I have been very clear on my thoughts about Pstor Ibiyioimie’s very unbecoming death threats on his PULPIT to Daddy Freeze over his comments to Bishop Oyedepo… but lest anyone be confused about my thoughts on Daddy Freeze, or think I support the public ridicule and disrespect to our pastors and elders, here are my thoughts on him

I think Daddy Freeze is a very Rude, Uncouth and Vindictive showman with a dull axe to grind with men of God, and he seems to derive perverse pleasure in abusing his elders, fathers and pastors instead of simply arguing his points.

To my objective observation, Daddy Freeze seemed to have a grudge and a chip on his shoulder for successful pastors. He seemed to automatically assume, VERY WRONGLY IN MY OPINION, that any successful pastor must be doing something wrong. He also seemed to assume that everyone with a different interpretation of doctrine from his own is a crook (not so. Some positions are honestly held by these men even if we think they are wrong)

Daddy Freeze has also turned the bully pulpit he was blessed to have as a broadcaster to cause more disaffection in the Faith than creating Unity and converting souls in the way he has gone about his destructive criticisms of objectionable doctrines and practices in Christendom.

IMHO, being a broadcaster with a huge following is a blessing for the Kingdom that Daddy Freeze seemed bent on squandering in the pursuit of scoring cheap points against church leaders. He could use that pulpit to get more people into the Kingdom of God but as it is all he seemed to enjoy doing with his program is discouraging people from Christianity.

Yet he refused to convert to paganism himself

While, to be fair, Daddy Freeze often raised very important debatable doctrinal issues, and I have even agreed with his doctrinal position on more than one occasion, while I disagreed it with him on many of his other positions too. No one can deny his boldness and even occasional brilliance

As far as I am concerned , Iron cannot sharpen Iron if they do not grate against each other, and I do not hold his contrarian views against him. Truth be told, I am pretty contrarian myslef on many issues…. and I love a healthy edgy debate over docile acceptance of cannons that make no biblical or common sense.

So, I am all for us as a a people debating, discussing and thinking about doctrinal issues especially those we inherited from our teachers and elders when we first became Christians without thinking about them deeply for ourselves.

However, I also believe Daddy Freeze could have presented his contrarian positions well without the unnecessary rudeness and public ridicule of men of God, some of whom are older than his father, and some who may be young, but who have been doing God’s work for a much longer time than he has been a christian

In our culture, Respecting your elders is a constant even if you beleive your elders were wrong. You can challenge their thoughts forcefullly ON THE ISSUES and even point out their errors without debasing their dignity and respect. (It’s a fine line we must all walk as men of thought)

Daddy Freeze does not seem understand or appreciate that distinction, like any well-brought up Yoruba man would appreciate .

Frankly, I was embarrassed to find out that Daddy Freeze is a YORUBA BOY like me, (He May be a half caste but he grew up in IBADAN and his names are 100% Yoruba) and in our culture there are some things you just don’t say to elders loudly, and in public, no matter how deserving.

In the OMOLUABI CULTURE of the Yorubas, you can disagree with Elders (and Pastors, by virtue of their positions, are considered elders too regardless of how young), and I disagree with a LOT or ‘established’ doctrines as a matter of fact, but you cannot call your elders, fathers and anyone older than you unprintable names in public. That’s a No-No.

To put it mildly his incessant personal attacks on Pastors like Pastor Adeboye, Bishop Oyedepo and other Leaders of the Faith far and above his disagreement with their doctrinal positions is very offensive, crudely obnoxious and frankly alien to the culture of his fore fathers. That’s why people are calling the legitimacy of his birth into question….

In our YORUBA language and culture, you would be referred to as a BASTARD, if you talked to elders anyhow and without respect (regardless of the validity of your points) as Daddy Freeze has repeatedly done over the years.

You can surely point out what you considered their errors but attacking them personally and ridiculing them outside of the issues is a bit too far

IMHO, Daddy Freeze often takes away a lot from his credibility and his arguments with the way and manner he went about it .

I believe Daddy Freeze could actually help a lot of Christians to think better, and read the Bible better, with his contrarian views that forces everyone to go study the Bible more, if he could somehow find a way to stick to the issues instead of unnecessary ad hominem attacks.

As my first Christian mentor and bible teacher, Dr Olubunmi Dada, used to tell me when I step over the line in my arguments with my friends, (and I am still learning to be better at it 😄) we can disagree without being rudely disagreeable, especially with Elders.

It is one thing to call your age mates or juniors bad names, that’s bad enough but can be excused, but abusing your fathers in public is a No No in our culture, and the elders in Daddy Freeze family need to speak to him urgently!

FYI: I am age mate of Pastor Ibiyioimie and a Pastor like him too while I am at least 12 years OLDER than Daddy Freeze. So while Pastor Ibiyiomie may be more accomplished as a pastor, we are age mates and he is NOT an elder to me. So I can ‘harass’ him as a brother as I have done these last few days . Daddy freeze on the other hand is our ABURO by far since he is at least 13 years younger. So he should mind his language o😄😄😄

Domestic violence is a violence or other abuse in a marriage.
Domestic violence could involve any body but I’m looking at it in a family setting between a man and his wife.

Domestic violence includes

  • Physical, verbal, emotional, economic, religion reproductive and sexual abuse.

Many people are going through a lot in marriages today, some Christan homes inclusive. This has caused a lot of harms in homes, churches and the society at large. So many women have lost their lives in the process,men inclusive but women are mostly at the receiving end. And they endure mostly even to the point of loosing their lives. This they do because of:

  1. The love they have for their spouse
  2. Because of their children
  3. What the society will say about them
  4. Because of their faith and religion.

Please when beating and sexual molestation becomes the case in your home, there’s need for separation.

Now in as much as the Bible frowns at divorce, I don’t think it’ll be reasonable for one to remain in an abusive marriage where his/her life is a stake. The same children you think about will still be maltreated, neglected and will be forced to face horrible situations the moment you are gone. The same society you are thinking of what they will say will still blame you for not speaking out on time. Your making heaven is even very slim because I don’t think your heart is clean in that condition. Your bad thoughts, unforgiveness and bitterness is enough to send you to hell. And instead of you to commit murder, I think you should separate if that’s the only option left.

Many women are going through alot. When a domestic violence involves life threatening abuses, there’s need for you to seek for help.

Many women have died in this process. Pls being born again doesn’t mean your brain should be suspended. Yes divorce is a sin but you shouldn’t die either because you are married. You are being asked to keep praying often times, yes but you could do that also while away. Many women are dying silently. Women please speak out in such conditions, don’t keep quiet. Make sure the problem is not from you. Make sure you are not the cause of it.

I have seen a woman beating blue black by her husband. Not once not twice. Infact the man always use cane,belt etc on her. And she’s asked to keep praying. What if she die one day? What if she couldn’t take it any longer and tries to defend herself and kill her partner in the process, what will be her lot?

Women should take the necessary steps the moment they see that things are getting out of hand.

Try to see how you could save the situation by involving your spiritual leaders, your both families,the people your partner respects so much and if there’s no changes please take a break while you pray and take the necessary steps to save your marriage.

Pls note that your being away is for the mean time. Even while away you are to remain and keep your body. It’s not a time to go about messing up. If you do that you are commenting sin. You are to maintain sexual purity. Even when your partner is doing otherwise. The only time remarriage is possible is when one partner is dead. See Romans 7:2,1cor.7:39.

Neighbors should as well look out for their fellow women/men. Please speak out for them. Some of them are in a tight corner and can’t help themselves.

Stay tuned for the next post on this same topic!

A group, the Federal Social Democrats, says the credibility and integrity of the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, have been diminished by the alleged shooting of #EndSARS protesters by soldiers at the Lekki tollgate on the night of October 20.

According to the group, the Lekki incident has eroded the admiration that Sanwo-Olu won with his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The group, in statement on Sunday signed on its behalf by Olutola Mobolurin, also condemned the harassment of #EndSARS protest leaders through the freezing of their bank accounts and stopping them from travelling outside the country.

The FSD’s statement was titled, ‘Statement by the Federal Social Democrats On the #EndSARS Movement and Violence in the Wake of Lekki Shootings.’

The group said, “Governor Sanwo-Olu, who before now has been credited with responsible and energetic response to the COVID-19 pandemic, has by this one act lost his credibility and integrity for many. He has a big task in regaining the confidence of the public and youths; his credibility gap surrounding what happened at the Lekki Toll Plaza is not helped by the insensitive bluster of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the governor’s residence stating that those who were injured and presumably those who died had questions to answer.”

Though the group condemned the destruction of public assets and looting that trailed the shootings at the Lekki tollgate, it said the mayhem pointed to the alienation of a large number of youths from society by government.

It said, “The so-called hoodlums are the youths that have been denied any stake in society by the self-dealing and state capture that have characterised governance over the last 30 years. Millions of our youths have been uneducated, unemployable and with no meaningful social safety net. Even for the millions who are educated and skilled, long-term unemployment has been their experience in the Nigerian prebendal political economy that serves primarily the interests of public office holders and their cronies.

“Some of the ‘hoodlums’ responsible for the trashing of Lagos are the youths and ‘the toughies’ that many politicians have over the years employed to subvert the democratic process through intimidation of voters and perpetration of violence during elections.”

The group said the organisers of the #EndSARS protests deserved commendation for the resourcefulness, transparency and accountability which they demonstrated.

The group condemned “the growing reports of compilation of names of the assumed leaders and facilitators of the protests for government reprisals.”

It said, “Those that are being targeted are reportedly being prevented from travelling outside Nigeria while accounts of some have been frozen. This is hardly the hallmark of a democratic government that is interested in dialoguing with the youths or learning positive lessons from the #EndSARS protests. It is also a violation of the spirit of government’s acceptance of the 5 for 5 agenda. The President should stop all these acts of witch-hunt.”

The FSD solicited support for the Lagos State Government to rebuild and replace the vandalised public assets.

• Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala had been expected to be confirmed as leader on Monday

By Richard Partington

The race to find a new leader of the World Trade Organization has been thrown into renewed uncertainty after the cancellation of a key appointment meeting following the US presidential election.

The Geneva-based WTO, which acts as an international arbiter for trading disputes, said it had put off a meeting scheduled for Monday that had been called to appoint Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as its next director general.

Donald Trump’s administration opposed her selection in one of its final acts before the US election, despite the former Nigerian finance minister securing the overwhelming backing of the WTO’s 164 members.

The special meeting of the trade body’s general council had been convened to take a formal decision on the appointment. Officials had been set to put forward Dr Okonjo-Iweala as the candidate most likely to attract a majority, after most countries expressed a preference for her over South Korea’s Yoo Myung-hee.

Okonjo-Iweala had moved a step closer to becoming the first woman and the first African to be director of the global trade watchdog after securing backing from the EU, China, Japan and Australia. Liam Fox, the leading Brexiter and former international trade secretary, had run as the UK government’s preferred candidate but failed to win enough support from other countries to reach the last two in the process.

Trade experts said Joe Biden defeating Trump in last week’s election may have led to countries calling for a delay in the WTO leadership race, with the aim of securing the Biden White House’s backing for Okonjo-Iweala after he takes charge in January.

The delay in selecting a new WTO director general comes at a fragile moment for the world economy amid the second wave of Covid-19, and after years of criticism of the WTO and calls for reform from Trump.

The WTO said the meeting would be postponed until further notice, during which time the organisation would continue undertaking consultations with delegations from countries around the world to pick a new leader.

It said in a statement: “For reasons including the health situation and current events, delegations will not be in a position to take a formal decision on 9 November.”
