Daddy Freeze apologises to Bishop Oyedepo

The Convener of the Free the Sheeple Movement and Leader of the Free Nation in Christ otherwise known as Daddy Freeze has tendered an apology for the first time for dishonouring Bishop David Oyedepo.

Ifedayo Olarinde aka Daddy Freeze affirmed that he insulted the founder of Living Faith Church aka Winners Chapel two years ago, and that the video he released went viral just recently.

Daddy Freeze tendered apology to Bishop David Oyedepo in a video clip he released on his official Facebook page on Saturday.

The broadcaster is well known for propagating controversial Christian doctrines which include the non-payment of tithes.

He has been found to be verbally abusing many popular and influential clerics and described those who demand tithe as thieves among other doctrinal debates.

The popular broadcaster Daddy Freeze had faced with a lot of criticism from renowned Nigerian pastors which include Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Dr Paul Eneche and the founder of Salvation Ministries, Pastor David Ibiyeomie for calling Bishop David Oyedepo ‘a balded head man’.

Daddy Freeze said: “Hi guys I’m Daddy Freeze, Convener of the Free the Sheeple Movement and Leader of the Free Nation in Christ I greet you and bring glad tidings.”

“My attention has been drawn to a video I released circa two years, seven months ago while addressing some pertinent issues that arose back then. I apologise for the delivery of my message and for any insult to Bishop David Oyedepo in that video as I didn’t in any way intend to dishonour, disrespect or disregard the person of the bishop.

“The perceived intention to the contrary is regretted. My methods of addressing doctrinal issues have long since devolved to a more scriptural and less confrontational approach. I was, and still, very passionate in my quest to address what I believe are unresolved doctrinal issues, however, from a more amiable perspective.”

Albeit, Daddy Freeze made his belief system known, that Christianity will flourish when believers accept new theological and doctrinal cross-references, and that it would be achieved only in love.

One of the security aides of Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, was said to have shot a newspapers vendor, Ifeanyi Chukwu, in Abuja on Thursday.

Chukwu, who was shot in the head, was rushed to the National Hospital, Abuja, was said to have given up the ghost.

The chairman of the Abuja chapter of the Newspaper Distributors Association of Nigeria, Benjamin Obute, narrated the incident to Daily Trust thus: “What happened was that, at the Federal Secretariat where our vendors sell their papers, you know that place is the heart of Abuja, especially the rep members and senators, that is their route, and traffic lights used to stop them for about two minutes.

“So, while they were hailing them, they used to pack some money and give them. It has been the tradition for years now. Gbajabiamila knows this late Ifeanyi Chukwu one on one.

“While he (the speaker) was waiting for the traffic light to turn green, he handed over N9,000 to his aide in the front seat and handed over the money to them before one of the security details shot him (Chukwu) in the head and shot into the air.

“The speaker stopped and asked what happened, but the police told him nothing and they moved on. The DPO at the Federal Secretariat was one of the persons that arranged how we took late Ifeanyi to the National Hospital where he was confirmed dead.”

Obute said his members would protest today and march to the Force Headquarters to demand justice for their late colleague.

A doctor at the hospital said: “A vendor was shot in the head by a security operative this afternoon. He died after all resuscitative measures at the National Hospital failed.”

Ghana’s Former President Rawlings Dies at 73

Sadness swept over Ghana on Thursday as the former President Jerry Rawlings departed the sinful world at age 73.

The statement released by Ghana’s president, Nana Akufo-Addo, has it that Rawlings died on Thursday morning at a hospital in Accra after brief illness. He said “a great tree is fallen and Ghana is poorer for the loss.”

To set the record straight, Jerry Rawlings seized power twice in military coups but brings democratic rule to the West African country and for this reason, many seen him as a hero.

Rawlings founded National Democratic Congress (NDC), he served two terms as a civilian head of state – from January 1993 to January 2001.

Tributes rolled in as the former President Rawlings died at 73. Prosper Bani, a minister in NDC administration between 2012 and 2017 said: “He had been a very instrumental in raising the voice of the voiceless, championing efforts to recharter the economy and politics in Ghana, and for that matter, we can concretely also remember him as the leader who moved Ghana from a series of coup d’états and dictatorial services of previous regimes into one of democratic rule”.

Vladimir Antwi-Danso, the Dean of Academic Affairs at the Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College said: “The biggest legacy I will grant him is his readiness to accept democracy in the Post-Cold War era where several monolithic governments didn’t want to hand over, but what he did was place himself as part of the game and came to power again in 1992 under a constitutional rule, and therefore ushered in what we now have now, as our pride.”

Rawlings who started as a populist inspired by policies and principles of the defunct Soviet Union later turned to free market to boost the Ghana’s economy. He liberalized, diversified the economy and encouraged adequate investments in gold and oil sector.

Nigerian president, Muhammadu Buhari, said: “The entire African continent will sorely miss the sterling qualities of the great leader.

“The passion, discipline and moral strength that the former Ghanaian leader employed to reposition his country over many years continue to reverberate across the continent and beyond.”

The African Union Commission Chair, Moussa Faki said on twitter: “African has lost a stalwart of pan-africanism and a charismatic continental statesman.”

Meanwhile, President Nana Akufo-Addo and the opposition leader John Mahama both announced a suspension of all campaigns across the country even as the presidential election slated for December 7.

The nation just entered a week of national mourning as a sign of respect for the departed hero.

Nigerian Politicians- Who is deceiving who?

Who is deceiving who?

Naija na cruise” I’ve heard my mates say it over and over again. At first it was Education is a scam, school na scam, now the country itself with the leaders we voted in, Democracy!

After the Lekki Massacre, the report was there was no death, after that 2 people were proclaimed dead, such inconsistency, Sanwo-Olu has been a bad boy, and this is after we watched a live stream of the event, heard the shootings. The massacre is a nightmare that many haven’t woken up from, a gory sight.

Who is deceiving who?

Hours after places had been looted, following the night of the Lekki massacre, our honorable president, Muhammad Buhari, decided to address the country, this is after 13 days after the protest, way after the protest had been hijacked and many lived had been lost, footage here and there of hoodlums killing and burning police officers, in retaliation to what the Police officers had done to them.

 SARS ARE MURDERERS AND ANYBODY THAT SUPPORTS THEM ARE ACCOMPLICES

I’ve heard people say, better be under slavery than be in a country like Nigeria. Isn’t that valid tho? We have a president that isn’t active, live broadcast y’all call it, but that thing was recorded. Blood has been shed and blood cries, but of course our leaders are silent because they think they are unaffected.

Our president couldn’t even address the killings, politicians and godfathers turned it to a game of hide-and-go-seek. Who gave the order? They gingerly commanded that people be killed, now all of a sudden, they had amnesia forgetting who gave the command, they started the game of “burning, never have I ever”. 

Tinubu calls himself the Asiwaju of Lagos, Fashola just had to join this charade, i shake my head, respect for that man has gone downhill, discovering a camera, after severe cleanups had been done?

Bodies have been found floating on the lagoon, close to the shanty, everybody wan jand, Togo is not a bad fit, I laugh as many people have used mouth to cross the Atlantic, our president is saying unrealistic goals, 10 years plan, Sir, you won’t even be in office till then.

Nigeria my country, I weep.

Nigeria my country, who is deceiving who?

Now the army claims to have gotten the order from Lagos state government, after vehemently denying that they were on the site of the shootout. You think Nigerians are gullible, but there is proof.

Smile now, and be happy, your house is on fire O politicians and god fathers of the nation. Its only a while, before your cloth starts burning and you get affected, smile now, when you have the opportunity.

Nigeria will only get better with the hardwork of the youths
