A WORD FOR YERIMA AND THE PAEDOPHILES IN POWER BY FEMI FANI-KAYODE




 
 
I expressed my concerns about the issue of paedophilia and child brides in Nigeria quite extensively in an essay that I wrote last week titled ''A Nation of Perverts and Paedophiles'' which was widely published and which attracted a lot of rejoinders and commentaries from other writers and commentators from both sides of the divide. I do not intend to cover the same ground or repeat the same arguments here but kindly permit me to make a final contribution to the debate in this piece. 

  
The good news is that no matter what anyone thinks or says and regardless of whichever side of the divide one is on when it comes to this issue at least the Nigerian people are now talking about a subject which, hitherto, had been regarded as being ''off limits'' and taboo and which had been essentially swept under the carpet. I commend the Nigerian press, the website magazines, the bloggers and the electronic media for standing firm, rising up to the occasio and bringing the matter alive and one can only hope and pray that they will keep the fire burning by continuing to reflect the heated discussions and various opinions on this issue. I was particularly impressed with and encouraged by the editorials of some of our leading newspapers on this issue including 'ThisDay On Sunday', 'The Nation On Sunday', 'Leadership On Sunday' and 'The Sunday Vanguard' which were all published on Sunday 28th July and which were titled "In Support Of The Girl Child'', ''No Cover For Paedophiles''. ''Much Ado about Child Marriage'' and ''Building Nigeria On Deceit'' respectively. With contributions like that from very serious and credible mediums like those there is still hope for the girl-child in Nigeria. I urge all those that have not read these contributions to please find them and do so.

www.mytestimonys.blogspot.com; How did you become a born again Christian?

I loved the things of God but I failed to see the God of the things, I was bumping into churches. Believe it or not, one day I woke up at 1am in the morning thinking it was 7 am and I decided to drive to Onitsha. At the Melkin Hill, the police stopped me and asked where I was going, I told them I was headed to Onitsha, they asked if I realised the time, I said it was half past 7, they said it was past 1am, ‘ what are you going there to do’? I said I was going to look for a church where I could go and fellowship and get prayed for and they said there must be something either right or wrong with me. Wherever I saw a night vigil, I went there; I was searching all over the place. 


Part of my life that is closely related to my finding the Lord was my life in exile which I will talk about later but when I came back from exile, I was broken down, confused, I didn’t know what to do next, I didn’t know the God that saved me and kept me alive from the Biafra War, I forgot to recognise the God that kept me in exile, in a foreign country and taught me how to communicate with the people. So I came back still searching.


 One day, I drove my little Volkswagen to the village, I was coming back, it was a1303 SL, a posh Volkswagen. As I was coming, I saw a young girl on the  road and she waved, she needed a lift and I said to myself, ‘Ha, that’s a good one, let me see what will come out of it’. So I picked her, she sat in front of the car, hardly did I drive five minutes when I saw another girl and I thought ‘oh, it will be nice to have two’. So I stopped and she said she was going to Enugu and I asked her to come in. She sat at the back so we took off. Not quite long from where we took off, the one in front said to me , ‘ Brother, I have something to tell you’ and in my mind I said, ‘Brother?! Where did I meet this strange person calling me brother?’ Then the one at the back said, ‘Oh, Sister! I didn’t know you were one of us’.

Saudi Arabia sends 2 men to prison for converting Arabian Woman to Christianity



 
The converted Saudi woman


I believe Saudi Arabia is at the forefront of violating fundamental human rights as far as the Freedom of Religion is concerned.
 A Lebanese man was sentenced to six years in prison and 300 lashes for converting a Saudi woman, while a Saudi man was sentenced to two years in prison and 200 lashes for helping her leave the country.

In Saudi Arabia, it is illegal for Muslims to abandon their faith, it is known as apostasy, openly practicing other religions is also illegal.
The Saudi woman (name withheld) has been granted asylum in Sweden

Pastor Tayo Adeyemi dies at 49




Although the world may be mourning, I celebrate the life of this great man of God with an uncanny knowledge of the bible. He combined a doctorate degree with the word of God, the result is the New Wine Church, United Kingdom.


In 49 years, he has impacted this generation by taking the gospel of Jesus Christ all over the world. He will be greatly missed but then I know he is in a better place. This is a man who fulfilled his God ordained purpose.

I celebrate you Dr. Adeyemi
