The palace used by the late Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuwade Olubuse is shut and will not be opened until a replacement has been named and decorated, PM News correspondent gathered.

Attempt by our correspondent to get the kingmakers to list the possible successors to Oba Sijuwade Olubuse proved futile as they said they could not reveal such information.

Below is the picture of ‘Ile Oodua’ the palace of the next Ooni of Ife.

N59bn Abuja Airport Expressway Becoming A Death Trap http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/2015/08/13/n59bn-abuja-airport-expressway-becoming-a-death-trap/ http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/2015/08/13/n59bn-abuja-airport-expressway-becoming-a-death-trap/#comments Thu, 13 Aug 2015 11:32:16 +0000 http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/?p=249582 Femi Ipaye/ Abuja

The 10-lane Abuja Airport Expressway commissioned by former President Goodluck Jonathan at the twilight of his administration on 7, May 2015, is gradually giving way, and becoming a death trap for road users.

Julius Berger was awarded N59 billion in 2009 for the expansion of the road from four to 10 lanes by the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) and the Federal Capital Development Agency (FCDA).

Barely three months after its formal commissioning by Jonathan, the road is gradually giving way with erosion creating huge craters at the shoulders while potholes are emerging at different points of the expressway.
