Wale Ojo Lanre Inside the Study Room of Late President Félix Houphouët-Boigny of Cote DÍvoire
(French pronunciation: [feliks ufwɛt bwaɲi] or [feliks ufwɛ bwaɲi];[1][2] 18 October 1905 – 7 December 1993), affectionately called Papa Houphouët or Le Vieux (The Old One), was the first President of Côte d'Ivoire (1960 to 1993), serving for more than three decades until his death. A tribal chief, he worked as a medical aide, union leader, and planter before being elected to the French Parliament. He served in several ministerial positions within the French government before leading Côte d'Ivoire following independence in 1960. Throughout his life, he played a significant role in politics and the decolonization of Africa.
Under Houphouët-Boigny's politically moderate leadership, Côte d'Ivoire prospered economically. This success, uncommon in poverty-ridden West Africa, became known as the "Ivorian miracle" and was due to a combination of sound planning, the maintenance of strong ties with the West (particularly France), and development of the country's significant coffee and cocoa industries. However, the exploitation of the agricultural sector caused difficulties in 1980, after a sharp drop in the prices of coffee and cocoa.
Throughout his presidency, Houphouët-Boigny maintained a close relationship with France, a policy known as Françafrique, and he built a close friendship with Jacques Foccart, the chief adviser on African policy in the de Gaulle and Pompidou governments. He aided the conspirators who ousted Kwame Nkrumah from power in 1966, took part in the coup against Mathieu Kérékou in 1977, and was suspected of involvement in the 1987 coup that removed Thomas Sankara from power in Burkina Faso. Houphouët-Boigny maintained a strong anti-communist foreign policy, which resulted in, among other things, severing diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union in 1969 (after first establishing relations in 1967) and refusing to recognise the People's Republic of China until 1983. He provided assistance to UNITA, a United States-supported, anti-communist rebel movement in Angola. In 1986 he re-established relations with the Soviet Union, shortly before the fall of its confederation.
In the West, Houphouët-Boigny was commonly known as the "Sage of Africa" or the "Grand Old Man of Africa". Houphouët-Boigny moved the country's capital from Abidjan to his hometown of Yamoussoukro and built the world's largest church there, the Basilica of Our Lady of Peace of Yamoussoukro, at a cost of US$300 million. At the time of his death, he was the longest-serving leader in Africa's history and the third longest-serving leader in the world, after Fidel Castro of Cuba and Kim Il-sung of North Korea. In 1989, UNESCO created the Félix Houphouët-Boigny Peace Prize for the "safeguarding, maintaining and seeking of peace". After his death, conditions in Côte d'Ivoire quickly deteriorated. From 1994 until 2002, there were a number of coups d'état, a currency devaluation, an economic recession, and, beginning in 2002, a civil war.

Corruption is fighting Kemi Adeosun By Wale ojo Lanre

Corruption is fighting  Kemi Adeosun
Wale ojo Lanre
I don't join the multitude to do evil
It is clear that Kemi must have stepped on toes of the thieves 
She must have offended some political male chauvinists
Who would have orchestrated this 'forged NYSC exemption Certificate "
Forged exemption certificate?
Who detected this?
Which media again?
Well, we should be clinical
We should be careful in what we believe
As we may get to know very soon
or soonest
That it is a lie
A blatant lie
Contorted to blackmail this young lady
who is performing well
And the source may come out again
To tell the world
That they were misguided
By those who hate the advancement of Nigeria
To a greater height
Under the PMB administration
This period will soon be passed away
And Nigerians would know
That the who saga of forged 'exemption NYSC certificate
Of Kemi Adeosun
was a ruse.
A calculated blackmailing content
To distract the lady, tarnish her reputation
And score a goal off PMB
But, God is for the Truth.
And a convoluted mind - Femi Fani Kayode's ranting
Is it not an embarrassment and a shame to the nation that one Femi Fani Kayode will open his mouth wide and criticize her . This is FFK with the deluge of fraudulent cases on his neck?.
Shamefully it is a Nigeria ........
Where idiots become the nobles
where those whose are suffering from a relapse of insanity
are regarded as reformers
It is a country when hooliganism and brigandage are virtues
It is a Nigeria where idiots hold the sway.
However, God will take control of Nigeria

Travel Practitioners’ Identity Card Stirs Controversy As Wale Ojo - Lanre takes NANTA to court By Omolola Itayemi Thisday

Travel Practitioners’ Identity Card Stirs Controversy
As Wale Ojo - Lanre takes NANTA to court

Cards are usually associated with games and gambling. Game cards have different values – Ace of clubs, Joker in a pack, Queen of hearts, the Four Aces and the rest. You win or lose depending on how you play. And so it seems that some practitioners in the travel and tourism industry have played a card – a travel practitioners’ card. But some fellow travellers are not playing. They are contesting the draw. Did the National Association of Nigerian Travel Agencies play a good card? Omolola Itayemi writes
Last Tuesday, Nigerian travel agents celebrated what was considered a milestone with the introduction of its identity card called Nigerian Travel Practitioners’ Identity Card (NTPIC) under the leadership of Bankole Bernard, the current president of National Association of Nigerian Travel Agencies (NANTA).
Canapés, cocktails, good music and the right ambience characterised the launch. All present were ecstatic about it and all seemed very well.

But the celebration was hardly over when the group was slammed with a suit. NANTA was given seven days to withdraw the purported ID card.
In a letter served on Bankole, NANTA President by Yinka Olujimi and Company, Legal Practitioners, with the headline ‘Illegal Introduction of a Purported Nigerian Travel Practitioners Identification Card’, Mr. Wale Ojo- Lanre, a tourism stakeholder, averred that the inauguration of such a scheme was not only Ultra Vires, but outside the purview of the objectives of the association.
Ojo-Lanre pointed out that Bankole claimed during the inauguration of the scheme that his action was in collaboration with the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), a corporate entity, which has no statutory mandate to venture into the production and issuance of such a document.
Bernard, on the other hand, believes the travel identity card is not misleading to other industry practitioners.
In an interview with this correspondent, he explained the decision of NANTA to name the card as such: “NANTA is set up by an act and affiliated with NCAA. Travel is part of the chain of tourism but tourism is not part of the chain of travel. Do any of the people understand how we travel agents operate our business? Travel is the only industry that is under two ministries – Aviation and Tourism. How many of them have any relationships with IATA? Which other associations write tickets, tell me? I maintain, it is not illegal to use Travel Practitioners because we use ‘Travel’ in the formation of the agency name NANTA and we need identity cards that are international in nature. It’s to help identify genuine members and also to practical cub the menace of individuals that parade themselves as travel agents who end up defrauding innocent Nigerians.
Let me explain further, this card is only for travel agents and consultants.”
Pelu Awofeso, an award-winning travel and tourism writer and publisher of Waka-about is of the opinion that the card was done in good faith: “I was privileged to attend some NANTA meetings where the ID card was discussed and its importance emphasised over and over. I was impressed that the body was taking a bold step to check 419 travel agents who open shop, fleece unsuspecting customers and close shop shortly after.
The leadership cited many instances of corrupt practitioners running into millions of Naira. But when what was solely meant to be a strictly NANTA ID for genuine practitioners morphed into a wholesale ID for the travel industry in Nigeria beats me. But again, we must recognise the fact that the project initiators had noble intentions. They just need to re-calibrate and all should be well.”
