JJC Skillz took to his official instagram page to announce the separation from Funke Akindele. Read the statement Below:
Dear Friends and family I need to let you know that Funke and I have separated. While it lasted we shared a lot of things together and have created 2 beautiful children. The last two years have been extremely difficult for us. I know I have tried my best to fix things but I believe it is beyond repair now.
3 months ago and at Funkes insistence I moved out of the house and apart from AMVCA have not been able to get Funke to sit down in an amicable manner to discuss the future of our relationship. I’m making this announcement so that the public is clear that we both are pursuing separate lives. We still have issues that need to be addressed such as the custody and wellbeing of our children which is paramount as well as business interests which need to be disentangled but I have no doubt that these will be resolved one way or the other.
Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has invited Organised Labour in the State to a meeting, today, Wednesday to resolve the industrial action embarked upon by government workers.
The meeting is expected to discuss all issues contained in the list of grievances raised by the workers for embarking on the indefinite strike action.
A statement in Abeokuta on Tuesday by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Alhaji Abdulwaheed Odusile, said the Governor is taking personal charge of resolving the grouse of the workers as part of his personal and Administration’s commitment to the welfare and wellbeing of workers in Ogun State, which has been amply demonstrated since the inception of the Administration.
“I am personally committed to ensuring an improved welfare of workers in Ogun State and will do all that is necessary to achieve this”, the statement quoted the governor as saying, adding that: “this is a workers’ friendly Administration and will remain so under my watch”.
“One of the first duties I performed on my first day at work as the Governor on May 30, 2019 was to approve the immediate payment of salaries of our workers, which had not been paid by the immediate past Administration until then. I also made a vow that salaries of workers in the State will be paid on or before the end of each month. And we have been doing that religiously ever since.
“Even in the face of dwindling resources, rising needs and this strike, the salaries are being remitted. I am sure they will start receiving bank credit alerts in the next 24 hours for the month of June. We are one of the few States in the country not owing workers salary and paying as and when due”, the statement quoted the Governor as saying.
It further explained that the whatever issues being raised by the aggrieved workers would be expeditiously addressed.
“Most of their complaints were inherited from the previous Administrations, but as a responsive and responsible Government, we are tackling them one after the other, even as we are being hampered by paucity of funds.
“The money accruable to us from the Federation Account and sundry sources have been dwindling for a long time now and this is affecting our ability to meet some of our obligations but even at that we have been prioritising the interests of our workforce”, Governor Abiodun added.
He assured the workers that he would do everything within available means to address issues of concern to the workers, whilst urging them to show understanding with the Government and call off the strike.

Ekiti State civil servants have given the state government 21 days within which to pay backlogs of their arrears or risk industrial action.
They said that non-payment of the entitlements had made life unbearable for them in the face of the present harsh economic realities.
The workers, under the aegis of Trade Union Congress, also bemoaned the incessant kidnappings in the state in recent times and charged the government and security agencies “to quickly rise to the challenge and nip it in the bud.”
In a communiqué signed by TUC State Chairman, Sola Adigun, and Secretary, Yomi Peters, at the end of its meeting, the body said Governor Kayode Fayemi promised to offset all arrears of payment before the expiration of his tenure in October, noting that he still had the opportunity of the next 21 days to redeem the promise.
Adigun and Peters listed their demands to include: remittance of already deducted dues such as co-operative deductions, contributory pension bank loans repayment, NHF fund, to the appropriate quarters.
They lamented that most members of TUC had not benefited from the new minimum wage after almost two years of implementation in the state, and called on the government “to implement the minimum wage across the board for all workers without further delay.”
While also noting that the 2018-2019 promotion exercise was selectively implemented, the union called on the government to ensure that others exempted should be immediately captured for financial remuneration.
The workers also frowned at the refusal of the Accountant-General of the state to continue with cooperative savings of Ekiti workers, due to the alleged presence of some syndicate operating in her office.

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has lamented the inability of the present government to tackle the security challenges rocking the nation.
In a series of tweets on Tuesday night, the human rights lawyer recalled the administration of the former President, Olusegun Obasanjo which fought criminal elements and ensured peace in the country.
According to him, the days of good leadership are gone, stressing that, except, Nigerians, through hard work, establish better government in the 2023 general elections.
He wrote, “One thing you cannot take from OBJ is that he fought for Nigerians. If it was OBJ that was President when Nigerians were being killed like flies in South Africa there would have been consequences. If it was OBJ that was in power when Morrocons and Libyans were humiliating.
“Torturing and killing our people there would have been a price to pay. During the OBJ/Atiku Govt. Nigerians all over the world held their heads up in pride and knew that they had a President and Government that would not allow them to be pushed around or be intimidated.
“Sadly those days are gone and unless we work very hard and get the right leadership they may have gone forever”.
