A handkerchief revolution is ongoing in that church; there is an increasing number of miracles performed [...]

OAU: A test for Yemi Ogunbiyi’s humility, respect-for-all model

Whoever chose Dr. Yemi Ogunbiyi to head the governing council of troubled Obafemi Awolowo University knows him quite well. The cap fits perfectly, only that for now, it appears to be a thorny one for which he has to draw heavily on his sweet personality built on humility and respect for all, and his vast experience and skills.

DIARY: RCCG’s congress of signs and wonders

“Praise the Lord….,” a dark, stocky woman in a black flowery dress and a black beret shouted. The shout was so shrilling it pierced the eardrum, and so loud and prolonged that it echoed around the massive three-kilometre-by-three-kilometre auditorium, called the “Arena”. It was on the Friday night of the 19th Holy Ghost Congress of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, [...]

Niger Delta attacks: The search for motives

The rash of bomb attacks in the Niger Delta is a living book in want of a suitable title because the issues are unclear.

Women dressed in red are more sexually attractive to men as the colour transmits “powerful” messages about how interested they might be, scientists have found. They call it the red dress effect.
