The Rivers Equity Group, last Wednesday, landed in Okrika Local Government Area in Rivers State with its message of free medical outreach in collaboration with the Linsolar Eye Clinic.
The Rivers Equity Group led by Hon. Elder Clapton Ogolo and assisted by Sir John Nalley, on arrival at Okrika Island were warmly received by the Council Chairman, Hon. Akuro Tobin, in the company of his Vice, Hon. Charity Igbulubo, and other council officials and political appointees.
Briefing the council chairman, the Deputy Leader of the group, Sir J.P. Nalley, said that the group’s mission to Okrika was to ensure that the people get free medical attention, adding that the programme was in series across the 23 local governments aimed at reaching out to the people to cater for their healthcare needs, especially their eyes and to enlighten them on the Electoral Act, the importance of the PVC, non-violent elections, and the need to live healthy and stay alive to enjoy the dividends of democratic governance.
He expressed expectation that, by the grace of God, the gubernatorial candidate of the PDP in the upcoming 2023 governorship electionin Rivers State, Sir Siminialayi Fubara, would deliver good governance to the people, if elected.
Furthermore, he said that the free medical outreach was a divinely inspired project fully endorsed by Fubara, who he said, agrees with and fully supports the project as it was an avenue to not just go and enlighten the people but to also accompany it with value in the form of free medical outreach to indigent people across the state.
He thanked the chairman with his team and the good people of Okrika for the warm and superlative welcome accorded the Rivers Equity Group.
In his response, e Okrika Council Chairman, Hon. Akuro Tobin, expressed joy that the project has reached his people, and thanked the Rivers Equity Group for coming to reach out to the people of Okrika through such a laudable programme.
He said that Okrika was a complete PDP territory, adding that so long as the group was backed by Fubara, Okrika was with PDP and would stand with Fubara and all PDP candidates in the forthcoming 2023 general election.
He said that with the good works of Governor Nyesom Wike all over the state and his complementary efforts in the area,Okrika people were at home with the PDP, and had no alternative but the PDP and PDP alone.
During a town hall meeting, Tobin, told his people that the group was backed by Sir Siminialayi Fubara, who was the governorship candidate of the PDP for the 2023 gubernatorial election in the state.
He explained that with SIM as the incoming governor of the state, better days were on the horizon.
He charged the people to ensure that all hands were on deck to secure convincing victory for Fubara and other PDP candidates for the sustenance and consolidation of the giant strides in every sector of the economy of the state under the NEW Rivers Vision of Chief Nyesom Wike.
The chairman also promised that the council would take care of the bill for the treatment of those whose cases need referral as he also requested the Rivers Equity Group to come back for a repeat free medical outreach in the area so as to extend the gesture to more people in the area.
Thereafter, Tobin declared open the free medical outreach programme as he personally handed over free eyeglasses and drugs to a select 20 beneficiaries, just as he inspected the medical facilities of the partners of the team, Linsolar Eye Clinic.
He also took advantage of the moment to get his eyes tested, and was given a suitable prescribed pair of eyeglasses.
Earlier, the CEO of Linsolar Eye Clinic, Dr. Adeline Aluge, gave a brief talk on the medical services expected and procedures.
She also admonished the people to always avoid practices that were capable of damaging their eyes and always seek proper medical help for sustained healthy eyes, even as she said that to vote right, the eyes were important to avoid wasting their votes.
Earlier, the group had proceeded along with the Okrikacouncil chairman on separate courtesy visits to the Amanyanabo of Okochiri Kingdom, King Ateke Michael Tom, and Amanyanabo of Kirike Kingdom, Air Commodore T.E.O. Ogube (rtd).
At the palaces of the two kings, the group was warmly welcomed, just as its leaders, Elder Clapton Ogolo and BarristerEmekaIchoku, briefed the monarchs on the mission of the Rivers Equity Group to Okrika.
The message was the same – reaching the unreached indigent citizens with care for their health – especially their eyes, as well as enlighten them on the Electoral Act and an admonition to shun electoral violence.
In their separate responses at their different palaces, the monarchs’ messages were the same.
They appreciated the group for the lofty project they had embarked on, especially as it was geared towards helping the poor masses.
They blessed the group for the successful execution of the project, and declared support of Okrika people for the candidature of Sir SiminialayiFubara.
They also admonished the group to carry on with the good works, especially to amplify the message of non-violence and peaceful coexistence.
The medical care included treatments, drugs administration, free eyeglasses,while more serious cases were referred for further medical attention.

Ghana Expresses Regrets Over Travel Advisory On Abuja

The Ghanaian government has expressed regrets over its travel advisory to its citizens to keep away from Abuja, the capital of Nigeria.
Ghana’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration said that it was unaware of the threat to its citizens in Nigeria’s seat of power and regrets the inconveniences its earlier travel advisory ‘may have caused to the travelling public.’
Recall that earlier, the ministry in its travel advisory, last Wednesday, had warned its citizens to avoid non-essential travels to Abuja, citing terrorism, kidnapping and other forms of insecurity as serious concerns.
But in a follow-up advisory, yesterday, tagged, ‘Re: Security Update in Abuja, Nigeria’, which the ministry issued to ‘all media houses,’ the Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration Ministry, said it is not aware of any threat targeted at Ghanaians ‘who continue to live in harmony with their Nigerian brothers and sisters.’
The statement reads: “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration wishes to refer to the travel advisory published this evening, Wednesday, November 16, 2022, advising against non-essential travel to Abuja and wishes to state that the statement was unauthorised.
“The ministry is not aware of any threat targeted at Ghanaians who continue to live in harmony with their Nigerian brothers and sisters.

Chairman, National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Brig-Gen.Mohammed Buba Marwa (rtd), has said that drugs would be purchased by desperate politicians and be shared to youths.
Marwa also condemned the use of illicit drugs, especially Canabis Sativa, to cook food.
He spoke, yesterday, in Lagos at the 10th Anniversary Lecture and Investiture into the Hall of Fame organised by Real news, an online publishing outfit.
“People use drugs to prepare cookies, pepper soup, among others. This is dangerous and condemnable,” he declared.
The theme of the programme was “Drug Abuse Among Youths in Africa: Implications for Nigeria Economy and 2023 elections”.
He regretted that traffickers had continued to manufacture and share illicit drugs in spite of NDLEA’s efforts to tackle the menace.
Marwa said that the agency would not relent in its war on the drug barons, declaring that NDLEA would “fight them to the end”.
He also vowed that the agency would prosecute drug peddlers and users so as to rid the country of drugs.
He regretted that more than 10.6million youths were illicit drugs consumers.
Marwa also announced that 19,000 illicit drug offenders had been arrested in the last 22 months, with 3,011 offenders prosecuted.
On the implications of illicit drug consumption by youths on the 2023 elections, he said that drugs would be purchased by desperate politicians and be shared to youths they want to use.
He regretted that some Nigerians were pushing for the legalisation of Cannabis.
“Some top Nigerians are canvassing for liberalisation of Marijuana. They want to be allowed to plant it.
“This sends wrong signals to Nigerian youths; they are being encouraged to keep doing something wrong.
“Instead of seeking to legalise it, people should support us to battle this ugly monster,” he said.
Marwa warned of heinous consequences by 2030, if stakeholders refused to rise up to fight illicit drug consumption by year 2030.
“If we don’t fight hard, the situation in the country may be pathetic in 2030.
“By 2030, the consumption of illicit drugs, if not checked, will rise by 40per cent in Africa and Nigeria may be the worst hit,” he said.
Earlier in her address, the Publisher of RealNews, Mrs Maureen Ochigbo, had regretted the high consumption of illicit drugs by youths, and described the situation as scary and disheartening.
“The current state of consumption of illicit drugs by Nigerian youths is disheartening.
“These youths are losing their potentials to serve the nation; this is worrisome,” she said.

AMEA Power, one of the fastest growing renewable energy companies in the Middle East, has confirmed the signing of a Framework Agreement with the Government of Egypt to develop a 1,000MW green hydrogen project, for the production of green ammonia focused on the export market.
Announced on the sidelines of the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) in Sharm El-Sheikh, the project would support the long term vision of Egypt to become a hub for green hydrogen production.
AMEA Power has partnered with the Sovereign Fund of Egypt, the Egyptian Electricity Transmission, the New and Renewable Energy Authority, and the Suez Canal Economic Zone to deliver the project.
Chairman of AMEA Power, Hussain Al-Nowais, said: “The world is entering a new era of clean energy deployment, where emerging solutions like green hydrogen will present huge opportunities for investment, job creation and countries like Egypt to become major hubs for clean energy.
“AMEA Power is committed to working with its partners to help deliver the global energy transition and support emerging markets to advance their economic and social development. This project is the first of several large scale clean energy projects that AMEA Power will develop across the region as the company enters a new phase in its journey and begins to scale up operations across Africa.”
Located at the coastal town of Ain Sokhna in the Suez Governorate, the green hydrogen project will have a capacity to produce 800,000tonnes of green ammonia per year for domestic and international export.
The clean energy project is aligned with the Integrated Sustainable Energy Strategy (ISES) set out by the Egyptian government, which aims to reach renewable energy targets of 42percent by 2035.
Chief Executive Officer of the Sovereign Fund of Egypt, Ayman Soliman, said: “This great success marks a major milestone for Egypt’s green strategy and was only possible with the persistence of all government sponsors and the partners’ belief in the potential of Egypt as a green hydrogen hub.
“Egypt has put a tremendous effort in the development of its Green Hydrogen Programme and has made incredible progress reaching this stage in a matter of months. The signing of this binding agreement is a testament to TSFE’s ability to execute on its role in attracting private investment into strategic sectors. It comes in-line with TSFE’s decarbonisation strategy using sustainable means that benefit the economy and position Egypt as a regional green energy hub”.
AMEA Power is in advanced discussions with a number of European, Chinese and Japanese companies to secure a long-term offtaker for the green ammonia.
AMEA Power is also discussing with Egyptian Hydrocarbon Corporation in Egypt to potentially provide it with a portion of the green hydrogen production to support the development of green industries in the country.
AMEA Power has already completed a feasibility study for the project, which was conducted by a selected group of international advisors in the different areas – legal, technical and financial. Front End Engineering Design (FEED) is scheduled to start in January 2023, with a Final Investment Decision expected within the next 24 – 36 months.
The plant will be developed in two 500MW phases to de-risk the project and ensure it benefits from technology efficiency improvements and declining equipment prices.
Operations on the first phase of the project are expected to commence in 2027.
AMEA Power is rapidly expanding its investments in wind, solar, energy storage and green hydrogen, demonstrating its long term commitment to the global energy transition.
The company has a clean energy pipeline of nearly 6GW across 15 countries, including several large scale projects in Egypt.
The company is at advanced stages with its 500MW Abydos Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Plant, which is located within the Aswan Governorate, and the 500MWAmunet Wind Farm, located within the Red Sea Governorate.
Headquartered in Dubai, AMEA Power is a developer, owner and operator of renewable energy projects.
As one of the fastest growing renewable energy companies in the region, AMEA Power has assembled a world class team of industry experts to deliver projects across Africa, the Middle East and other emerging markets.
