Shocker!! House of reps member representing Ikeja constituency has been pick as APC deputy governship candidate for kogi state

Kogi 2015: James Faleke emerges Abubakar Audu’s running mate

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has officially picked James Abiodun Faleke, the lawmaker representing Ikeja Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives as its deputy governorship candidate for Kogi State, northcentral Nigeria.

Faleke, chairman of the House Committee on Ethics, Anti-corruption and National Values in the Seventh Assembly, was also former two time chairman of Ojodu Local Council Development Area (LCDA) of Lagos State as well as ex-Chairman of Conference 57, umbrella organisation for the chairmen of the 20 local governments and 37 LCDAs in Lagos State.

Faleke’s choice was regarded a round peg in a round hole which was applauded by many especially leaders of the party at all levels.

This was based on account of his commitment and loyalty to the party.

He has emerged as one of the younger elements of committed party members thus an integral member of the engine room of the National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Faleke has undertaken several assignments for the party and came out with flying colours, the most recent being his sterling performance as the Coordinator of the Lagos Office of the Buhari/Osinbajo Campaign Organisation.

Highlight of his role then was organising a walk-to-freedom programme during which hundreds of thousands of party supporters and members including the current Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Governor of Osun State, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola; Senator Oluremi Tinubu among others participated.

In 2011, Faleke was also in the trenches in Kogi State campaigning and working for Audu who was then governorship candidate of the former Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN).
Faleke is also a deep rooted grassroots mobiliser who is well loved by many for several qualities including humility, loyalty, commitment and diligence.

Omowunmi, the wife of the late singer Mohbad, has accused Joseph Aloba, her father-in-law, of being an “enemy”.

Mohbad died on September 12, 2023, and was buried the following day. On September 21, his body was exhumed by police for an autopsy.

Eight months later, the autopsy failed to determine the cause of death as the singer’s body had decomposed when tests were conducted.

In a post on her Instastory on Wednesday, Wunmi alleged the “greatest enemy” of Liam, her son with Mohbad, is the singer’s father.

“Liam’s greatest enemy is his grandfather. Life is funny,” she wrote in the now-deleted post.

David Hinds accuses Burna Boy of disrespecting Reggae band at German festival

Published

David ‘Electric’ Hinds, the lead singer and guitarist of Steel Pulse, has called out Burna Boy for allegedly disrespecting the Grammy award-winning Reggae band, at a German festival.

The 2024 Summer Jam Festival was held in Germany from July 5 to 7.

The event headliners were Burna Boy and Jamaican artistes such as Skillibeng, Konshens, Busy Signal, Lila Ike, Beenie Man, and Ky-Mani Marley.

In a comment beneath an Instagram post about the festival, Hinds claimed Burna Boy arrived at the event with a large entourage and demanded additional dressing rooms to accommodate his team.

He accused the Afrofusion singer of attempting to force him and fellow Steel Pulse members out of their dressing room.

Hinds argued that Burna Boy and his crew’s behaviour cannot be a part of Reggae’s culture, which promotes peace, love, and unity.

The reggae artiste also criticised the festival organisers for allowing his band to be “bullied” by Burna Boy’s security team.

“Burna Boy and security crew fully disrespected us at Steel Pulse, trying to kick us out of our dressing room so he could have 4 dressing rooms for his massive entourage,” he wrote.

“Selwyn Brown, original member of Steel Pulse, was livid and our team stood our ground and told them to beat it and you can’t do that to people, especially to a band that has paved the way for Reggae music.

“Summer Jam why do you have a full security team that think they can come in and bully people? Who the hell does Burna Boy think he is?

“And because of us refusing to leave, the security team proceeded to build a barricade of a blacked out chain linked fence that split the hallway between our dressing room and his dressing room making it feel like we were in prison or something.

“I hope that these legendary reggae festivals realize that this can’t be apart of the reggae culture. That’s Babylon business. We don’t treat people like that.

“Please recognise this because Steel Pulse was fully disrespected. Reggae promotes Peace, Love, Unity.. stand up for your rights, we must never give up the fight.”

As of the time of this report, neither Burna Boy nor the organisers of Summer Jam have responded to the allegations.
