Prophecy That Changed The Life Of VP Yemi Osinbajo

Prophecy That Changed The Life Of VP Yemi Osinbajo
*How RCCG pastor pronounced his ascent
Many a prominent pastor have issued failed prophecies and consequently suffered ridicule for their words. But Vice President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) knows that one pastor whose pronouncements are priceless. As a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Banana Island, Ikoyi, he never took his calling as a racket nor did he ever seek to court cheap acclaim via expensive, phony prophecies.

Osinbajo was a true man of God, according to RCCG faithful. So is the man that led him to Christ. Recently, the VP opened up on who led him to Christ. The person is Pastor Tony Rapu of Freedom House, who equally clocked 60 some weeks ago.

According to him, “In 1993, I came to the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Apapa Parish, where Pastor Tony was pastoring. I was in a workers group. Guess what he named that workers group? Government! It was prophetic – unbelievable, the number of us who actually went into government.… Oby Ezekwesili was in the same group. She, of course, became Minister in two different departments… The prophetic word had gone forth.” 

Osinbajo who turned 60 a few days ago, was the Pastor in charge of the Lagos Province 48 (Olive Tree provincial headquarters) of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Banana Island, Ikoyi before his inauguration as the Vice President of Nigeria. He is still a pastor of the parish contrary to some speculations that he has resigned as RCCG Pastor.

Men Granted Bail For Stealing Nabbed For Another Car Theft

Men Granted Bail For Stealing Nabbed For Another Car Theft
Police operatives attached to the Eziama Division in Aba, the commercial hub of Abia State, have arrested the duo of Victor Eborgu and Ohuru Santus for allegedly removing a Toyota Camry car from where it was parked on Aba Road in Umuahia, the State capital.

Operatives acted on a tip-off that some guys were planning to sell a car reported to be missing.

According to Southern City News, security agents swiftly raced to the scene and caught the suspects in the act. A source added that the suspects, recently released from the prison on bail, were awaiting trial for a car theft offence committed in 2016.

In his Confession, Eborgu said he was truly on bail for a car theft crime he committed in the past.

He said, “I was arrested because I removed a car from where it was parked. I used a master key in removing the car. I have stolen up to 10 cars since I got involved in this crime. But I was granted bail last year after I was arrested and paraded for the same crime.”

The Commissioner of Police, Adeleye Oyebade, said investigation had commenced with a view to recovering more vehicles and arresting other members of the syndicate.

He expressed the need for all the stakeholders in the administration of justice to come together and brainstorm on how to reduce the incidence of suspects on bail going back to crime.

He said, “When there is any rise in crime, all eyes are on the police to fight crime and protect lives and properties. But the prison has their own roles to play in rehabilitating the arrested suspect in the prison.”

‘Expel Students With Less Than 0.5CGPA’ – Pres. Buhari Instructs VCs

‘Expel Students With Less Than 0.5CGPA’ – Pres. Buhari Instructs VCs

While speaking at the 31st convocation of the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) yesterday, Pres. Buhari gave vice chancellors an order to expel students with less than 0.5 Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) from next academic session.

Such students, he said, are unserious elements that should not be accommodated any longer in higher institutions.

Read his speech below.

“We must stop to continue housing adventurers, who have no business remaining in the universities beyond the time specified for their studies in the universities.

In that wise, it is being proposed that at the end of this academic year, any student with less than 0.5 CGPA should cease to be a student of the university and should be shown the way out.

The universities must continue to have people who are serious in what they have come to do. If you have less than 0.5 in your CGPA, you are out. You are out for good so that the space will be left for those who have come to do serious business.”

Suspected Fulani Herdsmen Kill University Staff In Delta

Suspected Fulani Herdsmen Kill University Staff In Delta
Gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen have reportedly killed a 55-year-old senior official of the Delta State University, Mr. Sunday Idama, in Ethiope East area of the state.

Mr. Idama, an official of the Library Department in DELSU, was alleged to have died of machete cuts inflicted on him when herdsmen invaded his cassava farm at Ovre-Abraka, on Saturday.

The incident had since sparked public outrage over the unabated attacks by herdsmen on farmers in the area as herdsmen and their cattle now habited deserted farmlands.

Also, an indigene of Obiaruku community, whose identity could not be immediately ascertained, has sustained gunshot wounds when he was attacked by herdsmen at his farm.

It was gathered that the victim was rushed to a hospital for medical treatment by sympathisers after he struggled to a roadside where he was rescued.

Sources say the victim has been receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital in Obiaruku.

A source, who confirmed the incident on Sunday, blamed the continued attacks on government’s inability to take action against the herdsmen.

Presidency Reacts; "Buhari Has No Certificate Scandal"

Presidency Reacts; "Buhari Has No Certificate Scandal"
The Presidency has said President Muhammadu Buhari was not involved in any certificate scandal.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, stated this in a statement made available to journalists in Abuja.

Shehu was reacting to a story by Punch about prominent Nigerians with certificate scandals.

Apart from Buhari, former President Goodluck Jonathan, former Senate President, Evans Enwerem; former Speaker of the House of Reps, Salisu Buhari; Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose; and a national leader of APC, Bola Tinubu, were listed, among others, in the publication.

But Shehu said Buhari did not fit into the categorisation because he had no certificate scandals.

He, however, admitted that the issue of certificate was raised against the President, among other allegations, ahead of the 2015 presidential election, which he won.

The presidential spokesman said the issue of Buhari’s certificate was raised by those who wanted him disqualified from the presidential race.

He said the issue was, however, successfully dealt with before the election, saying the President had no certificate case hanging on his neck.

The statement read, “We wish to emphatically state that President Muhammadu Buhari does not fit into the categorisation of leaders with certificate scandals because he bears none that is on available records.

“In the course of the contest for the office of the President in 2015, a number of wild, untrue and malicious allegations were made against him in order to stop him from contesting the election.

“The issue of certificate was raised against him but the campaign successfully dealt with the allegations by providing evidence that not only was he qualified to run, he had a far higher academic qualification than is required by the constitution. As a result, he went on to run for the office and eventually won.

“Since the purpose of the challenge was primarily to stop him from being a candidate in that election, the challengers either voluntarily withdrew or abandoned the cases soon after he won and all of them were subsequently struck off by the courts.

“The President has no certificate case hanging on his neck.”

Saraki Reacts To Allegation Of Looting of N3.5bn

Saraki Reacts To Allegation Of Looting of N3.5bn
Below is a statement from Saraki's office on the alleged looting:
Our attention has been drawn to the circulation of a report I the media said to have been leaked by the Chairman of the EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu to some journalists where he made several allegations against Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, as it concerns the payment of the Paris Club Fund refund to the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF).

Let us state that these allegations are not new. The EFCC had from the onset of its investigation into the Paris Club refund made attempts to drag in the name of Dr. Saraki and we have promptly denied any such involvement of the Senate President.

In fact, the EFCC itself came out to deny the report as it then said it had nothing to indict the Senate President. The anti-graft agency said the investigation was still on-going then. Yet, as at that time it had all these information it is now dishing out.

“It is obvious that at this point when Mr. Magu believes the Senate President should be blamed for his failure to secure confirmation as Chairman of EFCC by the Senate, he would want to fight back by cooking up reports and masterminding its leakage. We maintain our stand that Dr. Saraki has no direct or indirect link to the distribution of the NGF money. No money from the Paris Club refund was paid to Dr. Saraki.

“In addressing the specifics of the allegation in the reports as we gathered from the press, EFCC believe that since the Senate President has worked in the same organisation with Mr. Robert Mbonu before, whatever transaction he is involved in should be linked to the Senate President in this era of mud-slinging and much-raking. We would like to say that Mr. Mbonu is not representing Mr. Saraki in any transaction he does with the NGF and no money from his company, Melrose, in his dealing with Nigeria Governors Forum came to Dr. Saraki either directly or indirectly. And if the EFCC has any information to the contrary, we challenge them to make it public.

“We state categorically that no aide of the Senate President acted on Saraki’s behalf in whatever they do with Mr. Mbonu.

“Again, If Melrose paid any money to a jeweller or any shop, that has nothing to do with the Senate President. We believe Melrose must have the necessary documentation in support of their transaction and we are sure the EFCC is aware of all these.

“In the same vein, if Melrose chose to invest in another company, that decision has nothing to do with the Senate President and the act of drawing a link between Mbonu and Saraki can at best be only pure mischief.

“At this point, it should be noted that Xtract Energy Services Limited is a well known foreign exchange dealer with almost 15 years of existence in the market and the company is widely known to do business with many organisations in the country. The last time the Senate President patronised the company was on December 19, 2014 and we challenge Mr. Magu and the EFCC to prove that the Senate President transacted any form of business with the foreign exchange dealer in the period of the payment of the Paris Club refund.

“We call on members of the public to view this concocted and leaked report as Mr. Magu’s form of fighting back. The report has no truth in it. It should be noted that the Senate President was not behind Magu’s failure to get confirmation from the Senate. That was democracy in action. Dr. Saraki is merely a presiding officer and first among equals. Dr. Saraki did not in any way interfere with the confirmation process.”
