Ex Lagos Governor Babatunde Fashola will be the country’s next president, according to the leader of Divine Intelligence Ministry Prophet George Fakolade. Fashola is also Minister of Housing, Works and Power.

The cleric revealed this in a statement on Sunday in Abuja, adding that Fashola will bring corruption to its kneel in the country.

“Mr. Babatunde Fashola of Lagos state is the person chosen by God as President and Commander-in-Chief in Nigeria come 2019,” the cleric added.

“Under Fashola’s administration, the situation in which Presidents are booed or booted out of office in shame and ignominy in past times would no longer continue.

“He would announce his cabinet on his first day in office and take-off without delay.

Fashola’s government would take-off in grand style with all hands on deck. The present sick administration and government shall become history.

“Before Mr. Fashola assumes office in 2019, President Muhammadu Buhari shall beef-up security around him like an incumbent.

“Anti-bomb and explosives experts shall open all letters for him like in the case of ex-President of the United States, Barack Obama, before his historic election.

“He would consider the entire nation his constituency, eschew parochialism in his appointments and make no excuse for failures.”

Furthermore, he said, “Fashola’s government would also step-up the fight against corruption and spare no sacred cows.

“Treasury looters can only run but cannot hide. God maintains that Nigeria still stinks with corruption and more arrests will be made.

“Having duly reflected on the incumbent Director-General of DSS, Lawal Daura, in my previous prophecies, I predict he will continue in office under Mr. Fashola for continuity and greater successes for all Nigerians.”

We Can’t Pay New Minimum Wage — Governors

Chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum, NGF, Abdulaziz Yari, said yesterday that governors were not against upward review of the minimum wage, but lack capacity to pay it.

This is as indications emerged yesterday that organized labour might resume its suspended strike over the issue as early as November 6.

Briefing journalists on the outcome of the forum’s meeting with the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Wednesday night, Yari said the issue was not just on the agreed figure to be paid by the governors but also the “ability or resources to take care of that agreed minimum wage.”

Noting that his colleagues made it known that they have no problem with a review of salaries but were being real, Yari, who is governor of Zamfara State, said: “The problem of the states is the capacity to pay what is agreed. As we are talking today, we are struggling with N18,000.

“Some of the states are paying 35 percent, some 50 percent and still some states have salary arrears. So, it is not about only reviewing it but how we are going to get the resources to cater for it.”

Yari’s statement caused a stir in the polity, yesterday. There was anxiety that labour leaders who met over the issue last night may call for industrial action. Some state chapters of the NLC, vowed to shut down the country if the minimum wage was not reviewed and implemented.

The NLC had demanded N30,000 as minimum wage, the governors proposed N20,000, while the Federal Government said it could afford N24,000.
