With a profuse apology for belated appearance, we are now in a new week with a brand new competition – the battle of First Ladies of the six chosen states. It is the battle of wives of state governors.
First, the Covid – 19 updates. Yesterday, Saturday, June 27, 2020, 779 new cases were confirmed from 22 states. Six of them were our chosen ones. Rivers State has 68 cases; Enugu, 56; Oyo, 41; Kaduna, 19; Borno, 9 and Kano, 4.
The first three states are PDP states, and their total cases are 165 while the last three states belong to APC. When cases are put together, you have 32. You now see APC is ahead in Covid – 19 competition.
NOW, THE BATTLE OF AMAZONS.
We ended WK 2 with the battle of job creation. It was for the governors. Now, we are in WK 3, and we want to see what their wives are doing in the area of human development. So this week we are to look into their ‘PET PROJECTS’ with the aim to see how they bring solutions to our social problems, how the ‘Pet Projects’ reposition the girl-child; how they tame, develop our wild world, and how much value they have added to our existence.
We take them one by one. We start the last two; Kaduna and Rivers states.
