The additional forces will allow the Department of Defense to fulfill a Department of Homeland Security request for assistance that acting Secretary of Defense Pat Shanahan approved earlier this month.

See this video below and prove Oshiomhole true. Speaking during the Presidential campaign of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state on Wednesday, Oshiomhole said, “I want to remind the people of Cross River that never ever can you forget a Nigerian leader in the person of former President Olusegun Obasanjo who ceded part of Cross River State to Cameroun because he was pursuing a Nobel Peace prize.” “He handed over the Nigerian territory to a foreign country and reduced Nigerians to become refugees. We can never forgive him.

Oshiomhole, therefore, urged the people of the Bayelsa to re-elect the president whom he believes will not only succeed in the fight against corr…

Voice refers to the verb form which shows whether a transitive verb acts or is actedupon. These situations give rise to two voices -Activeand Passive.
