A chieftain of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) and lawmaker in the Rivers State House of Assembly, Micheal Chinda, has appealed to politicians to endeavour to fulfill promises made to their constituents.
Chinda who represents Obio/Akpor Constituency 2 in the 32-member legislature made the appeal during the 2020 mothering Sunday celebration at the St. Michael Anglican Church in Ozuoba, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.
He said God is not kind to those who make vows in the House of God without honouring same, urging politicians in the state who have made such vows to try and redeem them in order to attract blessings from God.
“I am using this opportunity to call on my friends, politicians, those who have made vow to this Church to fulfil their vow. The book of Ecclesiastics chapter 5 verse 4, if you read it you will find that God is not kind, to those who made vow and abandoned it.
“It is worse especially in the house of God. So they (politicians) should try and fulfil their vows,” Chinda stated, just as he advised women to emulate the life of the Biblical Abigail so as to receive God’s blessings.
The lawmaker further said, “I have come to felicitate with our women and as God has given us not only life to live, but to serve him, honour him and do his work. How do we do the work of God, we do it either when we are given position to perform in the church or when we are called upon to support financially. You heard the sermon on the life of Abigali which women have been charged to emulate. That is the summary of it all.”

Bode George Urges FG To Relax Lagos Lockdown
A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George has urged federal government to relax the lockdown it imposed on Lagos State as a result of COVID- 19 pandemic.
George, who made the call in a statement in Lagos, yesterday said the lockdown imposed since March 29 was adversely affecting livelihoods and bringing up security challenges.
He said though government intended to curb the spread of the virus with the lockdown, the directive had left many Nigerians hungry at home without palliatives.
The PDP chieftain noted that there must be a balance between curbing the spread of the virus and protecting livelihoods and asked the government to relax the lockdown while putting safety measures in place.
“Everywhere in Lagos is now locked down. The markets, banking halls, the local grocery shops, the supermarkets, the transportation services are all halted, frozen by the federal government directives since March 29.
“On the surface level, the federal government’s position is to ensure safety, prevent communal spread of the virus and banish this scourge from our shores.
“Lagosians have been staying at home for about a month now. In a largely informal economy where most of our people depend on daily wages, the burden of lack of income is devastating.
“There is a natural growing anger in Lagos as the most vulnerable are ravaged with hunger,” George said.
