"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." (2 Corinthians 12:9) How many of us can recall the last time we had a setback? I have had them severally. Though unpleasant but with them come life's vital lessons. I have not had shortage of hard times or obstacles. There were times these obstacles came in succession like I had the worst case on earth 😊 and they still come. But in all these, God has been faithful. He allowed these obstacles to come my way to get me prepared ahead making me a better and stronger woman.  Through these obstacles, God showed I Am a work in progress in His hands  making His strength more than enough for me so I can trust and have faith in Him even more. God never promised us smooth sailing, but promises to be with us through the storms of life.  We have all had one form of setback or the other either in our past or presently faced with one or more. Setbacks can be so unpleasant and discomforting. No one wants to or

Rivers State Deputy Governor Dr. Mrs. Ipalibo Harry Banigo has dissociated herself from calls by mischief makers urging the Governor to let her head the COVID 19 Team in the State.   In a statement from the Government House in Port Harcourt on Friday 10 th  July, 2020, the Deputy Governor expressed regret that despite the concerted efforts by Governor Wike to protect the Rivers People and stem the spread of Covid 19, some faceless enemies of the State sponsor e-rats to publish junk in the social media, what an absurd way to play politics.   The Deputy Governor of Rivers State is a part and parcel of the Governors team in this fight against the Killer Virus and she is contributing her quota, she must not head the team.  There is no law that says she should head the team so why the fuss.    Governor Wike is the leader and he has demonstrated great capacity and leadership in the Country not only in the quest to defeat Covid 19 but in providing democratic dividends to the Rivers People and


We live in a worth-seeking world where everyone wants to be liked, loved and accepted by all and then feel like you are for everybody or that everyone likes you. We try so hard to please people in an effort just to feel better about ourselves seeking validation and reaffirmation of self-esteem. And then, with the rise of social media showcasing both fake and flashy lifestyles, it becomes so easy to want to be like them.  Lots of youths are seen battling for validation from the wider public through the different social media platforms or from a group of people.  I have seen so many people especially youths working so add to conform to the social media craze all in a bid to seek acceptance or fit in. There is always this fear of social rejection when you dare to stand on your own or think outside the box. When a majority of people are seen doing same thing or agreeing on a thing, such people are tempted to want to join the trend just to fit in. We have a generation of people who always w
