….Commends FG for Staying True to Minimum Wage Arrears Payment Promise

 ….Urges Nigerians to Keep Faith with PMB’s Administration

Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, chieftain of the All Progressives Congress and erstwhile National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP), in appreciation to God Almighty for keeping him alive to witness and celebrate his 62nd birthday, rededicated his life for better services to humanity.

In his new year message to Nigerians, made available to media houses, the party stalwart urged citizens to keep faith with the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, in its determination and stern resolve to turn the fortunes of Nigerians through critical but hard decisions that will impact positively in the future of the country and the populace.

Eze, a media guru, commended and congratulated the Federal Government, particularly the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Nwabueze Ngige for proving wrong the doubting Thomases, by fulfilling the pledge to not only implement the minimum wage, but to pay the arrears of about eight months salary owed to Federal  Civil Servants before the end of the year 2019.

Eze who turned 62 today considers this a gesture and  special birthday package which is intended to inject life into lots of families in Nigeria.

In demonstration of his love for a better and egalitarian Rivers State, Chief Eze appealed to Governor Nyesom Ezebuwo Wike of Rivers State to consider the circumstances that brought him into power and resolve to work for a better and secured Rivers State this year, by effectively utilising the state’s resources and channelling them into profitable ventures to touch the lives of the youth and the elderly through massive employment, appointments and prompt payment of salaries, emoluments and other sundry allowances due Civil Servants and Pensioners. With the huge funds that accrue to Rivers State on monthly basis from the Federation Account and internally generated revenue, Eze said, any serious administration can turn the State into a Paradise.

He congratulated the Governor for swearing in the Commissioners but counseled him to allow them free hands to enable them bring in ideas that will improve governance in the State.

Eze, a party chief expressed sadness over the negative politics embarked upon by Senator Magnus Abe, stressing that such contributed chiefly to what made Wike lose sight of the true essence of governance. He pleaded with the Ogoni-born ex-Senator to apologize to the All Progressives Congress and the good people of Rivers State, especially now that his evil agenda have been exposed, stressing that fighting further will mean volunteering to injury, and as the saying goes, “a volunteer to injury cannot further complain”.

Eze encouraged Rivers people to have hope in God, stressing that His ultimate will must surely come to bear on issues pertaining to Rivers State. He expressed hope that the APC will take her rightful position in the political affairs of Rivers State, notwithstanding the satanic collaboration and grand conspiracies.

Eze described Rt. Hon. Dr Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi as a light from Niger Delta region and expressed confidence that the light will bring hope to Nigeria and Nigerians within a short while.  “I am so happy of the joy that Amaechi has brought to Nigerians with the revolution he is igniting through the Rail System,” Eze opined.

He stressed the need for Nigerians to do more towards strengthening the nation’s bond of unity which seems to be under severe threat by forces of national disintegration and secessionists propagators.

While congratulating Nigerians on this epoch making year, Eze urged all and sundry  to continue to pray always for the country and her leaders especially for divine direction in critical decisions and moments of challenges.

Eze commends and congratulated his Media Aides and hundreds of Media Partners for  their contributions towards making our Team one of the most vibrant, vocal and dreaded Media Teams in Nigeria today.  “As we collectively rejoice over making it to 2020, let us prepare ourselves for a greater outing hoping that the political system will appreciate most of our deeds this time around”. Eze said.  “In the spirit of my birthday pray and hope that 2020 will be better for us all”. He averred.

He thanked most of our political Leaders particularly Rt. Hon. Dr. Amaechi, who stood by him even at the period his life and that of his family were under threat by some of those who felt threatened by his bold steps to expose their plots against a virile, egalitarian, vibrant, united, progressive and better Nigeria.

Eze described 2019 as an eventful year for his team, opining that he cannot thank  all those who made the year one of his best in his 62 years of sojourn over here.

“Apart from my special thanks to my Media Team and Partners who stood by me not minding all my shortcomings, my brother and leader, Dr. Amaechi need a great commendation for giving me the Lion spirit to confront the enemies of our society headlong, silencing and conquering them accordingly”. Eze said.

“Thanks and thanks to Dr.Dakuku Adol Peterside, Dame Judith Amaechi, PrinceTonye Princewill,  Aso Wenah, Debiwari, Amb. Ngofa, Mohammed Bello, Prince Lucky Worlu, Lady Oby Ndukwue, Dr. ThankGod Ode, Rt. Hon. Leyi Kwanee

I appreciate you too and hope that 2020 will cause us to help in rebuilding Rivers State to the vision of the founding fathers of the State”

President Buhari announced 14-day cessation of movement in Lagos, Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and Ogun State as part of the steps to break the cycle of the spread of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the country.

He said the enforcement of the restriction order would be executed with human face, but pleaded with residents and inter-state commuters to exercise self-compliance with the presidential directive.

He said: “We have just concluded a Security Council meeting with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and as commanders of security agencies in Lagos, we have fully digested the presidential directive on COVID-19. We have all resolved now to comply and enforce all the restrictions.

“The enforcement of the restrictions and all directives will be done with human face. We want to appeal to members of the public; what matters most is self compliant.

He said: “The exemption is not blanket. Some other measurements will still be attached to it and sent to various government ministries in the state. The Commissioners in charge of these ministries will have review and confirm those who are exempted are actually qualified to be exempted.”

Lagos State Government on Monday discharged five coronavirus patients who were admitted to and treated at the Infectious Disease Centre, Yaba Mainland Hospital.

They expressed joy and satisfaction with the State Government and Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu over the treatments they received at the isolation centre and his proactive approach towards the containment of the virus.

One of the survivors ( names withheld) said, “I came in here on the 15th and after the test showed positive, I was asked to come back the next day. I was admitted here same day.

“Initially, there were hitches but it later turned out fine. The health workers did fine, all our challenges were attended to. I’m a living witness together with my other colleagues.”

“We can beat it, I want to assure others that this is not their resting place. Encourage yourselves, take your medications and in no distant time, you will get out of here.

“I want to appeal to the Federal Government and Lagos State government that, they should remunerate all those workers who have volunteered to work accordingly, so as to serve as encouragement to others, adding that, “If they are not here as first responders, many patients would have died.”

Another survivor said, “I was admitted last Sunday. Initially there were challenges, the following day, they brought bed, mask and some equipment.

He narrated a scenario where the workers could not attend to him because he tested positive, saying “they went back and I slept off, I woke up around 3a.m. So they deserve life insurance to encourage them to do their job.”

The Governor, in a short message reassured Lagosians that the Government is doing all within her powers to curtail the spread of the virus so that life could return to normal.
