Categories Of Nigerians Who Shouldn’t JAPA Abroad

 

 

 

 

JAPA– I noticed a thread on 10 sets of People Who Shouldn’t Travel To The UK”. I found it interesting and decided to create my own version. I am an immigration lawyer who just came back from an IBA (International Bar Association) Conference. As a member of the immigration committee, we discuss immigration issues. Immigration is as old as time and inevitable. I don’t have issues with Nigerians emigrating for “greener pastures” after all, I did the same thing as a teenager thanks to my folks, and encourage many others to do so. What I do have a problem with are the categories of people emigrating abroad to start all over. The list is as follows:

 

Categories Of Nigerians Who Shouldn't JAPA Abroad

 

 

 

  1. Big earners/those who are at the top of their career: It doesn’t make sense for someone who earns millions a month to abandon that in the name of JAPA. The chances that you will earn the equivalent of what you are earning in Nigeria is slim. You have to start all over again as no country is going to hire you over their own nationals.
  1. People approaching 50 and above. I was insulted some time ago when I stated that if you must Japa abroad, you should do it when you are young. While there are quite a few over 40s who have been able to re-establish themselves, there many more who have struggled to get back on their feet. The job market is a young person’s market.
  1. Politicians. This category of people makes too much money to desire to move to another country. The system in Nigeria was designed to cater to their very whelms.
  1. Small-scale/large-scale businessmen. If you have a thriving business, it doesn’t make sense to abandon your business just to start over in another country. Don’t get me wrong, many countries are looking for businessmen to invest in their economy. In the UK, they fall under the category of investor visas.

If you are a Senior Lawyer, Bank Manager, Senior Surgeon, or Senior Chartered Accountant, you are most likely at the peak of your profession in Nigeria and very likely earning a decent amount of money that places you in the elite. It makes no sense for these categories of people to emigrate and start all over again.

There you have it. Everybody else has the right to leave the country as it’s not working but it doesn’t make sense for the above-mentioned class of people to JAPA abroad (at least, outside Africa) as they have a lot to lose.

As we celebrate this historic day, we must acknowledge the immense challenges our nation continues to face. The socio-economic hardships, pervasive insecurity, and rising unemployment have left many Nigerians struggling to make ends meet. These challenges have tested our resilience and resolve as a people.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We call on the government to prioritize the alleviation of these sufferings. It is imperative that our leaders take decisive and impactful actions to address these issues. Enhanced security measures, economic reforms, and policies that create job opportunities are essential steps toward a more prosperous and secure Nigeria. The well-being of the masses should always be at the forefront of governance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Despite these challenges, we encourage all Nigerians to remain steadfast and hopeful. Our strength lies in our unity and our unwavering belief in the promise of our nation. Let us continue to support one another and work together towards a brighter future.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To our esteemed members of NBM of Africa, I urge you to remain law-abiding and uphold the values that our movement stands for. Our commitment to justice, equity, and the betterment of society must guide our actions. Let us lead by example and contribute positively to the communities in which we live.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As we celebrate Democracy Day, let us remember that the journey to a fully realized democratic nation is ongoing. Our collective efforts, resilience, and determination will pave the way for a Nigeria where every citizen can thrive in peace and prosperity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy Democracy Day, Nigeria!

Healing Stream Testimonies at Apostle Suleman’s ‘Wonders Without Number’ June 2024 Service

Healing Stream Testimonies at Apostle Suleman’s ‘Wonders Without Number’ June 2024 Service

At a recent prophetic service held by popular servant of God and General Overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries (OFM) worldwide, Apostle Johnson Suleman, great testimonies were shared, ones that will help build believers’ faith and trust in The Lord, with all their heart, mind and soul.

 

While validating the effectiveness of miracles in the life of man during the service, Apostle Suleman affirmed that, even in the most unpredictable situations, nothing is impossible for Jesus to restore. He said in his lecture that, sometimes, while praying for a particular miracle for a long time, we lose hope and question whether it will happen. But when we put our trust in Jesus, He makes it happen at the right time.

 

A young man, Nkem, from Kaduna State, gave his testimony:

“I joined the OFM prayer platform from inception. I want to thank God for the uncommon favour and for healing me of kidney and liver infections. I called the platform center for prayers and applied the oil Papa had blessed on my body. To the glory of God, both kidney and liver infection disappeared; I have been confirmed to be medically okay. Thank you Jesus.”

 

Tracy from Russia says:

“I give God all the glory for healing me of strange rashes on my body. I tabled this issue to God on this prayer altar and also kept applying the oil blessed by Papa on my body. To my amazement, the rashes have disappeared without leaving any mark. Secondly, I am overjoyed because God has restored love and peace among my siblings.”

 

Dickson, a Cameroonian resident in Bahrain:

“In the month of March, 2024, my dreams were so polluted to the extent that I was afraid to even close my eyes. Papa raised a prayer about polluted dreams and since then I have not experienced it again. I thank God for my spiritual life, my prayer life and word study has improved a lot.”

 

Joy Oluebube from Nigeria:

“Papa mentioned my name and my case, specifically! I want to thank the God of ‘Wonders Without Number’. He said; “Joy Oluebube any arrow of death fashioned against you, be destroyed in Jesus name.” Indeed, God delivered me from an attack that would have taken my life. Thank you Jesus, my time has come!”

 

Yvette from United States healed of breast lumps:

“I always connect to Papa’s prayer for the sick. I was diagnosed with breast cysts, so I usually went to the hospital to withdraw the fluid. To the glory of God, on the 13th April, I touched my breast, looking for the lumps but lo and behold the lumps were nowhere to be found. They had disappeared.”

 

Alice from France:

“In February 2024, I sent in a prayer request for God to provide a good job for my husband in a good location. Glory to God, my husband has gotten a good permanent job in a wonderful location.”

 

Precious Chikamnele from Lagos:

“I want to thank God for miraculously exempting me from the list of those that were sacked in my office. Some of my colleagues rumoured that my name was included in the list but the God of Apostle Suleman disappointed all expectations. I give God all the glory.”

 

Lilian Cyril from Abuja:

“I joined WWN in December 2023 and since then my prayer life has changed. Papa, on the 19th of April, you said that someone is bleeding and you prayed for divine healing. I received my healing, to the glory of God, bleeding of one month stopped instantly. Thank you Jesus.”

 

Tsalach from Ghana’s heavy debt settled:

“I owed a huge amount (school fees). But since we joined this family, that has been a thing of the past, the school fees of my brother and I are being paid on time through miracle money.”

 

Israel from Edo State:

“I am grateful to God for healing me of ulcer pains after joining ‘Wonders Without Number’ prayer on 15th April 2024. Thank you Jesus for healing me.”

 

Apostle Suleman pontificates that, as Christians, we pray because we believe God is listening and that He will answer our petitions according to His perfect plans. Therefore, believers need to advance in their spiritual discernment and sensitivity. “With every decision in life, God is trying to get our attention. If we could develop a constant awareness of His presence, our life will be more meaningful.”

Customary Chiefs Exonerate Lagos Monarch From Alleged Assault

 

 

 

The Customary Chiefs of Lagos, in conjunction with Oworosoki traditional worshipers led by Chief Isiaka Oyemola Ogundare, the Paramount Apena of Lagos And Chairman of Customary Chiefs of Lagos have exonerated the Oloworo of Oworosoki Kingdom, His Royal Majesty Oba Babatunde Saliu, from allegations of assault made by Akogun Adewale and his wife Salawe.

 

 

 

 

Speaking at a press conference held at Iledi Nla Osugbo on Lagos Island yesterday, Chief Chief Rafiu Atanda, the Oluwo of Oworosoki Kingdom stated that, Oba Babatunde Saliu is a gentleman to the core and does not support violence in any form.
“The Customary Chiefs of Lagos stand behind the monarch and his reputation as a just and fair ruler.

 

 

 

 

“The allegations made against Oba Babatunde Saliu by Akogun Adewale and his wife, Salawe, claiming that the king alleged Thugs beat his wife to stupor and that it was not the first time the Monarch had mobilised his thugs to assault people, is a lie, ” Atanda pointed out.

 

 

Customary Chiefs Exonerate Lagos Monarch From Alleged Assault

Stating that, he was at the palace on that faithful day, he said, the king only asked them what type of ritual rites are they performing without informing the king,.

“And the traditionalists called Salawe that King stopped them Infront of his palace. Immediately, this woman arrived, she started calling king names, Oba Saliu just called the police to handle the matter and he entered his palace. I was shocked to see news online that Thugs working for Oloworo beats woman to stupor. All these are fabricated lies,” he stressed.

To this end, he said, “this is why we bring Akogun Adewale and wife Salawe matter to Customary Chiefs here in Lagos Island because information gathered shows that Adewale was a member of Lagos Island Customary Chiefs”.

Chief Isiaka Oyemola Ogundare, the Paramount Apena of Lagos And Chairman of Customary Chiefs of Lagos alleged that Akogun Adewale is a blackmailer and impasinator, adding that, “we banned him from being a member of Customary Chiefs since 2019 because of impassinaton and the shame made him to leave Lagos Island and move to Oworosoki kingdom. Go and check his Facebook page, at times, he call himself King and he will dress like a King and post it on social media just to deceive people. He is not our member again.”

He noted that, all his claims are baseless and without merit, hence, the Customary Chiefs of Lagos urge the public to disregard these false accusations and support Oba Babatunde Saliu in his continued efforts to lead the Oworosoki Kingdom with dignity and honour.

To him, “We call on all parties involved to approach these matters with caution and refrain from spreading further misinformation. The Customary Chiefs of Lagos remain committed to upholding the traditions and values of our beloved city and will continue to stand by our esteemed monarch, Oba Babatunde Saliu.”

Recall that about 7 days ago, King Oba Babatunde Saliu had debunked the allegation In a statement issued and personally signed by him on last Wednesday, where he vehemently denied the report, stating that, it was entirely untrue and a gross misrepresentation of facts.

The monarch assured the public that he does not condone or employ thugs, and his kingdom has always promoted peace, unity and harmony among his subjects.
