If not for the timely intervention of Mali forces, the current president, Colonel Assimi Goita would have been ousted yesterday as claimed by military sources in the country.


It was reported that security forces had thwarted a countercoup attempt that it said was supported by an unnamed Western government.


“These soldiers were supported by a Western state,” said government spokesperson Colonel Abdoulaye Maiga on state television.


This coup, if it was successful would have been the third military coup the country have experienced in the last three years.


Popular Nigerian prophet, Primate Elijah Ayodele who is the leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church had prophesied these happenings long before they occurred.


It would be recalled that before the military coup that saw Colonel Assimi Goita ceasing power, Primate Ayodele warned about it and when it came to pass, people marveled at how the man of God was able to see it coming despite the fact that there was pointer to a coup at that time.


Similarly, when Goita got power, Primate Ayodele warned him to be careful of his movement as he foresees an attempt on his life. Few months after this prophecy, the president was attacked with a knife while he was praying in the mosque, fulfilling Primate Ayodele’s prophecy.


Also, Primate Ayodele released a prophecy about Mali again and said he foresees an attempt to destabilize the government and an attack


These were his words


“The new Mali president will be working under serious pressure just for him not to extend his tenure, He will want to do better but let them pray against troubles, turmoil and attack. The president must watch his movement because rebels will want to destabilize his government. The junta of the military will need to call for the support of the international community,’’ (


As he said it, an attack and an attempt to destabilize the present government was foiled yesterday by the military forces, fulfilling Primate Ayodele’s prophecy.









Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has appealed to leaders and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to conduct themselves in a peaceful manner during the forthcoming primary elections and congresses of the party in the State.


He also appealed to them to abide by the tenets of the ruling party during the primary elections, as well as the elections of local government, state and national delegates. 


Governor Sanwo-Olu made the statement during the Lagos APC Stakeholders’ meeting held at the party’s secretariat in Acme Road, Ogba on Tuesday.


He said it is the responsibility of party members to live, work and dream in the tenets of the party as APC conducts its congresses across the state on Wednesday and therefore urged the party’s faithful to conduct themselves in an orderly manner and comply with the party’s guidelines.


In his address, the leader of the Governance Advisory Council (GAC), the apex leadership body of Lagos APC, Prince Tajudeen Olusi, charged all the party members to work hard for the ruling party to retain Lagos during next year's elections.


He also advised the party members to ensure that people with integrity are elected during APC congresses and primaries, adding that they must discourage saboteurs from being elected as delegates and party candidates during the APC primaries and 2023 polls respectively. 


Also speaking, the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, appealed to APC members to support, work and abide by any decision made to ensure the party's success in order for it to continue to reign.


He appealed to the party members to sacrifice where necessary for the common interest and the progress of the ruling party, especially in the interest of the APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, who is running for the 2023 presidency.


Speaking earlier, Lagos State APC Chairman, Pastor Cornelius Ojelabi, said the business of forthcoming congress and primary elections of the party should not be seen as a do or die affair by the delegates.


He said they should see both the congress and the primaries as a contest.


Pastor Ojelabi while imploring party members to use internal mechanism to resolve conflicts said no local government chairman or party chairman at the council level had a right to write a letter to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for redress on any issue without first exploring the internal conflict resolution of the party.


Lagos APC chairman also encouraged party leaders and members to show commitment and passion toward the ongoing continuous voters' registration by encouraging people to register for their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) before the June 30 deadline.


The stakeholder's meeting was attended by Governor Sanwo-Olu, his deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat; GAC members, Lagos APC executives, members of the Lagos State Executive Council, members of the National Assembly and Lagos State House of Assembly, Conference 57 and party’s chairmen from 20 local governments and state’s technical support committee, among others.

Written by

This has given lots of banks a headache. Access Bank really cares about its customers. This crusade brought about this campaign, Twice Bitten, But not today, Block your account quickly.


It is to also alert Access Bank customers on what to do whenever they are in this situation, perhaps, your account has been hacked. Maybe you lost your ATM. Maybe the customer’s ATM was stolen etc.


Twice Bitten? But not today, Block Your Account quickly campaigns guides you on what to do abruptly.


However, this crusade was unveiled three days ago. And it has quickly gained ground in the South West of Nigeria. It is also spreading to the North West of Nigeria, findings. revealed.


Access Bank is working tirelessly to curb hacking of its customers’ accounts online as far as the Twice Bitten campaign is concerned.


However, Access Bank in its bid to enhance financial inclusion has noted its intentions to significantly increase its customer base and deepen the wallet share of the banking population riding on its agency banking platform.


Access Bank agency banking ‘Access Closa’ recently hit a milestone of having 100,000 agents currently spread across Nigeria as the bank further plans to increase its footprint by having a minimum of 50 agents in each of the 774 LGAs across the country.


The Group Head, Agency Banking, Access Bank Plc, Chizoba Iheme, in a chat with journalists noted that due to the limited number of financial institutions, especially in rural areas, Access Closa is Access Bank’s strongest retail channel used in providing banking services to a large population of unserved and underserved Nigerians.


She said: “Our plan is to bank one in two Nigerians as this will see us increase our customer base and deepen our wallet share of the banking population.”


“Going by the high youth and adult population, the resources of Nigeria’s financial institutions are being overstretched in providing physical and human resources and were unable to cope with gaps that existed in meeting banking needs of Nigerians hence the need for Agency Banking as envisaged by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) in 2013.”


“Therefore, Agency Banking helps financial institutions decongest crowded branches by providing a matching and more often convenient channel for their customers. In instances where reaching customers in rural areas is often highly expensive for financial institutions because transaction numbers and volumes do not cover the cost of a branch, agency banking helps in serving them.”

As part of our onboarding process, the bank’s agents are required to execute a service agreement that stipulates the roles and responsibilities of each party.


Also, agents are trained at the point of activation on Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Terrorism Financing. This training also takes place every year to reiterate the dangers and consequences associated with fraudulent actions. Besides, the bank has set a maximum daily limit on the amount and frequency of transactions that can be performed by an agent. Lastly, a quarterly risk profiling exercise is carried out on all agents for effective management,” Iheme added.


Access Bank is the leading retail bank in Nigeria with over 600 branches and more than 40 million customers. The bank offers products and services tailored to suit the lifestyle of every Nigerian irrespective of age and demographic.

“I appeal to you (delegates) to think about your children and grandchildren. Think of what kind of Nigeria you want to bequeath to them, rather than the money the money bags might give you", he said.

He noted that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is most fit for the job, adding that he has never failed in his given mandates.

"I have known Professor Yemi Osinbajo for over 30 years now and I can boldly say he is the most prepared among all candidates. He is intelligent, diligent, and bold. He has a presence of mind and he knows how to build his network and teams", he opined.

Vingir stated further that for Nigeria to improve as a nation, Nigerians need VP Osinbajo, whom he described as a democrat, that would put in place peaceful policies that will create more jobs.

"VP Osinbajo is a democrat, who believes in the power of the state, right of Nigerians, rule of law-we have seen him act in that manner many times. So it is only right for Nigeria to give him a chance to lead us" he said.

Major-General Akem-Vingir, a former Provost Marshal of the Nigerian Army,  appealed to delegates across the nation to consider Vice President Osinbajo, who is a multi-ethnic sensitive man, as their preferred candidate during the party primaries.

He added that the Vice President's intellectual history matches the political tides in  the country, noting that he had brought his dynamism to bear during his short stay as the Ag. President of Nigeria.

"VP Osinbajo understands Nigeria, no doubt. He understands the socio-economic dynamics of the nation and the problem that is precipitating insecurity. He will definitely tackle insecurity with a new strategy that will stop the menace", Vingir said.
