News-Update: Former Militants Graduate As Aircraft Engineers

The Presidential Amnesty Office on Friday said 22 beneficiaries of its foreign education programme had graduated as Aircraft Maintenance Engineers and had returned to the country.

The Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta and the Coordinator of Presidential Amnesty Programme, Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

He said the beneficiaries were trained at the Royal Jordanian Air Academy and were equipped with EASA licence on return, adding that without the licence, they would not be useful in the aviation industry.

He said that the licence made the beneficiaries certified aircraft maintenance professionals needed in modern airline operation.

"Worldwide aircraft maintenance business is enormous, and expanding with the passage of time.

"Approximately 500, 000 passenger and cargo aircrafts are currently in service worldwide.

"Moreover, about four million smaller private aircrafts are being used for business or pleasure. Thus, aviation is an ever-expanding field with modernization of equipment on new aircraft.

"Therefore, the requirements of aircraft engineers and aircraft mechanics to work on a permanent basis as an employee of an airline will always rise with ever increasing expansion of aviation industry," Boroh said.

He explained that an aircraft maintenance engineer was mostly responsible for the control, maintenance and repair of aircraft instrumentation and related aircraft equipment.

According to him, the beneficiaries have also learnt how to set engine controls and test them for correct functioning.

"They play a major role being maintenance personnel to keep the aircrafts airworthy at all times.

"The maintenance of modern sophisticated aircrafts calls for high degree of technical knowledge, competence, proficiency, dexterity and integrity on part of the concerned personnel.

"They work on any and every mechanical aspect of the craft, including airframes, hydraulics and pneumatics, engines and fuel systems and control and communications systems."

The presidential aide said that the success of the amnesty programme has swelled the ranks of thousands of armed youths seeking to lay down their arms and lead normal lives.

He commended the Federal Government for funding the programme, adding that continued funding for the project was further proof of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration’s commitment to the full reintegration of amnesty beneficiaries into the society.

He, however, disclosed that some of the persons that graduated from the Jordanain academy returned without the EASA licence, but said that efforts were on to obtain the licence for them.

Italian President Sergio Mattarella, Senate President Pietro Grasso, Lower Chamber President Laura Boldrini and Italian Premier Matteo Renzi also attended the funeral service.

Dozens of flower-covered caskets were lined up in a gymnasium as people bid farewell to loved ones, kneeling, crying inconsolably and placing their hands on the caskets. Hundreds more stood silently outside, others hugged each other as Giovanni D'Ercole, the Bishop of Ascoli, implored them not to lose faith.

MANCHESTER UNITED COACH, JOSE MOURINHO PRAISE HIS YOUNG TALENT RASHFORD

man utd

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was full of praise for teenage sensation Marcus Rashford after he came on to score a late winner against Hull City.

Mourinho sent Rashford on with 20 minutes to play with United trying to find a winner at the KCOM Stadium.

In the 92nd minute he lost his marker in the penalty box and converted Wayne Rooney's cross to secure all three points for the visitors.

Mourinho was quick to congratulate his match-winner as he came into the dressing room at full-time. “I gave him a big smile and a big hug. I think he is marvellous and he is working very well.”

It's now three wins from three Premier League games for United as they maintained their 100% record. It didn't always look like they were going to get the win as Hull City defended resolutely.

The home side sat back and challenged United to try and break them down. For almost 94 minutes the away side couldn't find a way through, until Rashford came on to steal the headlines.

The England international said he'd been waiting to take his chance.

"First away game for me this season and happy to get the three points and goal," he said. "The fans came onto the pitch to celebrate and that is part of football.

"I am getting on in training and waiting for moments like this. It is being amazing being around players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic every day, I am learning a lot from them."

Rashford was the hero, but Mourinho was pleased with the way the whole team kept plugging away. “Especially in the second half we were so intense in our attacking wave," he said

THE NECESSITY OF TESTIMONIES AND THANKSGIVING - DR. PAUL ENENCHE

DAILY DEVOTIONAL WRITTEN BY DR. PAUL ENENCHE

SEED OF DESTINY DEVOTIONAL

Sunday, 28 August 2016

TOPIC: THE NECESSITY OF TESTIMONIES AND THANKSGIVING

SCRIPTURE: And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole. – Luke 17:17-19.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Testimonies are the proofs of our gratitude to God.

When our Lord Jesus was on earth, He healed many people that were afflicted with various kinds of sicknesses and diseases. There was a time ten lepers cried unto Him for healing (Luke 17:12-19). He was merciful unto them and healed them but only one of them returned to give thanks to God.

In our society today, just like the remaining nine lepers that failed to return the glory to God, many people know how to pray, fast and cry unto God because of a particular challenge of life, but forget to glorify God when their problem is solved.

God delights in testimonies and thanksgiving; He wants us to bless His Name when He does something for us.

What then are the necessities of testimonies and thanksgiving?

1. Testimonies are proofs of gratitude to God.
When we give testimonies of God’s act of goodness publicly and give Him thanks for His works, it shows that we are grateful to God.

2.Testimonies are necessary because they prove the faithfulness and reliability of the Almighty God. Thanksgiving confirms that God is reliable. So, when you withhold testimonies, you are withholding glory from God.

Remember this: Testimonies are the proofs of our gratitude to God.

ASSIGNMENT(S):
1. Make up your mind to give God praise for every kind of mercy He has shown to you.
2. Publicly testify of God’s acts of kindness and goodness in the assembly of the saints.

PRAYER: O LORD, deliver me from a life of ingratitude. Give me the grace to continually praise Your Name, in Jesus’ Name.

ABIDE IN JESUS - KENNETH COPELAND

DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY COPELAND

FAITH TO FAITH DEVOTIONAL

Sunday, 28 August 2016

TOPIC: ABIDE IN JESUS

KEY VERSE: If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered. - John 15:6

If I were to ask you to make a list of a hundred things you need to do to please the Lord today, you could do it, couldn’t you? In fact, you probably have so many spiritual “dos” and “don’ts” cluttering up your mind that you’d hardly know where to start.

But you can relax. I’m not going to suggest you make a list of them. Instead, I’m going to help you simplify things by giving you only one: Abide in Jesus.

The one thing you’re truly responsible for is your union with Him. If you keep your union and fellowship with Him intact, everything else will be taken care of.

“But Gloria, I’m facing some big problems right now. My life’s turned upside down. I’m so rushed I don’t know whether I’m coming or going. I don’t have time to fellowship with the Lord today.”

That’s when you need to do it the most! You need to maintain your union with the Lord particularly when the storms of life come. I know that’s often not easy to do. Whether the storm is a sickness in your body or financial problems or family strife, the temptation will be to settle your attention and your mind on that problem. You won’t even want to think about anything else.

That’s what the devil planned on. That’s the reason he sent that storm in the first place. To distract you from fellowshiping with God. To draw your attention away from your union with Him.

Don’t fall into the devil’s trap. Instead, keep your thoughts and affections trained on the Lord. As you do that, the force of faith will begin to flow out of you. And that flow will repel every form of darkness. It will bring you in triumph through every storm.

Fellowship with Jesus today.

EVEN THE ENEMIES KNOW - PASTOR W.F. KUMUYI

TOPIC: EVEN THE ENEMIES KNOW

Bible Text: 2 Samuel 3:1-11

Key Verse: "So do God to Abner, and more also, except, as the LORD hath sworn to David, even so I do to him;To translate the kingdom from the house of Saul, and to set up the throne of David over Israel and over Judah, from Dan even to Beersheba" (2 Samuel 3:9,10).

If only we sometimes knew what is happening in the camp of the enemies concerning us, we will be less agitated and troubled. We will not be disturbed over what we may consider as their threat on our lives and God's plans and purposes for us.

The enemies know full well what God has purposed concerning us and they equally know that they do not have the power to thwart or stop the hand of God on our lives. But most times, they take advantage of the ignorance of most Christians and use the tactics of fear and doubt to keep believers from getting to enjoy God's provisions. Abner knew very well that the throne belonged to David, based on the prophetic declaration and anointing on David. He however, for selfish reasons, had been backing Ishboshet, taking advantage of his weakness to perpetuate himself. But as God would have it, confusion ensued between them and Abner finally decided to get the kingdom over to David as God has promised him.

We need to take note of the patience of David as regards taking over the entire kingdom following the death of Saul. Though he knew the entire kingdom was his based on God's promises to him, yet he was patient, keeping faith with God's timing and faithfulness. And eventually, the enemies tired themselves out and handed the kingdom over to David. When you know what God has spoken concerning you, you will not be agitated over the wiles and the antics of the enemies.

They may take the oath on their lives to stop you from reaching God's goal, but will almost immediately tire themselves out.

Thought for the day: Satan has no power to stop the work of God in a saint's life.

UNUSUAL MESSENGERS - PASTOR E.A. ADEBOYE

TOPIC: UNUSUAL MESSENGERS

Memorise: And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there. – 1 Kings 17:4

Read: 1 Kings 17:1-5 (KJV)

1 And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.

2 And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying,

3 Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.

4 And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there.

5 So he went and did according unto the word of the LORD: for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.

Bible in One Year: Jeremiah 1:1-3:5, Psalms 44:1-8

MESSAGE:
Messengers are stewards often sent to speak, act, or deliver a message on behalf of their master. In addition to the angelic beings that God normally sends as messengers to speak, deliver messages, or carry our specific assignments, He also uses humans and other living or non-living beings as messengers. The purpose of God’s legitimate messengers is always to inform, enable, protect, empower, and guide the people of God. But they are sent occasionally to punish. I pray that you will never do anything to provoke divine judgment in Jesus’ name. The most prominent among God’s messengers are Prophets, humans and angelic beings. However, unusual messengers are sometimes deployed by God to carry out special assignments. 1 Kings 17:4-6 says,

“4 And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there. 5 So he went and did according unto the word of the LORD: for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan. 6 And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.”

In the above passage, the most unusual messengers - ravens were the stewards sent to provide food for Elijah in the wilderness. Ravens are large heavily built carnivorous birds of the corvine family. God used a great fish, gourd plant, worm and a vehement east wind as unusual messengers to teach Jonah the lesson of his life in Jonah 4:6-8. He used another unusual messenger to play an important role in the story of Balaam in Numbers 22:19-35. Numbers 22:27-28 says;

“27…. and Balaam’s anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with a staff. 28 And the Lord opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?”

The use of supernatural beings are natural elements as God’s messengers therefore underscores God as the Lord of Hosts, with the special ability to make all things work in favour of His beloved children. Therefore, give your life to Jesus today, and become one of God’s beloved. Then you can be sure that all things will begin to work together for your good according to the Word of God in Romans 8:28.

Prayer Point: Father, please command all things to work together for my good and the fulfilment of my destiny in the name of Jesus.

President Buhari is not sincere, says Ijaw Youth Leader

Niger Delta Crisis

- There is a heavy presence of military, mobilising into the Niger Delta through Sapele

- We don’t have a Sambisa forest where militants are stationed and waiting for the government like in the North. 

- This battle is more of an intelligence-civil strategy instead of an invasion that is old-fashioned.

- The unfortunate fact is whether government is sincere in this whole business

The President of the Ijaw Youth Council Worldwide, Mr. Udengs Eradiri, has demanded suspension of the military operation in the spirit of the other ongoing dialogue to resolve the crisis in the region.

Eradiri, who advised the Federal Government to call off the military operations, said he had been inundated with complaints of people scampering for safety and fleeing into the forest on sighting the troops.

He said such operations amounted to insincerity on the part of the government to be demanding dialogue and at the same time conducting an exercise to launch a major military offensive in the region.

Eradiri insisted that any form of military action in the region could jeopardise the efforts of the Niger Delta leaders spearheaded by Chief Edwin Clark to resolve the crisis.

The IYC President said, “The Edwin Clark Committee has brought all Niger Delta leaders together. The Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta and  the Niger Delta Avengers support them. The other day, the Minister for Petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu, met with them again.

“The unfortunate fact is whether government is sincere in this whole business. How can the military within the period announce that they are carrying out an exercise in the Niger Delta?

“They should have suspended whatever exercise they wanted to carry out. There is a heavy presence of military, mobilising into the Niger Delta through Sapele. That exercise should have been suspended at this period.

Eradiri noted that the government still held the knife and the yam in resolving the crisis in the region, advising President Muhammadu Buhari to demonstrate sincerity of purpose in the resolution of the problems.

He alleged, “President Buhari has not shown sincerity. He must withdraw the military from the Niger Delta if he wants genuine discussions. We are skeptical seeing many soldiers, mobilising and jumping here and there.

“We don’t have a Sambisa forest where militants are stationed and waiting for the government like in the North. There is nothing like that. This battle is more of an intelligence-civil strategy instead of an invasion that is old-fashioned. It will clearly jeopardise the dialogue.”
