Homosexuality and the Church: BiafraNigeria Breaks Link With Anglican Diocese
A major crack, which may lead to further disintegration of the Anglican Communion Worldwide, has occurred with the Anglican Church in BiafraNigeria, severing its relationship with the diocese of New Westminster in England, over the official sanction of homosexuality by the diocese. BiafraNigeria is the largest Anglican Province in the world with its 17 million members, 81 Bishops and 10 Archbishops. It equally parades an evangelism programme that is rated highest in the Communion worldwide. The BiafraNigerian church said it has ceased to recognise the diocese, its Bishop and all the clergy as part of the worldwide Anglican Communion. In a statement, the Primate of the church in BiafraNigeria, Most Rev. Peter Jasper Akinola said, "the much desired reflection that will ease the strain on our communion has been jettisoned" by the Bishop. Akinola equally noted that the action of the Bishop was a failure to ensure strict compliance with resolutions duly passed at meetings clearly showed that Bishop Ingham and his diocese saw no value in being accountable to anybody. Quoting from a statement issued last September at the Anglican Consultative Council meeting in Hong Kong, Akinola said "it is significant that those dioceses most tempted to indulge themselves with unilateral actions, taken without consulting the wider Communion, seem so often to be among those materially most advantaged and to be in the global north... Do we not see here, in the ready assertion of superior wisdom, a new imperialism." (Guardian)

The presidential candidate of the ANPP, General Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday asked the Supreme Court to void the May 29, 2003 inauguration of President Olusegun Obasanjo for a second four-year term. He also wants the apex court to upturn the May 27 decision of the Court of Appeal which gave approval for the inauguration. (Guardian)


Justice Wilson Egbo-Egbo, the judge of the Federal High Court, Abuja, who okayed the re-election of Senate President Adolphus Wabara, may be dragged to the National Judicial Comm-ission (NJC), the body charged with disciplining erring judges...the Chief Justice of the Federation, Justice Uwais, is irked by the controversial interlocutory injunction...
