Obasanjo to bridge gap between old and new generations – Cleric



As American-Africans Promise Investments

A prophetic message that the former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo will be one God will use to bridge the gap between the country’s old generation and the new one has been revealed.

The President of the African Economic Empowerment Initiative (AEEI), His Eminence (Archbishop) Samson Mustapha Benjamin made the revelation, when he joined delegation of the Nigerian Association for Young Adults of Canada (NAYA), the Polling Units Ambassadors of Nigeria (PUAN) and some American-Africans on a courtesy visit on Obasanjo at his Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) Abeokuta.

The development came even as the leader of the American-Africans team and President of California Congressional Black Caucus, Dr. Zyra Macloud promised to initiate investments to Nigeria using the pedigree and personality of the former President in order to create job opportunities in the country.

The man of God, who declared that there was no pre conversation with Obasanjo before the meeting, said that the role to be played by him was sacrosanct and could not be changed.

“Nigeria knows him and he knows Nigeria. That is who Obasanjo is. At every junction of Nigeria’s history, he is a divine destiny. You still have a lot to do for Nigeria. Before I drop the microphone, the truth is that you still have a task to achieve, to do this country.

“Whether they like it or not, you will still be alive to achieve the task. You will be alive to bridge the gap between the old generation and the new generation. It will be one task that it is like standing between the living and the dead. The Sun will soon set on the old generation and the Sun will rise on the new generation. And the man that will be in the center of this is Olusegun Obasanjo.

“You may not have been told, but, but I am very sure that in your dreams, aspirations and no matter what ever anybody feels this task must be achieved. Even if death comes here now, death has to excuse you to accomplish your mission for Nigeria. And if you all look at him, as i am speaking, he has already given himself up. I am only opening the book of the future,” Benjamin said.

The National President of NAYA, Shola Agboola had earlier explained that the group was in the country to further tap on the pedigree of the former President to seek the American-Africans interest in bringing investments to Nigeria.

According to Agboola, NAYA has partnered with several reputable international organizations to carry out many of its socio-economic programmes and intervention in virtually all the geo-political zones of the country with social investment worth several hundreds of millions of dollars.

‘Some items donated in Osun State, Oyo State, Abia State, Ogun State, Imo State, Bayelsa States, Kebbi state e.t.c include free medical equipment and supplies, hundreds of laptop and desk-top computers, hundred of thousands of post-secondary & primary textbooks to many schools as well as thousands of clothing to people in rural areas.

“We have been using your name to achieve all these. And we believe that with your presence today in the midst of the California Congressional Black Caucus, with the President personally present, I want to believe that they are convinced to come forward with their plan to bring investments to Nigeria,” Agboola said.

The President of California Congressional Black Caucus, Dr. Zyra Macloud who could not hide her feeling for meeting with Obasanjo and coming to Nigeria for the first time, assured that the United Department of Commerce was aware of the visit, which is meant to bring investments to Nigeria in order to create job opportunities.

Obasanjo while reacting to Archbishop Benjamin’s prophecy, said it is only God that can make all things possible.

He posited that it was only important to learn from the mistake of the past, stressing, “and it is only a wise man that learn from the mistake of the past. May God grant each and every one of us the wisdom to move this country forward.

“God will never give you a task without providing the necessary wherewithal to accomplish the task. We shall continue to pray for this,” Obasanjo said.

Members of the California delegation include, the Executive member of the International Black Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Eddie McCloud, Ms Arlise Hamilton, Mr. Kenneth Eywrick and Amb. Capt. Dabas Suleiman, the Ambassador General of the Polling Unit of Nigeria (PUAN).

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’’
