Ned Nwoko urges ASELGON to be committed to nation building

Published

A former member of the Federal House of Representatives and an international lawyer of repute, Prince Ned Nwoko has urged members of the Association of Ex-Local Government Chairmen of Nigeria (ASELGON) to be committed to nation building.
Nwoko spoke during his investiture as the Grand Patron of the Association in his mansion in Idumuje Ugboko, Delta State on Saturday 23rd November, 2019.
The politician stated that the responsibility was big for him as the first grand patron of the association, adding that he would do his best to support their ideals.
“I have no doubt that with little support and your zeal, you will play a lot of roles in nation building.
“I am a grassroots person also, even if you have 30% support across all the local governments, you can make a lot of difference,” he said.
The former lawmaker told the members of the association that their job required consistency and commitment.
He lamented that Nigeria is a country of survival of the fittest unlike Britain, which he said was different because, according to him, they understand what politics is all about service.
“I will support your cause and join hands with you so that we can all move Nigeria forward.
“My joy is to see that Nigeria catches up with the rest of the world and we can achieve a lot of things together with unity and commitment to our cause as a group and individually,” he said, while commending the members of ASELGON for their coming up with such an association.
Nwoko however, said that what was needed in Nigeria was a level of exposure and the zeal to do what is right.
According to him, if we have 60% of the people in offices understanding why they were elected, Nigeria would be better.
He regretted that the country had not laid the foundation for good governance, while saying that he was non-partisan within him.
While saying that he could be more comfortable living abroad, he said that he preferred to stay in Nigeria and urged the people to live above religious sentiments.
Earlier in his address, the National President of ASELGON, Hon. Albert Asipa said that the Forum was inaugurated in 2013 as an umbrella body for ex-local government chairmen to provide a platform for them as experienced  individuals who still have a lot to contribute immensely to the overall development of the third tier of government in Nigeria.
Asipa stated that the forum was of the opinion that the choice of Prince Ned Nwoko as a Grand Patron of the association would further enhance their resolve to reposition  local government administration in Nigeria for good; “taking into cognizance, your unrelenting effort in the years past to get a share of the  Paris refund to the coffers of local government councils across the nation.
“This particular feat and other factors culminated in today’s Award of Excellent Service to Humanity and investiture as ASELGON Grandpatron.”
Also speaking, the National Organising Secretary of ASELGON, Hon. Abayomi Tella revealed that the name of Prince Ned Nwoko came up, when they had their NEC meeting in Abuja.
“We discussed who could be our Grand Patron and we went into the internet and saw the name of Prince Ned Nwoko. We discovered that he sponsored about 20 bills as a member of the Federal House of Representatives within four years.
“You will not only serve the people of  Delta State, you will serve the whole Nigeria, where all of us would benefit.
“We would want the Grand Patron to take us as partners in the development of Nigeria, and Africa as a whole and support us to deal with all our challenges,” he said.
The investiture was attended by former local government chairmen across the 36 states of the federation representing the 774 local governments of Nigeria.

Labour minister, Keyamo advises daughter on secrets of marital bliss

Published

on

The honourable Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo SAN has advised one of his blood relations who got married over the weekend on what it takes to survive marital squabbles.

The Minister disclosed this at the marriage ceremony of his cousin, Maryam Keyamo, who grew up under his tutelage. The lucky bride, Maryam was given in marriage to Desmond Chima, a young and successful media entrepreneur and manager of popular music superstar, Harrysong.

The marriage between the duo has been a fanfare of a sort kicking off in Warri, Delta State with a traditional ceremony before the white wedding was held at the Decorum events centre, Oregun, Ikeja Lagos last Saturday, November 23rd, 2019.

The Minister who attended the wedding in capacity of the Chairman and bride’s ‘father’ bluntly advised the young lady on the secrets of marital bliss, “you have to make sure you submit all to your husband, total submission and respect are some of the basic rules to a lasting marriage”, the Minister warned.

Buttressing his point, the Senior Advocate of Nigeria reminded the newly-wed about their elderly siblings whose marriages have been waxing stronger and why it has been so, “I could remember at a time, long ago before the advent of GSM, my sister left her husband’s house in Port-Harcourt and visited us in Warri, on the second day, my father asked for the letter that authorized her for the visit and when she couldn’t produce it, he compelled her to go back immediately and ever since, she never repeated such strange visit, today she’s been married, I think for 18 years and same with all of them”.

So, Maryam, don’t come and tell me your problems, stay in your husband’s house and I pray God in His infinite mercies continue to bless the union.

On a lighter mood, the Minister took a jibe at the groom, Desmond Chima whom he accused of “stealing” his daughter while on a business mission to his Law Chambers, “I was surprised to see Desmond who was a client still coming around even after the case was over, so I asked them one day, what’s Desmond still looking for here, only to find out he has actually ‘stole’ my daughter”.

On a final note, the Minister advised the groom never to raise his hands on his wife, the worst thing any man can do is to beat his wife, please don’t do it, he told the groom.

Warnings To The Nations: Primate Ayodele prophecy fulfilled in Bayelsa, Kogi elections

Published

on

When a prophet prophesied, it is left for those involved to take to the warnings that followed such prophecies, seek the face of God and avert the impending dooms, danger or defeats. 
The Word of God is constant; that is why a nation must be guided by His Words regularly.
This is what the Man of God keeps saying that we must be divinely guided as a nation at all times.
As far back as the month of March /April 2019 (during the Lenten season) these are the exact Words of the Lord as regards the just concluded State Governorship election in Bayelsa State.
The divine statements through the Servant of God, Babatunde Elijah Ayodele (Jp) are contained on page 42 of the 2019/2020 Edition of the Book of Prophecies titled WARNINGS TO THE NATIONS – A collection of Divine Signals: it goes thus:
“ The coming election (Bayelsa) will pose a serious challenge even as I foresee serious internal wrangling in the PDP, There will be crisis among the members of the PDP, which must be resolved before it is too late. The APC will be making a lot efforts and also look for avenues to win the election. The PDP must put their acts together to win. The APC will employ and make different moves to destroy and run down the activities of the PDP led government. If the APC adopts new strategies and are focused and do the needful it will capture the state”.
Also in Kogi,  he had warned PDP to pick the right and the most popular candidate who can defeat incumbent Governor Yahaya Bello, that there will be violence all in a bid to return the incumbent, and all these has now come to fulfilment.
