DUBAI PROPERTY SAGA: FG URGED TO REVIEW FOREIGN POLICY.

Published

on

Following his recent outburst about the nasty experience he had while engaging in a business transactions with a Dubai-based company, THE FIRST GROUP, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, UAE, Mr. Jubril Sanusi, an Ibadan based engineer and business man, has called on federal government to review his foreign policy with a view to protecting Nigerian business men anywhere in the world.

Mr. Sanusi made this call against the backdrop of inhuman treatments which Nigerians in diaspora are being subjected to on daily basis not only in South-Africa but now in Dubai, UAE.

According to him, Dubai which is generally regarded as a tourists’ haven are being turned into nightmares for Nigerians business investors, the reason he attributed to the weak foreign policy of the government.

While speaking further on the development, Mr. Sanusi declared that Nigerian business men in Dubai, UAE, have been turned into a money making machine by some UAE citizens who have figured out that Nigerian business men in that country are like ‘orphans’ whose government care less about their predicaments adding that hardworking Nigerians who had attempted to invest in the country real estate’s business are loosing their hard earned money to some UAE fraudsters masquerading as real estate agents.

Shedding more light on the purported transaction, Mr. Sanusi stated that if not for his faith in the sanctity of judiciary, he would have been duped in a multimillion naira business transaction he had with THE FIRST GROUP located at 22nd Floor Tameem House, TECOM, Dubai, UAE and its sister company, TGF PROPERTY MANAGEMENT.

“ I was approached to buy an executive suit in the First Central Tecom, Dubai, United Arab Emirates from one Ahmad Al Abdullah AlAnsaari. I made some payment through a company, their representative, named TGF PROPERTY MANAGEMENT. The agreement was that the suite will not be totally handed over to me until I finish all the payment they requested for.

“Eventually, I made the final payment of 1,597,231United Arab Emirates Durham on the Seventh of May, 2013. I was expecting them to do final hand over of all the necessary document, they did not but instead stated that the suite will be managed by another company, The Forever Green Management LLC on my behalf.

“What i saw was that they started remitting some money to me which according to them is the proceeds from the suite. I was surprised because we never discussed this and moreover, how they came about the rents for the suite was not disclosed to me. All my plea to make them do the needful and acted based on the agreement we had fell on their deaf ears. This made me to hire an attorney who engaged them in a legal battle and eventually got them to release the “Title Deed”, the document which states my proof of ownership just August, last year (2016).

“Up till now, I am still yet to take the full possession of the suite but I am confident that with the faith in God and help of my attorney, I will totally hands off these people from the property. I am saying this because I don’t want other people to make the same mistake and should be more watchful and careful as regards the people they want to be doing business with.

In a bid to get the reaction of the company regarding the allegation made by Mr. Sanusi, our correspondent sent an email to Mr. Doaa Hussein Elzawawy, the company’s Owner Service Executive whose initial reaction was to inquire about our correspondent’s relationship with Mr. Sanusi but failed to reply the subsequent messages mailed to him as the time of publishing this story.

Mr Sanusi has, however, vowed that, through the legal means he has embarked upon, he would ensure that THE FIRST GROUP gives him the total possession of his acquired suite.

Catholic bishops advocate review of Nigeria’s security architecture

Published

on

Catholic Bishops of Ibadan Ecclesiastical Province, comprising Ibadan Archdiocese, Ilorin, Ondo, Oyo, Ekiti and Osogbo Dioceses, on Tuesday called for a thorough review of Nigeria’s security architecture.

The bishops, who gathered at the Jubilee Conference Centre in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, also expressed concern over the rising insecurity in the country, adding that it was unfortunate that the Federal Government has remained impervious to this call.

The meeting had in attendance, Most. Rev. Gabriel Abegunrin, (Ibadan), Most. Rev. Felix Ajakaiye (Ekiti), Most. Rev. Emmanuel Badejo (Oyo), Most. Rev. Felix Job (Ibadan).

Others are: Most. Rev. AyoMaria Atoyebi (Ibadan), Most. Rev. John Oyejola (Osogbo), Most. Rev. Jude Arogundade (Ondo) and Most. Rev. Paul Olawoore (Ilorin).

According to them, “With the current realities, it has become more necessary than ever to demand the review of Nigeria’s security architecture. Given  the campaign promises of the present government and the cauldrons of insecurity erupting all over the country, it is unfortunate that the Federal Government has remained impervious to this call. As a consequence, we parade a Nigerian Army that has not been able to effectively check the atrocities of Boko Haram for over a decade. How does one deny the allegation that kidnapping and banditry are abetted by government when  even State governments pay bandits and herdsmen as a means of placating them?

“How can we claim to have a Nigeria Police, when the body is no longer trusted to protect the same people it was set up to serve in many parts of the country?”, the bishops questioned.

The Catholic Bishops, in a communique jointly signed by the President, Most Rev. Gabriel Abegunrin and the Secretary, Most Rev. John Oyejola  at the end of  their first meeting for the year 2021, identified the ongoing effort of the governors of some South Western States  to regulate the activities of Fulani herdsmen within the zone, noting that insincerity, selfish interests and lack of political will had in the past, caused needless destruction of life and property and inflicted untold pain and hardship on innocent citizens.

However, they urged the governors to shun deceptive adulations and empty promises on issues that impact the security of life and property.

The communique read, “they must work with the security agencies to courageously implement the law in all cases and sanction those who blatantly and murderously flout it in their territories. No Nigerian or foreigner should be above the law in any part of the country.

“It is frustrating to see Governors, constitutionally empowered  as the first security officers of their States, being impeded and rendered ineffective by mitigating actions and pronouncements allegedly made on behalf of the Federal government, when they take lawful steps to respond to security needs in their States. Such manner of governance, that exerts itself to protect the interest of a segment of the population at the expense of the security of life and property of the majority, makes the emergence  of militias and self-appointed messiahs inevitable.

“We therefore join all well-meaning Nigerians who have called on the authorities to allow alternative and lawful initiatives which are established for protecting life and property like the South Western Security Network (SWSN), codenamed Amotekun, to thrive. Such initiatives deserve to be supported and optimised  as a complimentary security organization for the benefit of the people in different parts of Nigeria”.

Properties worth over N50m lost to inferno – Sunday Igboho reacts

Published

Yoruba activist and Oodua  Republic agitator, Chief  Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as ‘Sunday Igboho’ has said that properties worth  over N50 million has been lost to the early Tuesday morning inferno at his Soka residence in Ibadan

Reacting on Tuesday, shortly after his house went up in flames, Sunday Igboho explained that the arsonists broke the gate to the building to gain entrance before setting the house on fire.

He stressed that the two people living in the house fled for their lives in the chaos.

“Around 03:30 am this morning, my siblings living in my old house came to alert me that some hoodlums were at the house, shooting sporadically, and that they had forced the gate open and set the house ablaze.

“My siblings escaped unhurt but my house was burnt. When we got there, the hoodlums had escaped so we called the fire service to put out the fire.

“I am surprised that some Yoruba people could be supporting killer herdsmen to destroy my house. This saddens me.

“My agitations are for all of us to come together against killer herdsmen who have been terrorizing the Yorubas by kidnapping, killing our brothers, and raping our women in Yoruba Land.

“To my amazement, some Yoruba people are aiding these killer herdsmen.

I expected them to come and attack my residence where I live now to show that they mean business.

“I assure you if they had, I would have been able to give you evidence of the hoodlums that did this.

“The property destroyed in that inferno would not be less than fifty million”, he added.
