|Politics / Re: INEC Declares Uwajumogu Of APC Winner Of Imo Senatorial Re-run Election by Abagworo(m): 6:52pm|
Those political players deserve to be tamed and Okorocha has done that. Top politicians in Imo State today have age range of mostly 25 to 45 years and its good. Secondly by December this year the only visible thing by any past leader will be New Owerri Secretariat by Udenwa. The rest will be completely erased. So everything visible in Imo State was done by Okorocha.

After the rain there must be flooding but the issue is if it stays flooded for 2 days or more.
|Politics / Re: Igbo Should Stop Thinking About Presidency In 2019 Okorocha by Abagworo(m): 6:41pm|
Rochas Okorocha championed Igbo Presidency in 2015 but most Igbos said no Igbo man should contest against Jonathan because they thought Jonathan could defeat Buhari but that was the worst political calculation ever as even a nursery pupil knows nobody in Nigeria can defeat Buhari. Nobody can win Buhari in 2019 either so Ndigbo should support him so that in 2023 he will support Igbo Presidency.
|Politics / Re: Ijaws Not Behind Attacks On Lagos, Ogun – IYC by Abagworo(m): 6:27pm|
Ijaws are intelligent and are trying to avoid the death of millions of Ijaws while Igbos are begging death to come. What the IYC President said is like Ohaneze youth President saying IPOB are not Igbos.
Ndigbo should now be wise enough to understand the antecedents. It's obvious that should any war start Ijaws will immediately declare their support for one Nigeria while Igbos will die naively. I pray for my people.

You people said this same thing but still lost in 2015 to Okorocha despite FG patronage. Nobody hates APC in Imo State except PDP members.
|Politics / Re: Military Descends On Arepo Vandals Hideout In Operation Awathe by Abagworo(m): 10:05am|
This is a tip of the iceberg compared to what vould happen if Ijaw declares war on Nigeria by refusing to stop pipeline bombing. I still advice their leaders not to make mistakes Igbos made in 1967 to avoid death of millions of people. If 30 houses could be destroyed in a day by one or 2 aircrafts what would happen if 50 aircrafts bombard an area for 3 years. God help those motivating NDA to come to their senses before it's too late.

|Politics / Re: #imoreun: APC Sweep Polls, As INEC Declares Uwajumogu Senator Elect by Abagworo(m): 9:55am|
There was little ot no rigging. I confirmed from people on ground including PDP members. PDP leaders and members worked against one another instead of in unity. The people themselves preferred Uwajumogu for many reasons including humility. He was born into a wealthy home though.
|Politics / Re: #imoreun: APC Sweep Polls, As INEC Declares Uwajumogu Senator Elect by Abagworo(m): 9:49am|
Many of them live in Imo State but are PDP members. Like I've written severally when you visit Imo State and jam them they will look for every means possible to discredit Okorocha or demystify his achievements by showing you the bad part only. If you visit and jam APC loyalists they will equally show you mostly the good part but I as a regular visitor can tell you that Okorocha has 70% rating in terms of politics and performance but 20% rating in terms of Igbo interest. The reason his rating is low in that aspect is because of blackmail by Radio biagra who have persistently lied to the public that Rochas is the one blocking them from getting biagra. Imo villagers love Biafra with passion but equally like Okorocha.
For PDP to defeat Rochas their campaign will be based on the lie that Biafra will be realised and if the people are gullible enough to believe them.

|Politics / Re: RE: Adaure4ever, One Of The Sins Of Rochas Okorocha by Abagworo(m): 7:17am|
Ekweremadu came with his troubles to Imo State and picked up a challenge. It is nothing personal because had he decamped to APC all these while he would have been an Igbo voice in APC alongside Okorocha but unlike Okorocha he was scared of the old powers in the Southeast . Common sense tells us that since Southeast now has an APC Senator he will replace Ekweremadu.

|Politics / Re: Youths Burn Lawman Duruji's Car As He Was Caught With Ballot Papers In Imo by Abagworo(m): 10:56pm On Jul 28|
The true story is that there was riot at a place called Orieagu by aggrieved PDP members which the vehicle ran into. No ballot box or whatsoever was inside the car. Some people claim the thugs involved came from a neighbouring LGA not even involved in the election. Let us watch events unfold.
|Politics / Re: Youths Burn Lawman Duruji's Car As He Was Caught With Ballot Papers In Imo by Abagworo(m): 10:46pm On Jul 28|
This story sounded like cooked up lie when it was first posted on Facebook. They claimed the owner burnt his own car after he was sighted near the polling bootg but nothing proves that. My guess is that it was more or less an attack by thugs against an opponent and nothing more. Hopefully we shall get to know the truth by tomorrow.

You are not based in Rivers State because if you do you would have heard during one of Amaechi's community interactions when he admitted deficiency in funds has made him start using the savings. He could not save up to that because of economic situation and Rivers State's high recurrent expenditures.
|Politics / Re: Update On Imo North Senatorial Rerun by Abagworo(m): 9:19pm On Jul 28|
That will be good for APC in Southeast as we get a real DSP. On a side note come 2019 Presidential elections, APC will score 90% in Imo State. Whoever doubts should quote me.

I will say it a million times over that what Amaechi left on ground in Rivers State is almost equivalent to the entire funds he got in 8 years. His profit cannot be more than 10billion.

Will you swallow your words later? We've had all these arguments in the past and I kept coming out victorious. This includes Buhari defeating Jonathan and Okorocha winning reelection.
|Family / Re: The Son My Late Dad Had Out Of Wedlock Locked My Mum Out Of Our House, Pls Advis by Abagworo(m): 2:50pm On Jul 28|
People distort Igbo culture a lot. The house involved if its on an inherited land from your ancestors in your village means it is exclusively the boy's inheritance alongside his sibblings cohabiting until they get married. However if the said house is in Lagos, Aba, Onitsha, Kano etc. then it belongs to your Mum till death and can be willed to whoever she desires.
That said I believe the man has been influenced by an external force and not acting out of self will. Nobody can do that with clear eyes and if indeed it has gotten this far then everyone should be careful.

Lest you are suffering from amnesia
Nigerians should brace for tougher economic times
ahead, the Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala,
has said as crude oil prices slipped to a four year low
At the end of the Federation Accounts Allocation
Committee (FAAC) meeting for September, Federal,
States and Local Governments were only able to go
home with N603.5 billion allocation after they
resolved to borrow about $2.76 billion from the
Excess Crude Revenue Account to augment shortfall
in revenue generated during the period.
The Federal Government had attributed the declining
revenues to the fall in prices at the international oil
After drawing from the ECA, Minister of State for
Finance, Bashir Yuguda, said the balance in the
account had dropped further from $4.1 billion to
about $1.34 billion at the moment.
But Mrs. Okonjo-Iweala said in Lagos on Tuesday
that the economic indicators show there are tougher
Though she said the country’s External Reserves rose
from $36.6billion at the end of June to $39.48billion
by October 16, and the balance in the Sovereign
Wealth Fund at $1.55billion, accruals from oil
exports have been poor.
According to her, Nigeria would begin to feel the
impact of the dropping oil prices at the international
oil market, which commenced since the first half of
“The country must brace up for tougher times
ahead”, she said. “We need to review our
expenditures and build economic buffers through
budgets that would be based on modest oil prices.”
She underlined the importance of a sound macro-
economic management to Nigeria at this time,
particularly the need to plug all revenue leakages.
“We have not yet seen the impact of the falling oil
prices in Nigeria. It will start this month. We have to
drive the non-oil revenue base to be able to weather
the storm that is coming,” the Minister said.
The minister said the fall in the prices of export
commodities such as gold, iron ore and agricultural
produce such as cocoa, cotton and coffee was bound
to affect most African economies, which relied on
commodity export for the sustenance of their

Uyo has nothing to compare with Kano unless in terms if serenity. Calabar is beautiful like Enugu and Owerri but nothing spectacular in terms of infrastructure. Maybe you had beauty in mind while typing. Port Harcourt is not beautiful but very advanced in infrastructure compared with Calabar. Onne alone is awesome not to talk of Rainbow town or old GRA.

By the grace of God nobody in your kindred is as blessed as God blessed me. I thank God for that. Till today Nnamdi Azikiwe is considered as saboteur among pro-Biafran Igbos and Onitsha people are generally hated by other Anambrians. If you need some evidence I can get for you.
Okorocha honoured them as great Igbo men devoid of hate as is the case of you Anambrians who would have spoiled for war if Obiano did that for Igbo heroes from other States.
The free education in Imo State has been funded by Okorocha's security votes and a large chunk of Imo State treasury. He has maintained it till date despite the economic downturn in Nigeria.
