How do you feel celebrating your 50th marriage anniversary with your beloved wife and children?I feel fine and great. I am very grateful to the Almighty God for the grace, favour and good health. Celebrating 50 years in marriage with my beloved wife, Mrs. Grace Ogbe is not a mean feat.Not all couples who got married the same time with us are privileged to celebrate today. It’s not by our power but by the grace of God. Hence, we decided to give back the glory to God through thanksgiving and praises to His name. We got married 50 years ago and today, we are very happy and grateful to the Lord that our marriage is blessed with lovely children and grandchildren.

Where is your place of origin?I am from Idumu Orue Quarter in Agbor-Nta, Agbor. While my wife is from Idumudia, also in Agbor-Nta. We grew up almost at the same time at Agbor-Nta. We became friends when we were still at Agbor-Nta. We dated for seven years before we got married.

Why did you marry her?I married her because I saw a good behaviour in her. At that time I had up to three women to choose from, I saw progress in her, hence, I got married to her.Was there any challenge from her parents?No. Her parents were aware we were friends. I assisted her father in his farm works. Her father before his death told his family members to allow me marry his daughter.

How did you feel the day you got married?I felt happy and fulfilled the same way I felt when we celebrated our 50th marriage anniversary on December 27,2020.

How would you describe marriage?Marriage is an institution that requires patience, trust, tolerance and love. Life is full of ups and down. When you are disciplined, committed and responsible, you will surely enjoy marriage. We are very happy in our marriage. As we celebrate our marriage is blessed with four children and many grandchildren. We will remain grateful to God for keeping us alive till today.

Challenges?The challenges are too much but, we were victorious. There were challenges from family members, friends and business. I was into transport. I was the founding chairman, Lagos Park, Agbor. During the time I encountered many serious challenges. I was able to overcome by the grace of God. My wife stood by me in all the challenges. I am very proud of her.

Happiest moment (s) in marriage?The day I got married, the days our children were born and our 50th marriage anniversary.What quality do you admire most in your wife?She is a very good cook. She is the best. She takes very good care of my family members. I have never slept without food. She is very caring and loving.

What advice do you have for newly married couple?There is a proverb in our Agbor language that says, “Orii ejijen atabe onu ” (He that hurries his food usually bites his tongue). What I am saying in essence is that life is slow and steady. When couples are patient in their marriages and allow love reign, they will always succeed. Couples should avoid dishonesty, lies, intolerance and embrace anything good that will lead to success in their marriages.

What is your prayer for your children?My prayer for my children is that they will be greater than me. They will prosper in all they do in life. They will live long to celebrate their own golden marriage anniversaries.

Engineer Austin C. Jimmy emerges Ika South ADC chairmanship candidate

Engr. Austin C. Jimmy of African Democratic Congress, ADC for the March 6, 2021 Local Government Council election. The ADC chairmanship candidate shortly after his emergence slams Ika South PDP over the emergence of the party’s candidate a week to its party primaries, stating that the era of playing with the people’s intelligence is over.

His words, “If PDP as a political party in power could betray itself, what do you think they can offer the general masses? .Barely seven days to their party primaries their candidates started emerging from the sky. They lack internal discipline and these are the same set of people clamoring to manage the resources of our local government. PDP and APC is the same rat but in different holes. PDP succeeded in installing a rubber stamp Chairmanship candidate and the imposition will be resisted by the people through their voter’s cards. PDP political leaders can’t continue to channel the resources of the people to their personal pocket thereby, subjecting the citizens to abject poverty. There is a great hunger in the land and the welfare of our people has been neglected for so long and this is the time to give back to our people. The people must benefit from their government, ADC is the only youth-oriented political party ADC is the only citizen-friendly political party that is ready for good governance at all levels, a vote for ADC is a vote for the welfare of our people and our resources must be channeled to the real owners that is the citizens of Ika South local government. The structure of ADC is the citizens of IkA South.

A vote for ADC is a vote for the freedom and dividends of democracy of our people. PDP and APC should be aware that they are still practicing analogue governance while ADC as a youth party of Ika South has gone digital. We appeal to the people of Ika South for their maximum support for ADC in entrenching a disciplined and people oriented leadership in the local government.
