied a report that the late Olawale owed a local government chairman. "He

Nigerians React As Pregnant Woman Caught Sleeping With Her Pastor Commits Suicide – Naijanewsdirect

The pregnant woman who was caught by her husband, sleeping with her pastor in their matrimonial bed is dead. Recall that a video had surfaced online on Thursday, 17 November. In the video, the distraught husband caught his wife identified as Martha, butt-naked with the pastor and immediately turned on his phone camera and started recording the adulterers as he condemned the woman. The pastor could be seen frantically putting on his underwear in a bid to conceal his nakedness while the pregnant wife who showed instant remorse was trying to get close to her angry husband to beg him but the man wasn’t listening at that point. Fetish items such as calabash, gourd, red and black material, burning candles and what looks like a pot can be seen in the centre of the room. The video shared on Twitter had caused uproar in the social media platform, with many tweeps shocked to see a pregnant woman cheating.
