Air Force plane crash: Sen Olujimi sad about Olawumi’s death, other personnel, demand probe – Daily Post Nigeria

The Senator representing Ekiti South at the National Assembly, Chief Biodun Olujimi has expressed shock and grief over the death of a Flight Sergeant, Olasunkanmi Olawumi and other six Nigerian Air Force personnel on board the crashed military aircraft.

Federal Commissioner in CCB, Ehiozuwa Johnson Agbonayinma disclosed this on Monday while speaking with journalists in Abuja.

Agbonayinma, who heads a subcommittee investigating the case, said it is not a witchhunt.

According to media reports, Akapabio allegedly offered bribe to the CCB officials to give a “soft landing” to Sole Administrator of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Mr Efiong Okon Akwa over discrepancies in his asset declaration form.

“We have been given a mandate by the bureau to investigate the allegation against some officials of CCB that we saw on social media. Let me be specific, one Mr Jackson Ude twitted, and it went viral, that money was given to some officials of CCB by Akpabio. Because of that, a committee to investigate the allegation was set up, with myself as the chairman,” he said.

“The committee is not to witch-hunt anyone but to do its job of defending the constitution of Nigeria.

“We invited Akpabio, who in his wisdom, came to give his side of the story. At the moment, we cannot pass judgement as the investigation is still in progress. All the accused parties remain innocent until the investigation is over,” he added.

South East Governors’ Forum, on Monday waded into the political clash between the governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma and former governor, Senator Rochas Okorocha.

Recall that governor Uzodinma was said to have ordered Okorocha’s arrest for unsealing Royal Palm Estate.

The South-east governors in a statement signed by their chairman and Governor of Ebonyi State, Chief David Umahi, assured the two political leaders of Imo State- Uzodinma and Okorocha of their preparedness to settle the disputes internally, instead of washing their dirty linen in the public.

The statement, which was forwarded to DAILY POST by the Special Adviser to governor Umahi on Media, Francis Nwaze reads in part: “The South-east Governors’ Forum sues for peace between governor Hope Uzodimma and former governor of Imo State Rochas Okorocha.

“Southeast Governors’ Forum has decided to wade into the impasse ensuing between Governor Hope Uzodimma and the former Governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha.”

Governor Umahi said he had already made contacts with Uzodinma and Okorocha and asked them to cease fire, adding that the parties to the dispute had agreed for a truce.

The Forum further explained that the leaders of the Southeast were capable of settling their disputes internally instead of washing their linen in the public.

“We call for calm among the supporters of the two political heavyweights to ensure a timely and amicable resolution of the disagreement within the shortest possible time.

“We call on people of Imo State and the South East Zone to go about their normal businesses and shun provocative statements until normalcy is completely restored between the former Governor and his successor,” the forum stated.

How We Met

By the couple, Sinmi and Tobi

Tobi: The first time I saw her was at Covenant University. I was in 400 level, she was in 100, and it was just a brief sighting. She was talking to my friend, and I don’t think she noticed me at that time. I didn’t think anything of it. Maybe if I had looked a little longer, I would have realized that it was my future wife, but it’s okay I got to find that out later.

Sinmi (interjecting): Ahan, don’t scatter this story o.

Tobi (playfully): Excuse me, this is my turn.

Tobi (continues): Anyway, Fast forward a few years to 2016. I was living in Abuja and organized a small faith-based fellowship there called The gathering. Sinmi was in Abuja for her Aunty’s wedding, and one of her friends had invited her to the fellowship. When she walked in, it was as if this bright light had just shone in the room. But you know I had to focus on the word…

Sinmi (doing the famous Yoruba scowl): Hmmm…

Tobi (still smiling): I’m serious! But yeah, she was seeing someone at that time, so nothing was really going to happen. After fellowship that day, we spoke a couple of times because she wanted to start her own fellowship in Ibadan, where she served. I helped her with some tips, but then we didn’t speak much after that.
Two years later, I messaged her that I had moved to Lagos – she was also living in Lagos by then. That’s when she started sliding into my DMs, saying we should meet up.

Sinmi (Laughs): Please, I didn’t slide into anyone’s DMs. When I first saw him at the fellowship, I thought, “Okay… this is guy seems cool”, despite his floral shirt (I still don’t understand Tobi’s taste for those things)

Tobi (rolling his eyes): Okay

Sinmi continues: But as Tobi mentioned, I was seeing someone, so I wasn’t thinking of him in that way, but I knew he was a great person and someone I wanted to be friends with. I even tried setting him up with the friend that invited me.

So 2 years later, in 2018, I decided that I wanted to continue the fellowship I started in Ibadan in Lagos. Before that, my friend had let me know that he had moved to Lagos. I just thought, ‘it’s true, that Tobi guy said he wanted to start a fellowship here, let me message him”. That’s when I messaged him with the typical banter: ‘hey, you’re in Lagos, we should meet up sometime!’ You know all those meetups that you never actually plan to happen.

Tobi (slapping the back of one hand on the other palm): As far as I’m concerned, there’s a ring on your finger, so form all you want.

Sinmi (laughs): He hadn’t started the fellowship yet when I messaged, so we decided to tag-team on it. He called me a few weeks later, and we spoke for 2hrs just gisting, and I never have long phone calls. I found myself wanting to talk again because we had such a good conversation. He called two days after (that leave 1-day space trick, he thinks he’s slick 😅), and again we talked for hours.

Although our calls meant for planning the fellowship turned to gist sessions, we eventually had it. On our way to the first meeting, I remember we were joking around, competing for who would get there first. Still, when I got there, I found it hard to reconcile this person I had spent hours talking to on the phone with the one in front of me.

Tobi: What she means is, she was shy. 😅

Sinmi: No, I wasn’t! But a few days after the fellowship, I invited him out with my friends, and afterwards, he dropped me off at my friend’s place. I think it was when we said bye that I realized I had started to catch some feelings. Ah, Tobi, I’ve tried for you. Do you remember that time I brought you a burger from Ilupeju?!

Tobi: Yeah! you came from your office in Ilupeju and brought it to mine in Lekki, and I just knew I had found my wife! (Tobi laughs)

The Beginning of Forever:

Tobi: One day, we agreed to meet up and ended up having a 12 hr date. We went for breakfast, went to watch a movie and then went to an arcade. After that day, we just knew that something was there, but it wasn’t official yet. However, I knew that she was the one. I had already decided a few years back that I wasn’t going to date anyone I wasn’t sure I would marry. So I prayed about it, and although God did not necessarily tell me, “Yes Tobi, thou hast found thine, bride,” I had peace in my heart about it, so that’s how I knew. So one day after work, I drove over to her office to ask her out. She told me she had to think about it, but she already knew jor, all this was shakara.

Sinmi: I mean, I knew we were going to date. I just wasn’t sure when. I had to check my spirit. God had already given me so many confirmations that he was the one, but I prayed about it and found peace. But when he first asked, I wasn’t sure if I was going to yes that month or the next or…

Tobi: Ahan, can you imagine? Anyway, that’s how it all started, then a little over a year after, I proposed, and that was it! One of the reasons I was, and still am, so sure about this relationship is how heavily God was involved, every step of the way.

Sinmi: Yeah, me too. We are SIMply meant TO BE.
