Kanu’s Lawyer Speaks On Alleged Secret Meeting Between IPOB Leader And Tinubu In Aso Rock

Published

on

Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lawyer to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has denied the claim that his client met secretly with President Bola Tinubu inside the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

A social media post had claimed that Kanu, who has been in the custody of the Department of State Service (DSS) in Abuja since June 2021, was scheduled to meet with President Tinubu at 11 a.m. on Wednesday.

The post claimed that during the meeting some “documents” would be presented to the IPOB leader for review, adding that Kanu’s release process would kick off as soon as possible after the meeting.

Reacting to the claim in a chat with SaharaReporters, Ejiofor denied knowledge of such a meeting, describing the information as fake and unfounded being propagated by anonymous fake persons.

Ejiofor said that the same false information was posted on Facebook, saying that it is impossible that Kanu would be having such a meeting without any of his lawyers knowing.

He said: “I was with Nnamdi Kanu on Monday and he did not mention anything like that. There is no such a meeting. It is useless information being published on social media by an anonymous person.

“Someone had sent the post from Facebook to me earlier this morning but I said I speak on such issues because it makes no sense. I wonder how possible it is that Kanu will be having such a meeting without any of his lawyers knowing.

“I was with Nnamdi on Monday and what we discussed was about his case coming up at the Supreme Court on Thursday. That is what he asked me to inform Chief Ozekhome about. He did not say anything about any meeting and he did not ask me to tell Ozekhome anything.

“All I can say is that I don’t have any knowledge of any meeting and Nnamdi Kanu did not inform his lawyers about any meeting. It is fake information being circulated by non-credible bloggers who claim anonymously.”

Love Knows No Age: Breaking Down the Taboo of Younger Men Dating Older Women in Nigeria

Published

on

As I explore Nigeria’s rich cultural heritage, I’m struck by the harmful biases that exist.

One example is the stigma against older women dating younger men – a double standard that restricts women’s choices and reinforces harmful gender stereotypes.

In Nigeria, a woman’s value is often tied to her age, with younger women being prized for their beauty and fertility.

what about older women who desire love and companionship? Why are they shamed for their relationships, forced to hide their love due to societal pressure?

The double standard is clear. Older men marrying younger women is widely accepted, even celebrated, while older women in relationships with younger men face judgment and discrimination.

This issue affects men too, who are trapped by societal norms, forced to conform to traditional gender roles and expectations.

It’s time to challenge these outdated norms and embrace love in all its forms by promoting gender equality and inclusivity.

Let’s look to inspiring examples of older women who have defied societal norms and found love with younger men. Women like Gabrielle Union, who has spoken publicly about her relationship with her husband, Dwyane, who is several years younger than her or women like Viola Davis, who has embraced her love for her husband, Julius Tennon, despite their significant age difference.

These women are trailblazers, paving the way for a new generation of Nigerians who refuse to be bound by societal norms.

They show us that love knows no age, no gender, and no boundaries. It’s time for us to follow their lead and create a society that truly celebrates love in all its forms.

Research has shown that relationships with significant age gaps can be just as fulfilling and long-lasting as those with smaller age gaps. In fact, some studies suggest that older women in relationships with younger men may experience increased happiness and satisfaction due to the younger partner’s energy and enthusiasm.

By letting go of societal constraints and embracing our true desires, we can experience increased self-esteem, confidence, and overall life satisfaction.

we can create a society where everyone can love freely, without fear of judgment or rejection.
