Christie Nonyelum Akumabor .just looking at the list of those given national awards even without the attendant recent massacre shows that their government certainly DOES NOT reflect the feelings, aspirations or mood of the country. Imagine honoring Buhari, IBB, Abacha; known coup plotters, human rights abusers and one a convicted theif alongside Gani, Fela, Prof Olukoye Ransome-Kuti, Prof Ambrose Alli, Achebe and Soyinka. Then including the Queen, Lord Lugard and his then girlfriend on this list whilst names like Awolowo, Zik and Mary Slessor were conspicuously absent. You continually urge Nigerians to support the country/government whilst it is PATENTLY OBVIOUS that Nigerians love their country, otherwise we wouldn't spend so much time and energy discussing it.However most Nigerians have total disregard for our government and it's officials because they offer us nothing, not even security and simply pillage our resources for their own use. Imagine some of the names the younger generation of Nigerians com ...
On 27 December, the 12-kilometre route starting from the muster point of the Millennium Park in Calabar through Mary Slessor – Marian Road – Efio Ette Junction – MCC Road to the U. J. Esuene Stadium was a beehive of activities. The event was the adult carnival of 2013 Calabar Carnival. And for almost 18 hours, there was no stopping the thousands of fun seekers on this corridor. Hundreds of thousands of people engaged in one activity or the other – dancing and singing – with other people watching, buying and selling. As the city of Calabar came to a standstill with offices and business premise under lock and key; hot hues of colour, exotic and stage-like costumes, sequins, music and choreography unseen in this part of the world took over. Welcome to what is reputed to be Africa’s biggest street party. The adult carnival, however, was just a climax of the one-month event for residents and tourists every year-end. This year’s event like the previous ones featured cultural and musical shows, fre ...

MIND YOUR TIMES WITH YOUR MIND: Don't be caught in the agony of wasted youth! No matter how young you are time will guaranty your old age. No matter how old you are youthfulness resides in your mental acumen. The rewards of age-long rest is premised in diligent youthfulness. Jeremiah cautioned the lamentation of ignoring the prestige of youthful diligence. Lamentations 3:27. Turn your high heels to willfulness to contribute, convert your swaggs to legendary contribution. Just think up something you will never be forgotten for, Isaac Newton was not an alien neither was Peter Drucker a ghost, Mary Slessor was not hanging low waist when she recorded history Neither was Bill gates with a brutish haircut when he built Microsoft in his mind. Something happens when you look at the mirror, a thought about how you look meaning how you look may infer how you think. Lets not make fashion a mental drab. single-hood and marriage are metamorphosis of mental adjustments. If you are alive you are young, a man published h ...

Mary slessor worn the fight for the killing of twins in calabar. But today we now know it was not a total fight in Nigeria. Last Sunday I read on one Nigerian news paper that around Abuja of all places is still existing up to about ten communities named for this babaric concept. These communities needs our prayers to get saved and education and health service to sensitize them. Today's Mary slessor is a man. A missionary.
Today we remember Mary Slessor, born in Scotland in 1848 and missionary in West Africa until her death in 1915

UPDATE: Police rushed to Mary Slessor Square earlier this morning to deal with an alleged stand-off.
Mary Slessor not only played a role in setting up the Hope Waddell Institution, but mastered Efik, had a great sense of humour, and was just 28 when she first arrived Calabar.
Wish words can express how grateful I am. I really thank you for realizing how important 16th January is to us (DOUBLE V) and for celebrating us as well. I thank you also for the wishes via sms, bbm, fbk, calls etc. I really thank GOD for HIS grace which has kept us. "I STILL DEY WONDER, IF NOT FOR MARY SLESSOR, WHERE DOUBLE V FOR DEY" LOL... Anyways, I thank GOD for her. I thank GOD for the wonderful family and friends I have. My prayer is that GOD will bless you and HIS favour will never cease in your life. You will live to witness your Birthdays also. AMEN!!!

UPDATE: Why did Jonathan sign the *** law? In 2013, an iconic picture of two ladies kissing before anti *** marriage protesters in Marseille, France, went viral. That act of defiance before an assembly of mostly old ladies was to demonstrate an inviolable right to private life and choice. It was largely the fear of this sort of freedom that spurred the Nigerian Senate to embark on pushing a bill to criminalise activities relating to homosexuality with draconian measures. The climax of the saga occurred on Monday, January 13 when the Special Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, announced that the President had signed the bill into law. It was a well-calculated move from a politician who wants to win popular support for 2015 elections, and he chose a good time to espouse conservative values. Just the previous week, his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, and the All Progressives Congress engaged in the usual catfight, this time over religion. Having whipped up so ...

Today in Missions History: January 15, 1915 -- Mary Slessor (born: 1848), Scottish missionary to West Africa, died. Converted as a teen-ager in the Presbyterian church, Mary sailed to Nigeria in 1876 where she worked continuously with tribal peoples for forty years. Mary Slessor's uncanny insight into the African mind helped her as she worked to eliminate witchcraft, drunkenness, twin-killing and other cruel customs among the Ibo people.

Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? For riches certainly make themselves: They fly away as an eagle toward heaven. Proverbs 23: 5 It is a well known fact that the quest for money is a great question that no man can answer except God. Money is so mysterious, cryptic, and spiritual. So it is certain: No mortal beings can do without it. However, as the searches for wealth and material possessions continue to dominate the mind of both the high and mighty of each generation, it is paramount for believers and more importantly the custodians of truth to present a unique approach since the bible says we are the light of the world. In contrast to what is required and expected from Christians, many believers have decided to join the rat race by embracing desperation at the detriment of their salvation to acquire wealth by all means. Some thought they could arm themselves with scriptures on prosperity to calm their conscience. The most disheartening aspect of this trend is the ungodly example demonstrat ...

Mary Slessor died and went to Heaven. St. Peter was giving her a tour of Heaven when she noticed that there were dozens of clocks on the wall. Each clock displayed a different time of day. When she asked St. Peter about the clocks, he replied, ''We have a clock for each person on earth and every time they tell a lie the hands move. The clock ticks off one second each time a lie is told.'' Special attention was given to two clocks. The clock belonging to Mother Teresa has never moved, indicating that she never told a lie. The clock for Nnamdi Azikiwe has only moved twice. He only told two lies in his life. Hillary asked ''Where is 0basanjo's clock?'' St. Peter replied, ''Jesus has it in his office... he's using it as a ceiling fan.'''

DEVELOPING THE CULTURAL OF TOURISM IN Akwa Ibom State By Mathias Essien The world tourism organization define tourist as people “traveling to and staying in place outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure, business and other purposes Tourism has become a popular global leisure activity. After slowly recovering from the contraction resulting from the late 2000s recession where tourism suffered a strong slowdown from the second half of 2008 through the end of 2009 and the outbreak of HINI influenza virus, international tourism arrivals surpassed the milestone 1 billion tourist globally for the first time in history in 2012. Tourism is important and is some cases, vital for many countries. It was recognized in the manila declaration on world tourism of 1980 as “an activity essential to the life of nations because of its direct effects on the social, cultural, educational and economic sectors of national societies and on their international relations”.

The Tiv came into contact with European culture during the colonial period. During November 1907 to spring 1908, an expedition of the Southern Nigeria Regiment led by Lieutenant-Colonel Hugh Trenchard's came into contact with the Tiv. Trenchard brought gifts for the tribal chiefs. Subsequently, roads were built and trade links established between Europeans and the Tiv.[3] But before construction of roads began a missionary named Mary Slessor went throughout the region seeing to the people's needs. The geographical position of the Tiv, according to Laura and Paul Bohannan (1969: 9) and Rubingh (1969: 58), is between 6° 30' and 8° 10' north latitude and 8° and 10° east longitude. The Tiv shares borders with the Chamba and Jukun of Taraba State in the northeast; with the Igede (Benue), Iyala, Gakem and Obudu of Cross River State in the southeast; and the Idoma of Benue State to the south. There is also an international boundary between the Tiv and the Republic of Cameroon at a southeastern angle of the e ...

CAN THE TRUTH SET US FREE? Because many actions are taken as a result of ignorance and superstition, every generation has men that are bound because they do not know the truth. For example. Until the coming of mary Slessor, people in calabar saw twins as evil. This practice wasonly halted when she showed ther the truth surrounding the coming of twins and subsequently raised them to become normal human beings

I saw post in the room where a brother so complained indirectly of leadership. I wanted to comment on his post, but i thought i should say it in alfresco; as someone will, in someway, learn a fact. In a sense, he was correct when he said there's a bad leadership. But have we all sat down to think it and ask ourselves that; aside the corrupt SYSTEM of leadership, what is true nature of the person operating in that corrupt system? What am trying to point out is that corruption and dishonesty to human is not just of top-profile officials/leaders; corruption lies in each and every one of us. Believe or argue it; that's a fact we all must come to terms with. So what is the way forward? Simple! Be sincere and sacrificing. Every reformation comes with a big sacrifice. That sacrifice could be so intense to the extent of a life or lives. But not all reformation take a life-sacrifice. You can be a leader, see all the money and use it to do some good and 'monumental'; something that would benefit multitude of genera ...

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR JESUS? “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith...” 2 Timothy 4: 7 Mary Slessor, was an unmarried Scottish young lady sponsored as a pioneer missionary to Nigeria by Scotland Presbyterian Mission. She worked tirelessly among Efik people in the present day Cross River State of Nigeria. Although, a Scot, she deeply endeared herself to the people of Calabar province by learning and speaking Efik language. There she effectively fought against the infamous killing of twins at infancy. Her faith in God helped her to succeed in her missionary venture in spite of demoralizing challenges. She sacrificed her Scottish comfort zone and people. Dear Christian boy and girl, what would you be remembered for? Our text today admonishes you to have devotion towards Christ in God. Like Mary Slessor, you should surrender your life to God and serve Him loyally. You may or may not decide to work fully as a missionary, but there are many boys and girls around you w ...

DAY  19 Friday, May 10, 2013   I Corinthians 13: 1-3 “If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.  If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.”   Mary Slessor was a Scottish missionary who devoted her life to serving others. She followed the Lord’s calling and ventured to Okoyong, an African village where a dangerous pagan people lived. The people were feared throughout their country, but Mary’s desire to bring the people to the Lord outweighed her apprehension. She began by simply showing love to those who were in need of it. She talked with the sick, lonely, and any who needed love. Slowly, the people began to entrust Mary with more and more. She became a part of their tribe, and eventually led their ...
When I remeber the past, I begin to shade tears. I can not hold myself when I start thinking about the evils men displayed centuries ago. My feelings today made me to say a little about what I felt, and how good the works she did has eventually appreciated. My readiness to question my parents about this issue, was not a burden. I am convinced with some answer to my question. Plodding with my idea, I just concluded that Mary Slessor have a cordial relationship with twins. Who can even trace her history? Who knows if she is a twin? I believe with this saying, seeing is believing. Who will tell us more about this great woman? Internet descriptions can only say what they heard from people, how sure are we, that all what they vomit, is really what happened. Mary Mitchell Slessor was a Scottish missionary to Nigeria to Nigeria. Her wonderful idea on how to reform, transform and inform people, especially women lures me. She have a great and strong faith in God who send her to this great mission that she will do ...
BIZARRE: 40 FCT towns still kill twins Our Reporter March 27, 2013 6 Comments » By JULIANA TAIWO-OBALONYE It is 98 years ago that Mary Slessor, the Scottish missionary to Nigeria, died. She was reputed to have led crusades that stopped some societies from killing twin babies at birth. Such births were taboo and not tolerated. While her history remains alive, as her remains were interred in Nigeria, it seems some communities in Nigeria, even today, are out to rubbish and undo what Slessor did. It might shock you to hear that there is still a community that still sees twins or multiple birth as abomination. But it is more confounding to find that the communities are in the nation’s Federal Capital Territory (FCT). How awful that even within the world’s newest city, with all the trappings of modernity, the preponderance of religions and inclinations that abhor killing of human beings, twin kids are still sacrificed to the gods of tradition that don’t want them alive like the biblical story of the noti ...
Quiet here the day, International Wummin's Day. Famous Scottish wummin. Name some and why they're famous. I'll start. Mary Slessor - Star of Clydesdale Bank tenners, she was a missionary and, more importantly in my view, a champion of wummins' rights.
I remember that one very wise person passed a comment on the cost of education ...i think it was chief Obafemi Awolowo ..he said if education is costly try ignorance!! look at the sad tragedy of those health workers trying to vaccinate against polio and meet with death in the hands of this ignorant folks while I am not particularly excited about tribal/regional sentiments I think it is time that 'leaders' if there are any in the true sense of it call their subjects to order in the north!! this is a real disgrace and a thing of shame that in 2013 the north is still 'needing a Mary Slessor to come and stop the killing of twins' In my opinion rather than trying to lead the country which of course every citizen irrespective of what part of nigeria they come from can aspire to do I think it will be better if they remember that charity begins from home! I hope i will not have to write about another tragedy in the North of Nigeria especially relating to things that concern education and health
Twins in nigeria should create a shrine or something for mary slessor. Amean she saved their ***

Today hotels and chalets will be fully booked, immorality will be at its peak, and Satan will smile greatly, heaven will be embarrassed and ashamed, is that love? what is love? Christ Jesus crucified, beaten, spat upon,humiliated and ridiculed for the same people who perpetuated this very act, that is love and the greatest there is. The scripture says "Greater love had no man than this, that a man laid down his life for his friends" St Valentine didn't do anything different from what Mother Theresa, Mary Slessor and the so many who sacrificed their time and resources in humanitarian work. The bible does not tell us anything about valentine, To the christian everyday is an opportunity to express love, Valentine has been misunderstood by so many and is now an avenue people use to express sexual lust and carnality. if u are truly a believer then the greatest gift you can offer anyone you claim to love today is to introduce him/her to the one whose show of love gave you and I easy access to salvation.None oth ...

MISSIONARIES: THEIR LIVES AND THEIR MESSAGE A Real Burden For Lost Men If "God so loved the (John 3:16), should not believers share a love and concern for the world? The great missionaries of the past have been those men and women who have shared God’s heart of concern for lost men. As examples of this, let us consider William Carey and Mary Slessor. 1) William Carey William Carey, the great missionary to India who is remembered as the father of the modern missionary movement did a lot that we can learn from. When Carey lived in England he was a shoemaker. Carey was very interested in the journeys of the famous English navigator and explorer, Captain James Cook. Carey wanted to learn all that he could about the world and the needy people who lived in the world. On the walls of his humble shoemaker’s shop he hung hand-drawn maps of the world on which he had noted the population, climate, vegetation, animals and religions of the different countries. Out of pieces of leather, he had constructed a globe, ...

Home The Project People Story Indexes Resources Institutions For Writers Contact Africa Countries Slessor, Mary 1848 to 1915 Presbyterian Nigeria The Legacy of Mary Slessor Sixty-six-year-old Mary Mitchell Slessor lay dying in the village of Use Ikot Oku, Nigeria. Feverish, weak, and going in and out of consciousness, she prayed, "O Abasi, sana mi yak" (O God, let me go). Her prayer was granted just before dawn on January 13, 1915. The woman known as eka kpukpru owo (everybody's mother) had lived nearly forty years in Nigeria, but her death was noted around the world, and her influence lives on today. How did Mary Slessor, a petite redhead from the slums of Dundee, Scotland, become a role model for others, even today? How did she come to wield such influence in the land known to her compatriots as the white man's grave? How did she fit into the British Empire's plan to "civilize" Nigeria? A study of Slessor's life reveals certain factors leading to a missionary fervor, combined with a large measure of dow ...
Daily Trust. The costume of Brazilian women participants at the last Calabar Carnival, which reveals more than it covers, has generated controversy. Religious leaders in the state are asking whether the state was better off spiritually one month after the carnival. Many did not believe their eyes, but truly amongst the celebrants and cultural troupes from within and outside Nigeria who took part in the just concluded Calabar Carnival, the Brazilian women were virtually naked during the carnival. Most of them marched and danced round the major routes of Calabar seductively, from the popular Millennium Park (the starting point of the Carnival) through such roads like Mary Slessor, Marian Roads and IBB Way into the UJ Esuene stadium. It was not only the 26-member Brazilian team called Vai Vai Samba Band that thrilled the crowd. Other Nigerian women participants that got wind of the Brazilian pattern of dressing quickly adorned themselves with such see- through panties so as to catch attention. Dancing step-b ...

'Mary Slessor - the white queen of Okoyong': But first there must be a church. The chief and free men and women helped, and by and by there rose a long roomy shed, complete, except for a door and windows. What a day it was when it was set apart and used for the worship of God--the first church in wild Okoyong! Ma told the people that they could not come to God's house except with clean bodies and clean hearts. Few of them had clean clothes, or clothes at all, and the children never wore any. But Ma had been receiving boxes from Sunday Schools and work-parties in Scotland, and out of these she dressed the women and little ones in pinafores of all colours. How proud and happy they were! But the excitement died into quietness and reverence when they went inside the building, and an awe fell upon them as Ma explained what a church meant, and that God was in their midst. The chiefs rose and said that they would respect the building, that no weapon of war would ever be brought into it, and that all their quarre ...

Roman Catholicism in Nigeria The majority of Christians are found in the South East and South-South and Middle-belt region. An increasing number of mission stations and mission bookstores, along with churches serving southern enclaves and northern Christians in the northern cities and larger towns, are found in the Muslim north. Christianity in Yoruba area traditionally has been Protestant and Anglican, whereas Igboland has always been the area of greatest activity by the Roman Catholic Church. Other denominations abounded as well. Presbyterians arrived in the late 17th century in the Ibibio, Annang and Efik land and the Niger Delta area and had missions in the middle belt as well. The works of the Presbyterian Church in Calabar from Scotland by missionaries like Rev Hope M. Waddell, who arrived in Calabar 10 April 1846, in the 19th century and that of Mary Slessor of Calabar being examples. Small missionary movements were allowed to start up, generally in the 1920s, after the middle belt was considered p ...
They taught us that Mungo Park discovered River Niger, how can Mungo Park discover our very own river Niger that we have been living with for millennia? They taught us that Mary Slessor stopped the killing of twins, they forgot to tell us how many people were killed by the church for been unbelievers, witches and heretics. They taught us that our leaders were brutes; they forgot to teach us about the Belgium brute, king Leopold who massacred thousands and stole untold resources from the Congo. They told us that most African rulers were killers, and African practiced human sacrifices, they refuse to tell you how Africans were very welcoming, and trusting and how they misused our kindness and generosity They forget to teach us how they confiscated our lands, killed and enslaved our people They will tell you how crude, primitive, and barbaric our culture were, but they will not tell you how they stole, robbed and pillaged those same cultural artifacts which are displayed in their museums today. They will te ...
Mary Slessor: White Mother of West Africa Among those inspired by the life and death of David Livingstone was Mary Slessor (1848 – 1915), who ventured alone into Calabar, a remote area of present-day Nigeria. She was one of the thousands of women who flooded into foreign missions in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Scottish Presbyterians sponsored her even as they had sponsored her hero David Livingstone. Indeed, by the time she ventured into Africa in the mid – 1870s, denominational mission boards were beginning to open the doors to women. Like Livingstone, Mary Slessor had grown up in poverty and had worked long hours in textile mills as a child. Unlike the Presbyterian missionary wives serving in Calabar, she lacked sophistication, and in her leisure time she preferred climbing trees to attending afternoon tea parties. Her initial assignment was to teach in a school at Duketown, but dissatisfied with the social niceties and ample lifestyle of the other missionaries, she convinced ...
Doing some casual reading on some of the early church pioneers! The likes of Billy Graham, John Wesley, Mary Slessor, Mother Teresa, John Calvin etc.These guys didnt just plant churches, or feed the poor.they gave up EVERYTHING, and started Christian MOVEMENTS that would change the WORLD. God, I pray that you give me the courage to 'STEP OUT IN FAITH' just as they did in serving you!
