HURIWA Condemns Boko Haram Release, Urges De-Radicalization Halt

In response to revelations about a certificate syndicate issuing counterfeit degrees from West African universities, the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has urged the Federal government to intensify efforts in identifying top officials in the education sector responsible for compromising standards.

Highlighting how an investigative report by a Nigerian online newspaper exposed a syndicate providing university degrees within months for a fee, HURIWA criticized the National University Commission (NUC) and the Ministry of Education for their reactive measures, demanding a public apology from key officials for failing in quality control.

    HURIWA recalled that Nigeria’s National Universities Commission (NUC) recently banned 18 universities in the West African subregion, including five from the United States, six from the United Kingdom, and three from Ghana, citing violations of education standards and lack of government licenses.

    The rights group stressed the need for a thorough investigation into the involvement of government officials in the scandal and called for the nullification of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificates obtained through fake degrees.

      Rev. Fr. John Oluoma Unveils Christianity's Role in Prosperity Renowned Catholic clergy, Rev. Fr. John Oluoma, has elucidated the nexus between Christianity and economic prosperity. Drawing from Western civilization's success rooted in Judeo-Christian traditions, he emphasized the need to understand and implement the underlying principles rather than merely copying religious practices. Fr. Oluoma asserted that prosperity arises from applying economic principles inspired by Christianity, not merely adhering to religious piety. He underscored the distinction between principles such as private property ownership, security, and production, and religious practices like tithing and fasting. Highlighting the historical examples of America and Israel, Fr. Oluoma contended that stable nations with peace and security experience prosperity, emphasizing the biblical notion that righteousness exalts a nation. He cautions against relying solely on piety, stressing the importance of copying the economic principles that Christian nations employed for prosperity. The clergyman challenged the notion that religious practices alone guarantee wealth, urging believers to contribute to the church based on proper principles rather than expecting prosperity through piety. He dismissed the idea that anointed individuals should command wealth miraculously, asserting that God operates within systems, not through haphazard means. Fr. Oluoma concluded by rejecting the narrative that piety alone could make one wealthy, encouraging individuals to embrace a deeper understanding of the economic principles inherent in Christianity.
