“Wizkid Has Been Begging Me Since Friday” – Linda Ikeji

Featured Image

Linda Ikeji and Wizkid’s drama is something every gist lover will follow till the end, lol.

Here’s the summary, Wizkid called Linda a B***h after she wrote a story which implied he was an extravagant liar and couldn’t really afford the life he was flaunting to his fans and media. He also promised to have someone beat her up.

Linda Ikeji reported the ‘Surulere’ hitmaker to the police last week and he appeared for his police-summon, Monday, where he took a photograph with the commissioner of police as proof of his presence, captioning it “The Police Is Your Friend”.

With the Hon Commissioner of Lagos Police!!! Police is ur friend! 🌊🌊 #youngPablo!!

A photo posted by Wizkid (@wizkidayo) on Apr 18, 2016 at 9:01am PDT

Ms Linda Ikeji wasn’t in the picture which got many wondering. But, they couldn’t have trailed their speculations far as Linda was publishing a blog post about ‘her encounter’ rather than posting a picture.

Here’s what Linda Ikeji wrote:

So, I am going to write about this Wizkid matter for the very last time. Anything else after this will no longer concern me. So Wizkid and I met with the Commissioner of Police today and when the Commissioner asked me what I wanted them to do with the case…I told him that I wanted peace. And the reason why I insisted on peace and not to drag the matter further i.e go to court, is because Wizkid and his lawyers have been apologizing since Friday, up until today!

I spoke with Wizkid through his lawyer on Friday April 15th where he tendered an apology to me and said he wasn’t a violent person, that he didn’t mean what he said, that it was just an emotional outburst. And then he asked for forgiveness. Please continue…

But despite forgiving him, he still had to show up at the Police HQ to officially apologize and write an undertaken which he did today.

I see a lot of negativity has come out of this case with Wizkid – with many folks bashing me for reporting a threat on my person. But here’s my consolation and why I am glad this happened. I promise you, especially the ladies, Wizkid will never threaten you with harm again. At least not in public. I believe I am the last bus stop. He will think twice before threatening another human being again on social media. A police file has been opened for him, and he has been cautioned. The day he threatens another human being again with harm, then…

Having said that, I turned down taking a photo with him and the police commissioner this afternoon. One of his people took a pic of him and the commissioner with me in it and my people insisted they delete it. Not because I haven’t forgiven him, I just don’t need the extra drama.

I wish Wizkid all the best and will continue to celebrate him.
God bless us all.

I’m enjoying the drama and don’t want it to end. What do you think?

The Nightmare Of Obtaining A Nigerian Passport Or Visa In The United States – SKC Ogbonnia

Featured Image

The change agenda of President Muhammadu Buhari has received positive reviews so far from the United States of America. Many American businesses appear ready to take a chance again on Nigeria. But some are beginning to develop cold feet so soon because many tales on Nigeria are still very emblematic of the inept shadow of the immediate past regime.

The views and opinions expressed here are those of SKC Ogbonnia and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

Perhaps many factors contribute to the bad image, but none has been more annoying than the case of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS). For example, the process of obtaining an ordinary Nigerian visa or passport defies common sense. The primary headache is Innovate 1 Services, a maladroit company contracted during the past regime by the NIS to process passport/visa applications. Quite frankly, it is not an overstatement to quip that the old NEPA was by far more efficient. At least Nigerians could easily relate to the voices at the then NEPA. Put differently, besides the prevailing challenges at the Innovate 1 Services, the contractor also has the audacity to outsource the few jobs from a critical component of Nigerian national security to our Indian friends whose relentless brawl with the English language makes a typical Nigerian sound like an Englishman. Yet, millions of our highly qualified citizens roam the streets home and abroad in search of any kind of job.

Make no mistake about it, many would care less if the Innovate 1 Services and its “Oyinbo” staff could provide the desired service. But the reverse is obviously the case here. In fact, nothing seems to work right in that company, from web technology, applications, method of payment, customer service, and what have you. Attorney Stefano Fabeni, the Executive Director, Global Initiatives for Human Rights at Heartland Alliance in Washington, DC, had a first-hand experience and was able to tweet the matter exactly how it belongs: “Applying for #Nigerian visa with Innovate 1 services is a nightmare. They should NOT be allowed to operate in the US.”

As a foreigner, Fabeni’s harrowing account was on visa, but the passport process for our citizens in the USA is even worse. Not only do these fellow Nigerians have to grapple with the Innovate 1 Services system, those who live outside the regions where the embassies or consulates are located incur costs of an average of $1,000 to obtain a common passport. To mitigate the costs, the Nigerian Embassy designed an intelligible intervention programme, whereby passport services are entertained in major cities outside the consulates. However, apart from a potpourri of unprintable details, the intervention programme itself is fraught with two daunting challenges.

First, the exercise is extremely time-consuming in a country where time matters most. The reason offered for this failure is that each consulate office in the USA is equipped with only two Immigration bio-data capturing machines. To that end, a consulate can only afford to lend one machine for interventions, and understandably so, since the other machine must remain at the consulate for its normal operations. Second, the consulate does not seem to have the desired number of staff to contain the type of volume usually generated from the passport interventions.

A good case in point is a recent passport intervention conducted from February 19 through 22, 2016 in Houston by the Nigerian Consulate in Atlanta. Over 1,000 Nigerians applied and showed up at the venue. Although the consulate staff had to work over 15 hours per day, only less than 400 of the applications were captured by the lone machine. The majority had to go home dispirited, wondering why simple things are made difficult once associated with their native country. And you cannot fault the frustrations. In the attempt to obtain ordinary passports, these fellow Nigerians had to take off from work to queue in line for days only to end up empty-handed. Even when the passports are finally processed, it takes anywhere from four to eight weeks before they are received by the applicants.

The most mind-boggling is that Nigeria does not have a permanent consular post in the Texas/Oklahoma region. For those unfamiliar with the American geography, the area under review is similar in size to the entire Nigeria and features big cities, such as Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, and Oklahoma City. More notably, the area includes Houston, a city recognised by the US State Department as boasting the largest concentration of Nigerians in America. Moreover, Houston is the energy capital of the world, with a hive of Oil and Gas businesses tailor-made for Nigerian investment.

Buhari’s vision on foreign investment requires a holistic approach—targeting foreigners as well as Nigerians in the Diaspora. It does not require a clairvoyant to discern that these Diaspora-based Nigerians, who have been remitting home an average of $21 billion per year, actually hold the key to foreign investment into our country. To start with, they are highly vested in the different nations and serve as unsung ambassadors in their respective fields. Furthermore, most of them are nearing the retirement age and are pondering whether to invest at home or abroad. Best of all, their foreign-born children, most of who are also highly placed in different societies, are naturally eager to explore opportunities in the African country. Yet, while their parents might have been used to the “Nigerian factor”, the younger generation expects better.

The way forward is not too complicated. The change agenda of President Buhari must also be rooted in the government agencies that implement his policies. This case requires professionalising—without any delay—the NIS services in the United States of America in line with international best practices. Very importantly, the government should ensure that the Nigerian consulates in the USA are strategically located, easily accessible, and fully equipped with adequate and competent staff, the desired number of bio-data capturing machines, and ready passport/visa booklets. First impression truly matters. The very few who venture to explore opportunities in Nigeria ought to have good stories to tell, beginning from the processes of traveling to the country.

Umar, who gave this directive at the resumed hearing in the case on Monday, said his decision to conduct the trial day to day was in line with the provisions of section 396(6) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act.

The judge gave the directive in response to a request for one hour stand-down by the lawyer who represented the prosecution on Monday, Mr. Gabriel Esegine.

Esigine had told the tribunal that the lead counsel the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Rotimi Jacobs asked for the stand-down to enable him to appear briefly before the Court of Appeal in Abuja.

Reacting to the request, Umar disclosed that the tribunal would no longer wait for anybody.

He said, “By virtue of 396 (6) the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015, criminal trial of a defendant after arraignment shall proceed day to day.

“This is what the tribunal intends to do. I’m saying this to both the prosecution and the defence, this tribunal will not wait for anybody.

“We will start by 10am till about 6pm till the conclusion of the case.

“For the benefit of those who want to pray we will give a break for about 15 minutes. By 4pm, we will give another 15 minutes break to enable people to stretch their legs.”

Saraki is standing trial on a 13-count-charge bordering on false asset declaration and money laundering.

Capello: No Captain Like Puyol At Barcelona

Featured Image

Fabio Capello has blamed Barcelona’s recent struggles on the lack of a leader like Carles Puyol.

Barcelona are on a four game winless streak following their 2-1 loss to Valencia and could be pipped to the title by Atletico, who knocked them out of the UCL.

And Capello – who was coach of the Madrid team that pipped Barcelona to the title in 2006-07 after an impressive comeback – feels the lack of a true leader could cost the Camp Nou side.

“This time, the comeback has happened really quickly. Barca have lost a lot of points and are now in great difficulty. When we did it, we went step by step, quietly, right up until the last day of the season,” Capello told reporters.

“You can’t tell what will happen now and it’s possible that Barca will get back on track, both physically and mentally.

“But I think they need a captain in the mould of Puyol to pull them along. There are moments when a coach can try something, but it all counts for nothing if there is no real leader in the dressing room.

“When Juventus struggled this season, [Gianluigi] Buffon and [Giorgio] Chiellini stepped up to turn things around.”

Barcelona will be looking to return to winning ways on Wednesday, when they travel to Deportivo La Coruna.

Benitez: City Could Be Distracted By Real Madrid

Featured Image

Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez hopes Real Madrid will be a source of distraction for Manchester City.

City are third on the log after beating Chelsea 3-0, and will face Real Madrid a week after playing Newcastle on Tuesday.

Benitez hopes City will have one eye on the Champions League and suggested that Newcastle can beat any team on their day.

“In the back of your head you are thinking about a semi-final or final and if you are going to get an injury,” the 56-year-old said of City ahead of the match.

“They are professionals and will try to win but in the back of their mind they won’t want to miss a game through injury. I think they have an eye on the Champions League and hopefully we can take advantage.

“If we believe from the first minute until the last one then we can beat anyone on our day. The way we won with passion, intensity and character against Swansea is credit to our fans and players. We have to show it every game now.

“You can’t be just worried about Sergio Augero or Kevin De Bruyne – Man City are a team who are doing so well in Champions League and have many good players. They played very well against Chelsea.

“We have to be ready for a difficult game. We all have to stick together, work hard and try to get three points. We have nothing to lose at the moment and we have confidence.”

In Ogun: Mistress Flees As PDP Chairman Dies After Marathon Sex In Hotel

Featured Image

A Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Saruku Suraju, better known as “Aro Meta” is reported dead in a hotel in Ogun state after an alleged marathon sex with a woman believed to be a commercial sex worker.

Aro Meta, the PDP chairman in Ipokia local government area of Ogun state, died at the De Lover Hotel, located at Aseko area, Ibatefin in Ipokia on Friday night, PM News gathered.

Until his demise, the 68-year old man was among those to be conferred with Islamic chieftaincy titles on Sunday at Ibatefin Central Mosque.

It was gathered that he was to be turbaned as Giwa Adinni of Ibatefin Central Mosque, but the ceremony has now been postponed indefinitely.

Speaking on the matter, a family source confirmed that the man died in a hotel while his mistress fled the scene of the incident without any trace.

The family source said: “The incident happened around 9:00pm on Friday and we have buried him yesterday according to Islamic rite.

“Yes, he died at De Lover hotel. What I know was that, his party, PDP is to have the final meeting of those to be elected as officers of the party in their forthcoming Congress.

“He was on his way to the meeting when they said, a lady called him on his phone and asked him to join her at the hotel. It was his dead body that was later taken out from the hotel with series of information flying around.”

“Some said he might have contracted thunderbolt, “Magun”, a charm laid for partners who are adulterous.

“Some people said he was strangled to death by unknown people while some said he was killed by a chemical substance sniffed into his nose with an handkerchief. What all these means is that, it has a political undertone.

“We were told that he had a misunderstanding with someone in the party over the chairmanship seat as he wanted to return to the office while other candidates are interested.

“I was not there, all these are what people are saying. I don’t want to speak ill about the dead, he was there all alone now. This is a big lesson for everybody, please, spare me to stop here, I don’t want to say more than this”.

Before he died, the deceased, who had three wives, was living alone with no wife, because two of his wives left him, while the third wife, an Ajase from Benin Republic was attacked by partial stroke and has since been taken back to her relatives in Ajase town.

Is Chris Brown’s ‘Back To Sleep’ Promoting Rape Culture?

Featured Image

Best Coast singer, Bethany Cosentino knows Chris Brown is no newbie to controversy and this ‘rape promoter tag’ presently trailing Breezy will either make a crack in his already cracked public image or it will roll away along with all other controversies that have come his way in times past.

Bethany implies his new song titled “Sex You Back To Sleep” vocally depicts Brown crooning about having non-consensual sex with a girl as he urges her to keep mute as he ‘f***’s’ her.

While some like Bethany feel Breezy is promoting rape culture, the majority oppose that point of view as the song neither feels nor sounds – either verbally or lyrically – like Breezy was raping or encouraging anyone to rape a female.

Is Bethany clinging on Chris’s name for fame or does she have a point?

I know you got work pretty early, I’ll be around by 3: 30
Usually you’re done one, so baby when I wake you up

Just let me rock, fuck you back to sleep girl
Don’t say a word no (no, don’t you talk)
Baby just hold on tight to me girl
Fuck you back to sleep girl, rock you

Ain’t sorry that I woke ya, I ain’t sorry ’bout ya job
Call sick in the morning so I can get a little bit more of your love
I know you want me, how you feel me cause you never disagree
So when you wake from your sleep, girl

Just let me rock, fuck you back to sleep girl
Don’t say a word no, girl don’t you talk
Just hold on tight to me girl
Fuck you back to sleep girl, and rock you back

Ain’t sorry that I woke ya, I ain’t sorry ’bout ya job, fuck you back to sleep girl
Call sick in the morning so I can get a little bit more of your love
Ain’t sorry that I woke ya, I ain’t sorry ’bout ya job, fuck you back to sleep girl
Call sick in the morning so I can get a little bit more of your love

What’s your opinion, is it just another hit RnB single from Chris Breezy or are you Team Best Coast and feel the song is really promoting rape culture?

Marotta: Juventus Hope To Make Transfer Dealings With Chelsea

Featured Image

Juventus director general Beppe Marotta has revealed the club is looking to get into business with Chelsea, come this summer upon Conte’s arrival at the club.

Conte won five scudettos as a player and went on to win three more as a coach for Juventus, and Marotta is especially glad the Italian is manager at Chelsea.

The Blues have since been linked with Juventus duo Paul Pogba and Leonardo Bonucci, while Conte also reportedly wants to keep hold of Juan Cuadrado when he returns to Chelsea from his loan spell with the Old Lady in the summer.

And Marotta has fuelled speculation after hinting that there could be deals done between the two clubs this summer.

“I hope we can make some transfer dealings with Chelsea in the future.”

Hernandez: Ferguson Can’t Be Replaced In 100 Years

Featured Image

Javier Hernandez might not be a seer, but he is sure Manchester United won’t find a replacement for Alex Ferguson in 100 years.

Van Gaal’s job continues to be under doubt, with United sitting fifth with five games to go.

And with Mourinho or Giggs touted as possible replacement, Hernandez feels the club are always going to struggle to return to the heights they reached under the iconic Ferguson.

“Van Gaal is a really good manager to be honest,” Hernandez said to Sky Sports . “He has his own ways like all the managers in the world.

“You will not find the new Sir Alex Ferguson in the next 50 or 100 years because he was unique. He was special.

“Van Gaal can do it but in football, time and results are going to speak about if he is the main man or if he is not.”

According to reports emerging, the cattle rustlers sacked the inhabitants of Moor, a council ward in Kwande Local Government Area of the state.

Speaking to Vanguard Newspaper, a source close to the incident said: “Moor in Kwande Local Government Area is now an occupied territory. Herdsmen have sacked the inhabitants from their ancestral homes and taken over the council ward. The crisis started as far back as 2013 and has led to the death of over 100 persons and many others injured.

“All the local government clinics, including 21 primary and secondary schools in the area, have been completely destroyed. The indigenes of the community are refugees in other communities.”

Confirming the shocking revelation, the Executive Secretary of the Benue State Emergency Management Agency, SEMA, Mr. Boniface Otese, said the agency had been making concerted efforts to avail the displaced persons necessary relief materials.

In the meantime, the Police Public Relations Officer, Moses Yamu, when contacted, said the Force, army and other security agencies were working round the clock to ensure that peace and normalcy returned to every trouble spot in the state.

Nothing Like Women Solidarity! Toni Payne Urges Every Star Linda Ikeji Has Defamed To Sue Her

Featured Image

Wizkid and Linda Ikeji have carried their fight into its fourth week. Seems, this is the year of the ‘WiLy’.

What began as gossip for traffic on her site has turned into a police case as Linda Ikeji reported Wizkid to the Nigeria police authorities for saying he would ask his little cousin to beat up the blogger whenever he sees her.

The police commissioner summoned the ‘Surulere’ crooner and he didn’t appear, according to reports.

Linda Ikeji

Linda Ikeji has been called a hypocrite by Toni Payne, ex-wife of 9ice.

Linda Ikeji explained why she reported the singer as she suddenly seems to be an advocate for women affairs. She says:

I filed a police report is to encourage other women in similar situations to do same. My dear ladies, if a man threatens to puts hands on you, and you feel the threat is real, report to the authorities. Don’t wait until he does it. What if you don’t survive it? If he’s picked up and may be charged to court (yes, you can be charged to court for making threats…it’s a misdemeanor with a prison sentence), then he will think twice before making threats against you in the future or any other woman for that matter. 

I went as far as I did for me and for other women. This is to pass a strong message to our young men that these kinds of behavior towards women will not be tolerated. Should not be tolerated. If you assault or even threaten to assault a woman, the law will come after you if she chooses not to be silent. Women, don’t be silent. Let’s break the circle. For your sake, for my sake, for the sake of our daughters, grand daughters, great grand daughters and all other women that will follow them”.

While her speech has been applauded by many, there are those who can smell the hypocrisy through her words.

Linda is a popular gossip and she proudly admits to it. She is one of those bloggers who peddles gossip without caring much who she hurts.

If it’s a story abut a celebrity, right or wrong, Linda is known to use headlines and a point of view that her throng of readers will love. From history, it is usually always a half truth and a defamation of the subject. Some celebrities battle her out while some just ignore.

Well, some of those ignoring are tired of keeping mute as Toni Payne, 9ice‘s ex-wife, has come after Linda in words and actions.

Toni Payne

Toni Payne has called on every celebrity Miss Ikeji has ever written an uninformed story about to sue her since she claims ‘So, we folks with some measure of influence should be more careful with our utterances. People are watching and listening!’. 

What is good for the goose is good for the gander, if Linda Ikeji can sue Wizkid because he verbally threatened her, then all the stars whose name she has made wealth off – Tonto Dikeh Churchill, Toke Makinwa, Lola Omotayo, Seun Kuti who she said denied his children and so many more should all come out en masse and sue her after all ‘she has a measure of influence too’.

Besic Wants Support From Fans

Featured Image

Everton midfielder Muhammed Besic is calling for unity and support from the fans.

Supporters have been calling for Martinez to be sacked, with the club languishing in the bottom half of the table.

Despite domestic futility, Everton remain in the FA Cup and will face Manchester United this weekend.

Banners calling for Martinez’s departure were unfurled against Watford and Southampton recently but while Besic says he understands the fans’ frustration, he doesn’t believe the season has been “all bad” and wants supporters to get behind the team.

“It’s their choice,” Besic said. “We will always give our best.

“You can’t say the season is all bad, just maybe we didn’t win so many games but we are also in the semi-final.

“They should be behind us.

“They [fans] are always right, that is not a problem for us, I just mean we have to be together, all the fans, the players, the staff to reach the final and maybe win the Cup.”

Everton have been particularly poor at home in 2015-16, winning just four of their 17 league games on home soil.

The Blues’ stalemate with Southampton on Saturday means they are now set to finish this season with the worst home record in their history.

Besic admitted that he and his team-mates are feeling the pressure that comes with turning out at Goodison Park of late and hinted that he actually feels his side are better when they counter-attack teams, as opposed to playing the possession-heavy game Martinez craves.

“You feel that, but we are professional footballers and we have to deal with that,” Besic added.

“Away is a different game, we have to defend more and the opponent has more of the ball.

“Here we have to take the ball and play. That is maybe the difference this season not that we are afraid to play at home.

“Maybe, we feel better to defend and play on the counter.”

Lack Of Doctors? El-Rufai Shuts Govt House Clinic, Redeploys Medical Experts To Public Hospitals

Featured Image

Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has shut down the Government House Clinic and then directed that all doctors and nurses of the Clinic be transferred to the state-owned Dantsoho Hospital, Tudun Wada.

This is even as drugs and equipment in the state house clinic have also been moved to the hospital.

To this effect, all Government House staff have also been directed by the governor to use the ‘nearest’ public hospital for their immediate medical needs.

This is contained in a statement signed by Mr Samuel Aruwan, the Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity and released on Sunday.

The statement quoted El-Rufai as saying: “There are not enough doctors in the public health system in Kaduna State.

“Therefore, it is not prudent to assign doctors, nurses, and other medical staff to serve Government House alone.’’

It is clearly more beneficial to the wider society if the services of these medical personnel were made available to the public in a general hospital.”

“In addition, it is better that everyone working in the Government House uses the same health facilities as the general public.”

“Medical personnel from the Government House Clinic have been redeployed to public hospitals in the state. All drugs and medical equipment in the Government House Clinic have also been evacuated and are being put to use at the Yusuf Dantsoho Hospital.”

“From now on, all Government House staff requiring medical services will proceed to the nearest public hospital to the Government House like other citizens of the State.”

“It is expected that the management of the public hospitals will make good use of the medical personnel, drugs and equipments donated to them.”

Borini: Sunderland Possess The Spirit To Retain EPL Spot

Featured Image

Fabio Borini is positive Sunderland have the spirit to stay in the EPL.

Borini opened the scoring in the 3-0 rout over fellow relegation contenders, Norwich, moving them to within one point of them.

And Borini says the atmosphere in the Sunderland dressing room is strong ahead of the run-in towards the end of the campaign.

“Our changing room is outstanding, the spirit is one of the best I have ever known,” the Italian said.

“We are all friends and there are no selfish stars. We have goals in me and Jermain [Defoe] and keeping a clean sheet is always precious at this stage of the season.

“Over the next few games we may look back at this as a key win.”

Sunderland face a tricky test at home to Arsenal next, who are right in the hunt for a Champions League berth, but Borini believes his side have enough about them to earn a positive result when the two sides lock horns.

“It will be difficult because even if Arsenal can’t win the title, they still need the points to get a Champions League spot,” Borini added.

“Last year we stayed up by getting a 0-0 draw at Arsenal so we know we can do it, but it feels like it’s not the best situation to be in again.

“We have been here in the last four or five years, but we are experienced and we know we have the quality to get out of it, we know we have the players.

“It’s a different team now, a different style of play, but it doesn’t matter which is better – the important thing is to make sure we stay up once more.”

‘Boko Haram Not Defeated Until Chibok Girls Are Found’ – NUTWN

Featured Image

The National Union of Textiles Garment and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria (NUTWN) has stated that the Federal Government cannot claim to have ended Boko Haram insurgency until the Chibok school girls abducted two years ago are found and freed.

Speaking to pressmen on Thursday in Kaduna, at a conference to mark the two years anniversary of the abduction of the girls, the national president of the union, Comrade John Adaji, noted that the abduction of the girls left the country with a big injury yet to be healed.

He said: “We hear good news of how the insurgents have been dislodged by soldiers. Check points have disappeared and we hardly hear of bomb blasts. But we cannot celebrate when our girls kidnapped in Chibok are still missing. To me, insurgency ends when the girls are found.”

Speaking also, the General Secretary, Comrade Issa Aremu, said 17 parents of the victims have reportedly died, following the trauma of their missing daughters.

Aremu, who was represented by his Deputy National Secretary, Comrade Dele Ojo, noted that “those who abducted the 219 girls have criminally kidnapped the communities of future leaders.

“We must join forces with the forces of progress and development worldwide to rescue our beloved girls.”

“Global terrorism is making the world of work more precarious.

“Thousands of workers in Nigeria, France, Belgium, Syria and Iraq have been abducted and killed by terrorists, who see defenceless workers as soft targets.

“The International Labour Organisation (ILO) must, therefore, redouble efforts with other international agencies to rid the world of terror. Social dialogue and negotiated settlements are tested ILO’s mechanisms for resolving social conflicts, not senseless violence in which innocent Chibok girls are victims. Nothing justifies criminal abductions.

“Chibok girls are missing, but they are not forgotten until they are rescued.”

I Will Mobilise 30,000 Prophets To Pray For Nigeria – Primate Ayodele

Featured Image

The Spiritual Leader of INRI Spiritual and Evangelical Church, Oke-Afa, Isolo, Lagos, Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele, has once again restated his prophecy that President Muhammadu Buhari cannot lead Nigeria to the ‘Promised Land’.

This is just as he has promised to invite over 30, 000 prophet to pray for the country, adding that Buhari will only lay the foundation for a new Nigeria but won’t be the one to lead the country to the desired destination.

Speaking to Vanguard Newspaper during an exclusive interview, the Primate said: “What Buhari has come to do is not to take Nigeria to the Promised Land but to pave the way for it to happen. He will lay the foundation for a new Nigeria.”

He continued: A new Nigeria is coming. The area I am skeptical about is that if the law is not well planned, Nigeria may not be one again and we will then have a regional system of government whereby each region will operate on its own and I see a situation where different republics come out of Nigeria because we failed to find drastic solutions to our problems. May be there is security report to that effect or not, I don’t know.

You remember I said in one of my interviews in the past that Nigerians would buy fuel for N200, N250. Has it not come to pass now? It is the same thing I am saying now, many people may not believe. I said that some states would collapse economically and that Buhari would become President but that his government would be fluctuating. Now, the solution is this, the prophets have to come together.

There are differences between prophets and pastors. I have been taking steps for prophets to come together and pray for this nation through their anointing. The country needs prayers. What is happening now to the nation is more than the government can do alone. Meanwhile, we have people who will criticise every good move.

I have visited Primate Olabayo. Some people will say Primate Olabayo is not a prophet, but I say it to you that Primate Olabayo is a genuine prophet of God. He is a prophet and people have benefited from his prophetic endowment. I visited him on the 10th of April 2016 to tell him the way forward for Nigeria. We spoke at length on how to organize prayers for Nigeria because Buhari cannot do it alone.

We need to move this country forward and we need people who can do it. Buhari can move Nigeria forward, he has the intention and mission, but he is surrounded by people who are not with him in his mission and he does not see it. We are going to do the prayers for Nigeria. Anybody who wants to participate can come in. By the time you get my church and other prophets I want to invite, we will have nothing less than 30,000 that will register for the prayer. That is one of the ways forward that God said I should take and I have taken that step.

I will move to the South South to bring together the prophets there for this same mission. You know that I don’t belong to CAN, Christian Association of Nigeria, PFN, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, or whatever because I don’t believe in their leadership. I don’t believe in what they stand for. This forum is not to form any association. So, this one I am going to do on my own, I am only taking steps as God directs me.

President Buhari needs prayers. APC needs prayers because a lot is going to happen in that party that they will now see that they have some wrong people with them. They have too many wrong people there and 2019 is not going to be as easy as we talk about it. Not that there will be no elections but there will be changes in the elections that will distinguish them from those of the past. Before the election in Benin Republic, I told the President of that country that the Egun people would not take it easy with him. He lost the election. So, now, as a prophet, God can send you to anywhere in the world and that was why the Ghanaian President must strive hard to win second term.

I told Bukola Saraki that he should not take this CCT trial as a joke. I told him, in my interview with you, that he could go to Appeal Court and from there to Supreme Court and that any court he went to would not stop it. And if you remove Saraki and APC does not put its house together properly, PDP will still become the Senate President and that will cause a lot of problems in the Senate. Buhari will succeed in his anti-corruption fight but, at the end of the day, corruption will still hit his government because people who are corrupt and who are around him will be exposed.
