ANGLICAN CHURCH CHIDES CORRUPT NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT


ARCHBISHOP PETER AKINOLA AND LEADERS OF THE NIGERIAN JUDICIARY.

Yesterday, I commended the laudable and remarkable decision of the Anglican Church of Nigeria to severe ties with the Church of England and her fellow harlots in other parts of Europe and America where they have welcomed the devil to corrupt and pollute their temples in homosexuality. Today, I am very happy to bring you another commendable news of the chastisement of the corrupt ruling government of Nigeria by the Anglican Church of Nigeria. And I believe that the most Reverend (Dr.) Peter Akinola, the Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Nigeria is serious and not just making such populist public statements to impress the gullible ignorant masses of Nigeria. But, to speak out against the tyranny of corrupt and wicked rulers in Nigeria. We should encourage fearless Christian leaders and denounce those who have compromised their faith in exchange for filthy lucre.

Anglican church chides Nigeria's "scheming" rulers

ABUJA (Reuters) - Nigeria's Anglican primate on Thursday challenged the country's politicians to curb their "ostentatious" lifestyle and called for an immunity clause protecting them from prosecution to be scrapped.

Archbishop Peter Akinola also said politicians were "scheming" ahead of the next general election in 2007 instead of working to alleviate the suffering of the poor masses in Africa's most populous nation.

"The political class are not helping matters as scheming for the 2007 elections seems to override every other consideration," the influential Akinola, who leads the world's second largest Anglican community, told a news conference.
"The suffering of the vast majority is as glaring as the ostentatious living of a privileged few," he said.

His words will come as music to the ears of most Nigerians, who live in poverty with few basic services like running water or electricity in a country that exports billions of dollars' worth of oil every year. Decades of corruption, mismanagement and neglect under successive military rulers have left the country's infrastructure in disarray.

Six years after a return to civilian rule, few of Nigeria's 140 million people have felt any improvement despite government talk of "dividends of democracy". Many still see politics as a money-making venture rather than a mission of public service.
One recent controversy saw the governor of the oil-producing state of Rivers -- where armed conflict, sabotage and kidnappings are rife -- come under fire for building a new government house with helipad and pool and buying a private jet.
Akinola said a constitutional clause giving immunity from prosecution to elected officials had done more harm than good.

"When leaders are clearly living beyond their means or where there is evidence of funds being transferred into foreign bank accounts, if the immunity clause should be called to their aid it makes the whole idea ridiculous," he said.

Governor Joshua Dariye of Plateau State is under investigation by British police over alleged money-laundering and has been charged with embezzling public funds in a Nigerian court, but has successfully claimed immunity from prosecution.
Akinola's call comes a day after another governor, from the oil-producing state of Bayelsa, was charged in a London court with money-laundering. Police had found 1 million pounds in cash at his London house. He denies any wrongdoing.

Just trying to understand the individual responsible for the below comment via San Francisco Liberal blog.

Kill Bill.
Kill Bill.
Kill Bill.
Kill Bill.
Kill Bill.
Kill Bill.
Every evil
Is of the devil.
Save us from the peril.
Who will not fulfill his will
Will lose his will.

Snoop,
Did you watch the film "Kill Bill"?

The comment is rhetorical.

Your posts are on the agonies and ironies of self-destructive instincts and hypocritical nuances in the psyche of America and the stigma and trauma of the Negro in America often coloured bad by the conservative American Whites and you couldn't understand my rhetoric?

Have you watched the film, "Kill Bill"?

Snoop,
read the burden of all your posts and compare the notes with the erroneous misrepresentation of the Negro in "Kill Bill" as shown in the role of Vivica Fox who had a bloody encounter with the White blonde heroine and the White blonde killed the negro woman.

Only people who are not well read to be intelligent enough misunderstand my figures of speech.

Please, don't disappoint me.

I have already dealt with the subject of racism in American culture in my previous posts on Nigerian Times. I also produced over 90% of the Family Planning booklets used by the Planned Parenthood in Nigeria. I was once a refugee child in one of the bloodiest civil wars in Africa and I have known one of the most notorious armed robbers and killers in the crime records of Nigeria. Do you want more? I understand violence and the agonies and ironies of human conflicts. Snoop,

Orikinla:

With all due respect, O, I always wonder when I get responses like yours.

“Your posts are on the agonies and ironies of self-destructive instincts and hypocritical nuances in the psyche of America and the stigma and trauma of the Negro in America.”

Just whom are you trying to impress, what is your “specific” point.

How do you go from:

Kill Bill.
Kill Bill.
Kill Bill.
Kill Bill.
Kill Bill.
Kill Bill.
Every evil
Is of the devil.
Save us from the peril.

TO: “I was once a refugee child in one of the bloodiest civil wars in Africa and I have known one of the most notorious armed robbers and killers in the crime records of Nigeria.”

Again SO what? Not to diminish your life or experiences, but the bottom line is all of us in blogsphere are a bunch of aliases and faceless text. I don’t bit more know about your involvement with “armed robbers” than someone else posting as Jesus Christ Himself.

What does that have to do with Bill Bennett and his comments being misinterpreted in the media? What does that have to do with Abortion?
Dude, you have absolutely no idea who I am, where I have been, my experiences, my education, my knowledge, my spirituality, my strengths, my weaknesses, pain, sorrows, joys, what makes me tick, why I have the views that I do.

One thing I will tell you since that was the first and maybe the only time you visit my blog is I have a great deal of disdain for white liberalism, I don’t like in any shape form or method liberalism and Democrats and their destructive and corrosive affects on blacks in America and America in general.
Its clear that NO headway is going to be made between us, but I love to hear from folks.
But my posts on my blog are just that, MINE!
They are there to make specific points AND I post them to counter the utter garbage I see on liberal blogs all the time. I almost EXCLUSIVELY read liberal blogs. I like to study liberals and why they have such “interesting” views. I’ll leave it there to be polite.

Anywho good to hear from you.

Peace, Snoop
