NIGERIANS WANTED ”CHANGE” AND NOW WE HAVE GOT IT. NO-ONE SHOULD COMPLAIN BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT OUR PEOPLE WANTED. THOSE OF US THAT WARNED THE COUNTRY THAT THIS WOULD HAPPEN WERE INSULTED AND LAMPOONED. NOW WE HAVE TO LIVE WITH THE CONSEQUENCES OF OUR CHOICE FOR THE NEXT FOUR YEARS. WELCOME TO THE NEW NIGERIA. WELCOME TO ”CHANGE”.
The white man came here and met our ancestors answering: Chukwu, Chukwumerije, Uthando, Thandaza, Chukwuemeka, Iyanuoluwa, Chinonso, Chiebuka, Olisa, Igwe, Obasi, Orimolade etc.
While they were answering: Mr. Green, Wilberforce, Mungo Park, Mr. Bill, Mr. Bush and so many other funny names.
Yet, they claimed our ancestors did not know God and some people believed them.
How can Mr. Wilberforce teach Nze Chukwudi about God? How can Mr. Greenfield teach Thandaza about praying to God. How can Mungo Park teach Uthando about the love of God. Or Bush teach Afolorunso about the protection of God. How can Mr. Bill teach Iyanuoluwa about the Mercy of God?
That they brought Church does not mean our fore fathers were ignorant of the Supreme Being.
Our culture and that of Israeli share so many similar peculiarities, why one will be idolatry and another godly still amazes me.
Our fore fathers weren’t as evil as projected by the colonizers. They might have made one or two plunders out of the ignorance of their time. But, so also did the ancestors of the colonizers
Africa is a great continent. Africa loves God. Africa is RISING.
The Commission in a letter to the church cited the fact that, there is a pending court appeal over the Leadership tussle between Rev. Chidi Okoroafor and Rev.Prof Paul Emeka who was reportedly suspended over allegation of embezzling 20 Million Naira.
Recall that a group within Assemblies of God Church Nigeria under the aegis of Ambassadors of the Kingdom Suspended the embattled General Superintendent, Rev. Prof. Paul Emeka. The group went further to ask the CAC to delete Prof.Emeka’s name from the church Certificate of Incorporation.
However on April 30th,after allegedly misleading the commission, the group went ahead to float a new church with the name THE ASSEMBLIES OF GOD CHURCH.
By this letter to the group, Africa Thisday wonders if Rev. Prof.Paul Emeka will now be recognized as the General Superintendent of Assemblies of God Church until Supreme Court rules on the case.
News24 reported that Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir cannot be arrested while in Sandton, the area hosting the African Union summit, as the area is still under the jurisdiction of the organisation, quoting the South African Institute of International Affairs.
“As we know, because the AU was holding a conference in Sandton, that area has been declared as belonging to AU which is standard,” spokesperson Hopewell Radebe said.
“So this means no SA police members can go there and arrest anyone for the duration of the conference.”
Radebe said if Al-Bashir was to be arrested it would either be once he had moved out of the Sandton area or after the summit had been declared over, depending whether he was still around by then.
The High Court in Pretoria will on Monday hear an application on whether South African authorities can arrest him.
On Sunday, Judge Hans Fabricius ordered that the Department of Home Affairs ensure that all points of entry and exit be informed that Al-Bashir was not allowed to leave until the SA Litigation Centre’s (SALC) application that South Africa arrest him, is concluded.
The SALC wants South Africa to enforce two warrants for Al-Bashir’s arrest issued by the International Criminal Court (ICC) in 2009 and 2010 relating to alleged war crimes and genocide.
Al-Bashir is in South Africa to attend the AU summit.
However. there have been conflicting reports about whether al-Bashir was still in South Africa or not.
Sudan’s Information Minister Ahmed Bilal Osman told Bloomberg on Sunday evening that al-Bashir had left South Africa and was on his way home.
“The president finished his business and is coming back home.
“Al-Bashir went to South Africa with complete guarantees that it will respect the African position regarding the ICC,” he reportedly said.
A Sudanese presidency official said Al-Bashir was still in Johannesburg on Monday morning and would leave later in the day.
Africa Thisday condemns any attempt to arrest any African leader attending the African Union Summit by the West as we consider it disrespectful from the west. No more shall the West waste Africa.
NIGERIANS CELEBRATE PRESIDENT GOODLUCK’S SPIRIT OF SPORTSMANSHIP. CHIDI MARTINS WROTE:
TO PRESIDENT GOODLUCK JONATHAN
Even in the face of “defeat” you did not disappoint those of us that believe in your maturity, sincerity, ability and humility which are rare leadership qualities that set you apart; the very reason why some of us kept supporting you ever till the very end.
An Achiever You Are!
A True National Hero You Are!
You have written your name on the sands of time, but not as much as in the hearts of men.
History, time and generation next will judge you right for putting our national interest, peace and unity far above your personal ambition like you have always said….”You Stole The Show Again”.
Being the first to congratulate your opponent General Buhari, even before the final result was announced, for us it was super heroic and a mark of a true statesman.
It is better to lose like a winner, than win like a loser…..YES! “It is much better priced, to lose the war and win the peace; than win the war and lose the peace”.
You have yet again set a standard in Nigerian Democratic Horizon….THUS; WE SALUTE YOUR HUMBLE COURAGE STILL!
– BUHARI WON THE ELECTION!
– GOODLUCK WON OUR HEART!!
– NIGERIANS WON THE PEACE!!!
GOD BLESS NIGERIA!!!!
Dr. Charles Awuzie (@pastorcharlesc) had earlier tweeted “I nominate President Goodluck Jonathan for a Nobel Peace Prize.
Share if you agree.” and the tweet is going viral on both twitter and facebook.
I thank you all for turning out en-masse for the March 28 General Elections.
I promised the country free and fair elections. I have kept my word. I have also expanded the space for Nigerians to participate in the democratic process. That is one legacy I will like to see endure.
Although some people have expressed mixed feelings about the results announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), I urge those who may feel aggrieved to follow due process based on our constitution and our electoral laws, in seeking redress.
As I have always affirmed, nobody’s ambition is worth the blood of any Nigerian. The unity, stability and progress of our dear country is more important than anything else.
I congratulate all Nigerians for successfully going through the process of the March 28th General Elections with the commendable enthusiasm and commitment that was demonstrated nationwide.
I also commend the Security Services for their role in ensuring that the elections were mostly peaceful and violence-free.
To my colleagues in the PDP, I thank you for your support. Today, the PDP should be celebrating rather than mourning. We have established a legacy of democratic freedom, transparency, economic growth and free and fair elections.
For the past 16 years, we have steered the country away from ethnic and regional politics. We created a Pan-Nigerian political party and brought home to our people the realities of economic development and social transformation.
Through patriotism and diligence, we have built the biggest and most patriotic party in Nigerian history. We must stand together as a party and look to the future with renewed optimism.
I thank all Nigerians once again for the great opportunity I was given to lead this country and assure you that I will continue to do my best at the helm of national affairs until the end of my tenure.
I have conveyed my personal best wishes to General Muhammadu Buhari.
May God Almighty continue to bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
I thank you all.
Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR

The Presidential Spokesman, Reuben Abati had said that the card reader is unable to capture President Goodluck’s Permanent Voters Card in Bayelsa whereas General Buhari’s Voter’s Card had no hitches at the polling station. There are speculations that the opposition could have something to do with the the technical and security breaches.
This is surely Nigeria’s most controversial election.
