It’s like the whole Nigeria was inside bottle of coke this week, and somebody carried that bottle and started shaking it. Everything was just popping as if it’s fight. Anyway, let’s get right into it.
Seun Fakorede Vs. the Agbayas
While some were rejoicing that an actual youth (not a 55-year old youth) was put in charge of the Ministry of Youth and Sports in Oyo State (really, we’re very close to standing that state governor), some agbayas somewhere decided to gather and carry placard, angry that he was appointed.
Really, what we have to say about that is: What kind of kids have those people raised that they believe a 27-year-old isn’t old enough to lead a ministry. Says something about them as parents, doesn’t it?
Not only is Seun Fakorede a young person, he has distinguished himself as a professional and consultant through the years. Succeed he must! https://t.co/KDFFZuBLCS

Those saying the 27 year old Seun Fakorede commissioner nominee lacks experience to head a ministry are among the problems we have in Nigeria. What about those that have been ruling us since 1960? What's the state of the country with their experience? Seyi Makinde till 2027 ? pic.twitter.com/gZAO0ogUOq

Whose parents are these ones? They said they’re protesting the nomination of a 27years old Seun Fakorede by Governor Seyi Makinde as commissioner in Oyo State.
If anyone’s parent happened to be this unfortunate, the best is to tie him/her down. Were ree o pic.twitter.com/87zPcl7XLz

Seun Fakorede, you been appointed a Commissioner by Governor Seyi Makinde is to show and prove that the Youths have the capacity and wherewithal to rule, please represent us well and don't disappoint us, so other youths chances are not blocked.

Kindly check out Home Advantage Africa on goggle. He’s the founder. You can do well to check out his Instagram posts too. The Seun Fakorede is not one to disappoint – he is a shooting star, to watch.

Temilolu Asamu (32 years) -Commissioner for Energy
Seun Fakorede (27 years)- Commissioner for Youths and Sports
Not like Seyi Makinde made the promise of appointing youths categorically, but here is he just doing what he thinks is right. Those that even promised it are where?
— Judah Idowu (@IdowuJudah) August 20, 2019
In Oyo state, Seyi Makinde has nominated 27-year old Seun Fakorede as Commissioner. He will be the Commissioner for Youth and Sports. The Speaker of Oyo House of Assembly is 33.
I hope they will deliver. We've seen youths in governance, who later failed. May they be the change.

Love is Dead
Want to know why? Because not only Jamie and Nikki break up, but Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes, too. (Actually, not really for the latter, because did we even know they were together?) Still, a tragedy.

Ambode & EFCC (Again!)
Again because didn’t we already talk about this last week? But, alas, this one is a match that they’ll be playing weekly. And it’ll always be a home game for Ambode.
Anyway, EFCC, once again, have raided the home of the former Lagos State governor. The one in Epe, this time. And fans of the home team weren’t very happy, allegedly attacking the EFCC.

Dear @officialEFCC pls once you're done with Ambode, kindly let me know because a house in my estate has been under your investigation for the past 4years now and nobody has stepped into the house since then.
Pls let me know if I should go ahead and claim it

When you've done so much for the people and the accuser of the brethren comes knocking at your door, even with their guns 'THE PEOPLE' will resist them and they shall flee.

The humiliation of Ambode must be complete.
A coward dies a thousand times before their death.
EFCC have now laid siege at his house now.

Now EFCC is after him…?

Equality of Religions in Osun State
Considering the number of public holidays the Abrahamic religions get in Nigeria, it’s not at all ridiculous that one of our indigenous religions is getting a public holiday.
Osun State has declared August 20 as Isese Day, and, really, bold move. Bold move.
A very progressive move. This should be the start of more fundamental discussions around the role and respect of indigenous knowledge systems in our society: Osun State declares public holiday for traditional worshippers https://t.co/Gj3pVWA6Tn
— Afropracticalist (@BabsFagbayibo) August 20, 2019
The Osun Government has declared Tuesday, August 20th as a public holiday to mark the 2019 Traditional Worshippers’ Day, also known as ‘’Isese Day.” Nice one,forex should also be made available for them to go on pilgrimage wherever they want to.

The Sign Language Rapper
We remember in secondary school when we would chop mouth trying to rap along to Twista because he was just too fast. But at a concert recently, his sign language interpreter hit every single word the rapper rapped, and she did it with style! Someone give her a medal!
She got the internet going nuts! Amber Galloway doing sign language and keeping up with Twista?! Yeah that’s incredible . pic.twitter.com/qlCjUqg4RG

FBI & Yahoo Yahoo
See ehn, this was definitely the worst thing about the week. Steady giving Nigeria and Nigerians a bad rep, cyber crime professionals, 77 of them, were indicted by the FBI in the USA.
Of course, the matter has brought up the issue about Nigerians being known for crime. But, as one everything, there’s a silver lining: those nicknames!
No, honestly, those nicknames are gold. “Tmrw Africa Will Wake Up.” “All Africa Media Network.” “Son of God.” “Thank you Jesus.” People are weird sha.
I’m watching right now on @ABC a press release by @FBILosAngeles on Nigerian internet scam syndicate. A heart shattering embarrassment to this country, those we call yahoo boys have scammed Americans to the tune of $1.1bn between Jan-July this year alone. This is a disaster! pic.twitter.com/RmIxH4coSs

In all honesty, it is because of yahoo boys that many people can't find love today and unnecessary pressure has been placed on many young people to make it at a tender age.
No one cares the process anymore. If you don't have plenty money, you are seen as less important.

Not if – like @FBI – @officialEFCC had done their investigation, drafted their charges, made their arrests and *then* gone public. That's how EFCC operated when first formed. It's now condemned for 'media trial' because it seems to have got things in the wrong order!
