Published

Gov Rochas Okorocha
of Imo has banned traditional rulers in the State from speaking in
English at official functions and while conducting affairs at their
palaces. Okorocha gave the directive
while handing over letters of recognition and staffs of office to 19
newly recognized traditional rulers in the State in Owerri on Tuesday.

He
directed that every monarch must only speak in Igbo at functions and in
their palaces, adding that interpreters could be employed if the need
arises.
The governor said this was in a bid to ensure that the Igbo language did not die as predicted in some quarters.
He
also told traditional rulers in the state to be agents of peace,
progress and prosperity in their respective domains instead of being
tools of disunity and destabilization.
He 
warned that any traditional ruler who could not show genuine leadership
in his autonomous community would have his Certificate of Recognition
and Staff of Office withdrawn.
The
governor further encouraged the new traditional rulers to help the
government to develop the resources of the state while urging them to
rule equitably.
Every community
requires an Eze to function effectively as the head of the Community
Government Council. Today, that responsibility has fallen on you.
”I
urge you not to fail as failure is not an option and I encourage you to
help the government in developing the resources of our land.
“Remember
that to whom much is given much is expected. This whole exercise you
must understand is not an election or appointment to enable you
distinguish between those who love you and those who hate you.
“Today,
you are an Eze, and you must be the Eze for everyone both those against
you and those who were for you. I advise you to take all of them along
and embrace peace.
”Your first
assignment should be to invite those who were against you to make peace
in your land as no Eze can function effectively if there is no peace in
your land,”
he said.
Delivering a
vote of thanks vote of thanks, Eze Lucky Ajoku of Ihiagwa Autonomous
Community, promised that they will embrace peace.
Ajoku
also pledged the support of the monarchs in helping the government
attain the lofty ideals of the Community Government Councils in their
various communities.

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.

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
