If Invited To Become Nigeria’s President, I Will Consider It A Demotion – Oyedepo

Presiding Bishop, Living Faith Church Worldwide, David Oyedepo on Sunday said he would consider it a demotion if invited to become Nigeria’s president. Oyedepo, during his sermon, said God specifically, in 1984 asked him if he was interested in going top and that he answered in the affirmative. He said God told him, “Then whatever I tell you to do, do it. Don’t run around: whatever I tell you to do, do it. Don’t muse about: whatever I tell you to do. Don’t do what they do: do what I tell you to do. “1984!

Appeal Court Reverses Magu’s Demotion Of EFCC Director

The Court of Appeal in Abuja, on Tuesday, reversed the demotion of the former Commandant of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission Academy, Mr Ayo Olowonihi. The court affirmed the February 26, 2019 judgment of the National Industrial Court which had upturned Olowonihi’s demotion. Justice Yargata Nimpar, who read the lead judgment of a panel of the Court of Appeal, held that the lower court was right in declaring as invalid the EFCC’s handbook used in disciplining him as it was not approved by the commission. The court held that his demotion did not follow due process, therefore, unlawful, illegal and should be set aside. It upheld the judgment of Justice Musa Kado to the effect that while the chairman of the commission or the secretary had the right to initiate disc...
