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
Federal Republic of Nigeria

As Nigeria’s Boko Haram declares allegiance to ISIS, christians took to the social media platforms to state the difference between the message that christianity preaches and the message radical islam promotes.
Have your say: What is the difference between Christianity and Islam?
Can someone whose statements are loaded with VIOLENCE assure peace?
Can someone who promised he would ensure that SHARIA LAW gets to all part of the country tolerate people from other religion???
Can someone that asked MUSLIMS TO VOTE ONLY MUSLIM be voted for by other religion?
Can someone that put Shagari in HOUSE ARREST and DR Alex Ekwueme in PRISON be absolved of tribal sentiments?
Can someone who used retroactive laws to KILL PEOPLE be trusted with our lives? Can someone who says FIGHTING TERRORISM is against his people be allowed to be in charge of this country???
Can someone who executed 75% of PTF projects in the NORTH and distributed the remaining 25% among other regions when he was the PTF chairman be allowed to take charge of all projects in the country?
Can someone who as a military head of state who knows he would be overthrown but COULD NOT DO ANYTHING because his deputy was not around be classified as courageous? Can someone who says ACN is corrupt but because of his presidential ambition now surrounds himself with ACN thieves be ABLE TO FIGHT CORRUPTION?
Can someone who as head of PTF DID NOT KNOW how billions of Naira got missing be trusted with our entire wealth as president?
Can someone who could not allow the economics of demand, supply and internal production factors to determine the prices of commodities but used SOLDIERS TO FORCE price control be able to handle present economic challenges?
Can someone who did not allow his government be criticised and UNJUSTLY ARRESTED those who criticised his government be given that opportunity to lead again,etc?
Why did Gen. Ibrahim Babangida overthrow Buhari? For Power or to rescue Nigeria from the claws of Buhari?
•Turkey is in the present day Europe and partly in Asia minor.
•Apostle Paul was a citizen of Turkey because Tarsus exists in Turkey.
•Christianity existed in Turkey for about 1,023 years while Christianity has only existed in Nigeria for 172yrs starting from when Rev. Birch Freeman came to Badagry in 1842.
•The seven churches Jesus spoke to in Revelations 2 & 3 (Ephesus, Smyrna, Laodicea, Philadelphia, etc) existed in the old Turkey.
•The disciples were first called Christians in Turkey (Antioch)
•Turkey once had the largest Christian auditorium in Europe called Hagia Sophia in Constantinople.
•Mary the mother of Jesus was taken to Turkey by Apostle John and till date, her room has become a tourist centre.
•Present day Turkey now has 96%
muslims & 0.02% Christians (less than 130,000).
•The Hagia Sophia (once largest church in Europe) was taken over by muslims and converted to a mosque for over 400yrs and later used as an Islamic Museum.
WHY CHRISTIANITY COLLAPSED IN TURKEY!
•Emphasis on doctrinal differences
weakened the Turkish church.
•Rivalries amongst denominations
•Petty politics in church coupled with ethnic bias.
•The Turks were building big cathedrals instead of building men.
HOW IT HAPPENED!
•Osman Ghazi discovered the disunity amongst Christians and used it to fight a Jihad that led to a mass genocide of the Armenians, the Hellen and Turks of that day. Infact, the weapon of war used was designed by a Turkish Christian.
•Many Christian women converted to Islam to save their lives and some were raped.
•Osman Ghazi started the Ottoman empire which gave muslims political post and made it a religion of the state.
IS NIGERIA HEADING THE WAY OF TURKEY?
•Virtually all the mistakes the church in Turkey made, the Nigerian church has made it.
•We are building Cathedrals at the
expense of discipling men.
•Disunity amongst churches
•Ethnicity in the church
•Denominational rivalry, etc.
•Sharp division along doctrinal lines
•The spiritual foundation of Turkey is stronger than that of Nigeria and
Christianity existed for over 1000yrs in Turkey unlike ours which is just 172yrs but Islam Radicalism uprooted it. If it can happen in Turkey, it can also
happen IF we are not careful.
•The menace of Boko Haram has
destroyed a lot of churches in the north and it may take another 200yrs to evangelise Borno State alone.
•There is a secret agenda to Islamize Nigeria & other African nations as contained in Abuja declaration of 1989.
DON’T SAY IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE, IF WE DON’T RIGHT OUR WRONGS AS A CHURCH.
1. HEART-FELT Intercession and Prayer.
2. Aggressive evangelism – the terrorist reached out to the youths in the norths first and gave them AK-47 and bombs, if we had reached out to them on time, they will be carrying BIBLES today.
3. Mission support:-God is holding the church responsible for Boko Haram, yet we are blaming the government. If we had supported missions and missionaries, we would have those insurgents to Christ long ago.
4. Unity of the church is key in winning this battle.
5. Christian should be actively involve in politics with God’s agenda. The last but not the least christians should be actively involve in politics. Enough of these muslims political office holder with islamic agenda.
ARISE CHURCH & LET US DO THE NEEDFUL! AS 2015 ELECTIONS APPROACH IN NIGERIA, DON’T SELL JESUS LIKE JUDAS WITH YOUR VOTE. ON THE LAST DAY, HE WILL SHOW YOU YOUR RIGHT THUMB AND ASK YOU WHAT YOU DID WITH IT.

Controversial Nigerian Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka in his new year message to his congregation asked his people to vote out President Goodluck Jonathan and vote in General Buhari in the February general elections. Africa Thisday in this video presents to you a compilation of Rev. Mbaka’s words against and for the president. Watch and judge for yourself.
An AirAsia flight travelling from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore has lost contact with air traffic control, the company has said.
Indonesian media say 162 people were on board.
“AirAsia Indonesia regrets to confirm that flight QZ8501 from Surabaya to Singapore has lost contact with air traffic control at 07:24hrs this morning.
At the present time we unfortunately have no further information regarding the status of the passengers and crew members on board, but we will keep all parties informed as more information becomes available.” The company stated.
The aircraft was an Airbus A320-200 with the registration number PK-AXC.
Already, “search and rescue operations are in progress”.
Recall that on 8th of March 2014, Malaysian flight MH370 went missing with 239 people on board and was never found. Then three months later, precisely on 17th July 2014, MH17, another Malaysian flight was shot down killing all 283 passengers.
The missing of the AirAsia flight is another wound in the heart of Asian aviation. Malaysia is about 895.15 Miles away from Indonesia. If you travel with an airplane (which has average speed of 560 miles) between Indonesia to Malaysia,
It takes 1.6 hours to arrive. The whole of Asia mourns again.

The Army authorities yesterday accused an online media, Sahara Reporters, of working for the Boko Haram terror group.
The attention of the Nigerian Army was drawn to a publication on the website of Sahara Reporters with the caption “Nigerian Army Presents Unverified “Lt Col” To Refute Petition Against Military Hierarchy”.
In a statement issued by its director of public relations, Brigadier Olaleye Lajide, the Army dismissed a story published on the website of the Nigeria defence where it alleged that a serving officer, Lt Col Wende, petitioned the Army hierarchy.
It is noteworthy but sad and unfortunate that Sahara Reporters has committed itself to support for terrorism and fighting Nigeria, its people, its military and particularly the Nigerian Army.
Before Sahara Reporters published their purported document described as petition from Lt Col Wende, a serving Commanding Officer, the Nigerian Army conducted a thorough investigation on the document involving other security and intelligence agencies. The process confirmed that the serving officer was not the author of the petition. Yesterday, the officer dissociated himself from the so-called petition in a press conference he personally attended. While reputable media organizations were on hand to engage the officer, Sahara Reporters being a faceless medium, preferred to remain faceless and was not represented. Sahara Reporters sadly, but predictably, and in fulfilment of its support for terrorism published in its website a fabrication in which it referred to the officer as “unverified”.
They further said “Since the officer (Lt Col Wende) has clearly dissociated himself from the document, it makes sense that the so-called petition is the handiwork of Sahara Reporters. With time, terrorism in Nigeria and Sahara Reporters will be defeated by the collective will of the good people of Nigeria.”
The lingering leadership dispute that has factionalized the Assemblies of God Church Nigeria may have been put to rest as an Enugu High Court ruled on Thursday that Rev Prof Paul Emeka remains the authentic General Superintendent of Church.
It declared null and void, the purported meeting held on March 6 presided over by the retired General Superintendent of the Church, Rev Charles Osueke where he (Emeka) was allegedly suspended from office, even as it ordered those occupying offices illegally on account of the suspension to vacate without further delay.
Ruling in a suit brought by Emeka over the breach of his fundamental human rights, the Court presided over by Justice Anthony Onovo, held that he was never removed as the General Superintendent of the church, stressing that the meeting that took the decision was illegal as it was convoked without regard to the constitution of the church or law.
The Judge also frowned seriously over the refusal of a faction of the church led by the Assistant Superintendent, Rev Chidi Okoroafor to an injunction of the court on the matter of March 8 this year where it had ordered a return to status quo pending the determination of the matter.
On March 6, this year, a meeting by a group of members of the church called Ambassadors of the Kingdom presided over by the retired General Superintendent of the Church; Osueke had met and suspended Rev Emeka from office for alleged corruption and embezzlement.
It went further to appoint Okoroafor the acting General Superintendent and advised branches of the church nationwide to severe dealings with Paul and disallow him from using their pulpits anywhere to preach the gospel.
They further accused him of taking the church to court contrary to the stipulations of the church’s constitution.
Perturbed by the development, Emeka had on March 8 rushed to the Enugu High Court, where he filed a suit challenging the action of the group and order for return of status quo ante.
He had described the group as a breach of his fundamental rights to worship and fair hearing, stressing that the meeting where the action was held was unconstitutional as it did not follow laid down rules.
He further sought an order of court declaring every appointment made by the group as illegal as well as the restoration of his rights as the General Superintendent of the Church.
Ruling on the matter yesterday, Justice Onovo agreed that the March 6 meeting was illegal, null and void, stressing that the retired General Superintendent “usurped the powers of the incumbent General Superintendent to preside over the meeting”. He agreed that Paul Emeka’s constitutional and human rights were grossly violated.
The way about of Chidi Okoroafor is not known as he is believed to be hiding in shame.
When we explore the political and financial connections of terrorists, we find that these are not merely wayward fanatics operating in isolation, but that their channels penetrate to the upper reaches of power, in the governments of developed and developing countries, and outward into the nether regions of the occult and criminal underworlds.
The terrorist organisations across the world are shadows created by a ‘mega conspiracy’ operating from the criminal/occultic underworld to whom governments and governors are mere puppets. This is the conspiracy of the millennium.
Just for the sake of people who are new to the theories of conspiracy…The world has witnessed about 33 popular theories of conspiracy which turned out to be true ranging from:
*The Mafia: A secret crime society which was virtually unknown until the 1960s, when member Joe Valachi first revealed the society’s secrets to law enforcement officials. What was known was that organised crime existed, but not that the extent of their control included working with the CIA, politicians and the biggest businesses in the world.
Then there was Operation Mockingbird: Also in the 1950s to ’70s, a conspiracy theory that the CIA paid a number of well-known domestic and foreign journalists (from big-name media outlets like Time, The Washington Post, The New York Times, CBS and others) to publish CIA propaganda. The CIA also reportedly funded at least one movie, the animated “Animal Farm,” by George Orwell. The Church Committee finally exposed their activities in 1975.
Nigeria’s President has confirmed that the Nigerian chapter of the terrorist network has penetrated his cabinet. (There’s more to that statement than our minds could understand).
This millennium is witnessing an ‘unexposed’, ‘undisclosed’ and ‘unexpected’ conspiracy…as a result, the target of the conspirators lies vague while the entire world weeps helplessly at the cruel execution of their anti-mankind conspiracy.
This note would have achieved nothing if it fails to challenge you to ask more questions about terrorism…query the recent orchestration of terrorist attacks in the nations which go ‘uninvestigated’…Let our minds dig deeper far beyond our eyes can see and our minds could perceive…
The war on terrorism has lasted for decades yet it seems like the terrorists are on the winning side. World War 1 lasted only for 4 years, 1914-1918. In 1917, America joined the Allies and the next year, the war ended. In this war against terrorism, America is in the forefront yet the end of this war seem very far, why? Is it that America’s military in 1917 is stronger than their military in 2014 or just that this war against terrorism is a global mirage? Is there something the mainstream media is not telling us?
