THE All Progressives Congress, APC  governorship aspirant in Oyo state, Engr. Raufu Olaniyan  has congratulated Governor Abiola Ajimobi over the recent wedding of his Son, Ajibola Ajimobi to Fatimah Ganduje daughter of Kano state governor.

The APC chieftain noted that nothing is comparable to the joy of a father witnessing the marriage ceremony of his child.

According to a statement release from his media office and made available to Mega Icon Magazine, Olaniyan described the union as one that is bound to not only bring both families together but further cement the cordial relationship that has always existed between the North and the South western Nigeria.

The gubernatorial hopeful further added that Governor Ajimobi has not restricted his excellent knack for achievements to public service but a trait he has also successfully replicated in his private life, which he remarked as very commendable.

The former Oyo State Road Maintenance Agency boss and erstwhile Permanent Secretary in the Oyo State Civil Service prayed that God will grant the couples happiness and joy in the days to come, to be the cord that binds the marriage and makes it secure.

While wishing them a blissful married life, the Igboho born politician also prayed that God will grant the parents of the bride and groom long life and good health, noting that as they have witness the marriage of their son and daughter so will they also see that of their grand children.

‘Lebanese Ambassador did not storm out of the Conference room’-  House of Reps’ Diaspora Committee

Published

on

The Chairperson, House of Representatives’ Committee on Diaspora Affairs, Hon. Tolulope Akande-Sadipe on Friday said the informal meeting held with the Lebanese Ambassador to Nigeria, Diab Houssam yesterday was cordial, very constructive and set the stage for more collaboration, adding that the perceived walk-out was misconstrued.

 

The Ambassador, Diab Houssam was said to have arrived at the meeting venue around 11:00 am, but met journalists and some other government officials, including the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Zubairu Dada.

 

The chairperson said that the story circulating as to the Lebanese’s Ambassador storming out of the room was wrongfully presented. An executive session was not clearly presented to him by the foreign affairs Liaison officer and he stepped out of the meeting room not slamming any doors, to wait in the hallway till journalists were excused for the executive session.

 

In Hon. Akande-Sadipe’s words, “It was a misunderstanding; it was meant to be an informal meeting and the ambassador was not aware that even when we have our informal meetings it is documented. Because of the law of diplomacy, he wasn’t expecting to have media there and it was immediately resolved that it was going to be an ‘executive session’. The minister apologised on behalf of foreign affairs and the executive session commenced with all in attendance. Under Vienna convention an Ambassador cannot be summoned to a committee hearing and the initial presence of the media made it seem otherwise”.

She further said, “it was an informal meeting and the ambassador with his interest for long standing cordial relationship between Nigeria and Lebanon joined us to forge a continued progressive association and solutions to the issue of Temitope Ariwolo and the menace of human traficking

 

She appreciated journalists for their coverage, but enjoined them to avoid sensational headlines that are counter-productive.

 

She said, “Some of the headlines were clear distortion of the reality of what happened.”
“The session commenced and ended on a very cordial note, with a resolution to continue efforts to ensure that the long-standing positive relationship between the two nations continues, a stronger collaboration and a stronger resolve and commitment to end human trafficking.”
