YENAGOA- A  nonpartisan sociopolitical youth group, Organising for Bayelsa has endorsed a Lagos based Bayelsan born businessman Mr. Keniebi Diton Okoko as its candidate for the 2019 gubernatorial election in Bayelsa State.

The group reached this position in a meeting held in Yenagoa, it identified that Bayelsa is in dire need of a fix and only men with strong proof of industry and entrepreneurial acumen should be sort for and supported to run in 2019 elections.
The coordinator of the group, Mr. Rex Ebitimi who spoke to newsmen after the meeting stated that the group had reached this decision after extensive consultations. He  further highlighted that though he does not have any personal relationship with Okoko, a committee was set-up to investigate some persons nominated for endorsement to run for different elective offices for the 2019 polls and the reports from all the teams scored the young Okoko very high.
The group alluded to the fact that Okoko is fresh to the political space haven participated only once in 2005 elections contesting in the PDP House of Assembly primaries against Rt. Hon. Werinipre Seibariogu. The statement by the group insisted that “Okoko brings fresh air to Bayelsa political leadership, he has succesfully started his business from nothing and grown it into a multibillion Naira investment. He has shown support for community service at various times though he has never at anytime appropriated public funds neither has his business been patronised by any government at any level. Okoko is our hope of a prosperous future for Bayelsa. Keniebi [as his name is] is the _*one good*_ God has gifted our generation.”

They therefore called on all Bayelsan youths to rally round Okoko and convince him to contest for the governorship of Bayelsa state while also mobilising to support him.
The group’s statement concluded by enjoining all young people of the voting age to take advantage of the on-going voters registration to register in a neighborhood that they will not need transportation to go and vote. They called on the leadership and card carrying members of the any political party that Okoko chooses to support him and be assured of victory in the general polls.

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.
