According to the Founder and spiritual head of Shafaudeen worldwide, Wakajaye, Ibadan, Nigeria, Prof. Sabitu Olagoke, who made this assertion in a chat with Federationews2day, the younger generation no longer look up to the elderly for guidiance.

”In the  book Things fall Apart by late Prof. Chinua Achebe, things fall apart, the centre can no longer hold. That is really what is happening. in Yoruba land, how many parents have  a say on their children ? The Hausas, do they have control on their children ? The Igbos, do they have  control  over their children ?  This is the cause of the problems. Agitations for secession are expected, but we are not ripe for it, because in every region , there is always a disagreement among the tribes  and among the ethnic groups, so we are not ripe enough  for it. The elderly ones should be able to re examine themselves, in a way that they would have control over the younger ones”, Prof. Olagoke concluded.

Nigerian Leaders Seek Medical Attention Abroad To Avoid Been Consumed By Power Play-Cleric

The popular discussion among Nigerians at present, revolve round how the personal interests of those whom they voted into power have surprisingly, taken over the landscape.  Those  voted into power are engaged in a fierce covert battle to take control of power at the centre, while millions of citizens  are contending with hunger and poverty.

In this interview with Federationews2day, the Founder and Spiritual head of  Shafaudeen worldwide, Wakajaiye, Ibadan, Nigeria, Professor Sabitu Olagoke speaks on this and the recent release of the Chiobok girls. Excerpts:

Unfolding events at the seat of power are a source of concern for Nigerians; do you think anything is wrong?

There is a lot of power play in Government Ethnicity is playing  a major role, tribal sentiments are also playing major roles, including religion, which is another factor. And it is unfortunate that the people of Nigeria are not helping matters.  We do not need any sentiments at this particular critical period, what we need is to forget about religion and ethnic background.

Nigeria is an experiment in their hands; they need to take it as a project and they need the peoples’ support, the two of them. So, that is number one, there is a lot of power play in Government, because in Nigeria today, when you have somebody in a position of power, the major problem is that of sycophants, always around them. These sycophants will continue to advise them negatively and wrongly, because the President and Vice President are investments in their hands. So, that is why we are having all these problems.

The man is sick and in Nigeria there is always a myth and mystery around people getting sick, that is why they are not really seeking medical treatment in Nigeria, because they know that there might be another power play, that they may send them to their graves that are why they run abroad.

So0, they are not really doing Nigeria a favour, because they are not been patriotic and sincere: the people who surround them and the people who are at work; this is the result of the situation in Nigeria presently.

Govt. Should Allow Parents to See Their Freed Children

82 Chibok girls have been released by the terrorists, what is your reaction?

Naturally I don’t expect that since they are just coming from the den of the terrorists, they should be released to their parents, because they are already ‘’monsters’’. They must have been traumatized, they must have been cloned into monstrous beings, their psyche needs to be changed, because of the too much delay in rescuing them, and they have already imbibed the culture of the terrorists.

So, their allegiance would be to those people. So, it is a psychological problem, but  if government  is not allowing their parents to see them, that is when Nigerians may raise eyebrows, because the thinking everywhere is that , all these girls may not necessarily be the Chibok girls, however later on they may be having  some  ‘’cosmetic and magical fathers and mothers’’ who will come up.

I will only plead that this issue must not be dragged too far, what they should do, is for Government to allow such parents to visit their children and now come out to accept or deny that those they visited are their children or not their children.

Until such evidence comes from the parents, we cannot insinuate that it is a gimmick or propaganda. Since they are I the custody of the Federal Government, this is far great and better, they will receive the best care and treatment.

The Essence of Revelations : All Should Be Proactive Against The Avoidable-Prof Olagoke

sa8

The Founder and Spiirtual Head of Shafaudeen Worldwide, Prof. Sabitu Olagoke reviews the outgoing 2016 and advises Nigeria’s leaders and followers to be proactive in the new year to avoid unpleasant situations. Excerpts :

A review of the outgoing year is as good as a carry over of the past. Negative resultant effect of our been fanatastyically corrupt. Inflation crept in and paucity of funds is the vogue, as reflected in states not been able to pay salaries of workers.

Prices of essential commodities have gone up, and almost out of the reach of the common man.  Although the Federal Government’s policy of Treasury Single Account(TSA) effectively controlled all transactions involving money, however, the policy has proven not to be perfect, because of its side effects, which has created hardships for consumers and threats to investments.

In fact, foreign currencies like the Dollar became scarce, while some guys became emergency millionaires in the process. The consequent economic hatrdships on the people gave the opposition the oppurtunity to hide their shame and proving to be better than the All Progressives Congress(APC) led Federal Government. Nigerians are in the Theatre. The scenario is of great woory to Nigerians, who have not seized to continue witness8ing the political panorama of the present.

However, the Federal Government has been able to win the battle against the insurgents and have also been successful in rescuing som eof the Chibok girls. This achievement has rekindled the hope of Nigerian that the Niger Delta crisis would soon be over.  Porvided the use of dialogue comes into force.

And that the menace  of the herdsmen in the game of kidnapping and blood letting will soon come to an end, if and only if, the Federal Government could be more strategic, in resolving all the conflicts.

For the year, 2017,  which revolevs on divine messages, on the socio-economic  based statistical data at hand, reveal the following :

  1. Governemnt will be serious in initiating programmes and projects, that impact positively on the people.
  2. Politicians will be involvesd in the war of attrition, in whicvh some will fall by the wayside.
  3. Economic construction will receive boost, relief, to a reasonable extent, in the current recession being experienced.
  4. Education will receive boost , but some aspects of Education shall be neglected.
  5. Security measures will be strong enough to resist any form of insrugency.
  6. Some Houses of God will be functional, while others will be bereft of the presence and favour of God.
  7. Sports shall be visited for better performance.

We need to pray  hatrd against accidents. Most especially on road accidents. Pray and prevent fire outbreak, that may destroy  property of significant magnitude, with possible attendant loss of lives.

The essence of revelations is to proactively prepare, against warnings, to be able to avoid sad and destructive happenings both at government level and at the home front. Reference : Koran Chapter 6,6-7 and Mathew 5,18

Government Behind The Recruitment of People With Doubtful Character Questionable Certificates-Prof. Olagoke

index  A set of X-series Quake $22.00 free shipping

Over time successive governments have had to inject their loyalists into the civil and public service, for interests considered to be self serving. This has without doubt resulted in the low quality of service delivery in Ministries, Departments and Agencies. In this interview with Federationews2day, the Founder and Spiritual Head of Shafaudeen Worldwide, Wakajaye, Ibadan, Nigeria, Professor Sabitu Olagoke speaks on the sack of over 662 workers in Oyo state and how government has been responsible for the presence of presence of people of doubtful character and questionable certificates in government service. Excerpts :

What is your reaction to the laying off of over 662 workers in Oyo state ?

This has nothing to do with labour, it is a fact that productivity has to take precedence in service. People with forged certificates or fake certificates, are not basically qualified to be in service and if they have been able to smuggle themselves into it, we expect that they ought to have made some remedies That been as it is, the attack should not be directed at the passive nature of labour. Kudos should go to the state Government for detecting this category of workers. With regards to labour there is something we need to appreciate and understand, with regards to the present government. Most of them had been in the vanguard of fighting for peoples’ rights, before they got into power, which means on getting to power, they will use all the strategies to tame any reactionary group or any group that they may want to fight for the masses.  And so, Labour’s passive nature might have been due to the expectations of the political class in taming labour. Been as it is this time around, there is no job at hand anywhere, the elements in Labour are expected to be passive, mainly because they themselves, are feed fat, some of them, from the government end. Like all unions we are having, whether that of the NURTW or that of the Trade Union Congress or that of Teachers, it is on record that most of them, on getting to office, after some months or years, they are lready living fat on people’s money. It is easily detected by the fact that their children will never be found in public schools, they are either somewhere in Ghana, or overseas where we have the best schools at the expense of the welfare of the people and the children of the people they say that they are representing. So, the political class and the unions are almost the same as of now,  they fight less for the rights of the people, but fight more for the protection of their jobs and how to live well. So, it is not a surprise, it will continue like this, because they are products of this government. They’ve been together before these people got into power, so it is not a surprise that  it is happening. I am not saying that it is right, because a union that stands by a pledge and oath to defend liberty of the people they represent, now turning to neglect them in their period  of travails, will never enjoy the people’s positive comments and observations. I believe it will change , when government changes.

Normally, one ugly scenario  has been in existence since the period of former Governor, Christopher Adebayo Alao Akala, most especially in this Oyo state and even if you look throughout the federation, state Governors have their squad, for political reasons. And it is part of the strategy, that people with doubtful character and with questionable  certificates were always recruited, mainly for dirty  jobs, but after been used and overspent, they dump them, so we only want a regime that is so conscious of the fact that merit must be the basis upon which any fabric of governance should be laid. And that is the more reason why one feels for these people, who have been weeded out, at a time when unemployment is so high in the country.

APC led Govt. Should Show More Transparency and Accountability-Prof. Olagoke

index

The Federal Government has been  called upon to show more transparency and accountability in governance and must approach the  plan to borrow  about $30 billion from external source with caution.

This call was made by by the Founder and Spiritual head of Shafaudeen worldwide, Wakajaye, Ibadan, Nigeria Prof. Sabitu Olagoke, in a chat with Federationews2day.

”It is high time the APC through its change mantra  showcase transparency  and accountability in governance to be able to enjoy the peoples’ trust and support which any government needs for stability and popularity”.

”Generally, there is nothing wrong in borrowing by any nation, to fund laudable projects. But our situation in Nigeria, we need to call for caution. Two things maybe affecting the borrowing request by President Muhammadu Buhari by the National Assembly, the perceived  stingy approach whereby the lawmakers will not have their palms greased as usual, this might result in a high level of resistance”.

”It is already an exposed revelation that the campaign of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) for the Goodluck Jonathan Presidency was funded with state money, but the All Progressives Congress (APC)has not been able to tell Nigerians and the world the funding strategies of their campaign which some people perceive  to be from some wealthy  individuals , who may now be putting high level of pressures to recoup what they had lent the party”, Prof. Olagoke concluded.

Trump Presidency : Be Optimistic-Prof. Olagoke

”To us as religious people, the opposition is there to checkmate any unnecessary  overture . Let us all, therefore remove the phobia of fear and Monti his alliance with Russia through prayers, to regulate the world  of Science and Technology, from been used as weapon of oppression and destruction. Let us be optimistic that God will be in control and guide Donald Trump”

As the World continues to react to the victory of Donald Trump in the United state Presidential elections, the founder and spiritual head of Shafaudeen worldwide, Wakajaiye, Ibadan, Nigeria, Prof. Sabitu Olagoke , in this interview with Federationews2day, opines that people should be optimistic that God will take control of the situation. Excerpts :

What is your reaction to the victory of Donald Trump in the US Presidential elections ?

The electoral victory of Donald Trump is a surprise, despite some underground work, he must have done to give him the victory. Going by the various vituperation, which all of us believe was a campaign of hate, full of hurting speeches that had threatened the whole world, that has made a lot of people to dislike him the more. The implication is that if we should stand by what he professed,  then Africa will not enjoy his Presidency.

Nigerians, generally, will be the target of governance, while the Muslim world may  need to regroup and with greater tempo, in renewed acts of defense, which the whole world may even see as increased tempo of  terrorism, because of the way and manner they would want to seek redress.

However, with the antecedents of the general influence of America, in any nation, they go, to wage war or to remove their perceived enemies, they always leave a trail of their own perceived ways of life, which had eroded, so much, the core values of cultural heritage of very many nations.

Donald Trump regards Africans as very lazy womanizers, and this is the reason why we are not developed.

However, Donald himself, said that he was out to unite every American,  and to work with everybody, irrespective  of your religion, creed and race. This implies that he may not be as tough and wicked as we have perceived, mainly because leadership and governance are always guided  by reason.

And the Congress will be there  to checkmate any unnecessary overtures. His total disregard  for abortion and gay practice may give him a better image, over the Obama/Clinton union, because Muslims and Christians will give him full support on this.

To us as religious people, the opposition is there to checkmate any unnecessary  overture . Let us all, therefore remove the phobia of fear and Monti his alliance with Russia through prayers, to regulate the world  of Science and Technology, from been used as weapon of oppression and destruction. Let us be optimistic that God will be in control and guide Donald Trump

No Automatic Promotion For Students: We Need To Thank Oyo Govt. But…..-Prof. Olagoke

index

”A situation where only children of the poor or only those who know little about education, are in the schools, any slight change in the parameter of measuring education may automatically attract a negative reaction. There is still a lot to be done, removing automatic promotion is number one, there are still a lot of things to be corrected, like you don’t pay the Teachers and you want them to perform, where lies the factors of motivation ? There is no way that they can be motivated.”

The Oyo state Government recently announced the cancellation of automatic promotion in secondary schools in the state. In the interview with Federationews2day, the Founder and spiritual head of Shafaudeen Worldwide, Wakajaiye, Ibadan, Nigeria, Professor Sabitu Olagoke, says it is a welcome development, although a lot still has to be done to salvage education in the state. Excerpts :

What is your reaction to the new policy of Oyo state Government on promotion in secondary schools in the state ?

In the first place, automatic promotion for students in our schools is suicidal, because the spirit behind assessment and evaluation has defeated. And the consequence of this, has been mass failure all along. In a situation, where Oyo state is meant to be a pace setter in everything, is now found to be at the 30th or 32nd position of the 36 states, is not only embarrassing, but very, very, threatening to the future of our children, because education is an empowerment tool, through which the future leaders are been processed, and once everything is disorganized, it means in the nearest future, products  of Oyo state schools will be incompetent and they won’t be able to compete with their counterparts, not only from Nigeria, but from other nations. It ought to have been done ever since, but the reason behind even allowing the automatic promotion was more of a kind of economic deceit, whereby successive governments have always been shying  away from injecting the necessary funds into having more buildings in schools and engaging in facility update, that is why they have continued to say that, students, whether they pass or not should be promoted. But now that the reality is now at the doorstep of everybody, we need to thank the Oyo state Government for realizing the folly. But we need to give them some strokes of the cane for delaying it for so long, because when a policy is to change, it is through proactive measure, whereby you give a notice, a year or two, and you follow it to the letter. But a situation whereby is is been rolled out through emergency or fire brigade approach, then the counter reaction is what we are witnessing from the students as well as from some parents, who don’t even support what the students have done. Personally and generally it is very, very unwholesome for any student to damage property of schools, whether private of government. But it is easy for these crop of students to do so, mainly because most of them are from homes that are educationally disadvantaged, their parents neither know anything about education nor what it takes to send children to school, so, with that poor background of the parent, what do you expect ?

Unfortunately, the elites in the society and people in government, do not have their children  in these schools, which government has failed to fund. And the reason been that all these schools are been underfunded and they lack the necessary tolls and facilities to encourage knowledge update. A situation where only children of the poor or only those who know little about education, are in the schools, any slight change in the parameter of measuring education may automatically attract a negative reaction. There is still a lot to be done, removing automatic promotion is number one, there are still a lot of things to be corrected, like you don’t pay the Teachers and you want them to perform, where lies the factors of motivation ? There is no way that they can be motivated.

Those days when we were in Primary school, because those Teachers were motivated, they took us as their children and that is why we were able to receive the best from them. Government is having the best of Teachers, because the minimum standard is NCE. So, if well motivated, they are ready to change things for the better. Government must look into that area. And the government, generally, must look into the area of living wageN18,000 can buy nothing as minimum wage, the living wage must be visited, so that Teachers themselves will be able to carry out their daily activities. And the best way to do it is to follow the Kenyan and Ethiopian approach, where they cut the salaries of the top echelon. If it is cut, the present economic recession could be addressed. So, government must be realistic, the way they approach issues. The masses in this country need palliatives, through civil servants, who will now go to the market to buy foodstuff for the money to go round.
