Bro Joshua Iginla gives scholarship, cash to orphan, others in one week

Published

Renowned preacher and Senior Pastor of Champions Royal Assembly, Abuja, Bro Joshua Iginla, is taking his kingdom mandate of supporting the needy to an unimaginable level.

The revered man of God, who is noted for his penchant for showering car and other gifts on the poor as well as touching the lives of the needy, last weekend reached out to people with enough hand-outs to assuage their suffering. One of them was an orphan who came to the church for prayers. Bro. Joshua Iginla located her through prophesy and blessed her with N400, 000 and scholarship throughout her lifetime. The orphan had lost her mum when she was two months old and her dad died of poisoning when she was seven years old. The lady, who is from Benue State, was sent out of her house in Benue which made her relocate to Kano where she put up in a makeshift hut because she could not afford her house rent anymore. The cash gift was for her to get a decent apartment.

During a live electrifying prophetic service in Abuja on Saturday, Bro. Joshua Iginla also raised the hope of one Pastor Adebayo Samuel, a staff of an old generation bank in Nigeria, who was mysteriously laid off. As revealed through prophesy given by Bro. Joshua Iginla, Pastor Samuel had refused to yield to God’s call to His vineyard for a long time before the sack, and the man of God told all he passed through which he confirmed to be true. After praying for him, Bro. Joshua Iginla in his characteristic manner supported Mr. Adebayo with the sum of N300,000 and also repositioned him back into ministry.

At the same service, parents of identical female twins were lucky recipients of Bro. Joshua Iginla’s windfall to the tune of US$1000 to cater for the children who were delivered in the church while service was on.

About seven months ago, during his birthday celebration, the pastor with a large heart had showered over N23 million on over 100 widows who are members of his church to alleviate their suffering. The man of God had said he was devoted to empowerment and charity to the vulnerable particularly the widows, orphans and the less privileged in the society without minding their religion, tribe or sectional inclination.

According to him, his action was inspired “by the spirit and prayers in one of my dreams that averted my involvement in a plane crash which was supposed to come to reality.”

In 2016, Bro Joshua Iginla stunned the Christendom and the whole world in general when he gave out cars, several millions of naira to the aged, widows, orphanages and scholarships to orphans to celebrate his birthday.

Artisans got generators and cash gifts while the widows got deep freezers, rice and cash gifts ranging from N150,000 to N1.5 million. Treasure Orphanage Foundation, Nyanya, Divine Wound Orphanage, Kubwa and Christ Home Foundation, Kuje, got N1.5 million each and rice while some orphans in the homes were awarded scholarships from nursery to university. Bro Joshua Iginla said he had 782 widows and orphans he caters for.

In his words, Bro. Joshua Iginla said: “It doesn’t matter to me if I trek home as I have given even the car that I personally drive. I can only drive one car and live in one house at a time. This understanding is what has taught me that when I die, others will inherit my assets.”

I will contest Lagos governorship election – Jimi Agbaje

Published

on

The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2015 gubernatorial election in Lagos State, Mr. Jimi Agbaje, on Wednesday, September 19, finally announced that he has an ambition to lead the state on the platform of the same party in 2019.

There had been speculations on whether Agbaje, who narrowly missed the chance to govern the state in 2015, would still seek election.

Agbaje reportedly told journalists in Lagos that he would seek election in the state in 2019.

“It is true that initially I did not want to re-contest, but I had so many people urging me to run,” he said.

Agbaje, the 2015 governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos state, on Monday, September 3, urged the party to conduct free, fair and credible convention to avoid rancor ahead of the 2019 elections.

A statement by Fidelis Soriwei, a spokesperson of Seriake Dickson, quoted Agbaje as having stated this when he paid a condolence visit to the state governor, Seriake Dickson, in his Toru Orua country home.

The visit was to condole the governor over the death of his mother, Goldcoast Dickson, who died of lung cancer at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Centre, Houston, Texas, in the United States at the age of 72.

Lagos APC members protest James Faleke’s re-election bid

Published

on

Some members of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ikeja Federal Constituency, Lagos State, on Monday staged a peaceful protest against the re-election bid of Rep. James Faleke.

Faleke, member representing Ikeja Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives is positioning himself for re-election in 2019 elections. He had in 2016 gone to contest the deputy governorship seat in Kogi, his state of origin.

The protesters, who chanted different solidarity songs against Faleke, a two-term member of the House of Representatives, said that he had not represented the constituency well.

They carried placards with inscriptions such as “Faleke, go back to Kogi, Ikeja say no to you”, “90 Shops in Kogi, Go back to your Kogi”.

Others read: “16 years of representing Ikeja with no constituency benefit”, “Dear Tinubu, the People of Ikeja, Ojodu, and Onigbongbo say no to Faleke” among others.

One of the leaders of the protesters, Solomon Johnson, said that there were so many capable and vibrant youths, men and women that could represent the constituency.

Johnson, a leader in Ikeja APC said that the protest was to tell the leadership of the party that the residents would not support the re-election of Faleke to the House of Representatives.

“He has been in power in the last 18 years and we feel he has done enough,” Johnson said.

According to him, since the lawmaker has gone to contest Kogi Deputy Governorship Election in 2016, the legislative seat should be given to another individual in the person of Mrs Toke Benson.

He urged Faleke to concentrate on strengthening APC in Kogi rather than seek re-election by transferring his voter register back to Lagos.

“It will be a slap on the people of Ikeja Federal Constituency if Faleke is forced on residents, we have able youths that can represent the constituency and we have found Mrs Toke Benson.

“Since the party is interested in promoting women participation, Toke Benson is qualified, she is a lawyer and well known. Enough of impunity. Give us Toke Benson and we will deliver Ikeja for APC,” Johnson said.

Another leader of the protesters, Hope James said, “The entire people of Ikeja want a change. The attention of Faleke has been in Kogi. Our people have not been benefiting from that office.”

James, one of the APC stalwarts from Onigbongbo Local Council Development Area, alleged that the lawmaker had not been representing the constituency well.
