WIKE IS LAYING A NEW FOUNDATION FOR GROWTH IN RIVERS STATE - PIDOMSON

Hon. Gabriel Pidomson, Chairman of Board of Trustees of Wike Solidarity Movement, WSM, Speaking after donating a bus to the organisation at the inauguration of the National Executive Council/ State Working Committee of WSM in Port Harcourt recently.

Hon. Gabriel pidomson express himself by the following speeches;
I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by all our past and present leaders. I thank His Excellency, Governor Ezenwo Nyesom Wike for his service to Rivers State and to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation of all of you Rivers people. So it has been. So it must be with this generation of Rivers People.
That we are in the midst of crisis in Nigeria is now well understood. Our nation is at war, against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred. Our economy is badly weakened, a consequence of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some, but also our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the nation for a new age. Homes have been lost; jobs shed; businesses shuttered. Our health care is too costly and epileptic; our schools fail too many; and each day brings further evidence that the APC government lacks the capacity to lead Nigeria to the promised land. These are the indicators of crisis, subject to data and statistics. Less measurable but no less profound is a sapping of confidence across our land — a nagging fear that Nigeria’s decline is inevitable, and that the next generation must lower its sights if the APC government continues at the center, or clinches power in Rivers State. Today I say to you that the challenges we face are real. They are serious and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span of time. But know this, my dear Rivers People, that with a great leader like Nyesom Wike, these challenges will be met and even subdued.
To date, six executive governors have taken the Oath of Office to lead Rivers State from the Brick House. The words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. Yet, ever so often the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. At these moments, Rivers people have carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because we the people have remained faithful to the ideals of our forebears. However, from 2015 to date, there has been change that is not only apparent and resounding, but also great. That is the trust on which the Initiative for Amity and Great Leadership based its decision for a project intended to project a man who has not only shown an astute, responsible, responsive, and transformational leadership, but GREAT Leadership. In this organization, we are not focused on good leaders, but great Leaders, and we have identified Nyesom Wike as a Great leader, thus the need to mobilize behind this great leader, and support him come 2019.

The Wike Solidarity Movement is a movement that captures all facets of the populace: politicians in all 23 Local governments, traders, teachers, doctors, nurses, farmers, and a treasure trove of special mobilization clusters. 29 National Executives and 164 State Working Committee members will be sworn into office to commence the mobilization of Rivers People to vote and defend their votes in the 2019 elections. On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord, amity and solidarity over disagreement. On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics. Today we come together, resolved to resist any attempt to steal our votes. Today we come together, resolved to mobilize Rivers people to say that if anyone no matter how highly placed, or in whatever disguise attempts to rig the 2019 elections, our response will be Massive, Effective, and Overwhelming!!
We remain a young State led by an energetic leader, Nyesom Wike; but in the words of scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness. And we have chosen to do so with our votes: Votes we shall cast, monitor how it is counted and collated, and wait for the results to be announced.

For all of you who will be inaugurated for the task ahead, please note that our journey will not be one of shortcuts or settling for less.

NIGERIAN ARMY DID NOT ATTACK LEADER OF IPOB NNAMDI KANU'S HOME NOR KILL ANYONE


By Echezona Felix. The attention of 14 Brigade Nigerian Army, has been drawn to fictitious news going round especially on the social media that troops have invaded the home of Nnamdi Kanu and killed 3 persons. This is far from the truth. Rather, it was a group of suspected IPOB militants that blocked the road against troops of 145 Battalion while on show of force along FMC-Word Bank Road in Umuahia town, Abia State at about 6.00-6.30pm, today. They insisted that the military vehicles would not pass and started pelting the soldiers with stones and broken bottles to the point of injuring an innocent female passerby and a soldier, Corporal Kolawole Mathew. The troops fired warning shots in the air and the hoodlooms dispersed. No life was lost. Therefore the public are kindly enjoined to disregard the rumours going round and the fictitious photographs of purported victims of attack. Both the soldier and the innocent female passerby have been evacuated to the unit's Medical Inspection Room and are receiving treatment. We would like to use this opportunity to warn mischief makers threatening the peace and security of the country through falsehood such as above. Members of the public are please requested to go about their lawful business and report any suspicious activity to the nearest police station or security outfit. You are please requested to disseminate this information to the public through your medium. Thank you for your kind cooperation. Major Oyegoke Gbadamosi Assistant Director Army Public Relations 14 Brigade Nigerian Army

RELIGION, SCIENCE AND THE REST OF US.


Recently I've engaged with some religious fellows, chatting away about current affairs and social issues affecting our society and lives. And one thing they all seem to have in common and always lay claim on, in order to explain and provide answers to the question of 'WHY' these incidents and occurrence happen.
The categorical claim they're all "Signs of the End Time" "Jesus is coming Soon" Judgement Day is Near"

HIV/AIDS  and Ebola attacked  Africa so hard, thousands of lives were lost. Scientists swung into action in their various laboratories in search of solutions. Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics, psychologists from across the world were rushing down to help.
Cuba ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡บ sent a ship ๐Ÿšข load of medicines with hundreds of medical doctors and Nurses to Sierra Leone ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฑ to help combat the epidemic. Some personnels and volunteers from Europe and America died in the process of saving another humans life.

Then I always thought, where were all the miracle working scammers in Africa? Nigeria? Where were those who claim to heal all manner of diseases in their churches? Those that even claim to raise the dead ๐Ÿ’€? Where were they when their supposed powers were needed? I thought they should've been on the frontline speeding down to Sierra Leone ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฑ, Liberia ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ท and Guinea ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ณ to take Ebola head on. But no, you cowardly hide in your exotic enclaves deceiving some ignorant fellows how the world is coming to an end.

Now, with hurricane Harvey & Irma ravaging and destroying lives and properties in the Caribbean islands ๐ŸŒด and America, with earthquake in Mexico ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ, flooding in India ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ, Nepal ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ต, and Bangladesh ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฉ with mud-sliding in Sierra Leone, the Rohinga  crisis in Myanmar ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฒ. Looks like these horrific incidents have strengthened the resolve of these myopic religious fellows, that they shamelessly called me, and joyfully announced to me, how their world is coming to an end, and how the signs in the word of their imaginary biblical being is coming to pass.


When the whole world is coming together, volunteers are putting their lives on the line to help the victims. All you can do, is hide in your room with your schizophrenic mindset, thanking your genocidal biblical god for destroying the world, and hoping he will appear in the sky to take you to a fictional beautiful city like the "Owellean Sugar Candy mountain"

Well, I've never seen any epidemic or disaster solved or stopped with prayer. It has always been combine effort of  science, scientists, researchers and extra ordinary dare to do abilities of some humans that have saved planet earth thus far.

The world and mostly Africa and most importantly Nigeria ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ need more Scientists, researchers and laboratories and less Preachers, Pastors, Imams, Churches and Mosques. Until then we will still be far removed from the realities around us.

Two money rituals arrested in Oyo state with human flesh


The two suspected money ritualists 


Luck has ran out on two suspected money ritualists after they were caught with human flesh in Oyo state by the police. The two suspected ritualists were identified as Murtala Aliyu (30) and Saheed Raji (40).
 
The state police commissioner, Mr Abiodun Odude said the Federal Highway Patrol team on a stop and search along Ogbomoso-Ilorin Highway, first arrested Aliyu in a commercial vehicle around 6:20p.m. on August 9, with a piece of flesh suspected to be human part.

“Aliyu, an Arabic teacher, later confessed he was given the flesh by Raji for money rituals; the second suspect was subsequently arrested at Idumota in Lagos State,” Odude said.
 
In his confessional statement, Raji, a herbs seller in Idumota, said he contracted the Arabic teacher (Aliyu) to help him make charms that would make him record faster sales.
 
Also, a fake UCH medical doctor was apprehended by men of the police in the state. Parading the suspects, Odude promised that policemen would continue to work towards ensuring peace and tranquility in the state.
 
Speaking during the parade of the suspected criminals at the state police headquarters, Eleyele, Ibadan, Mr Odude said the 40-year-old fake medical doctor, Orimisan, had been parading himself as a staff of the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan.
 
“The suspect, who claimed to be knowledgeable in curing some ailments through herbs, had been obtaining money from owners of chemist shops in Ibadan under the guise of checking for fake drugs.

“The suspect had gone to a drug store at Abanla village in Idi-Ayunre, in Oluyole Local Government Area of the state and fraudulently collected some drugs and money.

“A report was thereafter made to the Idi-Ayunre Police Division, which eventually led to his arrest


“Items recovered from him included a fake Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) identity card, a stethoscope, a pair of white overall and some certificates suspected to have been forged or stolen,” the police commissioner said.

However, while speaking, the suspect-Orimisan, said he was invited to Abanla village to treat a lady, and after he was done, he saw a patent medicine store owner and went there, introducing himself as a staff of UCH, and that he had been sent to check the validity of their drugs.

“The lady then invited the police, and that was how I was arrested,” Orimisan said
