Queen Elizabeth, Buhari, 20 Govs To Attend Ooni’s Coronation

Her Majesty the Queen of England, Elizabeth Alexandra; President Muhammadu Buhari; Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo (SAN); and governors from at least 20 states, ministers and other dignitaries are expected to attend the coronation of the new Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II.

The Chairman, Media Committee of the coronation, Mr. Biyi Odunlade, said this at a press conference that started a series of activities lined up for the coronation scheduled to hold on December 7.

Odunlade, however, explained that the queen might be represented at the ceremony. He added that guests from many nations of the world had been invited for the ceremony.

The Ooni also said he was ready to fast-track the development of Ife with a series of policies, which he said, would make the Yoruba people proud anywhere they found themselves.

The monarch, who was represented at the press conference by his elder brother, Prince Adegboyega Ogunwusi, said he would do everything possible to address the problem of youth unemployment in the town.

Ogunwusi, who donated 50 transformers to some communities in Ife before he emerged as the new Ooni, said he would donate additional 50 transformers within the next 30 days to boost electricity supply in the ancient town.

He noted that this gesture would make small scale businesses in the town to thrive because power problem would have been reduced.

He said, "Let me acquaint you with what I have done in less than 70 days. I have given out over 20 electricity transformers worth about N250m.

"I donated 50 transformers when I was a prince. I will buy another 50 transformers within the next 30 days to further enhance electricity distribution. With this, small scale businesses of welders, tailors and others will naturally witness improvement.

"Providentially, I know the core investor and the Chairman, Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company, Mr. Tunde Ayeni, personally and very well. I have engaged him and his team to make this a reality and work has commenced in earnest. We will witness this transformation by the very special grace of God."

"To revamp the stadium, I have already opened discussion with the Osun State Government on this. I will set up a football academy and we will have 16 clubs in Ife."

The new monarch also promised to establish a football academy.

While the press conference was going on, the new Ooni and other guests were at an inter-religious service held at Enuwa Square.

One of the religious leaders, who spoke at the service, Apostle Joshua Fagbule, urged the people of Ife to rally round Ogunwusi in order for him to bring about meaningful development to the town.

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the submission of the country's Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC) to address climate change to United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Nigeria's INDC was approved by the President on November 26 and submitted to the UNFCCC on November 28, ahead of Monday's opening in Paris of the United Nations Climate Change conference, widely known as COP 21.

The Federal Government's policy to address climate change, as espoused in the country's INDC, commits to 20 per cent unconditional and 45 per cent conditional Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) emission reduction post 2020.

The action plan announced by the Federal Government represents a fair and meaningful contribution to address climate change and equally reaffirms President Buhari's commitment to an economic transformation which places inclusive, green growth as key priority for this administration.

President Buhari is fully aware of the acute threat that climate change poses to Nigeria's development through flooding, desertification and insecurity, and many of these accrue from weather-related natural disasters.

In Paris, the issue of Lake Chad's current depletion, which has become a cause of international concern, will be major focus of a meeting of the Lake Chad Basin Summit of Heads of State and Government, which President Buhari will attend with Nigeria's delegation on Tuesday, December 1.

The Lake Chad is currently less than 10 per cent of its original size and little of the remaining waters is in Nigeria. Of an estimated 20 million people that lived on the Lake Chad Basin as at 2013, about 11.7 million were in the North Eastern region of Nigeria.

Also during the conference in Paris, President Buhari is scheduled to participate in the launching of International Solar Alliance by the Indian Prime Minister and the French President, where he will seek international partnerships to deliver Nigeria's climate change response.

"On behalf of the entire football family, I would like to thank Enyimba for helping to spread the positive message of football and I will like the team to give Nigeria good representation on the continent."

In his reaction, Chairman of the People's Elephant, Felix Anyansi Agwu thanked Fifa for the recognition and pledged Enyimba's commitment towards spreading football's message of work ethic and fair play.

The club will represent Nigeria in next year's CAF Champions League, which they've twice won, in 2003 and 2004.

Jonathan Was Not Attacked In Bayelsa(Read What Really Happened)

The Bayelsa State Police Command on Monday debunked reports that former President Goodluck Jonathan was attacked in the state.

The state's Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr. Butswat Asinim, who spoke to The Nation, said persons peddling the rumour were mischievous.

Asinim said a group of hungry youths mistook a convoy of the former President for one of the governorship candidates in the state.

The PPRO, an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), said the youths traditionally followed the convoy, perhaps, for alms, only to discover it belonged to Jonathan.

He said on realising it was Jonathan's convoy, the youths who had followed him up to his house in Yenagoa, pulled back and took to their heels, adding that security operatives pursued and arrested some of them.

He said: "There was no attack on the former President. The youths mistook his convoy for a governorship candidate engaging in campaigns.

"But when they discovered on getting to the entrance of his house in Yenagoa that it was that of the President, they ran away. Some of them were arrested. They did not haul stones at the President's convoy. They did not attack the convoy and no weapon was found on them.

The press will set fire to this country and watch it burn to ashes. We thank God nothing of such happened even though there are many who wished it happened just to score cheap political points.


“ Bola Tinubu Made Buhari President” – Pastor Tunde Bakare Opens Up

See excerpts from Pastor Tunde Bakare's recent
chat with The News
When we look at the campaign of PMB, we saw
Asiwaju Tinubu as his backbone, he played a leading
role in the emergence of Buhari as President.
Recently in the church, I heard I wasn't there, that
you attacked Jonathan and Tinubu and when I look
at your comment on Tinubu, I see that you always
attack him, I want to ask, why?
Well, you told me you were not there, hearsay
evidence are not feasible in court. Since you were
not there, I would have asked you to go listen to the
tape and come back because sometimes what looks
like an attack is truth. Why would I attack Asiwaju?
Talking of politics, he has paid his dues. People were
not there when I preached the message and that
really celebrated Tinubu. That he single handedly
fought the PDP to a standstill in the southwest. I
sent him the tape.
Do you understand me? Again this is our society,
the moment you focus on issues, they reduce it to
personalities. May I ask you the question maybe
that would throw light on areas that you call
criticisms by those who do not know the
difference between critique and a negative
comment. Shall I pray for you that your children
will not be greater than you? Will you say amen to
that. So if God has used you to facilitate the
emergence of someone who now performs better
than you, shouldn't you be happy.
My mother is a happy woman, she didn't go to
school but she sent me. And today she is at
peace with herself that she has worked hard and
worked well and I give her the honour. You may
never meet my mother but you have met the letter
she has written to the world. It not a letter written
with ink and pen. Do you understand me. I don't
have any problem with Asiwaju. On 3rd of
November 2014 I was in Asiwaju's house and I
said to him 'Asiwaju, there are only four things
left that I am pursuing in this world, and none of
them is in your hands, my mother is 106, her
prayer is that I should survive her and give her a
befitting burial. Asiwaju, can you guarantee my
being alive to do that?' he said he can't. No 2:
'Asiwaju, I want to stay in health while waiting to
give my mother a befitting burial, can any human
being guarantee that?' Nobody. I have five
children by the grace of God, I want them to be
greater than I am, and I don't want them to go
before me, 'can you guarantee that?'
And finally I said I want to make heaven at the
end, and to hear, 'good and faithful servant, enter
into the joy of the Lord your God' can you
guarantee that? he can't. So why the basis of
competition, what I am looking for is not in your
hand. Am not looking for power, I am not looking
for position, I am not looking for appointment.
Can't you understand that? I have never done
contract in my life. So there is no basis for
attacking Asiwaju except in the figment of the
imagination of some people. But something
touched me, and when matters are brought to me,
I look at some of them, I take them all, sometimes
I don't bother myself because you must not fight
every battle and lose the world.

TB Joshua speaks after failing to appear in court(pic)

The General Overseer of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet TB Joshua and 2 contractors who are facing trial for criminal negligence over a church building collapse that killed 116 worshippers in September 2014 failed to appear in court today, prompting the judge to adjourn the case. This case is following a coroner's ruling in July 2015 that blamed Synagogue and 2 engineers for the 12th September 2014 tragedy.

At the hearing today, Justice Lawal Akapo said,"It appears the defendants are not mindful that this is a criminal proceeding. This is a criminal trial and a sensitive matter like this one should be given accelerated hearing". Akapo has directed the defence team to provide the court with the engineers' addresses within 72 hours and he has adjourned the case until December 11. Meanwhile TB Joshua earlier today took to Twitter saying,""Those who BLESS GOD in their trials will be BLESSED BY GOD through their trials."



The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has begun work on a N7.6 billion resort in the ancient town.

The Ife Grand Resort & Leisure is sited near the Ile-Ife toll gate on the Ife-Ibadan Expressway.

The project will be a replica but a far better model of his Inagbe Grand Resort in Lagos, built for N3.5 billion.

A close associate of the monarch said the project, a seven-star hotel, would consist of 300 rooms.

Facilities in the resort will include an artificial lake on which an 8,000-capacity floating bar will stand, spas, a golf course, three swimming pools, a lawn tennis court, an indoor sports hall, 30 horses and quad bikes for pleasure ride.

The resort will also feature a children's play centre, mud brick houses, and a 5,000- guest hall.

Most of the materials to be used will be sourced from Ile-Ife and processed by the monarch's factory.

Operating under the corporate name Gran Imperio Limited, Ogunwusi's company specialises in developing estates and resorts.

The source added that the sites for other resorts had been acquired in Abuja, Port-Harcourt and Maiduguri.

The monarch, in his speech after his selection, said he would embark on activities to develop Ile-Ife.

Oba Ogunwusi is to be inaugurated as the 51st Ooni on December 7.

Photos: Pope Francis visits mosque in Central African Republic

Pope Francis this morning visited a mosque at the Central African Republic, the last country he will be visiting in Africa. Pope Francis met with Muslim leaders and Muslim faithfuls at the central Koudoukou mosque in the PK5 district, the last Muslim enclave in Bangui. He rode his motorcade with some Muslim leaders as he made his way to the mosque.

"Christians and Muslims are brothers and sisters. Together, we must say no to hatred, to revenge and to violence, particularly that violence which is perpetrated in the name of a religion or of God himself," he said to his mostly-Muslim audience who were sitting on the floor, listening quietly.
