Nigeria Confederation Cup: Enyimba, Dolphins qualify for final

Enyimba defeated Giwa FC 1-0 in Abeokuta.

Enyimba International Football Club of Aba on Thursday in Abeokuta defeated Giwa FC of Jos 1-0 to qualify for the final match of the 2014 Men’s Federation Cup.

The first half of the match, which was played at the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abeokuta, ended goalless. The only goal of the match came in the 51st minute off the boots of Rafael Boumsoung.

At the end of the match, Enyimba’s coach, Kadiri Ikhana, expressed satisfaction at his team’s performance, saying his players lived up to expectations.

He, however, said the match’s scoreline could have been heavier against Giwa FC if his players had taken their chances.

The coach promised to correct identified lapses ahead of the final match against Dolphins FC of Port Harcourt.

The former Cup champions, coached by Stanley Eguma, had also defeated Prime FC of Oshogbo 1-0 in the second semi-final match, played at FIFA Goal Project pitch in Abuja.

Speaking also in Abeokuta, the coach of Giwa FC, Duke Udi, commended his team for giving Enyimba a run for their money.

“Given that Giwa FC is relatively new in Nigeria’s top-flight football, it can be said that playing in the semi-finals of the Federation Cup was not a bad result,’’ he said.

  • John 18:22-23, One of the officers struck Jesus with the palm of his
    hand, saying, “Do You answer the high priest like that?” Jesus answered,
    “If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil, but if well, WHY DO
    YOU STRIKE ME?”

    Luke 22:36-38 teaches that Christians can PROTECT earthly-Life,

    while John 18:36-37 teaches that true-Christians don’t aim
    for Political power.

    Luke 22:36-38 (Jesus told his followers) “But now, whoever has a money-bag,

    let him take it … and whoever has no SWORD, let him sell his garment and buy one.”

    … So they said, “Lord, here are two SWORDS.” And Jesus said, “It is enough.”

    John 18 … Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom
    were of this world, My servants would fight so that I should not be
    delivered TO [CRUCIFIXION and Resurrection], but now My kingdom is not
    from here.” Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?” Jesus
    answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born,
    and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should BEAR
    WITNESS TO THE TRUTH. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” …

    This article takes biblical scripture out of context. I am hoping the author of this article is simply…misinformed and that the Holy Spirit will lead this person to the Truth. I am praying that the author is not one as described in this scripture:2 Peter 2:1’But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction.’I say this because here is the indestructible truth about God’s Word: The Old Testament and the New Testament absolutely correlate with one another. The teachings of both are the same. They do not conflict with one another in the least. Matthew 5:17 ‘Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.’ Regarding one glaring scripture error above Exodus21:23-25 is taken out of context-for in the preceding verse it is written: 22 “If men fight, and hurt a woman with child, so that she gives birth prematurely, yet no harm follows, he shall surely be punished accordingly as the woman’s husband imposes on him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.” And yet the author takes the scripture out of context stating that God’s Law demanded an ‘eye for an eye’- not to mention the fact that this scripture is in dealing with a matter that has nothing to do with whether or not Christians should fight war…?? I would suggest the author rewrite this article and we have another look see at his stance at that time;-P #JesusIsLord #ToGodBeTheGlory

    • Mainstream Christianity in Nigeria has given birth to heretics such
      as T.B. Joshua, Femi Aribisala, E.A. Adeboye, and MANY MORE. They all
      regard personal experience with “God” as being on the same
      level/authority as the Written Word, and in some cases more
      authoritative than the Written Word. Therefore, many Pastors in Nigeria
      emphasize sayings such as the following:

      God’s works cannot be limited to what is recorded in an inspired book called
      “the Holy Bible.” Thus says the Lord: “Behold, I will do A NEW THING …”
      (Isaiah 43:19). — Femi Aribisala, “Dreaming Dreams of the Almighty (3)”

      Such sayings are a major foundation for most Pastors in Nigeria
      and they use it as LICENSE for all sorts of teaching and practices which
      are of the Subtle-one, the fake-Christ whose spirit is already preparing (and DESENSITIZING) the world for his coming.

      I encourage everyone who claims to be Christian to “… contend earnestly
      for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. …” (Jude 1:3-4)
      but to do this ALSO TO THEIR BELOVED CHURCHES (e.g., RCCG), TO THEIR BELOVED PASTORS (e.g., D. Oyedepo). This may definitely mean the founding of new fellowships because usually the Leaders of the Churches don’t like Scriptural Corrections.

      Similar to mainstream-Christianity in Nigeria, not all of Aribisala’s teachings are blatantly of the fake-Christ, some of his teachings are “true” to the Scriptures.

      Aribisala, like many Pastors in Nigeria THINK THEIR OWN SAYINGS ARE ON
      THE SAME LEVEL/AUTHORITY WITH THE ORIGINAL APOSTLES (THE SCRIPTURES). That’s delusion by the spirit of the fake-Christ.

      Clearly, Aribisala is misleading souls concerning Scriptures such as:
      Revelation 1:5 “… To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins
      in His own blood”.

    How will the author reconcile his article with Luke 22:36 where Jesus asked his disciples to sell their coat and buy a sword? Are they going to use the sword for decorations or for catching fish?
