CAN kicks as El-Rufai moves to demolish 110-year-old church in Kaduna

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Kaduna State Chapter has frowned at a purported 7-day quit notice, allegedly issued by the Kaduna State Urban Property Development Agency (KASUPDA) to a church, which has spent 110 years at its location.

Kaduna Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria, Reverend John Hayab, expressed this when he received General Overseer of the Evangelical Bible Outreach Ministry, Jos and the Convener For the Movement of Initiative of a Brighter and Better Nigeria, Prophet Isa elBuba, in Kaduna on Thursday.

Hayab said that CAN on receiving the information, contacted the person who issued the letter but was told that he was acting on orders from above.

“Just yesterday, a staff of KASUPDA in Zaria has given a church, which has been there for 110 years 7 days demolition notice.

“The man who wrote it claimed it was from the governor. We will just ask the governor if he gave the directives, which we doubt emanated from him,” he said.

Hayab described the letter as one capable of creating a crisis and appealed to those in authority to bear in mind the sensitive nature of religion.

He said that as a father, he would not see something affecting his children and keep quiet, out of being politically correct as that would amount to hypocrisy.

Speaking earlier, Prophet el-Buba commended the Kaduna CAN chairman for his defence of the truth.

“We have seen the level of injustice playing out in our country. We are on this nationwide tour to see to the emancipation and freedom of our people.

“Religion is no more serving the purpose God meant it to serve. It is expected that we treat everybody fairly in spite of religious differences,” he said

He explained that in his father’s house, everyone treated fairly in spite of having Sheikhs and pastors in the same family.

“Group of elites holding the masses hostage. There is a massive number of people below the pyramid, about 97 per cent only three per cent are manipulating the majority,” he submitted.

De Gea hailed by Henderson but warns him for No. 1 spot battle

Dean Henderson has cautioned David de Gea he is aiming for his Manchester United place. The 23-year-old goalkeeper will retreat to Old Trafford after an exceptional loan spell at Sheffield United, determined to take the 1st spot off the Spaniard.

Academy alumnus Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract last month among connections to Chelsea. Thus, making it obvious he sees himself at Old Trafford for the long term.

“I’ll be moving back in the first day of pre-season and sweating my b******s off to get in that starting line-up because it’s something I’ve constantly required and I’m so close now. I have tremendous respect for David. He has been a magnificent goalkeeper for many years.

He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.

Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last …

Mourinho looking to steal Man United transfer with phone call

Jose Mourinho has made some good progress with Tottenham Hotspur. The club was struggling when Mauricio Pochetino left mid-season. Jose has his ways of doing things and many times his way might not be ideal.

But as Jose has always said, the most important thing is to get in the result. And since Mourinho has joined only Manchester City, Liverpool, and Manchester United, have earned more points than Tottenham.

Tottenham was at the 14th spot in the Premier League. Jose took them to sixth place and got them back in Europe. However, the expectations will be even higher for the next season. Spurs will want to push into the top four and compete for a Champions League place.

However to accomplish that goal Jose will need to add some players. Tottenham have already completed 3 signings. The club signed Joe Hart from Burnley on a free transfer.

Matt Doherty came in from Wolverhampton for £15 million and Pierre-Emile Hoijberg came in from Southampton for the same amount. But Jose Mourinho wants mo…
