Niger Delta Resurgency, Ijaws declare war on books

“A book must stir you up to do something. To be, we have to think.” ~ Ken Saro-Wiwa"

For decades, the Niger Delta has been engaged in agitations over the exploitation and neglect of the region by the Federal Government of Nigeria. The region is responsible for over 90% of the revenue that accrues to the Nigerian State. 
Isaac Boro, an Ijaw Nationalist is a forerunner of the Niger Delta struggle. Being a man of conviction, youthful passion and exuberance, he led the region into an historic declaration of the Niger Delta Republic characterized by arms bearing which has since defined the Niger Delta struggle. 
But things are changing in the Niger Delta, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, an Ijaw man became President of Nigeria and the zone was pacified. 
The former President who launched a National bring back the books campaign and oversaw a Niger Delta amnesty programme that witnessed a lot of emphasis on education and training seems to have set an agenda for his people unsuspectingly.

One Philippine priest had been suspended for riding hoverboard during mass On December 24, 2015, before the final blessing of the Christmas Eve mass, as a way of greeting his parishioners, the priest sang a Christmas song, while going around the nave standing on a hover board.

The following is a Diocese of San Pablo, Laguna, Philippines statement released on Facebook on the ‘hoverboard-riding priest’ issue.The Eucharist demands utmost respect and reverence. It is the Memorial of the Lord’s Sacrifice. It is the source and summit of Christian life. It is the Church’s highest form of worship.
