Nigeria; Imo Youths Angry Over Diversion Of Amnesty Funds, Stones Gov Okorocha's Wife Convoy!

The Chairperson of Southern Governor's Wife Forum, Nneoma Okorocha was on a routine tour of dilapidated school buildings in Ohaji Egbema LGA in her capacity as the Chairman of the Amnesty Committee Constituted by her Husband, Governor Rochas Okorocha when her convoy was attacked by youths on February 10th.

Politics Nigeria learnt that Mrs Okorocha's itinerary met stiff resistance in Awarra part of Ohaji/Egbema when aggrieved youths of the area attacked her convoy. Apart from jeers and boos which greeted her convoy, stones and dangerous items were thrown at the vehicles that led her to the place.

On noticing that it was the convoy of the wife of the Governor who came in company of political leaders in the area, youths started hurling dangerous weapons at them forcing the cars to make a U-turn. The first lady's convoy, sensing danger, sped away quickly before torrents of stones landed at their vehicles. Some unlucky persons who were part of the convoy did not escape unhurt as part of their vehicles were damaged by flying missiles.

Okorocha's wife who was hurt and disappointed by the action of the rampaging youths was said to have expressed dissatisfaction with the APC leadership in the area led by the Deputy Chief of Staff ( Operations) for failure to be fully incharge and control the youths.

A member of the ISOPADEC Board from the Awarra Court Area, (name withheld) was also not lucky, as part of his vehicle was bashed by the rampaging youths who pursued the convoy until it left the community.

Politics Nigeria further discovered that the spontaneous reaction of the youths was based on the non fulfilment of several promises the Okorocha government made to the people since it came into power in 2011. Apart from the absence of electricity after years government assured of power supply, the area lacks other basic amenities like road, pipe borne water, health centres and good schools.

Investigation revealed that the people of Ohaji /Egbema witnessed public power supply before Okorocha came into power in 2011, but his entry to government house brought darkness to the area. The public power supply ISOPADEC paid in the past was stopped by Okorocha forcing PHCN /EEDC to stop power supply. The Governor had kicked against the state paying PHCN bills for a certain area.

More annoying to the people that warranted the violent conduct is the non fulfilment of the promises made to the repentant militants when they surrendered arms under the state government Amnesty Programme sometime last year. The Amnesty programme is under the watch of Nneoma Okorocha as the Chairman and Hon Kingsley Chima Uju, Deputy Chief of Staff from the Area as Vice Chairman.

But the aggressive youths accused the state government of deceit and using the Amnesty programme as a conduit pipe to siphon the 13% Oil derivation money paid into ISOPADEC account.

The aggressive youths further accused the state government of not instituting any measure to not only rehabilitate the repentant militants but also rehabilitate them after surrendering arms.

It would be recalled that at a celebrated occasion, armed youths and cultists surrendered their arms to embrace Amnesty Programme of the State government. Eight months after, nothing has come out of it fuelling speculations that the repentant militants have been tricked in the process.

Worried by the development, the government announced that it has paid N200 million to PHCN for reconnection of the area with power supply and another N20 million to rehabilitate the Ex- militants. With politicsngr.com

According to news reports, Virgin Atlantic Airways has laid off all their Nigerian cabin crew. They were only given three weeks notice and no severance package regardless of length of service will be paid. The air-hostesses they sacked were about 20 in number. The company closed down their Nigerian call centre last year and let go of all the Nigerian staffers. The Owner, you would recall had said sometime in 2012, he was weary of doing business in Nigeria. Here is an extract from a statement Richard Branson issued in 2012 after the ill-fated footsteps he took by setting up a new airline in conjunction with the Nigerian government; “We fought daily battle against government agents who wanted to daily make fortune from us, politicians who saw the government 49% as a meal to seek for all kinds of favour…watchdogs (regulatory body) that didn’t know what to do and persistently asking for bribes at any point…Nigeria people are generally nice but the politicians are very insane…that may …

The Semen-Drinking Sambian Tribe Of Papua New Guinea!

To become a man in this primitive Sambian tribe in Papua New Guinea, boys are removed from the presence of all females at the age of seven, living with other males for ten years. The idea here is to convince everyone in the village that he can live without women.The isolation they encounter not only prevent the boys from having any sexual activities with women, but also from seducing, or being seduced by married women. During the ten years, the skin is pierced to remove any contamination brought upon by women. For the same reason, a sharp stick is inserted into the child’s nostrils until he bleeds profusely. They also regularly incur vomiting caused by consuming large amounts of sugarcane.
Older men now tell the boys that the bachelors (warriors) are going to copulate with them orally in order to make them grow. Throughout the six stages of the tribe’s rite of passage, the boy will perform fellatio (blowjob) to these warriors to, ironically, prove he is a real man. Because shoving manh…

Donald Trump Blasts President Buhari, Says His Priority Is The Full Introduction Of Islam, The Annihilation Of His Political Opponents And Absolute Extermination Of The People Of The Old Eastern Nigeria.

I Trust the US Republican presidential hopeful for being blunt! He said; ''no sensible president continuously travels round the globe while his country is in terrible hardship and economic mess.''
He continued; ''It can only happen in Nigeria where all that matters to the President is the full introduction of Islam, annihilation of his political opponents and absolute extermination of the people of the old Eastern Nigeria
Buhari, prior to his questionable victory at the polls as the President of Nigeria made lots of promises which he has obviously failed to keep and in most cases denied.
As a matter of fact, change could either be ‘positive’ OR ‘negative. To the earlier misconception of Nigerians and current state of the economy as a result of initiation of impracticable economic policies, it wouldn’t be wrong to assert that what president Muhammadu Buhari and his All Progressives Congress promised Nigerians was a NEGATIVE CHANGE.
If Nigeria is a country made up of…
