2  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Bayelsa polls: Jonathan battles to save face on: 5-12-2015 10:02 AM
There are indications that the outcome of today’s
governorship election in Bayelsa State may go a long way
in determining the future political relevance of former
President Goodluck Jonathan.
Jonathan, an indigene of Bayelsa State from Ogbia council
area was defeated at the last presidential election by the
candidate of the All Progressive Congress, APC,
Muhammadu Buhari.
Jonathan has
lived a relatively
quiet life since
leaving office,
between his
Otuoke country
home and Abuja
and appearing
twice at PDP
events, such as
the party
primary where
the incumbent
Seriake Dickson,
was affirmed as
the party
candidate for
today’s polls and
the mega rally
where Dickson
was presented
the party flag, he is expected to lead some other members
of the party from his Otuoke ward to cast their votes.
For Jonathan, combating the APC challenge may prove to
3  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Chidinma, Flavour go sensual on stage on: 5-12-2015 09:51 AM
When you think of Chidinma, the Kedike star, what comes
to mind is that little naïve, reserved girl still waiting to
break away from her mother’s tender grip.
But the petite songstress is
pushing beyond that
boundary and showing that
anything can happen when
it comes to her brand.
At the recently held concert
hosted by Phyno tagged
Phynofest, the duo of
Chidinma and Flavour took
their “Chemistry” to
another level. Before now
they have been pictured in
compromising positions and the idea of them dating has
been denied severally.
During the concert held at Onitsha, they performed their
duet Ololufe and shared a kiss after the performance.
This didn’t go well with some of Chidinma’s fans as they
took to her Instagram page to express their disapproval.
One of them writes: “If you two are dating, let us know
and stop forming church-girl.
Another adds: “Is this how you guys would be kissing
whenever you perform Ololufe?”

14  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Osun monarchs may boycott Ooni Ogunwusi’s coronation if… on: 4-12-2015 10:26 PM
The newly elected chairman of Osun State
Council of Obas, the Owa Obokun of Ijesaland, Oba
Adekunle Aromolaran, has said that traditional rulers in
the state may boycott Monday’s coronation and
presentation of staff of office ceremony of the new Ooni
of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwus, unless they receive
formal invitation letter from the central planning
committee of the event.
Briefing newsmen after  its meeting in Osogbo yesterday,
where he was adopted as the substantive chairman of the
council, Oba Aromolaran stated that members of the
council would only shift their position if they are accorded
their due recognition.
He said: “If we
are invited with
invitation cards
or letters, we
will go there
after consulting
with the
governor. As at
the time we
concluded the
meeting of
Osun Council of
Obas today
(Thursday), we have not received any invitation from Ile-
Ife about Monday’s coronation. We don’t go to where we
have not been invited.”
According to him, “Today, we held a meeting of Council of
Obas in Osun. During our discussion, we deliberated on
the chairmanship of the council. Ataoja of Osogbo, Oba
Jimoh Olanipekun moved the motion that since I have
been acting as the chairman, I should continue in that
capacity as the substantive chairman and other monarchs
15  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Fayose to Governors: Cut your travels, tours not minimum wages on: 4-12-2015 10:24 PM
Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, has dissociated
himself from calls by some state governors that the
salaries of public servants be reduced or that there should
be massive retrenchment in the public sector.
Instead of reducing salaries and sacking workers, Fayose
admonished the state governors to reduce the affluence
they enjoy in office and put an end to wastages.
According to a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti on Friday by
the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi,
the governor said this during the Agenda for the Treasury
Board meeting held as part of preparation of the state’s
2016 budget.
“Today most newspapers carried the story about call by
some state governors that the minimum wage of N18,000
be reduced or that there should be massive retrenchment
of workers in the public service. They are on their own
and I take exemption to that. The minimum wage is even
not enough.
“Reduction of wages or retrenchment of workers won’t
happen in Ekiti State. Instead of those anti-labour and
anti-people policies, the governors should cut down on
their travels and tours and cut down minimum wives and
children and their affluence. Let the governors cut their
coats according to their sizes.”
Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum and governor
of Zamfara state had on Thursday told newsmen inn
Abuja that the current low prices in oil prices was making
the payment of N18, 000 minimum wage impossible for
state governments.
He said it would either be reviewed downward or workers
would face sack.
