The Speaker, Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa has advised the House Committee on Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation to take a careful look at Child Rights Law 2015 and Domestic Violence Law 2015 and reconcile them with the new Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency Bill 2020 in order to avoid repetition and contradictions. 

 

Obasa made this statement on Monday, November 30, 2020, during  plenary session after  the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency Bill 2020, "A bill for a law to provide for the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency, the Establishment of the Sex Offenders Register and for other Connected Purposes",  passed the Second Reading and was committed to the House Standing Committee on Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation.

 

" We need to put these laws side by side with this new bill so that we would not be repeating what we already have in place. 

 

" The committee has a lot to do by going through the existing laws in comparison to the new one which we have before us".

 

" We should also look at the issue of establishing new agency when we have many already. When we have too many agencies that is another addition to government expenditure".

 

The Speaker also implored the committee to sample the opinions of various  bodies particularly women NGOs in the order to know what they want.

 

He said a law should not be about punitive measures alone. That it should also be about bringing a lasting solutions to a particular problem. 

 

He was particularly concerned about how to take care of children who he said are victims of separation from domestic violence prone families.

 
 
 
 
 
Following a keenly contested royal search and rigorous process, Prince Sikirullai Alade Adebola Ogunlana, has emerged the Oba-elect of Magbon Alade, in Ibeju Local Government Area of Lagos State. 
 
Ogunlana was unanimously adopted as the Oba-Elect by Ipatun, Oketun and Oga, which are the three quarters that make up the royal stool in Magbon Alade. 
 
The Oba-elect was presented to the entire Magbon Alade indigenes on Sunday at a brief but colourful traditional ceremony by the kingmakers in Ibejuland. 
 
Performing the traditional rites of presenting the Oba-elect to the townspeople, the traditionalist saddled with the responsibility said all the qualified  princes from the three royal quarters were presented to Oketun and Magbon Communities for ratification, adding that Ogunlana emerged as the rightful choice to mount the throne. 
 
Basking the euphoria of the joyful moment, the Oba-elect, Prince Adebola Ogunlana, expressed appreciation to all the royal families and kingmakers of Magbon Alade, promising not to let the town down. 
 
Ogunlana further commended the kingmakers for particularly not ignoring the outcome of the traditional rights that eventually produced him. 
 
The Oba-elect extended the olive branch to other contestants, who he described as very eminently qualified to mount the throne, should any of them have emerged. 
 
He said: "Let me appeal to all the princes, who contested for this royaI patun, Oketun and Oga stool to forget about the contest and let us forge ahead as a family. Originally, we are one and we should continue to be. All of us should forge ahead and be magnanimous in victory. What we all stand for is the development of Magbon Alade." 
 
He further appealed to the Lagos State Government to come to the aid of  Magbon Alade community by immediately ensuring electricity reaches every part of the town. 
 
Ogunlana added that his priority as the Oba of Magbon Alade will be to work with and galvanise all sons and daughters of Magbon Alade to ensure rapid development of the community, clean water, education, health care for children and mothers especially the aged. 
 
Dignitaries at the unveiling ceremony include Honourable Kazeem Raheem representing Ibeju-Lekki II at the State House of Assembly, the Chief Imam of Magbon-Alade, Chief Igara Moruf, Chief Yakub, Pa Alade Kazeem, Alhaji M.O  Kazeem and Alhaji Kola Akinsanya.

I see Lagos come 2024 with a mega infrastructure Development put in place that will see Lagos residence total free from Traffic Congestion

 

These  are the words of a clergy, The Senior Pastor of Grace Nation International aka Liberation city, Dr Chris Okafor at the Glorious Prophetic Service of the Church on 29th November 2020 in Lagos

 

The Generational Prophet of God as he is fondly called said he saw a new system of Transportation that will provide transport means to Lagosians with Less Traffic

 

The clergy said the transportation mean will be on Air but not airplane buy will move on semi airspace

 

Speaking further the man of God said the process will actually commence by 2021-2024, he remarked that by year 2024, the project will be completed for use

 

Dr Chris Okafor however charge Lagosians to continue to support with the Government of the day through Prayers and cooperation for the success of the project, he said the Project will put Lagos ahead of many cities across the globe

 

The Glorious Prophetic Sunday service came to end with Testimonies, Deliverance miracle and Dedication of life to Christ,,

 

 

Following the butchery that occurred in Borno state yesterday, The leader of INRI Evangelical spiritual church, Primate Ayodele has spoken against the act that claimed the lives of over 43 farmers.

 

The popular prophet described that act as a sad occurrence and a confirmation that God is not happy with the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.

 

He made it known that the recent happenings in the country has shown beyond doubt that President Buhari can’t lead the country anymore, therefore, He should honourably resign for someone who has the capacity to lead the country.

 

He also reinstated his statement that President Muhammadu Buhari needs to sack his service chiefs before the security in Nigeria can improve, while describing the present ones as ‘weak and tired’

 

‘ The killings that took place in Borno yesterday is sad, disheartening and shame to our dear country.

 

The stubbornness of President Muhammadu Buhari and not listening to advice has affected his government.  He knows what to do to control it but it’s as if he has made up his mind to shed blood of Nigerians. God is not happy with this government because lots of blood have been sucked and there is no way the government won’t pay for it

 

This is sad, I’m sure the number is more than that, and that is why Buhari isn’t capable of leading this country again, He should resign honourably and let someone else who has the capacity to be there, he has failed Nigerians and there is no way God will be happy with him. How long will we continue to experience this.

 

The service chiefs are tired, they don’t know what to do, they are confused, there are just there making noise, they don’t have the stamina and idea.

 

My concern is Buhari has all it takes to do a positive thing about the security of the country but He has ignored the people, there is no peace, we have killings, armed robbery attack, it’s a shame to the government, He should have resigned honourably and have peace of mind.’

 

Meanwhile, Primate Ayodele in his annual book of Prophecy titled Warning to the nations had warned against the recent sad occurrence that happened in Ondo and Borno.

 

On page 37 under Borno section, Primate Ayodele noted that Jere Local government should be careful of strange and unexpected attacks, which eventually happened.

 

Also on Page 86 under Ondo state section, He categorically said that the state should pray against losing a king or dethronement of a king, as he warned, News had it last week that a first class monarch in Ondo was shot dead by unknown armed men.

...Says Nigerian Media Industry Has Lost A Colossus

 

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has described the death of ace journalist and former editor of the Sunday Times, Mr. Gbolabo Ogunsanwo as a colossal loss to the media industry and the country as a whole.

 

In a condolence message signed on his behalf by his Chief Press Secretary Mr. Gboyega Akosile, on Sunday, Sanwo-Olu said the death of the ace columnist, whose weekly articles and editorial contents helped to shape the country's social and political narratives is painful and heartbreaking.

 

Ogunsanwo, a respected and well celebrated columnist and former acting Editor of Daily Times, died on Friday. 

 

Sanwo-Olu urged family, friends and colleagues of the late Ogunsanwo to work towards immortalising the deceased, saying what he stood for was to see a better nation as he constantly advocated in his several opinion pieces. 

 

The Governor said the rich experience and knowledge of the late Ogunsanwo, especially his contributions to national issues through his editorial contents will be sorely missed. 

 

He said: "The death of Mr. Gbolabo Ogunsanwo is a great loss to the media industry and he will be greatly missed. He made lots of positive impact during his life time, contributing meaningfully to the growth and development of journalism in Nigeria. 

 

"He wrote his name in gold in the Sunday Times Newspaper as the first editor to hit one million copies in sales per edition. He was a role model to many journalists in Nigeria having nurtured many media practitioners who have become leading voices in the journalism profession and leaders in different sectors. 

 

"As the Editor of the Sunday Times and later acting Editor of the Daily Times, Ogunsanwo's landmark achievements in the media industry were unprecedented as the newspaper during his time sold almost a million copies in a day. Till date no other newspapers in Nigeria has broken that record. 

 

"I sympathise with his family and friends and I pray that God will give them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss."
