Anti-corruption fight not targeted at anyone – VP Osinbajo

Vice President Osinbajo says the anti corruption fight by the Buhari administration is not targeted at anyone in particular but rather, targeted at correcting the notion that stealing from the national treasury can be done with impunity. He said this at the funeral for the mother of Senator Mamora in Ogun state today August 8th
"It’s not about a probe of a past government, that’s not what this is about. We are talking about our future, we are saying that we must put in place a clear strategy going forward. Not just about ensuring that people are made to pay for looting the treasury, our system of justice must be fair to ensure that anybody who does anything that is wrong is brought to account. We can’t allow impunity to continue. So it’s not about the previous government, it’s about any form of impunity,” he said.

FFK's family disowns his three children with ex wife Yemisi Wada, questions their paternity

In a very lengthy piece released today, the family of Former Aviation minister, Olufemi Olu-Kayode stated that they have disowned his first three children named Tope who got married last week, Temi and Tuminimu, all born by his ex wife Yemisi Wada. A rep of the Fani-Kayode family, Felix Olawunmi, who wrote the piece, detailed the relationship of the former minister and his ex wife and why they have decided to disown the children. The piece below...
The piece titled: “Temitope Fani-Kayode’s blissful conjugal” published in Thisday of last week Saturday contained huge incorrect and misleading information. The motive, source and credibility of the information published are highly doubtful. Nigerians are urged to discountenance the disparaging remarks made against Chief Femi Fani-Kayode in the publication. As a member of the Fani-Kayode family and one who has followed closely the life and career of Femi-Fani-Kayode for almost 50 years, I believe it is pertinent for me to set the record straight.
