- Prophet Joshua Iginla Joins Private Jet Owners
Prophet Joshua Iginla, the founder of Champions Royal Assembly during his birthday celebration at his Abuja church on Sunday, confirmed that he just acquired a multi-billion Naira jet to further the ministry.
The church in Abuja, known as the city of wonders with 80,000 seater auditorium, isn’t the only wonder as the new jet is another wonder that will ease the missionary work and global impact.
He has tremendously impacted the lives of widows and his pastors. Over 142 widows received 150,000 each and a bag of rice worth 21M. Lands worth over 95M in Abuja was given to 3 widows and some of his pastors.
It is notable that Nigerian Prophets are globally sought after, most times needs arise for them to be in three or four countries in different continents within a day. It is glaring that our transportation industry is still lagging behind compared to other developed countries, hence the acquisition of jets makes the movement easy and impactful achievement of their missionary and evangelical purposes.
Prophet Joshua Iginla is one of living changing clergy who has touched lives positively, he’s addicted to charity works and spent billions towards empowerment project and putting smiles on the faces of less privileged individuals.
During his birthday Celebration in 2017, Prophet Joshua shocked the world by empowering over 115 widows with over #23M. In 2015 he gave out over 32 cars in a day and empowered some church members. In 2016, he gave out 32 cars, empowered artisan and others got generators and cash gift. The widows are not left out as they receive Deep freezers, rice and cash gifts of 150,000 accumulating to over 1.5M. The treasure orphanage Foundation, Nyanya, Divine wound orphanage, Kubuwa and Christ home foundation, kuje and other orphanage received over 1.5M and scholarships were given to students from nursery to University.
With over 1000 widows under his care, he also placed aged ones on a monthly salary and had given accommodation to church members and desolates. Ms Moleofi Mokane was one of the beneficiaries of the Prophet’s good deeds, he learnt about her while on Missionary work in Botswana, the aged woman was living under a tree, and he was touched to build her a two bedroom flat.
The kindheartedness and Benevolence act isn’t restricted to Christians alone. In 2016, the Prophet rendered help by paying overseas treatment bills of a Muslim lady who was poured acid by her boyfriend over an argument.
Prophet Joshua Iginla has been to hundreds of nations to carry out his missionary works. He has been to Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, United States of America, Cameroun, South Africa and so many countries and continents just to preach the word of God. It is noted that he runs a busy missionary schedule round the year globally. Prophet Joshua Iginla is one who is known to have a Prophetic ministry and as such gone to several places to Prophecy deliver and liberate people.
The Prophetic ministry is one which is requested for world-wide, especially in rare cases where a minister like prophet Joshua Iginla who has a very strong teaching ministry. On few occasions, he has missed a crusade because of tight schedule and cancellation of his flight. This destabilized his schedule and the host country that was expecting him for impartation and deliverance.
Acquisition of a Private Jet by Prophet Iginla is a requisite that will enhance his ministry and missionary work across the world. It’s a welcome development for Prophet Joshua Iginla as he joined the league of Nigerian Prophets who have acquired a private jet.
Johnson & Johnson Vaccine Should be Paused in U.S. After ‘Extremely Rare’ Blood Clots, FDA and CDC Say
Federal health agencies on Tuesday recommended pausing the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine after a small number of people experienced “a rare and severe type of blood clot” after receiving the shot.
The Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a statement saying they were “recommending a pause in the use of this vaccine out of an abundance of caution.”
Some 6.8 million people have received the single-shot vaccine in the United States. Of these, six have experienced the clot, the agencies said, adding: “Right now, these adverse events appear to be extremely rare.”
“The CDC and the FDA are taking these concerns about blood clots and the J&J vaccine seriously and are diligently assembling data,” the official said.
An expert outside the government who is familiar with the situation agreed that health officials are taking the matter seriously.
“The CDC is very concerned and they’re very working hard on this and monitoring this closely,” said the expert, who spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the issue.
There have been “four serious cases of unusual blood clots” reported after people received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, according to European health authorities. Like their US counterparts, the European authorities say they’re still investigating these cases and that “it is currently not clear” whether there’s a causal association between the vaccine and the clots.
The concern in the United States isn’t just about the Johnson & Johnson shot per se. At a time when US health officials are encouraging Americans to get vaccinated as soon as they can, there’s a worry that news coverage about clots being studied in relation to Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine might make some Americans more hesitant to get any Covid-19 vaccine.
Vaccine hesitancy is already an issue in the US, and officials at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the US Food and Drug Administration are “thinking through how to communicate about the issue without creating the impression that something might be wrong with the [Johnson & Johnson] vaccine,” the federal health official said.
Another expert familiar with the situation said that was the right approach, stressing the importance of communicating without scaring people.
“I would hope that HHS is having a confab about this right now,” the expert said, referring to the US Department of Health and Human Services.
In a statement, Johnson & Johnson said its tracking of side effects revealed “a small number of very rare events following vaccination. At present, no clear causal relationship has been established between these rare events and the [Johnson & Johson] COVID-19 vaccine.”
The FDA released a statement last week that it was aware of reports of “serious thromboembolic events” in the US that occurred “in a few individuals following receipt of the [Johnson & Johnson] COVID-19 vaccine” and that “at this time we have not found a causal relationship with vaccination.”
36 Million Electricity Meters To Be Installed in Nigeria
Nigeria’s Federal Government plans to install over 36 million electricity meters across the country by the end of the second quarter of 2021.
These efforts according to government, will restore confidence and trust in the power sector as consumers of electricity would no longer be extorted through an estimated billing system that does not match consumption.
Speaking at the inspection of the meter testing facility of the Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (NEMSA) in Enugu, the Minister of State Power, Gody Jeddy Agba, expressed satisfaction at the level of work and installation of state-of-the-art equipment that will process durability and certify fit for use all electricity meters imported into the country.
Agba said the power sector reforms of the present administration have to deal with new methods of boosting generation, transmission and distribution. He said adequate power supply in the country will translate to statistical economic growth and development of the gross domestic product GDP, which is all time high within the last one month.
The Minister said the NEMSA plant and testing facility in Enugu is one of the strategy implementation plans of the federal government to discard mediocrity and lack of competence in handling government business, especially at a time the country has to play a vital and pivotal role in the African economy.
“The benefits that accrue from the planned inauguration of the meter testing plant and facility stem from the fact that substandard meters that are inflammable will be eliminated from circulation, economic dumping of inferior goods by other countries as practiced in the past will no longer be tolerated by the authorities concerned, and above all, the estimated billing system will come with a penalty to whoever served the bill to consumers,” he said.
At the event in Enugu, the Minister said he came to see the level of preparedness of NEMSA to commence operations urgently, in compliance with the federal government directives that 36 million electricity consumers in Nigeria must be metered before the end of quarter two in 2021.
Agba stressed that the federal government’s commitment and concern for the power sector is unwavering, amidst financial constraints, but determined to ensure that the power sector is revamped and resuscitated to give a corresponding growth to the manufacturing and industrial sub-sectors of the economy, comparing the global growth of some sectors in countries with adequate power supply.
NEMSA chief electrical officer of the federation and managing director, Peter Ewosa, declared that all electricity meters imported into the country must be tested at the point of entry to certify their technical fitness before installation.
Ewosa said the meter testing station was established as a quality control mechanism for the power sector to thrive, in line with the mandate of the agency which states clearly that no meter can be deployed or installed and put into use until it has been tested and seen to have met the requirements and technical capability set by the Nigerian government.
“Every country has its technical requirements and standard specifications for any equipment that is publicly or privately put into use, therefore, any meter that does not pass through the agency cannot be installed either at homes, offices and factories,” said Ewosa.
Polytechnics Remain Shut as FG, ASUP’s Hits Wall
ASUP had declared an indefinite strike last Tuesday over alleged poor funding and neglect of the institutions.
However, the union has kicked against the appointment of principal officers for the six new federal polytechnics.
When THISDAY sought for an update on the ongoing strike, the President of ASUP, Mr. Anderson Ezeibe, said the union had not been invited for negotiations by the federal government.
He said since the last meeting they held on Tuesday with the Federal Ministry of Education, which yielded no positive outcome, the union had not been invited for talks again.
“You know we held a meeting with the Federal Ministry of Education last Tuesday but since that time, all we have been hearing was that there will be meeting but we are yet to get an invitation,” he added.
Also, it was gathered from a source at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment that the ministry can only wade into the matter if the Ministry of Education refers the issue to it for conciliation.
However, the dispute has deepened as ASUP has kicked against the appointments of rectors and other principal officers for the six new federal polytechnics, saying it did not meet the required standards.
In a statement by Ezeibe, the union said: “Our union’s attention has been drawn to a recent press statement from the Federal Ministry of Education announcing the appointment of rectors and other principal officers for the six new federal polytechnics situated in Enugu, Oyo, Cross River, Plateau, Borno and Benue states.”
The union stated that the appointments violated provisions of the Federal Polytechnics (Amendment) Act, 2019, adding that five out of the six new rectors were not qualified for the position having fallen short of the requirements captured in Section 8, 2 (a) (i )of the Act.
Ezeibe said the profiles of the appointees showed that five out of the six persons did not fit into the requirements of the law for the appointment of rectors in federal polytechnics.
According to him, these beneficiaries include the appointees for federal polytechnics Ohodo (Enugu), Ugep (Cross River), Shendam (Plateau), Monguno (Borno), and Wannune (Benue) .
“It is regrettable that the government, through officials of the Federal Ministry of Education has become principal violators of the laws governing the operations of Nigerian polytechnics.
“This latest assault is despite the contents of a recent ruling of the National Industrial Court in Abuja where the provisions of the Federal Polytechnics (Amendment) Act, 2019 was affirmed by the court and the Federal Ministry of Education and her officials undertaking to observe the provisions in totality.
“Despite the contents of the judgment of the court in NICN/ABJ/12/2020 involving our union and the Attorney-General of the Federation, Minister for Education and five others in a similar issue, our union had drawn the attention of the Federal Ministry of Education on the need to adhere to the provisions of the law in this appointment process more than a month before this recent naked display of impunity,” he added.
Ezeibe said part of the union’s current engagement with the government was to reverse the trend of administering polytechnics outside extant laws and regulations.
