Peterside, who spoke in Lagos on the sidelines of Friends of Gulf of Guinea Conference, organised by the Italian government in collaboration with the Nigerian Navy, said that the SARS officers in Rivers State were doing well.
According to him, “Rivers State is number one in high profile crimes of murder, kidnapping and robbery and the state government may have become uncomfortable because of its inability to influence and control the police. Some people are obviously benefiting from the criminal activities that SARS officers stand against. I support the good work of SARS and I wish the agency could be re-organized and strengthened to function better.” Continue reading

“This training is to remind health workers; nurses, doctors, that if they come together, patients living with diabetes will receive optimum care. If you want patients living with diabetes to do well, you have to function as a team. The first way to prevent diabetes is information, everybody needs to be aware of the risk factors and how you help in preventing them. Of course, simple things like having an ideal body weight, living a very active life style through exercise, going for medical check-up regularly. For someone with high risks of diabetes, there are drugs you can take to delay the onset of diabetes. There are surgeries that actually reduce the stomach capacity and the surgeries will help in preventing diabetes. But remember that prevention starts from a very early age, exercising also go a long way in preventing diabetes. Causes of diabetes are four types. A disease damages the organ that produces the Insulin, in others, it has to do with the chemical Insulin not working well in the body, and this is common in middle age people.

Governor Wike

The report that the Governor of Rivers State, Chief Nyesom Wike, spent a whopping N15.5 billion of Rivers State resources to sponsor Saturday’s Elective National Convention of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and install his lackey, Prince Uche Secondus, as the new National Chairman of the party came to us as a political party as shocking, unfortunate, unacceptable and condemnable. Other States and interest groups may find this as historical but those of us from Rivers State, this is a wicked ploy to siphon and waste our hard earned funds for a venture that will not benefit our State in any way.

The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) made the condemnation in a statement issued on Monday in the state capital, Port Harcourt. Let us reiterate that, “We are truly miffed and embarrassed about the damning report reaching us indicating that Governor Wike wasted a whopping sum of N15.5 billion of Rivers State funds to finance the candidature of his stooge, Prince Uche Secondus, for the office of the National Chairman of PDP,” the party said in the statement signed by the State Chairman, Chief (Dr.) Davies Ibiamu Ikanya.
