“Please, make Agboyi link-bridge your priority project” Community head pleads with Sanwo-Olu



The traditional head of Agboyi II, a riverine community in Agboyi Ketu LCDA in Kosofe LGA, Chief Taiwo Lamina has urged the Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to consider the bridge that will link Agboyi town with the rest of Kosofe Local Govt., as part of his priority projects.

The Baale said linking the Island with the rest of the state will not only improve the safety of lives of people living and coming to the town, but will also improve the economy of the area and the state at large.

Chief Lamina made this known while commending the presentation of Life Jackets to the people of Agboyi town by Jextoban Secondary School, Alapere Ketu.

The Life Jackets were presented to the Baale and other leaders of the community for the use of ferry operators, passengers and the 3 riverine communities within Agboyi Town.

Baale also prayed for the management of Jextoban for taking the initiative, stating that the effort is the first time such is happening.

In his words, he said, “This is the first time a school would be presenting life jackets to us in Agboyi Town; although government have been coming around to do that, and just one social club.

“No school or even people who have benefited very well from Agboyi Town have come to do this kind of thing; it shows the safety of people of Agboyi is very germane to the management of the school.” Chief Lamina opined.

Another leader of the community, AbdulJelil Salaudeen, the Osolomade of Agboyi Land, also praised the effort of Jextoban Secondary School, he said it is a very laudable initiative; he also used the event to seek for the assistance of government in providing a general hospital for the people in the area.

The CDC chairman of Agboyi II, Hon. Lateef Adebiyi, also commended the school for using the Children Day Celebration to present life jackets to the community, instead of going to have fun as their mates are doing. He promised the staff and students of the school that the life jackets would be judiciously utilized and distributed.  

While speaking to journalists, the School Principal, Pastor Emmanuel Adegoke, said the School management thought it necessary to join the campaign to emphasize the use of Life Jackets by all waterways users. He urged all passengers to insist on life jackets before embarking on any journey on the water.

In his words, he said, “Jextoban is part of the community, we have a lot of students coming from this riverine community, we felt it is important for us to be part of the campaign on safety on our waterways, we therefore implore all operators and to insist of the usage of this jackets.”

Also present at the event were Director of Jextoban Secondary School, Mr. Dayo Ojo; Head of Admin and PRO, Mr Abayomi Solesi; other staff and students as well as Hon. Ebiesiwa Oluseyi representing Ward F, Agboyi II and III and Kukoyi Sheriff, Ward E, Agboyi I.

Ayadi reveals the spirit responsible for Nigeria’s problems




The General Overseer, Power and Wisdom of God Church, Badagry, Lagos, Pastor Idowu Ayadi says Nigeria is being troubled by the “spirit of cheating”.

This spirit of cheating, he said, was responsible for the majority of the challenges facing the country.

However, he called on Nigerians to play a noble part in complementing the positive efforts of the Federal Government to address the nation’s challenges.

Ayadi made the call at a news briefing on Saturday as part of the activities marking the celebration of Christmas in Badagry.

The cleric tagged his message: “The Spirit Troubling The Nigerian Nation”.

Ayadi said he consecrated himself to pray for Nigeria, and after many days of prayers, it was revealed to him that the source of the nation’s problems was the “Spirit of Cheating”.

According to him, to destroy the spirit of cheating, everyone has to buy into speaking the truth and never sell it.

He said that society should stop worshipping money, while parents should not teach their children how to cheat.

“All clergymen should emphatically teach their followers that life does not consist in the abundance of the things they have, and that act of covetousness is evil.

“On the side of government, there must be check and balance mechanism that will prevent the commission of fraud.

“The three arms of government, the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary, must work together, effectively and efficiently.

“If all these are done, the spirit of cheating will die a natural death, and the lost glory of our country shall be restored.

“Then, we will take our rightful position among the comity of great nations,” he said.

Ayadi said many that were born with the truth had sold the truth, while many who did not have the truth, had refused to buy it.

He said the spirit of cheating in Nigerians had turned all infrastructure that would have promoted prosperity into a sorry state.

The cleric said that all efforts being made by the government to improve our roads and power supply had not yielded the desired results.

“This is because the spirit of cheating is in the people who are frustrating those government’s efforts.
“Infrastructure decay is the major contributor to our economy penury.

“There will be no economic prosperity in any nation where there is inefficient infrastructure to support the production of goods and services,” he said.

Ayadi said that the spirit of cheating made the perpetrators of insecurity to believe that whatever they could not get legally, would be obtained through the cruel and dubious means.

He said: “We should not pass the total blame of insecurity in our country on the current administration and military alone.

“It is the effect of the long term accumulated failures of our past leaders, who the spirit of cheating had deceived to believe that as long as they and their families are comfortable, what happens to others is not their concerns.”

The cleric then urged the government to set aside an hour once in a week to pray for the nation’s security.

He said Nigeria must remain one indivisible country, urging everyone to pray for unity of the country and set aside those things that would militate against it.

Also, Ayadi said that the first wave of the COVID-19 was an art of God to demonstrate to the world “His unquestionable power”.

He said the second wave of the global pandemic had come to be added to the list of diseases that would continue to affect human beings.

The cleric urged Nigerians to observe and keep all safety guidelines, advising government not to embark on any form of economic shutdown again.
