Kolawole said there is a need to restore confidence in people to return to the farms, adding that he will also reenact the stomach infrastructure policy of the state’s immediate former governor, Ayodele Fayose.

According to him, creating the enabling environment for and attracting investment to the state would create job opportunities and raise its revenue to meet the needs for infrastructures development and other needs.

Kolawole urged them to continue to stress values that made the party tick as they attracted more supporters and followers to the party.

In his words, “I am seeking this position with a strong pedigree as a former legislator and former commissioner. I am going to be people-centric. All my activities will be centered around the people. If your people cannot cheer you as a governor, you are just a mere visitor, stranger, and expatriate.

“I will create a security-conscious environment to restore confidence in our people to go back to the farms. Never again will Ekiti people be kidnapped on the roads or in the farms nor will they be sacked or killed in the farms. When there is security, investors will come to establish industries. Then, government revenue will increase. Our people will be employed.”

The PDP candidate promised that if elected, his government would reengage workers laid off by the incumbent Governor Kayode Fayemi in Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti, and the state civil service

The PDP candidate said that he would develop the stomach infrastructure policy of the Ayodele Fayose administration, saying, “It is a good policy. Our people must enjoy the dividends of democracy. Nothing stops a governor from giving out part of the food in the Government House to feed the commoners”.

Kolawole added, “Some parts of the state, including Ekiti East, Gbonyin and Ekiti West have been in darkness for a decade. If Biodun Oyebanji, the APC candidate, who had been Secretary to the State Government could not solve the problem of electricity in his Ikogosi country home and Ipole, would he now be able to solve some of the problems confronting Ekiti?”

Pilot who fell unconscious midflight is home from hospital as doctors say his recovery is ‘miraculous’

Pilot who fell unconscious midflight is home from hospital as doctors say his recovery is

The pilot who fell unconscious last week mid-flight has made a recovery that his doctor is calling “a miracle.”

After the pilot lost consciousness, a passenger with no experience on how to fly a plane succeeded in landing the plane, saving all three people on board from crashing.

Darren Harrison, 39, successfully landed the plane at Palm Beach International Airport, where emergency personnel then rushed the pilot to St. Mary’s Medical Center before he was transferred to Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center.

The pilot, whose name has not been released, is now out of the hospital and resting at home after he underwent surgery for an aortic dissection, according to the hospital.

An aortic dissection is a life-threatening emergency in which a tear occurs in the inner layer of the body’s main artery.

Dr. Nishant Patel, a cardiothoracic surgeon at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center who treated the pilot, revealed how long the odds were that the man would survive the landing, the trips to the two hospitals and then the surgery.

Patel said on Tuesday, May 17: “Fifty percent of patients won’t make it to the hospital, and then 50% of patients that do make it to the hospital will pass away within 24 hours without prompt diagnosis and treatment.”

The pilot was released from the hospital on Monday, May 16.

It’s a “really quite miraculous recovery, miraculous story,” Patel said.

Emergency personnel initially thought the pilot had potentially suffered a stroke before doctors at St. Mary’s discovered a tear in his aorta, according to Patel. He was quickly transferred to the second hospital for emergency surgery.

“First thing he asked me (after the surgery) is, ‘Doc, when am I going to go home?’ which I thought was really quite amazing,” Patel said. “Everything about this guy is just truly, truly amazing. He definitely understands everything that happened, and how severe the situation was on so many different levels before the hospital, in the operating room, and during recovery.”

Patel said the pilot was in great health before the cardiac event and has already done “remarkably well” in his recovery.

Court dissolves marriage over doubtful paternity

Court dissolves marriage over doubtful paternity

An Igando Customary Court in Lagos State has ordered the dissolution of the marriage between Mr. Jose Salami and Mrs. Sola Jaiyeola, on grounds of the doubtful paternity of their only child.

Vanguard reports that in a petition filed before the court, Salami, a resident of Number 9, Bakare St., Igando, Lagos State, said he doubted the paternity of the only child produced by the union.

“In March 2013, she said she was a month pregnant for me; so, I arranged for a traditional marriage to be done. But to my surprise, my wife put to bed in July of that same year, and when I asked how possible it was, she waived it aside.

 

 

In his judgment, the President of the court, Adeniyi Koledoye, said that it appeared the love between the couple had since perished. He noted that the respondent did not show up in court in spite of several summons.

“There is no doubt that the respondent was in another relationship from which she was pregnant, and perhaps the pregnancy was rejected and she decided to hang it on the petitioner. However, the petitioner ought to have opted out of the marriage immediately he discovered that the paternity of the child was doubtful. It is clear the petitioner was deceived into the marriage by the respondent,” the judge held

Koledoye, therefore, dissolved the marriage and ordered the respondent to pay N200,000 to the petitioner.
