|Politics / Re: AWKA: A Capital City In Race To Catch Up With Others by Abagworo(m): 5:23pm|
The problem with you Chino is that you believe truth can be covered or lies can live long. You've written times without number that Peter Obi tarred all the rural roads in Anambra but yet you are now defending same Peter Obi with regards to Awka North.
Like I wrote earlier, if Peter Obi worked, Obiano wouldn't have much to worry about like he's doing today.

Making Awka a befitting capital
Somebody who has been to other state capitals would visibly be disappointed on visiting Awka, the Anambra State capital.
Twenty-three years after it became a capital city, Awka remains a shadow of a state capital, lacking in the attractions usually associated with a city enjoying such a nomenclature.
Unlike other sister capital cities in the South-East like Enugu and Owerri, Awka remains a glorified village.
To worsen the situation, successive governments in the state, including the immediate past administration visibly did nothing to improve the status of the Anambra State capital.
This explains why 23 years after it became the Anambra capital, many civil servants in the state still prefer to come to work in Awka from Enugu, which used to be the capital of old Anambra State until Enugu State was created by General Ibrahim Babangida military administration in 1991.
Some civil servants who cannot cope with the rigours of operating from Enugu even prefer to operate from their villages, see nothing different between the villages and the capital city.
The story is the same for the political class in Anambra State including commissioners and other state government appointees, federal and state lawmakers, ministers and other top government functionaries.
Most of these Anambra politicians including the acclaimed godfathers own palatial mansions in Enugu and yet cannot even boast of a bungalow in Awka.

achi4u: Is it confessional statement or FACT!
Council of Knights in Anglican Communion, Mgbakwu Archdeaconry, and Ofemmili Archdeaconry, both in Awka North local government area, Awka Diocese, Anambra state yesterday sent a Save Our Souls (SOS) call to the Anambra state Governor, Chief Willie Obiano to as a matter of urgent public important come to the rescue of people of Awka North local government area with tarred roads as they have been cut off from the rest of the state.
The council of knights literally wept as they trekked miles and others who could afford it spent about N2, 000 on motorcycle known as Okada to be able to attend their Bi-monthly council of knights meeting at Urum community from Awba –Ofemili and other communities in the two Archdeaconry in Awka North.
The lamented that as schools have resumed that it was hell for teachers in the rural communities to get to their destinations and once it rains they would not attend to their pupils and students which according to them is a disservice to the future leaders who have been marginalized in almost everything infrastructure.
The communities that formed the Mgbakwu and Ofemmili Archdeaconries are Amanuke, Awba-Ofemmili, Mgbakwu , Isu-Aniocha and Urum, as well as Ugbene, Ugbenu , Ebenebe ,Achalla and Amansea.
In Sir Enemuo’s words ,”we the people of Awka North have contributed immensely in voting in an APGA candidate to be governor. Are the people of Awka North not from the state? None of the roads that lead to Amanuke and Urum is motorable. The same is applicable to the roads from Ugbene to Amanuke and from Achalla to Ugbene as well as Achalla to Urum to Amanuke even that of Awba –Ofemmili had two cars if not more by now stuck their for days now as I speak to you because no vehicle can enter that community now or go out. Everybody is trapped and we need urgent government intervention. I am appealing to Governor Obiano to as a mater of urgency intervene and save us this agony of a people’’, he noted.

olodoowoh: shanty anambra
The aim of this thread is to hide the reality that Awka is backward and cannot even measure up to Orlu in Imo State as written in the dailies. Reality is a biiitch. So please don't join them in the madness.
|Politics / Re: Photos Of Under-Development and Rot In Imo State Capital Owerri by Abagworo(m): 4:04pm|
I like Obiano like I told you on another thread even though his election was flawed. He is really trying to do something. As for Okorocha, he has done a lot especially 100% scholarship from Primary to University. It takes a lot of sacrifice to do that. I believe Obiano will follow suit in the nearest future and also renovate the dilapidated schools scattered across Anambra State which Obi neglected.
|Politics / Re: Photos Of Under-Development and Rot In Imo State Capital Owerri by Abagworo(m): 3:47pm|
Mazi Peter Obi skating along one of his legacy roads. This is one of the most popular pictures. Like I promised I won't engage Chino in mudslinging . That I saw a full article on Awka and posted is same as the ones from Aba or elsewhere and not my making.
|Politics / Re: Shekau Appears To Be Alive In Newly Released Video by Abagworo(m): 1:36pm|
What then explains the sudden turn around in the Boko Haram saga? They are obviously short of ammunitions as a result of the inability of their sponsors to procure from the black market. That's my personal view for now until proven otherwise.
|Politics / Re: AWKA: A Capital City In Race To Catch Up With Others by Abagworo(m): 1:25pm|
Notice that I did not post any pictures. The most I will do is to mention roads or areas like Ifite-Awka etc. My aim is to say the truth about Peter Obi and the attempts by his disciples to deceive people with lies.
|Politics / Re: Shekau Appears To Be Alive In Newly Released Video by Abagworo(m): 1:21pm|
Collynzo22: One good thing aboud the video though is that boko haram have really been depleted in the area of armoury. Instead of standing in front of APCs like before he stood in front of worn out pick ups.
I think the reason is because the 9.3 million Dollars meant for purchase of more arms for them was seized. With the approval of more money for defence, I see their sponsors acquiring jet fighters soon.

thewarrior72: abagworo You bastarrrrrrd ikwerre man masking as igbo, what u are looking for u will soon have it in hundred folds. Anyways, I pity ur one city imo state
Tell that to Peter Obi. I remain the only true Igbo man with our interest at heart. By the time you add his neglect of Awka to the number of MASSOB members killed and dumped in Ezu river, you will thank me.
|Politics / Re: Shekau Appears To Be Alive In Newly Released Video by Abagworo(m): 1:14pm|
That guy killed is not Shekau. This drama is getting too foreign like. There's a foreign power hitting us.

Nobleval: the link you posted said 26 Dec 2013 That news is stale look for the latest one.

Boko Haram is a well orchestrated drama. I'm now beginning to doubt reports not coming from foreign countries as Nigeria is full of lies and deceit.

Shekau is anybody with beards and camouflage. It is more like a title than a man.
|Culture / Re: The Social Prejudices Between Oratta(owerri) And Isu Groups Of Igboland. by Abagworo(m): 11:48am|
The forgotten or scattered ancestry of Igbos makes some assumptions or hypothesis form part of most views expressed by Igbo historians. I personally believe that the "Isu" term is same as "Isoma" or "Isuama" and is related to language. "People that speak purer Igbo" . In Igbo language to speak Igbo means "Isu Igbo" and language is "asusu" or "okwu" but I'll go with "asusu" here because the backbone of it is "su" of "isu".
To speak well is "Isuma". I believe the language known today as Igbo is likely original Isu language and as you depart from that area so do we have variations.
Isu etche Rivers
Isu Onicha Ebonyi
The term Isu occurs as much as the term "Onicha", "Ihite", "Itu", "Nkanu/Akanu" and some other names which I consider tribe-related across Igboland. Itu I believe belongs to same Itu found today in Akwa-Ibom that does not speak Igbo. The Isu belongs to same Isu found everywhere.

|Romance / Re: Can You Marry Someone Who Has A Child? by Abagworo(m): 11:10am|
databoy247: I have often been in hot conversations with other peeps, and most of them sound like it's a taboo to get married to a lady who has a child (maybe out of wedlock). It's usually cool when they as guys having one or two kids wants a lady to get married to them but when its the reverse, na war.
Tradition holds nothing against it in Igboland where I come from. Christianity brought about so many hypocritical assumptions that has made many not to accept and face the reality that single motherhood is part of the society. There is nothing wrong with marrying a single mother except you are not capable enough to take care of mother and child.

You guys areattacking the OP for no reason. He never supported Orji and he even made it clear he's anti-Orji. He only opened a thread to showcase the potentials of Abia and its nothing bad.

Stop spreading falsehood. It has been unanimously agreed that Aba has been completely neglected under Theodore Orji.

chinazaekperem2: I seem to have pics from majorly umuahia, abagworo come give us nice pics of aba
Unfortunately I'm incapacitated in getting Aba pictures. What I have to say is that 80% of the pictures circulating online about Aba are more than 10 years old and were taken during Orji Kalu regime. I get my Aba pictures from skyscrapercity and nothing new has been posted there for a while.

Thank God he was arrested in Cameroun. They should never hand him over to Nigeria or he might be killed in order to cover up the obvious sponsors. I can't wait for the man to mention Nigerian names and I am 100% certain where these men are affiliated.

Akpors came to church for thanksgiving that he has bought a car. He was seen at the altar carrying two tyres and a radio set. He took the mic and thanked all for his successes and while commissioning his new tyres and radio set he announced to the congregation that he will buy the remaining parts of the car in near future. Congratulations Mr Akpos.

vanbonattel: But okoroacha is working very hard, dude bought 5 bags of cement to repair the whole of imsu junction with four roadside labourer
I've told you guys to relax this nonsense and face the truth. My major annoyance with these sort of threads is that it is biased and trying to put Okorocha under absolute scrutiny while same standards is not applied to Jonathan or even Sullivan that the poster tried to claim has solved all the bad roads in Enugu.
|Politics / Re: How We Ended Up In A Man Made River In Owerri(enugu To Owerri) by Abagworo(m): 1:55pm On Sep 29|
For the interest of Igboland let us end this thread and stop smear campaigns of any sort. Okorocha has the right to become President and is probably the best Governor right now going by the number of years and the amount he receives as well as IGR generating capacity of his State. It does us no good to be searching for dirt in an old woman's loin cloth just because of political affiliation. It is best to either say the truth or lodge complaints where more is needed.
|Politics / Re: How We Ended Up In A Man Made River In Owerri(enugu To Owerri) by Abagworo(m): 1:31pm On Sep 29|
Obynobyl: its not because of Jonathan, its a plain fact. The two cities cannot be compared, I've been to both of them and I can authoritatively tell you Enugu is miles ahead of Owerri,over 98% of the roads in Enugu are tarred to the extent that the street before mine has been tarred twice under this administration, you just need to come to Enugu at night and sincerely speaking you will think you are in Paris. Sullivan is just wonderful and to think that he dosen't broadcast everything he does to the world is another plus for him. I respect that man.
Absolute thrash. Sullivan has ruled Enugu for 7 years and you can't compare it with Okorochas 3 years. To be fair Sullivan has tried in beautifying Enugu town but for you to come online and blame Rochas for flood and write like there has never been flooding in Enugu despite its hilly terrain is hypocrisy and blackmail either to feel good or just to give a false impression. I can as well show you pictures of flooded road in Enugu if we are to use that as bench mark. Even the Enugu airport was flooded recently and pictures of it everywhere online. You silly Igbos should stop this nonsense of looking for fault where there is little just to feel better off.
You can as well blame Sullivan for this one
|Politics / Re: How We Ended Up In A Man Made River In Owerri(enugu To Owerri) by Abagworo(m): 9:52am On Sep 29|
lonelydora: Owerri and Enugu cannot be compared. Enugu is far better than Owerri. BTW, I thought Rochas is working, with all the media hype. Chai, my beloved Owerri has turned into a riverine city like Bayelsa.
Says who? Igbos should stop allowing themselves to be rubbished just because of Jonathan. Owerri is finer and much more modern that Enugu. Going all out to look for a fault will definitely lead you to something. Please you people should be careful how you play this politics game. Yesterday had almost the entire Southern Nigeria flooded from one of the heaviest rains of the year and no city is left out including Port-Harcourt where I live.
It is best to stay with the truth and stop blackmails.
|Politics / Re: 2015: Jonathan Splits Igbo by Abagworo(m): 9:08am On Sep 29|
berem: Chekwas Okorie is only seeking for attention and he's no different from other asslickers and sycophants who has gone to Aso Rock and didn't come back the same. Only one visit to the Presidential Villa, he and his party will endorse Jonathan with immediate effect.
I don't think so. He is the founder of APGA before it was hijacked. Even if he finally adopts Jonathan, he has aired the view of the wise ones.
|Politics / Re: 2015: Jonathan Splits Igbo by Abagworo(m): 9:06am On Sep 29|
Me and Chekwas Okorie have so much in common. This has been my view and will always be my view not only about Igbo but every group or nationality. I will forever love Rochas Okorocha for coming out bold to contest ans say no to Igbos being 4th class citizens in Nigeria. Let Theodore Orji, Iwuanyanwu, Chris Uba and Peter Obi continue with their bottom licking. Let them continue stripping middle aged Igbo independence activist to make ridicule of their own people in order to appease others. Let them keep lying against and blackmailing Okorocha for being upright and refusing to join the band wagon. Finally let them attack me for saying the truth.

Study Abagworo well and realize that I can never derail any thread not to talk of Igbo thread. The truth is that those in support of Igbo annihilation like Chino et al feel bad that I sensitize on the wickedness of Jonathan and Peter Obi against MASSOB and Igbos in general. They try to create an impression of me being against Anambra in order to further their job of misleading Igbos with false news. I'm completely pro-Igbo and want an Igboman to be President or Vice or if not at least let us have a bargaining power instead of remaining AGIP. Nobody negotiates with "Oh yes" people. Opposition puts you in a negotiation position and not "YEAA", ABN or TAN. That's purely my position.
