The Journey Begins: PDP Needs to Sit Up

Prince Tonye Princewill with PDP Nomination Forms

First of all I am pleased to confirm to you all that in the early hours of Friday the 24th of October, 2014; Prince Tonye Princewill received his PDP Nomination and Expression of Interest forms, to contest the Governorship primaries in Rivers State. To clear all doubt; his PDP forms were delivered to him at his Abuja residence, not by old men, or a paid crowd; but by responsible youths.  Hungry for the type of change and leadership we really need in Rivers State. With the commitment and help of those who truly love Rivers state, this change will come.

This is a new beginning. The opportunity to retrace the path of our dear state is here. The journey ahead will be tough, but I assure you, it will be worth it. Tonye urges his supporters to focus on the uncertainties ahead and not the certainties behind. Others can enjoy being Goliaths, but we should just remain like Davids. We can’t overemphasize the fact that politics is too important to be left to politicians. This is gradually sinking into the minds of many, making our Nigerian politics more a one man, one vote scenario. People matter; we in Team Princewill have always known that and now the politicians all over will know it too.

Natural ways to address root causes of infertility By Prof. Oladapo Ashiru

Prof. Oladapo Ashiru
By Prof. Oladapo Ashiru
Infertility is an alarming modern epidemic affecting more couples than ever. One out of six couples today experience difficulty achieving pregnancy. What was once seen as a woman’s problem is now known to affect men equally.

The natural approach to treating infertility solves the root causes of infertility by addressing all body systems, rather than just focusing solely on the reproductive system. Many couples that can’t become pregnant suffer from a combination of sub-clinical conditions. These conditions can’t cause infertility on their own but, in combination, they can substantially reduce a   couple’s probability of achieving conception.
