GOVERNOR Bola Tinubu of Lagos State yesterday, expressed anxiety over the renewed political killings in the country, saying this could scare credible people from participating in politics. Tinubu made the observation at the presidential wing of the Murtala Muhammed airport, Lagos, where he went to receive President Olusegun Obasanjo on arrival from Abuja yesterday afternoon. Obasanjo on arrival immediately boarded a helicopter waiting for him to his Ota farm.

Tinubu said the murder of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Chief Funso Williams in his Lagos home would scare credible people from participating in politics and would underdevelop the country’s political terrain.

Speaking to newsmen, Tinubu also said the two-week ban on political activities in the state remained intact in honour of the deceased politician. This he said would be extended to the expected launch of the Advanced Congress of Democrats (ACD) in Lagos today (Monday).

The governor however adviced Nigerians to be security conscious and give the police information whenever they suspected any fictitious movement or meetings of individuals or groups in their environment.

His words: “It (security) is an issue for all of us to be aware of the danger around us. We have to be conscious of information around us, we are all stakeholders, the level of security awareness we create would be helping the police in gathering information. The issue of security is crucial. We should be able to give information on the suspicious movement of people, meetings and other activities in our area.

Otasowie means evening life is better than morning life. There is an error in your “evening life is better than evening life”?

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.
