Why I Kicked Against My Wife’s Third Term — Tinubu

Why I Kicked Against My Wife’s Third Term — Tinubu

Tinubu, explained that the “coup” was hatched prelude to the conduct of the last primary elections across the 245 wards of the 20 Local Government Areas in the state, last year.

He said this while addressing party leaders and members at a stakeholders’ meeting, prior to the postponed Presidential and National Assembly polls, at Police College, Play-Ground, Ikeja in Lagos.

Tinubu, who was reacting to the allegations  of imposition levelled against him, said some of his decisions are also being influenced by leaders in the party.

He said: “Let me tell the story of how Bayo Osinowo, APC Senatorial candidate for Lagos East emerged (displacing incumbent Senator Gbenga Ashafa). I was still thinking on the way to go for the primaries.

“I told them, we will not follow the third term syndrome. No candidate will go for a third term which also affected my wife Remi. I did not want her to go for a third term. But Prince Tajudeen Olusi, leader of the GAC and some members led the coup against that decision. I told them I wanted my wife back at home but they insisted that I must listen to them. And after much argument, I conceded and said I will obey you. That was how Remi got the APC third term ticket.

“Now coming to the East, (where Ashafa was also bidding to go for the third term and eventually lost out to Osinowo) I was contemplating on who could be our candidate when Kaoli Olusanya led leaders from Ikorodu to my house saying they have resolved to send Bayo Osinowo to the Senate for the East Senatorial District and that was it.”

He said the clarification became necessary following series of allegations of imposition of candidates levelled against him in some quarters, particularly, from the opposition parties.

To achieve victory at the poll, Tinubu announced the setting up of a Special Taskforce to take public complaints, mobilization, and monitoring of the exercise.

Tinubu, also urged the special taskforce, executives of the party to embark on final reconciliation of all aggrieved members through series of meetings in order to have a consolidated electoral victory across board.
WWE Legend The Undertaker Retires From Wrestling

WWE Legend The Undertaker Retires From Wrestling

WWE legend The Undertaker has retired from wrestling at the age of 53, with no WrestleMania comeback planned.

Talking about wrestling with anyone who used to be a fan will inevitably start a conversation about one of only a few men, John Cena, Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock or The Undertaker.

The Undertaker became one of the most iconic figures in sports entertainment since debuting with Vince McMahon’s company back in 1990.

According to Ringside News, the publisher and editor of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Dave Meltzer claims The Undertaker could be finished as an in-ring competitor.

And with no apparent appearance at WrestleMania 35 or either of WWE’s upcoming Saudi Arabia shows in the pipeline, the rumours could be true. Meltzer said:

He said: “At least as of a week ago he was not doing either [WrestleMania or Saudi Arabia] and obviously [WWE] can panic and the Saudi Arabia show if the Prince wants him they can offer him so much money to do it, but as of a week ago he was not on either show.

“So I think he’s retired as a wrestler.”

There had already been speculation about the seven-time WWE champion because he is due to make a non-wrestling appearance at Starrcast.

The event is a fans conference on the same weekend as AEW’s first show ‘Double or Nothing’ with the new independent company being considered as a potential future alternative to WWE.

ICYMI: Starrcast II is proud to bring a very special Undertaker Experience to Las Vegas this Memorial Day Weekend!

I Received About 50 Direct Messages From Ladies Hitting On Me After My Divorce Prank – Seyi Law Reveals

I Received About 50 Direct Messages From Ladies Hitting On Me After My Divorce Prank – Seyi Law Reveals

Last week, comedian, Seyi Law, made news after he announced on Instagram that he is separating from his wife, Stacey.  Seyi had posted;

''Due to irreconcilable differences would have been enough to announce this, but the kind and beautiful heart of my ex-wife must be stated. She is one of the best women I have ever known. It is however sad, that I announce that my wife and I have decided to part ways for good. We will appreciate your love and support at this time. God bless you. Tiwaloluwa is safe and good.”

He later quashed the news stating that his marriage of 8 years is intact and that he only pulled a  prank on Nigerians in order to get buzz for his show. He also apologised to his wife for the joke.

In an interview with Punch, Seyi said he received over 50 direct messages from women after the prank. He said the women were hitting on him.

''I was going to the UK to visit my wife and promote my show as well. While I was on the plane, I just had that weird idea. I was curious about what people’s reaction would be if they heard that Seyi Law was no longer married. I knew that if I was going to test it, I had to be sarcastic and witty about it. That was why I put some words in a way that people would not pay attention to (what I was doing). Apparently, they didn’t pay attention to the details. I tried to play with words in that post. Interestingly, the incident showed me that people love and appreciate my family; I also learnt that bad news travels faster (than good news).

“I thank God for a good and understanding wife. I didn’t take permission from her before playing that prank. When she saw it, she couldn’t reach me because I was still on the plane. People had been calling her repeatedly. Also, when I landed, my phone rang repeatedly. I called her to explain things to her immediately we saw each other. She said I should have carried her along because she didn’t know what to tell people when they called her. My wife is my number one critic; that is the beautiful thing about my marriage.

“I had over 80,000 hits on my Instagram page that day; my followers grew by over 3,000 within 24 hours. I had over 50 ladies hitting on me with direct messages; that’s to tell you how mad the world can be. I don’t want to talk about what the ladies were saying for now,” he said.

Customs React To Live Footage Of Killing By Personnel, Blames Victim [Watch Video]

The Nigeria Customs Service, NCS, has reacted to a trending video which captured one of its personnel shooting a man to death on Sunday.

DC Joseph Attah, NCS Public Relations Officer, in a statement, said while it is painful and totally unnecessary to lose life, the victim caused his death.

He said: “Today at Shagamu interchange along Ijebu Ode, an attempt to obstruct lawful performance of duty by passengers of a commercial bus (a white Toyota Hiace) suspected to be carrying bales of used clothing led to the death of a young man (Godwin) and serious injury of a Customs Officer, ASC1, Destiny Onebamho.

“Contrary to some narratives, the young man was not a passenger of the bus but a good citizen who always come to fetch water for Customs Patrol men anytime they return to the base.

“Preliminary finding indicate that it was during the skirmishes and struggle to disarm the Officer that the riffle discharged and hit the friend of the Customs (Godwin) who lost his life.

“The Service is already in touch with the bereaved family.

“Sadly, it should be noted that while attention shifted to the dead and the wounded, the passengers who filmed with inciting commentaries boarded their vehicle and left, leaving the wrong impression that it was one of them that was killed.

“While the wounded Officer is under intensive care at the hospital, the patrol team has been recalled to the office for further investigation.”
