A group in Ogun State, the Ogun Grassroots Development Awareness Forum, has described the immediate past Commissioner for Finance in Ogun state and one of the ministerial nominees waiting to be screened by the National Assembly, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, as an innovation-driven goal getter that Nigeria needs in her march to a new culture of governance that is based on integrity and performance.

In the same vein, the group has called on Governor Ibikunle Amosun to sustain the culture of prudence, innovation and accountability in the management of the state’s finance which was one of the hallmarks of his administration in his first term of office, if he hoped to remain eternally relevant in the history of the state.

In a media chat in Lagos, Chairman of the Forum, Adekunle Abegunde said Adeosun’s achievements stand tall as an important member of Governor Ibikunle Amosun’s crack team of experts and technocrats whose invaluable contributions in the governor’s first term catapulted the state on the national development index.

He observed that the governor’s well documented towering achievements in his first term of four years in the area of infrastructural renewal, expansion and maintenance across the state owed primarily to the turnaround in the state’s internally generated revenue capability which the ex-Finance Commissioner supervised.

“All well meaning Ogun indigenes today praise governor Amosun for what he achieved in his first term, especially the accelerated renewal of social infrastructure in the state.

Without a turnaround in the state’s IGR profile, that would not have been possible. So, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, as the Finance Commissioner then deserves commendation for working professionally, passionately and selflessly under the governor’s watch to establish prudence, accountability, innovation and right prioritizing as principles of financial management in the state. The state and its indigenes can never forget this achievement of hers”.

Abegunde noted further that the Ogun Home Owners Chatter was yet another innovative project of the Amosun government that Kemi Adeosun executed and supervised in a professional manner that indigenes would forever remain grateful for. According to him, the project has helped many property owners in the state to perfect their ownership documents with the government in a very affordable and stress-free manner.

While commending President Muhammadu Buhari for finding the former commissioner worthy of higher assignment at the national level,   Abegunde enjoined Governor Amosun to throw up a few other unique talents in his new cabinet so that the state’s development journey under him could receive fresh impetus.

“Governor Amosun has shown himself to be a good manager who is adept at throwing up great talents. He did that in his first cabinet. He should do it again. Ogun has given to Nigeria a very bright, fresh and passionate individual which the governor threw up in his first term. As indigenes of the state, we are proud of Kemi Amosun going to work with President Buhari.  It is up to Governor Amosun to ensure that Nigeria’s gain is not Ogun state’s loss”.

Bishop (Dr.) Tom Samson Revels On Life At 50

The founder and General Overseer of Christ Royal Family Int’l Church, Bishop (Dr.) Tom Samson is all set to hit the golden age in a couple of weeks.  In a well attended press conference on Thursday 8th October, 2015, the revered man of God revealed activities leading to his 50th birthday celebration that comes up on Saturday 12th December, 2015 inside his 100 hectare Royal City in Otta, Ogun State.

The Bishop who was born into the family of Pa Enweliku Samson, a mason from Delta State and Madam Eunice Enweliku Samson about fifty years ago in the ancient town of Ile Ife, revealed how he did not allow his poverty-stricken background affect his destiny, reiterating how his father died because the family could not afford N2000 for medication.
It was indeed an emotion-laden tale of an amazing grass to grace life experience that is worth inspiring anyone down today that he can be up tomorrow.

Violent Tom as he was known back in school days went through school without text books or handouts, but managed to see life through the then Bendel State University where he bagged a degree in Biology Education.

Bishop Tom Samson gave his life to Christ in 1985 and in 1986 when he joined the campus youth for Christ, a Christian fellowship in Ekpoma, while in his 100 level.

But as fate would have it, he moved to Abraka campus of the same University and started Christ Royal Family campus fellowship. At Abraka he was known as Violent Tom because of his zeal, energy and aggression in soul wining especially the way he involved the hide outs of cult groups and some hinterlands in the Niger Delta region.

After graduation, contrary to his desire of becoming a business man, God told him to preach the good news and that he should move to Lagos. He obeyed and Christ Royal Family campus fellowship transform to Christ Royal Family Church with the mandate to set the captives free and teach them to reign over life’s circumstance.

He is the general overseer of Christ Royal Family International Churches (an 100 acres city) with international headquarters Royal City, Ota and branches in Lagos (Egbeda, Ikeja, Festac, Ojokoro, Ikorodu) Abuja, Port Harcourt, London (U.K) Manchester, Dublin Ireland and Atlanta (USA)

He is the visitor /founder Royal City College of Education, Ota he is the proprietor of Royal City Colleges, Ota/Ikeja /Egbeda. Royal Dynasty International School Ota/Ikeja /Egbeda. He is the CEO of Royal City Medical Center Ota Royal City water factory, Royal City printing press  Ota. Presently his brain child project Monarch University is undergoing approval process.

He has been a good ambassador of the country every where he has preached globally United State of America Europe South Africa United kingdom and west Africa  and his efforts are appreciated with awards.

In obedience he stormed Lagos about 23 years ago to establish his ministry as instructed by God without a forwarding address or money to start up his ministry, he passed through difficult life preaching the word of God and setting-free the oppressed but today he operate an international ministry, has chains of schools, hospitals, etc without over 200 staff under his employment.

In all of the difficult times, Bishop Tom was not alone; he had a confidant, a friend, a soul-mate partner in ministry – his amiable and adoring wife, Apostle Lanre Samson, whom he described as his jewel, a good preacher and an astute administrator.  Coincidentally, both of them will be celebrating 50 on the same day.

At 50 God has been so good to His servant, with a thriving ministry, good family, a role model in the society, a father in faith, indeed Bishop Tom Samson has seen it all.
For his obedience over the years and sacrifices to the Kingdom of God, he is today blessed with things of life including his eye-popping 40 feet Hummer Limousine that he cruises around town in.

He is the founder of Tom Samson foundation a foundation that caters for the less privileged. He is the founder /president of charismatic and power fellowship of seasoned ministers comprising of over five hundred pastors and general overseers of churches.

The chairman of the organizing committee for the birthday, Deacon Iyke Kanu highlighting activities lined up for the occasion said, “Because it’s the 50th birthday of our great bishop, we have put in place several committees to work effectively to make the day a glorious one, the plan is to have a carnival-like birthday party that will continue to reverberate even so many years after because we will be using the occasion to reveal the body of Christ, to let the world know what Christ can do, using the celebrant as a case study.

“Bishop Tom Samson came to Lagos as nobody but held onto Christ but today the world is celebrating him.  His life has been one amazing inspirational tale that will definitely give hope and we are leaving no stone unturned in making it a good avenue to touch lives and showcase God’s wonder.

“Some of the activities lined up for the birthday bash include a novelty football match, the launching of this books and biography, etc.  we are prepared to host the world”, he concludes
