The climax of the celebration which took place at the Central State School I, Emohua field, was the signing of the peace accord by the leaders of the cult groups and the conferment of ‘Ohna’ the highest traditional title in Emohua Clan on Chief (Hon) Sergeant Awuse by the Emohua monarch, HRM Eze V.C.B. Okor, (Mgbo Xii) in recognition of his bold action in resolving the cult clashes and restoring peace in Emohua community.
Eze V.C.B Okor said that apart from this laudable achievement, Awuse had worked tirelessly towards the development of the community and youth empowerment, hence the people of Emohua decided to honour him with the prestigious title a s a token reward for his selfless service to the people.
The monarch commended the Rivers State Governor, Chief (Barr) Nyesom Wike for siting two faculties of the Rivers State University at Emohua. He stated that the gesture would not only usher in employment of the youths, but also bring about rapid development of the area. He stressed that with the return of peace, Emohua Clan would soon be transformed into a modern city in the nearest future.
Speaking at the event, the chairman of Emohua Local Government Area (EMOLGA), High Chief Tom Aliezi thanked the cult groups for embracing peace and assured that if the peace accord was maintained till the end of July, he would set up a security committee with two representatives from each of the eight villages that make up Emohua clan as members to work in synergy with security operatives in the local government to ensure that the peace accord was sustained.
The chairman who congratulated Chief Awuse for championing the reconciliation process and the successful signing of the peace accord by the cult groups, promised that the repetant cultists would be rehabilitated, but warned that after the peace accord anyone who involved in any form of criminality would be arrested by security operatives and punished in accordance with the law.
In his response, Ohna (Sir) Sergeant Awuse noted that the celebration was as a result of the success of the series of meetings he held with the cultists who assured him that they had decided to shun cultism and to cease fire. “Today we are saying bye bye to cultism, kidnapping, armed robbery and other social vices in Emohua community”, Awuse declared.
Ohna Awuse, a frontline politician and business mogul, thanked God for the success recorded. He also lauded the efforts of a prominent youth leader in Emohua, Mr Delight Ihiechi Olomi for contributing immensely to the peace process.
The cult leaders who exchanged pleasantries at the event after signing the peace accord later went to the popular hangovers in the villages where they wined, dined and danced till dawn.

Published

Two of Nigeria’s biggest brands are teaming up for a mega opportunity to discover new music talents across the country. The new talent hunt – Access The Stars-sponsored by Star Lager Beer and Access Bank will give exceptional Nigerians the chance to be refined, and empowered to reach superstar status in the music industry.
In addition to the fame of winning the hunt, the sponsors will give monetary awards of up to N150 million, to the winners of the hunt which will kick off this October.
Speaking on the initiative, Herbert Wigwe, Access Bank MD/CEO stated that Access The Stars is borne out of the desire of both brands to continue to connect with people through the one platform they both have in common which is music. “Both our brands share a long history of creating excellent musical experiences for not just own customers, but the wider Nigerian audience and this is us expanding on that,’’ he said.
Access The Stars comes from the desire of both brands to continue to connect with people through the one platform they both have in common – music. Access Bank and Star Lager Beer share a long history of creating excellent music experiences for not just their consumers, but for the wider Nigerian audience.
Star Lager Beer is a well-known name in the Nigerian music scene, with hit concerts like Star Music – The Trek, Star Mega Jam, and famous talent show, Star Quest which was a launchpad for the likes of Kcee, DJ Switch and many more. With their concerts, the brand took stars around the country and gave them the platform to entertain fans in different cities.
Access Bank on the other hand recently made their foray fully into music with the Born in Africa Festival (BAFEST). The much talked about concert had a long list of top-rated stars in Nigeria’s music scene perform at a brilliantly produced event by Livespot360. Before this time, the bank has been a major sponsor of other concerts around the country and is now putting its full weight behind what would most likely be the biggest event in 2019.
Alongside the hunt for new talents, Access The Stars will also reward fans with music performances from A-list artistes in each city the discovery train hits. Much like the now-defunct Star Music – The Trek, acts such as Tiwa Savage, Burna Boy, Flavour, Phyno, Olamide, Kcee, and more will perform in different cities as Access Bank and Star Lager Beer tour Nigeria to in search of new talents.
Hosting Access The Stars will be music superstar Dare Art Alade, with television host and radio personality, Olive Emodi as co-host. Choreographer and CEO Imagneto Dance Company, Kaffy, Nigerian Music Producer, Tee-Y Mix and Nigerian Music Star, Seyi Shay will judge the talents to be found across Nigeria.
During a press conference to announce the event, Managing Director/CEO, Nigerian Breweries, Mr. Jordi Borrut Bel, said; “we have done this before, but this time, we want to bring something new and more entertaining to our consumers, where they not only enjoy good music but get the opportunity to have their own voices and music showcased to the rest of the world. We are really excited about this”.
