BEDC should be sanctioned over cases of accidents from high tension cable wire

Ika Landlords/Landladies

The Ika Landlords/ Landladies Association, has called for the sanctioning of the Benin Electricity Distribution Company, BEDC over cases of accidents from high tension cable wires.

The association which spoke through her president, Mr Vincent Arimokwu JP, noted that the nonchallant attitude of BEDC on issues of accidents and vandalization of transformers and electricity poles is alarming and causes for a serious concern. Arimokwu mentioned a recent case where a 19-old-girl was almost electrocuted in Boji-Boji, Owa. He disclosed that the teenager who is undergoing a serious and painful experience that has led to the amputation of one of her hands , was abandoned by BEDC after the company’s cable fell on her..

He stated that since the ugly incident occurred his association has not abandoned the electricity victim’s family as efforts are being made to save her life.

“ Ika Landlords/ Landladies Association has been at the forefront of the high tension cable wire accident that occurred in Boji-Boji, Owa last week. Unfortunately, BEDC that was supposed to take responsibility and pay the medical bills of the victim did not show any concern. If the high tension cable wires were well placed issues of electrocution will never be there. Many high tension cables in Ika Land are dangling owing to the fact that they were not well placed. If BEDC was serious, the high tension cables would have been well demarcated with sticks, if that was done there will not be issue.

“We have visited the family home of the victim and they are seriously not happy with the condition of their beloved daughter. Something urgent should be done because it requires life. Even the police was not cooperative until we made them to understand what is going on. BEDC has now agreed to pay the victim’s hospital bills. My association is not against anyone but asking that the right thing should be done”

Meanwhile, the mother of the victim and a widow, Mrs .Nkechi Ijenamaka, has cried out to government, groups and concerned individuals to come to her rescue as she has no money to attend to the medical bills of her daughter.

“I am a widow. I have no money to pay for my daughter’s hospital bills. Since the accident happened I have been borrowing money from people. I don’t want her to die. Government and members of the public should please help out.”

She thanked the President, Ika Landlords/ Landladies Association, Mr Vincent Arimokwu,JP and the entire members of the association for the role they have played thus far.

Speaking shortly after the ceremony, Mr. Azikiwe Isiwuzo Ikemefune, the Elder brother of the newly installed Omu, who was feasibly happy with the development, described the celebrant as not only a sister but, someone who represented their late Mother. He thanked God for the memorable event and wished his sister good health, saying “My greatest desire is that she will continue to grow with us and for God to spare her life that she will grow with the family and be a honest Omu, for the goodness of Igbodo Community”, he concluded.

By Fr. Anselm Adodo

Onion is one of the potent natural anti-biotics. It strengthens the immune system, thus helping to ward off common infections. For over 15 years, I have been recommending Onion for many sick people, and the results have been positive. Chew a small bulb of a raw onion every night. It’s as simple as that. As a starter, you may take half a bulb instead of one bulb and gradually increase it to one bulb.

Onion has been proven to lower harmful cholesterol level in the blood. This is understandable when one considers the fact that Onion is rich in fibrinolytic substances that help to break up blood clots and to prevent coagulation. This makes Onion indispensable for many Nigerians who consume a lot of fat and butter.

Onion helps to lower blood sugar. This hypoglycaemic or anti-diabetic property of Onion is due to the presence of glycoquinine. Those who are afraid of developing diabetes because their parents have diabetes should make friend with Onion, as it is excellent prevention against diabetes.

Onion strengthens the blood cells that protect the body against micro-organisms. If these cells are weak, the body becomes prone to viral infections. Onion also destroys cancerous cells in the body. In Nigeria, cases of cancer, especially of the breast, are increasing daily. I wish to suggest that our women should take Onion as much as possible.

Onion purifies and strengthens the liver and the kidney and as well as cleanses the blood. Onion is an excellent remedy for hepatitis, which is becoming common in Nigeria these days. Do you suffer from resistant typhoid fever, inability to sleep well, low sperm count? Try Onion and see the difference it makes! Onion has been of help to men who experience weak erection or low libido. Regular intake of Onion is recommended for women who experience premature menopause and anovulation (inability to ovulate). It works.

In cases of sickle cell anaemia, Onion has been of invaluable help. Onion is rich in enzymes, which helps in the production of blood. Onion contains iron and trace elements, which are often lacking in sicklers.

Many people are surprised to hear that Onion is an excellent remedy for insomnia because most of us take Onion as spices very often. However, the quantity we take is not enough to effect significant changes in the body. The recommended dose is to eat one whole bulb of a raw onion every night. Alternatively, you could blend four bulbs of onions with one litter of honey. Dosage is one shot (20mls) twice daily.

An elder brother to the deceased, Mr. Okocha Ndudi while lamenting Chor-Chor’s demise, said Chor-Chor started struggling to make it in life from secondary school. According to him Chor-Chor was dogged and serious minded in whatsoever he did to make ends meet. He is a man who hated depending on someone.

“I am still in shock right from the day the news of his death was announced. Since death is inevitable, I and our other associates in Real Estate business cannot question God.“Chor Chor was somebody who had a mind to grow business, a philanthropist and jolly good fellow. We have learnt a lesson from his demise that we should have time for our well-being despite our tight business schedule.“Without mincing words, Chor-Chor, our friend, brother and business associate has lived a life that everyone should know that hard work pays”.

Responding on behalf of the planning committee for the funeral, Mr. Paul Efoeyini said even though their eyes were all tears that they gave God the glory for the success of the burial. He lamented over the shocking demise of late Ojei who according to him will forever be remembered for being the great hustler of our time.

According to him, “We are pained because his demise was sudden as he did not enjoy the fruit of his labour now that God has crowned his efforts with success. Since death is inevitable, my prayer is for God to grant his wife and children the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss”.

Mr. Efoeyini used the opportunity to urge all those working so hard to make it in life to endeavor to rest in order to enjoy the fruit of their labour, lamenting that late Ojei worked all the time without resting having the hope that a time will come for him to enjoy it in fullness. Continuing, he said the lesson which he learnt from the death of his late boss is for all hustlers to make out time to have rest so as not to die untimely.

The Personal Assistant to late Ojei, Comrade Jackson Ugbo said his late boss was a great man and will be greatly missed by many, most especially his business partners for his business acumen. According to him, “The sudden demise of my boss seems like a dream that it’s not true. The new of his death has wounded my heart”.

Billionaire Keys Master Class with Prince Okonye

Billionaire Keys Master Class with Prince Okonye

—Guest of the week: Joe Morgan, the Oworwor King

The Monday, August 9 edition of Billionaire Keys Master Class was both educative and impactful as participants had a field day. The highly advertised programme is anchored by the young, energetic and innovative Chief Executive Officer/Managing Director, Prince Paradise Global Concept (PPGC), the company behind the building of the first indigenous ultra modern estate in Ika Land.

The guest of the week was the celebtrated Oworwor King, also known as, DatAgborBoy, Eze Egwu Joe Morgan. The highly travelled Nigerian music maestro of Agbor extraction began his lecture with a brief hint on his background, musical career and how he feels as the eldest son of the legendary music icon of blessed memory, Cyril Chukwuemeke Kennedy Morgan, popularly referred to as, Dr C.K. Morgan.

Joe Morgan, born fifty-two years ago in Agbor grew up both in the royal palace and Lagos where he did his primary and secondary school education. Thereafter, he proceeded to Auchi Polytechnic, Auchi, Edo State where he studied Accounting.

He said, ” After my graduation, I worked briefly with Zenith Bank Plc in Lagos. I was among the first thirty staff of the bank.

“While at the bank, I was doing well but fulfilment came after I delved into music. Music was the main thing in my father’s house, everyone was into it. I was a good guitarist and my late father prepared me for the task right from my tender age. Today, by the grace of God I have no regret going into full time music.

Coming to the business of the day, Joe Morgan listed his five billionaire keys to include: Time, happiness, self discovery, sober reflection and trust in God.

His words, ” TIME: the first killer of any dream is time. If you want to succeed in life please do not allow time to distract you. Work hard to achieve your dream and do not be discouraged by time. Everyone has his or her season to shine, so, wait for your time and season and do not allow that of others to weigh you down.

“The second key is HAPPINESS: For you to succeed in life you must be genuinely happy for others. Be happy that your friend, neighbour, brother or sister is moving forward. You are bound to succeed in life when you are happy with other person’s progress.

“The third key is SELF DISCOVERY. In the journey of success, self discovery is very important. You cannot succeed if you failed to discover who you are. When you discover yourself success will be inevitable”.

” The fourth key is “IT IS GOOD TO CRY”. You learn more when you cry. You become more mature and experienced when you cry. If it does not pain you, it will not pay you. Whatever that makes you to cry adds value to your life.

“Fifth, “TRUST IN GOD NOT CHURCH,”. If you want to succeed in life put your trust in God and not man. Good will guide and direct your path to success not church. Don’t be deceived, God is the ultimate and the only one you can put your trust in.

He concluded by calling on young Nigerians who want to make it in life to work with the above stated five keys. “When you apply these five keys appropriately and be disciplined, the sky will be your starting point,” Joe Morgan stated.

While thanking Prince Emmanuel Okonye for the laudable initiative, he called on young business people in Ika Land, Delta State and beyond to key into the programme as they are not going to regret when they did.

On his part, Prince Emmanuel Okonye disclosed that the Billionaire Keys Master Class was his brain child, borne out of his desire to help mentor and create future successfull businessmen. He added that the programme which holds every Monday morning is spice up with different resource persons who have carved a niche for themselves in their different fields of endeavours.

He maintained that success is not achieved without applying the right principles, stressing that until the right steps are taken success is inevitable.

He commended Joe Morgan for sacrificing his time to be at the programme and also, all persons who participated. He said subsequent editions of the programme will be more educative and interesting.
