Stop playing politics with Coronavirus palliatives,there’s hunger in the land – Paul Obazele to FG, Politicains

Published

One of the top names in the nation’s film industry and the President of Legends of Nollywood, Mr. Paul Obazele has warned Nigerian the federal government and Nigerian politicians about politicizing the Coronavirus pandemic palliatives meant for the poorest of the poor in the land.

Obazele who has also been a strong voice of the oppressed and the voiceless in the Nigerian society right from the beginning of his acting career till now made the charge in a video that has now gone viral.

According to him, it’s saddening to hear and see various viral videos of the Nigerian people lamenting that the relief materials purportedly being shared by governments at all levels and some politicians are not filtering down to the poor who are really in need of it.

He further adds that it beggars belief that the government is saying there’s no formula or method to reach out to the needy in this “war-like” situation.

He also proffered a workable solution for the distribution of food and other palliatives to the generality of poor Nigerians who are now in dire need of assistance from the government. According to Ireportnews sources, the visibly angry top Nollywood actor and producer has donated well over five hundred thousand worth of food items,drinks and recharge cards to the needy and vulnerable around him and he’s planning to do more.

Big Brother Naija reality star and actress, Bisola Aiyeola gets candid on her refusal to buy her 15-year-old daughter a phone despite the criticism she faces regarding her parenting choices.

In a recent episode of “Mums Next Door” with Maria Chike, Bisola disclosed that she has been judged for not allowing her 15-year-old daughter to have a phone until she turns 16.

Despite facing criticism, Bisola stands by her decision, noting that her daughter can access a laptop for schoolwork and communicate with friends via Zoom.

She also recounted discovering her daughter had created a smart chat account on her laptop, which led to extending the phone ban by another year.

She said: “Yes, I have been judged by my parenting skills. So, my daughter turned 15 this year and still doesn’t have a phone. I have been pretty strict with that part of her life, and she begged. I told her she wouldn’t have a phone till she was 16, so she still had one more year to go. And people have been asking me, like, what if there is an emergency? Wouldn’t she be behind her pairs and all, but she has a laptop for school work? If her friends need to talk to her, they can call her on Zoom. Sometimes, people feel like I am overdoing it, or I am trying to be overprotective, and I am like, well, that’s your business.

“There was a time I found out she opened a smart chat account on a laptop, and I was like, how? I disciplined her, which made me extend her phone usage by a year because she was supposed to get it this year at 15.”

Davido has reacted to the claim by Sophia Momodu, the mother of his daughter, that he should not be granted joint custody of their daughter, Imade.

Momodu had argued: “The Applicant is an artist who always travels around the world as mandated by his career and cannot possibly be with our daughter at crucial times. The Applicant is married to another woman, and they live together. The proper upbringing of our daughter by another cannot be guaranteed.

“The fact that the Applicant lost his son in his house in rather unfortunate and questionable circumstances shows that our daughter cannot be placed in the custody of the Applicant.”

Reacting in a post on his official X page, Davido said: “You constantly bringing up the death of my child at any point you can to just remind us of this tragedy that haunts us every day of our lives.

“Imade will grow up to see that I fought for her. As for now, you can have her.

“P.S.: She won’t be a child forever. Enjoy Imade Aurora Adeleke! Your father loves you!”
