Popular man of God and founder/spiritual head at INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Lagos, Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele, has been honoured with an Honorary Citizenship of South Carolina.

Primate Ayodele, whose spiritual and humanitarian activities have continued to change lives across Nigeria and abroad, we learned, received the honour at a private ceremony following one of his pastoral campaigns recently.

The award of citizenship, according to a statement from the South Carolina authorities obtained by this medium, is a reward given based solely on Ayodele’s humanitarian services rendered via his divine mission.
Meanwhile, on Friday, June 8th, 2018, the foremost prophet of God hosted his ministry’s latest empowerment conference where 10,000 less privileged members of the public and church workers were empowered in various aspects.
It was a youth-focused revival/vigil for rehabilitation, empowerment, prayers, music ministration, lectures, counseling, healing and deliverance for the youths from various part of the country.
The focus of the all-night crusade-cum-empowerment programme tagged ‘Nigerian Youth, Our Future’, was the group of young men and ladies considered to be of little or no value to the society. They are mainly chronic smokers, drug addicts, drunks and others challenged in various forms, including young women in prostitution of which more than 30 have benefitted in the past.
According to Primate Ayodele, “this kind of programme is a further manifestation and demonstration of our concern and determination to continue impacting and rehabilitating the youths that are into drugs and hard substances abuse.”
At the programme which was organized by the INRI Youth Ministry in collaboration with the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), lives were restored as many met with their salvation at the crusade venue in Ilasamaja, Lagos. Characteristics of the servant of God, Primate Ayodele, most of the reformed persons were also empowered in their respective area of skills in order to be socially and financially stable while some were awarded scholarships to different levels of academic knowledge.
Lectures and sermons were given by a list of dignitaries and Ministers of God on such subjects as unsettled homes,
drugs & substances abuse, cultism, single parenting among various other social vices and challenges.
There were testimonies as the revival progressed, of some youth who after many years finally were able to sit for WAEC, JAMB and other promotional examinations. Some at the venue received micro-credit support for small scale businesses, while some benefitted from the skills acquisition programme in artisanship. There were also those that had slept under bridges and makeshift shelters who were blessed with decent accommodations.
Music ministration was offered by star Gospel singer, Evangelist Bunmi Akinnanu Adeoye a.k.a Omije Oju Mi; Dele Sax and INRI Music Ministry.
In the words of the servant of God, “it is my resolve through the grace of God that the glory of the Nigerian youth must shine under whatever socio-economic chalkenges and other unfavourable conditions they may find themselves.”

10-year old girl launches two books

Published

on

L-R: Toni Kan, guest speaker; Munachi Mbonu, author of the books title “ Concealed and The Child of Destiny”, her mother Ify Mbonu, and Nicolas Okoye, president/CEO, Anabel Group, during the books presentation in Lagos.

 

It was a gathering of A lists authors, book aficionados, and captains of industries at the Terra Kulture, Victoria Island, Lagos to launch two books written by 10-year old Munachi Mbonu.

The books, Concealed and Chidubem: A child of destiny  were products of leisurely exercises by the Year Six pupil of Grande Oakbridge Montessori School, Osapa London, Lekki, which she wrote to entertain her cousins until her mother, Ifeoma, urged her to seek a wider audience.

Munachi said Concealed, centered on a group of young friends in school learning what is valuable and love, was inspired by TV drama series, Friends; while Chidubem, which features a boy adapting to city life after relocating from the village, was influenced by her interactions with her cousins who had similar experience.

“When the house is noisy, my Mummy tells us to go to our rooms and read and do book reviews. She doesn’t like us watching the TV for long periods. I started writing stories and giving them to my cousin’s to read.

“The first book was from TV drama shows; the second book was inspired by my cousins who moved from the village to Lagos. They did not like some things we liked here but were willing to learn new things and adapt,” she said.

Munachi’s Mum said the girl started writing at seven.

“She’s been writing from seven. I got her first laptop at five.  So she would sketch some things and write about them. At age seven, she started writing.  During the holidays I buy a lot of books and tell her to do a book review.  She has written about five or six books.

Ms Mbonu said she thought the books were ripe for publishing because she enjoyed reading them as an adult.

“When I read Chidumbem, it was really funny.  I was laughing.  I told her that older people needed to read her books, not just her cousins.  She was scared at first but I encouraged her.  We met with an editor who saw the manuscript and she was impressed,” said Ms Mbonu.

Advising other parents, Ms Mbonu urged parents to invest in their wards.

“I will advise parents to invest in their children first before investing for their children.  Expose a child to multiple activities and through that you know what the child likes,” she said.

Guest of honour at the launch, Tony Kan, popular writer and poet, who started writing at 11, urged Munachi’s parents to support her.

He shared how he ended up studying English at the University of Jos after three failures to get in for Medicine.  He also said his love for writing had taken him all over the world.

“I wanted to study Medicine at the University of Jos.  I was admitted for Chemistry, the first time, then Biochemistry, then Microbiology.  My uncle then asked what I wanted to do, and I opted for English.  In the first year, we had a reading list of 48 books.  I had read 47 of them.

I want to say to Mum and Dad, this girl is doing something great; encourage her.  I have traveled all over the world but I have never bought a ticket in my life.  I get invitations from people because of my books,” he said.

Published

When the Lord decides to do something, He reveals it to His Prophets. So, when God speaks through His Prophet, you should listen and take it seriously.

Two months ago, precisely on 29th of April, 2018, servant of God and senior pastor at Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle (Prof.) Johnson Suleiman, prophesied of the tanker explosion that occurred in Lagos on Thursday, 28th of June, 2018.

Revealing the Lord’s message during the Sunday service, the ‘Oracle of God’ told his congregation of a fire incident to happen between Lagos and Ibadan highway. “I see fire on the highway, between Lagos and Ibadan. I see a newspaper talking about 100 people being feared dead in the inferno. I see one vehicle hitting the next and the next hitting the next,” he prophesied and asked that people pray.

What proof do we then need to identify a true God’s Prophet.
