Italian women lawmakers win right to breastfeed in Chamber

Published

on

The Italian women Members of Parliament (MPs) have been granted the right to breastfeed their babies in the Chamber during debates, as announced by the committee responsible for the Chamber’s rules.

According to the declaration on Tuesday, breastfeeding members of the chamber of deputies will also be allowed to sit in the top row of the assembly or in a reserved gallery.

According to the American weekly magazine, Barron’s, breastfeeding in the chamber, however, will only be permitted until the child’s first birthday.

The breastfeeding women in the legislative house up till now have had to isolate themselves in a separate room set aside for the purpose.

“This good practice, which guarantees the full enjoyment of an inalienable right, is a strong signal from the most representative assembly in Italian democracy,” said Gilda Sportiello, MP for the anti-establishment Five Star Movement (MS5), who initiated the parliamentary reform.

“Every woman should be able to breastfeed wherever she wants,” she added.

The M5S, a populist party that came out on top in the 2018 legislative elections, had many young mothers elected to parliament and has been campaigning to enable them to better combine work and family life.

Far-right MP Giorgia Meloni, who became prime minister at the end of October, had proposed such a measure in 2019 as part of her fight to make it easier for young mothers to work and to boost the birth rate in a country going through a “demographic winter”.

The leader of the Forza Italia (right-wing) group in the Senate, Licia Ronzulli, also welcomed the reform. As a young MEP, she was breastfeeding in the Strasbourg parliament where it is allowed.

“On the reconciliation of work and family, the institutions, called to legislate in this sense, must set an example,” she tweeted.

Tenant sues landlady for refusing to sell her house to him

Published

By

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.”
