National leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu has welcomed Ayodele Fayose, a former Governor of Ekiti State at his home in Lagos.

The meeting took place on Tuesday.

Fayose said he met with Tinubu at the latter’s residence in Lagos State.

In a tweet via his verified Twitter handle, the former governor said he visited Tinubu to wish him quick recovery.

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain lamented that people hardly celebrate others when they are alive.

“Today, I was at Bourdillon to wish Asiwaju Bola Tinubu soonest recovery. Health issues know no political party and in this part of the world, we seldom celebrate people when they are alive. Rather, we like to sign condolence registers. To me, that is not the best way to live,” Fayose wrote.

Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State has just returned from the United Kingdom, UK, where he went for treatment.

While in the UK, the APC National Leader had a knee surgery.

He, however, returned to Nigeria on Friday night after spending three months.

Lagos Repairs Lekki, Ikoyi Toll Gates Ahead Of Planned Re-opening

Ahead of the planned re-opening of the tollgates, the Lagos State Government has repaired the Lekki toll plaza along the Lekki-Epe Expressway and the Admiralty Circle toll plaza on the Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge.

The tollgates, which were the epicentre of the protests, were shut during the #EndSARS protests in October 2020 but were eventually burnt after the shooting of unarmed civilians on October 20.

Punch correspondent learnt that the display boards on the tollgates had begun advertising again, generating some revenue for the Lekki Concession Company which operates the tollgates on behalf of the state government.

The display boards are operated by Loatsad Promomedia Limited, an advertising firm owned by Seyi Tinubu, the son of All Progressives Congress leader, Bola Tinubu.

The Judicial Panel of Inquiry and Restitution set up by the state government to investigate cases of brutality and human rights violations committed by operatives of the dissolved Special Anti-Robbery Squad ordered gave the LCC the permission to re-open the tollgates on February 6, 2021 which sparked outrage among youths.

The Managing Director of the LCC, Yomi Omomuwasan, had stated at a press conference alongside the Commissioner for Information, Gbenga Omotosho; and the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Gboyega Akosile, that it would take three to six months to repair the toll gates before it would be officially re-opened.

Months after repairs, however, the state government has yet to re-open it.

Governor Obaseki Explains Why He Is Yet To Sign The Anti-open Grazing Bill Into Law


Governor Godwin Obaseki

Governor Godwin Obaseki on Monday, October 11, gave reasons on why he is yet to sign into law the ban on Open Grazing in Edo state

Speaking at a public hearing on the bill organised by the state government, Obaseki stated that signing the bill into law is easy but it will be senseless to enact unenforceable law.

Urging residents of the state not to play politics with the situation, the Governor also averred that there are security implications because some people have now "joined and are using these herders to perpetuate insecurity."

He said;

“To sign the law is always easy, but it doesn’t make sense to enact a law that you can’t enforce.

"The best way to enforce a law is to bring everybody that is affected together so that nobody would say this is not what we agreed on and the law can then be enforced.

“As long as we’ve decided that we’ll eat meat and drink milk, we’ll have to sit down and rearrange the business, engaging the people who are producing these foods on how they must organize themselves.

“Let’s not play politics with this issue; let’s deal with it honestly and openly. There are security implications because some people have now joined and are using these herders to perpetuate insecurity.

“My worry is that if we don’t separate them so that we can know those people using cattle herding to perpetrate crime and insecurity in our state, we’ll be missing the point.

“There are people doing their legitimate business of herding cattle and producing meat, and there are criminals who want to destabilise our country and state."
