‘Most Nigerian pastors lack discipline’ – CAN president laments.

Published

on

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has decried the rampant moral, especially financial, corruption that has bedevilled the church in the country.

The president of CAN, Samsom Ayokunle, gave his voice against the trend among Christain clerics whom he identified as the major perpetrators of these crimes, The Nation reports. Ayokunle noted that things have gotten so bad that even pastors assault the female members and not just that, according to him, many religious leaders in the faith lack integrity when it comes to money. The CAN boss lamented that due to the lack of discipline on the part of these so-called spiritual guardians, the name of Jesus Christ is blasphemed by unbelievers in the country. He cried out: “The name of the Lord is being maligned in our society today because of the way Christians are behaving. Obscene dressing and all forms of impurities are happening in our midst.

“Some Christians cannot be trusted for any noble assignment. There appears to be no difference between them and the unbelievers. Money, in particular, has become the god of some (if not many) Christians, including Church leaders! What a shame to the Church!” Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of Christ Embassy had condemned pastors that refused to open their churches after the Lagos state government gave the approval for religious centers to reopen.

The clergyman did not mention names but some of the pastors that have refused to reopen their auditoriums for worship include Pastor Tunde Bakare, Prophet TB Joshua and Pastor Sam Adeyemi.

Bruno Fernandes’s penalty hands United a first home win in a match of two penalties

Published

on

By

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer concedes his side were ‘lucky’ that West Brom had a penalty decision overturned in their 1-0 win at Old Trafford.

 

After a goalless first 45 minutes, Slaven Bilic’s side were awarded a spot-kick early in the second half after referee David Coote ruled that Bruno Fernandes had fouled Conor Gallagher in the box.

 

VAR however intervened with the decision eventually changed after Coote reviewed the incident on the sideline. Replays suggested Fernandes did make some contact with the ball before the man.

 

The Red Devils made the most of the call and were themselves awarded a penalty 10 minutes later which Fernandes tucked away at the second time of asking after his first attempt was saved only for goalkeeper Sam Johnstone to be caught coming of his line.

 

Solskjaer, referencing Aston Villa’s similarly overturned last-minute spot-kick in their 2-1 home defeat to Brighton earlier on Saturday, told BT Sport he thought both penalties should have been awarded.

 

He said: “I looked at the penalty this afternoon at Villa-Brighton, and there’s contact on the ball and the man. In my head, it might be a penalty, and there as well.

 

With this victory, United see themselves in the top half of the table for the first time this seasin with 13 points from 9 games at 8th position.

 

While for West Brom, they remain in the bottom three with only 3 points.

 

United will host Istanbul Basaksehir midweek, while also to play away to Southampton on Sunday.
