EDO, Nigeria (LifeSiteNews) – The governor of the Nigerian state of Edo, Godwin Obeski, who works closely with the World Bank, announced to his citizens that starting next week, proof-of-vaccination will be required to enter churches, mosques, banks, and any other public gathering spaces.

“From the second week of September, people [will] not be allowed to worship at churches and mosques without showing proof of their vaccination cards at the gates,” Obeski told the press.

“We have made adequate arrangements with security to prevent anybody who does not have a vaccination card from accessing any of these events,” he added.

The vaccine passport system, which requires Nigerian citizens in Edo to present their official vaccine documentation to access churches, will also apply to “banking services” and “gatherings” such as wedding receptions and parties.

Patrick Henningsen, an independent geopolitical analyst and journalist, posted the video of the announcement on Twitter, along with his own opinion about the new Nigerian directive.

“They’re being leaned on by international powers. It’s now verbatim the end times narrative. I think they’ll have problems enforcing this in #Nigeria though,” he stated.

“Thank you for being the first foreigner to report this accurately. And no, it’s not enforceable, and if they use strong-arm tactics they will unleash a dragon. Nigerians are a stiff-necked people,” replied a Nigerian Twitter user.

Nigeria is one of the least vaccinated countries in the world, with just roughly 1 percent of the nation’s 212 million people having been “fully vaccinated.”

Nigeria has 36 states in the country, and Edo is one of two states that have decided to implement any type of vaccine passport system.

Obeski, who has been the governor of Edo since 2016, has “a robust and sustainable relationship with the World Bank.”

According to the Vanguard Daily, a large Nigerian newspaper, the relationship with the World Bank that Obeski brought to Edo relies on “a regime of strict adherence to rules and terms guiding the execution of developmental projects, transparency, [and] accountability.”

“Adhering to these World Bank terms is a tall order, as project impact must be measured, contract terms such as cost, cycle and funding are set in stone while the financial books are open for transparency,” continued the paper.

In 2016, the year Obeski was elected, the World Bank shifted focus from previous efforts and came out with a new mission statement. According to the American Economic Association (AEA), the new goal, which continues today, is “reducing poverty” on a global scale.

Following this statement, the AEA published a paper to “discuss what the Bank does: how it spends money, how it influences policy, and how it presents its mission,” as well as explain the bank’s role in “facilitating international agreements.”

The World Bank, along with the World Economic Forum (WEF), are currently considered major players in the United Nations’ (UN) “Sustainable Development Goal 10” project, whose official mission is to “Reduce inequality within and among countries” – a goal the UN hopes to reach by 2030.

The UN project’s goal is to be achieved by:

  • The regulation and monitoring of global financial markets
  • Ensuring equal opportunity and reducing inequalities of outcome
  • Adopting policies, especially fiscal, wage and social protection policies, to progressively achieve greater equality
  • Facilitate orderly, safe, regular and responsible migration and mobility of people

More specifically, Section 3.8 of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 10 outline says that their efforts will ensure “essential medicines and vaccines for all.”

In Section 3.b.1, the outline states that their goal is to increase the “Proportion of the target population covered by all vaccines.”

This UN initiative, ran with the help of the World Bank and the WEF, works in tandem with another WEF global manipulation initiative, the Great Reset.

“The purpose of the Great Reset is the imposition of a health dictatorship aiming at the imposition of liberticidal measures, hidden behind tempting promises of ensuring a universal income and cancelling individual debt,” said Archbishop Carla Maria Viganò in a 2020 letter to then-president Donald Trump.

“But on our side, we have the Lord Almighty, the God of armies arrayed for battle, and the Most Holy Virgin, who will crush the head of the ancient Serpent. “If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Rom 8:31),” added the archbishop.
