Odili urges NURSS to shun cultism


The Rivers State Governor, Dr. Peter Odili has charged members of the National Union of Rivers State Students (NURSS) not to join secret cults.

The Rivers State Governor, Dr. Peter Odili has charged members of the National Union of Rivers State Students (NURSS) not to join secret cults. The governor gave this admonition during the commissioning ceremony of the new temporary NURSS Office in Port Harcourt on Thursday, January 6, 2004.

According to him: "You don't have to join secret cults in order to be a big man. The choice you make today determines what you will be in future. If you are upright, the future will be bright for you."

The Governor who was represented at the occasion by the State Commissioner for Information. Hon Magnus Abe, said that unless they remain focused in their academic pursuits; the future would be bleak for them, adding that they are the most important persons that would decide their own future.

He assumed them that the state government would continue to support all the activities involving NURSS and made a donation of N1 million to the union at the occasion
Earlier, in his speech, the National President of NURSS, Gbarato Baridakara, appealed to the state government to release more funds to the union to help them acquire a Cyber Café, which he deemed vital.

President Baridakara commended the Governor for his friendly disposition towards the welfare of Rivers students in institutions of higher learning.

Otasowie means evening life is better than morning life. There is an error in your “evening life is better than evening life”?

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.
