Edo Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has revoked the statutory right of occupancy granted to a former Delta Governor Chief James Ibori in respect to a property on plot 103A Aiguobasimwin Crescent, old GRA, Oredo local government.
Governor Obaseki said he revoked the property in exercise of the power conferred on him by sections (28) 1 and 38 of the Land Use Degree of 1978 and by virtue of all other laws enabling him on that behalf.
Obaseki, who signed the revocation order, said the property contained an area of approximately 1985.950 square metres.
No further reason was given for the revocation.
When contacted for comment, Ibori said, via SMS: “I am aware. He told me three months ago.”
Rita Dominic, a Nollywood actress, has criticized those who assume that one’s failure to show off their wealth on social media pages means they’re not living happily.
The 44-year-old film star disclosed this in a post on her Instagram story while expressing her displeasure about the culture of seeing expensive lifestyles as a definition of living optimally.
“So social media has become the yardstick to measure wealth? People think because you don’t post designer labels, holidays, and how much you have on your page means you’re not balling,” she wrote.
“Poverty mentality much? Happiness or balling, in your words, means different things to different people. This life isn’t that serious, be happy you are alive and healthy first and foremost!”
Dominic has, over the course of her acting career, starred in over 100 Nollywood productions, winning the City People Awards as the ‘Most Outstanding Actress’ as far back as 2004.
The movie star had started performing as a child, appearing in school plays and children’s television shows in Imo state.
Dominic has, however, remained private about her relationship life, although she admitted in 2018 that she almost got married at some point in her life.
“I will marry the man of my dreams and not the man society dreams for me. Society feels that there is something wrong with you if you’re a certain age and you’re not married,” she said.
“What if it’s the society that something is wrong with for thinking that way, for forcing someone to do what they don’t want to do or forcing them to do what they want but in their (society’s) own time?”
The Lagos State Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mrs. Uzamat Akinbile-Yusuf has said that the state government was prepared to collaborate with the Nigeria Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC) to strengthen tourism in the state and in Nigeria.
Speaking during a visit to the Director-General of the Nigeria Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC), Mr. Folorunsho Coker aka Folly Coker in Abuja on Wednesday, Akinbile-Yusuf said that her ministry would take advantage of the unique opportunity provided by NTDC to reach out to major tourism stakeholders in Africa.
“This collaboration will provide us with the opportunity to further market Lagos as a must-visit destination in Africa and the world.
“Lagos State is prepared to collaborate with NTDC in areas that will give recognition to creative arts and tourism development.
“Lagos is a preferred destination for business, leisure and entertainment,’’ she said.
Reacting, Mr Folorunsho Coker called on state governments to collaborate with Federal Government in the joint efforts to boost tourism in their localities.
He said that the visit was necessitated by the need for states to collaborate with the Federal Government to effectively tap into tourism potential in their localities.
The Director General urged other states in the federation to emulate Lagos in its rapprochement towards the Federal Government for mutual benefits of both levels of government.
“When the Federal Government and the Lagos State Government come together on a project, success is guaranteed. It is like saying when both parties clap, the whole of Africa will hear.
“Tourism has huge revenue generating potential and it is good for government at all levels to come together and tap optimum benefits of these potential,’’ Coker said.
He urged other states in the federation to emulate Lagos State by mapping out collaborative strategies with the federal government to develop tourism and other sectors of the economy.
Akinbile-Yusuf was accompanied on the visit by Mr Babatunde Olaide-Mesewaku, Permanent Secretary, Lagos Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, and other top officials of the ministry.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibadan Zonal Office on Tuesday, February 18, 2020, arraigned an ex-banker, Akinwole Oluwaseun Dosunmu, alongside his wife, Motunrayo Olanike Dosunmu before Justice Ladiran Akintola of the Oyo State High Court, Ibadan for alleged financial fraud to the tune of N2,740,300.92 (Two Million, Seven Hundred and Forty Thousand, Three Hundred Naira, Ninety-Two kobo).
The couple was accused of stealing the sum from the Sterling Bank Plc. Akinwole was an employee of the bank, while his wife was a customer and a beneficiary in the bank’s Third Party Acquirer Scheme (TPAS).
The bank had initiated the scheme as a marketing strategy through which relatives and friends of their marketing agents were awarded commission for bringing new customers to open and operate new accounts with the bank. Akinwole, also a marketer with the bank, was appointed to coordinate the scheme.
Apart from the commission on account opening, the referral also enjoys certain percentage on the savings made through the accounts every month.
It was, however, alleged that while reviewing activities under the scheme in 2016, the bank discovered that most of the accounts appropriated to Motunrayo as a third-party acquirer were fraudulently tagged to her by her husband.
Officials of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) have intercepted 1, 393 bags of rice concealed in gas cylinders within Ogun State.
Parading the smugglers before newsmen on Wednesday February 19, the Acting Controller of the Federal Operations Unit (FOU), Zone A in Ikeja, Usman Yahaya said 625 cartons of frozen chicken, 187 jars and 66 drums of vegetable oil were also seized when the suspects were arrested between 5th and 17th February, 2020.
The items conveyed in 12 different vehicles, had a cumulative duty paid value (DPV) of N40.14 million.
Yahaya said; “Barely two weeks after the Comptroller-General of Customs’ working visit to Lagos where he showcased various seizures made by FOU A worth over N10 billion, we have again intercepted 1,393 bags of smuggled foreign parboiled rice, 187 jerrycans/66 drums of foreign vegetable oil and 625 cartons of poultry products from unapproved routes within Ogun State between 5th -17th February 2020 based on surveillance and routine patrol.
“This desperate act by these dare-devil smugglers concealing edible items in a gas cylinder further justifies the hard chase by operatives of Customs. DPV of each type of seized items include rice, N27.86 million; vegetable oil, N6.28 million, and frozen poultry N6 million.”
He also urged members of the public to support the service’s fight against smuggling activities by providing intelligence that could assist the unit achieve more monumental seizures.
The rematch that has percolated for 15 months will finally take place this weekend when WBC champion Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury do it all again under the bright lights in Las Vegas.
SuperSport 1 and 5 will cross to the MGM Grand at 4:00 am on Sunday with the headliner due to start at about 6.45 am.
It’s a fight that fans have clamoured for ever since the judges controversially called the first fight a draw, notwithstanding Fury having outboxed Wilder for large chunks of the fight.
Wilder, of course, twice knocked Fury down to again demonstrate why is he the biggest single-shot puncher in the sport.
Much has happened since they last fought. Fury marked time with two low-key fights memorable only for the nasty cut he sustained against Otto Wallin. He was troubled in neither outing.
More recently, he turfed out his trainer, opting for American Sugar Hill, a scion of the Kronk boxing dynasty and a disciple of attack-minded, aggressive fighting. It signifies an important shift for Fury, who concedes that he was too defensive in the first fight.
Wilder, meanwhile, kept busy doing what he does best: knocking out other big men. Dominic Brezeale was savagely stopped in a single round and then in November dangerous Luis Ortiz got sloppy after outboxing Fury and was banged out in the seventh.
A win for Fury would be the culmination of a wild comeback journey after he sunk into depression in the two years following his win over then-undisputed champion Wladimir Klitschko in 2015. As the biggest, loudest character in the division, victory would propel him into the public consciousness and give him even greater clout in the sport.
Victory for Wilder, meanwhile, will frustrate those who struggle to enjoy his often-sloppy style. He might be average as a pure boxer, but his power game is unrivalled. With 41 stoppages in his 42 wins, there is no finisher like him.
“I’ve said it so often: These guys I’m fighting, they have to be perfect for 12 rounds, but I only have to be perfect for two seconds,” said the champion, who will be looking to pull the trigger.
It’s an accurate summation of the weekend’s showdown, although don’t tell that to Fury.
“I’m not bothered about getting hit and hurt,” said Fury. “I’m coming out like a raging bull.”

Keystone Bank Limited, Nigeria’s most innovative banking services provider, has restated its commitment to environmental sustainability as it recently embarked on tree planting campaign.
According to the lender, the event which saw staff of the bank plant trees at the Nigeria Conservation Foundation in Lagos, is in line with its bid to further align with the Sustainable Development Goal 15, which stresses the call by the United Nations to protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss and ultimately for environmental sustainability.
Commenting on the initiative, Keystone Bank executive director, Adeyemi Odusanya said: “As a bank, our goal is to lead the movement promoting environmental sustainability in Nigeria and we are clearly going to sustain that.
“One of the ways to sustain this initiative is by planting trees to preserve the environment. Tree planting remains a strong tool to tackle the effect of climate change. Climate change is the most significant material risk to the future because it poses most devastating threat to human survival.
“Keystone Bank fully aligns itself with the UN ideology.
“We cannot live a healthy life, conduct business and create wealth amidst a sick environment. Hence, this gesture is our commitment towards a sustainable future that will benefit all,” Odusanya noted.
Keystone Bank is a technology and service-driven commercial bank offering convenient and reliable solutions to its customers.
