(The Church Blog) 14 years after, Daystar Christmas Carol remains the carol of all carols » YNaija


Monday, December 11, 2017 - It was 12:18 pm. 18 minutes after the time scheduled for the opening of registration for Daystar Christian Centre Carol. I was struggling with a slow phone and an internet that seemed to have been attacked by spiritual forces of some sort. After a while, the page opened and all available halls were filled. Sigh! A friend called minutes later and before picking, I could decipher what the conversation was about already – Daystar Christmas Carol ticket. Apparently, she didn’t get any ticket too. What started in 2003 as a 2-3 hours session of Christmas songs, Dance and God’s word has evolved from one level of prestige to a higher one. Daystar Christmas Carol has easily become a standard for Christmas carols. And they do it so easily – etching every year’s edition in our memories. Thousands of people, logged in from Nigeria and several other countries of the world showing their love for Daystar and enjoying the massive beauty that the Daystar Christmas Carol represents ...continue

PHOTO: SAJJAD HUSSAIN / AFP India’s opposition Congress party named Rahul Gandhi as its new leader on Monday after years of speculation, calling it a “historic occasion”.

Festering terror attacks - The Nation Nigeria


Sunday, December 10, 2017 - The war against Boko Haram is far from won. Not with their renewed escapades in the north-east that leave in their trail, sorrow and awe. Not with the frequency of such attacks and their high success ratio. That these serial killings no longer attract the umbrage associated with them in the early days of the insurgency is a measure of how accustomed the society has become with them. The frequency of these attacks and the high casualty rate they entail including soldiers and civilians, have raised fresh doubts on some of the claims bandied by the government on the state of the war. President Buhari had in an interview with BBC two years ago said Boko Haram had been ‘technically defeated’ and that Nigeria had technically won the war. Asked what he meant, he said “my own description is that they can no longer mobilize enough forces to attack police and military barracks and destroy aircraft like they used to do. But they can regroup and go after soft targets”. About the same period, Se ...continue

India’s Congress party names Rahul Gandhi president


Monday, December 11, 2017 - India’s opposition Congress party named Rahul Gandhi as its new leader on Monday, capping years of speculation about the scion of the dynasty that has ruled the country for much of its independent history. The 47-year-old has long been seen as the likely successor of his mother Sonia, who took over as party president nearly two decades ago following the assassination of her husband Rajiv. But doubts emerged after Rahul led the party to its worst ever general election defeat in 2014, gaining a reputation as a reluctant politician who lacks the ruthlessness to succeed in the cutthroat politics of the world’s largest democracy. Party workers cheered as senior Congress leader Mullappally Ramachandran announced that Rahul, who stood for election unopposed, would be the next president of the party his family has led for generations. “I hereby declare Shri Rahul Gandhi elected as the President of the Indian National Congress,” he told reporters, calling it “a ...continue
