Thunderstorm kills seven cows in Osun village


About seven cows belonging to a Fulani herder, Alhaji Abdullahi, in Elepo Village, Ifon, Osun State were in the early hours of Tuesday struck dead by thunderstorm.


The incident which reportedly occurred during an early morning rain, threw the village into panic.

The cows were said to have been tethered in a place in the village, when a loud deafening noise was heard around where the animals were kept.

Seven of them were found dead after the incident, though there were more cows on tether at the spot that were not affected.

A resident of Ifon, Alao Saheed, while commenting, said it was the first time such an incident would occur in the town.


He called on relevant government agencies to move to the scene of the incident and evacuate the dead animals to prevent the outbreak of an epidemic.

Alhaji Sulaimon Oloruntoyin, Seriki Fulani in Osun State, confirmed the incident to newsmen in a chat.

Oloruntoyin told newsmen that the cows belongs to Alhaji Abdullahi, son of Seriki Fulani of Ifon Orolu.

Seriki added, “I was told that the cows belong to Alhaji Abdullahi, son of Seriki Fulani of Ifon. I was told the incident happened before daybreak during rainfall that occurred in the early hours of today.

“Those animals that died were not the only ones at the spot where the thunder truck them. They belong to Alhaji Abdullahi, son of Seriki Fulani of Ifon Orolu. I will give you details later please. Seven cows died in the village.”

DIAMOND STANDARD—WHY BUY A RING WHEN YOU CAN BUY TOKENS?

Q&A with Douglas Borthwick


Feel pressure to propose this Holiday? Instead, stuff your loved one’s stocking with diamond coins that have the potential to grow as much as your love!


Word on Wall Street is that INX Limited will unveil the world’s first diamond commodity with the Diamond Standard Coin. Eyes will sparkle with the Coin, which is both a digital and physical asset: a standardized set of diamonds with a wireless chip.


The availability of the Coin on the INX platform is pending regulatory approval for the $25 million initial public commodity offering. A letter of intent has already been signed—which means everyone’s cryptocurrency wallet may be shining brighter this Holiday season.


We recently caught up with Douglas Borthwick, Chief Marketing Officer and Business Development Officer of INX Limited, and asked him questions to offer insight into cryptocurrencies and the bright future of finance that lies ahead in 2021.


Why invest in cryptocurrencies?


Cryptocurrencies are limited in number. The local currency you currently use in your daily life is infinite. Indeed whenever your government wants to keep the economy running, or pay for a new social program, it simply prints more currency. This has been exacerbated by COVID, where government safety nets are not being paid for by higher taxes, but rather by higher money printing.


Investors in cryptocurrencies see them as life rafts for wealth. If you have your savings in your bank, the purchasing power is decreasing by the day, and you make little to no yield. Indeed in some countries a negative yield. Meanwhile if you move your wealth into cryptocurrencies, you see your wealth remain afloat. You can earn a solid yield, and the purchasing power is increasing. Best of all, there is no government interference and there is limited supply.


What is a smart investment for people who are unfamiliar with investing more than just mutual funds and 401Ks?


Many investors are dipping their toes into crypto through investment vehicles like GBTC. This is a Trust company that purchases Bitcoin, and then via an investment vehicle offers exposure to its price moves to investors.


How can people dip their toes into investing in cryptocurrencies without risking too much?


The best way to not 'risk too much' is to only invest that which you are happy to lose. If the position size makes you uncomfortable, then reduce the position size.


If a person invests in a cryptocurrency, how can they "cash out" on the investment when ready?


That is simple. Once you have purchased cyrptocurrency, you will be holding it in an electronic wallet, perhaps on an exchange. You would go to that exchange and sell out of that cryptocurrency, reversing the original transaction. It's like when you go to the bank and buy EUROS for your vacation. After the vacation you come back to the bank and sell them back the EUROS.


Can cryptocurrency be used to purchase products?


In the US, you can buy a SEC registered security (INX Limited is the first), and a myriad of shops, hotels and products now accept them as payment. Indeed, even PayPal now offers their customers the ability to buy and sell crypto through their app.


Where is cryptocurrency heading in 2021?

Cryptocurrency adoption is just getting started. There is a limited supply, with an exponential growing demand from institutions, retail and corporations. The more people learn about them, and the more they look to allocate their investment, then the higher in price the cryptocurrencies will go.

Rapists To Get Life Imprisonment In Osun State


The Osun State House of Assembly has passed into law a bill recommending life imprisonment for rapists in the state.

Speaker of the Assembly, Timothy Owoeye, who made the disclosure, also said a 14-year jail term now awaited anyone, who attempted rape in the state.

He said the passage of the bill into law was to assist in curtailing the spate of rape that had become rampant in the state.

According to him, the bill having passed through evaluation at a public hearing was later considered by the House Committee before passing the third reading for approval.

He observed that the bill would charge the law enforcement agents to prosecute rape cases logically and implore the youth to desist from the ugly practice.

COVID-19: A Biblical Analysis of this Pestilence and the Way Forward.


A pestilence is any very serious infectious disease that spreads quickly and kills large numbers of people. It is any epidemic disease that is highly contagious, infectious, virulent and devastating.

This description undoubtedly and accurately fits the disease terrorizing the world in a time like this.

A disease that has altered greatly, several plans and intents of mankind. Many schools have been closed down, many businesses shut down, many events postponed or cancelled, many organizations disorganized, several economies have been greatly confused, many cities have been isolated, desirable properties have been left unattended. All resulting from the terror of a microscopic but catastrophic, tiny but deadly virus called coronavirus.

Renown scientists and award-winning inventors of the world have been left appalled by this malignant virus.

Nations with the best military set-up have not been able to combat this terrorist called COVID-19.

Very affluent and wealthy nations of the world have been left handicapped by this virus. Obviously, money have not been able to overpower this powerful enemy of nations neither has physical strength granted men victory over this pestilence.

Kings and rulers of the world have passionately pursued a wayout of this menace but to no avail.

Indeed, this is a perilous time. Who shall save the world?

The word pestilence is most frequently used in the prophetic books in the bible, and it occurs 43 times in the New King James Version of the Bible and it is always accompanied by the words sword, noisome or evil beasts, or war or famine.

Biblically, a pestilence or plague is usually as a result of God's divine judgement or visitation against sin of a country or nation. (Ezek.14.13-19)

A pestilence at a time like this could be a validation or fulfillment of the words of the prophecy of Jesus Christ and other biblical patriarchs as touching the signs and symptoms of the end time. So this disease is a proof that Jesus Christ truely exists and that the world would soon be wiped out (Rev. 6).

Matt.24.7 - For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.

Luke.21.11 - And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.

Origin of the Pestilence (Coronavirus) traceable to the Holy Bible

It is visible to the blind and audible to the deaf that things which were considered, decades ago to be morally degrading, culturally debasing and spiritually demeaning have become globally celebrated in this present time.

We now have a world where a transgender is more celebrated than a general overseer.

We now have a generation that even in the face of global financial crises, expends heavy amounts of money to promote immorality and ungodliness.

Stories about paedophilia ( a state of primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prebubescent children by an adult), Incest (sexual relations between people classed as being too closely related to marry each other), Bestiality (sexual intercourse between a person and an animal) are becoming more frequent in our news headlines. We now have headlines such as;

Three men jailed for sex with cow, goat, nine horses and dogs

72-year-old ‘sexual predator’ accused of abusing underage boys

Seven bodies found in house after man shoots family in 'unimaginable tragedy'

Our news broadcast is now termed incomplete if it is void of stories related to violence, bloodshed, insurgency and terrorism.

A world where most success driven minds are now compelled to be immodestly and sexually appealing with their products and contents for them to be really "successful." (If your post on media is devoid of sexual contents, you are likely to have lesser patronage or followers).

Men of this generation have obviously embraced darkness and rejected light for their deeds are evil. We have often chosen Barabbas (a notorious murderer and robber) over Jesus Christ (the holy lamb of God that never sinned) (John 18:40, Mark 15:7).

Obviously, our persistent sin and rebellion against God is the root cause of this pestilence called Coronavirus.

This conclusion is justified by the following instances; On two occasions in the Bible, God destroyed 14,700 and 24,000 people respectively with a plague for various acts of disobedience and rebellion (Numbers 16:42-49 and 25:1-9)

Ezek.14.13 (NIV) - "Son of man, if a country sins against me by being unfaithful and I stretch out my hand against it to cut off its food supply and send famine upon it and kill its men and their animals,

Ezek.14.19(NKJV)- "Or if I send a pestilence into that land and pour out My fury on it in blood, and cut off from it man and beast,

Ezek.14.20 - as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, even if Noah, Daniel and Job were in it, they could save neither son nor daughter. They would save only themselves by their righteousness.

Jer.34.17(NIV) - "Therefore, this is what the LORD says: You have not obeyed me; you have not proclaimed freedom for your fellow countrymen. So I now proclaim 'freedom' for you, declares the LORD -'freedom' to fall by the sword, plague and famine. I will make you abhorrent to all the kingdoms of the earth.

What should we do? (The Way Forward)

The safest places on earth are not necessarily places with the best military set-up or best asylum they are merely places devoid of threats to safety. Those places are safe not because they are proficient and anticipatory in handling threats to security and safety. They are rather safe because they are relatively lacking in constituent factors of security vulnerabilities. Therefore, it is better to get rid of or exterminate Coronavirus by dealing with it's root causes than just adopting measures to mitigate, control or manage this lethal menace. Deal with sin and satan (stealer, destroyer and killer) will be gone for good.

Therefore, all and sundry should carefully consider the following;

1. Global repentance from sin and reverent acknowledgement of the sovereignty of the almighty God (Jonah 3:1-9, Romans 1:28-32)

Jonah.3.5 - So the people of Nineveh believed God, proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least of them.

Jonah.3.10 - Then God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God relented from the disaster that He had said He would bring upon them, and He did not do it.

2. A collective effort of humble prayers unto the Almighty God (IIChronicles 7:13-14)

2Chr.7.14 - if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

3. Absolute trust in God for protection against Coronavirus even while we try to be precautionary (Psalms 127:1, 91:1-4, Jeremiah 17:5) ~ Ps.127.1 - Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain.*

4. Faith in and plea for the blood of the Lamb of God (Jesus Christ) that takes away the sin of the whole world (Exodus 12:13, Revelation 7:14, 12:11) ~ Exod.12.13 - Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.

5. Individual acceptance of the Lordship and Saviourship of Jesus Christ because He is the ressurection and the life, He is also the door of His sheep. (John 11:25, Luke 10:19) ~ John.11.25 - Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.

John.11.26 - And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?"

John.10.7 - Then Jesus said to them again, "Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.

John.10.9 - I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.

Conclusion

In times like these you need a saviour,

In times like these you need an anchor;

Be very sure, be very sure

Your anchor holds and grips the solid rock

This rock is Jesus, yes He's the one,

This rock is Jesus, the only one,

Be very sure, be very sure

Your anchor holds and grips the solid rock, (Adv. Hymn No. 593, Stanza 1)

Governor Oyetola: We’ll ensure smooth take-off of Federal College of Education in Osun


Gov. Gboyega Oyetola of Osun says his administration will ensure smooth and effective take-off of the proposed Federal College of Education in the state.


Oyetola said this when members of the technical team of the Federal Ministry of Education and the National Commission for Colleges of Education visited him on Saturday in Osogbo.

The governor said the state government would do everything possible to support the Federal Government in its plan to establish the college in the state.

Newsmen report that Federal Government had, in January, approved the establishment of six federal colleges of education in the six geo-political zones of the country.

Newsmen also reports that Osun in the South-West is one of the beneficiaries, with the college sited in Iwo, Iwo Local Government area of the state.

Oyetola, who described education as the bedrock of socio-economic development of any society, said that the establishment of the institution in the state would complement his administration’s efforts at providing quality, qualitative and functional education.

According to him, the establishment of more colleges of education in the country will further contribute significantly to the development of vocational and technical education in the country.


He commended President Muhammadu Buhari, the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu and those who worked for the consideration of the state as one of the beneficiaries of the institutions.

“This is a rare privilege and we will continue to take it as such, because we are not the only state in the South-West.

“So, for something of this magnitude to come to our state, we are very grateful to Mr. President, and we will ensure its smooth take-off,” the governor said.

In his remarks, Prof. Bappa Aliyu, the Executive Secretary of National Commission for Colleges of Education, said members of the team were in Osun to inspect both the temporary and permanent sites of the institution.

Represented by Mr Ojo Samuel, the Director of Tertiary Education, Aliyu said that the visit was in fulfillment of the Federal Government’s commitment to promoting quality and functional education in the country.

“As a government, we are doing everything possible to improve the quality of education in the country and ensure that the people have unfettered access to education.

“We are also working hard to ensure the provision of competent teachers in all our colleges of education,” he said.
