This was announced by the chairman of the Agege Day Celebrations Committee, Mr. Afolabi Ayantayo, at a press conference on Thursday noting that the series of events would commence on Friday, February 3 and end on Tuesday, February 14, 2023.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ayantayo, a Special Adviser to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Parastatals Monitoring, said the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, and other prominent leaders, sons and daughters of Agege plan to showcase more of the virtues of the ancient town that is beginning to gain prominence as a result of massive infrastructural developments.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“In taking stocks of the struggles of the past, and modest achievements recorded so far, we, the people of Agege have decided to celebrate our journey, our resilience, our conquests, our strides and our victory over adversities, our unity over disunity, the forbearance, bravery and undying spirit of survival, of never losing hope, and of the belief in a better future.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“To commemorate the conquering spirit of Agege people and build on the unity and progress that have been achieved so far, we are celebrating our fortunes in a weeklong program tagged Agege Day Celebrations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“In celebrating the Agege Day 2022, all hands are on deck to guarantee a hitch free celebration that will educate, entertain, illuminate and excite the entire populace and well-wishers who will be welcomed to felicitate with us from across the world.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“We have hordes of accomplished Agege indigenes in the diaspora who are looking forward to felicitating with the rest of us that are home based.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“The celebrations encompass all aspects of lives of the Agege people namely, religious, cultural, social, education, sports,” he said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

While noting that the event would now be celebrated annually to draw global attention to Agege, Ayantayo said the town had suffered many years developmental challenges brought upon it and other parts of Lagos by the long military reigns.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He, however, said that town, with an estimated population of over one million people, had now become a shining light with advancements in various sectors of economy.

“Suffice to say that in all these achievements, the realisation of these goals by government, Agege itself has produced a personality that has added fulcrum, Rt. Hon. Mudasiru Ajayi Obasa, to the realisation of these lofty achievements, and who has become the brand ambassador of our humble town.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Rt. Hon. Mudasiru Obasa has, through his political accomplishments, injected much of the development the people of Agege are enjoying into the town by soliciting the support of the Executive arm and other entities, including non government organizations (NGO) and other business concerns into making direct investments in Agege, measures that have had direct impacts in the lives of the people of the town,” Ayantayo said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The committee chairman said the event would commence with a Jumat service and an awareness rally on Friday. A special service is expected to hold on Sunday, February 5.

 

 

 

 

The event would also include secondary school debate, cultural and traditional displays, a pageant and novelty match and the launching of the ₦500 million educational endowment fund.

YOU MUST OVERCOME THE NEED TO BE LIKED -Apostle Suleman lectures

If you have always been a people pleaser and always try your best to be liked by everyone, and do not like it when people are mad at you and always your mouth shut and letting people do and say whatever and walk all over you, Apostle Johnson Suleman has a word for you.

YOU MUST OVERCOME THE NEED TO BE LIKED
-Apostle Suleman lectures

The servant of God at the Omega Fire Ministries (OFM) worldwide warns you should never try to make people like you. “Deal with fear,” he instructed in his latest homily. “The person who already likes you doesn’t need it, and the person who dislikes you doesn’t deserve it,” declares the ‘Restoration Apostle, warning that you risk being overwhelmed by anxiety and fear if you desperately need to be liked by others to be happy.

“It is fear. Fear is so terrible that it takes some components to crush fear; love, power and sound mind, including courage. To be free from fear, guard what you hear. When the devil throws fear at you, gather yourself and respond in faith,” Apostle Suleman lectures.

 

There are people who are incapable of saying no to other people; they struggle terribly to overcome the need to be liked by other people. But Apostle Suleman’s warning suggests the keyword to be ‘need’. It indicates that it’s perfectly okay to ‘want’ to be liked by other people. However, issues arise when it becomes a need, because you would do all sorts of dumb things just to crave acceptance in order to be liked. The famous preacher says the need to be liked by other people can only compound the problem by breaking your commitment to yourself.

 

 

It doesn’t matter if that means ignoring your values, lying to yourself, or pretending to be someone you’re not; as long as it results in you being well-liked by others, it sounds good to you. But Apostle Suleman points out the result: “Jesus Christ and other great people in world’s history never achieved the impossible goal of being universally liked. These exceptional people lived their truth regardless of whether or not everyone liked them,” he asserts, instructing that you’re better at focusing on living your truth than trying to be liked by others.

People will dislike you because of how you look, dress and talk. People will avoid you or pretend to fall asleep when you’re talking, for reasons you may never know. But, Apostle Suleman cautions you to commit to consistently living who you really are because, he says, if you don’t, no matter who you are, you will always say yes to people who don’t like you for whatever reason.

Local sources report that the soldiers were responding to a distress call from Roro, Karaga, and Rumace communities when they were attacked. An army captain, identified as Adamu, was also abducted during the ambush. There are conflicting reports on whether Captain Adamu was subsequently killed.

This unfortunate incident has fulfilled the prophecy of Nigerian prophet, Primate Elijah Ayodele which he shared earlier in the month of April.

According to the prophecy which was captured in a video, the man of God warned the government of Niger state to be careful of attacks on military formations, government houses and governor’s convoy. He called on the authorities to watch out for any of these attacks.

These were his words:

‘’There will be a deadly attack on military formation. They must be careful so they won’t attack their government house and the governor’s convoy. They must watch on this in Niger’’

Just one week after the prophet sent this warning; bandits laid an ambush against soldiers and killed them.

There are several prophecies on the internet that Primate Ayodele has shared regarding the security situation of Nigeria. He also foretold the biggest calamity involving the brutal murder of soldiers in Delta state, kidnap operations in Nigerian schools, and several other things that have been fulfilled while some are yet to come to pass.

…Over wrongful sale of Intercontinental Hotels

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sahara Weekly Reports That The Milan Industries Ltd, owners of Intercontinental Hotels, Lagos has filed Eight Hundred and Fifty Billion Naira (N850,000,000,000.00) damages claim against Assets Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) over wrongful sale of Intercontinental Hotels Lagos.

 

 

 

 

 

Milan Industries claims N850 billion damages against AMCON

 

 

 

 

 

 

The firm had earlier filed a suit against AMCON and Polaris Bank challenging the sale of the hotel over Milan’s alleged indebtedness to Polaris, following a banking relationship between them. AMCON allegedly acquired Milan’s alleged indebtedness from Polaris, and in a bid to recover the alleged debt, purportedly sold Intercontinental Hotels – the security for the loan, to a third party. However, in December 2022, the Court of Appeal, Lagos Division, set aside the sale of Intercontinental Hotels Limited, by AMCON as being unlawful.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The claim is contained in a suit against AMCON at the Federal High Court Lagos in which Milan Industries is claiming that as a result of the unlawful sale and takeover of its hotel, it has suffered an estimated loss of more than Eight Hundred and Fifty Billion Naira (N850,000,000,000.00 ), which sum, it is now seeking from AMCON as damages in court.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The firm in its statement of claim, said “despite lodging an appeal against the judgment of the Court of Appeal, AMCON in clear abuse of court process, is also attempting to recover the unsecured part of the debt, which it estimates to be Forty Billion Two Naira (N42,000,000,000.00 ). Remarkably, at the time the hotel was sold to the third party, it was valued at Eighty-five Billion Naira (N85,000,000,000.00) whereas Milan’s indebtedness stood at Fifteen Billion Naira (N15,000,000,000.00) only, at most.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According Milan Industries, “To date, AMCON and Polaris have not informed Milan how much the hotel was purportedly sold for, and whether as a result, the debt is fully liquidated or not. The directors of Milan Industries Limited are vigorously contesting the bankruptcy proceeding commenced against them by AMCON.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a result, the directors of Milan Industries have already instructed the law firms of Prof A. B. Kasunmu L.P, Ahmed Raji & Co., and A. B. Sulu Gambari & Co. to represent them in court.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“The bankruptcy proceeding is a grand design by AMCON to divert attention from the monumental damages they have inflicted on Milan Industries Limited which they, along with Polaris, must surely pay for”, the firm stated in its statement.
