Anyone conversant with the Brekete Family Program would know how expectant members of the family are for the arrival of Monday. Of course, it’s Monday and it’s with delight that we bring you highlights from today’s Talk Magazine and reality program. We had in attendance members of the public; some of who came with their complaints while others are students who have completed their skill acquisition training at the Brekete Academy with careful tutelage from our qualified facilitators.
Brekete Academy is an empowerment platform that seeks to add value to lives. Through the platform, members of the public who have taken advantage of the opportunity have realized that they have nothing to lose and that Knowledge is power. They are not only empowered financially, but they have also upgraded their skills and are now more exposed. In other words, they bear solutions.

The ordinary President, Dr. Ahmad Isah expounded on the importance of unconditional love and unity irrespective of the tribe, cultural background and religious beliefs. We should be bound by love as that is a determining factor for a better and progressive Nigeria. He encouraged that every citizen be exposed and not be limited to an environment. In his words, ‘cross-cultural exposure upgrades people’s mentality’. In essence, when you meet and interact with people of a different race, you learn and respect each man’s cultural and traditional beliefs without offending anyone.
The series of cases treated were focused on inhumane treatment. Every listener and viewer sure had a lesson or two to take home. Madam Hilda, an aged woman who hails from Imo state has been in Abuja for about 6 weeks. She came with the complaint that her son has been in SARS’ custody for a while her Daughter-in-law, who is currently married to another man, sold his properties and relocated abroad with her three kids. The wife in question abandoned her step-son and did not leave him with anything to survive on and she did not make any move to seeing that her husband is released.
The investigation will commence as to the whereabouts of the Son and the Wife’s involvement in His arrest. The Police will also investigate the kind of business he is involved in, though the son stated that his father used to sell musical instrument but the supposed wife sold everything and went with the money.
Kauna Adamu, a 17- year old girl who is seven months pregnant, is a rape victim. She was taken to Zaria as a maid by a woman named, Julie who told her parents that she had the intention of making her life better. Unfortunately, the woman tricked her parents and abandoned poor Kauna in Zaria; she then left for Abeokuta. Kauna was raped by her boss’s husband. To escape, she sought refuge in a neighbor’s house where she passed the night and on the next day, returned to her mother. The situation she found her mother was not good and because she didn’t want to complicate issues, she kept the rape issue to herself.
Kauna’s mother is down with Diabetes and has already been booked for an arm amputation. It was concluded that, a Diabetic supplement from Dr. Ruzu will be sent to Kauna’s mother so she will commence treatment immediately. Barrister Ogo also offered to take care of young Kauna until she puts to bed and assured that the man who carried out the act and the woman involved will face the wrath of the law.
On a lighter note, Otaigbe Eyimearelu, a visually impaired ex-corps member, who during his compulsory one year service was with the Human Rights Radio, applauded the management and the members of the Brekete Family for the good things that the media house represents. He expressed his gratitude to the Ordinary Dr. Ahmad Isah for allowing him even when he was rejected by other organizations. He is a graduate of Law from Ambrose Alli University and has not regretted working at the Media City. Ordinary Dr. Ahmad asked if he has in any way been impacted during his stay, he responded affirmatively and was gifted a sum of N200, 000 as compensation for his work while here.
The Ordinary President advised that no one should be treated as a non-entity. No one should be looked down on because we are not perfect. Also, we should realize that every individual is still being modified by God.
