@gidiyouthsaward #GYA2013 #BB 7A9DABE7
Ahead of the Second edition of Gidi Youths Awards, the organizing committee is releasing its first official statement.
Gidi Youths Awards prides itself as the awards closest to the people, it is the award that digs in to the grassroots in order to discover hidden achievers, uncover future leaders and reward excellence. The award differs from other conventional awards because it does not only seek to recognize or celebrate successes, but it seeks to highlight and document the ways in which these successes were attained in other to inspire other youths to tap the potential in them and create; Hence, our motto “celebrate to inspire”.
GYA 2013 is the opportunity for people doing extra-ordinary things and those affecting the life of the individuals in the society to be rewarded. The first edition of the award which was an experimental edition took place last year at City Mall, Onikan, Lagos and the first set of winners includes Laredo, Unilagolodo, Shodeponks, TuneUpNaija, and Larryforeman of Unilag fm amongst others.
This year’s Award which is being organized by Zee Africa Magazine and T2T entertainment promises to be bigger and better. The main focus of this year’s award would be on Youth Entrepreneurs, Youths in New and Traditional Media, Youths in the Cooperate world, Outstanding Societal Achievers, Students and Entertainers.
We would also be using this year’s award to start a campaign to add “colours” into the life of the African child. A lot of children in Africa are living in extreme poverty and unhappiness, our intention is to start in our own little way by giving out things that will improve the living conditions of as much children as we can. Hence the use of colours in our campaign this year and we enjoin others to do same so as to pass on the message of Putting Colours in the life of the African child.
A lot is being done by the organizers to make sure everything is in place towards a perfect ceremony. The nominees for this year’s award would emerge through a predetermined formula by the Organizers’ after vetting entries sent in by the general public through online and mobile platforms which would be released soon.
“Our resolve in doing this is not just to celebrate these individuals but to create role models that other youths can aspire to be. We would not just reward them but interview them and listen to their success story so as to inspire others towards success.

If you are among the millions that took the time to sign up at BBM.com , you can start using BBM immediately without waiting in line.
* If you didn’t sign up in advance, don’t worry – we are focused on moving millions of customers through the line as fast as possible.
Our team of developers and engineers has been working around the clock to bring you BBM – and make some upgrades while we’re at it – and some incredible work has been done.

October 9,2013 A friend of mine MOSES IDAHOSA reached me and invited me to come to Benin city for an event, i have known him since 2011 so I thought nothing of it,like no harm can be done after all we go way back and stuff,so I booked my ticket from Lagos and I flew to Benin on the 13th October a Sunday for the event.
After the event we went to chill at a place called Alice hotel in GRA Benin,he had a Suite there and we were with other friends.we all talked, laughed, gisted and all until about 10pm when everyone started leaving gradually,i wanted to call my cab to take me to my own hotel but moses kept on insisting on dropping me and I was like even better would save me paying for cab,so I had to wait for everybody to leave before he could drop me because he said he couldn’t leave his guests to drop me,so when everyone finally left,i was about to stand up but he was adamant on me still waiting but i finally insisted i needed to go because i was leaving for Lagos early the next morning and couldn’t wait anymore,i had to work the next morning.
When i got up to go,he pulled me and slapped me and asked me to sit,i thought it was a joke at first cos I just couldn’t believe it,i brought out my phone to try and call for a taxi,by then i was in shock and angry but he forcefully seized my phone saying i wasn’t going anywhere .
he overpowered me and he tied me up in his hotel,stuffed my mouth so I couldn’t scream,and he raped me several times …again and again and again.
He said his baba said I was the perfect candidate for his rituals and for his upcoming election to take place properly next year so he would win.i was in shock and in denial,i couldn’t even believe it,i have heard stories never thought i would experience it first hand in this cruel way from someone i knew.
Every day for two hours i was raped over and over again by this man ,i was still bound and gagged.he beat me up and did all kinds of things to me,i was helpless and cried bitter tears to no avail
because no one could hear me.
On Tuesday evening he came back and rubbed something on his manhood and said that was what his baba gave him to use to have sex with me,that i would loose my womb and good fortune …I begged and cried but he refused .
At midnight when he tried to use what the baba gave him,his manhood refused to come up,he tried over and over again but his manhood didn’t function,it just didn’t get up again and he hit me in anger many times over but still nothing happened.
He then hurriedly left in annoyance to meet with his baba and in his rush he forgot to lock the door to the suite ,he didn’t use the keys but i didn’t know this,i was still gagged and bound waiting for him to come back in fear and by 9am on the 16th October morning he wasn’t back and the housekeeping came and kept knocking and when no one answered,they went downstairs to get the spare key to open the door but found out the door wasn’t even locked.normally since the time he kept me there he was always there when the housekeeping came and told them he didn’t want to be disturbed.
They came in and found me bound and gagged and helped me out.the names moses used in filling out the forms were fake names and i am presently in Benin city on admission in hospital.I also suffered injuries untold. MOSES IDAHOSA is still at large but the police are on a man hunt for him.his wife and children are in Police custody as you read this.
My names are Ethel Joan Nwadike and i am not ashamed to come out and say i was raped.Please i am using this medium to reach out to the public,anyone that knows anything or sees him should please contact me or the nearest police station at once,he is a dangerous man and his next victim might not be as lucky as i was.
I am sure after raping me he would have probably killed me and dumped my body somewhere and no one would have known how i died….a FRIEND I TRUSTED!
He calls himself Honourable Moses Idahosa and works with the internal revenue service in Benin city, he is still at large and with your help the police can find him..
I thank God for my life and ask you to join me in thanksgiving..This is someone i knew and trusted.it could happen to anyone out there.ladies please be careful who you trust.
Please help me find this man,help me spread this story and pictures as far as you can,you might be his next victim!
N.B: This lady needs help, if you know this guy called ”Honourable Moses Idahosa ” kindly report him to nearest police station to enable Joan get justice.
