More details on the frosty relationship between former Lagos governorship candidate and politician, Babatunde Gbadamosi and his ex wife, Sade Balogun have emerged.

While Gbadamosi has been all over the place crying foul and claiming part ownership of Amen Estate, a Highbrow Estate in Lagos, Sade who is Chief Executive Officer of the holding company, Redbricks Home International Limited, has renounced her former husband and disclosed that he was nothing more than a mere sleeping partner who did not have a single financial commitment in the business and had since voluntarily resigned from his position as a director of the company.


Trouble started brewing between the duo when Babatunde Gbadamosi met and married the London based daughter of a top politician, Yinka Balogun, now Yinka Balogun Gbadamosi.


While Gbadamosi has been putting out statements warning clients not to do business with Redbricks Homes, his ex wife, Sade released a statement proving that the politician willingly resigned in the presence of his lawyer and a witness, with proof of his resignation letter.


The statement which was released in top national dailies reads:

PUBLIC NOTICE TO ALL INVESTORS AND POTENTIAL INVESTORS

The attention of the Management of Redbrick Homes International Ltd, developers of Amen Estate phase 1, phase 2 and phase 3, has been drawn to certain materials in circulation to the effect that Mr Babatunde Olalere Gbadamosi is associated with Redbrick Homes International Ltd and its real estate projects.

For the avoidance of doubt, once upon a time, Mr Gbadamosi, a full time Politician, used to be a sleeping partner/shareholder without any financial investment and one of the Directors of Redbrick Homes International Ltd, but he has since voluntarily transferred, for consideration, the entirety of his shares in Redbrick Homes Intl Ltd and has also resigned his directorship of its Board since July 1, 2021.

The Board composition, shareholding structure and share capital of Redbrick Homes International Ltd has accordingly changed completely. Folasade Balogun
(formerly Folasade Gbadamosi) remains the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Redbrick Homes Intl Ltd, a position she has served in since the inception of the
company and under her leadership, Redbrick Homes Intl Ltd has continued to deliver quality service to its customers uninterrupted. These facts can easily be verified at
the Corporate Affairs Commission.

However, we are aware that Babatunde is challenging his own voluntary resignation, that was signed in front of two of his counsel, two of our counsel and a notary public, on the grounds that he signed under duress.

Our Lawyers, Babalakin & Co are dealing with this. The Suit No is: FHC/L/CS/742/2021 at the Federal High Court, Lagos before Justice A.O Faji.

For over 12 years, Redbrick Homes International Ltd have been one of the leading and most reliable posh properties provider in Nigeria. Our dedication and commitment to our cause remain unwavering, and you all can be rest assured that your satisfaction and the safety of your properties and investments will never cease to be our topmost priority now and always. Our doors are open, and we also
reassure you that acquiring lands and properties with us are not only completely safe and risk-free, it is also the choice thing to do.

We use this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to all our customers and potential customers for standing by us over the years and wish to reassure them even more, that we would not compromise on our excellent service that they have become accustomed to. Thank you.

Concerned society watchers are wondering why Gbadamosi is filled with so much bile, after hurting his ex wife so badly and why his new found wife has embarked on a smear campaign against her.

According to a resident of Amen Estate, home owners were very pleased when Gbadamosi was sent packing by Sade:
“This was a man who strutted the estate with so much arrogance and high handedness. He was always fighting with residents. There was a time a driver was waiting to pick up his boss and Gbadamosi began to raise hell because the driver packed on the road just outside the boss’ house.
He interfered in almost every home, would be quarrelling over sprinklers, people going about their normal life, jogging around the estate, as if they had no right. He was a menace that we are so happy is gone. Good riddance to bad rubbish”

Those in the know say Sade picked the former guber aspirant from ignominy and gave him a bearing through which he could even vie to be governor but he broke her heart and her trust:
“The best thing to happen to Sade is kicking out that man from her life.
He was a serial womaniser who even caused problems between a couple in that estate.
It’s so funny that he is the one now accusing her of infidelity when we all know how he ran after women, married and unmarried.
Do you know that this man was always going behind collecting ten percent money from contractors, behind Sade’s back?
One good thing though is that Sade was smart enough not to give him full control of the business, he would have wrecked it.
This is a man who would corner intermediary agents wanting to sell homes and tell them home owners must approach the company and the company must act as agent to sell any house within the estate. All he wanted was to corner the money.
He was a big man without cash.

Why else will a wife throw out a husband with his clothes and only one car? Director my foot!” Said another resident.

Many wonder why Sade has remained silent especially as the marriage between Tunde and Yinka was contracted when they were still legally married.
“Do you know she endured eight months of cyber bullying from that woman and kept quiet?
She should sue him for bigamy. The man is just a gold digger but she is considering the children, poor woman.” Said a family source.

Social media watchers are regaled with mudslinging directed at Sade by the new wife, Yinka Balogun Gbadamosi and wonder why a woman who came to snatch another woman’s husband is now the aggressor.
A keen observer noted that Sade has been the target of Yinka’s post for almost six months now:
“She behaves so foolishly, she thinks she has seen husband, she has forgotten that the cane used in beating the first wife is waiting for the second wife.
Gbadamosi is a smooth talker and liar who has simply latched on this new one for political and other gains, her own day will come…these London girls should start using their brains”.

Another source close to the family said,
“Obviously, Tunde is using Yinka to fight his ex.
Gbadamosi himself is not talking about any infidelity, it is Yinka who came to take another person’s husband who is talking.
As someone who has worked in government house, has properties to her name, she should be very careful herself. I learned she has moved into another Estate on the Island with her new husband, I hope she knows that he drove the new car close to Amen Estate just to show off?
This new woman who is obviously over exuberant thinking she has seen husband, should listen to the advice of her elders. A word is enough for the wise. A Gigolo is always a Gigolo.

“The truth of the matter is that, Yinka Balogun thought he was chairman of Amen Estate and probably still believes that lie.

Gbadamosi too was hoping to leverage on her dad’s position.

Gold digger met gold digger.” The source stressed further.

Giving more insight, sources close to both parties disclosed that Gbadamosi met his new wife Yinka Balogun on Facebook and got married to her on his wedding anniversary to Sade, which according to the source, is very sinister:
“Do you know Tunde and Yinka met on Facebook and coincidentally Yinka and Sade share same surname, Balogun.
As if there is something else behind the whole affair, Tunde chose his wedding anniversary to Sade to wed his new found lover.
Where we come from, we would say, you want to cancel one to replace another. God has been on Sade’s side because we learned that her ex husband is allegedly very fetish”.

As it stands now, it is obvious that the tumultuous business relationship between Babatunde Gbadamosi and Sade has broken down irretrievably and Gbadamosi has been kicked out of the business for good.

MATAN president enumerates benefit for stakeholders, how it will end injustices

National President of MATAN, Jamilu Abbas

***MATAN to bring informal sector into FG tax

The emergence of Market Traders Association of Nigeria (MATAN) which is the umbrella body for all trading associations is an answered prayer for all those who have been shortchanged by government officials in the distribution of parliatives and intervention funds, its National President honorable Jamilu Abbas has declared.
Speaking at its National Executive Council Meeting held in Abuja recently, he said MATAN is a trailblazing association that holds the magic wand to resolve most of the issues bedeviling the country as a result of the greed of some leaders.
He recalled the action of some Governors and political office holders during the COVID19 pandemic when palliatives meant to be distributed to the poorest of the poor were hoarded and kept away from them by some governors, lawmakers, local Government chairmen and so on.
According to him, they in the informal sector have decided to channel their own energy to forming the MATAN,
“That is why we decide to float a project, leading to the launch of the Integrated Market Revenue Management System (IMRMS).
He said MATAN is in Partnership with the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) to collect and remit Value Added Tax (VAT) from traders in marketplace, using the IMRMS platform.
According to him, the collaboration; known as the VAT Direct Initiative (VDI), is part of a push to widen the government’s tax base.
To that end he said, the FIRS has rolled out the implementation of the IMRMS, a purpose-built digital platform, to capture the informal sector, especially market traders in to the federal government’s tax net.
He said MATAN is the largest player in Nigeria’s market space with a membership of well over 40 million traders across the country.
“Under the arrangement, MATAN is expected to digitally enumerate its members, give them a digital identity and track their turnover so that VAT accrued is collected and remitted to the FIRS.
“Through this initiative, the FIRS will help tackle multiple taxation in the marketplace through partnership with security agencies to curb the activities of touts, miscreants and self-imposed tax collectors involved in illegal tax collection in Nigeria’s market spaces. ”
He said the solution is, MATAN is providing a platform that will go digital to bring all in the informal sector to become formal.
According to him, With the ongoing enumeration, each member will have his multi purpose Identity Cards which is called VDIIT
“So with the card, our agents will enumerate you as a trader, farmer, transporter or Artizan. We have analyzed it, the small Scale, the Medium Scale and the larger scale.
“Even if you are exempted from paying tax to government, you are not exempted from benefiting from services such as insurance, PENCOM, because when you fall ill, you will go to the hospital, when you have cases in your market places, the Lawyer is there to support you free of charge.
He said with the card, they are in partnership with government so if government wants to give palliative they don’t need to go through some one who will corner them for his personal use. They don’t need to go through any criminal or any offices.
He said President Tinubu is well informed of the Association because after enumeration, this is the only platform which the President will authorise for all banks to send government intervention funds to without passing through any criminal that has opportunity to occupy government position.
“Immediately we provided this platform, the State Governments, the joint tax board, invited us and we promised them that we are going to be paying their taxes, we are bringing our people to the tax net, so that if it is N1, on 10k, they will be contributing to government coffers.
“But when we make this contribution government must pay us back, the pay back is the tax relief, if I have children who want to go to school, through this card they can access free education.

Obi insists, food insecurity is a major threat to the Nation

The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 general election, Mr Peter Obi, has indicated that food insecurity is a major threat to the Nation.
The LP standard bearer who made the remarks in Ibadan when he visited the headquarters of the International Institute Tropical Agriculture (IITA), explained that solving the problem of food insecurity in Nigeria will help to eradicate hunger and combat food inflation.
IITA is an institute that engages in agricultural research for the development of sustainable and innovative farming practices aimed at solving the problem of hunger and poverty in the nation.

His personal assistant on media, Michael Jude Nwolisa in a statement he issued in Abuja on Monday quoted Obi to have charged the government to make agriculture top priority.
According to Obi, the worsening level of inflation in the country is occasioned by the obvious abandonment of agriculture resulting in food insecurity.

He expressed his appreciation to the management and staff of IITA for what he described as their very significant contributions to Nigeria’s agricultural sector, especially in ensuring higher agricultural productivity.
Obi encouraged them to do more by working more closely with local farmers and agricultural stakeholders to enhance farming practices and agricultural productivity.
This, Obi said, will help IITA to ensure that their research outcomes and innovations are effectively disseminated and adopted, leading to tangible improvements in the agricultural sector.

The LP presidential candidate maintained that agriculture remains a very critical sector in Nigeria’s economy and should not be neglected. “Our obvious neglect of agriculture is the cause of hunger and food insecurity, resulting in the high food inflation rate we have today,” he said.

“Lack of investment in agriculture, he argued, has resulted in the high level of hunger and poverty in the country today. In his words, “In the 2023 Global Hunger Index, Nigeria ranked 109th out of the 125 countries measured, showing a serious hunger level in the nation.
“Our food inflation rate is currently at 33%, signifying that more concerted efforts need to be made in moving our nation from consumption to production, in the agricultural sector.”

He further explained that aside from achieving food security, Nigeria could earn huge foreign exchange from agriculture.
“I have maintained consistently that Nigeria could earn more from agriculture than it presently earns from oil. I have also said that the biggest assets of our nation are the vast uncultivated lands in the North. “If we invest in agriculture and fully explore our fertile lands, we will not only end hunger and eradicate poverty but drive down inflation and earn huge amounts of foreign exchange through agricultural exports,” Obi said.

“Our mission remains to move Nigeria from consumption to production as this will help us to achieve the New and productive Nigeria of our dreams,” Obi concluded.

Following the Supreme Court ruling which upheld the election of Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State in the March 18, 2023 election, Protests have erupted in Lafia, the State capital.
The Lafia-Jos road has been completely blocked as the protesters lit bonfire to prevent travelers and other road users from passing.

It was gathered that motorists had to take alternative routes out of Lafia.

The streets of the capital city were overtaken by the protesters who were aggrieved with the Supreme Court Judgment

A group of elderly women and widows marched through the streets of Lafia, to protest the court’s decision

The state election petition tribunal had nullified Sule’s election and declared Ombugadu of the PDP the winner, but the appeal court later upurned the decision, leading to the final ruling by the Supreme Court.

Women groups have been at the forefront of the protests, leading to road blockades in various parts of the state capital, including the Lafia-Jos road.

This has disrupted traffic flow, forcing commuters to seek alternative routes. The unrest has prompted calls for an increased presence of security forces to restore calm in the area.

The protests have also had economic downturn, with shops, businesses, and schools in the state capital hastily closing their doors in response to the unfolding events.

The situation remains tensed as various groups continue to express their discontent following the court’s ruling.
