Published

on

In a strategic move to integrate secondary school students as an important socio-economic group whose energy and creativity should be harnessed towards attaining the vision for Greater Lagos, the Lagos State Government is working with Entertainment Media Limited, Publishers of E24-7 Magazine and FlipTV, to organise an annual Lagos High School Band Challenge (LHSBC).

LHSBC is designed to be a live music competition among secondary school students in Lagos in both public and private schools across the state’s five educational and administrative divisions.

The Lagos State Ministry of  Tourism, Arts and Culture in a letter of endorsement noted  that the Governor Akinwunmi Ambode-led administration “values the intention of Entertainment Media Limited to organise the Lagos High School Band Challenge, a secondary school focused talent hunt competition designed to promote the knowledge of live music and performance using musical instruments among students.”

Expressing his appreciation to Lagos State Government for the partnership, Executive Producer and Chief Executive of Entertainment Media Limited, Biodun Kupoluyi, said LHSBC will help to discover and nurture musical talents among secondary school students in Lagos State.

“We are happy that Lagos State Government is working with us on this project and has gone ahead to include it in its annual Tourism, Arts and Culture Calendar as one of the initiatives the state will promote.  We welcome this endorsement from Lagos State Government and we have been challenged to inspire the students as the focus of the initiative,” he said.

Mr. Kupoluyi noted that the project is a Pan-Lagos Initiative that will involve Secondary School Students in both public and private schools across the five divisions of the state.

“There will be the elimination stages, the quarter-final, semi-final and the grand finale where prizes will be won. The grand finale is scheduled to hold in June on World Music Day.

“We want to bring back the golden era of School Bands in Lagos State where secondary schools have performing bands that perform during school social events and at state/national functions. We also want to use this medium to call on corporate Nigeria, especially corporate organisations that target youths and teenagers, to come on board and partner with us. There is a huge opportunity for branding and touch points for brands to connect with young people in Lagos State,” Kupoluyi concluded.

Primate Ayodele celebrates birthday, speaks on 2019 elections, empowers the needy (PHOTOS)

Published

Servant of God at INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Lagos, Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele, has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, will defeat the incumbent president, Muhammad Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the presidential election of Saturday, February 23, 2019 if the process is free and fair.
Ayodele made this declaration last Thursday during his annual birthday activities tagged  ‘Moments of Appreciation’. February 14 is the cleric’s day and the celebration spans a week when he uses the opportunity to care for the poor and empower women, men, youth, widows, widowers, including paying visits to hospitals and government institutions where he assists spiritually and donates financially and materially.
“If this election is made free and fair, I give it to Atiku,” he says, adding that he saw APC looking for ways to rig it for itself.
“Now, the PDP people are listening to God’s warning. They are doing what God instructed them to do and they are matching the APC bumper to bumper.
If the party keeps this momentum, I see victory,” declares the prophet who says that physically and spiritually, Nigerians are tired of the APC governments at all levels.
Primate Ayodele, however, warned that if President Buhari fails to heed God’s warning and proceed to impose himself on Nigeria, he does not see him finishing the second term in good health.
“I don’t see him completing his term if he gives himself victory in this election. Buhari is too weak to continue. I don’t see him having good health; I don’t see anything coming out of it. Let the APC government leave power honourably.”
The 2019 edition of the event was characterized by series of charity activities. The Shepherd in charge of the Celestial Church of Christ (Genesis Parish), Prophet Israel Oladele, was guest minister.
Prophet Oladele, apart from being honoured by Primate Ayodele with a gigantic picture frame of him (Oladele), he also had the honour to present award plaques to honorees which include star music and movie artistes like Ojoge; Dejo Tunfulu; Fuji music veteran, Yoboro Yobonson; Juju music star, Mega ’99 and various other personalities and INRI church members who were empowered with cash gifts, tricycles, sewing machines and other items.
Primate Ayodele also had a word for the APC government on the TraderMoni initiative. “They are not doing anything new. I have been doing this type of empowerment in my own capacity for many years. Without being immodest, I can say I do it better than the government. It is good but this government is doing last what they ought to put first.”
According to Ayodele, “if the APC government had done this when they came to power, Nigerians would not have cause to be angry at them when they need another term.”
Celebrity broadcaster/MC, Soji Omotayo, compered the event.

In a two-minutes video going viral on the social media, Suleman, who said the postponement of the elections did confirm the message he received on January 10, 2019 and relayed to his congregation and the public via the video that the conduct of the 2019 general elections was shaky.

In the said video clip, he Edo State born General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries (OFM), is seeing telling his audience that; “You will be shocked. They will fight themselves. They will be against themselves. They will shame themselves. Can I surprise you; if we do not pray well, I don’t see election. i saw a date that was shifted if we don’t pray. They will give you reasons; there was security threat, there was violence, and because of these we are moving the elections forward. It is just a scam.”

Speaking, Apostle Suleman warned that election should not be turned to war as it must be seen to be free, fair and acceptable to every Nigerian, irrespective of tribe and political leanings. “Unless the authorities do the needful in a way that conforms with what God’s rules, God is not finished with Nigeria yet,’ states Apostle Suleman.
