UK Based Nigerian Man Says Redeemed Church Broke His Marriage.

A United Kingdom-based Nigerian, Ayadi Moniaye, has accused the Jubilee Parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Manchester of turning his ex-wife against him,a move which eventually ended their marriage.
Moniaye, who said he got married to his wife in 2000, said the marriage packed up in 2009 after years of domestic violence.
The father of three alleged that a group in the parish taught women how to get the support of the UK immigration policy by abusing their spouses.

He said, “Nigerian women in the UK were brainwashed by the group to abuse their husbands so they can claim their husbands’ property and exploit the UK immigration policy to their advantage.

“I challenged the church, telling the coordinators of the programme that the Bible did not support such practice. Unknown to me, my wife was part of it.”
He said his wife assaulted him on many occasions, but he did not retaliate which got her frustrated.

Moniaye said, “On one of such occasions, she injured me. She later called the police to drive me out of the house. When the police got to our home, they met the children around me, consoling me, and because of what they saw, they could not drive me out of the house.
“After series of such unprovoked attacks, my wife admitted that she was maltreating me to get me out of the house.”

Moniaye showed Punch documents detailing his ordeals in the UK, including an alleged accusation by his wife that he was mentally unstable.
The allegation of mental instability was, however, rejected by a document dated June, 2010 and issued by one Dr R.A. Jones of Manchester Mental Health.

Moniaye told disclosed that although he had been separated from his wife, he was concerned about the negative impression such incidents were creating for Nigerians.
He said all efforts to get the matter to the attention of the General Overseer of the church, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, had been rebuffed by protocol officers.

“I am deeply concerned about the way women are portraying the image of this country to the outside world. And it is unfortunate that the church would be used as a platform for this. My concern is how we can correct this impression,” he added.

Contacted through its official telephone lines an official of the church said that the pastor would not respond to the allegation.
The official, who did not give his name, said, “I can tell you that the pastor will not want to talk about it. But I appreciate the call and will pass your message across to him.”

Punch was directed from the national headquarters of the RCCG at Oyingbo, Lagos to the Redemption Camp on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway,saying matters of such magnitude were usually addressed there.
The Chief Legal Officer, Pastor Ayodele Oladeji said, “Yes, a letter has been received at our office here, written by Moniaye, requesting to see Daddy G.O., and we are treating it.
“I want to assure you that even those who write to Daddy G.O. on ordinary piece of paper receive attention. We will investigate this and know what happened.We have all the documents which Moniaye has submitted to us. He will get a redress of his case with a little patience. We ourselves could feel his pulse with facts on the documents. But you know for now it is still one sided until we get the other side (from the UK church).

* I think his church's hierarchy in Nigeria and England took advantage of him, probably wrecked his marriage and are ignoring him. From looking at his Twitter page, seems he's been on the quest for justice for at least 12 months. Seems his Naija wife used him to obtain visa / stay / passport, then, stitched him up, took his children, took his possessions / house, and the church and his ex wife ganged up on him and smeared that he was insane, etc. With more publicity, he could get closure / resolution / justice.

From the info from Google search, in about 2010, he was a PhD student at Manchester University's Manchester Business School. From the info on LinkedIn, he is currently a lecturer at University of Manchester, Manchester, United Kingdom.

His last tweet was in 2013. He tried to contact his church leaders in Nigeria, but they blanked him -

Renown Human Right Lawyer And Activist Bamidele Aturu Dies At 49

Last evening news filtered out of the death of radical lawyer and renown activist, Bamidele Aturu.
Mr. Aturu is said to have died this evening after a brief illness. He was 49 years old.
The late lawyer was one of the founding members  Democratic Alternative, a political group committed to pursuing deep-rooted democratic principles and holding those in power accountable to the governed.
He came to prominence as a fighter against power abuses when, as a member of the National Youth Service Corps, he refused to shake the hand of a military administrator  of Niger State, Col. Lawan Gwadabe in 1988 during his NYSC passing out parade declaring that the military had caused great harm to the democratic aspirations of Nigerians.
Mr. Aturu studied law at the University of Ife, and devoted much of his legal practice to representing marginalized or oppressed individuals and groups.
The late activist was nominated as a member of the ongoing national confab, but he renounced his membership, arguing that the conference was designed to achieve nothing.
May his soul rest in peace, Amen.

Akin Bello Wins $20,000 Professor Wole Soyinka Prize (PHOTOS).

The judges of the Wole Soyinka Prize for Literature in Africa have named Akin Bello, a former Chairman of the Oyo State chapter of the Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA), as the winner of the fifth edition of the prestigious prize in Literature.

Bello was crowned by Professor Wole Soyinka, assisted by the board of the Lumina Foundation, the organisers of the prize, Governor of River State, Rotimi Amaechi & Globacom’s Head of GloWorld, Titi Ebinisi, at the grand finale of the award at the Civic Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos on Saturday.

The fifth edition of the award, sponsored by the National Carrier, Globacom, was keenly contested by three authors, Bello, Othuke Ominibohs and Toyin Abiodun, whose entries were considered the best three of the total of 163 works submitted from across Africa.

One of the judges of the Prize, Professor Olu Obafemi, a prolific playwright, novelist and poet, who has himself published 14 scholarly and 15 creative books, formally announced the winner, who was promptly presented the much coveted trophy and his cheque.

The winner, Akin Bello, was born in Lagos in 1950, and educated at Oyo, Ghana and the University of Ife, (now Obafemi Awolowo University) Ile-Ife, where he obtained a B.Sc. (Hons) (Pol. Science) in the 2nd Class (Upper) Division in 1975.

A widely traveled man with a richly diversified work experience, Bello is currently an Executive Director of a Non-Governmental Organisation in Ibadan. He was the Chairman of the Oyo State Chapter of ANA for four years between 2008 and 2012.

Before now, Bello had published three novels and a poetry collection. His first play, ‘Egbon of Lagos’ has now won him recognition and fame at the Wole Soyinka Prize for Literature in Africa.

In his remarks, Professor Soyinka thanked the Lumina Foundation and its partners, including Globacom for organizing the grand event and making it a success.

In a goodwill message read on his behalf, Globacom’s Chairman, Dr. Mike Adenuga, said that “Globacom is delighted to be part of the successful execution of the project, which honours one of the world’s biggest literary giants, Professor Wole Soyinka and seeks to promote excellence in the literary arts on the continent of Africa." 

Dr. Adenuga said, “As a teacher, role model, social activist and advocate, Professor Wole Soyinka has directly impacted millions of lives on the continent of Africa and beyond. We are deeply honoured to be part of a project like this, which celebrates this living legend and seeks to encourage the coming generation to aspire to attain such academic excellence in the literary world.

In her remarks, Mrs. Francesca Emmanuel, the Chairperson of the Board of Trustees of Lumina Foundation, equally thanked all the partners of the organization, without whose support the project might not have been a huge success that it has been.

The grand finale of the prize was graced by other literary icons, including renowned playwright and poet, John Pepper Clark, a former President of the Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA), and loyal protégé of Professor Soyinka, Odia Ofeimun, renowned Professor of International Law and Jurisprudence, Akin Oyebode, who delivered the keynote address, and many other distinguished scholars.

Wole Soyinka Prize for Literature in Africa is a biennial event staged to recognize the best literary work produced by an African. It was established by the Lumina Foundation in 2005 to promote literary excellence in Africa and has since become the African equivalent of the Nobel Prize. This year's Prize was dedicated to the drama genre.

The panel of five judges for the Prize is drawn from Uganda, South Africa, Mali, Nigeria and Algeria.

Guests were entertained by the Steve Rhodes Orchestra which reeled out tunes in different genres, cutting across old and contemporary. Also, multi-talented instrumentalist and Glo ambassador, Bez added spice to the event.

Is Nigeria Going To Witness What Happened In Iraq? Read This!!!

Culled from PRI where they interviewed Nigerian Journalist and Lawyer Chude Jideonwo
It's just shy of a hundred days since 276 girls in northern Nigeria were abducted by Boko Haram, the Islamic extremist group. And Nigeria has seen more bombings and abductions since the girls vanished.
Just yesterday, Nigerian officials announced that another group of girls and women, who were abducted a few weeks ago, actually managed to escape. But journalist and lawyer Chude Jideonwo says it's difficult to distinguish fact from fiction in Nigeria's many kidnapping cases.

"Three weeks ago, when these girls were kidnapped in a village called Damboa, the Nigerian security forces denied the reports that more women had been kidnapped," Jideonwo says. "So it was really strange to see the same forces now say that the women, that hadn't been kidnapped, had been released. It symbolizes the confusion behind the rescue efforts."
Jideonwo says the fate of the 276 girls kidnapped in mid-April, the ones who gained worldwide attention, is equally unclear. In May, Nigeria's chief of defence staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, said the armed forces knew the exact location of the missing girls. But last week, another military spokesperson admitted Nigerian officials did not know where the girls were.
"It's just a pretty distressing state of affairs," Jideonwo says. "It's almost like they're kidnapping the girls again."
"It's one thing to have these girls missing and for us to be confident that every single best effort is being applied to solve this problem," he says. "And it's another to have the girls missing and be more convinced every day that those with the duties of finding the girls are as confused as ever."
Daily demonstrations in support of the missing girls are still held in the Nigerian capital Abuja, under what Jideonwo calls "the most relentless, shameful attacks by the Nigerian government."
Nigerian banned demonstrations in support of the girls in early June, but protestors took their case to court and received an injunction against the government that kept the sit-ins going. In response, Jideonwo says, Nigerian authorities withdrew security protection for the protestors and shipped in counter-protestors who attacked those advocating on behalf of the missing girls. 
But the Nigerian lawyer and journalist also blames his country's citizens for not maintaining sufficient resolve in the face of the abductions and explosions that now rock the country's major cities.
Jideonwo says he was appalled at the response to the bombing in June in Abuja, which happened just before the World Cup. "We tweeted for a few minutes and there was outrage, it trended and then we're back to watching football and tweeting about football," he says. "We can't afford as citizens to let this become a way of life."
He also wonders what lies ahead for his country. Jideonwo recalls a conversation he had with an Israeli stranger in an elevator, who said to him, "You see what's happening in Iraq? It looks like Boko Haram wants to do the same in Nigeria ... the Islamists want to run down your country and take over the government."
Jideonwo says his immediate reaction was disbelief. "It can never happen, you know, because it is just a fringe group in the northeast," he told the Israeli man.
The Israeli answered, "Well, that's how it started in other parts of the world. And if your government isn't winning the war, isn't stopping the bombs from spreading to other states, then give me one good reason why what is happening with ISIS in Iraq will not happen with Boko Haram in Nigeria."
Jideonwo says his ultimate response was stark. "Honestly, I take no pleasure in saying this — I honestly couldn't and still can't think of a legitimate, logical response to such a question," he says. "Because no matter what the government tries to say in Nigeria, we are not winning this war against terror."
Still, Jideonwo stays he hasn't given up hope that the girls might be rescued.
"For me, they are a symbol of a steady march toward anarchy. I take no pleasure in using bombastic words, but that is the reality of our situation," he says.
"It's a steady march. They represent for us our failure as citizens because many of us allowed the government to get away with these things. We let them divide us on the basis of religion and ethnicity."
If those girls are rescued and brought back home, he says, "then the bit of faith we have in our country and its future can begin to be restored."

Delegate Accuse Odili Of Owning Abuja’s Biggest Hospital As Odili Denies & Threatens Legal Action

There was mild drama on Tuesday at the National Judicial Institute, NJI, Abuja, venue of the on-going National Conference, when a delegate, Sidi Ali, said the biggest private hospital being built in Abuja is owned by a former Governor of Rivers State.
Delegates continued their deliberations on the report of the Committee on Devolution of Power and what took the attention of most delegates in their contribution was the issue of increasing the derivation allocation from the present 13 per cent.

In his contribution earlier in the day, a delegate representing the Civil Society, Nasiru Kura, stated that he was not against an increase in the derivation principle, b ut that whatever additional money the oil producing states get would eventually go into serving the leaders of the area to the detriment of the people in the 
communities ravaged by oil exploration.
He said what most governors do is to purchase private jets and gallivant around.
To buttress Mr. Kura’s position, Mr. Ali during his presentation said, “As I am talking now, the biggest hospital owned by a private person in Abuja is being built by a former governor of Rivers State”.
He also recalled how jailed former Governor of Delta State, James Ibori, offered former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Nuhu Ribadu, a bribe of $15 million to stave off investigation into his affairs.
As soon as Mr. Ali made his allegation, a former Governor of Rivers State, Peter Odili, who is also a delegate at the Conference, kept shouting ‘Point of Order’.
When the Chairman of the Conference eventually allowed Mr. Odili to speak, he denied owning a hospital in Abuja.
“There are many former governors of Rivers State here, but I happen to be the only medical doctor among them,” he said. “Let me say before this Honourable House and before almighty God that Dr. Peter Odili have nothing to do with this so called big hospital in Abuja which has been paraded and touted by Hon. Sidi Ali.
“If he is sure of his facts, let him stand up and tell this Hon. House the name of the owner and prove that I am the owner of this Hospital. I challenge him to do so, and I challenge every Nigerian who believes that allegation, otherwise I am going to take legal action against him.”
Mr. Kutigi, however, intervened to say that there was no need for Mr. Odili to be defensive since Mr. Ali did not mention the name of the former governor he was talking about.
The hospital being referred to by Mr. Ali is called Reliance Hospital which is still yet to be commissioned and is said to be one of the best private Hospitals in Abuja.
It is located at Area 11, behind the Nipost Headquarters, in Garki District of Abuja.
Mr. Odili, who governed Rivers State for eight years, secured a controversial, perpetual injunction from a court that has prevented the EFCC from prosecuting him for corruption.
