Raj said that they decided to go hiking for the fun of it, especially having being told that there is a well on the mountain, but some of them were scared at first.

"You know when you see a female climbing and getting to the top, we decided to join and we helped ourselves climb because it was raining and everywhere was slippery. We had to take refuge under the shades provided by rocks and trees.

"It was scary because it is a very tall mountain. The people in the village even saw us as risking our lives. We got there, and saw the small well which never gets dry, according to the people," he said.

Raj added that they had been informed by the villagers that there are two wells on the mountain, but could only get to the first one before they returned.

11 Reasons To Vote Hon. Isa Oyambai aka White Lion for House Of Assembly, Adavi L.G.A (APC).

Before I start my listings on anything let's go to real meaning of house of assembly before we know who is really suitable for the position.



What is House Of Assembly?
As seen on wikipedia the free encyclopedia:- House of Assembly is a name given to the legislature or lower house of a bicameral parliament. In some countries this may be at a sub-national level.

Democracy has spoken. The true heroes of this day are we the people of Ebiraland. Even the incumbent couldn't withstand the wind of change the Democratic process has brought upon the people of Ebiraland.

For my fellow people of Adavi Local Government Area, this doesn't stop there. We have to go a step further and Vote the well and truly competent Isa Oyambai of the All Progressive Congress (APC). To represent us at the state level. (House of Assembly).

We have to put an end to the current situation on ground in Adavi local government area of kogi state. The supporting and the continuity of the good governance provided to us all by the current governor Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello.

So let me go directly to the top reasons to vote the White Lion Of Ebiraland (Hon. Isa Oyambai of APC)

  •  He is a young man and would be more compassionate:  He will be considerate and more mature in his decisions. He will be compassionate to people's suffering and misfortunes and he will act when needed to protect the interest of the public.
  •  He is a disciplined person: Hon White lion is less likely to compromise on his principles or let other people ride him if he is voted in. He is also not the kind of person that follows others but rather a natural born leader.
  •  Adavi L.G.A has the most corrupt governance over the past years, judging from the percentage of ghost workers listed in the Governor Yahaya Bello led administrative screening exercise. He's here to cancel all that.
  •  Adavi L.G.A deserves Special Status as Economic Capital of Ebiraland and Kogi State.
  •  He is under the cabinet of All Progressive Congress (APC): Adding more value to his representatives in office if his voted in, this will be given him the full chance to deliberate with the Governor about what we his people needed.
  •  60% of Nationally collected Value Added Tax (VAT) of Ebiraland is from Adavi L.G.A, Yet Adavi gets no mush preference from State and Federal Government when sharing. He's here to free us from all that.
  •  Adavi L.G.A hardly benefit from Ecological funds. Even though it needs it more than any other local gov. In kogi state.
  •  PDP will only reverse the trend of progress. We have seen what they can do at the state level and FG level.
  •  Rehabilitation: Roads, Gutters, and bridges in Adavi local government need rehabilitation. He can speak for us in the house.
  •  Prosperity of Ebiraland and Kogi State is tied to the prosperity of Adavi L.G.A. This is Common sense politics.
  •  Hon. White Lion is not too money conscious: Unlike some other politicians, he is known as a very good business man and he is not seen as a money conscious in his business line, as much as his competitors who might just want to get power for the sake of money. He seems to be more concerned about keeping his good name rather than acquiring riches, and Adavi, Ebiraland, Kogi and the whole Nigeria needs men like that.

This is the chance for all Ebira people to get what they really deserve.

VOTE Hon. Isa Oyambai (White Lion) House Of Assembly (2019) Adavi LGA under the umbrella of All Progressive Congress (APC). And we all shall be freed in Adavi L.G.A.

If not White Lion; Then Who?

See What is Happening To Zariagi Community, Adavi L.G.A of Kogi State.
Before I could believe my uncle that Zariagi ( kabba Junction) is part of Adavi local government I have to lived there for some times, I have my reasons though in this part of Ebiraland Pidgin in English language is their major source of communications ranging from the olds to the Young's.

Also Read: Ambasador Judith Sheffi Atta's Biography One Of The Most Notable Women In Ebiraland.

I later observed that this is happening in this area because of the tribal barrier in the community. Zariagi is a community (town) you wouldn't identify Ebira people, Yoruba people, Igbos, Igala people, Bassa people, Tapas, and Nupes from each other becausof their relations making Zariagi the safest part and the most open for business part of Ebiraland, that may be due to Dangotes' Obajana Cement factory which is not far from the community.

Dangotes' Obajana Cement Factory in Obajana (largest cement factory in Africa) is a major element that makes Zariagi community to stand out from the rest of Ebiraland. Because from my research when I visited Obajana, People both Ebira people and the other tribes nation wide are making their money in Obajana and Zariagi is Developing.

Zariagi as I can say for now is the most developed part of Ebiraland. Even though they don't have any higher learning institution, no good roads, no pipe born water, but in terms of Youth development, Business open areas, private business investments;- Zariagi took the number one spot in Kogi state. And the community is said to have developed this far in just 5 years. What a development!

The Youths in Zariagi are widely open to businesses, though some are oil black market businesses, in this area youths are building houses for businesses without doing frauds (Yahoo Yahoo) and their type of Ebira Musics are drastically different. In Zariagi Ebira Youths are hard-working.

The a fore mention points have made Zariagi (Kabba Junction) the best place to invest in any business is suitable for this area Lands are cheap and accessible.

But the most heart breaking thing in this community is that its Dramatically turning no mans Land which is bad and this is the main things that are happening in Ebira communities through out Ebiraland. Which is why I wrote an open letter to HRM. Ado Ibrahim the paramount ruler of Ebiraland that we need community kings (rulers) in all communities of Ebiraland. Click here to read.

The chairmanship ambition of Alhaji  Eneye Muhammed Ametinigo received a boost today when he received the endorsement of the Adavi Youth Frontiers in Kogi State.
Alh. Muhammed is a chairmanship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adavi Local Government.
Speaking during a courtesy visit to Alh. Muhammed at his residential house at Inoziomi layout, Adavi local
government, Kogi State, the general secretary of AYF, Comrade Danfulani Ohinoyi Lukman, said the group
undertook the visit to applaud Muhammed's courage in declaring interest to run for the Chairmanship position of Adavi local government. He noted that the AYF was convinced that "only a man of repute can effect the positive change that is so dearly needed in Adavi local government".
The AYF is made up of over twenty organisations, including traders' business men and women, students, youths and professionals of Adavi extraction across the 11 wards of Adavi local government.
The group was represented by chairmen and secretaries of member organisations.
Comrade Danfulani said "it is this high profile of yours that has motivated us to unite and channel all our energy to focus on proper and adequate sensitization and awareness of brothers and sisters groups in Adavi to support your
candidacy," he said.
Chairman of AYF, Abdullahi Hakeem, in his contribution said the group had supported all the candidates of APC in the past and would do everything within its powers to ensure victory for Alh. Muhammed Ametinigo.
Responding, Alh. Muhammed Ametinigo thanked AYF for their visit and support.
"With our victory, you will see a difference in what governance is all about," Alh. Muhammed Ametinigo noted. He said security will be a top priority if elected chairman.
He urged the group to keep supporting APC candidates in the state starting with His Excellency Alh. Yahaya Adoza Bello.
He advised members of the group not to relocate during the elections.
"Adavi will be safe. People should remain here and go about their lawful activities. This is your home. You are registered here and should vote here," he added.

"Alh. Yahaya Adoza Bello's administration need people with traceable record of loyalty like Alh. Muhammed Ametinigo. Other aspirants had one link or the other with the 'desperate' politicians of yesteryear, which is dangerous to Alh. Yahaya Adoza Bello political structure. Trust Alhaji Muhammed Ametinigo PA to Hon Suleiman Kokori Abdul, because loyalty is the watch word."
