|Romance / Don’t Close The Door Yet Sister by Sosoboy4: 7:06pm On May 29, 2020|
As a single man, you ask an obviously unmarried lady out and she says “sorry I’m in a relationship” and many ladies will quickly change their status on their social media handle to….”in a relationship or Engaged” …
Worse still some will go as far as putting up the pics of a man who is not yet officially theirs on their Facebook Dp and I keep wondering what goes on in the minds of these ladies.
Shall we call that being inlove, being faithful or being naive?
Every single lady reading this should wake up and understand that until a man is officially married to you, and that a man is even engaged to you does not guaranty marriage.
Each time you tell a guy who asks you out that you are taken while still unmarried, you are simply shutting the door on yourself too soon and many ladies have shut out their husbands simply because they got carried away by an unserious man who is only good at mouthing their love and giving them forlorn hope.
Some of these men won’t marry you!
This is not about being unfaithful to that particular guy you truly desire but it is about tactfully leaving your options open by not flaunting him on facebook thereby driving away possibly more willing suitors.
Many ladies remain taken for years without wedding bells. And later curse the men whom they claim took them when those men leave to marry other women.
The bottom line is that it is advisable for you to adjust flaunting any guy you are courting on fbk and only flaunt your husband!
Stop blocking your chances because In the real world…There is no such word like “I’m taken” while you are still unmarried.

|Politics / The Legendary Of Amaechi’s@ 55 Achiever May 27, 2020. by Sosoboy4: 6:52pm On May 23, 2020|
The name Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi greatly rings a bell in the minds of Nigerians especially Rivers People whom he served as their Governor (2007-2015) due to his infrastructural development and his redefining of governance.
Amaechi is a field marshall of development whose legacy and giant strides remain unparalled. He redefined governance with the ‘Change you can see’ and the ‘Rivers of possibilities’ that the State became under him.
As a development expert and a seasoned administrator, he declared a state of emergency on almost every sector of the state which was aimed at improving the living standard and economy of the state; ranging from Education, Health, Agriculture, Sports, Tourism, Power, Security, Job Creation/Employment, Human Capital as well as Economic Development amongst others.
He transformed the State tremenduously and became the face of development to the admiration of his colleagues and others. This feat earned him a lot of awards and laurels from both national and international organizations.
His legacies as Governor will remain indelible which will go down in the annals of the history of the state.
Let me briefly summarize his achievements under these sectors below;
On assumption of office the Amaechi-led government declared a state of emergency on education, completely took over the payment of salaries of primary school and junior secondary school teachers, which was the function of local governments, in ensuring that education takes centre stage in the state as at then.
In other to further strengthen and ensure quality education in the state, Amaechi signed into law five bills brought for his assent by the State House of Assembly, which included; The Rivers State Universal Basic Education Amendment Bill 2012 and The Rivers State Senior Secondary Schools’ Board Bill 2012 amongst others. Under his administration, the government built several model primary schools which was almost seen in every community in the State– each with 20 classrooms equipped with ICT facility, modern library, science laboratory, football field, basketball pitch, volleyball pitch and nursery playground.
These model primary schools were built to the standard of the United Nations as obtainable in developed parts of the world. Not left out was the construction of 20 new classroom blocks’ model primary school with state of art facilities to commemorate the status of Port Harcourt as World Book Capital, a feat achieved under him due to his tangible revolution in the education sector.
His administration was the first to have a quality assurance agency in Nigeria which is very important to evaluate performance in our educational deliverables.
These and more feats too numerous to mention were done to reposition the State’s education sector under him.
The health sector witnessed rapid development both in infrastructure and human capital development under his administration.
Building of primary and secondary health facilities took centre stage with Model Primary Health Centre in almost all communities in Rivers State with 60 Health centres commissioned in 60 Days in 60 Communities, ‘‘the 60:60:60 initiative’’ and also the establishment of secondary health facilities in all the LGAs in the State.
There was also the facelift and reconstruction of existing health facilities. In ensuring that these facilities function optimally, medical doctors and other health professionals were employed to work in them.
There was a revolution in the agricultural sector as was visibly seen in the state. There was massive establishment of agricultural facilities which was aimed at ensuring food security in the state ranging from revitalizing Risonpalm, now SIAT, establishment of Songhai Farm, Buguma Fish Farm, Banana Plantation etc. Loans and other agricultural incentives(improved varieties of seedlings, fertilizers etc) were given to farmers to help improve in their productivity.
Power was given the attention it deserves because of the economic role it plays in the development. His administration built three power stations situated at Omoku (150 Mega-Watts), Trans-Amadi (130 MegaWatts) and Eleme (75 Mega-Watts). Seven Transmissions stations (132/33kilo volts) and 7 Distribution injection sub-stations 33/11 Kilo Volts were also built amongst other achievements in the power sector.
5. HUMAN CAPITAL DEVELOPMENT
Human Capital Development is the best development any nation can have and export to maintain development equilibrium, and Amaechi being a human development expert and a pathfinder in education embarked on foreign scholarship for the less privileged as well as deserving Rivers indigenes. Scholarship were also awarded to Rivers indigenes who were in Nigerian Universities to aid them in their academic pursuit.
Vocational Centres were established for the training of Rivers people in different kinds of skills with starter packs given to them which made a lot of them self-employed and financially independent.
Tourism was another key area that was greatly developed. The Amaechi-led administration introduced the ‘CANIRIV’. The Government recognized Carniriv as its biggest tourism export. With economic interests increasingly identifying tourism as a viable alternative to the fossil fuel economy- especially in these parts. The state government exhibited its commitment to developing this carnival into a regionally unrivalled and globally reckoned tourist attraction.
Thus, it has always made available the necessary monetary backing needed for the event to hold every year, and has also worked hard through the Rivers State Tourism Development Agency and the Ministry of Culture and Tourism to see that it is held.
In true carnival style, contingents of the 23 LGAs engage a procession (on a pre-defined route) through the streets of Port Harcourt showcasing enthralling dances and masquerade displays as they do so. All of these performances were embedded in colourful floats gigged with impressive icons.
Under his administration, security was given adequate attention because he believed that security was the foundation upon which progress in every other facet of development depends.
There was deployment of technology in crime fighting, which is to say that the states’ security network was driven by excellent modern technology. Another step was to raise capacity among selected security personnel, over through local and overseas training in Israel and other parts of the world on modern crime fighting techniques and intelligence gathering.

|Politics / Worgwu Boms, Amaechi’s Greatest Political Mistake- High Chief Oby Ndukwe by Sosoboy4: 4:14pm On May 20, 2020|
Among the 12 Disciples was a Judas who conferred with the Romans on how to kill Jesus.
That was how the plot to cl impeach Amaechi through the Courts was hatched.
There will always be an insider before such can be properly executed.
Sadly, when there was a crisis of confidence amongst the 'coup plotters' and some Lawmakers initially recruited made a detour, the grandmaster of the coup had to convince his godmother in Aso Rock that the coup failed because the Governor, referred to as the "Big man" had shut down the Courts. That way, the money doled out for the project at the Rivers State House of Assembly was diverted!
What many do not know is that the Minister and Chief Mastermind of the plot to outst the Speaker and eventually, Amaechi, the Governor had sought refuge in the Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General to help him out.
The most stupid counsel on earth was given to the
Big Man. Let's allow the crisis in the Judiciary to rage on, and then we get the security Agencies to close down the Courts.
Of course, it was not without a fee.
In the end, Judas succeeded, got the money but had to pay the Supreme sacrifice.
The protagonist of this story on how the Big Man Government would have been sacked, Barr Worgu Boms, succeeded in misleading the Governor, while aiding the Small Boy Minister to cover his tracks before Mama Peace but he paid the Supreme price for his ignoble role and till date, he remains expelled by the Nigerian Bar Association, Port Harcourt Branch.
Recall that after the betrayal, Jesus never spoke of Judas again until he ascended to the Throne.
So shall it remain with this same Judas, even if he chooses to continue with his self destruct.
The Governor will never trust such a fellow to even come close to him. All he will do is keep giving him what he loves and allow him to dwell in his tomfoolery!
As for the Big Man, his greatest political blunder was not the 2019 elections but the appointment of Worgu Boms in place of his elder brother, Chima Boms.
