Dangote’s plot against Gov Fashola.

There appears to be no let up in the titanic battle between frontline Nigerian billionaires, Femi Otedola and Aliko Dangote, with the sensational disclosure by Otedola that his former ally turned foe, was involved in a high-level plot to scuttle Action Congress’s (AC) victory in the governorship election in Lagos State in 2007.
The April 21 election brought Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola to office.

Fashola is my Governor. He has wiped away my tears.

Peter Fregene, or the 'Flying Cat' as he was known during his playing career, is a joyous man after doctors told him he will be able to walk again after he underwent a spinal cord operation in Lagos.

"The doctors have given me a 75 per cent chance to walk again in two, three years' time," said Fregene, whose international career spanned from 1966 to 1983.

The acrobatic goalkeeper, who featured for Nigeria at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico and the 1982 Africa Cup of Nations in Libya, was abandoned to his fate for almost eight years before Lagos State Governor and a Manchester United fan, Babatunde Raji Fashola, came to his rescue.

"Fashola is my Governor. He has wiped away my tears when even the Nigeria Football Federation could not assist me," said Fregene.
