Drama As Jonathan Marks 5th Anniversary As Nigeria's President

According to The NationPresident Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday marked his fifth anniversary as a substantive President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Jonathan, following the death of former President Umaru Yar’Adua and his declaration as Acting President through the doctrine of necessity introduced by the National Assembly, became substantive President on 6th of May, 2010.
President Jonathan, who arrived for the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting took all the Ministers in attendance by surprise.
After the national anthem and national pledge have been rendered, Jonathan threw a poser at the Ministers that one of them was marking his birthday and the national prayer would be replaced by prayers by Christian and Muslim members before the Council can settle for the business of the day.

The Ministers looked round at one another in awe to see the particular Minister who was marking his birthday.
When they didn’t know the name of the person, the President then reminded them that 6th of May, 2015 marks his 5th year anniversary as substantive President.

They all responded by clapping before the Minister of Power, Prof. Chinedu Nebo said the Christian prayer while the Minister of State for Finance, Bashir Yuguda said the Muslim prayer.
After the national pledge, Jonathan said: “Today, we will not say the national prayer. Somebody is celebrating birthday so we will offer special prayers for him. Two very Godly people will pray, Nebo and Yuguda. Do you know the person?”
When they could not answer, he said: “On May 6, exactly five years today, I was sworn-in as substantive President.”

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.

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.
