The national secretariat of Nigeria Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ) has appealed to security agencies in Oyo State to, without wasting more time, arrest and prosecute some impostors who are parading themselves as the factional executive of the union in the state.

The association made this disclosure via a statement signed by the National Secretary of the union, Comrade Helen Udofia.

Our correspondent recalls that the National Secretariat of the union had last month inaugurated NAWOJ executive which had Jadesola Ajibola as Chairperson.

It was however gathered that some aggrieved members of the union on the same day inaugurated their own executive.

The development was condemned by the national body of the union. The union explained that it can only recognise only one executive in the state.

The national secretariat of the union has however enjoined security agencies to treat those who went ahead to inaugurate their own executive as impersonators.

The union, while affirming its stand, said that it only recognises executives led by Ajibola.

Udofia in the letter made available to DAILY POST on Tuesday said that the association issued the statement in order to clear the air on the matter to avoid a situation where innocent members of the public would be misinformed.

She maintained that NAWOJ national secretariat has distanced itself from the charade of Omolola Alamu, Shade Oduola, Ramat Alade, Temilola Ankarah, Temitope Oyewole and Kehinde Igbari, who are parading themselves as leaders of NAWOJ in the state.

She added that the impostors failed to meet the constitutional requirements to contest in the recent election and can therefore not be allowed to use the backdoor to foist themselves on the association.

“NAWOJ is equally constrained to take judicial notice of the activities of the impostors as well as using this medium to inform all security agencies in Oyo State to take notice and treat Omolola Alamu and her co-travellers as well as their associates within and outside the association as impersonators.

“For emphasis, NAWOJ national secretariat wishes to state very clearly that it has distanced itself from the charade of Omolola Alamu, Shade Oduola, Ramat Alade, Temilola Ankarah, Temitope Oyewole and Kehinde Igbari, parading themselves as leaders of NAWOJ in Oyo State as they clearly failed to meet the constitutional requirements to contest in the recent election and can therefore not be allowed to use the backdoor to foist themselves on the association.

“It is therefore unacceptable to allow a group of people constitute themselves into brigandage and lawlessness by falsely laying claims through the backdoor to what they did not achieve through laid down procedures and rules,” she said.

“NAWOJ National secretariat only recognises the leadership of the association in Oyo state led by Jadesola Ajibola that was duly elected and swore-in by officials assigned by national leadership and urged members of the public to relate and transact business with her and members of her executive”.

Ahead of the 2023 presidential elections, both Christian and Muslim clerics on Friday claimed the Holy Spirit has anointed the Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.

The clerics made this known in Abuja at the intercession prayer and declaration of support by 1,000 Inter-denominational and Inter-religious clergymen for Bello to emerge as Nigeria’s next President

They added that they owe Bello a duty to see that he actualises his ambition because it would be for the betterment of Nigeria.

Although, the organisers claimed the clerics at the intercession prayer were 1,000, however, the clerics in attendance were not up to 100.

In his remarks, Bishop Prince Madaki said it has been prophesied and by the grace of God, through prayerful intercessions, that the Kogi Governor is the anointed son who will lead Nigeria from May 2023 to great battles.

He noted that the clerics vouched for Bello as a man of peace and one who will take the country to greater heights.

He said, “And in the eyes of men and as revealed by the Holy Spirit, we have heard a voice from the wilderness, chanting loudly and calling on the underrated David, the son of Jesse in the person of His Excellency, Gov. Yahaya Adoza Bello to take over the throne of his forebears as Nigeria’s next President in 2023”

Madaki added: “And in accordance with the directive of the Holy Spirit, we have the rare privilege and honour to re-baptise him as we are gathered now.

“Therefore on this divine mission and today, Gov. Bello will be known and called Yahaya Adoza “David” Bello henceforth. It has been prophesied and by the grace of God, through these prayerful intercessions, Yahaya Adoza David Bello is the anointed son who will lead Nigeria from May 2023 to great battles and God will give him victory over all adversaries. ”

On his part, Sheik Mahmoud Abubakar said the presidential hopeful has all the requirements as enlisted in the Holy Book, hence, the reason why they were united in one voice in prayers for him.

He pointed out that it was that time of the year when all sorts of promises are made by politicians in the quest to gain favours from the electorate.

”This is the time politicians would come with empty promises to deceive the people and once they get what they want, they leave the people in misery, he said.

“As a people united in faith, we are gathered here to pray for that good man from Kogi State who has indicated interest to rule Nigeria in 2023. That good man from Kogi State who has the fear of Allah in him. That man who Allah SWT blessed us with in times of need.

“I can tell you all that our convergence here is not for the cameras, but an avenue to render prayers for one of the most patriotic Nigerians in the person of Governor Yahaya Bello, who has signified interest to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.”

Some activists and labour leaders have warned that any attempt to increase the price of petrol in the country will compound the suffering of Nigerians.

The Activists gave the warning on Thursday during a protest against the planned increase of petrol price in Ibadan, the Oyo State.

The federal government had recently announced it will not be increasing the price of petrol or removing fuel subsidy until the next 18 months.

But, the labour leaders and activists who spoke during a protest said the federal government only postponed the evil day.

Secretary of the joint Action Front (JAF) in Oyo State, Abiodun Bamigboye, urged Nigerians to rise against any attempt to increase the price of fuel.

He maintained that any attempt to increase the price of fuel would further compound the sufferings of Nigerians.

“We are here to call on the leadership of the NLC, Trade Union Congress and the entire Nigerians that despite the fact that the federal government has postponed the increment of price of petroleum, they should rise up and kick against the increment of price of petroleum.

“Nigerians should not go to sleep because of ...ponement. The federal government is not saying that it will not increase the price. It said that it will not increase it now but will do it later.

“But, we feel that whether now or later, such a decision to increase the price of petroleum will compound the suffering of Nigerians.

“Any attempt to hike the price of petroleum now will further compound the suffering of Nigerians. The cost of living at this material time will be higher.

Convener of All Workers Convergence (AWC), Comrade Andrew Emelieze, advised Nigerians to resist any move to increase the price of petrol.

“We want Nigerians to resist any attempt to increase the price of petrol”
