Boko Haram Suicide Bombings Widespread in Nigeria

Weather and logistics have slowed military progress against Boko Haram in Nigeria and neighboring countries. And suicide bombings that are increasingly commonplace may well continue regardless of military progress, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari told Al Jazeera English news.
"It is known that Nigeria is the main battleground, and we have agreed among ourselves to dedicate a number of troops in certain places by the end of last month [September] so that with the coming of the dry season … there will be a spontaneous move against Boko Haram," Buhari said in an Oct. 17 interview on Al Jazeera's "UpFront" broadcast, posted online.

"What we cannot guarantee really is a question of using IEDs, improvised explosive devices in public places," he said. "That operation by Boko Haram may continue beyond the time limit that we gave [Dec. 31]. But the articulated attacks by Boko Haram on townships, on military installations, will certainly stop."

Nigerian Bishop To Lecture on Religion, Development and Democracy in Africa

Bishop Matthew H. Kukah, a noted Nigerian advocate for justice, democracy and human development, will speak at the University of Notre Dame on Oct. 29 (Thursday). His lecture, “Religion, Human Development and Democracy in Africa: Lessons from Nigeria,” is sponsored by the Kellogg Institute for International Studies. Free and open to the public, the lecture will be held at 4 p.m. in the Hesburgh Center Auditorium.

A respected scholar as well as the bishop of the Diocese of Sokoto, Nigeria, Kukah has played an active role in Nigerian civil society and is well-known in Africa and beyond as a champion of respectful Christian-Muslim relations.

He has served on Nigeria’s Truth Commission, the Political Reform Conference for Nigeria and the country’s Electoral Reform Committee and helped to negotiate an end to the Shell-Ogoni conflict in Nigeria’s delta region. He chaired the Committee on Interreligious Dialogue in Nigeria and West Africa and was appointed by Pope Benedict XVI as a member of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue.

In his lecture, Kukah will discuss how Christian and Islamic religious institutions and religious beliefs have promoted or inhibited integral human development and how religious institutions or universities might better promote such development.

70 Percent of Health Centres Below Standard, Says Christian Aid

A Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) Christian Aid Nigeria (CAN) has said over 70 per cent of health centres in the country are below standard. In a recent report carried out by the organisation in 73 Primary Health Centres (PHCs) across five states revealed poor standards, weak infrastructure and a dearth of services, adding that at least seven in ten of them are below standard.

The five states are Anambra, Benue, Kaduna, Plateau and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Speaking at the launch of the report in Abuja, Country Director, Charles Usie said only 16 facilities met requirements to cover 10,000 to 20,000 populations in their catchment areas, adding that the assumption that there is a lot of money being put into primary healthcare is also not completely true

"Over 70 per cent of the primary healthcare centres we looked at fell below standard. 60 per cent lacked adequate healthcare personnel. That's a big question. Where is the money government says it has deployed to health care? How is it trickling down to state and local governments where it is used?," Usie asked.

Covenant Christian Centre opens a training centre - The Covenant Bible Institute.

Pastor Poju Oyemade, Covenant Christian Centre
Covenant Christian Centre is opening its Bible Institute. This announcement was made by the Senior Pastor of the Church, Pastor Poju Oyemade on his Facebook Page today.

According to him,
This Institute is committed to discipleship. It is to bring the believer into the knowledge of the things of the Spirit.
The ministry of Christ had a public phase and He also had private meetings with some. There, in the private meetings He explained further principles He taught in public. It was from those private discussions with some that the continuity of His work on earth emerged.
In the ministry of Jesus we see it at various instances, let’s quote two of them.
Matthew 24:3
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
Mark 9:28
And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?
For Paul he put it this way in Acts 20; 20 “And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publicly, and from house to house,”
We do have a mandate to save and to bring men into the knowledge of the truth.

National Broadcasting Commission issues press statement on DSTV's proposed airing of transgender programme "I am Jazz"



The Nigerian National Broadcasting Commission has issued a statement on the proposed DSTV's proposed airing of TLC's transgender programme "I am Jazz".

There has been news on social media that DSTV has been airing an advert for "I am Jazz" on their TLC channel 172 which is set to start showing on DSTV in Nigeria on the 27th of October 2015.

"I am Jazz" is a reality TV series about Jazz, a transgender kid; an 11 year old boy who has "transitioned" into a girl.

This brought about a petition online asking people to protest by sending an email to the National Broadcasting Commission at info@nbc.gov.ng and complaints on their website http://www.nbc.gov.ng.

It would seem that this protest worked as the NBC issued a statement yesterday assuring Nigerians that it will investigate and ensure it will safeguard Nigerian airwaves and ensure the peoples' right to quality broadcasting. This statement is on its website.

Here is the Press statement from NBC
