“GOD IS A POLITICIAN” says SAMUEL ADEYEMI AS HE ORGANIZES ANOTHER LIFE CHANGING SOCIETAL PROGRAM.
We got to meet with Mr. Samuel Adeyemi, motivational speaker, political activist, minister
and life coach He speaks about a political party ANRP as Nigeria’s alternative!
SAM ADE PROGRESSIVE ACHIEVERS SOCIETY (SAPAS), an organisation that creates awareness and embark on revolutionary teachings and actions in maintaining sanity in the society embarks on another life changing empowerment program spearheaded by the founder, Samuel Adeyemi. Let’s hear from the horses’ mouth.
CAN WE MEET YOU SIR?
I am Samuel Adeyemi born into the family of Pastor and Mrs Joshua Olanrewaju Adeyemi at Plateau State, Jos.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR STATE OF ORIGIN, EARLY LIFE AND EDUCATION
I hail from Kwara State, Oro Ago in Ifelodun Local government. My primary and secondary school education are Command Children School and Command Day Secondary School Ibadan respectively after which I proceeded to the higher institution; University of Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria where I bagged a degree in Bachelor of Science in Human Anatomy.
While on campus, I served as the assistant drama coordinator in Redeemed Christian Fellowship, UITH campus, Kwara state among other leadership positions. Suffice to say, I was actually involved in school politics.
Majorly reading motivational books and writing articles
ARE YOU A POLITICIAN?
We all are politicians. Politics is everywhere even in the church. You see, politics is pure, it only depends on who you are. It becomes dirty when used negatively.
THAT MEANS YOU ARE A POLITICIAN RIGHT?
yes i am.
SO TELL US ABOUT YOUR FORTHCOMING PROGRAMME
Well, it depends on your view. It’s not just a political program. It is actually an empowerment program to sensitize the youth to make impact in the society. However, it is also coined towards politics too. Is there anything wrong in that? EVEN GOD IS A POLITICIAN. He said, “let us make man in our image”. That is a democratic statement. Same God sent Jesus to this world to create a government of freedom, salvation and peace against oppressors and draw men to him. That is what politics is about.
The program will take place on Saturday 10th March, 2018 at God of Flesh and Spirit Ministry, Delace Estate, Mpape, Abuja. Nigeria. Time is 9am prompt. Every member of the society irrespective of age and religion is free and qualify to attend the life-changing initiative program.
“It is free, no gate fee attached to it. So, we expect you to invite as much as you can. Let’s come together and discuss youths engagement. Enough of burning megabytes and subscription on all social media with empty arguments. Get active in political movement. Besides, I am a registered member of a political party called ABUNDANT NIGERIA RENEWAL PARTY. This party is Nigeria’s alternative. The “money bags” parties have failed this country. As youths and those with youthful minds, permit me to say, Our “mumu” don do! (smiles). It’s time to vote for fresh minds, those who are willing to serve and give back to the country not those who have a mind of inheriting the “national cake”. To join the party, i’ll drop my phone number for directions. Get your voters card and don’t sit down complaining. Politics will do you if you don’t do politics.
BEING A RELIGIOUS LEADER, HOW DO YOU FEEL VENTURING INTO POLITICS, (AS A MAN OF GOD)?
And what are you? I am interested in politics because I want to create and make a change in educational system. Though I have started in my “big” way but I need a better platform. Our educational system needs a revolution. We can’t be training graduates full of theoretical knowledge and become redundant in the society. I feel change has to begin from our secondary schools.
TELL US ABOUT SAPAS AND WHAT WE SHOULD EXPECT IN THE COMING PROGRAM.
First, I must say, it’s a life changing empowerment program cum political program for the entire populace. The theme appears to be only for youths but alas, no! It’s for everyone who is useful because when you are useful, you are youthful. The theme as it were is BUILDING THE YOUTH, BUILDING THE SOCIETY. We have a guest speaker HONOURABLE NIMI WALSON JACK from Port-Harcourt who will be enlightening the audience on the need to be involved in Politics to eradicate the evil agenda of those who do not wish the country well. Everyone who wants to make impact in the society is welcomed. I will also be speaking on the topic; “LIVING A LIVELY LIFE” a revolutionary teaching for everyone to be involved in their passion such as governance, ministry, business, talents discovery and so on. Side attractions include Auditioning for actors and actresses, presentation of certificate for passionate films academy graduates, food competition and recharge cards (depending on the organising committee).
Some goals of SAPAS include:
Eliminating social vices in the society
Giving scholarships to students
Establishing ultramodern building where empowerment and vocational skills can be imbibed into youths.
Her VISION is transforming society and making people’s passion their profession while the MISSION is to successfully impact and transform the society through empowered teachings and practical resolutions for a good reliable community. This is penned down as a result of my favourite quote that says “Amount of life live is not in duration but in donation; this always triggers me to do what is right and also to make something special for my generation.
WHAT HAS BEEN THE TURNOUT OF THE PREVIOUS PROGRAMMES AND EVENTS ORGANIZED BY SAPAS
In view of the previous events, i’ll say it has been great and very resourceful. The support and attendance has been considerably good.
WHAT’S YOUR ADVICE TO THE PRESENT DAY GOVERNMENT?
If we want a society of peace, we must add positive values and encourage those who are talented not for insanity but to create sanity in the nation.
WHAT’S YOUR REASON FOR FOCUSING SO MUCH ON TALENTS?
Well, I love talented individuals. I am multitalented though I set priorities. Being a drama minister (having gone through training under the tutelage of Oreofe Williams popularly known as AWO JESU in the south west, Ben Ope Johnson(one of the best cinematographer in Nigeria that shot the JOHNSONS on DSTV) among other seminars. I have written, acted and directed several stage plays and shot films to the glory of God. I am also a film editor. In recent times, I have organized seminars here in Abuja as a means of touching lives and impacting my society through the help of God under the umbrella of SAM ADE PROGRESSIVE ACHIEVERS SOCIETY in collaboration with PASSIONATE FILMS.
Meanwhile I have spoken on politics severally, human relationship, children education, adult education, faith based teachings and even on religion. I am currently undergoing a training to have a wider knowledge on various religious issues including the African traditional religion so as to give caution and reverence to them. This is one major challenge among some religious people. But sincerely, I have a bias for talents. Our last program has a theme: ORIGINALITY, THE YOU IN YOU and I spoke on BECOMING THE REAL YOU aside other speakers. Prior to this one, the theme for that of 2016 is: CHILDREN, YOUTHS AND IMMORALITY. THE ROLE OF PARENTS AND GOVERNMENT and I spoke on MAINTAINING SANITY THROUGH PROPER PARENTING
WHAT’S YOUR ADVICE TO NIGERIAN YOUTHS
Seek knowledge. Get education. Don’t be a mediocre. Don’t just be religious but be useful to your society too. Today, I see lots of youths roaming about thinking manna falls from heaven. Waiting for a “miracle bank alert” where you did not work. That is fraud! An idle mind is the devil’s workshop. Also as youths, “You don’t shut the eyes and mouth of people by mere words but action. A thunder strikes without a foot print but rainfalls and makes itself recognized”( SAMUEL ADEYEMI). Don’t give up on your vision!
This is one of the reasons why i am contesting for the position of a Councilor in Dutse Alhaji Ward 7, Bwari Area Council, Abuja, and i am using this opportunity to solicit to the Nigerian Youths for their support. i believe strongly that the future is here.
YOUR ADVICE TO OTHER NGOs
Government won’t do it alone. Let’s not give up.
