Political appointees like Prince Hadi Sani are few and far between. The Special Assistant to the Ogun state Governor on Inter Ethnic Affairs has made telling contributions to the maintenance of peaceful coexistence especially between the Arewa Community and other ethinc groups in the state.
Sani who has made it his personal mission to replicate the good works of the Governor, at the grassroots, especially in the Hausa Community has received many plaudits for facilitating many development projects for the Arewa Community.
According to the United Nations Children’s Funds, Nigeria has the highest rate of Out of School Children, with about 18.5 million children, the majority of whom are girls, lacking access to education.
Although Nigeria has experienced a significant expansion in access to education during the last few decades, it still has the highest number of out-of-school children in the world.”
It is this worrying statistic and the attendant effect on security and peaceful coexistence that informed the decision of Sani to engage the Children in his locality productively.
The Special Assistant who commissioned some projects in the Arewa Community in Sabo, under Abeokuta North Local government, has made education the center of his empowerment programe.
As an enlightened man who understands that all hands are needed on deck to improve the standard of education, as well as ensure that more Children are back to School, Hadi Sani has facilitated projects that will directly impact over 500 Children in the Sabo Community.
The facilities will improve learning and also serve as an alternative for Children whose parents cannot give them access to education.
Watch Video Below:-
Asides from providing facilities for the Children, Hadi Sani is also sponsoring many out of school Children, to ensure they have access to private education, especially after school tutorials.
At a gathering of community members and leaders, as well as APC Leaders, including Chairman of the Party in Abeokuta North LG, Alhaja Faidat Sarumi Akintunde as well as the Governor’s Liaison Officer, Hon. Wale Bello, the message was clear, Hadi Sani is an asset in the administration of Governor Dapo Abiodun.
The projects which were initiated within two years of his appointment, have now been completed and commissioned.
Some of these projects include the renovation and provision of furniture for Sabo Central Mosque Islamic School; renovation of Sheik Adam Islamic School in Sabo; renovation of Fili Mosque which also serves as a learning facility for adults; floor tiling of Ahul Sunnah Mosque in Sabo which is used for both academic and religious purposes.
Other projects were the fencing of the Transformer in Sabo Community, which helps shield the transformer from any theft, helps keep it safe and in good working condition.
Sani also donated educational materials like School Bags and Sports Kits to Pupils across the Arewa Community.
Hadi Sani who spoke with us after the event, appealed to the Community leaders and members to ensure the facilities are well used and maintained.
Sani noted that education is the best way to keep Children engaged and maximize their potentials. He maintained his resolve to be a major contributor to the maintenance of peace in the state, through initiatives such as this.
He particularly lauded the Ogun state Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun for creating an enabling environment for his ideas and inputs to thrive. He noted that the Governor’s efforts in unifying the people, despite their ethnic backgrounds is the reason why the state has remained peaceful.
Hon. Bello who was a Special Guest at the event commended Hadi Sani for setting the pace for other appointees in the administration of Prince Dapo Abiodun.
Others who spoke with us urged the governor to continue his support for the Arewa community, stressing that such gestures would mark his administration out as a successful one.

Black Panther Shares 5 Connections And Influences With Nigeria
There have been many conversations about Black Panther Wakanda Forever since its theatrical release.
The film has provided endless conversation opportunities, from discussions about its themes and tropes to its connection to Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the homages it makes to African cultures to discussions about the movie’s overall message.
It is an eye-opener for any African to see the cinemas and not the brutality that has been shown on the silver screen.
For a long time, Hollywood has forced the world to believe that western history is all it has ever told. This is sometimes seen in the themes of online casino games NetBet. When Hollywood attempts to reach other cultures, these projects are plagued with misrepresentation or exaggerated depravity, or understated decency.
Black Panther is one exception that shows the creative side of Africa, which has been sorely misrepresented by the media.
The movie depicts a fictional kingdom called Wakanda, which is made up of many African tribes with their own identities. Everything, from music and costume to set design and language, has strong African influences.
Here are five connections that Black Panther shares Nigerian influence and connections:-
Mbaku’s accent: In an interview with Winston Duke, the actor playing M’Baku (the leader of Jabari tribe), the actor admitted that he had taken his accent inspiration from the Igbo tribe of Nigeria. He also mentioned that the Igbo tribe had a strong influence on the Jabaris.
Kokou: This Yoruba god is one of the African gods mentioned in the movie. Kokou, a fearsome warrior deity of the Yoruba faith found in West Africa’s Benin, is mentioned. This deity is the only non-Egyptian one mentioned in the movie.
General Okoye: While the African characters of the movie are from Wakanda but they still have names that resemble actual African names.
General Okoye, an Igbo name, can be translated to mean “born on Oye market days”. Oye, or Orie, in some Igbo languages, is one of four market days that make the Igbo calendar. It also includes Eke, Afor and Nkwo.
Inscriptions by Nsibidi: Just like the costumes and names in Black Panther, the set design is based on real African cultures.
One particular Wakanda text, found in the movie’s throne room, has inscriptions from Nigeria’s Southeast region. The cross-River state is where the origins of the Nsibidi inscriptions are.
Playlist: The original Black Panther installment featured a playlist created exclusively by Kendrick Lamar.
Black Panther 2’s playlist featured songs by many Nigerian artists including Tems, Rema, and Fat Nwigwe.
