‘Nigeria is Sick’ – Al Mustapha.

A former Chief Security Officer To Late General Sani Abacha, Major
General Hamza Al-Mustapha, has attributed the current unrest in the country to institutional decay saying only Institutional Revolution would restore sanity in the system.

He stated this on Wednesday evening in Abuja during the second
Christian/Muslim interactive engagement on Peace, Unity and Justice
organised by the President of Christian Association of Nigeria, Pastor
Ayo Oritsejafor.

At the event, the CAN President stated that with Muslims and
Christians resolving to tolerate and respect each other’s faith, the
ongoing national conference had great potentials of bringing lasting
solution to Nigeria.

Al-Mustapha, who was invited to the one-day conference by CAN,
maintained that people had to understand that the country was not like
it used to be when some disgruntled elements used religion to cause
problem and got away with it.

He said, “Nigeria is indeed sick and it did not start today. Our faith
speaks and that is the anchor point. Our problem is that of mutual
suspicion, lack of understanding and in a way, greed, naira speaks.

“Whether we like it or not, Nigeria deserves institutional revolution
for it to be. Revolution in what sense Tolerance, knowledge,
understanding, statemanship, commitment and honesty irrespective of
who and where. We must learn to speak the truth, it does not matter
who is involved,” he said.

While expressing happiness on the ongoing national conference,
Oritsejafor said Nigerians were all pursuing justice, equity, love and
understanding “which will ultimately usher in lasting peace in
Nigeria.”

He said the confab would usher in lasting peace in Nigeria, if all
people including the delegates work for its success.

He said having a clear understanding of the wrong perceptions on how
Muslims or Christians view each other with a view to taking the
correction that “we are one'”, would go a long way to restore the
country to its glorious days.

#WagesOfSin: Pastor Drops Dead After Confessing to Congregation.

A pastor has dropped dead in front of his congregation after his wife
forced him to confess that he’d been unfaithful.

Mrs Christine Davis had confronted her husband publicly about an
infidelity in his past and wouldn’t let him be until he confessed.

Bishop Bobby Davis, pastor at Miracle Faith World Outreach Church in
Bridgeport, Connecticut, dropped dead after allegedly confessing to
his congregation that he’d had an affair years ago.

“After the service on Sunday the bishop’s family asked us to remain in
the church and the bishop confessed to us something that happened long
ago,” Judy Stovall, an elder of the church, told the Connecticut Post.
“He wanted to come clean with all of us. He wanted to ask our
forgiveness.”

“We were shouting, ‘We forgive you, we love you.’ But the stress of
all of it – he had a heart attack,” Stovall said. “I held his head as
he lay on the floor. Our congregation is hurting now.”

The Christian Post reported a slightly different version of the
incident, based on a congregant who wished to remain anonymous.

“He (Bishop Davis) had confessed it (infidelity) personally to his
wife prior to the service, and she called a meeting after church with
just the members and the members stayed. He wasn’t there at the time;
he was somewhere else apparently. Neither of them were in the service
that morning. They had one of their pastors do the service,” according
to the source.

“From what I was told, she (Christine Davis) told the congregation
what he had done. And so, when he comes through the door he had no
idea what he was walking into. So it wasn’t even, ‘We’re gonna make an
announcement today,’ in a unified way as a couple,” the source noted.

“I’m told that when he walked through the door she basically told him,
‘Tell them what you just told me,’ which is what induced the heart
attack, because it’s not like he was walking into it knowing,” the
source told the Christian Post.

“She said it and he said, ‘Yes, that’s right.’ She asked him to say
who exactly it was. And he said, ‘Well, it doesn’t matter [because]
that person has passed. God forgive, let’s get past it.’ Apparently it
was his family members who reacted out in anger, from what I
understand. It was not the congregation,” the source noted.

“It got physical. One of the sons attacked him. I was told one of the
daughters poured water on him. It was like something out of, not even
like the Old Testament, but a bad reality TV show,” said the source.
“My heart is so devastated because it could have been handled in a
private manner.”

Bishop Davis was known as a very black and white preacher. He also had
an affiliation with The Potters House and Bishop T.D. Jakes.

According to a church biography, the couple initially held prayer
meetings in the home of Christine’s mother. In 1987 they moved to the
Harriet Street building in Bridgeport, and in 1998 they opened a new
church facility in suburban Monroe.
