shall continue with the topic on blemished destinies—Aiye wa ti b’aje l’oju wa.
When you look at most of our politicians in today’s Nigeria, you quickly see a rapid departure of who they naturally
are, the moment they get into power. Why?
Some of these men were very good, kind and nice persons before they got into
power. But immediately they get there, they become monsters and intolerant
individuals; and the reason is not farfetched. Majority of them have bad wives
who control them and make them behave funny.
country, many years ago, we had a Governor in Ogun State (South West Nigeria) whose wife would be in the hospital
in Lagos, and because they want to go
and bring just simple ewedu (draw
soup) for her, to mix with her meal in Lagos,
they will drives her husband’s convoy of cars, maintained with tax payer’s
money to take the ewedu soup in Ogun state and bring it for her in Lagos. Just because of a small portion
of ewedu, you burn fuel and petrol
and run human resources to and from Lagos
to Ogun State and back.

same man brought voodoo to government when he was taking Araba of Ogboni title and
between Papa & Ilaro, over 80
people who were going for the event died in several car accidents and till
date, the tradition continues—Aiye wa

men are under the control of their wives and it is not a new culture, it
started right in the Garden of Eden
when Eve the woman God gave Adam as companion became his greatest
albatross—Aiye Adam b’aje l’oju e.
instructed Adam in Genesis 2& 3 not to touch the fruit
of the wisdom of good and bad, the Lord seriously warned him. The covenant here
is, ‘you Adam will continue to obey me and I, God, will
continue to provide for you and your family. We would remain friend and you
will lack nothing’ but the moment Adam listened to his wife, Eve, the covenant got broken and
everything came collapsing on Adam’s head—Aiye
Adamu b’aje loju Adam.

any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman”,
‘Has God indeed said, you should not eat
of every tree of the garden?’
woman said to the serpent, “We (She and her
husband) may eat the fruits of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the
tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it,
nor shall you touch it, less you die” (Gen 3: 1-3)
knew that God warned herself and her husband not to eat out of that evil tree.
She knew what was good from what was right, but like many of the wives of our
political leaders today who listen to outside influences and misbehave or cause
their husband to misbehave, Eve
decided to allow the devil to mess her destiny and that of her husband. See
what happened in verses 4-6

serpent said to the woman, “You will not
surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be
opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil” “So when the woman saw that the tree was
good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make
one wise, she took off the fruit and ate” The Bible recalled that “She also gave to her husband with her, and
he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were
naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings” (Verse
down, you will all see how God interrogated the man and his woman and finally
laid a curse on both of them and the serpent. In verse 16, God said to the
woman “I will greatly multiply your
sorrow and your conception; in pain you shall bring forth children. Your desire
shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you” and to Adam, for
listening to his wife, God cursed the ground against him—Aiye Adam b’aje loju e, aiye Efa b’aje loju Efa’

story of Nigeria started on the pedestal of a woman’s discretion. Lord Luggard was said to be fiddling
with a name option for the component of geographical locations he put together
by force, and while he was looking out of the window, maybe after having a time
out with his woman, she suddenly called out the name ‘Niger-Area’ and it stuck to his brain. Ms. Shaw christened Nigeria
and till date, we cannot have a peaceful development after a hundred years
union—Aiye wa b’aje loju wa.
of our political leaders, the wife of Buhari,
the wife of Osinbajo, the wife of Amosun, the wife of Ambode, and many of them, will either convince or confuse their
husbands to give contracts to their mothers, sisters, brothers, or even old
boyfriends. And since the man is in power, and blind to realities, he will
quickly deliver her wishes because why?—Aiye
ti b’aje l’oju e.
|Prophet MKO Tibetan in Service|
what happened in the book of Esther Chapter 2 from verse 13, it said “Each young woman went to the inner recess
of the king and she was given whatever she desires (clothes, fashion
accessories et al) to take with her from the women’s quarters to the king’s
palace”. In verse 14, such ladies after being with the king throughout the
evening, will later be led into a second house for women under the chaperon of Shaashgaz,
the King’s Eunuch who kept the
concubines—meaning that they were betrothed to the king. And any one of them
can only go back to the King if the king so delighted her and specifically
called for her name. That means the king sampled a whole lot of them but they weren’t
lucky to be called back to his presence.
was the turn of Esther in verse 15, Esther obtained an uncommon favor from
the king and she was taken into his royal palace. In verse 17, it says “The king loved Esther more than all the
other women and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the
virgins, so he set the royal crown upon her head and made her queen instead of
Vashti”: and after that what happened? The king made a great feast called—The Feast of Esther for all guests and
even proclaimed a holiday in his province, giving gifts to many. So, why did
that happen? Because the king was ready to become a mechanic later in the night
and face down while Esther faces up. However, she obtained grace and through
that achieved her petition to kill Haman—the
long time enemy of her tribe, during a banquet in chapter 5. It was a timely
plot and it was okay for the Jews of her time. That is the kind of power most
of the wives of our political leaders uses to influence their husband today and
that is why Nigeria has remained the same, with nothing working in favor of
generality—Aiye wa ti b’aje loju wa.

of Mark Chapter 6, we could also see the power of a woman manifesting in the
political life of Herod’s kingdom in Galilee. Herod married Herodias the wife of Philips his younger brother and John the Baptist preached against it. It
was something obnoxious in the eyes of God and His people, and even though, Herod respected John the Baptist, he got him arrested and locked up on the order of
Herodias his new wife. Imagine the
power of a woman in the whole transaction. Why? Simply because John said “It is not lawful to have your brother’s wife” and Herodias held it against him and wanted
to kill him. But Herod didn’t see the
full script and the level a woman can go in this case. Herod feared John but
only arrested him and kept him in custody to please his wife.
opportunity came in verse 21 when Herod just
like the king in Easter chapter 2, gave a feast to his nobles,
high officers and chief men of Galilee.
Then Herodias’ daughter came in and
danced to the delight of her step father’s guests. The King who was now drunk
with love and affection said to her “Ask
me whatever you want, and I will give
it to you”; he didn’t stop there, he swore to her in verse 23 that “whatever you ask me, I will give it to you,
up to half my kingdom”. So, the
girl went out to her mother and asked her ‘what
shall I ask?’ and the very wicked woman said to her “Ask him for the head of John the Baptist”.
imagine what that meant for her to ask that a living soul be killed for her own
satisfaction on such an auspicious occasion, and the moment the girl rushed
back to her step father on the high table and said “I want you to give me at once the
head of john the Baptist on a platter”. And what happened? Verse 26 made us
know that the King was exceedingly sorry, yet because of the oath he do taken
and because of the presence of his guests, he couldn’t decline. He sent an
executioner and commanded the head of John
the Baptist to be brought and the executioner went and beheaded him in prison.
In verse 28, the head of John the Baptist was brought on platter and given to
the girl and the girl in turn gave it to her mum”
|We Suffered Because of Bad Choice|
most of the wives of our political leaders do to their husband, they command
and make their husbands to do things that they will necessarily not do. We were
all in this country when Goodluck
Jonathan’s wife became law unto herself and made statements, lewd
statements against her husband’s political opponents. We were in this country
when the wife of Yar ‘Adua and the cabal ruled Aso Rock and kept the man out of circulation. Today, we are hearing
more stories about how our politicians are falling prey to the whims and
caprices of their women—Aiye won ti b’aje
38, the story of Judah and Tamar is
very instructive about the skirmishes and lip-skill of a woman. From verse 6, Judah took a wife for Er. His first son and her name was Tamar. But because Er was wicked in the sight of the Lord, the Lord killed him. And
Judah gave Onan his second son the
chance to continue with Tamar so that
he can raise an heir for his late brother. That was the custom then. But
because Onan believes that the heir
will not be named after him, whenever he slept with Tamar and was to ejaculate, he discharged it on the bed rather than
deep inside her vagina. Verse 10 said the things he did displeased the Lord and
the Lord killed him too. Now, what happened? Judah said to Tamar his
daughter-in-law, ‘remain as a widow in
your father’s house until my last son, Shelah is grown’. Of course, Judah
had ulterior motives; he felt his last son could also die after sleeping with Tamar. But Tamar went and did as agreed and according to the custom and
tradition of the time.
course of time (Genesis 38:12) Judah
lost his wife and was already comforted and even forgotten his covenant with Tamar. But Tamar was still hoping to get something from Judah. But while on a visit to a nearby town—Timnah, Tamar got wind of
his movement and quickly went and dressed herself as a harlot and waited for
him at an open passage on the road to Timnah.
She had lifted her widow veil and dressed like a harlot—you can see the
skirmishes of a furry woman. Of course Tamar
was grieved for Shelah who was
grown but not given to her as husband. When Judah
saw her, he took her for a harlot and had a robust moment with her in privacy.
climbed her, he promised to send her a young goat from his flock but she made
him drop a pledge which was his signet,
chord and staff. He gave them to her even before sleeping with her. He did
and she conceived for him. After the whole show she went away and laid aside
her harlotry veil and put on her widowhood garment. Of course he tried reaching
her with the goat gift in order to retain his chord, signet and staff but he couldn’t locate her any
news came to Judah that his
daughter-in-law was pregnant with harlotry and he asked for her to be brought
out for public stoning and death which was the custom at the time. But what
unraveled afterward humbled Judah and
ruffled custom and tradition—when she was brought out, she said to Judah “By the man to whom these belong, I am with child” and she said “Please, determine whose these are—the signet,
and chord, and staff”
I did not give her to Shelah my son”—Aiye Judah b’aje lo ju e. Eventually, she gave birth to twins—Perez and Zerah and Judah never
knew her again.
tells us further how powerful women can use their mouth and carnal influence to
make a man loose it or miss his journey in life. In Nigeria today, majority of first born children don’t belong to
their father. The woman brought the baby in its rudiment stage and forced it on
the man—Aiye won b’aje loju won.
these are the 7 things that a woman has no power over. They are:
does not know the time and hour the baby will come; and if you see how she
messes up that day, you will pity her. In fact, if you can record all what she
was saying or doing during the labor hour, she will hate herself. Why? She is
yielding to God’s anger in Genesis 3:16.
woman cannot stand hunger. If hunger catches a man and a woman; you will see
that the woman will lose control and make mess of herself, before the man will
even blink an eye.
is another thing a woman has no power over. Sickness is powerful when it comes
hitting a woman and at such junction of her life, you could be opened to lots
of her misdemeanor.
A woman has no power over sexual misdeed (Asise). If that low moment of
chemistry comes calling, she can even sleep with her husband’s driver. It is so
bad to that extent; she might finish doing it and become normal again. I have
seen a situation where a woman went to do juju in an herbalist home and she
said ‘Baba, I don’t have money o, but I
can come back tonight and sleep over and
the man said, ‘have this charm free then’.
Check Portiphar’s wife and Joseph in
woman has no power over crisis (Ajalu).
She might even be the architect of the crisis through her indiscretion and
misdeed and in most cases; she will even bring the Ajalu on her beloved husband. The story of Adam & Eve in Genesis 3 and the story of Herodias and Herod in Mark 6 is a case study. There are many other
instances even in Nigeria of today
both now and in the past.
woman sleeps, you can see everything she is hiding. A woman has no power over
sleep. She cannot overpower nature and you see that in everyday life.
another powerful thing that is stronger for a woman to handle. Leave her to
wear all her pan-cake, dress extravagantly and misbehave to anyone. But she can
never misbehave to death.
seven things, a woman can use all she has to ensnare a man, a country and a
tribe—Aiye wa ti b’aje loju wa.
