Abuja Bomb Blast Updates and the Fall-outs

It has been a gruesome and heart-wrenching day in Abuja as the bomb blast that rocked the El-rufai park at Nyanya, Abuja claims over 71 lives and left more people injured.

President Goodluck Jonathan also visited the blast scene as well as the National Security Advisor and other government officials. Jonathan also visited victims who are currently being treated at the Asokoro hospital and was obviously shocked and pensive throughout the tour. He has asked that all victims be treated with the best of care and security beefed up in every part of the FCT.

The suicide bomber was also identified and pictures have been documented copiously by citizen journalists.

The call also went viral for willing citizens to donate blood for the rescue of some of the victims and it received massive publicity and even diplomatic compliance as the British High Commissioner donated blood as seen in the picture.

This incident has had the ruling party PDP blame the opposition party APC for the incident saying the incident is clearly politically incited.

In all, we can only hope that we as Nigerians can arise and seek for an end to this menace even as we battle corruption and other vices.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
