[ Masterweb Reports: Press Release by Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze ] –The Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje-led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has noted the ruling by a Lagos High Court presided over by Justice Oludotun Adefope-Okojie, who today threw out the suit we instituted against the illegal party regime of Alhaji Bamanga Tukur and his National Working Committee (NWC).
We wish to assure our teeming members and Nigerians in general that there is no cause to worry. This is because the ruling has nothing to do with the merit of the case but the place of filing. As advised by His Lordship, we shall hasten to re-file the suit, this time in Abuja, as we are convinced about the merit of our case. Our determination to sack the usurper, Alhaji Tukur, and rescue our great party from his misrule has never been stronger.
Finally, we urge all our supporters and members not to despair or exercise any atom of fear and should continue to support the leadership of our great party under the able leadership of Alh Abubakar kawu Baraje as we are getting closer to freeing our party from the enclave of undemocratic elements currently holding us to ransom and doing everything within their powers to ruin all that our founding fathers struggled to build.
With today’s court ruling, we are now very determined to restore PDP to the path of honour particularly now that we have lost our great first National Chairman, Dr Solomon Lar to the cold hands of death. Let us reiterate that nothing and we repeat nothing will stop us from implementing the visions of both Dr Solomon Lar and all the founding fathers of our great party to the letter and keeping all undemocratic elements at bar from leadership of our great party.
Long live PDP!
Long live Nigeria!!!

[ Masterweb Reports: Poem by Dr. James C. Agazie ] - IF I WERE BARACK OBAMA….
No more lectures, no more sermons on mountaintop
Away with White House diners, Flood Time is over: Fire Next Time
What will the Republicans do when Immigration Act comes along?
They ain’t seen nothing yet, nothing to take their breath away
Nothing to pull the rug from under stubborn, slippery feet
I’d keep the heat under the copper-bottomed kettle
I’ll let the Republicans seethe as a boiling pot of African herbs
Placed squarely between the malarial patients’ legs
Alas, they hiss as serpents in Eden Garden baffling a woman
And they scamper like headless chicks at the butchery
They’ve been dancing: “Defund Obamacare, starve it, obliterate it”
They’ve balanced budgets on backs of longsuffering, overtaxed people
Their pray that the Affordable Healthcare Act will come to naught
And want to trump over Oval Room and some Nine Old Judges
They jeer: “We’re the Cruz-Gingrich-Boehner (the Crusty Ginger Bread)”
Anarchy is what they specialize in, shutting the damn thing down
They send the uninsured to early graves and lay off unpaid millions
They get fat paychecks while millions have empty gnawing stomachs
They let the chips fall where they may, and you think they care?
They want us to smell our nyash, be furious, irate, and teed off
They consider us mindless hollering bastards who should “eat cake”
Hear them brag: “You can’t touch us Cruz-Gingrich-Boehler
We’re the Crusty Ginger Bread, the mighty Republican Elephants”

[ Press Release - For Immediate Release ] - On January 12, 1970 at the tender age of 14 as Charles O. Okereke witnessed the end of Nigeria’s historic civil war, enduring firsthand, the horrors of armed conflict as a child, he composed the hymn friends refer to as ‘Cry of A Biafran Child’. The essence of the sale/distribution of this song is not for any political ideology or agenda, but to identify with the history, will and determination of the people on both sides of that historic war, who symbolized a struggle and whose sacrifice, established either positively or negatively what is the present day Nigeria. In the same vein, this launching aims to celebrate the rich values of freedom, liberty and justice which the founding fathers of the great Nation - United States of America have handed down to its citizens, through the struggles of many iconic men and women who have contributed to the civil, political, ideological and social evolution of America.

[ Masterweb Reports: Press Release ] – (Public Information, 26th of September, 2013)-In our earlier Public Information today, we had called upon the Government of Anambra State to come to the aid of the surviving members of the Ezebula family, who lost four of its members in the July 29, 2013 deadly bomb blasts by Boko Haram insurgents in Sabon Gari, Kano State. We also demanded the mandatory presence of the Government of Anambra State at the interment of the four family members who were interred today in Uga Community of Aguata LGA of Anambra State, Southeast Nigeria. The aid we requested for included cash support, automatic employment for the wife of the late head of the family and offer of scholarship to the family’s two surviving children.
We are happy to inform that the Government of Anambra State led by Mr. Peter Obi not only attended the funeral today but also offered Mrs. Loveth Ezebula, mother of the three murdered kids a check of N1Million to enable cushion the effects of relocating from her Kano base to Anambra State. She was also offered automatic employment as an NCE holder subject to verification of her academic papers. Her two surviving children, Chukwuebuka and Anurika were offered scholarship to university level. While Chukwuebuka seeks an admission into the university, Anurika is an SS2 student of a private secondary school in their community.
We commend Governor Peter Obi and key members of his cabinet including Professor Stella Chinyere Okunna (commissioner for budget & economic planning) and Dr. Mrs. Uju Okeke (commissioner for education) for heeding our earlier calls and joining the family in mourning the tragic death of its loved ones.

[ Masterweb Reports: Press Release ] – (Public Information, Onitsha Nigeria, 26th of September, 2013)-On 10th of August, 2013, the leadership of International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law raised an alarm over fears that the Chairman of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in Kano State, Northwest Nigeria, Mr. Tobias Idika, might be killed by a death squad believed to have been hired by the host State Government. Mr. Idika cried out in a letter to the Inspector General of Police. The death threat was as a result of refusal of his leadership to mangle the figures of those killed in the July 29, 2013 deadly bomb attacks targeted at the Nigerian citizens of the Southeast extraction resident in Sabon Gari area of Kano State. Fifty Nigerian citizens mostly of Southeast Igbo extraction died in the deadly blasts. In the earlier blasts that shook the entire Sabon Gari area of Kano State on March 18, 2013, targeted at the New Road Luxury Bus Park, 2013, close to 185 Nigerian citizens mostly of Igbo Southeast Nigerians were massacred. The Kano State Government and its security agencies mangled and brought down the respective figures to 12 and 22.
Among those that were killed in the July 29, 2013 deadly attacks at New Road and Enugu/Igbo Road, Sabon Gari, were four members of Ezebula family in Umeze village, Uga Community in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, Southeast Nigeria. They are Chinemerem Kingsley Ezebula(male), 14 year, Chiamaka Constance Ezebula(female), 12 years, Nmesoma Peace Ezebula(female),10 years, and their father, Mr. John Nnamdi Ezebula, 48 years who died from injuries and shocks arising from the deadly bomb attacks. He died on September 23, 2013 in a hospital.
The news of their interment fixed for 26th of September, 2013 in Uga Community of Anambra State is received by us at Intersociety and millions of other concerned Nigerians with grief and shock. Till date, the whereabouts of other 47 dead citizens from the deadly blasts have not been publicly disclosed by the Federal Government or the Government of Kano State likewise about 185 citizens that were killed in the March 18, 2013 deadly bombings in the same Sabon Gari area of Kano State, Northwest Nigeria. It is possible that the Uga Community in Kano State must have passed through hell before securing the release of the remains of the EZEBULA FOUR from the Government of Kano State and agencies under its control. Bribing before securing their release under disguised names is also not ruled out especially as it concerns police involvement. This has become a common place in Nigeria with respect to fatal accidents, private crimes and socio-religious crimes’ victims.
Before their tragic death, the EZEBULA FOUR lived in Kano State. The late head of the family, Mr. John Ezebula(48) was a businessman, his wife and mother of the three murdered children; Mrs. Loveth Ezebula is unemployed but holds National Certificate in Education(NCE). Their two surviving children are Chukwuebuka Ezebula(male), 18 years and Anurika Ezebula(female), 16 years. While Chukwuebuka is a university admission seeker, Anurika is an SS2 student at a private secondary school located in their home town, Uga Community. Their three murdered siblings were in junior secondary schools before their tragic death.
The interest shown so far by the Government of Anambra State in the tragic incident is commendable. The mandatory attendance of their funeral on the fixed date by the Government of Anambra State will not only console the aggrieved family and the entire Uga Community, but it will further counter-balance the possible opinion holds by the affected family that government exists not to protect the lives and ensure the welfare of the citizens, but to kill and bury in mass graves of its citizens using socio-religious insurgency methodologies. To ameliorate the material effects of the tragic incident, the Peter Obi led Government of Anambra State should come to the aid of the family by offering an automatic employment to the mother of the murdered and surviving children of the Ezebula nuclear family, Mrs. Loveth Ezebula. Their surviving children, Chukwuebuka and Anurika should be offered a scholarship to university level. Cash envelopes should also be offered to the family to cushion the immediate effects of funeral rites and daily bread. A public school in the Community should be named after the family’s name and such school made to benefit from the State Government programs for public schools in the State.
The Uga Community should erect a joint statue in honor of the EZEBULA FOUR to be located at a conspicuous Community’s joint so as to keep the tragic memory fresh and unforgettable.
Finally, we wish to restate our earlier position that the present Government of Kano State under one Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso should be held responsible for the massacre of mostly Igbo-Nigerians in the State under the guise of socio-religious and political violent groups labeled “Boko Haram”. When over 30,000 Igbo-Nigerians were butchered in the State in 1966 by similar killer squads, his forefathers in power then never did anything to quench the pogrom. This led to the civil war of 1967 to 1970. This time around, he has repeated several times what his forefathers did and even went steps further to encourage the mangling and suppression of casualty figures as well as facilitating their burials in most disrespectful and un-African ways such as mass grave burials as if they are victims of earthquakes. Like we said before, the Kano killings are within the jurisdictional competence of the International Criminal Court, therefore, it must act now!
The Federal Government of Nigeria must acknowledge these killings and become apologetic and actionable at all times. Borrowing from USA, Canada, Australia, Belgium, South Africa, etc, there must be established for Nigeria National Sorry Day & Compensations of Victims of Political & Ethno-religious Crimes Schemes. This is to appease the souls and rehabilitate the families of such victims and dissuade their souls from haunting Nigeria and her socio-economic development. Firm political will is also paramount. Sorry-apologies have been offered to peoples and races, whose innocent members were massacred in droves in the years back with firm promises of never to repeat such carnages, pogroms, ethnic cleansings and genocides visited on such innocent peoples by their oppressors.

[ Masterweb Reports: Press Release ] – The attention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the good of Anambra State have been drawn to the purported rumor currently circulating across the state that a Federal High court in Port-Harcourt declared Senator Andy Uba as the new PDP Candidate of the Peoples democratic Party in the forthcoming Gubernatorial election in Anambra State.
Let us get the facts right, Senator Andy Uba has been suspended by the National Working Committee of the PDP and a High court in Abuja upheld the Suspension of Senator Andy Uba, Chris Uba, Ejike Oguebego and three others on the ground that these individuals defrauded the Party by printing fake delegate cards which they used to organize an illegal congress in Anambra on the 24th of August, 2013. While the Leadership of the party affirmed that the purported congress which they claimed to have organized remains ILLEGAL, NULL AND VOID…See details on www.peoplesdemocraticparty.net
Therefore, It will be unfortunate for Andy Uba who is and remains suspended from PDP to champion media sympathy as he is prone to over these years to garner artificial support on the pages of newspapers and the online media with an intention of misinforming the good people of Anambra State.
Let us get the facts right again. Last month, Senator Andy Uba approached a Federal High Court in Port- Harcourt, praying the court to declare him as the PDP Candidate of Anambra state and exactly Seven days ago, the same court vacated its order which it has earlier given compelling INEC and the PDP to recognize Andy Uba as the candidate of the Party in Anambra state. The Court threw Andy Uba’s plea to the gutters and asked him to go and work with Comrade Tony Nwoye who was the authentic Candidate that emerged at the Congress organized by the National Working Committee of the PDP.
Senator Uba in his usual desperate moves asked to be joined in a suit by Ejike Oguebego obtained at a Federal High Court in Port-Harcourt where he filed a motion asking the Court to recognize him Ejike Oguebego as the PDP Chairman of Anambra State against Ken Emekayi. The Matter before the court was for THE RECOGNITION OF THE CHAIRMAN OF THE PARTY IN THE STATE AND NOT THE CANDIDATE OF THE PARTY AS A FEDERAL HIGH COURT IN ABUJA HAD ALREADY AFFIRMED COMRADE TONY NWOYE AS THE CANDIDATE OF THE PARTY IN ANAMBRA STATE.
In its judgment today, the court asked Ken Emekayi to maintain a Status quo while recognizing Ejike Oguebego as the Chairman of the Party in Anambra State. In a deliberate action, Senator Andy Uba and his followers started raising false reports and rumors that they have been declared the Candidate of the party in the state. Which Court gave them such rulings?
WE MUST GET IT RIGHT. Be not deceived; let us have a look at the Guidelines in Nigerian Electoral Act.
Electoral Act 2010(As Amended 29th December 2010) stipulates as follows:
Nomination of Candidates by parties
Section 87 sub-section 1 stipulates that a political Party seeking to nominate a candidate for election under the act shall hold primaries for aspirants in all elective positions
Sub section 2 stipulates that for the nomination of candidates by political parties for the various elective positions shall be by direct or indirect primaries
In the case of Anambra State, the National Working Committee of the party adopted Indirect Primary
The electoral Act went on to stipulate in Section 87 sub-section 4 that for indirect Primary, a political party that adopts Indirect Primary for the choice of its candidate shall adopt the procedures outlined below
(b) In the case of nominations for the position of Governorship candidate political party shall, where they intend to sponsor candidates,
(i) Hold special congress in each of the Local Government Area of the state with delegates voting for each of the aspirant at the congress to be held at designated centers on specific dates
(ii) The aspirant with the highest number of votes at the end of the voting at the Governorship primary shall be declared the winner of the primaries of the party and the aspirant name shall be forwarded to the commission as the candidate of the party for the particular state.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the National Working Committee (NWC), followed all these steps before, during and after the Congress, complied with the above sections of our country’s Electoral Act and eventually submitted the name of Comrade Tony Nwoye, the eventual winner of the Congress to INEC as stipulated by the Electoral act.
WE MUST GET THE FACTS STRAIGHT. There was no where it was written in the PDP Constitution that it is the prerogative of the State Chairman to organize a Governorship Primary as Senator Andy Uba, Chris Uba and their likes in their deceitful and jingoist nature are busy dispensing to the public in such a deceitful manner.
THE ORGAN THAT ORGANISES A GOVERNORSHIP PRIMARY IN ANY STATE ACCORDING TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE PEOPLES DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS THE NATIONAL WORKING COMMITTEE OF THE PDP WHICH PRODUCED COMRADE TONY NWOYE ON THE 24TH OF AUGUST,2013 AND NOT STATE EXECUTIVES…Be not be deceived by the Uba brothers antics
The Court ruling of today was for the recognition of Ejike Oguebego and not Andy Uba.
TONY NWOYE REMAINS THE PDP CANDIDATE OF ANAMBRA STATE
LET THIS TRUTH SET US FREE……AMEN

[ Masterweb Reports: Eze Chukwuemeka Eze reports ] - “Every wise woman buildeth her house,” according to Proverbs 14 verse 1. It is based on this singular fact considering how this passage of the bible tallies with the vision of Mrs. Evang. Ada Chioma Henrietta Eze who toils daily to build her house from noting to what it is today that I hereby decorate this inspiring woman, whose life is totally dedicated and committed to building her home. She has become her family a model to many Christian families in all aspects of what a God fearing family should be.
We have met in the University of Calabar, Cross River State, Nigeria in 1986 as undergraduates. I came to understand and appreciate what Proverbs 22:18 says, “Whosoever findeth a wife findeth good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord” as this lady turned my life from nobody to somebody.
Mrs. Ada Chioma Eze formerly Miss Henrietta Nwaorgu of Ngor-Okpala in Imo State was born on 5th September, 1962 to the family of Pa Paulinus Nwaorgu and late Mrs. Celine Ada Nwaorgu. She is the third child of a family of nine with renowned Physician, Prof O.G.B. Nwaorgu of ENT Department in UCH, Ibadan and Romanus Nwaorgu a senior Custom Officer as brothers. She started her educational career at Umuodage Ntu Primary School from 1970 to 1976 and Secondary School at Amala/Ntu Sec. School from 1976 to 1981 all in Ngor Nkpala Local Government Area in Imo State.
From 1981 to 1983 she attended the famous Federal Government Girls College (FGGC), Owerri where she did her Higher School Certificate which qualified her for a direct entry admission in the famous Alvan Ikoku College of Education, Owerri and University of Calabar in 1985. She however preferred the University of Calabar where she read History and graduated in 1988. Mrs. Eze did the compulsory National Youth Service, NYSC with the Ministry of Sports in Rivers State. By 2006, this Amazon obtained her Master’s Degree (MPA) in Public Administration from Federal University of Technology, Yola Adamawa State.
Though married to this wonderful lady for over 23 years now, writing about her gives me so much joy and happiness which only God can give. I met her as a student in University of Calabar, Cross Rivers in 1985 but sports brought us closer and since then we have being lovers till date and it never surprised many of her room friends including (Barr Gloaria Akor, Barr Mrs Uche Uriri and Mrs Ohunene Scott-Ananaba, all of who I met recently, that we were married.
I was the Faculty of Arts Sports Coordinator in 1986 and it happened that we were in the same Faculty so because of her outstanding interest and performance in Sports, I called her to assist me coordinate the female athletes as it will be difficult for me to be visiting the female hostels to ask them to come out for training and participation in the games. At the end of that year’s Inter-Faculty Games, Faculty of Arts came tops; while she was the most outstanding female athlete. I was declared the Best Sports Coordinator that year that afforded me to be elected unopposed as the Director of Sports in the SUG Election of 1986.
With the help of this true gift from God, I was able to manage the UNICAL Football Team to become the champions of the Maiden edition of the NFA/PEPSI COLA Football Tournament amongst Higher Institutions in Nigeria in 1987. With this feat, I was awarded scholarship with the rest of the players to complete our education in the University. By 1987, she assisted me to organize the first Sports Honours Nit ever in the University where prominent sports sponsors like Alh. G.NA. Hamza, Chief M.K.O Abiola and Chief Emmanuel Iwanyanwu were honoured.
On completion of her youth service in Port Harcourt, she joined me in Yola in 1989 where I was posted for the same exercise. Again, this Angel assisted me to become the most outstanding Corps Member in the State and becoming the first Corps Member in Nigeria to have served the nation without receiving the normal allowances paid to NYSC members when I donated mine for the development of my host Community.
We stayed back in Yola after the youth service and by the grace of God was able to finish the normal traditional demands of her people and formerly got wedded by the then Rev, Ignatius Kagama now Bishop Kagama in charge of Jos Diocese of Catholic Church at St. Theresa Cathedral, Yola in May, 1992.
With her assistance, we established a Sports Company (Eze Continental Sports Ltd through which we donated several cups for competitions and made our names household in the entire Adamawa State. Regrettably after several years in Yola, we were forced to leave Yola about a year ago due to the menace of the Islamic sect, Boko Harams. Today, we are blessed with six wonderful kids, four in the university and one in secondary school while the last aged ten in still in primary school.
Mrs Ada C.H. Eze was born under the Virgo Astrology sign of August 23 –September 22 and when, I wanted to write on this wonderful woman, I looked through her Horoscope star and it seems that those that drafted it had her in mind “Analytical. Observant, Helpful, Reliable and Precise as these are truly the characters of this epitome of true womanhood. Read through the Virgo Sign and u will be reading about Mrs. Ada Eze but if you are not satisfied with the Virgo Signs then read Proverbs Chapter 31 verses 10 to 31 and you would have captured Mrs Ada Eze in her true nature.
Let us consider just few of the verses of Proverbs 31 that was authored by the Holy Spirit that captures the kind of woman Mrs. Ada Eze is. Proverbs 31:10 says, “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her prize is far above rubies.11. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.12. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.13. She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.14. She is like the merchant’s ships; she bringeth her food afar.15. She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household and a portion to her maidens.16. She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.17. she girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.18. she perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.19. She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. 20. She stretchet out her hand to the poor, yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.21. She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.22. She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her cloth is silk and purple.23. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land, 24. She maketh fine linen and selleth it; and delievereth girdles unto the merchant.25. Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.26. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.27. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.28. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also and he praiseth her.29. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.30, favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.31. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates”.
Frankly speaking all these verses have one thing or the other to express about this woman that I have prayed God to allow me marry her and marry again, if there is anything like reincarnation. I wonder what will be my fate in this world if not for the part this special gift to me played in my life. In line with Proverbs Chapter 31 verse 24. “She maketh fine linen and selleth it; and delievereth girdles unto the merchant”, I left our family business to her to run while I pursue my political career outside Adamawa State and she did improved so much on it that people wondered what exactly I was doing when I was in-charge.
In line with Proverbs Chapter 31 verse 20. “She strectcheth out her hand to the poor, yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy”, she founded the Compassionate Ministry through which she shares to the needy the goods that comes her way. A devout Christian who love God and committed to live out the tenets of laws of God and work hard to inculcate her beliefs in her children and the rest of her family and the Public Relations Officer of the Women Fellowship of Redeemed Peoples Mission, Yola District. Drama Producer/Director of the same church from 2009 to 2011 and currently an Evangelist based in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.
According to Chapter 31 verse 26. “She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness”, she stands as my most outstanding critic as she takes time to criticise any of my works or conducts that did not meet with her obvious high standard as she believes in excellence. In line with Proverbs 31 verse 31. “Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates”; and according to Nnenna Eze one of her fruits and her third daughter, “My Mum is a Princess in the court of d most high. I’ve always known my mum to be a woman of honour, prayer, virtue, wisdom, anointing, inspiration, godliness, righteousness, endurance, an instrument of Joy, dignity to mention a few. She’s just the best mum any child can ask for and I am so proud to have her as a mother. As a child, her contributions and influence on me is infinite. She he instilled wisdom in me” if you look at my mum, you will think that she is 40 but my mum is 50 to the glory of God.”
To her son, Kelechi Eze, “my mother is an outspoken and fearless woman who only fear God and stand by the truth always, she loves and supports me in my career”. While to Monica Eze her first child, “My mum is a virtuous woman, a woman of substance, a woman that understands realities of life and gives life to the broken heart. She is my star Queen that I look up to”.
To Chinyere Celine Eze her second daughter who she calls her mother as she was named after her late mother, Madam Celine Adama Nwaorgu, “My mum and daughter is a rare gem and gift to us her child. I am proud of her and pray God to grant her long life so that I can attempt to repay her little of her love towards us her children.”
When I asked the woman of the moment what she thinks about herself, she sent me a text and stated, “I am a very practical person and outspoken. I hate lying, laziness, dirtiness, unkindness, immorality. I am a natural woman that hates makeup and painting by most women. I frown on indecent dressing; bad cook and most importantly, I fear, love and have great CONFIDENCE in God. I give God all the Glory for what He has done in my life. If there’s something the devil didn’t want me to witness, it was my 50th birthday. If there’s something I would like to be remembered for, it’s my love for my fellow human beings. I want the world also to know that Mrs. Ada Eze is a woman so much loved by her husband and greatly cherished by her children and friends.
If you may recall and in line with her submission above, the devil did all within his powers to terminate the life of this godly woman after attacking her severally including a fatal accident on 22nd December, 2011 on her way back to the East from Yola with five of our kids for Christmas. We encountered a DAF Trailer with her Jeep and according to her; “I was awake during the accident, when the Jeep encountered the trailer, I saw the Jeep flying while I and the kids were in a sort of enclosure and after the accident the Angel of God remove the enclosure after ensuring that nothing happened to me or any of my kids but the trailer was so battered killing both the Trailer Driver and his two conductors! Somebody should tell me where such an incident ever happened in this world where a trailer encounters a smaller car and the people in the smaller car survived while the people in the trailer were all dead, if not demonstration God’s might and power?.”
In conclusion, as this pillar of my life, my best friend, my mother, my wife and the power behind apart from God behind whatever I am today celebrates her golden jubilee birthday celebration, it becomes imperative that I state this fact that Jubilee in the bible is described as the period God restores lost dreams and destiny and time of relocation! Any one in bondage at Jubilee is bound to be freed! When Moses witnessed his jubilee, he moved from the backside of the desert to the centre point of history, Joseph moved from Prison to the throne, Queen Easter from slave girl to the throne, Lazarus from stench tomb to a celebrity, Obasanjo from Prison to Aso Rock and Gov Amaechi from exile in Ghana to Rivers State Govt House and as you are related to us and opportune to read this message on Evang. Mrs Ada C. H. Eze Snr Golden Jubilee birthday and based on the principles of God and His special love for her child and this family, I hereby extends this jubilee blessing to you and surely you shall be celebrated after reading this message so accept our congratulations for your great success and freedom from every disappointments in advance!
This two time visitor to Jerusalem on pilgrimage courtesy of Adamawa and Rivers State Governments love for God made her to establish the Compassionate Ministries’ which she uses to spread the gospel and bring succor to the God’s children with more attention to the poor and under privilege. Her unfulfilled desire is to wax and launch a Christian gospel musical album to enable her reach to the wider public about the love of God to mankind.
I wish I have the whole world to give to this woman, who turned my life around based on the grace of God in her life. Once more congratulations my love and my beloved Angel!
