The Pre-independence efforts of Nigerian youths contributed much to the achievement of independence in Nigeria as a nation. Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Chief Anthony Enahoro and others who championed the cause of Nigerian Independence were young students. They started their agitation for independence as student Unions activist, and carried on formidable groups that challenged colonial rule. Anthony Enahoro was about twenty one years old when he moved the motion for the independence of Nigeria. Yakubu Gwon was only twenty-nine years old when he because the Head of State of Nigeria.

Jonathan hijacked – Paul Unongo By Sun Reporter on December 28, 2014 FROM KENNY ASHAKA, JOS Deputy Chairman of the Northern El­ders Forum, NEF, Dr. Paul Unongo has warned that there would be cha­os in Nigeria in 2015. “For the sake of Nigeria and those of you who publish correctly, you need to advise the people who are running Jonathan that in the interest of Nigeria, they should guarantee us. When we vote them out they shouldn’t try to remain in power. They will overheat the system”, Unongo, a People’s Demo­cratic Party, PDP, chieftain from Benue State warned, adding: “ Everybody is behaving as if the world would come to an end if Jona­than is not President, it is much more likely that Nigeria’s world would come to an end if Jonathan is elected President because he has demonstrated no capacity to run this country. “Jonathan has been hijacked by people telling him that they own the oil wells in Ni­geria.

By Femi Aribisala If anybody would like to be a serial loser of the presidential election in Nigeria, here is a list of what he needs to do; according to the blueprint of Muhammadu Buhari. If one were to decode the guiding principle of Muhammadu Buhari’s presidential ambitions, it would be this: “If at first you don’t succeed, don’t give up until you have failed three more times on the trot.” Nigerians don’t want Muhammadu Buhari to be our president. We have said this repeatedly since 1999. But Buhari simply refuses to take “No” for an answer. When is he finally going to get the message that an overwhelming majority of Nigerians don’t want him? Buhari is the last of yesterday’s men who insist that a country of 170 million people must continue to rely on the leadership of the same old and failed generation. Nigerians have already put paid to the presumptions of Olusegun Obasanjo; who wanted a fourth term; Ibrahim Babangida; who stepped aside and wanted to step back in; and Atiku Abubaka ...

Why PDP and APC disagree over Awolowo. A People’s Democratic Party chieftain in Ogun State, Chief Olukoye Ijaduoye, has said that presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), will not win in the state during next year’s presidential election. Ijuduoye said that Buhari’s military government brutalised Yourba sons upon assumption of power, stressing that the people of the region will not vote for the former Head of State on that account. The PDP chieftain, who spoke in Akure on Sunday said, “The people of Ogun State and the entire South-West will reject the former dictator with our votes for detaining Chief Obafemi Awolowo.” Ijaduoye also lamented the detention of a former governor of the state, the late Chief Bisi Onabanjo. But the Director, Communications, Buhari Campaign Organisation, Mr. Dele Alake, described the allegations as an attempt by the PDP to distract Nigerians from the many problems facing the country. He said Buhari never detained Awo ...

If the great Chief Obafemi Awolowo (of blessed memory) could build liberty stadium, cocoa house, first TV station in Africa and even offer free education and free healthcare plus free flowing clean tap water on revenue from sale of cocoa and groundnuts, why is it that these current leaders did not do any tangible thing from proceeds of sales of crude oil and solid minerals. Enough Stories. VOTE FOR CHANGE.

BEING A PRESS BRIEFING ADDRESS BY NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF Ogun State STUDENTS (NAOSS NATIONAL BODY) DURING A PRESS CONFERENCE TODAY MONDAY 22ND DECEMBER, 2014 AT N.U.U HALL (IWE-IROYIN) OKE-ILEWO, ABEOKUTA, Ogun State. Birds does not just perch on a fence, rather than listening to the voice of the people. According to Late Chief Obafemi Awolowo (of blessed memory), he said and I quote “Intellectual Sagacity of a man is not garrulous, neither symbolically egoism”. But if a daughter of one’ child is beautiful, allow it say without pride. It is on this note that we would want to commend and appreciate His Excellency, Sen.

Awolowo on Buhari after his arrest: "During the period of my house arrest ordered by Major General Buhari when he ousted Shagari's administration, I had a restriction within my room for 24 hours a day, and for somebody who has tried to give others liberty all their adult life, that was absolutely intolerable" — Chief Obafemi Awolowo (1984) But today, same is a progressive and now head an entire region that gained extensively from same liberty fought by this Sage but as my SW friend forget that thing he dead and Buhari is our man now and forgiven on behalf of all by Asiwaju Tinubu the "modern" Nigerian democrat. Wonder shall never end trying to rent Aso Rock for 4 years.
Buhari... Clueless, Corrupt and Ruthless At age 20, Buhari joined the armed forces in 1962. His highest formal education before then was an elementary school leaving certificate in Arabic study. He then enrolled at the Nigerian Military Training College, Kaduna for a three-month preparation course as a cadet. He received additional seven months at Mons Officer Cadet School, Aldershot, UK, as a young trainee cadet. At age 21, Buhari, an ordinary cadet trainee, with no formal education than elementary school leaving certificate and just under one year in the Nigerian Army, with no military training than a trainee cadet, was commissioned Second Lieutenant, and promoted to Platoon Commander 2nd Infantry Brigade, Abeokuta in 1963. One factor contributed to Mr Buhari rapid commission and promotion in 1963. Violence had broken out in Yorubaland over the imprisonment of Chief Obafemi Awolowo and 21 other Yoruba citizens. They were all sentenced to an average of 10 years imprisonment by the Gambari/Ibo coalition g ...

BLACK of the future from Nigeria's foremost federalist, Chief Obafemi Awolowo
Nigeria was created by europeans so they can continue exploiting a people who doesn't understand each other. Here are the words of our fathers: *Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe (1964): "It is better for us and many admirers abroad that we should disintegrate in peace not in pieces. Should the politicians fail to heed this warning, then I will venture to predict that the experience of the Democratic Republic of the Congo will be a child's play if it ever comes to our turn to play such a tragic role." *Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa (1948): "Since 1914, the British government has been trying to make Nigeria one country, but the Nigerian people themselves are historically different in their backgrounds, in their religious beliefs and customs, and do not show themselves any signs of willingness to unite ... Nigerian unity is only a British invention." *Chief Obafemi Awolowo (1947): "Nigeria is not a nation. It is a mere geographic expression. There are no 'Nigerians' in the same sense as there are 'English', 'Welsh', or 'Fren ...

BUHARI’S PLACE AMONG AFRICAN HEROES Brooding over national issues induced about two hours of insomnia in me the previous night. The role of the Nigerian media in misleading the gullible public carried greater part of my attention. I explored this phenomenon in relation to the way media have been working in giving one of our greatest national figures in General Mohammadu Buhari a sectional outlook. This concern took me into the adventurous appraisal of GMB’s personality in the context of contemporary Nigerian society and Africa. I was shocked to discover that someone this week, a public critic from the South drew a conclusion similar to mine, that none of Sir Ahamadu Bello, Chief Obafemi Awolowo,Nnamdi Azikiwe Nelson, Mandela and others measured up to GMB in national service. It was indeed consoling to find someone sharing a seemingly radical conclusion and making it public. This piece is considered necessary in that it will aim at reinforcing that person’s view by presenting an alternative procedur ...
I will lead the rebellion if PDP rig 2015 election. This statement is credited to Alhaji Rotimi Amaeichi. Now that our own south-south Alhaji made this nastic statement no body is complaining but simple because Buhari is a Northerner when he made his own it was a thug of war. Coming back to our Alhaji I know he is just joking because the parallel government that he is talking about Chief Obafemi Awolowo tried it he was imprisoned Chief MKO Abiola also tried he died in prison.Nigeria is more than an individual.

Tambuwal’s Defection: Why Yoruba Must Redeem Themselves By Onyiorah Paschal: “Tinubu used his political muscle to convince gullible Yoruba legislators to vote against a Yoruba woman, Mulikat Akande, in a post that was specifically designed by the PDP as a benefit for Yoruba. He then got the same mumu Yoruba politicians to vote instead for Aminu Tambuwal; a scion of the Sokoto Caliphate with Hausa/Fulani agenda. This is something that could never have happened the other way around. It is inconceivable that a Hausa/Fulani legislator would be persuaded to give something that has been zoned to Hausa/Fulani to a Yoruba man. To put it bluntly, the Huasa/Fulanis are not stupid” – Femi Aribisala. Speaker Aminu Tambuwal collects Sokoto governorship form Premium Times Hmmm! Who then are stupid? Anyway, the above bitter truth remark extracted from Mr. (Pastor) Femi Aribisala’s Tuesday column in the Vanguard Newspaper, published on November 4,2014, under the rubric: Aminu Tambuwal is a traitor, clearly spea ...
Jonathan hails HID at 99 …looks forward to attending 100th birthday President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has congratulated the matriarch of the Awolowo family, Hannah Dideolu Awolowo, on the occasion of her 99th birthday anniversary on Tuesday. An Aso Rock statement said the President and his family “join millions of admirers of the late nationalist, renowned political leader and sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo in wishing his ‘Jewel of Inestimable Value’ very happy birthday celebrations.” Jonathan prayed for God to grant Awolowo many more years of worthy service as the matriarch and moral compass of the great Awolowo political dynasty which continues to play a commendable role in national development and progress. “President Jonathan looks forward to personally participating in the celebration of Chief (Mrs.) Awolowo’s landmark 100th birthday next year to honour the highly-revered spouse of one of Nigeria’s famous founding fathers. “He prays that God Almighty who has blessed Chief (Mrs.) Awolow ...
