MY ASSET -OLUWO
Unlike the Yoruba adage “Erin ki fon, ki omo re tun fon”. (Asipa owe ni) As required of a responsible, passionate and compassionate father for his subjects, i pray that, they(subjects) should be greater than me. The strength of my asset is measured by the greatness of my children. kings are fathers to all, of which their greatness is my glory.
I want to tell you that no one is richer than the king. You are all part of my assets. If the richest one is my child. Whose asset is he carrying? Even, Dangote is my asset, I am richer than him.
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And all things of today will be outdated one day.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.
President Mohammadu Buhari has vow to punish all those politicians behind the upsurge of of violence and other criminal devices that has been bringing his government to rein.
President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday in Monguno, northern Borno, vowed to fish out and punish politicians whom, he said, were deliberately instigating violence in some states as a way of seeking relevance in Nigerian politics.
Buhari, according to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity Malam Garba Shehu, wa s speaking as the Special Guest of Honour at the closing events of the 2018 Army Day celebrations which the army chose to stage in the one-time stronghold of Boko Haram terrorists, 136 kilometres from Maiduguri.
The president repeated what he told Christian leaders on Thursday that a solution was being found to the deadly clashes between farmers and herdsmen and whosoever found culpable would be brought to justice.
Thanking the armed forces for keeping the country safe, he acknowledged that there were still challenges faced by the nation: “This does not mean there are no challenges. There are pockets of violence in several states. Some deliberately instigated by disgruntled politicians who have lost all arguments and are desperate to cause mayhem as a way of seeking relevance. We shall fish them out and punish according to the provisions of the law.”
Making a self-assessment of the administration he has led in the last three years since his election, the President said, “We have worked tirelessly to ensure and preserve the dignity and sanctity of life. When I was sworn in as the President and Commander- in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I promised that this administration would tackle the challenges of insecurity, poor economy and fight corruption.
“We are all witnesses to the fact that our once battered economy as a nation has exited recession and is once again vibrant. Our nation is safe again, thanks to the efforts of our security agencies.
“I want to use this opportunity to reassure the world, Nigerians and the families of the remaining kidnapped Chibok girls and Leah Sharebu of the Dapchi School girls that this administration will not relent in our efforts to see that they are all released. I also want to reassure all Nigerians that the issue of Farmers and Herdsmen clashes is being tackled and all those found culpable would be brought to justice. Let me quickly remind us at this point to always be tolerant, loving and ready to give peace a chance.”
