Fashenu in a statement on Tuesday, said it was bad for the retired colonel to insult world-class Yoruba dignitaries whose shoe latch he could not untie.
He said, “There are some leaders, who had accidentally found themselves in positions in our national life, but their poor performance made them immaterial that Nigerians would rather prefer to abandon on the rubbish dump of ignominy.

By Joel Brinkley, the Hearst professional in residence at Stanford University and a Pulitzer Prize-winning former correspondent for The New York Times

Don’t Ever Think Of “Licensing” Of Religious Preachers – Cleric Warns FG

A Christian cleric, the Prelate of Methodist Church Nigeria, Dr Sunday Ola Makinde, has warned the Federal Government against the call for licensing of religious preachers in the country, explaining that religious preaching is not a secular thing that government can regulate.
In a release signed by the Public Relations Officer of Methodist Diocese of Ogbomoso, Mr Olubukola Adio, the Prelate gave the warning at the 17th annual synod of the diocese, held at Methodist Church Cathedral, Arowomole, Ogbom, last week. Prelate Makinde said that licensing of pastors by the government would only defeat the sacredness of religion.
His words: “Christians will never support government’s involvement in licensing or regulating the preaching of pastors. Ministers speak ‘thus says the Lord’ and thus the conscience of the nation. Whenever government regulates preaching, religion is finished and becomes secular.”

See Photo Of Pres. Obama Looking Like Satan - History channel's The Bible

There is a striking resemblance between the actor who plays Satan in History Channel's hit mini-series, The Bible, and the president of the United States of America, Barack Obama. Can you guys see the resemblance? Coincidence or deliberate? The actor's name is Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni.

The resemblance was pointed out on Twitter by people who watched the series this past Sunday and it is causing a lot of controversy in the US. History Channel has responded to the controversy:
