Nigeria: Imo State Governor, Catholic Doctors At War Over Abortion Law

Imo State governor, Chief Rochas Okorocha, and Catholic Medical Practitioners Association are at daggers-drawn over the abortion bill the former just signed into law.

The law, among others, permits women to procure abortion at will.

Sponsored by the Majority Leader and member representing Ahiazu Mbaise state constituency, Mrs. Adekunle Ihuoma, the law is to be cited as "Imo State of Nigeria, Violence Against Persons (Prohibition) Law Number 12 of 2012".

According to the new law, every woman shall have the right to enjoy reproductive rights, including rights to medical abortion in cases of sexual assault, rape, incest and where the continued pregnancy endangers the life or the physical, mental, psychological or emotional health of the mother.

New Music: N.Paul - Jehovah Dey

N.Paul as a stage name is just the first letter of Nwogu (N. Paul’s Surname) added to Paul. He was born over two decades ago to Mr. and Mrs Philip Nwogu. His love of music took root early in his life, when his father – who was a skilled guitarist – noticed that Paul could carry a tune, he groomed him and trained him to become a soloist and watched him become a band leader.

Nigerian Islamists Kill 14 Vigilantes in Bama Raid

Nigerian Islamists killed 14 pro-government youth vigilantes in an attack on the northeastern town of Bama, a local official who attended a mass funeral for the victims said on Monday.

Sunday's attack was one of a spate of deadly assaults by the Boko Haram Islamist sect this month that raises doubts about whether a military offensive against it since May can succeed.

Local vigilante groups run by youth volunteers have been instrumental in helping the military capture Boko Haram members, but they have also made them a target for the insurgents, drawing civilians further into the conflict.

Alhaji Baba Shehu Gulumba, chairman of Bama local council, told journalists in the nearest main city of Maiduguri that insurgents disguised as soldiers lured the youths into a trap. Nine others were wounded.

The Peace of God - Pastor Poju Oyemade

“Be careful for nothing but in everything, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving make your request known to God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding shall keep your heart and mind through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7)”

The peace of God inside our hearts is the same word as shalom which also means prosperity. So if you greet someone with the word shalom, what you are saying to the person indirectly is that he has inward peace which leads to outward prosperity. This means you cannot separate peace from prosperity neither can you separate prosperity from peace. Wherever you find peace after some time you will find prosperity and if you see prosperity going on a decline in the life of a person, the first thing you should ask is when such a person lost their peace, because peace and prosperity are tied together.

Popular Nigerian Gospel Star, Nosa, releases a new song "Why You Love Me"

Popular “Always Pray for You” crooner, NOSA releases a new hit, “Why You Love Me” after the release of the smashing debut single. Steeped in elements of eastern Nigerian highlife, Na Why You Love Me So, is an inspiring departure from what you would expect from NOSA. 

The song breathes the gyrating, up tempo music that one could hear on the streets of Owerri or other parts of Nigeria’s east. And as is common with his style of music, Nosa flirts with the notion of love in its purest form; its ability to forgive and not keep record of wrongs. 

If you are looking out for music for the soul, “Why You Love Me” delivers to you a perfect answer to your prayers.
