2023 Presidency: Shun Politics, Tinubu A Relevant Factor To Yoruba Agenda – Ajanaku To Monarchs

Published

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, Asiwaju Rotimi Ajanaku has described the National Leader of the party and former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as a relevant factor in the actualization of Yoruba unity and agenda ahead of 2023 general elections.

Ajanaku made this declaration via a statement issued in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, a copy of which was made available by his Media Aide, Prince Adebowale Adeoye on Sunday.

Ajanaku while admonishing Yoruba traditional rulers to stay away from politics and any act that can tarnish their hard earned respect, dignity and integrity, described Tinubu as an indispensable catalyst to the actualization of Yoruba agenda in 2023 Presidential election and beyond.

While speaking on the chances of the Yoruba in the 2023 Presidency, Ajanaku insisted that there was no basis for anyone in the region to team up against the former Lagos state Governor when no one has actually established any of the baseless allegations raised by his accusers.

He said “As Asiwaju Odo Oodua (Oodua Youths Leader), it becomes imperative that I speak on issues affecting South West states and Oodua agenda ahead of 2023 as well as unwarranted discussion on Tinubu’s presidential ambition, subsequent attacks on his person by some uninformed people and those planted by antagonists to draw the progress and advancement of southwest region backward.

“Can anyone tell me the essence of teaming up against Tinubu when no one has actually established any of the baseless allegations raised by his accusers. Having cold-bloodedness against Tinubu especially now when Yoruba ought to work together in realization of its projection in 2023 is unwarranted and against the spirit of our ancestors.

“Should we allow few politicians to deprive yorubas of our right just because of differences or rancor between them and Tinubu? How sure are we that it is not a case of enviness, rivalry, or jealousy. I am not against the idea of criticizing Tinubu, but there is need to make whatever criticism they like to engage in to be constructive. We shouldn’t tolerate baseless and damaging criticism at this time.

“Whether we say Yoruba agenda or Yoruba nation, but are political issues and talking politics in Nigeria today, Tinubu is a Generallisimo and number one in the Southwest. So a personality who is that relevant should be protected from political termites, looking for cheap means of gaining popularity and subsequently get their pocket loaded with dollars by their paymaster.

“Some of Tinubu’s accusers are not legitimate Oduduwans, some are planted to destroy Oduduwa structure like the case of Afonja-Alimi rebellion in Ilorin, some are envious of his achievements and his political strength is a big threat to some. We have some people who are being bereaved of ideas. In the past few weeks, a spate of reckless and malicious falsehoods, defamatory and misleading statements have been peddled in the media against Asiwaju Tinubu by various cliques”.

Ajanaku warned his kinsmen and traditional rulers against any move that can jeopardise the chances of the South West to get Presidency in 2023.

“As custodians of culture, moral values and belief, Yoruba Obas should be upright in the protection, defense and promotion of Oduduwa territory and inhabitants. This is the more reason I’m of the opinion that our royal fathers should stay clear of active politics to enable them judiciously play the role of fathers and leaders as expected of them without favourism.

“Yoruba Obas should desist from bastardizing the history on Yoruba’s origination, which, it is a way of weaken the foundation and create loopholes for the aliens to poke into our affairs.

“Leaders of Yoruba states should come together to work out how they can help each state to maximize its areas of comparative advantage. Implement land use act, control the influx of outsiders, who have turned Yorubaland to residential region, perhaps due to insecurity they constantly experienced in their region, they keep acquiring every available land to build estates, mansions and institution. The idea is to kill agriculture in Yorubaland.

“Should Yoruba put his house together, the race will become a threat for many nations in world considering the quality of his natural and human resources, agricultural prowess, rich culture. Yoruba is the ionic bond binding together all regions in Nigeria, keeping Nigeria together as a nation. As a decider of the continued existence of the Nigeria, any attempt by the yoruba’s to opt out of the marriage

“Do not allow yourselves to be manipulated into raising against ourselves . Do not allow yourselves to be manipulated by dubious and selfish politicians,” he said.

Nigeria Needs Factories The Size Of Ibadan NOT Churches – DaddyFreeze Replies Pastor Adeboye

church

OAP, DaddyFreeze has countered 77-year-old General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, who during the week, said one of the things he must do before he dies is to build a church as big as Ibadan city in Oyo state.

Preaching on the third day of the Holy Ghost Congress 2019 holding at the Redemption Campground, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Pastor Adeboye said he has a plan of building a church as big as Ibadan. According to him, no one should believe he is dead until that is done. 

Freeze has now countered his dream. In a post shared on his IG page this evening, Freeze said what Nigeria needs more of now are factories and not more church edifice as she already has enough of that. Read his post and share your thoughts.

GOD DOES NOT LIVE IN HOUSES BUILT BY HUMAN HANDS!!!

This in my opinion, is a selfish ambition (scripturally selfish ambitions are in the same category as witchcraft and sexual orgies), that does nothing for Christians, rather I see it as a quest to turn believers into beasts of burden!

? Galatians 5:20 ?
New International Version
idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions

The more I think about it, the angrier I get. Adeboye wants to use 3,080 square kilometers to build a church or a bigger business center, which one???
???

In this poverty riddled land, with more people in extreme poverty than China and India combined (according to worldpoverty.io), couldn’t he at least have been a little more creative????

We need factories the size of Ibadan NOT churches, we have way too many churches already.
With 10 churches on each street, we have so much religion, so much hunger and underdevelopment yet so little love.?

WE ARE THE CHURCH, NOT A BUILDING, the church is not the ‘house of God’, it’s just a building and God does not live in temples built with human hands.

? Acts 7:48 ?
New Living Translation
However, the Most High doesn’t live in temples made by human hands. As the prophet says,

? Acts 17:24 ?
New Living Translation
“He is the God who made the world and everything in it. Since he is Lord of heaven and earth, he doesn’t live in man-made temples,

? 2 Corinthians 5:1 ?
New International Version
For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.

? Hebrews 9:11 ?
New Living Translation
So Christ has now become the High Priest over all the good things that have come. He has entered that greater, more perfect Tabernacle in heaven, which was not made by human hands and is not part of this created world.

Impeachment: Trump Has High Chance In Office – US Senate Leadership

Published

on

By

impeachment

The US Senate leadership has stated that US president won’t be removed from office, as a result of ‘the weak case’ presented by the Democrat controlled US House Of Representatives.

The House Judiciary committee led by Democrat Jerry Nadler voted along party lines on Friday to submit two articles of impeachment against Trump and the US leader could be impeached as early as Wednesday next week.

Trump’s impeachment by the US House is as a result of a July phone call he made with Ukraine’s president Zelensky asking for investigation of his political rival Joe Biden in return for military aid.

The House could impeach Trump next week but the Senate led by Republican Mitch McConnell says the Democrats have no case and he will be working with the White House lawyers and the president to ensure a quick and smooth trial in the senate.

“The case is so darn weak coming over from the House. We all know how it’s going to end,” Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell said on Fox News program “Hannity.” on Saturday.

“There is no chance the president is going to be removed from office.”

McConnell also said he hoped that none of the members of his caucus would vote to remove the president from office, adding “it wouldn’t surprise me if we got one or two Democrats” to vote to acquit Trump .

He explained that the articles of impeachment would be different from ordinary legislation that makes its way from the House, in that: “We have no choice but to take it up. But we’ll be working through this process hopefully in a fairly short period of time, in total coordination with the White House counsel’s office and the people who are representing the president, in the way all of the Senate.”

Mitch declined to reveal what a Senate trial might look like or whether Republicans would call witnesses such as former Vice President Joe Biden, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., or the intelligence community whistleblower, whose complaint about Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky sparked the impeachment inquiry.

“I’m going to take my cues from the president’s lawyers,” said McConnell.

“My hope is that it will be a shorter process rather than a long, lengthy process.”
