Ahead of the October 10 governorship election in Ondo State, the Lagos State Governor and Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) National Campaign Council for Ondo State Governorship Election, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Monday joined the campaign train and solicited support for the APC and its candidate, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN).

Speaking during a campaign rally in Okitipupa Local Government Area in Ondo State on Monday, Governor Sanwo-Olu said APC administration in Ondo State had performed creditably well and therefore deserved a re-election for continuity. He called on the electorate to re-elect Governor Akeredolu for a second term in office.

He said Governor Akeredolu has performed very well during his first term in office by delivering on his electoral promises, especially in the areas of good governance, road construction, infrastructure and provision of dividends of democracy to the people of Ondo State.

The Lagos State Governor who travelled several kilometres, covering several major towns including Ore and Okitipupa for the campaign rally to drum up support for Akeredolu and deputy Mr. Lucky Aiyedatiwa, said the people should believe in what their Governor Akeredolu has done in less than four years in office and reward him with their votes in next Saturday’s election. Sanwo-Olu said he is very optimistic that APC will win the poll.

Speaking during a meeting with traditional rulers in Okitipupa Local Government Area of the State, Governor Sanwo-Olu implored the monarchs to join the entire Ondo State traditional rulers in working for Akeredolu as promised during the APC campaign flag-off in Akure on Saturday, September 5.

The Lagos State Governor said the entire APC leadership at national, South-West zone and state levels are solidly behind Akeredolu’s re-election bid and therefore urged the people of Ondo South Senatorial District to support APC.

He said: “as the Chairman of the APC National Campaign Council, it is not enough for me to listen to the news about Ondo. I have come here to see things for myself and I’m very happy at what I have seen here.”

“When Governor Akeredolu commissioned the Ore flyover I wasn’t around then but when I got there recently I was surprised. It shows Governor Akeredolu is really working in Ondo State.”

“I have come here to campaign for my brother based on the good work he has been doing and we see that he deserves another four years. APC governors in the South-West are solidly behind him. All of us in APC are fully in support of him.”

Sanwo-Olu reiterated during a campaign rally at Methodist Primary School in Okitipupa, that Akeredolu was ready to surpass his own expectations, thereby urging the electorate to vote for APC and defend their ballot.

Governor Sanwo-Olu, who appreciated the support of the Ikale indigenes in Lagos to his election victory during the 2019 gubernatorial poll, assured people of Ondo State that Lagos State Government would collaborate more with Ondo State to bring development to the two States.

Governor Akeredolu while addressing the traditional rulers in Okitipupa said it is God that has given him the ability to work in the last three years for the good people of Ondo State, especially in Okitipupa Local Government Area.

Speaking on the perennial black out in Ondo South Senatorial district, Governor Akeredolu promised that his administration would not relent until electricity returns fully to the area.

He also disclosed that the contract that will give birth to the electrification project in the area would be signed tomorrow (Tuesday).

Speaking on behalf of the traditional rulers, the Abodi of Ikaleland, Oba George Faduyile, assured that Governor Akeredolu has no problem as far as the people of Ikale are concerned, declaring that the people of the area would vote massively for Governor Akeredolu on October 10.

Oba Faduyile who charged eligible voters in the state to vote for Governor Akeredolu, said the APC led government in Ondo State has done well in the last three years.

– bill will create comprehensive database of Lagos state

Sahara Weekly Reports That A new bill that seeks to harmonise all geographic information service projects of Lagos is under consideration at the State House of Assembly.

The Lagos Geographic Information Service bill, which had stakeholders making contributions on Friday, is also aimed at establishing a computerised central database for all information relating to geospatial matters and related issues.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Section 4(2) of the bill says the agency’s responsibilities include introducing, implementing and sustaining best practices for all Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in the state as well as “develop and maintain an online platform that will contain all information and statistics on geospatial-related matters.”

Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, said the bill, when passed, would help in improving governance and boosting professionalism.

 

“It is targeted at integrating governance with advancements in technology. This is something we hope to always take advantage of so that our state can continue to be ahead in the area of development,” Dr. Obasa, represented by Hon. Stephen Ogundipe, a member of the House, said adding that the Assembly will always make the residents of the state its focal point.

 

Chairman of the House Committee on Physical Planning and Urban Development, Hon. Ogunkelu Sylvester, said the bill “shows a commitment and sincere

sense of duty on the part of the legislators of the state to put people’s interest at heart.

 

“Today’s public hearing means a lot to the improvement of

information technology and computerised central database in Lagos State.”

 

Ogunkelu, who represents Epe Constituency 2 at the House, described it as a bill that will cover the database of Lagos just as he commended the Speaker for his passion for the progress of the State.

 

“The bill will guide the government to have a database of everything concerning Lagos and in this case, you could be in your house and apply for a certificate of ownership on your property and have it without even visiting the Ministry.

 

“It will also cut sharp practices and curb fraudulent sales of land. For land, the database will have details of owners including their photographs,” he said.

 

Rasheed Makinde, a former lawmaker, commended the House for its proactiveness while some of the stakeholders suggested the involvement of professional bodies in the proposed law.

Go Back Home and Contest Proper Elections Again, APC Group Tells Former Rivers Lawmaker

The All Progressives Congress (APC) Youth Frontier has advised the members of the Rivers State Assembly whose seats were recently declared vacant to go back and contest new elections.

Denouncing the lawmakers, the Lagos-based group in a statement on Tuesday said their defection from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is a betrayal of the trust and mandate given to them.

Signed by its national president, Comrade Ajani Martins, the statement further described the defectors as political prostitutes who have no place in the APC.

According to Martins, their defection is not only morally wrong but a clear sign of their lack of principles and integrity.

Martins, therefore, said the ruling party doesn’t support such illegality and treachery, adding that those who voted for them deserve better.

“We have followed the political crisis in Rivers State and actions taken by major actors, including the assembly members,” the statement said.

“Our great party condemns in the strongest terms the treacherous defection of the 25 Parliamentarians. This act of political prostitution is a betrayal of the trust and mandate given to them by their party and the people.

“We reject and disown them and their selfish interests, which have led them to abandon the principles and values that their party stands for. It is clear that they lack commitment to any party’s ideals and have shown willingness to sacrifice the interests of their people for personal gain.

“We will not tolerate such treachery and will take all necessary steps to ensure that those who have betrayed the trust of the people are held accountable. We trust our party to continue to stand firm on our principles and values, and we will not be swayed by the selfish interests of a few individuals.

“To our loyal members and supporters, we urge you to remain steadfast and committed to our party’s cause. We will continue to work tirelessly to serve the interests of our people and to build a better future for our nation.

“We value loyalty, commitment, and dedication to our party’s principles and values, and we cannot guarantee that those who have abandoned their previous party affiliations share these qualities.

“We, therefore, advise the lawmakers to return home and re-contest. As it stands, they have lost their seats in the House. Our party doesn’t support illegality.“

The Efficacy Of Primate Ayodele’s Prophetic Ministry Travels To Slovakia

*The Efficacy Of Primate Ayodele’s Prophetic Ministry Travels To Slovakia*

Unarguably, there’s virtually no continent or country in the world that the prophetic ministry of Primate Elijah Ayodele of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church hasn’t touched.

As Jesus Christ gave an instruction to His disciples to go into the world and preach the gospel to every part of the world, Primate Ayodele’s prophetic ministry which is rooted in Jesus Christ, has gone beyond his immediate environment to the uttermost part of the Earth.

Primate Ayodele practically runs a ministry without walls and boundaries; there is no limit to what he can prophecy about; God has placed in his hands a prophetic ministry that speaks to even the most unpopular nation as long as air reaches there.

Interestingly, the value his prophecies donate to Earth has earned him the title of a leading prophet in the world; a prophetic icon whose prophecies never cease to come to pass. With about 15,000 fulfilled prophecies to his credit, Primate Ayodele has taken a permanent seat as the most influential and accurate prophet in the world.

To further cement his wide reach as a prophet for all nation, his 2024 prophecy regarding an assassination attempt on a serving prime ministry was fulfilled yesterday in Slovakia, a central Europe country.

Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico suffered life-threatening injuries when he was shot and wounded in an attempted assassination on Wednesday, the government office said.

Fico, 59, was shot five times in the central town of Handlova on Wednesday. He was in critical condition and underwent several hours of emergency surgery.

The incident shocked Slovakia, a small central European nation with little history of political violence.

Primate Ayodele in his 2024 prophecies regarding ‘The World At Large’ called for prayers against the assassination of a prime minister.

‘’The voice of the Lord whispered to me that in 2024 we must pray against the assassination of a sitting President, a former President, a Prime Minister and a former Prime Minister whose assassination will be successful. Let us pray against a coup in Africa or mounting pressure or uprising that can lead to the removal of a sitting President. The spirit of God says there will be a lot of financial crises globally’’

At the time he shared this prophecy, some critics even went as far as misquoting him to prove a pointless point but undoubtedly, now that it has happened in Slovakia, they will have no choice that to agree with the credibility of Primate Ayodele.

Furthermore on the international scene, Primate Ayodele’s prophecies on the Israel-Palestine war seem like a script of what is currently happening. Before the war started, the prophet warned world leaders to work against escalation that will lead to the death of people but they didn’t listen and just some months after the prophecy, the war began.

He had also said that Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanhyahu will not kowtow in his plans to attack Rafah, a Palestine city. In fulfillment of this, Rafah was attacked some weeks ago by the Israeli army. Additionally, the death of Alice Munro, a Nobel Laureate was foretold by him.

Continuing, the attack on Muslims while praying in a mosque in Kano yesterday is another fulfillment of Primate Ayodele’s prophecy. During an interview session towards the end of last year, the prophet asked Nigerians to pray against attacks of people in religious gatherings.

Summarily, Primate Ayodele’s prophetic ministry has added so much value to life and is worth every accolade given to him. As a Nigerian, he has continued to fulfill his ministerial obligation by frequently releasing prophecies and as a global icon, He has proven his credibility.
