Politics / BH: Nigeria To Pay N45bn Interest On $1bn Loan by abubello(m): 9:04am On Oct 15
Nigeria is to pay N45 billion as interest on the $1 billion foreign loan to be taken by the Federal Government for the purchase of military hardware, it emerged yesterday.

President Goodluck Jonathan had in July asked the National Assembly to approve the foreign loan, which is to be used to ramp up spending on military equipment for the battle against BH insurgency.

The House of Representatives heard yesterday that the loan is to be repaid in yearly installments of N30 billion for seven years, making a total of N210 billion.
Our correspondents report that based on this, the additional N45 billion represents interest and other charges on the principal sum of N165 billion, which is the naira equivalent of the $1 billion loan.

House of Representatives Finance Committee chairman Abdulmumini Jibril told lawmakers yesterday that during interactions with stakeholders, the committee discovered that Nigeria would have to cough out about N30 billion annually for seven years to defray the loan.
He explained that the yearly repayments would be captured in the 2015 Federal budget.

Jibrin said his committee and the Committee on Debts and Loans, which are saddled with the responsibility of interfacing with stakeholders on the loan, must ask some relevant questions on the issue. He said the panels were trying to establish the portion of the military hardware that would go to each security agency, among other issues.

Jibrin added that some of the security agencies do not even know what they would get from the equipment to be procured, hence the need to do a thorough job.

He asked the House to give them two weeks to conclude work on the loan request. But Speaker Aminu Waziri Tambuwal directed them to present their report “latest by next Tuesday.”

Politics / FG Spends N3.4bn Monthly On Ajaokuta Mill by abubello(m): 10:50am On Sep 01
The federal government is wasting N3.4bn monthly on Ajaokuta Steel Mill, the chairman of the Assets Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON), Alh Kola Belgore, has said. “That is what we are paying for doing nothing monthly currently at Ajaokuta.”

He lamented that despite the huge potential of Ajaokuta Steel Mill, it remained unproductive.

“There are 2,500 engines mounted and engineers and 6,000 employees, and we are paying them every month a total of N3.4bn,” he stated.

Belgore spoke in Ilorin at an award ceremony in honour of acting inspector-general of police Sulaiman Abba, AIG Ambrose Aisabor, corps marshal of the FRSC and three other alumni of the Nigeria Institute of Policy and Stategic Studies (NIPPS), Kuru, Jos.

The ceremony was organised by the immediate past president of the Association of Alumni of Institute (AANI) and chairman, LUBCON Group of Companies, Alh. Jani Ibrahim.

The AMCON chairman decried the situation of the country, saying things are virtually static.

He proudly announced that AMCON is the only corporation with over N6trillion and one kobo of the money has not missed.

He blamed the unemployment problem on closure of companies and businesses in the country.

He lamented that the country is importing fuel despite being an oil-producing country, saying it is ridiculous and the development has made Nigeria a laughing stock among the comity of nations.

He added,”The honest truth is that we are not happy and if here we say we are happy, it is because most of us are in a comfort zone of the society –we are privileged in the society. If we ask the masses of this country who are downtrodden, they would tell you they are not happy with the situation of the country.

“The country is virtually static. Things are not moving in the right direction and everybody is keeping quiet. It has nothing to do with politics, it has to do with our collective interest.

“God endowed Nigeria very well with human, material resources, yet we are seriously under-performing as a nation. We must wake up and try to do something to move us in the right direction.

“The nation is blessed with petrol and yet we are importing fuel in the country. We are importing petrol and we are the seventh largest producer in the world. What kind of ridicule is that? Yet we all kept quiet. You saw what happened when they were investigating those that said they imported fuel to the country. They did not bring anything, yet through connivance they manipulated papers and they were collecting billions as cost of importing fuel.

Religion / Christians In Jerusalem Want Jews To Stop Spitting On Them by abubello(m): 11:13am On Aug 18
A few weeks ago, a senior Greek Orthodox clergyman in Israel attended a meeting at a government office in Jerusalem’s Givat Shaul quarter. When he returned to his car, an elderly man wearing a skullcap came and knocked on the window. When the clergyman let the window down, the passerby spat in his face.

The clergyman prefered not to lodge a complaint with the police and told an acquaintance that he was used to being spat at by Jews. Many Jerusalem clergy have been subjected to abuse of this kind. For the most part, they ignore it but sometimes they cannot.

On Sunday, a fracas developed when a yeshiva student spat at the cross being carried by the Armenian Archbishop during a procession near the Holy Sepulchre in the Old City. The archbishop’s 17th-century cross was broken during the brawl and he slapped the yeshiva student.

Both were questioned by police and the yeshiva student will be brought to trial. The Jerusalem District Court has meanwhile banned the student from approaching the Old City for 75 days.

But the Armenians are far from satisfied by the police action and say this sort of thing has been going on for years. Archbishop Nourhan Manougian says he expects the education minister to say something.

“When there is an attack against Jews anywhere in the world, the Israeli government is incensed, so why when our religion and pride are hurt, don’t they take harsher measures?” he asks.

According to Daniel Rossing, former adviser to the Religious Affairs Ministry on Christian affairs and director of a Jerusalem center for Christian-Jewish dialogue, there has been an increase in the number of such incidents recently, “as part of a general atmosphere of lack of tolerance in the country.”...

@emmaomotob by your own admission some some accounts in the bible are untrue, the question is how many percent of the bible is untrue?
Do you as a Christian have a way if sifting the true from the untrue in the bible. How can you be sure that passages like crucifixion, trinity, original sin etc do not belong to the untrue portion?
Religion / Re: Interesting Facts About The Bible!!! » » » by abubello(m): 8:43am On Aug 17
still more:

7. There are even contradictions in the accounts of the resurrection – the supposed event that is the very foundation of the Christian religion. Mark 16:2 states that on the day of the resurrection, certain women arrived at the tomb at the rising of the sun. But John 20:1 informs us they arrived when it was yet dark. Luke 24:2 describes the tomb as open when the women arrived, whereas Matthew 28:1-2 indicates it was closed. Mark 16:5 declares that the women saw a young man at the tomb, Luke 24:4 says they saw two men, Matthew 28:2 reports they saw an angel, and John 20:11-12 claims they saw two angels.

8. Also in the resurrection stories, there are contradictions as to the identity of the women who came to the tomb,[7] whether the men or angels the women saw were inside or outside the tomb,[8] whether the men or angels were standing or sitting,[9] and whether Mary Magdalene recognized the' risen' Jesus when he first appeared to her.

9. As a final example of a New Testament contradiction, the conflicting accounts of Paul’s conversion can be cited. Acts 9:7 states that when Jesus called Paul to preach the gospel, the men who were with Paul heard a voice but saw no man. According to Acts 22:9, however, the men saw a light but didn't hear the voice speaking to Paul.

Do christians still beleive that these contradictory accounts were all inspired by holy spirit?
Religion / Re: Interesting Facts About The Bible!!! » » » by abubello(m): 8:41am On Aug 17
more contradictions:

In describing Jesus being led to his execution, John 19:17 recounts that he carried his own cross. But Mark 15:21-23 disagrees by saying a man called Simon carried the cross.

5. As for the crucifixion, Matthew 27:44 tells us Jesus was taunted by both criminals who were being crucified with him. But Luke 23:39-43 relates that only one of the criminals taunted Jesus, the other criminal rebuked the one who was doing the taunting, and Jesus told the criminal who was defending him, "Today shalt thou be with me in paradise."

6. Regarding the last words of Jesus while on the cross, Matthew 27:46 and Mark 15:34 quote Jesus as crying with a loud voice, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" Luke 23:46 gives his final words as, "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit." John 19:30 alleges the last words were, "It is finished."

Shocking contradictions in the bible:
In the New Testament, there are contradictions between the genealogies of Jesus given in the first chapter of Matthew and the third chapter of Luke. Both genealogies begin with Joseph. But Matthew says Joseph’s father was Jacob, while Luke claims he was Heli. Matthew lists 26 generations between Jesus and King David, whereas Luke records 41. Matthew runs Jesus’ line of descent through David’s son Solomon, while Luke has it going through David’s son Nathan.

2. The story of Jesus' birth is also contradictory. Matthew 2:13-15 depicts Joseph and Mary as fleeing to Egypt with the baby Jesus immediately after the wise men from the east had brought gifts. But Luke 2:22-40 claims that after the birth of Jesus, his parents remained in Bethlehem for the time of Mary’s purification (which was 40 days, under the Mosaic law). Afterwards, they brought Jesus to Jerusalem "to present him to the Lord," and then returned to their home in Nazareth. Luke mentions no journey into Egypt or visit by wise men from the east.

3. Concerning the death of Judas, the disloyal disciple, Matthew 27:5 states he took the money he had received for betraying Jesus, threw it down in the temple, and "went and hanged himself." To the contrary, Acts 1:18 claims Judas used the money to purchase a field and "falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out"

Politics / Policeman Wants APC To Take Control Of Nigeria’s Leadership by abubello(m): 11:54am On Aug 13
A policeman currently serving under the Joint Task Force (JTF) in Yobe State has called for the change of leadership in the country from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Speaking with the Voice of America, Hausa Service, monitored in Abuja yesterday, the policeman who did not give his name said he was happy that the APC won the Osun governorship election on Saturday.

The policeman who decried the lack of prompt payment of their monthly allowances said they are tired of the PDP-led government which does not take proper care of security personnel in the country.

“I’m a security man. I’m happy with the way APC won the election. Frankly speaking, PDP has weakened the status of security agencies,” he said, adding that “Since we went to Yobe, six months ago, it was only day before yesterday that they gave us one month allowance, and they’re supposed to be giving us N15,000 every month. I went there under special duties of JTF. I’m a policeman.”

“It’s not appointing a new Inspector-General that is our problem; our problem is that they don’t take care of security men in the whole country. We want change of leadership so that the new leaders will take care of security personnel. We can’t be battling with hunger at the same time with our families,” he added.

The embittered policeman said although people say Nigerian politicians are birds of the same feather, he sees those in the APC as being different. “Yes, it’s true, but we have to see other politicians’ actions and policies
