Beneficiaries of the third phase of the presidential amnesty for Niger Delta ex-militants have threatened to demand the return of their arms and ammunition from the Federal Government.

The National Chairman of Ex-Agitators Youth Development Combined (EAYDC), Mr Tonye Bobo, said it is unfortunate that more than 11 years after surrendering their arms, the disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration progress has not been completed.

Speaking with journalists in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State Capital, Bobo urged the amnesty office under the interim administrator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Col Milland Dixon Dikio (rtd), to document those that surrendered their arms and ammunition but are yet to be captured into the programme.

He also demanded that the third phase beneficiaries of the programme be included in education and vocational training for its delegates.

He said: “It’s unfortunate that we have stayed for 11 years plus and the disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration is not completed, we are just trying to calm our followers, but our patience should not be considered to be foolishness.

“That is why when we saw the vision of Col. Dikio for amnesty programme, we decided to key in to restore peace in the region.

“I want to assure you, if the needful is not done, there will be more agitations, we are only trying to calm our people for us to change the narrative, we are seeking maximum support from the government to the office of the Interim Administrator of the Amnesty programme, all the funds that is required and is due to the office should be released.

“We want the funding for amnesty programme to move down to first line charges, those that disarmed and we’re not documented should be carried along, because all these days, they have been crying that if government is not reasoning with them, they will be demanding for their arms and ammunition that they submitted to the government.

“We want to partner with the government and create a relationship that will be free of violence, so that people will know that what they are thinking about us is not what we are. Some of our people have applied since 2012 for education scholarship, up till date, these things have not been met.”

“It’s Ungodly For You To Marry A Woman And Not Be Giving Her Enough Sex” – Governor Ortom’s Senior Aide Says

Smith Akom Takema, the Senior Special Assistant to the Benue State Governor on Rural Development, has said that lack of sexual satisfaction is one of the common causes of marital problems.

 

The married father advised couples to court properly and ask honest questions before marriage because it is ungodly to marry a woman and not satisfy her sexually. Taking to Facebook on Wednesday, April 14, he wrote;

 

“It’s unGodly for you to marry a woman and not be giving her enough sex. Sex is created by God to be enjoyed, they are women who are not sex freaks and can go without it for months without minding, but they are some who can’t stand without sex for a week,”

 

This are things we ought to know during courtship but Christianity has put a ban for sex before marriage.

 

Most times going by christianity standards we don’t even know who we are getting married to as regard to sex life, how can you manage the post ownership, there are things the body systems can’t adopt.

 

“Mbakirgh ngokwase er na hua kempe GA. ” Meaning : you don’t force a old woman to wear pant. The above means a woman/ man who loves regular sex can’t stop it over night.

 

Please, couples should court properly at least ask sincerely and Frank questions among them selves if they can stand the test of fornication. Most marital problems emanate from cheats, unfaithfulness and lack of sexual satisfaction.
