Stop endorsing drug abuse, La Face tells Nigerian musicians

Published

on

Nigerian musicians have been advised to stop glamourising and endorsing illicit drug abuse in whatever shape or form as role models that should show the way for others to follow.

Speaking recently in an interview, a popular Nigerian entertainment promoter Tunde oshinubosi, (La Face) stated that the nation was sitting on a keg of gun powder “if this crazy trend continues unabated.”

He said: “If we think the yahoo trend is bad, guess what, the looming drug epidemic, which will ruin the lives of our future leaders, will be catastrophic.

“With drug abuse comes accelerated cases of social vices such as armed robbery, kidnapping, prostitution, fraud, cultism, banditary etc.

“The sweet codeine documentary is just a tip of the iceberg, today’s drug abuse wave cuts across gender, ethnic and religious divide. It is scary, as a parent, I fear for the future of the coming generation.

“The lukewarm attitude of the state and federal governments is mind blowing, I doubt if this madness will be tolerated even by our Ghanaian neighbours.”

La Face stated further that as major stakeholders in the music industry, Nigerian musicians must condemn the evil trend, adding that “let me burst your brain using a common phrase by youths today; an addict will do anything for a score.”

The promoter stressed that music should be about creativity, and not a platform to “glamourise illicit drug abuse, as creative minds, we should focus on lasting legacy.”

He opined that as a nation, Nigeria lost it from the beginning by creating a situation where everything goes, and that the nation must put a stop “to this madness called music.”

“Today, codeine, tramadol rophenol, diazepan etc are abused with reckless abandon. Addicts will automatically graduate into cocaine, heroine, meth etc.

“We already have a problem of massive unemployment with the looming drug epidemic.
“We welcome an unemployable youth populace coupled with poverty, Boko Haram banditary, kidnapping to name a few.

“As industry insiders, it is an open secret that over 90‰ of Nigerian secular artists do drugs. Should they then pass it on, destroying the future generation, please enough is enough,” La Face stated.

Labour minister, Keyamo advises daughter on secrets of marital bliss

Published

on

The honourable Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo SAN has advised one of his blood relations who got married over the weekend on what it takes to survive marital squabbles.

The Minister disclosed this at the marriage ceremony of his cousin, Maryam Keyamo, who grew up under his tutelage. The lucky bride, Maryam was given in marriage to Desmond Chima, a young and successful media entrepreneur and manager of popular music superstar, Harrysong.

The marriage between the duo has been a fanfare of a sort kicking off in Warri, Delta State with a traditional ceremony before the white wedding was held at the Decorum events centre, Oregun, Ikeja Lagos last Saturday, November 23rd, 2019.

The Minister who attended the wedding in capacity of the Chairman and bride’s ‘father’ bluntly advised the young lady on the secrets of marital bliss, “you have to make sure you submit all to your husband, total submission and respect are some of the basic rules to a lasting marriage”, the Minister warned.

Buttressing his point, the Senior Advocate of Nigeria reminded the newly-wed about their elderly siblings whose marriages have been waxing stronger and why it has been so, “I could remember at a time, long ago before the advent of GSM, my sister left her husband’s house in Port-Harcourt and visited us in Warri, on the second day, my father asked for the letter that authorized her for the visit and when she couldn’t produce it, he compelled her to go back immediately and ever since, she never repeated such strange visit, today she’s been married, I think for 18 years and same with all of them”.

So, Maryam, don’t come and tell me your problems, stay in your husband’s house and I pray God in His infinite mercies continue to bless the union.

On a lighter mood, the Minister took a jibe at the groom, Desmond Chima whom he accused of “stealing” his daughter while on a business mission to his Law Chambers, “I was surprised to see Desmond who was a client still coming around even after the case was over, so I asked them one day, what’s Desmond still looking for here, only to find out he has actually ‘stole’ my daughter”.

On a final note, the Minister advised the groom never to raise his hands on his wife, the worst thing any man can do is to beat his wife, please don’t do it, he told the groom.

Ned Nwoko urges ASELGON to be committed to nation building

Published

on

A former member of the Federal House of Representatives and an international lawyer of repute, Prince Ned Nwoko has urged members of the Association of Ex-Local Government Chairmen of Nigeria (ASELGON) to be committed to nation building.
Nwoko spoke during his investiture as the Grand Patron of the Association in his mansion in Idumuje Ugboko, Delta State on Saturday 23rd November, 2019.
The politician stated that the responsibility was big for him as the first grand patron of the association, adding that he would do his best to support their ideals.
“I have no doubt that with little support and your zeal, you will play a lot of roles in nation building.
“I am a grassroots person also, even if you have 30% support across all the local governments, you can make a lot of difference,” he said.
The former lawmaker told the members of the association that their job required consistency and commitment.
He lamented that Nigeria is a country of survival of the fittest unlike Britain, which he said was different because, according to him, they understand what politics is all about service.
“I will support your cause and join hands with you so that we can all move Nigeria forward.
“My joy is to see that Nigeria catches up with the rest of the world and we can achieve a lot of things together with unity and commitment to our cause as a group and individually,” he said, while commending the members of ASELGON for their coming up with such an association.
Nwoko however, said that what was needed in Nigeria was a level of exposure and the zeal to do what is right.
According to him, if we have 60% of the people in offices understanding why they were elected, Nigeria would be better.
He regretted that the country had not laid the foundation for good governance, while saying that he was non-partisan within him.
While saying that he could be more comfortable living abroad, he said that he preferred to stay in Nigeria and urged the people to live above religious sentiments.
Earlier in his address, the National President of ASELGON, Hon. Albert Asipa said that the Forum was inaugurated in 2013 as an umbrella body for ex-local government chairmen to provide a platform for them as experienced  individuals who still have a lot to contribute immensely to the overall development of the third tier of government in Nigeria.
Asipa stated that the forum was of the opinion that the choice of Prince Ned Nwoko as a Grand Patron of the association would further enhance their resolve to reposition  local government administration in Nigeria for good; “taking into cognizance, your unrelenting effort in the years past to get a share of the  Paris refund to the coffers of local government councils across the nation.
“This particular feat and other factors culminated in today’s Award of Excellent Service to Humanity and investiture as ASELGON Grandpatron.”
Also speaking, the National Organising Secretary of ASELGON, Hon. Abayomi Tella revealed that the name of Prince Ned Nwoko came up, when they had their NEC meeting in Abuja.
“We discussed who could be our Grand Patron and we went into the internet and saw the name of Prince Ned Nwoko. We discovered that he sponsored about 20 bills as a member of the Federal House of Representatives within four years.
“You will not only serve the people of  Delta State, you will serve the whole Nigeria, where all of us would benefit.
“We would want the Grand Patron to take us as partners in the development of Nigeria, and Africa as a whole and support us to deal with all our challenges,” he said.
The investiture was attended by former local government chairmen across the 36 states of the federation representing the 774 local governments of Nigeria.
