I fail to see Amaechi's business in these Okrika artificial settlements. The truth is that those people dislike decency and their villages are always crowded with zinc structures. The history of the waterfronts correlate with the abandoned property saga which made Ikwerres lose land in order not to be Igbo. Amaechi wanted to demolish those settlements and rebuild them but they led by Patience Jonathan saw it as a war against Okrika people.

IGBOSON1:
See this fool pretending to be Igbo!

Just had a brief look at your profile and noticed you've been pro-Buhari all along! You registered with an Igbo moniker just a few months to elections (like many others pretending to be Igbo and neutral, but then go on to say they're supporting apc and Buhari), and not for once have you championed any Igbo cause or defended us against the normal anti-Igbo rants and campaigns of calumny this website is known for!

You're fooling no one!

I am completely pro-Buhari and I have always believed in him since I was born. I grew up hearing about his meekness and always wished he would come back again to rule Nigeria. Real Igbos know the truth that Jonathan was incapable of handling Nigeria but the usual suspects like Iwuanyanwu, Arthur Eze, Arthur Nzeribe et al were busy paying people to lie and give an impression of Igbos being behind Jonathan's failed leadership.

rexbuton:

How can somwone with ancestors names efeizomo, obaigbena, okundaye and egboba be an Igbo man? Are these Igbo names? As the lineage traces backwards the names get more specific to a particular tribe, can't u see that u guys are devoid of logic?
That kind is obviously leaving something out or he doesn't know his history.. So the binis gave them new names because they went to help them fight? How long did the Idah campaign last? The binis blocked the fulanis at idah river and made statues, after the fulas shot arrows at the statues for long and they didn't fall , they ran back.. The defense force did not pursue for long.. It was the kogi tribes who tool the battle personal.. There are records! So the time frame is too short to have converted these 'nri kings' and gave them new names

Odogwu and Ozomo are Igbo names. Why not ask yourself why you speak Igbo despite being proximal to Bini. It can only happen either through colonisation or overwhelming influx of Igbos which I doubt. Delta Igbo bears characteristics of Igbo with Bini influence and not Bini with Igbo influence.

When and how did you become a king?


I ascended the throne on September 6, 1959 almost 57 years
now. I succeeded my father. There were previous kings
before him; I have the history. My father was Efeizomor, I;
my grandfather was Steven Ekoko Obaigbena, my great
grandfather was Okundaye, his father was Egboba and so on.
The lineage goes back all the way to 16 predecessors on this
throne. It is hereditary. That’s how I became the king.


Were you given a new name at the time of your coronation?


I was asked to choose and I felt it was necessary for me to
choose my father’s name. He was Efeizomor I and I am
Efeizomor II.

Please explain how this kingdom came into existence


That is a very long history. From what we have on record,
documented by the British in 1932, the Owa people migrated
from Nri,
somewhere in Anaocha Local Government in
Anambra State, in the 12 century. Beginning from that time,
we settled at Ute Kingdom and in the process, there was a
war between Benin and Idah. So the Oba of Benin needed
military reinforcement and he called on Ute Kingdom which
the Obi of Ute provided. The Obi’s first son, Odogwu and his
immediate younger brother, Ozomo led a contingent of
soldiers to assist Benin in the military campaign against the
aggressors. The operation lasted for about three years. So
when Odogwu came back, it was discovered that his father
had since died and as it were, since they did not know
whether Odogwu was still alive, as there was no means of
communication, they installed his younger brother as Obi of
Ute. When Odogwu and his immediate younger brother,
Ozomo came back, they discovered that their younger
brother was on the throne but Odogwu having some military
knowledge was not prepared to unseat his brother or declare
war against him. He decided to go to the shrine and removed
the essential spiritual ingredients and headed forth towards
this direction with Ozomo. It was in the process of their
journey that the spiritual pot that was directing their
movement fell down which was the instruction that wherever
the pot drops, they should settle there.
So they eventually settled in this place called Owa-Oyibu.
Odogwu settled here and asked Ozomo to move a little
distance from him, about two kilometres which he did and he
settled at Owa-Alizomor. He settled there as a buffer so that
in the event of any attack, his brother with his troop will be
able to offer resistance before the supply base can provide
the main force. That instrument removed from the shrine is
the medicine for growth and development of the community.
So you can find that the whole thing is working very well to
the advantage of Owa because Owa is growing in leaps and
bounds. Everybody who enters Owa prospers.
Politics / Re: Distinction Between Niger Delta, South South And "Niger Delta" by Abagworo(m): 5:47pm On May 24
barcanista:
Overtime people have used the term Niger Delta and South South interchangeably. I took my time to do extensive research and I consider it wise to share with the public.

Niger Delta
The Niger Delta is the delta of the Niger River at the Gulf of Guinea on the Atlantic Ocean in Nigeria. Historically and cartographically, the Niger Delta region consist of present day Rivers and Bayelsa states and Warri in (Delta state). These areas/states collectively is sometimes called Oil Rivers, as it was then the British Oil Rivers Protectorate established in 1884. The area was called Oil Rivers Protectorate because it was a major producer of palm oil. The area would be later part of the larger Niger Coast Protectorate after it was expanded in 1893 with Calabar as administrative office.

South South
The "South South" is an artificial geo-political zone created in 1995 by Gen Sani Abacha, and consist of Rivers, Bayelsa, Delta, Cross river, Akwa Ibom and Edo states. IBB had created six zones for "effective allocation of resources"

Historically, the "South South" has never been a single administrative entity. Let me explain...

Edo and Delta states
Though Warri (previously known as Delta Province) is/was part of the Niger Delta, the British in 1939 created the Western Region as a subset of Southern Nigeria and included Benin and Delta provinces in the region. The MidWest referendum of 1963 led to the creation of MidWest which included the Benin and Delta provinces from the Western Region after years/decades of agitation started by Benin Kings Oba Iweka II(in 1924) and Oba Akenzua II, Omo-Osiagie, Dennis Osadebe, Dalton Asemota, Okotie-Eboh etc and backed by super majority of Benin-Delta people. However, agitation by the "Niger-Deltans" within Bendel state for the creation of Warri State for the Niger Deltans(old Warri province), as well as call by the ANIOMAs for the Creation of ANIOMA state from the old Benin province led to the creation of Edo and Delta states in 1991.
(IBB forced Warri and ANIOMA people into one "Delta" state)

Akwa-Ibom, Cross river, Rivers and Bayelsa states
The four states were part of the Eastern Region in 1954 along with the present day 5 South Eastern States. Rivers and Bayelsa later formed "Rivers" State in 1967, while Akwa Ibom and Cross River became South Eastern state(later renamed Cross river state in 1976). Akwa Ibom state and Bayelsa state were splitted from Cross river(1987) and Rivers (1996) respectively.

Official "Niger Delta" States
President Olusegun Obasanjo in 2000 "expanded" Niger Delta to include SW Ondo state, SE Imo and Abia states , and SS Akwa Ibom, Edo and Cross river states. Thus, official Niger Delta states are the aforementioned plus the historical and cartographical Niger Delta (Rivers, Bayelsa and Delta states). All 8 states are the oil producing states in Nigeria.


This is undiluted truth. However fringes of the Delta touch Akwa Ibom, Imo and Abia States.

Is it ongoing or completed project? Southeast is the poorest zone in Nigeria going by State allocations and has more population than the rest when you include those living outside but rooted in the Southeast. No Southeast State is in the top 10 of Nigeria. Borno gets more money than all Southeast States.

I wrote all of the above to explain why projects in the Southeast are at best modest and not expensive as there is little money to waste. Lagos, Rivers, Akwa Ibom top list of expensive projects unsurprisingly because they are by far the top 3 earners.

Abia is building the largest mall in Africa and one of the largest in the world.

Culture / Ughievwen Bare bosom Carnival. Resurrection Of Old Urhobo Culture. by Abagworo(m): 8:01pm On May 22
Two lecturers at Delta State University, DELSU, Abraka,
Professor Christopher Orubu and Dr. Emmanuel Biri, have
condemned the demonization of Urhobo culture under the facade
of Christianity.
Both lecturers, speaking at the first Ughievwen Cultural Carnival,
staged at Otughievwen, headquarters of Ughelli South Local
Government Area, said the trend was robbing Urhobo nation and
Ughievwen Urhobo in particular, economic oppor-tunities to sell
its culture and heritage to the outside world.
Professor Orubu stated that as a people, Ughievwen of Urhobo
evolved with peculiar cultural practices and heritage giving its
sons and daughters a self- identity that cannot be sustained by
any borrowed culture.
He said: ”Our four pivots of chieftaincy, Adeh, Eboh, Igbun-Otor
and Igbun-Eshovwin, which have been handed down from
generations have exclusive entertainment carriages in various
festivals, which were the envy of non-natives, who throng the
community from far and near to share in the fun.
Demonization of culture
“Today, in the name of Christianity, these attractions are fast
fading away. We demonize our culture on the notion that they are
fetish, but even the Pope has entered shrines, not of Christians,
and acknowledged the sense of faith in God by adherents of the
deities worshipped in such shrines.”
In a separate lecture on The Past, Present and Future of the
Ughievwen People, Dr. Biri of the Department of Mass
Communication, DELSU, said that some of the core cultural values
of Ughievwen Urhobo, being so demeaned in the land, were being
celebrated with growing global recognition in other climes.
Biri asserted: “The Epha (celebration of bare bosom maidens),
which is Urhobo’s appreciation of the purity in women, is
gradually going into extinction on the notion that it is fetish and
obscene.
“But in Swaziland, the same heritage has become an annual
tourist attraction visited by several people from around the world.
“In Ughievwen, ancestral worship has also been condemned as
demonic and fetish whereas in Japan, the second largest economy
in the world, ancestral veneration remains a valued culture.
“Japanese, including the most highly placed, go to venerate the
graves of their dead parents, decorating them with flowers.”
Why we organized carnival
Chief Enyote Gbogbo, who headed the team of organizers of the
event, told Niger Delta Voice: “The pains expressed by the DELSU
scholars underpin the motivation for originating the Ughievwen
Cultural Carnival.
Gbogbo said: “We noticed Ughievwen will have no sense of
identity as a people if our cultural values are being rubbished and
discarded, no matter the excuses.
“To revive the dying culture, we have decided to bring the various
cultural celebrations into one big annual carnival.”

I am happy the South-southerners are speaking against ibos force marriage now.

You people tend to equate Jonathan and PDP propagandists as Igbo spokesmen. Igbos know where Igboland starts and ends and everyone also know that Biafra is not equivalent to Igboland. Aniocha and Oshimili in Delta State are Igbos but were included in the declaration of Benin republic during the Biafran war while Ibibio are not Igbos but were included in Biafra republic which was basically the Eastern region.

That cleared, the issue is we that are agitating for the republic of Igboland(different from Biafra) include Ahaba, Kwale, Port Harcourt as part of that republic which is strictly for Igbo speaking people.

Why should Abia state perform poorly despite having all the economic advantage over Enugwu and your here talking about Jonathan.

lt all depends on what you define as poor performance. Enugu city enjoyed 8 years of total government attention in beautification and road construction. Abia enjoyed 8 years of industrial growth and construction of power generating and distribution plants. Between beautification of one city and industrial growth which would you choose. Inability of States to pay salary is as a result of dwindling oil revenue and their inability to increase IGR

Isiokpo and Ikwerre in general is mostly Igbo descendants from Arochukwu, Owerri, Orlu, Ohaji and Abo. The language is equally very similar to some Owerri west and Ohaji dialects From Umuguma down to Umuapu. These truths are well known but it doesnt imply Ikwerre is Igbo today.

I agree with this post Abagworo
But the problem is that will ORO listen to it. From the look of things, he is all bent on making Imo a socialist state - something that is not a treat of the Igboman. Take a look at his cabinet for instance, it's filled with politicians than technocrats. What transformed Obasanjo's 2nd tenure as President was his utilization of technocrats to run his economic policies. eg Chukwuma Soludo, Oby Ezekwesili, Okonjo Iweala, El Rufai and others.

All these things are long talk. What Okorocha has done so far is encouraging for investors but Imolites generally want quick and immediate return on investment which one cannot easily get from agriculture or factory. Hotel, Church, Filling Station, Fast Food outlets and joints are the fastest yielding investments and we always opt for them. Despite Theodore Orji being criticised Abia still got more industries than other Southeast States even with heavy taxation and bad roads.

2. Delta 14,884,561,011.30
3. Rivers 13,811,059,254.97
4. Bayelsa 10,522,293,702.84
5. Lagos 8,023,794,161.05

When you add IGR Lagos moves to the top and Akwa Ibom drops to 3rd while Rivers moves up to 2nd. It is reflected in terms of the huge infrastructural projects embarked upon by these 3 States. Lagos is highest followed by Rivers and then Akwa Ibom.

The question is should we judge Governors by the amount of huge projects or by their impact on the lives of their subjects? This is because you hear people condemn Orji and praise Akpabio while in actual fact you dont see Abians migrating out to work as househelps or live in makeshift slums even though the Governor was not involved in huge projects as a result of very limited funds. Amaechi and Fashola impacted very possitively on their subjects and even had to accomodate thousands of Akwaibomites in their States.

You cannot use your immediate environment to judge the entire Southeast. I wrote it long before the election and it came to be. Imo State was never a PDP zone despite the use of 3 local government areas in Imo and some Anambra people loyal to Peter Obi to abuse Okorocha on social media.
