The fundamental purpose of any religion is to make the believer as pious, upright and proper as possible. But this is not the case in Nigeria, which can be rightly said to be the most religious country on the face of planet Earth. Every nook and cranny of the country boasts of one worship place or another. With this, one would have thought the citizens would be among the most God-fearing, just and caring people in the world. The contrary is, however, the case.

The police in Ogun, on Wednesday, arraigned two staff members of the Living Faith Church, Canaanland in Ota, Afolabi Samuel, 46, and Blessing Kolawole, 39, in an Ota Magistrates‘ Court in Ogun for allegedly stealing N38 million.

Mustapha alleged that the accused persons conspired and stole N38 million belonging to the church. He said that the offence contravened the provisions of sections 390(2)(6)(8b) (9) and 516 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun, 2006. After the charges were read to them, they pleaded not guilty.

Chief Magistrate Mathew Akinyemi admitted the accused persons to bail in the sum of N2 million each with two sureties each in like sum. Akinyemi ordered that the sureties must reside within the court’s jurisdiction and be gainfully employed with evidence of tax payment to Ogun Government. He adjourned the case until Feb. 20 for further hearing.

Why in spite of these innumerable religious institutions, are such heinous crimes as corruption, kidnapping, ritual killings, human trafficking, prostitution, armed robbery and fraud among others so rampant in the society? Is it that religious bodies in Nigeria cannot positively affect the lives of their adherents? Or that the people simply don’t understand there is a difference between being religious and being spiritual? Kindly share your thoughts with us in the comment section below and don’t forget to share.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this topic to be really something that I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.

    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

Buhari has failed, cannot solve Nigeria’s problems – Soyinka blows hot

buhari has failed, cannot solve nigeria’s problems – soyinka blows hot Buhari has failed, cannot solve Nigeria’s problems – Soyinka blows hot Wole Soyinka 1024x576 1

Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, has insisted that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration has failed.

According to him, the problems confronting Nigeria were beyond Buhari.

Soyinka stated this while playing host to students who paid him a visit on his 85th birthday.

The literary icon made it clear that while state governments differ in success rates, “central government has failed”.

“The problems of this nation are beyond the solution that can be offered by this government, that’s the first admission; they have to stop thinking in partisan government

“There has always been a major problem with successive governments. It’s easier on the state level to say that a particular state is definitely doing better than another state. But the central government has failed, that’s my view in the main.

“There is a minimal level which any government which has been elected to power must achieve to be considered a true representative of the people.

“Look at what’s happening today with the cattle all over the place, that’s a security issue which should never have reached this level. That singular act has resulted in hundreds of people being killed, farms were taken over; it has wiped away a lot of the positive achievements of the government.

“They need to confront this nation as a habitation of human beings where very serious issues like economy, security, health, even threats of secession come up every day and convoke at the same time, a national conference, what I call an Indaba across all section which we will all meet and debate everything, including the economy of this nation,” Soyinka said.

Yoruba group gives Miyetti Allah 72-hour ultimatum to fish out killers of Pa Fasoranti’s daughter

yoruba group gives miyetti allah 72-hour ultimatum to fish out killers of pa fasoranti’s daughter Yoruba group gives Miyetti Allah 72-hour ultimatum to fish out killers of Pa Fasoranti’s daughter Fasoranti 1024x576

A Southwest group, Yoruba Youth Socio-cultural Association (YYSA), has expressed shock over the killing of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Afenifere Chairman, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, by persons suspected to be herdsmen in Ondo State.

In a statement signed by its National President, Olalekan Hammed, the group gave the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) a three-day ultimatum to fish out the perpetrators of the nefarious act.

DAILY POST recalls that the murder of the daughter of the Pa Fasoranti‘s daughter was confirmed by Afenifere’s spokesman, Mr. Yinka Odumakin in a statement.

He said 58-year-old Mrs. Olakunrin was killed by persons suspected to be herdsmen while heading to Ore Junction from Akure, Ondo State, where she was attacked and shot by her attackers.

But the Ondo state police command refuted Odumakin’s claim, saying it was an armed robbery attack.

However, the YYSA said it will convene an emergency meeting on Saturday (today) to discuss next line of action after the ultimatum to MACBAN elapses.

The statement reads: “We receive the news of the sudden death of Mrs. Olakunrin with great shock.

“We want the federal government to order immediate investigation on the matter because the culprits should not go unpunished.

“We also give the so-called Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN), Ondo State chapter, three days to fish out the suspected killers of Mrs. Olakunrin.

“We are having an emergency meeting tomorrow (today) in Ibadan to discuss the next line of action.”

Mrs. Olakunrin is the second child of 94-year-old Fasoranti to die, the elder statesman having also lost a daughter, Bunmi, some years ago.
