Akinyele who died at the age of 81 served as a Minister of Information under Ibrahim Babangida, military regime between 1985 and 1993.
Akinyele later became Chairman of the Nigerian Sports Commission.
He was born in Ondo State on April 24, 1938 and attended his primary and secondary education there.
President Muhammadu Buhari has since condoled with family of Akinyele.
The President in a statement on Friday commiserated with the government and people of Ondo State, friends and professional colleagues of the departed.
He urged them to take solace in the lasting legacies of the former colorful minister, who also served as Chairman of National Sports Commission and Chairman of National Reconciliation Committee.
As a trained teacher and Public Relations Specialist, President Buhari affirmed that Chief Akinyele’s scrupulousness, discipline and diligence were always obvious to those who worked closely with him, and his love for the nation, which was zealously demonstrated through providing exemplary leadership.
The Supreme Court on Friday ruled that President Muhammadu Buhari was “eminently qualified” to contest the February 23 presidential election, according to a report by Punch.
The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, prepared the full judgment of the apex court which is being read by Justice John Okoro.
The full judgment delivered on Friday was to provide explanations for the apex court’s summary decision of October 30 which dismissed the appeal by the Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar challenging the victory of Buhari at the February 23 presidential poll.
In the full judgment of the apex court delivered on Friday, the court affirmed the decision of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal which held that Buhari possessed the requisite educational qualification to contest the poll.
It held that the Nigerian Constitution only required a candidate contesting the presidential election to be educated up to secondary education even when the candidate does not possess the certificate.
It added that by virtue of the provisions of the Constitution, a candidate who possesses a primary school certificate and has worked in the public or private service for a period not less than 10 years, and can read, write and communicate in the English language to the satisfaction of INEC is qualified to contest.
It also held that contrary to the contention of the appellants, Buhari did not submit false information about his educational qualification to the Independent National Electoral Commission.
It also ruled that the appellants failed to prove that the www.factsdontlie.ng from which the appellants downloaded the results of the election which they relied on, belonged to INEC.
The Supreme Court also said the appellants failed to prove the alleged irregularities including overvoting.
It added that the appellants merely dumped documents on the lower court without calling witnesses to demonstrate them.
It ruled that it was alarming that the appellants only called five polling unit agents across the entire polling units in the country in their attempt to prove the alleged non-compliance with the provisions of the Electoral Act.
The judgment is still being delivered.
A man has shared his marriage woes begging for help on how to resolve the issue.
He took to Nairaland forum to complain about his worries and wrote:
"We got married in 2012 and ever since then we have been blessed with 3kids (3,boys).
I have a monthly upkeep of 130k for my wife as she only comes to our factory and goes home without doing much for the day aside taking care of kids and cooking.
I noticed that each time we have a misunderstanding, we both keep straight faces for days and she behaves as though she is less concerned to make up. It doesn't affect her chores or cooking as for me I hardly reject food served.
Now, after a couple of days, she would come for sex without wanting us to discuss and resolve the disagreement first.
Even when I feel rudely insulted, this happens. She feels whatever she does doesnt matter as long as Las Las na sex go end am. But I feel it's wrong and issues should be kept straight and fun time separate.
So we had same issues last week and we have been keeping straight faces yet I've been eating her food. Sometimes she joins me for mng prayers, sometimes she does her privately ( we do together before any misunderstanding)
So this morning she appeared stark nude to my room and demanded for sex after almost 15 days.
I told her it would be unfair if we sweep the past events under the duvet. She got up and told me she wasn't ready to discuss any past misunderstanding that she came to f*uck.
I told her I wasn't ready till issues are ironed out.
She taught it was business as usually as my John Thomas always disappoint me each time I see her nude but today I was ready to turn her down.
I want to know if it's proper to always treat your spouse the way you like knowing fully well that sex is their weak point for reconciliation?
Mature minds pls."

Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, has reacted to the court ruling in the case filed by Busola Dakola against Biodun Fatoyinbo.
Recall that Busola, who accused Fatoyinbo of molesting her as a teenager had demanded for a public apology and N10million cost of action fee.
The allegations of rape by singer, Timi Dakolo’s wife, Busola, against popular pastor of The Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo, was a hot topic on social media recently as many popular personalities took a stance on the issue with a number of them clamouring for justice.
The High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Court 12 sitting at Bwari dismissed the case filed by Busola Dakolo and exonerated Fatoyinbo.
The court held that the matter amounts to injustice, and an abuse of judicial process and held that the case is purely sentimental, empty.
The court awarded costs of N1,000,000 against Busola Dakolo and held that it would have been 10 times more but resisted it because there are women with legitimate claims who may approach the court.
Wale Jana shared a photo of Biodun Fatoyinbo and tagged it “Congrats Baba @biodunfatoyinbo we said it from the beginning. Case has been dismissed and damages of one million naira is to be paid to @biodunfatoyinbo #ThankYouJesus"
Tonto Dikeh reacted and commented: “The money shld be used to feed the IDP”…
She continued, “You can’t mock God… I celebrate with PB”

Love is blind, even when it is a soldier that is involved.

Students of the Lagos State University will start paying a sum of N150,000 tuition fee for a second stream undergraduate programme.
The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun, said the second stream degree programme was introduced to help deepen the entrepreneurship skills of students of the institution.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports the Vice-Chancellor as saying, “Our regular Stream 1 programme tuition fee is still N25,000, while medical students pay N37,000.
“But for Stream 2 entrepreneurship programme, the tuition fee is N150,000, aside from acceptance and medical fees,”
However, Fagbohun was said to have refuted speculation that LASU had increased tuition fees for its undergraduate programmes.
It is not clear whether or not the second stream degree programme would be optional or mandatory for students of the university.
According to NAN, Fagbohun said the entrepreneurship programme, which would run along with normal undergraduate degrees, would prepare students to be self-employed and employers of labour.
The Vice-Chancellor added that “Research indicates that small-medium enterprises employ more than 80 per cent of the workforce in Nigeria.
“That is why we have a very close working relationship with SMEs, so they can impact on the university and impart right entrepreneurship skills to the students.
“Before starting, the Stream 2 entrepreneurship programme will go through all the approval processes of the university.
“Critical thing for LASU is quality assurance which means the two-stream programmes will be standard and run successfully together without any programme failing.
“We have a directorate of quality assurance that monitors every programme of the university in order to achieve best practices,” the vice-chancellor said.
He said that entrepreneurship courses would be taught only during the first year of the regular Stream 1 programme, while it would be taught throughout the duration of the Stream 2 programme.
Also speaking, Prof. Martins Anetekhan, Director, LASU Centre for Entrepreneur, said the university was concerned about widespread unemployment among graduates of Nigerian universities.
“After the investigation, we realised that most graduates are not getting jobs because the available job vacancies can not accommodate them.
“It means they have to be skillful and adjust their mindset to become entrepreneurs who can also employ others and contribute to national development.
“Apart from giving them knowledge on normal degree programme, LASU introduced Stream 2 programme so they can also acquire some skills, knowledge through entrepreneurship programmes,” he said.
Anetekhan said that there were 79 different areas of entrepreneurship for the Stream 2 programme and teaching had been arranged such that it would not clash with the normal degree programmes.
“We should all know that entrepreneurship programme is the delivery of handsome skills and LASU partnered with many small scale industries to teach the students,” he said.
Abibat Olayinka Owolabi, the child of a plank seller at the Bodija Market in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, Mr. Aliu Owolabi, has emerged as overall best graduating Master’s Degree student at the University of Ibadan.
Miss Owolabi graduated from the Department of Botany, Faculty of Sciences in the institution.
DAILY POST reports that Abibat, a 25-year-old indigene of Ibadan recently had her traditional marriage ceremony.
Vice-Chancellor of the university, Professor Abel Idowu Olayinka announced yesterday in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital during the convocation ceremonies of the university that Owolabi graduated with a CGPA 7.0 to emerged as the overall graduating student in the institution.
Olayinka stated that with Owolabi making a perfect Cumulative Grade Point of 7.0, she is declared as the overall best among the graduating candidates of Master’s degrees at this year’s Convocation.
Owolabi is the third of five children and the first to earn a Master’s Degree among the children of her parents. She equally lauded her parents, Mr and Mrs Aliu Adisa Owolabi for their supports, pointing out that without them, she could not have gone this far in life. She attributed her success to her creator, saying that if not God, she would not have made the grade.
According to her, though, life was tough because her background was humble, all along, she put in her best in whatever she did, stressing that hard work and faith in God were the secrets behind her success in life.
“Growing up was difficult considering my background. I am not from a rich home. My father and mother are traders. My father, Mr Aliu Adisa Owolabi, sells planks at Bodija Market and my mother, Mrs Kadijat Owolabi, sells foodstuff too. So, you can see that I am not from a rich background.
“But I must tell you my parents really supported me. At a point when they were getting tired, and there was no money, my mentor, Professor Egunyomi Adeyemi, a retired professor came in. He took up paying my school fees and helping me in other ways. Alhamdulillah, here I am today, I give all praises to God.
“As for my career, I want to be a researcher in my field. I prefer to be a researcher than to be a lecturer. But that does not say that I cannot be a lecturer. The issue is that researcher first and lecturing second”.
The Court of Appeal in Abuja has dismissed the case filed by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Great Ogboru on the March 2019 Governorship Elections in Delta state for lacking in merit.
A unanimous decision by a panel of five justices affirmed the decisions of the tribunal which upheld the victory of Ifeanyi Okowa as Governor of the state.
Mr. Ogboru had approached the appellate court in a bid to upturn the September judgement of the elections tribunal that dismissed its petition seeking the cancellation of the March 2019 elections in which Okowa was declared a winner for lacking in merit.
The APC candidate who appealed on 37 grounds stated that the tribunal erred on the point of law.
He contended that the total number of votes declared for the PDP candidate outnumbered the total number of accredited voters during the elections.
But the appeal court ruled in favour of the respondent, Ifeanyi Okowa on the ground that the appellant is unable to prove the case.
The panel also held that the appellant was unable to mention at least one accredited voters who did not vote in the election, nor was he able to call at least an agent of the political party who on the point of law is the most qualified person to testify in a case of over-voting.
The court, however, dismissed the entire appeal for lacking in merit.
It affirmed the decisions of the tribunal which upheld the victory of Ifeanyi Okowa in the March 2019 governorship election.
No cost was however awarded against the appellant.

The Third Force Movement of Nigeria on Saturday expressed its support for the nationwide protest, #RevolutionNow!, scheduled for Monday.
It also faulted the arrest of one of the conveners of the planned protest, Omowole Sowore.
The group’s position was contained in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Olusegun Obe.
Obe said all members and supporters of the movement have been asked to join the protest nationwide.
The statement read, “Third Force Movement of Nigeria under the umbrella of the Nigeria Intervention Movement, wishes to reaffirm its commitment to the planned nationwide mass protests against bad political system and malgovernance (sic) in Nigeria tagged “#Revolution Now!” starting on Monday, August 5, 2019.
“For the avoidance of doubt, this historic nationwide revolutionary action initiated by Nigerian masses and youths is purely aimed at overthrowing the corrupt and warped political system being operated by the country as well as changing the oppressive ruling class in Nigeria.
“Therefore, we have directed all our members, allies and supporters in the Third Force Movement, especially of the Nigeria Intervention Movement, Alliance for Defence of Democracy and some revolutionary political parties to join and support the historic mass action for a new Nigeria as already endorsed by icons like Prof Wole Soyinka, Alhaji Balarabe Musa, Dr Oby Ezekwesili among others.
“It is for this reason that we condemn in unequivocal stance the subversive arrest and detention of one of the key facilitators of #Revolution Now!, Sowore Omoyele; the Leader of the Take-It-Back Movement, who was forcefully abducted in his home around 1.25 a.m. today, Saturday and whisked away to an unknown destination.
“We hereby demand from the Nigerian Presidency and its witch-hunting Department of State Security apparatus, the immediate release of Omoyele Sowore, as his continued incarceration will not deter our forces and cadres from embarking on the planned mass action against the oppressors of Nigerians on Monday as earlier scheduled.”

It has been reported that a student of Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU), formerly known as Anambra State University, was rushed to the hospital after she allegedly attempted suicide by drinking a popular pesticide called Sniper.
The lady, whose name has been given as Okafor Chidinma, was supposed to have graduated with the last set but is being held back because of an incident.
She took to Facebook before the act to leave a suicide note of some sort. In the note, she explained why the school is still holding her back from graduating with her mates.
She explained that her HOD invited her for a meeting where she was accused of stealing a book and made to face the school's disciplinary panel. She was also made to write a statement and replace the book in question.
Yet, she said the school has refused to allow her to graduate after four years of study.
She added in the Facebook suicide post: "I tagged my coursemates mostly because apparently one or two of them is responsible for this."
She continued: "Okafor Chidinma is out of the way. I hope your life gets better."
Oluchi Okala Miracle is presently being celebrated on social media after she bagged First Class honours in the Nigerian Law School.
The beautiful damsel had earlier graduated from the Faculty of Law at the Abia State University, also with first class honours.
The young intellect from the God's own state university shares her story on her Facebook page and many have been congratulating her.
The bad news here is that her brideprice as an Igbo girl must have increased by 10 times, thereby sidelining the poor men.

Halima Abubakar, Nigerian Nollywood actress, says there is nothing wrong in making one’s daughter undergo “virginity tests,” adding that her father also did that to her when she was young.
Clifford Harris Jr., American rapper better known as TI, had recently revealed that he takes Deyjah Harris, his 18-year-old daughter, to a gynecologist annually to check if her hymen is still intact.
“Deyjah’s 18, just graduated high school now and she’s attending her first year of college, figuring it out for herself. And yes, not only have we had the conversation [about sex], we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen. So it’s this one time we go, I think this might have been after her 16th birthday,” the rapper had said.
On Thursday, the film star took to her Instagram handle to back the rapper while baring her opinion on the topic which has since dominated social media discussions.
She said, although she hated her father at the time, all she later saw was a man trying to protect his “stubborn daughter.”
“I don’t see anything wrong in checking if your daughter is still a virgin. I remember my dad taking me to see different doctors, just to be sure. He stopped after the third time. I hated him a bit. But he is just a father trying to protect his stubborn daughter,” Abubakar wrote.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo yesterday apologised after his security aides beat up a photojournalist with the Vanguard Newspapers, attached to the State House, Abayomi Adeshida.
This happened at the State House Banquet Hall during the opening of the Nigeria Diaspora Investment Summit organised by the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission chaired by Abike Dabiri-Erewa.
Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande who apologized on behalf of the vice president, in a tweet, said the incident was “regretted”, but had been resolved “and I’ve apologised to him for any embarrassment caused.”
Adeshida had alleged that he was taking shots of the vice president taking a tour of the exhibition stands at the event when five personnel of the Department of State Security pounced on him.
He said Osinbajo was, at that moment, being presented a copy of magazine as souvenir at a particular stand.
Adeshida, who said he was not told what he did wrong, alleged that the security details hit and dragged him on the floor.
Adeshida, who said his camera was damaged, added: “I was shocked when these DSS men started beating me for no apparent reason. They tore my Presidential Villa accreditation tag on the shirt and dragged me on the floor while hitting me and kicking me.”

Mr Kehinde Adeleye, Zonal Commanding Officer RS5 Benin City, said this during its Ember months campaign in Onitsha, Anambra State on Thursday.
Adeleye said there were cases in the past when masquerades engaged in acts which resulted in traffic crashes and inconvenience.
According to him, this is a season of masquerades and there were times when they cause accidents in the past.
“This time we may have to impound such masquerades,” he said.
Adeleye, who represented Mr Boboye Oyeyemi, FRSC Corps Marshal, warned motorists against flouting traffic rules and embarking on night journeys.
He thanked the government of Anambra for its support of the FRSC and restated the commitment of the corps to ensuring safe motoring environment in the state.
In his address, Mr Andrew Kumapayi, Sector Commander in Anambra, said the FRSC was ready to ensure safe motoring environment in the state.
Kumapayi said the command had already identified strategic routes in the state and deployed personnel to effectively check such areas.
The campaign was declared open by Governor Willie Obiano, who was represented by his deputy, Dr Nkem Okeke.
Femi Falana, a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN), says legal measures will be taken against the Department of State Services (DSS) over its refusal to release Omoyele Sowore, convener of the #RevolutionNow Movement.
A federal high court in Abuja had on Wednesday oordered the release of Sowore alongside Olawale Adebayo better known as “Mandate”, but the DSS did not comply with the order.
In a statement on Thursday, Falana said this is the second time the DSS would ignore court order to release Sowore.
“On 8th August 2019, the Honourable Justice Taiwo Taiwo granted the application of the State Security Service to detain Mr. Omoyele Sowore for 45 days,” he said.
“Upon the expiration of the 45-day detention period the court granted Mr. Sowore bail on September 24, 2019. He met the bail conditions but the State Security Service refused to release him from custody.
“Mr. Sowore and Mandate Bakare were subsequently charged with treasonable felony, cyber stalking and money laundering on September 30, 2019. The trial judge, the Honourable Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu admitted the defendants to bail under very stringent conditions. Upon meeting the bail conditions Justice Ojukwu directed the State Security Service to release the defendants from detention.
“But in utter contempt of the orders of Justice Ojukwu the State Security Service has refused to release Messrs Sowore and Bakare from custody.
“Since the State Security Service is not above the law of the land we shall embark on appropriate legal measures to ensure compliance with the court orders.”
Peter Afunanya, DSS spokesman, did not respond to a message seeking reaction to the matter.
