-Ololade Morenike Adewunmi (Lions Club District 404B First Lady)

It must have been during the winter of 2004 when the retiring partners of KPMG who are still awaiting their gratuity and pension converged at the LanesboroughHotel in Knightsbridge, London to celebrate several decades of genuine friendship, mutual respect, and confidence in each other’s integrity.  At lunchtime, we proceeded to the hotel’s magnificent Apsleys restaurant. To quote one of the guests: “They know how to receive people. The welcome was delivered along with excellent pralines and champagne.”

Security Agencies still hunting for producers of concocted AMSTEL MALTA VIDEO


Following the recent discovery of serial attempts to defame Amstel Malta, through concocted video productions, the nation’s security agencies have begun a massive cyber hunt for the brains behind the act.

In August 2016, Amstel Malta, the premium, low sugar formulated malt drink from the stable of Nigerian Breweries, launched a new credential campaign #WhyAddMore. Shortly after the campaign, a picture went viral that a fake version of the Amstel Malta is in circulation. This was because the new packaging wore the new NIS logo while the old packaging had the old NIS logo of the Standard Organisation of Nigeria. 

Soon after this, the Nigerian consumers were greeted with another offensive video of an Amstel Malta can drink allegedly containing a strange object. A faceless consumer recorded an alleged contaminated drink and circulated it on social media.

The company thereafter reported the defamation attempt to the security agencies for further investigation.

Buhari & the RCN affair


By Louis Odion, FNGE 

For once, President Buhari on Monday chose to act with a despatch and clarity rarely seen in his tenancy at Aso Rock in the last twenty months. The ink of the reports of the forced resignation of Pastor Enoch Adeboye, arguably the dean of Pentecostal district of the nation's Christian community, had barely dried before someone was made to lose his job in Abuja.
Not only was the voluble Executive Secretary of the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria, Jim Obaze, summarily given the boot, his controversial Corporate Governance Code has been suspended as well.

2016: When tears flowed freely at the death of the rich, wealthy and famous




By Paul Ukpabio
 
When these highly placed public figures died in 2016, the tears were uncontrollable. In many ways, these personalities were larger than life. They had become relevant in their chosen fields to the society, and out of their filled pockets, they influenced the lives of people around them and even people very far away from them.

When they died, tributes poured freely and even for some of them, royal trumpets sounded and entire society communities, even nations played major roles in their ceremonial rites of transition.
Like William Shakespeare of blessed memory observed in great wisdom, that the wealthy rich depart the earth with blazing noise.

Below are some of those who left in that blazing noise in 2016.
