|Religion / Suicide: Update On Michael Arowosaiye And RCCG by gbigbega: 9:40am On May 16|
I understand people do get agitated at matters like this and all kinds of theory flies around. I just want to set the record straight that there was an attempt by RCCG to help him but obviously there is more to it than meets the eye. Perhaps the accommodation issue triggers his suppressed depression. While we grief for him, we will appreciate if we don't make it harder by blaming the church who actually offered to help. He was one of us lively and easy going, he left RCCG for Shepherd House in Apo for a while and he just decided to return back to RCCG, then this happened.
This is my conversation yesterday with a pastor friend closer to him. Please help spread the real truth.

|Literature / The Great Exchange - The Easter Story by gbigbega: 11:38pm On Apr 20|
THE GREAT EXCHANGE
As I stood before the judge, hearing the proceedings in the court, I knew there was no hope for me. My accusers have enough evidence against me, all witnesses have accurately testified against me, I was exposed. It is obvious that I will face the consequences as stated in the book. My judgment is clear – “The soul that sinneth shall die”.
I saw the look on my Master’s face – who is also my judge. On His face were different expressions, one of disappointment , that I brought myself so low to commit such atrocities, another was of pity, that I have been an unprofitable servant, and of anger, for I will pay the ultimate sacrifice. Behind me was my solicitor, my advocate, the son of my master, who had been pleading for my release. The expression on his face seem to say “I have tried my best, it’s all over, you will have to face the consequence of your sins”.
My master, who is also the judge, rose and said “ We all know that this sinner is condemned by law to die, but before he dies, is there anything anyone can do to help him”. I looked at the direction of my friends and relatives but no one was able to help me. I looked again at the elders in my master’s service and none was able to help, even the valiant guards in my master’s service could not help me- There was grave silence in the court room, I am condemned, forsaken and doomed forever. Reality dawned on me and I wept profusely. At the point of my grief and horror, I noticed some kind of commotion in the court room but I was too enveloped in grieve to care to look up. The uproar of my accusers overwhelms me as they shouted “He is guilty of death- crucify him”. My master, the judge, pronounced with a thunderous voice “Take him, he is yours”. My accusers charged at me with their chains and shackles, hate and disgust mixed with a feeling of victory was all over their faces. I shuddered as they came rushing towards me, but something strange happened. My accusers ran past me and threw their chains on my advocate who is also the son of my Master. They started leading him towards the slaughter – the place of the skull. What.. what is going on”? I manage to muster. My master’s chief guard touched me on the shoulder and said “be of good cheer servant, while you grieved in contrition over your sin, your master’s son, your advocate, volunteered to take your place. The judgment of death had been passed over to him for your sake. “Oh no” I cried out, “how can that be? I am the sinner, I am the disobedient one, my advocate is righteous, the only begotten of my master is innocent. How can he take my place. How can he, so high and mighty, so righteous, without sin take the place of a filthy wretch like me. This cannot be, how will my master allow His son to die for me”. I shook in horror, confused and horrified with fear and a feeling of shame for what I just brought about . I need to know why he did this for me. I turned and looked at him who took my place and I could barely recognized him, he has been beaten beyond recognition. My accusers have speared him no weep, no pity, no iota of respect was accorded him. I slipped through the crowd to my advocate, my Redeemer, my friend, as he was laid down to be crucified. I got on my kneels before him and covered my face, too ashamed and unworthy to look at Him. My advocate looked at me, He lifted up my head, rose me to my feet and smile and said “You were condemned to die because you have lived against the will of my father. I have life because I have always pleased Him and done all he wanted of me; but today I make an exchange. I exchange my personality for yours, LIVE MY LIFE AND LET ME DIE YOUR DEATH. I have to die because your life that I now bear is no longer worthy to live. Remember that you were speared because you now carry my life, the life that had always pleased the father. LIVE MY LIFE AND LET ME DIE YOUR DEATH, please live it.
Overwhelmed, I crumbled in awe of him, my knees buckled. I was like a sheep ready for the slaughter but He took my place, He took my place, He took my place. He took my pains, He took my shame, he took my shackles, my chains, my curse, my sorrows, my inabilities, insufficiencies and inadequacies – He took my place.
I wept as my accusers snatched away my Advocate, my Savior, my Redeemer, the only begotten of my father. As I wept uncontrollably, I felt a hand touched me behind, I looked and alas it was my master. I thought to myself “ I am finished, what shall I say to him, how can I appease him, I have sinned against him and now His only son was crucified for a wretched like me”; but my master stretched forth His hand and picked me up, he looked me in the eyes, smiled and called me the name of His beloved son. I don’t understand, I exclaimed, how could my master call me son. Then my master said “That is who I call you from now on- my son. Your old self have died – my son took your place. The person hanging on the cross is you and all your filth and sin nailed to it. The man standing here is my beloved son living in you. My son lives in you son, he said, come and enjoy my presence as a son and not a servant.
Gal 2:20 “I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me. And the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”

|Politics / Re: Afenifere, NEF, Ohaneze, PANDEF, Others Endorse Atiku by gbigbega: 10:58pm On Feb 03|
This election is not only about sending Buhari to Daura only but it is also about showing all these politicians that the power belongs to the people. If we succeed in kicking out Buhari, trust me all of them will seat up. It will be clear to them that who ever deceives or go against the will of the people will be thrown out. Nigerians need to show this during this election- No matter how popular you are, if you mess up we throw you out, Shikena.
|Politics / Afenifere, NEF, Ohaneze, PANDEF, Others Endorse Atiku by gbigbega: 10:18pm On Feb 03|
The Presidential ambition of the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar got a major boost on Sunday as leaders of major regional bodies across the country threw their weight behind his presidential candidacy.
Coming under the auspices of Nigeria Leaders and Elders, the leaders of Afenifere, Northern Elders Forum, Ohaneze Ndigbo, Middle Belt Forum and the Pan Niger Delta Forum said they were endorsing the Atiku Abubakar for the February 16 presidential election.
President of Ohaneze Ndibgo, John Nwodo said President Muhammadu Buhari has put the nation’s security in jeopardy and should not be allowed to come back as President, adding that under his leadership, Nigeria is undergoing constitutional deadlock.
Leader of the Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo make mockery of the President, saying a man who would endorse two governorship candidates for one state is not fit to continue as Nigerian President.
Adebanjo said the President has shown clearly that he was incapable of leading the country further as he has lost control of even his Party and speaks at cross purpose with his party chairman.
Former Minister of Information, Chief Edwin Clarke accused the Buhari government of working against the interest of the Niger Delta, replacing sons of the area in key appointments in the country.

|Politics / Re: FIRS Breaks All-time Record, Generates N5.3trn In One Year by gbigbega: 7:59pm On Jan 07|
The mirage in this FIRS and all collection made by this government is this. FIRS generated 5.x trillion in 2018, Customs Generated 1.x trillion, NNPC generates 1.554 Trillion.... TSA.... money borrowed....bla blah blah... and yet we are not able to fund an N8 trillion budget up to 50% in 2018. Reason:- No money to fund it. Who are they deceiving?
Another figure that doesn't add up is how NNPC can generate N1.554 trillion and FIRS generates N5.3trillion, soooo FIRS now makes about 4 times what we make in the oil and gas?

|Family / Praise God For Something In 2018 by gbigbega: 6:49pm On Dec 31, 2018|
Usually the year ends with a lot of us wishing we could get more out of it. Some of us a frustrated, some disappointed and some are afraid, 2019 is just some few hours away.
Despite all this, there is need to look back and thank God for something he did, if for nothing that you are still alive today is immeasurable grace. Some had what you are currently looking for but are dead today and will be very willing to trade it just for another chance to breath again.
Lets use this opportunity to say thank you Lord for your love, a job, for food, for family, for opportunities that came our way and even for the bad things we went through.
Say something to Thank God for 2018.

My brother I was about to say something similar. This year alone they have only release 10% of the budget for infrastructure. 10% of what is meant for the nation. its so sad and wicked. yet some hungry people will still come here and tell us he is the best. These are the people that makes the Oyinbos call Nigerians Monkeys.
|Celebrities / Re: 'May God Punish You' - Daddy Freeze Tells Woman Who Cautioned Him Over Shiloh by gbigbega: 4:55pm On Dec 08, 2018|
Yes he did and he also destroyed the temple and commanded Jerusalem to be destroyed, oh he also destroyed humans and the world. If we are takiing God by what you guys call him, Jerusalem should not have been rebuilt, humans should no longer serve God and We should not go to church again because God has once destroyed them because of their sins. SMH.
Bible says the word of God is foolishness to the perishing, they cannot understand it because they are spiritually discerned. I can only pray for your to stop being a sheeple after the heresy of Daddy Freeze. It only leads to destruction.

i have never seen this type of government before. External reserve climb to $42b and you have only given out 10% of this years budget. Go an ask most of the ministries, they will tell you they have just 10% of their capital expenditure- translating to no money for the people. SMH

Please what is your suggesting for renumeration for a new start-up Software Dev firm. I am looking to expand my Software company from a one man to about 3-4 developer company. I have ideas of great solutions but think i need more hands to implement it on time.
I want to ask what you think will be a startup but fair amount to start with for developers who will most likely be retrained.
|Politics / Re: Atiku Attacks Tinubu Over Support For Buhari by gbigbega: 5:36pm On Nov 03, 2018|
have you noticed recently that Buhari have unleashed a lot of social media commentators on nairaland. They are always the set to comment before the unbiased Nigerians see the thread, after which they run away.
I've got news for you, you contract job will expire on the 16th of February, 2019.

Yes he will. The name Emmanuel is called Emma, Eman, in my village they call it Manu. So no matter which of them you call, a person bearing Emmanuel will answer even in Antarctica. The only thing is that the person will know the origin, tribe or relationship of the caller.
E.g. if somebody calls Manu, in London, he will know that is village people as located him again in London.

|Politics / Re: Governor Dave Umahi Splashes N500m On Pastors by gbigbega: 9:37pm On Oct 24, 2018|
And you think it is that very N500M that will do listed. So without that N500m he gave to some set of people to alleviate their poverty, government wont be able to build schools and hospitals again abi? What do you say to the government billions spent on building Mosque in the north, buying rams and going to Mecah and also Jerusalem. These are all government projects - they have a federal government funded Pilgrim board. Will you call those wasteful spending too?
Must you always rise to resist when any good thing is done to the pastors?
|Politics / Re: Governor Dave Umahi Splashes N500m On Pastors by gbigbega: 5:18pm On Oct 24, 2018|
my brother, I beg try to just take religion out of it. maybe it will help you to see that the pastors in question are also citizen which he swore by law to protect. If he gave the money to them to alleviate their poverty, not promote their religion. He is only fulfilling is mandate to the people of his state. The fact that they are pastors doesnt change the fact that he is doing poverty alleviation. Afterall, there are federal government prilgrim board, funding peoples religious voyage to Mecca and Jerusalem.
|Politics / Re: Governor Dave Umahi Splashes N500m On Pastors by gbigbega: 12:18pm On Oct 24, 2018|
Hypocrite, so the pastors are not citizens of Nigeria, whose lives need to be improved abi? You are not defending your faith, you are degrading it, working for the advancement of impoverishing the people of God. If you are defending your faith you will be happy that those who have given themselves to the service of your faith are being appreciated
|Politics / Re: Governor Dave Umahi Splashes N500m On Pastors by gbigbega: 12:13pm On Oct 24, 2018|
For God sake just for once remove the name Pastor from this and imagine he gave his people, his constituency or even a Local Government the N500M. Rising to always resist any good thing that has the name pastor attached to it is devilish, hypocritical and anti-christ. The Pastors he gave the money to are also LG members, constituency member and Nigerians. He didn't give them to build church, he gave them to alleviate their suffering and yet you cannot see the good in it. Do you think the money will alleviate the lives of people in an LGA as much as it will if he gives it to these pastors, considering the fact that politicians in such LGA will never allow it to trickle down?
I am sure you would have praise him if he gave N500M to prisoners, Agberos, market women abi? because to you it is more justified to give to such people than too give to men of God.
Be careful how you spread satanism and promote resistance towards the people of God.

Its logical to think that way but the 1999 consitutions does not agree with you. I think your answer is in what Iwu said
“However, we the initiators of the inconclusive elections realised that our proposal was against the provisions of the 1999 Constitution (as Amended), particularly the presidential and the governorship elections and returns.
in this instance, according to the constitution, there can only be a re-run if it as to do with senate, house of rep etc not governorship and presidential that constitution clearly states how to run and win.
