Religious body urge politicians to imbibe the fear of God

The Oyo State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has encouraged politicians to make the fear of God first in their political activities.

Speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ibadan, the state chairman of the  association, Ayo Olabisi, made the appeal.

The cleric called on politicians to observe the rules guiding the electoral processes while exhibiting the fear of God. “We need to let our politicians know that coming into office is not a do-or-die affair. It is whatever God says that will come to manifestation,” he said.

Olabisi also said the ongoing 40-day fasting period for Christians, which started on February 18, was an appropriate time for Nigerians to seek the face of God. “The period has come up at the time we need prayers as a nation, especially with the elections around the corner. “It should be seen as a time for sober reflection; a time to seek the Lord’s face, repent and ask for forgiveness,” he said.

U.S.-based Nigerian Christians dismiss claims of alleged diversion of $50,000

NIGERIAN Christians in the United States (U.S.) under the aegis of Christian Association of Nigerian-Americans (CANAN) have dismissed the allegation by Borno-based Pastor and the Executive Director of the Voice of Northern Christian Movement, Mr. Musa Dikwa, that the $50,000 released by CANAN for victims of insurgency in the North-East was not disbursed to them but was diverted by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).

Dikwa had recently also alleged that President Goodluck Jonathan offered N7 billion to Christians to campaign for his re-election and that each state chapter of CAN got N3 million.


In a statement issued from New York yesterday, the Executive Director of CANAN, Laolu Akande, who described the allegation as untrue, stated that the organisation had documents which showed that the money which was delivered to the national secretariat of CAN “in a couple of batches between late 2013 and early 2014”, got to the victims.

EJ Talks About New Single “Never Fail” Featuring Provabs Due For Release March 22

“Never Fail” is a song that speaks of God’s purpose in the midst of our trials. So many times in our lives things do not go the way we plan and hope for and then we ask God, “Why?” Wondering if we have done something wrong. But God looks upon us, hoping we would get understanding of what He is doing. We tend to forget the promises of God that He will be with us through the trials and pain. He never said there won’t be trials but He said He will strengthen us through it all.

James 1:2 “Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges comes at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors… Let it do it’s work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in anyway.” (MSG)

Introducing The Ruth & Boaz Ministry Of The Fountain Of Life Church

The Ruth and Boaz Fellowship is an interdenominational ministry outreach of The Fountain of Life Church, Ilupeju, Lagos, Nigeria.

It is open to people from different churches both far and near. This ministry was conceived in 2008 when it became apparent to the Senior Pastor, Taiwo Odukoya that an ever increasing percentage of matured/older singles, single parents, separated/divorced, and widows/widowers exist in the church and the society at large.

To this end, the ministry aims at providing support to both genders, meeting their specific needs (spiritual, emotional and physical where necessary). The Ruth and Boaz Fellowship also provides a secure and conducive environment for all members where their views can be
freely expressed and problems shared, thus giving them a clearer vision of the beauty in their challenges and the opportunities that lie ahead of them and most importantly, one more reason to keep moving on.

The ministry is also geared towards changing the general mindset of the society towards this group of people and provides a support network to enable members cope better with daily challenges as it affects their varied/multi faceted needs.

This is often achieved through quarterly meetings where everyone come together to enjoy a bonding experience.

The first meeting for this year comes up on the 21st of this month (March) at the Fountain of Life Church, Industrial Estate, Ilupeju Lagos.
