It is a generational curse for me to claim I am wiser than my children in the 21st century. I am wiser than my father and my children will be wiser than me. Solomon never saw airplane, I saw it. My children may grow to use flying vehicles.
And all things of today will be outdated one day. That is life. I pray all my subjects should be wiser and successful than me.

Due to the allegations Leveled on Kemi Adeosun about her forging of NYSC certificate the opposition party, PDP has called on the president to take action by sacking and tried the minister.
The Peoples Democratic Party has charged President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately sack, order the arrest and trail of the Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, for alleged forgery of her NYSC certificate.
The PDP urged Buhari not to provide cover for Adeosun as has become the character of the President whenever close allies or agents were found wanting on issues of corruption.
A statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja on Saturday, alleged that the revelation had vindicated the party’s position on the Buhari’s cabinet members.
He said, “The world can now see how the Buhari Presidency has been concealing sharp practices under it. We can now see why there is humongous corruption under President Buhari’s watch and why Mr. President has refused to take any concrete steps to check the sleazes in his administrations.
“Perhaps such ‘artful dodgers’ were deliberately hired and placed in revenue related agencies to perfect the pilfering of our common patrimony for interests in the Buhari Presidency.
“The PDP challenges President Buhari to prove himself a man of integrity by allowing an open system-wide and independent inquest into all alleged corrupt practices in his presidency.”
The spokesman for the former ruling party said the President should also allow an open inquest into his handling, with Adeosun, of all the nation’s depleted foreign financial instruments, including the Excess Crude Account, from which funds he said were allegedly taken without recourse to the National Assembly.
He also said Buhari should allow an inquest into his administration’s borrowing of over N10tn in 30 months, with Adeosun as minister of finance and the purposes for which the money was used.
