The capital city of the Republic of Rwanda, Kigali, has been declared the most beautiful city in Africa by the UN.

This recognition comes after much work was put into developing the capital by the Rwandan Goverment.

The tropical city of hills and valley is argueably the neatest city in Africa.

Incomplete story,his fellow aggrieved hawkers went on rampage and started destroying properties own by government including traffic police stands. It took the efforts and timely intervention of law enforcement agencies to control the situation which would have snow balled into something bigger. All these ebonyi boys should go and learn trades and acquire skills and stop littering our metropolis with this hawking business. Everyone wants quick money, the rate of laziness among our youths is so alarming that everyone looks for easy alternatives to survival.

Your statement is disgusting. Your fellow Igbos who resorted to hawking for survival should be treated with care and not as less of human. At least they are not criminals. Here in Port Harcourt many have transformed from hawkers to big time merchants over the years and I feel happy each time I see them. Imo task force should thread with caution.

Crime / India’s Brightest Young CEO Caught Printing Fake Money by Abagworo(m): 7:17pm On Dec 03
India is truly an incredible country. The moment we begin to feel proud of being an Indian, some assholes come out of their holes to disappoint us, hence making this country too intolerable to comply with.

With the introduction of demonetization of old currency notes in the market, a lot of things happened around us. People are waiting in queues all day long to get exchanged notes or for depositing cash.

While people are busy mobbing the banks and creating chaos outside banks and ATMs, some are devotedly engaged in printing fake currency notes.

It has not been a month since the new notes of 500 and 1000 rupees are launched in market that some evil beings began creating replicas of the currencies.

There are many cases of forged notes being circulated in the market leaving shopkeepers completely ruined.

One such soul who jumped into the market of making fake notes is Abhinav Sharma. The 21 year old was recently making headlines because of his new innovation, Live Braille.



Live Braille is a gadget made focusing on the needs of blind people. It improves mobility for the visually disabled.

His aim is to simplify the life of physically disabled by making such smart gadgets which can assist them in doing cores or running errands without depending on others.

 

Lately police arrested a gang on Wednesday of which Abhinav is a member who are creating fake currency notes worth 42 lakhs.



Police reported things which are recovered from them-an Audi car, worth around ₹70 lakhs, having a red beacon atop.

Abhinav Verma, a B.Tech graduate, his cousin Vishakha Verma, who is pursuing MBA, and Suman Nagpal, a Ludhiana-based property dealer were arrested on the charges of making fake currency notes.



Vishakha who is his right hand was an accomplice in the crime. They both were engaged in forging new notes.

There were 5 members in the gang of which 2 escaped from the police.

One member Suman, whose job was to identify customers and then she directs them to other. They duped people into believing that they are giving away new currency notes and used to take 30% commission for the same.

“The recovered notes are of fine quality and look exactly like the new notes of ₹2,000. They had installed the paraphernalia at some place to print fake notes of ₹2,000 as the people were not much aware of the authenticity of the new currency notes,” said the city’s SP.

WINNERMENTALITY:

Nobody is calling for War. Ipob is not either calling for war but sensitization need to be in place before radicalisation can take place.

This struggle is not what u can just go to courth or National assembly and win because the goverment that will decide your case are anti-(your movement). But if you put pressure on the people it will make things more faster and easier.

Nnamdi kanu arrest and radio Biafra has brought about another era of history education in Nigeria. People are now looking for Books about the war to read and to me that's the way forward.

You don't get the whole failure of IPOB from start. A State like Imo is 60% APC and 80% pro-Rochas is already at war with IPOB because all their broadcast is against APC and Rochas which 80% of us are supporting. It would have made mire sense if they were preaching unity among Igbos irrespective of political or religious affiliations. An Igbo can be Christian, Muslim, Amala, APC, APGA, PDP, 419, saint, virgin, nympho or whatever but the Igbo course should unite us all but Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB are pro-PDP and anti-Islam.

Igboland as it is today if we emerge a peaceful separate country will become the most advanced black nation in less than 20 years but how peaceful can we emerge? I have taken out time to study and imagine the outcome of secession IPOB style and already know its a disaster that will lead to death of over 5 million followed by 30 year crisis and famine. Uwazuruike's style will have less casualty of about 1million but will not still work as there will be internal unending crisis.

The IPOB business was founded on anti-Imo basis and is busy attacking our Governor and raining insults on our people. While Imo people have always been the sacrificial lamb of Biafra only on condition of the capital rightly moved to Owerri and the president being from Southern Igbo will they get Imo State support.

IPOB is not fighting for Igbos but fighting to prevent Rochas Okorocha from being President of Nigeria and to prevent Buhari from succeeding where others failed. We are too wise to fall for their antics.

You need to ask anyone from Ojoto the reputation of Annie Okonkwo. Annie Okonkwo that constructed an overhead water tank in his native village and said that he had constructed water borehole as part of his constituency project. On the commissioning day the tap was opened and water flowed and there was great rejoicing. But after the commissioning, water never flowed again. It turned out that Annie Okonkwo simply got the tank filled with water just for commissioning; there is actually no borehole. In his own village!

That is the kind of person Obiano is partnering with. Obiano is a fraud.

What do you know about sourcing water in Igbo heartland plain? Boreholes are do difficult to get water and most times you succeed they dry up fast. The lower parts of Southeast you can get a working borehole for just 50k but in a place like Ojoto 5million is cheap if you succeed.

Abbycite:
Now let's set d record straight on this Tinubu ish....

I dont believed that he was 'demystified' in anyway. What really happen is that he tried to punch above his weight and he was knock out.

B4 2015 election, Tinubu was just another state party leader with occassional influence outside Lagos just like the Saraki of Kwara. But definitely Tinubu influence was starting to grow even outside Lagos but not to d extent of him determining what happens all over Nigeria.

However, when APC won d 2015 election due to d efforts of many pple and d toxicity of GEJ reputation, the jostle for APC power started. That is where Tinubu tried to be on top of so many issues at once. He probably 4get dat the efforts of others too has to be compensated. In his efforts to control everything, he overreached and he get burnt.

APC as it stand b4 d election comprised of 3 major group. The Buhari's group, Tinubu group and d disgruntled PDP group. Pple 4get easily that without the nPDP group, there is no way Buhari would av won d election. Tinubu in his wisdom decide to sideline this important group in d scheme of things. Buhari already has d President slot, Tinubu got d VP slot and d nPDP want d senate slot. But no, Tinubu want that too. And that is d genesis of his problem.

That is why till today, when there is a political battle to be fought in APC, this group always allign with anybody that represent Tinubu's foe. It doesnt matter what they will get out of it. The mantra was to cut his influence b4 it drown everyone of them and sadly for Tinubu, they are suceeding in this....


You know what's up big time. The problem is the former PDP Governors led by Saraki and my suggestion is that Tinubu should settle with them.

Well one man's food is another man's poison and 2ndly you cannot eat your cake and still have. I like the way Nigeria is going now because the future will be bright after the sacrifice and we shall never develop without sacrifice on the part of both leaders and followers.

The sector I will score this government far below expectation is power. It remains the biggest bane to our industrial revolution and I thought that within 2 years something worth celebrating should be there. Well they have up till June next year for me to pass my judgement.

The biggest success is in agriculture and self reliance. I never believed I would one day eat Nigerian rice but I am now not only a full time consumer but have established a rice factory whereas as at May 2015 I gave Nigerian rice no chance in my house.

For the 1st time we have Nigerians making Nigerian Army kit and VIPs patronizing Nigeria made clothings and footwears. If the trend continues by 2026 we will cut our forex demand by at least 50%

Politics / Re: Ikwerres Went Against Igbo Colonisation In Elechi Amadi's Autobiography by Abagworo(m): 11:04pm On Nov 30
HopeAtHand:


Okpo Wagidi version is the one used by the people of Isiokpo and Etche as their history. Every Ikwerre clan cannot have the same history. But the one that covers a greater percentage of the clans is the Akalaka ancestry and from it you have the spread of Ikwerre towns/communities mostly in Emohua LGA and some parts of Ikwerre LGA. The people of Port Harcourt and Obio/Akpor are descendants of the downward migration and Aro activities.

Emohua is a fringe area inhabited by mix of Ikwerre proper and migrants from many places including Abua, Engenni, Ekpeye, Ogba and Kalabari. The heart of Ikwerre is Isiokpo axis.

Feel free to answer the question above, u might know the answer. All i know is that igbo is a component of various arms and clans that make up our linguistics.

If we create an igbo or igboid language school, we wont have to mix igbo with English anymore, becos we will find a word for everything from our various clan, even noun, pronouns, adjectives and verbs etc.

I don't believe Ikwerre is Igbo but I know the language and people are related. Many Ikweres don't understand central Igbo especially the fringe communities but they understand central Ikwerre. My argument is about the disgraceful act of some Ikwerre people that attempt to distort history in a petty manner. Many Americans know they are from Europe and speak English like Britons but they've not tried to distort history claiming to be from Japan even when every evidence points to Europe. The Ikwerres involved in the nonsense are as stupid as the Igbos claiming to be Jews whereas every evidence points to us being Congo.

HopeAtHand:


You've written very well.

As an Ikwerre, i have to add that ancestry is the primary distinguishing factor between the Ikwerres and the Igbos. Our forebears have passed down our oral history, the story of our origins and it is exactly what we pass down to our kids.

While Igbos claimed to have migrated from Isreal, and settled in Nri, the Ikwerres have the story of Akalaka and his sojourn away from Benin to our present location. Igbos in their usual nature will not accept the Ikwerre history, but we dont care, as we are not minutely bothered by how they feel.

There are germans who after WWII, travelled to Brazil, settled there and became assimilated into Brazilian culture and language. After 70yrs, if you see their children and grandchildren, you'll refer to them as descendants of the portuguese but if they told you they are germans by ancestry, you'd have a hard time believing it.

Obviously, Iwhnrohna settled with his young family in an area where he was greatly influenced by Igbos, as visible in words and some aspects of culture. But No matter the level of assimilation, our ancestry is the reason we set ourselves aside and chose to be recognised as Ikwerres. It is something we have pursued and achieved.

Again, we do not care if Igbos aren't comfortable with our history, they can do absolutely nothing about it.

No amount of linguistic gymnastics can distort glaring factors at least to the wise. Akalaka is a known ancestor of Akpohia and Ogba who got mixed with Ikpa Igbos already living in Orashi area for years. Akalaka himself was a Delta Igbo hence the ancestral land is simply Idu referring mostly to across the Niger and not Benin city proper. Ikwerre has no link with Akalaka exceot of course like 5 years ago when some online Ikwerre activists tried to link the story if Ikuruoda with Ihuruoha in a petty manner. Remnants of Ekpeye people actually migrated into Emohua part of Ikwerre area but the root of core Ikwerre which is Isiokpo/Elele is Cross River Igbos that migrated alongside Aros to Ozuzu in Etcheland and moved further to settle at Isiokpo. Okpo Wagidi is the father of Ihuruoha and not Akalaka. If you are sincere you will admit that all his lineage is traceable and many of his grandchildren moved down to settle at Diobu, Igwuocha or Port Harcourt.

Why did this incident in Port Harcourt in 1963 happen

Why did the Ikwerre insist on their own Bible?

Ogbakor Ikwerre is no different from Ogbakor Aro or Oha Uratta or every other Ogbakor, Otu or Oha in Igboland. It's a union of kinsmen founded to protect the interest of the immediate group. It means absilutely nothing in the Ikwerre vs Igbo endless debate.
