Now, there is a difference between judging and correcting someone in love. We should be able to differentiate between both. When someone judges, it isn't actually about you. It's about them and their limitations, insecurities and needs.
Fake or Genuine Christianity?
Pastor AMOS D. DADA, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Nigeria's neo-feudal representative democracy at crossroads
Rev. Fr. FRANCIS A. OBORJI, The Vatican
The question is, 'What really is in the minds of those politicians, who attack and intimidate anybody who dares call for renegotiating the Nigerian union?' Why are members of the ruling class, especially from the North, always against the call for restructuring; sovereign national conference; agitation of the oppressed indigenous ethnic-communities for referendum for self-determination of their people?

Nigeria at the Dilemma of Absence of 'Unity of Spirit'
Rev. Fr. FRANCIS A. OBORJI, The Vatican
The Nigerian problem is the inability of the ruling class and elites to return to the founding story of the Nigerian state, to the drawing board, to work towards fine-tuning the inherited colonial political system and arbitrary geopolitical configuration of diverse and often mutually hostile ethnic-nationalities logged together into one nation-state by the British colonial masters.

2. By killing Shia Muslims. 3. By empowering Fulani terrorism all over the country to ethnically cleanse minority Christian communities in south Kaduna and invade farms and sack villages. This is the silent genocide going on in Nigeria. 5. By padding the budgets and doing nothing to close the loopholes, which make it easy for politicians to gain access to public funds. 6. By ethnically cleansing the army of Christian and southern officers.

Buhari’s attempt to restructure Nigeria as Fulani homeland must not succeed
