September 30, 2021


Primate Elijah Ayodele, the Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church recently released a prophecy about Buhari and the country ahead of Independence as Nigeria clocks 61 years.
According to him, God said top government officials will be kidnapped. The Taliban will reinforce and attack before Buhari administration elapses and the North and Abuja will be at the crest of it.
Primate Elijah Ayodele also added that corrupt officials will be exposed, bandits and terrorist leaders will be captured.

In his words, “Our 61st independence anniversary has no meaning, there is no development, the government has done well but the poor are not enjoying it. There is too much death, bloodbath, and more is still coming. What the Lord said to me that we should expect in this new independence year is that the level of corruption in this government will be exposed and some bandits leaders, ISIS, ISWAP Leaders will be captured’.

“In this New Year, some governors will regret being governors because of issues they will be facing especially in the north. There will be so many things exposed and several serious accusations.

“Let us also be prayerful, I see bandits kidnapping people in the top hierarchy. There are places they want to attack in the north and Abuja. Let the government pray on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of October to save Nigeria from all unnecessary threats because there is going to be a new terrorist group with sophisticated weapons

“We have to pray more for our security issues because the Taliban will reinforce in this New Year and there will be a major attack before the end of this government.”

The prophet spoke about the economy of the country... “Nigeria will still battle with the economy as I see political assassination that will involve a prominent politician.

“EFCC chairman will be incapacitated because of his techniques, he will get a lot of information but they will use him for political reasons so he must be careful,”

He also spoke on the security turnout... “There will be a crisis in customs, some officers will be queried of some illegal operations.

“Let us pray against the death of any commissioner of police.

“Nigeria will still battle with the economy as I see political assassination that will involve a prominent politician.

Legendary French Fashion Designer, Pierre Cardin Dies At 98

Pierre Cardin

French fashion designer Pierre Cardin, hailed for his visionary creations but also for bringing stylish clothes to the masses, died Tuesday aged 98, his family told AFP.

Cardin, who was born to a low-income family in northern Italy but became a France-based fashion superstar, died in a hospital in Neuilly in the west of Paris, his family said.

“It is a day of great sadness for all our family. Pierre Cardin is no more,” the statement said.

It said after a lifetime spanning a century he had left France and the world a “great unique artistic heritage” and not only in fashion.

Born into poverty in 1922 near Venice in northern Italy, his family emigrated to France when he was a small child.

“Italian by birth, Pierre Cardin never forgot his origins while bringing unconditional love to France,” said his family.

– From apprentice to global empire –

He grew up in the French industrial town of Saint Etienne and was apprenticed to a tailor in Vichy at the age of 17, already specialising in women’s suits.

Moving to Paris, he designed the mesmerising sets and costumes for the film “Beauty and the Beast” with poet, artist and director Jean Cocteau in 1947.

After a stint with Christian Dior, he had already set up his own fashion label in 1950.

He quickly established a name as an innovator, creating the now legendary bubble dress in 1954.

He also broke new ground commercially, ruffling feathers in the fashion establishment for producing a ready-to-wear collection for the Paris department store Printemps.

His 1964 “Space Age” collection remains a landmark in fashion history with its cut-out dresses, knitted catsuits, tight leather pants, close-fitting helmets and batwing jumpers.

His global empire had a strong presence in Japan and also signed production deals with the Cold War-era Soviet Union in 1978. He also became the first French designer in 1979 to cement links with China.

He was also the first designer to hold a fashion show in Red Square in Moscow in 1991, drawing a crowd of 200,000.

His family praised how he had plunged “early on into the flow of globalisation”.

But the much-used and franchised Cardin brand later showed signs of wear and, in 2011, he put his fashion label up for sale although it failed to sell.

“We are all proud of his tenacious ambition and the daring he has shown throughout his life,” his family said.

Bizarre!! Mother Snatches Daughter's Husband Because She Cheated On Him

A bizarre love triangle has rocked a Russian family after a 75-year-old woman allegedly stole her daughter's man after she cheated on him.

The mother and daughter are said to be embroiled in a bitter fight over the same man after he left the younger woman for the septuagenarian.

The grandmother, Galina Zhukovskaya is from the St Petersburg city in the western Russian region of Leningrad Oblast. She married her daughter's ex-husband back in 2010 after developing a friendship with him when it emerged that her daughter had cheated on him, forcing him to leave his family.

When he left the marital home, the granny offered her daughter's ex-husband a place to stay and that resulted in a love match that ended in marriage.

Now, the granny has come out to complain that her daughter, Elena Podgornaya, 56, is trying to steal her ex-husband, Vyacheslav Zhukovsky, 52, back from her.

She told local media that her daughter was unlucky in love as she has been facing challenges to get a another man since she was dumped. The septuagenarian also alleged that her daughter is jealous of her success with her ex-husband and is trying to lure him back because "she is bored".

Speaking with Russian newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda, she claimed the daughter went as far as sending her granddaughter to try and seduce her husband.

She claimed to the paper: "She wants us to separate.

"She often sends her 30-year-old daughter, born from another man, to get intimate with him."

Zhukovkaya continued: "My daughter is probably jealous that mum is not alone. I have someone to talk to and she doesn't. But he won't get back to her. She cheated on him too much."

See The Latest Stylish Facemask Worn By Cross River Governor And Produced By State-owned Factory

Governor Ben Ayade

Cross River State Governor, Prof. Ben Ayade sure knows how to get the media space engaged with his stylish facemask and dress sense.

He is known for his beautiful combination of the African Ankara materials that matches his wears.

In the wake of the outbreak of the coronavirus, the governor instructed the Cross River State Garment factory to immediately commence production of Facemask and other personal protective equipments (PPEs). He, the Governor has since then, literally become the 'Model' of Facemask in Nigeria.

Today, he posted the latest from the factory which got people talking on social media.

See photo:

The governor had last month, instructed the factory to produce more facemask that would be given to pupils and students of primary and secondary schools respectively, upon resumption of academic activities.

He said: "I think that the federal government will be excited to encourage the resumption of schools because obviously the coronavirus has come to stay with us and the reality is that countries that have attempted to resume schools have had to contend with the increasing prevalence of the virus but obviously how long can we wait as a country?”

“So perhaps, we have to adopt a new lifestyle that will integrate coronavirus as part of our lifestyle.

“And so for Cross River state, we have a strong commitment that our children cannot continue to stay at home. The more they stay, the more the moral decadence, the more indiscipline, the more they become lazy to get back to school and getting started, because for every stage in life there is a time where you have to be in class and once the children miss that delicate phase, it becomes very difficult".

A Must Read For Men!! How To Keep A Lady BY FEMI FANI-KAYODE

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode bares his mind on how to keep a lady as he shares beautiful pictures of his wife.


 HOW TO KEEP A LADY  by Femi Fani-Kayode

Ladies are like race horses: they must be mastered, tamed, trained, exercised and regularly serviced. They are like race cars: their engine must be revived at least twice a day.

They are like precious jewels and rare gems: they must be cherished, shielded, guarded, protected and defended.

They are like little children: they must be given attention, pampered, encouraged, loved, made to feel on top of the world and given everything that they need and want.

They are like magnificent works of art: they must be appreciated and valued.

If you want to keep a lady, live for her alone, worship the ground she walks on, treat her like a Queen, tolerate and accept her idiosyncrasies, weaknesses and excesses and love her for who and what she is, warts and all!

And one more thing: once in a while write her a romantic poem, serve her breakfast in bed, give her flowers, buy her the most expensive and exotic perfumes, take her shopping and in the evening cook a candle-lit dinner for her.

Do all this and she will stand with you through thick and thin.

That's my secret and that's the key!

Pastor Omokri who is noted for his motivational posts on social media is a hard-line critic of President Muhammadu Buhari.

He wrote:

"The biggest error a person can make is marrying someone they have never provoked.

"Know how they act when angry before saying I do, lest you marry a wife beater, or husband killer. It was in them, but love blinded you, now regret is unblinding you ".

The Life And Times Of Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke

Late Evang. Reinhard Bonnke

Reinhard Bonnke (April 19, 1940 – December 7, 2019) was a German Pentecostal [1] evangelist , principally known for his gospel missions throughout Africa. Bonnke had been an evangelist and missionary in Africa since 1967. Bonnke oversaw 75 million recorded conversions to Christianity.

Early life

Reinhard Bonnke was born on 19 April 1940 in
Königsberg, East Prussia , Germany, he son of an army logistics officer. With his mother and siblings, he was taken to Denmark during the
evacuation of East Prussia , and spent some years in a displaced persons centre. He was
born again at the age of nine after his mother spoke with him about a sin that he had committed. He left for missionary work Africa at the age of 10 and sayed that he had the experience of Baptism in the Holy Spirit . After war service, his father had become a pastor.

Bonnke studied at The Bible College of Wales in
Swansea , where he was inspired by the director
Samuel Rees Howells. In one meeting after Howells spoke of answered prayer, Bonnke prayed, "Lord, I also want to be a man of faith. I want to see your way of providing for needs."
Passing through London, he had a chance meeting with the famous preacher George Jeffreys, who encouraged the young German student. After graduation, he pastored in Germany for seven years. He began his ministry in Africa , with which he was principally identified, preaching in Lesotho in 1967. He subsequently held evangelical meetings across the continent.


Reinhard Bonnke died on December 7, 2019. [9] He passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family. He died on the early morning of December 7

African mission

Early on, Bonnke encountered poor results from his evangelistic efforts and felt frustrated at the pace of his ministry. Bonnke claims to have had a recurring dream featuring a picture of the map of Africa being spread with red and heard the voice of God crying "Africa Shall Be Saved". This led him to adopt large-scale evangelism, rather than the traditional small scale missionary approach. He rented a stadium in
Gaborone, and preached with little cooperation from local churches. Beginning with only 100 people, the stadium meetings grew.
In 1974, Bonnke founded the mission organisation 'Christ For All Nations' (abbreviated CfaN). Originally based in Johannesburg , South Africa , the headquarters were relocated to Frankfurt , Germany in 1986. This was done primarily to distance the organisation from South Africa's
apartheid policy at the time. Today CfaN has 9 offices across 5 continents.

Bonnke began his ministry holding tent meetings that accommodated large crowds. According to an account published by the
Christian Broadcasting Network , in 1984 he commissioned the construction of what was claimed to be the world’s largest mobile structure – a tent capable of seating 34,000; this was destroyed in a wind storm just before a major meeting and therefore the team decided to hold the event in the open air instead.

According to this account, the event was subsequently attended by over 100,000 people which is far greater than the 34,000 seating capacity the tents could contain.

Bonnke announced his 'farewell gospel crusade' to be held in Lagos, Nigeria in November 2017. Lagos is also the location of a gospel crusade held in 2000 which, according to CfaN, is the organisation's largest to-date, drawing an attendance of 6 million people. In 2019 Reinhard Bonnke will headline the G12 Africa Conference in Pretoria, South Africa.


In 1991, during Bonnke's visit to Kano in Nigeria, there were riots in the city as Muslims protested over remarks he had reportedly made about Islam in the city of Kaduna on his way to Kano.  A rumor was spread that Bonnke was planning to “lead an invasion” into Kano. Muslim youths gathered at the Kofar Mata Eide-ground where they were addressed by several clerics who claimed that Bonnke was going to blaspheme Islam. About 8,000 youths gathered at the Emir's palace and after noon prayers the riots ensued, during which many Christians sustained various injuries and several churches were burned. After nine years he returned to Nigeria to preach.

Personal life

After graduating from the Bible College of Wales and returning to Germany, Bonnke led a series of meetings in Rendsburg. He began receiving speaking invitations from all around Germany and the rest of the world. Bonnke met Anni Suelze at a gospel music festival, and admired the grace with which she recovered from a wrongly pitched music performance at the expense of losing the competition. He offered to preach at the church she attended one Sunday and fell in love with her. They married in 1964 and have three children and eight grandchildren.
