The Man of God cum Politician said some persons brought him a 2015

“I want to see good governance. I want to see discipline. I want to
see equitable distribution of resources. I want to see the poor being
educated. I want to see a nation that works. I don’t want to be a local
champion in a city of the blind. I am not in need of a 2015 model of
Rolls-Royce which was presented to me as a gift.” He began
And then he went on to explain “I was sitting at home one day and

Oba Rilwan who was the Assistant Inspector General of Police before
he retired in 2002, was crowned King of Lagos on May 23, 2003.
In a new interview with Sunday Sun, the Oba who met his first wife 50 years ago explained in details why no man sticks with one woman.
“You see, there is no handsome, rich, young man who does not like
women. That a man likes a woman is different from a man who cannot do

Hayley Haynes was born without a womb, ovaries or fallopian tubes, Daily Mirror reports.
‘When they told me I had no womb, I was so confused I felt sick. My
biggest fear was never having children,’ she told the Daily Mirror.
