The promoter, Dr Adeyemo who disclosed this in a chat with newsmen in his office at the Pelican Valley Estate Laderin, said the anchor persons will use the avenue to highlight the vision, mission and activities of the Foundation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to him, there will be a meeting with no fewer than 100 widows at The Podium immediately after the Executive media briefing and this segment will feature education and enlightenment talks on aging, age related health issues and effective coping strategies for widows.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This session will be handled by health consultants, Pelican Valley Brand Ambassador and Mr. Lanre Jaji who has authored a book on aging.

He revealed his long term plans for the widows, saying he will keep the Register of the widows for necessary follow up, and also facilitate the provision of modest housing accommodations for most vonourable widows in the long run – comprising one bedroom and two – bedroom studio apartments, to be built within an acre of land he had donated for that purpose.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fielding questions from newsmen about the rationale behind the Oko Opo Foundation, he said, “I have a covenant with God that I want to dedecate my heart and soul towards given hope to the widows . We are already leading by example because apart from distributing some materials, we built the podium purposely because of the foundation. We actually want to make it a long term as what I will do for the rest of my life and my children can also take over from me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I don’t want the foundation to look political because if we do that, we will find ourselves in politics without knowing and I don’t want to do politics that is why I set up the foundation. I want to touch the life of people directly. The only two ways you can touch the life of people is through politics or having a Foundation, and I don’t want to do politics that is why I’m opting for Foundation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“People often get it wrong that settingup a foundation shouldbe a springboard to politicking. If you want to go into politics, join politics, because politics itself is a charity work; it ought not to be something you will do and collecting salary. For me, politics is like you are protecting the people, the economy and the world from imminent collapse. When you are protecting the economy, it is akin to protecting the whole world and source of sustenance of humanity but most people don’t get it right.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Politics shouldn’t be about self interest and that is why I set up this foundation and I don’t want to invite politicians but whoever that wants to support the Foundation can support without expecting reciprocation or any gesture because even me that set it up is not expecting anything. I could have used the money I have to buy exotic cars or travel abroad. Though, I don’t have money in my account but out of none, we are still trying to cater for people that we believe are most vulnerable in the society. Instead of using the money for vacation with my family, I would rather spend the money on the needy.” Dr. Adeyemo said.

Goodwill Message from Otunba Fola Ogunmefun, National Head of NBM of Africa Worldwide, on the Occasion of June 12 Democracy Day Celebrations

 

 

 

 

 

As we celebrate this historic day, we must acknowledge the immense challenges our nation continues to face.

Enhanced security measures, economic reforms, and policies that create job opportunities are essential steps toward a more prosperous and secure Nigeria. The well-being of the masses should always be at the forefront of governance.

Happy Democracy Day, Nigeria!

Healing Stream Testimonies at Apostle Suleman’s ‘Wonders Without Number’ June 2024 Service

Healing Stream Testimonies at Apostle Suleman’s ‘Wonders Without Number’ June 2024 Service

At a recent prophetic service held by popular servant of God and General Overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries (OFM) worldwide, Apostle Johnson Suleman, great testimonies were shared, ones that will help build believers’ faith and trust in The Lord, with all their heart, mind and soul.

 

While validating the effectiveness of miracles in the life of man during the service, Apostle Suleman affirmed that, even in the most unpredictable situations, nothing is impossible for Jesus to restore. He said in his lecture that, sometimes, while praying for a particular miracle for a long time, we lose hope and question whether it will happen. But when we put our trust in Jesus, He makes it happen at the right time.

 

A young man, Nkem, from Kaduna State, gave his testimony:

“I joined the OFM prayer platform from inception. I want to thank God for the uncommon favour and for healing me of kidney and liver infections. I called the platform center for prayers and applied the oil Papa had blessed on my body. To the glory of God, both kidney and liver infection disappeared; I have been confirmed to be medically okay. Thank you Jesus.”

 

Tracy from Russia says:

“I give God all the glory for healing me of strange rashes on my body. I tabled this issue to God on this prayer altar and also kept applying the oil blessed by Papa on my body. To my amazement, the rashes have disappeared without leaving any mark. Secondly, I am overjoyed because God has restored love and peace among my siblings.”

 

Dickson, a Cameroonian resident in Bahrain:

“In the month of March, 2024, my dreams were so polluted to the extent that I was afraid to even close my eyes. Papa raised a prayer about polluted dreams and since then I have not experienced it again. I thank God for my spiritual life, my prayer life and word study has improved a lot.”

 

Joy Oluebube from Nigeria:

“Papa mentioned my name and my case, specifically! I want to thank the God of ‘Wonders Without Number’. He said; “Joy Oluebube any arrow of death fashioned against you, be destroyed in Jesus name.” Indeed, God delivered me from an attack that would have taken my life. Thank you Jesus, my time has come!”

 

Yvette from United States healed of breast lumps:

“I always connect to Papa’s prayer for the sick. I was diagnosed with breast cysts, so I usually went to the hospital to withdraw the fluid. To the glory of God, on the 13th April, I touched my breast, looking for the lumps but lo and behold the lumps were nowhere to be found. They had disappeared.”

 

Alice from France:

“In February 2024, I sent in a prayer request for God to provide a good job for my husband in a good location. Glory to God, my husband has gotten a good permanent job in a wonderful location.”

 

Precious Chikamnele from Lagos:

“I want to thank God for miraculously exempting me from the list of those that were sacked in my office. Some of my colleagues rumoured that my name was included in the list but the God of Apostle Suleman disappointed all expectations. I give God all the glory.”

 

Lilian Cyril from Abuja:

“I joined WWN in December 2023 and since then my prayer life has changed. Papa, on the 19th of April, you said that someone is bleeding and you prayed for divine healing. I received my healing, to the glory of God, bleeding of one month stopped instantly. Thank you Jesus.”

 

Tsalach from Ghana’s heavy debt settled:

“I owed a huge amount (school fees). But since we joined this family, that has been a thing of the past, the school fees of my brother and I are being paid on time through miracle money.”

 

Israel from Edo State:

“I am grateful to God for healing me of ulcer pains after joining ‘Wonders Without Number’ prayer on 15th April 2024. Thank you Jesus for healing me.”

 

Apostle Suleman pontificates that, as Christians, we pray because we believe God is listening and that He will answer our petitions according to His perfect plans. Therefore, believers need to advance in their spiritual discernment and sensitivity. “With every decision in life, God is trying to get our attention. If we could develop a constant awareness of His presence, our life will be more meaningful.”
