Singer Davido has replied an ‘Adeleke’ who tackled him for asking his uncle not to support a physically challenged boy who many thought was a girl
Few days ago, comedian Brain Jotter was driving when he ran into a physically-challenged ‘’female” bottle water seller named Eniola. He was inspired by the seller’s industrious spirit despite the physical limitation.
He recorded a video of ‘’her” where ‘she’ said ‘she’ is also a makeup artise and needed money to push ‘her’ business.. Brain Jotter was moved by the story and immediately gave the seller N400, 000 and shared the video online,
Davido saw the video and reacted after hearing Eniola say ‘she’ is from Osun state, his home state. He tagged his Uncle who is the governor of Osun state in a bid to get ‘her’ help.
The Uncle later responded saying his office will be contacting Eniola.
It was later discovered that the water seller is a boy and not a girl as many thought and that he had allegedly used this method to scam many others.
Brain Jotter took to his Instastories last night to express his shock. Read here
Reacting to the development, Davido via his X handle asked his Uncle to ‘abort mission’
‘’ Excellency dem job us !! Dem say nah man ABORT MISSION ‘’
An X user, Abiodun Adeleke, knocked him for asking his Uncle to no longer help Eniola. Abiodun argued that even though Eniola is a man, he is physically challenged and needs help. He stated that except Davido and his Uncle used the story for clout, they can still help Eniola despite the recent revelation.
Davido immediately responded asking Abiodun to help him, afterall he is also an ‘’Adeleke.”
Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun state and his aides reportedly survived an aircraft crash after the private jet they had boarded, caught fire just before take off.
According to a report by Leadership, by a stroke of luck, on Tuesday, September 5, 2023, a Bombadier Global Express 6000, owned by billionaire businessman, Chief Adedeji Adeleke, caught fire at take-off point at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) in Lagos.
Chief Adeleke is the father of singer, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido and is also the brother of Osun State governor, Ademola Adeleke.
The fire incident reportedly occured at the domestic wing of the Airport at about 9am on the said date when the jet was about to take off from Lagos to Abuja.
The report stated that the jet with Governor Adeleke and his aides on board, had taxied to the end of the runway shortly before departure when a loud explosion was heard from the engine of the jet, causing it to abort take-off immediately.
Before the planned takeoff, the jet had been parked at the Executive Jet hanger of the Airport, the report added.
Sam Iwuajoku, the chief executive officer (CEO), Executive Jets, owners of the hangar where the private jet was parked, disclosed that the Chief Adeleke’s private jet had Foreign Object Damage (FOD) that made the aircraft experience high temperature, which resulted in the explosion.
“At take-off, the engine had high temperature and it was caused by bird nest in one of the engines of the aircraft. It happened when an aircraft is parked and not properly covered so, birds will build their nest and anything they bring into the aircraft can spark high temperature.” Sam Iwuajoku told the publication
It happened to one of my aircraft in 2021, we had to remove the engine and the engine was in Germany for 14 months. So, it’s a common thing in Africa because we have birds around,” he stated.
The governor made the plea at the three-day executive retreat organised by the African office of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) ongoing at Kigali, the capital of Rwanda.
This is contained in a statement by the governor’s spokesman, Olawale Rasheed, on Friday, August 25, 2023.
Speaking at the event, Adeleke said, “I am glad to be here. Permit me to call on leaders in and out of here that we must allow democracy to work. We are products of the democratic process. So we should allow free and fair elections.
“Our people put us here. So we must serve their interest. If we fail to serve their interest, we must accept when we are voted out. Once we are elected, we must be on our toes and make a difference. That is how democracy can thrive.
“Democracy in whatever form must bring development. If democracy does not produce development, there will be problems with the system. I love what I see in Rwanda. There are serious lessons to learn,” the statement quoted the governor as saying.
“I try to practice what I preach. In Osun state, I govern with an eye on the rule of law and due process. I know developed nations got to where they are today because they allowed democracy to function, they embraced the rule of law.
“Let me also add that the citizens too must play their parts. The citizenry must be active and defend the electoral process. The people must rise to ensure free and fair elections. We will learn a lot here. We will exchange notes. We will be better leaders,” he added.
Other Nigerian governors that attended the event include those of Oyo, Abia, Anambra, Benue, Cross River (represented by the Deputy Governor), Delta, Ekiti, Enugu, Jigawa, Kaduna, Lagos, Niger, Nassarawa, Taraba, Sokoto (represented by the Deputy Governor) and Zamfara.
Governor Ademola Adeleke has revealed that he went back to school to earn a degree after being subjected to personality attacks by his opponents after losing the 2018 governorship election in Osun state.
Speaking at the combined 9th undergraduate and 5th postgraduate convocation ceremonies of the Adeleke University, Ede, Osun state, on Sunday, July 16, Governor Ademola Adeleke recalled how his elder brother, Dr. Deji Adeleke, insisted he must complete his education or forgo the 2022 governorship election which he eventually won.
He added that age should not be seen as a barrier to pursuing educational dreams. The Osun state Governor said;
“Dr Tajudeen Adeleke encouraged me to move ahead. Before I went on exile, he called me to a meeting where we discussed. He told that I should look at what I have been subjected to by those saying I was not educated. He advised that I should go to (United States of) America for studies.
“He said the only thing I can do for Osun people, if I am ready to be governor, I must get educated, I must complete my education; that without completing it, I should forget my governorship ambition.
“At my age then, I successfully re-enrolled and completed my degree programme. I am proud of that achievement and I thank my family and friends for their total support.
“I came back to re-contest in 2022 as a brand new graduate. The rest is now history. What is the lesson? Our age must never be a barrier to educational pursuit. What we need is commitment and passion to succeed.”
Anita Brown, the American lady claiming to be expecting a baby for singer Davido, also shared a screenshot of a Snapchat DM exchange she had with a certain Clark Adeleke believed to be the cousin of singer Davido.
In the screenshot shared, the IG handle ‘Clark’ pointed out that the pregnancy was a mistake but that her choice to keep it will be respected. The certain Clark also pointed out that when the baby is born, the needful will be done and that full responsibility will be taken for the child if he or she is an Adeleke.
Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun state has flagged off staff audits across the state public service.
The audit started with his biometric capture, that of the Deputy Governor and the Speaker of the House of Assembly.
The Governor’s media aide, Olawale Rasheed, said the data capturing was preceded by a close door meeting with the state labour leadership where processes and procedures were firmed up to ensure protection and fulfillment of the interest of all stakeholders.
Governor Ademola stated that the exercise is not a witch-hunt, adding that it is part of his plans to fill up existing vacancies within the education, health, and other sub-sectors in the state.
The statement read;
“I want to assure workers and other stakeholders that the staff audit is not a witch-hunt. Our administration has workers’ welfare as number one on our governance agenda. So we will not take any action that will negatively affect formal and informal workers.
“The audit is to achieve several goals namely cleaning up the payroll system, validating the actual number of state workforce, and establishing areas of vacancies across various sectors of the public service. We need to authenticate the data of our workforce.
“We also need to confirm existing vacancies within the public service. I have earlier issued a directive for the collation of vacancies for teachers and health workers. The compilation is almost completed. The outcome will then provide what we call data-driven management of our public service.
“We are ascertaining the number of teachers we need in our schools. Our team is checking out the number of science, English, mathematics, social science and other teachers as well as which schools need what type of teachers.”
