How Pro. TB Joshua influenced George Weah’s Victory as President. ” I am deeply Grateful”

Published

on

51 year old  George Weah has emerged President-elect of Liberia after the run off election on Tuesday,  December 26th, 2017.

The former World Footballer of the Year won thirteen out of fifteen counties, thus becoming the 25th President of Liberia.

Interestingly, his victory is not unconnected to the fact that he sought for spiritual help and prayers from internationally acclaimed prophet, T.B Joshua on Sunday, October 24th,  2017.

We reliably gathered that the footballer turned politician came purposely to prevent a reoccurrence of fate when he lost to president  Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in the 2005 rerun election after his initial victory.

Insiders revealed that the humble clergy told him the mind of God which he adhered to and ensure his victory in the just concluded rerun. Also, we learnt that his visit influenced his victory as Liberians believe so much in Pro. TB Joshua as  the mouthpiece of God for this generation.  Thus,  other presidential candidates rallied round to accept George Weah as the one chosen by God.

“I am deeply grateful to my family, my friends, and my loyal supporters who contributed to our campaign during this extremely long election season,” Weah said on Twitter before the results were announced.

Weah is set to replace Africa’s first female head of state, economist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

His inauguration would be the first time power was transferred from one democratically elected government to another.

It would be recalled that George Weah  was at the Sunday Church service of the The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos, Nigeria.

The famous Liberian Senator was said to have come to the Church service to “seek God’s face” for his country.

During the sermon by Pastor T.B. Joshua which was broadcast live on popular Christian channel Emmanuel TV, Joshua warmly welcomed Weah and spoke directly to him.

“My brother is here today because he loves his country and wants God’s choice for his country,” Joshua stated.

“He is not here to impose himself. What does God say about his country, Liberia? What is God’s opinion? That is why he is here.”

The cleric went further to reiterate that he was not favoring any particular side of the political spectrum but his own role was to pray for “the will of God” to be done in the nation of Liberia

“We are not herbalists or witch-doctors; we are people of God. God’s choice is our choice. We cannot pray against God’s will,” Joshua stressed, with Weah nodding firmly in agreement

“Without God’s corresponding power, we cannot pray to Him. For every step we take – every movement and action – intimation comes first,” Joshua further expounded.

“There must be suggestion from the Spirit to move before we move. If truly I am a man of God, I must hear from God – move or don’t move.”

Joshua, who is known for political neutrality, noted that Liberia’s incumbent Vice President and Weah’s contender in the upcoming presidential run-off, Joseph Boakai had also contacted him to request a meeting.

“God’s opinion is what we should seek in our country – simple! God is the Answer, the Final,” the influential Nigerian pastor added.

Also present in the service was Senator Yormie Johnson, a former Liberian war lord and also one of the nation’s prominent presidential candidates.

Joshua was instrumental in Johnson’s conversion to Christianity and mediated his reconciliation with the family of the late Liberian President, Samuel Doe.

“You cannot twist or bribe God; He is not a man… The best place to go is to meet people God has given the grace to be a communicator between visible and invisible,” Joshua concluded. “Meet them and let them tell you what is the way out – the next thing to do.”

Other prominent visitors to The SCOAN in the past have included Tanzania’s President, John Magufuli, the late President of Ghana, John Atta Mills, Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangarai and Julius Malema, South Africa’s fiery opposition leader.

Kano Court Ruling: It Is Sanusi’s Destiny Not To Be Emir Again – Professor Mefor

Kano Court Ruling: It Is Sanusi’s Destiny Not To Be Emir Again – Professor Mefor

 

 

Professor Law Mefor, a renowned political analyst, says Justice Abdullahi Liman’s landmark ruling annulling the reinstatement of Sanusi Lamido as Emir of Kano suggests his fate is not tied to the throne.

Mefor, in an interview on Arise TV, said Governor Abba Yusuf’s assent to the amended Kano Emirate law and Sanusi’s reinstatement defied a court order, demonstrating disregard for the rule of law.

 

Kano Court Ruling: It Is Sanusi's Destiny Not To Be Emir Again - Professor Mefor

According to him, Sanusi’s initial dethroning was a consequence of his actions, which contravened traditional and legal norms.

He, therefore, said the court’s overturning of all actions taken after the amended law was passed, including Sanusi’s appointment, has sealed his fate.

“The judge ruled for a return to status quo, and the interpretation is clear; go back to where the matter was before it came before me,” Professor Mefor said.

“The status of the Kano Emirate before the matter was brought before the court was Emir Ado Bayero in charge.”

He added: “Some of us were not happy that Sanusi went to become the Emir of Kano, knowing fully well that he was an asset to the nation.

“He is an activist and intellect who offers more at the national level. He’s not supposed to handle a subdued role where he cannot express himself. His reinstatement is very controversial”.

The governor’s action, according to Professor Mefor, “was only trying to fulfil his campaign promises, but this should have been done by following the due process of the law. Why the rush? Follow the law.”

He emphasised that “to go ahead to reinstate him against a subsisting order is an invitation to anarchy, knowing the volatility of Kano. History has repeated itself.”

Professor Mefor stressed that “we must allow the rule of law to take its course. Sanusi’s destiny lies elsewhere, and Kano State can now move forward in peace.”

UK richest family jailed

UK richest family jailed

UK richest family jailed

 

 

 

Sadly, the richest family in Uk is in a mess. A Swiss court handed jail sentences to four members of Britain’s richest family on Friday for exploiting Indian staff at their Geneva mansion.

The Hindujas — who were not present in court — were acquitted of human trafficking, but convicted on other charges in a stunning verdict for the family whose fortune is estimated at 37 billion pounds ($47 billion).

 

 

Prakash Hinduja and his wife Kamal Hinduja each got four years and six months, while their son Ajay and his wife Namrata received four-year terms, the presiding judge in Geneva ruled.

 

 

The cases stem from the family’s practice of bringing servants from their native India and included accusations of confiscating their passports once they were flown to Switzerland.

 

 

Prosecutors argued the Hindujas paid their staff a pittance and gave them little freedom to leave the house.

The family denied the allegations, claiming the prosecutors wanted to “do in the Hindujas”.

The Hindujas reached a confidential out-of-court settlement with the three employees who made the accusations against them.

 

 

Despite this, the prosecution decided to pursue the case due to the gravity of the charges.

Geneva prosecutor Yves Bertossa had requested a custodial sentence of five and a half years against Prakash and Kamal Hinduja.

Aged 78 and 75 respectively, both had been absent since the start of the trial for health reasons.

In his closing address, the prosecutor accused the family of abusing the “asymmetrical situation” between powerful employer and vulnerable employee to save money.

Household staff were paid a salary between 220 and 400 francs ($250-450) a month, far below what they could expect to earn in Switzerland.

 

 

“They’re profiting from the misery of the world,” Bertossa told the court.

– ‘Not mistreated slaves’ –

 

But the Hinduja family’s defence lawyers argued that the three plaintiffs received ample benefits, were not kept in isolation and were free to leave the villa.

“We are not dealing with mistreated slaves,” Nicolas Jeandin told the court.

Indeed, the employees “were grateful to the Hindujas for offering them a better life”, his fellow lawyer Robert Assael argued.

Representing Ajay Hinduja, lawyer Yael Hayat had slammed the “excessive” indictment, arguing the trial should be a question of “justice, not social justice”.

Namrata Hinduja’s lawyer Romain Jordan also pleaded for acquittal, claiming the prosecutors were aiming to make an example of the family.

He argued the prosecution had failed to mention payments made to staff on top of their cash salaries.

“No employee was cheated out of his or her salary,” Assael added.

 

Some staff even asked for raises, which they received.

With interests in oil and gas, banking and healthcare, the Hinduja Group is present in 38 countries and employs around 200,000 people.
