The appointment of a substantive Vice Chancellor for University of Benin, UNIBEN is presently causing ripples at the institution as some concerned stakeholders have accused the management of allegedly working to impose an unpopular candidate on the school.

THE WITNESS reliably gathered that a Professor of Home Economics/Nutritional Education, Mrs. Lilian Imuetinyan Salami has emerged as the second female Vice Chancellor of the institution.

Her appointment came 28 years after Prof. (Mrs.) Alele William left as the first female Vice Chancellor of UNIBEN.

The Public Relations Officer of the University, Mr. Michael Osasuyi, confirmed the appointment in a statement on Friday in Benin.

She will take over from the outgoing Vice Chancellor, Prof. Faraday Osasere Orumwense, whose tenure ends in November.

Inside sources however revealed that the emergence of Professor Salami is a big shock, as she becomes the third person of Benin extraction in succession, to be named Vice Chancellor of the University.

Sources further disclosed that the new UNIBEN VC came second in the exam conducted for aspirants for the exalted position, after Prof. MacDonald Idu who scored the highest marks, while Prof. George Eriyamremu came third.

Professors​ Idu and Eremayanru are both from Delta State.

Born in Jos, Plateau State on August 8, 1956, Prof. Salami, (nee Emovon), hails from Benin.

Her early schooling started in Jos but was truncated by the Nigerian Civil War. She later completed her primary and secondary education in Edo State.

She obtained her West African School Certificate (O’ levels) from Baptist High School, Benin City.

She proceeded to the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point Campus, United States of America, in 1975. She had her summer schooling in the University of Minnesota, St. Paul. She later transferred to North Dakota State University, Fargo after she got married in 1977, where she obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in 1979 in Home Economics and Master’s degree in Nutrition in 1982.

She returned to Nigeria in 1983 and enrolled to serve in the National Youth Service Corps in Benin City.

Upon completion of the national service, she made a brief start of her teaching career with the then University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University).

Between 1985 and 1994, she lectured Nutrition at the University of Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria.

This was interjected when she gained admission into University of Nigeria, Nsukka for a doctoral degree in Human Nutrition in 1989 which she obtained in 1991.

    Why not appoint Prof. MacDonald Idu who scored the highest mark during the interview for the position. Pls note that Uniben is a Federal University, not Edo State University. Pls let’s do the right thing for peace to reign in this Country, Nigeria.

COVID-19: Apostle Suleman’s shocking revelations expose those behind virus

COVID-19: Apostle Suleman's shocking revelations expose those behind virus

Senior Pastor and General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International, Johnson Suleman (popularly known as Apostle Suleman), has made shocking revelations about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease ravaging the world.

Speaking during his church ‘Fire Night’ programme, held on Friday 27th March, 2020, the clergy said the agenda behind COVID-19 is to create a new world order.

Read the statement below:

“The Lord said I gave this world to man and as such I don’t do anything in the world until man invites me with understanding in the place of prayer. The nation in question (China) has sinned greatly against the Lord. They wanted to make thier own moon shine brighter than the natural moon. Their power tussle is between a particular nation and they want to bring that nation under their feet.

“Covid-19 is an experiment and they are happy that they could shake the world and they would wait for another two years. In 2022 if I tarry to come, something worse will still come and it will originate from them.

“The world leaders are coming together to make a synergy that will make all religions have a common ground and the pope is part of it. America is their target but the current president Donald Trump is their obstacle. America should not joke with the next general elections as they will all support the opponent.

“The opponent is not the issue but his running mate is the issue. The running mate is a lady and If the opponent wins, the opponent will be impeached for the lady to take over and fulfill the new world order.

“Their agenda is to humiliate him(Trump). They have succeeded in humiliating him while they are free from it but the prayer of the saints will reverse it and America will be healed. The virus was manufactured by this people (China) it is not a biological issue, it is a chemical weapon.

“Many people contacted it through testing, once you go for the test you are infected. The few that are not positive is to balance the equation and make people believe it is real.

“The vaccine will come, but the vaccine will carry the actual disease. It is loaded with signals to control the human body by sending signals from the body to their data base, that would be the only proof to them that you are safe, virus free and you are not contaminated.

“When they tell you to take the vaccine and you refuse, you’ll be denied alot of things. Italy was sacrificed for this agenda because the pope is a part of this that is why we saw almost the largest cases in Italy it was not coincidence, it was a sacrifice.

“The policy of not having people gather together to reduce and contain the virus is targeted at disrupting the believers from gathering to pray because they know when believers gather together to pray thier plans and agenda will end up in futility we must not keep quiet as the prayers of the saints will stop them.

“All believers must lift up thier voice against the spirit of the new world order and scatter the agenda of the anti christ. They will come up with a new currency to unify the world and solidify control. Purify your body of any sin because they target your body.

“They have tried this and it has worked. By June to August different agenda to unify the world will begin. Kuwait, Malaysia, Egypt, Singapore, hongkong, Thailand, Madagascar, Saudi Arabia, America, needs special prayers.

“If the church can pray using Jeremiah 17:14, Matthew 17:14, the anti christ will not over come the church. If the church rise up in unity, purity and prayers then God will rise up and prove that he is still on the throne.
