Dear all,
Pls, find attached a mail on abone subject.
I will keep you posted of the happenings as we progress first hand.
Pat O. Chukwubike

The Federal Government in its bid of fighting massive unemployment has decided to set up a skills acquisition centre in each of the three senatorial zones in six states. The pilot states are Enugu, Edo, Gombe, Benue, Ogun and Katisna States. As earlier stated, the FG on realization of the fact that most of our youths are unemployed because the do not possess marketable skills. In this line, decided to address this issue through trainings in acquisition of various skills at almost no cost to the person. The unemployed person who must be desirous in acquiring a particular skill will be recruited and trained on the skill of interest after which he/she will be either marketable or become employable.

This onerous task of combating massive unemployment through trainings in skills acquisition among others is the major assignment of the National Directorate of Employment (NDE).

In Enugu State, the three centres chosen for the establishment of these centres are:

1. Enugu North Senatorial Zone: UNDP/Igbo Eze North Skills Centre Ogrute, Enugu Ezike.

2. Enugu East Senatorial Zone: Nkanu West Skills Centre, Agbani.

3. Enugu West Senatorial Zone: Aninri West Skills Centre Nkuesha Nenwe.

Rehabilitation works at these centres have been completed and they are presently being equipped. This is a Millennium Development Goals’ (MDGs) sponsored project.

Trades/skills to be taught at the centres are: Computer Operations/Maintenance, GSM Repairs, Welding (Gas &Electric) Autotronics (Specialized auto-mech) and cosmetology. The training period in the first instance is six months. A total of 250 persons will be trained per centre, making a total of 750 in the state. The trainees shall be paid stipends during the period of training while the trainers who are presently undergoing Train-the –trainers’ (TOT) course at various centres shall be paid allowances by the NDE.

It is expected that about 40% of the trainees who show outstanding performance during the period of training shall be supported by the NDE with either grant of soft loans with which to set up their own workshops.

It is the expectations of government that this laudable programme will go a long way in both fighting the scourge of unemployment as well as curb the rural-urban drift in the society.

Provisions have been put in place for a very smooth take-off early in December haven completed registration at the three centres. The expectation of govt from the host communities is basically the security of the equipment delivered and installed at the centres. We have been talking with the LGA chairmen, Administrators and Town Unions in this regard. It is the hope of the NDE that the various host communities who automatically inherits these items make adequate plans for its continuity by introducing and other trades of special interest in each locality.

This seems the first outstanding project from the present govt to our dear town Nenwe. These are all the things we prayed for and more will surely come with the help and prayer of all of us.

I must have to apologize to members of NOL for my very very long silence. It never went into extinction but that is one of those things. Keep praying for those us around home and keep giving us encouragement.

NB: The centre is located beside Late Chief Esom Alinta’s house. It Is the former Kingdom Hall of the Jehovah Witness at Nkwuesha.

Thank you all for keeping the flag of NOL flying. Is it Charlie MBC, Okwuruoha Cy Oleh, Dr. Onuora, Jerry Stepnens or my wife Philo? “Aguwa ndi oma, aba l’iro”

Hopefully I shall try to keep you posted with happenings at the centre.


Pat MBC.

I missed this mail.
A bishop?. You may take it as a joke but, but things work this way in many circles especially in these 'new Christian' circles.
My credentials are ok for any position I may target ooo.
  • Their land lord
  • a foundation member (if I decided to )
  • A good 'father and elder' in the community--- Epaa (in Edo language) Helping and resettling everyone irrespective of origin. They say this before me , what is said behind is your business.Remember I will be there on the election day so you will maintain your words as a child of God.
  • These three points above authmoatically grants me a front seat in the church and this is a prelude and great steap towards an episcopal or santity position there. It is not like the older christian churches where SOMEONE said "...leave them to come close to me.." therfore you see people like DAVYMORE and not monetrily rich ANNA -NWA CHILEKE occupy the front seats of FATHER EZEANYA's mass. ..The older ones and historical ones will understand these charcters.
The young man (pastor in Oga charlie church) is good . I had an opportunity to listen to him the first day because I had to know at least some of the members and register them in the associations register for security and insurance.The min of Internal affairs need that. I was though uncomfortable with the -ba-ba-ba-ba.-gru-gbru gbru.-ma-ma-mam-hab-haba-haba aspect. They all spoke and prayed in such a babbel for a while. God in his omnipotence will be able to understand them I suppose.

Poor me I was at sea because as 'an ordinary level /simple' christian I remained at the 'simple prayer book' level...."nna-ayi lo- l'eluigwe,ekele Maria, ekele-eze-nwayi, ekwem la-chukwu, ayi-agba la ntchedowu, omume nke ime -ebere, otito diri nna la nwa ... and simple stuffs like that. Our parish priest speaks Aramaic language which is the language most early christians and Jesus Christ spoke.He is of Lebanees origin. We urge him some times to say a mass with it when his relations visit him for curiousity though.
Is anyone in this forum capable of speaking such tounges like our pastor and understanding himself obviously before God understands him?
Therefore Sir Nwora, no cause for alarm, we are still together... for now? I like simple things and can never change for difficult or complicated issues so you know my position.
On a diffrent note You knoghts will get ready for some horse riding anytime we meet at Nenwe. Is a Knight without a horse complete?Tell us more .Here in Italy knights are called cavallieri ( honourable those who own horses- one of the greatest honours in Italy)
Good Morning

Interesting news! Charles,
Keep up your good work, maybe one day the new church will - not only see you as a social godfather, but their religious head- 'a Bishop'. Just make sure they don't copt you into a new evangelism such that will jeopardize your core catholic beliefs and roots. Its all a matter of 'materialism and morality'.
Happy All Souls' Day!

All Souls' Day

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Prayer for the departed, observances in cemeteries, special meals
Related to
All Saints Day
In Western Christianity, All Souls' Day commemorates the faithful departed. This day is observed in the Roman Catholic Church, churches of the Anglican Communion, Old Catholic Churches, and to some extent among Protestants. The Eastern Orthodox Church observes several All Souls' Days during the year. The Roman Catholic celebration is based on the doctrine that the souls of the faithful which at death have not been cleansed from venial sins, or have not fully atoned for mortal sins, cannot attain the beatific vision in heaven yet, and that they may be helped to do so by prayer and by the sacrifice of the Mass (see Purgatory).
All Souls' Day is also known as the Feast of All Souls, Commemoration of all the Faithful Departed. The official Latin designation Commemoratio omnium Fidelium Defunctorum, on which this last name is based, is rendered more literally in Portuguese Comemoração de todos os Fiéis Defuntos and many other languages. Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos or de los Difuntos) is used in Spanish-speaking countries, and Thursday of the Dead (Yom el Maouta) in Lebanon, Palestine and Syria.
The Western celebration of All Souls' Day is on 2 November and follows All Saints' Day, which commemorates the departed who have attained the beatific vision. If 2 November falls on a Sunday, the Mass is of All Souls, but the Office is that of the Sunday. However, Morning and Evening Prayer (Lauds and Vespers) for the Dead, in which the people participate, may be said. In pre-1969 calendars, which some still follow, All Souls Day is instead transferred, whenever 2 November falls on a Sunday, to the next day, 3 November, which is the case for this year in 2008.
The Eastern Orthodox Church dedicates several days throughout the year to the dead, mostly on Saturdays, because of Jesus' resting in the tomb on Saturday.
