Tinubu donates N100m to Kano flood victims

Published

Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has donated N100 million to flood victims in Kano.

According to NAN, Tinubu announced the donation during a dinner organised in his honour by the Kano business community council on Saturday.

He said the donation was aimed at alleviating the sufferings of the victims in the affected LGAs in the state.

He, however, called for sustained prayers to end flood disasters in the state and across the nation.

Tinubu further noted that the federal government had taken several measures to build infrastructure and improve the ease of doing business across the country.

Tinubu further promised that, if elected, he would ensure that Nigeria’s diversity served as a source of prosperity for all.

“Unity in diversity, peace and prosperity are the fulcrum of my mission in this contest,” he said.

The APC presidential candidate pledged to reposition existing industries and make them a competitive source of industrialisation and growth, not just for the North or Kano, but the entire country.

He also commended Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of the state, for his stride in infrastructure development.

Tinubu, who described Ganduje as a “friend and a reliable partner”, said that the relationship between Kano and Lagos dated back to years due to the similarities between the two economic giants.

The APC presidential candidate also promised the business community that he would provide enabling environment for businesses to thrive in the state.

He thanked the business community for the honour and promised to look into their blueprint if elected.

“If we win the election, we will call your representatives and see how we can move the nation forward,” he said.

Tinubu further promised that, when he gets into power, he would ensure that Nigeria’s diversity served as a source of prosperity for all.

“Unity in diversity, peace and prosperity are the fulcrum of my mission in this contest,” he said.

On his part, Ganduje said Tinubu has the capacity to provide the needed leadership that would consolidate and continue to ensure the country’s democratic gains.

“Kano is APC and APC is Kano. So, our people are on board, and we are soliciting for their support as usual,” he explained.

Ganduje said Tinubu was a leader who would unite and move the nation forward.

Tenant sues landlady for refusing to sell her house to him

Published

A high court in Lagos has dismissed a case filed by one Ademola Onitiju, a tenant, who sued his landlady for not selling her house to him.

In 2021, Onitiju, a retired air commodore and legal practitioner, took Theodosia Ogunnaike, the landlady of a four-bedroom duplex at Dolphin Estate in Ikoyi, to court for selling the property to another person after his initial negotiation with her.

The 59-year-old tenant, who started residing in the house in December 2015, said the property was first offered to him as first option to purchase but he did not pay for it immediately. Onitiju said he was initially asked to pay N170 million for the property, but he offered to pay N90 million instead, which was rejected by the landlady.

The retired airforce officer said during the renegotiation process, he sold two family properties to enable him to match the purchase price of N135 million which was later requested for. He said he asked for a bank account detail to pay the purchase price, but he was not provided with any until the property was sold out to one Samuel Dare, a retired colonel.

Onitiju admitted that the defendants did not ask him to sell the two family properties, “but they did by conduct when they insisted on the N135 million purchase price”. He also told the court that he does not have evidence of where the N135 million was lodged.

The tenant asked the court to set aside the sale of the property to the retired colonel.

Ogunnaike, a widow, said the property belongs to her daughter but she was managing it for her. The landlady said Onitiju used to pay his N4.5 million annual rent to her bank account and the rent was not increased during his stay, while they had a cordial relationship.

The landlady said the offer to buy the house was first made to Onitiju, but he did not have money to pay. Then, she terminated the offer made to the retired airforce officer after he made two counter offers of N90 million and N1oo million, and the sale of the property was thrown open to the public.

In her ruling on June 20, 2022, Bola Okikiolu-Ighile, the presiding judge, said Onitiju’s evidence before the court did not support any of the reliefs sought by him, and his case was bereft of facts. She subsequently dismissed the case.

“I find it difficult to grant any of the reliefs sought in the claims (i)-(vii). The claimant shall relinquish possession of the property to the new owners forthwith,” the judge ruled.

Onitiju has, however, appealed against the judgment.

Akeem Adeyemi, the Nollywood actor, has been attacked by thugs on a movie set in Lagos.

Wunmi Toriola, an actress, disclosed this via her Instagram page on Tuesday.

She said Adeyemi was attacked by “area boys” while he was filming in the Gbagada axis of the state.

Toriola also shared a video wherein Adeyemi is seen with a bloody eye lamenting about the “brutal attack”.

“See what area boys did. To what end. Peaceful filming turned this. Help. Sawmill Gbagada,” she wrote.

Reacting to the incident, Adebayo Salami, the ace actor, revealed that the culprit has been arrested.

He also charged the Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN) to intervene and ensure the safety of its members.

“This is an unacceptable experience. Though I am glad to know that the culprit has been apprehended by officers of the law, I enjoin the leadership of @tampanglobal to look into this situation as a matter of urgency,” he wrote.

“The safety and security of filmmakers are paramount to us. Beyond the physical assault, losing a day of production means more money has to be spent above the budgeted funds. No filmmaker wants to go through such stress. So sorry @iamakeemadeyemi and other production members.”
