How not to be proud on account of your achievements.
It is a long story; but the long and short of it is that you never know who you will meet on your way down. My friend, the Akirogun of the Egbas, Olusegun Osoba is special. We were not friends at first, but through my long lasting friend Eddie Kola Aderinokun. Akirogun will defend my position and will put things my way. When he offered me the chairmanship of Abeokuta North Local Government, I had had no experience of it.
I do not know why I deserve his special care. May he live long! I wish I knew where Chief Emiola Atanda is now. He was editor of the Tribune in I heard he was a professor of communication in Ife or thereabout. He was way up my elder. He treated me well and I learned some of his editorial styles in my craft.

Eddie Aderinokun is my lifelong friend. We started from secondary school in Abeokuta and we wanted to go into journalism together. I started at the Daily Express a month ahead of him and we have been inseparable. Eddie would do anything possible for me. I stayed with him at Yaba and he visited me in Stockholm. I became friends with Dayo Duyile and we have been friends ever since. It was Dayo who dragged me to lecture at the NIJ.
I can go on and on about my friends because they bunch with me, but there are some special friends I cannot stop singing about-my wife and children. They go with me through rain or shine. My wife -Silifat Modupeola Animasaun-my wife of 54 years and my children.
The hallmark of my life has been its contentment.
I have been content with life from my early years. I have been satisfied with it and I take whatever comes to me. Delegates have been walking around the hall trying to sell their positions to others. Sergeant Awuse was begged by the Chairman to allow the leadership resolve the issue. The Chairman suggested that the Consensus Building Committee be given more time to get back to their meeting and attempt to resolve the pending issue. Nasir Kura has been on his feet, opposing any move by the leadership to resolve the logjam.
Kumasi said the meeting was unable to resolve the issues in dispute and advised the conference not to accept any report presented on the matter. It seems the Conference is poised to take a decision on the matter given the body language of the leadership.
The Deputy Chairman had sought for a written report of the Consensus Building Committee, adding that the Conference would not take an oral report by the committee.
Tension has started building up as the Conference is about taking the report of the Committee, considered to be vital in resolving the logjam on the derivation principle to be adopted.

Ibrahim Kimasi was given the opportunity to address the Conference on what they have resolved. The procedure to prescribe minimum standards of education at all levels was voted to be retained in the exclusive list.
Registration of business name was voted to be retained in the exclusive list. The regulation of political parties was voted to be retained in the exclusive list. Members of the Consensus Building Group are returning to the plenary. Raymong Dokpesi, Ike Nwachukwu.
Castration – Why do they do that?
The Conference voted against moving Insurance to the concurrent list. It also voted against the movement of stamp duties to the concurrent legislative list.
The conference voted against moving marriages to the concurrent list. The Conference could not vote on the recommendation for the division of public revenue between states and the federal government and among the states to be moved to the concurrent list.
Effect of castration on meat quality in Piemontese cattle.
The Chair sought the advice of legal practitioners in the chamber. Femi Falana insisted that the matter be left in the exclusive list, adding that where there was a conflict between states, only the Federal Government could resolve it.
He argued that since there are three recommendations on the formula, that voting on the issue be dropped for the time being while the Conference proceeded to vote on other recommendations of the Committee. A delegate from Kogi called for voting to be carried out on two recommendations, noting that the third recommendation was merely a repetition. The leadership has gone into a brief consultation on the table.
The Chair and the deputy Chair are discussing possible solutions to the problem. Deputy Chair has asked that the Conference moved to vote on other matters until it was convenient. The Conference voted to retain the Prisons in the concurrent list.
He said that the Conference will go ahead to vote.Dont jealous me - Meet the adebanjos leaked! lol
He, however, said that what will be done by the Conference would serve as recommendations to the government which cannot come into effect until adopted by the government. The three recommendations for sharing revenue in the country were read out to the house by Mr.
Akinyemi but it seems the delegates are not ready to take on the matter. The leadership went into a brief consultation in a bid to resolve the seeming logjam.
This is happening just as delegates engage each other on heated argument from all parts of the chamber. The Conference has not been able to take a position on this matter because an earlier report submitted by the Committee on Finance had recommended that solid minerals be moved to the concurrent list and the conference had adopted it.
It also voted to remove public holidays from the exclusive list to the concurrent list. Their reasons include that the committee is against the rules of engagement of the confab. He believes the mini-committee does not represent every one in the conference hence, it is null and void. The chairman however rose in defence of the elders' forum. He said it is not illegal for any group to reach an a greement on-behalf of the delegate is their motive is to support the national conference.
The Confab therefore is suspended for on hour and resumes at Recall that deliberations on this report was suspended earlier this week. He is doing so now. Hassan Adamu from Adamawa State said he hoped that when the conclusion of the Conference would be implemented. He said the Conference should strongly appeal to the president not to push the recommendations of the Conference aside because the Conference is not like the previous ones. He said it is difficult to have members to agree on issues that will unite Nigerians and appealed to the National Assembly not to throw away the Conference report because Nigerians are waiting.
Aisha Ismail, a former Women Affairs Minister agreed that the report should be in three segment and attach the strategy of implementation.
