Vice President Osinbajo Talks Tough on Ending Religious Conflicts in Nigeria

 The Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has described the various religious conflicts and killings in the country, as the mega agenda of the devil to make the preaching of the gospel of Christ an impossible mission in Nigeria.

The Vice President, who made the assertion at the official commissioning  of the Deeper Life Bible Church Ultra Modern Auditorium in Gbagada, Lagos, said he has got the president's mandate to get to the root of such crises in the country.

 His words:"There are resistance to the building of churches, in fact there are specific cases/ states, where embargo has been placed on church building, and the president has mandated me that I take up such cases".

He admonished  the church to rise to her responsibility of evangelising the world, as it is the plan of the devil to ensure that this mission is defeated.

He said :"We are in the end time, and indeed the time of His return is closer than when we first believe.The immediate implication of this is that there must be urgency in the fulfilment of the great commission. As we are all enjoined to obey the injunction.

"As we endeavour to fulfil the great commission, we must accept that there are resistance and the devil is more desperate and defiant as the end draws nearer".

 Recalling the incident that led to the gruesome murder of a Catholic Priest by armed killers during a burial mass in Benue State recently, he pledged the commitment of all security leaders to fish out the evil men involved in the wicked act. 

"All the security leaders will continue to work relentlessly to bring to book the perpatrators of this evil act, and to bring a permanent end to all of the killings that are going on in the country, in the name of herdsmen, Boko Haram, or any other group".

The Vice President did not fail to seek for the prayers and support of the church, saying governance is a spiritual warfare.Reading from the Holy Scriptures the account of Queen Esther in Shushan, he said believers in government are referred to as Esther. And as Esther asked for prayers to be offered on her behalf, he beseeched the brethren to always pray for all Christians in government.
"This I say to the church, that the church prays for those in government, that the church upholds the hands of those in government, not by blaming them, but supporting them in the place of prayer, because governance is spiritual warfare. If anyone does not know that, I know that governance is a spiritual warfare.I ask that you pray for every one of us who is in the position of authority", he pleaded.

Declaring the 30,000 capacity ultra modern auditorium opened,  he congratulated Pastor W.F Kumuyi on the successful completion of the church, urging him to keep up with the preaching of holiness and righteousness he has been known for.

The General Superintendent of the Deeper Life appreciated all members of the church for their sacrificial and generous contribution towards the building of the new church auditorium.He also urged other churches to follow the good example of Deeper Life by incorporating Corporate Social Responsiblity into their evangelisation of their communities.

The high point of the event was the unveiling of the new logo of the church, which was heralded by the super performance of the Youth Choir.

Deeper Life International Headquarters to Be Commissioned on April 24

Contrary to early speculations about the official commissioning of the Deeper Life Christian Ministry’s International Headquarters, located on  2- 10, Ayodele Okeowo, Gbagada, Lagos, the Church has announced the new date for the ceremonial opening of the 45,000 capacity wonder cathedral.

Topsyoba.com gathers via the Church’s Monday Bible Study Broadcast on 9 April, that the new date for the official commissioning of the ultra modern auditorium is fixed for 24 April, 2018, as against the February 2014 and 2017 watch night service previously announced, by some media reports.

The unique church auditorium will be commissioned by 11:00am, under the distinguished chairmanship of his Excellency, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, with other side attractions like special musical cantata by the Deeper Life Choir, and other dignitaries in attendance. However, attendance would be strictly by invitation.

The interesting thing about the commissioning is that everyone can be viewing the ceremony from anywhere they are through the following platforms:
  • LTM Transmission
  • Webcast.dclm.org
  • YouTube.com/dclmhq
  • twitter.com/dclmhq
  • facebook.com/dclmhq
According to an inside source, the construction of the cathedral commenced about 13 years ago, and the structure was later expanded along the line to accommodate an underground park, which  would take  about 160 cars.

 Built like a stadium, our source revealed that the construction of the Deeper Life Christian Ministry International Headquarters costs nothing less than over N4 billion, with every kobo of it generated from the pockets of church members in Nigeria with generous contributions from Deeper Life churches abroad.

Topsyoba.com reports that the commissioning of the Deeper Life International Headquarters is coming barely two months, after the Lagos State Governor Ambode, commissioned multiple projects executed by the Church in the Gbagada area of Lagos.

Projects commissioned by the Governor included a link bridge on Oduwaiye Street, Gbagada, traffic lights on a number of streets and a 600 capacity multilevel car park, all built from the contributions of members of the church across the country.

The execution of these projects beat the Governor’s imagination so much, that he has urged all
 other religious groups and private sector organizations in the state, to follow the Deeper Life example and  provide similar support to the government, adding that a lot will be achieved and in a very short time in improving the quality of infrastructure in the state.

...And She Caught The Culprit

Ahead of the International Women's Day, which is Thursday 8 March, I'm nominating this Super-Brave-BRT-Lady Pilot for Promotion.

For anyone who might have seen this blue BRT along Ikeja GRA this morning, here is the story behind it.
The BRT, driven by a Lady driver was on its way  from Agric, Ikorodu to Maryland. On getting to the bypass at Maryland which leads to her last bus stop, the driver slowed down due to a little traffic.As the traffic started moving, she moved the bus forward and all of a sudden, a Pickup Van just squeezed itself via the right side of the bus and shattered the side mirror of the BRT.

While passengers keenly watched out for the man driving the van to gently park to resolve the issue, the guy demonstrated the nature of most Naija Danfo drivers, by navigating the next available bypass to evade paying for the damage.

The Super-Courageous-Lady Pilot on the other hand, never gave it a second thought as she went all out after this wicked pickup driver, knowing full well that the cost of the damage will be deducted from her salary, if she could not produce the person responsible.

As the drama continues, none of the passengers would have taught that we'll get to the Ikeja Police College before we could catch this criminal of a guy. Imagine the courage and boldness of this Lady, driving such a long bus, in chase of a guilty male runaway driver?

From Maryland to GRA, to other streets around the GRA axis, the guy continued in his escape mission, and the lady kept on after him, in fact, at one point,  some guys in the bus were telling the driver: " Eleyi ti lojo, fisile".While some kept nudging her to go ahead saying:"Sebi GRA lowo, kosibi tofelo, amarimu".

Eventually, on approaching the Police College Ikeja, there was a little hitch, and the lady started blaring the horn of the bus for vehicles to block the pickup, and there and then, the Super-BRT -Lady driver caught the culprit and the Police in front of the College arrested him, and drove both vehicles into their compound to fine the guy.

What a feat for a woman driver?
Such an uncommon courage, bravery, boldness deposited in a woman!

The takeaway from this early morning drama is that women should stand up for the rights, through proper and polite means.
Enough of gender imbalance in our society, it's high time we embraced gender equality.

Although women shouldn't be competing with men,but when the situation warrants women to act,  they are to gently swing into action, as its usually said, #WhatAManCanDoAWomanCanDoBetter.

Ladies and gentlemen, please let's share this post until this lady gets her next promotion.
