Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has reassured the people of the state that his administration will soon reel out its grassroots-based programme that will be all-inclusive and ensure that everybody is carried along in terms of political appointments and participations.

Gov. Ugwuanyi spoke at Amagunze, the headquarters of Nkanu East Local Government Area, during the inauguration of some development projects executed by the Chairman of the council, Hon. Ikechukwu Ubagu and the formal reception of the Senatorial Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Enugu East Senatorial District, Prince Lawrence Eze, back to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He reiterated his administration’s committment to inclusive governance in the state.

The Governor commended Hon. Ubagu for the good works he has done in the council and welcomed Prince Eze and his teeming supporters back to the PDP family.

Eze decamped from PDP to the APC in the last election, where he contested the Enugu East Senatorial seat.

The projects inaugurated by Gov. Ugwuanyi include the state-of-the-art 1,500-seater pavillion and administrative block of the council executed by the Council Chairman and the Nkanu East PDP Local Government secretariat built by the party Chairman, Prince Emeka Nwatu with the support of the party stakeholders.

Gov. Ugwuanyi who stated that the era of politics is over, maintained that what is paramount at the moment is how to move the state forward and ensure the sustenance of the existing peace and good governance in the state.

Noting that the PDP is growing from strength to strength, the governor thanked all those who are working hard for the party and government, saying: “Very soon we will move to the electoral wards to recognize people to make sure that everybody is carried along”.

He appreciated in a special way the stakeholders of Nkanu East LGA for their support and cooperation, assuring them that he has not taken such gesture for granted.

Earlier in his speech, Chairman of Nkanu East LGA, Hon. Ubagu while welcoming Gov. Ugwuanyi to the council applauded him for his support and encouragement, stressing that the feats his administration recorded was as a result of the governor’s uncommon leadership qualities and his special love for their people.

The chairman who announced the council’s decision to name the pavillion after the governor, as “His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi Pavillion”, explained that it was in recognition of his support and contributions to the development of the area.

Prince Eze, who was handed over to the State Chairman of the PDP, Hon. Augustine Nnamani by the LG party Chairman, Prince Nwatu after the Chairman of PDP in Mburubu Ward, Obinna Egbo, introduced him and announced his return to the PDP, said that “PDP runs in me”.

The returnee pointed out that he is “a worthy son” of Gov. Ugwuanyi and thanked God for using the governor as “an instrument to unite Enugu State”.

Prince Eze who promised to bring back more of his supporters to the PDP family, reassured the governor and other party leaders of his loyalty and support.

Other dignitaries at the event include the Deputy Minority Leader of the Federal House of Representatives and member, representing Aninri/Awgu/Oji River Federal Constituency, Rt. Hon. Toby Okechukwu, member, representing Nkanu East/Isi-Uzo Federal Constituency, Hon. Prince Cornelius Nnaji, Rt. Hon. Paul Nnajiofor, Rt. Hon. Princess Peace Nnaji, Chief Evaristus Nnaji, among others.

Nigeria Needs Factories The Size Of Ibadan NOT Churches – DaddyFreeze Replies Pastor Adeboye

church

OAP, DaddyFreeze has countered 77-year-old General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, who during the week, said one of the things he must do before he dies is to build a church as big as Ibadan city in Oyo state.

Preaching on the third day of the Holy Ghost Congress 2019 holding at the Redemption Campground, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Pastor Adeboye said he has a plan of building a church as big as Ibadan. According to him, no one should believe he is dead until that is done. 

Freeze has now countered his dream. In a post shared on his IG page this evening, Freeze said what Nigeria needs more of now are factories and not more church edifice as she already has enough of that. Read his post and share your thoughts.

GOD DOES NOT LIVE IN HOUSES BUILT BY HUMAN HANDS!!!

This in my opinion, is a selfish ambition (scripturally selfish ambitions are in the same category as witchcraft and sexual orgies), that does nothing for Christians, rather I see it as a quest to turn believers into beasts of burden!

? Galatians 5:20 ?
New International Version
idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions

The more I think about it, the angrier I get. Adeboye wants to use 3,080 square kilometers to build a church or a bigger business center, which one???
???

In this poverty riddled land, with more people in extreme poverty than China and India combined (according to worldpoverty.io), couldn’t he at least have been a little more creative????

We need factories the size of Ibadan NOT churches, we have way too many churches already.
With 10 churches on each street, we have so much religion, so much hunger and underdevelopment yet so little love.?

WE ARE THE CHURCH, NOT A BUILDING, the church is not the ‘house of God’, it’s just a building and God does not live in temples built with human hands.

? Acts 7:48 ?
New Living Translation
However, the Most High doesn’t live in temples made by human hands. As the prophet says,

? Acts 17:24 ?
New Living Translation
“He is the God who made the world and everything in it. Since he is Lord of heaven and earth, he doesn’t live in man-made temples,

? 2 Corinthians 5:1 ?
New International Version
For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.

? Hebrews 9:11 ?
New Living Translation
So Christ has now become the High Priest over all the good things that have come. He has entered that greater, more perfect Tabernacle in heaven, which was not made by human hands and is not part of this created world.

Impeachment: Trump Has High Chance In Office – US Senate Leadership

Published

on

By

impeachment

The US Senate leadership has stated that US president won’t be removed from office, as a result of ‘the weak case’ presented by the Democrat controlled US House Of Representatives.

The House Judiciary committee led by Democrat Jerry Nadler voted along party lines on Friday to submit two articles of impeachment against Trump and the US leader could be impeached as early as Wednesday next week.

Trump’s impeachment by the US House is as a result of a July phone call he made with Ukraine’s president Zelensky asking for investigation of his political rival Joe Biden in return for military aid.

The House could impeach Trump next week but the Senate led by Republican Mitch McConnell says the Democrats have no case and he will be working with the White House lawyers and the president to ensure a quick and smooth trial in the senate.

“The case is so darn weak coming over from the House. We all know how it’s going to end,” Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell said on Fox News program “Hannity.” on Saturday.

“There is no chance the president is going to be removed from office.”

McConnell also said he hoped that none of the members of his caucus would vote to remove the president from office, adding “it wouldn’t surprise me if we got one or two Democrats” to vote to acquit Trump .

He explained that the articles of impeachment would be different from ordinary legislation that makes its way from the House, in that: “We have no choice but to take it up. But we’ll be working through this process hopefully in a fairly short period of time, in total coordination with the White House counsel’s office and the people who are representing the president, in the way all of the Senate.”

Mitch declined to reveal what a Senate trial might look like or whether Republicans would call witnesses such as former Vice President Joe Biden, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., or the intelligence community whistleblower, whose complaint about Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky sparked the impeachment inquiry.

“I’m going to take my cues from the president’s lawyers,” said McConnell.

“My hope is that it will be a shorter process rather than a long, lengthy process.”
