'Kissing a bride during church wedding is unholy and should be banned' - Anglican cleric says
The Bishop of Niger Delta West Diocese, Rt Rev. (Dr) Emmanuel Oko-Jaja, has said permitting couples to kiss inside the church during their wedding service is unscriptural, unholy and should be banned.According to Oko-Jaja, such practice of couples kissing during their wedding service, promotes immorality and corrupts the mind of teenagers that are in church to witness what is supposed to be a holy solemnization. The clergyman said this while delivering his sermon at the St Mark’s Anglican Church, Biogbolo in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State on Sunday December 9th.“The practice where couples are allowed to kiss in the church during wedding service is unscriptural. I wish to direct clergymen and church workers in this Diocese to guard against such unholy conducts. According to the scriptures, the church is not supposed to serve as a place meant to promote immorality but encourage people to uphold and practice Christian virtues with a view to winning souls for Christ.” he saidThe post 'Kissing a bride during church wedding is unholy and should be banned' - Anglican cleric says appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.

EFCC operatives raid Atiku’s sons’ apartment in Abuja
 EFCC operatives raidAtikus sons apartment in AbujaOperatives of EFCC last weekend, reportedly raided a building housing an apartment occupied by two sons of Atiku Abubakar. According to a report by Premium Times, the raid on Aliyu and Mustapha Atiku-Abubakar’s residence in the posh Maitama neighbourhood comes a day after claims emerged that Atiku’s running mate, Peter Obi, had his bank accounts frozen by federal authorities. Paul Ibe, a spokesperson for the Atiku Abubakar family, confirmed the search to Premium Times, saying the officers who conducted the “grievous act of intimidation” were “unable to find anything implicating.”   Neither Aliyu nor Mustapha was in town when the anti-graft agents arrived as both are said to be studying for master’s degrees at foreign universities but those with whom they share the building were reportedly taken to the EFCC office and some of their properties confiscated.The report said, “when the EFCC officers arrived on Saturday, they met Theodore Orji’s sons at home, because they both live in the same building. They asked to see the apartment of Aliyu and Mustapha Atiku-Abubakar but Theodore Orji’s sons refused to show them, saying their friends are out of the country, anyway.The EFCC operatives then said they have intelligence that a large cache of dollars had been kept in the apartment which they had come to recover. They forcibly searched the apartment, but there was no hard currency or anything that could be construed as fraudulently damning.”  The post EFCC operatives raidAtikus sons apartment in Abuja appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.

Chinese police arrest over 100 Christians and church leaders in latest move against unofficial religious groupsPolice have detained dozens of churchgoers, leaders, congregation members and activists of one of China's most prominent Protestant "house" churches, in the latest government action against unregistered religious groups.   Teams of police and state security officials in the south-western city of Chengdu came to the homes of leaders and members of the Early Rain Covenant Church late on Sunday, December 9th and detained them, according to church announcements sent to members and passed to Reuters by churchgoers and activists. More than 100 people are believed to have been detained, said a church elder, who declined to be identified. China's Constitution guarantees religious freedom, but since President Xi Jinping took office six years ago, the government has tightened restrictions on religions seen as a challenge to the authority of the ruling Communist Party.   Chinese law requires that all places of worship register and submit to government oversight, but some churches have declined to register, for various reasons. The Early Rain Church is one of the best known unregistered "house" churches in China and according to members of the church have been unable to contact Pastor Wang Yi, the church's founder, or his wife. Churches across China have more pressure to register since a new set of regulations to govern religious affairs came into effect in February and increased punishments for unofficial churches.The post Chinese police arrest over 100 Christians and church leaders in latest move against unofficial religious groups appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.

Gabon’s Vice-President Pierre Moussavou confirms President Ali Bongo has been down with stroke since October
Gabons Vice-President PierreMoussavou confirms President Ali Bongo has been down with stroke since OctoberVP, Pierre Claver Moussavou has confirmed that President Ali Bongo of Gabon who has been in hospital since October has suffered a stroke. The 59-year-old leader left a hospital in Morocco earlier in December and is recovering at a private residence in the capital Rabat after weeks of silence about his condition. VP Moussavou said President Bongo had suffered a cerebrovascular accident or CVA, commonly known as a stroke.   “Nobody should rejoice over the death or illness of another, those who have never known a CVA, pray to God that they never know one. I would not wish it on anyone, not even my worst enemy” Moussavou said in a speech in Franceville in the south of the country.   Lack of official news after President Bongo fell ill at an economic forum in Saudi Arabia on October 24 sparked speculation the Gabonese leader was incapacitated or even dead. The vice-president was part of a delegation of high-ranking officials who visited President Bongo in Morocco, where he stayed in hospital in Riyadh. The Bongo family has governed the oil-rich equatorial African nation for five decades and long maintained close ties with former colonial master France. Diplomatic ties cooled after Ali Bongo was elected in 2009 following his father’s death and French authorities launched a corruption investigation into the family’s assets.The post Gabons Vice-President PierreMoussavou confirms President Ali Bongo has been down with stroke since October appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.

Ezinne Akudo replies and sheds light on what feminism is after Annie Idibia said she isn't one; Anita Okoye declares support
Former Miss Nigeria, Ezinne Akudo has taken to Instagram to address people who say they are not feminists.Ezinne's post comes after Annie Idibia went viral for saying she is not a feminist because women cannot be "Kings". Though Ezinne did not call Annie Idibia's name, she made reference to the debate about women addressing themselves as kings, thereby making it obvious who she was referring to.The former beauty queen in her post, explained the meaning of feminism and advised people to stop engaging in inconsequential arguments that take us back. Anita Okoye - Paul Okoye's wife - made sure to show on which side she was pitching her tent by commenting to let Ezinne know that she's in support of her post.Ezinne's post reads:For the record, each time you say you’re not a feminist, this is what you’re saying: 1.    You do not believe that men and women should have equal access to rights and opportunities.2. You support child marriage, female genital mutilation and the re-victimisation of rape victims.3. You are comfortable with earning less than your male colleagues for doing the same work. 4. You believe boys should have better access to education because girls belong in the other room.5. You are comfortable with being asked to choose between your work and pregnancy or being refused employment because you are pregnant.6. You are sexist and a patron of patriarchy.(E.t.c)If anything above offends you, then I hate to be a bearer of bad news but you are a feminist. (At least until the word evolves to equalist, or humanist or something)You might refuse to label yourself a feminist because you are scared of being disliked or perceived as angry or maybe you just don’t understand the movement at all but, FEMINISM is simply the belief that men and women should have equal access to rights and opportunities. It is the freedom of choice, a choice to live and become whoever you choose to be! Marriage is such very tiny aspect of this entire conversation, but somehow, every time the subject of feminism comes up, that is all we seem to think about. Plus just when we think we are moving forward, we wake up to debates about whether or not women should address themselves as kings or queens(personal choice really). We have far greater issues as evidenced by the inexhaustive list above, can we please refrain from arguing on this level? Yes, yes we have our culture and we know that these ‘anti feminist’ beliefs are based on traditions but maybe it’s time to sit down and ask ourselves if these beliefs are still valid, given the evolution of civilisation. But pray tell, What does feminism mean to you honestly?#WorldHumanRightsDay The post Ezinne Akudo replies and sheds light on what feminism is after Annie Idibia said she isn't one; Anita Okoye declares support appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.

“You can’t embarrass my wife for talking politics in church" - Sen. Akpabio criticises Bishop for scolding his wife during church service
Senator Godswill Akpabio on Sunday, criticised the Archbishop of the Methodist Church, Ikot Ekpene, Rev. Sunday Uko, for stopping his wife, Unoma, from making political comments during church service.According to The New Telegrah, Unoma Akpabio had asked the congregation to vote for all candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC), specifically President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC governorship candidate in the state, Obong (Dr.) Nsima Ekere in 2019.The former First lady spoke at the Methodist Church, Ukana in Essien Udim Local Government Area during a service marking the presentation of the immediate past Secretary to the Akwa Ibom State Government, Sir Etekamba Umoren, as the president of the church.  However,  the Archbishop,  who presided over the church service, got up from where he was sitting and approached Senator Akpabio to express his displeasure over his wife’s political comments.The clergy scolded Akpabio’s wife for using the church service to do political campaign and made attempts to seize the microphone from her.A visibly angry Akpabio, who got hold of the microphone after his wife apologised to the clergy for her action, scolded the Archbishop for embarrassing his wife.He said it was wrong for the Archbishop to stop the wife from talking politics in church, and that the reason why the clergy embarrassed his wife was because he was supporting Governor Udom Emmanuel.“You can’t embarrass my wife for talking politics in church because of your support for Governor Udom Emmanuel.

Janssen Hosts Prostate Cancer Awareness Event 'More Time for Life'
 Janssen Hosts Prostate Cancer Awareness Event 'More Time for Life'On Saturday 8th December 2018, Janssen, one of the Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, invited guests to ‘More Time For Life!’, a one day health and social networking event that aimed to encourage men to be more proactive in taking control of their health in general and prostate health in particular. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in Nigeria and will affect one in four black men in their life time. The event took place at Astro Turf Ikoyi. The event was aimed at not only significantly increasing awareness of prostrate health issues but also in destigmatising conversations around prostate cancer, while empowering men and families with important information about life style modification changes that research has shown can play a role in reducing the risk of prostate cancer or improving outcomes for men with prostate cancer.  Men over 40 were encouraged to take Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and other tests, an important step in both identifying prostate cancer earlier and in understanding one’s risk profile. Research shows that when detected early the survival rate for men with prostate cancer is 98%, dropping to 29% when detected at later stages. Commenting on the event, Michelle Akande, Country Manager, Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson said: Johnson & Johnson has been responding to healthcare needs for 125 years and our ambition is to change the trajectory of health for humanity in Nigeria. Today, we are proud to be partnering with mDoc, Project PINK BLUE and The American Business Council to change the trajectory of prostate cancer in Nigeria. Overwhelmingly, late presentation to the healthcare system and poor outcomes characterize the prostate cancer experience of men in Nigeria today. Yet evidence tells us that early detection and life style modifications can both improve outcomes for those with prostate cancer and reduce the associated risk factors of prostate cancer. It is very important that we increase our individual and collective understanding of prostate cancer. She added: ‘More Time For Life!’ is adding to the national conversation about prostate cancer and is in support of the Federal Ministry of Health’s National Cancer Control Plan 2018 - 2022, which sets out ambitious goals, including: of making screening services and early detection of cancer available for all Nigerians, as well as increasing cancer awareness amongst the population. The event which targeted senior executives intended to create a network of prostate cancer advocates with the ability to influence the prostate cancer health seeking behaviour of men in their organsations and communities. 'More Time for Life' partners included mDoc, Project PINK BLUE and the American Business Council. 1 National Cancer Control Plan 2018 – 2022 (Nigeria) 2 Prostate Cancer UK.
