‘You’re Going To Be The Most Successful Housemate’- Princess Shyngle To Tacha

Though shocking, Tacha‘s disqualification has triggered both positive and negative reactions from Nigerians and celebrities. However, Princess Shyngle is certainly on the negative side.

Princess Shyngle has taken to her Instagram page with immediate effect to condemn the decision made by Big Brother to disqualify Tacha, saying that it is only normal for a person to react the way she did after being provoked and pushed to the wall.

According to Princess, if a girl dared to flip her hair on her (Princess) face, she would have slapped the shit out of whoever it is.

She just tagged the judgement an unjust and partial one and praised Tacha for being the most trending housemate of the year.

However, she further stated that Tacha would definitely be the most successful housemate within a few months.
“You’re by far my winner, and you played the game perfectly and Mark my words you’re going to be the most successful housemate in just a few months”

Imo Governor, Ihedioha Donates Brand New Toyota Coaster Bus to Heartland FC of Owerri

–Naze Millionaires Management Appreciates Ihedioha.

The Executive Governor of Imo State, Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha has redeemed his promise to support and rejig Heartland FC of Owerri to take her pride of place in the scheme of things.
First was the hiring of an astute tactician in the person of Coach Fidelis Ilechukwu, Ikechukwu Ezenwa and other vibrant, energetic players followed suit.
As if that wasn’t enough, The Governor had gone a step further with the provision of a spanking new Bus for the team to ease the daunting challenge of transportation.
This apt gesture surprised the entire board, management and technical team of Heartland football club in the mid hours of Wednesday 25th September 2019 when the management stumbled on the Governor’s gift at the Douglas house. The General Manager of the Club Chief Ifeanyi Chukwudi was beyond excited as he expressed his boundless joy in the prospect of utilizing the vehicle for the benefit of the Club. According to him, the issue of transportation has been a major concern to the management team since assuming office especially as it concerns the rigours and challenges of the team prosecuting away matches in the 2019/2020 season commencing in October in terms of travel time, travel safety and travel cost. With the availability of a strong new Toyota coaster bus, those worries would be a thing of the past.
He prayed the almighty God to continue to bless the good effort of the Governor in his effort to redirect and reinvigour heartland FC of Owerri. To whom much is given, much is also expected. The Heartland Chief promised not to disappoint the Governor.
The technical adviser Fidelis Ilechukwu praised the Governor for coming to their aid, promising that his team will reciprocate the gesture of the number one citizen . In the same vein, the stand in captain of the team Uche Oguchi hailed the governor’s gesture. He recalled with nostalgia how the number one citizen came to the aid of the team before he assumed office, when the team was fighting relegation .
The purchase of a brand new Toyota coaster
bus is the latest in a series of achievements of Governor Emeka Ihedioha in repositioning Heartland FC of Owerri. Recall that during his inaugural speech ,his Excellency was particular about the dwindling fortunes of the Naze Millionaires and indeed sports in the State and promised to rebuild it.
Governor Emeka Ihedioha went on to put action to his words by awarding contracts for the holistic renovation of the Dan Anyiam Stadium, the immediate constitution of a Management Board of Heartland FC which indicated a full return to work and all the required financial assistance in ensuring the services of Coach Fidelis Ilechukwu whom he personally unveiled at the Government House not forgetting the acquisition of marquee players to prosecute the upcoming NPFL season and a host of others too numerous to mention.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE APPOINTMENT

Trailing the path of all other governors in the Federation but a few, His excellency Chief Emeka Ihedioha is currently appointing persons to stir the ship of Imo State’s political bureaucracy. Whatever criteria the former Federal lawmaker might have adopted in making these appointments are personal to him. However, what prompted this piece is solely the noise that the appointment was greeted with about few days ago .

Nevertheless, the whole noise in Imo State over appointments has become an eloquent testament to the livid mindset of the citizenry about the purposes for which these political offices serve. Rather than appreciate the fact that an appointment essentially bestowed on the appointee is an inescapable responsibility to make personal sacrifices, to leave his comfort zone, “abandon” his wonderful family and miss their love in order to work for a greater Imo State, the people tend to see an appointment as a call to chop! Herein lies the problem. This is why there is noise over appointments so far.

We now live in a society where people can kill, bribe and blackmail simply because of political appointments. A man who obtains an appointment by means of killing, to which end will he put such office? More killings, of course!

Appalling beyond imagination is the fact that in the appointment disputations far, issues of competence, credibility and character are hardly mentioned as these are bedrock behind this government political appointment. In order words it is strictly on merit. Little wonder till now, there is no person in Imo who has been able to unearth and publish any damning report on any person appointed by the nascent administration. Rather than making false claims and accusation on the list of appointees, I think it is more relevant to tell us that a person cannot deliver value because he failed when he was tried in the past or that there is an allegation of fraud hanging on his neck than to fault his appointment because of his birth, his class, his creed or his station in life. Let us not forget in a hurry that the greatness of a nation like America was earned through the efforts of the sons of the former slaves and the sons of the former slave owners too.

It is no surprise to realize that the most nauseating argument about the Imo appointment impasse is oozing from no other source other than the camp of Rochas Okorocha and his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu. To these folks, appointment should be given only to children of the poorest of the poor as he fondly calls them. In my opinion, this trade of thinking contributed largely to the failure of that administration. Where they parceled out appointments as take home benefits and empowerment schemes, and rewarded blind loyalty instead of credibility and competence in the face of work. This could be traceable as to why a one time motor driver named Uche Nwosu could become a multi billionaire through public office in five just years. Any government that follows that trajectory is already configured to fail on arrival.

Editor’s Comment:

As governor Ihedioha continues to stir the of the leadership of this government, let all and sundry realize that it is his right to will, to choose and to do his good pleasure on who he deems fit for any position of power. But, above all, in as much as it is our own right to hold him accountable for the actions and in-actions of those he appointment, the citizens should learn to balance their judgement with verifiable facts and reasoning, for uneasy lies the head that wears the crown.

His Excellency Governor Emeka Ihedioha followed by His Deputy Engr. Gerald Irona
