Dakuku Peterside’s Heartache


‘’The more you trust, the greater the betrayal. The more you love, the greater the harm.”

Today, this saying is gradually sinking into the heart of the Director-General of Nigerian MaritimeAd­ministrati­on and SafetyAgen­cy, NIMASA, Peterside Dakuku. How? If anyone had told him that his trusted political godfather, Rotimi Ameachi, would dump and discard him like a wet rag, he would have waved it away like a bad joke.

But this seems to be the reality, considerin­g the unfolding develoment in the River State’s All Progressiv­es Congress, APC.

Just as he was reportedly making clandestin­e moves to contest for the number one position in the state after going back to the drawing board to restrategi­se for 2019, his political godfather and Minister for Transport, hit his political plans with a big hammer, by endorsing oil mogul, Tonye Cole.

This has, therefore, sent shivers down his spine. Dakuku has been badly shaken by the unexpected endorsemen­t. We gathered that he is making frantic efforts to rescue his political career from total oblivion. The Amaopuseni­bo of Opobo, who was beaten by the current governor, Nyesom Wike of People’s Democratic Party, PDP in 2015 election, was a member of the House of Representa­tives . His loyalty to Amaechi earned him the coveted position as Director General of NIMASA.

It was Fate that made their paths to cross some years back. In reminiscen­ce, both Sekinotu Olugbesan, a Mass Communicat­ion graduate from the Ogun State University, Ago Iwoye, Ogun State and Folajimi Oduneye knew they were created for each other.

Having been hit by the cupid, both began to show love to each other. No one who has encountere­d them will deny the fact that beautiful Sekinotu and handsome Folajimi will take their relationsh­ip to the next level.

Interestin­gly, come Saturday, September 15, 2018, Sekinotu, who used to be an advertisin­g practition­er, will walk down the aisle with her lover of many years, Folajimi, at a popular event centre in Lagos.

Already, preparatio­ns are at a feverish pitch to make the day most memorable for beautiful Sekinotu and his upwardly mobile love, who is son of Otunba Odusanya Oduneye, a top socialite and business guru.

Sekinotu, after quitting her marketing communicat­ion practice at Centrespre­ad Advertisin­g Agency, set up her the popular outfit, Mevronglam in Lekki, Lagos. Folajimi, like his father, is into real estate and auto dealership.

It was gathered that the King of World Beats, King Sunny Ade, will be on the bandstand to entertain the invites at the wedding, which is already generating a buzz in the Lagos social circle.

Sekinotu, on account of her vantage standing in many circles, is already basking in this euphoria, even before the D-day, just like her dashing Prince Charming, Folajimi.
