 I wrestled with the devils - Olisa Metuh reflects on his life in prison

Olisa Metuh, the former spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has said that he will use the rest of his life serving God and mankind, revealing that he saw hell while he was in prison.

 

Metuh spent 10 months at the National Correctional Centre, Kuje, FCT over issues bordering on money laundering and was released on December 24, 2020.

 

Speaking during a reception organised for him by the PDP in Awka, the Anambra State capital on Wednesday, February 24, Metuh said he saw hell in prison and has learnt how to serve God and humanity.

“I have been to the lowest, deepest end of the valley. I have wrestled with the demons. I wrestled with the devils. The Almighty God has saved me. For that, I commit the rest of my life to the service of God and the people. It is not easy. It is just like being in your house and an armed robber comes to your house, takes away all your earnings, beats you up, violate your wife, deal with your children and you can’t do anything because he has the gun. When we have power, we should know how to use it because there is God in heaven. At the end of the day, all of us will die,” he said

 

Metuh said while in prison, he learnt to be humble and to forgive people. He urged people to try to forgive one another.

Cattle traders begin strike today

 

Cattle traders begin strike today

Cattle and Foodstuff dealers under the aegis of Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria (AUFCDN) on Thursday February 25, began a nationwide strike following the expiration of a seven-day ultimatum given to the federal government to attend to their demands.

 

The union had demanded payment of N475 billion compensation for lives of members and properties lost during the #EndSARS protest and Shasa market chaos, and dismantling of all road blocks on federal highways due to problems its members get subjected to when carrying out their duties.

 

Grand Matron of AUFCDN, Hajia Hauwa Kabir Usman who announced commencement of the strike asked the police not to disturb task force of the union who will carry out enforcement of the strike by ensuring that no food and cattle were moved from North to the South.

 

Usman said; 

 

“The leadership of the union has already made a strong plan to ensure that all our exits (our borders) between the Northern and Southern part are closed.

“Every truck that will go out has to be checked. If you carry any food or cattle, you cannot take it out except you take it back or be destroyed there. None of the security agents should dare intimate our task force members because if they do, we will fight it legally.”

 

Usman who recalled how they gave a 21-day ultimatum to the federal government, vowed that the union would not compromise on its demands.

Before we talk of amnesty, there should be clear evidence that there’s a sincere repentance - Former Catholic archbishop of Abuja Archdiocese, John Onaiyekan

 


Before we talk of amnesty, there should be clear evidence that there?s a sincere repentance - Former Catholic archbishop of Abuja Archdiocese, John Onaiyekan

Former Catholic archbishop of Abuja Archdiocese, John Onaiyekan has stated that amnesty should only be granted when there is clear evidence of repentance. 

 

Onaiyekan who appeared on a Channels Television program on Wednesday February 24, averred that while he believes criminals should be forgiven when they repent, the problem he has is figuring out if it is true repentance. 

 

He went on to list measures that should be taken if the repentance has been verified. The former archbishop said; 

 

“I believe firmly in what the Bible says that it is not the will of God that a sinner should die but that he should repent and live. So obviously, if a criminal sincerely repents, he should be forgiven. But the question is when it comes to the real facts of whether he has repented or not, the state must have a way of making sure that this is not a joke.

“The whole idea of amnesty is not only to be applied to armed bandits, in that case it is true for everybody in jail in Nigeria. For the sake of law and order, to protect the rest of us, the few who are making life difficult have to be restrained. The armed dogs should be tied down. The armed bandits should be disarmed.

“Before we talk of amnesty, there should be clear evidence that there’s a sincere repentance and that the people concerned have decided not to pick up arms anymore, that they’re ready to go back to their normal way of life and if they’re foreigners, they’re ready to go back home. All this must be part and parcel of the process of amnesty.

“The bandits must be reconciled with society, they must change, they must decide to be really repentant and show it clearly. And not be put in a position to brag around to appear that they have actually won, and defeated the nation.”

 

He added that dialogue with criminals should be carried in a way that will not make others take up arms with hope of also getting amnesty. 

 

Onaiyekan added; 

 

“I don’t think we should reach a stage where the nation simply says we’re unable to deal with the situation. We should be able to deal with it and on one hand, we must be open to amnesty, forgiveness, and on the other hand, we need to keep law and order and not make it an incentive for others to pick up arms and wait for amnesty and rehabilitation."

 Pope Francis appoints Prof. Roberto Bernabei as new doctor after previous one died from Covid-19

Pope Francis has appointed a new personal doctor weeks after the previous one died from Covid-19.

 

The 84-year-old pontiff picked professor Roberto Bernabei, an expert in health care for the elderly, as his physician, the Vatican said in a statement on Wednesday, February 24.

 

Bernabei, 69, leads the geriatrics and rehabilitative medicine department at Rome's Gemelli, the Catholic hospital where popes are traditionally treated. 

 

The last papal doctor, Fabrizio Soccorsi, died aged 78 on January 9 of Covid-19-related pulmonary complications, following a hospitalisation for cancer.

Francis is believed to be in relative good health, despite having had part of his lung removed when he was a young man after developing pleurisy.

 

Last month, he cancelled several events due to a chronic nerve condition that causes hip pain and makes him walk with a slight limp. 

 

The pope later received the coronavirus vaccine alongside his predecessor, former pope Benedict XVI.

Cosmetic surgery:

Toke Makinwa took to her Twitter handle this afternoon to send a memo to men who feel women undergo domestic surgeries so they can look good for them.

 

Toke's tweets read

''Overhead a couple of guys talking about women and cosmetic surgery, dear men, I know you love to think that the whole existence of a woman is to pursue you or try to live for you but pls take this from me, women are doing things to look good for themselves, it ain’t about you.

That boob job is not for you, maybe she loves how her boobs look in cloths, that liposuction??? She wasn’t thinking of a man, she probably got tired of fighting fat that won’t shift. Women look good for themselves and not to impress men.''
