Club Activities Have Boosted Economy, Resuscitate Social Life Within Bodija - Group Tells Makinde
 
 
Ibadan Group of Entertainers, a body that comprises of various Lounge and club hotspots owners in Bodija has reacted to a recent press release by residents of Bodija Estate on club activities around the community.
 
In a statement released by the group, it was stated that the lounge and club activities around Bodija estate are not situated to inconvenience the resident in anyway but a means to contribute their own quota to the development of the state.
 
According to the group, “Ibadan is a city with different class, hence, while there is provision for some to enjoy themselves, it is also an avenue to provide job opportunities which will directly boost the economy of the community and Ibadan at large”
 
“We have not brought the idea of citing lounge and clubs to the environment to disturb the sleep of the residents, rather, our motives are to support the government in boosting the economy of the community and Ibadan through job creation.
 
“The lounge and club activities have created thousands of jobs opportunities for people within and outside this community.
 
“Ibadan being a city of the elite, we also believed that this will to some extent increase the social life of the people and as well provide relaxation space for people who have worked themselves and need too cool off the stress for the day.
 
“Aside from that, the rate at which landed properties are valued has increased since the advent of our operation which is an advantage to landowners and estate valuers in the community.
 
“It is surprising that this good intention of ours are being used against us by people who should see this opportunities from a positive point of view that we have mentioned above but decided to go otherwise.
 
“We hereby use this medium to urge Oyo State Governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde to support the developmental view of ours to ensure that we reduce poverty in the land”

Barrister (Dr.) Taiwo Olayinka Afolabi, born in Ondo to the family of Chief and Chief (Mrs.) Samson Afolabi, is a native of Idokunusi, Ijebu in the Ijebu East Local Government Area of Ogun State.

He started his educational pursuit at Ansar Ud Deen Primary School
in Ondo and proceeded to Baptist Grammar School, Ibadan where he obtained his West African School Certificate (WASC).

His quest to attain high level of academic excellence and leadership in advocacy, led him to the University of Lagos, where he obtained the degree in Law. He became a member of the noble profession when he was called to the Nigerian Bar by the Body of Benchers
on Wednesday, 4th November, 2009.

He successfully completed the Masters degree in INTERNATIONAL LAW AND DIPLOMACY during the 2013/2014 Session leading to the award of the MILD by the University of Lagos Senate.

He began his working career with a shipping outfit, THE NIGERIAN EXPRESS AGENCIES LIMITED (NEAL). He became an outstanding young manager in Shipping Operation and Ports Management before travelling abroad to study Shipping Management. Barr.

KCOBA’s 2001 Class Set Outlines Give Back Projects As It Commemorates Its 20th Anniversary

  

KCOBA’s 2001 Class Set Outlines Give Back Projects As It Commemorates Its 20th Anniversary
The Kings College Old Boys Association (KCOBA) has a history almost as long and illustrious as the school it is named for. Having produced a multitude of students that have gone on to make waves in a plethora of industries, its alumni consistently put in concerted efforts to ensure the continued development of the school and by extension, its students.

The 12th of October 2021 marked a world press conference and ground breaking ceremony as old boys of the 1995-2001 class set outlines give back projects as part of the commemoration of the 20th anniversary of their graduation.

 

At the press conference held at the KCOBA Secretariat on Lagos Island, members of the 1995 – 2001 class set met once again to ruminate on the current state of their Alma mater and outline a direction for the future development of the school.

The set announced its plans for a brand new ‘Innovation Hub’ and a sports pavilion that would bring the school well into this new age of technology.

Mr. Babajide Jacobs, chairman of the planning committee was the first spokesperson during the event and took the time to properly elucidate on the current state of education in the country and the need for a renewal in strategy.

 

Setting the stage for the announcements to come, the chairman spoke about
the need for technological education in Kings College, drawing a parallel to how Silicon Valley and other tech-centric projects are fast becoming the wave that global development is riding on.

TRENDING: The Unprecedented Story of Kika Good Hair
He continued with that parallel explaining that should the education sector in Nigeria not strive to keep up with the global demand for tech, it could risk getting left behind.

“As the dot.com boom in the early 2000s brought forth a new wave of web-based companies and unparalleled growth so have the new ‘tech-preneurs’ made way for growth in multiple industries” – Mr. Babijide Jacobs

On taking the stand, Mr. Charles Dungor who represented the Class set president Mr. Akindele Ogundepo at the press conference, followed the tone already laid, announcing the class’ plans to introduce an all-new ‘innovation hub’ to the students.

This hub will allow the students to emulate the strides made by African tech companies such as Paystack and Flutterwave which have gone on to great success despite the stifling environment of the country.

The innovation hub will serve as a platform where students can learn and involve themselves in pursuits that will stoke within them the thirst to
learn not out of necessity but for personal progress. Mr. Dungor, further expounded on the offerings of the innovation hub, highlighting each aspect and what it would do for the student’s development.

The students would be taught a myriad of skills ranging from hard skills such as coding, SQL, and graphic design to soft skills like emotional intelligence, creative thinking, and complex problem-solving.

Finally, Mr. Moses Nasamu, the chairman of the Board Of Trustees KCOBA 1995 – 2001 Class Set, brought up the rear. In his address, Mr. Nasamu laid out further plans for the development of a sports pavilion alongside the innovation hub.

TRENDING: Chairmanship Aspirant Calls For Consensus In The APC State Congress
The chairman, an avid sports fan himself, stated that this was in keeping with the school’s long history of excellence in multiple sporting events. Like the hub, the pavilion will provide an avenue for students to express themselves outside of conventional classroom interactions.

It seems the school is in good hands as evidenced by the continued ministrations of its alumni to its development.

A closing quote from Mr. Nasamu further confirmed this as he said “ Spero Lucem! As the school continues to strive for light, this is the least its Alumni can do to support it and its current crop of students.

The King’s College name must always be synonymous with success and a thirst for
knowledge and this development is simply a step in the continuation of that legacy”.

Chairmanship Aspirant Calls For Consensus In The APC State Congress

The All Progressives Congress (APC) is set to conduct its State Congress across theNation on Saturday 16th October, 2021. Lagos State the Center of Excellence is not left out in this all important exercise.

As expected, one of the very notable, erudite and indefatigable grassroots politicians Hon. Mrs. Beatrice Omotayo Tugbobo is strategically poised to take out the Tunde Balogun led Exco to a higher level if elected as the state chairman of the Party.

The frontline politician Mrs. Tugbobo, a grassroots politician and a community leader with vast experience, has assured Party faithfuls that she will turn around the fortune of the party if elected as
Chairman.

It is expected that being a female candidate she will use her expertise to
revive the much needed spirit of patriotism and bring about stability.

Hon. Mrs. Beatrice Omotayo Tugbobo parades a rich and intimidating professional and political profile, she was once the Chairman of Mushin Local Government.

“I am bringing my wealth of expertise, experience, contacts and motherly touch to further advance the political fortunes and causes of the Lagos State Chapter of our great party the APC,
without leaving any member behind”.

Widely regarded as a bridge builder, Beatrice Omotayo Tugbobo who is arguably the candidate to beat has further assured Party faithfuls to change the “status quo” by carrying everyone along in the process of the party’s business and processes.

Expectedly, the race for the APC chairmanship is gathering momentum as Mrs. Tugbobo is strongly backed to win the coveted position because Lagosians are anxious to elect people with vision and purpose who will steer the Party to greater heights and ensure that the younger generation will have something to look up to Hon. Tugbobo represents that new generation of leaders who are focused, detribalised and creative.

She is an advent believer in the consensus arrangement being preached by the Chairman of the Caretaker Committee and the present Governor of Yobe State H.E. Mai Mala Buni. Hon. Mrs. Tugbobo is coming on the back of the state wide support and acclamation of the AAMCO group.
