Otu-Jeremi Police Division’s Extortion On The Road Has Gotten Out Of Hand

By Zik Gbemre, It is imperative to call the DPO and his patrol team at the Otu-Jeremi Police Divisional Office in Ughelli South Local Government Area, Delta State to order and stop their growing indulgence in extortion of members of the public. The DPO and his patrol team are so blinded by the lure of extortion on motorists and commuters in Ughelli South to the point of compromising the protection of critical national assets, particularly oil and gas assets in their sphere of operations. This public misconduct was displayed on…

Soldiers Killing: Between Aba And Okuama

By Zik Gbemre,   There is no justification for killing of any human being. I will always condemn killings, kidnapping, robberies and every heinous crime, every offence no matter who and what is involved. Governor Alex Otti of Abia state has proven to be a man experienced in leadership. He is a material for governance. The way he is handling the killing of soldiers in his state is evident he is committed to lead his people. As noted by Chief Godwin Notoma, a prominent Udu Kingdom Chief in Delta state,…

OMONADE-GATE: It Was Never About Defending  A Tamed Opposition Lawmaker

By Zik Gbemre,   From the feedback, still pouring in, on my reflections on “OMONADE’S SUSPENSION: WHO’S STILL DISPUTING DELTA IS UNDER CHOKE OF A KINDERGARTEN GOVERNMENT“, it is cheering confirming that even with the populace increasingly becoming gullible, many tamed by deprivations and stomach infrastructures, many informed Deltans agree with me that our State is truly choking under a ‘one chance’ government with Governor Sheriff Oborwvwori at the helms. Vindicated by these feedbacks, there was really no point to throw banters with the Governors rental praise singers who want…

DISCLAIMER: RE: OMONADE’S SUSPENSION: WHO’S STILL DISPUTING DELTA IS UNDER CHOKE OF A KINDERGARTEN GOVT?

I read with deep consternation an online article on spadenigeria.com written by one Zik Gbemre on May 27, 2024 titled “Omonade’s Suspension: Who’s Still Disputing Delta is Under Choke of a Kindergarten Govt?”, in which he sold a wrong and toxic thought on the internal conflict we had in Delta State House of Assembly. As lawmakers, it is inevitable to experience internal issue which are also meant to be resolved in the House. I want to state categorically and in very clear terms that I, Hon. Matthew Onojighofia Omonade, member…

HON OMONADE’S SUSPENSION: WHO’S STILL DISPUTING DELTA IS UNDER CHOKE OF A KINDERGARTEN GOVT?

By Zik Gbemre,   It is common knowledge that under the PDP thieving hegemony over Delta state since 1999, the populace have suffered worsening misgovernment. However, before the cabal catapulted Governor Sheriff Oborevwori to the top spot in Delta government, past misgovernment displayed by the ruling PDP was not a reflection of ineptitude and lack of leadership capacity. The tragedy of Delta state under the two medical doctors, was induced by a combination of sheer abuse of power and influence of the office of the governor, a desperation to sustain…

WHAT DOES GOV OBOREVWORI WANT TO ACHIEVE WITH A DELTA STATE DEVELOPMENT INVESTMENT AGENCY?

By Zik Gbemre   What will Delta State Development Investment Agency be doing? Delta and Nigeria need focused leaders and not “political drama actors”. Has Governor Sheriff Oborevwori become the likes of President Tinubu who is global trotting and finding investors in Europe, Asia and North America that will never take him serious? This is another agency that will be wasting public funds in hosting business summits, seminars, conferences, meetings. What have they achieved with all these worthless business gatherings that are nothing but jamborees to compensate party loyalists and…

Gbagi’s Exit, Big Blow To Me And Family

By Zik Gbemre,   He was my loyal younger brother and friend. We joked and laughed whenever he visited me in my community home town of Iwhrekan of Ughievwen and whenever I visited him in his country home in Oginibo town of Ughievwen in Ughelli south. I recollect when he invited me for swearing in of his dear wife, Justice Sybil Gbagi as Appeal Court Justice at the Supreme Court Abuja and I met Alhaji Abdullah Bukar of Shell, the Emir of Lafia who was a former Supreme Court Justice…

TINUBU GLOBETROTTING FOR FDI: WHICH NATION, INVESTOR WILL TAKE HIM SERIOUS

By Zik Gbemre,     The video of Audu Ogbe has revealed it all. We should blame the supposed Nigerian leaders who rely on the West and other foreign countries to do for us what we can do for ourselves. Is it not shameful that President Tinubu is busy globetrotting for nothing? Paul Kagame of Rwanda is busy comfortably at home developing his country from home grown policies and solutions while Bola Ahmed Tinubu is busy begging for favour here and there from Western and Asian leaders for Foreign Direct…

OKUAMA IDP’S MANAGEMENT & REPS PROBE: WE’RE WATCHING

By Zik Gbemre So far so good on Okuama, Governor Sheriff Oborevwori has set up an IDP Management Committee headed by our Abraham Ogbodo and House of Reps has opened probe on killing of soldiers, killing of Okuama people and elimination of Okuama community that spared only the Anglican Church building in memory of the first Midwest/Bendel Bishop, Agori-Iwe who hailed from Okuama community in Ughelli South LGA of Delta State. I had faulted Oborevwori for not condemning the destruction and elimination of Okuama community by the military when he…

NIGERIA OUT-OF-CONTROL INSECURITY: SIMPLE SOLUTION BUHARI SHIES AWAY FROM

  By Zik Gbemre   Insecurity in Nigeria has gone beyond the control of insensitive President Mohammadu Buhari. A situation where the Guards Brigade of the President is killed by hoodlums/terrorists is a cause for alarm. It is a show of force, by the bandits, that nobody is protected from them. The Guards Brigade are special troops of soldiers responsible for protecting the President of Nigeria and the Federal Capital of Abuja, his seat of government. When those responsible to guard the president are not safe then it calls for…
