Additional state in S’East non-negotiable–Sen Okonkwo

67

Senator Annie Okonkwo hails from Anambra State and represented Anambra Central in the 6th Senate of the National Assembly. Since his departure from the Senate, he has been involved in other things, relating to the development of the Ndigbo nation. He is the president of C-21, a pan-Igbo cultural group, pursing the South-east agenda. In this interview, the former federal lawmaker added his voice to the ongoing call by Igbo leaders that it is their turn to produce the next president. He also spoke on the race to succeed Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State. FRED ITUA brings the excerpts:

Since you left the Senate, what have you been into?

I am currently heading the C-21, a social cultural action group from the South-east. We are projecting the South-east agenda ahead of 2015.

What informed the formation of that group and what do you intend to achieve with it?

First of all, we have decided that this is a group that we want to use to articulate the vision of the South-east in the country. Of course we have been championing the issue of infrastructure that is not in the South-east. We are also championing the position of an Igbo man in Nigeria. We are also looking at the social aspect of life where most of us are not happy with the position of things.

We are further looking at the position of the South-east to see that they get their own share in whatever development happening in Nigeria. We are also pursuing the empowerment of our people, to see that good leadership happens in our areas. All these points are what we are actually looking at to see that we can put in more pressure on government to make sure that they do the right thing.

Some people see the Igbo agenda of producing the president as a tall dream considering that President Goodluck Jonathan is most likely to contest again in 2015. Should that happen, will the Igbos support him or will they insist supporting their own.

The South-east has defined their agenda clearly and that is why we have decided on a political party which is APGA that we are going to use as a platform in fielding our own presidential candidate.

We will also meet with some other zones and get their support and we hope they will support us. So if PDP members from the South-east have endorsed Jonathan, what is our business? We are fielding a candidate that will be supported by all the people. Our concern is to ensure that we produce a credible candidate that will be supported by all South-eastern people and of course other zones who believe that it is good to be fair. If you listen to any gathering in the South-east, all of them unanimously agree that this time around, we are going to field in a candidate of Igbo extraction.

But there are internal crises in APGA and if these crises are not put in check, don’t you think it will affect the chances of the region in 2015?

If you have watched events, there may be personality clashes in one way or the other. But the truth of the matter is that APGA is intact. People are trying to sabotage and sack the chairman of the party. But you can see that INEC has come up to say that they have breached the constitution and they are not allowed to do so. The National Chairman is still in charge. As far as I am concerned, the party is going stronger and stronger every day.

Does that mean that APGA will not be part of the coalition to form a mega party?

It is part of our negotiation. This is part of the strategy that we know that will help our cause. APGA will be part of any new coalition.

Anambra State will soon have another governorship election. A particular senatorial zone has been complaining that never produced any governor since the creation of the state. What is your projection on that and on other issues that will decide the outcome of the election?

There is no day Anambra leaders have even sat to agree on sharing of any position. There is no issue of any region producing the next governor. Our policy is, let the best candidate emerge. Every party has its own candidate, so if you are in party A, you can field a candidate from zone B and it is also the same with other parties. At the end of the day, all the candidates will go to the field. There has never been a situation where one zones will be fielding candidates alone. I don’t think a different thing will happen in 2014.

Anambra State is currently dealing with  the issue of flood that has displaced many residents. Do you think well-to-do people from the state are doing enough to help salvage the situation?

From what I can see, the flood issue is a serious problem. I want to use this opportunity to applaud the Federal Government, especially the President himself for going there to assess the situation. We also have the presidential committee that was set up to raise N100 billion, which I think it is not enough, but let us start from there. I think we should allow the situation to get to the international community to see whether we can attract NGOs.

For me personally, I have visited them and have spent millions of naira in supporting them and I think individuals are doing the same thing on personal levels as well. But collectively, I have not heard any group doing something about it.

The South-east has been agitating for an extra state to correct the imbalance in the South-East region. Some are of the opinion that, why would they canvass for another state even when the existing states in the country appear not have the capacity to self-develop.

There is no doubt that the South-east has been marginalised. There is no justification where some zones will have six and seven states but one will  have only five. By doing that, you are depriving them of funding to develop their zone, local government and all that. It is good to be fair. I think we need to continue to say it that we must be given another state.

Since the independence, no civilian administration has ever created a state in the country. Some believe therefore that there might not be that political will. Do you share such fears?

It is part of the problem we are facing. we must address injustice like what happened in the Niger-Delta region. A President woke up and decided to create the Niger-Delta Ministry. He decided to give them amnesty. We all supported it because we believe that there was need for that and today, South-easterners are agitating for an additional state because of the imbalance. It is being ignored. We want it whether a President will declare it or through the constitution, but we must also be given our own due.

As a former senator, what is your take on the on-going face off between National Assembly and Executive over the 2013 budget benchmark?

I think before the budget is passed, the two Houses must agree. The issue is that, the President sent in an estimate. The real appropriation is passed by the National Assembly. I believe that they will still have to agree on the figure because they are in a better position to know what the people needed because they are closer to the masses.

The Presidency does not know what happens in the constituencies. So it is their duty to know what will benefit their people. The National Assembly has the right to amend it for the benefit of Nigerians. But I still think they should settle the issue quickly so that they can start working on the bill and ensure it’s passed before end of this year.

  1. this is nonnegotiable,to balance the inbalances.hw come other regions has more states dan d south east,presido gudluck shuld pls order d creation of additional state.

  2. A state in Igboland and another state anywhere else nullifies any good anybody intends to do. I plead with the law makers not to see this exercise as a way to just satisfy political ego. What is expedient and really needful is just one state in the south-east zone. nothing more or less.

  3. Oga , stop talking about leadership when u woefully failed to manage Zoom Mobile (Reltel wireless) u owe us 8 months salary and laid off all staff.. u should bury your head in shame.. Any serious minded person will disregard you when you are heard talking about leadership

  4. What Igbo people need now is our own nation-(BIAFRA). And not 2015 president or another state. All Igbo groups should have one spirit, one mind and one voice to agitate for that. Any other thing apart from this BIAFRA is selfish intrest. May God help us to archieve that thru Jesus Christ our Lord…., I can hear U say AMEN!

  5. Yes!we need a new state in the south east,and Gods willing it will come to pass.But one thing is desired by people like me in the creation of that state,that people like Anni Okonkwo should not be part of that state.

  6. I find it very difficult to understand de ibos of today. Why cos one moment they want to be de president of nigeria come 2015, two they want new state to be created within southeast and at de same time they want to stand on Aburi and again they want biafra republic. Do u really want all these within nigeria nation or what do u really want?. U will never get anything until u state clearly what ur wants are n in a coerent way n with one voice. And pls don’t depends on what senator okonkow said, his kinds are not reliable cos de likes of him are politician of bread n butter. While he was in de hse as a senator, what did he acomplished for de state that sent him to Abuja?.pls we are sick of ur noise. I u want to be de next president u know what to do, find a credible candidate n if u want more state tell ur people in both hses to ask for it n if u want to stand on ur Aburi n biafra u can do that as well cos nigeria can move forward without de jew of nigeria. At least when u do leave, de remaining Nigerians will be able to buy qualty goods. U know what i mean?. When u do leave we hope u will carry with u all ur second rate goods away from nigeria’s circulation. Can’t wait for that day really.

  7. what is the need of having new state in s.e, since other tribe in Nigeria hate the igbo’s and is hardly u see an igbo race holding a position in Nigeria .The best for we the igbos is to have our own independence and nation called Republic of Biafra, and watch the downfall of Nigeria cos behind the success of Nigeria there is an igbo . I’m proud to be an igbo race.

  8. How can the whole of south east demanding for more one state and nobody wan’t to do any thing on it, even ijaw president jonatharn adding igbo name in his name to attract igbo vote without having interet of ndi-igbo in his heart.

  9. How can the whole of south east demanding for more one state and nobody wan’t to do any thing on it, even ijaw president jonatharn adding igbo name in his name to attract igbo vote without having interet of ndi-igbo in his heart.

  10. @kola, what quality goods do u so called Yoruba produce in Nigeria .Thank God at least we igbo’s produce something government are proud of . If we leave Nigeria u people especially Yoruba we suffer cos u people are lazy, disgusting and depends on igbo for income, development, in fact everything… igbo’s made what Nigeria is today for example if igbo leave Lagos today there will b no place called Lagos, the commercial activities will fall. so mind the way u insult an igbo race.

  11. kola amodu, you have spoken well.please help me ask these senseless Ibo people.Are they belong to Nigeria or biafra? I does’t hate Ibos but their characters.They are just behaving like animals honestly.
    Morever, issue of state creation always base on the demography density not in ethnicity or zoning consideration that they should understand clearly in the criteria of creation state or local Government council.

    • HOW COULD YOU REFER TO IGBOS AS ANIMALS, YOUR FATHER, MOTHER IS AN ANIMAL, ALL THE YORUBA INCLUDING YOUR OBSA ARE ALL ANIMALS, AWOLOWO COMMITING SUCIDE DUE TO HIS WICKEDNESS AGAINST THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS, YOUR ENVIOUS, UNWARRANTED HATRED AGAINST THE IGBOS SHALL BRING AN END TO YOUR RACE. AWOLOWOS PLOT AGAINST THE IGBOS DID NOT AND IT CAN NEVER, WE ARE JEWS DIVINE GRACE, DIVINE MERCY EVERLASTING KINDNESS AND AGAPE LOVE OG GOD IS UPON US, WITH OR WITH OUT NIGERIA IGBOS ARE RISING STAR AND OUR STARS HAS NO END, ITS FROM GLORY TO GLORY, REMEMBER ALL WAS LOST DURING THE CIVIL, YOUR LEADER AWOLOWO TOOK ADVANTAGE OF IGBOS WITH HIS POSSITION, BUT NO MATTER THE STREINGHT OF DARKNESS, LIGHT IS LIGHT, IGBOS ARE LIGHT OF THIS NATION AND THE GLORY OF NIGERIA WAS TAKEN AWAY AFTER THE CIVIL WAR, THE LIGHT MUST ONLY SHINE ON BIAFRA, THE YORUBAS SHOULD GO WITH THEIR DARKNESS AND WICKEDNESS, THERE IS NO PEACE IN YORUBA LAND, I AM MORE CLOSER TO YOUR LEADERS THAN YOU MORON, ITS ALL FAKE LOVE, TWO MAN ECONOMIC INTEGRATION, ANINI/RAMBO TINUBU / FASHIOLA.

  12. Chief David Obi on

    @kola amodu,the only thing u know about the IGBO is l’os QUALITY goods.It s a pity after giving such candid advise u end up as a clown.The CEO /MD of MY PIKIN medicine that killed thousands of children in Nigeria is not IGBO but from YR place in as much as l acknowledge that IGBOs are not saints .

  13. Annie okonkwo, wen u ar in d senate wots ar ur contributions regarding state creation? U wasted 4 good yrs witout doing anytin 4 Ndi igbo. Now u want additional state so dat u will draw our attention 2 urself. Stupid man 419)

  14. wether presedent from s east or not,additional state or no additional state,we are asking for biafra…igbos unit to enable us solve our problems

  15. @Haruna Sako; What disgust me most is hidding an advice from a hopeless full like haruna sako who does nt know where d rain started beating him and will never know where it wll stop.U hate ibos xracters bt u nver told us of ur own hausa brothers xracters who choose to kill human beings lik u goat, Well is unfortunate reply ur post cos u hv nt mke ur self clear, so i adviced u should pik up ur primary school reader n sort ur self out cos u hv a lot of GRAMMATICAL BLONDER in ur post.

  16. The only Igbo That leave in the East will ask for Biafra, not those one that are well established in Lagos Kano, Abuja or otherwise. Igbo are good, their girls are beautiful, their men are hard working, but they ca never unite.

  17. Yes, additional state but, but for peace’s sake in the SE, not a state carved from extracting Lgas from the five states of SE.

    That is being opportunist by the people who the location may favour. When the new state is to be created all the groups agitating for its location must present their cases before the two full houses of the NASS. Not before a committee of the NASS; no state through recommendation by any group.

  18. @ kola and Haruna Sako, let me handle malam Haruna first because u kola it seems u have consumed much amala with Egufe. D hangover is portraying its presence on u. Malam Haruna when have u finished pasturing ur cattles at ur savannah forest before seeing ur next Allah the Igbos as being foolish? Wonders shall never end indeed, a bloody illiterate like u coming out from the least educated tribe in Nigeria to address a well articulated tribe Igbo as a senseless entity. I really blame British on this otherwise,a cattle rearer of ur magnitude can not insult the mighty Igbos in ur life. After ur tribes 48 yrs of misruling Nigeria, u re proud to advocate issues bordering on Nigeria as a nation,shameless people. It is clear to us that u re under cover with Boko Haram. JTF will soon rediscover ur hideouts stupor. A beast in the savannah forest discussing with human being, wonders shall never end.

  19. Annie honestly looking at ur deceitful face alone irritate me, when did u learn to speak in public, who taught u english, during ur 4yrs term in house, were u able to fill a pothole with sand even in ur home town OJOTO? were u able to raise, move, or support any motion while on seat? the boreholes u spend billions to construct in anambra central especialy at ojoto not even one work for 24 hrs. then what is all about this noise of igbo presidency, additional state, etc. when igbo youths are tired of fools like u and are agitating for their independent nation (BIAFRA). dirty coward like u are not surposed to be an igbo man but a yorubo origin afterall u were born and brought up in yoruba land. idiot! and u even claim to have spent millions to flood victims, OLE! KPARAWO!! ONYE OCHI!! who dash monkey banana.

  20. Let Haruna Sako speak his mind, afterall he is a true nigeria. Can i say de same of the jews of nigeria. Most of u shouting about ur Aburi don ‘t know what de aburi is. De like of owerri are just like ibos’ second rate goods. By de way u don’t produce anything u import these junks from china. When u do get ur aburi and ur biafra, i will at least be able to send my kids to buy me original panadol or paracetermo, cos then i will know that the heartless nigeria jews has left. Have u forgotten how Yoruba race once made nigeria envy of black race?. Am talking of one and only sage OBAFEMI AWOLOWO. I mean de old western region. Yorubas are abetter race than u ibos will ever be. U know why, cos in de process of our work we show we have concience. But can anyone say that about jews of nigeria. In what ever an average ibo man or woman does they don’t belief there should be moral in business. Even a bag of cement which we all know should be 50kg, if u buy it from ibo seller, is either 45kg or 40kg. With all these who do u think will miss u when u finally leave nigeria?.I rest my case.

  21. To me Nigeria need more states. We need like about 90 states. if you would see development that is about what we need. And let me tell those who are saying that ” states are not equals to development” that they are kidding. Look at a state like Ebonyi how developed they are… do you think that if they were still with Enugu that they would see such development? Please we need more states.

  22. HOW COULD YOU REFER TO IGBOS AS ANIMALS, YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER ARE BOTH ANIMALS, ALL THE YORUBA’S INCLUDING YOUR OBAS ARE ALL ANIMALS, AWOLOWO COMMITED SUCIDE DUE TO HIS WICKEDNESS AGAINST THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF IGBO ORIGIN, YOUR ENVIOUS, UNWARRANTED HATRED AGAINST THE IGBOS SHALL BRING AN END TO YOUR RACE. AWOLOWO’S PLOT AGAINST THE IGBOS DID NOT WORK AND IT CAN NEVER, WE ARE JEWS DIVINE GRACE, DIVINE MERCY EVERLASTING KINDNESS AND AGAPE LOVE OF GOD IS UPON US, WE WILL EXCEL, IGBOS ARE RISING STAR AND OUR STARS HAS NO END, ITS FROM GLORY TO GLORY, REMEMBER ALL WAS LOST DURING THE CIVIL WAR, YOUR LEADER AWOLOWO TOOK ADVANTAGE OF IGBOS WITH HIS POSSITION, BUT NO MATTER THE STREINGHT OF DARKNESS, LIGHT WILL SURELLY OVER RULE THE POWER OF DARKNESS, IGBOS ARE LIGHT OF THIS NATION AND THE GLORY OF NIGERIA WAS TAKEN AWAY AFTER THE CIVIL WAR, THE LIGHT AND GLORY MUST ONLY SHINE ON BIAFRA, THE YORUBAS SHOULD GO WITH THEIR DARKNESS AND WICKEDNESS, THERE IS NO PEACE IN YORUBA LAND, I AM MORE CLOSER TO YOUR LEADERS THAN YOU MORON, ITS ARTIFICIAL LOVE, 2MAN ECONOMIC INTEGRATION, ANINI/RAMBO TINUBU / FASHIOLA

  23. @ kola Amodu, ur sage Obafemi Awolowo achieved a Lot indeed. The first African leader that was imprisoned on felony charges. The first sage that viewed television screen in Africa.The first leader in Africa that obliterated 3 million souls, women and children of Igbo origin. The sage that siphon all the finances of his foes on £20 pounds sterling subvention policy. The only sage in Africa that committed suicide in his bed room and gave up to ghost. The sage in Africa that was reburried so many times after his death on earth. The only sage in Africa that is languishing in hell fire bonded with brimstones and sulphur. A sage that will posthumously appear before the international war crime commission, for crime against humanity. A very good remarkable achievements that made him to stand tall above all his colleagues. The god of Yoruba land, the sage that ever liveth,thanks for all ur good works, eternity is on the throne now.

  24. @ kola, how many of ur leaders is as handsome as Annie Okonkwo? Is it Tinubu that has a replica of owl eyes added to his habitual criminally minded spirit. Ok can we compare ur alp look alike father OBJ? What of MKO Abiola have u forgotten about his outlook so soon? Bode Gorge, the other criminal that went to jail as well, Tarfa Balogun, can,t u see how he looks like, does such an individual looks presentable to u in all ramification? Only Wole Soyinka that looks very handsome in Yoruba land but he is not a Yoruba leader rather, a world leader. Soyinka,Gani Feyemi, Falana,and the up coming FASHOLA remains the most revered.

  25. NDIGBO DOES NOT NEED NIGERIA, NIGERIA IS FRAUDULENT AND STINKING. WHAT NDIGBO NEED IS BIAFRA AND TODAY, BIAFRA IS ALIVE AND KICKING. NDIGBO SHOULD BE FAST TO KICK NIGERIA GOVT AND ITS COLLABORATORS OUT OF BIAFRA LAND. RAHTER THAN TELLING US ABOUT ADDITIONAL STATE, IGBO LEADERS SHOULD FIGHT TO RELEASE ALL PRO-BIAFRA ACTIVISTS IN NIGERIA PRISONS. THEY SHOULD ALSO SPEAK OUT ON BIAFRA. THESE ARE WHAT WE NEED FROM THEM.

  26. haruna/kola,dis is most pejorative on de igbo race.hw come u refeering to a whole race as ani***&co.in as much as i want to keep my words vague,as a paragon of civility,i am most disappointed dat men of ur race can be dis rude!if u are talking about us like dat,wat about awolowo&gowon dat jointly massacred millions of unarmed igbos?does dis not amount to genocide,man inhumanity to man,most unwarranted!since u said we shuld give dem chieftancy titles,wat title name do u recomend for d both?

  27. Prince Jimmy I have noticed, that you and your likes in the BZM are always the ones shouting loud about Biafra’s indepence. I dont blame you because. 1. You are based in the east and have no thing to lose. 2, you have failed to understand the complexities of Nigerian politics, that is why you cry marginalisation, without doing your home-work properly to force out your share from the Fed Govt. Though Sen Annie messed up in the senate, but his point is what every true Igboman is articulating. MASSOB and other Igbo social group have clearly understood the politics of Nigeria. That is why they have stated unanimously the Igbo agenda. The second Niger bridge, infrastructural developent in the south-east. 3, additional state and the Presidecy. If Goodluck decides to recontest in 2015, then he should prepare himself for shame, because he would not get our votes. Nigeria would never be divided inspite of our challenges. I believe in the long run a national conference, like the aburi accord would be convened, where every aggrieved tribe would come together to mend the broken bridge of Nigeria.

  28. Ulu owerri u really made me laugh.i can see that u got all my message about u ibos. I know u’re prety but u see Bola Hammed may not be as hansome as ur brother anni okonkwo but we Yorubas acknowldged what He BHT is doing for us. U all use yoruba land as yardstick to determine ur progress. Tell me honestly, which of ur so call leader can stand with BHT. Am taking about accomplishment. Ur leader don’t develop ur region all they do is to eat ur money n u still think u have mouth disrespect BHT. Don’t u have same at all. Perhaps it’s high time u start parking ur belonging n move back to ur biafra. By de way, Awo did not kill ibos. He was never a mlitaryman remember,ojukwu and de like him killed ur people. Did ur old man ever told u about de genocide u ibos commited against de Calabar and de rest of south south people, am sure he will never tell u that. Ur old man think ibos are better than de rest of south south. If anybody should be charged with genocide that person shoulh be ur leader for de pain he caused de rest of us. I bet u want compesation don’t u?. Hnnn Ibo and money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • @KOLA, ALL I KNOW IS THAT, WITHOUT THE IGBOS NO YORUBA MAN, WOMAN, BOY OR GIRL EVEN THEIR ANIMALS WILL EVER SUCCEED. ITS MATTER OF TIME, WE SHALL SOON KNOW THE TRUTH. YOUR CHILDREN ARE ALL IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS, EVEN IN YOUR OWN STATES, THE IGBOS ARE LEADING. SORRY YOU CANT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT

  29. @ Amodu, I,m not ulu Owerri. This is Owerri knocking at ur door step why re u misrepresenting my person? I can vividly understand that u re very much afraid of me. Now listen, ur Tinubu is no match to Igbo guys reason being that Tinubu is a renouned fugitive. A swindler, he denounced his state of origin OSUN. He smokes cannabis that leads to madness and he is soverign such at the moment. He manipulates judicial system at the detriment of popular wish. The one u called a sage committed suicide after he over viewed his atrocities right inside his bed room. Haven,t u heard that the wicked man is condemned in hell fire bonded with brimstones and sulphur. That he killed 3 million Igbo women and children for no reason. How can a man be reburried several times after his death? He stole all the money belonging to Igbo people in the then barclays bank to gave u people free education. Can a Yoruba man ever given u anything free if not this monumental stealing from ur so called sage? Pls no Igbo man can be compared to these two devilish brothers of yours. It’s only Igbo man that can give out worthy amount of money to assist mankind. The $100 million usd given to OBJ in 1999 by our own brother Orji Kalu lends credence to all what i have been illustrated therein. To u Amodu, good morning.

  30. Kola you have running mouth, that is why you are always saying trash without thinking. Which deluded father or uncle of yours, told you about the civil war. U and other pro-Awoists were never in the theatre of the war, and basically have no idea about the war. They was never a mass killing carried out against the minorities of the east before and during the war. Though there was a political misunderstanding between the Igbo and the minorities, which led to the clamour for the COR region, just like the mid-west. We in the east in spite of our shortcomings have always believed in brotherhood and oneness. Unlike in the west where Akintola, allowed himself to be used by the north to carry out operation wetie. Instead of you to read objective books and foreign reports about the war, you allow stories told you by propagandist lying elites of your tribe overule your judgements. Though the Biafran elites are not innocent too, because their haste to seceed without adequate preparations, made the genocide a possibility. But the bulk of the blame lies on the north in conivance with your sage, who allowed emotions overule his judgements. Instead of your likes to sympatize with a tribe you cause the death of 2million of its people, a people who still nurse the trauma and agony. All you do is come here and add more salt to injury, by defending a sage, who had already spoken for himself. Even to the extent of cooking up false stories. If your people feel no remorse about it, then it is grave, because if the table turns around, our people would gladly seize the opportuinity to melt out the same blow to your folks, This time ruthlessly. Instead of adding your fuel to the already heightened tension, you should try calming it. Afterall we and ur folk were never enemies, despite the civil war.

  31. @ Amodu,for ur information Lagos remains no man,s land because it was rightly developed by federal govt of Nigeria. How many choice buildings re being owned by ur people in Lagos if not the mighty Igbos. Name any area ur tribe developed collectively than Igbo land. Tomorrow Hausa/Fulani will boost of Abuja in likewise manner fools. Remember Abuja was single handedly been structured by a renouned Igbo son Dr Alex Ekwueme. U can see the architectural master piece of all times that comes out from our son that is a pride to every African today,other African cities were designed by white people re u in doubt?

  32. Haruna,Kola for you to open ur mouth and called a whole race animal. It shows u lack home training, I refer you to a psychiatrist to diagnose u pple

  33. @Owerri, u’re doing a good job by educating that cow that is breathing thru his maggot infested anus. And that almajiri that has not taken his bath is also talking. Chineke! It’s not their fault,no thanks to the British.

  34. Owerri, stop referring to the Igbos as almighty. No tribe in Nigeria is inferior. Its ur likes that make, other tribe misunderstand us. You just stay in owerri to spill out rubbish, while other innocent Igbo in far north, suffer xenophobic attacks. I suggest u retract that statement.

  35. @ Chiwude, u must go back to school. There was no time i reffered my Igbo people as Almighty, such word is being reserve for Almighty God. All what i said was that my igbo people are mighty tribe and such words has to be given to anyone that is outstanding in his or chosen career. Then if u fill to challenge me,name ur home town and be proud to own up very well if ur re a man enough to encounter my person. That should serve us more better on line. Effeminate men like u supposed not to appear in a parliament of this magnitude be warned. Let me hear from u pls i,m earnestly waiting.

  36. Over to u two i mean oweri nchiwude. U don’t even know much about history. U opened ur trash mouth n said Abuja was built by alex ekuweme, when was that. When he was Vp he was unable to buy oridnary pen in his office without President Shagari who was his boss say so emember. Now how could he have done what u said he did. One thing i like about u jews is that u like to claim good thing for urself. Two u said Our sage Awo used ur money he stole to educate us, it’s show that u’ve no read ur history properly cos if u’ve u would have foundout that free education had being in our region western region before ur people embarked on there sucidal mission. By de way, all ur leader that ever led u, they all chopped ur money how come they never even try to us part of their ill gotten fund to help relocate u to ur region or to develop ur region like south west. U’re now trying to claim lagos n de rest of south west as urs. Wonder shall never end. Are u guys no longer standing on ur aburi n ur biafra? What is going to happen to Lagos when u get ur aburi, do u want to take it with u. Over to chiwude, u ‘re all hipo, u all proclaim to want de truth to be told but when somebody tell u de truth u can’t handle it. Go n ask ur oldman if he had not be claimed by ur stupid biafra war to tell u de truth about what u ibos did to Calabar n de rest of south south n most importantly their women. Ask ur elders to tell u idiot about de money raised for war’s amunition, de contract was awarded to Ojukwu’s relative, de moment he got de money, he never step on Nigeria soil until after u’ve lost de war and he was never made to account for de money till date. They 419 u guys. U want more facts?, de relief items that were sent to u by Red Cross eventhough they were to ur leaders freely to be distributed to ur people who were in bad conditions, u really want to know what leaders did with these free goods? Ur leaders sold them to ur papa, hnnnn,ibos and money!!! . U still want more facts, what happened to de foods thatSage Awo sent to u guys? Ojukwu n ur leaders rejected them n de litle that got through were highjacked by biafrans army that was de reason after de war, they all look fresh asmorning flowers. How come u expect ur enemies to feed u . After ur declaration of biafra, ,Nigeria never for one beleive u will beg for food. In Yorubaland we always pray that God will never put us in a position where we will beg to eat our enemies foods,Know what i mean?m. Nigeria can do without u guys, i hope u know that but can u do without nigeria? I know u can’t. I just hope u get both ur “aburi n biafra” that’s when u will findout that nigeria is better than ur biafra.

  37. It is in ur blood to be rebelious. Ain’t u brothers? U started sending bulets to one another(oweri n chiwude). Pls i like de show u too are putting on. Want more it.

  38. Chiwude are u begging me to stop given u more facts about biafra n de amount of actrocities ur biafran army committed. Face de fact, in war, people die n innocent starv nothing can change that facts. De only thing that can perhaps change that is not to start war in de first place. But from what u said to me u’re still full of urself. U still want to fight, u said u will finish Yorubas. Can u really do that? U know it’s not possible not in a million years. We will fight u with brains n intellects. All u have is mouth. Remember what we did to u at “ORE” de present Ondo State? Don’t push ur luck too much. Try n face. Boko Haram for now. Even though BH are killing u in de north it never occoure to u to leave de place, in as much as there is money to be made,u will rather being killed than to leave. Hnnnnnnnnnn…ibos and money. All de time u talk about 2million of biafran that died during de war, that is ur statistic.

  39. Okochi or whatever u call urself,perhaps u need a pair of glssess, i never call u what u’re not. I still stand on all that i wrote about u cos they are facts. I did not call ur race animal. With all ur cursing on Yorubas i bet u’re still getting ur bread from south west. Maybe it’s best if u leave for ur God forbid jew region. Ain’t ashame for calling urself what u’re not(Nigeria Jew) u people make me sick. if u want to rule in 2015 u better try n find one candidate, but know u will never unite and even if u do, where can u find de person. de only one i can think of which is senator chris ngige but u people will never give him light of de day. in fact, ur don pafuka

  40. F kalu, urs don pafuka. Which school do u send ur kids? De only school u send ur kids to after their elementry school is school of motor patrs at Ladipo, hawking at traffic spots and how to make money at all cost not minding if they are 419,armed robbers ritualist and slut. Have u no shame at all.

  41. @HARUNA,BAMIDELE,KOLA AMODU,SIR Nwabufo okoye,mojekwu uche,may God punish all of you for castigating annie Okonkwo.UR FATHERS AND GENERATIONS COMBINED WIL NEVER SHOW ANNIE’S generousity and kindnes!!.

    • It am It took d Israelites 430yrs of noisemaking to leave under d leadership of Moses even wen all hope seemed lost.Hitler wanted wiping away d jews from d face d earth but God made him to die shamefully.Before 1945,there was notin like Israel on d map of d world but God brot to pass.D present Israel was a desert but today leads d world in agriculture.Combination of awo n gowon cldnt exterminate d Ibos durin d war.Which tribe in nigeria can loose 3million pple after complete destructn and still lead in development and wealth?If d Ibos are armed robbers and kidnappers,nigeria shld jettison dem and allow dem to go.Well,I just petty d yorubas dat hav bin cursed wit dirtiness and ugliness.

  42. I stood by my words are all nothing but the truth.All Ibos should go to hell.
    Let the angels of fire handle any Ibo have contentions against me.

  43. @ Kola Amodu, it,s the same language that ruined ur bro MKO ABIOLA, when he boosted that ” he can do without the Igbos to win 1993 presidential election ” but my people replied accordingly to him that, he MKO ABIOLA will win but he will not be on that seat. You can vividly see reason why i do reffer them mighty tribe because Igbos faces every challenges that comes to them without contradictions. U re an empty skull, DR ALEX EKWUEME, structured Abuja master plan. No other person was constracted on that job except him. As for chiwude whom u re joining issues with before me, i,m not crucifying him because he thought i was using derogatory language against ur people. He was even trying to advise me to tread softly on ur people which can be viewed as a good mediator and u failed to reason properly. Now, do u know that ur so called sage has no human face? Have u asked urself what side of eternity is he enjoying. He stole my people,s money in the then backlays bank to gave all of u free education. Did u read history at all in school?

  44. Owerri u really want de truth, then i will open de gate of hell for u ibos. One, ur. People started started de c.war cos young ibos army office staged de first coup n in de process killed sir ahadu Bello, Akintola n Okotie Ebor, but surprisingly,ur brother who was de fourth premier of de eastern region was not kill n that was de reason de Hausa/Fulani n de north started de killing field of ibos in de north and hence de second coup of July same year that fell ur A. Irosy. Tell me something,do u really think that Hausa are stupid n that they will not avenge de death of there leader. If u all think that then u’re more fool than u look. Opara escaped cos kinsman told him to run n what do u call that( betrayal). Two, yorubas is de only friend u have in nigeria, why? Cos remember lots of yorubas fought on behalf of u ibos cos they were of de opinion that they don’t like de second coup that de not staged. Am talking about Victor Banjo, Ademulegun to mention but few what about what some good sons of yorubas like Prof. Wole Soyinka did. Before i forget, can u compare any of ur son with that galant yoruba soldier, am talking of one n only Col. Adekunle Francis Fajuyi. Opted to die for Irosy n nigeria. Even the northern soldier that staged de coup told him blankly that they are not after him (Fajuyi) but de man (Fajuyi) will not let go of ur irosy. What dose that tell u about yorubas,blockhead owerri?. It was u ibos that caused de war, if de 1st coup had not been staged Hausa would not have started de slaughtering of de ibos in de north n if M.Opara had being killed like other premier perhaps Hausa/Fulani would not have thought it was ideals of ibos to wipe off there leaders remember u also killed Balewa. Moreover, most of u don’t even know what de aburi is all about. During de aburi conference,Sage Awo bade it clear to ur leaders that if i qoute”(de condition of living in nigeria should become unbearable in nigeria if east decide to leave nigeria entity then yorubas will follow”). As soon as they arrived home from aburi, Ojukwu wanted to take east out of nigeria. On de eve of ur decaration of ur biafra, Ojukwu called sage Awo to inform him that he was taken east out of nigeria but Sage told him that this condition was (still bearable) but ojukwu insisted that ibos are leaving. Sage Awo made it clear to ojukwu then,if ibos leave nigeria yorubas will not n will never follow de ibos. I bet ur papa will never have de gut to tell u that truth. Moreso, part of de reason ojukwu was in haste to declear biafran republic was for u ibos to be able to corner south south black gold(oil) n dominate de Ijaws. Ur selfishness n greedness know nolimit. When de war was tough for de biafrans, ur leader(ojukwu) took away his family n ran away to ivory coast mainwhile innocent ibos were being killed either through mighty firepower of nigerian army lack of foods. When ojukwu second in command saw all thesecan really remember his name maybe Gen.Effiong,then he waved white flag. What did ojukwu did on hearing that biafran soldiers had surrenders he went bannana. He said he would never have surrendered if he was home, forgetten that nobody forced to leave biafra. What a coward!. Remember ibos forced south south to joinbiafra. About 2million u always claim to have died,how did u all arrived at that figure? . Did u record de nubers of all of them n if that’s case could u pls show de record to de world. All what u’re say about ur 2million deadchildren are not true. Josef Starlin once said that” one death is a tragedy,but a million death is just a statistic”. Ur claim of 2million death is just apropaganda. On de issue of 20 pounds,don’t u know that u’ve got to pay for the pain u caused nigerians. That was ur” war reparation”. It’s high time u start moving back to ur jungle, who know maybe that will help u to develop ur bush. U don’t know what OBJ did for u when he was de head of state, one he provided u with UPE(univasal primary education) when was made de president he also introduced UBE(univasal basic education). What about MMA airports de seaports Lagos Ibadan express, by de way it was Muritala n OBJ that founded Abuja . He OBJ decided how Abuja should look like i mean de kind of building to be built. Do u still want more education on this issue. When get home call ur papa n ask him to tell u de truth about de whole thing . He will coroborate me if he were to be ano honourable man, but i doubt he will cos u don’t know de meaning of honour. Yorubas are like Moon in de sky, we give light to everybody. Ibos are like stars, no amount of light ur stars give,will never be as bright as that of Yorubas Moon. In whatever u accomplished today in nigeria, yorubas has being there before u they will always be at ur front cos head will never become tail. We are de only tribe in this nation that love peace n it is not cos we are weak. That’s who we are. We are not rebellious like u we are always grateful to what we have n we feel for our name n we honourable race. Owerri can u honestly say all these about ur people? No can’t. U still want more all have said so far are facts not ficitions. U said ur Orji ‘alu gave N100million to OBJ, where did he get de money from is that not part of de money he should have used develop n educate ur people. U should be ashame of ur self for saying that. We are waitting for de day u will get ur aburi n biafra at least u will carry ur second rate goods out of our country. U’re just like ur goods nigerian jews. Finito.

  45. Allah help u Haruna Sako ibos alway underestimate u guys, that’s why they’ve alway lose at de end . They like to lick ur asses sako make sure u always keep them there. Al u need to do to them is to throw them de crumble of what u’re eating n they will all fall for it or u can show them money. Once they se de colour of money, nothing i mean nothing they wouldn’t do for money. They will sell their wife,children,papa n mama n infact de entire family. Hnnnnnnnn…”IBOS n MONEY. So pls Haruna Sako, with all their noise come 2015 all u have to do is to show them de colour of de money n then u don capture them . Once do that presidency is urs come 2015.

  46. @ Mr KOLA AMODU, pls i want to ask you a question. Are you among those that benefited from the so called free education from that wicked murderer Awolowo? Ur articles, tenses, lexicons, doesn’t portray u as one that went to school for the first place. It is a shame that the Fulani herds man who were not opportuned to benefit such free education writes better English than you. You re a disgrace to your entire race.

  47. Members of the NASS, create Njaba state as the sixth state in the southeast. It is the most viable proposal for state in the southeast for now. The fifth state in the southeast, Ebonyi, was created from Abia and Enugu states. So no argument that a sixth state must come from Imo and Anambra states, or from Imo state alone as population, contiguity and viability factors favour Njaba state.

  48. Is that de best u can say to all de facts have given u. I was expecting u to call my bluf about all de facts, u agreed with me cos i have just given it to u. I bet u’re ashame cos ur oldman kept all these facts from u, but i will still blame u for not taken ur time to look for fact. Afterall u’re a profesor of english language, or are u not?. U really think u have big mouth, but u are just a pussycat. I can see that u’ve started wetting ur pants, but don’t be scared i will not open de gate of hell for u yet, until u open ur stupid stinking mouth. Blockhead.

  49. Don,t expect me to join issues with a bloody illiterate like u. U have no reasonable facts on your table to be discussed. First graduate from your adult education that was built by your late murderer then, you can call me for a nation wide debate bordering on Nigeria political matters, bye.

  50. NATHAN ONYEKWERE FROM CHINA on

    this will show you the level of injustice IGBOS are passing through if the rest os the region have some 6 some 7 state why only south east 5 state FG do some thing with out delay, forget the the kola and amudu’s comment, they are only confirming the real true fact, is no loger news that the IGBOS are blessed with inteligent men and has technology soon they are going to be as industrlised as china, kola and amudu i bet you surely you must one day beg for visa to come to IGBO land insarch for either sperparts or building materials.
