Popular Filmmaker, Olu Micheals Clears The Air Over Misconceived Allegations Against Him
Against all the rumours going round on some microblogging handles about top actor and show promoter, Olu Micheals over using his highly reputed travels platform, Forbes Global Project International Limited, for fraudulence purposes, the actor has finally come out to lay all the matters to bear before newsmen on Monday, 09 August 2021.
Recall that some microblogging platforms (name withheld) raised allegations against the actors, based on unconfirmed complaints forwarded to them.
Speaking comprehensively about what transpired, Olu Michaels took time to explain the bottlenecks that come with visa application since the interruption of the deadly covid-19 virus and how the U.S and Canadian Governments have reduced the numbers of visas to be approved vis-à-vis countries of prospective tourists or intending students.
He reiterated the money-back policy of the company and urged affected customers to be patient with his brand as every customer who has been affected will be refunded.
On Sunday 25th of July 2021, a publication was made regarding myself (Olushola Micheals ) and Forbes global project international Ltd. I am making this post on behalf of myself and Forbes Global in order to explain and clarify things. Forbes Global Project has a money-back guarantee which means that if a client’s visa is denied and upon request by the client, we take the necessary steps to refund the client’s money between 4 to 8 weeks.
Unfortunately, in recent times, business instability and the harsh economic reality have caused us not to be consistent with the time frame for refund. However, we have always made certain that we stick to our refund policy.
Some Of our affected customers whose names and faces appeared on the Blog post and comment section of the recent publication must have been forced to engage with the Blog for the following reasons:
Firstly, since the Covid-19 pandemic broke out and more particularly from the start of the year 2020, the Canadian High commission reduced issuance of tourist visas and further in the year put it on hold totally. However, we continued to make applications even up until late 2020 and these applications were accepted along with the visa fee by the Embassy But no response was given for several months. As we speak, we still have quite a number of clients who have applied for Canadian tourist visas and to date, their applications are still pending at the embassy.
Some of the clients have been to our office requesting for a refund simply because they can’t wait forever. In response to their requests for a refund, we have initiated the process of refund. While some have been paid in full others have been paid in part, even as their applications are pending at the embassy.
Secondly, USA visa applicants are also affected by the effects of the global pandemic. Some of our clients have gotten their appointments while others are still waiting for appointment dates simply because there is no appointment-free date until 2022 both at the Lagos and Abuja offices. Despite the above, some of our clients have asked us for a refund as they are running out of patience for their interview dates. We are currently engaged in talks with all our affected clients and must confess that our businesses have been hurt by the negative publication.
Forbes project agrees that there are still quite a number of pending refunds to be made to the affected clients. However, we have never denied the fact that any client who is not pleased with our services has a right to request a refund. We have always pledged to refund our clients upon request. Some of our affected clients have been paid in cash while others have received post-dated cheques as proof of our pledge to refund. All We are asking for is your patience as we take urgent steps to remedy the situation.
We hereby use this medium to appeal to our esteemed clients to please bear with us as every request for refund will be attended to, in due time. To those we failed, we sincerely apologize, yes we aren’t totally exonerating ourselves, we ask for patience and forgiveness.
As an organization that deeply cares for its clients and their welfare, we apologize and appeal to our esteemed clients for their continued patience as we hope to serve you better in the coming days. To all our esteemed clients who are aggrieved by our shortcomings we ask that you forgive us. And for any further complaints, requests or need for clarification we would be happy to attend to you if you reach us through our usual communication channels.

Primate Ayodele Gives Out Five Cars, Buses, Tricycles, Others To Celebrate Birthday
The Leader Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele has given out five cars, five tricycles, five buses and more than N25 Million naira empowerment package to journalists, widows, needy, students to celebrate his birthday.
The massive event which was held yesterday Tuesday, 14th Of February 2023 at his Lagos church was also to mark the end of the prophet’s 17-day appreciation and philanthropic activities which started on Sunday, 29th Of January 2023.
The event had in attendance the president of the Nigeria football federation (NFF), Alhaji Ibrahim Gusau who declared the event opened, the chairman of the National drug and law enforcement agency (NDLEA), General Marwa, popular gospel musician, Yinka Alaseyori who serenade the crowd with her angelic melody, comedian Ayo Ajewole AKA Woli Agba who had the audience filled with laughter, popular nollywood actors and actresses, to mention a few.
Alhaji Ibrahim Gusau, while declaring the event open described Primate Ayodele as a true friend who has shown support for the football federation. He explained the circumstances that led to his meeting with the man of God, stating that Primate Ayodele played a huge role in his emergence as the NFF president.
‘’One journalist sent me a video of Primate Ayodele during a press conference speaking about the election in NFF. He mentioned some of the contestants and said finally to him, the person that will become the president is Ibrahim Gusau. The journalist was surprised because I am not a Christian and didn’t know the prophet as I don’t even stay in Lagos. Consistently, he stood on his word whenever he gives prophecies concerning football and to God be the glory, the election came and I won. I felt I should find time to appreciate the man of God for his support. He visited me in Abuja, we spoke and ate together so there is no way he will have an occasion like this and I will not be there, it means I don’t appreciate God. We will continually ask for your prayers and will not disappoint you.’’
Also, the NDLEA chairman, General Buba Marwa who sent a representative expressed his surprise at the many gifts shared by Primate Ayodele while noting that the man of God will be the first to show practical love on Valentine’s Day despite the scarcity crisis in the country. He therefore asked the man of God to organize programmes that will allow the NDLEA support.
‘’General Buba Marwa is very interested in working with you and he has asked me to say it publicly that you should set a motion, programmes that will make the NDLEA join you. This programme on a day like this when everyone is showing love especially at a time like this when there is scarcity, we need to appreciate Primate Ayodele for showing practical love, I have been hearing happy valentine’s day since morning but this is the first practical one I am seeing.’’
The height of the event was when three church members and two journalists including an editor with The Sun Newspaper and the prophet’s media aide, Osho Oluwatosin were called out for a car gift.
One of the recipients who is the youth president of the church, Monday Sunday couldn’t hold back tears from his eyes when Primate Ayodele called his name. The man of God mentioned that he has been dedicated to the church’s service and has given his best whenever it is necessary.
Also, the two accountants of the church who were recipients couldn’t hide his joy when Primate Ayodele announced their names. The prophet who rewards good deeds appreciated them for being transparent and trustworthy over the years.
The media aide, Osho Oluwatosin obviously didn’t expect to receive a car gift from the prophet. He was visibly shaking when he was called upon to receive his car gift from Primate Ayodele.
Also, other dedicated church members were given tricycles and mini-buses for their support to the church.
Apart from these, a cheque of N200,000 was presented each to 11 journalists to empower them for supporting the man of God over the years. Primate Ayodele in his philanthropic attitude promised to pay the sum of N350,000 for one of the empowered journalists who has issues with his sight.
Furthermore, the widows and less privileged were not forgotten in the largesse. Several of them were given food items, accommodation fee, grinding machines, home appliances, to mention but a few.
The youths were also not left out as about 23 students were given scholarships to study in tertiary institutions. To show his generosity further, the man of God presented cheques to some churches to purchase landed properties.
In recognition and appreciation of his impact in the society, the Theatre arts and motion pictures practitioners (TAMPAN) led by famous Nollywood actor, Owolabi Ajasa made Primate Ayodele their grand patron and spiritual father.
It is worthy of note that Primate Ayodele has always done massive empowerment to celebrate his birthdays on every 14th of February. In previous years, journalists and church members have been given cars, tricycles, scholarships, to mention a few.
