Jonathan Inaugurates N300m CAN Leadership Centre


President Goodluck Jonathan has inaugurated the N300 million Jubilee Resort and Leadership Centre built by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Abuja.

 “I am indeed happy that today we are talking about the leadership centre,” he said at the ceremony, urging the association to ensure that it used the centre to train future Nigerian leaders with strong moral and fiscal discipline.
“The greatest asset of any society is leadership – from the family to business; from the church to the national level.

“I believe this centre will be used to model and mould leaders, especially those Christians, who are aspiring to be leaders at all levels in the church, in business, in the educational institutions, and of course in the political setting,” the News Agency of Nigeria reported.
The president said that Nigerians would always expect that if a Christian was governor of a state, there would be a difference.

Bishop Warns BuharI About PDP Defectors

The Diocesan Bishop, Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Diocese of Egba, Rt Reverend Emmanuel Adekunle has warned President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari to be careful of the defecting politicians from the Peoples Democratic Party. He says "Buhari should not to allow the defectors pollute his administration".

Adekunle gave the counsel on Tuesday, April 21, while speaking with journalists in Abeokuta.

He said: “Since the APC won the presidential election, politicians from other political parties started moving to the APC.

“I must sound a note of caution, the president-elect should be careful of appointing those who are defecting from another political parties to the APC as ministers or into other key positions. Because, they have different ideologies and values.”

“They are coming from a different system. He should not appoint those who will pollute his administration. Nigerians are expecting much from him; so, he has to be careful about those who will work with him.”

Speaking further, Adekunle advised Buhari to appoint technocrats in different fields to fill his cabinet.

“The president-elect must look beyond the political party he belongs to in choosing his ministers. The issue is about building the country and not about building any political party. So the President should also consider technocrats, who may be in other political parties. The change we want is about masses-oriented programmes.”

Christian Refugees Formed Human Chain to Escape Being Thrown to Their Deaths by Muslims

Christian refugees fleeing war and poverty in Africa to seek a better life in Europe recounted how they formed a human chain last Thursday to avoid being thrown to their deaths in the Mediterranean along with 12 of their brothers during a clash over their faith with Muslims on a migrant boat near southern Italy.

"The motive for the resentment was traced to their faiths," police in the Sicilian capital Palermo noted in a Newsweek report of the drowned Christians. "Twelve people are said to have drowned in the waters of the Mediterranean, all of them Nigerian and Ghanaian."

Italian police arrested 15 African men from the Ivory Coast, Mali and Senegal alleged to have thrown the Christians to their deaths based on survivor accounts.

Surviving Christians who were on the boat carrying 105 migrants revealed in a Daily Mail report that they would have suffered the same fate if they had not formed a "human chain."

Christian refugees have revealed how they linked arms to form a human chain in a desperate bid to stop Muslim migrants from throwing them into the sea after an argument about religion.

David Cameron Preaching to Pentecostals & Praying with Sikhs

David Cameron courted both Christian and Sikh voters, visiting a Sikh temple in Kent the day after speaking at the Festival of Life in London – the UK's largest Christian gathering.

Led by Pastor EA Adeboye, the general overseer of the Nigerian Pentecostal Redeemed Christian Church of God, the Festival of Life attracted some 45,000 people to the ExCeL at midnight on Friday. Giving a keynote speech, Cameron joked that catering the event "must be like feeding the 5,000... you must be relieved that it's just spiritual food on the menu tonight."

To rousing applause, the prime minister quoted Jesus in Matthew's Gospel: "Together we are all part of one family. As Jesus said with his arms outstretched to his disciples: 'Here are my mother and my brothers, for whoever does the will of my father in heaven is my brother, my sister and my mother'.

"And that is what we are, as God's children we are all one big family," he continued. Cameron told those gathered that while as a young boy he thought churches had to look a certain way, with a slate roof, a large spire, pews and a pulpit, "you've proved that church is people, church is a family, and it doesn't matter what the roof is made of, because with your energy, your devotion, your love of Jesus Christ, you raise that roof every time."

“Whilst working on the 2nd volume of my Worship Sessions Album, I felt the urge to write about the goodness of God (Jesus Christ) to me. I had long yearned for a song that could give me room to express my gratitude. I then decided to title the song exactly the way i ‘felt’ – ‘YOU ARE GOOD’.
