News+: Ambode celebrate graciously @ 57 – Dele Momodu prays


Akinwunmi Ambode, former Governor of Lagos State, who turned 57, earned the encomiums and well wishes of some Nigerians on Sunday as they celebrated him.

Nigerian journalist, Dele Momodu was one of the few top personalities who have felicitated publicly with Ambode as of the time of filing this report.

Dele Modudu, prayed that God continues to bless him.


He said: “Happy birthday my very dear Brother, the former Governor of Lagos State, His Excellency MR AKINWUNMI AMBODE. May God almighty continue to bless and protect you and your family… Warmest regards always.”

Ever since he left office in an unceremonial manner, the former governor has chosen to retire to a quiet life.


The last time he was on social media was on May 28, 2019, when he handed over reins of government in Lagos State to His Excellency, Mr. Babajide Sanwoolu.

The last time his voice was heard was when the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, raided his house in Epe and Ikoyi on learning that he just arrived from abroad around June last year.


The former governor went through a thorny road in 2019.

However, we pray the former governor continues to enjoy God’s grace in his life.

COVID-19: FG shouldn’t have ban international flights – Dele Momodu says.

Dele Momodu has expressed his displeasure after FG barred international flights from coming into Nigeria for one month in a bid to curb the spread of Coronavirus.

Dele Momodu expresses his displeasure as FG bars international flights from coming into the country

In a statement released by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) and signed by Musa Nuhu (NCAA Director General), it was announced that international flights will be barred from coming into Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, and Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, from Monday March 23 to April 23 2020.

This comes after the Federal Government ordered the closure of three international airports in the country: Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano; Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu; and the Port Harcourt International Airport.

However, media entrepreneur Dele Momodu believes this decision made by the FG will not be favourable for a lot of people – Nigerians and foreigners alike – and he kicked against it.

He wrote:

“As always with us in Nigeria, we have once again seen the result of lack of preparation and coordination with the ill-informed and unnecessary decision to paralyse an entire nation and shut out all its citizens like orphans! I would have expected our leaders to give us comprehensive details of their plans instead of terse instructions.

What’s the purpose of saying no Nigerian can travel in or out of Nigeria from Monday for one month? So all Nigerians currently abroad who are not residing in those countries will suddenly become destitute when their finances run out. They must all abort their trips and return by tomorrow.

And those foreigners already in Nigeria, plus investors or workers on temporary visits will be imprisoned here for one month. Who bears the costs? What about the thousands of jobs? Who will pay them or feed their families? We can do much better by making life easier for our people in these difficult times instead of complicating their lives and giving them mental anguish. Even in more advanced countries, there is always a method to madness.

The closures are meticulously controlled and palliatives offered as incentives. All we are seeing here is so bizarre. Different Ministers issuing different directives without explaining how the people would not be made to suffer. As always, it is the poor that will bear the brunt of this total closure!!! Government should find ways of reducing the pains and this should be made public as soon as possible…”

Shocker: Sophie shades Davido for saying Chioma made his life complete

Davido’s first baby mama, Sophia Momodu is not here for jokes as she shot a bullet full of subtle shades at him for his recent statement that his only achievement that made his life a complete success is getting married and having a son with his fiancée, Chioma Avril.

Many social media users were expecting her to react tbh because Davido’s statement sounded partial but we didn’t expect her reaction to come in a sarcastic way.

Reacting to that, Davido’s baby mama, Sophia Momodu has also taken to her Instagram page to post a bikini photo with the caption, ‘Life no sweet pass this one.. e get why‘.
