Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has advised politicians not to see politics as a matter of do-or-die affairs. Obasanjo gave the advice on Saturday in Calabar at the public presentation of a book titled: `Stepping Forward with Uti J.D. Agba and Mathias Okoi-Uyouyo.
Obasanjo,
who was the special guest of honour at the event, said that
politicians, who fail elections can help those who win elections to
succeed for the growth of the nation.

“Politics should not be about life or death. Politicians should learn how to thread with caution as 2019 elections draw closer.
“If
you cannot be the chief servant you can be the assistant chief servant.
This is because the chief servant cannot do it on his own; he has to
work with others,”
he said.
Also, Gov. Ben Ayade of Cross River said that politicians, who could not be in power should support those in power to ensure development.
Ayade
stressed the need for all politicians to work together irrespective of
their political parties for the development of the people they
represent.
“Power is like the wind which blows away. In using power, one must do so with the fear of God,” Ayade said.
The
governor supported the book presentation with a donation of N5 million
on behalf of the state government and another N5 million in his personal
capacity.
Author of the book, Mr Goddy Jeddy Agba,
said that the people of Cross River should be one, adding that it was
important for all stakeholders to work together for the ultimate growth
and development of the state.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the book was reviewed by Prof. Kalu Uka of the University of Uyo.
Agba’s father, His Royal Highness Uti Jeddy Agba has been the Paramount Ruler of Obudu in Cross River for 58 years.

Dignitaries who graced the occasion are the Etsu Nupe of Nupe Kingdom, Alhaji Dr Yahaya Abubakar, the Obong of Calabar, Edidem Okon Abasi-Otu V, former governor of Cross River Sen. Liyel Imoke among others.

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
