It was gathered that some suspected arsonists threw an explosive into the complex around 9:25pm, causing a fire in the building.

Though the spokesperson for the state police command, Grace Iringe-Koko, could not be reached on her mobile, a senior police officer confirmed the incident to our correspondent.

 

 

Our correspondent gathered that some properties inside the chamber were destroyed.

 

The police officer, who pleaded anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the incident, claimed it was politically motivated.

 

 

 

 

“Yes, it is true. The fire occurred around 9:30 p.m. or so. But as we speak, it (the fire) has been put out by firefighters who arrived at the scene just in time. I think it has to do with politics,” he stated.

 

 

 

Our correspondent gathered that arrangements have been concluded by some lawmakers in the state legislature to first impeach the House leader, Eddison Ehie, to pave the way for Fubara’s removal.

The House leader is said to have been blocking moves aimed at removing Fubara.

Our reporter, who visited the Assembly at about 10:30 pm, reports that the police and other security operatives had taken over the complex, as about 17 security trucks and one Armoured Personnel Carrier were stationed at the entrance and surroundings.

Aviation Minister Explores Partnerships at Future Aviation Forum in Riyadh

 

 

The Honourable Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo SAN CON FCIarb (UK), is actively engaging with Middle East aviation leaders at the ongoing Future Aviation Forum in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Hosted at the prestigious King Abdulaziz International Conference Center (KAICC), the forum marks a pivotal moment for global aviation collaboration.

At the behest of His Excellency Jassim Saif Ahmed Al-Sulaiti, Minister of Transport of the State of Qatar, and His Excellency Saleh Al-Jasser, Minister of Transport and Logistics of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Aviation Minister convened on the sidelines to deepen ties between Nigeria and the Middle East in the realm of air transportation and logistics.

The third edition of the Future Aviation Forum, themed “Elevating Global Connectivity,” underscores the importance of fostering innovation, sustainable air travel, and cultural exchange. By bringing together leaders from the aviation sector and adjacent industries, the forum serves as a catalyst for knowledge exchange and business opportunities in a dynamic economic sector.

Keyamo expressed gratitude to Minister Al-Sulaiti for his keen interest in Nigeria, affirming Nigeria’s openness to investment in civil aviation and other sectors of the economy. Emphasizing the importance of learning from Qatar’s success in airline operations, particularly exemplified by the global acclaim of Qatar Airways, the Minister sought collaboration to enhance Nigeria’s aviation sector.

A key proposal made by the Nigeria Aviation Minister involves encouraging Qatar Airways to patronize local catering services on its return trips to Doha from Nigeria. This initiative aligns with the principles of reciprocity outlined in the Bilateral Air Services Agreement (BASA) and aims to stimulate Nigeria’s local economy.

As the Future Aviation Forum continues until May 22, 2024, the Minister remains committed to forging strategic partnerships that will elevate Nigeria’s aviation industry on the global stage.

Primate Ayodele’s Prophecy On Chad Presidential Election Comes To Pass

Primate Ayodele’s Prophecy On Chad Presidential Election Comes To Pass

 

 

The Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has yet again been celebrated for the fulfillment of his prophecy on the just concluded Chad presidential election.

The election saw the incumbent head of state, Idriss Deby becoming victorious.

Chad’s state election body said interim President Mahamat Idriss Deby won the 6 May presidential election outright with over 61 per cent of the vote, citing provisional results, even as his main challenger declared himself the winner.

This is in fulfillment of Primate Ayodele’s prophecy which he repeatedly shared about the outcome of the presidential election. Several prophecies of Primate Ayodele about Chad have come to pass already and the victory of Idriss Deby is just an addition to them.

Most recent of his prophecy regarding the election was the one he shared earlier this month, a few days about the election making it known that the interim leader would win the election but there will be more issues to contend with in his administration.

Just like in his previous prophecies, Primate Ayodele assured Deby of victory in the election but warned him to be careful of attacks and attempt to truncate his government.

These were his words

‘’In Chad, Idriss will win the election but there will be a gang up against him. There will be attempts to truncate his government, despite the fact that his government will have international backings. He has good intentions but there will be complications politically.’’

In earlier prophecies, Primate Ayodele revealed that the election would favor the interim leader and that some opposition leaders would be disqualified from participating in the election. The prophet’s prophecy came through with the barring of some candidates.

‘’Chad: there will be political rowdiness, they will want to disqualify some candidates and there will be electoral violation. Mahamat Idriss Deby Itno will still have an edge except there’s a coalition. He will have an edge over other candidates. They should pray against the crisis during and after the election. New terrorist will come up in Chad, they will face a bigger security challenges.’’

Also, in a video interview, the prophet advised an opposition candidate, Succes Masra not to waste his money because the ruling party will win.

‘’Idriss will win, I am seeing Masra Succes wasting his money and energy, the ruling party will win’’
