Ned Nwoko urges ASELGON to be committed to nation building

A former member of the Federal House of Representatives and an international lawyer of repute, Prince Ned Nwoko has urged members of the Association of Ex-Local Government Chairmen of Nigeria (ASELGON) to be committed to nation building.
Nwoko spoke during his investiture as the Grand Patron of the Association in his mansion in Idumuje Ugboko, Delta State on Saturday 23rd November, 2019.
The politician stated that the responsibility was big for him as the first grand patron of the association, adding that he would do his best to support their ideals.
“I have no doubt that with little support and your zeal, you will play a lot of roles in nation building.
“I am a grassroots person also, even if you have 30% support across all the local governments, you can make a lot of difference,” he said.
The former lawmaker told the members of the association that their job required consistency and commitment.
He lamented that Nigeria is a country of survival of the fittest unlike Britain, which he said was different because, according to him, they understand what politics is all about service.
“I will support your cause and join hands with you so that we can all move Nigeria forward.
“My joy is to see that Nigeria catches up with the rest of the world and we can achieve a lot of things together with unity and commitment to our cause as a group and individually,” he said, while commending the members of ASELGON for their coming up with such an association.
Nwoko however, said that what was needed in Nigeria was a level of exposure and the zeal to do what is right.
According to him, if we have 60% of the people in offices understanding why they were elected, Nigeria would be better.
He regretted that the country had not laid the foundation for good governance, while saying that he was non-partisan within him.
While saying that he could be more comfortable living abroad, he said that he preferred to stay in Nigeria and urged the people to live above religious sentiments.
Earlier in his address, the National President of ASELGON, Hon. Albert Asipa said that the Forum was inaugurated in 2013 as an umbrella body for ex-local government chairmen to provide a platform for them as experienced  individuals who still have a lot to contribute immensely to the overall development of the third tier of government in Nigeria.
Asipa stated that the forum was of the opinion that the choice of Prince Ned Nwoko as a Grand Patron of the association would further enhance their resolve to reposition  local government administration in Nigeria for good; “taking into cognizance, your unrelenting effort in the years past to get a share of the  Paris refund to the coffers of local government councils across the nation.
“This particular feat and other factors culminated in today’s Award of Excellent Service to Humanity and investiture as ASELGON Grandpatron.”
Also speaking, the National Organising Secretary of ASELGON, Hon. Abayomi Tella revealed that the name of Prince Ned Nwoko came up, when they had their NEC meeting in Abuja.
“We discussed who could be our Grand Patron and we went into the internet and saw the name of Prince Ned Nwoko. We discovered that he sponsored about 20 bills as a member of the Federal House of Representatives within four years.
“You will not only serve the people of  Delta State, you will serve the whole Nigeria, where all of us would benefit.
“We would want the Grand Patron to take us as partners in the development of Nigeria, and Africa as a whole and support us to deal with all our challenges,” he said.
The investiture was attended by former local government chairmen across the 36 states of the federation representing the 774 local governments of Nigeria.

Primate Ayodele to S’West govs: “You’re breeding terrorists with Amotekun” +His fulfilled prophecies on rain and air crash

Published

on

The founder and spiritual leader at INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele (JP), has warned that the decision by governors of Southwest Nigeria to establish a security outfit for the region called Amotekun, was a risky one.

The popular seer, during a Sunday service message at his church headquarters in Lagos, said the governors have set the tone for those who would exploit their good intention for fanatical purposes.

“Southwest governors are creating internal terrorists. The governors must be careful,” Ayodele cautioned, “so that Amotekun does not become another terror group in the Southwest region through those who might want to use it for purposes other than solving people’s security challenges.”

The cleric, at the service, recalled some of his fulfilled prophecies for the new year. They include his warning to the transport union against impending crisis. Ayodele had mid December 2019, warned that the Lagos NURTW leader, MC Oluomo, “should put the house in order because NURTW will experience serious crisis and violence next year.”

On January 12, 2020, the servant of God also asked for rain “within seven days”. The cleric said “whether the weather likes or not, I’m speaking to God as His servant, let there be rain within seven days. Prophets in the Bible prayed, they asked for signs and you listened to them. I stand in that gap and ask for signs for your children; my Lord, answer us with rain. Lord, show us that you are with us in 2020.”

On the evening of Monday, 13th of January, heavy downpour was reported in major cities of the country.

On January 8. Primate Ayodele recalled his November 2019 forewarning that “the first three weeks of the new year would be terrible, except God hears our prayers.”

“America has never experienced earthquake,” said the prophet, “but this year, I foresee America experiencing earthquake for the first time. I speak as servant of God.” Ayodele, who warned on January 7th that, between 2020 and 2022, there will be a big event that would shake the world, noted that prophecy, is the real security report as it is a message that comes straight from God, “but because governments do not understand prophecy or they choose to be stubborn about it, they do not regard it.”

Some of Primate Ayodele’s recent prophecies that have come to pass include the Ukranian plane crash in Iran, the recent attack on churches and Christians, the Iran and America crisis, the renewed attacks on soldiers by the Boko Haram, and many more.
