The Imo state government starts crackdown of child Labour through hawking and loitering.

   The policy was initiated to lessen the danger posed by minors lingering the state.  The shared prosperity administration is geared towards taking a harder stance on child Labour which will include taking into custody and prosecution of parents and guardians to children engaged in breach of child rights through child Labour of hawking and loitering.  The first lady of Imo state offered assistance through the commissioner for women affairs and vulnerable groups Lady Nkechinyere Ugwu   to those who were removed the streets and to ensure that the children are in school and not avenue for economic exploitation. #HopeNewAndElectronicMediaCenter

HON. KAMEN CHUKS OGBONNA: Senator Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah's social media Field Marshall.

By Vincent Obiora  In a few weeks from now, the 10th National Assembly will be inaugurated. Among the many that will be inaugurated on that day is the indefatigable Prince of the Senate, Senator Dr. Patrick IFEANYI UBAH whose victory at the last senatorial elections in Anambra South Senatorial Zone was massive. Ubah's victory was the result of his hard work, faith, strategic communication, ingenuity,  political prowess, and it serves as a remarkable case study for political students due to its distinct peculiarities of coming from a relatively young party to defeat back to back or if you like Home and away those who believes they own Anambra politics particularly Anambra South Senatorial Zone. The success of the YPP in Anambra South Senatorial Zone was greatly influenced by UBAH Nation media team engagements largely on the social media.  And this onerous social media task was well cordinated by this social media strategist and Guru Hon Kamen Chuks. He was in charge of developing th


The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC (EEDC) wishes to inform her esteemed customers in Imo State that the loss of supply currently being experienced is as a result of an industrial action by organised labour comprising the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), over alleged “violent disruption and unprovoked assault on Imo State workers by agents of Imo State Government during the May Day celebration”. After its joint Central Working Committee (CWC) meeting on Monday, the organized labour resolved that “all affiliates of both NLC and TUC in Imo State are to withdraw their services beginning from 12 midnight on Tuesday”.   Consequently, the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), which is EEDC’s primary source of power supply, was forced to shut down in the state this morning by 00:00 hours. As a result of this development, all customers of EEDC in Imo State under its Owerri, New Owerri, Orlu, and Mbaise districts are out of electricity supply. We are

The adoption according to the NLC Imo Chapter is a testament to his administration's commitment to improving the lives of workers in the state through several policy implementations on workers' welfare which includes the prompt payment of salaries up to the 13th month, regular payment of pensions, free transportation, promotions after more than ten years among many other things.  Governor Uzodimma in his address commended the NLC Imo State Chapter, referring to the adoption as "the mother of all endorsements.  While promising more welfare packages for Imo workers, the Governor also announced the free medical healthcare insurance scheme for all Imo workers for all types of illnesses except

Ifeanyi Ubah's Clever Blend Of Advanced Artificial Intelligence With Native Technology In Tackling Insecurity In Anambra South, A Master Stroke

  By Kamen Chuks Ogbonna  Safety,in its wildest sense ,concerns the happiness, contentment, and freedom of mankind. The highest law of any society should be hinged upon the safety and security of the citizenry. Security sets the tone for the economic growth and deployment of basic amenities in any sane society  The decision taken by the Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District,Senator(Dr.) Ifeanyi Ubah, to personally take up the responsibility of championing the cause of eradicating insecurity from the zone is a highly timely and welcome development.  The effect of the criminal activities that ravaged the zone in the last few years has been devastating, to say the least. While the indices of lives of youths lost in the zone are alarming, and the general feeling of insecurity has had a negative impact on the socio-economic development of the area. Senator Ifeanyi Ubah's decision to tackle insecurity using a combination of advanced artificial intelligence and native tec


By Collins Ughalaa KSC The news about the Imo charter of equity, as recommended by the Imo State Council of Elders after their meeting of Thursday, April 13, 2023, is exciting in many ways. For over two decades, Imo people have clamoured for a zoning arrangement where the governorship and other top government offices are equitably shared among the three zones, namely: Orlu Zone, Owerri Zone and Okigwe Zone based on a charter of equity. The clamour for a zoning arrangement never materialised as previous administrations paid no serious attention to the subject matter. If you paid closer attention to the ways governors emerged so far in Imo, it has always been decided by the votes of the people and not on a charter of equity. If an open contest for the governorship seat continues, it will encourage a rancorous scrambling for power and destroy brotherhood.  To promote peace, enhance unity, and reduce rancour in our politics, therefore, zoning the governorship and other top political office


Global association of concerned Imo youths has condemned in strong terms the fabricated story of the attack of governor Hope Uzodinma's convoy yesterday and is also calling for their prompt arrest. In a press statement made available by it's director of press, Dr Haluchi Ikemefuna reads thus "The prompt refutal of a purported gun attack on the motorcade of Governor Hope Uzodinma is apt, but we want the full weight of the law to descend on the culprit(s) to serve as a deterrent. Obviously the story is false. But what is true is that the fake news was invented, volleyed into cyberspace and viciously shared by cyber terrorists calling themselves the opposition. The statement stressed that, while such disinformation is not new, the detractors spawned it nonetheless hoping to eclipse the record-setting airlift of the first batch of 1000 Imo pilgrims to the holy lands which the governor facilitated barely 24hrs. "This event is unprecedented and continues to dominate discuss
