Re-electing Buhari ‘ll bring double portion of hardship….Adeoye

Published

on

The only patriotic thing Nigerians can do in the forthcoming elections is to vote out bad government and allow fresh people with vision and ability that can move the nation forward take over, Bishop Seun Adeoye of Sufficient Grace and Truth Ministry, Okinni, Osun State has urged the citizens.

Bishop Adeoye who is also the Spokesman of World Bishops Council (WBC) Africa, the World Federation of Churches (WFC) and the World Clergies Congress (WCC) in a statement issued on Friday, January 11, 2018 in Osogbo warned about re-electing President Muhammadu Buhari into office.

The statement reads, “Few days to the 2015 presidential election, I circulated a statement warning that if Buhari is elected as the president his government will cause untold hardship to Nigerians. Not many people listened to me. They were overwhelmed by the “change” campaign. Buhari was elected and the rest is history.

“To further sound a note of warning, I held a one-man rally in Osogbo, the Osun State capital where I emphatically declared that Buhari’s government did not bring change but “chain”. Few days after my one-man protest, I was visited my six heavily armed men in police uniform.

“What did we get in the last three and half years? The primary responsibility of any government is to protect lives and property, but never in the history of any government in this country have we lost so manyinnocent souls especially in Benue, Taraba, Plateau, Kaduna, Sokoto and Zanfara states. Indeed, the blood of innocent souls is flowing like river in Nigeria.

“Bad enough, the governor of the President’s state, Aminu Mazari Bello recently shouted out that his state, Katsina was under the siege of bandits, rustlers and kidnappers. Who will help him? Was he expecting hapless citizens with no arms to assist him?

“Few days ago, the governor of Zamfara State, Abdul-aziz Yari Abubakar also called for a state of emergency to be declared in his state due to insecurity. That was a cry too loud. Yari Abubakar is the Chairman of Nigeria’s Governor’s Forum and an APC chieftain.

“There are signs of trouble everywhere. Not long ago, Amnesty International reported that over 3,600 were killed in the herdsmen-farmer war. That is alarming.

“Has the Boko Haram war been won? What we were initially told by the government’s spokesman, Mr. Lai Muhammed was that the battle was technically over. What is the situation in Bornu, Adamawa and Yobe states?

“At just one blow, over 100 soldiers were killed by the insurgents. That’s calamitous. We read of casualties every day, not so much on the side of the hoodlums but on the sides of Nigerian military and the poor citizens.

“The Governor of Bornu, Alhaji Shetima’s openly wept at his recent meeting with President Buhari about the devastating catastrophe of Boko Haram resurgent in his state.

“Has the economy improved? We read of over 10 million job lost with about 20.9 million Nigerians unemployed and high exchange and inflation rates. We know of many industries that had closed shops. The rising costs of services and food items are unbearable.  Nigerians are really hungry. Health facilities are not improving and education standards are nothing to write home about. Today, ASUU, ASUP, SANNU are on strike.

“Yet, we found out according to a figure released by the Debt Management Office (DMO) that Nigeria’s debt was N22.43 trillion as at September 30, 2018 as against N12.12 trillion in June 2015. That’s shocking! Over 10 trillion debt incurred by the Buhari-led government in three years? Where are the visible projects that gulped as much as this?

“The acclaimed fight against corruption got messier day by day. The Transparency International report was damning. I read the president saying he will not use public funds for his campaign. But whose funds will he use? On daily basis, we see how top opposition members were running to join the president’s party to avoid prosecution from corruption.

“Is our democracy on a sound footing? Is the rule of law being observed? We read of the military invading Media houses. We heard of how those who opposed Mr. President were being hurled into detention.

“Didn’t the president’s wife, Mrs Aisha Buhari raise the alarm of cabals who held Buhari at the jugular? She said only two men – not Buhari or his Vice, Yemi Osinbajo – are in control of Nigeria. Who actually is in charge?

“Even with all these, I still asked God, ‘will Nigerians be better if Buhari is re-elected the second time as the president?’ What I heard worried me and if it happens, ‘Buhari’s re-election will bring double portion of pains and hardship to Nigerians’ was the reply.

“Nigerians have several options before them and they are free to choose who will rule over them. The only patriotic action Nigerians can take to help themselves and the generation yet unborn is to vote Buhari out and vote a new president in. Again, I await the invasion of my resident by Buhari’s men

Prayerful woman of God and Founder, Esther Ajayi Foundation, Rev. Mother Esther Abimbola Ajayi has urged political and religious leaders to embrace unity, preach peace and ensure they promote togetherness.
Rev. Mother Ajayi who is also the General Overseer, Love Of Christ Church, Clapham, London made the call at a Press Conference held in Lagos ahead of the July 20th “Celebrate The Comforter 2019” programme scheduled for Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos.
She noted that the annual event which had previously been held in the United Kingdom and the United States will be coming to Nigeria for the first time and it is aimed at unifying Christians and Nigerians in general.
According to her “Religious political and traditional rulers have a special role to play in ensuring that what remains of peace in the country is jealously guarded. Religious leaders should however, readily accept blames for the present moral decadence among the youths because it appears they have failed in their roles as the set of people to mould the future for the youths, they should therefore work in unison with the government in ensuring that those that visit places of worship have messages of moral uprightness consistently drummed into their ears.

Ademuyiwa Ajayi at the Unveiling of the memorabilia for July 20, The Comforter 2019 programme held at the Sheraton Hotel, Lagos

 “The Fundamental objective of the Comforter 2019 is to bring the Celestial and Cherubim and Seraphim churches together and to tell the world that we believe solely in the word of God. The 2018 edition a joint revival tagged ‘Celebrate The Comforter’ and themed ‘Unity In The Holy Spirit’ was held on Saturday, 28th of July 2018 at United Palace New York and it recorded a huge success and attendance.I am happy to inform you that the 2019 edition of the annual programme is slated to hold in Lagos, Nigeria at the famous Tafawa Balewa Square on the 20th of July.
She stated  that ” during the “Celebrate The Comforter” programme, “we evangelize, get people freed from shackles of poverty, win souls for christ and celebrate the wonders of God in the lives of the people”.
She added that as a form of encouraging the youths and giving them a sense of belonging, youths who excel in academic endeavour should be celebrated in churches and mosques to encourage others and get it registered in their subconscious minds that excellence is appreciated rather than the regular celebration of only those with financial accomplishments.
Rev Mother Ajayi stated that the “Celebrate The Comforter” programme is unique because the past editions have helped to change preconceived ideas about white garment churches, adding that like all other Christians, the Bible is the foundation of their faith and we all worship one God. She further asked everyone to eschew discrimination of any denomination and faith.

June 12 as Nigeria’s Democracy Day & The Danger Ahead

Published

on

By Nelson Ekujumi
In less than 72 hours from now, history will be made as Nigeria officially commemorate June 12 as Democracy Day after a 26 years struggle by patriotic and conscientious Nigerians from across ethnic and religious divide who have stood resolutely committed to this great day in our political history when Nigerians united in one voice with their votes for Chief MKO Abiola as Nigeria’s President on June 12, 1993 in an election that has been repeatedly referred to as the freest, fairest and most credible election in Nigeria’s history.
Despite the anti democratic action of ex Military dictator Ibrahim Babangida and his collaborators to truncate the people’s will that was freely and democratically expressed on June 12, 1993 by the treasonable annulment of that mandate and which was undemocratically sustained by anti democratic elements who succeeded him and successive civilian admistrations since 1999 till President Muhammadu Buhari mounted the saddle and did the needful in 2018, come 3 days time, history will be made in Nigeria as democracy triumphs once again over despotism like it always does eventually.
However, as we look forward to the commemoration of the day with joy in our hearts and gratitude to the Almighty for being fortunate to be part of our national history of declaration and recognition of June 12 as Nigeria’s democracy day for which thousands of Nigerians sacrificed their lives, limbs, freedom, business, careers, dehumanized and properties worth millions of naira lost in the process for which we are still bearing the brunt till today which is rather sad. It is important to draw attention of Nigerians and the government to series of clandestine evil plots by anti democratic elements who were part and parcel and supporters of the annulment from which they benefitted immensely in cash and kind.
These anti democratic elements and their sponsors are on the prowl, hell bent and working hard to ensure that the joy of this national victory of democracy over despotism is undermined through false alarm of incitement to provoke anarchy and social unrest, but by God’s grace, they will fail.
