The biggest money mistake I ever made was money spent on my wedding- Ubi Franklin

Music executive, Ubi Franklin says the biggest money mistake he has ever made is the money he plunged into having a huge wedding celebration.

Ubi had a superlative wedding with his ex-wife, Lilian Esoro, in November 2015. Their marriage however crashed one year later.

Ubi was a guest on a TV show for BusinessDay recently. When asked what his biggest money mistake ever has been, Ubi said;

''I think the biggest money mistake for me was the money for my wedding. That was the biggest money mistake because a few guys that had experience at the time told me to just do something small and then go home. When I see people do big scale wedding, I laugh because it's a party, it is just for a day and when that day is done, it's done. Yes they say memories but you see, you can create memories without spending billions. So I think that is one of the biggest money mistake I have made'. If I had known, I would have done something smaller, classier than what I did because I did like almost three months of different events '

Ubi also revealed he has made over N10 billion in the last eight years.

''From 2012 till now, I have made over 10 billion but didn't keep it because I didn't have financial discipline to know that I could invest that money in something else that could generate money"he said

He also took to his Instastories last night to react to the attack he has received from Nigerians over his N10 billion claim.

Update: Super Eagles call off their strike in Egypt over unpaid allowances

Nigeria’s Super Eagles have suspended their training strike over unpaid bonuses at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt following last-minute intervention by top football officials.

The team finally agreed to train in Alexandria, 30 minutes after schedule, after the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) promised to pay a win bonus from their 1-0 victory over Burundi on Saturday, by the end of the week.

NFF spokesman Ademola Olajire said “the matter has been resolved”, conceding that funds for the tournament had arrived late.

“The NFF received part of the money meant for the tournament today and is in the process of converting it to dollars to pay the players and officials. The only money they’re owed is the win-bonus for the Burundi match” he said.

The bonuses were expected to be paid by the NFF after Saturday’s game ended. Officials close to the team, who spoke under anonymity, told AFP that following reassurances from the NFF “the team captain spoke to the players, asking them to show some understanding after which the team agreed to train”.

The players had earlier boycotted the official pre-match conference. Other NFF officials disclosed that the players have been paid a daily training allowance of $200-a-player from June 2 to June 30.

My monthly salary is N750,000 – New Senate President, Ahmed Lawan reveals

Senate president Ahmed Lawan has said his monthly salary is N750,000 and that there was nothing like jumbo salary for National Assembly members as being speculated in the media.

Lawan made the disclosure, when members of the Senators’ Forum paid him a courtesy visit in his office in Abuja on Tuesday. While further disregarding the jumbo pay issue, he revealed that his monthly salary as a lawmaker and that of his colleagues was N750,000.

“What I want to emphasize here is that I never believed that that there is anything called Jombo pay to the national assembly. The National Assembly members both the Senate and the House receive what is their salaries and I receive N750,000 as my salary. But I need to function as a senator, my office needs to be properly funded,” he said.

He promised that the National Assembly was going to be open to the general public in the conduct of its legislative activities, particularly in the area of funding;

“National Assembly is going to be open to the public, I believe that the national assembly should have everything open , let Nigerians Know, what we are doing. I believe that Nigerians need to understand this, we need to continually engage with Nigerians and I will also argue that we continue to explain to Nigerians, they deserve to know how their resources are being utilised. I believe that the national assembly needs proper funding because the legislature is so critical in any national development,’’ he said.

I reluctantly dealt with former CJN, Walter Onnoghen - President Buhari

President Buhari yesterday openned up on why his administration dealt with the immediate past Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen.

Justice Onnoghen was suspended in January this year over claims he failed to declare all his assets when he assumed office in March 2017 and also after suspicious amount of money were found in his Naira and foreign accounts. He was tried at the Code of Conduct Tribunal and in May, the former CJN tendered in his resignation.

President Buhari while receiving members of the Pan Yoruba group, Afenifere in his office in the state House Abuja yesterday June 25th, said he went after the former CJN when he could not explain the source of the money found in his accounts. Speaking to the Yoruba leaders, the President said;

“I will tell you as Afenifere, that was why I had to deal though reluctantly with the former Chief Justice, because there were millions of dollars, euros, not to talk of naira, which were not declared.

I wonder what sort of conscience some of us have. How can you seat and preside and lock people up for years and even sentence some to death and yet you are not doing what the constitution says you should do by occupying that vital institution.

On fighting corruption, you know it again I don’t mind repeating myself even though I sound like a broken record, as a military head of state, I took everyone to prison and pronounced them guilty until they can prove themselves innocent.

We put tribunals in all geo-political zones and they investigated those who were in charge of government money and took all of them in prison until they explained what happened to government’s money. Even I was detained, this is Nigeria.

That was why I decided to put on agbada and see. I attempted three times up to Supreme Court and winning the fourth time thanking God and technology, I am now qualified to be a solider and a politician.

Now what I do is when a person cannot justify what he has or fails to declare as the constitution specifies, some of them swear to almighty God that their property doesn’t belong to them until we show them their bank accounts and their companies then we have some peace.’’
