That's the spirit.
Lagos is often a pacesetter.
there's a reason why its the Center of Excellence.

I jus don't get it. Whn will it b proper for us to start using our brains and forgetting dogma and routine. A body has to organise it and d church took up d responsibility. I think d church ought to b commended, besides are members of d church frm heaven or frm nigeria?

Brethren,
This is a desperate and urgent call from the throne of Grace that the brethren in Christ are about to make the greatest error of their lives by selling off their kingly heritage for a mess of pottage called "change". Change into what? Change into what happened to Egypt , Sudan, Lybia, Algeria and Turkey which were once flourishing Christian countries but because the brethren there also sold their souls on the premise of "it does not matter" they became the last set of Christians in those countries! Remember Turkey! It was the beautiful Christian country called Constantinople! Today it is history! The foundation of the planned islamisation of Nigeria was taken in 1989 in Abuja by OIC. Since then they have not looked back! Our Government gave them a contribution of 21 billion dollars then! Wonder then where the funding of boko Haram is coming from? They have painfully now infiltrated one of the biggest denominations in Nigeria and offered one of their best Pastors -a Professor,a Vice presidential Slot! Now a larger community of that denomination now promotes this "change"! They did it in Constantinople ! Remember brethren, that the biggest denomination of Christians in the North - the EYN has been wiped off! All their churches burnt. You may say that it is the North it can't get here! They said the same thing in Sudan, Libya, Algeria and Constantinople! How come the brethren have become so dulled in the Spirit that they no longer are sensitive?
We may be the last Christians in Nigeria if this grave error the brethren is about to commit is not averted! Our Lord Jesus is greatly miffed by our irresponsibility as His Followers! How come we no longer hear Him! The Great shepherd of the Sheep! How come that Christians have forgotten that this country was made ungovernable by these same people and Christians are holding the wrong person responsible? How come? The signs of the eventual Islamization of Nigeria are awash in the 1999 constitution where Islam, Sharia are mentioned more than 100 times.! Not a single mention of Christ or Christianity! You say it does not matter. Now, mark it you cannot amend the constitution without a bitter progrom!
Brethren, the night is here! We must contend for the faith and our heritage which was handed once and for all to us by our maker!
Don't relent, sound this trumpet by forwarding same to all your contacts! We will not be the last Christians in Nigeria! Amen.

Biased people. How would a political debate be held in a church? Is it that all the candidates are Christians? Later, they would say they want to islamise the nation. What is the meaning of this? After all, everybody is saying Nigeria is a secular state.

I SAW SOME APC PAID AGENTS REMOVING POSTERS OF GEJ AND REPLACING WITH PA BUHARI.
THIS IS NOT FAIR, THEY SHOULD ALLOW THE PEOPLE TO DECIDE WHO THEY WANT TO VOTE IN

Why would a debate take place in the house of God for Christ sake?

Anonymous said...

Wow.. I was there live and i can tell u that Ambode is a big olodo! He isnt really smart! The people that are really smart are Jimi Agbaje, LP rep and mega party rep. Its just that we all know that Lp amd mega party are going nowhere. the real competiton is between Jimi & Ambode(simply bcos of his party). Pls lets all vote with our conscience and not for party! Also those of u asking why the church is getting involved- I too asked the same question ooh! But come to think of it, it was a very free and fair debate. Very open. Besides it would have been different if the church had just campaigned for one person! No-one organizes debates in Nigeria, so i dont think it is out of order for the church to organize one! It was really interesting! I cannot forget was the Bishop of Lagos West said during his address, he said that God will hold them(aspirants) accountable if they make promises in Church which they dont plan to do when they get elected!

Debate is ok. It would allow us to listen to what and what they have to offer.

Hmmmmmm nigeria politricks I wonder. Why do we always over do things we learnt?

love the idea of having a debate, really do but I don't like that its a church that organised it, and since when did we have 17 political parties? had no idea!

This is really good. It looks very organized. It is debates like this we need so that the right candidate can be voted into office. Hopefully other candidates follow.

Seun Oke said...

I wonder why people here complained and found it odd that a debate took place in a church building. It is a building with chairs to for human beings to seat for programmes! Or is a debate devilish?

The Church is an institution, why cant is organise a debate? Are members of the church not human beings and Nigerians? I thought there is freedom of association for all citizens

Moreover, it is a matter of choice, the candidates did not have to honour the invitations. They only seized an opportunity to improve their chances of being elected. And any institution has the freedom to do the same!

I wish Agbaje luck in the election ,and I pray he triumphs over the evil ones running Lagos like and Animal Farm.I am sure that with the dignity he has shown in these debates we will soon be freed from those who believe that Lagos is their personal property
