A Church Marriage Is Just An Uneconomical Use Of Money – by Reno Omokri

  You had a wedding in church. You did not have a marriage. What you did in church is not better than an owambe. It is not even necessary. A marriage is a family affair. That is why, in almost every country on Earth, marriage is under family law. Please assume I am lying age fact-check me. No priest, pastor or reverend has ANY business with marriage. Once your family accepts the union, you are married. It is only the girl's father that has authority to say, 'I now pronounce you husband and wife'. Any church doing that is just an interloper. From there, you simply have to register it in a marriage registry. A church marriage is just an uneconomical use of money. It is not unnecessary. The word church is even unknown to the original Scripture and Bible. I know that many of us, as Black people, are fond of reading one thing and understanding another. I am not saying that the word church is not in your English translation of the Bible. What I am telling you is that it is not in

Power of Voice

CRITICAL THINKING: POWER OF  VOICE Using one's voice to speak out against injustice is a powerful and essential tool for creating positive change in society. When individuals raise their voices collectively to address and confront injustices, they can bring attention to issues that may otherwise go unnoticed or unaddressed. Voices speaking out against injustice can serve as a catalyst for change by shedding light on systemic problems, discrimination, and inequalities. Whether it's through protests, social media campaigns, or advocacy work, the power of voice can amplify marginalized perspectives and push for reforms in policies and practices. History is filled with examples of how the power of voice has been instrumental in driving social progress. From civil rights movements to environmental activism, individuals and communities have used their voices to challenge oppressive systems, demand equality, and advocate for a more just and equitable society.% By speaking out against

WHY

I ask... Why am I now loved at death? But not with my breath I was sick and needed surgery I ran to you and pleaded for money With black blood running in your veins You had but denied me to suffer in pains I ask... Why am i shown this sympathy? When I was never showed empathy You say I'm a good & nice man That I'm a kind & peace Loving man That same me you rejected in need You had but your love for me lost to greed I ask... Why now,you check on me In depression to swim,you left me You're a snub with PhD certificate You see and overlook my every updates Not even a wish on my birthday My best and most cherished day I ask... Why tell the world now, that you care? When my problems, you couldn't share I struggled alone on life's wavy tide Embattled by the will for suicide Now I'm dead, you're telling the world First-handly about me in sweet words I ask... I ask of you not to call me brother Yes! I'm nobody's brother Don't profess l

IPOB: PRESIDENT TINUBU'S STATEMENT ON THE KILLING OF SOLDIERS IN ABA

  I have received yet another disheartening news of the killing of five soldiers by suspected militants of the proscribed terrorist organization, IPOB. The slain soldiers were on peacekeeping duty in Aba, Abia State on Thursday when they were murdered, just two months after a similar tragic incident happened in Okuama in Delta state. These unwarranted barbaric and evil acts stand condemned and should never be condoned and tolerated in our country. Our soldiers and the police have the onerous duty to protect all of us from aggressors and non state actors. Hundreds of them have paid the ultimate price in fulfilment of their duty, while some have experienced the indignity of being manhandled by the people they protect. They surely do not deserve the mindless attacks by unruly elements in our society. The federal government will come down heavily against those who have made it a habit to needlessly attack the officers and men of our armed forces. On no account should anyone, under any gu

Father Blessing: Your First Salary Is For Your Parents, Not Pastor, Says Kanayo

  Veteran Nollywood star Kanayo O. Kanayo, who recently celebrated his son Clinton Mbaise's entry into the filmmaking world, opted to respect African customs. He accepted his initial earnings from his on-set work and bestowed his fatherly blessings on him. Recall that the actor earlier announced Clinton to members of Simpliciter Associates Productions, his production company, on a movie set, announcing he would work as an assistant production manager and personal assistant to him. In the video shared on Kanayo's Instagram account on Thursday, he requested his son's first salary as a Nollywood production manager assistant and also advised people to seek blessings from their fathers with their first salary rather than from their pastors. However, he added that the amount of money a parent may recover from their child varies depending on the individual. Kanayo also emphasised that only a father can bless his child. He said, "I want to observe a culture from our ancestors

Just In: Nigerian Emerges First Black Woman To Bag PhD In Robotics At Michigan Varsity

  A Nigerian woman, Oluwami Dosunmu-Ogunbi, has made history as the first black woman to bag a PhD in Robotics at the University of Michigan in the United States. Speaking at the university's College of Engineering convocation, Dosunmu-Ogunbi, a daughter of Nigerian immigrants, spoke on the support she received in realising her aspirations. She said, "I do not stand here on my own two feet alone. None of us got here by our individual merit alone, whether it be teacher, friends, family, mentors, or role models, we each have one or multiple people to whom we are grateful for making this moment possible." She added that she wants to be remembered as the University of Michigan's first black woman to get a PhD in Robotics and she wants to use her knowledge in engineering to improve the lives of others.

Bayer Leverkusen Crowned Champions Of Bundesliga, Ending Bayern Munich’s Reign

  Bayer Leverkusen lifted the Bundesliga title for the first time in their 120-year history on Sunday, a 5-0 victory over Werder Bremen breaking Bayern Munich’s 11-year stranglehold on the German top flight. Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen knew victory would secure the title with five games to spare, and there were no signs of nerves in a dominant performance. A hat-trick from Florian Wirtz and goals from Victor Boniface and Granit Xhaka extended their unbeaten run to a stunning 43 games in all competitions. Leverkusen’s maiden title, coming after five second-place finishes in their history, keeps their dream of a remarkable treble alive while shedding their unwanted ‘Neverkusen’ nickname for good. With 10 minutes to go, the long-suffering fans began making their way to the sidelines and a few jumped the gun, storming the pitch with the match still ongoing. Leverkusen’s players ushered the fans back and some obliged, albeit briefly, with the stands swiftly emptying on the 90-minute mark
