Heavy Down Pour Storm Ilorin, Destroyed several Houses

Heavy Down Pour Storm Ilorin, Destroyed several Houses
- community cries out, call for government assistance.
Yesterday, it was a rainy experience for people within Ilorin metropolis as rain stormed the city and selectively destroyed several properties. The rainy experience was not favorable.
The SATCOMMEDIA learnt that the rainstorm that occurred on Saturday night also displaced many people at Oke Ogun community, in Edun, Idiagbon community, in Emirs road, Isale-Gambari among other affected areas.
Though no lives were lost in the incident.
An eyewitness from the community affirmed the incident and call on government for assistance, as many people left were devastated with little or without hope of assistance from any quarters.
He however, further stressed that, any assistance for non-governmental organizations would go along way in restoring the lost hope and further placed them back to normal life.













Dear Kwara Youth, When will you wake up from sleep? By Basheer Luqman Olarewaju- Unique

DEAR KWARA YOUTH, WHEN WILL YOU WAKE UP FROM SLEEP ?

BY:

BASHEER LUQMAN OLAREWAJU-UNIQUE


Certain number of youth in Kwara State are getting it absolutely right. The growth and development of the state is logically at the shoulders of the youth who are ready to take the state to the next level.

Across the corners and crevices of the state, there are youth who are stereotypical in thinking and they know nothing other than ranting on the street of social media. It is pathetic to witness how they reveal the expanse of their ignorance.

It’s about stepping up to the leadership plate when the doors to lead are flung open for you to walk through. Are you well-equipped to take up the leadership mantle and lead when the old-guard fall by the wayside? Where is your attention? What are you focused on? Where do you expend your energy? Where exactly are you going?

Against all odds, I have been advocating for good governance a long time, this is an urgent need for a new consciousness and…

BREAKING: Atiku's Son recovers from coronavirus

In  I, Mohammed Atiku Abubakar, wish to inform Nigerians that I have finally been cleared and discharged after 40 days  of coronavirus (Covid19) treatment.

Indeed, I have been humbled by this experience. Words cannot sufficiently convey the depth of my joy over my recovery and discharge. Since I tested positive after my return from abroad and my…

Emir of Ilorin @80: My dithyrambs to a game changer by Basheer Luqman

When you find something worth writing about, you wouldn't know how the words flow freely. Never having met a handsome lord, it is difficult to join in pouring out praise on a richly bejewelled man, trained from highly coveted school of philosophy, worked at specially distinguised realm, dressed in fragrant robes and living in an ivory palace. "If you devote yourself entirely to a noble pursuit, there is no way you cannot find beauty and fulfillment" - Daniel Gillies.


Harry S. Truman once said, “Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.” That quote is decades old, but it’s still a powerful and true statement today. If leaders want to live up to Harry’s expectations and read up on all things leadership, they’ve got their work cut out for them—there’s a vast collection of information to sift through. From learning about different leadership styles to cultivating a winning culture, embracing the heritage and embedded with the ascension of reality of life.
