NNU Women Wing, in commemoration of International Women’s Day, celebrated and honored the First Lady of Delta State, Her Excellency, Dame Edith Okowa as Philanthropist of the year 2022. This, according to the NNU National Woman Leader, Prof. Julie N.E. Umukoro, is to mark the First Lady’s meritorious years of dedicated service to health and wellness, in Delta State, particularly in the area of managing sickle cell disease. The import of the Ndokwa women’s choice to celebrate the marvelous contributions of Her Excellency, the First Lady of Delta State, on International Women’s Day, cannot elude those who have followed keenly the antecedents to the positive developments in the health sector she spearheaded. The impact of her novel contributions to health and wellness in Delta State, Nigeria, particularly in engineering the building of sickle cell clinics across the Local Government Areas (LGA) of Delta State cannot also elude the keen observer. To date, 19 out of the 25 existing Local Government Areas of Delta State, own one, courtesy of Dame Edith Okowa’s vision. Her promise to get all LGAs in the Delta States to have a sickle cell clinic before the expiration of her tenure as First Lady of Delta State is already 80% fulfilled while still in office. That makes a monumental national statement about the capacity of Her Excellency, Dame Edith Okowa. Thus, Ndokwa women believe that such great and remarkable achievements by a woman are worth celebrating on a day marked out for the recognition of womanhood worldwide. To the Ndokwa women who already can boast of two sickle cell clinics sited in two out of their three Local Government Areas, Dame Edith Okowa is a role model and an inspiration to all women, particularly persons in positions of power who are expected to use their positions faithfully to engineer peace, progress, and unity. Dame Edith Okowa, for her monumental achievements to health and wellness in Delta State, deserves to be celebrated. NNU Women Wing and by extension, all Ndokwa women, have unanimously voted and declared Her Excellency, Dame Edith Okowa, __Philanthropist of the Year_on March 8th, 2022, to mark International Women’s Day. The event was rounded off with a lecture titled, ‘Countering the menace of the sickle cell anemia in Nigeria: Dame Edith Okowa’s vision and delivered by Mrs. Bibiana Shonibare, the NNU Woman Coordinator, Abuja branch.

I’m Married But I Want To Help My Ex Financially
I ended the relationship with My ex due to her bad characters. And then I later got married.
While we were dating I wanted to get my ex a place for her to stay due to d fact Dat she doesn’t have anywhere to go when she graduates.
Both of her parents are divorced and remarried with kids. She can’t go back to her father’s house because he harrases her sexually and his wife his not welcoming. She can’t go to her mother’s house cus her stepfather won’t agree. During d time we were dating she was staying with me for this reason but as soon as she got into school her character changed so I ended it all.
Now think of her predicament I’m thinking of getting her d house I promised so as for her not to go back to her dad’s house. I have the money to do it that’s not a problem.
I’m still having second thoughts though. Abi Make I just use my money package myself

While assuring that the projects, and indeed others initiated by his administration across the state, would be completed before the end of his tenure of office, Senator Okowa thanked Ndokwa youths for their peaceful disposition, which had aided the smooth execution of projects in the area.
The Governor commended one of his aides, Honourable Nnamdi Ezechi, for diligently serving the interest of youths, particularly of the Ndokwa nation, noting that he had always carried the youths along and vigorously sensitizing them on government policies and programmes.
Okowa, who announced the approval of five Special Assistant slots for the visiting youths, stated that Ndokwa sons holding key positions in his cabinet had contributed immensely to the success story of his administration and promised to continue to partner with people of the area in his determination to finish strong.
Earlier, the Chairman, Board of Trustees of Ikolobie Ndokwa and Executive Assistant to the Governor on Youth Development, Honourable Nnamdi Ezechi, who led the delegation, thanked me Governor for all he had been doing for the people of Ndokwa nation, citing the execution of key projects, including the ongoing Beneku bridge and road project, the Kwale Industrial Park, as well as the appointment of Chief Fidelis Tilije, Chief Festus Ochonogor, Chief Chika Ossai and Sir Monday Onyeme to key positions in government.
Also speaking, the President General of Ikolobie Ndokwa, Comrade Anslem Nzete and spokesperson for the group, Comrade Fidelis Azaka, urged the Governor to prevail on the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) to increase the quantum of oil and gas in Ndokwa land in view of the huge reserves of the natural resources in the area, among other requests.
While pledging continued support for the state government, the duo disclosed plans by the group to embark on a sensitization tour of all the wards in Ndokwa land ahead of the 2023 elections.
