Jonathan Daughter’s Wedding: Roads And Market Trouble



Wedding of Jonathan’s daughter is causing troubles in Yenagoa metropolis, Bayelsa State as some roads are being closed and it results in heavy traffic.

The wedding of Elizabeth Faith Osakwe & Godswill Osim Edward will be held on Saturday and the security involving soldiers and police are already present at the location.

Dame Patience Jonathan, wife of the President, has arrived to the state 2 days ago, and Jonathan is expected to arrive today, on Friday.

The ceremony will be attended by top government functionaries, politicians and many other dignitaries, some of them have already arrived.

There is a private residence of Jonathan in the area – along Kpansia, and as some of the roads leading to it were closed down, it caused many motorists to make a detour and choose longer routes than usual.

Correspondents of Punch reveal that gridlocks were caused by closure of some roads and the city motorists groan.

According to reports, Saturday market at Kpansia had already been ordered to be shot down by the state government.Traders that took their goods to the Kpansia market, via Sani Abacha road were forced to take other much longer roads.Some traders already closed down.

One of the traders, who desired to remain anonymous, stated that it was hard to believe that the whole community was put at a standstill because of wedding of one person.

“Closing some strategic roads because of the wedding is ill-advised. They should have devised a much better approach to managing the situation. The situation is not good enough,” trader said.

    Honestly, anything in Nigeria is either be precedent or unprecedent ones, mostly in Nigeria govt, normally as someone as viewed above,there is no way such event wouldn’t cause such tragedic commotion in the community area of the event but, they should’ve arranged for the better alternative for the ease of the masses instead of imposing punishment on them. In contrast, this wouldn’t have happened at some advanced nation. I think convenient of the citizens should be uptimum goal of any government in life. They should remember that any post in life is transient one and will consequently accounted for hereafter one day!

    Wonders shall never end so even bayelsa pple are not happy that god used his left hand to pick up gej to throw light in that primitive area.
    And insted of them to see him as their mini-god yet they still have the grounds to tackle him
    what is road block
    that even ordinary allamajiri can block get away with it
    is why your calling gej.

    Why do some people like to talk from Anus instead of mouth? Does it mean after that day you can’t trade in the market again? You just want to tell the world how foolish most traders are. That stopping of movement has been done in all part of the country, while is the one of our president is different? Or you want to open another chapter of insolence page for this jobless APC animals to rant nonsense. This is absolute nonsense and sign of disrespect.

The wicked shall not go unpunished - Oyedepo tells hoodlums vandalizing properties

General Overseer of the Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo, has reacted to the ongoing vandalization and looting of government and private properties by hoodlums in the country.

Oyedepo declared that all the hoodlums taking undue advantage of the unrest in the country will not go unpunished.

The cleric made the declaration during his Sunday service on October 25.

The clergyman also prophesied that unrest in the country was over and that the peace of God has been restored back to the land.

“The sources of agitation will be wisely dealt with and favorably dealt with; the land shall rest again in the name of Jesus Christ.

“All the hoodlums who are taking advantage of this season, let hand be joined in hand, the wicked shall not go unpunished.

“Innocent people on the streets going about their own cause and businesses, they were in their shops, the only business they have.

“CAUTION! You don’t have a double life, you have only one, you don’t have a spare. Caution! I bind all activities of the devil behind every form of unrest being inflicted by hoodlums in the name of Jesus,” he prayed.
