The General Overseer of Salvation Ministry, David Ibiyeomie, on Sunday stated that there is a high rate of divorce across the world.
According to Ibiyeomie, the high rate of divorce is due to the ideology of couples before they enter into marriage.
The cleric while preaching in his church’s headquarters in Port Harcourt said some people go into marriage with divorce in mind as an alternative when things go wrong.
Ibiyeomie noted that it is wrong to expect divorce in marriage, charging his members to embrace marriage with the mindset to stay forever.
He said, “They say that in every marriage there must be trouble and if you ask them why they say when we marry, we would expect.
“Do you know people expect to divorce before they marry? they will say “if it doesn’t work then I will walk away”. So, from the beginning of the marriage failure has started because the expectation was wrong.
“Look, I am going in, if it doesn’t work then I’ll step out”. I can tell you that you will divorce because from the beginning you have a faulty expectation. Why must you expect that you will pack out?
“When you have a strong expectation, you won’t be confused by anything, you’re sure that this thing must happen”.
The Nigerian Military has eliminated a top commander of the Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP), Mallam Ari at Kirta Wulgo in Borno State. The ISWAP commander and others with him were eliminated by bomb airstrikes from the Super Tucano jets of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) deployed under Operation Hadin Kai. A senior military officer quoted by PR Nigeria revealed that the airstrikes killed up to forty terrorists who were gathered along the fringes of Northeast Kirta Wulgo. The source said Ari until his death was in charge of Kirta Wulgo but was taken out by the airstrike along with foreign mercenaries fabricating Improvised Explosive Devise (IED) for the terrorists. The military intelligence officer said: “Some were also seen with weapons around a nearby make-shift structure, which was a likely indication that the structure might have had a high calibre terrorist target. “After the airstrikes, some of the surviving terrorists were observed making frantic efforts to put out the fire that ensued while others took to their heels. “Indeed, the make-shift structures were significantly burnt and destroyed at the fringes.” “Several ISWAP fighters were neutralized in the airstrikes including one Mallam Ari who was identified as the Fiya of Kirta Wulgo.” Fiya is a title held by the second in the hierarchy of the terrorists’ military structure. NAF spokesperson, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet also confirmed the airstrike at Kirta Wulgo but remained silent on the number as well as identities of those killed.
