Posted on at -
Popular Enugu-based prophet, has released his 2017 prophesies where he predicted that prominent pro-Biafra activist would be freed before the end of 2017.

Prophet Nwoko
While speaking with journalists in Enugu, a popular prophet, Anthony Nwoko, who released his 2017 prophesies, has predicted that all the detained pro-Biafra activists would be freed before the end of 2017.
 The influential cleric who urged pro-Biafra activist, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to be patient as his freedom was close, added that President Buhari would not die in 2017 but that God was angry with him.
He said; “This is a return of the Igbo glory; God will lift the Igbo nation; It is a year all the detained pro-Biafra agitators will be released.

“Enugu will be the City to watch as God’s glory will rise from there and extend to all other States in Igboland.

“I will lead the spiritual cleansing because there is hatred on Ndigbo, jealousy because of their glory. The wicked have planted evil in Igbo land but this is the time to uproot it.

“The enemies have done so much to make sure that Nbdigbo do not progress, that they will hate themselves.

“I prophesy that this is a year of liberation; a year of Biafra struggle; let Igbos wake up. The spirit is appealing to Nnamdi Kanu and others suffering in detention to be patient. God will bring all of them out this year.

“Ndigbo should take up former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s advice seriously. They should heed his advice and start developing this place. The world is waiting for Ndigbo.”
On President Buhari, he said: “Buhari cannot change Nigeria. Let my people go and there will be peace in Nigeria. Buhari will not die; he will live to see the glory of God in Igbo land; those saying Buhari will die are not speaking the mind of God.

“There is a lot of killing of innocent people in Igbo land. God is not happy with Buhari at all; God is not happy with the government of APC. Let Buhari pray and dream of what God thinks about Nigeria and what He expects him to do. You cannot fight God and expect to have peace.”

Horror! Bird Flu Spreads to 26 States, 3.5 Million Birds Now Affected - FG Makes Stunning Revelation

Posted on at -
The horrible and highly dreaded virus, bird flu, has infiltrated Nigerian again and is spreading really fast through states.

The Federal Government has revealed that a new strain of Avian Influenza virus, popularly known as bird flu, has entered Nigeria and spread to 26 states and the Federal Capital Territory, with over 3.5 million birds affected, The Punch reports.
According to the government, in a bid to prevent the entry of the disease into their respective countries, Nigeria’s neighbours have proposed a ban on poultry and poultry products from Nigeria.
The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh, disclosed this in Abuja for Tuesday at a consultative meeting with commissioners for agriculture/livestock, states directors of veterinary services and major stakeholders in the poultry industry.
Ogbeh explained that the first outbreak of bird flu in Nigeria was reported in 2006 and spanned through 2008, but was controlled and eradicated through concerted efforts facilitated by the availability of resources from a World Bank-sponsored project and support from the country’s development partners.
The minister said, “Almost a decade later, precisely in December 2014, the disease reoccurred in a commercial poultry farm and a live bird market in Kano and Lagos states, respectively. The current status of the disease in the country is quite alarming; it has now affected 26 states and the FCT, with over 3.5 million birds culled so far.

“Recently, a new strain of the bird flu virus (H5N8) was reported in Kano. The new strain is believed to be very pathogenic and more devastating to poultry species and, therefore, it may further add to the burden of the H5N1 strain that is currently circulating in the country.

“The disease is transboundary in nature and also trade-limiting; some of our neighbouring countries have proposed to ban poultry and poultry products from Nigeria. This may undesirably lead to an egg glut in the country.”
Ogbeh stated that there were already huge and unacceptable losses in the poultry industry and the nation as a whole, and urged the agriculture commissioners of the various states to retrace their steps in order to provide safe food for Nigerians as well as ensure national self-sufficiency in food production.
He noted that aside from paucity of funds, other challenges that led to the outbreak of the disease included lack of compliance with on-farm quarantine measures and movement restriction; violation of biosafety measures leading to rapid spread of the disease; and clustering of poultry farmers with limited adherence to hygienic measures.
Others, according to the minister, are reluctance of poultry farmers to register with the state directors of veterinary services for easy monitoring and regulation; and unregulated activities of egg and manure merchants.
To help address the challenges, Ogbeh said the Federal Government had provided disease containment materials, reviewed the national emergency preparedness plan on Avian Influenza, enhanced the laboratory diagnostics capacity at the National Veterinary Research Institute in Plateau State, and created awareness and advocacy on the disease.
He stated that other measures put in place to address the situation were the allocation of quality grains to the Poultry Farmers Association to support its members across the country, and the payment of N707.67m to 276 farmers as compensation.
“The Federal Government is determined to continue to work with state governments, PAN and other stakeholders in the poultry industry to come up with sustainable measures to prevent, control and eradicate this disease from our country within the shortest time possible. This is the major reason for our meeting here today,” Ogbeh said.
Participants at the meeting urged the Federal Government to complete the payment of compensation to farmers who lost millions of naira as a result of the previous outbreak of bird flu in Nigeria.
This, they said, would encourage the farmers to make public any further development of bird flu in their respective areas before the disease would spread to other locations.
Responding, Ogbeh said, “We acknowledge our inability to act promptly in the past to be ahead of the disease and to complete payment of compensation to affected farmers. This was due to constraint of funds as a result of the prevailing economic downturn.”

“But I want to assure you that we are looking for money and we will pay the compensation.”

Gambia: President Yahya Jammeh Takes Major Step to Concede to Adama Barrow...See Details

Posted on at -
The President of Gambia may have finally come to his senses as he is now looking for a way to reconcile with the President-elect.

President Yahya Jammeh
Gambia’s outgoing President Yahya Jammeh on Wednesday appointed a mediator to facilitate meetings between himself and president-elect Adama Barrow, News Agency of Nigeria reports.
Jammeh who is in the middle of a heated controversy for his refusal to accept the Dec. 1 presidential polls, which saw him, lose power after over two decades of being in power, is now looking for a peaceful way to reconcile with Barrow.
West African bloc, Economic Community of West African States has been heaping pressure on Jammeh to do the obvious and respect the constitution of his country or face military action, although top mediators from ECOWAS have agreed to use peaceful means to convince him before the due date of the new president's inauguration.
Barrow, a former real estate agent, who was little known before he announced his candidacy, is scheduled to take office on Jan. 19.
The ruling party’s secretary general will mediate between Jammeh’s supporters and the opposition to “resolve any mistrust and issues,’’ Jammeh said in a televised address to the nation early Wednesday.
He refuses to accept the election result because it was “full of arithmetic errors and anomalies, it also could not be credibly explained,’’ the outgoing president added.
Jammeh ordered the justice minister and national assembly to draft a general amnesty bill, while issuing an executive order not to arrest or prosecute citizens for “acts or omissions’’ committed during the pre and post electoral period, between Nov. 1 and Jan. 31.
The announcement comes a day after the Supreme Court postponed hearing a court petition filed by Jammeh to challenge the election results. The case was adjourned to Monday, since only one of a required minimum of five judges was present, the court’s registrar said.
Several West African heads of state meanwhile postponed a meeting with Jammeh aimed at helping to resolve the political crisis from Wednesday to Friday.
