Otunba Gbenga Daniels’ Ambition tears Gov. Dapo Abiodun and Ogun APC apart

The duo of former governor Otunba Gbenga Daniel known as OGD and incumbent governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun are close friends of decades ago. During the tenure of former Governor Ibikunle Amosun when he wanted to install a successor against the mandate of Dapo Abiodun, despite OGD being in the opposition, he worked assiduously for the emergence of his friends as Governor of Ogun state. It was a very big political fight as different factions within and outside the All Progressive Congress APC teamed up to truncated the emergence of Gov. Amosun’s stooge; Hon. Akinlade Adekunle, candidate of Allied Peoples Movement APM.

 

After the pools, we gathered that; OGD was rewarded for his commitment to using his resources to ensure Governor Dapo emerged Governor. “He was given slots for his people for political appointment and also his Conference hotel that was under locked key during the 8 years tenure of Senator Amosun was handed over to him for business.” These among other things we gathered that Daniel benefitted from the Dapo Abiodun administration which led him to dump the opposition Peoples Democratic Party PDP to the ruling APC. After Daniel decamped, the APC family applauded his movement. They rejoiced and jubilated that the PDP lost a big fish like Daniel leaving Hon. Ladi Adebutu as the only opposition in Ogun.

 

According to sources, Daniel’s defection to the APC was borne out of his selfish desire to follow Amosun’s footstep by getting the APC senatorial ticket for Ogun East. A senatorial district where Gov. Dapo Abiodun hails from. According to political pundit, Gbenga Daniel is from Sagamu and Governor Dapo is from Iperu under the same Remo Federal constituency. “Since the history of Ogun East, all senator representing the district are from Ijebu-Igbo and Ijebu-ode because they have block votes from that district that no guber candidate will joke with.”

 

We also gathered that OGD’s senatorial ambition is currently tearing the party apart as members of APC claimed that a decampee cannot come from PDP to fight for their ticket. “Ogun East APC elders are not happy with the recent development. Daniel cannot come and call the shot for us in APC. We have people who have suffered for the party just to clinch the ticket to represent the district at the Senate but the party told them to wait for their turn. Now Daniel is coming to cause division in the party. We will resist him at all cost.” A party chieftain disclosed.

 

Currently, Governor Dapo Abiodun is in a tight corner as he does not want to lose anybody because of his second-term ambition. Senator Amosun will be returning for Ogun central, Senator Solomon Olamilekan Adeola Yayi would be coming to battle Senator Tolu Odebiyi for the Ogun West ticket and Senator Lekan Mustapha would also want to retain his seat in the red chambers. Dapo Abiodun from Remo needs votes from the Ijebu voters and his own people in Remo will definitely vote for him which is where Daniel is from. “With the situation of things; Governor Dapo will be looking to sacrifice OGD’s Senatorial Ambition to get the block vote from the Ijebu’s for his reelection. Senator Yayi’s structure will be ready to work again for his re-election as he will also work for Yayi to get the Ogun West ticket.” A close source told CITYSPY.

 

Governor Dapo as the leader of the party in the state is doing everything possible to make sure Gbenga Daniel shelves his ambition as he has promised to further include him in his government during his second tenure. “With Governor Dapo’s body language, he is diplomatically conveying a message to Daniel to forgo his ambition. A Governor and Senator cannot emerge from the same constituency. It’s good to share everything equal for an all-inclusive government so votes from the district will not be divided because of clashed interests. Governor Dapo is currently reconciling with aggrieved members so as to make his reelection process smooth.”

 

CITYSPY gathered that; consultation is ongoing for Otunba Gbenga Daniel on his senatorial ambition. With stiff opposition from APC chieftains, it seems OGD might likely defect back to the PDP or another party if he wants his ambition to see the light of the day as Ogun APC is not ready to give him the ticket or else votes from the district will be shared which is not a welcoming idea for Governor Dapo Abiodun. As the election draws nearer, more political intrigues will trail the Ogun state political landscape anytime soon.

This Year, Fish will Consumed Fish, Rivers Will Swallow Rivers -Prophet Odedoyin Olawumi Ezekiel Revealed

Published

on

By

Prophet Odedoyin Olawumi Ezekiel, the general overseer of Christ For All Souls Ministry was amongst the first set of clerics to release new year prophecies for Nigeria and the world on Saturday 1st of January, 2022.

The cleric, in separate announcements, made the prophecies for Nigeria known during the church annual celebration that took place in Osogbo.

Prophet Odedoyin’s prophecies were grouped into five categories: Nigeria, world, Africa, personal and the Christians.

He revealed that he foresees that the world will experience turbulence and God’s Vengeance will be upon the leaders of the world.

In his words, he said “God says, I should tell the world that he never breaks promises, and this year, he has raised some people from around the world to uphold his judgment because this year will be a year of vengeance for those who have trampled on innocent people’s rights. He promised to avenge from the leaders to the followers”

“God revealed to me that there will be bloodshed, Kidnapping and killing of many people this year. There will be many laws contrary to God’s will to work against my people and there will be starvation. Many nations’ economies will go into recession. Helps that did not come from God will surface and Satan will bring out a plate for people to eat and drink from.”

“And for them to know that he remains God many diseases will spring up and some of the ones that are on ground already will continue to kill people. God also said he will render some people in authority powerless and many of them will be disgraceful while this year will be full of turbulence in the world. And for those that belong to God in the world,  that he has washed in his blood, he promised to send them from one nation to another to preach the gospel. Many warriors and powerful ones will fall this year, only those that do God’s will, will not fall this year.”

“God said he will bring among those that are antagonists of his gospel to preach his Gospel. The World will be deceived through the treasure of the world. And many strange powers will come from the devil, warriors of this generation be prepared. God said he will elevate, uphold and allow Satan to enter into some churches that you called church of God but they are not.”

When he was asked about the African continent, he said “God said he will pass through the land of Africa and he will divulge many secrets. He will kill on one side and elevate on the other side. those that pretend they are serving God but they are not will be exposed”

“Many nations will kick against their leaders in Africa. There will be a true change in Africa and things will be going accordingly. Some people will live in regret and any council that tries to rise without my knowledge will be put to shame and disgraced.”

On what God is saying about Nigeria, the man of God said, the country should pray as God said he will continue to shake the country, starting from the government, the political stalwart and those that are working against his will.

In his words, prophet Odedoyin said ” God said he will continue to shake this country. He will start from the government house. His sword will move from there to the National Assembly. He said he will uphold his law and he will punish those that go against it as political leaders will drink each others blood”

“He said any government that refuses to acknowledge him, even if they work they will have nothing to show for it. The government of this nation doesn’t know God and they are not following God’s Will and if they continue that way God said he will punish them but if they repent he will accept them and deliver them.”

“He also said, many of them that put themselves in a leading position will be demoted and some of them will be kidnapped while many of them will be cut short”

On security, the prophet said “This year security will be worse than before even the ones in authority will not be safe and many will be locked up illegally.”

“God said if they run to me I will turn things around for good because among the politicians he has seen some children of light and he will bring them out.”

“We should pray because this year fish will eat fish, rivers will swallow rivers, politicians will deal with one another deceitfully.”

And as for the christians, “God said, I should tell those that belong to him, that he remains their God. And he assured them of his protection and he opened many sources for them this year.”
“He said I should tell his people that there will be signs and wonders this year and he will empower them. There will be joy in their premises, and this year shall be a year of harvest for those who work with him”

“He also said, he is the vine with many fruits and he will bring forth sweetness from one side and bitterness on the other side for people who refuse to do his will. Some will be cast away and only those that cling unto me will receive many  from me.” He concluded.

Meanwhile, according to the Prophet Odedoyin, God gave his watchword saying “This  is the watchword that will be your weapon for this year, it is a year that you will work for God and God will prosper your way, said the Lord. And the watchword is taken from the holy book of Isaiah 60:1 which says, “Arise, shine, for you light has come and  the glory of God is risen upon you”
