The league of Imams and Alfas in Ekiti state have denied reports that it ordered Ekiti residents who are muslims not to accept the state Governor, Ayo Fayose’s Sallah ram and rice gifts

In a statement released today by the General secretary of the league, Alhaji Abdulrazak Adenipekun.

Our attention has been drawn to media reports credited to a certain Alhaji Quadri Oguntuase, who claimed to have spoken as the Assistant Secretary General of the League of Imam and Alfas in Ekiti State.

First and foremost, we wish to state that position of Assistant Secretary General does not exist in the League of Imam and Alfas in Ekiti State. Therefore, the said Alhaji Quadri Oguntuase is an impersonator, who assumed a non-existing position in the League of Imams and Alfas, ostensibly to carry out the sinister plot of his sponsors to cause disaffection among Muslims in Ekiti State on one hand, and between the State Government and Muslim faithful.

Secondly, the President of the League of Imams and Alfas in Ekiti State, Alhaji Jamiu Kewulere Bello is presently on Holy Pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia and he did not authorize any meeting of the League of Imams and Alfas.
Thirdly, the General Secretary of the League of Imams and Alfas in Ekiti is Alhaji Abdulrazak Adenipekun, and it is the duty of the Secretary General to issue notice of meetings as directed by the president.
In this instance case, no notice of meeting was issued by the General Secretary and no directive was given by the President for any meeting to be held.

Therefore, we wish to dissociate the League of Imams and Alfas in Ekiti State from the purported press statement credited to Alhaji Quadri Oguntuase, one Fatai Jimoh who claimed to have represented Ansar-u-deen Missioner and Imam Abdul Rasak.
While we do not want to get involved in politics as a religious organisation, we must however state that the State Governor, Dr Peter Ayodele Fayose has demonstrated the highest level of respect for Muslim faithful in the State. That can be seen from how he, for the first time in the history made a Muslim one of the three senators representing Ekiti State. Also, one of the two House of Assembly members representing Ado Local Government is a Muslim.
It is the height of political mischief for anyone or group of people masquerading as League of Imams and Alfas in Ekiti to want to use our revered religious (non-political) organization to promote their own personal political agenda.
We are non-political and it amounts to ridiculing the name of the Almighty Allah and our great Prophet Mohammed for anyone or group to drag the Islamic Religion into politics. 
We therefore wish to warn those behind the mischief to stop or risk the wrath of the Almighty Allah (SWT).

On the purported call on Muslims in Ekiti State not to receive Sallah Gifts from Governor Fayose, we wish to state that Muslims in the State are not only expecting Sallah Gifts from the governor, we will gladly accept the gifts.
We must also state that Governor Fayose has never discriminated against Muslims in the State. During his first tenure, he appointed the Muslim Permanent Secretary in Ekiti State, in person of Alhaji Yakubu Sanni.
During his present tenure, apart from having a Muslim Senator for the first time, the governor’s Special Adviser on Political Matters is a Muslim, so also the Chairman of Ado Ekiti local Government.
Also, the governor appointed a Muslim woman as Principal Confidential Secretary to the governor for the first time in the history of the State. As at today, not less than 30 Muslims, including Hausa and Ebira have been appointed by the governor and we are hopeful that he will appoint more Muslims into his government.
We are therefore solidly behind the governor and in the overall interest of Ekiti State, we will continue to pray for the success of his administration.
Alhaji Abdulrazak Adenipekun

*Oh Lord this can’t be usssssss. Peace be with you all. Amen

My kidney issues started in 2016… I was shocked when my wife offered to help, says Eedris Abdulkareem

Eedris Abdulkareem, the ace rapper, says his kidney troubles started seven years ago.

In July 2022, the rapper was diagnosed with kidney failure, prompting him to publicly seek financial support.

Yetunde Sekinat Abdulkareem, the rapper’s wife, had opted to donate a kidney for her ailing husband.

Eedris, after his successful surgery, released a song to thank his wife for her “support” and “compassion”.

In a chat with TVC, Abdulkareem said he first felt kidney pains seven years ago but it worsened years later.

“About seven years ago, I started feeling that something was wrong with my right kidney. I always feel pain, so I decided to go to the hospital. The doctor told me my kidney is very weak and that I needed to be careful,” he said.

“About two years ago, I discovered that the pain increases. We went to the hospital and the doctor confirmed I had a stage four kidney problem. He said the only thing I could do was to start dialysis.

“He said it could be reversed if I do the first and second but, if that doesn’t happen, the best option is to do a transplant. My wife called her friend who did a transplant and she said we should see Doctor Bamgboye.

“We booked an appointment and went to St. Nicholas Hospital. The doctor did checkups. He said I had to bring a donor and it has to be a family member: a brother, sister, father, or mother who has to be 18 and above to 65.

“My wife there asked the doctor if she could be a donor for me and he replied, ‘yes, if you’re compatible’. She asked how she could know that and the doctor spoke of some tests. She said, ‘can we do that now?’ I was shocked.

“We never discussed it. She did the first and second tests, and she was. We were to do up to 15. On the last one, while I was on my dialysis bed, the doctor said they saw something in her that might render her incompatible.

“She took the 15th test and the doctor took the results to see a professor. The doctor said there was nothing wrong, adding that some growths come up inside the human body that might not necessarily be cancerous.”

Published

By

More Grace Music World, the management of Skiibii, has reacted to a recent interview granted by Dorcas Shola-Fapson, the ex-lover of the singer.

In the controversial interview, the actress insinuated that her ex-boyfriend stole her valuables during a vacation in Zanzibar, Tanzania.

Shola-Fapson said the stolen valuables include two phones, laptops, credit cards, a Rolex watch, and cash.

But in a statement on Monday, the singer’s management set the record straight on what transpired during the vacation.

The statement said the hotel where Skiibii and the actress lodged was robbed during their vacation, adding that the singer also lost his valuables.

“The label has been inundated by messages and telephone phone calls from friends and well-wishers regarding an interview (“the interview, granted by one Dorcas Shola Fapson (aka Ms DSF)- the estranged lover of our artist, Mr. Abbey Elias (aka Skiibii),” it reads.

“In the interview, the estranged lover made inferences to the fact that she was robbed while on vacation with her ex-boyfriend. Specifically, she stated that her mobile phone, laptop and other valuables were stolen, while she and her ex-boyfriend were asleep at their resort in Zanzibar, Tanzania,

“Whilst the above matter has been referred to our lawyers for appropriate review and action, we wish to state for the records that;

“a. Skilbil and DSF once went on vacation to Zanzibar on 19th June 2022 and returned to Lagos on 25th June 2022.

“b. The trip was paid for by the estranged lover as a birthday gift to Skiibii, as she stated that she would not be around for Skiibii birthday-5th July 2022.

“c. The villa where Skiibii and the estranged lover lodged was robbed on 22nd June 2022, as well as other neighboring villas and the following items belonging to Skiibii were also reported missing- two diamond necklaces, one rose gold cartier wristwatch, diamond rings (4 pieces), one Iphone; and cash in different currencies.

“d. The matter was reported to the Tanzanian police immediately on 22nd June 2022 and statements of all the victims were taken, including that of Skiibii and his estranged lover

“e. Skiibii and his estranged girlfriend no longer felt safe in the said villa, accordingly, Skiibii booked and paid for a new villa for the rest of their vacation.

“f. Upon their return to Lagos, Skiibii bought a new iPhone for his estranged lover to replace her stolen phone.

“g. Prior to the trip, Skilbii had gotten his estranged lover a new MacBook pro laptop, which she did not travel with and as such it was her old laptop that was stolen. Accordingly, there was no need for Skiibii to replace this item.

“h. Skiibii’s cartier rose-gold watch was stolen in the raid and he bought the silver variant of the watch in September 2022, as the stolen watch has not been recovered or found by the Tanzanian police. The new watch was purchased in South Africa and delivered to Lagos by Skiibil’s friend Larry Gaga.”

The statement added that the singer will take legal action against the actress for “defamation” in due course.

“Please remain assured that Skibii is a law-abiding citizen and he will be seeking redress for the defamatory statements made by the estranged lover in the court of law,” it added.
