2023: why i can’t Abandon Wike – Ortom
Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has revealed why he cannot abandon his friend, Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike.
He said the reason is because he has proved to be a trusted and dependable ally.
Ortom stated this at a banquet in honour of governors Wike, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Seyi Makinde and Okezie Ikpeazu on Sunday in Makurdi.
According to him, when bandits suspected to be Fulani herdsmen attacked him, Wike was the first person to condemn it.
“When Benue was under siege, he donated N250million and he subsequently spent over N700million to support the State to tackle the humanitarian crisis occasioned by the unwarranted attacks,” Ortom said.
“He didn’t stop at that. He convinced Governor Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom to also assist the State and he donated N200million to us.
“Is he not a worthy friend? He’s a worthy friend and we’re working together to liberate the country,” he added.
Ortom said that he wouldn’t support the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, stressing that any of Atiku’s supporters is his enemy.
“I’m not going to support any Fulani man to continue to do injustice to my people unless my people tell me to do otherwise,” Ortom said.
Responding on behalf of the visiting governors, Wike thanked Ortom for the honour he had given to them.
Wike said, “People want to break us but they cannot, we are bonded; therefore, we cannot be separated.”
Wike further advised the leadership of the PDP at the centre to always respect agreements for peace to reign.
I Prefer Kissing, S3x Scenes With Seasoned Actors – Nancy Isime
Popular actress and media personality, Nancy Isime has revealed how she feels acting s3x and scene kissing roles. She spoke during an interview with media personality, Dadaboy. According to her, she doesn’t enjoy acting such roles. She further explained that even if it looks good on screen, she prefers such scenes with seasoned actors who understand professionalism. She said, “Well, it’s a script, and Yes, I do kiss in movies. But Why will I enjoy it? 5,000 people around you. Enjoy what? I never enjoy doing nothing. There’s cameras around, it’s a scene. I prefer to actually have kissing scenes with seasoned actors who understand the professionalism of a kissing scene or a s3x scene. “S3x scene of course because everybody is all dressed up but there is movement. So there’s literally people who understand the job and are focused and are literally just running through a script.”
29 African Migrants trying to cross to Italy die as Boat Sinks in Tunisia
A boat carrying 29 African migrants trying to cross to Italy has capsized. Tunisia’s coast guard recovered 10 bodies from the migrant boat which sank near the coast, the second vessel to sink within hours off Tunisia, bringing the death toll to 29, according to a security official. According to Al Jazeera, Houssem Jebabli, a national guard official, said that the boat sank off the coast of Mahdia, without giving further details. Earlier on Sunday, a human rights group said at least 19 refugees and migrants from sub-Saharan Africa had drowned off the coast of Tunisia while trying to cross the Mediterranean and reach Italy. Romdhane Ben Amor, an official at the Forum for Social and Economic Rights (FTDES), told the Reuters news agency that the deaths also occurred when a boat carrying the refugees and migrants sank off the coast of Mahdia after a journey that started from Sfax beaches. He said the Tunisian coast guard was able to rescue five people from the boat. Tunisian authorities were not immediately available for comment. Reports of the deaths came as Italy’s ANSA news agency said more than 2,000 asylum seekers had arrived on the Italian island of Lampedusa within 24 hours. The agency described the arrivals on Saturday as a “record”. In the last four days, at least five boats carrying refugees and migrants have sunk off the southern city of Sfax, leaving 67 missing and nine dead. The coast guard previously said it had stopped about 80 boats heading for Italy in the past four days and detained more than 3,000 people, mostly from sub-Saharan African countries. The coast near Sfax has become a major departure point for people fleeing poverty and conflict in Africa and the Middle East in the hope of a better life in Europe. The latest disaster comes amid a campaign of arrests by Tunisian authorities of undocumented sub-Saharan Africans. According to United Nations data, at least 12,000 people who reached Italy this year set sail from Tunisia, compared with 1,300 in the same period of 2022. Previously, Libya was the main departure point for refugees and migrants.
