Foluke Daramola Breaks Pastor's Home

Actress and movie producer, Foluke Daramola is alleged to have being the reason behind the marriage break up between Kayode Salako and his wife, Olubukola, a pastor with the Redeemed Christian Church of God. 
The enviable marriage of Lagos big boy, Kayode Salako who runs the popular Fasholamania Independent Support Movement, a non- partisan support group for the efforts of Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola (SAN) and a non-governmental organization called Change Agents of Nigeria Network(CANN) to pastor Olubukola Salako is in trouble and apparently heading for a crash.
Their marriage, which has lasted for 13 years according to reliable sources, became a major issue in the Salako's family when pastor Olubukola on July 13th , 2012 packed all her belongings from their Lagos matrimonial home and took the their boys the union had produced to an undisclosed abode.
Information at our disposal also revealed that, the respected female pastor may have also left stern instruction with members off her church, a Redeem Christian Church of God located inside Omole Estate, Ikeja Lagos never to disclose her where about to her husband who has since been doing everything possible to be in touch with her and the kids.
When Kayode Salako was contacted about his troubled marriage and tales about Foluke Daramola being the cause.
He said, "it is my private life which I'm not supposed to make public but I will speak because of Foluke Daramola who is very close to me, and also the head of National Publicity Office of (CANN). My wife voluntarily moved out of my home about two months ago and the reason she gave was that my family members want to kill her, that she was no longer willing to live with me. Four days after she moved out her lawyers wrote to me notifying me of her intention to file for a divorce. Her reason was that my only brother was threatening to kill her. To my utmost surprise my wife moved out with 85% things in the house. She did this within eight days."
Mr. Kayode Salako owns a standard private secondary school known as Bosworth College International at Mafoluku, Oshodi, Rebecca Properties, Beverly Bond Investment Limited, Keroplus, a petroleum product marketing outfit that deals with diesel and kerosene.
He hails from Igbajo in Osun State, and we hear that he is always with Foluke Daramola, the Nollywood actress whose marriage broke up two years ago

Obasanjo Blasts Eedris Abdulkarem Again

For those who thought former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s anger towards Nigerian rapper, Eidris Abdulkarem’s 2004 hit song, “Nigeria jaga jaga”, has subsided and gone with the years goofed because the dust is yet to settle on the matter.
The two time president of Nigeria  while speaking at a forum organized by Nigeria Leadership Initiative (NLI)in Lagos on Tuesday, condemned the attitude of our modern day youth towards Nigeria.
Still so embittered over Abdulkareem’s hit track, which ruled the airwaves in 2004, Baba, as many would call him affirmed that it shows that the singer doesn’t believe in future of the country.
While lamenting the rate of corruption and suffering of the masses, Obasanjo maintained that with such mind set our youths are carried away with so much venom and hatred for their country.
According to him, “One of the worst problems Nigeria is facing is disbelief. Nigerians no longer believe in themselves neither do they believe in their country. That takes me back to that song ‘jaga jaga’. How could a sane man dare to call his country jajajaja? It is the height of blasphemy. We are grooming our youths for tomorrow’s leadership and with such persons I don’t think the country can move forward.
Concretely put, leadership connotes ability to inspire, direct, move, motivate, propel and encourage others positively to the targeted end. It is simply the ability to lead others.
An effective leader strives to avoid failure by guarding against inability to organize details, unwillingness to render humble services, fear of competition from followers, lack of imagination, selfishness, intemperance, living on rumors and gossips, favoritism and nepotism, emphasis on title and authority, excessive stress and burn out. He must also remember that leadership is an interaction between the characteristics of the leader himself and the characteristics of the situation in which leadership takes place.”
Conclusively, the Ota farmer buttressed that, “leadership should be a relay race and not an obstacle race.”
