He also said that every gang up against Christianity in Nigeria will not stand.
Speaking yesterday during a Special Service organized by Living Faith Church in Lagos, Oyedepo said: “No one shall succeed to lead Nigeria to war. No group shall succeed to lead our nation to war.

FG offered me Biafra without Rivers, Benue — Nnamdi Kanu
Rejects Biafra with only 5 Igbo states
…Obiano replies IPOB on Anambra election, says election must hold in S’East state

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, yesterday, disclosed that the Federal Government offered him Biafra Republic while in Prison with only the five South East States as the component parts but he rejected it. According to him, he rejected it because that did not constitute the complete Biafra, saying that he told them that he wanted a Biafra with Rivers and Benue States inclusive.
The IPOB leader also claimed that he was offered an oil block and mansion in Dubai aimed at making him to abandon the cause but that he rejected them and insisted on the actualization of Biafra.
Kanu said those things were Greek gifts to buy him over and maintained that he has no price other than to actualize the restoration of Biafra Republic and liberate the Igbo.
“They gave me Biafra in prison with only the five Igbo states; I said no, I want Benue and Rivers”, Kanu said, pointing out that “Biafra is coming, there is nothing to stop it”.
Also yesterday, Anambra Governor, Chief Willie Obiano rubbished the statement of IPOB that the November 18 gubernatorial election in the state would not hold. Speaking at the erosion site in Odume Obosi Layout in Idemili North Local Government , Obiano said IPOB does not have the interest of the people they claim to be fighting for at heart.
This is even as some former state governors raised concerns over agitations by separatist movements in the country.
Knocks Igbo leaders
Kanu, who spoke when leaders of Igbo Civil Society Coalition led by Prof. Obasi Igwe paid him a solidarity visit at his Umuahia home, also gave knocks to Igbo elites for their anti-Biafra activities, saying that they have no interest in the Igbo masses.
He lambasted Igbo elites who he said are bent on scuttling the Biafran agitation, saying they were doing so for their selfish interest and challenged them to show the Igbo masses what they have been able to do for them since their romance with Nigerian Government. He said they would not succeed.
Kanu lamented the deplorable condition of roads in Igbo land and general lack of social amenities and wondered what the elites have been doing in Abuja other to fight for their self interests.
He further dismissed Igbo elites whom he said had thought he could be bought over, saying he has no price tag.
“They can’t buy us with money. If I can turn down oil block, turn down mansions in Dubai, what can they offer us? All the roads in Biafra land are in deplorable condition, yet we have elites who are just interested in their pockets.
“All the roads in Biafra are bad. Apart from Okpara (late Michael Okpara), Mbonu Ojike and Sam Mbakwe, I have not seen any elite in Igbo land. Let them show us what they have done, no roads, no water, nothing. Because they are in Abuja, they are now elites, let them show us what they have done for the people as elites.
“They said everything has price, I told them that Nnamdi Kanu has no price. All of you here know my wife, I sacrificed her for two years; so what can they offer me.
“Self actualization is not war. We are not for war. We are not talking of war but self actualization. Self determination is not war. Any elite that interprets self determination to be war does not understand English.
“Biafra is coming; there is nothing that can stop it, no matter the level of intimidation and blackmail. Some people are running around, saying why must it be Nnamdi Kanu, why not me. I am not an elite, I was born to restore Biafra. We are not interested in any violence, self actualization is not violence”, Kanu said.

Imo State will get $185,451,792.92 from the Paris Club refund.
Using CBN rate= N56,933,700,426.4,
Black market N81,598,708,884.8.
Imo State do not have any reason to complain. There should be no reason for poor quality and uncompleted projects. The pensioners should not be owed. Workers salaries should not be reduced. Unfortunately, those leading us will never account for this and when you question them, you will be tagged "Onye PDP" or "Imo Hater".
This is different from the first refund of 13.021 Billion. This is not part of our monthly allocation. Not part of the bailout fund.
