Everyday Inspiration! “We Rise By Lifting Others.”

Image result for we rise by lifting others quote
We rise by lifting others. A reminder to be the encouraging and understanding friend, the one who spreads love, positivity, joy, smiles and laughter….and who always spreads kindness. Our souls grow and find happiness when we give to others. In fact, we are wired to be compassionate and kind. It is a genetic necessity for human survival. The trust, connection and cooperation engendered through giving, creates community, restores the lonely hearts and brings joy.

There is something so natural about giving when we actually do it that it makes one wonder why we can fall prey to the mind that champions self-centredness as the route to peace and happiness. The mind tries to talk the heart out of generosity and kindness.
There are many wonderful benefits of giving to others. The most important has to be happiness.

2019: Aggrieved APC Aspirants Activate Plan B

Image result for 2019: Aggrieved APC Aspirants Activate Plan B

With the release of candidates’ names by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the various elective offices ahead of 2019, the coast appears clear over those who would be the standard-bearers for the governorship, national and state Houses of Assembly elections. While those whose names made the list have rolled the drums to celebrate and get ready for the elections proper, grieving aspirants are considering plan ‘B’.

Many aggrieved aspirants in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have either gone to court or petitioned the ruling party for redress. Not a few heaved a sigh of relief when news broke last week that the national chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, was grilled by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) over bribery allegations. To them, time had come for the combative comrade chairman to be shown the way out for a new leader that would address their grievances.

This is coming on the heels of mounting pressure from some governors, including Abiola Ajimobi (Ondo), Rochas Okorocha(Imo), Abdulaziz Yari (Zamfara) and many others, on Oshiomhole to resign
But analysts believe it is most unlikely for Oshiomhole to be removed from office given the short period of time available before next year’s elections, as well as the deadline given by the INEC for the substitution of candidates.

Primaries: Governor Offered Oshiomhole $500,000 Bribe In Cash

Fresh details yesterday indicated that the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole became a target after refusing $500,000 bribe cash from a governor.

The governor wanted the APC chairman to adopt his anointed governorship candidate.

But Oshiomhole insisted on applying the guidelines of the party for primaries.

Also, there were indications that the APC leadership tried its best to strike a fair deal with Governor Rochas Okorocha on a 55-45 per cent basis.

The Imo governor, however, opted for 100 per cent concession which was unacceptable to APC.
