YOUTH HOUSE MESSAGE OF THE WEEK!!!

“ORGANIS”ACTION”: SECRET TO VICTORY!!!

FIRST STEP TO DEFEAT IS “DISORGANIZ” ACTION; DISORGANIZATION!!!

AS SIMPLE AS THE WORD “ORGANIZE” MAY SOUND, IT HOLDS THE KEY TO VICTORY AND SUCCESS IN ANY FIELD OR ENDEAVOUR IN LIFE. NO WONDER EVERY STRUCTURE, BE IT BUSINESS, GOVERNMENT, RELIGIOUS OR SOCIAL, ARE REFERRED TO AS “ORGANISATIONS”, BECAUSE THE BASIC REQUIREMENT OF PLANNING OR STRATEGIZING IS TO FIRST ORGANISE YOURSELF AND ENVIRONMENT!!!

EVEN KNOWLEDGE IS NOT POWER AS POPULARLY SAID. INSTEAD IT IS “ORGANISED KNOWLEDGE” THAT IS POWER!!! ONE MAY HAVE ALL THE KNOWLEDGE IN THE WORLD, BUT IF NOT ORGANISED TOWARDS A SPECIFIC GOAL, THEY BECOME USELESS ACADEMIC PROPERTY.

EVEN THE STRONGEST AND MOST SKILLFUL TEAM OR SPORTSMAN CAN BE DEFEATED BY A LESSER OR WEAKER SIDE, IF DISORGANIZED!!!

ONE CAN BE DISORGANISED IN THOUGHTS, WORDS OR ACTIONS. WHEN ONE IS DISORGANISED, IT SHOWS IN ONES LOOKS AND ENVIRONMENT.

ONE MAJOR INDICATOR OF DISORGANIZATION IS STRESS AND UNTIDINESS!!! YOU LOSE FOCUS AND BECOME RANDOM IN ACTION AND THINKING!!! THE FIRST ATTACK STRATEGY OF AN ENEMY IS TO DISORGANIZE YOU.

LESSON: NO MATTER THE PRESSURE OR PROVOCATIONS AROUND YOU, FIGHT TO STAY ORGANISED AND CALCULATED IN THOUGHTS, WORDS AND ACTIONS. BY SO DOING, YOU OVERCOME ALL OBSTACLES, PRESSURE AND OPPOSITIONS IN LIFE!!!

FROM THE DESK OF THE BOY-BOY (HOUSE BOY) OF THE YOUTH.

…Ear,…eye,… mouth of young people.

Kaduna-Abuja Highway
BREAKING: Happening Now, Massive Travellers Abducted In Kaduna-Abuja Highway

An eyewitness travelling along the route had released a short video showing two abandoned vehicles while insinuating that the occupants had been abducted.

In the 31 second video, the person behind the camera could be heard shouting, “Oh my God, they have carried our friends, we are just coming from Kaduna. Today is 21st November 2021, oh my God, the Lord is faithful, thank you for saving our lives.”

Kaduna State Police Command is yet to respond to the video.

The state’s Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, did not respond to calls and a chat on the video

YOU AND YOURSELF ALONE CAN’T SURVIVE ALL BY YOU AND YOURSELF ALONE!!!

Have you heard,seen,witnessed or encountered any situation that gave and or painted a vivid picture of anyone surviving all by him/herself alone without an iota of direct and or indirect input/support from other persons?!

Regardless of your faith,tribe,status,profession,political affinity and the likes,you are not fated to survive without the direct and or indirect inputs/supports/efforts/instructions/help/admonitions/dislikes/likenesses/criticisms/encouragements/discouragements/betrayals/failures/successes/applauds/wants/needs and so on from persons of other faith,tribes, professions,status,political affinity and the likes!

Think it out and think it well,honestly, sometimes, the good,the bad and the ugly can come from any directions (from those whom you share all with or those whom you share nothing entirely or just little with)!

What’s important is love for all (as God’s Creations) and respect of the good and or even the better of relationships you share or must share at one point or the other with them!

If God had wanted all as one,it doesn’t cost Him anything! Never you deprive others of their rights,privileges and benefits just because they are not of the same faith,status, tribe,profession or politic lineage with you!

That would be cruel,unintelligent, antihuman, anti God and despicable acts of cowardice only exhibited by agents of Satan!!!

Leave what’s God’s for God and allow Him be the judge of all!!!

My humble opinion!

Comrade Dr. M.A Bello (ND,SHI,DCFR).

POLITICS OF SUCCESSION SHOULD NOT DIVIDE US – GOVERNOR EMMANUEL…MPM GETS NEW NATIONAL EXCO

Ahead of the 2023 gubernatorial elections in the State, Governor Udom Emmanuel has advocated for a peaceful transition of government stating that politics of succession should not divide Akwa Ibom State.

He has called on Akwa Ibom people to reject any aspirant who fails to embrace peace once elections season sets in.

Governor Emmanuel stated these on Friday, during the inauguration of the National Executive Committee and Grand Unveiling of Maintain Peace Movement (MPM) at the Nest of Champions, Uyo.

The governor who described MPM as a non-partisan, non- religious movement emphasized on the need to sustain peace which has attracted investors and developments into the state, adding that the essence of politicking is to bring development and progress to the people.

“Without peace there can’t be development, the presence of peace is the absence of conflict, the presence of conflict is the absence of peace, politics will never divide us, political parties will never divide us, we will never be divide because of religion.

“I stand in the gap as the leader in the state to declare peace in the 31 Local Government Areas in the State.

“Today I don’t want to talk about development it’s not a day for score card it is to make a pronouncement of peace in the land that as we move into the year 2022, the political situation will gather momentum, anybody who is not preaching peace don’t open your door for him.

“We are standing here today to launch MPM so that in our move towards transition there shall be peace and God will give us peace”, he stated.

The Chief Executive of the state explained that the recent agreement signed by Ibom Air and Airbus for the purchase of additional 10 aircrafts into the state is targeted at opening the three major gateways that will drive development, maintaining that when the private sector is encouraged, there will be job creation and employment in the state.

“Let me explain this, there are three major gateways to development, air, land and water and the State is pursuing the three at the same time, and the only way people can come to develop your state is when they have access to your state.

“Without access nobody can come, without access there can’t be development, government alone cannot provide that employment you want, but government can provide an enabling environment for investors to invest”, he explained.

The Akwa Ibom State Deputy Governor and Chairman on the occasion, Mr. Moses Ekpo, in his speech, described the gathering as non-discriminatory, as it every peace loving person was welcomed.

In his tribute to Governor Emmanuel as the progenitor of the peace movement, Mr. Moses Ekpo said the peace enjoyed in the state in the past six years was unprecedented and evident that the leader of the state is an embodiment of peace.

He urged the newly inaugurated executives of the MPM to ensure a peaceful transition in the governance of the state while praying that whoever emerges as the successor of the incumbent governor will be a man of peace with the interest of the state at heart.

In his acceptance speech, the Chairman/National Coordinator, Maintain Peace Movement (MPM), Barr. Emmanuel Enoidem, thanked Governor Udom Emmanuel for giving him opportunity to serve, describing him as a builder who has united the party giving all the sense of belonging.

Enoidem enjoined members of the party to take advantage of the ongoing PDP membership registration exercise and register with a proof of party membership card which will serve as an asset to them at the polls.

The newly inaugurated national executives of MPM include Barr. Emmanuel Enoidem as chairman, Hon Aniekan Bassey as
Deputy National Chairman, Prince Enobong Uwah as Secretary, Sir Monday Uko as Coordinator and 32 others.
