“Self-Determination Inevitable Without Restructuring” – Ohanaeze

Ohanaeze Press Release
….Wants the Acting President to rise to the Challenge
The President General of Ndigbo apex body, the Ohanaeze, Chief John Nnia Nwodo has said that the continued agitation of Igbo youths across the country is a byproduct of persistent injustice and marginalization arising from bad leadership and unjust structure of the country’s polity.
Chief Nwodo who spoke as a guest at the Channels talk show program, the Sunrise on Monday said that the various restiveness across the country is an indication of an unworkable political system that should be revisited.
The Ohanaeze boss who bemoaned the rising hate against Ndigbo in the country rolled out the list of some Igbo citizens murdered and whose goods worth millions of Naira were looted across the country without any reasonable response from the government.
He said that the current structure of the country is not tuned for development and wondered why the Conference of 2014 is not being revisited.
When asked why Ohanaeze did not oppose the sit- at -home order called by the Biafra agitators, Chief Nwodo said it couldn’t have since they were not by sitting at home, violating any known Nigeria law in mourning their over 3m kith and kins who died during the war with half of them dying of hunger and starvation.
On the position of Ohanaeze on the Biafra agitation, Chief Nwodo said that the apex body has not endorsed the secession struggle but cannot stop the agitators more so when the issues that compelled them to remain unattended to.
The Ohanaeze leader said that what Ndigbo want is a Nigeria of equal ownership not where some see the country as their empire and the rest as a conquered territory.
He described as unfortunate the conspicuous absence of the President at this time that calls for astute leadership for the country and advised the Acting President to rise up to the challenge and make some consultations on how to move this country forward.
Ohanaeze boss remarked that nothing can be more evident of bad leadership in the country than that after the lawless statement from Arewa youths that was greeted with wide condemnation from reasonable minds in the North, Middle Belt, South West and South South, no arrest has so far been made, rather the people are daring the authorities.
Chief Nwodo described as worrisome the fact that after such grave utterance from the northern youths, that touched on national security, the Federal government is yet to act, the Inspector General who called his Commissioners across the country to read a riot act is yet to make any arrest.
On the conflicting statements from Ohanaeze Ndigbo on the issue, Chief Nwodo wondered why the media continues to publish utterances from other voices when he as President General with his cabinet has spoken on an issue.

Virgin Atlantic Airways Exits Nigerian Market, Sacks All Nigerian Cabin Crew, Close Down Call Centre

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…
