THANK YOU, NDI ABAMBRA

The past weeks have been as exhilarating as it is daunting. The feeling so far generated by our campaign across the length and breadth of the State is, in all honesty, nothing short of a reassurance that our people are indeed seeking for a fresh air of progressive leadership.

I sincerely want to express unreserved appreciation to the Anambra electorates, who have to me become the best examples of an enlightened electorate. The reception across the 326 wards was warm, the expectations high and the resolve total.

I have realised that the sentiments peddled across most media spaces do not mirror the reality of our enormous grassroot support base. This is another reflection of the high moral rectitude and meticulousness of the Anambra voter who is not swayed by devious propaganda.

Yesterday was the last day for campaigns according to the laws guiding this process. As such, I  have dismantled all my campaign machineries accordingly. However, it is of utmost importance that I express this appreciation to my supporters and team for the good works thus far. 

We have worked and the harvest cannot be any less. As we anticipate the  result of our efforts, we must not fail to be actively involved in the all important business of tomorrow.

I therefore urge all my supporters to come out en masse to exercise their franchise. I have avowed to a peaceful process devoid of intimidation and malpractices, and urge my supporters to do same.

We are unwavering in our conviction that victory shall be ours to celebrate.

Thank you immensely and God Bless us all.


Signed
Hon. Dr Tony Nwoye , MFR.‎

SHOCKING: Labour Party NWC Dispels Alleged INEC Recognition of Expelled and indicted Former Chairman Abdululkadir Abdulsalam

The crisis that has continuously ro‎cked the leadership of Labour party f‎ollowing the convention held on the 3rd of October 2017 under the watch of the party's NWC has taken a new twist as the indicted and expelled former chairman Abdulkadir Abdulsalam is allegedly still parading himself as the National chairm‎an.  This was revealed according to certain publication where Abdulsalam had insisted he remains the national chairman of the party, stressing that no group had power to remove him. The publication accredited to him as been recognised by INEC which according to the party's constitutionally set up NWC discloses that such is not only false but outrightly misleading.

‎It could be recalled that panel of the National Working Committee of Labour Party set up to investigate former chairman Abdulkadir Abdulsalam over allegations of criminal conspiracy, breach of trust and financial misappropriation to the tune of about N1.3billion naira generated during the last General election found him culpable of the offences as revealed by the Police interim investigation reports alongside his cohorts. Chief Calistus Okafor, Deputy National Chairman (Sou‎th) and 8 others made the complaints which was investigated and confirmed that Abdulsalam was indicted and removed as the National Chairman as approved by the party's hierachy

Claims attributed to DailyTrust that Chief Press Secretary to INEC Chairman Mr Rotimi Lawrence Oyekanmi‎ said that the commission recognises the expelled former chairman as the authentic Chairman as against the constitutionally endorsed and elected Chairman Dr. Mike Omotosho is erroneous as INEC commission does not conduct election for the party rather the commission accepts candidate(s) approved by the party.  National Publicity Secretary of the Dr Omotosho, the Labour party new and authentic National Chairman who served in similar capacity with the removed former National Chairman Abdulsalam, Barrister Ebere Ifendu, told cross section of journalists that she is not aware of such recognition by INEC.
"I am not aware of any such recognition by INEC. We had a successful convention on October 3rd and INEC witnessed it. The only report is an interim report by the police indicting Salam (Abdulsalam) on the criminal allegations against him," she said.

SHOCKING: John Fashanu Leads England Stars ‎To Explore The Legalisation Of Marijuana As He Says No To Drugs! ‎(photos)

As the debate continues on the legalisation of Marijuana in the States, England biggest TV stars ‎‎led by John Fashanu, ‎Pam St Clement, Linda Robson and Christopher Biggins explore the use of marijuana in 7 different states in a month for both medical and recreational purposes. 

The England celebrities visited‎ the states in America which have legalised marijuana, for a series addressing the hugely controversial debate over whether the drug should be allowed in Britain.‎‎ The series was filmed so to provide viewers with a personal insight into the impact of marijuana‎ as they met people who have experienced the pros and cons of marijuana from patients with ‎Medical conditions‎.

As the tour to ascertain if the legalisation of Marijuana is right or wrong in America, the stars visited the Sisters of the Valley.
Most nuns in the convent devote themselves to prayer and spiritual contemplation, but you might say the Sisters of the Valley have fallen into bad habits – as they spend their days tending and smoking marijuana. This bizarre order in the quiet country town of Merced in California is just one of the extraordinary stops on the route of the celebrities in the new ITV show Gone To Pot.

‎‎Pro-legalisation campaigners point to its supposed medical benefits – as do the Sisters of the Valley, who make oils, salves and soaps from the drug they describe as a 'gift from God' and which they claim provides relief from the symptoms of arthritis, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis. ‎At the Sisters of the Valley convent, the ITV stars were greeted by the nuns performing a welcoming ritual of holding bunches of burning sage billowing with smoke. 
The nuns harvest marijuana plants and heat them with coconut oil for three hours to produce their tinctures.

‎In California, it has been legal for 21 years to purchase marijuana for medicinal purposes and the state voted last year for recreational use to be legalised too.‎ Debates for the controversial drug legality by the celebrities made them take turns to experience the effect after usage or smoked. Biggins and Pam St Clement – who played Pat Butcher in EastEnders – began their three-week journey in San Francisco, California‎.

‎‎Biggins, 68, who suffers pain in his hip and back, bought an oil containing CBD and he too found it seemed to work. 
He said: 'Having taken the medical marijuana and rubbed it on to my thighs and around my knee area, I was amazed how when I went for my nightly pee how quickly I got out of bed.'

But Biggins had a very different experience when the stars visited the home of 94-year-old chef Nonna Marijuana, who has earned renown for her cooking using marijuana-infused butter. 

They enjoyed a meal in which almost every dish – including gnocchi, ratatouille and even ice cream – was laced with marijuana. Biggins, who suffers from asthma and never smokes, devoured the dishes with delight but hours afterwards began to feel unwell. ‎Eventually, he became violently sick, vomiting a total of 25 times over an agonising few hours.

The ITV stars also ‎met people who have been running marijuana business and met police who experience some of the less positive aspect of marijuana. ‎Former footballer John Fashanu, 55, has never taken drugs or drunk alcohol. He agreed to being given a massage using CBD oil by one of the nuns to help with his arthritic knees, but complained it had left him smelling like a 'junkie' . The experience to him was negative which rubbishes the legalisation of Marijuana. To him, is a drug which is not good and with damaging side effects. 

According to the Legendary Billionaire sports Ambassador, John Fashanu " I say no to drugs because the resultant effect from our debate and research is unhealthy and obviously the cons supersedes the pros " ....‎"Is it good or is it Bad ????? Anyway let's see what its all about in the UK. Can I remind you marijuana is illegal in Nigeria"  Big Fash

Dr. Mike Omotosho; National Chairman of Labour Party Releases Statement on The Rescue Of His Kidnapped Mother

Let me on behalf of the entire Omotosho clan use this opportunity to say a big thank you to everyone who in one way or another stood with us during the almost 120 hour ordeal. 
We also appreciate the Nigerian security forces and the media for the effective and timely aid. We appreciate all your calls and prayers and pray that none of you ever have to experience such unpleasantness. 
May the Lord uproot this evil scourge in our society. 

My mom is well and was not harmed in any way, for that we are eternally grateful.

The entire episode however reiterate my personal belief in an inclusive society where all our minds are focused on the same vision of greatness. Where all our hands are on deck to move the country forward and protect her interests.  
The time has indeed come to seriously commence the moral education of our youths who have incidentally become pawns in this tragic piece of our historical narrative.  But we must first change their experience and gainfully engage them. 

It is indeed not time to cast aspersions or play the blame game for where we have found ourselves as a nation. 
Our current national reality is totally antithetical to what we had back in the days when each of us was our brothers' keepers regardless of religious or political affiliations and ethnicity. 
So we must engage  to redefine that reality and give ourselves a different experience so we can all do better.  
It is time for us to be collectively accountable  for the security, peace and progress of Nigeria. 
It is time to sheath our swords of personal interest, greed and ethnicity,  with the understanding that in war, no one comes out unscathed. It is time for my fellow Nigerians to be passionate about rebuilding our ruins. 

My family and I are grateful to the Lord for this miraculous return of our mother, grandmother and great grandmother. 

This has renewed our vigor in this battle to continue to play our part.  We therefore seek your commitment to join hands with us to bring back the Nigeria where Peace and justice truly reigns. A Nigeria that provides Equal Opportunities and Social Justice.
God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria
