Straying cows owned by suspected Fulani herdsmen caused a ghastly accident along the Port Harcourt Airport road in Rivers state.

The straying cows came out from the bush, facing sn oncoming Toyota Camry. The car got damaged when the driver tried to avoid hitting the straying cows.

A witness at the scene of the accident, Ezebunwo Ichemati, shared the experience on Facebook, wrote

The Rivers State Government and House Of Assembly should as a matter of urgency propose and pass into law the Anti Open Grazing bill to save our Daughters and Sons from the carelessness of these Fulani Cattle rearers on our roads.

On my way back from Etche along the Port Harcourt airport road that leads to obiri Ikwerre, I saw two cows lying lifeless on the road and also a damaged toyota camry car on same road and this caused serious traffic.

I alighted from the car, got very close to the accident scene,only to discover that a Facebook friend of mine Miss Nengi was the passenger in the damaged Toyota camry car, enquiries as explained by the driver of the camry Mr George, showed that while he was on speed two cows ran out of the Bush towards their direction, he lost control of the car and that’s all you could remember.

In all of this, there was no trace of the Fulani Cattle Rearers. They fled deep into the Bush with their remaining cows.

Passersby who came to render help all spoke in unison about the daily occurrence of Fulani cows always running into cars, they said the last experience on that same road was a sad one because two human lives was lost and also pleaded to the Rivers State Government to do something about it.

A farmer at the scene who is also a pastor in OPM CHURCH lamented bitterly on how the produce from his farms have been destroyed by the Fulani Cattle Rearers and their cows.

‘Don’t cry for me, shed tears for yourself’ – Here’s the poem Tosyn Bucknor wrote predicting her death

Published

on

A poem written by late radio broadcaster, Tosyn Bucknor which predicted her death has surfaced online.

 

The 37-year-old radio personality was reportedly found dead by her husband, Aurelien Boyer on Monday night and her elder sister Olufunke Bucknor confirmed that she died due to complications from sickle cell.

 

However, the late OAP had written a poem which had gone viral, few days before her death, urging her friends and family not to cry when she’s gone but shed tears for themselves. Tosyn also said that she felt no fear for death and that’s why she lived her life the way she did.

 

The poem reads;

‘’Prize I’ve earned since my birth, my vow to leave a lasting voice after I was  ‘’I look into the future and see me cease, I feel no fear, my face won’t even cease

‘’My steps on this earth, a testament to life leaving this place filled with strife  ‘’Don’t cry for me, shed tears for yourself for each date you acquire gives you a little less.

‘’Now I know why I live the way I do Any why my mistakes, no second look  ‘’If I live my life according to their pace what’s my price in life’s meaningless race?  ‘

’Too much odds stacked against this fierce soul, so each hour, all I do is attain my goals  ‘’Spent a lot of days searching for purpose, Then I put my thoughts into poetry and prose

‘’This is why I was put in this world, be a voice, Put emotions in words  ‘’For every tear I shed and times my eye smiled, someone will have known every option I tried.  ‘

’This cowardly heart felt fear not death Prize I’ve earned since my birth  ‘’My vow to leave a lasting voice after I was Find a loyal number to keep fighting my cause  ‘’Here lies she who lived short but well No regrets for her, but all her story tell”.

Court rejects suit seeking registration of lesbian group in Nigeria

Published

on

Justice Nnamdi Dimg alt=’Court rejects suit seeking registration of lesbian group in Nigeria’ class=’img-responsive text-center’ style=’margin: auto;’ba of a Federal High Court in Abuja, has dismissed a suit challenging non-registration of a same sex group by the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), for lacking in merit.
The plaintiff, Pamela Adie, in the court papers, said that sometime in October 2017, she founded the “Lesbian Equality and Empowerment Initiatives” whose objective was primarily to advocate for the rights of same sex sexual orientation people but that her quest to register the association at the CAC, through her counsel, Fajenyo Kayode, was declined. She then filed a motion challenging the decision of the commission to decline the registration of the association.
In his judgment which was delivered last Friday November 16th, Justice Dimg alt=’Court rejects suit seeking registration of lesbian group in Nigeria’ class=’img-responsive text-center’ style=’margin: auto;’ba held that the decision of CAC refusing to register the group was in compliance with 30 (1) (c) of the Companies And Allied Matters Act (CAMA) Cap C20 Laws of Federation of Nigeria 2004.
“It is my view that where either the proposed name of the company or its aims and objectives are caught by the provisions of Section 30 (1) (c) of CAMA, the respondent is duly empowered to reject such an application for reservation of name or registration as it has done in this case.
“Section 30 (1) (c) of CAMA reads: “No company shall be registered under this Act by a name which- (c) in the opinion of the Commission is capable of being misleading as to the nature or extent of its activities or is undesirable, offensive or otherwise contrary to public policy.” the judge said

Recall that in January 2014, the Anti-Gay law which proffers 14-year jail term for anyone caught in any act of same sex, was assented to by former president Goodluck Jonathan.

No going back on N30,000 minimum wage- NLC insists

Published

on

The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) has vowed not to go back on the already negotiated new minimum wage of N30,000. The labour unions position came after the Nigerian Governors Forum stated that paying 30,000 naira is not feasible in the face of the current economic situation.

The NLC in a statement said

“We hereby reiterate our directive to Nigerian workers to vote out any politician or political party that refuses to pay the new national minimum wage of N30,000 naira. We shall continue to consolidate our efforts to strengthen the existing platforms and structures to give teeth to our resolve to vote out anti-labour governors and politicians in the forthcoming 2019 general elections’’

The NLC also warned President Buhari to be wary of some governors who are bent on portraying him as an anti-worker President for selfish reasons. The union has however vowed to resist any state government that would attempt to frustrate the union’s efforts in putting smiles on the faces of the Nigerian workers.

“We call on President Muhammadu Buhari to speedily present to the National Assembly the bill on the National Minimum Wage for appropriate amendment and implementation” the statement read
