2019 Polls: Evangelist Ideh Declares For Presidency Under the ANN Political Party
Mrs Elishamma Ideh has declared her intentions to contest for the presidential position in Nigeria, Thursday in Abuja. Highlighting what Nigerians should look for in electing a president, come 2019, Ideh stated that Nigeria deserves more than it presently has as leaders, and that the people are better than what presently obtains.
According to her, “We live in trying and dangerous times”, and Nigerians yearn for “something better, something MORE, than what we’ve had before now. Your presence here today speaks of dissatisfaction with the way things are at present; a restlessness with a sterile status quo that has held us in its sway and circumscribed the pace and direction of our individual and collective progress for so long; and a desire for genuine and far-reaching change, change that will move your lives and those of your children from where you are to where you ought to be”.
Ideh, is the President/Founder of Christ The Ever-Present Ministry -CTEM, Lagos, and also the initiator of Partnership For A New Nigeria -PFANN. She will be running under the platform of the Alliance for a New Nigeria (ANN).
Over the weekend, I joined my children to watch the
much talked about ‘Black Panther’. It was a good film, and I was happy they
took me to see it. However, I came out of the movie theatre a little upset. When the first scenes came up, and I saw “Sambisa Forest”
I was unhappy that the only reference the film makers could have for Nigeria
was a negative one, but I was later encouraged by the thought of Africans
solving African problems. That is a good thing, the kinds of things we used to
do. For young people who may not remember, Nigerian civil servants and indeed
most able citizens used to contribute money every month to support the struggle
against Apartheid in South Africa. Nigeria was the single stabilizing force
across West Africa. Helping to restore peace in Liberia and Sierra Leone are
examples of the gigantic status we once had.
The maiden edition of the 'my phone photography exhibition' held on the 23rd of March. The Shehu Musa Yar'adua Centre located in central area, Abuja, played host to this event. It was an atmosphere filled with calmness but you could also hear the joy and excitement in the voices of the over 100 people who came through the exhibition doors. The idea of the exhibition was born by one of the exhibitors (Omofuoma Agharite). Haven taken numerous pictures with her phone, she wanted to share those pictures with others and at the same time support a charity organisation. It was then that the idea was born and given to Ivy Events to nurture. After months of planning and execution, a group of exhibitors came together to showcase some of the amazing pictures that they had photographed with only their phones.
