Published

on

The Christian Association of Nigeria has urged political office holders and other stakeholders to discourage immoral activities.

It said instead, they should promote justice and moral programmes and activities that are aimed at pleasing God Almighty and humanity.

CAN particularly kicked against the ongoing reality show, Big Brother Naija, describing it as evil and urged well-meaning Nigerians to join in the protest against the show.

Chairman of CAN in Rivers State, Stanley Dimkpa made the call to scrap BBNAIJA while lauding 3 Local government Chairmen that best managed the COVID-19 pandemic in the state.

Dimkpa stated that the immorality being portrayed in the BBNAIJA show should be vehemently condemned because it breeds evil.

“As Christians this, this ceremony is aimed at promoting diligence and reinvigorating a positive lifestyle and collectively making our state better.

“A state where tribe, creed, political party and church do not matter in the scheme of things but a state where equity, equality, qualification, truth and hard work are necessary criteria and conditions for justice.

“Promotion and appointment in all fields of life where reward and good morals will encourage everyone to abhor evil and do what is right. Romans 12:9.

“All these are needed to replace what we have in our world today where societal ills, crimes and immoral behaviours are geometrically increasing due to bad governance, poverty and reward for wrong doing, such as Big Brother Naija.

“I want to emphasize Big Brother Naija because all of us have to fight collectively to stop this immoral act and injustice in our land, as Christians and Africans, we have respect for mankind.

“For those of us that have allowed our friends and families to encourage the patronage of Big Brother Naija, know that it is an evil and we must clampdown on it,” he said (Daily Post)

Gospel Singer Sammie Okposo has died at 51

According to reports online, the highly talented music producer slumped Friday morning and died.

Earlier this year, Sammie made headlines after he publicly apologized to his wife, Ozioma for cheating on her with another lady in the United States.

Recall that on January 24, an American-based lady identified as African Doll accused him of impregnating her during one of his tours in the US.

The lady said the gospel singer hid his marital status from her when she met him in Dallas and they started an intimate affair which eventually led to the pregnancy.

African Doll said when she discovered she was pregnant and told Sammie about it, his attitude changed and he abandoned her after asking her to abort it and she refused.

Sammie later confessed to having an extramarital affair with the lady when he tendered a public apology to his wife, family, friends, and fans on his Instagram page.

The gospel singer deactivated his Instagram account amid the backlash over the issue. He also revealed that he will be stepping back from ministerial work until “full restoration”

In the apology which was shared on his Instagram page, the singer lamented over the incident which happened in 2021 and also declared that he was now free from sin.

By Cecilia Ijuo

The Director-General, National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), Otunba Olusegun Runsewe, says the agency is harnessing technology to reposition the arts and culture sub-sector in Nigeria.

Runsewe told the News Agency of Nigeria(NAN) in Abuja on Sunday that technology came in handy for the agency during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

He said NCAC was one of the agencies that continued its activities to promote the country’s values due to its ability to deploy technology.

Runsewe said with the use of technology, the agency was able to carry out its activities with little or no hitch, adding that there was minimal human contact.

“During COVID-19 pandemic, the agency was one of the few sub-sectors that were busy with activities.

“We were having forum every Saturday then.

“We were the only ones that had a drive in theatre, where people could watch from their cars.

“We also had a radio network that was connected to car radios within the vicinity to making it easy for people to have clear audio, ” he said.

Runsewe said given the dynamic nature of the society, it was only proper for the agency to keep up with the times to make meaningful impact.

He said, “there is no way you can transfer information that technology will not be involved, so it is critical.

“Part of what we do is to adopt technology, particularly in our effort to reach the youth, who are technology savvy.

“We all know we cannot reach them effectively without the use of technology.”

The NCAC boss said the agency would continue to advance its use of technology for the development of the culture and tourism sector and the country at large.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that recent Gross Domestic Product (GDP) report by National Bureau of Statistics indicated that Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector contributed 18.44 per cent to Nigeria’s GDP in the second quarter of 2022.

It further reports that the sector saw a 6.55 per cent growth rate from first the first quarter 2022.(NAN)
