1) Prophet Predicts Nigeria's Next President After Buhari.

Prophet Joshua Arogun who predicted the release of former Governor of Abia State, (Senator Orji Uzor Kalu) and victory of President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2015 general election has again insisted that Buhari’s successor will be a former governor from the South who was held in prison.

Arogun, who is the General Overseer of "Light of the World International Church" in Lagos, stated this on Sunday during the church’s ministration service.

He said that most people’s hearts has become so hardened that they question prophecies.

He also said his obligation is to release God’s revelations to him with no personal feelings attached to it.

2) Ortom, wife and other officials storm RCCG Makurdi during his 60th Birthday.

The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, his wife, Dr Mrs Eunice Erdoo Ortom and other top government officials on Friday stormed the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Gboko Road, Makurdi to mark his 60th birthday anniversary.

Governor Ortom who was born on April 23, 1961, is 60 years old today (Friday).

He is expected to meet with widows, orphans and the disabled as part of activities marking his diamond age which according to an earlier statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase will be held low-key.

3) FFK Slams Buhari.

Recently, Femi Fani-Kayode berated Presdient Muhammdu Buhari for supporting controversial Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Pantami, despite calls for his removal.

It's important to recall that presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, had said that there was a "cancel campaign" against the minister for holding views in the past that he has since renounced and apologised for.

In a statement on Thursday, the presidency added that it was supporting the minister despite widespread calls for his removal.

But in a series of tweets via his Twitter handle on Friday, Fani-Kayode said it is an insult to Nigerians for President Buhari to keep Pantami in his office despite the controversies surrounding him.

4) 5 suspects arrested over alleged fraudulent registration of SIM cards.
