SPECIAL REPORT ON EDUCATION, HEALTH, WATER AND INFRASTRUCTURE IN ESANLAND



An interview with Hon. Sergius O. Ogun, Federal House of Rep. Nigeria
Esan North East/Esan South East

By @WPP Jr

Like you said, we’re like the Jews in the midst of Arabs. An average Esan man is enterprising you know; that’s why we’re everywhere in the world.

Now they say our population is not large enough to produce a governor in Edo State but if we tell every Esan man to come back home, I’m sure we will be the largest ethnic groups in Edo State, that’s the truth.” Sergius

SOCIAL ORGANIZATION AND POLITICAL STRUCTURE

Image - BENBLACK
SOCIAL ORGANIZATION AND POLITICAL STRUCTURE

By Dr Christopher G, Okojie
The entire social structure is based on KINSHIP. The smallest social unit being UELEN which consists of a man, his wives, children, junior brothers, his yet unmarried sisters and any other such persons as his mother and servants. When the junior brothers grow up and get married, they build their own houses round their senior brother's which was their father's house before his death. This man is the king post of the whole structure and I name him outright for easy reference: he is the OMINJIOGBE (AKHEOA in Esan 'B'). As the brothers' own families start to multiply it is easy to see this man's position as head of the family increasing in importance. He speaks for his unit and takes charge of the Ancestral Shrine.

 “For tomorrow belongs to the people who prepared for it today.” Esan  proverbs

By @WPP Jr

God create music for the upliftment of human spirit. Music is the food of the soul because it has the power to connect us to our spirit being. It arouses our attention and leads us into dancing mould until we’re transfigure, driving by terrestrial angelic forces, we’re lifted, transformed and elevated beyond the physical because our minds is lost in merriment. In that very moment, we are separated from the pangs of life. Music is what good medicine is to body of mortals that needs healing; it relieves our spirit from living weights. Likewise is one’s latter glorious day if we plan well and work the goals.


EMUAKHAGBON

Meaning, to keep your focus on tomorrow concerning that thing you’re doing today in that not to suffer at old age.

Bitter leaf- my menstrual cramp aid

By AgroNigeria

I could remember vividly my days as a free young girl, who didn’t have to worry about any cramps or pains, didn’t have to be cautious about getting stained or even refrain myself of taking sugary substance. Oh! How I miss those days. But more glaring to me was how my class mates who have started seeing their monthly flow made me feel, unknown to them. I could remember a time when makers of ALWAYS sanitary pad visited my school to educate girls on how to use menstrual pads and also talk about sex education, my home economics teacher had instructed every girl in my class to leave whatever they were doing and ensured they attended the seminar/workshop, she also emphasised that particularly girls who had started seeing their monthly flow.

HEALTH - AFRICAN LOCUST BEANS, NATURE’S RARITY



By AgroNigeria

What comes to your mind anytime you come across the saying ‘‘don’t judge a book by its cover?’’ Beyond the literal meaning it depicts, it’s deep and applies to everything we do and engage in, even in terms of the food we eat and the ingredients we use in preparing them. I have pondered several times why some things that are useful to humans would cause a kind of displeasure or discomfort.

Okay, let me put it simply. Take Onions, for instance, it has so many health benefits, yet it provokes tears from one’s eyes when peeled. What of lime? It has a sour taste but very medicinal. There is no way you will taste lime and not notice some changes in your body system before it performs its functions.

ESANLAND DID YOU HAVE HEATH INSURANCE?


By Ramatu U Bako

One of the under-utilized, under branded and under popular policies of our government is the National health Insurance Scheme (NHIS). Or the Private Health Insurance Scheme (PHIS) for those not working with or for government.

There is absolutely no reason why people should be going around looking for money to go to hospital or buy prescription in this country. It is appalling that in this day and age, people die not due to illness but due to the time lag occasioned by relatives running around trying to raise money to pay for test or medicines etc

IDEA IN BUSINESS MANAGEMENT IN NIGERIA


by @WPP Jr

I would love to reiterate again because I’ve said this before and I will say it again. THIS IS THE BLACK MAN CENTURY. That means this is Africa time. And Nigeria is going to be one of the driving forces behind this phenomenal transformation that’s happening in Africa this century and beyond. It’s already happening. If you live abroad, is easier to be blinded by Western stereotypes and media bias toward Africa.

So, open your eyes very well and make sure you invest back home.  Buy as much land as you can, they don’t manufacture them anymore. Think property investment.

Some of the many health benefits that water melon provides when eaten include:

ESANLAND Cultivate Your Mind – Reap Purposeful Living

 
 Cultivate Your Mind – Reap Purposeful Living

By @WPP Jr

The success of Omojiade is the glory of Esanland. So let promote/support more of unity of purpose, for by so doing we can direct our energy, resources for the common good of Esanland and Nigeria.

Lack of purpose leads to indefinite action and inaction beget idleness and idleness leads to underdevelopment and redundant of human faculties.

Nations retrogress due to lack of purpose but, vision, hard work, commitment to the vision begets a great and stable nation. It’s high time we realized in Esanland/Nigeria, reform/development won’t happen overnight. Time birth dreams. “Nations do not grow overnight as mushrooms or by miracle. Nations are the result of vision, commitment, selfless sacrifices by men and women who believe in the cause of the nation.” Emeka O Ojukwu.
