Idris Ahmed, Lokoja.

Kogi state Deputy Governor, Chief Edward Onoja, has been appointed as the Patron of the Igala National Prayer Conference (INPC), on Sunday at the “Garden of the Lord’s Prayer Camp”, Ojuwo Anyigba, Kogi state, where the annual Carol was held.

Chief Onoja who expressed gratitude to God and the prayer camp for finding him worthy of being its patron and in his testimony gave assurances of his continuous belief and faith in God.

He disclosed that, the convener of the Conference sent a text message to him on the eve of the election (15th of November), predicting how God has given the APC victory in the elections which would be announced 24 hours later, and it came to pass.

While preaching at the Church, Chief Onoja touched on three triage (3) mysteries of the scriptures: Prayer, death and the name of Jesus, pointing out that God almighty did not teach men how to heal, perform miracles, bless or fast, but he taught men how to pray.

The Deputy Governor explained that of all these works, prayer is the ultimate and master key that unlocks every form of request and gridlock in life.

On the mystery of death, Onoja said Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ yearly, however, Jesus came to die for mankind to gain respite from eternal damnation.

He further disclosed that scientific tracking has shown that 6,300 deaths are recorded globally per hour, while in the same hour, about 15,000 births are also recorded, which shows a 125% increase of birth rate over death rate per hour.

“It means death in itself is not bad because Jesus had to die to save mankind from eternal death.” He therefore admonished Christians to focus more on the significance of death, rather than death in itself.

The third mystery he spoke on was that of the Power in the name of Jesu, stressing that ” for many people who encounter the demonic invasion of incubus what is known in Igala as “Achibu”, other efforts may not prevail as at the point of been held hostage, but any Christian who musters the courage to mention the name of Jesus, the demons flee immediately; thus, the name of Jesus is the most powerful name in the world which should not be taken for granted.”

The covener of the prayer Conference, Dr. Moses Abuh said the appointment of Chief Onoja as a Patron is in recognition of his tireless contribution to the propagation of the gospel across Igala land and in Kogi state at large as instructed by God almighty who called him to the INPC project.

Some key followers of Sen Ishaku Abbo of Adamawa North District have declared a shifting of loyalty to Governor Ahmadu Fintiri.

Although, Abbo is in the same Peoples Democratic Party ((PDP) with the state governor, Abbo has been a critic of both the party and the governor, waging an unending battle against both.

In an action indicating disaffection against him by some within his own support base on Friday, however, many among his supporters visited Governor Fintiri, pledging their loyalty to him.

Members of the delegation to the Government House in Yola, led by Abbo Support Group’s former Coordinator, Peter Ishaya Kwache, told Fintiri that he now had their “complete shift of loyalty”.

Mr. Kwache said they were members of the PDP, who worked to ensure the success of all candidates of the party in the 2019 general election, particularly Abbo, but that they had for a while been at a loss about Abbo’s relentless criticism of the party and the government led by Fintiri.

The Member representing Ughelli North, Ughelli South and Udu federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon. Francis Waive, has described the Water Resources Bill as a Northern agenda to tighten the noose on the Southern part of the country.

Hon Waive who is a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC from Delta State in a statement, weekend while expressing concerns on the bill, explained that though some provisions in the bill are welcoming and warm, because of the nature of governance and the tendencies to misuse powers in the country, “we cannot at this point in time properly handle this kind of a law without causing more harm than good.”

According to him, “One will be tempted to ask, what is the intention behind this law? Is it really for the general good of the Nigerian people as it states? How well has the various natural resources been managed for the general good?”

Speaking further, he said: “The oil from the Niger Delta region has not positively impacted the life of the people from the Niger Delta and the one who bears the impact of the exploration activities.

“The various River Basins which are currently under the control of the government, has not been properly managed; instead it has been grossly politicized, how then can the government manage and control all the water bodies in the country.

“According to public opinion this law is a Northern agenda to further tighten the noose on the South, because obviously the majority of the states from the middle belt down south are surrounded by water. There is also a high resemblance of intentions of some provisions of this act with that of the unsuccessful RUGA bill.

“In my opinion, the bill is of no immediate benefit to the generality of the populace at this point in time, plus we have not developed enough as a country to be able to properly manage all the resources we have to now begin to look at water. Water is the least of our problems as a country.”
