A group identified as Lagos Solidarity Forum (LSF), has declared unconditional support for Mr. Jimi Agbaje, the 2015 People Democratic Party (PDP), gubernatorial candidate in Lagos state.

In a Press Release signed by its convener, Oladele Martins, he described Agbaje  as the man who has the capacity to heal Lagos State from 19years of political plague and kwashiorkor to the much-desired economic freedom.

“Our emotions have known no bounds since his declaration to seek election as the Lagos State Governor in 2019.”

“Mr. Jimi Agbaje’s in-depth understanding of class issues in Lagos State, as well as his well-known dogged resistance to godfatherism, has drawn him to the voiceless and downtrodden of the state. We believe that he has the sincerity of purpose to free Lagos State from political marauders feasting on its resources for their benefits and cronies alike. We have utmost belief in Mr. Agbaje to revive the hopes of Lagosians health system and services, waste management, education, power, water, roads, drainage, and taxation. We all know that Lagos is vastly blessed and full of opportunities that can better the lives of indigenes and its residents at large.”

“Also, we recognize the boundless leadership rectitude displayed by our father, Chief Bode George, who has been relentless at calling the attention of Nigerians to the mindless corruption and milking of Lagos State resources by one man and his stooges since 1999. We join hands with him and people of good conscience to say enough is enough!”

Further, Martins said “with the recent unfolding political events in Lagos State, the All Progressive Party, APC has exposed itself as a party built on fraud, god-fatherism, corruption and total disregard for internal democracy. The Lagos Solidarity Forum is politically ready to mobilize all active political structures within the state that are committed to collaborate and uproot the entrenched reactionary leadership in Lagos State.”

“We call on all visionaries and people of good conscience in the state to rally round and help refocus our Lagos to the path of economic empowerment and development that will benefit all and sundry by supporting Mr.Agbaje in the onerous task of becoming the next Governor of Lagos State by all means legally necessary.”

Wonders will never cease or how do you explain a church canceling the wedding of its members for the most unrealistic reason.

According to a report, Bolingo Israel and Okpokpolom Jemima members of Deeper Life Church allegedly got his wedding suspended for eating from the same plate.

The incident said to have happened a week before the couple’s wedding has been generating reaction on social media.

A Twitter user identified as @realoladele shared details of the incident. According to him, the couple were set to wed on Saturday, June 8 and held their traditional wedding on Friday, June 7.

According to him, during the course of the traditional wedding, they got a text saying that their wedding set to hold the next day had been suspended

Furthermore, the couple was placed on ‘discipline’ by the pastor. The incident is said to have occurred at Deeper Life Church in Bayelsa and all the arrangements made by the couple for the wedding day got wasted.

Report has it that the wedding was canceled by the pastor because the couple played the role of man and wife by eating from the same plate despite the fact that they were yet to be married.

When the family of the couple reached out to the pastor, he refused on the basis that the couple ate from the same plate a week before they were joined in holy matrimony and for that reason have to be punished.

Reacting to the development, the church explained that contrary to reports, the couple had actually engaged in immoral acts after sleeping in the same bed and it amounted to sin. The church further explained that after feeling guilty and reporting themselves to their respective pastors, the couple was placed on disciplinary action by the state overseer.

After the church felt they had repented, the wedding was slated to hold again but was eventually suspended the second time after they discovered the couple had engaged in ‘acts contrary to the laid down procedure by the marriage committee of the church’. Concluding the statement, the church explained that it stands for holiness and members have been admonished to abstain from evil. The couple was also described to have behaved unseemingly and were in a haste to enjoy the benefits of married couples.

Read the statement below:

“The church has a Marriage Committee that supervises marriage right from knowing the will of God, to obtaining parents’ consent, marriage registration to church wedding. When the intending couples were told to go to Brass Region in Bayelsa state to obtain the man’s parents’ consent, they spent several days together before coming back to Yenagoa. They slept on the same bed and engaged in moral acts which amounted to sin and against the marriage process of the Church. They felt what they had done was bad and reported themselves to their pastors. They were subsequently placed on discipline by the State Overseer. After some period, reporting that they have repented, the courtship was allowed to commence again.

As preparation for wedding was going on, it was discovered that they again engaged in acts contrary to the laid down procedure by the marriage committee of the church. This is after they had been disciplined earlier and warned not to engage in acts that will impact negatively on their proposed marriage. When the Marriage Committee put a direct question to them based on the latest development, the man accepted their error. It is important to note here, that the church stands on holiness and members have been consistently admonished to “abstain from all appearance of evil. It is not also true that the parents pleaded with the pastor to wed them on the 8th June, 2019. The summary is that they behaved themselves unseemingly, and were in haste to enjoy the benefits the church and God allow only married couples to enjoy.”

The appointment comes following the sack of Elizabeth Asabe Karatu the state’s former acting Chief Judge.
