The Laws and the Kings



By Tolulope A. Adegoke

“There is a “kid” in every “king”, and in every “kid” lies a KING (Giant). To impart the world for impacts (in greater dimension or capacity), there is absolute need to put the “kid” in the “king” to sleep for maximum deliveries of purpose and possibilities. To sometimes ease the king of undue stress, there is also need to awake the “kid” in the “king” for rejuvenation and revitalization. The title isn’t just a blessing, but responsibility to impart for impacts and deliver possibilities. Leadership at all levels involves or requires being responsible, and it takes humility to be so! The scale of power isn’t “pow-wow,” but an “authentic” that must be balanced for effective deliveries. Wisdom is therefore the basic tool for effective leadership; of what use is “speed” when there is no “direction” (strategy or direction)? Wisdom of course is the principal thing, and in all thy accumulations, get understanding while leaning on the laws which guides the essences of your presence, while earning based on your very loyal inputs in your regalia on the royal throne that governs and “converts” ordinary men into extraordinary beings within the council of creations, ultimately governed by the Creator of all beings and things.”  Tolulope A. Adegoke, Ph.D., MNIM

A king, the king, and kings have kingdom(s) where he rules and governs his people. He was chosen to be the “head” by divine consultation(s) and approvals. Nothing surpasses the application of wisdom, knowledge and understanding, except God’s divine intervention which is a continuous mystery to mankind. Kings rules by the divine arrangement of words and power. In reality, kings are weak without the aforementioned. Every king was just a man created or born normal just as a serf was born, but what distinguishes him from the serf is simply the mystery behind his destiny which is a “joker” in card games of sense, beyond senses of the mortals!

“All men were born equal, but never with the same destiny”. The destiny of a man is an indication or a “blue-print” of his future and purpose of creation (essences and presence). Every king is harmless without the works, the words and worlds of wisdom, knowledge and understanding (and their applications) joined with the mantle of power to properly discern and judge rightly.

Nothing lasts forever! so is a saying, but kings believes that impacts or deeds of men speaks better for him when they are gone to total rest (posterity and immortality begins it cause and courses, here). A king, even though he is a king rules by the divine guides (laws) guidance and guardians which has to be properly followed so that tremendous successes which leads to greatness can be made or achieved! These laws aren’t just what we simplify or express by mere words of the “mouth” but truly “dangerous”, yet by divine “touch” (of acknowledgement and fellowship) which can only be provoked by the metaphysical (spiritual) business transactions, basically referred to as “Sacrifices” as a result of humility, obedience, compassion and patience, etc. – just as nothing goes for nothing. Children gives offerings, but it is the sole responsibilities of kings to offer sacrifices!

The spiritual room or power of king(s) is his “mind” and the tongue (confession and profession). Ordinarily, the mind is a royal mortal weapon or transformer, while the brain is a powerful machine in the human system for transformation and reformations, even though it is invisible, but triggered by the combination of senses in the human body, the biological “capital territory” of the human heart and rekindled by the burning “Soul,” which is the sole territory of passions and desires. The mind is majorly powered by the divine endowed combination of powers bestowed unto MAN, even in reality: spirit, the soul and the body. If any of these grows weak, it is automatically noticed in the mannerism or attitudes of the concerned individual(s), let alone the kings(s). This guides kings in disguise simply as the ultimate foundational (early) “anointing oil” lavished on him from the on-set as at the time(s) of pronouncement and impartation(s); as this activates the “god” nature in him to MANifest (the state of the authentic essences of his creation to not only exist, but live, lead and yield in the cycles of realities), because MAN (Made Above Nature) was originally created to be “gods” so as to be creators, inventors, builders, parents among others mortal missions for immortality to interfere among mortals.

The manifestation of these divine powers and prowesses makes and keeps him a king, and the king, which consistently and conscientiously helps him to follow the realities of his mandate, that is to DELIVER possibilities. The exact purpose of a king on the throne of power is to deliver, provide, save, lead, guide, and judge his people aright without sentiment or bias, but with discernment and a heart of underSTANDING.

The Guiding Golden Rules:

i.       The number one law of kings is simply to be SERVE-(ANTS)HANDS– to be servant to his people and not even to see himself above the people, though his words are treasures and powers that (may) triggers (instant) action(s).

ii.     Secondly, kings without the awesome treasure and power of HUMILITY are bound to “die” before their time! Humility is key in human endeavours, let alone kings who are the “focus” of power and the mortal guidance of the people as ordained by the divine order. It takes humility and compassion to give, it takes humility to deliver, it takes humility to discern, it takes humility to regard and treasure, it takes humility to operate in and engage the forces of wisdom, knowledge and understanding, it takes humility to become a serving-hands (ants) on the throne for the betterment of his people. Leadership involves being responsible, but it takes humility to be responsible!

iii.  Leadership shouldn’t just be seen as blessings alone, but RESPONSIBILITIES, because so many people’s destinies are hanging on the king’s shoulders. So many hopes are high, so many visions are bright, and so many hearts beats are raised as their expectations are. Being king shouldn’t intoxicate him, because it is a responsibility of servants to be(crowned) with the title “kings” as a symbol of royalty ordained for loyalty, and of honour for brilliant expectations and deeds! It takes being responsible to serve selflessly without being disgusted by the “odours” that emits from the dunghill. A leader is like a “refuse ground” or incinerator, he should therefore be ready to accept and condone “shits” (rubbish)from both the good, the bad, and the ugly. He should be ready to be spat on, criticized, challenged or confronted, and must be ready to accept blames of misinterpretations or conscious deeds.

No matter how responsible a king may be, he must be wise enough not to become a fool! A fool is always working without knowing or having depth (understanding), without direction or purpose or understanding the weight or essences of his calling or assignment. A fool will never attract the right followers; a fool will never be able to raise leaders; a fool will never be able to discern accurately; a fool is not a deep thinker; a fool is too full of him/herself; he/she is weak without caution; a fool forgets he has a source, because he is easily carried away by public opinions and applauds; A fool believes in autocracy (absolute power), not recognizing the importance of his people (followers); a fool is greedy, selfish, wasteful, lazy, slow, gives up too soon, inconsistent, and incautious; if he fails to work on his folly to become wise, he would die untimely or fade out in no time, he has no tune of music, and no class at all! When a leader is working and no one is following him, then he is worthy to be called a failure, because he is simply working for nothing, on nothing, and with nothing.

iv.   Apart from the aforementioned, a king must NEVER VALUE HIS OWN LIFE OVER HIS PEOPLE. A king must always be ready to surrender, give or sacrifice his life for the betterment and liberation of his people, case study of King Saul and David in the Holy Book of Life. The life of his people must be his topmost priority in his scale of preference. He must never sleep before his people, the comforts of his people must be his top desire. The king fights for the interests of his people in diverse battle fields, while his people are in the comforts of their homes expecting good results from their representative(s), their so-called SERVING-HANDS! Nothing must be too valuable for him to release. It has been given unto him to be given.

v.     No matter his level, size or stature, a king must NEVER GIVE UP TOO SOON!

Ban on Sales, Consumption of Sachet Alcoholic Drinks Still in Force, Says NAFDAC



Director General of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Prof. Moji Adeyeye, has reaffirmed that the ban on the sale and consumption of sachet alcoholic beverages in the country is still in force.

Adeyeye announced this on Wednesday during a press briefing in Lagos.

She said: “The ban on sachet alcohol is a ministerial directive and the ban still remains until the ministers respond. The meeting last week Thursday is a continuation of the discussion.

“The outcome of the meeting is that the ministers should write a memo to the Speaker (of Reps) and the House (of Reps), and the Representative of the Speaker, Prof Jake Dan-Azumi then said we should continue the discussion after the recess of the House members in July. So, the discussion continues.”

The Deputy Spokesman for the House of Representatives, Philip Agbese, disclosed last Friday that the House and NAFDAC resolved to lift the ban on the sale and consumption of sachet alcoholic beverages.

Agbese said the resolution to temporarily lift the ban was reached after a meeting between the House Committee and NAFDAC officials.

He said the lifting of the ban would end when the economy fully recovers from its current strain.

On February 1, 2024, NAFDAC commenced the enforcement of the ban on the importation, manufacture, distribution, sale and use of alcoholic beverages in sachets, PET, and glass bottles of 200ml and below.

The NAFDAC DG said the decision was based on the recommendation of a high-powered committee of the Federal Ministry of Health, NAFDAC, Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, and the industry represented by the Association of Food, Beverages and Tobacco Employers, Distillers and Blenders Association of Nigeria, in December 2018.

However, the move to enforce the ban has generated repeated protests by distillers and labour unions, who said the ban would cost 500,000 workers their jobs, and ruin N800bn investments.

Meanwhile, medical experts warned that lifting the ban on alcoholic beverages will lead to acute health complications, increased road traffic accidents, increased risk of abuse of alcohol, liver problems, heart-related problems, and cancers, among others.

Court Denies Suspended DCP Abba Kyari Bail



Justice Emeka Nwite of the Abuja Federal High Court has denied suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, bail.

In his ruling, the judge held that Kyari’s bail is at the discretion of the court in line with section 161 (2) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act.

The judge ruled that Kyari had not shown any evidence to warrant the court granting him bail.

On May 22, the judge had granted the former boss of the Intelligence Response Team, IRT, temporary two-week bail to bury his mother.

However, the two weeks were extended by a week upon an application filed by Mr. Kyari for an extension of the bail.

On June 1, Kyari perfected the bail conditions and was released the same day.

At today’s proceedings, Justice Emeka Nwite refused to extend his earlier order but granted accelerated hearing in the case.

Kyari was detained following his arrest on February 14, 2022, by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency for alleged involvement with an international drug cartel.

He, along with four members of the Police Intelligence Response Team—Sunday Ubia, Bawa James, Simon Agirigba, and John Nuhu—was arraigned on March 7, 2022.

Two suspected drug traffickers, Chibunna Umeibe and Emeka Ezenwanne, who were arrested at Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu, were also charged.

While Kyari and the IRT members pleaded not guilty, Umeibe and Ezenwanne pleaded guilty and were convicted.
