Priests, Maintain Spartan Lifestyles & Stop Taking Selfies, Pope Francis

Pope Francis, on Wednesday, chastised priests and bishops who take pictures with their cell phones during mass, saying they should focus on God instead.
Francis told tens of thousands of people at his weekly audience in St. Peter’s Square “lift up your hearts, not your cell phones to take pictures”, referring to a communion prayer in the Roman Catholic Mass.
He described the use of cell phone during mass as “very ugly thing; it makes me very sad when I celebrate mass here in the piazza or in the basilica and I see so many cell phones held up.
“Not only by the faithful, but also by some priests and even bishops.
“The mass is not a show so remember, no cell phones”, he said, prompting laughter and applause from the crowd.
Francis, the leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Roman Catholics, regularly urged the faithful to be more spiritual and his priests and bishops to be humble.
Shortly after his election in 2013, he said it pained him to see priests driving flashy cars and eager to use the latest smartphone.
The pope is driven around in a simple blue Ford Focus and is not known to have ever used a cell phone in public since his election.

Watch The World’s Most Expensive Car: $12.8 Million Rolls Royce Sweptail (video)

When it comes to exclusivity, a Rolls Royce preaches  and breathes it.

They are vintage cars on the roads and are always in limited edition. It comes with class and panache. They’re also some of the most expensive cars in the world.But Rolls Royce has outdone itself this time around and the rest of the car makers with this.

Have you heard of Rolls Royce Sweptail?

It is an exclusive luxurious car made specially for a unique customer

The car is the only one of its kind in the world and costs a princely sum of  $12.8million! The company says the customer, who is a collector of expensive one-off items like super-yachts and private jets, came to the manufacturer asking for a one-off car.
So they made him one.

The car features custom coach-work like the Maharajas used to order back in early last century. The car, probably based on the Wraith, is a two-seater with a full panoramic sunroof. The roof tapers down sharply in a shape similar to that of racing yachts that the customer desired.
The interiors have been handcrafted and we’re guessing many acres of rainforest would have had to be chopped down and many a bovine killed for the wood and leather. The thing we like best, however, is the hidden attaché cases that hold laptops behind the doors on either side.

Can you beat that?

Femi Fani Kayode

Femi Fani-Kayode, former Minister of Aviation has described Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, as a pernicious liar and a sanctimonious, self-serving dwarf.

Osinbajo had on Monday during the legislative economic summit themed “Legislative Framework for Economic Recovery and Sustainable Development”, described incredible things Jonathan did before 2015 general elections as unbridled waste and corruption.
He specifically said that seeks before the 2015 elections, the government of Goodluck Jonathan, ostensibly doled out N100billion and $295million in cash within two weeks.
But in a series of tweets on Tuesday, the PDP chieftain, lambasted the Vice President, telling him to leave former President Jonathan alone.

“100 billion and $289 million was withdrawn in cash by GEJ 2 weeks before the pres. election ostensibly for security”- VP Yemi Osinbajo.
There is nothing worse than a pernicious liar and a sanctimonious, self-serving dwarf. 
Leave Jonathan alone and clean up ur filthy mess!

President Buhari Presents 2018 Budget Estimate

President Buhari

In a bid to meet his administration’s target to restore the budget calendar to the January-December fiscal cycle, President Muhammadu Buhari Tuesday presented the N8.612 trillion 2018 Appropriation Bill to a joint session of the National Assembly, representing a 16 per cent increase over the N7.441 trillion budget for 2017.
Of the N8.6 trillion budget, the Ministry of Power, Works and Housing headed by Mr. Babatunde Fashola, got the lion share of N555.8 billion, signifying the administration’s commitment to infrastructure projects, to expand the economy and create more employment opportunities.

Clad in a light blue traditional babariga and cap with his trademark glasses, Buhari walked into the Green Chambers of the House of Representatives at 2.02 p.m.
He was ushered in by the Deputy Speaker of the House, Hon. Yussuff Sulaimon Lasun, his Senior Special Assistant, National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang, Senate and House Leaders, Ahmed Lawan and Femi Gbajabiamila, and the House Whip, Hon. Alhassan Ado Doguwa.
The event was witnessed by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr. Boss Mustapha; Head of Service, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita; Chief of Staff to the President, Mr. Abba Kyari; Chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) and Zamfara State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara; national executives of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led by the party’s chairman, Chief John Oyegun; the Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udoma Udo Udoma; and his finance counterpart, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, among other ministers and senior government officials.
Tagged the budget of consolidation, the Bill is proposing N2.428 trillion as capital expenditure, representing 30.8 per cent of the budget, N3.494 trillion for recurrent expenditure, N2.014 trillion for debt service, N456 billion for statutory transfers, and N220 billion for the Sinking Fund to retire maturing bonds to local contractors.

The President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, however hinged the early passage of the budget on the cordial relations between the executive arm of government and the legislature.
The key parameters and assumptions for the 2018 budget proposal were set out in the yet-to-be approved 2018-2020 Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) and Fiscal Strategy Paper (FSP), which has been committed to the Senate and House Committees on Finance, Appropriation and National Planning.
These include a benchmark oil price of $45 per barrel, oil production estimate of 2.3 million barrels per day, including condensates, exchange rate of N305/$1 for 2018, real GDP growth of 3.5 per cent and inflation rate of 12.4 per cent.
The estimated total revenue for the 2018 budget was put at N6.607 trillion, 30 per cent more than the 2017 budget estimates. Of the total projected revenue, oil revenue was put at N2.442 trillion, while N4.165 trillion would come from non-oil revenue sources.
The projected deficit in the 2018 budget estimates was put at N2.005 trillion, representing 1.77 per cent of GDP.

According to Buhari, “We plan to finance the deficit partly by new borrowings estimated at N1.699 trillion. Fifty per cent of this borrowing will be sourced externally, while the balance will be sourced domestically.

“The balance of the deficit of N306 billion is to be financed from the proceeds of privatisation of some non-oil assets by the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE).”
Buhari said based on MTEF/FSP parameters, total federally collectible revenue was estimated at N11.983 trillion for 2018.
“Thus, the three tiers of government shall receive about 12 per cent more revenue in 2018 than the 2017 estimates. Of the amount, the sum of N6.387 trillion is expected to be realised from oil and gas sources. Total receipts from the non-oil sector are projected at N5.597 trillion,” the president explained.
Buhari, in an address which lasted for one hour and nine minutes, also presented key capital spending estimates to include N263.10 billion for the Ministry of Transportation, N145 billion for the Ministry of Defence, N118.98 billion for the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, N95.11 billion for the Ministry of Water Resources, and N82.92 billion for the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment.
Others are N63.26 billion for capital projects in the Ministry of Interior, N61.73 billion for the Ministry of Education, N71.11 billion for the Ministry of Health, and N53.89 billion for the Niger Delta Ministry.

Capital spending for Special Intervention Programmes was put at N150.00 billion, N109.6 billion for the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC), N40.30 billion for the Federal Capital Territory, N45 billion for the North East Intervention Fund, N71.20 billion for the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) and N100 billion for Zonal Intervention Funds (ZIFs).
Recurrent expenditure for key ministries such as interior was estimated at N510.87 billion, N435.01 billion for the education ministry, N422.43 billion for the Ministry of Defence and N269.34 billion for the Ministry of Health.

The 2018 budget is also proposing the sum of N9.8 billion for the Mambilla hydro power project, including N8.5 billion as counterpart funding, N12 billion counterpart funding for earmarked transmission lines and sub-stations, N35.41 billion for the National Housing Programme, N10 billion for the Second Niger Bridge, and N300 billion for the construction and rehabilitation of strategic roads.
The 2018 budget will consolidate on the achievements of previous budgets and deliver on Nigeria’s Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP) 2018 – 2020, Buhari told the audience.
The president spent considerable time highlighting the successes of the 2016 budget, probably due to the low implementation of the 2017 budget which was passed in June this year and is expected to end when the new budget is passed.

The president said N1.2 trillion was expended on capital projects in the 2016 budget, adding that 2017 was a year of uncertainty while 2018 is expected to be a year of better outcomes.
“Nigeria’s journey out of the recent recession was a revealing one. We heard many opinions from within and outside Nigeria on how best to address our economic woes. We listened carefully and studied these proposals diligently.

“Our belief has always been that the quickest and easiest solution may not necessarily be the best solution for a nation as diverse as ours. We took our time to create a balanced and equitable response, keeping in mind that only tailored Nigerian solutions can fix Nigeria’s unique problems,” Buhari said.
The president listed the achievements brought about by his policies to include an increase in external reserves to $34 billion as of October 30, 2017, an export-import trade surplus of N506.5 billon by the second quarter of 2017, rise in ranking to 145th position by World Ease of Doing Business report from 169th position, improved tax administration, optimising efficiency in expenditure, increased investment in infrastructure, agricultural and health sector development, and the Social Investment Programme.
“Our Sovereign Wealth Fund, which was established in 2011 with $1 billion, did not receive additional investment for four years when oil prices were as high as US$120 per barrel. However, despite record low oil prices, this administration was able to invest an additional $500 million into the fund,” he said.
Commending the members of the National Assembly for their collaborative support in moving Nigeria forward, Buhari gave the lawmakers the assurances of his strong commitment to deepening executive-legislative relations.

“I appeal to you to swiftly consider and pass the 2018 Appropriation Bill,” he said and expressed hope that the budget would be passed before January 1, 2018.

Read About Daddy Freeze’s Response To Pastor Adeboye’s Stand On Tithing

Daddy Freeze

Controversial OAP, Daddy Freeze has replied the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye’s response to his teachings on tithing.
Read Freeze’ response below…
“Dear Pastor Adeboye,

If you permit me, I will like to humbly seize this opportunity to raise some questions I consider valid.

Why did you say in a viral video, that even a mad person knows that you don’t drink alcohol in a church?

Although from a sentimental point of view, your premise might seem right, but is it really what the Bible teaches us? The book of Deuteronomy 14:22-26, when speaking about paying tithes, instructs us to take our tithe to the place the LORD has chosen, and if the place is too far, we are instructed to sell the portion of our tithe and use it to buy anything our heart desires, listing alcohol as one of the items that could be bought with our tithe. The King James Version says ‘strong drink’, the Holmans Bible says ‘beer’ while the new international version specifies ‘fermented drink’. All the above are forms of alcohol.

So if you say even a mad person knows that you don’t drink alcohol in church, are you suggesting that the modern day church is not the ‘place the LORD has chosen for tithe to be paid and for his name to be worshiped’ as described in the book of Deuteronomy, or are you implying that the Bible was written by lunatics, or are you perhaps doubting God’s sanity?

Another issue I’ll be grateful if you can throw some light upon, is where our first pastors and Daddy GOs, the 12 disciples, collected tithes, or where they instructed the believers who took over the headship of the church from them, to collect tithe.

I humbly suggest, that you kindly address the above questions with biblical evidence, as against whipping up sentiment, or employing what many preachers use, and in my opinion, I consider; ’emotional tactics’.

As the Berean Christian that I am, before accepting any doctrine, I research the scriptures to see if it aligns accordingly, with the word of God.

Thank you sir, I hereby extend my highest considerations and best regards. ~FRZ

#FreeTheSheeple

Deuteronomy 14:26 KJV

[26] And thou shalt bestow that (tithe) money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before the Lord thy God,”

Ali Baba Is Angry With A Fan Calling Him a Hypocrite


.. ………. …    He’s being called an hypocrite for being the Compere at Senate President Saraki’s daughter wedging in Lagos

Ace Nigerian comedian is a jolly good fellow. He’s the grand master of stand up comedian in Nigeria. He has paid his dues and helped many in the industry to grow. In a rare public display of displeasure, he’s livid with anger , Bit why is he angry? Find out…..

Ace Nigerian comedian, Ali Baba who was spotted at Senate President, Bukola Saraki’s daughter’s wedding recently and called out by fans, has replied those who called him a hypocrite.
According to him, nobody has the right to call him out because he’s first a standup comedian, talk show host, actor, ideas consultant and businessman, which means his business is to provide any of the requested services listed. Here’s what he wrote;
“I have addressed this issue before but it seems some people’s stupidity or ignorance is on a dynamic climb. Let me first say that I am a service provider. I am an MC, Stand-Up Comedian, talk show host, actor, ideas consultant and businessman. Which means my business is to provide any of the requested services listed. That said I am a Nigerian and a vocal one too.
I use any platform I am on to talk about the things I observe and experience. I have not stopped being a citizen. So whatever party is in power, can use my services and get served when they step out of line. That cannot change. So I was an MCee at the Sarakis wedding. And the idiots woke up to their refrain again. “There he goes again dining and wining with the people he criticizes. Hypocrite!!” Wow! The wedding was not covered by photographers? Were there no caterers? Were there no event planners? Did they not use an airline to fly into Lagos? How about the decorators? There was media coverage.
All newspapers and magazines. Even the publisher of Thisday and owners of Channels Tv. They attended and provided services. What about the hotel and venue? They provided services. Fashion designers. Jewellers. Cake makers. Drinks and food. Printers. Security services. Makeup artists. Live bands, sound engineers… They all came to offer their services. Just like I did. When these politicians steal us blind, don’t lawyers represent them in court? They are providing services abi? But fools like this @Chrys.chikere can’t phantom that. Don’t these politician attend the same churches that you attend? In the presence of God? How many churches have sent them out?
Or excommunicated them? But ALI BABA being an MC at their event is the reason our economy is this bad. Even when ALI BABA tells them more truth than some of your pastors, that pray for them to succeed. Some people’s stupidity is on 3D. But blame it on their OS. Some Operating systems can’t work with all apps”

We Will Be Stoned To Death If We Present Buhari, APC Group

An All Progressives Congress group which goes under the banner of Southern Mandate of Nigeria (SMN), sai Nigerians will stone them at campaign grounds, if President Muhammadu Buhari is presented as their presidential candidate.
National Coordinator of the group, Comrade Francis Ikonomwan, in a statement made available to journalists in Benin, Edo State, described the call b members of Buhari Support Group on President Mohammadu Buhari to contes the 2019 election, as political sycophancy.

He described members of the Buhari Support Group as a “bunch of people who do not mean well for our Party, AP and Nigerians at large, but rather, they represent their selfish interest.”

Ikonomwan who noted that President Buhari has failed to deliver on his campaign promises and so Nigerians can no longer entrust him with the leadership of the country, urged him to ignore such calls, adding that it is not i the interest of the nation.
“We are saddened that these people are not sensitive to the plight of Nigerians. The fact remains that Nigerians are not happy with President Muhammadu Buhari and our party, the APC.

“President Muhammadu Buhari has not been able to deliver on his campaign promises. What has this administration to campaign with in every sector of the economy or is it the fight against corruption that has been swept under the carpet?

“Even the political leaders and the people who fought for his emergence a President today have been abandoned and are all lamenting today.
“There is a total disconnect between the people and the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration. Poverty and Hunger is now the order of the day in Nigeria as we speak. It is getting obvious by the day that Nigerians can no longer trust President Muhammadu Buhari with the leadership of this country.

“If APC fields Muhammadu Buhari as its presidential candidate in 2019, we are afraid that Nigerians may stone us at campaign grounds. We may just end up giving the opposition party the presidency in 2019 on a platter of gold.
“However, we wish to call on President Muhammadu Buhari to ignore such call as it is not in the interest of Nigerians.

President Muhammadu Buhari’s priority now should be how to use the remainin part of his administration to deliver on our campaign promises and do the needful by not indicating interest to contest in 2019,” the statement said.
