CAN protests against move to list Nigeria among Arab nations to fight ISIS

Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, President of CAN
Last night, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), protested the attempt by the current All Progressives Congress, APC, government to enlist Nigeria among Arab nations to fight ISIS.

According to international reports, Saudi Arabia is building a coalition of 34 Muslim/Arab countries to fight ISIS and Nigeria was named among the 34.

A statement late last night by the General Secretary of CAN, Rev. Musa Asake, said: “This singular gesture of the Buhari government betrays so much, and tends to confirm our fears that underneath everything this government is doing, there is an agenda with strong Islamic undertones, aimed at undermining Nigeria’s pluralistic character and neutrality regarding government’s affiliation to any one religion.

“While joining hands with other countries to fight ISIS is something good, our country must not be tagged as a Muslim or Arab nation. Christians must make a public statement showing their discontent on this development which portends great danger to national unity and integration.”

President Obama Appoints Nigerian ‘Adewale Adeyemo’ As Deputy NSA for International Economic Affairs

President Barack Obama has appointed a 34 year old Nigerian, Adewale ‘Wally’ Adeyemo who served in top roles at the Treasury Department to succeed Caroline Atkinson as his deputy national security adviser for international economic affairs.
Adeyemo  has served in Obama’s administration since 2009. He joined the White House’s National Economic Council as deputy director. He was the Treasury’s lead negotiator on the currency agreement that was part of the Pacific trade deal.
According to President Obama,  “For the past four years, I have relied on Caroline Atkinson, most recently as my Deputy National Security Advisor for International Economics, as we’ve navigated pressing challenges to the global economy.
“As my representative at the G-7 and G-20, she played a key role in coordinating our response to international financial crises, worked with our allies to devise and implement targeted economic sanctions to advance our national security goals, played a vital role in our economic engagements with China, and helped to achieve breakthrough agreements on climate that will strengthen our economy and our security.
“I’ve relied on, and benefited from, Caroline’s knowledge and judgment and, as she concludes her tenure on my national security team, I am deeply appreciative of her service.
“I am grateful that Caroline’s work will be carried on by Adewale “Wally” Adeyemo, who has served in my administration since 2009. At the Treasury Department, he was part of the team that helped coordinate our response to the global recession, laying the foundation for renewed growth at home and abroad.
“He helped establish the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and he’s been our point person on a range of international economic issues, including negotiations on strong currency agreements around the Trans Pacific Partnership. I will be calling on Wally’s intellect, judgment and dedication as we sustain America’s global economic leadership, which reinforces our national security, and as we work with allies and partners around the world to create jobs and opportunity for all our people.”
Adeyemo holds a B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley and another degree from Yale Law School.

New Music: Apala Fusion ~ Awhybaiz Ft. Maya & Owen Charles

Prolific Bass Minstrel,song writer and Sociologist AYO OLATEJU aka AWHYBAIZ is focused on creating a very dynamic infusion of African culture and ethics into Modern day gospel music.

His style and approach towards music is deeply enrooted in culture with the tonal usage of the Yorùbá language in expressing what has been divinely delivered to him as the gospel message, this he also aids with the use of english in constructing & interpreting his lyrics.

The AWHYBAIZ brand is enriched with very unique African vibes;so cultural but highly spiritual; a victorious sound set to boost the confidence of all believers and to further liberate the unbelievers.

The Ojó Òní á sanmí composer always dazzles in his efforts to further propagate the gospel of Christ…and with the use of his bass guitar he has succeeded in creating a very vibrant and energetic sound for himself.

The ideology behind the song Apala Fusion is derived from Apala music;a very melodious yorùbá traditional music, highly rich in percussions. Like the name implies, it is the infusion of Apala music into other styles/genres such as soul, a touch of rock, pop, and even fuji…the song is written and composed by AYOMIOTIITAN OLATEJU as inspired by the Spirit of the Living God…It is a soul winning and motivational song for all Christians helping them to further declare their salvation and victory in Christ; Powered by YAHWEH(OBA ÌMÚSE).
