My Wish For Biase

October 1st, will always be remembered as a momentous day in the history of Nigeria. On this day, Nigeria gained her independence from the British after being colonized for several years. Under a new indigenous leadership, 1st October has been celebrated as Independence Day in the country since then. 

Though we are faced with challenges, setbacks and distractions,  it is important to know the history of our country’s independence, and reflects on the efforts of our heroes past.
The idea of being an independent nation, where sovereign power lies with us to determine our future, places a huge responsibility on our shoulders.

The significance of its beautiful story is that this nation has gained respect from the world for the democratic route chosen by it. We can proudly say that Nigeria have not remained the same since independence.

It is therefore our responsibility, as proud citizens of this country, to sincerely perform our duties, in other for us to progress together for the growth and development of our Local Government and our country at large. Keeping the sacrifices of our ancestors in mind, we should put in efforts, to carve a better future for our motherland and the coming generation.

As your leader, I enjoin every son and daughter of Biase, young and old to cease every opportunity to develop self and set attainable goals that will ensure sustainable growth and development to our dear Local Government.

I wish you all a happy new month and gracious independence day Celebration. 
I love you all.

My Wish For Biase

We have successfully and graciously completed the first half of the year 2021, and to this we owe God our gratitude for his love, protection, favor and his unending flow of blessings.
As a people, its time we Forget and let go all the mistakes of the past, our set backs, our disappointments and Look forward to making the most of the remaining six months of the year 2021.

Lets become more aware of that which holds us together at heart; focusing on what we have in common; listening more and showing understanding with less judgement of each other. Rather than war and hates, let peace and dialogue be our leading watch words.
Despite all our differences, most of us share certain hopes for Biase’s future. We want a new and better Biase, where our dreams and aspirations will come true. A Biase where both human and social development leads. 

We may have different opinions or disagree, sometimes fiercely, about how to get there. But the goal is to make Biase a great Local Government.Yes, as we all know, It’s not always a smooth path in getting our dreams and hopes fulfilled. The recognition that we have a common hope and dreams means we can truly achieve the impossible.

I will implore every son and daughter of Biase, to keep away bias and hates and together contribute towards lifting our dear local government to an enviable height.
Let the Youths shun cultism, crime and everything that will jeopardize our vision of a greater Biase. Lets our Communities continue in the path of peaceful coexistence and inter communal activities that will promote love, peace, development and sustainable growth.

I am grateful and thankful for your supports and prayers so far, and i look forward to a more fulfilling days and months ahead of us.
As your leader, i will continuously do my best to attract the presence of government to our land. Ensuring that we get that which we deserve as a people.

May this new month mark a start of a greater Biase And a fresh chapter filled with peace, love, prosperity and sustainable growth to us all.
Happy new month my people, i love you all.
Hon Mrs Ada Charles.


Today marks the international workers day celebration, and it has become a historic significance all over the world and celebrated by the Labor unions worldwide.

Workers with their commitment and efforts, have united to make our Nation’s economy ranked among the global economies, and indeed they deserve the honour for the work they do.

I therefore, cease this opportunity to expressed my gratitude and gratefulness to the true spirit of hard work exhibited by men and women who have tirelessly proven their worth through their commitment and efforts in their respective places of service.

It is of note, that in time past, workers get together and celebrate their strengths, which tend to indicate how effectively they always have been able to and will continue to struggle to bring in positive reforms for the working class of the society.

I therefore, urge us all to safeguard the working class in all respects that we can do. Though this day is celebrated internationally, we should not just deal with this day as a normal day, but also as the true dedication to honour the efforts and activities done by workers.

We should encourage everyone to celebrate this day and also appreciate the efforts of every worker out there, who through commitment to duty have made our economy stabilize.

To every son and daughter of Biase, I wish you a happy New Month. And decree greatness and overflowing grace in all that you do. May this month be another giant step closer to our expected glory.

My Wish For You on This New Year

On behalf of my family and the good people of Biase Local Government Area, I welcome everyone to the year 2021.

2020 was a year of many challenges (from COVID-19 to #EndSARS protests) and disruption in our economy, livelihood and life generally both as individuals and as a Local Government.

The year 2021 is a time for stock, a time to count our blessings, make laudable recoveries and spare a thought for those less fortunate than ourselves as well as for those that have fallen on the unavoidable hard times .

While I commend your prayers, support and courage amidst our challenges, I reiterates my administration commitment to unite us as one indivisible people as well as build a strong and developed Biase.

It is therefore with a sincere passion for humanity and with your unwavering support that I urge you all to be hopeful, tolerant and patient as I optimistically look forward to 2021 to continuing my work of delivering democratic dividends across the eleven wards of Biase.

Going forward, I urge you to disregard the purported blackmail making the round on social media, it’s obvious, as a local government, we’re doing well and our distractors are not comfortable neither are they happy with our achievement so far.

While the matter is been investigated following my official reportage to the appropriate authorities, be assured that the perpetrators of this heinous and inhumane act after investigations will be brought to book and my administration shall remain more focus, unwavering and my people-oriented agenda will be delivered in accordance with stipulated time frame.

I wish you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year as we move forward together in 2021.

It is with great pleasure I extend my happiness and joy to you all on this glorious day that marks our independence day and also a beginning of a new month. 

It has been 60 years since our nation got her independence, for some of us, we may be younger, but we are a great part of this moving train. The grace that has sustain us as a nation, has proven without doubts the love God has for us. We have survived and live with the concept of “Unity in diversity” with diverse language, culture and religion, It is a prove that we have truly grown as a nation and a people. 

Yes indeed there are some setbacks ranging from corruption, poverty, ignorance and lack of jobs ; however one cannot deny that even the most powerful nations have these setbacks. It is therefore important that we take a collective efforts in rebuilding our broken walls.

Waiting and hoping on the government to do everything might not give us the desired results as hoped and prayed.
Let us strive to make our country a better and safe place by following the values and principles taught by our fathers. 

Let us spread awareness, knowledge, values and gain wisdom. Let us make this our Independence Day and new month resolution. 
If we as a local government follows these basic principles, we will grow, and gradually spread the tentacles of our new found light across and eventually it would lead to a massive revival across our country, making Nigeria great again.

I also will use this medium to wish every father /mother and also every son and daughter of Biase a happy new month and a joy filled independence day celebration. 
I love you all.
