Pregnant for a ghost...

The church auditorium was filled to capacity hence members that could not find space inside had to make do with the overflow. Ifeoma was among those that sat at the overflow. It was the Wednesday healing service and Reverend David Henshaw of the Royal house ministry was at his best. He was vibrating inside out and asking the congregation to sing praises. Suddenly,he stopped. Every where was quiet then he asked, "who is Ifeoma Okoye?" Ifeoma was surprised because she has never met the man of God before and she was there for the very first time. She quietly walked to the pulpit. Reverend David was one man of God that had the prophetic gift and each time he stood to minister, it was with utmost precision. " You are living at Umundula and you have been living with a man till the last four months but the man has never bothered to take you to any of his relatives yet he promised to marry you and you are even pregnant for the man",he averred. " Yes Reverend", Ifeoma replied. " Where exactly did he say he was going before he left", inquired the Reverend. "He said he was going to Bayelsa State to work ",said Ifeoma. "Has it not bothered you that your so called fiance has never introduced  you to any of his relatives",the Reverend inquired. " He said he would take me to his parents whom he said were living in Orlu, his home town but he kept postponing the visit", Ifeoma explained. " To tell you the truth ,you have been living with a ghost and if you doubt me, call him and see that his phone will not even ring talkless of picking the calls". Reverend Henshaw declared. 
At this stage members of the congregation were murmuring amongst themselves. What a revelation! How was such a thing possible? That someone would be living with a ghost and that the ghost would even be able to impregnate a human being. 
Reverend Henshaw continued thus, " I hope you know that you are the one that brought this calamity on yourself ", Ifeoma who was already shedding uncontrollable tears just nodded her head. " This challenge that you are facing now is as a result of your actions  some eight years ago. You dated a man whose name was Boniface and two of you were madly in love so you two entered into an oath which you sealed with each others blood that two of you must always be together  but a year later, Boniface died. It is this same Boniface that came back in human form to live with you and you ignorantly entered into an unholy relationship with him". At this point in time, the church was rowdy as there were displays of emotions some women were already crying as they couldn't conceal their emotions. Reverend Henshaw asked the congregation to stand up and pray against demonic manipulations. After the prayers, the Reverend Henshaw took his time to conduct deliverance for Ifeoma. After the deliverance, he admonished the congregation to always do the right thing in life to avoid putting themselves in a tight corner. He then made an alter call and many people gave their lives to Christ including Ifeoma. 

Ifeoma never received any call again from her fiance neither was she ever able to connect with him. With Ifeoma's new status as a born again Christian, she became committed to kingdom service in the Lord's vine yard. Each passing day, Her tummy enlarged more and more and was afraid of the seed in her womb. She started having strange dreams about Boniface  always attempting to force her to follow him to a particular route which she always declined. . She shared her dreams with the prayer band and members of the prayer band  continued to pray with her and a few months later, she gave birth but immediately after delivery,the child died. Ifeoma was not deterred. She was committed to kingdom service. She served God fervently and was eventually ordained an evangelist. She preached to all and sundry about holiness  and used herself as a case study. Many people gave their lives to Christ. Amongst those who gave there lives to Christ was Mr Magnus, a widower with two children. Mr Magnus not only repented, he saw Ifeoma as his future wife so he approached her and notified her about his intention. For three months, Ifeoma prayed about it and gave Mr Magnus her consent. Six months later, Mr Magnus and Ifeoma were lawfully wedded at the Royal house Ministry and the marriage was blessed with 3 children to the glory of God! 
Society Issues: We should all be mindful of the actions we take today so that we don't end up lamenting tomorrow.

Okorocha: Leaving a bird at hand for two in the bush

You  cannot truly say that you were not forewarned. You just chose to dance to the tune of the gods who subtly led you to this pathetic state. Oh!  How art the mighty fallen. But Okorocha, why did you choose to eat this toad? As a governor, you bluntly refused to align with the choice of your people by trying to force your son in-law on them. Those that came up with dissenting opinions were not spared including a Reverend father that was humiliated by your son in-law, Uche at a burial event. Oh history!  You hurriedly forgot that your predecessor also humiliated a Reverend father and eventually did not make it for a second term in office. As if that was not enough, you went about it as if installing your son in law was a do or die affair. You quarrelled with so many people for this same reason including political gladiators in your state. Those at the helm of affairs in your party were not spared. Your own was that your son  in law must be governor after you no matter whose ox was gored. At the end, your son in-law was defeated by Emeka Ihedioha. You also aspired to go to the Senate. With these two burdens at hand , you attempted to climb a tree. It could have been easier if your people truly supported you but lo and behold, they did not. So you placed the INEC collation officer under duress just for him to announce you as the senator elect for Imo west. After all said and done as at today,  your name is not on the list to be issued with a certificate of return in the next two days. All the tension and stress you went through just to achieve your aim proved to be an exercise in futility .It is tantamount to leaving a bird at hand for two in the bush.
You were one man that started so well but today, all your goodwill  has been forgotten due to your own  actions. Even if I should advice you now will you even listen? If you should stumble on this post please tell those that care to listen that leaving a bird at hand for two in the bush may not guarantee that you will custody the two in the bush. You may also add that, one may have the power, money, connections and political will but ultimately, what will be will be.

APC rejects result of gubernatorial elections in Akwa Ibom State.

The All Progressives Congress has rejected the results of the governorship election held in Akwa Ibom on saturday March 9, 2019.
This position was made known by the Akwa Ibom State governorship collation agent of APC Bishop Samuel Akpan who contended the authenticity of the result insisting that elections across the State were shambolic, gotten through fraud and malpractice  and therefore would never be accepted by APC in the State. He called for a cancellation of the result and was visibly angry.
Governor Udom Gabriel Emmanuel of the PDP polled a total number of 519,712 votes to defeat Obong Nsima Ekere of the APC who had 171,978 votes.
Ironically, reports gathered by Society Issues showed that the APC intimidated the INEC members of staff sent to Essien Udim including the adhock  staffs sent there. This was made known by the collation officer for Essien Udim, Barrister Nsikak Nsenam, a lecturer with the University of Uyo who spoke exhaustively about the treatment that they received courtesy of the APC. Despite the outcry the APC are still the same people complaining about election malpractices.

Online businesses: The good, the bad and the ugly

Many are living large due to proceeds they get through one online business or the other. Very true. Many have also lost all that they laboured for through one online business or the other. Statement of fact. The fact that your friend or colleague has made plenty of money through a particular online business should not be a yardstick for you to dabble into it. Take your time before you venture into it. In this piece, I  have penciled down some things an investor should bear in mind before starting an online business.
First and foremost, there is the need to establish the legality of a business and there are ways of doing so. One of such ways is by conducting a goggle search on the business you are about to embark upon .Through the goggle search, you can get more information about the business. Again, some of such businesses may have their Mobile App on goggle play store. If so, check for the ratings and comments by the users. The comments may help you to know more about the business.
Secondly, you may have been coming across some sponsored ads on social media where people brag about how they make a seven digit income daily,weekly and all of that. Folks be very careful about such temptations. Most of them turn up to be scams. If the person was actually making such money, trust me, they woudn't tell you about it. The chances of them being sincere is not in the offing. It is even easier for the camel to pass through the eyes of the middle than for them to teach you how to make money like they are claiming. Just imagine Coca cola  coming to facebook to tell you to join their whatsap or telegram group so that they can teach you how to produce coke, fanta and sprite. How is that possible? Folks who are you to them to expect such a privilege?  Their CEO or what. Use your brain.
Thirdly, anytime you go online and you see a mouth watering advert about you investing your money and getting back double or triple of the amount in 12 hours time, 24 hours or what have you. Biko run for your life. What are they investing the money in to yield such a high return on investment?  That is the question you should ask yourself before accepting such proposals. I  mean even certified money doublers can't do that for you. Again, trust me if they could actually double the money like they claim, they won't beg you to come and double your own money because they will first double theirs' and that of their siblings. Be wise
Online businesses can be very interesting and rewarding if you take your time to build it. You may not become rich overnight night but trust me, when you come up with good strategies, in the long run,you will break even. Some people have made good money through digital marketing, blogging, e-commerce, drop-shipping and even owning successful groups on social media. Others have dabbled into internet businesses and have been reduced to zero. That is the good, bad and ugly side of online businesses for you
Last line, genuine online businesses abound and it is possible to earn a living from it because the likes of Jumia, jiji, Alibaba express, Getconnected Telecommunications and even individuals like Linda Ikeji, Mark Zuckerberg and others have made it through the internet.
