Plateau killings: Bishop David Oyedepo Declares Warfare Prayers On Killers

The senior pastor of Living Faith Church aka Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo has reacted angrily to the killings in Plateau State.

The Bishop declared some warfare prayers over the perpetrators of the recent massacre of residents of some villages in Plateau state, saying the killers and their generations will be destroyed during the Covenant Hours of Prayer in his Church at Ota.

“One of the leaders in Plateau State spoke yesterday that since the crisis started, 52 villages were now desolate,” he said.

“For everyone behind this crisis, may they and their generations be destroyed. May their generations perish. May they never be remembered.

“Anyone who has made people’s land and families desolate, we declare them desolate today.

“Let the arrow of God locate them. Let it locate their sponsors. Let it locate all the perpetrators. Let it locate anyone backing them in government from today.”

“I Got $1.1m After Bishop Oyedepo Laid Hands On Me” – U.S Evangelist, Shuttles worth

I Got $1.1m after Bishop Oyedepo laid hands on me – U.S evangelist, Shuttlesworth

In his words:

I believe in the laying on of hands… When Rodney & Adonica Howard-Browne laid hands on me, my next revival went 3 weeks & produced over 200 New Decisions for Christ in a church of 180… When David Oyedepo Ministries International laid hands on me & commanded me to be blessed, I took in 1.1 million dollars less than 8 weeks later… Tonight I flew to Canada to have the living legend PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE lay hands on me… He prayed that a new dimension of signs & wonders would accompany my ministry… I am so thankful that a man of his caliber would take time to pray from his heart for me… I am so expectant… I love you Pastor Adeboye… Your life has blessed me more than you know

FG To Spend $322 Million Abacha Loot On Poor Nigerians & Other Intervention Programmes

Plans are reportedly ongoing by the Federal Government of Nigeria to disburse $322 million fund repatriated from the accounts of former Head of State, late General Sani Abacha in Switzerland to Nigerians.

National Coordinator of the Open Government Partnership (OGP), Nigeria and Special Assistant to the President on Justice Reforms, Juliet Ibekaku-Nwagwu disclosed this recently in an interactive session with newsmen, DailyTrust reported.

According to Punch, the Federal Government will be spending the recovered funds on various social intervention programmes provided for in the 2018 budget.

Some of the intervention programmes are the Home Grown School Feeding Programme, Government Economic Empowerment Programme, N-Power Job Creation Programme, Conditional Cash Transfers and Social Housing Fund.

Ibekeaku-Nwagwu said under a MoU with Switzerland, the funds would be paid directly into the accounts of the poorest Nigerians through their various accounts for two years and identification numbers to be made available on the website being developed by the National Social Investment office and the World Bank. She pleaded with Nigerians to be patient as the agency is working on the modalities and would brief the public on June 28th. Ibeakwu-Nwagwu added that the process for the payment will be transparent for civil society and the media to monitor.

She said despite oppositions against the MoU from within and outside government, the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami (SAN) and his team have pursued President Muhammadu Buhari’s agenda of ensuring that the $322m was returned for deployment in the social safety nets project, which would make targeted transfers to the poor and vulnerable households.

“The poorest members of the community will be registered online, and before you make any payment, they must have an ID number so that every payment would be tracked. No amount will be paid out without a joint signature between Nigeria and the World Bank and without identification of individuals,” she said.

Ibekeaku-Nwagwu said President Buhari’s commitment to the Open Government Partnership during the London Summit in 2016 has enhanced transparency and accountability in government budgeting and contracting, adding that “If there is anything we have achieved its about getting Nigerian citizens to become conscious about what is happening with their money.”

Lawyer & RCCG Pastor Declares Presidential Aspiration For 2019

One of the pastors at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Emmanuel Ikechukwu, who is also a lawyer has declared to contest Nigeria’s 2019 Presidential election with mission to rescue the nation from ‘economic doldrums”

Imo state born Ikechukwu, Pastor at Rivers state Province 10 of the RCCG, declared for the 2019 Presidency yesterday in Port Harcourt under formerPresident Olusegun Obasanjo’s inspired African Democratic Congress, ADC. He said,

“When this (Buhari’s) government came up with this anti corruption corruption issue and made it a focal point, it scared a lot of investors away. You don’t scare people away. You try to see how you can tackle the economy.

“Though corruption needs to be taken care of, you cannot eradicate it from any human environment. What you need to do is to focus on basic challenges that intensify corruption. If you fix the economy, insecurity, corruption would be taken care of.

“We need to tackle unemployment and insecurity. And the assured way to achieve that is to create industries through conscious technological advancement” improving the economy is not rocket science.

“What a government needs to do is effective partnership with the private sector to develop education, infrastructures, build industries to create jobs, reduce employment, and partner financial institutions to support sustenance of small and medium scale enterprises for the masses through cooperatives financing. Asked to define his clear blueprint for achieving all his thoughts for changing the fortunes of the nation, Ikechukwu who was been in law practice for 11 years said it a matter of having the will to make change that matters.

“At 40 and given my background and experience, I have all it takes to steer the ship of the nation from prolong economic doldrums. People say it is easier said than done, that when you get there, a lot of things will overwhelm you.

“I say to them nothing can overwhelm me. It is not rocket science. To fix the economy and create jobs is not something we will get from outer space. The opportunities, human or natural resources, are around us, all a genuine change agent needs is the will and I have it”, he declared.

Clarence Fountain Of Blind Boys Of Alabama Dies At 88

Clarence Fountain, who led the award-winning Blind Boys of Alabama for more than 60 years, died on Sunday at a hospital near his home in Baton Rouge, La. He was 88.

The Blind Boys’ manager, Charles Driebe, said the cause was complications of diabetes.

The Blind Boys of Alabama sang a raucous, exuberant style of gospel that mixed harmony vocals with impassioned call-and-response shouting intended to rouse an audience into a religious fervor.

Explaining the group’s sound to The New York Times in 1987, Ray Allen, a folklorist and music historian, said it had evolved from the more staid style known as jubilee gospel into one that is distinguished by “a prominent lead singer shouting and preaching and backed by a rhythm-and-blues band.”

“Vocally, it made use of stronger rhythms and vocal techniques, such as moaning, melisma, falsetto and trance-induced kinds of behavior that had obvious antecedents in Caribbean or West African worship,” Mr. Allen continued. “The jubilee groups, by contrast, stood up straight and didn’t move around much.” The Blind Boys, he said, “were at the forefront of the transition.”

Mr. Fountain, who had a deep, versatile voice that became weathered over the decades, often sang lead. When he did, he could sound as explosive as James Brown. (Mr. Driebe said it might be more accurate to say that Mr. Brown sounded like Mr. Fountain.)

The Blind Boys had their roots in the mid-1940s at a segregated school for the blind in Talladega, Ala., where Mr. Fountain and five friends formed a group they originally called the Happy Land Jubilee Singers.

Renamed the Blind Boys, the group was well established on the gospel circuit by the time many other performers, including Otis Redding, Little Richard, Sam Cooke and Mr. Brown, became famous for moving from gospel to secular music.

The Happy Land Jubilee Singers shortly before the group was renamed the Blind Boys of Alabama in 1948. From left were Johnnie Fields, Mr. Fountain, J.T. Hutton, Ollie Thomas, George L. Scott and Velma Traylor.

Mr. Fountain said that over the years some producers had tried to persuade him and the group to make pop records, but he refused.

“I didn’t turn my back on the Lord,” he said on the NPR program “Morning Edition” in 2001. “I said I wanted to sing gospel music and I wanted to sing it for the Lord.”

Still, the Blind Boys’ foot-stomping sound appealed to secular audiences — and to secular artists. They worked with Lou Reed, Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Neil Diamond, Tom Waits, Aaron Neville and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver.

Beginning in the 1990s, the Blind Boys became more open to covering songs by artists like Mr. Reed, the Rolling Stones, Jimmy Cliff, Bob Dylan, Prince andCurtis Mayfield, as long as the lyrics did not betray their spirituality.

The results could be striking. In one instance the group sang the lyrics to “Amazing Grace” over the Animals’ arrangement of the traditional song “The House of the Rising Sun.”

In 1994 the Blind Boys received a National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. Their “Spirit of the Century” won the 2001 Grammy for best traditional gospel album, and they went on to win four more Grammys before receiving a lifetime achievement award from the Recording Academy in 2009.

The Blind Boys lineup has changed over the years. The last surviving original member is Jimmy Carter, who is still touring with the group.

Mr. Fountain married Barbara Robertson in 1999. She survives him. His survivors also include several children.

President Buhari Honours MKO Abiola – Declares June 12 Democracy Day!

President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,Muhammadu Buhari has directed that, henceforth, the nation’s Democracy Day will be holding on June 12 of every year, as against the current arrangement where the ceremony holds on May 29.

Buhari has also resolved to honour the winner of the annulled June 12, 1993 presidential election, Chief Moshood Kashimawo Abiola, with the highest national honour, Grand Commander of the Federal Republic.

The President disclosed this in a statement he signed and made available to journalists on Wednesday.

He said he reached the decisions after due consultations.

Apart from Abiola, Buhari said he would also honour his running mate, Alhaji Babagana Kingibe; and the late human rights activist, Chief Gani Fawehinmi, with the second highest National honour, the Grand Commander of the Niger.

He said their investiture would take place on June 12.

The statement read, “For the past 18 years, Nigerians have been celebrating May 29, as Democracy Day. That was the date when, for the second time in our history, an elected civilian administration took over from a military government. The first time this happened was on October 21, 1979.

“But in the view of Nigerians, as shared by this administration, June 12, 1993 was far more symbolic of democracy in the Nigerian context than May 29 or even the October 1.

“June 12, 1993 was the day when Nigerians in millions expressed their democratic will in what was undisputedly the freest, fairest and most peaceful elections since our Independence.

“The fact that the outcome of that election was not upheld by the then military Government does not distract from the democratic credentials of that process.

“Accordingly, after due consultations, the Federal Government has decided that henceforth, June 12 will be celebrated as Democracy Day.

“Therefore, government has decided to award posthumously the highest honour of the land, GCFR, to late Chief MKO Abiola, the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 cancelled elections.

“His running mate as Vice President, Ambassador Babagana Kingibe, is also to be invested with a GCON.

“Furthermore, the tireless fighter for human rights and the actualisation of the June 12 elections and indeed for democracy in general, the late Chief Gani Fawehinmi SAN is to be awarded the GCON.

“The investiture will take place on Tuesday June 12, 2018, a date which in future years will replace May 29 as a National Public Holiday in celebration of Nigeria Democracy Day.”

The late Abiola died in detention while struggling to actualise his mandate as contained in the annulled election.

A former Minister of Education, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, has reacted to the change of the Democracy Day date from May 29 to June 12. Ezekwesili hailed the decision by Buhari to declare June 12 as the new Democracy Day in honour of the late presumed winner of the June 12 1993 Presidential Election, Abiola. She, however, urged Buhari to also honour Mrs Kudirat Abiola.

The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers has also commended President Muhammadu Buhari for officially announcing June 12 as the new Democracy Day in the country. Mr Williams Akporeha, NUPENG President, gave the commendation while speaking with newsmen at the 107th session of the International Labour Conference (ILC) in Geneva on Thursday.
