SCOAN: Lagos State Commissioner Contradicts Self

wpid-20140917205355.jpgContradictory statements from the Lagos State Government witness at the resumed hearing of the trial of the contractors who handled the construction of the collapsed building belonging to The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN) marred events on Wednesday 22nd June 2016.

Consultant Urban Planner and former Commissioner, Lagos State Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development, Mr Toyin Adedamola Ayinde told the court that the CCTV footage showing the sequence of the collapse had been sent to the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) for analysis.

However, after admitting that he received a response from the aviation agency, he failed to state categorically its contents, leading several onlookers to suggest he was deliberately covering such information on the premise that it failed to corroborate with his own narrative.

The presiding judge, Justice Lawal Akapo, tried severally to have the witness state the contents of the response without any success, casting further aspersions on the integrity of his witness.

Ayinde continued by making contradictory statements concerning the distance of the aircraft that hovered over the building and the building itself.

Moreso, having told the court on Tuesday June 21, 2016 that he had observed an aircraft hovering over the building in the CCTV footage, the former commissioner told the court today that the aircraft did not directly fly over the building.

As the witness struggled to make articulate and categorical statements, Justice Lawal Akapo expressed his concerns, observing that due to the technicalities involved, it would be difficult to understand the witness who, rather than help the court in establishing facts, seemed to be confusing it the more.

All efforts by the prosecution counsel led by the Lagos DPP, Idowu Alakija to stampede the court into believing that the aircraft couldn’t have been responsible for the collapse of the building were vehemently rejected by the defense counsel.

E.L Akpofure, SAN had earlier raised an objection to that effect to which Justice Akapo concurred. The hearing is set to resume on Monday, June 27, 2016.

Nosa Osazuwa ( Email: ) was present during the court proceedings.

    Deuteronomy 4:31
    For the Lord your God is merciful God. He will not forsake you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.

    I salute the children, the relatives, the friends and the loved ones of the Martyrs of Faith for their strength and for their courage and for their hope in the Wonderful Counsellor, Lord Jesus Christ. I pray to the compassionate Lord Jesus Christ will continue to comfort you, to strengthen you, to help you and uphold you with His righteous right hand and to continue to wipe away our tears. He will protect you and keep you away from harm and watch over your life. I salute His anointed servant prophet of God Senior Prophet T.B. Joshua and his wife Evangelist Mrs Evelyn Joshua for their strength, courage and for their hope in Wonderful Counsellor and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In order to change lives, to change nations and to change the world for Him in the name of Jesus Christ. I pray that the compassionate Wonderful Counsellor continue to comfort you, to strengthen you, to help you and to uphold you with His righteous right hand. In the name of Jesus. He will protect you and keep you away from harm and watch over your life. In the name of Jesus Christ.
    The Holy Bible is advising us that God Almighty is merciful, He will not abandon you or destroy you or forget the covenant with your forefathers which he confirmed to them by oath. You are God’s chosen ones and you are loved by Him. In His great mercy He did not abandon you because He is gracious and merciful God. His great mercy and love endures forever. In His love and mercy He redeemed you, He lifted you up and He strengthen you.
    Hope does not disappoint us, because God Almighty has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. We ought to put our hope in His unfailing love and with him is full redemption. The Wonderful Counsellor delights in those who love Him who put their hope in His unfailing love. Those who hope in the Wonderful Counsellor will renew their strength. They will soar like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint
    If we have hope in Christ we are pitted more than all men. Since we belong to God Almighty. Let us be self controlled, putting on faith and love as breastplate and the hope of salvation as a helmet. We ought to put our hope in God Almighty who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain. Everyone who has hope in the Wonderful Counsellor purifies himself just as He is pure.
    The compassionate Lord Jesus Christ is gracious He gives power and strength to His people He created. He provides redemption and He comforts them. In the book of Isaiah 66:13 As one whom his mother comforts. So i will comfort you. And you shall be comforted in Jerusalem. In other words the Holy Bible is advising us that: God Almighty will comfort you as a mother comforts her child. Can a mother forget the baby on her breast and have no compassion on the child she bore. Though she may forget. The Wonderful Counsellor will not forget you. His unfailing love is our comfort according to His promise to His children. The unfailing love of the Lord Almighty will deliver us and save us.
    In the book of Jeremiah 33:6 Behold I will bring it health and healing; I will heal them and reveal to them the abundance of peace and truth. The Great Physician will bring health and healing to His children. He will heal His people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security. The plans God Almighty He has for us is to prosper you and plans to give you hope and a future. The Lord Almighty will not stop doing good to us.
    How great is the love the Heavenly Father lavished on us, that we should be called children of God. The Wonderful Counsellor will rescue us from the hand of our enemies and to enable us to serve Him without fear. The Wonderful Counsellor will make us new in our hearts and our minds, and to put on the new self. We are created to be like God Almighty in true righteousness and holiness. He will enable His anointed servants to speak His Wonderful Word of Life with great boldness. To stretch out their hands to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of Jesus Christ. He will bless you and make you very fruitful and increase you numbers.
    He will protect you from trouble and surround us with songs of deliverance. The Lords unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in Him. The Wonderful Counsellor will protect us by the power of His name.
    In the Book of Deuteronomy 28:7 The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face, they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways. The Lord Almighty will grant that the enemies who rise up against you, will be defeated, before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.
    The Prince of Peace will judge between the nations and settle disputes for His people. They will beat their swords into ploughshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation nor will they train for war again..
    May our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father who loved us and by His grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope. encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. In the name of Jesus Christ.
