Cross River State suspends Education Perm. Sec Anne Odey over suspension of morning devotion in schools.

His Excellency, Ben-Ayade of Cross River State
It seems the last has not been heard on the issue of the suspension of morning devotion in schools in Cross River State.

We earlier reported that the Christian Association of Nigeria registered its dissent on this directive and issued a press statement on this.

The Cross River State has suspended the Education Permanent Secretary over this, saying that this decision was unilaterally taken by Mrs Odey without consulting the state governor.  According to the State Security Adviser (SSA) to Governor Ben Ayade, Jude Ngaji while talking with newsmen yesterday in Calabar, the state police governor indeed contacted the state ministry of Education about a possible attack by Boko Haram. But it was not enough to suspend devotions without due consultation.

William McDowell, Nathaniel Bassey, Frank Edwards and others storm the Night of Worship 2015

It was an explosive time at the Night of Worship 2014, where renowned local and international artistes of the Gospel led thousands of people in worship. Tye Tribbett, Tasha Cobbs and Sonnie Badu were among the worship leaders who headlined the event last year. It was an incredible experience! Images that stuck with everyone in 2014 were of Tye Tribbett several feet in the air, and of hundreds of people lifting chairs up in worship. It was an intense experience; typical of the Night of Worship.

“NoW, as we like to call it, has become a well-known platform for deep worshippers across Nigeria and Africa, and it is almost here again. It is for everyone who is looking to connect with Divinity in ways they’ve never done before. It is for believers and non-believers who are searching for the Maker in a more than casual way” – The NoW Committee

Video Trailer: RISEN - 40 days after the resurrection of Jesus Christ

Risen is a film about the ressurection of Jesus Christ.

Risen tells of the first 40 days after the resurrection of Jesus through eyes of the agnostic Roman centurion charged by Pontius Pilate to investigate rumors of a risen Jewish messiah and locate the missing body of Jesus of Nazareth in order to subdue an imminent uprising in Jerusalem.

Clavius, a powerful Roman Military Tribune, and his aide Lucius, are tasked with solving the mystery of what happened to Jesus in the weeks following the crucifixion, in order to disprove the rumors of a risen Messiah and prevent an uprising in Jerusalem.
The centurion meets the Apostles and other historical and biblical characters, and as he continues his investigations, his beliefs are altered.

5 things every Nigerian should know about celebrating Halloween

Today is October 31 and it is Halloween. For some Nigerians, it is just another reason to celebrate even though they do not know what it is all about. Some think Halloween is all about dressing up in costumes, having fun and "trick or treat".

But here are some facts about Halloween you should know.
  1. The word Halloween is derived from the term "All Hallows Eve," which occurred on October 31. It is the day before November 1st, All Saints Day, which is celebrated by the Roman Catholic Church and various pentecostal churches in honour of all saints, known and unknown.
  2. According to the World Book Encyclopedia, the origin of Halloween can be traced to this “ancient pagan festival celebrated by Celtic people over 2,000 years ago,” “The Celts believed that the dead could walk among the living at this time. During Halloween, the living could visit with the dead.
  3. In the 4th century, Christians attempted to co-opt the holiday by celebrating the lives of faithful Christian saints the day before Halloween in an attempt to re-focus the day away from ghosts, goblins and witches.
  4. It is said that Halloween is celebrated by Witchcraft adherents as the night for rituals.
  5. Halloween is an opportunity to embrace the evil, devilish, dark side of the spiritual world.
So it is up to you to decide. Would you celebrate Halloween?
