Yesterday was a melancholic moment in Ekiti state. 7 students were reported to die from a terrible accident. There were many reports concerning it but CloudGossips went further to find out the true story behind the accident.

The students happened to have won about 25 million naira and thereby went to enjoy themselves in town. No one knows where they won the money from.

An eye witness said the students who were in a Lexus salon car were crushed down around 7pm yesterday.

Another eye witness who went to visit his brother in EKSU said the driver was driving at a very high speed and the location was a curve. He said the driver just overtook them when the incident happened.

As at present, six of the students have by being confirmed dead and one is in the state hospital.

The identity of the students have not been confirmed yet.

The Governor, Ayodele Fayose, paid a visit to the victim in the hospital and shed tears while in the hospital.

Some students said the accident wouldn’t have happened if the students have started their exam. Others claimed the Protest by NASU was to fight for their rights.

#Breaking: NASU protests in EKSU, locks up school gates today, Exam postponed (Pics)

We earlier reported that NASU protests in EKSU, locks up school gates today.
 
CloudGossips spoke with one of the NASU members who wants to remain anonymous. He said that the Union didn’t just embark on protest. he said they have been having some dialogs with the VC and the school management but the school management has been posting them. He said the protest is to benefit the students too as the presummed increase in school fees for net section would affect both students and some members of the Union. That, according to him, is because some of them have children in the school.

However, effort made to speak with the VC proved abortive as the VC is said to have gone to meet the State Governor over the same matter.

While speaking with the students, the Dean of Student Affairs, Prof Adanlawo aka No Baga advised the students to remain calm as things would soon be settled out.

The Student Union President, Oladimeji Ibrahim Bayo (Prodigy), said the protest is not welcomed as the students are already prepared for the examinmation which was supposed to kick-start today.

He further stated that he called the ASUU Chairman during the protest and the ASUU chairman said he had sent message to his members not to come to school today. Therefore, the exam for today has been cancelled.

The Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Development) Professor Olufemi Adeoluwa was also at the scene. While addressing the SUG, he advised the students to be calm. He said the VC had gone to see the Governor over the matter. As regarding the supposed examination, he said the exam will not be holding today again but he assured the students that the matter would be resolve and the exam would be reschedule to start tomorrow.

Meanwhile, one of the students spoke with CloudGossips and lamented that when he was in 100 Level, it took God’s intervention to write the exam then and now that he is in his final year (400 Level), the same thing is happening.

Another student pleaded with the School Management to start the exam as they have already burnt so many candles and can’t wait to pour down what they have memorised.

The school campus is however seem to be normal as other activities are not affected. Only students and pedestrian are allowed to enter through the main gate.

Students are advised to continue with their reading as the exam is most likely to start tomorrow.

No one knows the major reason behind this but a source said it is because of the two months non payment of salary.

It has been reported earlier that the VC has employed about 500 staff recently thereby inhabiting the regular payment of salary.

We hope that the school gate opens soon.

Breaking: FG releases N50bn bail out to 35 states, Lagos opted out


The Federal Government has begun the disbursement of the first tranche of the N90bn conditional loan facility to some of the 35 states that have so far applied for the loan.

The Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, had on June 14, while announcing the N90bn conditional loan facility to states, said the funds had been secured from the private sector to state governments through the issuance of bonds in the bond market.

She had during a meeting with commissioners of finance from the 36 states of the federation said the loan would be given within a one year period.

The minister had explained that based on the agreement with the governors of the states and the commissioners of finance, N50bn would be released within the first three months where each of the 36 states would get about N1.3bn.

Thereafter, she noted that N40bn would be released over a nine-month period as the second tranche through the bond market where each state would received the sum of N1.1bn.

According to Punch, it was showed that the ministry of finance had commenced the disbursement from the first tranche of N50bn to some of the 35 states that applied.

It was gathered that Lagos State opted out from accessing the loan and as such did not send in any application.

A top government official, who spoke in confidence, told our correspondent that the precarious situation that most of the states found themselves which had made it impossible for them to pay workers’ salaries made the ministry of finance to start releasing the funds at the end of June.

The official said, “The disbursement of the budget support facility to states has started. Disbursement started in June and has been made to some of the 35 states that applied. Only one state which is Lagos State did not apply for the loan.

“Why we started in June was because of the precarious situation in which many of the states found themselves. There have been complaints about non-payment of salaries and there is no way we can just sit back and watch while workers continue to suffer.

“We have started monitoring the states based on the milestones that they are to achieve before further disbursements would be made. You know that there were conditions that were given to them before they could get more money.

“As soon as any state meets its threshold, that state would get additional funding but any state that fails to meet up with its agreed milestone will not get further disbursement.”

When contacted, the Media Adviser to the Minister of Finance, Mr Festus Akanbi, confirmed that the disbursement of the loan to the states had started.

He, however, said while 35 states applied for the loan, the ministry had commenced the disbursement to only some of them.

He, however, could not provide the number of states that have so far been given the loan.

He said, “35 states applied for the loan and disbursement commenced in June but I don’t have the total number of the states that have benefitted now.”

Some of the conditions attached to the loans are that a restriction would be placed on states borrowing from commercial banks; that all states must publish their financial statements, budgets and the quarterly budget performance; that states’ finances would no longer be shrouded in secrecy and items like security vote, feeding, travel among others would be made visible.

Other conditions are that states would review obsolete revenue laws and tariffs; and redefine Internally Generated Revenue to include non-tax revenue sources that will reflect local opportunities in each state especially in solid minerals.

In the same vein, the states have been directed to set target limits for recurrent to capital expenditure; set target for personnel costs as percentage of total budget; clean up their payroll by eliminating ghost workers as well as set up Efficiency Unit to reduce cost of governance.

Akanbi had last week told Punch that disbursement would not be made to any state in any month that the Federation Account Allocation Committee distributes over N500bn among the three tiers of government.

He had said once the monthly distributable revenue is up to the threshold of N500bn, the amount that would be available to each state government in that month would be enough to run its programme.

Ojudu and his intolerance for contrary opinions  by Bola Agboola

Someone sent this on a group I’m on Whatsapp. Could this be true? Give your opinion at the end of the post in the comment box.

Ekiti Sons and Daughters’ is one of the numerous Whatsapp platforms where bright minds of Ekiti extraction but different political ideology or background are gathered to chat course for t he development of the state vis-a-viz  happenings in the polity. Reputable politicians, captain of industries, movers and shakers of Ekiti and to some extent, Nigeria constitute membership of this Noble platform.

As obtainable in this group on daily basis, Special Assistant to Ekiti State Governor, Lere Olayinka like every other member of the group posted last night a statement detailing  alleged plan by some Ekiti sons, led by Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, Self-Acclaimed Human Rights Activist, Barr. Femi Falana, some police officials from Alagbon, Lagos to invade Ekiti State on Monday,10th of July, 2016 to effect the arrest of some prominent PDP members in the state.

Reactions trailed the statement, some against, others in favour.  A member of the platform Ayan Kolawole commented that “These vicious cycles of disruptive clandestine adventures in our state should stop! Our people are the ultimate victims of the debacles. Enough is enough”.

Next to follow is Senator Ojudu’s comment, it read “@Ayan Kolawole, why do you always chose to believe lies. Education prepare us to gather and process information. To think that I , Falana and AKERELE will be the one to coordinate an invading force as claimed by you seems to believe belie your subjectivity.

Do always try and cross check your information before commenting and condemning. Ordinarily I don’t respond to this kind of issues and lies. I have watched you in the last few months and your penchant to defend Fayose and condemn his so called enemies.

I thought I use to know you and relate with you. I am beginning to asks what has gone wrong. I arrived Lagos from Abuja via Air Peace at 11.00 am yesterday. I went home straight from the airport, picked my family and headed for the Ajayi’s wedding( the great Arc Ajayi of Ilupeju) in Lekki. Was their having fun with other reasonable and civilized Ekiti indigenes till 7.00 pm after which I left for home to rest for the day. ( You may wish to see my Facebook page and Instagram) This  morning I am heading back to Abuja with my wife and daughter. Where you and Lere saw me at a police station I do not know.

This is however not to say If I have any contribution to make to the excision of evil from the land where I was born and raised I will not. Unlike you Mr Ayan I have no other place to run to. I will keep returning to Ekiti, the land of my birth in which I am so proud. Whatever your blackmail I and Mr Femi Falana will continue to stand for Ekiti as we have in the past stood for Nigeria and let history and posterity judge us as as it will judge you and Mr Lere too in no distant future”.

Next to fly in was the comment from Aunty Titi  Adeyemo, a sister of mine from Orin Ekiti,  she wrote “Senator Ojudu your response to Uncle Ayan is unfair. Many of us are tired of the mayhem in Ekiti irrespective of which party is involved.  Uncle Ayan usually don’t take side at all. He was just showing his frustration over the continuous political war in Ekiti. We all love Ekiti so much and must stand for her peace. I am praying that both parties realizes that when two elephants fights that the grass usually  suffer. A true son or daughter of the soil should be frustrated with the  crap. Lies or propaganda,  Ekiti deserves PEACE. Evening Sir”.

My Oga from the UK, Dr. Bunmi Olorunfemi was the next to come in, his comment was kind of a bomb, he wrote: “So Chief Ayan Kolawole is not old enough  to chose  what to believe? This is a ridiculous  attack from Sen Ojudu.

I think  we are all aware of the  clandestine, evil machinations of those who want to destabilise  the govt of Ekiti state. They have  done  it in the past. So their modus operandi is clear to all. They should  stop hiding  behind  one finger!

Ekiti people  are not fools.

My dear Senator Ojudu, pls advise  your APC friends  to give peace a chance  in Ekiti state . The multiple  political murder cases hanging  around  the  neck of Ekiti APC leaders is yet to be resolved , yet you guys are plotting  further mayhem!

Don’t  you people  have conscience?

Segun Oni was in power , you guys made Ekiti state ungovernable , as you did in Fayose’s 1st term. Now its the same story of formenting trouble  and making  Ekiti State ungovernable  any time  your clique  is out of power in Ekiti.

Are you  guys the only people  that can govern in Ekiti state?

2018 is around  the  corner  for any serious  politician or political  party  to start legitimate  strategising.

Pls let APC show humility  and go back  to  the  drawing  board  and appeal to Ekiti electorates.

Ekiti people  are not dummies. They will  cast their votes intelligently  for candidates  of their choice.

Ekiti belongs  to all of us, APC, PDP, Labour, APGA, ACCORD   etc .

Pls take this as a frank advice  from an Omiye.

Ure Ekiti a so ju kete ria o”.

Another forumite,  SOJ by name responded thus: “@Bunni Olorunfemi you have spoken, i pray God will give our politicians in Ekiti the knowledge of understanding and how to embrace peace.Happy Sunday”.

Unknown to some members of the forum was the fact that conversations in the group in his usual manner was being forwarded to some other groups by Senator Babafemi Ojudu with other salient points of the discuss removed to tilt opinions in those groups in favour of Senator Ojudu’s stand, reasons for that is best known to him. Another member of the forum got wind of this and commented thus: It’s sad that what happened here is being trafficked to other forum without posting what exactly Mr. Ayan Kolawole said…. sad. My response to that on that forum is, and I still maintain it here : I am surprised that what mr Ayan Kolawole said was not posted alongside. Stop drowning opposing views and please stop forcing your views on anyone. Mr Ayan Kolawole is not a politician like you people and he is not partisan, for records purpose, I don’t know or have any dealing with mr Ayan Kolawole save that we are on this forum together. Thanks”.

Lere Olayinka’s comment was next to come in, he wrote: @Oga Ojudu, Take this from me and say amen to it, if you are not part of those planning to cause chaos in Ekiti State, may God continue to bless you and may you continue to prosper.

But if you are among those plotting to cause crisis in Ekiti just because your party openly lost the June 21, 2014 election,  may God judge you accordingly.

I must say this, we know the plans of Senator Ojudu and others. He should stop pretending. We know where the funding is coming from too.

I still wonder why you people are so evil. Someone won an election overwhelmingly, the first thing you did was to try to stop him from assuming office. In the process, Omolafe Aderiye was killed.
When your plot failed and he assumed office, you tried impeachment and it failed.

You claimed he won election through PHOTOCHROMIC, Military invasion, stomach infrastructure and so on.

You claimed today that Governor Fayose criticises the President and for that he must be removed. Did you Senator Babafemi Ojudu not criticised Nigeria presidents before? Did you not criticised Abacha? Is your own brand of democracy about silencing opposition?

Like I said earlier, God will judge all of you planners of evil against Ekiti and its people accordingly.

It is a very simple  case. I also have a prayer, those plotting  to  destabilise  Ekiti state and plunge Ekiti state into chaos, may God  send His Angels to  destabilise  their lives and evil plans. May their paths become dark and slippery. May their plans become  like  chaffs before  the  winds. May their chaos envelope and consume  them and their evil plans . May their  counsel  become foolishness  like  that of  Ahitophel in Jesus mighty  name. And for those seeking  the peace and progress of Ekiti state, may peace and  progress be your  portion  in Jesus mighty name. Ure Ekiti a so ju kete ria o!

Those who know Senator Babafemi Ojudu should tell him that this is not 2006 when he recruited fake DSS officers and fake EFCC officers to remove Fayose.

Ojudu should be reminded that I was part of the 2006 plot and I knew how Ojudu and co arranged pictures of hoodlums in an uncompleted building close to Afe Babalola’s house in Ibadan, claiming that they were sent by Fayose kill Baba Afe.

That game cannot work in 2016 and the APC should better begin to prepare for 2018″.

After Lere Olayinka’s “prayers” came Mr. Ayan’s comment which read:In Okun o ra ria l’Ekiti:

The acidic accusation on my being from Awe Senator Femi Ojudu as stated therein is without any doubt, baseless, erroneous and character assassination to say the least.

Except our Honorable Senator proves it otherwise,   I’m of opinion that his attack on me is a matter of mistaken identity. Because I went back and reviewed my recent posts on this forum, I couldn’t find his alleged postings being referred to.

Nevertheless, I as the older of the two, I’m  going to call him for one to one conversation. Yoruba bo, won ni “Inu lagba nya, agba kii yanu” (An elder should think quickly, rather than talk quickly).

Stay tuned folks”.

It was after this comment that Senator Ojudu pressed the exit button, deleting himself from the group. He left!

This act reminds me of his ilks, it’s reminiscent of actions of people with same mindset as Ojudu,  the Bunmi Ojos, the Falanas, the Ogeles, the Olotes, the Kenimanis, those who sees nothing good in what others does except they are party to it. They are quick to exit groups or gatherings with dissenting voice, they dread contrary opinions,  they are dictators who God did not give the opportunity to be audible in the military era.

They do that in their closet and come out to tell you they are democrats,  they tell you they are for the commoners, they tell you they are for development of Ekiti when indeed they are wicked beings, tyrants who can never stomach other people’s opinions no matter how sensible it appears. They try to hide it but it’s inbuilt, they didn’t start today, they block you on twitter once you ain’t kowtowing, they do same on facebook once you refuse to lick their rotten ass, I am a ready made witness,  Ojudu did that when I contradicted him on facebook,  same as Bunmi Ojo when I confronted him with facts on facebook.  No wonder the party they represent keep failing,  no wonder they have become deaf to the yearnings and aspirations of the common people.

Just imagine God giving unto this ‘Devils’ the kind of brain given unto Mark Zuckerberg…

I know of a thing, with or without them, Ekiti shall be Great. 

A Woman Killed, Beheaded and two legs cut while preaching in Abuja


In a sad tale reminiscent of the killing of a female trader at the Kofar Wambai Market in Kano State last month, husband of the female preacher killed early hours of yesterday in Abuja, Elisha Olawale, has opened up on how he got wind of the incident
.

Saturday started like any other day for Mrs. Eunice Olawale, a Deaconess and mother of seven, but little did she know that death was lurking in the corner when she stepped out for her early morning evangelism in Gbazango, a community in Kubwa, a satellite town in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.

Death struck in the most gruesome manner by the hands of some yet-to-be identified persons as Deaconess Olawale’s lifeless body was found around 6am at Bolar – pipeline area of Kubwa.

Her husband of 16 years, Mr. Olawale, believed to be a pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), recounted the painful ordeal of discovering his wife had been killed.

He said: “Two of my sons who are footballers went to the field to play. They just came back to tell me that they heard some footballers saying that they butchered a woman preaching the gospel early this morning.

“When they told me, I trekked down. When I got there, I didn’t see anybody but I saw blood on the ground. I then asked a policeman about a woman who was butchered to death.

“He said yes, it’s true and they have taken her to the police station. When we got to the police station, my wife was at the back of the pickup. They removed her head and two legs. We have taken her to the mortuary”.

The FCT police command said some suspects have been arrested in connection with the killing, although, it did not specify the number of those in custody.

What has this world turned to?
