LOCAL SKILLS CORNER: HOW TO MAKE LIQUID SOUP
This initiative is designed to contribute towards human capital development by promoting skill acquisition among the online community.
It involves a showcase of local skills practiced in different parts of Nigeria, which can be easily learnt by indigenes to improve their quality of life and help supplement their income.
The skills are taught using an easy to understand stepwise approach, which allows for a better understanding of the underlying processes. This edition will be focusing on how to make liquid soap from scraps of soap.
The following are steps involved in making liquid soup:
Collect soap scrap. You can make liquid soap from scrap soap you have around the house. Scrap soaps are little chunk/left over of soap.
Make soap paste: With the use of a stove or gas cooker, pour water into a clean pot. As soon as the water boils, pour the scrap soap into the pot.
Boil: For full dissolution of the mixture so as not to separate later, it is important that the paste be left to boil for 30minute.
Stir: Stirring is an important part of this process. It is important to stir well from time to time to disintegrate the soap thoroughly.
Add fragrance: Adding fragrance to the soap is not compulsory. It depends on the user. Fragrance makes the soap smell nice
Liquid soap is ready.
2015: URHOBO IN PDP WON’T WORK AGAINST UDUAGHAN — IGBUYA
Majority Leader of Delta State House of Assembly, Chief Monday Igbuya, has said that the Urhobo in Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, were determined to follow the lead of Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan in choosing the next governor of the state.
Igbuya, who is also the national vice-chairman of Urhobo Political Forum, UPF, said Urhobo politicians in PDP would only back an Urhobo person for the governorship, if such a candidate emerges from within the PDP.
He was reacting to claims by Urhobo Progress Union, UPU, that the Urhobo nation would present a governorship candidate irrespective of the political permutations set by PDP and Governor Uduaghan.
Restating his loyalty to PDP and Uduaghan, the state leader of the PDP, Igbuya said it would be out of place for him and other Urhobo politicians in PDP to work at variance with whatever choice was made by the party on the next governorship candidate of the party.
He said: “I am a member of PDP and also a member of UPF and I speak for UPF and members of PDP in UPF. No member of UPF or PDP has denied the fact that Governor Uduaghan is the leader of the party in the state. No member of PDP in Central senatorial district has denied the fact that Uduaghan is our leader.
“It is true that UPU is a socio-cultural group and has not been made a political group. In a UPU statement, Chief Mike Okenini claimed that UPU will present a governorship candidate come 2015. I pray that happens in PDP, otherwise, how does Chief Okenini want people like us, who are members of PDP to vote for UPU candidate should he emerge from another party like All Progressives Congress, APC or other parties?
“Chief Okenini should know that he cannot speak for me as a member of PDP on matters of politics or UPF. His publicity ends with matters concerning UPU. For the avoidance of doubt, and for more emphasis, Uduaghan is the leader of our party in the state, where ever he directs us, we will surely go as members of PDP and UPF. If the governor comes out with an Urhobo candidate, is Chief Okenini saying we should ignore our leader’s directive? On Uduaghan’s directive we stand, those of us in PDP and UPF.”

UDUAGHAN WARNS NIGERIANS AGAINST RUMOUR MONGERING
Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, has described rumour mongering as the major problem his administration has had to contend with, advising the people of the state to desist from such attitude.
The governor, at a symposium/awards ceremony of the Federal Government College (FGC) Old Students’ Association, Class of 1972/74, at the weekend, called for attitudinal change. The theme of the symposium was ‘’Giant Strides in the 21st Century’’.
Uduaghan identified attitudinal change, climate change, ICT, critical infrastructure such as power, transportation, as key in the transformation of the country.
The governor, who was honoured with a top class award at the occasion, bemoaned that the country has not grown as it was supposed to be, observing that the country, in 1970s, when he was at the college, was making tremendous progress in virtually all fields of human endeavours.
“Nigeria at that time was moving at a pace that if it was allowed to continue, by today we would not be talking about stunted growth. Using our experience at Federal Government College, Warri in projecting the growth of this country, our growth rate has been very slow.”
He recalled that Ughelli and Sapele Power Plants had combined installed generation capacity of 2,100 megawatt but noted that about two years ago, the stations were generating less than 50 per cent of their installed capacity.
According to him, the growth of the country was not just a stunted one but took a downward spiral, explaining that if the former was the case, the two power stations should have been producing at their installed capacity.
Uduaghan blamed the ugly trend on poor attitude on the part of both leaders at all levels and bad followers, stressing, “Leadership and follower-ship are two big challenges.”
He challenged leaders at all levels to develop the right attitude, set their priorities right and avoid rumour mongers and blackmailers who are bent on diverting them from their good intentions and programmes.
