Lagos belongs to Benin Empire not Yorubaland – Oba Akiolu

The dust has finally settled after years of controversies & heated arguments who the real owners of present day Lagos are, the whole of Western Nigeria and the East of the Niger down to the Nigerian south Atlantic Coast.
The Oba of Lagos, His Royal Highness, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, has finally told the world via a historical narrative and background the real owners of Nigeria’s economic capital city of Lagos and parts of neigbouring Benin Republic.
Lagos, he said, belongs to the Great Benin Kingdom and has never been part of Yoruba land.
This was contained in a statement issued and signed by the Lagos Monarch which was released from his palace.

#Nigeria 🇳🇬 es el gigante africano en temas de población y PIB.
El hombre más rico del continente africano es nigeriano: Aliko Dangote. Su fortuna (US$14 mil millones) supera el PIB el naciones como Namibia, Moldavia, Chad o Guyana. ImageImage
Muchos crecimos con que la capital nigeriana 🇳🇬 era #Lagos (/leigos/ como lo pronuncian localmente).

Sin embargo, desde 1991, Abuya es la capital nacional.

Aún así, Lagos se mantiene como el centro financiero, productivo y administrativo del país. ImageImage

A history lesson for the people of #Lagos, as taught by Oba Rilwan Akiolu, about how Lagos came to be. Pay attention!
Oba Akiolu: “Modern day Lagos was founded by Prince Ado, the son of the Oba of Benin, Prince Ado was the first Oba of Lagos, the son of the Bini King, Prince Ado, named the town Eko until the Portuguese explorer Ruy de Segueira changed the Maritime town to Lagos.”
Read the FULL statement of Oba Akiolu here ⬇️. No one should argue, ever again, that the Edo people founded Lagos. So when I am told, by SOME so-called Lagosians, to “go back to Edo State”, because I support @PeterObi, my soon-to-be president, y’all know where to go! 🖕🏾😂

"HISTORY of the term "No Man's Land" tag on LAGOS".

A THREAD from the excerpt below 👇

At the same I953 conference, Nigerian delegates again became painfully aware of the
serious political differences which tended to mar the evolution of harmony between various sections. The controversy over Lagos, Nigeria's capital and leading commercial centre, caused more bitterness in I953 than it had in 1950. During the 1950 and 1953 conferences which
discussed this issue, delegates from the Eastern Region made it clear that they regarded Lagos as a 'no-man's land'.
The Western delegates, however, regarded Lagos as a Yorùbá town which they wanted to administer on their own terms. During the 1950 General Conference, the

Just had a chat with former @NGSuperEagles @VfB_int @VfLWolfsburg_EN & @HansaRostock forward @akpoborie, about Monday’s free surgeries in #Ozoro, Delta State, #Nigeria, by the team of doctors from Belgian NGO reVIVE, whom he brought to help the sick, who can’t afford treatment. Image
.@akpoborie: “I watched some of the surgeries on Monday. It was really an experience. One young boy got rid of a hernia. It was good to see him him cured. I was really touched by that,” he said. ImageImage
He goes on: “There are so many people to help. And the sad thing is that as much as the doctors are able to do, we can’t help everyone. We had already closed the case list, when 2 more children came with their mum. We told them the list had closed…

Recommended Smartphone Charging Habits
- Avoid charging your phone overnight. When your phone remains at full charge for a prolonged period of time, it can affect your battery's health. Adaptive charging is recommended if you do need to charge your phone overnight, that's if your phone supports it....
If not, charge your phone during the day, or whenever you can unplug your charger when your battery is full.

So Ohaneze Ndigbo leaders visited Gov Sanwoolu, advised all to ignore rumours of IPOB or Unknown Gunmen plotting to attack #Lagos soon

I hope Security Forces & LASG re-strategize on security measures to prevent possible attack while Lagosians are to help with credible intel
What effort have been put in place by Ohaneze Ndigbo to stop the ongoing killings in the South East region? Laughable that same group are the one offering Lagosians sakamaje unsolicited advise. That advisory should be ignored while LASG secure #Lagos from the ‘Unknown Gunmen’.
Recently I visited #Lagos & I saw high level of damage/destruction done during the EndSARS crisis. Intelligence driven measure can foil attempts to cause havoc again, as we hope affliction won’t arise for the second time. Govt & Citizens have key roles to play on security matters

In 2019, I invested in a property that has now appreciated by almost £40,000 (N26M) in just 2 years. Currently, I am in talks with a very good friend of mine about buying another rental property (a flat) worth £175,000 in an area populated by students.
For upwardly mobile professionals, real estate is generally a great investment option. It can help generate passive income on a yearly basis. It can also be a fantastic long-term investment if you buy in a great location and the value increases overtime like mine has done.
Investing in real estate can help you build wealth. You can make profit through rental income (people will always need a place to live) and appreciation of the value of the property.

The agenda of Klaus Schwab's Global Shapers is the acceleration of global corporate control to a level we can barely imagine, the imposition of a full-on techno-tyranny.…

We took a closer look at the WEF's Global Shapers in #London and found that one heads a “a private philanthropy focused on systemic change” seeking “integrated solutions that follow children along the life course”.

It intends to “take risks where the potential pay-off is big” and adds: “We know that the returns on smart investments in areas such as children’s early development and adolescent girls are especially high”.

Akwa Ibom Gov @MrUdomEmmanuel, SSG in Multi-Billion Naira Scandal

The House of Assembly approved N2.5bn for the maintenance of the state aircraft but the SSG’s office spent N5.04bn on the maintenance of one aircraft, which is used exclusively by the Gov.
THE Akwa Ibom State Govt this year released the Account General’s annual report and audited financial statements for 2019. A thorough analysis of the report reveals that the offices of the Gov & SSG made several questionable and extra-budgetary expenses in 2019. cc. @EditiEffiong
These bizarre expenses were incurred on cars, aircraft maintenance, fuel, government special projects and governor’s hospitality exceed N10 billion.
