They met the President under the auspices of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, CBCN, also told the President that he came into power under the goodwill of Nigerians but that the goodwill had been eroded as a result of the failure of government to tackle the myriads of problems facing the nation.

The CBCN in the address delivered by its President, Most Rev. Dr. Ignatius Ayau Kaigama who is the Archbishop of Jos, also told the President that the heightening clamour for restructuring of the country, agitation for session among other things was as a result of disregard for the principal of federal character by the government.

Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs

A popular politician and business tycoon, Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs has called on women to emulate the footsteps of the wife of the Former Governor of Rivers State, Dame Judith Amaechi for impacting greatly on youths in the Niger Delta region without being funded by anyone.

He also applauded women for their support to make men great.

Antonio Conte’s days at Stamford Bridge are numbered

It was as performances can be from Chelsea as the reigning champions of the English Premier League suffered their second heavy defeat in a week against a lower opposition.
To the chagrin of Chelsea fans, ‘The Blues’ players seemed to have downed tools, in a manner reminiscent of the second spell of the Jose Mourinho days in charge of the club. Watford relished the chance of playing against Chelsea on monday night, at a time when the Chelsea board and manager Antonio Conte are having a not so secret ego war and at the end of a very one-sided game,  Watford were deserved 4-1 winners.
The Blues had Tiemoue Bakayoko sent off inside half an hour before Troy Deeney scored a penalty in the closing stages of the first half, but Chelsea stayed in the contest and equalised through a magnificent Eden Hazard goal in the 82nd minute.
The visitors were not level for long, however, as Watford scored three times in seven minutes through Daryl Janmaat, Gerard Deulofeu and Roberto Pereyra to secure victory for new head coach Javi Gracia.

Chairman of the Civil Liberty Organizations CLOs in Bayelsa state, Chief Nengi James, has opined that those parading themselves as freedom fighters in the oil-rich Niger Delta region were nothing but self seeking capitalists.
The rights activist, who is also the founder of the Nengi James Foundation, stated this while receiving an award of selfless service from the Achievers Farm Group in Yenagoa, Bayelsa state along side three other prominent Bayelsans.
The other awardees include: business mogul and chairman of Ayala Group of Companies, Chief Robert Enogha, former Commissioner for Science and Technology, Mr. Ndutimi Komonibo and one of the founders of Ijaw Youth Council, Timi Ogoriba.
Fielding questions from newsmen after the event, Nengi said those who carried arms to enrich themselves under the guise of fighting a common course of the Niger Delta people should not be honoured.
“I am happy that today l am  being honoured not because I am financially buoyant but because l share the little I have with the needy, the less privileged and the downtrodden.
“We need selfless leaders, those who have contributed to the development of the Niger Delta, to be recognized and honoured just as the Achievers Group has done today.
“We cannot continue to honour mediocrity. You cannot have mansions everywhere and claim to be freedom fighters. You cannot be a capitalist and claim to be freedom fighter while those you claim to be fighting for are wallowing in perpetual penury.
” What development have they attracted to the region? Freedom fighters are those who make sacrifices for humanity. How many houses have they built for their people? How much effort have they made to provide safe drinking water for the people?”, he questioned.

Bayelsans To Enjoy 24-Hour Power Supply From Sept. 21st

By correspondent John Odeh.

If the promise made by the Ministry of Power is anything to go by, then residents of Bayelsa state would begin to experience 24-hour power supply starting from September 21, 2018.

An official of the Ministry and Managing Director of the Bayelsa State Electricity Company, Engr Olice Kemenanabo disclosed this during the inter-ministerial briefings to mark Governor Seriake Dickson’s six years in office.
It could be recalled that a previous administration in the state led by former Governor Timipre Sylva made a similar promise that Bayelsans were going to be the first state to enjoy uninterupted power supply but failed to keep his word.
Engr. Kemenanabo said efforts were being made towards achieving the target which include upgrading of existing transmission stations from  40 to 90 megawatts as well as ensuring that the second mobile transformer functions optimally.
“We have upgraded from 40 to 90 MVA, we also want to  work on the second mobile transmission station that will serve the eastern part of the state so that we can dedicate the 90 MVA to the western and  central parts of the state. By so doing, the constraints of the sector would be a thing of the past”, he said.
On the scorecard of the Ministry of Power for the past six years, the Commissioner, Chief Partner Jim-Ogbolo said 48 projects were awarded out of which 23 had been completed while 25 were ongoing.
Some of the achievements of the Ministry, he said, include: construction of a new 33KVA  transmission line from Ogbia to Nembe, construction of 33KVA line from Ikebiri to Angiama and upgrading of electricity supply in Akepelai community.
