Servant of God and founder and spiritual leader at INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Lagos, Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele, has released the 2018/2019 edition of his annual prophecy book, ‘Warning to The Nations’. At a parley in his church on Saturday, August 4th, 2018, the popular prophet highlights the contents of the book before a select group of journalists from Nigerian major print and online newspapers and bloggers. Below are excerpts from the encounter…

What has God shown you can stop the killings in the country? 

What will caution these killings in Nigeria, the solution if the government can do it is, (i) let’s practice true federalism (ii) let there be no election in 2019 (iii) let’s have an agreement that states should go on their own and take care of their resources, this will caution corruption, because they only bring tax or percentage to the federal to take care of themselves, that is when the state policemen can work. If we want Nigeria to move forward it is not the election in 2019 that is the way forward for the country, the solution is, let the states be independent, then our electoral body too, by the time we do that there won’t be killings, and much later if we don’t want to live together, you can now opt out. Either we like it or not Nigeria will not exceed 2035. Let us pray against the death of a prominent Emir. Let GLO chairman pray for his health and his business because I see very serious challenges facing his business soon. Benin Republic president won’t win a second term in office. Ghanaian president should work hard and pray hard so that his second term would not be jeopardized on the altar of ethnicity. The international community will gang up against the Buhari government towards 2019 general elections. Rashidi Ladoja will not be Oyo governor again. He should perish the ambition,  says the Lord.

Have you given these solutions as a concerned Nigeria or as what God has shown you?

I’m not a politician, and I don’t want to be one. If we see that that is not the solution then we can go for another one, but this is a solution that will bring us from the burden we are. We are not voting for conscience any longer in the election, we are voting for money, and is everywhere in the world, not Nigeria only.

Do you see the youth coming to leadership positions from 2019?

If you are a youth and you don’t have money you cannot be recognized, but when you have money you can go places. So any youth without money can’t, and you must also have a political godfather and you must know how to join political thuggery which will give them the avenue, but every politician has youths as thugs, so my fear for the youth is we haven’t seen any seriousness in them, they are not yet determined to do what is right, expect they shun violence for any political purpose and have integrity. Poverty is also the problem, there is too much of hardship.

 

You once spoke about Senate president, Saraki, that if he didn’t contest for the presidency, God will be annoyed with him. Now that Saraki is with PDP are you still standing that he should contest?

See the new prophecy book first because it is a very important issue. We said it a long time ago and you can tell what is happening now.

Do we take whatever you say here as prophecy so that people will not confuse your words with an opinion?

I’m not a politician and I don’t give opinions, all I say is prophetical.

Sometimes ago you said you warned Ekiti Governor, Fayose which he disobeyed and that was why you said he failed to win governorship for his party; now in Osun State, by September there will be an election. APC has broken into factions, what should we expect in Osun State?

First on the Osun State governorship election; we said it many weeks ago that the victory is between three political parties, APC, PDP and ADP. But I see APC winning if it puts its house in order. I see a fight between the APC chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, and the party’s Board of Trustees. This position of the Lord remains. The whole messages are contained in the book. On Fayose, I want to tell you that Fayose shot himself in the foot because of greed, self-interest and ingratitude, and these led to his party’s defeat. If he had not disobeyed God, his party would have been victorious in the July 14th 2018 election. God revealed to us and we warned Fayose to desist from being selfish, greedy and ungrateful but he snubbed God’s warnings. He said he is also a prophet.  He kept deceiving the people that he had the gift of the prophets. Now, he has realized that God is not mocked.

In 2014, you said that APC would take over power after Goodluck Jonathan and that you foresaw another party coming up that would defeat APC and rule for 18 years and the party will be formed by some aggrieved elements from across the north. Are we getting close to the prophecy?

I still stand by that prophecy. God said that in the nearest future, a party will take over, and there will be no PDP or APC. We are going to see a strictly Northern party, a strong, regional party by the Northerners.

What do you foresee on the international scene?

Democrat will win the next election in America. President Donald Trump will survive impeachment but will not get a second term. He will be technically defeated. I see Texas in America being recognized as an independent state in 2038.

Who is God telling you will be the next president of Nigeria, do you see Buhari coming back; you said some political dynasties will go away by 2019, are you specifically referring to somebody, is Saraki the man God said will help Nigeria?      

Buhari’s second time is very dicey, and the honest truth is that if Buhari goes for a second term by force, there will be problems. God wants to use Saraki for something symbolic for four years only. If PDP can give him the presidential ticket, the party will bounce back and Nigeria will change for good. Otherwise, I don’t see any positive changes ahead.

You said God wants to use Saraki for four years, don’t you think that he could probably have achieved it because, in this present time that he is the Senate president, some of the things happening under his leadership are not good enough.           

You as a journalist can analyze that, but me I cannot because I’m not speaking as a politician but God’s servant. That is what I know and that is how I will answer it. If PDP wants to win, let them give Saraki the presidential ticket. Saraki’s leadership will change a lot of things.

You said you don’t see Nigeria existing beyond 2035, I want to know if there will be a bloodbath or the breakup will be peaceful?

Yes, Nigeria will break up but God says Nigeria’s breakup will be peaceful.

Can you speak on why men of God contradict one another while giving prophecies?

God can give a prophet a message and for one reason or the other, He can take the message to another prophet to deliver. This is how God works. That is why I cannot analyze God the way He works. Either positive or negative, either it comes to pass or not, I’m not in a position to judge God or any prophet or speak on anybody’s prophecies.

 

You said in the book that so many PDP governors will decamp, who are the governors?

They are both PDP and APC governors. Let’s wait and see. The book also talks about our warning in 2017 that the governorship ambition of Senator Solomon Yayi will hit the rocks. But if he can apply more strategies, I see him returning to the Senate. Also, the book warned about the deaths of both former UN secretary-general, Kofi Annan and an American lady singer, Aretha Franklin. I see INEC and Police being used by the ruling party in 2019 to get what I call ‘technical rigging’. I see new billionaire businessmen emerging in Nigeria while the likes of Dangote and Otedola will fizzle out. I see the government scrapping NURTW and a new corporate body will be established to run the transport union as a separate ministry and government will be appointing the leadership. This is what the Lord says. Akpabio will not be able to hijack the PDP structure from Akwa Ibom governor.

 

What do you foresee about the forthcoming Osun State governorship election, especially concerning the dancing senator

I don’t know any dancing senator. But APC should put their house in order if they want to win the election. If they don’t they will lose it. I don’t see Ladi Adebutu realizing his political ambition in PDP. Likewise, Adebayo Adelabu will not be given governorship ticket in Oyo State. That is what the Lord says. He is just wasting his time and energy. I see pride killing his political ambition. He needs to seek God’s face. Amaju Pinnick’s time at NFF is over. Ambode should be careful not to fight Tinubu after winning a second term in 2019. I see him winning. There will be no Lagos State in some years from now because Lagos State will be divided into two different states. I see Ekiti, Ibadan and Ondo producing food for the whole country in the nearest future. I foresee Kwara State becoming a political Mecca for other parts of Nigeria and it will be rich in rice production and cattle rearing. Kwara will also discover petrol, tin and gold in large quantity.

Chrisland School’s Supervisor Accused Of Defiling 2-year-old Pupil Sent To Kirikiri Prisons

Published

Justice Sybil Nwaka of an Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court yesterday revoked the bail of Chrisland School Supervisor, Adegboyega Adenekan, standing trial for allegedly defiling a two-year-old pupil (names withheld) of the school.

Justice Nwaka revoked Adenekan’s bail for one day after expressing concerns that he might become a flight risk and not come to court at the next adjourned date fixed for Wednesday.

The judge took the decision after Adenekan was led in defense for over an hour by his counsel, Olatunde Adejuyigbe (SAN).

At the end of his defence, the trial judge declined to let him go back home in line with the bail he has been enjoying but rather sent him to Kirikiri Prisons.

“My intuition is telling me that the defendant may not appear tomorrow for the continuation of his trial. For his own security I am hereby revoking his bail and order that he be remanded in Kirikiri Prisons until the next adjourned date,” the Judge ruled.

The defendant is facing alone count charge of child defilement before the court.

During resumed proceedings, Adenekan told the court that he found the allegations that he defiled a pupil of the school as ‘false and highly embarrassing’.

The defendant told the court that he had built a teaching career spanning over 23 years and that no parent has ever accused him of child defilement.

When the defendant was asked how he met the victim’s mother, the school supervisor said he knew the mother of the survivor as one of the parent of pupils at Chrisland School, Ajah, Victoria Garden City.

He said he became aware of the allegation against him on November 14, 2016.

“It was on a Friday around 8p.m., I received a call from an unknown number and she introduced as a parent in the school. She outrightly told me that I had sexually abused her two-year-old daughter.

“I was shocked at the allegation. She now further went on to tell me that we should keep the matter between the two of us and not tell anyone.

“She ended the call and thereafter sent me a message that read: ‘I want you to still be friendly with my child.’

Adenekan claimed to still have on his phone the text message sent to him by mother of the survivor.

He also claimed to have told his wife about the discussion he had on my phone.

The defendant told the court that he was also threatened by the father of the survivor.

Adenekan said he reported the matter to the Head Teacher as a result of which a meeting was convened, with the survivor’s mother in attendance.

“During the meeting it was concluded that the child should be examined by the school hospital. The mother refused. She later called her husband who gave his consent.”

Adenekan said it was the mother of the survivor that made arrangement for a polygraph test to be conducted on him by Halogen Securities, in Maryland (Lagos), and that he consented because he had nothing to hide.

“I was shocked when the report of the Halogen test came back and it said that I was lying. I strongly believe that the child’s mother and the security company that conducted the test fabricated the results.

“The child was in pre-school 1 when I met her. I only stand at the door of their class and say, ‘hello children.’ The class teacher and the two class assistants are usually there. I have never been alone with the child in question I have never taken her out of the class to my office,” he said.

When asked if he defiled the child, he said, “I have two daughters aged fourteen and sixteen. I would never allow someone do such to my children.

“I have been married for 18 years. My wife is even here. I have no special relationship with the child.

When the school supervisor was asked if he knew the child drew his penis, he said, “I heard she drew a penis but that is between her and her mother.

“I have never exposed my penis to this child neither have I fingered her or put my penis in her vagina.

“I am very sure everything is fabricated,” Adenekan said.

The two-year-old in her testimony had earlier accused the defendant of defiling her.

She had told the court, “Mr. Adenekan put his wee wee (penis) in my bum bum (vagina).

State Prosecutor, B.T. Boye had called about six witnesses who testified before the court while the defence had called two teachers of the school who described the defendant as a role model.

Adenekan was forced to open his defence after the court dismissed his application in which he submitted that he had no case to answer.

The trial judge, Justice Nwaka adjourned the matter till tomorrow for cross-examination of the defendant.

You’re A Pastor, Stop Lying; Nigeria Not Safe —- Afenifere Tackles VP Osinbajo

Gbemileke Ajayi

Published

on

The Pan Yoruba Socio-political group, Afenifere, has carpeted Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, over his claim that the ongoing insecurity in the country particularly kidnapping and banditry were being exaggerated by Nigerians.

The General Assembly of the group on Tuesday at the Akure home of its leader, Chief Reuben Fasoranti, who berated Prof. Osinbajo over the comment made on Sunday while addressing some Nigerians in New York, maintained that the growing trends of insecurity in the country is an indication of a failed state, particularly with the recent security alerts issued by the United Kingdom and United States of America to their citizens over security threats in most parts of the country.

While stating that the development calls for concern, the group stressed that it does not reflect truthfulness on the part of the Vice-President as “Yorubaland is Still Under Siege” as well the continued “traumatization of our people by Fulani herdsmen/kidnappers/militia all across the Six states in the zone as well as Kwara and Kogi States.”

Recall that the Vice President had during a town hall meeting in New York on Sunday evening while responding to questions and comments as regards “high rate of killings and kidnappings” in the country stated that, “With respect to general kidnapping which we have seen in parts of the country, again, this is not entirely new. In fact, some of the kidnapping stories you read or listen to are simply not true anywhere, some are fuelled by politics.

At the meeting, Osinbajo added that, “There are cases of kidnapping, no question at all about that, but some of the more dramatic stories that you hear are simply not true.”

According to the National Publicity Secretary of the group, Yinka Odumakin who signed the communiqué after the meeting, Afenifere, “frowned at this unfortunate comments by the Vice President who shames the Yoruba people with his very cheap politicking with the lives of Nigerians.”

The communiqué read in parts, “All the reports provided clear indications of failure of state as the security forces have largely incapable or unwilling to safeguard the lives of our people against these Criminals as we are not aware of any of them that has been arrested or is under trial at the moment just as all the Federal Government has done so far is to make excuses for the Boko Haram and Miyetti Allah groups that have been accused of so many crimes against the people of Nigeria.

“It is against this backdrop that the meeting was scandalized by the opportunistic and provocative utterances of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo in NewYork on Sunday dismissing the danger we are faced with in Yorubaland as well as by other zones in Nigeria as being “politically motivated.”

“As if he is unaware that we are in a digital world, which explains why America and Britain have issued travel directives to their citizens not travel to more than 2/3 of Nigeria, the VP without much thought for his integrity stated “With respect to general kidnapping which we have seen in parts of the country ,again, this is not entirely new. In fact, some of the kidnapping stories you read or listen to are simply not true anywhere, some are fueled by politics.”

Afenifere added that even the presidency cannot shy away from the pervading insecurity in country particularly as it affects the president’s hometown, Daura as well as dignitaries across the country.

“Is the report of the kidnap of a District Head from President Buhari’s town from May 1 till date politically motivated? And was the President speaking of another country when he handed kidnappers on rampage to God?

“Was former Health Minister, Prof Isaac Adewole playing politics when it was announced that his son was kidnapped ?

“What politics was afoot when the Ondo State Governor recently announced that his convoy was waylaid by kidnappers?

“If he cannot answer these questions, he should kneel before his God and ask for forgiveness for violating “Thou shall not lie” commandment .We further admonish him not to allow whatever ambition and political interest he serves to push him to make such infuriating comments as the No 2 man in the country again.

“As a people who cannot continue to bear what is going on, and we believe it is so with so many communities in Nigeria, meeting made the following demands:

The group however called on President Muhammadu Buhari to withdraw from his position as the Patron of Miyetti Allah if he his sincere of tackling the issue of herdsmen attacks in the country.

“We restate our earlier call on Mr. President to separate the office of the President of Nigeria which he occupies from being also the grand patron of Miyetti Allah which we suspect makes it very difficult for security agents to go after members of this group whenever they commit or are accused of crimes.

“There must be immediate enforcement of law and order as an urgent measure to flush out these criminal elements from our society .

“There must be immediate steps taken to rework Nigeria to take it back to the practice of FEDERALISM so that every federating unit can have their police to secure their environment.

“In order to cut the production line of criminals and bandits we must have the practice of Federalism in many key spheres especially the economy so that all units must have the rights to tap whatever is under their soil so that new corridors of prosperity are created to eradicate the massive unemployment in the county so we can cease to be the headquarters of poverty.”

Wole Soyinka Breaks Silence On Plane Seat Incident

There has been an overwhelming debate as to what transpired between Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, and a ‘young man’ that asked for his seat before a flight.

Media Mogul, Mo Abudu, shared a mail from Professor Wole Soyinka on her Instagram page, where the Nobel Laureate gave a short explanation on the incident he described as “very minor”.

Mo Abudu, explained that the content of the mail was shared after she got the approval of Wole Soyinka. It reads:

“Hallo Mo,

Someone sent me Patrick Tonye’s comment on the plane incident, and I saw your brief comment. It was a very minor thing and I’d forgotten all about it.

However, after reading the boy’s response, I became curious.

First, I never exchanged a word with him throughout beyond inviting him to take his allotted seat. Never spoke a word to him after that. Certainly never exchanged contact.

“So of course, I wonder if it’s the very individual who’s posted this or a total fake. The phenomenon of stolen identities takes very strange dimensions and has become a source of worry.

“I wonder if this is one such. Anyway of your finding out. I don’t operate in social media as you probably recall.
