Prof Yemi OSINBAJO, The Man We Need By 2023



Every Nigerian wants A Nation where things work smoothly without tribal or religious sentiment; discrimination of any kind; favoritism; etc
We All desire A Better Nigeria of seamless Civil Service operations and engagements where, All benefit from The Central Government. A Nigeria which would become An Institution unbreakable of which we can All boldly say of that, NIGERIA IS WORKING; GOD BLESS NIGERIA, FOR I AM A NIGERIAN.

President Muhammad BUHARI – PMB having extensively studied and found esteemed quality of A PLANNER & DOER in Prof Yemi OSINBAJO – PYO appointed him to Chairman Economic Sustainable Committee, ESC. The ESC worked out a document National Economic Sustainability Plans, NESP which contain Solar Power Naija; MSME Survival Fund; 774000 Jobs; National Youth Investment Fund – NYIF; etc and, PMB on reading through the documents provided NGN 2.3 Trillion to released in tranches to fund the NESP put up by PYO and ESC.

PYO and ESC defragmentized NESP components giving some to MDAs of FGN (Federal Government of Nigeria) in his Humanist nature to reach or touch every Nigerian not minding the nook or cranny.

MSME Survival Fund
It is broken down into:
1) Grants to Artisans (Plumbers, Electricians, etc) and Transporters (Okada & Keke Napep Riders, Private or Public, Uber or Bolt Drivers, etc)
2) Formalization Support
3) Payroll Support Scheme
4) Guaranteed Offtake Scheme
5) One-time MSME Grant



PYO and ESC moved steps ahead to beat bottlenecks in the Application; Documentation and; Disbursement Processes by creating both ONLINE and OFFLINE Platforms for registration and engagements, What A Humanist !?!

Statistics has it that:
1) Grants to Artisans & Transporters: Had reached 265,425 beneficiaries
2) Formalization Support : Free registration of SMEs with Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC has 252,000 SMEs captured already overshooting the target
3) Payroll Support Scheme: Assistance given to Employers of labour (Employees) to pay both Employers and Employees 3 months freebies of N50,000 and N30,000 respectively. 319,755 beneficiaries had been recorded
4) Guaranteed Offtake Scheme: Products and Produces of producers and farmers would be bought by FGN at a good price. Enrollment is on and 100,000 beneficiaries are targeted
5) One-time MSME Grant: SME Owners would be gifted N50,000 to help their businesses. Enrollment is on and 100,000 beneficiaries are targeted.

The MSME Survival Fund component of NESP is so designed that PAYMENTS are made DIRECTLY into Individual Bank Accounts with the aid of BVN (Bank Verification Number), which automatically mean that, IF YOU HAVE BENEFITED FROM ONE OF IT, YOU CAN’T SHORTCHANGE OTHERS nor BENEFIT FROM THE OTHER COMPONENT. This creates ample space for many to benefit from the scheme.

To this end, many WOMEN, YOUTHS and LEADERS (in various climes) had benefited from FGN Program “MSME Survival Fund” designed and implemented by Prof Yemi OSINBAJO, PYO and ESC.

It is but ONLY a man that knows and understands that could have made THIS happen.

If PYO led ESC under the able leadership of President M. BUHARI could put it out straight to All Nigerians in the nooks and crannies they are resident in that, A NIGERIA WHERE THINGS WORK SEAMLESSLY WITHOUT FAVORITISM IS POSSIBLE with MSME Survival Fund component of NESP, don’t you feel he is “The Best Fit” ?

God Bless Nigeria
God Bless PMB
God Bless PYO (and ESC)
God Bless You & Me
God Bless OGO

NIGERIA VISION – PROF. YEMI OSINBAJO IS THE ANSWER



There are series of agitations concerning who will be the next president of Nigeria after the tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Why monitoring the views of some interest groups moving from one state to the others campaigning or creating awareness for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Fayemi, Amaechi etc to take over the mantle of leadership from the incumbent they forget to see Nigeria beyond their capacity.

I have a contrary opinion, at first I wanted to be silent on this issue but my instinct and conscience telling me to look at NIGERIA beyond Asiwaju, Fayemi, Amaechi, El Rufai etc visions, the only man for the job is Prof.YEMI OSINBAJO.

Haa, some people might say why did, Prof.Yemi Osinbajo is a man of many parts, in the legal circle, religion and he knows the mechanism of the government being a sitting vice president.

Prof.Yemi Osinbajo is the only uniting force who can hold Nigeria from breaking away. He has seen it all and he will be giving his best to restore the glory of our dear country.

Lastly, I want our youths, elites, civil society organization and traditional rulers to have a second thoughts concerning the project ahead of us. We should rally round Prof. YEMI Osinbajo to become our next president.

Hours put into work, doesn’t makes you an expert in any field – Ondo SSG



Becoming an expert in any field is not only a function of hours put into work, it is the deliberate setting of micro realistic goals per time. Once you complete and master the micro-skill, you move on to the next micro skill.

“Repeat this till you gain mastery”

The Secretary to Ondo State Government, SSG, Mrs Oladunni Odu, gave this assertion on Tuesday 30th March, 2021 during the 3rd Edition of P-Square Event Empire submit, titled “Moving to Mastery”, held at P-Square Empire, Adegbola Akure.

The Ondo first female SSG, noted that when we talk about mastery, one of the first things that come to mind is the eradication of mediocrity or state of being an authority in a highly competitive world, the need to gain mastery in whatever field of choice cannot be overemphasized

According her, “growth requires stepping into the unknown. Sometimes, it will mean facing uncomfortable situation , both in work and in life. You have to push yourself”.

“Only when you face challenges will your mental faculties be called upon and grow to new lengths. Leaving one’s comfort zone in this context is not synonymous with doing the extraordinary. It is about stretching your comfort zone one step at a time”.

“In addition, one of the ways to improve at anything and eradicate mediocrity is to identify what one is doing wrongly. This can be done by regular self-appraisal and seeking feedback from experienced people and mentors”. Added that one must learn to work even when it is least convenient.



Odu admonished that, the importance of finding time to rest cannot be gainsaid. Study reveals that when the time for deliberate practise is more than two hours per day, the benefits start to decline. It it therefore, important to know when to restore one’s energy with sleep and a healthy diet.

The Ondo SSG who described the convener of the Summit, Mrs. Olayinka Michael as a focus and hard-working woman congratulated her for the unique and educative summit. Which she said was a form of giving back to the society.

“I am indeed proud of you and your effort. You are a demonstration of today’s topic “Moving to Mastery” this is a symbolic of yourself, she applauded.

Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, has commiserated with the market women and family of late Iyaloja General of the state, Chief (Mrs) Akinfemiwa Iwalola, who died last Thursday at the age of 72 years.

Governor Akeredolu said the invaluable efforts, supports and cooperation of the late Iyaloja in rallying market women for the welfare of traders and growth of commerce in the state cannot be forgotten in a hurry.

“Her love for our administration was loud. Her deep passion and interest for the development of the state and sustainability of good governance, particularly as it affects the women folk, mostly traders, were endearing.”

The Governor, who described the late Iyaloja as a woman of honour, said she was a committed market women leader who spent her life in the service to humanity.

“Under her reign as the Iyaloja of the State, she preached loyalty, dedication and total commitment to the issues that affect the progress and development of the state. Her desire to contribute to the economy of the state was fervent. She was a market leader of repute and worthy mother in all ramifications.”

While noting that the market women and men she served selflessly during her lifetime would miss her dearly, Governor Akeredolu described Mrs. Akinfemiwa’s death as a huge loss to the state, especially at this time when she should be around to provide the much needed leadership for the market women in the state.

Arakunrin Akeredolu while urging the immediate family of the deceased, friends and market women in the state to take solace in her good deeds, prayed to God to grant her eternal rest.

OAUSTECH holds first inaugural lecture




The first inaugural lecture of the Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology (OAUSTECH) will hold today.
This was disclosed by the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof Robert Sunday Ogunduyile during a press briefing to announce the lecture.


The lecture according to him would be delivered by Prof. Olakunle David Teniola, one of the first two professors produced by the university about a decade ago, titled: “Invisible Soldiers and Fermentation – Impact on Food Security and Industrialization”.


The VC, while speaking with newsmen noted that the university has achieved a lot with the support of the governor and efforts of the management and governing council.


“Today, the university has graduated five sets of students. And if not for the dreaded covid-19 pandemic that shook the whole world in 2019, the sixth set would have completed their programmes by now.


“And the university can boast of over (20) first class graduates, with over (206) in the second class upper category. They were not trained to be job seekers, but job creators and employers of labour. All these we were able to achieve with the support of the state government.” Prof. Ogunduyile said.


The Vice Chancellor identified paucity of fund, uncompleted and prolonged hostel building project by OSOPADEC and NDDC, uncompleted building projects such as School of Science, School of ICT and low response from philanthropists and donors among others as part of challenges facing the institution.
He, therefore solicited for the help of the good people of Ondo State, philanthropists, donors in moving OAUSTECH to a greater heights.


Olakunle David Temiola, a Professor of Industrial Microbiology, who is also the inaugural lecturer said the lecture would impact so much on the audience, “since I am going to talk on how we can reduce unemployment in our land.”


The inaugural lecturer who is also the Dean of the School of Science, said the lecture would also talk about fermented food processes, the impact on people, how it can be used to curb poverty by creating employment even in Industrialization.

Teenager stab brother to death


An 18 year-old-girl, Idowu Biletiri, has been reportedly stabbed her elder brother, Kehinde Biletiri, to death at Igbokoda in Ilaje Local Government Area of Ondo State.

According to an eye witness who spoke with our reporter, said that Idowu allegedly killed her brother after he had questioned her for passing a number of nights outside their family residence.

The incident which happened at Celestial parish 1, in Igbokoda, was learnt that the suspect returned home after she had spent some days outside, and her deceased brother queried her, seeking to know where she had been since she left home.

The suspect, instead of answering her brother, reportedly went into the kitchen, took a knife and stabbed her brother which led to his death.

It was learnt that the suspect and her deceased brother were the only ones at home when the incident happened.

The state Police Command’s spokesman, ASP Tee Leo-Ikoro, said the incident had not been reported officially to the command.

Leo-Ikoro said the case was rather reported to the Ondo State Security Network code-named Amotekun Corps.

“I can confirm that the incident occurred but it was reported to Amotekun Corps and they are in charge of the case now and until it is reported to the police, we cannot carry out any investigation,” PPRO said.
