However, that is not to say she is not present. She simply detests joining bandwagon of empty barrel that makes the loudest noise, rather, she holds a strong belief in letting her work speak for her.

Light skinned and beautiful boss of Global New Herbal Life, Ogidan, didn’t dabble into herbal medicine out of non-availability of what to do, factually, she was doing excellently well in her business as a travel agent. According to articulate and eloquent Funmi, her encounter with infertility made her path crossed indigenous medicine.

 

“It was a personal experience that took me into it. I had fertility challenges and I did every single thing every woman would do. I did IVF, went into hospitals but realized at the end of the day,i wasn’t able to get anything out it”. Funmi said.

 

It was at this point she decided to look elsewhere for possible solution and she decided to give herbal medicine a try. Funmi commenced research, the exercise led her to being able to make some herbal medicine which she started drinking, and finally, her exploit paid off as she hit the target. Today, she’s a proud mother of two. Her discovery brought about a strong belief that she could actually do more than just the fertility solution to help humanity. However, she wouldn’t depend on how she did research to get infertility solution, rather, she took steps to broaden her knowledge by going the right way to seeking professional training.

Chairperson Global New Herbal Life, Funmi Lawrence -Ogidan
“I did a couple of trainings in herbal science and drug technology in Cyrillic Herbal School. I also did Advance Diploma in Herbal Medicine in University of Lagos . I also did Homeopathy and Herbal Production with the African/American University, among other trainings and workshops. I also had trainings with the local fathers, the Babas, being the custodians of the herbal heritage. I trained with about four of them, even with Iyaloja. I was able to sit with them to learn identification of herbs and things like that. I basically didn’t limit myself to the classroom, I went to the field for the practicals.” Funmi explained.

Appeal Court Exonerate Zenith Bank, Upturns High Court Judgement Slam Fine on Real Integrated & Hospitality Limited

Published

By

court

After several months of legal tussle between Zenith Bank Plc v Real Integrated & Hospitality Limited and State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) Gombe State, a three-man panel in the Court of Appeal sitting in Lagos led by Justice Muhammed Sirajo in Appeal No:CA/LAG/CV/262/2022 – have unanimously upturned the Lagos State High Court judgment of Justice O. O. Abike-Fadipe over claims that; on March 8, 2022, there was a breach of contract because on October 7, 2011, Zenith Bank refused Real Integrated to withdraw from its Account No. 1012465427.

 

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. O. Abike-Fadipe’s decision of awarding N2,500,000 as the cost of the action in favour of Real Integrated. The legal team via valid argument backed by proofs argued and sought an order setting aside the lower court decision on the ground that it acted in full compliance with its contractual obligations in line with the Advanced Payment Guarantee (APG) contract and that the trial court was wrong. The Court of Appeal, in a unanimous decision on November 23, agreed with the bank’s submission and resolved all the issues raised in its favour. It was gathered that; the 1st Respondent, through its Counsel, E.O Jakpa, argued that the bank breached the contract while SUBEB Gombe State did not contest the Appeal.

Apart from the appellate court setting aside the judgment of Justice Abike-Fadipe, the judge also awarded a cost of N200,000 against Real Integrated & Hospitality Limited and in favour of Zenith Bank. The appeal court further stated that the lower court judgment was upturned on the ground that the trial court was wrong to have presumed that the bank withheld the full account statement of Real Integrated in the light of Exhibit C6 (the comprehensive Statement of Account of Real Integrated), which was tendered by the bank for a limited purpose, adding that there was no need for the lower court to have invoked Section 167 (d) of the Evidence Act, 2011 against the bank.
