-Masterweb Reports (Submission By Augustine Togonu-Bickersteth)

Perhaps, some Mathematicians or Theoretical Physicists would have to formulate some equations to explain developments between the United States and Oyo State, particularly, Chicago and Ibadan.

Barack Obama, the United States' President and Abiola Ajimobi, Governor of Oyo State both cut their vacations short to attend to the Disasters from Hurricane Irene (August 29, 2011) and Ibadan flood, (August 26, 2011), respectively. Barack Obama is from Chicago, capital of Mid-West America, printing capital of America and home of the skyscraper and Abiola Ajimobi is from Ibadan, capital of South-West Nigeria, Publishing Capital of Nigeria and home of the Nigerian skyscraper.

James Abram Garfield, a lawyer and classicist, who got his nomination for Presidency in Chicago was assassinated, while James Ajibola Ige, a lawyer and classicist, who lost his nomination as a presidential candidate in Ibadan, was also assassinated.

Interestingly, Bola Ige’s son, Muyiwa, was Chairman of the Oyo State branch of the Nigerian Institute of Architects, with Base in Ibadan. Muyiwa studied in Chicago, the Architectural capital of the world. He is currently the Commisioner for Lands and Physical Planning in Osun State.

In Chicago and Ibadan, we had Frank Lloyd Wright and Demas Nwoko, respectively, both described as evolving an entirely new Architectural identity for their respective countries. In Chicago, we have Loyola University, and Ibadan, Loyola College. ( Mr Governor, please, give us back our school. I am an old boy of Loyola College.) ( Continues below….. )

At Chicago we had Enrici Fermi, physicist credited with winning World War II for the U.S. President, Harry S.Truman. He was called "the Pope" because he was always right described as being as good a Theoretician as well as an Experimentalist. He tested the first Nuclear Reactor as invented by him in a Squash Court on December 2 1942.

Whereas in Ibadan we had Obafemi Awolowo, a Lawyer described as the Chief strategist to the Nigerian Head of State, Yakubu Gowon. Called "the Sage" because of his wisdom he has been refered to as a Political Theoretician as well as being a Practical Economist. A son was born to him in Ibadan on December 3 1942 to be maned Oluwole who was to become an avid Squash Raquet Player.

Chicago was crucial to the development of Jazz Music in the US, and Ibadan, the Highlife Music in Nigeria. Interestingly, one of the highlife greats, who started out in Ibadan was known as Roy Chicago.

In Chicago you had Walt Disney, Cartoonist, Comedian, who studied at the Chicago Art Institute. He had his Laugh-o-Grams and was an Ambulance Driver whereas in Ibadan we had Solomon Iguanre, a Cartoonist and Comedian who co-founded Laffomania; he studied at Unibadan. Obama and Ajimobi both do not have a clear cut majority in the US Senate and the Oyo State House of Assembly, respectively.

Obama and Ajimobi were fathered by Muslims, both served as senators, both studied in the New York. Also, Obama and Ajimobi both have masters degrees, and both linked with a Citizenship Conspiracy. Like Obama, Ajimobi might have to observe January 20 and July 4, the two most important days in American History. The day of inauguration of the US President and the US Independence day. For Lam Adesina, an old boy of the Loyola College, Ibadan, a former governor of Oyo State, and the Chairman of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), of which Ajimobi is a part, was born on January 20, 1939, and his wife Saratu, on July 4, 1944.

Lastly, Obama and Ajimobi both lived in Illinois State.
