|Sports / Primate Ayodele: The Prophet Who Prophesied Super Eagles Defeat At AFCON (PROOF) by ReligiousCritic: 7:29am On Jan 24|
Primate Ayodele: The Prophet Who Prophesied Super Eagles Defeat At AFCON 2022
The super eagles of Nigeria were shockingly eased out of the ongoing African Cup Of Nations (AFCON) yesterday after they lost 1-0 to Tunisia.
This development was not only shocking but unfortunate because the Nigerian team were obviously stronger than Tunisia. Before the match, about 11 players contracted Covid-19 within the Tunisia team so there was no way they could have knocked Super Eagles out of the game so easily.
Due to the incredible defeat, it is important to celebrate the prophetic call of Primate Elijah Ayodele, the leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church who had said in December that the Super Eagles Of Nigeria will not lift the AFCON trophy because he foresees that they will be eased out TECHNICALLY.
He made this statement during the release of his 90-paged 2022 prophecies at his Lagos church on December 22, 2021 when a journalist asked him about the fate of Super Eagles in the tournament. He categorically said ‘they are going nowhere’ to the surprise of many. This statement was explained on page 88 of the 90-paged prophecy. Also, credible news platform like Punch, Vanguard also published Primate Ayodele’s prophecy concerning the fate of Super Eagles in AFCON (https://www.vanguardngr.com/2021/12/super-eagles-cannot-win-next-years-afcon-will-qualify-for-world-cup-primate-ayodele/)
Super Eagles was one of the strongest team in the tournament, they won all matches in the group stage, Tunisia only managed to qualify to the knock-out stage but unfortunately, they defeated the formidable team of the Super Eagles.
Most sport analysts had said before yesterday that Super Eagles has the brightest chance of winning the trophy due to the calibre of players the team has yet none of this stopped the word of God through Primate Ayodele from coming to pass.
His prophecy on Super Eagles not lifting the trophy has been fulfilled but one thing he also mentioned that calls for attention is the fact that they will be eased out TECHNICALLY. What was the technicality in the defeat?
It’s obvious that the toughest struggle the super eagles of Nigeria had to deal with yesterday was that Alex Iwobi, a key player who replaced Kelechi Iheanacho was awarded a red card before he could even play five minutes in the match. He had already been given a yellow card till the referee consulted VAR for a red card check. Till now, many are arguing that the foul isn’t worth the card but what can they do? That was just technicality used against the super eagles of Nigeria.
Apart from this, Jay Jay Okocha, Nigerian football legend after the match commented and said Tunisia used tactics to outclass Nigeria in the match, confirming the prophet’s word.
Also, Tunisia took time to study Super Eagles in the first half, they found ways to penetrate into their box 18 and the deployment of long distance shoot. This led to the only goal in the match, it was just technical.
Considering these facts, Primate Ayodele’s prophecy has already been fulfilled and every word he said on how Super Eagles’ defeat will happen also came to pass. In Africa, there is no prophet that spoke categorically as Primate Ayodele. The man of God still went ahead to analyse how the prophecy will come to pass, which is quite alarming.
Though he is always heavily criticized for prophesying about football yet they keep coming to pass. The outcome of the last Champions League final, Euro 2020, Super Eagles matches against Lesotho, Benin Republic, etc were all prophesied by him.
Through his prophetic ministry which thrives in every sector of human life including politics, business, sports, education, etc, Primate Ayodele has been able to prove to the world that God is interested in every areas of a man’s life.
|Religion / Prophet Iginla's Brother Finally Speaks On Marital Crisis, Exposes Wife by ReligiousCritic: 10:36am On Jan 21|
‘’My Brother has no hand in my Marital issues" - Precious Iginla Clarifies As He Exposes Wife
"It's my prayer that you marry a woman who is a wife and not a knife", Says pastor Precious Iginla in an emotional laden voice as he opened up on the allegations raised by his wife Blessing Joseph in an interview she granted Chude Jideonwu.
Precious Iginla who is the shepherd in charge of prophetic Fire Embassy International Church Port Harcourt while admitting their marriage has hit the rock stated that His elder brother, Prophet Joshua Iginla has nothing to do with the brouhaha, rather he was the one who has prevailed on him to sustain the marriage this long.
According to him, at no point did prophet Iginla objected to their marriage from inception as she claimed.
"Despite her low academic qualifications, my family accepted her and my brother even included us as part of his ministry. Immediately after we got married, she objected to my working with my brother in the ministry. When the nagging was much and knowing my weakness that I hate trouble, she forced me to leave my brother's flourishing ministry just to please her. That was my biggest regret as things went awry for us. She made me turn my back on my family and even when my parents died, she didn't attend the burial ceremony of my father and mother", Precious claimed.
He also revealed that her cantankerous attitude and waywardness affected the ministry they started together. According to him, during ministry, she will go to the back of the Church and eat groundnuts, she beats up members physically and has caused us to close down the ministry thrice, thus turning herself to a nuisance in the ministry.
" Can you believe it that she will leave the house in the morning without stating where she was going , abandoning the kids with me to cater for them. She won't bath them nor care about their feeding and schooling. I do that myself. I wake them up, bath, feed and took them to school by myself. She will come back late in the night without remorse? I knew she was cheating on me but endured all of these for the sake of religion"
Speaking further, Precious Iginla admitted that when he couldnt bear it again, he decided to reconcile with his family and like a prodigal child, his Elder brother, Prophet Iginla accepted him back and gave him a duplex and a cash of N5 million to start all over.
" Can you imagine amidst all we did to my brother, he forgave us and accepted us back with love and kindness. Shortly after this, this troublesome woman started demanding too much. Instead of investing the money my brother gave us, she squandered it on a frivolous lifestyle. My brother got wind of this and called me to caution me on wasteful spending. I then decided to sell the duplex and acquired five blocks of flats. We both agreed to this. We decided to live in one and rent out the other four flats to sustain the family,the ministry in Portharcourt and also to be financially independent. Sadly, like a woman possessed, she changed her mind claiming she can't live in a flat again and that we should sell it and relocate to Abuja and life a flamboyant life. My objection to her devilish requests was the beginning of my woes and her attack against my elder brother again"
According to Precious Iginla, she called his elder brother, Prophet Iginla in Abuja that if he fails to give her N3 million for her to leave home and relocate to Abuja, she will fabricate lies against him and tarnish his name.
" I was privy to that call she made to my brother. My brother refused to yield to her cheap blackmails and she started a campaign of calumny against him. She started with a Facebook programme alleging I beat her just to target my family. Do you know at times I will run away from the house in my boxers to avoid her troubles? When that fails she will come online again saying we have sorted it"
Finally, on the issue of domestic violence, Pastor Precious denied that saying she fabricated that to get at his family. He claimed he was the victim of her domestic violence. According to him, several times she has torn his clothes to shreds, slapped him and Best him up.
" At a time she packed all my clothes and set them on fire. She told me nobody will believe me when she lied against me on the issue of domestic violence. I am the victim of thr domestic violence not her. She doesn't care about her obligation as a woman, a wife or a mother. I never denied her access to the kids. She abandoned them and I have never denied her access to them. They are with me in our house at Portharcourt. Can you believe it they she tried to indoctrinate my son to abuse me as a useless father but he refused. And mind you, I didn't initiate the divorce, she did that herself. All she is interested in is being on social media, or being a blogger. You can go to her page and confirm. All she is interested in is trending online and mind you, am not the target, she wants to ride on the popularity of my brothers fame to trend"
|Religion / Maureen Badejo Enters 2022 With Fresh Trouble As MFM Registers Judgement In UK by ReligiousCritic: 3:14pm On Dec 30, 2021|
Maureen Badejo Enters 2022 With Fresh Trouble As MFM Austria Pastor Successfully Registers Judgement In Uk Court
Sometime ago I brought you the story of one MFM pastor based in Austria that Maureen Badejo accused of fraud and stealing in her various social media channels, even after learning that an investigation was done about the matter and the pastor was given a clean bill of judgment by the Austrian police.
Interestingly, today the judgement of that matter has been successfully registered in the United Kingdom and the consequences of this is that;
1 she needs to retract all her statement about Mr. Omowanile regarding any form of accusation libel and image assassination
2 A statement should be made that all her accusations were wrong, and this should reflect in all her social media platforms
3 Maureen Badejo is to pay the legal fees of the sum of 4930 euros
4 she should refrain from mentioning any thing regarding the pastor Omowanile and anything that concerns MFM Austria.
2022 seem to be starting with legal problems for this woman and I would like bloggers and news drifters to learn from this obvious self-inflicted disaster.
If you are a blogger, and you don’t do your due diligence of sourcing proper facts or authentic stories before disseminating them. know that your troubles will meet you when you bounce off the wrong people
Maureen Badejo obviously took more than she can chew by touching the fire of God and trying to make a mockery of mountain of fire and miracles ministries and their GENERAL OBERSEER like she has always done with other ministries and gotten away, but it getting clearer that when God is with a man or a ministry, the truth will always prevail it will only take time
We are still investigating the judgement of the 100,000 pounds she is to pay to the OLUKOYAS of MFM, we will let you know how that is going maybe a special jail awaits her this 2022.
FEMI OYEWALE will always bring you the truth.

Speaking on the concept behind the online vocal challenge, the company's Consumer Brand Manager, Oluwabusayo John said; "Shalina came about the vocal challenge taking into consideration two things that unite Nigerians- sports and music. Music is one aspect of life that connect Nigerians together and when you have a product like this, it is better you connect with music in order to resourcefully connect with a good number of your consumers.

Adams said; "it's an honour to do it with Shalina. It is a great privilege. And I must say that Shalina is not selfish, some companies are just concerned about selling, but Shalina is discovering and rewarding talents, as well as developing and giving back to the people."
Remarkably, the concept which has the highly experienced team of 3P Primaa Productions and Promotions headed by cerebral Prince Adeyemi Aseperi- Shoninare as part of its development and execution teams is centred on objectives which sought to connect the products to its loyal consumers’ lifestyle and aspirations.
Meanwhile, one of the highlights of the event was the celebration of the memories of Lanre Fasasi, a former Nigerian musician and music producer, popular known by his stage name, Sound Sultan. Until his death earlier this year, he was the initial host of the contest which was earlier billed to run from February to April 2021. To cap the celebration of his memories, a one minute silence was held in his honour.

|Business / Tunde Ayeni Pressurises Ibadan Disco For $1m To Bribe Banks by ReligiousCritic: 5:17pm On Mar 03, 2021|
Exclusive: Tunde Ayeni Pressurises Ibadan Disco for $1m to Bribe Banks
With the noose of banks that he is indebted to closing in on him, beleaguered businessman and former chairman of the defunct Skye Bank, Dr Tunde Ayeni, is now mounting pressure on the Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company, IBEDC, to raise $1m to bribe the banks. Ayeni is the chairman of the IBEDC, which formally came into existence in November 2013 as part of the unbundling of the electricity sector.
Ayeni’s premise for requiring the money is to bribe banks that the IBEDC owes. However, those who know his modus operandi say Ayeni just wants to collect the money as he had always done for his personal use. There are reports that he has collected large sums of money in different tranches and at different times on the pretext of bribing banks to ward them off.
A serial debtor with a catalogue of failed businesses and funds mismanagement in his trail, Ayeni was accused by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, of funnelling billions of naira of depositors’ funds from Skye Bank where he served as chairman between 2011 and 2016 into buying over the moribund national telecoms carrier, NITEL, and its mobile subsidiary, MTEL, from the federal government in 2014 to birth Ntel. The federal government would discover that he was using NTEL’s assets to offset his indebtedness to the Assets Management Corporation of Nigeria, AMCON, in a classic case of robbing Peter to pay Paul.
Ayeni was also accused of mismanaging the funds of the bank leading to his ouster as chairman. In March 2019, the EFCC arraigned Ayeni before Justice Valentine Ashi of a Federal Capital Territory, FCT High Court, Apo, on a four-count charge bordering on criminal breach of trust and for conspiring at different times to fraudulently divert depositors’ funds domiciled at Skye Bank Plc to personal use. He and some top directors of the bank were later arraigned on a 10-count charge bordering on money laundering to the tune of N25,415,080,000 (Twenty-five Billion, Four Hundred and Fifteen Million, Eighty Thousand Naira) alongside two companies, Control Dredging Company Ltd and Royaltex Paramount Ventures Ltd.
Ayeni then sought a plea bargain in the money laundering case brought against him by the EFCC so that he can escape jail.

|Politics / Examining Governor Sanwo-olu’s 600 Days Of Making Lagos Greater by ReligiousCritic: 1:57pm On Feb 16, 2021|
It is about 600 days that Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu took over the reins of affairs as Governor of Lagos State. Between then and now, the governor has been confronted by several debilitating storms like the corona virus pandemic and the ENDSARS protests yet, he has not derailed from his developmental agenda christened T.H.E.M.E.S (Traffic Management and Transportation; Health and Environment; Education and Technology; Making Lagos a 21st Century State; Security and Governance). In this article, we examine how he has fared in each area of T.H.E.M.E.S.
By Femi Titus
TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT AND TRANSPORTATION
To aggressively address the challenge of bad roads and ease traffic congestions across the state, the first thing Governor Sanwo-Olu did on assumption of office was to introduce the ‘Zero Tolerance for Potholes Initiative’ by directing the Public Works Corporation to commence the patching and rehabilitation of the roads and the clearing and cleaning of all secondary and tertiary drainage systems to ensure the free flow of rainwater during the rainy season across the state. He also directed the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) to operate a minimum of two shifts by managing traffic until 11:00 pm daily.
The ubiquitous okada motorcycles and tricycles were also banned across 15 local councils as a stop-gap solution to the endless traffic jams. To ameliorate the attendant inconvenience of the ban, the state government rolled out 65 high-capacity buses in addition to the existing buses in the fleet of the Lagos Bus Services Limited. 550 medium-capacity vehicles are expected anytime soon.
To further strengthen the drive for a multi-modal transport system, Governor Sanwo-Olu launched the Uber Boat water transportation service, a partnership between the global ride-hailing company and the Lagos State Waterways Authority, LASWA, which is exploring the state’s abundant waterways and, thereby, reducing the pressure on roads.
Similarly, the Lagos Ferry Services (LAGFERRY) launched its commercial operations in February. In its fleet are 14 boats with a capacity of between 30 and 60 passengers. Apart from the Badore Ferry Terminal in Ajah, other modern jetties are being built in Ijegun, Badagry, Lekki, and Ajegunle.
Significantly, to improve traffic management and transportation, the Blue Line Mass Transit Rail project, which started in 2009, has been revived with the completion of the sea-crossing track. The five-kilometre elevated sea-crossing track of the project in Marina was completed last December. Other rail lines on the drawing board are the 68km – Green Line from Marina through Victoria Island, Lekki Phases 1 and 2, Ajah, Ogombo, Lekki Airport to Lekki Free Trade Zone; the 60km – Purple Line from the Redemption Camp through Ogba, Iyana Ipaja and Igando ending at Ojo; and the 34km Yellow Line from Otta through Isheri Osun, Ejigbo Mafoluku, Isolo to National Theatre. There is also the 48km Orange Line from Ikeja crossing through Mile 12, Ikorodu, Alapadi, Eligana, Isiwu, Imota and ending at Agbowa.
Also, the Oshodi – Abule-Egba section of the Lagos–Abeokuta expressway has been reconstructed and commissioned last September. The 13.68 kilometre-long BRT corridor has reduced commute time on the route by as much as 75 per cent.
HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENT
In a bid to create more awareness and sensitisation on the Lagos State Health Scheme (LSHS), the Lagos State Health Management Agency (LASHMA) has launched ‘Ilera Eko’ campaign to achieve universal health coverage for all Lagosians. This is intended to achieve universal health coverage for Lagos residents.
There is a renaissance in the state’s public health sector. A 149-bed Maternal and Childcare Centre, MCC, in Alimosho General Hospital was commissioned recently. The specialist centre is equipped with ultra-modern equipment that aids prompt delivery of maternal and child care services.
A four-floor 110-bed Maternal and Child Centre (MCC) was also recently commissioned in Eti-Osa. Specially designed to provide integrated healthcare for mothers and children, the facility has four operational surgical theatres, defibrillators, ventilators, and oxygen therapy and phototherapy units. The Eti-Osa MCC is the eighth facility completed by the state government to provide specialized mother and childcare services while two other similar facilities located in Epe and Badagry are nearing completion.
The Healthy Bee Initiative of the Lagos government, a free healthcare programme aimed at combating organ impairment and life-threatening ailments in children saw over 25,000 residents benefitting from free treatment and surgery recently.
Lagos has also been at the forefront of the fight against the coronavirus pandemic in Nigeria with a functional incident command centre and, apart from the existing isolation centre, recently opened another in Victoria Island. The new centre is a purpose-built medical facility equipped with ICU capacities in response to the resurgence of the coronavirus in Nigeria with Lagos still the hub of the infection.
The Lagos State Waste Management Authority, LAWMA, acquired 10 boats to boost its marine waste operations. The agency also launched the Lagos Blue Box initiative, a single stream recyclable collection program that encourages the separation of recyclable materials from the general waste at the point of generation and which aims to, among other objectives, encourage zero waste generation in the state and promote a healthier and cleaner environment; reduce carbon footprints and increase economic security by tapping the domestic source of the material.
EDUCATION & TECHNOLOGY
To promote a smart city with technology, the Sanwo-Olu administration organised the Art of Technology Lagos where the governor announced a N250m grant for tech start-ups to encourage young people with fantastic ideas.
The administration gave N350million bailout for personnel cost and increased the subvention of the Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education from N200million to N250mllion.
As part of the reforms for the education sector, the Eko Excel, an acronym for ‘Excellence in Child Education and Learning’, was launched in January 2020. It is already empowering teachers to deliver at the same level as their counterparts around the world; and providing strong continuous support that will encourage improvement in teachers and pupils. An estimated 14,000 primary school teachers are expected to benefit from the initiative while over 500,000 pupils would be positively impacted. Microsoft recently partnered with the state government to train 18, 000 teachers on its Microsoft Office suite.
In continuation of the use of skill acquisition as a tool of empowerment, 4, 885 youths graduated from 17 skill acquisition centres located in the five divisions of the state.
More than three decades after it was established, the Lagos State University, LASU, is set to become a residential tertiary institution as the state government, under the Public-Private Partnership, PPP, has signed a Build, Operate and Transfer, BOT, agreement with six property developers to construct 8,272 units of hostel in the school’s premises to be ready in the Year 2021.
To help legal residents whose businesses were affected by the carnage trailing the END SARS protest to resuscitate their businesses, the governor launched the N5bn MSME Recovery Fund under the Lagos State Entrepreneurship Trust Fund (LSETF).
In fulfilment of his pledge to end poverty through the implementation of socio-economic empowerment programs, Governor Sanwo-Olu recently empowered a total of 1,050 vulnerable and indigent residents in the state. Beneficiaries received, in addition to financial support, business support tools and equipment such as grinding machines, hairdressing tools, sewing machines and tyre repair kits among other materials. The governor promised that this initiative would be done quarterly.
Last November, the state government paid about N1.3 billion into the Retirement Savings Account (RSA) of 246 retirees in the state’s public service for October. The beneficiaries included employees from the mainstream service, Local Government Service, State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), the Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM), and other parastatals of the state government.
The state government has resuscitated the Adiyan Waterworks, Phase Two with contractors mobilised to site. The water treatment plant, with a production capacity of 70 million gallons per day, was started in 2013. About N600million compensation was paid to owners whose property had to give way for the reconstruction works. After resuscitation, it will provide drinking water for more than five million Lagos residents and will help to address sanitation challenges and fight water-borne diseases.
In Ojokoro Local Council Development Area, 31 roads, which adds up to a total of 20.216 kilometres, have been completed and commissioned by Governor Sanwo-Olu.
The hitherto abandoned Pen Cinema flyover project is expected to be completed and commissioned in the first quarter of 2021.
A newly constructed section of the Lagos – Badagry expressway has been declared open. The 4-kilometre section stretches from Agboju and cuts across strategic locations like Maza-Maza and Alakija to Trade Fair.
The state government entered into a Public Infrastructure Improvement Partnership (PIIP) agreement that involves banks handling the rehabilitation of roads as a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). For instance, Access Bank is partnering with the state government in the infrastructural upgrading of the Oniru network of roads under the PIIP arrangement.
Under Governor Sanwo-Olu, the China Development Bank has injected a $629million financing facility to accelerate the completion of the Lekki Deep Seaport project, which started in 2011. When completed in 2022, the deep seaport would have two container berths of 680-metre long and 16.5-metre water depth. It will also have the capacity to be berthed by fifth-generation container ships, with a capacity of 18,000 TEU ship. Governor Sanwo-Olu affirmed that the project will transform the Lekki corridor into a new economic hub and offer a new impetus for socio-economic growth in the state.
In January 2021, Governor Sanwo-Olu commissioned 264-units of flats ranging from one to four bedrooms for upper and middle-income earners in two different estates in the Ikate Elegushi and Lekki area of the state.
The 492-flat housing project in Igando area of Lagos was completed, commissioned and handed over to its new occupants in 2019. The project, which originally started in 2012 under the Home Ownership Scheme of the administration of ex-Governor Babatunde Fashola, but was abandoned by the immediate past administration, is a testimony of Sanwo-Olu’s campaign pledge to complete and deliver all critical projects inherited from the last administration. The estate is fittingly named after the first civilian governor of Lagos State, Alhaji Lateef Jakande, who died February 11th, 2021. Similarly, the recently commissioned 132-unit Lagos HOMS project at Iponri in Surulere area was named after former Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola, SAN.
There are also an additional 360 units in Igbogbo, 744 in Sangotedo, 660 in Agbowa and 680 in Egan Igando are slated for commissioning soon.
Under the Agro-Processing Productivity Enhancement and Livelihood Support (APPEALS) Women and Youth Empowerment Scheme (WYEP), 350 have graduated being the batch 1. Out of these beneficiaries, 165 majored in the poultry value chain, 35 in the rice value chain and 150 in the aquaculture value chain. The thrust of the project is to increase farmers’ productivity, production, and improve the processing and marketing of the target value chains, which would foster job creation along identified value chains.
The Imota Rice Mill in Lagos is nearing completion. The 38 metric tonnes per hour mill will be one of the biggest on the continent when completed. It is expected to throw up between 1000 and 1,500 jobs and positively impact the rice value chain that will produce 2.4 million bags of 50kg rice yearly.
The governor also unveiled a five-year master plan that would guide the state’s intervention and investment in agriculture for a long-term return with the objective to reduce food importation and over dependence on finished products from outside the country.
The state government is also in the process of establishing the Lagos Aquaculture Centre of Excellence (LACE) to drive fish production in the state. The centre will have a hatchery with a capacity to produce 50 million fish - enough to supply 5,000 smallholder farms. It will also include a 24,000 tonnes feed mill and a 20,000 tonne capacity fish processing centre. He said that the annual demand for fish in the state was 374,000 tonnes, considerably below the state’s current 155,000 tonnes of production.
Effective security is an essential component of the Sanwo-Olu developmental agenda for Lagos State. As such, he has been proactive and pragmatic in the handling of the state’s security providing the required support for the police for effective discharge of their duties. He recently commissioned the new Area L Police Command in Ilashe, Ojo; the Area 'J' Police Command administrative building at Elemoro town in Ibeju-Lekki and donated 125 patrol vehicles and 35 patrol motorcycles for the use of security operatives in the state.
|Politics / Gov Sanwoolu Praised For Reclaiming Land From Grabbers by ReligiousCritic: 7:59am On Feb 10, 2021|
The family of Late Gabriel Meadows has shown gratitude to Lagos government under His Excellence Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for reclaiming their plots of land for them from land grabbers.
Speaking on behalf of the family at a press briefing on Monday , Mr Tosin Meadows the grandchild of Late Gabriel Meadows said with what the state government has done, they've been able to restore hope to the masses that no land grabber can hijacked their property from them, it also shows that there is no room for land grabbers in Lagos again, he urged Mr Sanwo-Olu and his team on land matters to keep the good work.
During the briefing Engr. Ariori who happened to be the developer of Meadows family also extend appreciation to Lagos State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Moyosore Onigbanjo (SAN) who investigated the case and was able to established the facts that the portion of Lands belongs to Meadows family.
Establishing the facts, Justice Moyosore referred to Judgements obtained from various courts (High Court – Suit No. LD/513/80. Court of Appeal – Appeal No. CA/1/92 and the Supreme Court – SC/146/1995) and other documents showing Meadows title to the land to substantiate their position.
Engr, Ariori warns violators not to come close to the land after the state final judgment.
Recall that a Committee of Inquiry set up by the Lagos State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Moyosore Onigbanjo (SAN) to look into the complaint of a lawyer, M.O. Ubani (Esq.), published on social media on the 31st December 2020, in respect of land situate at 1, Folorunsho Kuku Street, Opebi, Ikeja, Lagos, has submitted its final report.
In order to investigate all claims, the Committee invited all the parties involved to its sitting which commenced on 4th January until 1st of February, 2021, to ascertain the identity of the land upon which enforcement was carried out and determine the present legal status of ownership as well as the level of involvement of the State Government Agencies.
It was established that the Lagos State Special Task Force on Land Grabbers (LSSTF) took its action based on the petition received from Messrs. Millan Solicitors, on behalf of the Meadows family, to eject the occupants of the land in contention, which harbours shanties, mechanics and miscreants.
The petitioners tendered copies of judgements obtained from various courts (High Court – Suit No. LD/513/80. Court of Appeal – Appeal No. CA/1/92 and the Supreme Court – SC/146/1995) and other documents showing their title to the land to substantiate their position.
Consequently, the Coordinator of the Lagos Task Force confirmed the authenticity of all documents presented by the petitioner and obtained approval to embark on the enforcement, in conjunction with other government agencies whose representatives were part of the Committee set up to establish facts of the matter - Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development, Ministry of Transportation and Office of the Surveyor-General, Lagos State.
Before finally embarking on the enforcement, steps were taken in compliance with the relevant laws guiding removal of vehicles of the mechanics illegally operating on the land; removal of the shanties and ejection of the hoodlums from the site.
The Committee members conducted a physical inspection of the land on 4th January 2020 and established that despite the demolition carried out by the Special Operations Unit, the site was still occupied by hoodlums who threatened violence and insisted that they should be left to reside at the location.
The Meadows Family (the Petitioner) was also invited to the Committee and it was established that after the execution of the judgement of the High Court of Lagos State, some mechanics and miscreants dislodged them from the land and all efforts to remove the trespassers had proved abortive until the petition to the Lagos State Special Task Force.
The Committee also ascertained that the Ex Parte Order submitted by Mr. Ubani was in the name of Circle Nigeria Limited but the C of O attached thereto in the name of Kayode Owoseye Akingbade – two different entities.
Ubani did not also provide any document to justify that the land belongs to Circle Nigeria Limited.
The findings of the Committee also indicated that:
All the Survey Plans from both the Meadows family and that of Mr. Ubani’s Client revealed that the subject land falls within the Meadows’ family land; and that
The land on which enforcement was carried out by the LSSTF falls within the parcel of land for which Meadows family obtained judgement in their favour in Suit No. LG/513/80.
The social media publication made by Mr. Ubani was to get public sympathy and blackmail the Government and its Agencies from carrying out their legal functions. The claim of Mr. Ubani cannot be substantiated with cogent facts.
Lagosians are assured that no illegal takeover of property will be allowed by the government, which will always be committed to the rule of law. The Special Task Force on Land Grabbers Law will be strengthened to grant the body power to remove trespassers from any land and put the rightful owner in possession of the property.
|Politics / Imo North :APC Candidate, Frank Ibezim Loses, Fulfils Primate Ayodele Prophecy by ReligiousCritic: 2:55pm On Feb 06, 2021|
The leader of INRI Evangelical spiritual church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has once again confirmed his call as the most accurate man of God as his prophecy on Imo North has been fulfilled.
The popular prophet has been hammering his prophecy on Imo north senatorial election since October 2020, two months before the election held, and his word has been that the candidate of the PDP, Chief Emmanuel Okewulonu will be declared as winner of the election.
The election held on December 5, 2020, and there was uncertainties because the INEC declared the APC as the winner of the election but returned no candidate because the court sacked two candidates of the APC hours before the election.
Even after that, Primate Ayodele still reinstated his prophecy that at the end of the day, the candidate of the PDP will still be victorious.
Furthermore, yesterday, the two APC candidates took their case to the Supreme court, and one of them, Frank Ibezim was declared as the authentic candidate of the APC, Meanwhile, He was sacked as the candidate of the election due to certificate forgery.
After this, Primate Ayodele told Frank Ibezim not to rejoice yet because the victory still lies with the candidate of the PDP, Emmanuel Okewulonu.
24hours after he made this statement to Frank Ibezim, news broke out that Ibezim had lost at the appeal court where he aimed to squash the federal high court judgment that sacked him for forgery case.
With this, technically, the word of Primate Ayodele is coming to pass as the APC has become a party with no eligible candidate in the election, and INEC will be left with no choice than to declare the next party with the highest vote;PDP as winner.

|Politics / After IGP Adamu, Nigerian Police Force Deserves The Most Qualified by ReligiousCritic: 7:57pm On Jan 29, 2021|
The 20th Inspector General of Police, IGP. Mohammed Adamu, NPM, mni, tenure in office as the Inspector General of Police will be coming to an end on 1st February, 2021, after a herculean job of clearing part of the rot left being by his immediate predecessor, IGP. Ibrahim Kpotun Idris. Without trying to run down the tenure of IGP. Idris, it is common knowledge within and outside the Nigeria Police Force that the organisation having been repositioned for further reforms and better service delivery by IGP. Solomon Arase, IGP. Idris came on board and took the Nigeria Police Force, dipped it in the dirtiest mud one could think of and set the organisation 15years backward. IGP. Idris performance still resonates till date, albeit in his domestic life.
Kudos and commendation must go to the current outgoing IGP., IGP Adamu who has reformatted the Nigeria Police Force with some unprecedented foundations needed for a better repositioning and total reforms of the Nigeria Police Force. Chiefly among his legacies is the new Police Actt 2020, the Nigeria Police Trust Fund Bill, Implementation of Community Policing agenda, etc. Admittedly, IGP. Adamu's, wealth of experience nationally and internationally has rubbed off on policing Nigeria. Nigerians can only wish him happy retirement and success in his national and international aspirations. IGP. Adamu is a hero of our time and his heroic legacies must be passed on to a predecessor who is MOST qualified.
Benjamin Disraeli who twice served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and the first Earl of Beaconsfield, KG, PC, FRS (21 Dec., 1804 - 19 April, 1881) said "The legacy of Heroes is the Memory of a great name and the inheritance of a great example." President Muhammed Buhari is by this appealed to, to ensure that the MOST QUALIFIED Assistant Inspector General of Police is appointed the next number one Cop in Nigeria to build on and improve upon what IGP Adamu did. It will be a disservice to the Nation especially with her current security situation across the Nation to appoint someone who is not the BEST AMONG EQUALS.
The appointment of the next IGP should be deviod of cultural, ethnic or religious biasness. We should all be reminded that the Nigeria Police Force is the main and major organisation saddled with the provision of internal security within the country. If the choice is right, every citizen, even the military will not be overstretched as being witnessed now.
President Muhammed Buhari is hereby called upon to take a cue from the United Kingdom Government who in 2010 clamoured for a replacement or reform of the existing police authorities by introducing the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill into Parliament in December 2010. Just as President Muhammed Buhari accented to the new Police Act 2020, the United Kingdom Bill received Royal Assent on 15 September 2011 becoming the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011. By November 22, 2012, immediately after the expiration of the tenure of Police and Crime Commissioner, just as we have in IGP. Mohammed Adamu's tenure, the then existing Police authority framework was replaced with a new structure spelt out in the new Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011 which saw to the currently running every four years thereafter.
APPOINT THE NEW IGP IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE POLICE ACT, 2020
President Muhammadu Buhari is hereby urged to appoint the new Inspector General of Police in accordance with the Police Act 2020, especially with consideration for merit; in terms of academic exposure both nationally and internationally, impeccable professional pedigrees, as well as other enviable qualities that can reposition the Nigeria Police in line with the dreams of Mr. president and all Nigerians.
Major contenders for the enviable position of Inspector General of Police are AIG Dan-Mallam Mohammed, AIG. Dasuki Danbappa Galadanchi, AIG. Usman Alkali, AIG. Sanusi Lemu. AIG. Hafiz Mohammed Inuwa and AIG. Moses Jitoboh.
Meanwhile, three of these contenders; AIG. Usman Alkali, AIG. Dan-Mallam Mohammed and AIG. Sanusi Lemu have about two more years to their retirement and this runs contrary to the provision of the new Police Act 2020. AIG. Hafiz Inuwa and AIG. Dasuki Galadanchi have about four years to go while AIG. Moses Jitoboh have eight years to retirement.
From the foregoing, Mr. President is hereby presented with three candidates who first meet up with approved tenure for IGP. in line with the requirement of Police Act 2020. However, other criteria needed for the highly exalted position will equally apply. Below are the brief résumé of major contenders:

CHOICE BETWEEN MERITOCRACY AND NEPOTISM
The onerous task of choosing the 21st Inspector General of Police rests solely on the Commander in Chief and the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Why the task is onerous than ever before is the current security situation and ethnic division and suspicion within the country. The President MUST BE guided by meritocracy. He must present himself like the symbol of Judiciary called "Lady Justice" symbolism of fair, equal administration of the law, without corruption, favour, greed or prejudice.
Objectively and in great service to our great Nation, the three major contenders mentioned above in the persons of AIGs Hafiz Inuwa, Dasuki Galadanchi and Moses Jitoboh; should be viewed based on merits and résumé devoid of their tribal, ethnic and religious affiliations. The good work of IGP. Muhammad Adamu needs continuation from an officer of higher calling and wider exposure so as to improve on the legacies left behind.
Without biasness, the next IGP should have a higher academic qualifications, higher professional experience and greater experience to consolidate on the ongoing reforms.
Just like a popular legal maxim says "Res ipsa loquitor", the FACTS ARE SO OBVIOUS, A PARTY NEEDS NOT EXPLAIN ANYMORE. Facts about who becomes the next IGP speak loudly for itself. May God help the President to do the needful and QUALIFIED
God bless the Nigeria Police Force!
God bless the President!!
God bless Nigeria!!!

The management of WellMed Healthcare Limited has refuted a circulated report in Punch newspapers that five of its workers were tested positive to COVID-19.

The management of WellMed claimed that before COVID-19, it took the welfare of its workers as a topmost priority, it is the same consistency that is also extended to the front like workers and staff at a time the ravaging virus is decimating the human population.
In its statement, WellMed asserted it “has constantly maintained the highest level of hygiene standard to ensure a safe and healthy environment for staff under the standard protocols set by the Health regulatory authorities.
