Arisekola's Death: Friends and Associates Fear Family Rift Over Estates and Properties

The recent news of the death Ibadan based billionaire Alhaji Abudulazeez Arisekola-Alao came as shock to family, friends and associates despite the fact that he had been battling with cancer of the colon for sometimes now, and as expected encomium has been pouring in from governments, politicians and corporate bodies alike.

However, friends and associates of the billionaire businessman who has many wives are afraid his death may be a catalyst that will break his family if care is not taken. It would be recollected that the family of the acclaimed winner of June 12, presidential election in the country Chief Moshood Olawale Kashimawo Abiola (MKO) has been embroiled in one crisis or the other over the properties of the late politician years after his death due to the fact that he's married to more than one woman, and it is feared that same may crop-up in the case of Aare Musulumi of Yorubaland.

Sources revealed that it will be difficult for any member of his family to manage his several acre Bashorun home, the compound which starts from Bashorun all the way to Akobo area of Ibadan is rumoured to house a wild life park and it is believed the maintenace and management of the estate will be too much of any of his children.

It is also feared that the posibility of the Aare of not leaving a written Will may give room for such crisis, another source revealed that his death may have give room for his family to face series of law cases as regard the many land grabbing allegation leveled against the businessman a situation which had at a time pitched him against the children of late legal luminary Chief FRA Williams, who asked him to stay off their father's property.

Though it is argued that Alhaji Arisekola-Alao is more intelligent than to make such mistake of not leaving a written instruction on how to share his properties others are quick to point out that the Will may even lead to another round of legal war as children that are not satisfy may want to prove points, it is only time that will tell how things will be after his death.

Prophet T. B. Joshua Standing Tall in the Lord Not Minding Persecution at 51

He who is favoured by God, the Bible said will live like a banana planted by the riverside that flourishes and bring forth fruits as at when due. This is the best way to describe the man in the synagouge, Prophet T. B. Joshua, who is looking younger not minding the fact that he will be 365 days above the golden age today.

The prophet who can be dubbed the most criticised and villified man of God in Nigeria has over the years turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to the nonsence many has been saying about him as he in turn has been impacting positively in the lives of the poor and downtroden in the country, who he has always been known to help through different plans put in place for such reason.

A quick scan of Prophet T. B. Joshua's life changing encounters includes his decision to come to the help of veteran Nigerian actor Charles Olumo, popularly known as "Agbako" in the Yoruba genre of Nigerian movie. The eighty something years Agbako, whose state of finances is nothing to talk about until he met the prophet who he described as a real man of God in an interveiw he granted journalist during his 84years birthday in 2011, in his words "Prophet TB Joshua is a real man of God. God has used him in helping the less privileges. He helped me. The money he gave me, I bought a brand new car and I started completing my house."

He has also impacted positively on the lives of so many in the country which informed the reason many always troop to his church to with the hope that they'll be lucky to have an encounter with him, knowing that he's not one of those men of God who'll insist you become a member of their church or a Christian before they can asist you as he helps not minding religion or denomination. This is just a simple way of wishing this exemplary man of God a wonderful Birthday.
