Prophet Israel Oladele Ogundipe, widely recognized as “Unstoppable Genesis”, an esteemed spiritual leader, seeks to convey a heartfelt congratulatory message to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the newly elected President of Nigeria. With reverence for the spiritual aspects of leadership transitions, The respectable man of God aims to infuse his message with sacred scriptures that emphasize the significance of divine guidance during the handover from an outgoing administration to a new one.

 

 

 

 

 

*The Wisdom of Solomon: Gaining Insight for Leadership*

 

 

 

Drawing inspiration from the Book of Proverbs, Prophet Israel Oladele Ogundipe (Unstoppable Genesis) reminds President Tinubu of the wisdom imparted by King Solomon. The scriptures highlight the importance of seeking divine wisdom, discernment, and understanding as a leader. Prophet Genesis encourages President Tinubu to embrace this wisdom and approach his new role with humility, compassion, and a genuine desire to serve the people of Nigeria.

 

 

 

 

_Proverbs 2:6-7 (NIV)_
_”For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless.”_

*Joshua’s Leadership Transition: A Lesson in Faith and Courage*

Referencing the Book of Joshua, Prophet Genesis shares the story of Joshua’s succession after Moses, emphasizing the role of faith and courage during times of transition. As President Tinubu assumes leadership, he is encouraged to trust in divine guidance, just as Joshua relied on God’s promises and guidance to lead the Israelites into the Promised Land. The message underscores the importance of faith, resilience, and steadfastness in the face of challenges that may arise during the transition period.

_Joshua 1:9 (NIV)_
_”Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”_

*Seeking Divine Direction in Decision-Making*

Prophet Genesis emphasizes the significance of seeking divine direction in decision-making, as highlighted in the book of James. Through prayer, meditation, and reflection, President Tinubu is encouraged to rely on God’s wisdom and guidance when faced with crucial choices that will shape the future of Nigeria. The message underscores the power of divine intervention in providing clarity, discernment, and the ability to make righteous decisions for the benefit of the nation.

_James 1:5 (NIV)_
_”If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”_

*Humility and Servant Leadership*

Referring to the teachings of Jesus in the Gospels, Prophet Genesis highlights the importance of humility and servant leadership. President Tinubu is reminded of the example set by Jesus, who washed the feet of his disciples, symbolizing the humility and selflessness required of leaders. Prophet Genesis encourages President Tinubu to prioritize the needs of the Nigerian people, demonstrating compassion, fairness, and a genuine desire to serve the nation.

_Matthew 20:26-28 (NIV)_
_”Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”_

By relying on God’s guidance, President Tinubu can navigate the challenges of leadership, make wise decisions, and work towards the betterment of Nigeria. As he assumes his role, Prophet Genesis encourages President Tinubu to embrace the spiritual dimensions of leadership, ensuring that his actions are guided by humility, compassion, and a genuine commitment to serve the Nigerian people.

Village infested with terrorists, civilians’ death tragic — DHQ

Director of Defence Media Operations, Major General Edward Buba, who made this known in a statement said this is why communities are to always alert troops of terrorists’ activities particularly when such a community is known to be infested with terrorists and their sympathisers.

DHQ said: “Such tragedies are needless and unwanted, which causes the armed forces to take extensive measures to avoid them.”

“It noted that terrorists often deliberately embed themselves within civilian population centres in order for the civilian population to bear the consequences of their atrocities.

The statement titled: “On Air Strike On Ligarma Village in Kaduna State,” read in part: “On 3 Dec 2023, at about 2200hrs and based on untoward activities by terrorists, The NA UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) detachment observed movement of terrorists at Ligarma, a terrorist-infested area of Kaduna State.

“Aerial surveillance captured movement of groups of persons synonymous with the terrorists’ tactics and modus operandi. The observed advance of the terrorists that were gathered posted a threat to key infrastructure within reach of the on-toward activities.

“Accordingly, the threat was eliminated to prevent the terrorists from unleashing terror on innocent civilians.

“The armed forces will continue to operate consistent with international law as it always has done.

“It will also continue its determined and cautious progress in eradicating terrorists from our land.

“These terrorists as part of their tactics disguise themselves as civilians to perpetrate terror.

“Accordingly, we will continue to find innovative solutions to the challenges faced in the conduct of operations.”

Tinubu orders thorough investigation, calls for calm

Disturbed by the incident, President Tinubu, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Chief Ajuri Ngelale, directed all relevant security agencies to carry out a thorough and full-fledged investigation on the bomb mishap, and also called for calm while the authorities look diligently into the mishap.

The COAS expressed regrets on the unfortunate mishap, describing it as a very disheartening occurrence.

District Head of Rigasa, Architect Aminu Idris, in his remarks said despite the enormity of the incident, the Nigerian Army showed integrity in accepting responsibility for the drone strike and urged its leadership to intervene in bringing succour to hospitalized victims and the community for their losses.

 

 

He maintained that the community is a mixed community of both Muslims and Christians and that the victims are of both faith, contrary to earlier insinuation that the community is solely Muslim.

General Lagbaja also commiserated with the Chairman Jamaa’ atu Nasru Islam, Kaduna State Prof Shafiu Abdullahi and other clerics.

The Chief of Army Staff equally visited affected victims at the Barua Dikko Teaching Hospital Anguwan Rimi, Kaduna, where he expressed concern for their speedy recuperation and made an immediate donation of several provisions for their upkeep.

Why UK Banned Healthcare Workers From Bringing Families

Why UK Banned Healthcare Workers From Bringing Families

Why UK Banned Healthcare Workers From Bringing Families

 

 

 

 

Britain’s government has unveiled a raft of measures aimed at reducing “unprecedented” and “unsustainable” levels of legal migration to the United Kingdom (UK), including banning healthcare workers from bringing their families and dependants to the UK.

 

 

Why UK Banned Healthcare Workers From Bringing Families

 

On Monday, a statement issued by the Home Office said the new plan to slash migration levels and curb abuse of the immigration system would deliver the biggest-ever reduction in the country’s net migration.

 

 

 

 

According to the Home Office, the revision will encourage “businesses to look to British talent first and invest in their workforce”, helping UK to deter employers from over-relying on migration, whilst bringing salaries in line with the average full-time salary for these types of jobs.

 

 

 

 

 

Interior Secretary, James Cleverly, said his plan would result in 300,000 fewer people coming to the UK in the coming years.

 

 

 

 

Under plans set out by Cleverly, workers would need to earn at least £38,700 to obtain a visa, up from £26,200, while care workers would be barred from bringing in dependants from next April.

 

 

 

 

He said, “The first of our five points will be to end the abuse of the care visa. We will stop overseas care workers from bringing family, dependants and we will require firms in England to be regulated by the Health Care Quality Commission in order for them to sponsor visas.

 

 

 

 

 

“Approximately, £120,000 dependants accompanied £100,000 care workers in the year ending September 2023, but only 25% of the dependants are estimated to be in work, meaning that a significant number are joining public services rather than helping to grow the economy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“We recognize that healthcare workers do great work in our NHIS and health sector, but it’s also important that immigrants make a big enough financial contribution. Therefore, it will increase annual immigration healthcare charge by 66% from £624 to £1035 to raise, on average, £1.3 billion for the country’s health services every year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Second, we will stop immigration undercutting the salary of British workers. We will increase skilled workers’ earning threshold by a third to £38,000 from next spring in line with the medium, full-term wage for those kinds of jobs.

 

 

 

 

“Those coming on social and health visas will be exempt, so we will continue to bring healthcare workers.

 

 

 

 

 

“Finally, having already banned overseas masters students’ from bringing family members to the UK, I have asked the Immigration Advisory Committee to revise the graduates’ rate to prevent abuse, to protect the integrity and quality of the UK’s outstanding higher education sector. It needs to work in the best interest of the UK, supporting the pathway into high-quality jobs in the global talent pool and reducing opportunities for abuse.”
