Governor Okowa urges Nigerians to refrain from provocative utterances

Published

on

Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa
of Delta on Sunday appealed to Nigerians to guide against provocative
utterances that could lead to war, but continue to pray for the peace
and unity of the country. Okowa made the call at a
thanksgiving service to mark the second anniversary of the state’s
sixth House of Assembly at the Living Faith Church in Asaba.

Okowa said prayer was necessary to overcome the present challenges facing the nation.
According
to the governor, Nigeria today depends on God to continue to survive
because in the last few days a lot of things have happened.
There is threat by the words of men but I know that by God’s grace, Nigeria is one and God will continue to keep us together.
“In
this very trying time, Christians must be on their kneels to continue
to pray for this nation; we do not want to see any more wars neither do
we want to see things that will put us apart from one another
.’’
Okowa, therefore, advised Nigerians to reflect on the past in order to forge ahead.
The governor urged the lawmakers to put God first in all their activities.
“This is the only way you can impact on the lives of the people of the state even in this present time,’’ he said.
He congratulated them for the successful completion of the second session of the sixth assembly.
Okowa also called on parents to influence their children positively as they were leaders of tomorrow.
We must realise that it is time for us to think and reflect on the past, examine our homes and examine ourselves.’’
Also, the Speaker, Chief Sheriff Oborevwori, who read Psalm 100:1-5, thanked God for a successful session.
“It is good to give thanks to God in all things and we hope and pray for the best as we move into the third session.
“I
want to assure the people of the state that we are ever ready to
deliver on the mandate of Deltans because that is what we are elected to
do,
’’ he added.
Earlier in his sermon, Pastor Julius Oyinloye stressed the need for Christians to always give thanks to God, saying that thanksgiving was a command from the scripture.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
