Lam Onaolapo Adesina


By Kehinde Olaosebikan                   
Alhaji Lam Onaolapo Adesina, Oyo State Governor from May 29, 1999 to May 29, 2003, passed onto glory peacefully on Sunday, 11th of November after over 73 years of a very successful sojourn on earth.  Adesina rose to the pinnacle of all his callings in life.  He got to the zenith of his career as a teacher; as a social crusader he got state recognition and was tagged “prisoner of war”; and politically he did not only realise his ambition of becoming the governor of his state, he achieved the extra-ordinary by installing a governor, not while in power but eight years after he had left office.

Any Attempt to Give Boko Haram the 'Odi' Treatment Will be Taken as Attack on Muslim North-Northern

Written by Alaba Johnson with reports from Leadership.

Any Attempt to Give Boko Haram the 'Odi' Treatment Will be Taken as Attack on Muslim North-Northern Coalition

alt

Members of the Coalition of Northern Patriots have faulted former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s assertion that the Goodluck Jonathan administration was weak because it did not confront the Boko Haram menace the same way he handled the violence in Zaki Biam in Benue State and Oddi in Rivers State during his tenure.

Addressing journalists in Abuja yesterday, Ali Abacha and Engr Ibn Ahmed Mohammed, chairman and secretary of the group, said it was unfortunate that Obasanjo was advocating, yet again, the “callous destruction of the innocent citizens and their property as a mark of strong leadership.” Add a comment

North Sustained Nigeria Economically Before Oil was Discovered-Ango Abdullahi

Written by Alaba Johnson.

North Sustained Nigeria Economically Before Oil was Discovered-Ango Abdullahi

alt


Prof Ango Abdullahi, spokesperson of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), and the former Special Adviser to President Obasanjo and ex-vice-chancellor, Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, is very angry with the onshore offshore dichotomy which he wants reversed as he claims it is unfair to the North which sustained Nigeria economically before the discovery of oil.

Below are excerpts of the interview he gave the Hausa Service of the Voice of America (VOA)  

Residents of the oil-rich states are complaining that  oil exploration is destroying their environment. What is your take on this?
It is actually true that the drilling is destroying all these things, and that is why they are being allocated 13% of the budget. I am part of those who reluctantly agreed on the 13% in 1994 at the constitutional conference. The late Shehu Yar’Adua pleaded with us to agree on 13% because of the destruction on their farms, fishing places and homes. Add a comment
