At the meeting with Thai officials, Mrs. Adikwe, the Coordinator of UYOTA in her opening speech thanked the officials for the opportunity and informed the gathering of the rich and massive agricultural potentials in Nigeria and urged them to take advantage and invest in Nigeria.

Rubbish. Seeking political relevance. Shouldn't his team have been you agriculturally inclined entrepreneurs? That's why Nigeria will never develop. What has the illiterate royal fathers have to do with modern day farming or agriculture?

Cheap publicity stunts!If you bought or are planning to buy a landed property with his company (Livelihood Homes Limited) for your own good verify the true ownership of the property with the ministry of lands. It doesn't matter what document his company presents you with. It's a pity that in this day and age people make such investments without due diligence on their part. I was informed at the ministry of Lands that the property he's selling in Ibeju-lekki (and possibly other locations) are lands committed to Lagos State government. I am afraid unsuspecting real-estate investors in Lagos will wake up some day to be sorely disappointed from the activities of these marauders.

But I would say his intentions might be different judging from his philanthropic work recently to people and during one of his programs I saw on TV he made mention of meeting people to help youth in developing agricultural produce in Nigeria so I think we shouldn't axe him yet

This is highly commendable. Dr. Kelly's philantropy is second to none in dis generation. I make bold to say i've benefitted from his gesture.

In our world where public image has become more important than moral values like integrity, honesty and uprightness, it is very easy to draw public sympathy with cheap acts like this. I don't know the man very closely but I can tell he understands what putting yourself in the eyes and ears of the public can do to a business. He understands the power of relentless advertising. He would take his publicity to the moon if there are people there to buy from him. In the thick of Lagos traffic he hurls nearly his entire staff to Wazobia FM every working day of the week. From personal interaction with some of them, they don't even like the experience but he does it regardless. Don't get deceived. A man who has no integrity in his personal business will always be that way in other areas of his life. A rat will always be a rat, in the hole or even in a palace. I smell a bigger agenda, possibly political. But before you lets things like this draw you in, try to find out about his business dealings and how he treats his staff.

A man who understands his country is busy working his way to a political office and you are here wasting your better judgement. A man who understands the power of "stomach infrastructure" in a country where people are declared righteous and for-the-people if "you go fit shake body". It shows our mentality as Africans. Any public display of gestures like this people hand the hooligan the man-of-the-year trophy. I don't see any need for the senseless publicity jingoism this guy has been paying Linda for. Oga, if you want to do something good, you can actually do it out of public eye. A lot of well-meaning Nigerians do that and the sky hasn't fallen. Something (political) is definitely in the ovens! I smell political interest. Be on the look-out!

In a country where company executives sponsor celebrities to lush lifestyle while at the backend they are owing months and months of salary and can hardly cater to staff welfare, news like this is a complete turn off!!!
