RCCG Responds to News of Minister who committed Suicide in Abuja

The Redeemed Christian Church of God has responded to the viral news of the suicide of a supposed music

minister in the church.

Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, who is the Head, Media and Public relations said the deceased, Michael Arowosaiye, had left the church since 2017, but was still coming to minister in the church, because one of his brothers is a choir coordinator in one of the provinces of the church, thus always inviting the deceased for ministrations.

Read his response:

The attention of the leadership of the RCCG has been drawn to reports of the death of one Mr. Michael Arowosaiye said to have committed suicide in Abuja on Tuesday May 14, 2019.

The report which has been trending on the social media and has also featured in the newspapers, said the man decided to take his own life after going into depression.

While the RCCG leadership sympathises with the family of the deceased, it has become necessary to clarify the mis-information and absolute falsehood in the report.

The said Mr. Michael Arowosaiye was not a minister in the RCCG. He was a singer and a keyboardist in one of our Youth Parishes in Abuja until 2017 when he left for another ministry.

His movement to another ministry notwithstanding, Michael, through his elder brother who is presently one of the coordinators of the RCCG Youth Choir, continued to get invitation to minister in RCCG programmes.

He had accommodation problem in 2018 and though he was no longer in the RCCG, a family in the Mission gave him the Boy’s Quarters of their house in Sunnyvale Estate in Lokogoma FCT, which was where he lived till the unfortunate suicide incident.

It is therefore untrue to refer to him as a Minister in the RCCG. It is also misleading and absolutely incorrect to create the impression that RCCG does not care for its Members and Ministers. The RCCG is in the forefront among organizations with robust welfare package in Nigeria.

I will do my best to explain what really happened in MMM Zimbabwe in order to calm panic in the mind of misinformed MMM participants.

MMM Zimbabwe offers 100% mavro growth in 30days. This was implemented to attract participants due to the economic hardship in the country.

This mavro growth for those of us in business is called market penetration.

Again their mavro was never frozen just like ours in Nigeria which multiplies for 15 days and also freezes for that long before withdrawal.

What happened in Zimbabwe is an implementation of what is already going on in Nigeria. MMM has seen that they don’t need no market penetration to attract participants. The mavro growth was reduced from 100% to 20%. 10% below what we are getting in Nigeria(30%).

And the mavro is also frozen for 14days just as its been done in Nigeria. The Nigerian Model works perfectly fine and MMM is trying to implement it globally.

So there is no collapse of any structure, its just a remodelling of what is already in place in Nigeria.

Again, this is what happened in South Africa in April.

They reduced their mavro growth from 50% or so to 30% and 20% with other schemes like lotteries introduced. And I can categorically tell you that the South Africa MMM is growing faster and better than ever after that change and reduction in mavro growth.

Some other points to note is: The writer of that piece, has absolutely no knowledge of how MMMbworks, and the main aim of it is to cause panic. Zimbabwe MMM is still going on even with the 80% decrease in mavro growth.

_Did anyone lose their money? NO!_

What happened is when you pledge 10k, instead of getting 20k reward in 30days, which is 100% reward, you get 12k which is 20% reward. They are still rewarded with 2k.

In Nigeria, we get 3k reward for 10k pledge. So did anyone lose their money?

Absolutely NOT!

Has it stopped MMM Zimbabwe from continuing? Not at all.

Hence, the Nigerian Model of MMM Works perfectly so there is no cause for alarm or panic.

Need I remind us that MMM Nigeria is the strongest in the world as at today. We have a spirit of moving mountains.

This man wants himself sold in Abuja; so disturbing.

Please come o, what could have made this young man to want to sell himself?

I met him at the motor park in Nyanya Abuja, on my way to work. He was so serious to want to sell himself.

What has led him to this disturbing decision?

I tried asking him though, he told me of the frustrations and the helplessness he’s daily facing.

You may wish to contact me to contact him, (lol). Not funny sha.


TINUBU, ONDO STATE governorship election, ONDO STATE gubernatorial, inec, primary election, senator borofice,

To all keen observers of the political activities and romance in Ondo State, one thing should be of great interest: the plurality of aspirants jostling for the most coveted seat in the Sunshine State, all of whom are eminently qualified to provide governance and economic policies that may rescue the State from going bankrupt in the nearest future. 
Equally interesting is the the fact that two political parties have equal likelihood of winning the gubernatorial election slated for 26th of November, 2016.
Surprisingly and expectedly, the battle for the ticket of the All Progressives Congress among the over 20 aspirants has assumed a dangerous dimension in the last few days. This is primarily caused by the alleged preference of the National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for a particular aspirant and alleged doctoring of the delegates’ list by the State Chairman of the party to favour another aspirant. While both the National leader and the State Chairman of the party had dispelled the allegations, there is always an element of truth in every rumour. 

One thing that is certain is that the good people of Ondo State have a way of rejecting any form of imposition of unpopular candidates and this will continue to be until His kingdom come. 
(History has it, that) In the build up to the 1979 general elections, the late sage Chief Obafemi Awolowo and his political associate, Late Chief Adekunle Ajasin, both flew to Oka Akoko to impose late Chief Olukoju as the candidate of the UPN for the House of Assembly election against the wish of the people of Oka. So convinced of their reasons for not wanting Chief Olukoju of blessed memory, the people of Oka were led by some prominent persons, most of whom are already in the great beyond, out of the popular UPN in the region to the unpopular NPN to pursue their interest in the emergence of Late Hon Folayegbe. Oka therefore became the only constituency that produced opposition to the ruling UPN in the old Ondo State. The leaders of that struggle, most of whom were civil servants, were dealt with by Governor Adekunle Ajasin but they were happy to have had their wish done and one of them, Late Hon Ogedengbe, a victimized Secondary school principal at that time, would later be appointed Minister of the Federal Republic by President Shehu Shagari. The leaders of the party came to impose but the electorates had their ways. 
In 2003, late Chief Adefarati was imposed on us by the leaders of AD who are mostly Afeniferes, but the good people of Ondo State opted instead for late Dr Olusegun Agagu. 
In 2007, Ebora of Africa politics, the only Baba Iyabo well known to all, Oloye Aremu Olusegun Obasanjo, was in Akure to impose late Agagu on the good people of Ondo State, but my people decided to take money from their slim purses to finance the election of the incumbent governor WHO COULD NOT HIDE HIS FEELINGS AT CAMPAIGN GROUNDS BY ALWAYS CRYING AT THE SIGHT OF THE CROWD WHO WERE BENT ON ENSURING HIS VICTORY AT THE POLL WITHOUT FINANCIAL INDUCEMENT. 
2012 is still very fresh in our memories when the Lagos candidate failed woefully even at his poling unit. The rest of the story we all know. 
If the man at the Bourdillon, Oko Senator Oluremi, the Jagaban of Nigeria politics, feels that his preferred candidate is the best for the job, the APC delegates in Ondo State tell him who they feel is the right man by the ballot on the 27th of this month. After all, the essence of elections is for the people to choose who to govern them and never to choose who to lead them to worship a godfather.
Tinubu is a human being like all of us who has the right to associate with any person of his choice. He has not done anything wrong under the law or in the temple of morality. Stop insulting him who is a great achiever and a great actor in the democracy we all enjoy today.
