INFORMATION--- President of Nigeria The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is the head of state and head of the national executive of Nigeria. The President of Nigeria is also the commander-in-chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces. The current President of Nigeria is Goodluck Jonathan, who was sworn into office in May 2010. History On October 1, 1960, Nigeria gained independence from Britain. An all-Nigerian Executive Council was headed by a Prime Minister, Alhaji Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa. On November 16, 1960, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, became the first Governor-General of a Federation of three Regions of the North, East and West, with Lagos as the Federal Capital. Each of the Regions was headed by a Premier with a Governor as Ceremonial Head. On October 1, 1963, Nigeria became a Federal Republic and severed whatever ties were left with Britain. Nigeria decided, however, to remain in the British Commonwealth of Nations. The Governor-General's position was, therefore, re-designated as President. In Janu ...

A LETTER TO Dr. Nelson Mandela Dear Dr. Nelson, Please when you get to d world beyond, tell Herbert MacAulay that the party he founded has been turned to People Destroying Party. Tell Obafemi Awolowo that we now pay school fees without going to school. Help me tell Nnamdi Azikiwe that the long wall to democracy he built has fallen, only the cracked fence still stands. Tell Chief Anthony Enaharo that the independent nation he fought for is no more. Tell Alh. Ahmadu Bello that our judicial system now favors only the rich. Also tell Baba Fela that Terry G is the new afro beat king. Tell Muritala Mohammed that we still use kerosene to cook and candles to see. Tell King Jaja of Opobo that we are still slaves in our own country. Pls tell Dele Giwa that the Nigerian press has been bought with money. ... and please don't forget to tell Prof. Iyayi that Federal Govt paid N200 Billion into ASUU account but they have not seen alert. and tell Chinua Achebe that things has fall apart
"Buhari’s following, in my opinion, ranks next to that enjoyed by politicians such as Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Sir Ahmadu Bello and Chief Obafemi Awolowo. These guys were demi-gods. They enjoyed natural following – devoid of bags of rice and gallons of kerosene"- Simon Kolawole

Terrorist, Ogwuche Says I won't beg for forgiveness Preliminary interrogation of Aminu Sadiq Ogwuche Nyanya bomb blast suspect who was recently extradited from Sudan, has began with stunning observation at State Security Service (SSS) Headquarters in Abuja. Contrary to the expectation of interrogation officers that Ogwuche will become sober as a result of his ordeal and probably ask for forgiveness. He is allegedly defiant and vowing to continue with what he termed as spiritual revolution at the least opportunity. The suspected terrorist, who was wearing trousers and long sleeve with blue colour stripes, said in fluent English language that he has no regrets for his dastardly act in the April 14, 2014 bomb blast that killed over 70 people and injured about 120 others at Nyanya area of Abuja. “I don't deny that I am the executioner of the Nyanya bomb incident. I did it in order to draw government's attention to our demands. We want our detained colleagues released and compensation paid to those of our co ...

Chimamanda Speaks on Anambra State Community and Consensus: My Hope For Anambra State by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Ndi Anambra na ndi obia, ekenekwa m unu. Good afternoon. I feel greatly honored to be here today. I want to thank our governor, Chief Willie Obiano, for inviting me. As we mark the first one hundred DAYS of his term, I would like to commend him for his vision and ambition in the areas of education, health and agriculture. And particularly security. Most of us know how, for a long time, Onitsha has been a security nightmare. If you are travelling, you do NOT want to be in Upper Iweka after 6 PM because of the fear of armed robbers. But today, because of our new governor’s initiative, people in Onitsha no longer live in fear. True freedom is to be able to live without fear. A relative told me that you can drop your mobile phone on the ground in Upper Iweka and come back hours later and still see it there, which was NOT the case in the past. And which is one of the best ways to measure leadersh ...

Unlike Ojukwu, those with a more national interest didn't support the war. People like Nnamdi Azikiwe.
This country gained independence in 1960 and upon signing the Declaration of Independence became a Republic in 1963. Local politicians immediately set about the business of protecting the interests of their regions. The Northern People's Party represented the interest of the Hausa/Fulani, the NCNC represented the interests of the predominantly Igbo region, and the AG Action Group represented the West and the interests of the Yorubas. Even the leader of the NPC Sir Ahmadu Bello opted to be the Premier of the Northern region and sent his deputy Tafawa Balewa to be Prime Minister and head of government at the center with Nnamdi Azikiwe of NCNC as the ceremonial Head of State. This history is important to show that our so called founding fathers had little or no interest in articulating a national agenda they were all probably with the exception of Zik, tribal war lords thrust upon the national limelight by the premature yearnings for self governance. However, the Nigeria state was given expression by the def ...

THE MANY INTANGIBLE ACHIEVEMENTS OF GOVERNOR MU’AZU BABANGIDA ALIYU By Musa Suleiman - Globally, celebrated leaders are not remembered because of the number of structures or edifices that they have constructed. History remembered them those who impacted on humanity based on issues that are of global interest. These people; Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Sir Ahmadu Bello, Tafawa Balewa, Kwame Nkrumah and a host of others, became reference points in history because of the enduring, mostly intangible legacies they left behind for us today. Awolowo and Ahmadu Bello may have constructed and established institutions, built houses and constructed roads. But many years down the line, these infrastructures are either dilapidated, abandoned, partially or completely non- existent. Yet, they remain reference point to this generation and beyond because they knew that the only way to invest in the future was to give their people qualitative and functiona ...
Had i remained an illiterate, i would have complied with the demand of convention that everything is the will of God"... Nnamdi Azikiwe'. The attitudes of Nigerians to the present problems facing the country makes me research for the meaning of the word, illiteracy' from the context of the quote above, and who in the right sense of its' definition is an illiterate? I want to start the search from around our boarders; "in the Nigerian context, who is an illiterate? Then can we further relate the responses to the above quote from ZIKs' book, THE ODYSEY; to decifer if the present events in Nigeria is the will of GOD or are the massive number of the graduate chunks in Nigeria actually graduated illiterates? I trade my appology for any perceived repulsion from this piece but one will not persecute me if you read through the remarks of many matured and seemingly educated Nigerians on issues boardering on the country that covers their indentity on international relations.

Sanusi Lamido Sanusi's speech in response to Sir Olaniwun Ajayi's book titled "NIGERIA, AFRICA'S FAILED ASSET?" "Let me start by saying that I am Fulani (laughter). My grandfather was an Emir and therefore I represent all that has been talked about this afternoon. Sir Ajayi has written a book. And like all Nigerians of his generation, he has written in the language of his generation. "My grandfather was a Northerner, I am a Nigerian. The problem with this country is that in 2009, we speak in the language of 1953. Sir Olaniwun can be forgiven for the way he spoke, but I cannot forgive people of my generation speaking in that language. "Let us go into this issue because there are so many myths that are being bandied around. Before colonialism, there was nothing like Northern Nigeria, Before the Sokoto Jihad, there was nothing like the Sokoto caliphate. The man from Kano regard himself as bakane.

BEFORE THE MILITARY STRIKE! President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday warned Nigeria’s political class that history would not forgive them if the country fails. Mr. Jonathan urged the political class to ask their supporters and followers across the country to focus on saving the nation’s democracy. The president was speaking at a summit of all political parties held at the International Conference Center, Abuja. “We must reinforce and recommit our various supporters across the nation to the Nigerian project irrespective of party affiliation, ideological differences and alliances,” Mr. Jonathan said. “History will not judge us kindly if this country fails as a result of our actions and inactions. “Let us bear in mind that no advantage or benefit can be gained by any political party over the other if our democracy fails. We have no choice but to work together and the time is now.” Reviewing the nation’s political outlook, Mr. Jonathan said he noted with regrets the comments and conducts of lea ...
Sanusi: The Realisation Of A Dream Agbo-Paul Augustine — June 13, 2014 How could a seven-year-old be so bold as to express his desire to become emir? That may have been what ran through the mind of Rev Father Cletus Johnson as he read the dream a little boy in his school had penned down. The gentle Father Johnson, who was the headmaster of St. Anne’s Primary School, Kakuri, Kaduna, Kaduna State, where Sanusi Lamido Sanusi began his long walk to the throne of Kano Emirate, was pushed by curiosity to discover that the tiny pupil in his school was no ordinary little boy, but one with a big dream. As he flipped through the forms filled by pupils of the school in 1947, he was taken aback by what Sanusi had written down – he dreamed of becoming the emir of Kano. And so the day came when, 47 years later, that bold child, now a grown and accomplished man on many fronts, was handed the staff of office as the 57th emir of Kano by the governor of Kano State, Dr Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, on June 9, 2014. He succ ...

Nigeria Will you for once think? You call them cows, cattle and all sort of names but they are always smarter than you. NPC used NCNC to grab power. Nnamdi Azikiwe was used. After, NNDP of Samuel Akintola was used. Except for bigots, Awolowo caused the who scenario and fracas with miscalculated steps and power greed. An Igbo man and a Yoruba man were used by an Hausa man. Kudos to the Hausa man. As intelligent as Awolowo was, he fell prey. He once said he can't serve under any Hausa man because they lack the basic educational criteria. Well, he came under Gowon and he was used. He had hoped after it, that he would be favoured to be the President. He lost. Again, a Yoruba man in the person of Olusegun Obasanjo was used to arm-twist and outsmart him. He was rigged off. Ojukwu himself like Nnamdi Azikiwe aligned with NPN of the north after the civil war. Respect again to the north. Abiola tricked his own man, Tunde Idiagbon to go to Makkah for lesser hajj after carefully orchestrating the invitation to come ...

THE EMIR SPOKE...(2) Tell me, how many governors has South West produced after Awolowo that are role models of leadership? How many governors has the East produced like Nnamdi Azikiwe that can be role models of leadership? How Many governors in the Niger Delta are role models of leadership? Tell me. There is no evidence statistically that any part of this country has produced good leaders. You talk about Babangida and the economy. Who were the people in charge of the economy during Babangida era? Olu Falae, Kalu Idika Kalu. What state are they from in the North? We talk ethnicity when it pleases us. It is hypocrisy.

HOW GULLIBLE ARE SOME NIGERIANS? This country has really lost real patriots who believe in a genuine cause and are ready to die for it. Is amazing that no media house, social media activists, public analysts, commentators, reporters, etc dare mention the over 200 Chibok girls suffering pains and humiliation in the hands of terrorists at Sambisa forest in Borno state. So all of a sudden, the whole attention has been shifted to an unimportant activities like turbaning of an emir? What a generation of gullible Nigerians? If Ahmadu Bello, Obafemi Awolowo, Sarduana of Sokoto, Tafawa Balewa, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Ernest Okoli, Eyo Ita and other distinguish patriots were reasoning the same way we do today, Nigeria wouldn't have gotten independence. Really, I am amaze. May the soul of those great patriots rest in peace. May we all wake up from our slumber and face the real issues of life for the progress of our country Nigeria.

I wasn't taught history in class but was told that Nigeria was held captive in her own land . It took Great men like Enahoro, Tafawa Balewa , Nnamdi Azikiwe , Obafemi Awolowo to name but a few to pull some strings n free her from the British capitivity that will later be called colonialism . Nigeria was free but come to think of it how free are we when we don't trust the neighbor next door ?
Every morning when I wake up, I usually feel this ... I do not know how to express it, but its surely a feeling that say to me "Where are we heading, which way forward Nigeria." In the 60s, 70s and 80s; at the age of 22 to 38, you are a role model and standing on your feet. What has happened to us as Nigerian Youths? My heart bleeds for my Nation Nigeria and the continent of Africa. Each time you hear names like Sarduana of Sokoto, Akintola, Tafawa Balewa, Obafemi Awolowo, Murtala Mohammed, Chief Enahoro, Queen Amina of Zaria, Moremi, Enikpi of Igala land, Kaduna Uzogwu, Benjamin Adekunle, Babangida, Abacha, Buhari, Idiagbon, Shehu Musa Yar'adua (Snr/Jnr) and Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe of blessed memories, you feel proud being a Nigerian. What is happening to us now? Youths taking to terrorists activities with impunity. How do we want our generation to be remembered? Let us all be sincere and true to this nation cos we owe it a responsibility to really make this Nation great. Lets once more go back to being PATRI ...

The problem be say dis may the same gal wey I play the game come dey tell me say " O boy u score goal 4 dat Val day o" cuz dis may nd April last month, I no see my sum tin sum tin.

What should I do my dear God fearing people, cuz I'm really confused here. I no wan dey responsible 4 an own goal scored by another player
Great and indomitable Nigerians, history shows that there are no invincible enemies and that there never have been. This land Nigeria and its people have lost too much. Nigerians owes that vow to the countless dead who lie buried because of Boko Haram actions corruption and Incompetent leadership. The great Nigeria people are brave people. Remember your past heroes who fought against the mighty British Empire. Nigerians are always winners when they come together as one people. I salute our warriors, liberators and freedom fighters, the defendant of our land, who fought tirelessly against the mighty British Empire invention of our land. The indomitable Chief Nana Olumu of Isekiri kingdom, the great Oba Ovonramwen of Benin, the great Ekumeku movement of Igbo land, the courageous and great Sultan Mohammade Ahtaheru of the first Sokoto caliphate, Oyo Empire and others. I salute the new nationalist movement led by Herbert MacAulay; Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe. “O’ Nigerians, our hero’s past shall never be in vein ...

"Describing his own nature Dr. Jonathan himself has said, “I am more of an introvert. In the higher institution, many of my colleagues tagged me the triangular student you know from lectures to the Refectory (to eat) and to the hostel. But that is not totally accurate. I did attend some discos. But I am not an all-out socialite.” A campaign slogan described Dr. Jonathan as “a breath of fresh air” in Nigerian politics on the road to the 2011 general elections. Considering his age, his level of education is apt. Nigeria has never had a President from the southern minorities or, since Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe was appointed ceremonial President of the Republic, one who had obtained a doctorate degree in his professional area of study."...culled from Wind of Hope
Between Lamido of Adamawa and Afenifere Leaders of Yoruba nation in the South-West (presumably represented by the self-styled Afenifere Renewal Group) lately took a stand on Nigeria's future constitutional arrangements being discussed at the on-going national conference. According to the Afenifere group, "it is either Regional Autonomy or nothing." The Group then threatened to walk out of the Nigerian Federation. A vested section of the press rightly interpreted such threat as secession, always shouted down in political discussions depending on the source. A critical examination of South-West's major demands will show that such (demand) will apply to all sections of the country. It might therefore be wrong for the conference to reject or to have rejected Afenifere's proposals. But first, what is the effect of the threat to secede? The brazen hypocrisy inherent in the threat is a shameful regret. What makes it legitimate for South-West to threaten secession while any other part of the country, especially t ...

Been reading 'Awo: the Autobiography of Chief Obafemi Awolowo'. Expectedly, a recurring theme is his relationship with Zik of Africa, Nnamdi Azikiwe. As far as emotions go, Awo's writing reeks of respect and scorn with respect to ZIk: respect for his intellectual prowess and ability to arouse nationalist sentiment in the country, scorn for his politics and methods, including deploying tribal sentiments in political maneuvers. I found that quite intriguing -nationalist and tribal in the same one person! I will need to read 'Zik' soon because both books were written around independence, while the two great men were still very much in the game.

Intrigues, Acrimony At UNIZIK Over Next Vice Chancellor By Sahara Reporters, New York A palpable tension has gripped the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka in Anambra State as the institution has entered the final stage of a highly politicized process to choose a new Vice Chancellor. Named for Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, the most revered figure in the struggle for Nigeria’s independence, the university’s search for a new leader originally attracted more than 30 candidates, according to several sources who spoke to SaharaReporters. They added that partisan politics, religion and state of origin have become factors in the process, with most of the candidates lining up political and financial support from various politicians. The university’s current Vice Chancellor, Professor B.C. Egboka, is due to step down on June 3, after serving a five-year term and an extra year in an acting capacity. One reason for the turmoil at the institution, which is called UNIZIK, is that a total of 34 professors initially indicated ...
Remember fellow africans! Only the best is good enough for africa!~Nnamdi Azikiwe (Zik of Africa)
We need more of the sort of leadership our leaders of old provided. They were not saints but they put the people's interests before their individual and family's interests. We had the examples of the man in this story, Nigeria first Prime Minister, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, the Sage, Obafemi Awolowo and the great Nnamdi Azikiwe and others. We can collectively work to restore the old order.
Here is a brain teazer: If u get the answer right I'll give u a gift.. Dr.Nnamdi Azikiwe, Alh. Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa nd other great Heros fought for our independence, Late Nelson Mandela fought for freedom nd equality, the Nigeria Army fought for the unity of this country, the Nigerian police are fighting crimes, our great principal of VUC. Mr Olorundare, nd other staff tht srvd in the schl e.g Coach, Mr Adama Sunday etc.nd those srving now, struggld and are still strugling to impact knowledge, doctors in hospitals are fightin to save lives.. now to you, what are u fighting for?

Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe from NPP.you are always in my heart...(if only they can come back again.,chai!..what a world)
This woman surely cannot continue to represent the wonderful women this great country has been blessed with, intellectually, morally and otherwise who produced great men like Nnamdi Azikiwe, Tafawa Balewa, Chief Obafemi Awolowo and Ahmadu Bello. A woman who is not fit to be a lesson teacher to any child of this nation. Now is the time and now is the time to get them out the Villa come 2015 so that great sons and daughters can once again live our country proud. God bless Nigeria!
The Nigeria of Sir Ahmadu Bello and Nnamdi Azikiwe has been desecrated by our Leaders, G.E.J is doing his part too
During the pre- and immediate post-independence politics, while Nnamdi Azikiwe was struggling to create a new united nation called Nigeria and Obafemi Awolowo was struggling to advance his people into a modern era, Ahmadu Bello had the opposite preoccupation. With the support of the British and having achieved a preserved status, the North under Ahmadu Bello proceeded to adopt policies that continue to hunt the Northern region of Nigeria. One of the concomitants of preserved status and obsession with religion was the exclusion of Christian missionaries in the North. Since missions were accompanied by schools and hospitals, they resulted in the emergence of educational opportunities and Western lifestyle in the country’s South and in parts of the Middle Belt. In contrast, the Islamic North remained protected from the influences of Western modernity, and this explains in part why the far North areas of Nigeria are still among the poorest and least developed regions in Africa. Reservation about western edu ...

There are names of notable Nigerian leaders who contributed in bringing the nation down to its knees in one way or the other. And my question is; who among them did the worst damage to Nigeria? Nnamdi Azikiwe. Major-General Johnson Aguiyi-Ironsi. General Yakubu Gowon. General Murtala Mohammed. Shehu Shagari. Major-General Muhammadu Buhari. General Ibrahim Babangida. Ernest Shonekan. General Sani Abacha. General Abdulsalami Abubakar. Olusegun Obasanjo. Umaru Musa Yar'Adua. Goodluck Jonathan.
The Rt. Hon. Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Owelle-Osowa-anya of Onitsha, and Zik of Africa was born on November 16, 1904 in Zungeru, Niger State into the family of Obededom Chukwuemeka Azikiwe and Racheal Chinwe Azikiwe. His father was a Government worker, a clerk, and his mother was a trader. He attended various schools in Nigeria, including CMS Central School, Onitsha (1911); Methodist Boys High School, Lagos (1915-18); Hope Waddell Institute, Calabar (1920-21). He was also a pupil teacher at St. Jude’s CMS Central School, Orafite, and CMS Central School, Onitsha (1919). He was a third class clerk with the Treasury Department, Lagos (1921). Residing all over Nigeria enabled him know how to speak the three main languages in Nigeria, Igbo, his mother tongue,Hausa, and Yoruba. After an unsuccessful attempt to stow away to America in 1924, his father saved some money, and gave him for his journey to America. He left for the United States in the late 20s, as he put it, "in search of a Golden Fleece." While in the US ...
Funny people, so by your zone giving the president support, you can win the presidential election for him? I am yet to see a politician who plays mature politics based on objectivity and conviction. The country has not moved forward the way it should and we are saying something is wrong with the PDP but you people are bring sentimental. Read the story and bring out substance, there is none. Thank God the zone produced illustrious sons and daughters like Nnamdi Azikiwe, Dim Ojukwu, Ebitu Ukiwe, and the officer and gentleman Ndubuisi Kanu and not to forget the pan Nigerian philanthropist Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha.
Dalhatu Bashir from Jigawa State noted that late Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, an Igbo man was born in Zungeru in (northern Nigeria), grew up in (Igboland) but went ahead to win election in the heart of (Yorubaland). Dalhatu Bashir, accurately made mentioned of Igboland, and Yorubaland but curiously called Hausa/Fulaniland Northern Nigeria. That's the state of mind of a colonialist.

Nnamdi Azikwe hall has dealt the deformed Nigerians students' image a more deadly blow by organizing a campaign/ "party members gathering" event for the APC. Or how would you explain the flooding of the venue of a supposed intellectual gathering by banner carrying party members (from the town) and intending contestants who were around to woo and pay obeisance to their National Leaders and their retinue of trumpet blowers whose minimum wage is N500. Next time, the organizers should do posters stating that Zik hall's Esau wants to sell its birthright for APC's porridge. It is their problem if you are sympathetic with any political party, but we should be agitated if they take your offerings beyond the gates of the mosque! Lets's see how far the 4.7 million naira or thereabout will go in redeeming them from this presumed curse of thoughtlessness.

Nigeria’s Presidency-Whose Turn, Whose Tribe? Since independence in October,1960, thirteen men have ruled the country either as military Heads of State or as civilian Presidents, a trip into the blogosphere will inundate you with information about these men, such as their names, pictures, political party and even a number of personal bits and tips about these men. In a Nation divided into two major religious groups, Christian and Muslim and about three hundred and seventy one tribes, issues of educational standing and pedigree, political party and ideology, plays the least role in selection and transition to power of these men. Most time family affiliation, tribe, religion and even more trivial factors like the tribe of the preceding president has more to do with the election and appointment of these men into the revered role of the leader of the most populous black nation. Nnamdi Azikiwe became the first indigenous governor general at independence. The country was divided into three regions; east, west ...
Zik Was Unequalled Patriot – Buhari Former Head of State, General Mohammadu Buhari, yesterday in Ibadan, Oyo State capital, eulogised late Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, describing him as a true Nigerian with great vision for the country. “Azikiwe was the most out-spoken and internationally recognised Nigerian nationalist. He was a true Nigerian and his vision extended beyond Nigeria or West Africa. He dreamt of continental union, similar to what Europe is trying to do now. He deserves all the honour and accolades we can heap on him albeit posthumously,” Buhari declared at the 50th anniversary lecture of Nnamdi Azikiwe Hall, University of Ibadan, where he was the chairman. The lecture, which had as theme, “Youth and the future of Nigerian Politics”, was delivered by former Minister of Agriculture, Dr. Shettima Mustafa. The former head of state lauded Azikiwe for his contribution to the development of Nigeria, revealing that he had known the late former president since his school days. According to the one- ...

Seven former Nigerian Presidents and Heads of State yesterday received Centenary Anniversary Celebration awards from President Goodluck Jonathan at the Banquet Hall of the State House, Abuja. They included former President Olusegun Obasanjo, General Yakubu Gowon, Alhaji Shehu Shagari, General Muhammadu Buhari, General Ibrahim Babangida, Chief Ernest Shonekan and General Abdusalami Abubakar. The past leaders received awards for outstanding promoters of unity, patriotism and National Development. But not all the 100 persons scheduled to receive the award came or sent representatives to receive the awards on their behalf.

Work to begin on 2nd Niger bridge soon – Jonathan President Goodluck Jonathan pledged on Saturday that work would start on the second Niger Bridge not later than March 17, 2014 when Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State is due to leave office. This, he said, is to honour Obi for the passion he has shown for the execution of the project. The President spoke during a courtesy visit to the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Alfred Achebe at his Ime Obi palace in Onitsha. The president who said he was on the way from the PDP rally in Owerri described Anambra State and its people as very lucky to have Peter Obi as their governor. He said that in an era when some other governors are owing banks and raising bonds, Obi remains an exception. He said that Obi would remain a member of the Presidential Economic Management Team even after ceasing to be governor. Igwe Achebe thanked the President for what he has done for the state and noted in particular, the ongoing work on the mausoleum of Nigeria’s first president, Dr. Nnamdi A ...

Rather than fully maximise the country's potential for mutually assured prosperity,a privileged few has hoodwinked the Nigerian peoples.The result is what we have today;a country exhibiting all the characteristics of a failed state,the serial denial of government officials notwithstanding.Echoing Achebe,the problem of Nigeria is the ruling elite and the failure of leadership.There is nothing wrong with the Nigerian land or climate or water or air or anything therein but the unwillingless or inability of its leaders to rise to the challenge of nation building.Unarguably,those who started the Nigerian projects,the likes of Sir Ahmadu Bello,Nnamdi Azikiwe,Chief Obafemi Awolowo and others had good intentions before they were hijacked by rogues and rascals donning the garb of leaders.
Africa Cannot Defeat Onslaught Of Imperialism Without Pan-Africanism Pan African Research Institute by Dr. Motsoko Pheko Mr Chairman and distinguished delegates to this important 8th Pan African Congress, let me begin by asking the following questions: Where would Africa be today, if there had never been the 5th Pan African Congress in Manchester in 1945? What would have happened to Africa if the Organisation of African Unity was never formed on 25 May 1963? What would be the situation in Africa today, especially in African countries such as Angola, Mozambique, Namibia, Zimbabwe and apartheid colonial South Africa if there was never the OAU Liberation Committee to assist the liberation movements in these territories such as the Pan Africanist Congress of Azania, African National Congress, MPLA, FRELIMO, SWAPO,ZANU and ZAPU? How would the African liberation struggle against colonialism have been, if in 1957 Ghana’s Kwame Nkrumah established diplomatic relations with apartheid colonial South Africa instea ...

Tunde Leye: The turnkey generation Posted by Assistant Editor opeds by Tunde Leye However, as it happened with the independence struggler generation they forcefully took power from, these men are aging, and with age, they are losing grip and power. It isn’t happening in one fell swoop, but the signs are there. And it is why this is a critical period. Make no mistake, there are always critical points in the history of any nation. It is usually difficult to predict these times before they happen, but after the fact, they become abundantly clear. For example, no one could predict the Arab Spring, but in retrospect, much analysis has been done to show that it was something that was bound to happen. The earliest Nigerian actor in the independence struggle as far I can remember was Herbert MacAulay, grandson of The Reverend Samuel Ajayi Crowther. However, he died at 82 in 1946, before independence materialized. At his death, the struggle had been taken up by a group of men in their late twenties and thirties. ...
LECTURE A onetime Minister in the first republic Dr. Yusuf Maitama Sule has called on Nigerian leaders to champion the cause of unity; peace and stability to enable the country continue to remain a single entity. Dr. Yusuf Maitama Sule who is also the Danmasanin Kano was speaking as a guest speaker at the second annual public lecture with a theme Nigeria’s centenary Euphoria a catalyst for united Nigeria organized by Bauchi Radio Corporation BRC. He said bracing up had become imperative if Nigerian leaders want the country to continue to take the lead in the continent. The Elder statesman advised the leaders to borrow a leave from people like Sir, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Sarduna Sokoto Ahmadu Bello, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, and Chief Obafemi Awoolowo who struggled for a united independent Nigeria. Dr. Yusuf Maitama Sule said this would also enable the country regain its image among the world communities and that of its citizens. In a welcome address, the Managing Director BRC Dr. Ahmad Mohammad Abdullahi com ...

Saint Sanusi Removal And The Rest Of Us Nigerians are funny people and It seems we suffer from selective amnesia Now I know and today's suspension of SLS validated that fact Well, the competence of Sanusi is never in doubt, he was a through-bred professional who performed creditably well in the discharge of his duties. To be fair to Sanusi, he managed the bank crises well and to his credit, no distressed bank went under the roof However, a man of Sanusi's standing is meant to be above board and not be found playing politics with everything and that is where Sanusi lost it I find it disturbing that some group of Nigerians are now dressing Sanusi as a saint and I just read some where that Gej sacked a man who was fighting corruption I had to scratch my head very well to be sure I'm not dreaming or perhaps my eyes were deceiving me. Since Sanusi is now a saint and anti corruption czar, I think It is is Imperative we exhumed the past of this new saint that some mischievous Nigerians are spreading the s ...

The Humble Recognition of the Initiator of this great forum, and all OLD BOYS AND GIRLS of our OCSS! I had pointed out earlier last week that this forum need be managed and controlled in a way that reflect its core purpose and good orderliness. One way of managing it may be by moderating the forum, that will create or lead to more interactions. Its important to let out 'Topics' which bother on the development of OCSS, as well as what we may be required to do. One way of controlling it also, may be by creating a bug report section while keeping the post mod approvable, that way, we can keep strictly to the issues related content. We as a people must be willing to tolerate each other. This forum is OUR FACE to the public and we must guide it concernciously. We should not come out here to display affray, intead, let every man use his wisdom and knowledge to better OCSS. There's so much to do. There'll be time to speak a lot of good english, and time to mend our broken fences in OCSS. Bring what've been bles ...
Winston Churchill, once said “Study history, study history. In history lies all the secrets of statecraft”. Herbert MacAulay, a Yoruba was the first nationalist who fought British imperialism for which he was jailed twice. As far back as 1908, before Nigeria was created, he started the struggle to expose European corruption and exploitation and freedom for Yoruba people well before Lugard’s arrival to amalgamate Yorubaland with their neigbours and called them Nigerians. Herbert MacAulay formed the first Nigerian political party on June 24, 1923, known as the Nigerian National Democratic Party (NNDP). He was popular with the Yoruba masses such that he won all the seats in the popular elections of 1923, 1928 and 1933 in Yorubaland. Subsequent nationalists like Obafemi Awolowo, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Aminu Kano, and Tafawa Balewa got inspiration from Macaulay to commendably achieve independence in 1960. Today, Yoruba leaders struggle to achieve self-governing and autonomous Yoruba Region within Nigeria or dec ...
PROFESSOR WILLIAM LEO HANSBERRY Hansberry, who attended Harvard, was born in the late 19th century in Mississippi in the city of Alcorn. DuBois was the first African-American graduate with a history degree at Harvard; Carter G. Woodson was the second; Charles Harris Wesley was the third; and Hansberry should have been the fourth, but Hansberry's focus was the ancient Nile Valley and ancient Ethiopia, so Harvard refused to give him his doctorate. Around 1923 he organized a major symposium on ancient African history at Howard, where He taught for 40 years. It would be like the ASCAC (Association for the Study of Classical African Civilizations) conferences today, but the very first. Hansberry's own works were never published, but compilations of his work were edited by Joseph E. Harris and published as books. Hansberry's niece, Loraine Hansberry, wrote "Raisin in the Sun", and one of Hansberry's former students, Nnamdi Azikiwe, went on to be the first president of Nigeria. Azikiwe named a college in Nigeria ...
Since Dr. Alex Ekwueme and Prof. Ben Nwabueze have declined to lead other Igbo delegates to the conference, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezife shoulder the responsibility. He can lead the Igbo delegation to the conference. He is tested and trusted. But i want to suggest that all the Igbo representatives to the conference should swear an oath that they will advocate for Ndigbo with the last drop of their blood. The oath shall be administered by Cardinal Francis Arinze in a high mass at the Holy Ghost Cathedral Enugu.because any act of compromising the Igbo's core demands,as Ndigbo remain the most short changed tribe in the federation, will be vehemently resisted.therefore the delegates should search their conscience before embarking on this historic assignment.any saboteur will be discovered. President Jonathan is sincere.he actually wants to restructure nigeria for good.unlike the man who was a jester. My final advice to our people: Ndigbo, we must sacrifice individualism to advance mutual benefits in nigeria federa . ...

A Leader is a distinguished individual that has the capacity & tenacity to influence people positively for the actualization of his/her vision and has the character that commands respect & followership. 1. A leader must be selfless and service-oriented because leadership is all about service to the people, the ability to serve and not to be served. 2. A leader must be courageous & passionate about his vision which gives him/her the drive to go an extra mile. 3. A leader must be visionary, a leader without a vision is no leader but follower. 4. A leader must be self discipline & have integrity which commands respect & followership. 5. A leader must be a good listener & a good communicator which enables him/her to motivate & inspire people for the pursuit of his/her vision. True leadership is the capacity to influence others through inspiration, motivated by passion, generated by a vision, produced by a conviction and ignited by a purpose. The world, Africa and Nigeria needs leaders that has the determinati ...
Today is social justice day. But the right question for our politicians is 'Has there been any social justice in this country?' how can it be when public fund is been embezzled by few politicians, no good roads, poor healthcare, no water supply, bad education system and continuing strick because of no payment of staff. where is social justice when people are dying every day because of poverty and the rich are sending their children to schools in abroad, save money meant for the masses for their great grant children unborn? when the national anthem of the country is not obeyed any more. There is no peace and unity any more. Service to Nigeria is now based on personal interest. Religious crisis and discrimination is a daily occurrence proudly sponsored by politicians. Do we call this social justice? Even in the judiciary the truth is denied and forsaken just to gain favor. There is no more free and fair election. Where are the days of nigerian nationalists and patriotists like Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Dr. Nn ...
LET'S TALK NIGERIA.CAN YOU TELL US OF THE NIGERIA IN YOUR DREAM Someone once said “what differentiate the “Third World” from the other worlds is not skin color or location. It is neither because the later have better brain cells, it is a matter of orientation (what we believe and what we do with what we believe).” What ever happens in the human world comes from the thought of a man. Nations are built on it.territories and empires are first built in the mind. Success has a lot to do with how best we are able to create it in the quietness of our mind a mental model of our world and it is called dream. Every great personality, organization or nation we see today are products of a dream of "one man" and in some rare cases a group. Christopher Columbus had a dream and Martin Luther redefined that dream, Nelson Mandela had a dream. Bill Gates had a dream. Oprah Winfrey had a dream. Aliko Dangote had a dream, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Tafawa Balewa, Obafemi Awolowo all had a dream for Nigeria. The question is, wh ...
Chief Nnamdi Azikiwe(zik of Africa)in his africa political thought long ago said that without the youth society will likely to break down...he therefore describe the youth as rivers and the old men and women as lake.he said the rivers flow more than the lake and and the lake he described as parmanent liquid.he therefore argued that for any society to develop in growth and liberty, the youth must play a prominent roles in the polity of the society in question.implication of his africa political thought on youth is that,The youth ar the leaders of 2morrow.the question is.how many nigeria youth if not all ar being elected as governors,senators,house of Rep members, president etc?

Can Igbo Man rule Nigeria Again? Written by Abubakar Mamman Ngulde on May 19, 2013 Nigeria is a multi cultural society made up of over 300 ethnic groups spread across the entire landmass. The Igbo people constitute the third main ethic groupings and are found mainly in the south eastern part of Nigeria. They constitute about 18% of the Nigerian population which amounts to about 30 million people according to a recent estimate (CIA 2012 World Factbook). The Igbo unlike the other two major ethnic groupings in Nigeria have traditionally been loosely fragmented politically. There had never been any centralized system of government but each settlement had always existed largely independent of those surrounding it in small units constituted mainly of lineages, clans and villages. There were variations in culture such as dialects, attire, art styles and religious practices amongst such villages and this is still noticed even today. The Igbo are virtually the most popular set of Nigerians and perhaps the most tra ...

Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, yesterday suffered a complete power blackout that lasted for more than one hour. This was the climax of intermittent electricity power supply the airport has experienced this past week. A source at the airport told Vanguard that the airport has been experiencing epileptic power supply for more than a week and efforts are been made to restore normal power supply through the airport stand-by generators that have been overworked. It will be recalled that MMIA has experienced similar power outages in the past. On one occasion, a major tragedy was averted when a 45-minute power outage left many people trapped in lifts with some of them gasping for breath. That incident happened at about 12.30 p.m. when many airport users were in the lifts of the six-storey building, leading to chaos and panic. Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, has also experienced similar power outages. The Power Holding Company of Nigeria, PHCN, has been unable to maintain steady elect ...

THE CHIMDI GIDEON STORY. 2 There was a part of my life I was very silent about. A part of me I did not say a word on. People suspected, but they never really knew for sure. I did everything I could possibly do to appease or make atonement or conceal it. I was not a graduate. Yes I had been to the university and was supposedly studying law. But I did not get awarded that degree. This in itself, this revelation, is a long story. I was sixteen years old in my form six in the secondary school. I had big lofty dreams. I wanted to be a lawyer. God had blessed me with sharp wit, quick brains and a deep mind. I beat all my classmates and excelled academically. I was going to be the attorney general of Nigeria someday. Where else could I put all these talents to use other than in a court of law? With this kind of ambition at an age so young, I marvel at how I got myself in the academic mess in the university and said nothing about it for six years. Nnamdi Azikiwe University was known for spilling students out in r ...

Centenary celebration: Nigerians founded modern Nigeria, not Britain —Unionist …says Nigeria existed before amalgamation The planned centenary celebration of Nigeria’s “nationhood” has continued to elicit mixed reactions from Nigerians and groups. Proponents of the celebration hinge their argument on the 1914 amalgamation of the Southern and Northern Protectorates by the Lord Lugard led-colonial administration in Nigeria, while some of the opponents argue that Nigeria existed before the amalgamation. Still, others insist Nigeria’s nationhood truly began in 1960. Follow the debate.
