Prof. Achebe's body finally kisses his country's soil today. Like I had posted it on my wall few months back when nigeria losts one of his "overtime literary giant", Prof. Chinua Achebe, he authored the famous literature 'things fall apart', within the same vein, notable icons from within and out of the country would not cease to eulogise his achievements after he graduated from our renowned university of ibadan in the year 1952. No doubt, papa had imparted millions of lives both home and abroad. No wonder Prof. Boniface Egboka and Prof. Isaac Adewole, the Vice Chancellors of Nnamdi Azikiwe University and University of Ibadan respectively referred to him as the "foremost father of african literature". As for me Babs Joshua, really, his grammatical concordance, brilliance and elusiveness dazzles that literary interest in me. The former Managing Director of the World Bank from Nigeria, Mrs. Oby Ezekwesili, the VC of Anambra State University, Prof Peter Okafor, the Arch-bishop of Canterbury, most Rev Justin ...

Tribute to Chinua Achebe: I bid farewell to the African giant, the man who represented Africa very well, literary icon, Prof Chinua Achebe. He is no more but he lives on. The Igbo nation, Nigeria and Africa are very proud of him. Nna anyi ukwu, Achebe as you go home today, please tell our big brother Ojukwu that the same thing that compelled him to declare war is raising its ugly head again. Tell Umaru Musa Yar'Adua that terrorist group, Boko Haram and kidnappers are demanding for amnesty with impunity. Inform Abiola that there may be a 2nd June 12 in 2015. Let Nnamdi Azikiwe know that the peace he initiated in Nigeria is being threatened by northern politicians. I know that you will not see Sani Abacha because of his location, you would have told him that the looting of oil funds he started in Nigeria is our major problem today. Again, do not fail to tell Awolowo that indeed "There was a country". Tell our hero, Ojukwu that "Things have fallen apart", as a result the center cannot hold and therefore, Ni ...
Dear Achebe, Please, If you see Ojukwu, tell him that his brothers and sisters are experiencing another Pogrom in Kano. Tell Awolowo that Nigeria is preparing for another war. Tell Zik that those things that made him cross the ocean 50 times seeking for peace is looming again. Tell Yar'Adua that the amnesty he granted is causing wahala. Tell Tafewa Balewa that his scions are carrying weapons against Nigeria. Obviously you may not see Abacha but if you see any one that will see him, tell him that Almustapha is still in kirikiri prison and of course Alameyesieha has been released. Tell MKO Abiola that another June 12 is looming and tell him that Nigeria's officials have extended to be convicted criminals who are looting the nation dry. Don't be disappointed on Nigeria dear Achebe just that THINGS HAVE FALLEN APART, NIGERIA IS NO LONGER AT EASE AND THE ARROW OF GOD IS NOW POINTING SERIOUSLY AT NIGERIA, BECAUSE OF THE TROUBLE WITH NIGERIA, EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE HAD A MAN OF THE PEOPLE LIKE YOU; INDEED THERE WAS ...

MARK, ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY, OTHERS EULOGISE ACHEBE … AS BURIAL HOLDS TODAY: Thousands of people gathered at the Alex Ekwueme Square, Awka, on Wednesday to celebrate the literary icon, Prof. Chinua Achebe, whose final burial will take place at his village, Ikenga Ogidi, on Thursday. After extolling the virtues and achievements of the author of the famous Things Fall Apart, speakers at the Celebration of Life, a special programme organised by the Anambra State Government, called for his immortalisation. The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev. Justin Welby, urged young people to emulate Achebe. “Pick up the torch which he carried. Study your people with wisdom, insight and depth and come out with the resolution of their problems,” said Rev. Andrew Willer, who represented the head of the Anglican Church worldwide. The President of the Senate, Senator David Mark, whose message was read by the Senate Majority Leader, Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba, said Achebe lived an exemplary life, adding that his d ...

To those who claim to be neutral my message: “Tell a man whose house is on fire to give a moderate alarm; tell a man moderately to rescue his wife from the arms of a ravisher; tell a mother to extricate gradually her babe from the fire into which it has fallen; but do not ask me to use moderation in a cause like the present” I am "independent in all things but neutral in none that affect the destiny of PAC". I am no fence sitter!!!
Tributes galore as Anambra receives Achebe From GEOFFREY ANYANWU, Awka and DOM EKPUNOBI, Onitsha Awka, the Anambra State capital, yesterday stood still as the remains of the late literary icon, Prof. Chinua Achebe arrived in his state to a resounding reception by the government and people of the state. Government business was also virtually grounded as civil servants obeyed the directive of the government to be present and honour the late icon. They were seen at the venue signing attendance register to confirm their presence and avert any possible reprimand. The body which was carried in a brown casket accompanied by his widow, Prof. Christy Achebe and four children arrived the Amansea border by 12:35pm where it was received by the state Governor, Peter Obi and the senator representing his Senatorial zone, Anambra Central, Dr. Chris Ngige, with other dignitaries and community leaders. As early as 7am, people from all walks of life had started trooping into the Amansea boundary reception venue and Alex Ekw ...

IN the couple of months following his death up to his burial today, the world has risen in unison to celebrate Chinua Achebe as a man universally acclaimed to be the father of modern African literature and as the man who used literature to bring Africa to the world. Indeed there is nothing to be said about Achebe’s accomplishments in and contribution to African literature and post-colonial political consciousness that has not been said. The occasion of the 50th anniversary of the publication of Things Fall Apart in 2008 provided opportunity for Achebe’s place in African literary history to be firmly established. All across the world, the novel which became a pace-setter was celebrated that year. By whatever standard, Achebe achieved immortality. If we use as yardstick the Freudian concept of immortality as being known by many anonymous people, then Achebe has joined the pantheon of world literary giants (like Shakespeare, Ernest Hemingway, Mark Twain, Percy Shelley, Charles Dickens, Marie Corelli, Th ...

Chinua Achebe's week here in UNN, especially in the Faculty of Arts. We have everything from procession, drama, not to talk of lecture free periods and tones and tones of poems written in remembrance of the late literary sage. The man is a sort of icon that comes second to no other than Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe as far as UNN is concerned. In my own little way I am putting together my own poem, to lend a voice to the celebration of the greatest storyteller produced by Africa.

Nigeria is begging for good leaders to take care of her and not waste her riches.
Obiageli ‘Oby’ Ezekwesili, CFR:Me regret what I said about Nigeria’s oil wealth? No way! (Continued from last week) In normal times, she ought to have still continued to savour the excitement and deluge of eulogies that have trailed her grand entry, penultimate Sunday, into the quinquagenarian club. Rather, Mrs. Obiageli Ezekwesili, former Minister of Solid Minerals, ex-Minister of Education, and, until recently, Regional Vice President, Africa, World Bank, is both happy and sad. The mother of three is happy and grateful to God for making her to see her 50th birthday in a country where life expectancy for females is 47.76 years. But she is extremely sad that despite everything to salvage her country, Nigeria continues to move upside down like the bats of the night. No thanks to the massive corruption and misgovernance that continue to stunt the country’s growth. And like she did at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, recently, where he challenged the President Goodluck Jonathan Administration to ki ...
National News Wednesday, May 22, 2013 1. Senate, Reps okay emergency rule Want democratic structures to stay, Urge army to operate within rules of engagement Jonathan, Ban to discuss Boko Haram at AU meeting ‘Why Obama may not visit Nigeria’ Curfew relaxed in Adamawa Without any dissent, all 100 senators present at the Senate yesterday voted in favour of the state of emergency declared by President Goodluck Jonathan last week in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe States. But the voting was preceded by an hour of a closed-door session where the lawmakers expressed rule and eventually agreed to support it. Besides, Nigeria’s renewed confrontation with Boko Haram terrorists will form the kernel of a meeting next week in Addis Ababa at the African Union (AU) between President Goodluck Jonathan and United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, just as more details have emerged on why the United States (U.S.) President Barack Obama is leaving Nigeria out his second trip to Africa.

LETTER TO ACHEBE: My dear Late Prof. Chinuaramogu Achebe, if per chance you see this people: Late Tafawa Balewa: Tell him that the Unity of Nigeria he fought for is been ravaged by insecurity orchestrated by some of his great grand children.

Tell him that the Onitsha envirönment he wished to look like streets of London is today the worst and ugliest city in the world. Late Awolowo: I think you have told us about his war diplomacy and art of war during the Biafran/Nigerian War. But then, give him that last book you wrote that triggered yorubalistic intellectual bitterness to read and be reminded that 'THERE WAS A COUNTRY'. Late Aguiyi Ironsi: Ask him where the siblings of his Aguiyi are so that we can clown them and use them to put to an end this miscrants called boko haram.

Madam Giwa Caught with Cocaine in Her Hair at Abuja Airport Giwa Ayoka Sikirat, a 53-year old grandmother, has been arrested with cocaine hidden in her hair. Madam Giwa was apprehended at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, NAIA, Abuja, while on her way to Pakistan to deliver the dangerous drug. “There was no prior information on Madam Giwa as the drug was detected when a female officer carried out a body frisk on her during outward screening of passengers.” NDLEA Abuja Airport commander, Mr Hamisu Lawan, said a 59-year old accomplice, Joseph Umunna, an indigene of Anambra State, who brought Madam Giwa to the airport, was also arrested. It was discovered that the drug was concealed in her hair in Lagos by Umunna and his crew before she was taken to Abuja for the journey. Madam Giwa hails from Kwara State. She and Umunna will be charged to court in line with the NDLEA Act for unlawful exportation and conspiracy to export 1kg of cocaine.

Let me share with you what I shared yesterday at the Youth Empowerment And Remodelling School (YEARS) session at Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka. When it comes to your talent, your life and your career, you will experience a set of 'career manipulators' which I refer to as: PPSSM. P - Your Parents. P - Your Peers. S- Your Siblings. S- The Society. M - The Media. Your parents and siblings pose a much greater 'threat' because of your affection for them. They cripple you the most - that's what I know from research and experience. But, over to you, among this set of 'career manipulators,' which of them pose a greater threat to the usage of your talent as a yardstick in choosing a career?
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Maxi Okwu, spoke on the crisis rocking the party and the preparations for the next governorship election in Anambra State. EMMANUEL OLADESU was there. Why are you still laying claim to the chairmanship of APGA, despite the subsisting court order on the leadership tussle? Chief Victor Umeh did not win any appeal as people were wrongly made to believe. What he got was a stay of one of the four orders by the Court of Appeal. I wish I came with the document, I would have make a copy for you to read through. Out of the four orders that the Enugu State High Court made, only one was stayed. They stayed that aspect that restrained him from parading himself as the chairman of our party. The Court of Appeal agreed that all issues have been overtaken by events; that there was no convention. Second; that there should be a convention and that the NEC of the party should have met and ordered a convention. I think there are about four issues raised and ...

Dear Chinua, How are you doing? (I know this is a ridiculous question but I was taught to always ask that in a letter). Graciously allowing my imagination to wander, I can imagine the heavenly host described in the Bible offering you the preferential indomitable treatment you envisioned Nigerians to receive. Though, I don’t intend to treat this as a joke but c’mon your dream for this country was never fulfilled and that amounted to your effective abandonment. With utmost frankness, I believe every man has its faults. But before I ponder on that, failing to acknowledge your tremendous work to Nigeria and world at large will be a grievous lacuna. Humbly speaking, you are an encyclopedia of literature, a master of prose and a contemporary figure of African Studies. Your first highlight in "Things Fall Apart" made me realize that here was a man that painted the epoch of swindling and gigantic Christianity crushing the foundation of African Traditional Religion (turning and turning in the wide ...

“Besides the Jews, probably no other linguistic group has suffered so much persecution in history as the Igbo have been obliged to endure in Nigeria.” —Nnamdi Azikiwe, 1964 "Sadly, many years after the war ended, the cries of marginalisation of the Igbo ethnic group have become more stringent. The need to right the wrong has often dominated political discourse. In recent times, no event has highlighted the persecution the Igbo are still suffering than the plight of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra. The current travails of the group in the hands of the Nigerian government have prompted me to reflect on the injustice in our country. It has also re-opened the existence or otherwise of an underlying anti-Igbo feeling harboured by the Nigerian establishment." Bayo Olupohunda

I SEE NO FUTURE FOR NIGERIAN YOUTHS. When I was a kid, I was told that we are the future leaders of Nigeria, but to my greatest surprise as an adult which I am now, noting has happened to prove that we have a future in this country not to talk of becoming leaders of tomorrow. Then the big ? Is when will our own futurebegin? I had that for one to have a brighter future, you have to be educated which we did with all hope and trust that after the academic struggle, hunger, starvation, stress and lack of some basic amenities that makes education more easier yet there is no job rather we were asked to pay money before we can get a job in our fathers land what a shame to a nation like Nigeria. To me is a taboo for a son to by his father’s property instead of inheriting it, to our leaders is very wrong before God and Man for a citizen to pay up to just to get a job in his own country after graduation. Let me ask you yes you our leaders where do you expect a fresh graduate to get such amount of money from? Then ...

Breaking news.A public school teacher was arrested today at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, NAIA, Abuja as he attempted to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a compass, a slide-rule and a calculator. At a morning press conference, Attorney General Kemi Ogunsola said she believes the man is a member of the notorious Al-Gebra movement. She did not identify the man, who has been charged by the Nigerian Federal Police with carrying weapons of math instruction. 'Al-Gebra is a problem for us', the Attorney General said.

No amount of learning will make a man a good leader except he has the natural quality of being a leader. A leader worth is sort must be ready to risk everything include his life for the subordinate. SARDAUNA of sokoto, Tafawa Balewa, Obafemi Awolowo, and Dr NNAMDI AZIKIWE. These are leaders born with quality of leadership; integrity, courage, loyalty, selflessness and self discipline. God put our leaders right.
UNIZIK Student Shocks the Whole University. A pre science student of Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka (Mbaukwu Campus) shocked everybody on Thursday when he wore a wrapper to school. The student who is in E2, earlier had a bet with some guys in his lecture hall that he could wear a wrapper to school and the guys promised to give him N20,000 if he did. Guess what? The dude took the risk but lo and behold, after he stepped into his hall, the gals who could not hide their amusement started shouting, yelling and chanting. The noise eventually attracted the security officers to the Hall and the boy was fished out & planked with heavy logs of wood. These action nearly stirred a riot in the school, as students detested the brutality saying the guy had the right to wear anything he chooses.

PRESIDENT NNAMDI AZIKIWE’S REACTION TO NIGERIA’S FIRST MILITARY COUP – JANUARY 1966. Violence has never been an instrument used by us, as founding fathers of the Nigerian Republic, to solve political problems. In the British tradition, we talked the Colonial Office into accepting our challenges for the demerits and merits of our case for self-government. After six constitutional conferences in 1953, 1954, 1957, 1958, 1959, and 1960, Great Britain conceded to us the right to assert our political independence as from October 1, 1960. None of the Nigerian political parties ever adopted violent means to gain our political freedom and we are happy to claim that not a drop of British or Nigerian blood was shed in the course of our national struggle for our place in the sun. This historical fact enabled me to state publicly in Nigeria that Her Majesty’s Government has presented self-government to us on a platter of gold. Of course, my contemporaries scorned at me, but the facts of history are irrefutable ...
History in perspective. ''On June 19, 1966, based on very credible reports of an imminent coup, Madiebo rushed to Lagos to inform Ironsi, who responded by inviting Gowon, Kam Salem and M.D. Yusuf to listen to Madiebo’s account. The three gentlemen naturally denied the report and Madiebo was chastised for rumour-mongering. In Madiebo’s words, “Ironsi had lost his last opportunity to survive by asking the very people who were alleged to be plotting to overthrow him to investigate their plot and report to him''

NATION BUILDING, NATIONAL UNITY, NATIONAL LEADERS AND THE NATIONAL QUESTION: I like to see myself as one who has a more than average understanding of Nigeria's History. I also see research as one of my hobbies. I have noticed that in recent months the afore mentioned themes have been discussed rather vigourously, especially now that the country, seems to be precariously balanced on the precipice. I I would like to share some thoughts on the matter from the "historians" perspective. The problem we face now, in the words of the late Nnamdi Azikiwe, is how we can adapt the reality of "tribalism", to the " unreality of national unity", or as J.F. Ade -Ajayi puts it, " how to get the people to trust the Nigerian state to provide the same feeling of security and equity whch they instinctively feel in their traditional cultural or language group". The answer which most who have grappled with this problem have recommended is fair and equitable development; recognition and acceptance of the fact that each group is ...
E DEY PAIN ME O...GANGAN OOO! The tragedy in our presidential system of goverment is that the people really have no role.Once they vote,they are completely ignored until the next four years.It is only the executives and legislature that profit from our democracy.Conversely,we have a system of goverment that slights the people and a presidential villa that has completely fenced them.Worse still,they are now contructing an express lane from the villa to the Nnamdi azikiwe airport in abuja,which will make our leaders to be completely invicible to the people.

The first leg against Vital’O is billed for the weekend of March 15, 16 and 17 at the 22,000-seat capacity Prince Louis Rwagasore Stadium in Bujumbura, Burundi, while the reverse fixture will come up in two weeks time at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in Enugu.

APC must learn from mistakes of past merger attempts, says Former National Secretary, National Democratic Coalition (NADECO) Ayo Opadokun spoke to SEYE OLUMIDE on the prospect of the ongoing merger plans among major opposition parties in the country. He believes the arrangement could work if Nigerians support it. Excerpts: DO you think the history of political merger in Nigeria will favour the ongoing merger process of ACN, CPC, ANPP and APGA? In the First Republic, there was the Nigerian National Alliance (NNA), which stood for the conservatives while United Progressive Grand Alliance (UPGA) hoisted for the progressive. A fundamental reason they couldn’t overrun each other was due to the system of party politics at that time. There was a repeat of the situation during the Second Republic where we had the Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA) and the National Party of Nigeria (NPN). In the First Republic, the National Council of Nigerian Citizens (NCNC) together with the Northern People’s Congress (NPC) ...

Institutions of higher learning are considered as sine-qua-non of nation building. Without higher education or some semblance of education in Africa, especially in the colonial (pre-independence) era, the emergence of leaders of thought and action like the late Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Wangari Maathai of Kenya, Leopold Sedar Senghor of Senegal, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Obafemi Awolowo and Abubakar Tafawa of Nigeria, Nelson Mandela and Nadine Godimer both of South Africa respectively, etc. would not have been possible. Higher education and globalization are critical to Africa and should take its rightful place in the commity of nations
Obafemi Awolowo: Hero Of Yoruba, Killer Of Biafra, Betrayed By The North Obafemi Awolowo is the undisputed hero of the Yoruba tribe of Nigeria whose wartime policy of starvation and currency change helped kill the Biafran dream. The post colonial era of Nigerian history was dominated by three actors, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Obafemi Awolowo and Ahmadu Bello. Dr Azikiwe was an avowed nationalist who preferred one Nigeria above anything else. Sir Ahmadu Bello was a tribalist who initially preferred a balkanized Nigeria to enable his people live their religious and cultural life without external negative influence and was later reluctantly convinced to seek an agenda for a united Nigeria. Chief Obafemi Awolowo from the onset did not hide his preference for an Oduduwa Republic. Chief Awolowo was idolised by the Yorubas because he was able to transform the southwest into an educational and industrial hub in Africa and build a robust political climate. He so much understood the value of education that he made it free, a ...
But of course I will be at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium to see the biggest game of the week. I predict a 1-0 victory for Rangers.

From the Mouth of the Master Story Teller "Its crucial to note that the decision of an entire people, the Igbo people to leave Nigeria, did not come from Ojukwu alone but was informed by desires of the people and mandated by a body that contained some of the ;most distinguished Nigerians in history: Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Nigeria former Governor General & First Ceremonial President;Dr. Michael I. Okpara & Sir Francis Ibiam, former premier & governor of Eastern Nigeria, respectively; and Supreme Court Justice, Sir, Louis Mbanefo. Others included, the Educator, Dr Alvan Ikoku, First Republic Minister, Dr. K.O Mbadiwe; as well as Mr. N.U Akpan; Mr. Joseph Echeruo, Ekukuniam Bassey; Chief Samuel Mbakwe; Chief Jerome Udorji and Chief Mrs Margaret Ekpo." Culled from Chinua Achebe's Book "There was a Country"
NIGERIAN LEADERS AS THEY COME AND GO DR. Nnamdi Azikiwe: Confused and selfish leader who forgot his people and thought of only himself. Alhaji Abubakar Tafawa Balewa: The tea drinking Prime minister with kola nut colored teeth. Teleguided by the sarduana Ahmadu Bello. Was just there watching and collecting his salary not knowing what to do. General Aguiyi Ironsi: The man who brought in unitary style of governance into Nigeria and started the nonsense called centralization. General Yakubu Gowon: the infant leader at his time who supervised the genocide in Nigeria and paid the udoji award, causing the first inflation to creep into the country. General Murtala Mohammed: cut at his prime by some monstrous military tigers. Started well. General Olusegun Obasanjo: Operation feed the nation and festac 77 was his way of looting then. Alhaji Shehu Shagari: Austerity measures and wanton corruption by his cabinet members was the other of the day. General Mohamadu Buhari: Marched all the corrupt politicians to jail, ...

Have you heard of ASSOCIATION OF IGBO YOUTH INITIATIVE MOVEMENT ? It is no fairytale the story of how right-thinking youth galvanize to take a stand in a given challenging situation. Down memory lane, in the story of Nigerian Independent, many youths are today being celebrated as the country’s icons, and are remembered to have stand very tall and have written their names in the sand of time. Even as a youth, our distinguished and purpose-driven son, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe fought doggedly and was determined to free Nigerians from the hands of the menacing whites. Although Pa Azikiwe was not alone in the liberation course, the likes of Alhaji Tafawa Belewa, Sir Ahmedu Bello, Dr. Akanu Ibiam to mention but a few saw reasons to identify with the initiative to fight against the domineering white rule. To gain Independent for Nigerians was their driving force and slogan. Do you know that when the youths speak strongly with one voice about a candidate in an election the winner is ascertain?

Can there be real solutions to Campus Cult killings in Nigeria and is the trophy in contention worth it? Another student of the Lagos State University (LASU), simply identified as Kabiru, was on Sunday night allegedly killed by suspected cultists. Kabiru was shot dead at about 10pm at Abeokuta St., Okokomaiko, Lagos. A 400 level Banking and Finance student of the university and a musician, Damilola Damochie was on February 28 shot dead by suspected cultists at the institution’s main gate. The sources alleged that the killing of Kabiru was a reprisal to the murder of Damochie. “There are three main cult groups in LASU. According to investigations, Eiye, Buccaneer and Black Axe are the 3 major groups in LASU. But Eiye and Buccaneer which has lost a member each are on war part. Pix - (L: Kabiru, R: Damilola)
THERE WAS A COUNTRY: BY Chinua Achebe. Honestly this is a must read book. It is a Personal history of the republic of Biafra. A country that had nothing at it's disposal yet survived the military might of Nigerian troops, survived hunger/starvation/ kwashiokor and fought gallantly for three years to resist the better equiped Nigerian forces until it finally fell in 1970. The late Ojukwu made a tactical error to have declared Eastern Nigeria an independent country, but no true leader will watch while thousands of his people were being massacred in the north in what appears to be a revenge for the killing of Ahmadu Bello by major Kaduna Nzeogu. The intellectual capacity of Chinua Achebe in story telling is rare of his generaton even at 83years this literary icon tells the horrific story of the Nigerian genocide in Biafra. Biafrans were starved because of the economic blockade and this decision was taken by Chief Obafemi Awolowo..the late sage commited a war crime because the united nations were never in s . ...

TORRENTS of condolences have continued to pour like raindrops on The Guardian’s late Assistant Political Editor, John-Abba Ogbodo who died in a ghastly auto crash last Thursday. The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday described the death of John Agba-Ogbodo, as one that would deny The Guardian, journalism and Nigeria as a whole one of the best human resources. PDP National Organising Secretary, Abubakar Mustapha and the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Olisah Metuh, who brought their party’s words of condolence to The Guardian Abuja Bureau said Ogbodo’s demise was still a shock to the PDP. The Deputy Senate President, Chief Ike Ekweramadu for whom the late Ogbodo and other colleagues were billed to cover his presentation of a Lecture at the Convocation Ceremony of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka - Anambra State, was the first to extol the virtues of the late Ogbodo yesterday when he called at The Guardian Newspapers Limited ( GNL) Abuja Bureau Office in the Jabi D . ...

Anambra State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Lawrence Ikeako, said it would be out of place to use the result from the three bodies originally taken away for autopsy to represent the cause of the death of all the corpses found floating on EzuRiver. Prof. Anthony Agbata of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital, Nnewi led the team of pathologists, and a commissioner from the Force Headquarters led the police side.
Nnamdi azikiwe resurrects as Enyimba of ABA battles Enugu Rangers and ojukwu heads heavens commentary of the Match
I know most Nigerians pretends to be the must honest and perfect people but refuses to acknowledged the problem and reality of today's contemporary Nigeria and even refused to voice their displeasure over the bad and dishonest government and inequality melted on us Nigerians by our government. But they tends to be appalled when others who don't entertained their sentiment spoke and voice their displeasure over what they seen. These our sentiments and the attitude we exhibited turned out to be our very problem. The problem of bad governance we complained; This set of people remonstrates and overlook others who protest fervently in order to see the change we all clamoring. Most Nigerian leaders in their public speech and article's make numerous references to the leadership of Nnamdi Azikiwe, Obafemi Awolowo, Mushod Abiola and few others to mention, but tends to make a little used of their times in office to write their names and achievement on the famous book so that the next generation could as matter of p ...

THE GENERATOR GENERATION In a few days, my father would be 58. He recently told me that he had never seen 24 hours light before through out his years on earth so far.By May 13, yours truly would become 31.I have lived in Lagos for 24 years and in Uyo for 7 years straight and can say that I have not seen 24 hours light all my life so far. Question: Will my children see 24 hours light? Will your children ever see it? Believe it or not, more than N 100 billion has been invested in order to rectify the so called power issue from the Obasanjo Government till date.What seems to be issue? A few years ago Michelin, a french Tyre company folded up in Nigeria.Their reason? No light. Japan and China make billions from Nigeria yearly as we are THE LARGEST CONSUMERS OF GENERATORS IN THE WORLD.

OPINION: WHETHER AREWA CONSULTATIVE FORUM LIKES IT OR NOT In the project called Nigeria, all ethnic groups and geo-political zones are equal partners. Although some groups have pretentions to superiority over others it is a clear hallucination as such groups cannot place such cladestine claims to superiority on any Terra Ferma. If any group should lay claim to superiority, it should be the minorities from the South-South, the content of whose lands account for 90percent of the nations earnings. It is on this premise that I congratulate President Goodluck Jonathan for the master strokes that have in one fell swoop seen the neutralisation of my friend and performing governor,Rotimi Ameachi and the installation of Chief Tony Anenih as chair of the PDP board of trustees-. I have travelled the lenght and breadth of this country. I have studied in depth the history of this country and I have witnessed firsthand history being made in this country.

Recently, i read a story about a male Prescience student of Nnamdi Azikiwe University who was molested by the school security for dressing in wrapper (the igbo traditional attire) to school. The boy had a bet (N20,000) with some of his friends that he would dress in the native attire to school. He did but unfortunately, the female students screamed when they saw him, such that instead of the appreciation that should have attracted, it attracted the school security who chose to beat him up. Then i ask; how is that a crime? Has any student being beaten before for wearing skimpy, near naked dresses? Has anyone being molested for wearing sagging jeans? Which way Nigeria?

assassinated in Enugu A Calamity befell the police at the weekend. Kwara State Police Commissioner Chinweike Asadu was shot dead on Saturday in his home state Enugu. His orderly, Aloha Olaniyi, and driver, Oliver Omeh, were injured. Both of them are lying critically at the National Orthopeadic Hospital in Enugu. Asadu, who was transferred to Kwara last year had only about 50 days left to retire. Enugu police spokesman Ebere Amaraizu said Asadu was gunned down as he was about to enter his Enugu home in Abakpa Nike around 9.45 p.m. on Saturday. Amaraizu said the officer was rushed to the National Orthopaedic Hospital, Enugu, where he was confirmed dead. He was driving in when the assailants, who seemed to have laid ambush for him struck, about 100 metres from his house. The late Asadu, according to sources, saw off a visitor, his lawyer-friend, and was returning home when he was attacked. He left behind the official escort team that came with him from Kwara Police Command. As the late CP was returning home, ...

I have been unable to clear the sayings of Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe on "the state of Nigeria in relation to the state of Nigerian youths" from my head and mind since it was again brought to the fore of my thoughts last week by Dr. Vincent Onodugo of the University of Nigeria, Enugu campus during the presentation of his paper "Visionary Youths" at the Youth Leadership Forum during the Community of Yahweh Men Association Conference in Enugu last week. What strikes a chilling blow to my bones is the accuracy of Dr. Azikiwe's visionary statement and the "blindness" of our political and moral leaders to see potent prophecy being fulfilled. More sad is the recklessness in poverty of our minds to comprehend the depth and magnitude of our collective loss in the our failure to arrest, repair and change the trend. What did Dr. Azikiwe say so long ago, that is now resounding from the depths of his grave? He was asked by a journalist to make a prediction, what he thinks is the future of Nigeria, I believe it was on one of ...

FG to commission new look Kano Airport. The Federal Government is set to commission the Mallam Aminu Kano International airport,following the successful completion of rehabilitation work by the Ministry of Aviation. George Uriesi, managing director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), who disclosed this recently, said the commission is expected to take place this quarter. The Mallam Aminu Kano International airport is one of the 11 airports being remodelled by the government under the first phase of the project, comprising 11 airports, out of which two, including the GAT, Murtala Mohammed Airport, Lagos and GAT Nnamdi Azikiwe airport, Abuja, were commissioned last year.

According to him, with t ...
Pantia spirrow writes; J. B. DANQUAH THE ANTI- NATIONALIST AND SECESSIONIST: Perhaps, the best way to show Danquah’s anti-nationalist and secessionist stance is to pose the following questions: First, aside from his loyalty and collusion with the unlawful British colonial government and imperial British crown, what drastic measures did J. B. Danquah take to end colonialism in the Gold Coast? Second, how was he a national hero when he collaborated with his brother "Sir" Nana Ofori Atta I, and the colonial government to suppress the Aborigines Rights Protection Society (ARPS) and the National Congress of British West Africa? Third, in view of his total contempt for the ordinary people in the country, especially the so-called immigrant Kwahu, Ga, Krobo, Ewe, Northern, Juaben and Akwapim people in Akyem Abuakwa, how was he a nationalist? Fourth, was he not the one who called for Nkrumah’s neck and also rejoiced over Nkrumah’s imprisonment in connection with the Positive Action campaign in 1950? Fifth, d ...

TODAY: NIGERIA'S LEADERS FROM 1960 TILL PRESENT! SIR ABUBAKAR Tafawa Balewa: He was the first prime minister of an independent Nigeria. Born a commoner in the north of colonial Nigeria, he trained as a teacher and joined the government in 1952 as Minister of Works. He later served as Minister of Transport. In 1957, he was elected Chief Minister, forming a coalition government between the NPC and the National council for Nigeria and the Cameroons, led by Nnamdi Azikiwe. He was overthrown and killed in a military coup on January 15, 1966, as were many other leaders, including his old companion Ahmadu Bello. His body was discovered by a roadside near Lagos 6 days after he was ousted from office. Balewa was buried in Bauchi. DR. NNAMDI AZIKIWE: Born on November 16, 1904, he hails from Nnewi in Anambra State and died in 1996 at the University of Nigeria Teacher Hospital, Enugu. His portrait adorns Nigeria’s N500 note.

Chinua Achebe's new book, 'There Was a Country: A Personal History of Biafra' , has really brought to the fore those issues some actors on the 30-month gruesome Nigerian/Biafran war would not want to hear. Achebe's book has revealed, among other things, the genocide visited on Biafrans by the Nigerian establishment. What Achebe said is not novel to the Igbos who witnessed the war and those that have read books on the war. The war has generated and is still generating many scholarly articles. What Achebe said can only sound foreign and unreal to those who have made up their mind outrightly to disbelieve his personal account of the war. The book, no doubt, generated heat and is still generating heat in some circles. While some opinion leaders from the victorious Nigerian side and the vanquished Biafran side have called for a truce on the matter, some others like former President Olusegun Obasanjo has advised that Igbos should forget about that ugly chapter in our history. Others have urged the Igbos to forg ...

WATCH YOUR WORDS & ATITTUDE TO AN UPRIGHT ELDER!! “It is the mere ranting of an ant” * Chuba Okadigbo,(1981) then Political adviser to President Shehu Shagari, dismissing Nnamdi Azikiwe’s complaints of election irregularities. “My boy, may you live to your full potential, ascend to as dizzy a height as is possible for anyone of your political description in your era to rise. May you be acknowledged world-wide as you rise like an eagle atop trees, float among the clouds, preside over the affairs of fellow men...as leaders of all countries pour into Nigeria to breath into her ear. But then, Chuba, if it is not the tradition of our people that elders are roundly insulted by young men before the world as you have unjustly done to me, may your reign come to an abrupt and shattering close. As you look ahead, Chuba, as you see the horizon, dedicating a great marble palace that is the envy of the world, toasted by the most powerful men in the land, may the great big hand of fate *** it all away from ...
It is only a foolish man that argues with a man with a gun. -Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe.
Super Eagles player, Sunday Mba says he is a Enugu Rangers player not a Warri Wolves thus defying the Nigeria Premier League [NPL] ruling of him being a Warri Wolves. He was unveiled on wednesday by Enugu Rangers at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium where he was handed the jersey No 8. “I have always been a Rangers player. I used to be a player of Warri Wolves.” On Wolves ordering him to resume to training not later than Friday, the former Enyimba and Dolphin star said, “I am not keen on teaming up with Wolves. My dream is a move to Europe and if any team come up (with a deal), they should dialogue with Rangers.Una see the matter? Warri Wolves...I need some explanation about all the shout here about Sunday Mba.

Fatal sex: Man dies during marathon sex with 2 undergraduates in Onitsha A middle-aged man has collapsed and died while having marathon sex with two undergraduates in one of the hotels in the commercial city of Onitsha, Anambra State. The deceased had checked into the hotel located at the back of the Central Police Station (CPS), Onitsha with the two women he met earlier and exchanged phone numbers in the day. While having sex with the girls, he allegedly collapsed and died inside the hotel room. The man had allegedly pleaded with the women to made love with them without using condom, which did not go down well with the latter. However, upon further persuasion and negotiation by the deceased to add more money, one of them agreed while the other refused and allegedly went into the bathroom to take a shower when she noticed that the deceased was already having sex with her partner without condom. She was said to have pushed the man away from the girl before * after which the deceased started shouting and di ...
PART 2 WHETHER HAUSA LIKES IT OR NOT The British had always been more comfortable dealing with the Hausa-Fulani. It was in reference to the Hausa-Fulani that Lord Fredrick Lugard while xraying the character of the people populating Nigeria stated words to the effect that we were a servile people,very obedient to authority and willing to learn at the feet of the whiteman while at the same time easily excited at the prospect of war with our neighbours. As at 1933 Nnamdi Azikiwe had returned to Lagos from Howard University as 'Proffesor' of Political Science. Obafemi Awolowo by the early forties was already a qualified lawyer in the United Kingdom. Ahmadu Bello on the other hand was barely educated and had as his pointsman Tafawa Balewa who was a grade II teacher. Unfortunately before the British lowered the Union Jack and set sail to England they had succesfully cuddled the Hausa-Fulani and like pampered children inbued in them a mentality that they actually owned Nigeria. This truism is exemplified in the ...

Hello Friends. It is said that no one is indispensable. True as this statement is, I'd like to say that one can be missed sordidly to the extent of wishing he/she were still around. In this regard, may I ask: who are you? By this I mean, what stuff are u made of? If you are being dispensed with, are you likewise being missed? Therefore, I urge you to stand out in your chosen profession or line of duty. Make your presence felt; make a difference; know your job; have confidence in yourself; learn to look someone in the eyes and tell him/her (even your superiors) your candid opinion on the way forward on issues that require your contribution, albeit politely and responsibly. Stop being a 'follow follow' kind of person. Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe once said: "If you cannot be the bush, be a tree". Don't be the provervial chicken whose is weight is less felt within or out of a pack. No matter the level you occupy, make positive impact so that whenever you are 'dispensed with', or you opted out voluntarily, you will be ...
1. “I have one advice to give to our politicians. If they have decided to destroy our national unity, then they should summon a round-table conference to decide how our national assets should be divided before they seal their doom by satisfying their lust for office. I make this suggestion because it is better for us and many admirers abroad that we should disintegrate in peace and not in pieces. Should the politicians fail to heed this warning, then I will venture the prediction that the experience of the Democratic Republic of the Congo will be a child’s play if ever it comes to our turn to play such a tragic role.” — Nnamdi Azikiwe, December 1964, “A Dawn Address” As reported in Kirk Greene’s book (page 21]

Tinubu, Buhari and APC Strange Bedfellows? By Lekan Wasiudeen In response to the recent merger of the opposition parties in Nigeria, where Senator Bola Hammed Tinubu and General Mohammad Buhari are key factors to success of the merger, some online commentators and writers have expressed reservation on the workability of the merger based on the Ideological differences of these men. A particular writer went as far as saying that a 'pious' Buhari could never had anything in common with a 'corrupt' Tinubu but the later just wanted to ride on the back of the former to get to power. Some observers even worried about the composition of the politicians in the opposition's APC and how they are different from PDP, as so many of them are disgruntled PDP members. Let me say I have political admiration for Senator Bola Hammed Tinubu and that is very obvious in my 'short' piece. Let me also confess that I am a card carrying member of Action Congress of Nigeria, a party in which Tinubu is a national ...

Kidnap Victim, Prof.Ilochi Okafor’s Son-In-Law Escapes From Kidnappers The son-in-law to a former university Vice-Chancellor who was a kidnap victim last November escaped from kidnappers who posed as patients in a hospital. Dr. John Onyiuke, who is the Chief Medical Director (CMD) at Beke Memorial Hospital, a private clinic located in Nimo, Anambra State and married to one of Prof. Ilochi Okafor’s daughters, exclusively told National Daily that one of his abductors posed as patient while waiting for him to resume duty Monday morning. “This morning by 8: 30am, one of my staff called me that there was a patient waiting for me and because I live very close to the hospital. When I got to the clinic, I saw a young man who was beingchecked up; one of the nurses was taking his blood pressure. I was informed that he was the patient waiting for me. So I went into my office upstairs and startedarranging my table as it was Monday morning. After waiting for like three minutes, I saw the patient rush into my off ...

Which way Nigeria- which way to go! Do we still love our fatherland? Sunny Okusun legendary composer/musician only wasted inspiration on that song for Nigerians. Oh Nigeria! how fast are our patriots exiting. Now we are left at the mercy of alliens who have gained rulership- strangers in power. No compassion and compunction for the citizenry. The few sane patriots among them are drowned by an ocean of these currupt breed who did not take after their fathers. Herbert Marculey, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Tafawa Belewa, Obafemi Awolowo and Anthony Enahoro etc turn in their graves at a country where public lootery has been entrenched to the extent allegation of corruption only earn one celebrity status. Today pro Maina's protesters storm Abuja, yesterday Chief Bode George had a statesmans reception after serving his jail term etc. Anyway, i still LOVE my father land i do not know about you!

THE MOST CORRUPT. Since Nigeria got her independence on october 1st of 1960, we have had twelve (12) previuos administrations of both the military and the elected presidents and head of states respectively. Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe Ebele Goodluck Jonathan is the thirteenth (13) and the present president. GEJs administration is full of noise but empty of substance. Spends about a billion naira per year to feed for himself, wife and two kids. In 2011 election year about 2.6 trillion naira just disappeared from the public which is the highest disappearance of public funds per year in the country's history. Intolerance of criticism, suffers accute inferiority complex and seems to dislike any war against corruption. A former minister of education and vice president of world bank, Mrs. Obi Ezekwesili accused the government and that of his predecessor of not accounting for about 67 billion dollars. Since then his government has been responding in a manner of headless chicken. bussy insulting the woman instead of statin ...
THE MAN DR KWAME NKRUMAH Kwame Nkrumah emerged from a typically humble Ghanaian Socio-economic background. By the close of the last millennium, however, he had become Africa’s Man of the Millennium. He was born on September 21 1909; and trained at Achimota School in Accra as a certified teacher graduating in 1930. During his years at Achimota School and also the few years he taught in primary schools in Ghana Nkrumah came under the influence of Pan-Africanist scholars like E. Kwegyir Aggrey, whose firm belief in the Africa renaissance and the advancement of the Africans through purposeful education inspired him to decide to study in the United Sates of America (US). Under the influence of implacable nationalists like Kobina Sekyi, Samuel R. Woode (a veteran nationalist and Secretary of the National Congress of British West Africa) and anti-imperialists such as Nnamdi Azikiwe (Editor-in-Chief of the African morning Post) and I. T Wallace Johnson all of whom were actively campaigning against colonialism a ...

ATTENTION! PEOPLE. How do you view the issue of Nigeria federal government constructing a second niger bridge at Onitsha through concession?,why must Ndi-Igbo be made to pay for every capital project sited in their part of the country?,I could remember way back when i was a kid as Igbos laboured to build the Imo air port without federal assistance, I could equally remember how difficult it was for the federal government to build a brand new federal medical centre in Owerri instead,they took over an already existing Owerri general hospital.Why is the FGN always tight handed when it concerns big projects in the eastern part of the country?,we have seen bigger projects execution in other regions of the country without anybody mentioning concession.I'm really saddened by hearing this infact,this is a clear case of double standard or what i may tag hanky-panky on the part of the federal government. Why are they not constructing the new FCT Nnamdi Azikiwe air port runway through concession? and why not the vice ...
