The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has enjoined all participants at the church’s annual convention, which begins on Monday with the ordination of deacons/deaconesses at the Redemption Camp on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, to prepare themselves for unprecedented breakthrough and a new level of walk with God.

The church’s 63rd convention billed to run for one week is expected to attract Nigeria’s Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, and other anointed ministers of the gospel from local and international circuit.

In a welcome address to the thousands of people who defied yesterday’s downpour in parts of the country on their voyage to the camp, Pastor Adeboye urged them to remember to obey all camp rules and be at the right place at the right time, while assuring them of an encounter with God again as “He decrees goodness, mercy, favour, and healing into your life.”

The text of the welcome message read in part: “The Lord has preserved us to see another convention of His church and to participate in the blessings that he alone can give. We, therefore, welcome you to the convention of The All-Sufficient God. This year’s theme holds lots of promises for all of us who will participate in all the proceedings and our lives will be imparted in ways we have never imagined.

“The All Sufficient One has enough blessings to give all His children because there is no shortage in His storehouse. He appeared to Abraham as the El Shaddai, the One who is more than enough (Gen 17:1), and He is still the same till this moment.

During this convention, He will release His all-sufficiency concerning all your long-awaited miracles and you will become a testimony in the name of Jesus.

“The All Sufficient One rules by decrees. He commanded light where there was darkness and darkness had no option but to take its leave (Gen 1:3). He commanded ravens to feed Elijah and they did not miss their way (1 Kings 17:4-6). He is the One who calls those things that be as though they were (Romans 4:17) and He has not changed. You will encounter Him again as He decrees goodness, mercy, favour, and healing into your life.

“He spoke to the sea and the waves and there was peace. He will speak into your situations and you will have new experience of fulfillment. He spoke to the emptiness of a widow and she became an oil merchant, and her disgrace was turned to abundance. Get ready for a deluge of miracles.

“His promises cover every aspect of your life – spiritual, physical, emotional, financial and material. Zacchaeus was rich but he needed something money could not buy. He sought the attention of Jesus (Luke 19:2-8). Salvation entered his house, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the whole world visited him and his past was washed away. There will be salvation galore during this convention.

“It is the opportunity you have been waiting for in order to make peace with God. Hannah, the mother of Samuel, did not visit Shiloh in vain. She returned with her bundle of joy. You will be the next in the line.”

Reps Committees probes identities of contractors involved in N18.9b bush clearing contracts

Published

on

The Public Account Committee of the House of Representatives, PAC on Wednesday, resolved to unmask the real identities of the owners of the companies which took contracts valued the sum of N18.9 billion from the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development for clearing of bushes, land preparation, rehabilitation of soil plant lab and others during the last COVID-19 lockdown of the country.

The resolution followed the appearance of representatives of two of the 20 affected companies at the resumed investigative hearing of the Committee on queries to Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs of the federal government by the Office of Auditor General of the Federation.

The affected companies are: Easy Construction Company LTD and NUKAAG VENTURES LTD respectively while the remaining 18 companies failed to show up.

The Committee being chaired by Hon Wole Oke (PDP-OSUN) said that the two representatives of the Companies (Johnson Philip and Taiwo Idowu), were of the Managerial cadre and as such not competent to appear before the Committee going by the Rules of the House.

Responding to a question posed by the Chairman of the Committee on whether they were familiar with the submission submitted to the Committee on the award and execution of the contractors so as not to mislead it, they both said no.

Consequently, the Committee directed the duo to leave immediately and directed that the Managing Directors or Chairmen of the companies should personally appear before it and speak to the submission before the Committee.

In addition, Hon Oke directed the Clerk of the Committee to write to the Registrar General of the Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC to furnish the Committee, the detailed information of the affected 20 companies, including year of incorporation, Corporate offices, names of the owners, shareholders amongst others.

According to him, “we are not concerned about who won the contracts, what we are after is to deter value for money paid out and the sites of the projects, and we will carry that mission to the latter.

“The Clerk should also write the Federal Inland Revenue Services, FIRS, to furnish the Committee about the financial status of the companies.

Hon Oke assured that the Committee would carry out a diligent investigation into the matter as it was interested in finding out the location of the projects and the significance of such projects to the country.

The Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company (IKEC) has announced a shutdown of operations following the issues between the National Union of Electricity Employees and the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TUC).

In a statement on Wednesday via its verified Twitter handle, @IkejaElectric, the Disco announced the shutdown of operations.

The statement read partly, “Due to the ongoing nationwide picketing of Transmission Stations by the NUEE, we are currently experiencing disruption of power supply as most stations within our network have been shut down.

“Kindly bear with us as we await an amicable resolution by the relevant stakeholders.”

Organised labour had on Tuesday directed workers in the power sector to shutdown and commence an indefinite strike over pending issues with the TCN.

The aggrieved workers under the aegis of the NUEE were at the Abuja national headquarters of the TCN Tuesday as a prelude to the proposed strike.

The union noted that the strike was in protest of a directive by the TCN Board mandating all PMs in acting capacity going to the Annual General Meeting to appear for promotional interviews.

In a circular titled, ‘Call to Action,’ which was addressed to senior assistant general secretaries and zonal organising secretaries, dated August 15, 2022, the General Secretary of the NUEE, Joe Ajaero, directed electricity workers to ensure total compliance, vowing to paralyse operations of the TCN nationwide over anti-masses activities.
