After months of wide but careful deliberations and consultations with my family, friends, political associates and supporters, today, I am announcing the suspension of my Presidential Bid in the interest of our country and party. As it stands, I have been deeply humbled by the spark that my prospective candidacy has ignited among Nigerians across Nigeria and abroad; Young people, youth groups, and stakeholders from all geo-political zones have sought the change that they wish to see. These young people by their overwhelming support have not only encouraged my candidacy, they have endorsed the change that they desperately crave. As complicated as the political outlook of 2015 currently seems, now is the time for well-meaning Nigerians from all works of life to fall-in-line and become rank-and-file soldiers in our struggle to reclaim our nation. I have always maintained that I did not leave the ruling party for the opposition because of any personal interest; Anyone who understands Nigerian politics would k ...

Nigeria's Super Eagles paid the ultimate price of failure upon arrival in the country this morning as they were roundly booed by fans at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja. The Super Eagles lost a vital game in the 2015 African Nations Cup qualifiers,beaten 1-0 by Sudan in Khartoum on Saturday. As a result of the loss,the Super Eagles are now in danger of not qualifying for the Nations Cup,lying bottom of their group with just one point in three matches. The Super Eagles touched down in Abuja today to prepare for the return leg of the qualifiers against Sudan,but they met the unfortunate incident when people at the airport started jeering at them,making mockery of their performance in yesterday's game. Airport staff and passengers alike who would gladly try to warm up to the Super Eagles on any other day,shunned all the niceties and booed them upon their arrival in Abuja. The team was said to have hurriedly left the airport to avoid further shame and made way to their hotel to rest before p ...
Who is a Leader? Is GEJ a true Leader? by Adedeji Adebisi A country that is so much blessed that became the envy of other countries especially in Africa. But as now become a mockery and a laughing stock for other countries! Even smaller countries in Africa no longer give Nigeria the respect it deserves, not to talk of the larger once. Nigeria that formally was known as the “giant’ of Africa is now refer to as; the “ant” of Africa. A country blessed with intellectuals who have make their marks all over the world are been ruled by charlatans and brain dead politician. have we not learnt any thing from our past? Why is it that while other countries push forward their best to lead them, but we continue to put forward our least? Is somebody telling me that we don’t have ppl in Nigeria who could stand with the likes of Obama, Godon Brown etc intellectually or otherwise?! Are we so cursed as a nation that only the corrupt, the greedy, the lazy, and the ppl bereft of ideas always succeeded in ruling us? ...

PAN-AFRICANISM: A BRIEF HISTORICAL OVERVIEW 4 Casablanca versus Monrovia: Revolutionary versus Demagogic Pan-Africanism A conference attended by Egypt, Ghana, Guinea, Morocco, Tunisia and the GP.R.A. was held in Casablanca from 3 to 7 January 1961. The participants endowed themselves with a Charter and emerged as the so-called Casablanca Group, which proved consistent in its support for African revolutionary anti-imperialist movements, especially in Algeria and Cameroon. Five months later, from 8 to 12 May 1961, in Monrovia, Liberia, another conference was held. It was attended by 21 countries, including Ahidjo’s puppet regime. The participants in the Casablanca Conference did not go to Monrovia. So what was decided at this new conference, called almost as a riposte to the one in Casablanca? The delegates adopted one fundamental resolution, insisting on ‘non-interference in the internal affairs of other states’, and expressed ‘unreserved condemnation of any subversive action conducted from outside ...

Nigeria at 54: Nigerian leaders so far* Chidozie Martins Ugwu 1. Balewa/Azikiwe (1960-1966) Independence: At independence in 1960, the independence constitution made provision for the office of Prime Minister but retained the British queen as the head of state. The Prime Minister who was also the head of government was vested with the executive powers. The office was headed by Alh. Abubakar Tafawa Balewa. The British queen was represented by the indigenous governor-general, dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe who was a mere ceremonial leader. Republic: The republican constitution of 1963 presented Nigerians an opportunity to elect their leaders. In 1963, Nigerians for the first time, enjoyed an indigenous government free from the queen's interference. The parliamentary system of government which was the order of the day then, saw Alh. Tafawa Balewa elected as the Prime Minister (his party won the majority in the house). A republic is a state under an elected government. So in 1963, Nigeria became a republic with Dr. Aziki ...

Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is the next best President of Nigeria after Nnamdi Azikiwe. Right now He stands out as the President with lots of positive results in almost all the sectors of the economy. Imagine if these wolves didn't carry out their negative promise of making Nigeria ungovernable. These wolves are coming back again to contest for Presidency, knowing fully well that they will loose again as their custom has been. What will be their next negative promise after losing again seeing the negative impact of BH. Please I want us to keep praying for Nigeria. There is no place for the wicked, we dont deserve these people as our leaders. Pray that God will touch their hearts to drop their deadly ambition or . (fill in) but dont ever pray for them to win because their hearts are evil above all, desperately wicked. Evil shall slay the wicked, can I get a big Amen somebody.
Abubakar Shekau is dead, period! All this propaganda I see online could sell during the Biafran/ Nigeria Civil War. Or better, still during the colonial period when Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe was thought to be a myth in the struggle for Independence. Or during the resistance of the white men in my little village, Amucha, the home of Njaba River. My grand mom told stories that her mom and grand mom told her of how Njaba warriors were able to resist the occupation of our village especially protecting the deity, Njaba, from cultural infiltration. As for the story, Abubakar Shekau is alive, it is a total bull crap. If Boko Haram and its sponsors like let them make a clone outta of him. Abubakar Shekau is dead, QED!
Independence as portrayed by Hansdowells, is the freedom from the political control by other country. Oh thank God for Anthony Anahoro who has moved this motion and Nnamdi Azikiwe for his leadership.

NIGERIA IS 54 TODAY What is today known as Nigeria came into being in the year 1914, when the northern and southern protectorates of Nigeria was merged together into becoming one indivisible colony by the first Governor General of Nigeria, Mr. Frederick Lord Lugard of Great Britain. Thus, a great country NIGERIA was born. After 46years of British rulership with many Governor Generals, Nigeria finally got her freedom from the British authority in the year 1960 when the British flag known as "Jack" was lowered down and our own flag was hoisted to the admiration and jubilation of Nigerians. Hence, our independence. However, the independence we enjoy today wouldn't have been achieved if not for the duggedness, tireless and persistent character and effort of our foremost fathers and nationalists namely: Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Alhaji Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Alhaji Ahmadu Bello, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Chief Michael Okpara, etc, all late. After her independence, Nigeria adopted and embraced the parliamentary system ...

President Jonathan, Please Come Clean On the $9.3 Million Controversy – APC Posted on 19 September. The All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged President Goodluck Jonathan to come clean on the circumstances surrounding the 9.3 million US dollars that was impounded in South Africa, which has become the latest in a series of global ridicule to which the scandal-prone Jonathan Administration has subjected Nigeria and her people. In a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party also called on the National Assembly to launch an urgent investigation into the issue, saying the silence of the peoples’ representatives on the issue is deafening, unfathomable and unacceptable. It said there is no doubt that the President is at the centre of the whole issue, considering the presidential treatment given to the plane and its cargo, since the plane departed from the Presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, away from the re ...

THE $9.3m SEIZED BY THE SOUTH AFRICAN GOVT; MY OPINION. BY: OTTAN SARAFADEEN It is no longer news that the South African police are investigating two Nigerians and an Israeli citizen who tried to bring $9.3m (about N1.5bn), in cash into the country illegally. This has led to mixed feelings and series of attacks from different angles of the country, Nigeria. I have decided to break my silence too after reading so many reports. 'The money was meant to procure arms for the Nigeria government' so they said. if it is to buy arms for the government, why is it not through bank transfer with registered military contractors? Especially this time that technology through internet banking has made every financial transactions easy. Even if I want to send to a second party now, I don't even need to go to the bank!!! In the same week, Issues of Money laundering surfaced and the Synagogue building collapsed, claiming lives of South Africans and Nigerians. Who can really be proud to be called a Nigerian in this dispensat ...

LEADERSHIP: D meaning of d power of Vision. Dubai was built in less than 20 yrs & d father of Dubai Sheikh Moh'd Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum has this to say: "What u see in Dubai today is nothing compared to my ultimate vision for Dubai" [In his book- My vision, challengees in d race for excellence] D question here is, if Dubai has not started yet, then we'll kip wondering what Al-Maktoum plans for Dubai. That's what vision is all abt. D most important thing to knw is that, things can be done. If u want things to b done, d only thing is to find d person that wants to do it. We have them b4 in d person of Sardauna Ahmadu Bello, Obafemi Awolowo, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Gen Murtala Mohammed, Gen Buhari & Idiagbon. etc. Visionary leaders.

AMEYO ADADEVOH AND THE EBOLA CONSPIRACY In an essay titled ''Patrick Sawyer, Ebola and the Illuminati Connection'' (Thisday Newspaper, 23rd August 2014) and ''A Virus Called Ebola and the Secret Club From *** ' (Premium Times, 17th August 2014) I wrote that Patrick Sawyer, the American/Liberian that brought the ebola virus to Nigeria ''was an evil man with an evil intention and purpose''. I went further by writing that: ''worst still he was not working alone. Some people, and I mean rich, powerful and well-connected people, were working with him. As a matter of fact they sent him on the mission''. I stand by those words and I maintain, as I argued in that essay, that there is an ''Illuminati'' connection to the whole ebola episode. I urge those that are skeptical about this and that have not read that write-up to google it and do so. This short contribution is something of an addendum to that essay. I was compelled to write it for two reasons. Firstly because the sheer depth, complexity and audacity of t ...

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.

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 ...

Faces on Nigeria’s Currency Denominations: Urgent Need for a Re-Visit Nigeria gained her independence from Britain on October 01, 1960. She became a republic on October 01, 1963 and on January 01, 1973 Nigeria’s currency was changed to Naira and Kobo from pounds and shillings while it’s colours were done so on April 25, 1984. The introduction of Fifty Naira(N50), conversion of One Naira(N1) and Fifty Kobo(50k) to coins was done on August 27, 1991. One hundred Naira(N100) came up on December 01, 1999, Two hundred Naira(N200) November 01, 2000, Five hundred Naira(N500) April 01, 2001 and One thousand Naira(N1000) October 12, 2005.

He who pays before receiving his commodity while buying from traffic vendors has failed the Nigerian state . - Nnamdi Azikiwe (1963)
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?

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. You said elections were rigged in 1959, Obasanjo and Maurice Iwu rigged election in 2007. Was it a Southern thing? It was not.

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 ?

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.

"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.
Any Ibo man that doesn't have a 'pot belly' and 'tyres' at the back of his neck hasn't been to his hometown.~Nnamdi Azikiwe.
Creativity is the soul of a true scholar. ~ Nnamdi Azikiwe quote --

Farewell to the great Nationalists, the lands were green when u were alive; the paradise u created while I was still in thefoetus has now be turned into red lands where blood flows like river Nile; your children u handed over powers to have become the enemies of the paradise u created; while in your spirit world, u still watch over us; u battle against earthquake, tsunami, cyclones, tonados so that your paradise remain as u have created it before u left the journey underneath the surface of your paradise. Is it when the paradise is fully distroyed that you will magotize to fight? The worst parts is that your great grand children have been kidnapped and you filled relaxed without echoing and belching on the enemies. We know u are within us and we summond you to arise and restructure the self actualisation, emancipation you fought!

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?
I remember the first election for Executive President of Nigeria,,'I remember Alhaji Aminu Kano from PRP, i remember Alhaji Waziri from GNPP, I also remember Chief Obafemi Awolowo from UPN, I can never forget you Alhaji Shehu Shagari NPN Presidential candidate, i have no reason to forget you Hon. 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.

Sadly, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Obafemi Awolowo ... Will be turning in their graves knowing the kinda politicians that currently heads Nigeria!
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.

Nigeria Crying For Help. Our nation once cried. The cry for Freedom from the British in the early Nigerian Federation. Our great leaders responded. Sir Ahmadu Belllo and Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa formed a successful alliance with Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe. A sovereign Nigeria Nation was born. Change came to Nigeria. We have our Victory. We cried again and we demanded to be Educated. Chief Obafemi Awolowo pioneered free Education and free Health Care in Nigeria. Again, we have our Victory. Our nation, Strong and Powerful. Economy, well respected in the union of nations. Now we Cry, the cry of a nation in Turmoil. Our beloved Nigeria crying for help. She cries: Help me. Love me. Save me. Our country needs us. Nigeria our father’s land, a proud nation, a large and a fruitful land, a land fertile and flowing with abundance of natural resources, and a strong people of intellect with minds of a genius. So we Cry and cry. For We Have No Leadership. The seat of power is Crippled with Corruption. An Impotent Leadershi ...
Will attempt to address the three previous questions in a not so short summary that links to ‘Pacte Coloniale’. You cannot address any African issue without going into the following: 1. Politics (.1’Pacte Coloniale’ & France’s ‘scorched earth’ policy towards the colonies.2 removal of Pan Africanist leaders Toussaint Le Oveture of Haiti, Modibo Keita of Mali, Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Patrice Lumumba of Congo, Sylvanus Olympio of Togo, Thomas Sankara of Burkina Faso, Nnamdi Azikiwe of Nigeria, Amilcar Cabral of Guinea-Bissau, Sekou Toure of Guinea,Leon M’ba of Gabon & a whole lot more) 2. Economics (.1 Europe’s reliance on Uranium in Mali, Togo, CAR, Niger to generate electricity .2 reliance on Congolese Uranium to build the atomic bombs, coltan into mobile phones…& a whole lot more) 3. Socio-culture (the assimilation of colonial citizens into French culture, education, ideals,etc. with the effect that it perpetuates Europe’s ideals on the African continent.

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- ...
