Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) of banks, foreign government emissaries, captains of industry, development partner organisations and an array of stakeholders are expected to attend the forthcoming Aba Development Summit.

In a statement, Abia State government expressed its commitment to transforming the city of Aba to enable it realise its full potential. It said the development summit, holding in Aba, the state's commercial nerve centre, will be taking place from January 13 to 15.

A letter signed by the State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, explained that the summit is in line with one of the key cardinal development agendas of our administration which is to drive sustainable and all-inclusive development in Abia state. Aba, the commercial nerve of the state, when sustainably developed, will trigger development activities in other parts of the state.

The summit, being organised in partnership with the Ford Foundation, seeks to convey key policy makers, social, economic and technical experts and investors and entrepreneurs to discuss the key priorities and levers for unlocking the full potentials of Aba.

Ikpeazu said the summit is also expected to "showcase opportunities for the private sector and development community to partner Aba in particular and Abia more broadly to invest in the infrastructure, power, agriculture, manufacturing and services sectors.

Aside the expected participating stakeholders, the entire Abia State Executive Council and members of the Abia State House of Assembly, will make up the projected 300 participants, who must be invited guests.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
