Benue Links Akwanga Crash Survivor, Ufuoma Peace Oghenerume, to be Called to the Nigerian Bar -By: Ukan Kurugh Ukan

Destiny, it is said cannot be denied and this is being evidenced in the life of Miss Ufuoma Peace Oghenerume. Being one of the two persons who survived the Benue Links tragedy that claimed over a dozen lives months ago at the Nasarawa Eggon hills, Ufuoma endured excruciating pains in theatre and is now glued to a wheelchair to perfect her healing.

She was in transit to Makurdi to undertake her final clearance at Benue State University so as to obtain her certificate for screening for her call to Bar before the tragedy occurred. But God had destined her to become a lawyer and even the accident could not stop it as she miraculously survived.

She would graciously participate in the Call to Bar ceremonies between 26 and 28 November and become Solicitor and Advocate of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.

Let us remember her in our prayers.

Ufuoma Peace Oghenerume

Congratulations Learned Counsel

The federal high in Abuja throws the case of Bukola Dakolo with Biodun Fatiyinbo out.

The Abuja high Court 12 sitting at Bwari dismissed the case filed by Busola Dakolo and exonerated Fatoyinbo.

This came after Fatoyinbo filed an Objection and an affidavit at the Court reiterating that Busola’s statements were false and concocted to embarrass, scandalise and ridicule Fatoyinbo. He averred that from the inception she sought the attention of the media and press, and brought the civil action even while the Police investigation was ongoing. Her false claim were stale and an abuse of judicial process.
The court held that the matter amounts to injustice, and an abuse of judicial process and held that the case is purely sentimental, empty. The court awarded costs of N1,000,000 against Busola Dakolo and held that it would have been 10 times more but resisted it because there are women with legitimate claims who may approach the court. The Court held that the case carries more of cruelty in them than justice.

I did not agree with Naira-mally on having big booty is better than having a Masters degree- Dolapo

Chief Superintendent of Police, Dolapo Badmus has weighed in on Naira Marley’s controversial statement that “having big booty is better than having a Masters degree”.

Reacting to it, CSP Dolapo Badmus wrote:

So having a big body part is now better than having Educational or vocational qualifications?(like seriously?) I still cant get over this! I’m saying it again, we need to restore sanity to our system and stop tolerating public nuisance!

Its mediocracy for anyone to applaud an obviously delinquent and unproductive dead duck (deemed a bad influence) hiding under the guise of making music, obnoxious music for that matter.

My advice to younger ones: let no one confuse you. To have a good body part is great…….but to have educational or vocational qualification is more important! Infact its non negotiable! Your body part cannot give you sustainable existence only good educational or vocational qualification will do…be guided

My take on this issue is. One man food is another man’s poison. The reason behind Naira-mally’s theory and Dolapo’s theory is best known to them.
