KWAM 1’s Wife Emmanuella Ajike Morounropo Should be Arrested For Stealing………

Published

BY: OLADAPO SOFOWORA

 

 

Ever since her romance with the King of Fuji Music; Wasiu Ayinde Marshall broke, it has generated mixed reactions from all sundry. Emmanuella Morounropo has remained unperturbed and unflinching staying through to her man not minding the unnecessary controversies the news generated. Her name was on the lips of many like she was the one who allowed the cost of foodstuff to skyrocket. She received heavy bashing from acclaimed relationship freedom fighters and those close to her. In spite of all the noise-making tactics many thought would sweep her off balance, she remains dogged, unruffled, turning deaf ears to all unnecessary discussion cutting off toxic relationships around her.

 

Some averred that; with the controversies trailing K1 as regards his marital status, why would a promising beautiful lady like Emmanuella insist on settling with such a person but with the strong mind and will to always succeed in everything she ventures into, the Otun Iyalode of Igbehin has promised herself that regardless anything negative comment from people, her nuptial to K1 will flourish and succeed against all odds of those who are predicting a fall out after 2 years.

Emmanuella Ropo

For the want of a better description, Nuella is a misunderstood person, but one thing that remains constant in every conversation about her is having children from her previous marriages. In the real sense, that an individual does not get it right in the first 4 attempts does not mean the individual will not get it right trying again. Life is not about competition, everybody is not destined to get things right on the first attempt. Her past does not define who she is or be a determinant for her success in her new union. With so much experience, she came prepared for the worst and will paddle her loveship with her husband the way he wants it. But one thing remains a reoccurring decimal; it’s the love and affection they both have for each other. They never failed to display it at every given opportunity both online and offline.

 

Sources averred that; Nuella is a very caring and loving lady a feature that might have captivated her husband’s heart. Those close to K1 can also agree that; the Fuji maestro is a very caring individual who always stands by his own people. When both Husband and Wife have something in common, it’s a matter of loving each other unconditionally. On the wedding day, looking at K1’s countenance it’s glaring that he is drunk in Emmanuella’s love and Emmanuella is super excited to have married the Fuji Czar with all her heart.

K1 and Emmanuella Ropo in a passionate kiss

Making reference to the book of John 8:7, which said; “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” Like 2Face said in one of his music; ‘Nobody Holy Pass’; those making disparaging comments about her are worst if their past shrouded in secrecy is unraveled. For someone of K1’s age, with his street orientation, settling for a woman who would respect him, care for him and give him peace of mind is a big deal. All these are what Nuella did to further sweep K1 off his feet. What K1 might have seen in Nuella if we all climb the highest iroko tree, we might not be privileged to see it. People find love and fall in love for many reasons. in K1’s case. he caught the love bug in a different way for him to have decided to wife the Egba woman. Love is a beautiful thing and the happiness of K1, who put smiles on the faces of many should be considered. Someone of his nature who is salt to many events needs to be happy. If settling for Nuella will make him happy, he deserves our prayers and nothing more. For those casting aspersions about the bride, if she had rest of mind and fulfillment in her previous relationships, she would not have had any cause to leave. If she has found solace and love in KWAM 1, then let us pray and also support her to succeed in her nuptial union.

 

A close source disclosed that; those who are raising eyebrows are envious of the fact that K1 settled for her. They are jealous of the fact that, after trying to catch the Fuji lord’s attention, he settled for Nuella. “Don’t mind those naysayers most especially, the ladies talking gibberish online and offline. They are just jealous and envious. They are both married so the case is closed. No matter anything anyone says, it does not change the fact that she is married to him. They both understand each other and will never let any negative vibes come closer to their love. Women are supposed to be supporting their fellow women but what we see here is women beefing the success of their fellow women. Do they think K1 will leave Emanuella for them? The union is ordained from God nothing any human can do about it. They should focus more on healing from their bad belle.”

 

On a lighter note, Emmanuella should be arrested for stealing the heart of a global icon’s like K. She should be questioned thoroughly how she was able to achieve such a herculean task and later confined in a place with him without access to leave so we can have that beautiful baby bump to consummate their union. May they both witness peace and tranquility as they spend the rest of their lives together in good health and wealth.

Oil Giant Oando Plc: Ensuring Gender Parity

Published

on

By

Globalization has led to a discourse on leadership and management having different perspectives. Today, one of the discourses includes gender diversity in leadership positions across organizations. While the African continent comes third after the United States and Europe, and first amongst other emerging regions in terms of women’s representation on boardrooms of top listed companies, some sectors are doing better than others. In Nigeria, Africa’s largest economy, the banking sector is leading the pack. In what many observers have described as a paradigm shift, the Nigerian banking sector is currently seeing a surge in the number of women at its top echelon. Presently, eight women serve as Chief Executive Officers (CEOs)/Managing Directors (MDs) of the country’s leading banks.

Other sectors, especially the energy sector, hitherto a male dominated sector, is towing the line.  Shell Nigeria unveiled its first female Managing Director for deep-water Nigeria, last year. Most recently, Oando Plc, Nigeria’s leading indigenous energy solutions provider appointed two seasoned professional women to its board of Directors, Mrs. Ronke Sokefun and Mrs. Nana Fatima Mede.

A review of Oando’s culture shows that it’s been conscious of the imbalance within the sector and as such, has always prioritized two things: strengthening indigenous capacity and ensuring gender parity wherever possible. Today 43 per cent of the company’s workforce is female, compared to 22 per cent across the industry. Of this, 33% of executive-level employees are female with the hope that its female representation on its board continues to grow.

In an interview published in 2020 for Africa Oil Week, an Oando Executive said “As leaders, our focus is on building the most desirable company in which to work and invest. To do that, not only do you require vision, ambition, and passionate people, you need a balance of ideas and characters – which you get by prioritizing gender parity. Our desire to see a more gender-balanced company and in turn sector via proactive action has fuelled our commitment to making gender diversity a priority. This commitment is effected in every part of our business, from the offering of benefits that encourage women to return to work after maternity leave to our charity, Oando Foundation focusing on educating the girl child; reverberations that can be felt not only within our business but also the community at large. We have seen and reaped the benefits of a more inclusive business environment and thus inclusivity will always be a priority, one that we will champion until the industry achieves gender balance.”

Mrs. Sokefun, an Alumni of Oando, has over 35 years of work experience. In 2002, she moved to the Oando Group, where within a few years she rose to the position of Chief Legal Officer. During this period, she also sat on the Board of the telecom’s giant – Celtel/Zain (now Airtel) as an alternate Director. She served in this position until 2011 when she was called to public service in Ogun State and proceeded to serve as a 2-term Commissioner – holding diverse portfolios – under Senator Ibikunle Amosun’s 2-term administration as Ogun State Governor.

As conversations on climate change and harnessing sustainable energy sources continue to intensify, oil and gas companies are looking for ways to improve on their operations in line with global standards and requirements. In line with this, Oando appointed Mrs. Nana Fatima Mede, who has served as a Federal Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Environment where she coordinated the formulation of the Nigerian Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) document on Greenhouse Gases (GHG) in relation to Climate Change – a document which was presented by the President at the Conference of Party (COP 21) in Paris, 2015. She will showcased her expertise on clean energy to support the company’s ambitions.

The growth of female representation across corporate boards shows that unlocking the potential of Africa’s successful transformation requires concurrently removing barriers to women’s leadership and participation.

THE MAKING OF AN OLUBADAN

Published

on

By

By: Mogaji Wole Arisekola

 

 

Every family and clan in Ibadanland has a Mogaji. Mogajis are family heads. They control the affairs of their family and ensure law and order. They are made Mogajis by the Olubadan after they have been so appointed and the family written to formally inform the Olubadan and the Council. In Ibadan, there are over 2,500 Mogajis or family heads at present. The installation ceremony of Mogajis is often performed at the palace of the Olubadan with pomp and fanfare. A Mogaji is a potential Olubadan in waiting if he eventually succeeds to join the ladder. It takes a whole lot for a Mogaji to become Jagun, the lowest rung of the Olubadan ladder, as there are competitions from other Mogajis.

To become Jagun, however, Baale Ayorinde said there are three things to consider. A prospective candidate could be from an historical Ibadan warrior family or having done valiantly to save the land in one form or another. The candidate might also have done something worthwhile for his community or Ibadanland as a whole, while his wealth, which he had used for the uplift of the downtrodden, could be another consideration.

When there is vacancy for the Jagun position, the Olubadan-in-council would consider the prospective candidates and hereby appoint one to the Olubadan line or another to the Balogun line, depending on where there is vacancy. The appointees would now become Jagun on either and or both lines. The promotions of such Jaguns are not, however, random, as they are promoted in a sequential and orderly procedure. Upon vacancy in any of the lines, the title holder of a lower rung is promoted to the next rung of the ladder. The Balogun line has 23 rungs while the Olubadan line has 22 rungs. The next Olubadan alternates between the Balogun and the Otun

The promotion in the line of Balogun follows this pattern: From Jagun – Ajia – Bada – Are-Onibon – Gbonnka – Aare Egbe Omo – Oota – Lagunna – Are-Ago – Ayingun – Asaju – Ikolaba – Aare-Alasa – Agba-Akin – Ekefa – Maye –Abese – Ekarun Balogun – Ekerin Balogun – Ashipa Balogun – Osi Balogun – Otun Balogun and eventually to Balogun. The journey from Jagun to Balogun will take a prospective candidate through a 23-rung ladder, and, having reached the top of the ladder, he becomes Balogun and would, therefore, wait for his turn to emerge the Olubadan of Ibadanland.

The promotion in the line of Olubadan follows the same pattern, but is 22 rungs : From Jagun – Ajia – Bada – Aare Onibon – Gbonnka – Aare-Egbe Omo – Oota – Lagunna – Are-Ago – Ayingun – Asaju – Ikolaba – Aare-Alasa – Agba-Akin – Ekefa – Maye – Abese – Ekarun Olubadan – Ekerin Olubadan – Ashipa Olubadan – Osi Olubadan and finally to Otun Olubadan. The nomenclature looks the same with that of Balogun, until when the prospective candidate finally gets to the Ekarun Olubadan. Upon emergence as the Otun Olubadan, the candidate is set to emerge the next Olubadan of Ibadan land on his turn.

Baale Ayorinde gave English meanings of some of the titles thus: Otun – second in command/Commander of the right wing; Osi – third in command/Commander of the left wing; Asipa – Leader of the Vanguard; Ekerin – Fourth in Command; Ekarun – Fifth in Command; Abese – Superintendent of foot soldiers; Maye – Stationary Veteran Soldiers; Ekefa – Sixth in command; Agba-Akin – Chief of the Brave; Aare-Alasa – Chief of the Squire; Ikolaba – Sango’s apron man; Asaaju – Front ranker (front liner); Ayingun – Official war wager; Aare-Ago – Overseer of Blood Relations; Laguna – Swivel Lance Comptroller General; Oota – Sharp Shooter; Aare-Egbe-Omo – General of the Youth Wing; Gbonka – Dignified war wager; Aare-Onibon – Brigadier-General of Gun Combatant Shooter; Bada – Chief Spy; Ajia – Commissioner; Jagun – Warrior/Defender of the ruler.

When death occurs of any member on the ladder, there has to be installation ceremony to the next rank for affected candidates not less than 21 days after the burial of the last occupant. The Olubadan, upon notification of such death, will approve the promotion of others and perform installation ceremony for them at the palace. This is one of the reasons Ibadan chiefs are called Agbotikuyo (someone who rejoices at the death of another candidate).
Ori mi Dara,pe Ibadan ,ni won bi mi ooo eeee.Ibadan,ilu alaafe ilu oloye ti wa ni,ori mi dara,pe Ibadan ,ni won bi mi oóooo eeeee.

Apostle Suleman’s Unique Gifts, Healing and Prophecy @Yuletide

Published

on

Nothing is as beautiful as a man of God going beyond the pulpit to shower love on the people especially during the festive season. He is actually making them have the feeling that they are indeed valued and that God loves them. A few days before Christmas 2021, servant of God and Senior Pastor at the Omega Fire Ministries (OFM) worldwide, Apostle Johnson Suleman, began with his regular sharing of love by blessing members of the public with various kinds of gifts including cash, foods and expensive materials.

 

As one of the God-given Christian leaders, Suleman has always engaged in charitable giving which undeniably is a huge motivating factor that spurs many to give. Such an act from men of God like Suleman is also a big reason why individual giving in Nigeria has continued to rise despite the country’s slow economy.

 

He did not stop at that, a day before Christmas, Apostle Suleman had visited hospitals in Edo State where the headquarters of his Ministry is located, to pray for the sick for quick and divine healing while he also donated millions in cash for their treatment and restoration afterwards. Also, a day after Christmas, a young boy born with sealed lips enjoyed the mercy of God through Suleman who prayed and have the boy’s lips open, to the shouts of Hallelujah by worshippers at the capacity-filled post-Christmas special service at the OFM headquarters.

 

Asked what informs his passion for regular giving, the ‘Restoration Apostle’ posited that, “God wants to love the world through us and the world needs to experience God’s love through us. Love is our propelling force, love is our heartbeat, it powers every move, every action and inaction. Love is the express reflection of God’s heart. That should explain why we make sharing our priority.”

 

Outside charity, Apostle Suleman also explores his unique opportunity to propel the Christendom forward with power and vision. Many times, his divine messages, including yearly prophecies, have been confirmed accurate. It is, however, not debatable that the growth of Suleman’s OFM, with branches located in most of the world’s capital cities, is based mainly on his successes in healing, sharing and his ability to accurately predict future events.

 

As precisely foretold in one of Suleman’s past prophecies, Edo State now has the approval of the federal government to build a new airport. Apostle Suleman had said in 2020 that, “I saw aircrafts and white people around the Auchi axis. The construction will commence in 2022 and will be completed in the same year.” Auchi is a popular town in Edo State and the new airport will be built in Uzairue, a town close to Auchi.

 

 

Sharing their joy, the beneficiaries are thanking Apostle Suleman “for his heart of love and empathy for humanity.”
