I wish to invite all sons and daughters of our great Ijaw Nation, to come out enmass and be a witness to the celebration of our cultural heritage and revival of a long forgotten religious practice.

On Wednesday 20th, February, will mark a new beginning in the chapters of Ijaw cultural history, it is a day where our ancestors and divine guardians will assemble themselves within our midst.

I urge every Ijaw son to take advantage of this event, to purify, sanctify and consecrate themselves with the full armour of the divine presence, especially as elections will be held three days after.

This epoch making event is titled “Amada-suo” festival, for information, the “Amada-suo” is a very powerful goddess of fertility and divine protection, as an Oru(Divine being), it can be categorised under what we know as “SERAPHIMS” in Christiandom, as the name implies ‘Amada-suo’, interpreting in English as “that which protects and defends the town”.

The “Amada-suo” was one of those deities used in the famous British-Akassa war, several occasions it has proven it potency, in addition, we will be having the famous ‘OSOWEI’ festival, Osowei is a deity of the forest, the keeper, guardian and Kings of all forest (Bounanawei).

The event will be presided over by Priest Eneyi alias Akpakirikpon, a Prophet, seer and a former high priest of the then MEND days, precisely at Boyloaf Barrack, up to the disarmament stage.

Amada-suo is the Supreme deity of the Agadas known as Ekpetiama people, history speak of Agada as a fearless warrior, the Amada-suo, has been a major tool for fearlessly defending the lands, people and terrain of Ijaws.

This event will hold at AVEN community, in Patani LGA, Delta state, a migrant town of Bumoundi people in Ekpetiama kingdom in present day Bayelsa.

I Interviewed 3 pure water sellers and according to them: sometimes, it takes about 6 hours to sell 20 sachets of water which amounts to a total of N200 which is even less than a dollar now.
From the N200, the profit is only about N40 as the pure water sellers have to pay the wholesalers their money back as well as cover the price for ice block which was used to cool the water.

The long and short of it is that some of them make only N40 in 6 hours of hustling under the hot sun, risking their lives on express roads.

As if that isn’t bad enough, when passengers and drivers reach the traffic stops, they prefer to dash N20, N50 or even N100 to beggars and fake sufferers who sometimes make about N1,500 a day doing nothing but begging, leaving them richer, luckier and safer than the pure water sellers who are young entrepreneurs serving the larger community with their trade, and trying to make ends meet.

So when next you are at a traffic stop, please:

1. Dash the pure water seller instead
2. Buy pure water to patronise them and if the change is (N10, or even N20, you can leave it with them)
3. Say something nice to them. Greet them, encourage them.
4. Slow down, don’t knock them down.
5. Even if you wont buy the pure water, if they ask you to buy, rather than ignoring them and facing front as if they are not humans, you can look at them, smile and say “Thank you”
Let’s do it because we can do it, your #10,#20 or #50 as the case maybe can go a long way to them. God bless you as you do this.

BREAKING NEWS!!! There is no Voting for the internally displaced persons in Niger State – INEC

By Hannah Tsado (FPR)

The hopes of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Niger State to participate in the forth coming elections has been dashed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the Niger State Electoral Commissioner (REC), Prof. Sam Egwu, has said there is no voting for the IDPs.

This is just as no fewer than 50 women would be contesting in the forthcoming elections in the state.

Prof. Egwu, while addressing Journalists Today on the preparations so far made by the commission for the conduct of the polls, said: “There will be no voting for IDPs in Niger, there is no official IDP camp in Niger known to Niger INEC. We do not have preparation for IDPs voting.”

Contrary to the claim by the REC, there were thousands of IDPs in Zungeru, Wushishi Local Government and in Gulu in the Lapai Local Government area.
The IDPs were displaced from their ancestral homes by the 2018 flood, while some of those in Gulu relocated to the town following insurgency in Benue State.

Prof. Egwu said initially, INEC penciled eight states where there were IDPs but said that the number had increased to 16 states. He did not reveal the states.
He disclosed that out of the approximately 455 people contesting the March 2019 election in the state, only 50 are women.
Giving the breakdown, Prof Egwu said there are two female candidates in the governorship race out of 31 contenders, seven others are deputy governorship candidates, while four women out of 37 are contesting for the senatorial seats.

Out of the 126 candidates vieing for the House of Representatives seats, nine of them are women just as only 28 women are in the race for the 27 House of Assembly seats out of a total of 361 candidates, Egwu declared.
He said of the 2,390,000 eligible voters in the state, 2,167,788 collected their PVCs, adding that: “We expect all these people to vote in all the elections.”

The REC said to ensure all eligible voters cast their ballots during elections, there was need for the country to legalise early voting.
“There is need for early voting so that some category of people will be able to vote two or three days before election but first we need to trust the electoral body,” he said.
Egwu also said that priority would be given to the physically challenged people and pregnant women on election day even as the commission has domesticated the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed with the National Union of Road Transport Employers Association and the National Union of Road Transport Workers for the transportation of election materials.
