Why Can’t Maureen, Funmi Cole Stop Lying By Agatha Okonkwo

Published

on

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? I love this scripture and I will always refer it to people who have no business in contributing anything meaningful to people’s lives and only mean bad news.

Maureen is obviously not someone to listen to. She has been rocking the boats of people with skeletons in their tanks maybe, or black mailing people who do not know what their destiny is about and that gave you the effrontery to touch the anointed of GOD.

Maureen, this time you touched the apple of God’s eye. Dr. D.k Olukoya and MFM are not names you mention for evil and get away with. I have also done so many investigations on your matters and none have I seen with such fabrications and lies.

Maureen, the woman you invited to your show to speak about Ireland branch and rubbish about MFM DEALINGS and so on, DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA OR KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE LADY? Just because you want cheap publicity and powered by dark motives to pull down a weight that is A BILLION TIMES heavier than you, YOU COULDN’T TAKE OUT A LITTLE TIME TO INVESTIGATE THE people you feature IN YOUR SHOW. I am not surprised, I almost forgot you are not a TRUE journalist; you are just a cheap blogger who cannot even hold a complete English sentence.

For your information one million Maureen GIO TV can not put a scratch on Dr DK Olukoya’s personality and MFM’s image. As far as God is alive, you will always be out to shame .

I launched a small investigation on the lady you brought on board to reveal the truth. Your level of illiteracy stinks to the ocean.

The so-called sister Funmi Cole, as she is known and addressed , is not in any way a leader of any group or has any position whatsoever at the mountain of fire and miracles ministries in Ireland as she has claimed. She is a member of the ministry no doubt and a volunteer worker because of how the church has lifted and supported her and her family from nothing to something over the years. Neither is her husband a pastor in any branch or have been ordained or gone through MFM schools and graduated to become a pastor. if they have, they can come out to tell us who ordained them or the MFM school they attended.

My investigation from my people here in America shows that Funmi Cole was only a member of the church and her hubby an administrator for some period of time before they left the ministry. She is perpetually known for her questionable, rude and negative seed sowing character, her strange and fierce approach to issues, and quarrelsome personality. We were told that she is always at the verge of fighting at every point in time. There is no one person that she has not fought with including her own husband

We gathered that at a time she had a brawl with one of the choir leaders in the pastor’s office and they were asked to come for a settlement. Instead, they abused each other both physically and verbally and as such, they were disciplined by the disciplinary committee of the church and were practically suspended.

Now, instead of her to conform to the measures put in place to correct her ways, she decided to leave the church, and to an extent her leaving the ministry brought certain peace to members, workers and ministers.

We found out through our investigations here that when they first came to Ireland, it was MFM ministries that took them from the hostel that they were leaving and provided for them, the woman gave testimony that she has had 9 miscarriages before coming to MFM while looking for the fruit of the womb and it was this same ministry through the prayers of Dr Olukoya that brought them joy of parenthood and all the comfort that they have today.

The son that she spoke about was sponsored by the church to a musical school to learn how to play instruments because its sheer practice of the church to develop and groom talents from very tender age, and because she was suspended she stopped the child from coming to CHURCH, we learnt that this woman is known as a pathological liar. And one who’s never at peace with people

Maureen, let me tell you, if you hit your head against a rock, don’t expect the rock to break, you should be thinking of how to survive. You have gone too far with your lies and fabrications. The Modele Soyinka that you tried to use against herself and her family thinking that you were trying to do Dr Olukoya and MFM harm has realized her mistakes in joining hands with you

Her family has written an open letter of Apology and rebuttal against your madness, find it attached below before I leave you to your lies today. I have this verse from the scriptures for you. “He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved”. As a woman like you I will advise that you think about this when you think of cooking your evil plans against D.k Olukoya and MFM. We know true men of God and we will not stop to bring out the truth. ONCE AGAIN I PITY THOSE WHO LISTEN AND GIVE DONATIONS TO THIS SYCOPHANT CALLED MAUREEN. YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME AND MONEY ON A SWINDLER AND A FRAUD

THE OPEN LETTER FROM THE SOYINKAS

Rebuttal & Apology

Letter

Dr. D.K. Olukoya & The Mountain of Fire & Miracles

Ministries (MFM)

December 23, 2020

ISSUED BY

The late Rev. Josiah Olubode Soyinka’s Family

REPRESENTATIVES

Mrs. Adenike Deborah O. Soyinka (wife & mother)

Mr. Daniel H. Oludayo Soyinka (son)

Mrs. Blooming Umoren (Nee Soyinka) (daughter

Introduction & Background

The purpose of this letter is to rebut and apologize to Dr. Daniel Kolawole Olukoya and the Mountain of Fire & Miracles Ministries about the recent allegations that surfaced over the internet jointly by Omodele Esther Soyinka Amoo and Maureen Badejo. In these online publications, both Omodele Soyinka and Maureen Badejo raised the accusations below:

1. Dr. D.K. Olukoya caused our father’s death or killed our father – Rev. J.O. Soyinka

2. Dr. Olukoya owns or planning to own the property at #1 Emily Akinola Street, Akoka, Yaba Lagos

The Rebuttal

We, the family of the late Rev. Josiah Olubode Soyinka – specifically Mrs. Adenike Deborah Soyinka, Mr. Daniel H. Oludayo Soyinka and Mrs. Blooming Umoren (Nee Soyinka) rebut these allegations as follows:

1. First and foremost, Rev. J.O. Soyinka died of a natural cause at the age of 69 on September 4, 1999. Dr. D. K. Olukoya neither caused the death of our father nor killed our father – Rev. J.O. Soyinka.

Our father was a faithful servant in the vineyard of God and even his last sermon on August 22, 1999 titled – A Broken & A Contrite Heart at the Apostolic Faith Church, right at the close of the Camp meeting provides a glimpse into the state of his mind. In his words,

“ The Mission is Accomplished. I can now say now lettest thy servant depart in peace for mine eyes hath

seen Thy salvation which you have prepared for all people to the glory of Israel your people.”

He knew he was ready to meet with his Master, Our Lord Jesus Christ and waved

Everyone goodbye with the farewell song – Away, Far over Jordan, we’ll meet in that beautiful land.

2. Secondly, our father was faithful in God’s vineyard to his final moments and it’s ludicrous to think or say that Dr. D.K Olukoya had a hand in his death. Dr. D.K. Olukoya caused or killed Rev. J.O. Soyinka. Let it be known that Dr. D.K. Olukoya did not cause the death of our father nor kill him.

3. Thirdly, Dr. D.K. Olukoya does not own or intend to own the property at #1 Emily Akinola Street, Akoka, and Yaba Lagos. This is the property of our father -late Rev. J. O. Soyinka and our mother, Mrs. Adenike Deborah Olufolahan Soyinka, both gathered resources together and built. The property is owned by Mrs. Adenike Deborah Olufolahan Soyinka, the only wife of the late Rev. Josiah Olubode Soyinka. The property has never been sold or nor intended to be sold to Dr. D.K. Olukoya or the Mountain of Fire & Miracles Ministries (MFM).

4. The property is rented to the Mountain of Fire & Miracles Ministries (MFM) and since occupancy is maintained by the same, MFM makes rent payments to Mrs. Adenike Deborah O. Soyinka when due. There’s no interest whatsoever to sell the property to Dr. D.K. Olukoya or to the Mountain of Fire & Miracles Ministries.

3 The Apology

Dear Father,

With a bleeding, but grateful heart to God, we, Mrs. Adenike Deborah Soyinka, Mr. Daniel H. Oludayo Soyinka and Mrs. Blooming Umoren (Nee Soyinka) , write to you at this time. We really, really and indeed really appreciate and thank God Almighty for you, your life, ministry and immeasurable acts of love. Words cannot truly capture or quantify your impact in our lives and family, especially your countless efforts of life-saving effects, material provisions and most-importantly … spiritual guidance. Dr. Daniel Kolawole Olukoya, God bless you real good Daddy. We write with regards to the mind-boggling and grossly demeaning online posts made by ‘Omodele Soyinka Amoo’. We are using the letter to apologize to your Sir and the entire Mountain of Fire & Miracles Ministries. We regret and deeply sorry for the defamations, insults, and blatant lies she published. Kindly accept our most-sincere apology Sir. Honestly, Dear Father, we are not surprised, shocked nor disappointed at such a thing from her to you or even anyone in particular, as we know her too well to be capable, efficient and fully empowered for such an open show of herself in ‘muddy waters’.

4 We don’t intend to bore or bother you with many words, but to say the very least: we’re hugely rued at the content and context of all she posted and we are deeply sorry Sir. We hereby state and affirm that:

1. We are personally grossly disappointed at ourselves for being a blood relation of such a bloody person; in any case, we’re grateful to God for the gift of life.

2. In no way, part or form are we affiliated in kinship support, studded provision of ideas or any kind of information about what Omodele Soyinka posted online, offline or otherwise.

3. No part of our being is in consonance, agreement or alignment with any of what she stated or posted against you – Dr. D.K. Olukoya, the Mountain of Fire & Miracles Ministries, our mother, Mrs. Adenike Deborah Olufolahan Soyinka, or any other individual.

4. Sincerely, we are not a party in whatsoever capacity, figure, representation or touch to whatever she talked about and indeed: all she posted and whatever she would still do or post, with regards to this matter or whatsoever matter now or/and in future.

5. We are grateful to God for you and the impact you’ve had on the Soyinka family right from the first time we came in contact with you. Adherence to the principles and precepts of your teachings of the Word of God, Prayer Battles and Discipline are the capital reasons why we are still alive! Your teachings, guidance, provisions, love and fatherly care has provided us with a solid foundation to build our lives on. We are who we are today because of your countless investments into our lives and families. Words fail us, as these few pages cannot truly capture all you’ve done and continue to do for our family.

6. Please Dear Daddy, we know that these posts are a huge setback, but we want to humbly encourage you, to see it as an action synonymous to Jesus’ Crucifixion. God is set to use her ill actions to add more value, relevance and importance to You and the Mountain of Fire & Miracles Ministries … just as the devil was used to fulfill the glorification of Jesus Christ.

7. You have our 100% support in and/for whatever you need us to do, in pursuit of The Truth. With these statements and submission of ours, we apologize to you Sir as a family and we regret all the inconveniences and character defamations caused. We are deeply sorry Sir.

We once again say that we are grateful to God for your presence in our lives and we do not take your impact in our lives for granted. The Almighty God will continually bless you, Dr. D. K. Olukoya. You will continue to go from glory to glory. The impact of your ministry is known worldwide and you’re a major threat to the kingdom of darkness. So whatever tactic or avenue used, we know that we are more than conquerors

Dear Daddy, we are reminded always of your formidable strides in the Spirit and your legacy of purity, holiness and integrity; based on these, we are humbled to note to you again and again that you’re one of God’s Generals for the end time and we are not ignorant of the devices of the enemies. We love you so much and will always do.

Again, on behalf of the family of the late Rev. Josiah Olubode Soyinka, specifically, Mrs. Adenike Deborah Soyinka, Mr. Daniel H. Oludayo Soyinka and Mrs. Blooming Umoren (Nee Soyinka) , we rebut and deeply apologize for these false allegations and accusations by Omodele Soyinka Amoo. Kindly forgive us and our family.

Warm Regards,

Mrs. Adenike Deborah Soyinka (wife & mother)

Mr. Daniel H. Oludayo Soyinka (son)

Mrs. Blooming Umoren (Nee Soyinka) (daughter)

LCCI DG Says New E-commerce Group Will Ensure a More Conducive Policy And Regulatory Environment For The Sector

Published

on

E-commerce

From improving sales volume, to facilitating automated processes in business transactions and the application of new technology, there’s no disputing the fact that ecommerce is opening up the Nigerian economy at an impressive rate.

Thriving on a digital economy platform, ecommerce boasts an incredible level of cost-efficiency of connecting sellers with buyers, which makes it a potent tool for business growth, especially for SMEs.

Interestingly, the unfolding relevance and inherent benefit of the ecommerce ecosystem is beginning to attract the interest of relevant stakeholders.

Recently, CBN Governor, Godwin Emiefiele stated that the digital space and its accompanying economic activities will further open up the Nigerian economy, drive financial inclusion and create more jobs.

According to Emiefiele, the impact is obvious for all to see, as the regulatory framework put in place by the apex bank has opened up the digital space for innovation in the Payment Service System thus driving financial inclusion and employment creation.

Few weeks after Emiefile’s comments, the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, (LCCI) announced the inauguration of an ecommerce sectoral group under its banner in conjunction with Jumia and other ecommerce players.

Among other things, the group is expected to support the development of private enterprises in various sectors of the Nigerian economy by exposing their products to a larger market.

Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry was established for the promotion and protection of Trade and Industry, and to represent and express the opinion of the business community on matters affecting trade and industry in Lagos, and by extension Nigeria.

Speaking on the essence of the ecommerce group, Director General of Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Dr. Muda Yusuf explained that the pivotal role taken up by digital platforms in the Nigerian economy in recent times, necessitated the formation of the group.  “Digital platforms have been playing a major role in the issue of trade and commerce in the country, so this informed the formation of the ecommerce group in LCCI,” he stated.

The ultimate goal is to achieve a robust digital economy that will work to the benefit of all stakeholders. On this front, the DG stated that the group will work towards attainment of a more conducive policy and regulatory environment needed for the industry to thrive for the benefit of all stakeholders.

“The beneficiaries are all the investors in that space; the government and the entire players in the economy because the whole idea is to ensure that we create a better policy and regulatory environment for that segment of the economy to thrive, grow and contribute a lot more to the Nigerian economy.”

While working with key players in the ecommerce industry was a masterstroke by LCCI, the appointment of the group Chairman was a well thought out process.

At the inauguration of the group, Jumia Chairwoman and Head of Institutional Affairs, Juliet Anammah was appointed Chairman to lead the group activities. Commenting on the appointment, Yusuf said the group felt that Juliet with her wealth of experience and position in the industry, is best suited to drive the affairs of the group towards attainment of its objectives.

“The choice was informed by the fact that she’s the chair of a major player in the industry, Jumia is a major player in the ecommerce space. And we felt that such a person is best positioned to drive this initiative by LCCI,” he stated.

The ecommerce space is gaining more relevance in Nigeria. The recent attention by stakeholders to the sector is a welcome development, and if properly managed and given adequate policy cum legislative support, will go a long way in improving the country’s economic fortunes.

FIRST BANK SAGA: ADESOLA’S REINSTATEMENT A REAFFIRMATION OF AUTHORITY

Published

on

FirstBank

The reaffirmation of Adesola Adeduntan as the Managing Director First Bank by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is a strategic and bold decision aimed at stabilizing Nigeria’s financial sector.

 

 

Adesola Adeduntan, the Managing Director of First Bank is a miracle-working Banker. Unlike the middling marabou, his miracles aren’t deceptive in nature rather each one is an event that creates faith in his abilities as fiscal guru and bank chief. Adeduntan is not just administrative Managing Director (MD) but a seasoned leader.

 

 

Administrators are always cheap and easy to find, and even cheaper to keep but leaders are worth their weight in gold. Leaders are risk takers and they are often in very short supply; ones with enduring vision however, like Adeduntan, are pure gold.

 

 

When he assumed the mantle of leadership at First Bank, pundits believed he had come in to play the role of an undertaker due to the destructive plunder visited on the bank by its previous directors.

 

 

However, Adeduntan eventually rescued the bank from collapse. Besides entrenching a culture of professionalism and excellent results in the bank, he ensured that there are no more dirty deals going on within the bank’s halls.

 

 

There’s sanity in First bank even as you read. The Bank Chief understands that leadership is not just about operationalising some empty formulae but establishing deep connection at group and personal levels through service, determination, uprightness, and poise.

 

Within the period, he has transformed the bank via visionary initiatives and he has also done a great deal to reclaim debts owed the bank by defaulting clients. Since he assumed leadership, he has outlawed dirty loan deals and is currently on a very successful crusade to reclaim huge loan debts from the bank’s chronic debtors.

 

 

 

Little wonder some disgruntled elements within the bank want him out by all possible means.

 

 

According to the letter doing the rounds and also signed by Haruna B. Mustafa, this particular letter noted that CBN’s attention had been drawn to media reports that the Board of Directors had approved the removal of the current Managing Director of the bank, Dr. Sola Adeduntan and appointed a successor.

 

 

The apex bank stated that it was concerned that this action was taken without due consultation with the regulatory authorities especially given the systemic importance of First Bank Ltd.

 

The Bank noted that since Adeduntan’s tenure was yet to expire and there was no report from the Board of any infraction, there therefore appears to be no apparent justification for the removal.

 

 

The CBN said it was particularly concerned because the purported removal of Adeduntan was coming at a time the CBN has provided various liquidity support to reposition the bank.

 

 

Adding “It is also curious that to observe that the sudden removal of the MD/CEO was done about eight months to the expiry of his second tenure which is due on December 31, 2021.

 

“The removal of a sitting MD/CEO of a systematically important bank that has been under regulatory forbearance for 5 to 6 years without prior consultation and justifiable basis has dire implications for the bank and also portends significant risks to the stability of the financial system.

 

Dr. Adesola was appointed the Executive Director/Group Chief Financial Officer of First Bank, in July 2014. As the Executive Director/Group CFO, he handled the banks’ financial control, internal control and enhancement, business performance management, treasury and procurement functions.

 

After 2years with First Bank, Dr Adesola was appointed the Managing Director of the bank, succeeding Bisi Onasanya. He resumed the role on the 4th of January 2016.

 

Dr Adesola’s office covers the bank’s commercial banking subsidiaries which include: FBN UK, FBN Ghana, FBN DRC, FBN Guinea, FBN Gambia, FBN Mortgages, and First Pension Custodian Limited.

 

After Adesola concluded his compulsory NYSC service year, he got a job at the main branch of Afribank (Nig) Plc, Ibadan, as a graduate trainee. He worked at Afribank for 18 months, carrying out different banking operations, including cash management, clearing, credit risk management, and foreign operations.

 

Dr Adesola left Afribank in September 1995 and started working with Arthur Andersen Nigeria. He rose to a managerial role in the firms’ financial department, before leaving the firm in May 2002.

 

As a manager, Dr Adesola pioneered and supervised the statutory audit of some leading Nigerian banks. Before he became a manager, he was the lead instructor of the local office basic accounting training and induction course in 1999

 

. In 2000, he served as an instructor at the Andersen World-Wide induction training for new hires in Eindhoven, Netherlands.

Igbo & Yoruba are the Biggest Fools in Africa, By Biodun Omole

Published

on

Fools

Nigeria is a strange item Of the 16 Republics in the world, only Nigeria uses empty landmass as federating units, instead of ethnic nationalities.

 

Nigeria is the only oil-producing country where oil blocks are allocated to individuals, instead of government.
Nigeria is the only country in the world whose Constitution maintains a conflicting dual ideology – Democracy and Sharia.

 

As both cannot co-habit, one must give way. That is the War going on now under Buhari’s watch. Recall the Sultan of Sokoto – who doubles as Head of Fulani Oligarchy and Nigerian Monarchy – recently declared in USA that he does not recognise the Nigerian Constitution, but Sharia only.

 

“It is to be ignorant and blind in the Science of Commanding Armies, to think that a general has anything more important to do than to apply himself to learning the inclinations and the character of his adversary”. John Laffin [Links of Leadership].

 

While the Igbo and  were busy roaming the world and ravaging all schools and libraries – studying the ancestral cultures of the Greeks, Romans, Turks, Cappadocia, Mongols, Spartans, etc, their common mole in-house (), concentrated at home perfecting psychological Jihad to lock their horns in perpetual duel of vain supremacy and foolish pride.

 

No doubt, the Fulani have succeeded in exploiting the mutual sense of insanity between the  and Yoruba.

 

Fulani is a culture of war and domination – ruthless military and political strategists. As parasites, they penetrate their host through guise and guile – deception. Recall these two encounters:

 

 

•Uthman dan Fodio vs. King Yunfa of Gobir Kingdom [then Hausa] now Sokoto by Fulani.
•Janta Alimi vs. Oba Afonja of Ilorin [then Yoruba] now Fulani.

 

 

When your brother is in trouble, you are in trouble, unless you are insane.

 

At the height of the Jos ownership crisis: “Look at Kano, Bida, and Ilorin – the Fulanis who are ruling there are non-indigenes and I can’t see why the same treatment will not be accorded to Jos … otherwise, there will be no peace in Nigeria” – Tanko Yakassai, former political sdviser to President Shehu Shagari [Vanguard Newspaper, 26 Jan 2009].

 

From Grazing Route – Grazing Reserve – Cattle Colony – Ranching – Grass from Brazil – inland Waterways – N100 billion to Miyeti Allah – Fulani ethnic Radio – RUGA – e-registration of illegal aliens – Military Ranching – back to inland Waterways again!

 

Taqiyya in action. The story keeps changing, but the subject matter remains the same – land takeover!

 

Remember Terwase Agwarza [aka GANA] – a Benue militia leader who repented, laid down his arms, and surrendered to Nigeria’s security for amnesty. And the military killed him in surrender.

 

But in Katsina, Governor Masari and some military officers held a peace meeting with terrorist bandits. The bandits attended carrying assault rifles in the presence of the governor and the military, yet nobody killed anybody. They know themselves!

 

Few weeks ago, UAE announced that it had convicted six Nigerians for funding Boko Haram terrorists. Nigerian government would not collaborate with UAE to track down BH sponsors. It’s still busy hunting #ENDSARS# sponsors!

 

Rather, FG had advised the convicts to appeal to the Supreme Court in UAE, promising to also use diplomatic avenues to help them out! They know themselves.

 

Recall it was “Igbo coup 1966” – to unite other Nigerians against Igbo. Then came “No Victor No Vanquished 1970” – to deny responsibility after the genocide.

 

Recently it became “IPOB is a terrorist organisation” – to divert attention from the real terrorists, and to justify further pogrom on the Igbo. And now, it’s “Igbo sponsored #ENDSARS to overthrow Buhari’s government”.

 

Also, “Igbo destroyed Yoruba economic assets in Lagos”.

 

Meanwhile, Buhari and his Fulani tribesmen [local and imported] have been executing “their mandate” happily and successfully.

 

The rest of Nigerians – the highly educated and civilised, the sleeping majority, the self-defeating saints, etc., are the only ones thinking that Buhari is worried, that FG is failing Nigerians, that Buhari is fighting BH, poverty, etc., and that Nigeria is practising democracy.

 

“The world will never respect Africa until Nigeria earns that respect” —Nelson Mandela.

 

Madiba, Father of Africa! I tearfully regret to inform you that the Igbo and Yoruba of Nigeria, locked in a most foolish contest of wild goose chase, while the stranger plunders their common inheritance, have insanely sworn to “fall your hand”.

 

If your brother is in trouble, you are in trouble, unless you are insane.
