Owelle Onyeka Mbaso

 

As a proud son of Egbema Ozubulu in Ekwusigo LGA of Anambra State, I take great joy and satisfaction in following the footsteps of my elders who have distinguished themselves in various walks of life. For some, they may not be so lucky to have someone close to them to be a mentor or motivate them.

But for many of us from Egbema-Ozubulu, Owelle Onyeka Mbaso has been scientifically and politically proven to be an asset whose value keeps increasing at an astronomical rate everyday.

If you are from Anambra State and you have not been touched by Owelle Onyeka Mbaso, the erudite hardworking SSA Political to Chief Willie M. Obiano (Governor of Anambra State), then you are probably charging a phone without battery.

A graduate of Information Systems and Management from Middlesex University in London, Owelle Onyeka Mbaso followed in the political footsteps of his Great father, Hon. Barr. (Sir) Linus A. Mbaso (Ochubaru Enyi Zogbuo Agu) of blessed memory and transformed the APGA UK Chapter.

He touched that chapter of the party and great things began to happen.

As Martin Beck Nworah, I take great joy in telling my friends about this great, gentle and kind politician. I have been touched repeatedly by his good gestures and hard work. One of my close friends would always refer to him as “Ogalanya Obi ya di Ocha”; the wealthy man with a good heart.

After touching and repositioning the APGA UK chapter, he was found worthy to bring his midas touch to the government of His Excellency, Chief Willie Obiano and he hit the ground running with Willie is Working.

In less than two years, the strong Iroko from Ozubulu touched the political foundations of Anambra State and solidified the position of this present administration on so many fronts.

A strategist extra-ordinaire, Owelle Onyeka Mbaso has proven to be an asset Ndi Anambra would always be proud of both now and in the future.

And I make bold to say; let the youths running after their girlfriends hear me, let the men drinking in the bars pay attention, the technocrats and politicians, the high and mighty; let it be known from now till the end of time, that a worthy son of Ozubulu touched this state and he will continue to offer up himself to make sure Anambra is indeed, the light of the nation.

Do you know what it means to be touched by Owelle Onyeka Mbaso?

For the first time in the history of this state, millions of Ndi Anambra both at home and abroad are abreast of political developments of Governor Willie Obiano and the philanthropic strides of his darling wife, Chief(Mrs) Ebelechukwu Obiano through the steady flow of emails from Owelle Onyeka Mbaso.

Whether you are in Jamaica puffing your pipe or in UK looking for something fantastic, updates about our dear governor is just a click away. Are we surprised? Not at all. When you are touched by a billion hand in one, be rest assured that you have signed up for the best. I would’ve gone on to write more and elucidate succinctly on the personality of this great son of Egbema, but I’ll keep my flames burning till the appointed time.

Whenever I will have the special privilege of speaking with Owelle Onyeka Mbaso, I will pray to be touched as well.

His hand is a magic wand that makes all things right in this political dispensation and of a truth, so many political heavyweights are jealous of His Excellency, Chief Willie M. Obiano for having such an arsenal of mass development in just one person. With Owelle Onyeka Mbaso, the future is secured.

Busola Dakolo Returns With Update On Rape Case

Published

on

Busola Dakolo

After months of being quiet, Busola Dakolo has returned with an update about her rape case against Biodun Fatoyinbo.

Recall that the wife of Timi Dakolo had in June 2019, accused  Fatoyinbo of raping her when she was a teenager and was worshipping in his church in Kwara state.

The case to bring Fatoyinbo to justice was thrown out of the window by the court. The photographer has now returned with an update on the case.

In the update posted on her Instagram page, Busola shared a copy of the letter she received from the police stating they have completed investigations into the case and have forwarded the case file to the Director of Public Prosecution of the Federation (DPPP) for legal advice and further necessary action.

She alleged the Ministry of Justice has since received the case file for Fatoyinbo’s prosecution but has remained silent.  She said her team has sent a letter to the Ministry of Justice over a month ago but no response yet.

 

Read the letter from the police sent to her and her post below:

Busola Dakolo gives update on her rape case against clergyman Biodun Fatoyinbo

”It is now officially one year after since I came out and told the most important story of my life up until this point. That when I was a teenager, Biodun Fatoyinbo violently raped me. It wasn’t just me. In the media, on social platforms and in private, women have been sharing stories of how this man either destroyed their lives or tried to.

A lot has happened in that time: and my heart is glad that consciousness continues to be raised about the great evil that sexual abuse is, and how widespread it is, and how much women are at risk, and why we need to ensure justice for those who find the strength to speak out.

Awareness is victory. But we are pushing to another even great victory: Justice.

 

When the courts last year decided to rule in favour of the man who assaulted me, people were crestfallen. I understood.
What they didn’t know however is that before we even began, we had been prepared for a long haul battle that may take years because the Nigerian legal system isn’t wired to help sexual abuse victims get justice.
Today, I have a major update. The police has concluded its investigation. And handed over its report to the Ministry of Justice in Abuja for onward prosecution of Biodun Fatoyinbo. He clearly has a case to answer.
But there has been silence from the ministry. Silence. A loud silence!

“We have written a letter but for over a month we have no response.
“Instead, my lawyers and my family have heard about all manner of manipulation and foul play being attempted to stop the ministry from beginning prosecution immediately.
Or even to get the police report manipulated.

 

“My name is Busola Dakolo, a survivor of one of the most horrific acts -rape. My voice will not be shut down. My case will not be silenced. I am thankful to those in and out of the police, the ministry and the corridors of power who have called in solidarity and to reassure me that they are monitoring the ministry of justice and that this pressure to bury the case will not succeed.

 

“I am updating the Nigerian public because you all made my story matter. You joined me to say enough is enough. With you, this has been an easier process.” she wrote

Direct Primaries In Edo: Call Oshiomhole To Order, Jumu’ah Tells Buhari, Mustapha, Tinubu Amid COVID-19 Crisis

Published

on

A Social Commentator and Political Analyst, Jumu’ah Abiodun has called on President Muhammadu Buhari, Secretary to the Federal Government of Nigeria (SGF) and Chairman, Coronavirus pandemic Task Force, Boss Mustapha and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to call the APC National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole to order ahead of the party primaries scheduled for Monday, 20th June, 2020.
Jumu’ah in a statement published on his twitter handle @jumuahabiodun cautioned the APC National Chairman to desist from his present strategies of deliberately instigating direct primaries in Edo State amid widespread prevalence of novel COVID-19 in Nigeria.
“As a concerned citizen of this country, I will like to call the attention of Mr President, COVID-19 Task Force Chairman and National Leader of the ruling party, APC, to Oshiomhole’s strategies of deliberate instigating direct primaries in his State to accomplish his narrow-minded plan.”
“While it is not my affair to know how you run your party yet my advice for you is, you need to terminate the idea of direct primaries in Edo State with immediate effect.”
“At this point in time whereby the nation recorded 1, 005 cases of COVID-19 within last 72 hours, then Oshiomole is a clown with his direct primaries yearning. If your party want direct primaries your National Working Committee, NWC, should approach other party Chairmen for postponement of the election.”
“The widespread of COVID-19 has already created tension and panic in Nigeria with the country’s confirmed cases surpassed 11, 000 with 315 deaths,” Jumu’ah stated.
He added that: “To curb the spread of COVID-19 should be the priority of any responsible leader, not the direct primaries which people will troop out massively to vote”

Continuing, he said, “I’m using this opportunity to call on the World Health Organization (WHO), United Nation (UN), European Union (EU), the United Kingdom (UK), United States of America (US) and other international community to advice Buhari APC government not to go into any direct primaries for now that Nigeria is the second epicentre of the deadly virus in Africa.”

Shocker: Toolz Demuren Reveals Secret Of Losing Her Baby***The Untold Story

Published

on

Popular On Air Personality (AOP), Tolulope Oniru-Demuren popular as Toolz has revealed one of her best kept secrets.

She shared details about losing her child, something she had kept private.

The recently appointed Programs Director for Beat FM shared the tragic experience, revealing the disbelief and agony she endured as well as her journey to recovery.

Toolz goes into details about losing her child and her journey to recovery on the First episode of Life Lessons with Betty Irabor sponsored by Nescafe (video)

According to the mother of one, she got pregnant a few months after her wedding and typically began looking forward to having a baby.

However, when she got pregnant and as it approached six months, she noticed the baby never changed its position.

According to her, the Nigerian hospital she used didn’t pick up the problem on time.

Travelling to the United Kingdom,  a scan showed that her baby was too small and may not survive.

“I never once thought that the health of my child would be an issue,” Toolz said.

Despite scans after scans and efforts made,  she was told she’ll have to push the baby out because it was no longer moving.

Toolz revealed that at the final scan, she  had some sort of “spiritual awakening”.

“I heard a voice saying ‘this isn’t going to work out but you’re going to be okay’, ” she said.

Speaking further, she said: “That was horrible, the day that I did the scan and there was just like nothing. When we did the last scan, there was nothing, like, no movement, nothing.”

“Oh my gosh, it was horrible, it was absolutely horrible,” she added.

She said she was told that she’ll be given some medications and will come back after three days to push the baby out. The medications were given to her on Thursday and she was told to come back on Sunday. However, she went into labour on Saturday.

Toolz recalled preparing breakfast on that fateful Saturday when she felt pain and went to the bathroom.

“From there, the pain went from two to twelve. And I remember screaming… I was in so much pain and that’s when I realized that gosh, I’m in labour, ” she said.

“I was in labour for about six or seven hours.

“It was very very traumatic. I try not to think about it too much.

“I think one of the worst moments after that… of course this was in the UK, they had to do like an autopsy, I had to arrange a funeral. It was horrible.

“That whole time, I was just like, ‘Yeah, God, I’m done’. I’m like ‘come and take me, I’m gone’.”

The OAP has since recovered and is now blessed with a handsome son.
