Grand corollaries of Ambode, Fasolas reconciliation by David Fadimu

Last Saturday, the Minister for Power, Works & Housing Mr. Babatunde Fashola (SAN) paid a landmark courtesy visit to his successor and Executive Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode.

Following the contentious debate between the two leaders in the preceding week, it was most gratifying to see them pulling together and putting their differences of opinion aside in the best overall interest of Lagos State and Nigeria.

As the sitting Governor of Lagos State, Ambode has left no one in doubt about his intension and deep commitment to transform Lagos truly into a state of aquatic splendor. Nothing offers a state a golden opportunity to showcase its economic prosperity, political stability, serenity and grandeur more than its gateways. The biggest gateway not only into Lagos but Nigeria is the iconic but now derelict Murtala Muhammed International Airport.

Even more disheartening is the road from the airport to Apapa-Osodi Expressway. To call it an eyesore is probably the vilest understatement of a lifetime. A stretch of dilapidated walls, miserable structures, a retinue of rickety buses, taxis, towing vehicles and petrol tankers littered the road in a manner that would make any conscionable Nigerian to convulse with trepidation.

This unfathomable scenario did not just happen yesterday or last year, it has been like that for decades. A former President of the country was once quoted as saying during his campaign visit to Lagos State that he wept when he saw the state of the road. Providence smiled at the President; he won his election, spent four more years and conveniently forgot to fix the same road which had made him to shed crocodile tears when he was scavenging for votes.

As Governor of Lagos State, one of the projects Fashola would have loved to execute was the Murtala Mohammed International Airport Road. A beautiful design for the reconstruction, rehabilitation and beautification of the road was done but unfortunately, that initiative was sacrificed on the altar of politics. The Federal Government, then under a different political party, must have felt that if they collaborated with the Lagos Government and allowed the state government to fix the road, which undoubtedly fell under federal jurisdiction, all the glory would go to Lagos State and the party in power there. Sadly in Nigeria, it is not about the comfort of the people first. It is all about the ego of those in power.

Ambode must have felt that fixing the airport road now would be an easy ride because not only did his party control governments at both the state and federal level, his predecessor is the incumbent Minister of Works, Power and Housing. An aide of Governor Ambode had even said assuredly to me during a conversation that the Lagos State Government would perform the ground-breaking to fix the road latest by this March. This was not to be.

The realization that the grand effort to fix the all-important social and economic road might be jinxed again might have compelled Ambode to express his frustration in the court of public opinion.
It is therefore refreshing to see that both Ambode and Fashola are on the same page in addressing all the issues, which created friction between both leaders in the past. Beyond what they said in the public glare, instructively, what they did not say carried the bigger weight. Both came across as genuine in their intentions. Their countenances, body language and open display of affection came across as real and sincere. Ambode was matured and effusive in heaping tons of praises on his predecessors, dating it back to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and dovetailing it down to Fashola whom he credited for his phenomenal achievements in his 8 years in office.

In unifying, they have displayed exemplary leadership. By focusing on their commonalities -- their energetic and passionate will to make revolutionary impact in Lagos.

Governor Ambodes laser focus on his target of Lagos becoming the third largest economy in Africa by 2020 has been the driving force for finding common ground with his predecessor. He said, We are all strongly committed to increasing value in Lagos and maximizing the States enormous potential for growth to better the lives of all residents in Lagos. He went on to say What binds us all is our passion for Lagos and the people and we stand together on that. Ultimately, it is about a shared goal that we have all worked tirelessly to achieve for our people and we will get it done.

One of the Federal Controllers for Works who accompanied Fashola on the visit mentioned the airport road as one of the projects the Federal Ministry of Works is planning to execute. This is where both leaders have to do more work. The Federal Government is planning to do the road while the Lagos State Government has already set aside the fund to do the road in view of its importance. If the Federal Government already has the funds to fix the road, they should commence the process immediately in order to bring to an end the misery of long suffering Nigerians and international visitors plying that road once and for all.

If on the other hand, the Federal Government does not have the resources as yet, they should allow the Lagos State Government to fix the road immediately. Posterity, and indeed all well meaning Lagosians numbering over 22 million people, will NOT forgive anyone who has had a hand in frustrating that project.

Jane fought to prevent Teegan from going with her father and sister, Luke Lawrence who went to school with Andi revealed.
"Jane was totally against the idea and wanted Teegan to remain with her, " Luke said. "But Andi was older and could be very headstrong, so she just went off and did it anyway."

Stepdad kills 2-year-old girl in anger after he lost computer game

A stepdad killed her 2-year-old stepdaughter by throwing her into a door in frustration because he lost a computer game he was playing. Szymon Brzozowski, 24, threw the toddler at the door's metal frame and she eventually died from "cranio-cerebral injuries".

The toddler, whose name was given as Lilka, did not lose consciousness after the attack but she couldn't eat or drink anything subsequently.

Her mother, Angelika, 24, took her to the hospital two days later but did not tell medics what really happened to her daughter. Three days later, during an operation, the child died. Prosecutors said the girl had been suffering from "cranio-cerebral injuries" - injuries to the skull and brain.

The incident occurred at the family's home in the village of Pila in Wielkopolska Province in Poland. This will not be the first time Lilka is receiving treatment for injuries suspected to be related to domestic violence, but when it happened previously, Angelika had told social workers that the child was clumsy and constantly walked into things.

Following interrogation, Brzozowski revealed that his method of punishing a child was to make them stand in a corner or lock them in the bathroom. Angelika later opened up to police that Brzozowski had "thrown the girl at the door frame in frustration at losing at a computer game".

He has been charged with child abuse that led to the death of a child, as well as mentally abusing his wife and her other two children while Angelika was charged with failing to provide medical help. Brzozowski faces a sentence of up to 12 years if found guilty

'I didn't know how to handle the children, now i understand why people commit suicide': Rio Ferdinand admits he wasn't ready for the death of his wife

Rebecca Ferdinand, wife to former Man U and England star player Rio Ferdinand passed away in May 2015 after a brief battle with breast cancer and the footballer has now revealed in a new interview how her death made him wonder if he'll ever be able to feel happy again or be able to take care of his three children - aged 10, 8 and 5.

Ferdinand won so many titles while with Manchester United, but sadly admitted that even champions like him find it hard surviving when life decides to throw a blow towards them as it took a long time before he decided to seek professional help

Speaking to Radio 5Live, Ferdinand, 38, revealed: 'It was six weeks from going into hospital and then Rebecca passing. You can't prepare. A lot of the problems I had after, I hadn't prepared to be in this position, as to what I tell the children.
'I didn't know how to carry on with the children. We couldn't have those conversations because it became so aggressive at a certain point.'
I’m sitting there thinking how can I ever be happy. I’m happy over here, but I look at my children and that brings me back to sadness again.
'I was ignorant myself, I was thinking no way am I going to go see a shrink. On this journey, I got a great understanding that there are some fantastic people out there who help.'
Speaking about suicidal thoughts, he said:
'I didn't think about it myself but I understand people who get into that situation.Before I'd think that guy is so ignorant and selfish. Now I wouldn't do it but I understand why he's there.'

Ferdinand admitted he had some difficulties in explaining their mother's death to his children.
'It's a bad place to be when you're worried about your children's fears,' he continued. I didn't know any techniques to speak to the children, I didn't know what buttons to push. I'd been starting conversations with them to get the feelings down. They were able to shut down and walk away.'
But Ferdinand discovered a technique he had picked up on through counselling:
'We came up with the memory jar. One of the girls said she had a memory jar. They wrote down memories all the time of their mum. I thought that was a good idea.
'Once I introduced it it opened everything up. It was a beautiful moment, to see them speak positively about their mum. It had been very sad, negative moments talking about their mum. It turned it from dark to bright.'
