BREAKING: Brazil Legend, Pele, Dies at 82 After Battle with Cancer


His death was confirmed by family on social media.

He had been battling colon cancer since 2021, with a medical report just before Christmas showing that he required care for cardiac and renal dysfunction.

He had been admitted to the Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein in Sao Paulo on November 29.

Earlier this week, Pele’s daughter, Kely Nascimento, had confirmed members of his family would spend Christmas in the hospital with him.

On Saturday, she posted a picture on Instagram which showed her sitting next to one of Pele’s sons, Edinho, and two of his children at the hospital.

“He (Edson) is here,” Kely Nascimento wrote alongside the picture, adding in a hashtag “I will not be leaving, nobody will take me out of here.”

Pele appeared on the global scene as a 17-year-old at the 1958 World Cup, helping Brazil to the first of their record five successes.

Injury affected Pele’s contribution to the 1962 and 1966 finals, but he returned to lead Brazil to a third triumph, this time in Mexico in 1970 as part of what is widely regarded as the greatest international team of all time.

Officially, Pele scored 757 goals in 831 games during a career from 1957 to 1977, although club Santos claim his tally was closer to 1,000.

lmo traders count losses after mystery fire razed over 200 shops


 Property and goods worth billions of naira have been destroyed by fire at a popular timber market, along Wethedral Road in Owerri, the state capital.

NIGERIANEWSLITE spoke to some of the traders in Owerri, on Monday and gathered that the inferno, which started at 1:30 am on Saturday, December 24, destroyed over 200 shops and goods worth over four billion naira.

The traders and residents were seen trying to salvage what they could from their shops even as the fire was still raging in some parts of the market as of 1 pm on Monday, despite efforts by operatives of the Federal Fire Service to quench it.

An eye witness, Mr Chinioke Osuji, avowed that the inferno affected over 200 shops, with one of the traders losing 13 industrial machines, each worth six million naira.

The cause of the inferno was yet to be ascertained.

A trader who spoke anonymously told NIGERIANEWSLITE: “I lost my two industrial machines and other items. We didn’t take out a single pin from the shops. Everything was lost. This is unbearable.”

He said: “This is a black Christmas for us. We don’t know where to go from here. Nobody knows the cause of the outbreak. We lost over four billion naira here.”

Mr Benjamin Onyewuchi, an eye witness, said that several efforts made by firefighters to quench the fire proved abortive as it kept raging strongly.

He also appealed to Governor Hope Uzodimma to come to the aid of the victims in whatever way possible to ameliorate their plight.

When NIGERIANEWSLITE contacted the Zonal Public Relations Officer of the Federal Fire Service, Zone J (Imo and Abia), Mr Mike Anowa, he described the accident as unfortunate and explained that the actual cause of the inferno and the resultant losses are yet to be ascertained

1. FORNICATION is not a norm.


1. FORNICATION is not a norm.

Even if it has become so so common, it is a great SIN to GOD and a DISSERVICE to your BODY.

2. EXPOSING SENSITIVE PARTS of your body as a lady or DRESSING RECKLESSLY is not a big girl thing.

It is foolishness and a sin in the sight of God. Wearing of MAD PEOPLE CLOTHES is not called fashion.

It is called indecency and it grieves God.

3. VIRGINITY is not a sign of weakness or even sexual malfunction.

It is a sign of purity - something to be proud of that you have not been desecrated by the unworthy and filthy. No one should make them feel foolish because of being a virgin.

 3. That VIRGINITY is a wedding present to your husband not a birthday present to boyfriends.

Don't enter your matrimonial home perforated.

4.That VIRGINITY should not be just about the sexual organs.

The eyes, hands, legs and mind should be virgins too.

If these parts get corrupted with immorality, soon the genitals will confirm the corruption.


5. FEMALES are not mere objects of sexual gratification. There is more to a WOMAN than her BREAST and BUTTOCKS.

 6.That the BREAST God gave women is for breastfeeding and not to be used for Facebook likes and comments or to gain more fans.

7.Not having a GIRLFRIEND does not make you less of a MAN.

It makes you a MAN with a lot of control. It makes you a rare kind of a MAN in a world pervaded by immorality.


 8. Not having a BOYFRIEND doesn’t mean you will run mad or something terrible will happen to you.

These are traps the devil has used to destroy the destinies of many young people.

It is a lie from the pit of hell.

No one runs mad because of not having sex.

Remain sexually pure.


9. SEX is not one sure way to prove depth of LOVE.

 If he truly loves you, he will marry you or wait for you until you are ready 

If he is a real man why does he want the sex but not the responsibility of keeping you?

10. SEX is not the solution to your Dysmenorrhea (Menstrual cramps), it is one of those deceits of boys who want to get into your pants!


11. Sperm accumulation has no medical side effect. Your body is equipped to deal with that till you are ready to put them to good use.

Don’t use that as a basis of going into fornication.


12. MASTURBATION is not a safe way to understand your sexuality.

You will only end up teaching yourself how to please yourself not how someone else should please you. You get addicted to it so much that no one can please you as good as you.

It becomes a psychological problem, and it is a sin before God.

Don’t get indulged in that.


13. LESBIANISM is not an option for girls only because men are not looking your direction.

It is FILTHY and a DISGUSTING SIN before God.

As senseless as animals are, they do not get to such level of mental depravity to be lesbians, why humans?

(Please talk to your girls especially about Lesbianism.

It is becoming very common, starting as early as in primary schools.

14. HOMOSEXUALITY is not also an option for boys because they think marriage is costly.

It is FILTHY and a DISGUSTING SIN before God.

As senseless as animals are, they do not get to such level of mental depravity to be gays, why humans?

(Please talk to your boys, especially about Homosexuality.

It is becoming very common, starting as early as in primary schools.

Let’s not also forget to teach them that LIVING FOR GOD is not a burden or a bondage.

Let’s make them understand that God is interested in their youthful age not when they’re old, weak and feeble and the world had retired them that they’ll now come to God.

Let’s teach them that living a HOLY LIFE is possible.

If others can do, they can also do even better.

Let’s make them understand that LIVING FOR GOD doesn’t mean you will be the poorest person  earth, and even if that happens, they should be willing to suffer for God.


Please just share......you may help a brother or sister to REPENT.....TURN FROM EVIL WAYS......

BREAKING: Emefiele Gets 72-Hour Ultimatum To Resign Or Be Sacked By Buhari


The Central Bank of of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Godwin Emefiele, has been issued a 72-hour ultimatum or be removed by President Muhammadu Buhari through the National Assembly.

The ultimatum was issued on Friday by over 30 civil society organizations following allegations of “terrorism financing and economic crimes” leveled against the CBN governor by Nigeria’s State Security Service.

The state service had sought permission to arrest and detain Emefiele to aid further investigation but was denied by a Federal High Court in Abuja on account of lack of sufficient evidence.

However, the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN), the Citizens Network Against Corruption and Terrorism Financing and over 27 civil society advocacy groups have called on Emefiele to humbly resign or risk being disgraced out of office.

The groups said should the CBN governor fail to step down, they would be forced to demand his sacking by the President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Assembly.

“…if there is still a modicum of honour left in Mr. Emefiele, he should immediately resign and submit himself for security examination. We, therefore, offer the assistance of urging the CBN Governor – Mr. Godwin Emefiele – to immediately tender his resignation.

“And if he fails to do so within 72 hours, both President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Assembly should invoke the relevant laws to remove him,” the group said in a statement jointly signed by their respectives.

It added, “Mr. Emefiele is an economic disaster who has messed up every interventionist programme of the Buhari administration, including the Anchor Borrowers Programme and the credit facilities supposedly extended to Farmers through the Nigeria Incentive-based Risk Sharing System for Agricultural Lending (NIRSAL).

“For clarity, under his poor oversight the former Managing Director of the NIRSAL continued to stay in office over a 2018 allegation of corruption amounting to a princely sum of N5.6 billion. He was only removed from office last month after multiple protests and petitions to that effect.

“It is also under his direction, supervision and control that the worst Forex round tripping regime and scam in the history of Nigeria has been allegedly perpetuated. How then can such a man become an emergency saint and economic messiah simply because there is a credible question of National Security sabotage for him to answer?

“Yes, we must admit that there appear to be a coincidence between the maturity of the DSS investigation into his involvement in terrorism financing and the introduction of his military fashioned cashless policy (which was done without any consultation with critical stakeholders, including experts in the financial sector and the representatives of the Nigerian people).

“However, the DSS has never expressed, directly or indirectly, any disagreement with the legal and legitimate policies of the CBN. It is, therefore, unconscionable for anybody to infer that the DSS in doing its own constitutional duty is hunting Mr. Emefiele because of any policy. This is a mischief taken too far. Nigerians must not be deceived by it.

“Rather, Mr. Emefiele must be known for the economic disaster he has orchestrated. He must answer for the alleged crimes of treasonable proportion for which the DSS seeks his clarification of. It is a shame that a public officer of the standing of the CBN Governor wants everything to be politicized.

“Of course, we warned about this dangerous trend when he became partisan, openly aspiring for the Presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC), before he was forced to withdraw. Is there any Nigerian who still genuinely believes that Mr. Godwin EMEFIELE is not a partisan politician? And so, should it surprise anybody that Mr. Emefiele knows that he has crimes to answer to, but is simply polluting the public space with his trademark politics, while hiding under the headship of an independent and ordinarily non-partisan institution like the CBN?”

According to the CSOs, the Central Bank of Nigeria needs “a total, systematic and systemic cleansing” to preserve its sanctity as such, “not only should Emefiele resign or be relieved of his duties as CBN Governor, his deputies and current Directors of CBN should be investigated and all those found culpable should be sacked. The whole institution is in a mess.”

They urged President Buhari to critically look into the allegations against and invoke his powers under the law to sack the CBN Governor in case he refuses to immediately resign.

“But importantly, we urge the DSS to be unwavering in carrying out its National Security duties. No amount of blackmail or intimidation must make it backtrack from the truest and deepest professionalism that its duties require. They have our support and that of other patriots. Nigeria must remain safe, no matter whose ox is gored.

“Let us even seize this moment to salute the DSS for remaining focused and firm in the face of this organized campaign to blackmail the Service. More campaigns are coming. But the DSS must remain strong as long as it is working with the security facts at its disposal.

“We demand of the Federal Government to activate international protocols under the INTERPOL and get Mr. Emefiele back to the country to answer to his alleged crimes. For too long has he presented fake front and agenda to the president. This must not be allowed to persist.

“There are salient questions Nigerians are asking Emefiele at this critical juncture to wit:

Are You A Terrorist? If You Are Not, Why Are You On The Run?

Notable Nigerians Have Been Quizzed By THE DSS. Why Are You Hiding From Scrutiny?

Can You Run The Central Bank Of Nigeria From Abroad?

Is Mr. Emefiele too big to be quizzed and detained?”

The statement was signed by Solomon Adodo, President and Convener of the NYCN; Okpanachi Jacob,

Convener, Civil Society Advocacy Groups for Accountability and Probity; and Balarabe Musa, National Coordinator, Citizens Network Against Corruption and Terrorism Financing.

Others are Suleiman Musa,

Executive Secretary, Empowerment for Unemployed Youths Initiative; Igwe Ude-umanta, Director-General, Nigerian Youth Center for Leadership and Entrepreneurship Development, Gbolahan Adeyemi, President, Association of Artisans and Informal Workers, Chukwudi Oluoha, Executive Director, Coalition for Transparency and Accountability; and Friday Onuh, President, Independent Security Monitoring and Assessment Team.

Oyo Police Parade Kidnappers Terrorising Lagos Ibadan Expressway , recover Recover N7.5m Cash , AK-47 Rifls


The Oyo State Police Command has arrested ten suspected members of a kidnapping syndicate terrorising Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

Kidnappers have been attacking and kidnapping commuters travelling along the busy highway.

Prof. Adigun Agbaje, a former Deputy Vice-chancellor (academics) of the University of Ibadan (UI), two students of the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, and others were abducted on October 28 by kidnappers in military uniform. 

Parading the suspects at the Command headquarters, Eleyele, Ibadan, on Thursday, December 22, spokesman of the command, Adewale Osifeso, said the suspects attacked a team of policemen heeding a distress call to rescue abducted persons. An inspector was killed in the shootout with the kidnappers. 

Osifeso said the suspected kidnappers had whisked their victims away to an unknown destination through the thick forest along the expressway. They had also contacted relatives for ransom.

"In one of the most coordinated reconnaissance operations in the history of the Command, all operational, tactical and intelligence assets were collapsed and fused as one to attain the goal of the immediate rescue of the abductees unhurt and the apprehension of their abductors for prosecution," the spokesperson said. 

"The Oyo State Police Command, in a technological intelligence-aided operation, and with necessary support from Amotekun (the Oyo State Security Network) and other community partners, apprehended the duo of Babangida Buhari Awalu and Kabiru Aliyu.

"Both are commercial motorcyclists and couriers for the kidnap syndicate. They were arrested while retrieving ‘exchange money’ for other members of the syndicate around Ojoo Area, Ibadan.

"Further detailed and painstaking investigations led to the arrest of five members of the criminal gang.

"Three additional suspects gave their names as Adewuyi Sunday, Ayanwola Gbenga and Rafiu Abdulmajeed from the Gbugbu area of Kwara State and Ago-Are in Oyo State respectively.

"It was also discovered that monies received from the victims were moved into the bank accounts of these three additional suspects for onward distribution to other members of the kidnapping syndicate." 

Osifeso said that items recovered from the suspects included cash of N7.5 million, four AK-47 rifles, 75 AK-47 live ammunition, two pairs of military camouflage and one police beret.

Awolowo was investigated for Corruption under Coker Inquiry, later tried for Treason in a regular court, he never said it was becase he was a Christian or Yoruba. He defended himself, and when his lawyer was denied entry visa to Nigeria, and his first son, an acclaimed international lawyer,  was coming to the court to defend him, he died in a road accident on his way to the Court..Abraham Adesanya broke the news to Awo inside the Court, he expected Awo to start weeping but he did not.

Awo called the attention of the Judge to the development and asked for permission to defend himself and other Accused.

"Segun is dead already, we that are alive must defend ourselves so that we dont die too. This is treason, we must defend ourselves first before we mourn my beloved son"

LEADERS are made!

AWO was a true leader that served his people altruistically unlike the egocentric "LEADERS here in Nigeria...... You know them now.


```BALEWA never struggled to be Prime Minister. BELLO was qualified but gave it to BALEWA......

SHAGARI never wanted to be President.......but he ruled!

ABIOLA wanted it since 1983......he never got there even in 1993....We loved him but he did not get it.....

OBJ never lobbied for or desperate to be President. Falae wanted to since 1992 but he never got it.....OBJ did.

ODILI struggled and spent billions to get it....he never got it.....Yar'adua was not even physically strong enough yet he got it without spending his personal cash. ODILI got nothing!

JONATHAN has neither the cash nor the finesse to be President but he got it. He defeated desperate IBB and ATIKU in the primaries and BUHARI in the general!

BUHARI resigned to fate. He declared that he will not contest again. That is when GOD handpicked him and made him the President after HE had earlier watched him exhausting his personal energy and killing his desperation!

The time when JONATHAN had  no strength, he defeated mighty BUHARI....But when he had all the strength and money...he lost to a BUHARI who had given up!

Osinbajo was eating amala in his house when he was made the Vice President and eventually an acting president.

Leave all struggles for God to do them for you. Allow all the stacked money to be used for the benefit of the people. When it is your time God will surely spend your money as he has done to Balewa, Shagari, Obasanjo,Yaradua, Jonathan and Buhari/Osinbajo.

This is for our reflection, and to have it at the back of your mind that nothing is worth dying for.

Life is Vanity.```

6 Things Girls Like To Hear From Men To Feel Special


Women, being delicate creatures that they are, require extra care and love from their male counterparts.

They greatly appreciate even the smallest acts of kindness.

Here are six phrases that guys can use to make a woman feel like a queen:

First, her wits and brains

Girls like compliments on their appearance, but a compliment on their intellect goes a long way toward lifting their self-esteem.

2 She's been praised for her originality

Girls enjoy hearing that they are imaginative and inventive just as much as they do that they are smart. A lot of girls enjoy hearing this because it's a unique complement. Since they don't hear it very often, it has more of an impact on them.

Things that emphasize her uniqueness

As a general rule, it's a girl's highest aspiration to hear that she is special and unique. Even while we know there is no one else like us, we prefer to hear it from the men all the same.

You should reassure her that you find her unique and remind her how much you appreciate that.

There are certain features about her appearance that set her apart.

It's acceptable to tell a woman she looks pretty. Nonetheless, how you express it will have a significant impact on how she interprets it. Don't just tell her that her eyes are nice; tell her why you find them attractive.

5. How you truly feel

Women appreciate it when their partners are honest about their emotions. You may not like this one, but it does the job. What she really seeks is your empathetic response. She longs for you to open up to her and reveal your true feelings toward her.

Your optimism in the future - with her

Much of this is about convincing her that she has a place in your plans for the future. Therefore, she would like to hear your enthusiasm for your future together

 In a viral video, Titi Atiku, wife of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, is heard telling Nigerians to get their PVCs and vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the upcoming 2023 Elections.

On camera, Titi Atiku urged everyone to attend the event on February 25. Go obtain your PVC, fill it out, and cast your vote for the APC if you haven't already. As you can expect, several Nigerians have responded to Titi Atiku's comments. "The woman Don tire, create everything kuku scatter," one Twitter user named "Crest" reacted. She must hate her spouse very much; she probably doesn't want him to run this time.

1. Do not keep stupid friends all in the name of "No one knows tomorrow."  They may not allow you to see that tomorrow, so be very careful.

2. Marrying a lady with children doesn't mean you are a fool. A Fool is the irresponsible biological father who left his responsibility.

3. When you care too much, you will be treated as a fool, because they think you can't live without them. Therefore, be wise.

4.If you want to go far in life, train your heart to accept disappointments, even if it comes from those you trusted. Because every disappointment has a lesson.

5. A friend who becomes an enemy after a little misunderstanding has been an enemy all along. They were just pretending. So hold yourself.

6. My people, stop keeping clothes and shoes for special occasions, start wearing them when you can. Because nowadays, being alive alone is a special occasion.

7. If nobody is criticizing you, it means you are a nobody. No one throws stones at a fruitless tree. Continue to be fruitful.

8. If you want to become useless in life, I mean very useless, depend on people. Otherwise, Put your trust in God. It's only God that can never fail.

9. When you find out that, no one is correcting you, don't think you are perfect, you are just beyond repair.

10. Don't expect me to hate someone just because you hate them. Let me educate you, HATE is not a communicable disease. Suffer your hate virus alone and don't involve me.

11. Did you know that, one of the definitions of madness is the act of increasing your speed when you know that you have missed your direction? So wake up.

12.Life is a teacher, the more you live the more you learn


13. Attitude is everything in life. While you are moaning your lack of shoes, somebody without leg is celebrating that he is alive. Be grateful.

14. Happiness is free, don't expect someone to give you one, make yourself happy today.

15. It is not every progress that is worth celebrating. You may be progressing in error. Watch your back.


El-Rufia Reveals Why Buhari's Successor May Not Be Reelected For Second Term


Nasir El-Rufai 

The governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari's successor may not be reelected for a second term if he has the plan to remove fuel subsidies and solve foreign exchange challenges to reposition Nigeria's economy. 

El-Rufai said Nigeria needs a leader who will not care about his reelection and is ready to take painful but necessary decisions to reposition the economy. 

El-Rufai made this known during a panel discussion at the launch of the World Bank Nigeria Development Update and Country Economic Memorandum in Abuja on Thursday, December 15, 2022. 

The governor said the president who would reposition the economy must be ready to serve for one term if necessary. 

He said, "I think that Nigeria’s next president must be willing to take very difficult, immediate, and urgent decisions that will make the country go through maybe three to five years of pain and reverse this trajectory."

Makinde Stops Conferment Of Traditional Title On Atiku As PDP Both Menber Say Party Crisis To Be Resolved


 The administration of Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has reportedly influenced the suspension of a traditional titled expected to be bestowed on the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, by the Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Olalekan Balogun.

Naija News reports that the Olubadan was set to honour Atiku Abubakar with ‘Aree Akogun Of Ibadan Land.’

In a letter released by the monarch, the chieftaincy title, ‘Aree Akogun of Ibadan Land’ simply means ‘The President Of The Brave Ones Of Ibadanland”.

But in a new statement issued on December 12, the Palace announced the suspension of the ceremony.

It was gathered that the crisis rocking the PDP played a role in the suspension of a traditional titled expected to be bestowed on Atiku.

A palace source told Saturday Sun that the conferment of honorary title on Atiku was put on hold based on the decision of the Olubadan Advisory Council.

Another source said the Makinde-led government might have played a role in the hurried suspension over the lingering face-off of the G-5 governors, including Makinde, with Atiku.

Anambra State Governor, Professor Chukwuma Charles Soludo has inaugurated the Anambra State Oil and Gas Development Committee.

He performed the function at the Government House, Awka.

Barrister Uju Ifejika is the Chairperson, while the Permanent Secretary of the State Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources is the Secretary.

Vice Chairman of the Committee is Engr. Ikechukwu G. Okafor.

Other members include the Commissioner for Transport, Barr. Patricia Igwebike, Commissioner for Information, Sir Paul Nwosu, Mrs. Nkechi Obi, Prof K.K. Nwozor and Dr. Chris Ofokansi.

Others are Chief Tony Okwesa, Engr. Jideofor Chukwuemeka Etele, Barr. Anthony Ifeanya, Engr. Somtochukwu Mezie Okoye, Dr. Boniface Emengini, Emmanuel Nwabia,Mr. Francis Abuah Nwabueze and Barr. Anthony C. Madichie.

While pointing out that Anambra has joined other states as an oil and gas producing state, Governor Soludo stressed the necessity of having a formal committee because, according to him, 'to exploit oil and gas, one has to pass through the land.'

Speaking further, Governor Soludo said, "land in Anambra is a very scarce commodity, as such, special care should be given, to ensure that the right things are done."

"With the hostile environment we have, our own land is prone to erosion, flooding and degradation.

"Our landmass is shrinking. Anambra is the headquarters of gully erosion in the country for the remaining part of our land to be damaged by exploitation of land and mass.

"I am trying to situate the importance of this committee. Anambra is unique in the sense that we have no offshore. Everything is onshore, on the land people use for farming," Governor  Soludo said.

"It's a blessing that we have this huge resource domiciled in Anambra. 35.5 million cubic feet of gas which is about 18% of proven gas in Nigeria.

"I don't know of any other state that has a higher percentage. And so we can really say that Anambra is the gas capital of Nigeria.

"It's supposed to be a huge blessing but there's a threat as earlier enumerated.

"With a huge investment in the oil sector, we need to be guided because we don't want to repeat the same mistakes of the past.

"Being a late comer is a blessing in disguise because we wouldn't want to repeat the same mistakes of the past in Anambra," Governor Soludo noted.

"In this context, we decided to have a team of experts, those who know about oil and gas. I know little about oil and gas.

"The experts are here and I must thank all the members of this committee for accepting to serve Anambra.

"You are all very distinguished professionals in your various fields.

"Yours is to help us navigate through the uncharted waters in the state.

"Societies that have abundant resources end up being poor.

"Both the state, oil companies and communities are supposed to contribute," thec Governor stressed.

He continued; "you need to advise us as a government on major policies on exploitation and take inventory of what we have. What are the best ways to engage?

"We hope to engage the federal government and oil operators very actively on this, help us screen and promote investment opportunities in these sectors.

"We need to have responsible investors in place. We are not going to wait until the damage is done.

"On our part as the state government in next year's budget, we have set aside 5% for investment purposes. The oil companies have to do theirs.

"If anything, host communities need to become models.

"We need your advice and guidance. How do we get this thing in a sustainable and profitable manner."

Governor Soludo added; "the gas we have is quite a huge chunk.

"There should be no limit to the scope of your thinking and steps to be taken. 

"The Chairperson is one that doesn't take a no for an answer. I'm quite excited to have her on this team.

"We can only develop Anambra because we have the human resources and capital to take the state to the next level.

"If everybody can contribute a little bit of their time, resources and talent, we can make it anything we want to be.

"These are people paying to serve! God didn't make a mistake to make you an 'onye Anambra'.

"On the last day, God will ask how you made this state better," Soludo concluded.

Earlier, the Commissioner for Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Barr. Anthony Ifeanya disclosed that Anambra has 13 blocks/concessions within its blocks namely; OPL 228, OPL 280, OPL 901 to 907, OPL 914, OPL 915 & 916 (Operated by Orient Oil Resources), and OPL 91.

He noted that activities in the OPL have not helped because it is believed that Anambra basin is mostly gas and since there's no gas infrastructure in the SouthEast, the urge to explore and exploit the gas resources isn't there.

"Global warming and climate volatility are now existential threats to humanity and the environment. The world needs to accelerate efforts to achieve net-zero and mitigate global warming effects in Africa's climate because people and agriculture will suffer in the coming years," he said.

While stating that oil remains the main driver for Nigeria's development, Commissioner Ifeanya maintained that the Anambra basin holds an estimated gas reserve of over 30TCF and 1.3 billion barrels.

In a vote of thanks, Chairman of the committee, Barr. Uju Ifejika, expressed happiness about the rare privilege of being called to serve the people, more importantly, in a field where she has invested 36 years of her life.

"Within that period, I did a lot of things with my team. We have the upstream, downstream and midstream.

"In terms of knowledge base, we can come up with something collectively.

"Before we do anything, we will have to meet after this Inauguration and for the records, I am a workaholic," she pointed out.

"The first thing is to convert OML and OPL. We have to get that done, if not, we will lose it.

"We will have workshops, engage oil companies, communities so they tell us what project they want.

"There will be a board from the Communities and we have to do it correctly.

"Looking at the gas we have, we need gas gathering infrastructure and do an appraisal to actually know what we have which shall be done by a reputable international and research evaluation company.

"With the current transition from fossil oil to green energy, nobody will look at you.

"Fossil fuel will still remain relevant but we need to start somewhere," she said.

"The basic things we will look at is the ease of doing these things.

"If you make the investor feel comfortable, he will come in and bring other investors. The Government must help us.

"It must be a seamless and continuous process if we want to go into it.

"We need the Governor to give us the needed support in certain approvals to make the job easier for the committee and enable us leave a legacy the people will be proud of," she pleaded.

Chief of Staff, Mr Ernest Ezeajughi, Head of Service, Barr. Theodora Igwegbe, Former Special Adviser on Political Matters, Barr. Ifeatu Obiokoye, among others, also attended the event.

PDP Crisis Governor Tambuwal R


 Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto has affirmed that the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is making concerted efforts to unite its ranks and all its aggrieved members before the 2023 general elections, The Punch reports.

Tambuwal who met with Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue on Sunday, December 11, said the PDP will soon bring on board Governor Nyesom Wike and Integrity Group members.

The Sokoto governor who is the PDP's campaign council's director-general made his disclosure to journalists after his meeting with Ortom.

Speaking on his talk with Ortom, Tambuwal said: “We have had time to converse and engage on what is happening in our party. He is a leader as of right in this party when you look at his political trajectory, history and where he is today. He holds a very important position.

“I have said this before and about three months ago, that internal party wranglings are normal and what we have been having is not a war of attrition but political disagreement. We, even in our families have reasons to disagree, agree and some other times when you have such disagreement and you come back together, you bond more stronger and wax stronger.

“So, it’s work in progress and we have met several times but we are working to bring everybody together to work for this party. That is the mission of my being here in Makurdi."

Meanwhile, Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state has said all hope is not lost in the bid to resolve the crisis rocking the PDP ahead of the forthcoming 2023 general election.

Speaking on who the G5- Governors would support for the Presidential election, Makinde expressed hope that some form of alignment would be reached before the election, The Nation reported.

Speaking further, Governor Makinde said his G5 colleagues, including Nyesome Wike (Rivers), Samuel Ortom (Benue), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia) and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), are still in talks with the party leadership.

The governor added that some demands have also been placed before the PDP leadership.

Governor Makinde said it was too early to determine the presidential candidate to support since talks are still ongoing with the party’s national leadership and stakeholders.

He said: “It is not time. We are still talking. We have made some demands on the party. One day is a long time in politics. So, we are still talking and we are hopeful that some form of alignment will be reached at the end of the day.”

Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, Catholic Priest and Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, has accused the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma of organizing the killing of Imo State residents


Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, Catholic Priest and Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, has accused the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma of organizing the killing of Imo State residents

Mbaka said although he does not support terrorism, he stands against killing and labeling innocent youths of the country as ‘terrorists’.

He opined that the recent jail break in Imo State could be God’s way of releasing his people from prison.

Mbaka also wondered why the killing of a top commander of the Eastern Security Network, ESN, Ikonso Don was being celebrated.

The Cleric further warned the leaders to kill poverty, unemployment and insecurity, because God is angry with them, adding that those advising Uzodinma have killed him while he is still alive.

”I can never support terrorism, neither will I allow you to brand our children terrorists when they are not. If some people broke the prison in Owerri, if you caught them, arrest, interrogate them, it may be possible that no human being broke into that prison, it may be jailbreak from God.

”It happened in Acts of Apostle chapters 5. There was no jailbreak and nobody was arrested. God can set the prisoners free.

”For people to go around and kill our young men without trying them is evil. I’m just warning our Governors. Nigerians are dying like rats and nobody cares; God is angry with leaders, from Buhari to the last. You have failed God.

”Hope Uzodinma who came here and put his hand on this altar and swore he will protect the lives of Imolites is now organizing the killing of Imolites and he wants me to keep quiet?

”I was keeping quiet until the blood of my brother was shed. Never! Whoever will support that will suffer. How Is it difficult for the military, police and DSS to arrest one person? What if the person you killed is innocent of what he is accused of?

“You killed Ikonso and you are parading his body as if you have done anything. Go and kill poverty, unemployment, insecurity, you know how to kill, wicked people. God’s anger is on. No prophet will be spared if you keep quiet about what is happening in the country. If the leaders do not stop what is going on, it will stop them.”

He urged Nigerians to stop misquoting him because he is just a messenger of God and maintained that Buhari does not call him and he does not call Buhari.

”They said I was the one that prayed for Hope Uzodinma. Hope Uzodinma was like a vision that came to me, how am I involved in it? The message from God just passed through me, I don’t know his political story. Till today someone (Uzodinma) who became Governor has not come to give thanks to God here. I know If he is receiving advice from this sanctuary he will not be messing up. Those advising Uzodinma has killed him while he is still alive.”

Mbaka also prayed that God will bless IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

According to him, it is not wrong for someone to have courage and say that his people are being maltreated.

”I want you to know that up till today, I don’t know who is Nnamdi Kanu, I have never seen him face to face but wherever he is may God bless him. It is not a bad thing if someone has risen up to shout that his brothers are suffering, May the lord bless his courage.

”What is happening in this country is heartbreaking, tears shedding, nerve-racking and mind-blowing. Can our security agent and leaders account for us, how many people have died under one week or month? Students being kidnapped from the university and there is a leadership. It is either they are involved in it or they should stop or what is happening will stop them. Buhari, Hope and those who want to fight me, remember there was a time God told me to support you people now God has told me to withdraw and prophesy against you,” he added.
