Ministerial list on fire between former president, Pa Obasanjo and former lagos state governor, Sir Tinubu

Published

on

  According to New Telegraph Edun, who Tinubu had suggested to Buhari as minister of finance, has been overlooked despite being screened by the security service.

He is to be replaced by the former Lagos state commissioner for budget and economic planning, Yemi Cardoso, as a Lagos representative in the cabinet. Obasanjo, together with Ibikunle Amosun, the Ogun state governor, also reportedly opposed Tinubu’s decision to ensure Edun became the Ogun state appointee.
The former president reportedly called Tinubu and urged him to stop pushing Edun as the Ogun state nominee. He was said to have cautioned that Ogun people would not let Tinubu fill the slot of the state with somebody whose work and career were rooted in Lagos state.
Obasanjo and Amosun have decided to give the state’s slot in the cabinet to a former PDP national auditor, Chief Bode Mustapha. Insiders said the two recent visits of Obasanjo to Buhari in Abuja were first to submit his ministerial list and for further discussions.
Appointees of the former president in Buhari’s cabinet comprise the former Osun state governor, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola (Osun); the former governor of Ekiti state and now the deputy national chairman (South) of the APC, Chief Segun Oni (Ekiti); Mustapha (Ogun), the former minister of education, Oby Ezekwesili and the erstwhile governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Prof. Chukwuma Soludo.
The source further said: “Tinubu and Akande’s visit to President Buhari on September 9 was an impromptu meeting. An influential official in the presidency told them of Obasanjo’s surreptitious moves to corner the ministerial nominees from the South-West. This is why the two leaders visited.”
“On Obasanjo’s ministerial list, former Governor Oyinlola featured just as his name featured from the list submitted from the state. There was no resistance to Oyinlola’s nominee because that was part of the agreement before his defection from the PDP to the APC. The party has fulfilled one leg of the agreement by ceding the senatorial slot to Senator Isiaka Adeleke who also defected from PDP to the APC,” a significant member of the APC said.
The source added that based on Tinubu’s grievance, the president pledged to look into the issue.

Davido threatens to sue Dammy Krane for defamation, cyberbullying

Davido has threatened to sue Dammy Krane over alleged defamation of character and cyberbullying.

Krane, in a post via X on Friday, accused Davido of being a “murderer” while hurling curses at the ‘OBO’ hitmaker.

He also shared a video of Davido and Chioma and alleged that the 31-year-old is getting married because “your girl caught you cheating”.

But in a statement on Friday, Chikaosolu Ojukwu, Davido’s legal representative, said Krane’s allegations “are unverified, false, and outlandish”.

The lawyer described Krane’s post as “malicious, orchestrated to defame and injure the reputation of Davido”.

“We are informed by our client that you have repeatedly published statements on your social media platforms that he finds not only defamatory and offensive but which also constitute an act of cyberbullying,” the statement reads.

“The false nature of your publications is evident, and it is clear that you have not verified their accuracy. The malicious nature of your post is also evident from your subsequent post taunting our client and stating that “HE CAN’T SUE BECAUSE I SPEAK THE TRUTH OPONU”, when in fact you know your allegations to be false and outlandish.”

Krane was also asked to delete the tweet on Davido within 24 hours or face legal action, including damages and injunctive relief.

“Within 24 hours from the date of this letter, remove and retract the offensive publication from all your social media platforms,” it added.

“Immediately refrain from any further publication of defamatory statements against our client on any platform whatsoever.

“Take notice that your failure to comply with these demands within the stipulated timeframe will compel our client to pursue all available legal remedies, including but not limited to initiating legal proceedings against you for damages and injunctive relief, and escalating this matter to the relevant law enforcement agencies.”

The singers have not been on good terms since 2022 after Krane accused Davido of unpaid debts.

Social media was recently sent agog after Wizkid referred to Don Jazzy as an influencer while replying to an alleged diss comment from Mavin Records signee Ladipoe.

Rapper Ladipoe posted that Afrobeats stars were going through their own “Afrobeats is dead era” after Nigerian hip hop had been through the “hip hop is dead era”.

Wizkid had earlier commented that “hip hop was dead” which generated criticism and reactions from Nigerian rappers with Oladips and Zila Oaks releasing diss records aimed at the Grammy winner.

Ladipoe’s comments were considered by some fans to be targeted at Wizkid whose attention was called to it during an online interactive session with fans.

Wizkid reacted to Ladipoe’s statement by saying he can’t engage a rapper signed to an influencer in a comment that drew reaction and criticism for being disrespectful to Mavin Records boss Don Jazzy.

Wizkid asked me to take down our song, says Terry G

Published

By

Terry G, the Nigerian singer, has revealed that Wizkid’s legal team demanded the removal of ‘Mary Jane’ from streaming platforms.

‘Mary Jane’, a song by Terry G featuring Wizkid, was recorded several years ago but was released in April.

In a recent interview on Afrobeats Podcast, Terry G disclosed that the track was recorded in his studio in 2016.

He said he did not seek approval from Wizkid’s management before putting out the song.

Terry G said Wizkid’s lawyers reached out to him to take the song down, adding that he has directed his team to comply.

“To be honest, ‘Mary Jane’ was recorded years ago. He came to my house in 2016, right inside my studio,” he recalled.

“I didn’t clear the song I made with him because in my era we don’t clear songs, we do collaborations based on love.

“I got an email and my management contacted me. They didn’t want to tell me so that I wouldn’t feel bad. They said his lawyer messaged them about what is going on.

“I have dropped the song and requested that it be pulled down, and I am sure they will do that. The lawyers have also reached out to me to take the song down.”

Despite their perceived misunderstanding, Terry G expressed his admiration for Wizkid, describing him as the “Jay Z of this generation”.

He recounted how they both recorded songs in his house, adding that those were “one of the greatest moments for me” in the music industry.

“The memory I had with Wizkid is good, we ended with love and I placed him so much on a high priority,” he said.

“He came to my house, we recorded about four songs, and I appreciate it. We did a lot, and that was one of the greatest moments for me in this music game we were playing.

“Wizkid is the Jay Z of your generation. There is something I like about Wizkid. It’s not about what you have but how you carry it. He’s got that carriage and he inspires a lot.”
