Wakirike Unity Concert set to electrify Port Harcourt city with songs

Published by:

Our reporter met with one of the members of the concert publicity team organising the Wakirike Unity concert, Mr. Lamuel Biambo. A lot of insight about the preparation for the event on December 16th 2017 was disclosed.

What is the purpose of the Wakirike concert and what gave rise to it?

Wakirike Unity Concert is to bring together the Wakirike people of the Niger Delta area of Nigeria, primarily resident in Okrika, Ogu/Bolo and Port Harcourt Local Government Areas of River State, along with other residents of the garden city, Port Harcourt and beyond.

More so, Wakirike Development Coalition was established in Baltimore, Maryland on 29 May 2010 with a mission, “to lift our people out of poverty on the road to prosperity one family at a time.” Our first public activity in Port Harcourt was in December, 2013 when we organised a two-day Wakirike Development Summit. Since then, we have been carrying out activities quietly and we felt it was time to engage the Wakirike public again.

Our people have in the recent past been talked about for all the wrong reasons such as militancy and lawlessness. Thankfully, life has returned to normalcy. As a development organization, we felt it was important to project the positive things about the Wakirike clan. Coming together did not take much discussion before we decided to organize a music concert. We are gifted with exceptionally talented gospel, classical and folklore singers. More importantly, music connects people in ways no other medium can.  Popular musician Bono said music can change the world and Martin Luther described it as the greatest treasure after the word of God. The good book is also full of quotes on music, for example, “Sing praises to God, sing praises; Sing praises to our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth.” Psalm 47:6&7.

What does the concert seek to achieve and what are the listed benefits?

The main goal of the concert as the name implies is to foster unity among the choristers, choirmasters, churches and all Wakirike communities, as every Wakirike church and community is represented in the Unity Choir. Our prayer is that this powerful show of unity will speak where words fail and unite various factions in religion, politics and communities. We also hope to extend this unity to our immediate neighbours – the Ikwerres, Elemes, Ogonis, Ibanis, Kalabaris and by extension the entire Rivers State, the Ijaw Nation and our beloved country. If the people are united, we can command the Lord’s blessings and we can expect peace and development in our land.

The rise of murderous women over alleged suspicion of infidelity of their spouses has got a lot of people talking. The keys acts surrounding these killings have shown that these men never notice when it is time to leave the marriage, only to fall to the cruel hands of their attackers.

Must we always go physical with people, or even spiritual if we feel hurt or offended by a loved one? I thought we have it in our spiritual books that vengeance is of God. These days, it is no longer so, as some hot tempered women are quick to seek justice on their own terms. This has left a scourge of murderous women in our society.

I ran into some hilarious suggestions on how to reduce the rate of love related killings.
Try to develop the habit of deleting messages as you read because it will save you from untimely death.
Wives should be medically examined routinely to assess if they are mentally stable.
Use your mother’s name in place of saving your girl friend’s number in your phone.
Ensure you change your phone password regularly. Continue reading
