Civil Society Organization Condemns Naira Scarcity Violence, Faults Presidential Broadcast on N200 as Contempt of Court

A civil society organization, Centre for Social and Economic Rights (CSER) has condemned in the strongest terms the violence that has broken out in some parts of the country as a result of the wicked, insensitive, irresponsible and provocative implementation of the naira redesign policy which has subjected Nigerians to untold hardship, pains, agony and deprivations of their personal and legitimate money domiciled in banks.
Civil Society Organization Condemns Naira Scarcity Violence, Faults Presidential Broadcast on N200 as Contempt of Court
According to a press statement issued in Lagos today Thursday 16th February 2023 by the group executive director Nelson Ekujumi, he stated that, “We are saddened and traumatized by the pains and anguish inflicted on innocent Nigerians by the inhuman implementation of this policy which has degenerated to pockets of violence and it’s attendant destruction of properties and likely loss of life”. “We condemn the violence in it’s entirety and call on Nigerians to remain calm and not to fall prey to the plots of anti democratic elements whose major goal is to truncate the smooth conduct of the 2023 general elections”.
The group stated that it sympathized with Nigerians for enduring the pains and agony inflicted by the policy so far and urged them to continue to keep the peace because, “Together we shall weather and overcome this storm”.
However, CSER wants it placed on record that the blame for this violence should be placed squarely at the doorstep of the CBN management and the federal government for their insensitivity to the pains of ordinary Nigerians in accessing their personal and legitimate funds which is condemnable and unacceptable.
The civil society organization while welcoming and appreciating President Muhammadu Buhari for his presidential broadcast of 16th February 2023 in response to the naira redesign policy implementation crisis, however faulted Mr. President speech for affirming only the old N200 notes as valid legal tender as against the old N500 and N1000 notes which from the speech are no longer legal tender.
Nelson Ekujumi noted that, it is not in doubt that Nigeria operates a constitutional democracy in which the law of the land is supreme as individuals, groups and institutions are subject to the provisions of the law. Going further, he stated, “We are aware that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration is one that prides itself as a respecter of the rule of law, we are also aware that only yesterday 15th February 2023, the supreme court ruled that it’s order on the dateline extension of the old N200, N500 and N1000 naira as legal tender subsists till the next adjourned date of 22nd February, 2023”.
Therefore, we are at CSER are at a loss as to where in the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria, Mr. President derives the power to over ride the pronouncement of the court via a presidential broadcast?
As stated by Mr. President in his presidential speech today, he himself made allusion to the matter being in court and we would have expected him to have taken judicial notice of the court pronouncement in his speech, but which unfortunately and sadly was not the case.
With all due respect, “Mr. President by the presidential broadcast of recognizing only the old N200 as legal tender and pronouncing the old N500 and N1000 notes as no longer legal tender, is by law liable for contempt of court which is unfortunate.
We also want to use this opportunity to call on Nigerians to take electoral notice of politicians and political parties who have sided with the people in this trying times as against those gloating and calling on the CBN to remain resolute in inflicting pains on the suffering Nigerians, they have exposed themselves as who they really are as enemies of the people who wish us no good but are only pretending and should be rejected at the polls.
Therefore, as we call on Nigerians to remain calm and not resort to violence in resolving this CBN inflicted crisis, we demand that Mr. President retract that part of his speech in obedience to the supreme court ruling that the old N200, N500 and N1000 remain legal tender till the determination of the suit whose next hearing is slated for the 22nd of February 2023.
God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Thank you.
Yours Sincerely,
Nelson Ekujumi,
Executive Director.

Primate Ayodele’s Prophecy Fulfilled As Deadly Flood Hits UAE, Kenya, Burundi (VIDEO)

Niger: One Week After Primate Ayodele’s Warnings, Bandits Attack Nigerian Soldiers (VIDEO)

Primate Ayodele’s Prophecy Fulfilled As Deadly Flood Hits UAE, Kenya, Burundi (VIDEO)

If only leaders of nations are committed to listening to God-given instructions and warnings, the world would be a better place free of unnecessary chaos and panic but the incessant ignoramus attitude towards divine instructions by leaders make people become endangered in their own world.

God has blessed us with vessels that he speaks through, he has provided us with prophets like Primate Ayodele who on a daily basis shares the mind of God with mankind. Through vessels like Primate Ayodele, God warns presidents of countries ahead of time against unpleasant happenings but at all times, these warnings are ignored and sometimes, citizens sacrifice their lives because of the obstinacy of their leaders.

There is currently an issue of flooding globally which has led to the death of several people, displacement of thousands, destruction of properties worth billions of dollars and panic across continents but these could have all been avoided if leaders of the countries had listened to Primate Ayodele when he warned them in 2023 and early 2024.

The United Arab Emirates, a nation that had never recorded any heavy rain fall until a few weeks ago, is still counting losses and struggling to get back on its feet due to a deadly flooding that swept through the country.

The rainfall, which flooded streets, uprooted palm trees and shattered building facades, has never been seen in the Middle Eastern nation since records began in 1949. In the popular tourist destination Dubai, flights were canceled; traffic came to a halt and schools closed.

One-hundred millimeters (nearly 4 inches) of rain fell over the course of just 12 hours on Tuesday, according to weather observations at the airport – around what Dubai usually records in an entire year, according to United Nations data.

The rain fell so heavily and so quickly that some motorists were forced to abandon their vehicles as the floodwater rose and roads turned into rivers.

Meanwhile, Primate Ayodele had warned first in 2022 that he foresees climatic problems in the world which would cost a lot of money, lives and properties. He revealed then that the issue of flooding will come up in places that it has never happened before. He called on world leaders not to take climatic problems with levity because it will turn out to be very serious.

These were his words:

‘’I am seeing water and ecology problems, floods in Africa and many places that it hasn’t happened before … .natural catastrophe is imminent in 2023/2024. The issue of climatic problems must be taken very seriously, they must not joke with it….what we are saying will cost the world a lot of money, lives and properties..’’

In his 2024 prophecy to the United Arab Emirates, Primate Ayodele called for prayers against disasters that will cause problems in the country.

These were his words:

‘’UNITED ARAB EMIRATE: The Emirate should pray against any disaster that will cause problems in the country. I foresee an unexpected incident in the Emirate that will require the people to be more careful than ever before.’’

Unfortunately, the prophecy has been fulfilled with the unexpected disastrous flooding that has shut down activities in the highly revered United Arab Emirates.

In the same vein, Kenya is currently battling with the effects of flooding that swept through almost half of the country.

At least 32 people have been killed and two are missing after flash floods swept as a result of the flood. Some 103,500 people in all have been affected.

Kenya has registered heavy rain since mid-March but downpours have intensified over the past week, leading to mass flooding. The Kenyan Red Cross says it has carried out over 188 rescues since the onset in March.

Some roads in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi were closed Wednesday and several neighborhoods remained submerged after another day of heavy rainfall.

In Primate Ayodele’s 2024 prophecies to the nation, he called on Kenyans to pray against flooding and cases of collapsed buildings.

These were his words

‘’KENYA : The spirit of God says Kenyans must pray against assassinations and the killing of any governor. I foresee there will be bomb scares and killings. They must pray against floods and cases of collapsed buildings. The spirit of God says the efforts of the Kenyan President William Ruto will be troubled and not appreciated. He should pray not to encounter a crisis in his government Cabinet. He must be careful against protests even as health workers will go on street protests in Kenya.’’

Similarly, People in Burundi are struggling to cope with flooding after months of heavy rains, with hundreds of thousands being displaced and many homes and schools damaged.

The relentless rain has resulted in the level of water in Lake Tanganyika rising considerably, causing chaos for communities living along its shores.

Lake Tanganyika’s rising waters have invaded the port of Bujumbura, Burundi’s economic capital, disrupting business there and elsewhere in the country.

This has also fulfilled the prophecy of Primate Ayodele warning African countries that there will be flooding and other natural disasters.

Primate Ayodele has always said that he doesn’t celebrate the fulfillment of his prophecies and doesn’t pray that they come to pass but world leaders have to start following divine instructions for the sake of their citizens and in order to avoid calamities like this.

The Chairman of The Mandate Movement, Abdullahi Ayinde Enilolobo, conveyed his gratitude to Governor Sanwo-Olu through a member of the group’s Central Working Committee (CWC), Prince Adewale Arogundade, for spearheading various interventions aimed at mitigating the adverse effects of inflationary trends. A total of 300,000 households are expected to benefit from the inaugural program.

According to Enilolobo, “This holistic approach shows Governor Sanwo-Olu’s commitment to addressing the multifaceted challenges facing Lagosians and ensuring that no one is left behind in the pursuit of progress. Additionally, measures such as free ante-natal care, reduced transportation fares, and support for small businesses underscore the government’s dedication to improving the quality of life for all residents.

“We at The Mandate Movement commend Governor Sanwo-Olu for this initiative put together for the residents of Lagos, which also collorates with the wonders of the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led administration. This clearly shows that the All Progressive Congress (APC) remains a beacon of hope for Lagosians, and Nigerians at large.”

Residents across Lagos have begun to laud the ‘Eko Cares’ initiative, stating that the government has shown determination to prioritize the well-being of its citizens, embodying the principles of empathy, inclusivity, and resilience in the face of adversity.
