There's a Clear Division Between Nnamdi Kanu and His Father - Gov. Ikpeazu Speaks After Visit to Aso Rock

Gov. Ikpeazu speaking to journalists
 
Speaking while fielding questions from state house correspondents after a meeting with Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday, the governor of Abia state, Okezie Ikpeazu, said there is a clear division between Nnamdi Kanu, and his father who is the traditional ruler of Afarakwu community in Umuahia, the state capital.
 
The governor made the revelation in a swift reaction when some journalitsts asked him about the demand of a youth group seeking the dethronement of the father of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) 
 
Ikepazu said; “I clearly separate Kanu from his father. The processes of handling traditional institutions are enshrined in the laws of our land.

“And traditional rulers who are members of our constituency have the leadership they will do the needful at the appropriate time. But for me, I think there is a clear division between Nnamdi Kanu and his father.”
 
According to TheCable, the governor accused IPOB of attempting to set the country on fire, saying God used some instruments to keep the country as one, and assured residents of his state of their safety, adding that the economy of Abia would suffer if “if we make our kitchen the theater of Biafra”.

“Nigerians know that for some time now that this group called IPOB was agitating for a separate nation called Biafra and that the home state of the leader of that group happens to be Abia state,” he said.
 
“As expected, when such things happen there is an interface between some members of that group and the military, and the theater was Abia state. And some people attempted to hijack that event to conflagrate our country. To the glory of God the rest is history, we are still working to stabilise the fragile peace in the region. I thank God also for the instruments he used to be able to keep our country as one. We are humbled by the privileges.

“I will continue to protect the lives and property of my brothers and sisters irrespective of where they come from. You know that the mainstay of our economy in Abia state is trade and commerce and I do not think it will augur well for our economy.”

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage. Atten-ding seminars and reading books on marriage are good, I told her; but where you can know and be pr-oud of living confidently in marriage is when you enter into the reality of marriage. This is w…
