Check out Oluwo of Iwoland's speech at 2nd Edition of Bola Tinubu Youth Summit

Oluwo of Iwoland at the second edition of Bola Tinubu Youth Summit that took place at Muson Center, Lagos.

Here is an excerpt from Oluwo speech.

"Unarguably, there are problems in Nigeria:the leadership specifically. Disappointedly, the youth are    follow-follow at the detriment of their future, exercising phobia to approach and break out of the box. They have ignorantly resign to their background to put their back on the ground. They put a bar beyond which they cannot rise, forgetting in haste that no one will willingly vacate the leadership seat for them unless they demand for it. You have to be bold to liberate yourself. You can't make an omelette without breaking the shell. Your number one sacrifice is to summon courage and boldness. I'm a living example. My royal house never tasted the crown since more than 400years. I challenged the status from no one to somebody. Barrack
Obama is another example. He was nobody before. Your daily complaints will continue pulling you down until you are ready to emancipate your mind. You should all go into politics if you don't want your laws to be enacted by road side mechanics"

According to the story shared by a social media user,on his way back from Etche along the Port Harcourt airport road that leads to Obiri Ikwerre,he saw two cows lying lifeless on the road and also a damaged Toyota Camry car on same road.

He alighted from the car, got very close to the accident scene,only to discover that a Facebook friend of his Miss Nengi was the passenger in the damaged Toyota Camry car.According to the driver of the Camry Mr George, while he was on speed two cows ran out of the bush towards their direction, he lost control of the car and that's all he could remember.

In all of this, there was no trace of the Fulani cattle rearers. They fled deep into the bush with their remaining cows.

Passersby who came to render help all spoke in unison about the daily occurrence of Fulani cows always running into cars.They said the last experience on that same road was a sad one because two human lives were lost and also pleaded to the Rivers State Government to do something about it.

A farmer at the scene who is also a pastor in OPM CHURCH lamented bitterly on how the produce from his farms has been destroyed by the Fulani cattle rearers and their cows.
