Abuja Lawyers Lauds Nigeria's Elections and the Security


Lawyers in Abuja have lauded the conduct of the March 28 general elections in the country by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the security agencies.
Speaking with Daily Trust yesterday president of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Austin Alegeh (SAN) said the election is a sign that Nigeria could become a better country. He also gave a pass mark to the security agencies, saying they have performed satisfactorily.
"For us they have all worked very well but nobody is perfect. For example the security agencies arrived at venues before INEC. In all we are satisfied that the elections are basically free and fair.
"No doubt there have been incidents of violence, and card reader failure was a major challenge. But INEC rose up to the challenge and took steps to address the issues. We believe what have been done could have been done better, but it is better than what it used to be," he said.
Also speaking, Chris Uche (SAN) described the election as an improvement on past exercises.
"We thank God there have not been violence as expected. Apart from the initial hitches, things are moving okay. And I think it was good for INEC to have extended the voting to the next day," he said.
On the performance of security agencies, he said though he has not gone round the country, but from what he had observed, they have performed "creditably well." Continue HERE

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.

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.
