Nwaoguta: where is abagworo?
Mr Chino, seems you're jobless. I think Imo lawmakers will collect your Oga's 100million and nothing will still happen as they will use it to develop Imo further. Y'all should keep dying of jealousy while Imo develops.
|Politics / Re: Pdp’s End Will Be Ugly – Tinubu by Abagworo(m): 4:22am On Jul 29|
You can lie, accuse or deny the obvious to divert attention but Nigeria just created another monster for itself last weekend. Go through this thread and see how Yar'Adua admin created the 1st crisis.
|Politics / Re: Pdp’s End Will Be Ugly – Tinubu by Abagworo(m): 4:04am On Jul 29|
You and I will live to witness everything like we are witnessing BH today. While I personally do not even believe in religion, people should be allowed to practise their religion as no one actually knows the truth but all are speculating based on the side of brainwash they belong.

blacksta: Mr Rule of Law don kill somebody for custody - This could have major implications on Nigeria - God forbid we have the first suicide bombers in Nigeria
When intelligent people make their contributions, fools remain be-clouded in tribalism and religious differences. Isn't it ridiculous that as at 2009 there was never a case. Of suicide bombing in Nigeria but the refusal of the then dull Preidency of Yar'Adua to understand the root of all religious martyrdom led us into this present crisis. To add salt to injury, Jonathan admin just repeated same mistake last week. To correct the error, whoever is involved in the. Shiite massacre must be judged and executed publicly. I've said my own as a patriot.

oduastates: The president and his minions have lit so many ticking time bombs
Thank you very much. I sincerely believe a calamity will befall Nigerian capital sooner than later. I won't mourn those who set the trap for themselves with hope of ruling forever when they get butchered like chicken in a few months. If I were Jonathan, I'd relocate to the far South this week to prepare for the inevitable Shiite onslaught which will be worse than Boko Haram. Some of us gave this same warning in 2009 when Yusuf was murdered.

Good approach if real. This man seems out to right much of the wrongs done by the past failed administration of "Thiefer" Obi.

Thank you for being realistic. If FG does not act fast, the end will be a disaster for them.

IGBOSON1: I wonder why it's so difficult to get latest pics on anything in Imo state......so annoying! It's never a problem with Enugu, Akwa Ibom or Lagos!
Because Imo Government is not a propaganda type. Most pictures of Akwa Ibom you get are from government propaganda websites taken from helicopter with high definition cameras. The picture of Enugu is from Spyder88 who lives in Enugu with his phone and not from government propaganda hence lack of high definition pictures. Nigerians generally lack that urge to snap pictures. At a stage someone living in Owerri took several pictures and populated this thread but all was lost to the Nairaland hacking. I sure will visit Imo State and spend some days without missing pictures. At least the pictures of Oguta I took when Justice Oputa died is on this thread. Owerri as a city does not look like Nigeria at all. The only problem is open drainages which is being addressed now. There is an old part of the city around Douglas that gives it the typical Nigerian feel but beyond Douglas area which is crowded and dirty, much of Owerri is extremely beautiful and completely modern in housing with some bad dots outside the city like Umuguma, Orji/Uratta and Amakohia/Akwakuma.
|Politics / Uyo Residents Groan Under Bad Roads, Flood by Abagworo(m): 11:01am On Jul 28|
By Idongesit Ashameri / Uyo
It is no longer news that Akwa Ibom State has some of the best road networks in the country, as evidenced in the number of dualized roads with street lights in most major of them within the capital city.
This approach dubbed, ‘uncommon transformation’, is not only restricted to state roads within the capital city but also extended to federal roads, suggesting to visitors to the state that all is well as far as road network is concerned.
However, a trip through internal roads within the heart of Uyo capital city would reveal to any that behind the veil of this window dressing are very dilapidated, muddy and flooded roads, with many fast becoming unmotorable as the raining season advances.
Apparently worried over what would become of some residential areas in Uyo, a resident, Gloria Asuquo, who described the situation as “uncommon flooding” while speaking with Daily Independent, accused the present administration of rather focusing on what would attract national praise than what really solves the actual needs of Akwa Ibom people.
Asuquo, who resides in Michael Abraham Street, Uyo, one of the affected areas, pointed out that people in the area have so far counted losses of properties and other valuable items worth millions of naira, even as the rain is just starting.
Another resident, Michael Ukpe, said: “I blame this whole hardship on government because they have refused to award road contract to indigenous contractors. If a contract as simple as refuse evacuation were awarded to someone who is not from here, of what concern would dumping refuse in the gutters be to such one?
Also speaking to our correspondent, Micah Ibanga, a businessman along IBB Way, expressed concern over the rate which flood ravaged some parts of Uyo, and stressed that if the situation is not promptly addressed, the rainy season, which is yet to come full force, may seriously threaten lives and properties within Uyo.
|Politics / Re: Few Pics From Imo State by Abagworo(m): 10:32am On Jul 28|
What do you want to see? Imo is way more developed than your State in every index of development. We don't go to other towns as house helps, gate-men and labourers. We go there as investors and employers of labour. Better get your poor, uneducated, backward, child-trafficking, slum dwelling arss out of this thread. Meanwhile enjoy a ride in Owerri residential area.
|Politics / Re: 10 Most Developed State Capitals In Nigeria. by Abagworo(m): 11:45pm On Jul 27|
This is Owerri. Only one thing gives it out as Nigeria.

If I was in Imo State, I would have flooded this thread with pictures. I just pray I get free time to spend like 1 week in Imo and people will see the truth here on Nairaland. You people's propaganda against my State has already failed.
|Politics / Re: Biafra Midwest Invasion: A Case Of War Crime by Abagworo(m): 11:21pm On Jul 27|
barcanista: What are you saying? Ojukwu Biafra wanted to take control of every territory by hook or crook... He wanted to do an hitler. He was power thirsty! That man was so wicked killing our people at will. Anyway, I will restrict this thread to what the biafran movement did in midwest! Your propaganda won't cover it
Everyone was a victim of Biafra including Igbo people. Your so-called hook or crook is the reason your people still hate Igbos till this day. Better wake up from your sleep and realize Igbos had and still have nothing against you and don't even notice you one bit.
|Politics / Re: Few Pics From Imo State by Abagworo(m): 11:12pm On Jul 27|
Your picture is old. I have a very reliable information that the stadium is almost completed and they are entering grassing stage. So go back at your leisure and take new pictures. Even this your old picture shows work was ongoing. It does not pay to lie shamelessly for peanuts.
|Politics / Re: Biafra Midwest Invasion: A Case Of War Crime by Abagworo(m): 11:04pm On Jul 27|
barcanista: My dear, one thing I always know is that Truth Cannot be hidden. If I am to even mention Biafra attrocities on Ijawland/Old Rivers state you will be shocked.
What you call attrocities on Ijawland was widespread across all parts of Biafra including the Igbo parts and Crossriver parts. Anyone who didn't share same view as pro-Biafrans was called saboteur and maltreated and in many cases killed. It wasn't exclusive to Rivers or singled out area. My own Grandfather met same fate and he was Igbo. It is no different from what Asari et al are doing today by branding every opposition in Rivers or Igboland as saboteurs or claiming they are joining North to fight Jonathan and hence doing everything to destabilize their Government like the case of Amaechi.
|Politics / Re: Biafra Midwest Invasion: A Case Of War Crime by Abagworo(m): 10:59pm On Jul 27|
You started this argument when I wrote about the Benin history of all Mid-Western peoples. Just in case you've forgotten, here's my quote.
Abagworo: Seun and the mods should try and be more strict in issues that will cause ethno-religious dichotomy in Nigeria. This thread is a false thread based on unfounded allegations and should therefore be wiped. Mid-West was never part of Biafra and Ojukwu never ruled Mid-West for one day. The Igbo men in Mid-West were indegenous to Mid-West and hence weren't Biafrans. Visit the culture section and notice the historic affiliation of Mid-West Igbos, Ijaws, Urhobos, Isokos, Ika etc to Benin despite their differences. In fact what all tribes in Delta and Edo States have in common today is Benin history and influence.

chinolization: My friend go and sit down, you always make incoherent comment!
Contrary to your view, most well informed Nigerians know more than this cheap blackmail. What stops PDP-led government from arresting and prosecuting the APC leaders. 2ndly why are all Boko Haram suspects released by orders from above?
(1st link) They were arrested planting bombs
(2nd link) They confessed targeting 5 churches
(3rd link) They were released giving flimsy excuses.
Who is fooling who?
|Politics / Re: Biafra Midwest Invasion: A Case Of War Crime by Abagworo(m): 10:38pm On Jul 27|
Mid-West was headed by a Mid-Westerner. The whole opposition from Ijaw and Urhobo was because he was ethnic Igbo like the 1st Premier who was also ethnic Igbo. The same way they've fought tooth and nail to prevent anyone from Oshimili, Aniocha, Ika and Ukwuani from being Governor till date. It is not even hidden that the choice of Asaba as Delta capital remains an issue till this day.

|Politics / Re: Biafra Midwest Invasion: A Case Of War Crime by Abagworo(m): 10:19pm On Jul 27|
The mission was clear and unmistakable. Lagos and West was to be declared Oduduwa Republic led by Yorubas while Mid-West was already declared Benin Republic led by Mid-Westerners. How then were they claimed as Biafran territories?
|Politics / Re: Biafra Midwest Invasion: A Case Of War Crime by Abagworo(m): 10:15pm On Jul 27|
Obiagelli: Abagworo, do you know there were plans to proceed to ore and then to Ibadan but I don't want to post that here for obvious reasons. Read my brother.
Led by Ojukwu or Banjo?
|Politics / Re: Biafra Midwest Invasion: A Case Of War Crime by Abagworo(m): 9:47pm On Jul 27|
Those "Ibos" were Mid-Westerners like Pat Utomi today or Okonjo or Sunny Odogwu or Osadebe or Keshi etc. If Utomi emerges Delta Governor and decides to work with Anambra State, it does not mean Anambra took over Delta. People in Rivers State hated Peter Odili because he worked with Imo State indigenes and there were claims Igbos were ruling Rivers by proxy. That in fact cost Odili the VP slot. We should be careful what we write to avoid spreading unnecessary ethnic hate.
|Politics / Re: Ngige Meets Obi, May Dump The Islamic APC (pictures) by Abagworo(m): 9:32pm On Jul 27|
Lol! PDP is as Islamic as APC. Nigeria does not have a religious party and I don't think our constitution allows that. Stop spreading religious hate as more of your own Igbo brothers will die and lose their hard earned properties from its consequences even in Bayelsa.
|Politics / Re: Biafra Midwest Invasion: A Case Of War Crime by Abagworo(m): 9:27pm On Jul 27|
I still don't get your point. No history wrote that Ojukwu crossed the River Niger. None! I have never been an Ojukwu supporter but I can't lie to score a cheap point. The link you posted earlier only claimed Igbos from the East supported their Mid-West brothers and that's all. Some 4 officers from Mid-West were invited to Biafra and detained. Ojukwu never stepped foot on Mid-West and Mid-West was never for once declared a Biafran territory.
|Politics / Re: Biafra Midwest Invasion: A Case Of War Crime by Abagworo(m): 8:53pm On Jul 27|
You ain't arguing with a novice here. I've never read nor heard of Ojukwu crossing the Niger River to go and fight in Asaba, Warri, Sapele, Agbor, Benin or Ore. Prove me wrong.
|Politics / Re: PDP Gave “imo Assembly Members N2.6bn To Impeach Me” ––rochas Okorocha by Abagworo(m): 8:36pm On Jul 27|
motif8: even if this allegation is true which i doubt, how can someone carry 100m from abuja to owerri cash to come and show rochas, pls tell me another one, this one no gel at all. He should concentrate on working for his people so that they can consider him and not throw jab here and there, owerri realy need serious work to be called state capital, not criticizing anyway, but he still has a lot to do.
Owerri is a beautiful and modern city by every standards. However Rochas Government has gone way beyond Owerri as even the villages in Imo State today can compete as State capitals of some of our neighbouring States.

The new Orlu Stadium is 90% completed. The pictures will crop up before year end. Shame on all the liars and haters of Igboland trying to destabilize Imo State. This is the new College of health technology Orlu.
|Politics / Re: PDP Gave “imo Assembly Members N2.6bn To Impeach Me” ––rochas Okorocha by Abagworo(m): 8:04pm On Jul 27|
meforyou1: Whoever says Rochas is performing should please visit arondizuogu and have a change of heart. Rochas is a terribly lying fraud
Jonathan Government abandoned the Imo State section of Nnewi-Okigwe federal road which passes Arondizuogu and rather than blame FG you are scared of saying the truth. The same neglect is noticeable on Ohaji section of Owerri-PH highway. Obasanjo and Yar'Adua did the Owerri-Onitsha road probably because the Governors then were PDP.
