I, therefore, give God all the Glory for using us to reach out to these ones. Most importantly, the Prayers rendered by them were indeed overwhelming, I was touched and humbled to the marrow, and I say Amen to them all.
I DEEPLY APPRECIATE THE LOVE AND SUPPORT
It is quite a symbolic Month in the year 2021. As my father Marches on to glory, the replay of those fatherly memories has become more frequent and creating a sublime nostalgia that is tinged with sadness. But I rise each time stronger and very strengthened by those same memories because they bear the marks of sacrifice and the pathways to honor. Thanks to God Almighty who has afforded us the grand opportunity to honor those memories.
My dear family members and relatives, distinguished friends and associates; beloved Rivers people and Nigerians all over the world, we are grateful for all the love you are graciously sending us this period and we are hopeful that as the activities to pay last respect to our beloved father begins on the 8 with a service of songs, you’ll be there all the way. May this March bring you abundant blessings and remarkable testimonies of joy. Amen!
Your friend and brother

ACCORD IS THE FASTEST GROWING PARTY IN RIVERS STATE; ITS CANDIDATE IS THE MOST POPULAR AND MOST LOVED POLITICIAN IN THE STATE ~ Dason
In an article titled ‘Why Wike is afraid of Lulu-Briggs’ published on the Nation’s Newspaper on 12th January, 2019, the spokesman for Dumo Lulu-Briggs Campaign Organization, Mr. Dason Nemieboka declared that Accord is the fastest growing party in Rivers State and that its candidate is the most popular and most loved.
He made this bold declaration while fielding questions from reporters on what seems like an intraparty crisis but which the party’s national leadership has consistently described as a non-issue given some available and glaring facts.
On what he thinks about the claimant’s position, he said, “Sincerely, we would have ignored this completely if we were operating in a different clime. However, with the Nigerian politician, you know that there can be an attempt to blindfold even God. Our preliminary findings and the inconsistency of the claimant points to the fact that he is serving an interest beyond his comprehension. If and when we are duly served the court processes, we shall respond adequately. However, I am certain that the only beneficiary of this distractive tactics would be the judiciary and the press.”
“Both the claimant and his paymasters would discover that these distractive blocks thrown at Chief Dumo Lulu Briggs will become building blocks and steps to victory.”
“The truth is that, the sponsors would be shocked that their very effort at distracting the focused Accord Party and her credible governorship candidate would be the reason why even their members, including commissioners, would flood the Accord party soon.”
“Chief Lulu Briggs is focused on his work. He is disturbed that Rivers people would continue to tolerate bad leadership until May 28. He is disturbed that the people would live under selfish rulers for the period but not whether the judiciary would stoop to be used by accidental powerful men. He has never doubted the courage and integrity of the courts, he knows that once a judge looks into the case he would throw it out and award cost against the plaintiff, for attempting to manipulate the law to get what he doesn’t deserve. Our judges are wise.”
To clear the air on whether or not Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs is dodging service of court papers as being alleged by the claimant, Mr. Dason described such claim as laughable, and stated thus, “Chief Dumo is clearly the most accessible governorship candidate in Rivers State. We are not going to apply dirty tricks because flooring the incumbent on March 2nd is a rather simple task. Anyone who claims that he couldn’t serve processes is economical with the truth. I think that is the agenda create false impressions in an attempt to mislead voters.”
“We know what they are up to and we shall shock them. I think rather than ask a man who is sacrificing to liberate us, we should ask our political tormentors why they are attempting to block the only true challenger they have Their tormentors are those who have vowed to arrest massive development in Rivers State, those who spend hundreds of billions of our commonwealth without recourse to any budget. Those who rule by spreading fear and insecurity, instead of curbing it.”
“They are those who forced themselves on Rivers people and are now worried that God has sent a man to deliver, liberate and stimulate blessings. It is clear that they are afraid of any fair contest. They fear that the dwindling public image can’t secure electoral victory. They are afraid of Dumo Lulu Briggs’ towering personality, hence the attempt to get him out of the race by the back door. Governor Wike clearly dreads a contest against Chief Dumo Lulu Briggs.”
To answer the question on why the party’s Flagbearer is considered a threat when there are countless others, he said, “Do not tell me about scores of political parties or candidates, for us in Rivers State the choice is between going in one accord which is the new and better order, and continuing in the dark days of primitive rulership. Accord is the fastest growing party in Rivers State. The candidate is the most popular and most loved politician in the state and other parties are losing members daily to Accord. So why won’t a desperate party attempt to stop Chief Dumo Lulu Briggs and the Accord party in Rivers State, where a governor would build a motor park and invite angels to commission.”
“Rivers people seek an exposed and compassionate leader who knows the people. They want Chief Dumo Lulu Briggs and so Governor Wike knows that he will be an ex-governor as long as Dumo is on the ballot. DLB as they call him is creating jobs even as a private citizen, he is reducing poverty, and he is educating indigent students in the LGAs. He plans to develop multiple streams of income for the state; tourism, agriculture and industrialization would be the highpoints of the incoming administration. We are worried that Rivers State has the highest rate of unemployment and the current administration is sitting pretty playing politics and seeking to pull down the credible contenders.”
Since the emergence of DUMO LULU-BRIGGS as its candidate, Accord party has in recent time sent a massive shockwave to the Rivers State politcal landscape. And political actors and observers have alluded to the fact that the incumbent governor of the state is the most troubled by the Dumo/Accord tremor. Emerging Pictorial evidences have also given credence to the position that the claimant, Mr. Precious Baridoo is merely a tool meant for creating a perception of crisis to kill the Accord momentum.
SA MEDIA- DLB
Yes, hard decision because I formally joined you in April last year and you received me with warmth and love. You made me feel at home, and we worked hard as a family to reposition the party and stabilize our leader, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, who was then under tremendous pressure. We quickly rolled up our sleeves and labored behind our leader and with you.
Inspired by the leader’s claim to equity, justice, and fair-play we inconvenienced ourselves to ensure success and our beloved All Progressives Congress became bigger and stronger. The claim by the leader that Rivers State should be governed at this time by someone of riverine extraction was believed to be a sincere and patriotic position. Hence we encouraged the membership to follow wholeheartedly.
For those who know Dumo Lulu Briggs intimately, I am an unrepentant team player who puts group interest over self. We didn’t walk the streets because we were idle, we were not insulted because we were hated; instead, we did because sacrifices were required to liberate our state.
Our loyalty to the leader and party was total as is necessary for Party Democracy to thrive. As you all know, the principles of loyalty and fidelity demand justice for all. “To lead and we follow” must always bear the supposition of truth, equity, and justice.
We need to create a Rivers State of expanding opportunities and citizen responsibility. A State growing in diversity and in the bonds of love and ONENESS. Therefore, nothing must be allowed to threaten our sense of a common future.
The facts are known, we took steps to protect the party from sliding into a personal estate, if the PDP in Rivers State is owned by a strong man and our leader in the APC by default becomes a feudal lord, then our state is doomed. I have nothing personal to lose or gain, but we have all to lose if in a democracy we allow the aberration of overlords, hence my decision. While we were together I enjoyed your comradeship and so find it hard to leave, yet, men of conscience would when necessary overlook personal sentiments and emotions.
I am 100% Rivers just as you and so I trust that we shall keep our friendship and possibly realign if and when we feel the need. I bear no grudge or malice and I implore that you take none toward me, what is obvious is that I have to continue my quest to help liberate our state by advancing my vision on another platform.
I take from the experience valuable lessons, and from you, I took warm memories. I pray that God keeps us healthy and able to rescue Rivers State and elect a governor who will give Rivers people quality leadership and service.
Once again, I reiterate that it is about Rivers people and my doors are open, praying that we find ourselves in ONE ACCORD.
God bless us all.
I am ceaselessly yours,
Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs
