 Money miracles I m ready to face you in court YouTuber s lawyer tells Apostle Suleiman

Inibehe Effiong, lawyer to Israel Balogun – a YouTuber, says he is ready to face the founder of the Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman in court should he proceeds to institute a case.

Effiong dared Suleman in a rejoinder at the weekend in reaction to the cleric’s lawyer’s claims.

The counsel, Samuel Amune, had noted that Balogun was not reported to the police because he expressed his view against Suleman’s money miracles.

“He was reported because of the name calling and we will not stop at this. We will go after anyone who goes to the internet to insult men of God”, Amune threatened.

Effiong condemned his colleague’s “misleading and provocative press statement” issued after the widely condemned arrest and detention of Balogun.

The Special Enquiry Bureau of the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (FCIID) in Abuja questioned and released the YouTuber after public outcry.

Effiong said the Amune accused Balogun of calling Suleman “unprintable names”, an allegation his client, in written statement to the police at FCIID, refuted.

Noting that majority of the said words and expressions were not used, the fiery attorney said Balogun unapologetically stands by the remarks in his video.

“The police admitted that most of the words that the Apostle attributed to my client in his petition were used by another person, who like my client, also spoke out against the so-called angelic miracle alerts and miracle money.”

Effiong accused Amune of trying to divert Nigerians’ attention from whether Suleman “acted truthfully or deceitfully by claiming to command angels to deposit miracle alerts and miracle money in the accounts of worshippers”.

The legal practitioner noted that the answer to the question will determine the merit of the case.

He said given that Suleman is not a lawyer, his team should advise him on the legal implications of initiating an action founded on alleged defamation.

The Apostle, he continued, deserves to know that in the law of defamation, it is trite that a person without character cannot be defamed.

Effiong recalled Suleman claimed that his “spiritual son” entered a toilet in the airport in Germany and supernaturally appeared in an airport toilet in France without visa.

“If the Apostle is convinced that his character has been defamed by my client, in the light of his miracle money claims, he should proceed to court and not dissipate further energy on press statements.”

Two Signs APC Still Not Ready to Govern After Buhari By Farooq Kperogi It’s OK to despise PDP and Atiku Abubakar. I do, too. But the truth is that, of Nigeria’s major political parties, only PDP has shown a readiness to govern at the national level from day one. We may not like how they’ll govern, but they’re at least coherent, earnest, transparent, and predictable. The party held its convention on schedule and submitted the name of its vice presidential candidate to INEC on deadline–with little or no internal rancor. APC, on the other hand, needed to extend the date of its convention by one week. Even so, it almost asked for another extension, and its poorly conducted convention spilled over to the following day. It also couldn’t turn in the name of its vice presidential candidate to INEC on deadline and instead submitted a “placeholder,” a vexing political anomaly Nigeria hadn’t witnessed before, which smaller parties have sadly quickly copied. That bespeaks a disorganized, ramshackle, “fire-brigade,” spur-of-the-moment, not-ready-for-prime-time political party. No party can effectively govern a sick, complex country like Nigeria with such indiscipline, insouciance, and planlessness. Should the party be voted into power in 2023, given its aggravating indiscipline and incompetence in organizing a mere convention and appointment a running mate to its presidential candidate, you can bet that it will repeat Buhari’s template of delaying the appointment of ministers and constituting boards of government agencies by several months. Or worse. We all know how that turned out for Buhari–and Nigeria. Governance never took off, directionlessness took over, a recession hit, and the economy tanked. The country hasn’t recovered up to now. It seems indecision, indiscipline, impunity, and ineptitude are inescapably inserted into APC’s DNA. For example, after its delegates convention, the party is now busy removing the names of people who won primary elections and replacing them with the names of party hon honchos who didn’t participate in the primaries. It is said that indecision is the graveyard of good intentions. APC doesn’t even have good intentions to start with. So, it’s burdened with a double whammy of indecision and no intentions.L
