FEATURED: Why Are Black People Obsessed With The Bible That Was Used To Enslave ...

17.10.2008 Feature Article


As a group that is totally equipped in the struggle to tame Child

Abuse in Nigeria and indeed in Africa which has eaten the vital part

of the society, we at Poet Against Child Abuse (PACA), Rivers State

believe that name assassination is one odd among the varieties of

crimes against humanity and the peddlers of this un-wanted trade are

on it again.

Having closely monitored and investigated why Hon. Commissioner for

Information Rivers State, High Chief Ogbonna Nwuke is now a byword on

the lips of traducers, we have come to the affirmative that those

chasing the shadows against the Hon. Commissioner are just doing that

based on their on own imagination wishing they were appointed to that

exalted office of Rivers Information Ministry so that they would loot

funds directed for works in a sensitive ministry such as that of

Rivers Information Ministry, which act Nwuke hates to a fault and saw

as the worst of crimes against the Rivers State government and against

our people of Rivers State. Therefore, name-calling Nwuke is disfavour

against the dignity of a human being. He has done nothing that should

warrant the unnecessary vilification. Those witch-hunting him are

doing that on an illegal altar.

Without mentioning names, but those who are bent to this heinous act

know themselves and they are not doing that for the betterment of our

Rivers State, but to seeing how the illegal trade could better their

financial muscle.

We urge any embittered Rivers person to sheet his sword. Rivers State

can't make any progress if our people of Rivers State continued to

tinker and bicker. There are plenteous of human and natural resources

in Rivers State, but what is needed is unity to harness these

potentials. Being in the opposition is not room enough to mudsling any

ruling party with falsehood and negative aspersions. Nwuke should be

given some breathing space to serve with equity, transparency and

accountability. With that, nobody would be misled, information-wise.

Take note!
