Wike relaxes total Lockdown as Rivers records 16 new COVID-19 cases

Published

Governor
Nyesom Wike has relaxed the total lockdown in Obio-Akpor and Port
Harcourt Local Government Areas scheduled to take effect from tomorrow
Thursday, May 14, 2020.
Governor
Wike in a state broadcast said while on routine monitoring, he observed
how difficult it has been for residents to access money from their
banks to make purchases during the Two-Day window that was given.
He
said the difficulty prevented most residents of the two affected Local
Government Areas from preparing and making adequate provisions for the
upkeep of their families when the lockdown returns this Sunday, May 17.
The
Governor also expressed concern over the increasing rate in number of
infections, with sixteen new cases of COVID-19 recorded in the state.
“As
we recorded 16 new cases for today, the highest since the index case,
which goes to confirm not only my personal apprehension for our State
and the need to be tough in our mitigation strategies.
“And so,
there is no room for politics in this matter. We must discharge our
abiding duty to use the primary weapons at our disposal to combat this
virus and contain its spread, lest we regret the consequences of our
inactivity and indiscretions.
“We
understand the consequential difficulties, but what we can do in the
circumstance is to appeal to the public to endure the attendant
discomfort as inevitable sacrifice for the common good of all.
“Suffice
to mention that no deliberate harm is ever intended or targeted at
anybody neither are we happy with the prevailing hardship on the people
as a result of measures we have adopted to fight this deadly virus.
“But,
the overall interest, security and wellbeing of our people remain our
primary motivation for what we have done and will continue to do to
combat and protect our State from the Covid-19 scourge.
“In
consideration of the foregoing, the concerns of our people, and the
need for residents to replenish their supplies, especially, the State
Security Council has decided to impose a night-time curfew and review
the effective date of the complete lockdown on Obio/Akpor and Port
Harcourt City Local Government Areas from the 14th of May 2020 to Sunday
17th May 2020 by 8.00 p.m.
“Consequently, there will be: a
night-time curfew in Obio/Akpor and Port Harcourt Local Government Areas
from 8.00 p.m. to 6.00 a.m. on Thursday 14th May 2020, Friday 15th May
2020, and Saturday 16th May 2020.
“While the total lockdown on
Obio/Akpor and Port Harcourt Local Government Areas will immediately
follow from 8.00 p.m. Sunday 17th May 2020 until further notice.
“We
expect residents to make good use of the new Four-day daytime window to
purchase, restock and prepare for the total lockdown,” Wike said.

Nicki Minaj agrees “Essence” should be song of the year at the Grammys

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
