Senator Solomon Olamilekan Adeola

 

By: Oladapo Sofowora

 

 

Like the popular axiom; ‘People only throw stones at a tree that bears fruit’; this quote aptly captures the current situation of Senator Olamilekan Solomon Adeola Yayi, Senate Chairman on Finance as some section of people have kicked against his chieftaincy as the Aremo of Yewaland. For the most distinguished senator who has over the years worked assiduously to give quality representation to the people of Lagos state and his state of origin Ogun state, He stands unflinching and true to his purpose of impacting and service to humanity through public service. His ancestral lineage in Ilaro, Ogun state has generated mixed reactions amidst may political opposition who are quite envious of the Grace of his creator on his life.

 

The Yewa Born Lagos raised Political starlet is unperturbed of the lingering crisis surrounding his nomination by the Olu of Ilaro, Oba Kehinde Olugbenle, the Paramount ruler of Yewa Land. Many claimed Senator Yayi should not be conferred the Aremo of Yewaland title saying it’s a title reserved for the king’s first son only. They are quick to forget that; as a son of the soil, a king can decide to adopt anybody as his son. A king is automatically the father of anyone from the kingdom and reserves the right to confer on anyone the traditional title that he so wishes. “For someone of Yayi’s caliber, anybody will be happy to call him his son and confer on him the privileges of a son. Kabiyesi has found a son in him. For someone who you call and answers, a million-time such person is a son. He is a good ambassador of Yewa. Those who have issues with the authenticity of his root should do a background check. what do they want again?,  His family had on several occasions disclosed that he is their son and they have given the public the name of his father they still don’t believe. He should not prove anything to anybody again. Do they think Olu of Ilaro would not have carried out his findings on Yayi before conferring on him such a huge title? ” A source added.

 

What is Yayi’s sin?? A close source disclosed that; ever since Yayi made his intention known to go back to his root and serve his people after meritoriously serving the people of Lagos for years as a member of the Lagos Assembly to the Lower National Assembly and now a two-term senator representing Lagos West, that is the genesis of his sin. With this and many more,  the most distinguished senator has stirred the hornet nest. Those who clamored of his return back home are aware of the enormous bills and developmental project he has attracted to Lagos West. His political coordination and Omoluwabi status is an endearing feature that keeps him in the mind of many. Even those who oppose anything he does know for a fact that Yayi is an asset that not only Lagos should enjoy. They are aware that if he returns back home, he will do what he has done to Lagos to Ogun State seamlessly.

 

“When he decided to come back home in 2015, erstwhile Ogun State Governor Senator Ibikunle Amosun kicked vehemently against his return home known fully well of his political Magic wand and the amount of momentum and followers he would gather. With his filial relationship with President Buhari and his commando-style of intimidation, he tried everything humanly possible to ensure Yayi stayed back in Lagos. For the cool-headed politician whom many often ask why such a gentle refined and highly cerebral man would be doing in politics a game perceived to be dirty, instead of fighting his oppressor, he opted to tow the path of peace and stayed back in Lagos to avoid break down of law and order. He was intimidated that his house was demolished by the government, several campaigns of calumny sponsored against him. Despite all the smear campaigns, the small body big-engine politician weather the storm gained more followers and recognition for his act of peace.” A close source disclosed.

 

Fast forward to 2020 when the Politician saw that it was the right time to serve his people and give them quality representation his supporters have launched a ‘West 2 West agenda’. As a Lagos West senator, he sponsored a bill for the Federal Polytechnic Ilaro to be converted to a degree-awarding institution. Which has been approved by the senate. This and many more he has done. The senator representing the senatorial district we gather is not happy with Yayi’s move. Those in the know averred that it’s a win for all as the glory should go to all sundry from the district. Instead of the senator representing the district to work closely with Yayi to achieve his said goals, he opted to take him as an enemy and arch-rival. Unshakable Yayi remained focused. In 2023, he will officially return back to his ancestral state to contest under Ogun West senatorial district. From all indications and permutation from political pundits, instead of the senator representing the district to stay focused and work for the masses who elected him, he is busy fighting shadows to truncate Yayi’s 2023 plan. Source averred that; “Yayi’s political structure is a very scary one. The incumbent Ogun West senator is aware that leaving them both on the field of play, Yayi will floor him hands down. Yayi is a born politician loved by many for his endearing and loveable personality. He is accessible and approachable and gives a listening ear. We cant have such material and opt for a mediocre. It’s time we elect someone who will leave bad politics alone and focus on developmental projects. Yewa people are tired of stunted representation. Yayi is the best man for the job and we are ready to make his plan actualize.” A party loyalist who claimed anonymity disclosed.

 

As the controversy continues, Olu of Ilaro has spoken and his authority cannot be rescinded. It’s a taboo for anybody to say the authority of the King does not stand. If it were to be in the days of yore, such an individual will be beheaded, banished or thrown inside the prison for challenging the authority of the King. As it stands, Yayi is the Aremo of Yewaland. If because he has shown interest to uplift and serve his state the same way he has done to Lagos and some people are not happy, it means they are not progressive-minded people. They are only blindfolded by mere hearsay and politricks rather than trying to decipher good from evil. The West 2 West Agenda has come to stay the earlier the opposition sees this and accepts the better. “Yayi is a moving train that cannot be stopped by mere disparaging talks or casting aspersions at his persona. That’s why his sobriquet is Omo toh Yayi… He will always stand out in any of his dealings. He remains one of the most distinguished Senators of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and he commands respect even from the leadership of the senate.” A source disclosed.

Qualities We Must Celebrate in Apostle Johnson Suleman, by Prophetess Rose Kevin

Published

It is obviously true that God receives more honour from us when we praise somebody other than God, in the same way that the heavens are declaring the glory of God. Yet, it is rare to find us praising fellow men for sharing kindness, especially if such men are from within the same field or family as we are. One woman, a prophetess, Rose Kelvin, is standing out in this regard. She is proclaiming the qualities of Apostle Johnson Suleman, a fellow but senior prophet of God in a manner that leaves tongues wagging even beyond their Christian community. 

 

Dissecting the context of Prophetess Kevin’s submission about Apostle Suleman’s activeness in the Christianity fold, “if indeed anything is commendable, we should take delight in commending it”. It implies that “as true Christians, we are commanded to esteem our leaders very highly because of their works in the Lord.”

 

Apostle Johnson Suleman is listed among top five Nigerian televangelists with impressive charity works. While Nigerians have been lamenting how leaders get richer and ordinary citizens remain below the poverty line, even in the Church, leading figures like Johnson Suleman and the likes have been changing the narrative by giving generously with their divine gifts and from their material possessions. Amazingly, Apostle Suleman does not just assist individuals with cash and material gifts, he does help the government too in providing succour to communities. He once personally sponsored the renovation of some federal roads in his native Edo State!

 

It is on that note that Prophetess Kevin praised Suleman by urging him not to relent in exploiting the rare opportunity he enjoys as a leader that cares to continue to increase lives, notwithstanding the criticism. “No matter what people do or say, they can’t stop whom God has destined to go far. People don’t really talk about the good works a servant of God does. But God Himself is exhibiting Apostle Suleman for the people he helps at all time, the schools and roads he builds, and the lives he has touched and still touches,” posits Prophetess Kevin, adding that “people who don’t glorify God for people’s good works are depriving themselves of the points of Christ Jesus’ teaching.”

 

While commending Apostle Suleman “for being Christlike”, Prophetess Keving encourages Christians to imbibe the teaching of Jesus “that people should always see the good in others’ good works because God is at work in them.”

 

Prophetess Rose Kelvin is happily married to Dr Kelvin Nwafor the Presiding Bishop Of Shekhinah Glory Ministries worldwide and their union is blessed with five children.

“There is always a lot to spend money on, and sometimes the bills can’t wait for the salary to be paid” Tope complained when his wife informed him that they had run out of cooking gas and had to refill. He had just moved to a new location with his family and the bills seemed to be coming at such speed that he could hardly keep up. Barely three weeks in the new apartment, the electricity bill had arrived.  The new apartment was bigger than the last and their two double-seater cushions left too much space vacant in the seating room. They needed to get a couple more pieces of furniture to fill the space. His wife had not stopped reminding him of the car he promised to get, in order to ease mobility for the family. 

Everyone has been a Tope at some point in time, and that is why everyone needs a financial partner like FirstBank, Nigeria’s premier and leading financial services brand.

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.
