Politics / Re: Power Supply Hits 4105MW As Generation Continues Recovery by Abagworo(m): 11:46am

Open another thread on that subject to expose details

Not only Rivers but Abia. Barth Nnaji is being blocked from supplying power to Aba.

Rivers State is generating enough power and FG is sabotaging it. Tell me how we are going to support a Government denying us access to power we generate.
Travel / Re: Welcome To Oshogbo. by Abagworo(m): 11:04am
I've often told my Yoruba brothers to quit trying to argue about their cities ancient status. There is nothing bad about it. Most Southeast cities developed recently and hence will have more modern houses. I don't even like the Southeast housing either as they lack decent designs of my standard. Be proud of your ancient cities while you can build modern ones from the scratch. Akure stands out in terms of recent housing to ancient housing ratio.
Travel / Re: How Safe Is Aba, Abia State? by Abagworo(m): 10:58am
Big Jakie: I stay in Aba and I must say... itz a 'sorry' city. everyday I hav to park my car at a frndz house, bring out my rainboots and join the long line to cross the bad roads... jumping from stone to stone, while some even jump and fall into gutters, as the others cheer in excitment of a live event.... mtchew...just after opobo junction towards Ehere market... the road networkz are completly broken (quote me if im wrong). the sight is like that of refugees crossing boarders.. At night its like a dark room wit no lights... lets be honest... it'll take time for anyone movin to Aba to adjust...

Does it mean the entire Aba is like that or selected areas? I've been to Abia Poly last year and never encountered any single bad road or are the areas I passed all the way to the Poly not part of Aba?
Politics / Re: Why Haven't The Army Comb Sambisa Forest? by Abagworo(m): 10:46am
Things are easier said than done. The army has been doing exacty what the OP stated but it won't be easy baring in mind that these people have given up their lives and could be waiting to commit suicide with the invading soldiers. The reason why this crisis reached this point of no return is because of politics. The earlier bombings was a PDP internal crisis while Boko haram is an external force sponsored by international organizations to islamize Africa. Instead of our political leaders to unite and fight the external force, they were busy politicizing it.

Owerri - though without pipe-borne water - is the only place that can be likened to a city in Imo state. You too much hate yourself as you live in, enjoy and call a place without pipe-borne water, a city. Are u sure you have ever seen a city?

Govt lays infrastructures that make way for development of a city - it's not traditions that develop a city - you de too lie lie, that's why I do not like to engage you. Aba, Onitsha and Nnewi can never make any development if govt did not first lay the fundamental infrastructure needed for development.



What can you find in those places that you can't find in Oguta for example? Nigeria has no city with complete pipe-borne water, sewage, constant power, completely clean all paved roads etc. No single city in Nigeria including Abuja has basic infrastructure. Parts of Lagos and Abuja are what look more like cities in Nigeria. However if you are talking about a place with 50% paved roads, some industries, streetlights, some good residential area, few good private and public schools, markets, hotels, at least 6 banks, gas stations and population of above 100k, then Orlu fits in and so are 99% of Nigerian cities.

cleanernaija: If cities in a state are expanding and merging to form one-city state, it is different from one-city states like Imo where only one city is made to develop at the expense of others. Akwa Ibom and Anambra states have many cities developing at the same pace. At one point, the cities in these states may merge and the states become one-city states. On the other hand, in Imo state for example, it has since become like a rule that infrastructural development is meant for only the state capital. People from Imo state capital, Owerri, have thus been conditioned by inept leaders to see it as taboo to talk about extending development infrastructures outside Owerri.

Imo is never a one city State. Orlu which is a city of more than 100thousand is completely different from Owerri and there are several settlements of more than 30 thousand people in Imo State. Don't because of self-hate lie against yourself. Government don't develop cities, tradition does. Aba, Onitsha and Nnewi had almost zero government contribution to their development.

Rivers is a not a one-city State but all of Port-Harcourt is one city. An expanded city is not equivalent to multiple cities. There are many expanded cities in Nigeria like Maiduguri, Kano, Ibadan, Aba, Onitsha, Benin etc. They've grown beyond their traditional LGA's into 5 to 12 adjoining ones but many of them still have other cities in same State.

In Rivers, Bonny qualifies as a separate city and if Ahoada is expanded, it could become a 3rd city while Bori makes it 4th.

Ethnic/Racial Politics / Re: Breaking! Ikwerre People Re-affirm Their Igbo Root,inaugurate Ohanaeze Chapter by Abagworo(m): 12:16pm On Apr 23
ckkris: If you suffer just one half of what Ikwerre people suffered, during, and worse, after the war, you will even deny your father's name. And you have no idea of the quality of Ikwerre youths that died fighting for Biafra. Just ask around OCJ Okocha's village. And Ikwerre did not participate in the abandoned property. Say only what you know.



Ikwerre being Igbo is a non-conclusive subject but I'd like my Igbo brothers to know the truth that Ikwerres never seized Igbo properties. Okrika were the guilty ones. Even though some Igbo properties were seized in Ikwerreland like D-Line and Mile 1, none was taken by Ikwerres. They were all taken by Rivers Government under non-Ikwerre leadership.

Okocha is from Rukpakulusi.

In reality Aba is the safest town in the whole former Eastern region today. However the safety is uneasy calm because it is parked with soldiers and checkpoints. Withdraw the soldiers and I'm sure crime will erupt.

Enugu is cleaner and has better roads but if the aim is to start business, then go to Aba because you have more chances of being a billionaire and learning the intrigues in business.


In summary a made man should settle in Enugu while a hustler should settle in Aba.
Politics / Re: Video: BBC Meets Gang 'paid To Join Boko Haram' In Niger - BBC News by Abagworo(m): 9:03am On Apr 23
The reason why Jonathan has failed in this war is because he has politicized it. I don't know if its a mistake or deliberate act but I believe a man as old as him should have known that the boko haram threat is no child's play to be used in politics. Imagine if the American republicans accused democrats for the 9/11 instead of joining with them to fight terrorism. If he thinks its a Northern thing, then I won't be surprised if we wake up one day to learn that Abuja has been overrun.

All involved in preaching hate at this moment deserve to die for Nigeria to be at peace once again.

KIRIJI: I am suprised you did not mention Kano state, albeit i agree with you, Nigeria is still a 'backward' country

If roads were to be used as a factor, then Northern Nigeria is far more developed than South. Kano despite being the 2nd largest urban area after Lagos is very much unlike Lagos. The poverty there is extreme and religious tolerance, education, health etc are part of the determinant factors of development.

KIRIJI: Are you okay?

She is right to an extent depending on the parameter being employed. Akwa-Ibom is nowhere close to development. If the topic was on States with good roads then Akwa-Ibom might fit in but beyond good roads, I don't think there exists any other factor Akwa-Ibom can be mentioned other than collecting highest monthly allocation.

Anambra is the 2nd "most urbanized" State in Nigeria behind Lagos. Imo today should be the 3rd with Osun, Rivers, Ogun and Delta following behind.

Aba that most people condemn is one of the most developed cities in Nigeria. Road is just the problem they have which is just one factor. Abia has one of the best health sector in Nigeria.

Now when you key in the real aspects of development, Nigeria as a whole is disgustingly backwards I'm sorry to say but Lagos has hopes of being better.

Beremole: @bold,that's the reason why I said Igbos on this forum support Jonathan blindly. I am yet to see or hear about one single ongoing or completed project by Jonathan. If there's any,please let me know or else Rochas shouldn't be blamed for the poor state of the road.

To be fair enough many of those roads are under construction at the moment including this particular Owerri-PH road the OP wrote about. The issue is misplaced blame.

Jonathan with the support of Peter Obi are the ones blocking the ongoing construction of Owerri-ph road just because Okorocha has a different political affiliation. The funny thing is that some Igbos see no fault in this wickedness by Jonathan against Igbos. The Aba-Ph road, Aba-Ikot-Ekpene road, Umuahia-Ikot-Ekpene road etc are all failed federal roads in Southeast.

If not that Obasanjo almost completed the Owerri-Onitsha road which Yar-adua did a finishing touch, it would have been in the list of failed roads. Today some people are deceiving the gullible that Jonathan had a hand in that road.

Yeske!:
It's obviously evident that yours is a case of inferiority complex, worse than Chino's. How many Anambrarians do you know for you to bring on this silly rivalry here? You are worse than Chino and please cleanse your heart of the hate.

I have no grudge against all Anambrians but those with this kind of mind set towards other Igbos. An example is Peter Obi, Chino, Odenigbo, Nripriest etc. I've encountered them severally and repeatedly in life both at home and diaspora. I don't know the exact reason for their actions but they do it repeatedly even amongst non-Igbos. It is the duty of the good ones to check-mate their brothers.

Orlando Owoh:
It's unfortunate Chino and Abagworo are Ibo but are cat and mouse over the issues of which between Imo and Anambra is better.

Its not about Imo and Anambra but about Igbo interest. Its not only Chino but many Anambrians on Nairaland and in real life make a living castigating every other thing Igbo that is not Anambra. From calling Abakaliki and Wawa people mumu to claiming Mbaise is this and that to calling Imo women prostitutes to posting bad pictures of every little fault they find in other Igbo States to fighting emerging Igbo leaders from other States. They've even gone as far as lying about Igbo history and proclaiming Nri as the origin of all Igbo culture and language whereas each branch of Igbo has their own version of events. That's the ish I don't like.

Surprisingly other Igbos swallow this except few like me and probably Rochas Okorocha in the political arena. The reason they are fighting Rochas in particular is to make sure he does not emerge the most formidable Igbo force because he's not from Anambra State. They'll do same to Chime if Chime were interested in Presidency. I resist that nonsense mainly because I believe in one Igbo and wouldn't want a crack in Igboland as it is today. If we should allow this to continue then its of no use wasting our time trying to be one Igbo.

if i wanted to derail your thread its easy

am just trying to stop you from mis-informing people

and yah,thats Old ETF,the governor cant do all things,he is not God,he is only a human like you

You should have known chino and his likes. They hate the fact that Imo and other Igbo States have left them behind and thrive on propaganda of trying to bring other Igbo States down with lies while they promote theirs undetered. So just ignore him and his HIV-ridden cohorts to wallow in their ignorance and jealousy.

I guess the most frustrating part is that if you drive into Anambra, the road changes.

Have you ever driven from Orlu to Anambra?
You will notice how the road dramatically changes once you see the welcome to Anambra signpost, as you drive from Akokwa into Uga and onto Ezinifite(Aguata) to Igboukwu.

A nairalander known as "calabaman" from Akwa-Ibom drove from Ihiala to Orlu. You can ask him if Ihiala road in Anambra is better than that same road in Orlu. The pictures are on his thread.

Because PDP lost to Okorocha in Imo, Jonathan abandoned the Port-Harcourt-Owerri expressway and is busy giving money to Udenwa, Iwuanyanwu and Ararume in order to fight Rochas. He has even refused to pay Amaechi for the Rivers part Amaechi constructed in order to link Rivers people with their kiths and kins in Imo.

amarilo: Berem at least you know that am not chino, let me least the roads in IMO(orlu) that is in similar condition.

Owerri road, going from Owerri thru umuna, Owerri-ebeiri, umuowa, umudioka, nkume and all the way to Owerri is in bad situation since 2012 jan Rochas govt brought catapillar to that axis. Now going to Owerri from orlu thru ama Igbo rd, amaifeke junction, okporo, nkume the road is the same story. That amaigbo rd was started since 2011 and many other roads in orlu metropolis and as at last month(March) I was in orlu only one road(Enugu rd) completed. Going from beach to ideato upto Rochas home town is the same story. So is IMO state only Owerri?

Sometimes I feel bad when we defend this thieves knowing fully well that they are not working. Today if I want to leave where I am to come and join in the looting it is as easy as saying ABC cos I know many people inside the govt house of IMO state but I choose not to cos I some how feel for the people being denied of what is due to them. A friend of my left here nov 2012 to join them in the looting today he has a hotel in Nigeria.

If all of us join hands and tell them irrespective of party affiliation that they are not doing it right they might change but when they feel that they have supporters they keep doing what they are doing.

Rochas still has 5 years left to be judged. Right now I score him 8/10 for having vision. He started so many projects at the same time and is trying his best to complete them and I believe 90% will be completed in this his 1st tenure. If he can complete the entire hospitals, schools and roads, then it is a miracle going by Nigerian standards and the revenue accruable to Imo State.

We also need to stop shutting our eyes to the reality that Jonathan is trying to appease the North while he sees us as mugu. All the roads you mentioned above should be done by federal. The State has tried in doing the metropolitan parts of the road.

You can cry all you want but Anambra has taken it rightful place and no amount of propaganda from you can stop us. Comparing Imo and Anambra as regards to development is like comparing light and darkness. Bring it on,bbitch!

There's nowhere in Anambra like Owerri. Oguta is far more developed and beautiful than all the rural areas of Anambra State. I'm very ready for your nonsense. You guys can try that with Abia but never ever try Imo or Rivers cause my venom is charged and ready to spit through my fangs for you anti-Igbo unity. We are advanced.
