Shobolabasa Day; hold Governor Dapo Abiodun responsible. 




Following a report published by Sun News on March 21st 2021 about how secondary school students in Ogun state organized a party tagged Shobolabasa Day, a sex party during which about four male students have sexual intercourse with a female student.

A public affairs commentator Azeem Salako have asked that the state Governor Mr. Dapo Abiodun should be held responsible for that unimaginable and peak of immorality among teenagers. Azeem Salako said this while on national television MITV, when he was guest of Tomisin Ojo on the popular Bumper Breakfast show.

He said although moral crises amongst secondary school students in Nigeria particularly in the government owned schools has been a perennial issue but the wild, weird and to say the audacious dimension it has taken in recent time in Ogun state is what has become unprecedented which now stand as a monster to future of the coming generation as well as the nation at large.

While reacting to the curiosity of his host, Azeem noted that there was nothing to be worried or surprised about. The state Governor, Mr Dapo Abiodun, who is currently the first citizen, and by social implication the father of all in Ogun state had sufficiently educate, inform, and instruct his (political) offspring on what it demands to be honored, celebrated and rewarded by the state. These children who are neither blind nor dumb were merely acting to type and manifesting the effect of political communication.

The Governor had last year rewarded Laycon, the winner of 2020 Big Brother Nija; a morally, pornographically, and sexually controversial program, barred and banned from airing on national television by the National broadcasting commission NBC but which was readily available to watch on social media.

Laycon in a grand state ceremony was rewarded with a humongous cash gift of five million naira, a choice of home, and appointed as the Ambassador for all the Youths in Ogun state; this by implication confers on his personality and what he has done to have remarkably won the Governor’s heart to be what all the youths from different divides (religious, education, cultural, business and entertainment) must emulate if they must claim and enjoy such prestigious honor, reward and recognition. Salako furthered noting that if one places this side by sides with one of the basic assumption of ‘elite theory’ which implied human as naturally in quest for wealth, honor and power; then nothing will be surprising, alarming, or shocking in what these students in Ogun state had recently turned into.

Azeem said it is unfortunate that citizens elect political leaders who have no idea and understanding of the concept of power, public offices and why their bearers must be sceptical and conservative in exercising them in the process of governance. What Mr Dapo Abiodun had done is without apology an arrant abuse use of office with legitimating immorality whereas it’s consequence cannot be unconnected with the said unceremonious and atrocious sexual party. To imagine the possibility of such aberration amongst secondary school students, is the same with the unbelievability of the dunce characters that saturates Nigeria political and public space, he concluded.

Remember there’s a God of second chance” – Ooni tells inmates during visit to Kuje Correctional Centre



Ooni of Ife

The Ooni of Ife, Ooni Adeyeye Ogunwusi, on Tuesday, kickstarted his annual coronation anniversary with a humanitarian visit to the Kuje Correctional facility in Abuja, Federal Capital Territory.

According to Director of Media & Public Affairs, Ooni’s Palace, Otunba Moses Olafare, the monarch told the inmates to always remember that God created everyone and that he’ss the God of second chance.

Ooni Ogunwusi was on an official duty in the F.C.T. when he decided to visit inmates at the facility for a programme organized by Hopes Alive Initiative (HAI) under his Chairmanship to motivate those who are often ignored by the society.

Addressing the gathering of inmates and prison’s officials after being welcomed into the facility by officers of the Nigeria Correctional Service, Ooni Ogunwusi who was flanked by his Queen & Deputy Convener of Hopes Alive Initiative HAI Olori Temitope Enitan-Ogunwusi, explained that the best part of human life is the one spent to serve others particularly the poor and vulnerable individuals.

“We should always remember that God created all of us and that is the God of second chance, we have seen in this country from prison to presidency, right from prison all the way to become the president of this country.

“So please do not write off yourselves, whatever the situation you might have found yourselves here remember that their is a God of second chance.

“I am here to tell you that there is a life after here, it does not end here and that is why you all must see this current phase of your life as a learning stage for the lessons with which you will live for life after here.

“I have not come here to tell you that it is not difficult but I am here to tell you that it is possible for you all to be better and be amongst the best members of the larger Nigerian society when you eventually leave here.”

Highpoint of the event was when five (5) inmates were freed after fulfilling all requirements including payment of bail/fines through the assistance of the HAI, with a promise to keep an eye on them and also empowering them in the trade they learned while in the Correctional Centre.

Other event earmarked for the Ooni Ogunwusi’s coronation anniversary is the Staff Appreciation Night during which all staff members (Traditional and Official) working with His Imperial Majesty will be honoured and gifted series of items including cars for the best performing ones.

In the same vein, parts of the statement said the Palace is not unaware of false, malicious and misleading reportage particularly by some unprofessional bloggers and armchair journalists about the event which does not tally with the event or any of its realities.

“These purveyors of fake news who are bent on blackmailing top personalities for income (Online traffic), prominence or whatever reasons predetermined by them wrote nonsense from the figment of their imagination and got it circulated by armchair (lazy) journalists with no regard for principles, laws and ethics of the prestigious pen profession.”

The Ooni’s Hopes Alive Initiative (HAI) has in the last five years engaged in the charity work which targets to give hope to the hopeless and vulnerable members of the society. Ooni Ogunwusi through the NGO has donated befitting homes to the orphanage and destitute, water borehole facilities to several market’s across the South West in Nigeria, educational materials to several schools in the country.
