Today's News: Fani-Kayode Knocks Okotie For Insulting TB Joshua, Lawan Breaks Silence On Twitter Ban

Fani-Kayode Knocks Okotie For Insulting TB Joshua

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has slammed the senior pastor of the Household of God Church, Chris Okotie, for insulting the late Prophet T.B Joshua.

Days after Joshua who is the founder of the Synagogue Church of Nation died last Sunday, June 6, Okotie shared a cryptic post many interpreted to be an attack on TB Joshua’s memory.

A part of his post read: ‘‘The wizard at Endor who assumed the title Emmanuel, has been consumed by divine indignation. And now his disciples bewail his ignominious exit.”

Nigeria's Senate President finally speaks on Twitter ban

Nigeria’s Senate President Ahmad Lawan Friday was still evasive about taking a stand on the ban by the Federal Government on Twitter, an action that has generated widespread reactions.

Lawan, however, expressed optimism that the planned dialogue between the federal government and Twitter will end the ban on the microblogging site in Nigeria.

The Senate may have disappointed many Nigerians on the expectations that it will at the resumption of plenary on Tuesday touch the issue of the ban on Twitter by the Federal Government as no motion or any matter of urgent national importance was moved.
