Atolagbe Animashaun Praises Shomolu LG Chairman, DULLAR: Deems Him a Worthy Role Model for The Youths

A respected and renowned businessman in Shomolu who is an ardent lover of farming and a proud promoter of handiwork has praised and extolled Shomolu Local Government Chairman, Abdul-Ahmed Salaudeen popularly called DULLAR for his deeds and hard work over the past couple of years since he assumed office. He tagged the LG Chairman as a “special leader chosen by God to liberate and empower the youths” and declared Shomolu youths “lucky indeed” to have DULLAR as their Chairman.

Atolagbe Animashaun who is the CEO of Tola Guinea Fowl Ventures, the most popular grilled foods service in Lagos and National Director, Youths Love Inc.- a NGO focused on building Youths who are self-sufficient, productive, fiscally responsible and are a generally more than a definite plus to the society; made this known in a recent talk with journalists. I must confess his enthusiasm and fervor for building legitimately productive and skilled youths are genuine and very contagious.

The King of Awo as Atolagbe Animashaun is fondly and rightly called had recently received state-wide acclaim and accolades when he bagged the award for the best Finger Foods Company late last year and early this year for a particularly sterling interview where he touted the now famous words “Farmers are Not Slaves!” and preached the importance of farming and having a handiwork or skill to our youths and country as a whole. In the interview by esrtwhile FlipTV journalist Boma Al Onyanabo, he went as far as to demand the addition of a brand new subject-Pratical Farming-to the curriculum of all schools across the nation. Addressing the government, he maintained that only by doing so would we as a nation come to resurrect the acceptance and pride in farming by our young ones and future leaders. He has since been recognized as a bonafide lover of the youths, agriculture and farming and a staunch advocate of getting a skill or learning a handiwork-regarding of your educational status or level; graduate or not.

The successful businessman has asked youths in this most recent chat with journalists to pick role models carefully from some of our leaders. Leaders who are hardworking and genuinely love the youths and constantly try to empower them. He said that he knew that there weren’t that many leaders out there who were worthy of being made role models of and emulating, but he charged the youths not to forget the benefits of having the right role models and learning from their successes, failures and mistakes. He made an example of the present Local Government Chairman of Shomolu Abdul-Hamed Salaudeen and brandished the Chairman as a leader and politician to be studied and emulated by the youths of his constituency and nationwide.

In his words:

“Let’s take for example someone who is close to home and who we all in Shomolu here know very closely; our Chairman Abdul Hamed Salaudeen who was given to us by God. He is someone whom I respect and love very much, and one of the few politicians I can sincerely say I have learnt a couple of things from. I know most of our leaders and politicians nowadays are terrible role models for our youths but DULLAR is a shining light amongst his peers and contemporaries.”

“We are not friends or acquaintances but I have been lucky to meet him once or twice(in passing) and he left a lasting impression on me. He is easily accessible, down to earth and seeks opinions and advice constantly from the people around him. He listens and that is a God given gift he is using it well. Any business owner who has established a successful business in any environment in Nigeria knows how crucial it is be sound and well versed politically even if one is not politically active.”

“I have watched the Chairman closely over the years and have identified three key attitudes that I love about him and sincerely implore youths to emulate and practice in their every day lives and see themselves get the acclaim and success DULLAR has achieved and have so far eluded them.

 

1. His Penchant for Love & Peace

“I have been running my business(Tola Guinea Fowl Ventures) in Shomolu for close to two decades and I have examined and watched our leaders to an extent over the years. I have always maintained that the youths of Shomolu are indeed quite lucky and even blessed to have DULLAR as their LG chairman because I know for a fact that he loves the Youths, children and even our elders as well genuinely. They are lucky because they have a role model as a Chairman, one who practices love in all his doings.”

“Looking back, one of the things that he did in his first days in office is the way he brokered peace amongst the Youths in Shomolu. Like I said I have been here in Shomolu since in 1991 and I witnessed the way and despicable manner our youths here related with another, there was almost no love. It was a issue that caused heartache in the hearts of residents because it affected everyone-parents, business owners, workers, entrepreneurs and even the youths themselves. DULLAR came in and faciliated peace among the youths, outsiders wouldn’t understand the value of this peace I speak about. But indigenes and even those who have traveled out now would understand and still appreciate the importance of the peace DULLAR brought to Shomolu. I am pretty confident that’s why our elders and parents love our Chairman till tomorrow, why he can do not wrong in their eyes; he stopped their children from fighting with one another and empowered them to build a live for themselves. This amazing feat wouldn’t not been possible if not the love of the youths God put in his heart even before he became a leader or politician.”

He then encouraged the youths to emulate this love DULLAR has displayed and practices.

“The love being displayed by DULLAR is inbuilt and is unpretentious. I want our youths to learn and practice this genuine love for one another the way our leader loves us. As a businessman, I improved my understanding and practice of love and patience after emulating him and I can tell you confidently that the love of your fellow man cannot be understated and can never bring you harm. I would be remiss if I didn’t use this opportunity to thank and commend the youths of Shomolu for emulating this love and keeping the peace our leader has facilitated; this is one of the highest honors the youths can give our Chairman and I urge them to keep the peace even after DULLAR has left office. I also plead with them not to only practice this love but to also plant the seed and teach the importance of love of our fellow man to their children. If we all practice genuine love from as a people, from politicians to leaders to businessmen to parents to the youths, to each and every individual, I am sure our country would become better than it is. I urge other leaders and politicians to emulate DULLAR’s love and plead with them to spread love not hate among the youths as they are our future leaders. Let’s us not forget that peace, wealth, prosperity and true happiness abound only where genuine love is found. I pray that every leader, parent and youth who practices and preaches true love be blessed and find favor this year.”

 

2. His Hardworking Attitude

The King of Finger Foods went to reveal the second thing he loves about DULLAR and wants to youth to emulate and practice immediately.

He said:

“Another thing I noticed and admire about DULLAR is his hardworking attitude and I want our youths to pay particular attention to this. He is extremely focused on the future and his focus is selfless and positive-focus differs from person to person and leader to leader but DULLAR’s focus is worth emulating because he’s focused on building a good name and legacy for his children through his actions and hardwork. Going back to his hardworking attitude, regardless of his post and status he’s regularly seen on the streets monitoring things and speaking to residents. Unlike some leaders and politicians who spend the bulk of their terms and time in power sitting and lounging in their air-conditioned office cut off from their people; DULLAR meanwhile is always ready to get on the road and get things happening. He got my attention initially because I noticed he was as tenacious, focused and is a real hands-on boss like myself.”

“Now what made me like and cherish him is the fact that he has made it a point to ensure that the youths of his constituency are hardworking and skilled regardless of their educational status or level. He has tried to imbibe his hardworking attitude in the youths and enable them make a better life for themselves. He has empowered youths by training them in various skills and handiworks, helping to ensure that his youths are not jobless and skill-less at the same time and do not fall into a life of crime. This is quite priceless to me and I respect him greatly for that because he understands that we have to engage our youths, keep them busy and off the streets and goes out of his way to reach out to them because he genuinely loves them”

“I hereby urge the youths to know and remember if they have forgotten that hardwork is Paramount, regardless of your status or post do not stop working hard in whatever you do and I promise you success in life. Your hardwork and tenacity now would determine the kind of name and legacy you will leave behind. A name that would make your generation proud and pave way for them. Just like General Idi Agbon, a man I respect so much even in death. A name that would be respected by people from all works of life.

 

3. His Attitude of Service

The final thing I want youths to emulate from DULLAR is how he serves. Forget the title Chairman, DULLAR is a servant of his people. Permit me to bring in Idi Agbon once more, forget his shortcomings, he understood the meaning of service and getting dirty for one’s work, which was why he was quite invaluable to Buhari. Remember that even when getting a certificate, one more serve the government before being recognized as a bonafide graduate. That underlines the importance of service in life as a person.

Whatever you serve now and get dirty for is what will create a name for you now, a legacy for you later andz make your children proud of your deeds. There a couple of songs from the old days that we have forgotten and these songs are sources of unending, timeless wisdom. These songs helped make us know then that not everyone had to be a doctor, banker or teacher; these songs helped us realize that shame and pride in work is counterproductive. It also made us understand that getting a certificate without having a skill is nothing but folly. I would like to remember a song we sang every day in school during my days then, it made me realize that the money and wealth we are looking for is in that work that we are trying to avoid. It goes like this:

Owe kiko lasi Oko ati ada

Ko e pe oh, ko e pe oh,

Ise agbe ni ise ile wa

Eni ti o ni ise oma jale.

 

Which can be loosely translated to English as:

 

Getting Educated, without having a skill

Is getting incomplete education,

Farming is the job of our land

A jobless man will steal.

I want to youths to read, digest and live this song. This song is almost prophetic, it is almost 50 years old yet all the lines of this song are still valid and true.

You can not achieve anything in this life if you don’t serve and serve diligently. Let’s go take schooling for example, what youths don’t know that you are serving your course and career when you spend time in school. Going to learning a skill from a “Oga”, you can not really learn a skill or handiwork if you don’t serve your Oga and work.

The astute businessman wrapped it up with this epic conclusion, he said:

“Those who know know intimately know that even though I am very well informed politically, I rarely actively participate in politics or single out politicians to laud or criticize. I made an example of DULLAR not because I am politically inclined or have an endgame, I did because of my love of the youths and because we all can attest to the fact that the Chairman is worthy of emulation. Quote me anywhere on this: if a young man or woman practices acquires these attributes listed below such a youth would most assuredly lead a life of posperity and fulfilment.”

1. Love, not just of yourself but of your fellow man.

2. An hardworking, focused and passionate attitude in any chosen career or field.

3. Readiness to serve, as service comes before success.

“Understand young man or lady that having these three attributes is not enough to do it irrespective of how important they are. There are other notable attributes which worthy of mention and paramount in the make up of any young man or woman. They are: Respect, Patience, Long-suffering, Humility, Contentment and Discipline.”

I pray for that our leaders be blessed with wisdom and their hearts filled with love so as to enable them lead us well and ruin our future, I also pray for the youths too with love and wisdom to learn from the mistakes of their elders and leaders and embrace hard-work and discipline to avoid selling their futures in pursuit of fast money.

Celebrating The Inspiring and Impactful Life of Deceased Communications Guru, Emilia Asim-Ita

Boma Al Onyanabo pens a short introduction to a wonderfully written and touching piece by Michael Orodare about our departed friend and gem. Take a moment to read about and pay respect to a truly beautiful soul, Emilia Asim-Ita.

Short Intro by Boma Al Onyanabo:

I was lucky enough to meet the enigmatic Mrs Emilia just once while working on another one of her more notable projects –  Eko United. It was a very short encounter because even then it was obvious she was so busy, I was quite surprised to learn she had been able to squeeze out a couple of minutes for me.

Ostensibly, the major purpose of the meeting was to give me a dressing down for causing so much delay on the project. I was expecting the worst to say the least when she walked into the conference room. The second thought that popped into my head was: “Boma, you don’t deserve to be in the presence of this woman.” The first was a promise to work on becoming a better person generally.

That was the kind of effect she had on people. Watching her made you want to improve yourself, her demeanor and character made you subconsciously give her your love and loyalty. Looking back, I can confidently say that was the most intriguing and lingering first meeting with anyone in my professional life.

The “dressing down” I had dreaded and expected turned out to be more of a pep talk. This wonderful woman never raised her voice or used a cross word all through and she had every right too.

It was then I realized all of us in the conference room and office were extremely lucky to have this gem of a woman in our lives.

I hope her family and loved ones can draw strength and comfort from the fact that she lived such an impactful life and was loved, honored and cherished by almost everyone who knew her. What a woman!

Michael Orodare’s Piece

A motivator, thinker and doer, an igniter of vision, and executor of dreams – those are some of the roles that Emilia Asim-Ita played in the lives of those who crossed her path in the short but impactful time she spent here.

Emilia who passed unexpectedly on Friday January 29, 2021, was an exceptional integrated marketing communication and development expert who was, according to friends and colleagues, extremely passionate about development and helping people actualise their dreams. Many Nigerians were shocked when news of her death broke on Friday January 29, 2021.

“Our captain took a bow,” read a statement from A’Lime Media Limited (AML) a strategic communications agency she founded in 2010.

Her sudden demise came a few days after a successful appendicitis surgery. John Hopkins Medicine says appendicitis, an infection of the appendix, is a medical emergency and most cases happens to people between age 10-30. The U.S National Center for Biotechnology Information named acute appendicitis as the second most common cause of surgical abdominal disease in late adulthood.

After spending a week at a Lagos hospital treating appendicitis, she sadly lost the battle. Born June 10, 1987, in Lagos, Emilia was the last child and only female among the four children of her late father Chief Robert and mother Princess Geraldine Asim-Ita.

She was educated first at Treasure Land Primary School, then at Methodist Girls’ High School, Yaba, Lagos. The same school that produced a long list of trailblazers like H.I.D Awolowo, Ibukun Awosika, the Chairman of First Bank, Folake Solanke, the first female Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), among many others. Emilia left the school in 2003 as the Head Girl who won awards and laurels for the school at state and national competitions.

She was part of the Sun newspaper team at the Mass Communication department of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) where she bagged her B.Sc and M.Sc degrees. From there, Emilia went on to pursue a career in public relations and strategic communications before delving into the development path.

“Many projects across the (Nigerian) media landscape have her input either as a visionary, executor, supporter, encourager or amplifier,” co-founder of RED Media Group, Chude Jideonwo, told Neusroom in a telephone conversation.

She identified her career path quite early and Emilia told The Nigerian Tribune newspaper in 2020 that she started building and growing brands at 16.

“I started professionally in youth marketing and youth development for 7 years (as co-founder of RedSTRAT, now RED Media and The Future Awards, now The Future Africa) and did a stint with media technology before moving to AML (which focused on PR and events only at that time) before consulting on sustainability and CSR for 9 years (co-founding ThistlePraxis) and then back to AML,” she said.

She also had a stint in television production as a Segment Presenter for ‘Mind Your Grammar’ on NTA 2 Channel 5 for a year before hosting and producing ‘YouthTalk with Emilia’ for five years and later ‘Rubbin’ Minds’ on Channels TV.

As a member of the Future Awards team, she was in charge of PR, marketing and public engagement with the media, sponsors, corporate organisations, and government.

Chude, who co-founded The Future Awards Africa with Emilia and Adebola Williams of RED Media, says she was audacious and courageous when engaging potential sponsors,

“no matter who it was”. “If I got a high level contact that was passionate about the Future Awards, I would transfer it to her because she had the skill set and the courage to follow up that conversation,” he says.

It was while doing this that she met the CEO of Core Media, Jide Adediran in 2009. Adediran told Neusroom that Emilia was very industrious and

“her dedication to our project that seeks to rescue Lagos from the shackles of our oppressor can’t be overemphasised. She was a great asset to our project and an inestimable loss.”

Emilia described herself as a woman “who loves to bring ideas to life,” but beyond that, it appears Emilia also found more fulfilment from igniting the dreams of others.

She worked on a lot of media, communication and development projects that dot the Nigerian landscape. Since meeting Emilia in 2013, Ifedayo Adegbenro, founder of AGS Tribe, told Neusroom that Emilia was the only one she could trust to excellently execute projects to her preferred standard.

“She was my go to girl for anything that made me ‘think’,” Ifedayo says. “From government projects to SMEs to multinational projects. She was my backbone. I ran everything by her.”

While Ifedayo was working on the launch of her app, it was Emilia who coined the name ‘HERconomy’ which has been a game changer throughout the campaign of the app. Japhet Omojuwa also told Neusroom that Emilia sent the email that became his first book, ‘Digital: The New Code of Wealth’.

“That makes it impossible for me to forget her,” he says.

Chude also bore testament to Emilia’s penchant for helping others find their feet and turn their dreams to reality. It was one of the rare attributes that endeared her to many.

“She was that rare person who helped people believe that they could create products,” Chude says.

She left the Future Awards team in 2010 to found AML. Chude declined to share the story behind her exit with Neusroom because the three partners agreed to share the story together. Now that Emilia is gone, we may never hear the story.

He says “when she decided she was going to do something else, we had a robust conversation about it and we were very sad to see her follow that path. But as the world can see, she turned out making that path a huge success.”

When she was with the Future Awards team, one of the things her mind was very fantastic with, according to Chude, was the development space.

“She had a very keen understanding and excitement about the development space. So it did make sense that she took a step back to focus on what was a unique passion of hers.

Emilia wasn’t just a dynamic team player. Adediran says she was “a ‘skipo’ (Skipper), and in most times, a technical adviser that never appeared on screen.

For Ifedayo, Emilia was an absolute underdog who was “always happy to be behind the scenes, not interested in the limelight, just EXECUTION

“The beauty of it is that, even though she was a behind the scene person, those who needed to know her did know her, because her work was never not spoken about,” Omojuwa say

But Chude says she was extremely comfortable in front and behind the scenes.

“She was one of those individuals who can find accomplishment and make impacts either in front or behind the scenes.

Until her last days, Emilia was as committed to her Christian faith as she was to her professional career. She was secretary and member of numerous committees on youths and girls affairs as well as secretary of the Lay Preachers’ Association at the Methodist Church of the Trinity, Lagos, her place of worship until her passing.

Olukorede Okpekpe who worked with Emilia for close to three years at AML told Neusroom that she was a lovable, comely, determined, highly professional and ambitious Christian woman.

Her last message in the church was ‘Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled’, but her death has left many hearts troubled as they question why she had to leave so early. Her mother, siblings – Engr. WIlliams, Architect Kingsley, and Pastor Gershom, as well as her uncles, nephews and cousins who survived her are yet to find answers.

She had dreams, a lot of them yet-to-be-accomplished.

Okpekpe told us Emilia was building a world-class communications brand that would cater to any clientele within the communications and development gamut. She also wanted to create a platform where premium Christian contents could be accessed (in the works via Kvibes TV, a faith-based platform).

She wanted to invest in womanhood, create a pool of funds to educate the girl child, among many others.

Emilia was, on Tuesday February 16, 2021, laid at Ebony Vaults, Ikoyi, in Lagos, her final resting place, and will not be able to execute the dreams the way she had helped many to bring their dreams to life. But she left a team at AML expected to execute them. Although they’ll miss “her extra breadth of thought which was always outside the box,” Okpekpe says.

Many agreed that Emilia would be remembered for her rare courage and how she pursued excellence in everything. Omojuwa believes there is a lot she would be remembered for beyond her courage.

“She was a people person. She touched people. They respected her, her craft, persona and ability. There is not much of a legacy if people do not remember that you were first of all a kind person who always got stuff done.”

Recounting one of the times she displayed such courage, Chude says

“the first time I ever quit a job in my life it was Emilia that told me to do it. We had a job together and she told me she was going to match up with the boss who I was extremely afraid of and she was going to tell him that we are not doing this again.”

Okpekpe says “she was a never-ending stream of solutions to all she encountered and she was constantly striving to add value.”

Whether it was publishing, broadcasting, public relations, integrated marketing, public engagement, hosting events, mentoring young people eyeing a career in comms., planning and successfully executing media and communications campaigns, Emilia did it all in just a few years.

Emilia Effioawan Asim-Ita may have left early at 33, but in those short years, she served an extraordinary life and many agree that she was an unending stream of solutions to all who encountered her.

“Farmers Are Not Slaves!” King of Finger Foods, Atolagbe Animashaun Talks Farming And Youth

Atolagbe Animashaun, King of Finger Foods and CEO of Tola GuineaFowl Ventures, who runs the most popular grilled foods spot in Lagos-has pleaded with the Government to add Practical Farming as a compulsory subject in Junior and Secondary Schools across the country.

 

The King of Finger Foods, as he fondly called, made his advice to the Federal Government public in a recent chat with Journalists. Atolagbe Animashuan runs Tola Guinea Fowl Ventures, the oldest and most trusted grilling service company in Lagos and over the past couple of years has emerged as one of the major players when it comes to events in Nigeria. His most popular product, the Roasted and Peppered Guinea Fowl(awo) has been a favorite of the high and mighty for the past 15 years. His skill and consistency over the past 19 years since he launched has made him and his brand get and many partnerships with the biggest Event Planners in Nigeria.

Mr Atolagbe Animashuan is very passionate about farming and agriculture and is quite saddened by the attitude of today’s generation of youth’s attitude towards farming. He feels something has to been done about that mindset of the youths towards a very profitable and vital occupation – Farming. Hence he has called for a strategic and systematic re-oreintation of the youths of a country.

He commended the efforts of the government over the past couple of years towards the sensitization of the Nigerian youth about the promise, importance and honor involved in farming. The government made grants, loans, material, land all available to budding young farmers, the problem is that the youths out there now see Farming as a dirty, if not shameful job.

 

He urged the government has to plant the seed for the love of farming in their minds of the next generation of Nigerian youths early on. These little ones will be taught that a Farmer is as important as a Doctor, Engineer, Teacher, Soldier or President.

He said:

“Having thought about this for quite a while now, I am very sure that a sure fire way to get more youths interested in farming is to start at a very early age. When was the last time you asked a teen-ager or child for his preferred future occupation and heard “I want to be a Farmer”, they will be made to understand that farming is every bit as vital and profitable as medicine or entertainment.

He has asks the Government to create a new compulsory subject for all secondary pupils tagged PRACTICAL FARMING. This new subject would be compulsory for all children in Junior and Senior secondary schools across the country.

We have to create a generation of young, educated and passionate youths who are genuinely interested about farming. We can take a leaf from the Chinese, their young are taught about technology at a very age. We all know how that alone has helped boost the Chinese economy.

China gives their children technological advancement
Isreal gives their children military training
Let Nigeria give it children Farming, they will thank us later. ”

The staunch farming enthusiast and King of Finger Foods went on to highlight some unbelievable and real effects on getting the younger generation involved in farming:

1. Farming will teach the next generation about the importance of hard work and farmers to the world at a very young age.

2. Crime rates would reduce significantly if more of next generation of youths went into farming.

3. Unemployment rates would plunge as these budding farmers become self employed.

 

We as a nation have to work together if we are to utilize the agricultural resources of our country. We have to recognize that farmers are not slaves but an important part of our society and economy.

 

If everybody abandons farming and refuses to farm, where would food come from; the rich, powerful, wise and skilled all need the farmer.

We have a very blessed and fertile land that was a gift from God and we are not utilizing it not yet enough. Encouraging the youth to become involved in farming will be very beneficial to the economy and country. The government and the people have to do more to create and increase the awareness and interest in farming.

In the days of our great, grand fathers, if they wanted to reward a young man for pleasing them or doing something commendable. They didn’t give that young man money, wife or food, they would give him a land to begin farming. And over time that young man would begin successful.

 

The King of Finger Foods rounded up with this:

Farming is a very profitable business, there can be 100 farmers in a town and all of them would be very well. A farmer is as smart as a doctor or engineer or teacher or banker, the youth need to take pride in farming and understand that the money and success they are looking for is in the very work they are avoiding. Farming has always and would always been one of the best legacies to leave behind, we forget that farming was once the only occupation and job in the world. Everything came from FARMING!

Introducing Tola Guinea Fowl Ventures, the Roast Birds Company of Choice For Socialites

Many a party goer will attest to the fact that Roast Birds and Small Chops have become a crucial part of menus for almost any event or occasion. Some will even go as far as saying a menu is not complete if there is no small chops and/or roast birds on it.

The popularity and demand for roast birds and small chops have directly resulted in the birth and formation of brands who provide these much asked for delicacies. These brands are a dime a dozen these days as almost every Tom, Dick and Harry claims to be expert at roasting birds.

However, one brand has risen above all others by setting a standard that is focused mainly on three key pillars which are Speed, Constant Quality and Total Customer Satisfaction. Tola Guinea Fowl Ventures is head and shoulders above it’s competition.

Tola Guinea Fowl Ventures was established way back in 1991 by TOLA ANIMASHAUN who initially started roasting birds as a hobby. He started taking the entire thing seriously the following year when he kept getting positive feedback from old clients and referrals.

Now, Tola Guinea Fowl Ventures is arguably the most in demand roast birds and small chops brand in Lagos. Their offices are located in Shomolu but they are so good and highly regarded that they get orders from all over Lagos, and I really mean all over Lagos.

On a regular and even slow day at Tola Guinea Fowl ventures they receive nothing less than 25 orders while on a very busy day that number skyrockets to as much as 40, sometimes more. What’s more, that’s just for weekdays. On a slow weekend they get nothing less than 150 orders from different clients and on busy weekends they are swarmed with over 400 orders.

The General Manager and Head of Operations of Toal Guinea Fowl, Mr Ahmed Aderinwale, when questioned about the secret of their success and impressive growth had this to say:

“To be honest we really owe it all to our customers-new and old alike-the love and loyalty they show us is just simply amazing. We have scores of customers who patronize us daily and weekly without fail. Also, I must commend our CEO and leader, Mr Tola Adigun; who continues to remind us daily that we must put the customers first and ensure they are satisfied every single time they come to us. Really we must attribute our success to our CEO and customers!”

He further added that the brand was planning something big for all their customers this Christmas. He revealed:

“I can’t let the cat out of the bag just yet but we are ‘cooking’ up something special for our customers, that’s all I really can say now. ” He concluded.

We managed to track down an active client of theirs who is actually a very renowned Event planner and organizer and one of Tola Guinea Fowl Venture’s oldest clients. Unfortunately she only agreed to speak to us under the cover of anonymity.

“I met Tola himself at an event I organized way back in 2004, I outsourced the small chops and roast food contract and he was selected. I had absolutely no influence on the selection process and had never heard of him or his brand before that fateful day, though I had full confidence in my consultant.

Well, he didn’t take him very long to begin impressing me; the very first thing that made me study him and his team a little bit more closely was the quality of their service. Particularly the way Tola himself went about his business, he served and presented his delicacies to each guest as one might serve Royalty. A lot of guests were quite taken with him and when they finally took a bite from their platters they found even more reason to love him.”

She went on:

“The birds were all well roasted and expertly spiced and the chops were a taste of heaven. Right there in front of me guests were already asking for his number. To cut a long story short; I have been using him for all my events since then and over the years we have even become close friends, as he is very honest and sincere with every single one of his clients. I myself have personally recommended him to various friends and colleagues alike and I have never been disappointed or put to shame as they always deliver on time.”

 

She rounded up with:

“In all these years I sincerely can’t remember an occasion where I was let down, forced to loose my temper or even get anxious about getting my orders and brand. I think this says a lot about him and his brand.”

Well, there you have it, there are two morals to this story-the first is hardwork, consistency and a real passion for you do are all important qualities when chasing successful in business and in everything one does. And the second one is: when you need expertly prepared roast birds and small chops, you’d better call Tola Guinea Fowl ventures.

Introducing Tola Guinea Fowl Ventures, the Roast Birds Company of Choice For Socialites

Many a party goer will attest to the fact that Roast Birds and Small Chops have become a crucial part of menus for almost any event or occasion. Some will even go as far as saying a menu is not complete if there is no small chops and/or roast birds on it.

The popularity and demand for roast birds and small chops have directly resulted in the birth and formation of brands who provide these much asked for delicacies. These brands are a dime a dozen these days as almost every Tom, Dick and Harry claims to be expert at roasting birds.

However, one brand has risen above all others by setting a standard that is focused mainly on three key pillars which are Speed, Constant Quality and Total Customer Satisfaction. Tola Guinea Fowl Ventures is head and shoulders above it’s competition.

Tola Guinea Fowl Ventures was established way back in 1991 by Tola Adigun who initially started roasting birds as a hobby. He started taking the entire thing seriously the following year when he kept getting positive feedback from old clients and referrals.

Now, Tola Guinea Fowl Ventures is arguably the most in demand roast birds and small chops brand in Lagos. Their offices are located in Shomolu but they are so good and highly regarded that they get orders from all over Lagos, and I really mean all over Lagos.

On a regular and even slow day at Tola Guinea Fowl ventures they receive nothing less than 25 orders while on a very busy day that number skyrockets to as much as 40, sometimes more. What’s more, that’s just for weekdays. On a slow weekend they get nothing less than 150 orders from different clients and on busy weekends they are swarmed with over 400 orders.

The General Manager and Head of Operations of Toal Guinea Fowl, Mr Ahmed Aderinwale, when questioned about the secret of their success and impressive growth had this to say:

“To be honest we really owe it all to our customers-new and old alike-the love and loyalty they show us is just simply amazing. We have scores of customers who patronize us daily and weekly without fail. Also, I must commend our CEO and leader, Mr Tola Adigun; who continues to remind us daily that we must put the customers first and ensure they are satisfied every single time they come to us. Really we must attribute our success to our CEO and customers!”

He further added that the brand was planning something big for all their customers this Christmas. He revealed:

“I can’t let the cat out of the bag just yet but we are ‘cooking’ up something special for our customers, that’s all I really can say now. ” He concluded.

Nearly 50 People Contract Coronavirus After Attending Event a Church

 

According to the state ‘s highest health official, three persons were diagnosed with Covid-19 and 46 others contracted the coronavirus during a communion service at a church in a small town in Maine.

The Maine Center for Disease Control & Prevention Director Dr. Nirav Shah said at a news conference Thursday that a total of 49 cases have been related to an outbreak at the Brooks Pentecostal Church in Waldo County.

“Over the next few days, we expect that number to rise,” Shah said.

The Lighthouse Christian Academy, a church-affiliated school on their land in the town of Brooks, is involved with seven of the incidents.

On Facebook, the pastor of the church shared his sorrow about the epidemic.

Only M.W. Before the first positive result was released, Shaw added that church leaders were taking quarantine procedures.

“Though the origin of the virus is unclear, we will be addressing all recommendations and guidelines provided to us by the CDC,” Shaw wrote. “Our church will be addressing our continuity of worship in a safe and orderly manner.”

Bayview Manor, a residential care facility in nearby Searsport, also has one case connected to the outbreak, Shah said. The individual is a staff member and investigators are trying to determine whether there has been virus transmission at the facility.
Chad Cloutier, CEO of facility operator DLTC Healthcare, denied that the case was related to the outbreak and said that the facility had tested all residents and staff Sunday, immediately after learning an employee had tested positive. All results came back negative, Cloutier said.

10 Things President Buhari Said In Live Broadcast On EndSARS Protest

 

President Muhammadu Buhari finally addressed the nation on Thursday night about the ongoing #EndSARS protests all over the country.

Below are 10 things the President said tonight;

1. HIJACKING OF #ENDSARS PROTESTS

The president said; “It has become necessary for me to address you having heard from many concerned Nigerians and having concluded a meeting with all the Security Chiefs.”

“I must warn those who have hijacked and misdirected the initial, genuine and well – intended protest of some of our youths in parts of the country, against the excesses of some members of the now disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).”

2. PROTESTS ARE A FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN RIGHT

President Buhari said; “On Monday 12th October, I acknowledged the genuine concerns and agitations of members of the public regarding the excessive use of force by some members of SARS.”

“The choice to demonstrate peacefully is a fundamental right of citizens as enshrined in Section 40 of our Constitution and other enactments; but this right to protest also imposes on the demonstrators the responsibility to respect the rights of other citizens, and the necessity to operate within the law.”

3. #EndSARS PROTESTERS DEMANDS

The President disclosed: “As a democratic government, we listened to, and carefully evaluated the five-point demands of the protesters. And, having accepted them, we immediately scrapped SARS, and put measures in place to address the other demands of our youth.”

“”On approving the termination of SARS, I already made it clear that it was in line with our commitment to the implementation of extensive Police reforms.”

4. CRIMES COMMITTED IN THE NAME OF #EndSARS

President Buhari said: “Sadly, the promptness with which we have acted seemed to have been misconstrued as a sign of weakness and twisted by some for their selfish unpatriotic interests.”

“The result of this is clear to all observers: human lives have been lost; acts of sexual violence have been reported; two major correctional facilities were attacked and convicts freed; public and private properties completely destroyed or vandalised; the sanctity of the Palace of a Peace Maker, the Oba of Lagos has been violated. So-called protesters have invaded an International Airport and in the process disrupted the travel plans of fellow Nigerians and our visitors.”

“All these executed in the name of the ENDSARS protests. I am indeed deeply pained that innocent lives have been lost. These tragedies are uncalled for and unnecessary. Certainly, there is no way whatsoever to connect these bad acts to legitimate expression of grievance of the youth of our country.”

5. FAKE NEWS

The President lamented: “The spreading of deliberate falsehood and misinformation through the social media in particular, that this government is oblivious to the pains and plight of its citizens is a ploy to mislead the unwary within and outside Nigeria into unfair judgement and disruptive behaviour.”

“On the contrary, both our deeds and words have shown how committed this administration has been to the wellbeing and welfare of citizens, even with the steadily dwindling revenues, and the added responsibilities and restrictions due to the Coronavirus pandemic.”

6. GOVERNMENT INITIATIVES FOR YOUTHS

The President said: “Government has put in place measures and initiatives principally targeted at youths, women and the most vulnerable groups in our society. These included our broad plan to lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in the next 10 years; the creation of N75 billion National Youth Investment Fund to provide opportunities for the youths and the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) Survival Fund, through which government is:

a. paying three months salaries of the staff of 100,000 micro, small – and medium – enterprises,

b. paying for the registration of 250,000 businesses at the Corporate Affairs Commission,

c. giving a grant of N30,000 to 100,000 artisans; and

d. guaranteeing market for the products of traders.

“These are in addition to many other initiatives such as;

a. Farmermoni,

b. Tradermoni,

c. Marketmoni,

d. N-Power,

e. N-Tech and

f. N-Agro.

“No Nigerian Government in the past has methodically and seriously approached poverty-alleviation like we have done.”

7. POLICE WELFARE/REFORM

Speaking on Police reform, President Buhari said: “With regard to the welfare of police personnel, the National Salaries, Income and Wages Commission has been directed to expedite action on the finalization of the new salary structure of members of the Nigeria Police Force. The emoluments of other paramilitary services are also being reviewed upwards.”

“In order to underscore the importance of education in preparing youths for the future, this administration has come up with a new salary structure and other incentives for our teachers.”

8. COMMITMENT TO NIGERIA’S UNITY

President Buhari said; “Let me at this point reaffirm the Federal Government’s commitment to preserving the unity of this country. We will continue to improve good governance and our democratic process, including through sustained engagement.”

“We shall continue to ensure that liberty and freedom, as well as the fundamental rights of all citizens are protected.”

9. INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY

The President said: “To our neighbours in particular, and members of the international community, many of whom have expressed concern about the ongoing development in Nigeria, we thank you and urge you all to seek to know all the facts available before taking a position or rushing to judgment and making hasty pronouncements.”

“In the circumstances, I would like to appeal to protesters to note and take advantage of the various well-thought-out initiatives of this administration designed to make their lives better and more meaningful, and resist the temptation of being used by some subversive elements to cause chaos with the aim of truncating our nascent democracy.”

10. END THE PROTESTS

The president said: “I therefore call on our youths to discontinue the street protests and constructively engage government in finding solutions. Your voice has been heard loud and clear and we are responding.”

“And I call on all Nigerians to go about their normal businesses, and enjoin security agencies to protect lives and properties of all law abiding citizens without doing harm to those they are meant to protect. Let me pay tribute to officers of the Nigeria Police Force who have tragically lost their lives in the line of duty.”
