When IAAF Challenges God

THE Holy Bible tells us in Genesis Chapter 1 and verse 27 that God created man in his own image. And in Chapter 2 and verse 18, we were equally told how God created woman as “a help meet” when He found out that it was not good for the man to be alone. In other words, God created man and woman but the woman came out of the man. Naturally some, if not all substances, found in man is equally found in woman. However, biologically some cases exist where some human beings have complete or partial reproductive organs and produces gametes normally associated with both male and female sexes. That is the case with hermaphrodites. We once had a case like that in our sports when Iyabo Abade who competed as a female footballer was discovered to have both male and female reproductive organs. ...

APC Queries BOT Member Who Declared Support For Atiku

The Plateau chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has queried Yahaya Kwande, elder statesman and member of the party’s Board of Trustees (BOT), over alleged anti-party activities. Latep Dabang, the party’s state chairman, who signed the query, asked Mr Kwande to explain why he attended a political rally organised by the rival Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Jos, on September 18.

Bolanle Ambode Committed Sacrilege And Should Apologise — African Church Bishop

What relationship exists between The African Church and the Chapel of Christ the Light? The chapel belongs to the Lagos State Government, but it is being managed by the entire Christian body and, specifically, the various blocs that form the Christian Association of Nigeria. In CAN, there are five blocs. The African Church belongs to the Christian Council of Nigeria, which is one of the blocs. The position of the Presiding Chaplain of the Chapel is rotated among the blocs to avoid any disharmony in the body of Christ. So, it is our turn to produce the Presiding Chaplain. Venerable Taiwo, who is from this (Ikeja) diocese, was the chaplain for three years and after the three years he applied to become the presiding chaplain. He was interviewed and discovered to be qualified. He was...

“Buhari Has No Business Being The President” – Farooq Kperogi

What’s all these annoyingly false Manichean binaries people are erecting between an “evil” National Assembly and a “benign” Aso Rock! Both Aso Rock and the National Assembly are equally evil, corrupt, obtuse, and inept. Saraki is a cold, calculating, corrupt conman who destroys everything that comes in his way and Buhari is a self-centered, insensitive, naïve, and clueless man who has no business being president. The politics and choices of both men conspire to drag the nation to the pit. Saraki’s astonishingly gargantuan corruption is matched by Buhari’s unparalleled profligacy. We have a supposedly “frugal” president whose first priority upon being sworn in as president was to build a multi-million naira vanity “helipad” for himself in his hometown, who spent millions of dollars to tr...

Sex Scandal: Is Apostle Suleman Scared To Go To Court

I keep wondering why Apostle Suleman is scared to go to court. A woman (Stephanie Otobo) accused you of having a secret affair with her and terminating her pregnancy without her knowledge; this is defamation of character. The woman has continually given the police the go ahead to investigate all her claims, but the Apostle keeps using his influence and power as a pastor to handle the matter, without going to court to handle it properly. Why is he scared to go to church? Some time last week, he prophesied that Stephanie Otobo would confess within 48 hours, but we still haven't heard any confessions from the lady. Then he went and got the girl's mother to confess that her daughter lied against him, even though there is a an audio recording on Youtube where the woman said she has met the...
