Youths in Political History of Nigeria: Historically, the political story of Nigeria would be incomplete without the indelible records of past youth participation and involvements. 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. Late Isaac Boro, fresh from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka was in his thirties when he formed the Niger Delta volunteer Force and later fought for the emancipation of his people. Finally if the youths of my generation will copy ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

COMRADE TIMI FRANK ON GEJ'S PERFORMANCE. . . . . . . . I have always argued that Nigerians don’t need adverts to know a leader who has truly served them. Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Alhaji Ahmadu Bello and Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe were not recognised and revered based on their ability to dramatise imaginary achievements on television, radio and in newspapers. Finally, as Jonathan declares, it will do him a lot of good to show Nigerians verifiable achievements of the last six years upon which he wishes to seek re-election, rather than the cosmetics he is parading in the media. What has been his record of justice, development, and social engineering? Has he ruled progressively or retrogressively? With the level of unemployment in the land, pesky power supply, insecurity, dwindling revenue to states, poor healthcare, poor educational facilities, social collapse and biting poverty, Nigerians will surely decide for change when the time comes. God bless Nigeria.
RE: NORTHERN YOUTHS AND LEADERSHIP QUESTION. If you know your history, then you'll know where you are coming from. -BOB NESTA MARLEY Bah! It's with trepidation & dismay, I read on social media the arguments nay, support borne out of ethnoreligious fanaticism of General Muhammadu Buhari & other northern elites by some Hausa/Fulani youths who apparently don't know their history. The history of leadership in Northern Nigeria shows the moral bankruptcy of Buhari & co. This however, is no case for President Goodluck Jonathan & others from the Southern Nigeria. Nevertheless, an appraisal of our past & present leadership is inevitable as a run up to the 2015 Presidential election. As the British colonial rule in Nigeria chameleoned to independence in 1960, Nigeria had a central govt headed by Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa as the Prime Minister while Sir Ahmadu Bello was unarguably the northern political czar. Nigeria was by then practising regional govt with 100% resource control. However, Chief Obafemi Awolowo t . ...

Engr. Rabiu Kwankwaso is not like the typical politician. He is a student of Aminu Kano and Chief Obafemi Awolowo! He does not believe that getting an education in the best Universities in the world is the exclusive preserve of the rich. That is why any graduate from Kano state who graduates with a first class or a 2nd class upper is automatically qualified for government scholarship for post-graduate studies. This is done 100% on merit, and not based on connections! Because of this, you don't have to be from a wealthy family background to enjoy the best things of life. This is in line with the Aminu Kano and Chief Obafemi Awolowo philosophy of a people-centered governance!!
Chief Obafemi Awolowo was the BEST President Nigeria never HAD..So painful!
Wisdom from the late and great Chief Obafemi Awolowo. Happy Independence Day.
NIGERIA IS 54 TODAY What is today known as Nigeria came into being in the year 1914, when the northern and southern protectorates of Nigeria was merged together into becoming one indivisible colony by the first Governor General of Nigeria, Mr. Frederick Lord Lugard of Great Britain. Thus, a great country NIGERIA was born. After 46years of British rulership with many Governor Generals, Nigeria finally got her freedom from the British authority in the year 1960 when the British flag known as "Jack" was lowered down and our own flag was hoisted to the admiration and jubilation of Nigerians. Hence, our independence. However, the independence we enjoy today wouldn't have been achieved if not for the duggedness, tireless and persistent character and effort of our foremost fathers and nationalists namely: Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Alhaji Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Alhaji Ahmadu Bello, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Chief Michael Okpara, etc, all late. After her independence, Nigeria adopted and embraced the parliamentary system ...

So would I if told, with the speaker expecting me to agree, that Chief Obafemi Awolowo, after declaring hunger a legitimate weapon of war and vowing to deploy it (through a total blockade) in strangling the Biafran war effort, was involved in a racket that supplied food (and other relief materials) to the Biafrans. I would react the same way if anyone alleged that Prof. Wole Soyinka, despite his obvious loathing for the great evil some believed the Abacha regime to be, was involved in laundering the so-called “Abacha loot” or engaged in some other unscrupulous venture with Gen. Sani Abacha. Yes, I would not believe it if anyone told me any of the above. And m ...

In one of my previousarticle, I maintained that Chief Obafemi Awolowo though was a leader who soughtoffice through democratic means, was more of a social welfarist than ademocrat. Why did I say this? We grew up to know Awolowo as the leader ofYoruba, I grew up to hear from my parents (who are Ijebu) and most adults inYoruba land that we owe so much to Awolowo. Yoruba belief in Awolowo was so strong that amyth was created between 1978 and 1983 that they see him in the moon. Why do Yoruba peoplethink or believe in Awolowo that much? Why did they brand anyone not in Awocircle as Anti-Yoruba? I grew up believingthat Chief Richard Akinjide, AMAAkinloye, Victor Olunloyo, Samuel Akintola because they are not on Awo side,until I met Chief Richard Akinjide in 2000. After all, Awolowo provided freeeducation and I am a beneficiary of free education. Awolowo brought the firstTelevision to Africa, built the Liberty Stadium; what about the Cocoa Housebuilding? For all these, our parents (in Yoruba land) belie ...

Prince, i think you should consider a different phraseology for this stuff here: "...threw your hero to jail and buried the keys". Some of your style of addressing Chief Obafemi Awolowo besmirches the memory of the only Nigerian i hold in high esteem. As an advocate of detente between Igbos and Yorubas i will be disappointed if you don't do that. I have fought these Yoruba - Igbo battles so much in my earlier years and i can take up the argument from either side and be convincing. Nobody can win these arguments because they are based on issues that are the essence of our being.

Shagari, Alhaji Shehu (Usman Aliyu) b. c. 1924,, Shagari, Nigeria president of Nigeria from 1979 to 1983, leader of the National Party. A member of the Muslim Fulani people of Northern Nigeria and a descendant of a tribe that had founded his home village, Shagari studied at a secondary school in Kaduna and taught school briefly before entering politics in 1954 and being elected to the federal House of Representatives. Thereafter he held several posts and was a member of every administration after Nigeria's independence in 1960. Upon the end of military rule (1979), he was elected president of Nigeria, defeating his major rival, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, by a narrow margin. Alhaji Shehu Shagari was Secretary, Sokoto branch of the Northern Peoples' Congress (NPC) from 1951-56 and represented Sokoto West between 1954 and 1958 in the House of Representatives in Lagos after which he held several public positions. In 1958 he was parliamentary Secretary to the then Prime Minister, acting Federal Minister of Commerc ...

THE EXCLUSION OF OGU (EGUN) PEOPLE FROM THE LAGOS AND OGUN NATIONAL CONFERENCE DELEGATES' LIST The continuous marginalization of the Ogu (Egun) people of South-West Nigeria is common knowledge. The late sage and Premier of the then Western Region, Chief Obafemi Awolowo has remained the reference point in leadership not only because of his selflessness and capability, but primarily because of his inclusiveness. For example, it was Chief Awolowo who appointed the Aholu, Claudius Dosa Akran from Badagry as the Minister for Economic Planning and Community Development (1958 – 1964) in the then regional government. At the same time, Chief D. K Aihonsu (from Ipokia, present day Ogun State) was a member of the Regional House of Representatives through the support of Chief Awolowo. Since the demise of this sage (and the leadership style he represented), there have been spirited efforts to present the South-West Nigeria as a mono-ethnic region. In this vain, political representation (other than local elective pos ...

This is 2014 and in just about seven months from now,the country would be holding a general election of unprecedented significance given that since 1999 except for the brief period of our late president Yar’Adua, the presidency has been in the South. For the North,no other election in the history of Nigeria is capable of making or marring the political influence and position of the people of the Northern region of Nigeria as the 2015 presidential election. For the majority of Northerners who are by far more politically conscious of the two broad regions that make up Nigeria, it would have been unnecessary to remind our people . However,we have in recent times been witnessing a dangerous trend, a divide and rule tactics by the current government aimed at weakening the determination of the North to reclaim its traditional position of providing leadership for Nigeria polity. Only recently Alhaji Haliru Mohammed and his likes met with President Goodluck Jonathan, Pledging allegiance and promising to betray ...
I sincerely believe that the 2015 elections will start in Ekiti State tomorrow. The major challenge Nigeria has faced since independence during civilian rule is that of persons in Government at the Centre using official means of coercion (soldiers, policemen, SSS, etc) to have their way at the polls. Of course, resistance has always come either immediate or shortly afterwards. Courts have had to step in to correct some of these shenanigans. I don't think Ekiti State will be different. But I pray we’ll not go the way of the First or Second Republic after the Ekiti State election tomorrow. Why? If harm should come the way of opposition leaders by way of death or illegal detention using official means for partisan purposes as it was done to Late Chief Obafemi Awolowo in the First Republic, e go get as e be o!
In the words of Chief Obafemi Awolowo, "i never pray not to fall but to be able to get up after i fall",
Akintola tried to but did not succeed in selling the Yorubas to the northern feudalists. The Yorubas, back when they had some spine and before your man, the impostor from Osun State, Ahmed Tinubu created a chasm between Moslems and Christians in Yorubaland, resisted the feudalists with every fiber of their being. The operation "wetie" of the resistance movement to Akintolas shenanigans witnessed the houses of his supporters burnt to the ground and some Obas who supported him deposed by the people. The cataclysmic events in Western Nigeria, consequent upon Akintolas romantic adventures with those northern feudalists was what led to the January 15, 1966 coup and the assasination of Akintola and his northern conspirators, Ahmadu Bello and Tafawa Balewa, in the fermentation of trouble in Yoruba land. Chief Obafemi Awolowo vacated his position for Akintola to move to lagos and oppose the feudalist government of Tafawa Balewa in the federal legislature. You should remember that Awo was invited first to form tha ...

LASU: Fashola’s unwinnable war BY ABIMBOLA ADELAKUN Students of the Lagos State University, a week ago today, took their aluta to a melodramatic level by camping out in front of the governor’s office to register their grievances against their mind blowing university tuition. It was a comical sight of sorts, watching the students “cooking beans” in front of the Government House. Simultaneously, it was a scene that elicited deep worries. Protest over inflated rate of school fees is by no means limited to LASU. Students of the University of Lagos have had to take to the streets to protest a certain fee hike; the same obtains for students of the University of Port Harcourt and Obafemi Awolowo University. First, a quick question: Where is the Academic Staff Union of Universities in all these? During ASUU’s last strike action in 2013, part of its defence was that it was “fighting for the students” and that with time, students would realise the strike was for their ultimate benefit. It is not a yea ...
June 12 message. Today is another significant day in the history of Nigeria.

There're many hypotheses trying to explain or justify the annulment of June 12 election. Some said Abiola was a creditor of the federal government, or that a few characters would not like to see him be president of Nigeria. Some said it was because of what he did when he was in NPN that he betrayed or opposed Chief Obafemi Awolowo, a fellow Yoruba politician. He's also alleged to have sponsored military coups in Nigeria. But, no form of arguments would justify the annulment of the June 12 1993 peaceful presidential elections. The fundamental thing about June 12 was that an election was held and Abiola won. June 12 came with a manifesto and programs of hope. Millions of Nigerians voted massively in favour of Abiola in the best election ever conducted in the history of Nigeria. But Nigeria and Nigerians lost the opportunity of being led by Abiola. It's sad because no one knows if Nigeria would have become a better place today or even one of the greatest countries on earth. We will never know what we missed ...
6 Years after, Adedibu Lives on Late Chief Lamidi Ariyibi Akanji Adedibu (24 October 1927 – 11 June 2008) was an aristocratic PDP power broker in Oyo State, Nigeria. Former President Olusegun Obasanjo described him as the "father of the PDP" Adedibu was born on October 24, 1927 at Oja-Oba, Ibadan, a member of the Olupoyi chieftaincy ruling house. Adedibu entered politics in the 1950s, when he became a member of the Ibadan People's Party, and then joined the Action Group under Chief Obafemi Awolowo. Later he was a member of the National Party of Nigeria (NPN) led by Chiefs Adisa Akinloye and Richard Akinjide. He became an increasing force in politics during the military reign of General Ibrahim Babangida, during which the NPN exploited the open ballot electoral system into an instrument of electoral fraud. His brand of politics was described as a blend of populism and raw thuggery that often compelled either violent loyalty or violent opposition. It was said that nobody assumed any political post in Oyo ...

SIR AHMADU BELLO THE SARDAUNA: THE TOUCH BEARER Our cover story on Sir Ahmadu Bello, the Sardauna of Sokoto, in this edition of Inside Watch Africa could not have been more challenging and exhilarating for us because a lot of digging had to be done to have the kind of perspective we had in writing this story; so a lot of credit should go to the very many resource persons whose materials we had access to, particularly John P. Paden; a former Professor in the Institute of Administration, Ahmadu Bello University and the first Dean of the Faculty of Management Sciences, Bayero University Kano, who has written many books including the autobiography of Sir Ahmadu Bello entitled, “Ahmadu Bello – Sardauna of Sokoto”.

Although, they all received western education and relatively “modern’’ in outlook, they were sharply divided on certain issues. ...

Another important reason Jonathan should continue is that he is a democrat in all ramifications. Even some elements of the opposition attest to the democratic disposition of the President. President Jonathan’s tolerance of the opposition is unprecedented in the annals of Nigeria. In the first republic, the leader of the opposition Chief Obafemi Awolowo and his supporters were harassed and imprisoned. Many neutral observers saw this as a form of political persecution. In the second republic, the ruling NPN allegedly tried to intimidate and capture all States by all means including the Ondo State Gubernatorial election “victory” of 1983 which caused an uproar in Ondo state.

Protocol It feels good to once more visit the University of Nigeria, Nsukka.

When I talk about what has gone wrong I am not just talking about the broken infrastructure in our universities,the lecturers that have fled the country, the empty libraries with outdated books and journals or rotten hostels that are not go ...
why do they hate the Igbos so much? The world hates who is FAR BETTER than them. A people they cannot annihilate. Examples: German hated the Jews and gased them: over 6 million to death under Gas Chamber in Dachau, near Munich Germany. The Jew is a race the world cannot do without. From Wall Street Banks and Investments Houses to the Colgate products you use every morning, to Pampers, Jeans, Palmolive, McDonalds, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Fanta, Washing Machines, etc. are the Intellectual Property of the Jews. Ahmadu Bello of the Northern Nigeria said in one of the recorded in Youtube, that he hated the Igbos because any region they go and live, they can establish themselves with little or nothing, and build houses and own properties. So the North have to react against them before their land be taken away. This problem of the Jews in Germany was that the economy rested on the Jews. Same problem are not perculiar against the Igbos.

Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Nnamdi Azkiwe, Odumegu Ojukwu, MKO Abiola, Anthohy Enahoro, Augustus Aihomu, Saraki, Sanni Abacha, Yar'adua etc all died. People wrote papers and gave inscriptions about them. Dora Akunyili recently died. So many were said and written about her. What would peolple say after you. Or have forgotten that death is forthcoming? You Mr Lecturer, State Governor, Co-ordinator, Manager, VC, Minister, Employer, Chairman, Commissioner, HOD, etc just have it that something would be written after you.
It is true dt my being a commissioner in Lagos State has exposed me to d nitty- gritty of politics.

I kept wondering if anybody has ever claimed the right to free education? After what my mentor the Late Chief Obafemi Awolowo initiated,we believe in Him then but you all keep lying about his legacy?

This what I have to say to you before getting credit for what you stole,people are not blind nor deaf,bcos this will be "CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE" Watch out and speak up
