In the heart of the bustling metropolis of Dubai, amidst the gleaming skyscrapers and the shimmering desert sun, lies the World Trade Center, a beacon of commerce and innovation. Here, in February 2024, the world’s most prominent figures in the food industry converged for the prestigious Gulfood Exhibition, an event that sets the stage for the future of global gastronomy.

Among the myriad of attendees, one figure stood out: Mustafa Rajab, the Chief Operating Officer of a prominent trading company specializing in export strategies. With a keen eye for innovation and a dedication to quality, Mustafa embarked on a journey to navigate the intricate balance between tradition and technology in the realm of international commerce.

In an era where virtual meetings and online communication dominate the landscape, Mustafa found himself at the center of a debate: is physical face-to-face interaction still necessary in a world driven by digital connectivity?

“Some people argue that physical face-to-face interaction is no longer needed in this vast technological revolution of online meeting applications,” Mustafa reflects, “while others still believe that it is essential to conduct in-person communication in order to reach mutual understanding conceptually and practically.”

For Mustafa, the answer was clear. “I would strongly support the fact of meeting people in person to achieve the desirable outcomes,” he asserts.

And so, armed with this conviction, Mustafa dove headfirst into the whirlwind of Gulfood 2024. Amidst the vibrant displays of culinary craftsmanship and the hum of animated conversations, he sought out both existing clients and potential prospects, eager to forge connections and explore new opportunities.

“I have conducted several quality meetings and discovered more information about the international market needs,” Mustafa shares. “I had the chance to promote new value-added products, considering the market specifications requirement in terms of quality, logistics, and delivery aspects.”

Despite the grueling pace of the exhibition, Mustafa’s enthusiasm remained undiminished. “Despite the fact that I was exhausted during the fair, I was, nevertheless, happy with my sales execution and the new potential clientele achievements,” he admits with a smile.

For Mustafa, Gulfood was more than just a trade show; it was a testament to the enduring power of personal connection in an increasingly digital world. “It has always been a wonderful journey at Gulfood,” he concludes, “and I look forward to many more opportunities to bridge the gap between tradition and technology in the realm of international trade.”

As it is known, Primate Ayodele is fond of prophesying ahead of time, his prophecies are mostly warnings and in cases where the recipients refuse to listen, they end up suffering dire consequences and when they listen, they prevent whatever was supposed to happen.

For instance, Primate Ayodele has been releasing prophecies concerning the activities of terrorists in Nigeria and all of these prophecies have been coming to pass. In his 2024 prophecies, he revealed that kidnapping would take a new dimension in the country especially in Abuja, this was accurately fulfilled with the daily kidnap attacks in the federal capital territory till security operatives decided to take it seriously.

In the education sector too, Primate Ayodele warned security agencies to secure Nigerian schools as he saw several kidnap attacks happening in the sector. To fulfill this prophecy, scores of students were kidnapped in Kaduna and Sokoto in March 2024 and although most of them have been released now, the incident underscores the importance of Primate Ayodele’s prophecies in the country.

Interestingly, Primate Ayodele’s prophecy regarding the health sector in Nigeria has just saved the lives of several Nigerians that would have fallen victim to adulterated and toxic substances innocently.

In March, the prophet alerted the health sector in the country to be careful against confusion that will make them run helter-skelter. He continued by calling on NAFDAC to be on the lookout as he foresaw fake cough syrup being imported into Nigeria.

These were his words:

“The health sector must be fortified against attacks, I am seeing confusion in the sector, let them pray against situations that will make them run helter-skelter.”

“I also see fake cough syrup imported into the country, let NAFDAC be on the lookout to prevent the death of infants in our country.”

Barely one month later, The National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control has recalled Benylin Paediatrics Syrup manufactured by Johnson & Johnson, following recent toxicity findings in the laboratory on the product.

NAFDAC said laboratory analysis conducted on the product showed that it contained an unacceptably high level of Diethylene glycol and was found to cause acute oral toxicity in laboratory animals.

NAFDAC said it had directed the marketing authorisation holder of Benylin Paediatric syrup (Johnson and Johnson company, West Africa) to initiate the recall of the batch and the notice will also be uploaded to the WHO Global Surveillance and Monitoring System.

“Benylin Paediatric syrup is indicated for the relief of cough and its congestive symptoms and for the treatment of hay fever and other allergic conditions in children aged two to 12 years.
