To be Governor is not a Do or Die thing - Tunde Afe

By Victoria Daramola

A Governorship aspirant in Ekiti State, under the platform of the Abundant Nigeria Renewal Party, (ANRP)  Rev. Tunde Afe has said that contesting for the post of Governor in Ekiti is not a do or die affair for him as he said, he is not going there to be served but, to serve Ekiti people.

The Senior Pastor of House of Faith Christian Centre in Ado-Ekiti, made this assertion at the Commissioning of the newly renovated secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists  (NUJ)  in Ekiti State on Thursday, 29th 2018. " I see my aspiration as an opportunity because, during the process, I have come across some important personalities which ordinarily, I would not have known", he added.

A Trip to the Happiest Country in the World By Femi Oguntayo

One of the things I dream of is a holiday or a kind of trip, to a country like Finland. Many who do not know what Finland is made of; do ask me, Why Finland?” Well right from my secondary school days, I had always dreamt of studying abroad and one of the countries that drew my attention then was Finland because of her Tuition-free education, even at the University level.

Many may want to say, it is not only Finland that offers tuition-free education abroad, yes! but, there are many other reasons I have fallen in love with Finland and the Finns (who are in fact the happiest people in the world). As it would be impossible to list them all, I will just make a random list of some interesting and fun facts about Finland  hope you enjoy it!
Having done a lot of researches about Finland and the Finns, I have discovered that they are full of interesting contrasts, such as the four seasons, the Midnight Sun and winter darkness, urban and rural, East and West. Some of worlds best Northern Ligh…

Adaramodu Turns Beautiful Bride At Daughter's Wedding By Tai Oguntayo

There are wedding ceremonies and there are wedding ceremonies. Leaving Ado Ekiti for the wedding ceremony of the daughter of the former Chief of Staff to the erstwhile Ekiti State Governor in Ibadan, I never, in my widest imagination, thought I was going for a sort of mega rally, replica of Buhari's presidential campaign in 2015 where every guber aspirant struggled to showcase himself. Getting into the 2000 capacity Jogor Hall, I was confused because I found it difficult to actually say whether I SAS in for a wedding or a political panorama.

Despite the tight screening by the security operatives at the entry port of the reception, the whole seats reserved for the beautiful bride inside the hsll had been fully occupied. We had no option than to hijack seats reserved for the bridegroom and interestingly enough, the groon's were also accommodating. So there was no demation in any way between the two families. Whichever side you turned to you would see the creame de la in the pol…
