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. I am sure Nnamdi Azikiwe himself is somewhere in heaven or *** holding an emergency meeting on their case, of course, for using his name in your advanced fee fraud ...
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- ...
Independence (1960) On 1 October 1960, Nigeria gained its independence from the United Kingdom. Nigeria's government was a coalition of conservative parties: the Nigerian People's Congress (NPC), a party dominated by Northerners and those of the Islamic faith; and the Igbo and Christian-dominated National Council of Nigeria and the Cameroons (NCNC) led by Nnamdi Azikiwe , who became Nigeria's maiden Governor-General in 1960. Forming the opposition was the comparatively liberal Action Group (AG), which was largely dominated by the Yoruba and led by Obafemi Awolowo.[29] The cultural and political differences among Nigeria's dominant ethnic groups: the Hausa ('Northerners'), Igbo ('Easterners') and Yoruba ('Westerners'), were sharp. An imbalance was created in the polity by the result of the 1961 plebiscite. Southern Cameroon opted to join the Republic of Cameroon while northern Cameroon chose to remain in Nigeria. The northern part of the country was now far larger than the southern part. The nation parted ...

A decade ago on Oct. 14, 1999, Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere passed away in his East African nation of Tanzania. Nyerere was one of the leading political figures to emerge during the post-World War II era of anti-colonial and anti-imperialist struggles that swept through Africa, Asia and Latin America. Nyerere was born in Butiama near Lake Victoria on April 13, 1922. Trained as a schoolteacher, he became involved in the independence movement during the 1950s and later headed the Tanzania African National Union, which transformed into the Chama Cha Mapenduzi (CCM) in the late 1970s. He was the contemporary of such other liberation movement leaders as Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Sekou Toure of Guinea, Gamal Abdel Nassar of Egypt, Nnamdi Azikiwe of Nigeria, Patrice Lumumba of Congo, Jomo Kenyatta of Kenya, Amilcar Cabral of Guinea-Bissau, Eduardo Monlande of Mozambique, Kenneth Kuanda of Zambia, among many others. Germany initially colonized Tanganyika during the late 19th century and renamed it German East A ...

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 ...

Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe nva Lied wen he said dt Many are Schooled bt Few are Educated.
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 ...

Did you know that; Over the years, the Presbyterian Church of Nigeria has been involved in the education sub-sector through the numerous primary and post-primary schools established and run by Parishes, Presbyteries and Synods. It is interesting to note that in 1895, the Presbyterian Church founded one of the foremost educational institutions in Nigeria - the Hope Waddell Training Institution, Calabar. The institution has since been in the fore-front of producing the educated elites of this country, the number of which includes such names as the first President of Nigeria, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, the first Governor of Eastern Nigeria, Dr. Akanu Ibiam, Sir Dennis Osadebey, Prof. Eni Njoku, Elder Chief Dr. Okoi Arikpo, Chief Margaret Ekpo, Alvan Ikoku, to mention just a few. Further to its commitment to the education sub-sector, the Church operates two degree-awarding Theological Institutions, namely, Hugh Goldie Lay Theological Training Institution, Arochukwu, Abia State (founded in 1918 and affiliated to Abia ...
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.

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.

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 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.

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?

We,his erstwhile students, most of whom are now professors love him dearly ,but God loves him more.If this great physician did not and could not heal himself,then it is a serious lesson for all mortals---this life is a mere shadow and stage where we poor players only play our part and then move on.Life ,indeed, is like a tale told by an *** full of sound and fury, signifying nothing .

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. BY VICTOR AHIUMA-YOUNG One of the opponents of the amalgamation centenary celebration being organized by the Federal Government is the General Secretary of the National Union of Textile, Garment and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria, NUTGTWN, and Vice-President of Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, Comrade Issa Aremu.

Exactly 53 years today, Nigeria gained independence from Britain and thereby ending 46 years of colonial rule. Nigeria was born on January 1, 1914, following the amalgamation of the then Southern and Northern Protectorates by Lord Fredrick Lugard. The country owes its independence to the struggles of nationalists like Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Alhaji Ahmadu Bello and others, who were in the forefront of the clamour for the involvement of Nigerians in the affairs of their country. Several conferences were held. The late Chief Anthony Enahoro moved the motion for Nigerian’s independence on the floor of the House of Representatives. Though he had proposed independence for Nigeria in 1959, the Northern members of the House were opposed to the motion on the grounds that the North was not ready. The clause, stipulating a date for independence was later substituted with another clause: “As soon as possible.” Eventually, the country gained independence from colonial rule on October 1, 1960 ...

SPEAKING AT THE NATIONAL YOUTH CONFERENCE ON THE ROAD TO 2015 GENERAL ELECTIOS TODAY IN ABUJA In my words, the key is increased youth participation. If the young people mean to be relevant in the polity, we need to actively participate in the different political parties. The youths should stop waiting for the elder people to step down for them or make chances for them. The youth should get to the stage and compete with the elders because we are favoured with our high numerical strenght. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Awolowo, Ahmadu Bello and all those that freed Nigeria from the hands of the colonial masters were young people as at the time they took over power and ruled Nigeria. Their parents were alive but they moved ahead of their parents and took over the stage. It is in our hands. no one will step down for you or make a space for you.
NIGERIAN PAST AND PRESENT LEADERS FROM 1960 TILL PRESENT Sir A.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. Balewa entered the government 1952 as Minister of Works, and 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 six days after he was ousted from office Balewa was buried in Bauchi.The Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University in his honour. 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 five hundred naira currency note N500. ...
Africa and the economics of continued exploitation (III) In his book, ‘Looting Africa: The Economics of Exploitation’, aspects of which we have been reflecting on for the last two weeks, the South African political economist, Professor Patrick Bond, exposes the sheer intellectual laziness, mental lethargy, ideological bankruptcy and shameful hypocrisy of contemporary African leadership. Reading this book, it becomes obvious that unless there is a radical change in the nature and character of African leadership; the emergence of thinker-leaders who can break out of the underdevelopment-generating mould of intellectual dependency on western imperialism, the Continent’s presumed desire for positive transformation will remain a mirage. The current crop of African leaders certainly do not measure up to the high standard of mental rigour and independence of thought exhibited by the immediate post-independence leadership such as Kwame Nkrumah, Julius Nyerere, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Kenneth Kaunda, Sekou Toure, Ob ...

Prophet Ituen does not need much introduction because of his God’s given ability to predict events that always come to pass. His accuracy on predictions about people and events has made him a household name and a true prophet. It is on record that at the early stage of his ministries in 1995, he predicted that a former president of Nigeria will die before the middle of 1996, and this came to pass when Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe died in May 1996. Since then he had predicted many things that turned out to be true and there is nothing he predicted that has no ...

Riches and Glory: The Hallmark of New Birth Politicians Unfortunately, riches and glory have become the most-sought-after by the new generation (call it lost generation) of politicians in this part of the world. In our researches, we’ve found out that great people like: Obafemi Awolowo, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Nelson Mandela, Kwame Nkrumah, Costallo John, Arias Sanchez, Alexander the Great, Winston Churchill, Genghis Khan, Gandhi Indira, Abraham Lincoln et cet al were never self-seeking in their representation, but fought for emancipation, freedom, and the general welfare of their people. Nowadays, the mindset of politicians is tilting to the negative due to avaricious preoccupation and tendencies to garner political influences through ill-gotten wealth. Day by day you hear politicians threatening fire and brimstone just to be in power. And those already in power would rather die than relinquish their positions to other/better people. How sad!

Nnamdi Azikiwe: “Let us forget our differences….” Ahmadu Bello~ "No, let us understand our differences. I am a Muslim and a Northerner. You are a Christian, an Easterner. By understanding our differences, we can build unity in our country.”In 1948 Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa stated thus in the Legislative Council: “Since 1914 the British Government has been trying to make Nigeria into one country, but the Nigerian people themselves are historically different in their backgrounds, in their religious beliefs and customs and do not show themselves any sign of willingness to unite, Nigerian unity is only a British intention for the country.” Do you think we should forget our differences or understand them as a country?

THE URGENCY OF STATE POLICE by TOLA ADENIYI On Thursday November 2009, on the birthday of African icon Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe I canvassed for the immediate decentralisation of the Nigeria Police. I am repeating the call today by reproducing unedited the article I wrote on the subject in the Nigerian Compass of that date. I am not unaware that that there is going to be a National Dialogue. But the issue of Security is very critical and urgent. Whatever the outcome of the National Conference may turn out to be, we cannot wait to be consumed by the current rampaging insecurity in the land. Please read on. Let’s face it, unless something is done fast about the unbearable security situation in this country, we may wake up one day to discover that we have all been consumed by criminals. Or put it this way, Nigeria must do something before crimes and criminality consume the country. We simply can not continue like this.

But it's unofficial as deliberations are still on-going. Some departments held there meeting on Friday, others will follow suit by holding theirs on next week Monday. Students will know their fate before the end of the week. My advice to students is that they should please keep themselves prepared for any development.
Mary Slessor died and went to Heaven. St. Peter was giving her a tour of Heaven when she noticed that there were dozens of clocks on the wall. Each clock displayed a different time of day. When she asked St. Peter about the clocks, he replied, ''We have a clock for each person on earth and every time they tell a lie the hands move. The clock ticks off one second each time a lie is told.'' Special attention was given to two clocks. The clock belonging to Mother Teresa has never moved, indicating that she never told a lie. The clock for Nnamdi Azikiwe has only moved twice. He only told two lies in his life. Hillary asked ''Where is 0basanjo's clock?'' St. Peter replied, ''Jesus has it in his office... he's using it as a ceiling fan.'''

This was announced by the Assistant Inspector-General of Police, Zone 7 Command, covering the FCT, Niger and Kaduna states, Suleiman Abba, Yesterday. Abba said that the Police would use all means to put an end to hoodlums within his area jurisdiction. He assured that in spite of a notable reduction in crimes in 2013, this year would witness more rigorous strategies. Abba, however, did not specify that these strategies would include. He stated that such incidences as occurred in Kaduna on Monday, where four policemen were shot by unknown gunmen, would not be tolerated in 2014. The four allegedly killed when some unknown gunmen attacked a bullion van along the Nnamdi Azikiwe by-pass in Kaduna metropolis. Also Yesterday, the General Officer Commanding (GOC), 82 Division Enugu, Major-General Adebayo Olaniyi, called for nationwide synergy between security agencies in fighting crime.

For you to even name Nnamdi Azikiwe... no need.
Nnamdi Azikiwe "So who is the best Nigerian President ever?"
It's tru dat Obafemi Awolowo(wa), Tafa Balewa(zo) and Nnamdi Azikiwe(bia), were at the fore front of achieving Nigeria's independence, but it doesn't grant di people of these respective tribes a patent right to rule. We are NIGERIA not WAZOBIA!

INTRODUCTION "Do oxen go to college?", for me, best captures the imagery that would only begin to make sense midway through all this play of words and the drive to sustain your interest. Up to this point, it seems to be working ~ thankfully! Thankfully, I went to what our society acknowledges as "having gone to school" and spent the requisite four years at the (now prestigious) Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka. Unfortunately, tetiary-level education has grown to become a sine qua non to rise above being branded an illiterate. But what happened to the good ol' days when Standard Six citizens held plum jobs, wrote inspiring letters, and told pathetic stories of narrowly missing scholarships abroad? With their generation, this ever-dimishing scope for who was literate was not so! THE JOURNEY SO FAR So far, I've noticed ~ with utmost disdain ~ that even with the bar on literacy raised (and still rising), a rather ugly trend has crept in and swept through most tetiary institutions in Nigeria: with reckless aband ...
Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe is among that class. Don't know your school though
You may not know but Nigeria's first president was Benjamin Nnamdi Azikiwe in the year 1963. He died on May 11, 1996.
"Ahmadu Bello,Nnamdi Azikiwe&Obafemi Awolowo were greater than Nelson Mandela!!! The world just missed recognisin them!Lol"
I bring greetings to my brothers. I, on behalf of the Chairman of the Great Nnamdi Azikiwe Hall University of Ibadan, Abiose Sodiq Olajide and other executives want to use this medium to welcome every single Zikite (Past and Present) to this new year, 2014. It is an open secret that God himself is a Zikite and I am up-beat that there is another Zikhall in Heaven thus the confidence that this new year would be a fulfilling year. It is no longer news that the protracted ASUU strike was a stumbling block to the celebration of "Zik(even though we had an e-celebration), however I have the word and the assurance of the Hall Chairman nay other Executives that the celebration of Zikwould still hold. Academically, It is obvious to everyone that this semester would be a quick and short one, thus It is only advisable and wise that Greatest Zikites resume earnestly and get to work. "He who goes to the stream early, gets the purest of water." On a final note, I would love to say a big Happy Birthday to every Zikite bo ...

A very sad experience this afternoon at d Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport. I boarded a medview flight no VL 2104 to abja at 12noon. I checked in my bag with tag no VL242918. I got to abuja to discover to my chagrin dt d padlock I used in locking my bag has bn removed and replaced. I could barely recgnise my bag. It was d baggage tag dt saved m. There was no official on hand to report to. I left d airport without anybody checking my boarding pass. On getting home,I forced d lock open only to discover that some of my dresses hv bn removed. All attempt to reach medview with d telephone numbers on dia contact was in vain as d numbers were said not to be correct. I hereby warn unsuspecting travellers on any Nigerian airline to b vigilant.
The death of Dr. William Wilberforce Chuba Okadigbo came as a discourteous fright to me as a person, dieing at the age of 61, even though it was beyond the life span of an average Nigerian. Loosing a flamboyant academician, articulate orator, leader, great philosopher, and a colorful politician who came into limelight as an apostle of the Great Zik of Africa, Nigeria first president, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, is like loosing all your teeth that prevents you from getting a good taste of your food. Death has no mercy and does not discriminate. While you are alive, do what is best for your people. Touch someone with your talents, skills, and the blessings God gave you. Dr. William Wilberforce Chuba Okadigbo worked himself to the corridor of power during Shagari's administration as a political adviser to the President. His education background was a bedrock for his political philosophy with strong training at the University Blackenburg College of Technology in Germany, and a master degree in Philosophy from the Kar ...

Looking at him on the one naira coin, HERBERT SAMUEL HEELAS MACAULAY kinda looks like a white man to me. Or let me say his moustache and names kind of sound foreign to me. As a youngster, I always wondered why someone with such a 'strange and unNigerian' name will be glorified as a Nigerian hero. Well, now I know berra...lol! Did you know that Herbert MacAulay could have actually been Nigeria's first President, instead of Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe? Did I hear you say how? Did you know he was also a musician? Do you want to know Herbert MacAulay's last words on earth? His marital life? Read on... Forget his unmistakable moustache, Herbert MacAulay was a man of towering intelligence. In Nigeria of today where many men struggle to keep and cope with one job, Herbert MacAulay was a clerk, civil engineer, architect, surveyor, land inspector, journalist, musician, nationalist and politician. BIRTH AND EARLY DAYS This Nigerian legend was born on the 14th of November, 1864 in Lagos State. His parents, who married in 184 ...

As you part this simply world pls help me tell Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Ammadu Bello, and Awolowo. That the fundation they layed for this country has being distroyed by their selfish brothers. That the aim&objective of the country has being crosscarpet under religion and tribal sentiment. Tell FELA that all the sons he sang about Nigeria are still relevant" pls don't forget to tell Micheal Jackson that Psquare have change triler to personality. RIPP Baba Lar.' we 'll forever remember You.
Welcome once more to the with Bevyn, its time to cast a retrospective look at fallen heroes. Martin Luther King jnr, John Fitzgerald Kennedy fell while fighting for equal rights amongst a racially discriminating nation. Herbert MacAulay, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Alvan Ikoku to mention but a few fell after seeing the Nigerian dream brought to life. Enebeli Elebuwa, Justice Esiri, etc fell after pioneering the Nigerian movie industry. Papa Idahosa, Bishop Anayo Ilupotaife, fell while doing God's work. Michael Jackson, James Brown, Whitney Houston, Aliyah, Paul Walker, Charlie Chaplin fell while propagating their various parts in the entertainment industry. What will you be remembered for when u finally fall?
Nigeria is now the 144 most corrupt nation on earth.This sordid rating does not perturb the National Assembly - the Epicenter of Nigerian's woes. To butress my claim, tell me in any Western capitals or cities you could find a single asset that belonged to Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Sarduana of Sokoto, Dr. Francis Akanu Ibiam, Sir Kashim Ibrahim, S.L. Akintola, Dr. M.I. Okpara, Major General J.T.U Aguiyi Ironsi, Alhaji Aminu Kano and other authentic and real Nigerians. In contrast, take a hard look at the assets of the so-called Generals, or should I call them the military coup plotters, otherwisw known as Heads of States, that stole the nation to nakedness and amassed unbelievable amount of public funds and still stealing. Pick up a Bible or Quran and ask members of the National Assembly to swear if they don't have assets overseas. Nigeria shall be better when the people carries civil disobedience to sack every member of the National Assembly and block the Federal Secretariat to kick out e ...
The great heroes of Africa, men who shook the continent and left their footprints on the sands of time, Africans of the 20th century, like Julius Nyerere of Tanzania, Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Nnamdi Azikiwe of Nigeria, and Nelson Mandela of South Africa, who have slowly died out, leaving a huge vacuum yet to be filled by us, Africans of the 21st century. Does this mean we are no longer capable of greatness? Are we never again going to raise men and women who will shake the world and lead Africa to greatness through their examplery decisions and actions in the face of the multitude of challenges facing our continent today? If we must transform Africa, we must step into the shoes of past heroes, and carry Africa on, into the promised land our patriachs saw but could not enter, a promised land of peace and progress, development and opportunities, a land of equity and brotherly love, where all Africans would be proud to say we are Africans.
NIGERIA MUST BE GREAT(1914-2014) No body would contest, for example that Nigerians of the First Republic possessed more sense brotherhood & general attitudinal decorum that we do today.This was because the likes of Chief Obafemi Awolowo,Sir Michael Okpara, Sir Ahmadu Bello, the Sardauna of Sokoto and Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe were all inclined to putting the interests of their people first before anything else. these were leaders whose display of honesty, incorruptibility, trustworthiness, respectability, modesty, reliability, courage, competence, frankness, fearlessness & above all, fear of God did not leave even the Colonial Masters in doubt about their sincerity of purpose & commitment to the service of their people. I use this juncture medium therefore to draw the attention of fellow Nigerians to the bitter truth that the tendency of our leaders to dedicate all their attention to physical development alone over the years, disregarging efforts at attitudinal change has left us with wider roads, but narrower
African god! Your wind of honor is once more blowing across the globe. Your light of equity and justice is still breaking the shackles of oppression all over the world. On Thursday December 5, 2013 those who know little about you announced that the African star is gone, but you look at them and smiled. Madiba, shall I tell them that your duty to mankind started long before July 18, 1918? Like our good friend Job stated in his autobiography, “I have been a widow’s guide from my mother’s womb (Job 31vs 18)” your light of justice shines on!!! Though the lesser part of you undergoes transformation, your higher self remain the same. Least I forget, I heard Julius Nyerere saying that African leaders will meet on 15th December 2013, at Qunu to discuss Africa’s future etc, to be present are Mansa Musa, Jomo Kenyata, Ajuma Odinga Odinga, Kwame Nkrumah,Nnamdi Azikiwe, Patrice Lumumba, Joshua Nyongolo Nkomo, Akwaeke Nwafo Orizu, Herbert MacAulay, Sundiata, Iheonukara Okpara, Stephen Biko, Akanu Ibiam, Ob . ...
At a time like this when every issue is twisted and given ethnic or religious hue, thereby dividing Nigerians and raising tensions in the land, one could only wish that many Nigerians were like one man who I consider as the greatest Nigerian that has ever lived. Once a Nigerian is told to mention who his or her greatest Nigerian is, the name that usually pops up is one of the three founding fathers: Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, former Premier of Eastern Nigeria and first President of Nigeria; Sir Ahmadu Bello, former Premier of Northern Nigeria; and Chief Obafemi Awolowo, former Premier of Western Nigeria. These three men were seen as the three pillars that held Nigeria together. They achieved a lot, especially for their regions, and have remained evergreen in the minds of many Nigerians. Because of the achievements they recorded in their regions, they are seen as demi-gods by their people, and almost worshipped. It is seen as sacrilegious to say any negative thing about them, no matter how true such a statement i ...
Dayo Williams wrote: Nigeria has never produced a real unifying leader. Even with our close to a century period of 'nationhood'. South Africa, a far smaller nation has produced one...And he'll forever remain the father of the rainbow nation.. Now get it clear: Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Sadaurna of Sokoto, Ojukwu etc were ethnic leaders/dealers... And what logic is that? We're not yet a nation
TO MANDELAgreatest African leader of our time, the cloud has covered around you. You single handedly and meritoriously gave Africa a new look. Your gaint strides and victorious works has proven itself. Oh!!! how dealth stings the one you Love most. You shall never be forgotten on those numerous paths you treaded upon. You shall forever be our hero in Africa. I pray your virtues fall on me and all willing young Africans to carry on the struggle. Please say me well to Martins Luther king, tell him dat his dream has come to pass through Obama, say me well also to mother Teresa, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, Gandhi, Nnamdi Azikiwe and other great leaders of the past. Adieu PA Nelson Mandela OF AFRICA.
RIP forever this time the great Madiba. Go and rest with Africa's greats: Kwame Nkrumah, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Steven Biko, Lucky Dube, Obafemi Awolowo, Wangari Mathai, Chinua Achebe, Fela and all the other great men and women who fought for the dignity of Africa and Africans. Another angel has gone forth to Heaven.
Awolowo, Zik, Others To Get Award The Managing Director, Micnet Concepts International, Mr. Mike Neboh, has said the level of educational growth in the country would not have been possible without the deliberate efforts of nationalists like the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Chinua Achebe, Chief Babatunde Fafunwa, Tai Solarin, among others. Thus in March next year, they will be given post-humous awards tagged Educational Icons Award. Neboh also said others still alive, including Prof. Grace Alele-Williams, Prof. Wole Soyinka, Prof. Jubril Aminu and the Minister of Power, Prof. Chinedu Nebo would also be honoured. “Although the education sector has passed through twists and turns in the last 53 years, the achievements of our heroes past, whose visions, programmes and actions laid the foundation for education in Nigeria and their remarkable achievements remain indelible to us. “Like the founding fathers, several other Nigerians have also made their marks in various fields and are widely ...

Kwane Nkrumah, who said in the fifties of twentieth century at the height of the struggle for independence from colonial rule in Africa that "seek ye first the Political kingdom and every other thing will be added unto you. In paraphrasing the bible Nkrumah was pointing out and emphasising the utmost importance of controlling of the political power to the socia-economic transformation process. History has it that the likes of Ahmadu Bello, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Obafemi Awolowo, Tafawa Belewa, Joseph Tarka and Aminu Kano, all began their political careers in their youthful ages. They founded the organizations which negotiated with colonial regime while they were youths and assuming leadership of this country while still in their forties. The point being made here is that Nigerian youths of this generation have a decisive historical task to undertake, one hinges around undertaking the transformation of our country, achieving our national liberation from the death grip of globalization and laying the foundation of ...

APC's Chairman sounds a note of warning."Anambra election debacle: It's time to end electoral impunity in Nigeria" - by: Chief Bisi Akande It is said that when bad things happen, it provides a chance for good people to make things better! The mess that has been made of the Anambra election by the same body saddled with ensuring that it is free and fair is indeed a bad thing. While the Anambra debacle, in which INEC apparently acted out a script written by the presidency and the PDP, represents a new low in the country's unenviable saga of electoral impropriety, it must now signal the death knell for electoral malfeasance and brigandage in Nigeria. Make no mistake about it: If something drastic but lawful is not done now to stop this electoral impunity, our country is ultimately heading for the precipice. This is not about crying wolf where none exists. The wolf is here and ready to pounce. Our challenge is to stop it before it is too late. As things stand,. we have a dangerous admixture of Power and Impun ...
The Mis-education of Nigeria - the loss of content and the dumbing down of everything sacred By Gbenga Badejo Every generation clings to a nostalgia of the past, refusing to let go of the umbilical cord that connects to the ‘good old days’. This is fair enough for each generation. Not so for the generation after them, many of who are repulsed by the constant glancing back and who may believe that advancement in technology, the Internet, the iPad, and 4G connections more than compensate for the loss of family values and a slower pace of living. In countries like China and India, this trade-off may be acceptable, however for Nigeria; it's a double whammy of losses. Our greatest problem is not just the loss of the good old days, but also the cataclysmic surrender of the future. Although, it is generally believed that corruption is the major slayer of everything good in Nigeria; the time bomb is the mis-education of our people, the celebration of mediocrity and the resulting casualness of our youth. These ...
"Educate the renascent African to be a man. Tell him that he had made definite contribution to history. Educate him to appreciate the fact that iron was discovered by Africans, that the conception of God was initiated by Africans, that Africa ruled the world from 765 to 713 B.C., that while Europe slumbered during the “dark ages”, a great civilization flourished on the banks of the Niger, extending from the salt mines of Therghazza in Morocco to lake Chad. Narrate to him the lore of Ethiopia, of Ghana or Songhai. Let him relish with the world that, while Oxford and Cambridge were in their inchoate stages, the University of Sankore, in Timbuktu, welcomed scholars and learned men from all over the Moslem world, as Sir Percy put it".

Enugu Plan Academicals Competition Enugu State commissioner for youth and sports, Honorable Chijioke Agu has disclosed that the government is planning on setting up an academicals competition, through which talented kids would be groomed to enact future glory for the state and country in the not too distant future. Agu disclosed as much while addressing participants at the 2013 Enugu State Football Association Annual General Assembly at Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu, in which he spoke on a number of issues affecting youth sports in the country. While using the recent glorious outing of the Golden Eaglets as a reference point, the commissioner noted that Enugu State and Nigeria as a whole stand to gain more in international sports if concerted efforts are directed towards discovering hidden talents and grooming them to limelight. “Let me commend the leadership of NFF for taking the bold step going back to the grassroots to discover talents. I make bold to say that it is this move that was greatly respons ...

Check out all the Federal Universities.You'll discover that almost all the workers at the upper echelon are indegenes.while those at lower echelons are also indigenes...the non indigenes are left to wallow in pain, as if they are not from this entity called Nigeria. Uniben is a good example. Intellectuals are the main peddlers of tribalism. I loathe them for that in its entirety. Study Uniben, you'll see that mostly Benins are the Professors, Doctors. While also at the SUG level, mayors, mayoresses are either Benins or Esans. One Big head promotes this sentiments. Yet, students are queit about it. Note: Not only in UNIBEN does such happens: It does happens in UNILAG, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Lagos State Poly. It left me wondering: are we truly Nigerians or dividers?
'Let us forget our differences and move on' - Late (Dr.) Nnamdi Azikiwe ' No. Let us understand our differences to be able to move on'- Late (Sir) Ahmadu Bello
•Assassination attempt reported almost 48 hours after incident Dele Ogbodo In a curious twist of fate, bound to generate more controversy, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Commissioner of Police (CP), Mr. Femi Ogunbayode, Monday confirmed that the Minister of Aviation, Ms. Stella Oduah, on Saturday, escaped an assassination attempt by unknown gunmen. However, the police said she was not in the vehicle at the time her Escalade SUV, with registration number FST 914 BL, was shot at about 10 pm. Oduah has been at the centre of a scandal surrounding the purchase of four bulletproof cars on her behalf by the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) and Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN). However, it was the purchase of two BMW armoured cars at the cost of N255 million by NCAA that has received the most condemnation and which triggered the calls for her sack. When the scandal broke last month, Oduah’s media aides had said the armoured cars were purchased for the protection of the minister, who th ...
Anambra poll: APC lists 8-point cancellation demand Written by Lanre Adewole - Lagos Monday, November 25, 2013 THE All Progressives Congress (APC) has given eight reasons for demanding outright cancellation of the inconclusive November 16 Anambra governorship election. A statement by its spokesperson, Alhaji Lai Mohammed in a statement in Lagos on Sunday said those reasons were weighty, compelling and substantial evidence for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to accede to its poll cancellation demand. ''Our party has provided incontrovertible and more than substantial evidence to show that what took place on Nov. 16th is a parody of election the party. ''What other evidence can be more substantial than the fact that INEC, in conducting the Nov. 16th election, failed to comply with the provisions of the Electoral Act? What other evidence can be more compelling than the INEC chairman's admission of compromise by a top official of the commission? If Jega's statement that the election fell ...

WHY CALABAR IS EAGLES' 'SHRINE'--Uzor Kalu. Former Abia State Governor, Orji Uzor Kalu sternly believes that Calabar is a no-go area-the cradle of Nigerian Soccer. ''Calabar hosted the first football competition in Nigeria-The beverly Cup in 1906. The first NFA Secretary, Efiom Okon till date remains the only man to have served the NFA as a chairman and a Secretary. The first player to captain Nigeria overseas was Etim Hensaw. The longest serving NFA scribe, Oyo Orok Oyo was also the first Nigerian member of the FIFA executive commitee. Paul Bassey was the first Nigerian Sports journalist in the CAF media commitee. Louis Orok Edet was the first and only Service Chief to head the NFA-in 1962. Nigeria's first President,Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe who played for Lagos Diamond in 1923, began his soccer career at the Hope Wadell Training Institute Calabar''.

The questions about the civil war are so many but there are few salient points wor The declaration of an Independent state by the Igbos in the face of the horrendous hate-driven murders against them clearly minimized the number of casualties that would have been recorded otherwise. In other words, if Biafra had not been declared, many more innocent Igbo lives would have been lost long before the war. Another issue is that the policy of starvation by Awolowo and Gowon that resulted in over 2 million children perishing of malnutrition was not an act of war, it was Genocide and until that singular issue is called by its name, true reconciliation will still be far. Gowon (and his Nigeria prays) has apologized, but that is not enough. The issue of giving Igbos 20 naira after the war (even if you had 20 million in the bank) and at the same instance executing the indigenization policy where majority shares of all multinationals were bought over by Nigerians (while the Igbos all had 20 naira in our pockets!) and ...
SCAMMER ISAAC JACOBS! .THANKS SALIKA Darling, I want to inform you that Anita is fine now, i was at the hospital and i saw that she was fine. The doctor told me that she is fit enough to make the trip to your country to come and see you. I told her how worried you were about her condition and she felt happy that you care so much about her. I told her what a great mother you will be for her. Darling, she will be very happy to celebrate her birthday with you. i hope you will get a nice Cake for her birthday. I have received itinerary of the booked flight to your country already, from the flight ticket i sent you, you can see that we will be arriving in your country on tuesday. Our daughter and i will be happy to see your lovely face at the airport. The Hospital management gave me a Bill of 2000 dollars, which to me was quite expensive.

Mokwugo Okoye, Nigerian Writer and Politician, 72 Published: September 26, 1998 SIGN IN TO E-MAIL PRINT Mokwugo Okoye, a leading figure in Nigeria's struggle for independence from Britain, died on Monday, Nigerian newspapers reported. He was 72. Mr. Okoye, who died in a hospital in Enugu, in eastern Nigeria, reportedly had respiratory problems and heart ailments. Mr. Okoye was a writer and politician in the movement that pushed Britain to renounce its hold on Nigeria in 1960. He was a close associate of the country's first President, Nnamdi Azikiwe. Four years ago, he returned briefly to the political stage alongside another independence-era figure, Anthony Enahoro, to form the Movement for National Reformation to fight continued military rule in Nigeria. But poor

It has become practicaly imperetive for the people of nigeria to look beyond relegion sentmentalism and build a better nigeria, let drop also the unnecessary relegion biggotry we've nurtured against ourselves this large years of unyielding Democracy, for the good yearnig and aspiration of a new Nigeria. In the sprit of togetherness Ahmadu Bello,Nnamdi Azikiwe,Awolowo were able to made it through standing the test of time, in the same sprit we can still make it again. Love U 9geria
Volume 10, Nov/ 23, 2013 The Kalu Leadership Series NEWSLETTER Anambra 2013: Aforetaste of 2015? If the purulent utterances by some of the candidates in the November 16 Anambra State Governorship election were anything to go by, then there is really a cause to fear for our democracy. The candidates of Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Labour Party (LP) in a joint Press Conference con-demned the conduct of the election, as well as its outcome, in its entirety. They alleged massive rigging, intimidation by security agents and manipulation by INEC, among other awry allegations. I meticulously listened to the actors and gladiators in the Anambra saga and concluded within myself that something ur-gent and drastic should be done to save our democracy from imminent peril. Al-most every speaker expressed outrage at the general conduct of the governorship election. Something like a corroboration of the allegations came from the Chairman of In-dependent National Electoral Commi ...
National News Monday, November, 25, 2013 1. Jang to Aliyu: You Are Number One Betrayer of the North The Chairman of the factional Nigeria Governors' Forum (NGF) and Plateau State Governor, Jonah Jang, has described Governor Aliyu Babangida of Niger State as the number one on the list of those people who have betrayed the Northern Region. The Niger State governor had, at the 25th anniversary of the enthronement of Alhaji Umaru Bahago as Emir of Minna at weekend, said the north was on the look out for a list of its elite who would be induced by the Goodluck Jonathan administration, so that it will tell the people of the region that these are the people that want to betray them. “We heard a rumour that some people have a list of 400 prominent northerners that they are going to settle and that they are sure if they settle the 400 persons, everything will be okay in 2015”, adding that the north had nothing to be afraid of in 2015 since election is a game of numbers.

Enugu Agog over Corpus Christi as Igbo Pastors Sensitizes for End-time Revival by Obinna Akukwe (profetobinna2 The city of Enugu was agog on Sunday 24th November 2013 while Catholic faithful were celebrating the feast of Corpus Christi-Christ the King. Catholic faithful left their different parishes on procession to Holy Ghost Cathedral, chanting, singing and proclaiming the Kingship of Jesus Christ. The Catholic adherents left their parishes including St Mary’s Catholic Church, Trans Ekulu, Christ the King Parish, GRA, Sacred Heart Parish, Uwani, St Paul’s Parish, Awkunanaw, St Bridget Abakpa, St Mary’s Uwani and St Theresa Ugbo Odogwu among hundreds of parishes and trekked towards Holy Ghost Cathedral in unprecedented jubilant mood and occasionally the Blessed Sacrament was showered with flowers and incensed while the faithful kneel in adoration. Enugu simply came to a halt. It was Corpus Christi like never before. Estimated two hundred thousand persons converged at Holy Ghost Cathedral to termina ...
IGBO BASHING AS A NIGERIAN HOBBY The recent series of rants by a former aviation minister against the Igbos is a very clear case in point; though he was not the first of his race to do that (Akintola in ’64, Abati in ’97 and Adelaja in 2006 are few examples) and I am sure he won’t be the last to do so until Birnam Wood comes to Dunsinane! When a northern politician visited Lagos in the late 1940s and was pelted by the Yoruba supporters of the Action Congress, he went back home and orchestrated a bizarre mass murder of the Igbos living in the north. A coup was carried out just before the war, by a few Igbo soldiers and a Yoruba man, where a few top politicians were killed, (the fact that this same coup was crushed by an Igbo man – General Aguiyi Ironsi is always conveniently forgotten) the resultant counter coup did not target Igbo politicians, it did not target top Igbo military officers and men alone, it was simply an opportunity to massacre Igbo civilian men, women and little children in all par ...

APC, New PDP Alliance • 2015: Presidency bribing northerners for support, says Aliyu Chuks Okocha and Ike abonyi Ahead of the scheduled meeting today between President Goodluck Jonathan and the seven Peoples Democratic Party governors who had walked out of the party’s convention on August 31, some political elders in the North have set up a committee in an effort to achieve a seamless defection of the governors to the opposition All Progressives Congress, I learnt. The suspension of Chief Olagunsoye Oyinlola from PDP is expected to be among the most important issues to be dealt with at the meeting. The committee of the northern elders is said to comprise eminent personalities, including former military president Ibrahim Babangida, former minister of finance, Alhaji Adamu Ciroma, and Nigeria’s former permanent representative at the United Nations, Alhaji Maitama Sule. The panel is to address the hitches in the long expected movement of the governors, also called G7 governors, to the opposition coalit ...

From Anambra Governorship Election with Tears, By Udo Jude Ilo Anambra State in Nigeria occupies a position of both historical and political importance. It produced the first (non-executive) President of Nigeria and a major force in Nigeria’s independence struggle in the person of Nnamdi Azikiwe. The Vice President under the 2nd Republic Chief Alex Ekwueme was also from Anambra State. It boasts of an array of distinguished Nigerians who have made their mark locally and internationally such as Chief Innocent Ifediaso Chukwuma who pioneered local production of automobiles in Nigeria. Belying this geographical enclave with less than desirable urban planning and infrastructure is also the biggest market in Africa which is found in Onitsha bordering the famous Niger River. Sadly, this great state has achieved unprecedented political infamy since the return to civilian rule in 1999. It created a new record in political god fatherism when a sitting governor was kidnapped and nearly forced to resign. It was the ...
Chinua Achebe told us that the problem with Nigeria is leadership. Leadership, both political and economic, is needed to grow a country. We have stubbornly accepted that the failings we experience on the path to now have been our failings. But the surprising thing is that we have survived and this survival has been a result of our transformation of compromise into an art form. If there is any contribution to democracy, it is the culture of compromise we have given birth to in Nigeria and nurtured. But democracy does have a culture and any deviation from it under any guise will only serve to undermine it. It is not enough for democracy to be just a paper thing, like the Constitution of the United States of America; or the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, both written; or like the unwritten constitution of the British. Theirs, the British, is the best example, the closest to us, of why democracy works there. For in spite of the fact that there is no document you point to, there is his . ...

IT IS WORKING AGAIN: BMT and Oyinlola embrace in public: There was mild drama on Thursday at the Nnamidi Azikwe Int'l Airport in Abuja, as the National Chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur and the suspended National Secretary of the Party, Prince Oyinlola put aside their political differences and openly embraced each other. It was gathered that the duo had met at the VIP Lounge of the Nnamdi Azikiwe Inte'l Airport ahead of their scheduled flights to their different destinations. An aide to Alhaji Tukur told the Nigerian Tribune that the duo had no option than to warm up to each other in a spontaneous embrace, which aides and airport officials applauded. According to the source, Oyinlola was the first to arrive at the VIP Lounge of the airport, while the PDP chairman was ushered in about 30 minutes after. “On arrival, the former governor of Osun State stood up to acknowledge Tukur’s presence, and a moment after, both sat in opposite direction at the Lounge as an atmosphere of discomfort hung in th ...

THE APGA LANDSLIDE VICTORY AND CLOUD OF INIQUITY By Clem Nworah. That the November 16th 2013 governorship election in Anambra State have entered a bleeding stalemate accompanied by blaze of protests and roiling cloudy dust of iniquity is no longer news. What has continued to gore the minds of the good people of Anambra State and indeed conscientious Nigerians is why the state Governor Mr Peter Obi has decided to hoist on the people another illegitimate government sired in the most ignoble rigged elections in the annals of Nigerian history. Anambra State is not just any other state in Nigeria but the state that sired men like Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe (the Zik of Africa), Dr Nwafor Orizu, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Dr Alex Ekwueme, Prof. Chinua Achebe, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, Chief Mbazulike Amaechi, Mazi MCK Ajuluchukwu, Dr Chuba Okadigbo, Edwin Ume-Ezuoke, Cardinal Francis Arinze, Dr Pius Okigbo, Prof. Chike Obi, Chief Jerome Udorji, Philip Emeagwali, Igwe MN Ugochkwu, Sir Clement Akpamgbo, Justice Peter Umea ...

Anambra: Intrigues, propaganda trail poll on november 23, 2013 at 2:36 am in anambra elections, politics BY VINCENT UJUMADU Since Sunday, the 17th November, 2013 when the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, declared the Anambra State governorship election inconclusive and directed that a supplementary election should be held in 211 polling units across the state to determine the eventual winner of the election, the state has been awash with intrigues, propaganda and, sometimes, blackmail by politicians to get their views across. Expectedly, officials of INEC have kept mute, allowing the politicians and their supporters and self –styled analysts to flood the airwaves with arguments to advance their varied opinions. Recall that while announcing the result at the INEC headquarters in Awka, the state collation officer, Professor James Epoke said that the inability of INEC to declare a winner for the election was because the margin with which the highest scorer, Chief Willie Obiano of All Progre ...

FACTORS THAT WORKED AGAINST NGIGE. . Dr. Chris Ngige proved to be the cat with many lives when as governor of Anambra State between 2003 and 2006 he fought within the PDP against the establishment as dictated by former President Olusegun Obasanjo. As governor, Ngige was humiliated and hounded out of the PDP, but there was no other party that took him in and he remained like a political orphan until he was finally removed from office by the courts in March 2006. Though Ngige came into the contest with the perception of a strong presence on the ground, he was, however, to be underemined by serious factors, some of his making and some external to him. . The Platform . It is claimed that if Ngige had used any other platform apart from APC, he would have put in a more challenging battle in the election. APC in the opinion of some Ibos is a Yoruba *** Hausa party with a culture that is alien to Ndigbo. Dr Chris Ngige It was thus no surprise that in the run up to the election that some APGA partisans went on int ...

Nnamdi Azikiwe by Max Siollun s Nigeria’s foremost nationalist and first post independence Head of State, Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe was (and still should be) to Nigeria, what George Washington is to America, Nkrumah is to Ghana, Nasser is to Arabs, and Mandela is to South Africa. The fact that he is not so remembered is a sad testament to Nigeria’s legacy keeping and failure to honour its founding fathers. Azikiwe transcended national politics to become an icon. He is the father of post independence Nigeria. alt 1966 Crisis, Coup and Biafra Although Azikiwe was abroad when Nigeria experienced its first military coup in January 1966, he offered to return soon after it. He was largely ignored by the military government of Major-General Aguiyi-Ironsi, which acted as if he did not exist. When the Igbo Eastern Region seceded from Nigeria in May 1967 as the republic of Biafra, it placed Azikiwe in a difficult position, and gave him a stark choice. He had the choice of either maintaining national unity by supporting ...

SOLO C GIST.COM: The burden on Ngige on November 19, 2013 / in Politics 12:10 am / Comments By CLIFFORD NDUJIHE AMONG the 23 governorship candidates that filed out for the Anambra elections last Saturday, Senator Chris Ngige, the All Progressives Congress (APC) standard bearer is arguably, the most experienced in terms of managing affairs at the Government House. At least, he has been there before and left indelible footprints. One Anambra politician said Ngige’s popularity arose from the landmark achievements he recorded during his illegal three-year tenure. “Ngige made us to know that there is money in government. Before Ngige, our political leaders used to tell us that the state government cannot do anything because they don’t get anything from the Federal Government, that because the Igbos lost the civil war, they no longer receive allocation from Abuja, and so there is no development and Federal presence in the South-East. Ngige showed us that godfathers who were milking the state were ...

The same people deceived Buhari in 2011 into thinking he will get 10% of Igbo votes and when he failed woefully as I predicted, his goons went ahead to kill Igbos in the north on the idiotic premise that elections were rigged in the East. Where you really expecting Ndigbo to vote for Buhari?

When Nnamdi Azikiwe died, Onitsha road was touched, when Ojukwu died, Nnewi benefited, Abiola, Yar'dua, even Abacha, their death added something to the environs.

I knew that APC/Ngige will be defeated the moment INEC announced that Anambra governorship election will be conducted on 16th November which is late Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe's birthday.
While debates flourish over whether or not we need a national conference, we should take some time off to reflect on our frenetic search for an answer as a nation. This search predated our independence in 1960, and the search reminds one of the Greek myth of Sisyphus. It is a story of a man who carries a rock up a hill and when he is almost at the top, the monstrous object falls back to the bottom of the hill. Sisyphus carries it up again and it falls back to the bottom and the travel up and down the hill continues for ever. It fits into a perpetual rigmarole. In the words of poet Okigbo, it’s like a coming and going that goes on forever. Nigeria has been yearning for a formula in that fashion since Lord Lugard made Nigeria one in 1914, and the odyssey from one constitution to another, from one conference to another, has turned Nigeria into a pathetic narrative of search without rescue. Some Nigerians with the patriotism of desperados have clasped President Goodluck Jonathan’s carrot of a confab. Bett ...
Anambra Poll: PDP’s Nwoye rejects results, demands fresh poll NEWSPAPER Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Anambra State, Comrade Tony Nwoye, Sunday, rejected the outcome of Saturday’s election, asking the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to cancel the election in its entirety and conduct a fresh election to be personally supervised by the commision’s chairman, Professor Attahiru Jega. Nwoye told a news conference in Awka that the “the election is far below average and cannot be said to be free and fair” adding that “it was heavily manipulated by INEC in collusion with security agents in favour of Governor Peter Obi’s preferred candidate, Willie Obiano.” Nwoye said: “I have been involved in many elections in this country since my secondary schools days and particularly in 1993 Presidential election where Moshood Abiola emerged, I have never seen this type of rigging. I have never seen an election where the military men and police were harassing ...
