BREAKING: Pastor Enenche Opens Up On Osinachi Nwachukwu

By
John Michael Ojo

The senior pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Center Pastor Paul Enenche has revealed all he knew about Osinachi Nwachukwu, who died on Friday at the National Hospital, Abuja over an alleged domestic violence.

Enenche, in a now viral video on his Facebook page seen by New Times, disclosed that the late singer and her husband Mr. Peter Nwachukwu who is the prime suspect in Osinachi’s death, paid him a visit in his office about a two and a half ago months and that the singer during the visit complained of chest pains and respiratory stress.

Enenche added that after praying for the couple, he asked them to visit the National Hospital for a thorough medical examination and that he also provided them with contacts at the hospital to enable them to have quick and proper care.

He said the stories he heard after the death of the late singer were shocking to him as he has always preached against domestic violence and wife battering. According to him, it is always good to leave an abusive marriage and live than stay because of marriage and die.

He said: “We are in a season that calls for sober reflection in the light of the passing of our beloved sister, Osinachi Nwachukwu, who is a kingdom asset.

“In the light of so much misinformation, in the light of so much misconstruction of events, I decided to set straight what I know concerning the situation.

“Over two and a half to three months ago, she came to see me with her husband with complaints of chest pain and respiratory distress.

“I prayed for her and prayed and prayed again. And when the symptoms did not abate, I counselled that they go to the hospital to help us to know exactly what we were dealing with.

“And they asked if I could assist, help them, and facilitate that process. I called our head of the medical team, Dr Sang, who is a consultant paediatrician with the Federal Medical Centre, Keffi to assist and handle the situation. And he called his colleagues at the Federal Medical Centre, Jabi, where they attended to them.

“On seeing her, they ordered some investigations after examinations and that included CT scans and computerized axial tomography scans. That was done. From what the doctor saw, they felt that there was a need for further investigation, either at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital or the National Hospital in Abuja.

“I called the doctor at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Dr Akor Alexander, and told him the situation and he asked that they come to see him immediately. And they went to the Gwagwalada teaching hospital.

“After they had examined her there and saw the situation, they felt that there was a need for histology and biopsy of the lung tissue, and they asked that they should go to the National Hospital to get that done.

“I again called the doctor, Jubril, who is head of pathology and consultant histopathologist of the National Hospital, Abuja, and reported the issue to him to help us go ahead with the investigations and find out what exactly happened.

“I am calling names, I am calling places because the people are available and alive and they are verifiable.

“And then, they continued the management. The histology was done and from what I saw at that time, the picture was much milder than what the CT scan earlier showed. So, we felt very happy that at least there was a relief.

“She called me, literarily daily and we prayed with her. She reported progress. The point came when she needed no oxygen anymore. According to what she said to me one night, they checked her oxygen perfusion and it was 100% and we were very very excited at that progress.

“That was the point it was before we went over to the crusade in Cameroon. It was in Cameroon, the second night that I got to know of the unfortunate incident of her passing.

“Now, if there was domestic violence that led to or coincided with the symptoms that she came with two and a half to three months ago, there is no way I would know and if there had been perrennial domestic violence, there was no way I would have known.

“The things we were hearing after her passing, were things that were very very strange to my hearing. Then, I began to ask questions.

“First, I asked the twin sister, were you aware that your sister passed through all these things? She said yes she knew some of them. But that the majority of them, she was hearing also from those she confided in.

“I asked her if you knew, why didn’t you let us know? And the twin sister said she always begged her please don’t let the church know, don’t let the pastor know please, the man would change, just pray for us, the man will change. And that continued to happen.

“I asked the first son yesterday, I said was this real? And the son told other stories. And I said, so, why didn’t you tell me because typically they will run to me after service and I will pray for them, lay hands on them, why didn’t you tell me about what was going on in the home?

“And the young man said, they could not tell me because the father would always ask them after they left me, what did you tell the pastor, did you tell him anything, and so on and so forth.

“Other members of the choir who were privy to what was going on, I asked several of them when we paid a visit to the house of the deceased yesterday. What happened? Why were we not aware of all these things? The same story, that she will always go on her knees and ask them please don’t, don’t, don’t, just pray, we are trusting God for him to change.

“The last one that touched me so much was the music producer, who came to see me in the office two days ago to tell me his own experience, how he witnessed that the man slapped the wife in his studio.

“And I said to him, you saw a man slap a woman in your presence and you left the man alone and you are a man yourself? And he said before he could respond to the man, the woman again in tears on her knees begged him not to do anything, to leave him alone. And not even to do anything at all, and so on and so forth.

“So, we have heard these stories and these are the things we got to know after she has passed.

“As a person and as a church, everyone who knows us knows that we have zero degrees of tolerance for domestic abuse and wife battery of any sort.

“If you have ever listened to any of our relationship messages, there is a principle and a rule we have and that is it is better to be alive without marriage than to die because of marriage.

“We have said that over and over and over. I am sure that some of us would have listened to the clips of those messages.

“Now, this kind of time is a time where people heap all manner of the blame on the church and that is typical because whatever goes wrong anytime the first port of call is the church.

“I have seen people ask questions, why should a wife abuser be a member of a church or how can somebody be so brutal and he is a member of a church?

“That is not a question that people who know the Scriptures should ask. You know the ark of Noah. The same ark that carried good animals had evil beasts inside the same ark.

“You know Jesus Christ had the followership of what the Bible called the multitude. And for me, multitude means multiple attitudes. People with a multitude of inclinations. People with multiple tendencies. People with multiple behaviours. In fact, one of those that followed Jesus Christ was a thief, who also sold him to death. He was called Judas Iscariot.

“The question is, how could somebody who followed Jesus Christ, as perfect as Jesus was, as instructive as he was, as impactful as he was, and still be a thief and murderer? That question is left for everybody to answer.

“But I can tell you the worst of it all, there was a personality called Lucifer, who was in Heaven, and became Satan, the devil under the nose of God in Heaven! A place where there was no sin and could have been no sin at all; this guy became an inventor and originator of sin. How is it possible for somebody to become a devil from being an archangel right inside Heaven?

“That is how possible it is for anybody to be anything while inside the church. Even the best of pastors or preachers or teachers in the world cannot change any man or woman, who is unwilling to be changed.

“In case you feel frustrated at anything, and you are airing your frustration here and there, it is a transfer of frustration, a transfer of aggression. The church is not your place of transferring frustration, transferring aggression.

“We are willing to help you. If you have so much bitterness, so much frustration, and so much distraction in your life and you don’t know where to vent it, but in situations like this, we can help you.

“We want to let you know we love you and Jesus loves you. It is well with you and it is well with your loved ones.

“For the family of the deceased, we pray for strength and health and for the body of Christ generally, it is well with you in Jesus’ precious name, amen.

“This is Dr Pastor Paul Enenche, Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre Worldwide. God bless you”.

EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren said, “Before he was whisked away for further questioning, the operatives ordered the loading of all the ATMs and the payment of the stipulated amount across the counter to the delight of the distraught customers who had spent hours on queues without getting the new notes.

“This discovery, which indicates a sabotage of the government’s monetary policy by some banks, was made by the EFCC in continuation of the ongoing surveillance and visit to banks across the country to access their vaults and verify whether they were deliberately refusing to dispense the redesigned Naira notes.

“More than five bank branches were covered today by the operatives in Abuja.”

He further stated that similar exercises were ongoing in zonal commands across the country.

The operation will continue until normalcy is restored to the banking system.

The EFCC also noted that Nigerians finding it difficult to access their funds at any bank and suspects foul play should contact the commission, for immediate intervention.

Aides Have Hijacked Leadership From Buhari – Babachir Lawal

Aides Have Hijacked Leadership From Buhari- - Babachir Lawal

President Muhammadu Buhari is no longer in charge of his government as some of his aides have hijacked his leadership of the country according to Babachir Lawal.

Babachir, a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, spoke when he appeared on Channels Television’s “The Verdict 2023”, on Friday night.

Speaking about the state of governance of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Lawal said things were out of the hands of the President.

He further stated that those in the present regime who had the ears of the president refused to carry out the expectations of the President or the public.

Lawal also said before the president’s election into office in 2015, he had shown a remarkable sense of leadership, while he previously held positions as governor of Borno State, Minister of Petroleum, and military Head of State, but had challenges with his “lieutenants”, and deciding who executed projects and orders when he came into power as President.

“Things are out of his hands, there’s no running away from that fact. There are people that do not take the orders they are given. As soon as they leave where the order is given, they go and do different things. There is nothing like cabal. There is no government that does not have an inner caucus. There’s no government. There are people who have the ears of the President, to whom the President by functionality, their functions in government, ought to do things, but they are not doing what the President tells them to do, or what the President expects them to do, or what society itself expects them to do.

“I can tell you this, I know President Buhari very well, even long before he became President, and most Nigerians also knew him. And the expectation was that based on his antecedents as former governor of Borno State, former Minister of Petroleum, and then President, he had shown a remarkable sense of ability to rule.

“By 2015, we were almost at the same level where we are this time around; people were fed up. But when he got in, I think the President had issues with his lieutenants, about who executes the orders he gives, and who executes the policies that he makes. And that is really my own side of things.”

Asked about his switch from his support for, and membership of the ruling All Progressives Congress, to join the Labour Party which has Peter Obi as its presidential candidate, Babachir said: “I’ve seen the light; you can repent when you see the light. I’ve seen the light, I saw the light and I repented, I’m sorry. I did that before. The light is Peter Obi. The darkness is the old system that used to govern us, which is represented by both the PDP and the APC. No change. The same people, the same agbada, the same red face cap. The same people. So Nigerians have seen the light, not only me.”

BREAKING: I’ll End Cash Crisis In Seven Days – Buhari

BREAKING: I'll End Cash Crisis In Seven Days - Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has urged citizens to give him seven days to resolve the cash crunch that has become a problem across the country from the Central Bank of Nigeria policy to change high-value naira notes with new ones.

During the Progressives Governors’ Forum who paid him a visit at the Presidential Villa to seek solutions to the cash crunch which they said was threatening the good records of the administration in transforming the economy, Buhari said the currency re-design would give a boost to the economy and provide long-term benefits. He expressed doubts about the commitment of banks in particular to the success of the policy.

“Some banks are inefficient and only concerned about themselves”, said the president, “even if a year is added, problems associated with selfishness and greed won’t go away.”

He said he had seen television reports about cash shortages and hardship to local businesses and ordinary people and gave assurances that the balance of seven of the 10-day extension would be used to crack down on whatever stood in the way of successful implementation.

“I will revert to the CBN and the minting company. There will be a decision one way or the other in the remaining seven days of the 10-day extension,” the president was quoted to have said in a statement released by his spokesman, Garba Shehu.

The governors told the president that while they agreed that his decision on the currency redesign was good and that they were fully in support, its execution had been botched and their constituents were becoming increasingly upset.

They told the president that, as leaders of the government and party in their different states, they were becoming anxious about a slump in the economy and the series of elections that are coming.

They requested the president to use his powers to direct the concurrent use of the new and old notes till the end of the year.

The president said when he considered giving approval to the policy, he demanded an undertaking from the CBN that no new notes would be printed in a foreign country and they, in turn, gave him assurances that there was enough capacity, manpower and equipment to print the currency for local needs. He said he needed to go back to find out what was actually happening.

Buhari told the governors that, being closer to the people, he had heard their cries and would act in a way that there would be a solution.
