Reach For The STARS Because You Are A STAR!



Tribute To The Queen Elizabeth II

          By Praise Victoria Abraham

Life sometimes throws us dirt, at various times in our lives.  Sometimes it starts in our tender years and other times it starts when we are teenagers. The truth is that some people suffer their dirt-throwing situations as adults and we have cases of people who have been covered in dirt all their lives.

We all have issues in life and we all go through difficult and traumatic situations. if you have already gone through yours and you survived give great thanks to the living God for the great victories and great escape.

In life we deal with issues of low self-esteem, early failures in life, severe rejection, setbacks and defeat. Everybody has to deal with some form of trauma or another and the only difference is that it comes to us  at different levels and differing degrees in the course of our lives.

We must find ways to deal with our dirt in life either through counselling, medical interventions or through the simple power of prayers. The truth is that sometimes we need to combine all the different methods of interventions to heal from the dirt that life and people throw at us.

The earlier we heal the better for our psyche. We need to heal to live. We need to heal to soar.  We need to heal to be able to become all that we were originally born to be.  Hiding from our pain, troubles and traumas is never the way to go.

I remember the popular story of the eagle chick that found itself amongst chickens. It grew up with these chickens though it was a baby eaglet. It ate with them, drank with them and slept with them in the same chicken-infested environment.  The bonding was so strong that it began to pick dirt with them and sleep in dirt like them but this did not take away from the fact that the baby eaglet was really an eagle bird.

The home of the eagle bird is in the skies. It was born to soar. The question is what do you do when you are dumped amongst chickens in an environment alien to you especially when you have never sighted another eagle bird just like yourself?   Yes you are the king of the skies but you found yourself in a foreign place with lower birds that eat dirt and you never knew you were different from the brood of chickens.

The only thing that can save us in this situation is if we are helped to escape this environment or if we suddenly come to a sudden realization of who we are in life, better still a combination of these two scenarios could be necessary for you to be free and to be all that we were created to be by providence.

The way we see ourselves matters in life…..going forward  let us  choose to see….

Endless possibilities.

See new opportunities opening for your good daily.

See million dollars businesses opening to you directly.

See favour encompassing you like a shield daily.

See kings and queens doing your biddings daily.

See peace like an ocean flowing into your soul daily.

See God doing amazing things for you, in you, and through you.

See lines falling for you in pleasant places daily.

See new waves of glory pouring over your life and destiny daily.

See mighty cascades of favour, glory and greatness overflowing in every place.

See new doors of power, progress and promotions opening up for you daily.

See unlimited grace, see uncensored favour and mighty rivers of prosperity flowing in your life and destiny daily.

See great honour and great doors of elevation, promotion and accelerations opening up for you.

See abundance of everything good and perfect overflowing in your life and destiny daily.

See great solutions to your many problems daily.

See excellence, greatness and glory in your daily activities.

See new platforms, new horizons and new glory daily,

See people working to see you prosper and get to the top of your game daily.

See angels hearkening to every one of your calls daily.

See God daily celebrating you and ensuring that your life becomes the envy of millions.

See joy like an ocean deep within your spirit, soul and mind daily.

See new doors, visions, dreams, insights, and horizons opening up for you daily.

Everyday resolve to see good, think good, be good and do good.

Choose to see differently, powerfully and positively every day of your life going forward.

Nothing will be impossible to achieve for you any longer, you are in a new season of power, promises and possibilities.  It is the dawn of a new day and a new glory!

It is a new era of a new season that portends a brand new beginning for you and I.

My message to you today is simple, and that is the fact that you are created to soar, to wield influence and create impact and become great in life.   I do not care what kinds of trauma you might have suffered in life. The end of the trauma has come. Today a new chapter opens up for us all to soar, shine and succeed as the true persons in God that we all are. Yesterday is gone. Today is a brand new day to live and dream again. It is time to soar, conquer and rule your world.

You owe yourself greatness.

You owe yourself glory.

You owe yourself success.

The way that you see matters. What you are looking at matters. How you daily perceive yourself matters. Who you hang out with daily matters. Who you are getting advice  from daily matters.   You must ensure that you see right, perceive right and act right.

You were not born to just look on in life. You were born to participate in the game of life.  You were not born to just spectate as an onlooker, you were born to be the change and to create new paths for others to follow.  You were born a star. Choose to live as the star that you are.

Today we must all choose to reach for the stars because we are all STARS!

Both Atiku and Ayu called the then governors’ bluff and did not succumb to their demands in the just-concluded elections.

Makinde and Wike reportedly played supportive roles to Tinubu ensure his victory at the February 25, presidential election.

Those at the meeting are Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state as well as former Governors Nyesom Wike (Rivers), Samuel Ortom (Benue), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu).

Senate Rejects Controversial Water Bill



enate President Tells APC Delegates To Choose Presidential Candidate Without Baggage
Senate President Ahmed Lawan

The controversial National Water Resources Bill, 2023 has been rejected by the Senate.

The bill was lined up for concurrence in the order paper but was rejected by the majority of the senators.

This brings an end to the controversy by governors and the federal lawmakers particularly those from the Southern part of the country.

When the bill was read for concurrence on the floor of the Senate on Tuesday, Senator Gabriel Suswan from Benue North West, raised Order 85 of the Senate Rules which provides that Senators must have full details of the provisions of any bill coming for concurrence.

Senator James Manager from Delta South, who seconded Senator Suswan’s point of order, also stressed the need to have details of the bill since provision was made for only the title of bill.

The Senate President Ahmad Lawan, who later ruled in favour of the rule cited, adjourned the plenary for the day.

It would be recalled that the House of Representatives had passed the bill in 2020 amidst suspicion by members and the general public that the proposal had sinister motives.

Before the passage, the chairman of the House Committee on Water Resources, Sada Soli, said the former Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), as well as commissioners for justice and attorneys-general of the 36 states of the federation had been consulted and the opinions received would be attached to the bill and distributed to all members.

To buttress the suspicion of some members of the public, a member of the House from Benue State, Mark Gbillah, raised the alarm when the bill was to be taken for the first reading.

Only the short title of a bill is written on the Order Paper for first reading, while a long title, which has more details, is written when listed for second reading.

Gbillah said, “I am aware that the matter listed for first reading, the National Water Resources Bill, generated a lot of controversy within this honourable House and even across the country, and some of us wonder why this issue is still being represented on the floor of the House, because some of us are not comfortably in support of this bill in the first instance Mr Speaker. I thought I should bring that to the notice of the Right Honourable Speaker.”

The Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, who admitted that Gbillah “raised a very cogent point,” noted that Nigeria is a very diverse country and everybody’s sensitivity must be taken into consideration.

Gbillah, however, disagreed with the Speaker, stating that the lawmakers were duly elected and given the mandate to represent the interests of their constituents.

He said, “Whatever the governors might have agreed upon may not be acceptable to us. It is we that have those powers as enshrined in the Constitution to enact legislation that will be binding on this country.”

There were fireworks in the House on September 29, 2020, with some members, mostly from the southern part of the country, raising various legal and procedural issues against the bill.”

The then President, Muhammadu Buhari, had in 2017 presented the controversial bill to both chambers of the National Assembly, which seeks to transfer the control of water resources from the states to the federal government.

The legislation was titled, “A Bill for An Act to Establish a Regulatory Framework for the Water Resources Sector in Nigeria, Provide for the Equitable and Sustainable Redevelopment, Management, Use and Conservation of Nigeria’s Surface Water and Groundwater Resources and for Related Matters.”

The summary of the bill reads, “This Act repeals the Water Resources Act, Cap W2 LFN 2004; River Basin Development Act Cap R9 LFN 2004; Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency (Establishment) Act, Cap N110A, LFN,2004; National Water Resources Institute Act Cap N83 LFN 2004; and establishes the National Council on Water Resources, Nigeria Water Resources Regulatory Commission, River Basin Development Authorities, Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency, and the National Water Resources Institute.”

The proposed bodies, if established, will “provide for the regulation, equitable and sustainable development, management, use and conservation of Nigeria’s surface water and groundwater resources.”

Though the 8th House managed to pass the bill, the controversy had frustrated passage of the bill by the Senate, as the Red Chamber on May 24, 2018, considered the executive bill for second reading, during which senators were divided across regional lines.

While Northern Senators had supported the proposal and its objectives, their Southern counterparts had opposed it.

Those opposed to the bill had pointed out that the bill, if passed into law, would further centralise power and resources of the country. This, they pointed out, would counter the move towards devolution of power domiciled with the federal government.
