BABA-NA-BABA ON 2015 VIBES Imo House of Assembly Second Term Seekers and challengers “Ranking” is a common word in the very crucial arm of government, called legislature. Whether at national, state or local levels, the word “ranking” is obtainable whenever an elected lawmaker returns for a second term at the expiration of his first tenure in office. Ironically, the Nigerian constitution of 1999, as amended, unlike the position of the governor to a state has no limit to number of times a candidate can seek elective position as a member of state House of Assembly, House of Representatives and Senate. The limitless number of years for anybody seeking to be a lawmaker in Nigeria responds to international standard practice obtainable in developed climes where experience in the business of lawmaking is an inevitable ingredient constituents seek before giving a legislature mandate to represent their interest at any category of the lawmaking bodies. In Nigeria and indeed, Imo State, the “ranking” stat ...

Governor Okorocha, soon would be 'EX' Veteran politician and elder-statesman, Senator Arthur Nzeribe, has vowed to resist the re-election of the governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha in 2015. Senator Nzeribe, who described Okorocha as, “a governor full of baggage” boasted that a new governor would emerge in the state in 2015. He described nine key governorship aspirants in the state as belonging to the “analogue age.” Authur Nzeribe —“On May 29, 2015, Douglas House in Imo State will play host to a baggage-free brand new governor. The fresh governor will emerge from one of the two distinct groups in Imo politics, made up of 15 candidates. “Nine politicians out of the two identified groups can be regarded as analogue or old political activists, the rest six are digital or new political activists.” “In the last three governorship elections in Imo, I looked the other way when the governors were being installed by outsiders. In this very project of seeing that decent and straightforward p .. ...
South-eastern Nigeria was one of the initial 12 states created during the Nigerian Civil War, which later broke into the present Akwa Ibom State and Cross River State. South-east became the name of one of the six geo-political zones in the country in the 1990s consisting of Abia State, Anambra State, Ebonyi State, Enugu State and Imo State. The local language in this region is Igbo. Before the British colonial government, South-eastern Nigeria was home to many ethnic groups such as the Igbo, Ijaw, Ibibo, and Efik. These groups mostly had democratic systems of government and several kingdoms, such as Nir Akwa Akpa (Calabar), Aro Confederacy and Opobo which were huge influences in the region. Abia State – God’s Own State Abia State occupies around 5,834km2, and is bordered on the north and north-east by Anambra, Enugu and Ebonyi, to the east and south-east by Cross River and Akwa Ibom, to the south by Rivers and to the west by Imo. It has heavy rainfall of about 2,400mm per year between April to October ...

BISHOP LAMBASTS GOV. OKOROCHA AT ANGLICAN SYNOD SAYS HIS GOVERNMENT IS A FAILURE As Governor Lashes Ohaji/Egbema Youths For Local Gin And Hemp Intake The bishop of Diocese of Ohaji/Egbema, the Rt. Rev. Chidi Oparaojiaku has said that the impact of Governor Rochas Okorocha’s government is not being felt in Ohaji/Egbema Local Government Area of Imo State. The cleric made this remark while addressing Governor Okorocha and his entourage during the thanksgiving service for the 2014 Anglican Synod of the Diocese of Ohaji/Egbema held at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Mgbirichi Ohaji. In what looked like a shocker to the Governor and other government officials at the event, the embittered Obazu Mbieri-born bishop among other things told the Governor that his government had not constructed a kilometre of road in the area after three years of its existence: ‘… For a very long time now, I have written to you (Governor Okorocha) for your government to do some projects in Ohaji/Egbema. Your government has not con ...
PEOPLES DAILY NEWSPAPER EDITORIAL: "Demonization of Northerners" - July 9, 2014 Last month, Nigerian security forces arrested over 480 nationals of Northern extraction in Abia State on the suspicion that they were Boko Haram members escaping from the North-east where the Islamic sect is waging a sustained insurgency. They were being ferried in 50 buses, heading toward Port Harcourt, Rivers State. Unofficial reports had it that they were migrant workers heading South, where they believed they would find menial work. Indeed, they were fleeing from a part of the country whose economy has been ravaged by the rebellion. Others were said to be taking newly weds to their spouses in the South. Footage of the young men, left in the open grounds of an Abia detention facility in Aba, the commercial capital, went viral. The security forces gloated over a’ big harvest’ in the counter-insurgency campaign, in spite of the fact that they found no implicating evidence on the suspects. But no matter, that they were Nor ...

UWAJUMOGU TASKS CHURCHES ON UNITY, TOLERANCE. The Speaker, Imo state House of Assembly, Rt. Hon Benjamin Uwajumogu, has called on religious organizations in the South East zone of the country to work in harmony among themselves to spearhead the preaching of unity, peace and tolerance to the people. Rt. Hon. Uwajumogu, who stated this at his Umuihi Country home in Ihitte-Uboma council area, while addressing a cross-section of religious leaders during the event to mark his 49th birthday anniversary, also urged them to always inculcate in their adherents the spirit of oneness and patriotism, stressing that such were the ingredients needed by the zone to chart a better course for the people. He charged Ndigbo to see themselves as their brother’s keeper, pointing out that this was the better time for Ndigbo to come together, against any party or religious affiliation and key into the Igbo agenda. According to him, “Ndigbo should be encouraged by all relevant stakeholders in the zone to properly key into th ...

As majority Imolites demand for Charter of Equity among the three senatorial zones in Imo State ,namely Orlu, Okigwe and Owerri Zones for 2015 No 1citizen of the Eastern Heartland. It is pertinent to note that from the creation of Imo state in 1976, Owerri Zone has been the least zone to supritend the affairs of the state under Late Chief Evan Enwerem for only eighteen calendar months unlike other Zones of not less than Eight years respectively. It is on good note that one of the advantages of Charter of Equity positively addressed without fear ir favour,is that it resolves the issue of Injustice,Unfairness and above all Respect. Thereby ushering un quantified unity among the zones that made up the state. As a popular saying goes, He who wants to come to Equity must come with clean hands.As Owerri Zone prepares to benefit from this overstayed injustice come 2015,one also expects the apostle and agents of this forclosed charter of equity, leaders and well wishers from the nine local government areas that m ...

Four days ago when i was on my way from lagos to Port Harcourt, we arrived owerri in imo state at about 5pm and i notice that soldiers are everywhere in every checkpoint in owerri. But there was a little drama that happened in one of the checkpoint. A lady in our bus drank a can of grand malt and throw it down through the window without knowing that where she throw the empty bottle was soldiers checkpoint. immediately the soldiers saw the can they ran away and hide, including people that are around. this drama happened within 5minute there was nobody and no soldiers to be found around our bus to search us since they're the one that order us to stop, so, all the passengers in our bus began to wonder what is happening, without knowing that the soldiers ran away because they thought that the empty grand malt the lady throw away was a bomb. after 10minute all the soldiers returned and offload all of us and beat the *** out of the lady and even treatning to double slap me if i make a comment.

ZIP codes are a system of postal codes used since 1963. The term ZIP, an acronym for Zone Improvement Plan is properly written in capital letters and was chosen to suggest that the mail travels more efficiently, and therefore more quickly (zipping along), when senders use the code in the postal address.

FOOLISH HOT FM! FOOLISH POLITICAL STATION!! Frankly speaking, the topic of discuss this morning by Hot Fm has further exposed their political antics, parochialism, mudslinging, hatred, cockamammy and wacky nature against Governor Okorocha,S government in IMO.

Rather than allow people to decide, you concluded already that nothing is happening in them in criticism, even when i know that Works are still ongoing in them respectively, before asking their political partners what is their take on the said topic. How many times has Hot Fm ask Chris Anyanwu why she stopped work at Eke Ahiara market which she gave out contract to her elder brother and ...

GOD SHOULD FORGIVE ROCHAS OKOROCHA,FOR DECEIVING IMOLITES! I was away in the northern part of the country completing my academic programs. I read so many interesting news on media about how my state governor is actually bringing to lime light his campaign promises which he made to imolites. I appreciated him and loudably acknowledged his performance,not minding the concept of seeing is believing. Barely a month i came back to imo state,the state where i come from,i decided to take a sight seeing to some LGA's which the governor was building general hospitals. I was opportune to visit 10 LGA's out the 27 LGA's that makes up the state,but to my greatest surprise what i saw is not what the mouth will happy to say,almost all the hospitals i visited were taken over by lizards and hoodlums who use the uncompleted buildings for smoking indian hemps. One funny thing i noticed was that almost all the hospitals were being build along the roadside which could easily attract the eyes of passer by's,especially the one ...
GOV. OKOROCHA HAS NO RESPECT FOR THE CATHOLIC CHURCH – OYC The President of Owerri Youth Council, Barr. Okere Kingdom has described the Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha as a typical infidel who does not respect the Church of God, especially the Catholic Church in Imo state. Barr. Kingdom stated this in a press release made available to newsmen over the weekend. The human rights activist stated that his reasons for reaching this conclusion is the fact that Gov. Rochas Okororcha has vehemently refused to construct the Ndiama Ulkwo/Seat of Wisdom Seminary road that he promised to construct after Arch Bishop Obinna has made several appeals to the Governor, with Governor Okorocha promising the Arch Bishop that He will construct the road, only to be deceiving the Arch Bishop. The Ulakwo born Human Rights Lawyer stated “ I met with the Arch Bishop in March 2014 at His office when I went to discuss areas of partnership with the Bishop in the matter I instituted at the Imo state High Court seeking the eradic . ...
IMO STATE PDP AND THE 2015 GOVERNORSHIP ELECTION TICKET: A CRITICAL LOOK. As the 2015 general elections beckons, aspirants to the various political positions have been making their aspirations known to the electorate, albeit in the name of "consultations". As it is today, the governorship ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) seems to be the most contentious in the entire federation of Nigeria. This, to the understanding of many, was caused by the surprising but understandable way the former government was voted out of office, leading to the emergence of the incumbent Governor, Owelle Anayo Okorocha (from Orlu zone) in 2011. His emergence without any form of doubt, altered the power sharing formula amongst the three (3) zones of the state. Presently, almost all the political egg-heads in PDP have all declared their interests for the governorship seat, while for the very first time since the advent of this present political dispensation, the Party has found itself going into a general elections as a ...
PDP ASPIRANTS SEEK EXTERNAL SUPPORT TO DEFEAT OKOROCHA- Trumpeta As aspirants seeking measures to get a ticket to contest governorship seat of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, continues to swell, a powerful contestant for the position is not leaving any stone unturned in the quest to grab the ticket. Trumpeta can exclusively reveal that a seasoned politician and a office holder in the present dispensation has extended his tentacles beyond the frontiers of Imo state to seek support for his governorship ambition. This time, a prominent politician believed to be candidate to beat in PDP is said to have devised another ploy of outsmarting his contemporaries in the race by seeking the face of money bags from Anambra State believed to enjoy filial relationship with the presidency. The suspected aspirant who it is not proper to disclose his identity this time is reported to be romancing a particular Anambra based billionaire and multi talented businessman to have an upper hand against other for 2015 PDP primary el ...

HOW FAR NA ?? Clock "I Won't Mind Being A Second Wife" –Nkiru Silvanus {Don't mind those pretenders/women saying over their dead bodies to be '2ND' in a man's house} 09-07-2014. »Nkiru Sylvanus says she can be a second wife Nollywood actress and former Special Assistant to the Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, Nkiru Sylvanus, seems to have come to a point in her life where she does not care anymore about settling for a single man as a husband. The multiple award winning Voice actress, says she does not mind being a second wife to a man as long she finds a good man who is ready to marry her. Nkiru, in her mid-30s, knows age is no longer on her side and as a Nigerian lady, she must be in real pressure to settle down, so even if a married wants her hand in marriage, she would not hesitate in accepting his proposal. The fair complexioned Nkiru who has insistently denied ever dating her former boss, Rochas Okorocha, had this to say in a recent interview: «If the situation and the person is good, I wo ...
How Rochas Okorocha wasted Imo Money and my Ordeal as Governor. OHAKIM CRY OUT. The immediate past Governor of Imo State, Dr Ikedi Ohakim, has been speaking about his ordeal during his administration in the state between 2007 and 2011, disclosing that he was beleaguered by the political opposition which spent over N1.3 Billion to fight him in other to pull him down. Ohakim let the cat out of the bag at One Day OKIGWE ZONE'S YOUTH DELEGATE CONFERENCE held at the Conference Hall of MONOBIS HOTEL IN OKIGWE LGA. He took a swipe at the state Governor, Rochas Okorocha, for wasting a whopping sum of N1.8 Trillion total allocation from Federation Account to Imo State and the 27 LGAs, 13% Oil Derivation fund and N26 Billion him Ohakim handed Over to Rochas Okorocha. All these money are now disappearing or been laundered by Governor Rochas Okorocha on white elephant projects. Ohakim said: I blame Rochas for receiving a total of N1.8trn and wasting it on projects that have no economic value to Imo people. He asked. ...
Okorocha Attracts South African Famers To Imo The Governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has attracted South African famers to come and join in the transformation of the Agricultural sector of Imo Economy, because his administration is poised to revitalize all State Government owned Industries. In an address to the foreigners in Government House before taking them to Avutu Poultry where Government has up to ten thousand birds to take off in the transformation, Owelle Okorocha said the idea is to give jobs to unemployed Imo Youths starting with the Poultry Farm of about ten thousand birds in Avutu to boost Agricultural activities. He said Government appreciates the famers who will invest in the State Agric Industry, adding that Government will provide enabling environment for the partnership to be successful.

Okorocha and Foreign Investors. The social media is awashed today with news of the visit of some South African farmers to the Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha. He took the so called foreign investors to Avutu poultry Obowo where he made yet another deceitful vow today. Okorocha is known to making vows that he hardly fulfills. He has promised to revive all the State government owned investments to make them viable and productive long before now. The governor boasted that these businesses will generate jobs to Imo people in addition to increasing the State Internally Generated Revenue. He hurriedly spent millions of Imo State funds to undertake the rehabilitation of Concorde Hotel and concessioned it to his business partners. The story of Concorde Hotel today is not only pathetic but heart breaking as a one time source of pride to Imo has been reduced into a sorrow sight. The situation at Adapalm which he renamed Imo Palm plantation is not different as the company is yet to perform the "miracles and wonde ...
Fresh building collapses at IMSU .Students, workers escape death ..As another new building threatens The entire Imo State University Community was thrown into jitters barely 3 weeks ago when a newly completed block of classrooms collapsed from the foundation to the waste of several millions of Imo tax payers naira spent by the Imo State Government to construct it. Even though the newly completed classroom block has not been allotted to any department or faculty but the students and lecturers were all of thanks to God for his grace of making escape death arguing that if the building had been allocated to any school or faculty probably the students would in a learning session when the building would have collapsed but said God has exposed the deficiencies of the contractors who handled the building project and those who awarded the contract to casual contractors. When Frontline Express reporter visited the gory site of the collapsed building, the students and lecturers who pleaded anonymity where surprised ...
Ihedioha and Imo PDP guber ticket The task of marketing Hon. Emeka Ihedioha to the Imo State electorate is very easy because it is a classic case of the maxim “A good wine needs no bush”. Ihedioha has a pow­erful and unique selling appeal (USA) or niche which makes him eligible to grab a giant portion of votes in the 2015 governorship poll . In choosing the best can­didate for the PDP governorship ticket, I worked with a marking scheme which makes it possible for every aspirant to be given a free and fair chance in the race. Some of the factors used in picking the best candidate include academic qualification, top positions held in the political arena, party loyalty, consistency, fi­nancial contribution to the party, integrity and dependability, inter­personal relationship, rule of law, due process and criminal record.

AVOIDING A NEEDLESS CRISIS IN ABOH MBAISE, NGOR OKPALA COUNCILS. By Cliff Ogbede As the 2011 general elections draws closer, there are concerns that the Aboh Mbaise and Ngor Okpala Local Government Areas of Imo State, may be spoiling for war, over the House of Representatives seat presently occupied by Emeka Ihedioha, as the councils accuse each other of undermining the other. Meanwhile, there is a need to avoid a needless crisis between the two councils. Ihedioha from Mbutu in Aboh Mbaise council, which co-exists in a federal constituency with Ngor Okpala council, is the Majority Whip of the lower legislative chamber at the federal level. But Ngor Okpala people are agitated that Ihedioha is seeking a third term, contrary to an existing agreement between the councils, to ensure harmonious co-existence of the people of both councils. A breach of peace in the two councils, especially in Ngor Okpala, will have regional and national implications, opinion leaders in the two council areas have warned. While Ngo ...

I APOLOGISE TO ALL THOSE I OFFENDED IN OFFICE - EX GOV OHAKIM. The immediate past governor of Imo State, Chief Ikedi Ohakim has asked for forgiveness from all those he offended during his tenure as governor of the state. 2015: I’ll return to complete my tenure –Ohakim Ohakim made the appeal yesterday while playing host to the people of Okigwe who called on him at his country home. According to Ohakim, those he offended included the sacked school teachers verified by the state government, the operators of illegal shanties on the major roads in the state, the banned commercial motorcycle riders among others. He said he thought he was doing the right thing but expressed surprise that during the campaign for governorship election in the state in 2011, the incumbent governor used it against him to get himself into power. On the purported flogging of a clergy man, the former governor maintained that his political detractors used it as a campaign strategy to edge him out of the Government House, saying he ne ...

Ekiti 2014: Government House Owerri, deserted •As Imo Government count losses Following the victory recorded by Dr. Peter Ayo Fayose of PDP in the last Saturday Ekiti gubernuterial election in the State and INEC declaring him the winner of the keenly contested election afterwards, there was an uneasy calm in and around Douglas House Owerri, the official Seat of power in Imo State Government.

I have called this World Press Conference today to alert Nigerians and our international friends of the grave threat posed to our democracy and indeed the very survival of our nation by an increasingly-tyrannical federal government. Less than 48 hours after I released an open letter to President Goodluck Jonathan, warning him to halt the impunity in Ekiti and not to plunge Nigeria into a political crisis, the federal government has now overreached itself and turned Ekiti into a war zone, where constitutional guaranteed rights have been suspended. The final electioneering campaign of our candidate in the Ekiti election, Gov. Kayode Fayemi, provided the perfect setting for the Jonathan-led administration ...

I want to use this medium to alert and to also draw your attention on the recent Boko Haram Invasion and Bomb scares in Imo state; please I urge each and everyone to be security conscious and watchful at all times because security is not only the work of security personnels, we all should put hands on deck to make sure we secure ourselves first before looking for the extra security helps from the security operatives.

The recent arrest of 486 suspected Boko Haram members, including eight girls, by the 144 Battalion of the Nigerian Army in Asa, near Aba, Abia State on June 14 has once again raised the question of how secure the entire country is presently? It also underlines the belief in some quarters that the insurgents are finding their ways to the southern part of the country which before now was a no go-area for them. Coming a day after bombs were discovered in a Pentecostal church in Owerri, the Imo State capital that shares border with Abia State, calls for serious concern and concerted response efforts. The timely arrest of the suspects who were moving in the convoy of 35 buses at the odd hour of that day has shown that the Nigerian military personnel in Abia State are very much alert. Many security agents on duty at such an odd hour would have been asleep fail to notice or stop the suspicious convoy. It is another milestone in the fight against insecurity in the country by the Nigerian military. It could be rec ...

2013, The Businessday Good Governance Awards which was held in Lagos State recognised the good governance character of Abia State governor with their Awards given to governor T A Orji of Abia State based on what the team of the professionals found on ground in the state and the impacts the state government have made to improve the lives of the people of Abia State. That is why I laughs at people who knows next to nothing on good governance and quality leadership when they comes up with their ignoramous assessments of public officers. Public servants can not be senteced to the imprisionments of uninformed public opinions or out dated preoccupied prejudices to rate and grade outstanding public servants like gov T A Orji. Abia State that has suffered immersenly from shortsighted views of uniformed people won double awards in the said Businessday good governance Award making her the only state that achieved that fit in the country.

Imo and increasing terror threats Boko Haram came to lime light in 2007, just as ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo was planning to hand over power. What he did not know was that his colleagues from the North had a different agenda to take power permanently, and Boko Haram was part of their bargain. When he handed over to a Northerner, the late Umaru Musa Yar’Adua as President, his Northern colleagues must have thought to themselves that it was better to allow the late President conclude his amnesty programme with the Niger Delta militants and then follow up with amnesty for the Haramites. Boko Haram was an instrument in their strategy to either wrest power from any non-Northern President or get even with the South. But our leaders from the South did not seem to appreciate the level of determination by their Northern counterparts to take over power. When, unfortunately,President Yar’Adua died, the North quickly reverted to the plan to use Boko Haram for power negotiation, and as President Goodluck Jonatha ...

UPDATE!!! HOW OKOROCHA BEAT SECURITY TO MAKE IT INTO EKITI WHERE OTHER APC GOVERNORS FAILED Live report from Ekiti said ORO arrived Government House Ekiti early enough before the security contingency to track the visiting APC Governors. ORO the account said, was smart enough to travel to Akure airport without his his usual private Jet. Otherwise he wouldn't have entered Ekiti in the first place. Contrary to earlier news the Imo State Governor arrived via a Chartered flight, against his private jet that was being tracked. When he was done and was ready to go, he met a situation in Akure Airport where his Chartered Jet was grounded yesterday. As a result the Imo Governor came back to Owerri yesterday by road with only two vehicles provided to him by Ekiti State Governor. The Governor reached Owerri Government House at about 0943pm We thank God for granting our Governor journey mercy back to Imo State.

JUNE 16, 2014 BY FIDELIS SORIWEI AND CHUKWUDI AKASIKE 174 Comments Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha THERE was widespread panic in Owerri, capital of Imo State, on Sunday as security operatives discovered bombs planted in the premises of a branch of Bishop David Oyedepo’s Living Faith World Bible Church, a.k.a. Winners Chapel. The discovery forced the church to shift its Sunday worship from its location along Port Harcourt Road to Heroes’ Square, near Concord Hotel. Governor Rochas Okorocha said it would have been disastrous if the bombs had not been deactivated before they went off. “The bombs had the capacity to go within 500 meters range and would have been a disaster if they had exploded as the church where it was planted is located at a densely populated area of the state,” the governor said, according to a statement by his Special Senior Assistant in charge of the media, Jane Amucha. Two Improvised Explosive Devices were said to have been planted at the entrance of the church overnight and ...

Abia State is Better governed than Imo!!! Today, I will be writing about Abia State and how T A Orji has been the "worst"? Governor in Nigeria and how Abia State has been better governed under gov T A Orji than Imo State under gov Rochas Okorocha with empirical facts and evidences. I shall be bursting up some outdated myths about Abia State and lies today against that man, T A Orji and shame the blanket condemners who has so been blindfolded by senile prejudices. It is not what you thinks it is, Abia State in my honest and frank assessment is better governorned than the present Imo State. Imo State is presently governmed by a mediocre who knows nothing about rule of law!

NDLEA arrests suspect with N75m worth of cocaine June 19, 2014 by Mudiaga Affe, Calabar 0 Comments The Cross River State Command of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency has arrested a suspect, Kelechi Amaka, with 6.3kg of cocaine valued at N75m. Amaka, an Imo State indegene based in Cameroon, was arrested at the Nigerian Inland Waterways Authority Jetty in Calabar on her way from Cameroon. Parading the suspect at the office of the NDLEA in Calabar, the state Commander of the agency, Mr. Kayode Adeniyi, said the drugs were concealed in six factory sealed ladies hand bags and kept in a leather box. The NDLEA boss added that, attempts to smuggle the drug into Nigeria failed as the suspect was intercepted by NDLEA officers on operation at the NIWA Jetty.

With regards to the accusations of ethnic profiling levelled against some southern states of Nigeria in their fight against the extension of terrorism down south, methinks it's better to err on the side of caution. What with the influx of almajiris in the southern regions of Nigeria coupled with the security threats pervading the nation. I know no body wants to say it as it is, but when a particular set of people have been responsible for the deaths of more than 30,000 Nigerians in the most horrible way imaginable, all in the name of wanting power back and Islamizing the country, it is not out of place to take extra precautionary measures to safeguard your back yard. I don't even know why people are reading meanings into this, it's what America and other nations of the world do all the times. Extra measures are taken to ensure that any body who hails from a predominantly terrorists sympathetic regions are properly vetted before he is allowed into the society. And in the case of the north and Boko Haram, y ...

The Deputy Speaker regretted the delay in completion of the project which he attributed to funding and assured that the federal government is committed to the completion of the road for which N3.5billion was provided in this year’s 2014 appropration. ‘This is one of the major projects that will link Imo State with other coastal states of the Niger Delta and indeed trigger economic development. He therefore urged the contractors to immediately repair the collapsed portions of the road to cushion the effects of road users while the construction progresses. Continuing, he said, ‘the progress of work was delayed for awhile due to funding c ...
Kidnappers kill victim after collecting N1.7m ransom in Umuahia Residents of Umuahia, Abia State, were on Monday thrown into confusion when the lifeless body of a 72-year-old business man, abducted by yet-to-be identified gunmen, was found on the road at Olokoro, a suburb of the town. The victim, Elder Alex Okonkwo, a native of Akata in Oru East of Imo State, was the owner of a popular supermarket in Umuahia from where he was abducted on Sunday June 8, 2014. Speaking with our correspondent on Wednesday at their residence, one of the sons of the deceased, Ndubueze, said his father was abducted by unknown gunmen numbering about four around 8am on the fateful day. According to him, the kidnappers shot sporadically into the air before cramming his diabetic father into the boot of their (abductors’) waiting Toyota Camry and zooming off. He said that the abductors later established contact with the family and demanded a huge sum of money as ransom, but after many negotiations, the family agreed to pay N1.7m. ...
Police probe planned bombing of Imo church The police on Monday said it had started investigation into Sunday’s planned bombing of a Church in Owerri, Imo State. The Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Frank Mba, made the disclosure at a joint news conference organised by the National Information Centre, Abuja. Mba, however, advised members of the public not to hurriedly link the incident to terrorism. “The media and the citizens should not be in a hurry to link the Owerri incident to establish terror cell until the full identity of those behind it are known to security forces. “Until the motives are established, I think it will be pre-emptive for us to give it the toga of terrorism. “It could be anything, for us in the security world, we live all options open, we are ready to test all hypothesis,” Mba said. The Deputy Director, Public Relations, Department of State Services, Marilyn Ogar, stressed the need for Nigerians to be vigilant. Ogar said no piece of information should be taken granted, ...

In the process, it was discovered that about six suicide bombers have taken over the church perpetrating their nefarious activities. The source said that the police immediately cordoned off the church premises in search of the suspects leading to the arrest of the ...

HIV-Positive Businessman Commits Suicide A Nnewi-based businessman, Ihejirika, committed suicide when his HIV test result he undertook at Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital (NAUTH) Nnewi, came positive. When late Ihejirika found out on Tuesday, June 10, that he was a HIV-positive, he cried and subsequently cut off his throat with a sharp kitchen knife, slumped and died immediately. It was gathered that Ihejirika's relatives came to visit him at hospital, but when they didn't find him on his hospital bed they raised the alarm. The body of Ihejirika was discovered at the back of the central pharmacy of the hospital, lying dead in a pool of his blood, with a sharp kitchen knife in his right hand. The deceased was the only son of his parents residing at Otolo Nnewi in Anambra State from where he was admitted to the hospital. He was said to be doing well in his motorcycle spare parts business and was from Abo Mbaise, in Imo State. Ihejirika's wife and his neighbors in Otolo Nnewi refused to make any . ...

Group Urges Northern Leaders Boko Haram Drop Their Weapons By Segun James The South East Amalgamation for Jonathan/Sambo 2015 Presidency has called on the Northern leaders/Muslims to meet their people and appeal to them to drop their weapons and embrace peace for the unity of the country. This was just as the Niger Delta leaders did with the militants that brought to the end of the militancy in the region. The National Coordinator of the group, Chief Elvis Agukwe in an interview with THISDAY in Owerri after the meeting of the group said that it was by so doing that the issue of insurgents would be tackled, adding that the Northern leaders knew what to do to bring to a stop the insurgent attack on Nigerians by the Boko Haram group. Agukwe, who was a former Commissioner for Information and Strategy in Imo State, hoped that if the Northern leaders could follow the footsteps of their Niger Delta counterparts that moved into the creeks when the militants held sway in the nation and brought them out and made th ...
‘A hungry man cannot eat roundabout’ Capt Ihenacho declares Says Imo has had enough ‘accidental’ governors The former nation’s interior Minister Capt. Emmanuel Ihenacho has remarked that the high level of unemployment and poverty in Imo State will not reduce until the state gets selfless and visionary leaders. The ex-minister made this remark at the on-going inauguration of Capt Ihenacho’s Campaign Organisation for Orlu/Oru East/Orsu Federal Constituency recently held at St Mary’s Primary School play ground Orlu Imo State. The international mariner said that lack of initiative to go into production of goods and services and over dependence on foreign products and federal allocation is the cause of mass unemployment in Imo State and the nation at large.

If Ogun State can successfully maintain 2 universities, 7 polytechnics and one College of Education. I see no reason why Lagos State cannot maintain only one university. We have said it times without number that the Govt of Fashola is for the elites only or how do we express a situation where the govt spent billions of Naira construction roads and bridges then increase tuition fee of the only State university from to is free in Imo State University and the question is .is Imo State richer than Lagos State? What a "better rewarding future" for the youths.
ARREST JUDE EJIOGU NOW FOR IMO LGA PENSION SCAM The Youths Against Human Rights Violation And Corrupt Practices (YAHVCP) hereby call on the Governor of Imo State ,His Excellency Owelle Rochas Okorocha to immediately sack and order for arrest and prosecution of Sir Jude Ejiogu, the Governor’s Chief of Staff and Commissioner for Special Duties over alleged stealing of 1 billion naira Imo LGA pension funds when he (Ejiogu) was the Chairman of Imo Local Government Service Commission. For YAHVCP, it is sad for the Governor of Imo State to still have men like Ejiogu in his cabinet, men that condemned Imolites to penury after retirement. Men who stole the sweat, the entitlements of our old men and old women who are looking up just to that little pension appreciation from their state.The condition of LGA pensioners in Imo State aptly demonstrates the heartlessness of some public office holders - a system which benefits a few on the bones of the mass majority must be condemned. It is sad that the life of t ...
Comr Obinna Akuwudike with Nnamdi Obiaraeri and 15 others I remember sometime ago during the APC registration in Imo State when Owelle Rochas Okorocha the executive Governor of Imo State came on the state-owned radio to beg and cry for the people of Imo State to register with APC (Aboki Problematic Congress). I remember clearly how he made a promise, just in case he has forgotten like he forgets numerous other promises he had made in that past, that APC must produce either a presidential candidate of Igbo extraction or a Vice President from Igboland. That was when he was crying about how APC was for the good of Ndi Igbo. Probably he was hoping that the APC leadership will consider him for either of those positions. His cries failed to gander the support he hoped for and did not get as much people to register because Ndi Imo are wiser. So far, from all indications it seems that the Igbo race as well as the Christian religion are being sidelined in the APC sharing formula just as they were sidelined in the ...

Speaking further at the meeting, Governor Okorocha revealed that the crime wave in the State since the inception of his administration had reduced drastically.

Lamentations of the aged Africans in Diaspora by Mobolaji Aluko (Prof,)May 30, 2014 My people. In one of my rare visits to a joint here in New York (NY), Uche Restaurant, I encountered, once again, some Nigerians who I suspect have thrown away their travel documents and secured a free place for their internment whenever it becomes their turn to quit the earth. Some are 70 years old or more and most smell like they have not passed over Atlantic Ocean by air since they left town ( Nigeria) . One of them sneezed and got wet from something that smelled like human urine coming from himself. The other talked like he created Ebonics language . Such scenes and people make the new but donkey year olds here wonder if we shall one day see ourselves in such an abnormal sociology for an African abroad. Sad to say that most of the Nigerian men I have seen, and of this grade being described are from Orlu and Ngwa areas of Igbo land. I had some talk with a couple of them over a three-month period on major issues of ag .. ...

My Honor: My Disappointments By Ambrose Nwaogwugwu. I write this epistle today, with a very heavy heart, for some time now, I have watched events in my state, Imo with appalls and dismay. I have watched particularly those on social media platforms who misinform and misleads the unsuspecting publics and Imolites with reckless abandonment; these are supposedly Imolites who are deemed the conscience of our society. I have observed specifically the chaos in my Imo State where few renegades, explicitly boasting it's connections to high places of authority with determination to turn my motherland into a bankrupt and lawless estate of feudal lords with their misinformation on the state of our homeland. I am crassly appalled by the brazenness of this clique. I accepted this award without prior knowledge that these people where in the honor's list and hence my ignorant acknowledgement of the said award. The misdemeanour of these people are becoming too alarming and dangerous for silence and hence my latter plans o ...
The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) Friday in Owerri, the Imo State capital demanded six new republics in the country, including Biafra Republic. Thousands of MASSOB members who thronged the Ojukwu Memorial Centre in New Owerri in the maiden edition of the commemoration of Biafran Day on May 30 when the late Igbo Leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu declared the Republic of Biafra in I967 said it was time for the Igbo to have their own republic. MASSOB leader, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike clad in the navy blue Biafran uniform with the other members of his group urged the Federal Government to do the will of God and let their people go. Uwazuruike who addressed the large followers of the group with two representatives of MASSOB in the United Kingdom, Mrs Francese Joseph and Tina Joseph said May 30 was a turning point in the life of every Igbo man. “It is the watershed in the history of the geographical expression called Nigeria. It is the aftermath of the mistake of ...

Way to Solve Nigeria’s Problems is to Vote out PDP, Says Amaechi Rivers State Governor, Mr. Chibuike Amaechi, has again said the only way to solve the numerous problems facing the country is to vote out the ruling Peoples Democratic Party PDP in next year’s election. Amaechi spoke at the second International Conference on Democracy and Good Governance with the theme ‘Nigeria’s Democracy: Issues and Challenges’ which held at the new Dr. Obi Wali Convention Centre in Port Harcourt, Wednesday. According to him, something was wrong with the country and posed to the participants at the conference the question: “Do you like Nigeria the way it is now? (the audience answered ‘No’.) “Do you like the way Nigeria is being governed now? (‘No’, the audience again chorused.) Simple, you have one answer. Vote out those who have kept us inside this kind of situation, vote them out whether they are from Niger Delta or from Southern Delta or from whatever Delta. We need to vote them out now and change ...

In my presentation I told my audience that the problems of Ngor Okpala is fundamentally a problem of leadership. I told them to resist and reject in totality the erroneous appellation of leaders of tomorrow. I told them their is no tomorrow without today and yesterday. To appreciate where we are going as a people, we must identify where we are coming from. We must review the past to be able to address the present. I told them we had great leaders of national prominence yesterday, we had men and women intimidating clout outside the enclaves of Ngor Okpala, I told them Ngor Okpala was the headqters of old owerri local govt.

To be Honest, I think all this so called IMO state big boys are really going nuts. What is all this building of hotels in every empty land in owerri? From the way things are going, soon it will be one person to one hotel in owerri. What future are we building for our unborn kids? Are they all going to be hotel managers and attendant? How can one man have 3 hotels in the same state capital? Can't this men for God's sake build a company even is only toothpick it produces. Am beginning to suspect these hotel owners. Even a house for accommodation they don't build, but you will count 5 hotels in one street. Imagine my friend's landlord asking them to vacate his house that he wants to convert it to hotel. Wahala dey for this owerri I swear.
Imo people will reject PDP again- Hon Uche Onyeagocha. Hon Uche Onyeagucha’s declaration of interest for senate took an exciting dimension at Nkwo Ezeogba Hall, Emekuku in Owerri North LGA last week where the two contestants Hon (Barr) Uche Onyeaguocha and Chief Nick Oparandudu sat together on same high table. It was said that Chief Nick Oparandudu who is a bonafide son of Emekuku came on the invitation of Hon. Uche Onyeagucha as a demonstration of APC culture of family affair and issue-based campaign that is free from rancor. Onyeagucha said that party primaries should not tear him and his brothers apart so that whoever emerges will have support of others with a strong and united party with which to confront and defeat PDP. He expressed doubt over PDP participating in 2015 elections in Imo State since they might not find moral strength to contest in consideration of infrastructural development recorded all over Imo State within 3 years of Rochas Okorocha government that surpasses PDP 12 years in office ...

THIS IS A MUST READ TO ALL IMOLITES. Know the history of your State. Imo State; the Eastern Heartland was created out of the old East Central State of Nigeria as an Independent State on the 3rd February, 1976, under the leadership of late military ruler General Murtala Mohammed. The first Governor of Imo State was Rear Admiral (retired) Ndubuisi Godwin Kanu, from 1976 - 1977. He was succeeded by Captain Adekule Shamusideen Lawal, who ruled the state from 1977 - 1978. Mr. Sunday Ajibade Adenihum, took over Navy Captain Lawal and his tenure lasted from 1978 - 1979. In the period from 1976-1979, nobody in Imo State noticed presence of these past Governors in Imo State nor felt thier impact due to their non performance while in office. The young and fledgling state was in danger of going into oblivion. However, God had other plans for Imo state and he brought Late Mazi Dee Samuel Onunaka Mbakwe of blessed memory to power at the termination of military rule on 1st October, 1979 and before his second term, g .. ...

Sadly, el-Rufai has been so obsessed with “Operation Remove Jonathan” that he does not seem to notice that the North is burning or that there is a huge task to be done in the North. Why are the likes of el-Rufai and Ribadu critical in this task? Both men are very intelligent, well read, young, successful in their careers and national assignments, progressive in orientation, change-hungry, etc. The Northern youth will listen to them. The Sardauna of Sokoto, Sir Ahmadu Bello, was known to have mobilised the North to go to school and join the military, civil service and politics. You know of Barewa College, Zaria because most Northerners, including heads of state and presidents, attended it. Today, another group is mobilising Northern youths to reject education. Even before Boko Haram came to the limelight, whenever the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board released the statistics of candidates for its exams, you would see figures like 120,000 candidates from Imo State and 3,000 from Jigawa State.

He then said that "even ORDINALY IMO STATE" is doing better than PDP controlled states. He later corrected himself but as you know now, out of the HEART, the MOUTH speaks.
Just listened to Rotimi Amaechi refer to Imo state as 'common Imo' in a bid to drive home his point. Me think he should concentrate on consolidating governance and forget about stage performance and oratory rehearsals!
THE “TRUMPETA” OF “WAR” AND THE PRACTICE OF JOURNALISM IN IMO Journalism is a cherished profession around the world. It affords the practitioners the rare privilege of shaping the society through the power of the pen and this is the reason why the mass media is regarded as the third estate of the realm. Journalists are expected to be watch dogs of the society, keeping leaders on their toes, promoting accountability and good governance. The concept of Development Journalism has raised the bar of expectation on the practitioners. The practice of journalism, often bring it practitioners to limelight making the watch dog to be watched and the newshound, newsmaker. Many have been thrust into public offices through election and appointment and examples abound: Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, Chief Awolowo, Chief Segun Osoba, Segun Adeniyi etc. Here in Imo, there exists a thriving market accommodating a horde of local tabloids that are vibrant and growing daily. Some have existed for about ten years without a break ( ...

Because initially I thought it was only in Imo state until my girl friend from Enugu State told me they have it as well. Am shocked as to why should a particular group of people be suffering for something they no nothing about.

Please enjoy reading how they destroyed APGA and made it local party. Okorocha behind crisis in APGA – Umeh Engr. Campbell Umeh is the leader of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Lagos State and Senior Special Assistant to the National Chairman of the party, Chief Victor Umeh. In this Interview with Campbell Umeh Campbell Umeh SENIOR CORRESPONDENT, AUGUSTINE ADAH, he spoke on the crisis in the party and the plan of APGA in 2015. Excerpts… How do you intend to resolve the lingering crisis in APGA? APGA has no much problem except the ones caused by some people outside the party who want to bring down APGA in Igbo land, but I am telling you that they are not going to have their way. It is those who are against the Igbo race that are causing confusion in the party. Let me give you a case in point: APGA has a case with the former national chairman of the party, Chief Chekwas Okorie, far back in 2004 and the case went to Abuja Federal High Court who endorsed his expulsion and Maxi Okwu from the part ...

Gunmen kill businessman in Lagos:- BY EVELYN USMAN & ESTHER ONYEGBULALAGOS — A businessman identified as Chief Bright Igwegbu, was yesterday shot dead by unknown gunmen at Mile Two area of Lagos. It could, however, not be ascertained whether the gunmen were robbers or assassins, as the Police said they had commenced investigation into the killing. The late Igwegbu popularly known as Akuzonu One of Isu-Njaba or Bruzel, who hailed from Imo State, was reportedly driving in his ML 450 Sports Utility Vehicle, SUV, when his assailants were said to have emerged from nowhere and shot him in the neck and head. Vanguard gathered that the graduate of Economics from Ogun State University, whose family is based in Houston, Texas, was billed to visit his family next week. It was also learnt that before the tragic incident, Igwegbu, on two occasions, had close shave with death. The first incident, according to family sources, occurred six weeks ago after some gunmen suspected to be robbers attempted to attack him, but ...
Amaechi is a shrimp on a frying pan waiting for pepper and garlic to be ready for eating. The north's APC is blinded by religion, therefore, their political calculations have rendered Amaechi and Okorocha politically impotent. The duo are merely struggling for a foothold now. What happened in Anambra will happen in Rivers and Imo states, when the time comes. Thus, the earlier Amaechi takes the opportunity offered him by GEJ's men, the better. He'd not only have the opportunity of stopping Nyesom Nwike but also become a front-liner in GEJ's post 2015 arrangement. Those who have ears should listen!
The fall of Biafra Biafra leaders,provincial administrators held a final secret meeting at Ogwa(currently in Mbaitoli LGA,Imo state) on January 9,1970.A unanimous agreement was reached mandating Ojukwu to end the war and for Biafra forces to surrender to Col Obasanjo of 3MMCD and not Col Illiya Bissalla of 1st Div or Gibson Jalo of 2nd Div.Ojukwu said he would rather go into exile than surrender. Early morning 3am on January 11,Gen Ojukwu,Maj Gen Alex Madiebo,Dr Michael Okpara and Secretary NU Akpan flew out from Uli airstrip "in search of peace". The next day Gen Philip Effiong made a broadcast accepting the 12 state structure and urged Biafran forces to surrender.

The wicked whirlwind that started four years earlier on Jan 15,1966 looked like it was over. The people of Biafra joine . ...
I remember my first time outside Nigeria... in a very remote part of the country I was... there was this two black guys talking and acting so confidently with their expensive ugly jeans...I got close to them just to have an idea of the language they were speaking... lo and behold. they were my brothers.not just my igbo brothers, but my Imo state brothers. I was shocked to see Igbos there... but funny enough, not only were there Igbos living in that remote part of the Country. they actually had a very active Igbo Group!!! Now, what more testifies to the organizational Spirit, Spirit of togetherness (Ofu Obi), self-help and adventurous Spirit of a People than this??? My point is this. Anywhere you go and you dont find an Igbo man... run! Even on the moon there are Igbos.winks...

Politics aside,governor Rochas Anayochukwu Ethelbert Okorocha has creditably performed and delievered the required and needed dividends of democracy and good governance in imo state. Although he joined a political party that most of us see as an hausa party,which to me doesn't count in electing a good person,a political Go getter and some body that will perform, work and deliever,as a political party is just a platform,a vehicle that an individual or a politician use to get to his political destinations and destiny,and can dump it before,during and after an election. Lets keep party aside,forget about party this or that and tell ourselves the truth. He has been in office for three years and has done more than what Achike Udenwa,Ikedi Ohakim and pdp put together couldn't and didn't do in twelve (12) years Imolites have emphatically stated that gov okorocha three years in office can never be equated and compared to the twelve years of pdp regime in imo state.

Desperate governor I told someone some weeks ago that governor rochas will start making regular mouth-watering offers and promises to every section of IMO state. It has started. A man who is unable to pay pensions and gratuities and salaries now talks about bursary payment to IMO citizens studying outside the state. A man who owes ITC, Adapalm, General hospital, concord hotel staff several months in salaries claims he wants to pay bursaries. Let's not forget, he promised youth corp members posted to IMO state 10, 000 monthly. He paid none! Very soon he will offer to feed everyone in IMO state. But no matter what, he is leaving that seat February next year

If not for FMC , how will IMOLITES accessed Medicare in the last 3yrs. 2) our artisans are idling away while our governor went ahead to import school uniforms, sandals ,books and bags. 3) why has the governor not conducted local government election? 4) why is it that contracts are not bade for again in Imo state and contracts are done without specifications. 5) why has Imo turned back into a dunjon and refuse dump? 6) why was the 10,000 workers sacked for lack of vacancy and industries, have they created vacancies or have they built industries to have employed 25,000? 7) what happened to law faculty and some others faculties of Imo State University? 8) why is it the school at wetheral that has been completed?

WARNING! OUR PDP MEMBERS AND LEADERS IN IMO-STATE before it is too late.IMO GUBER 2015.BEFORE WE LOSE IT AGAIN.PLS READ.. .One thing that has stuck with us and causing much of the problems in the polity is the penchant for leaders to hear only those beautiful tales their sycophantic Aides feed them with. The moment you tell your Boss the truth, which usually is bitter you have kissed your job good bye. So what do you do? Keep feeding the ego of your Boss, who lives in a fools paradise. The truth here is that the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Imo state chapter, has no arrow head to be called the “Leader” that can steer all others into one line. Before, the “Leader” of the party was the Governor, and since 2011 the PDP lost Douglas House, all the members have found “leadership” in whomever they believe in or chose among the PDP heavy weights in Imo state to follow. Therefore, in this situation the party is now divided into various loyalty cells, headed by the bigwigs, all championing his or he . ...

WHY I WANT TO BE GOVERNOR: AGBASO Prominent businessman and politician, Chief Martin Agbaso has declared his interest in Imo governorship. He also discussed his mission and vision with Olawale Olaleye. Excerpts: It’s being speculated that you will run for the Imo governorship in 2015; is it true or are you supporting someone again? Well, in very clear terms, I will contest for the Governor of Imo State in 2015 general election. As you all know, in 2007, I set out to massively rebuild the infrastructure in my state. As I told you, at the time, we had over 900km of state-owned roads to pave and an excess of 1400km of local government roads to stabilise. At that time, approximately 80 per cent of the public water scheme was dysfunctional. We had over 1200 primary schools that needed to be refurbished and made fit for learning. Seventy per cent of our secondary schools were a shadow of what they were 30 to 40 years ago. The industrial centers, set out in the different parts of Imo, had become over grown by ...
BETWEEN GOV ROCHAS OKOROCHA and STATISTICS: When a Chief Executive Deceive His People. Rochas proved to the whole world yesterday that a lier has no memory. He stated that he has only received from the federal government since 3yrs, and that is why he has failed Imolites. According to Okorocha, Imolites should not compare him with Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa-Ibom State because he has received billion in the same space of 3yrs. He should be compared with the likes of Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu State and Governor Theodore Orji of Abia State...,(for those who have been in Enugu State lately, in what aspect can we Compare Sullivan and Rochas???) He (Rochas) granted an interview in the Sun Newspapers last 2 Months that he gets per month as Federal Allocation to the State. Yesterday he said he has gotten a total of in 3 years! Please multiply into 36 Months that makes up 3yrs which will sum up to add it with the Monthly allocation of the 27 Local Government Areas of Imo State for same 3yrs, An LGA . ...
I was reading over the "10 Richest Nigerian comedians and their sources of wealth" on Vanguard news and it was going interestingly until I got to Okey Bakassi's turn. Hear out the writer: He (Okey Bakassi) anchors upscale events steadily and must have made huge money from politics too as Senior Special Assistant on entertainment in Imo State. He has a mansion in Imo State and Canada. So this wrong mentality of seeing it as normal for a politician or govt official automatically becoming rich is after all, not only a disease of illiterate/poor Nigerians but also by educated/respected Nigerians. Which way forward a beg?! Too sad!
My people My people...Happy Democracy Day!..Long live Imo State...Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Owerri And Refuse: Owerri, the capital of Imo State and indeed Imo State few years ago was acclaimed as the cleanest state out of the thirty six states in the country and Abuja. Few years later, the position of the state snow dived to the dirtiest state in the country. Comparing the rate of this digression between the regime of Chief Ikedi Ohakim and Governor Rochas Okorocha, one will be amazed because of the time lag. Even as we speak today, filt has taken over the ever busy Tetlow road between numbers 112 to 120 to the extent that vehicles no longer pass through that particular route. Go to the Emmanuel College party popularly known as New Market Motor Party, Ekeonunwa Market, Relief Market, Works Layout area around the popular Madonna Nursery, Primary and Secondary school. Are you talking about Amakohia and Akwakuma axis or the Oparanozie areas? The story is entirely the same all over and it is not cheering by every standard.

Ekiti stands still for Fayemi as APC holds grand rally Former Head of State, Gen Muhammadu Buhari and the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, yesterday, condemned the ris­ ing wave of killing by Boko Haram insurgents. The party leaders, who were in Ado-Ekiti to present the party’s flag to Governor Kayode Fayemi, as its flag bearer for the June 21 gov­ ernorship election, decried the shedding of the blood of innocent Nigerians by the insurgents. Gen Buhari said that the APC had competent hands to turn around the fortunes of the country, particularly at this critical period, when the nation was at crossroads. “APC has competent hands to steer the ship of the nation . It is a party I believe and have conviction that can bring Nigeria out of its present situation,” Buhari said. Tinubu, who spoke on the same issue, said: “APC is the cure to Nigeria’s headache in the areas of unemployment, killings, ineptitude and in Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi is the Do ...

A must read The struggle to succeed failure in Abia State MAY 21, 2014 BY UCHE IGWE Uche Igwe The journey to Aba from Port Harcourt was a regrettably long one. It was meant to be less than an hour but it had lasted for three hours and we were yet to enter the city. The entry from the Enugu-Port Harcourt-Expressway that cut through Aba has become completely impassable. The commercial-minded citizens had designed all sorts of makeshift exits through which some of the buses carrying commuters diverted to make their journeys faster. Some young men temporarily blocked the exits and demanded money in return for allowing any of the buses access. I saw mountainous heaps of used metals probably from broken down engines and cars. It was getting dark but I managed to figure out that we were in Ala Ojii, a hustling hub that harbours motor mechanics and spare parts dealers a few kilometres to the main city. A sudden heavy odour invaded our nostrils possibly from the garbage dump and the centre of the road. That is the ...
Friends, I was shocked this afternoon to know that the governor of IMO state awarded a 9billion naira contract for the sawing of school uniforms to a Chinese coy.What a priority. APC as a party will be worst if given the chance to replicate this type of contract in all the country.My beloved friends abroad will never comment on this since it is not Jonathan.A set will cost an average of 100k per pupil.Same is happening in Osun state where all pupils and students are mandated to put on same uniform across bound.While the state university in Lagos is beyond the reach of the lower close.No wonder the fees situation in LASU is described as Book Haram school fee by no less a person than Falana.Every sane mind in naija knows the party that associates with Boko Haram just to desperately steal power.God will disappoint them.The gov of Kano state accused the gov of Akwa Ibom of being a vulture and the performing gov of Akwa Ibom replied him and his party of sponsoring terrorism in their states,the next day APC dir ...
Confab Has No Business With Tenure Elongation And Postponement of the 2015 General Elections - Justice Kutigi Reaffirms. At the start of the afternoon session of the National Conference, the chairman, Justice Idris Kutigi reaffirms the stand of the conference on the proposal for tenure elongation and shifting of the 2015 general elections as proposed by a delegate from Akwa Ibom State, Chief Okon Osung, at a press conference last week. The chairman restates that there is no truth in the insinuation from some section of the public that the issue have been discussed with the presiding officers. He therefore reaffirms the following as contained in a press statement released by the secretariat yesterday: 1. The views expressed by Chief Okon Osung regarding tenure extension for any elected official, based on any reasons cited by him, are entirely personal to him and must not be viewed or regarded to, in any way, have any anything whatsoever to do with the National Conference or any of its Committees. 2.
