RIVERS BOAT MISHAP: Abe seeks stiffer regulations from authorities

Governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Senator Magnus Ngei Abe, has called for stiffer regulations for the marine transport sector in Rivers State in order to check incessant cases of boat mishap on the waterways. Abe spoke against the backdrop of a recent boat accident along the Bakana waterways, Degema Local Government Area, which resulted in several fatalities. He described the late Joseph Blankson, who died while rescuing his fellow passengers when the boat they were travelling in capsized on Saturday, July 28, 2018, as a genuine hero.

Ongoing voter registration exercise in Rivers State is weary for residents

The head of Voters’ Education and Publicity Department at the Independent Electoral Commission in Rivers State, Edwin Enabor said at the beginning of this year, that ongoing voters registration exercise at the Port Harcourt City Local Government head office enrolls up to 500 persons per day. This has not stopped from my investigation till date. INEC started the continuous registration process on April 27, 2017 to enable qualified persons to obtain their Permanent Voters Cards, PVCs.  To register, or sort out any issue with your PVC, visit any INEC office from 9 a.m-3 p.m Mondays to Saturdays. However, you have to wait for at least six (6) hours before you register. This is because there is so much crowd and few registration officials. This is time wasting and frustrating for residents who abandons work to spend the whole day at INEC office for this exercise.

THE POWER OF *I AM SORRY.*

*I am sorry,* a short but mighty sentence! If you wish to live long, don’t joke with this short sentence, *I am sorry.* Do you know how many people who had gone to early graves because they neglected the therapeutic power of *I am sorry.* Single sorry can stop a war, and prevents millions of men, women including children from dying! Most of the troubles in most homes are heightened because wives are too big to say *I am sorry* to their husbands and you can trust the ego of husbands in saying same to their wives. Quarrel lingers between friends because no party wants to say *I am sorry.* each says or asks, why should I be the first to say *I am sorry?* He or she would beat his or her chest and utter the ego-phrase, *a whole me!* Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the part of the world where saying *I am sorry* is a hard nut to crack while curses are easily unleashed.

NO APC CONGRESS HELD IN RIVERS – ABE …Urges Nigerians to help less privileged in society

A governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Senator Magnus Ngei Abe, has declared that there were no congresses of the party in the state. This is as the senator called on Nigerians, to always remember that no matter how difficult things may seem there is always something we can do to make it a little easier for those in greater need, especially the sick and less privileged. Abe, who spoke at a brief get-together to mark his 53rd birthday at his liaison office, Freedom House in Port Harcourt, said Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya remains the Chairman of the APC in the state as there were no congresses at all levels. While urging his supporters to remain calm, the senator advised party faithful to exercise caution on social media and stop insulting leaders and officers of the party.

Africa – Our Future is Agriculture

Agriculture is a crucial economic activity, providing employment and livelihoods for many and serving as the basis for many industries. In most African countries, agriculture supports the survival and well-being of up to 70 percent of the population. Thus, for many, their livelihoods are directly affected by environmental changes, both sudden and gradual, which impact on agricultural productivity. Livestock and environmental goods offer some security from such shocks. About 70 percent of the rural poor in Africa own livestock, contributing significantly to household and community resilience to disasters, particularly in arid and semi-arid zones. More than 200 million people rely on their livestock for income (sales of milk, meat, skins) and drought power. Overall, livestock contributes about 30 percent of the gross value of agricultural production in Africa. According to the International Livestock Research Center (ILRI), opportunities exist to commercialize livestock production to target regional deficits in livestock products where they can be produced competitively.

My Disagreement with Amaechi Is Political – ABE

A governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Senator Magnus Ngei Abe, has declared that his disagreement with leader of the party in the state and Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi is political. Abe, in a statement issued in Port Harcourt by his spokesperson, Parry Saroh Benson, said Amaechi has publicly declared that he will not support his governorship aspirations. The senator said, “I am amused by some of these allegations and stories making the rounds. For the records, the disagreement between me and the Minister (Amaechi) is political. He is the leader of the party but he has said publicly on several occasions that he can never support me. “That means the entire country knows that he cannot pretend to be neutral or an unbiased umpire in any matter in which my interest and the interests of those interested in me are concerned. Yet, as the leader it is his responsibility to provide a level playing field for us all.”

WASTEFULNESS AND POVERTY by Venerable Justice Okoronkwo: Pleases read, meditate on and adjust if you are wasteful.

“When I fed the 5,000 with five loaves of bread, how many baskets of leftovers did you pick up afterward?” “Twelve,” they said. Mark 8:19 NLT Is poverty a curse that makes men mad? Here’s a true story, as told me by a second hand witness. Two Nigerians ordered oversized plates of food they didn’t need from an expensive restaurant somewhere in Germany. The waiters thought these were unusual amounts of food but what the heck, if they were this hungry. Surprises awaited them. Moments later, maybe to impress the white man, the men took just a few nibbles from their plates, shoved the food away and motioned the waiter for their bill. “You have to finish the food, Sirs,” the bewildered waiter politely told them. “No, we’re okay, no problem,” they answered, laughing. “But you have to eat the food, you cannot throw this amount of food away” insisted the restaurateur. The two men looked each other in the face, muttering, in Warri accent, “Shooooow?”
