just yesterday, when voting was still going on in Edo state election , she hurriedly concorted some fake result in favour of PDP.she is free to post her news here but such news must be verified before getting to the front page.

So bro you finally accept that there isn't any difference between both parties?? and APC deceived us with change? ? grin

I wasn't deceived because I know of happenings around me. I love Buhari from time and will always do. I only quoted this thread by Ngeneukwenu which is a classic that will always come up for a long time to come

http://www.nairaland.com/2902864/supreme-court-ruling-wike-vs


NgeneUkwenu:
The supreme Court as the final arbiter, has brought to an end, a legal tussle between Nyesom Wike and Peterside Dakuku on the validity or otherwise of the election conducted in April in Rivers State by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

While I am saddened by the judgment that emanated from the Supreme Court, in which, in their "well considered" opinion, set aside the decision of the Election Tribunal and that of Appeal court on the subject matter, but affirmed The election that brought Nyesom Wike into power, as a legitimate and proper one. Though this seems in variance with public outcry both within and outside the country that followed the election, that had been described by many, as the most murderous, Violence- filled, and rigged election ever conducted anywhere in the Country. I am more worried for the fate of the opposition in the elections that are going to be held from now on.

Should The Opposition Be Worried?
I don't think many people especially of the PDP, have not realized the implication of the said judgment in the "life" of free and fair election in the Country, from now on.
It would be recalled that INEC, worried by the cases of incessant ballot snatching, tampering of voters register, snatching of result sheets and other electoral vices, genuinely came up with a masterstroke...a technology called Card Reader Machines, which sole aim was, to instill fear in the would be election riggers and also to render their "efforts" meaningless to an extent.

Consequently, to the Crédit of The Card Readers, a certain President Buhari Of the then opposition party (APC) Won an election, Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo(PDP) Won election in APC filled State, Rochas Okorocha Won an election in a PDP Filled State Of Imo etc.

The implication of the Judgment:
Recall, the major ground of Nyesom Wike's Appeal, was on the non admissibility of the Card reader as a part of the election guidelines as enshrined in the Electoral Act and the 1999 constitution as amended, which the Supreme court in their opinion agreed with Wike and discarded the Use Card Readers as a part of election process.

Now what has the Apex Court done? It has returned INEC to the era of Manual accreditation and validation of voters card. It has returned everybody to the era of the "highest rigger takes all". It has energized ballot snatches. In fact it has removed every normalcy in the conduct of subsequent elections.. Yes that is what the Supreme Court has done..

So when next you hear of a political Party boasting of winning all the contested seats, it is not a fluke, it is achievable. And if you are contemplating of going to court, anyway I wish you "Supreme Court" luck..

~Miss Ngene.

Thank you for that observation. The Edo election has been endorsed as one of the best in Nigerian history by all parties and the figures I am seeing shows minimal vote inflation. Obaseki has won and the wailing session was temporarily delayed.

I rely more on neutral people for information than party affiliates which makes my predictions right most of the time. Elections are won more by intrigues than voting proper.

Politics / Re: The End Of Crude Oil And Its Implications for The Igbo Identity In Rivers State by Abagworo(m): 10:31am On Sep 28
bigfrancis21:
The introduction of the fracking process has dealt a huge blow on the international crude oil market. Since the fracking technique boomed in the US in October 2014, the U.S. has shed roughly 100,000 oil and gas industry jobs, some 16 percent of employment at its peak. The U.S. economy has added over 3.5 million jobs in other sectors over the same period.



Read more: Fracking Definition | Investopedia http://www.investopedia.com/terms/f/fracking.asp#ixzz4LWE3rVQ7

The discovery of the fracking process dealt a huge blow on the international crude oil market and it has helped the US and Canada to effectively maximize crude oil extraction in its own borders, thus, heavily reducing its reliance on crude oil imports from other countries. Before the fracking boom, the US and Canada were major crude oil importers, importing huge amounts of crude oil from countries such as Nigeria, Algeria, etc. needed to support the energy demands of its population. With the huge reduction in demand by the US and Canada for crude oil importation, international crude oil prices fell from as high as $140 before to between $30 to $45 per barrel. This has left a huge scar on the economies of oil producing countries that rely on oil exports for survival. Many of these countries have been battling to find their feet since their major source of income was largely diminished. The impact has been felt worldwide, most oil companies have laid off oil and gas staff workers. Within 2 years, the Nigerian economy has fallen into a recession. From all indications, the international oil market does not seem likely to rebound to its former lucrative status, at least, not in the next 100 years.

What then does this imply for the oil-producing Igbo-speaking communities of Rivers state, where many members deny their Igboness, partly due to the impetus derived from crude oil discovery in their backyards? Crude oil discovery in many communities in Nigeria has caused war and division between formerly united and peaceful people. The creation of oil-rich Rivers state in the late 90s and the inclusion of Igbo-speaking oil-producing communities, such as Egbema, Obigbo/Oyigbo, etc., in this new state has been a driving factor in leading many of them to deny being Igbo to curry favour with the Nigerian government. These communities have since then enjoyed their newfound friendship and status with the FG to the detriment of their relationship with their Igbo-speaking relatives in the SE. The crash in the oil market brings with it new implications. Now, crude oil is no longer valued as it used to be. When the US sells its fracking technology to other countries and other countries adopt the fracking process, the international oil market is doomed and the international demand for crude oil further reduces, thus reducing Nigeria's crude oil exports and potential earnings as the demand is no longer there. This would prompt Nigeria to look at exploring other possible sources of income. With the chips down and the politics of crude oil fading away, are these communities starting to realize that they no longer enjoy a titled status with the FG as before as their crude oil is now of little value? What does this imply for Igbo unity? Can we expect these people to reach out in efforts to re-unite and reaffirm their Igbo identity? A few months ago, an Ikwerre youth, Adiele Samuel, openly proclaimed his Igbo identity on the internet. In recent times, I've seen more and more Igbo-speaking people from Rivers and Delta states re-affirming their Igbo identity, this being most likely due to the fading away of the importance and independence attached to crude oil. Like big brothers looking out for their younger ones, are the Igbos of the SE willing to welcome these people back into the Igbo fold with embracing arms? Or would they continue to propagate their distinctness regardless?

Please take note bigfrancis21 Igbos in Rivers State have never denied their heritage to warrant this thread. Oyigbo and Egbema have not at any time attacked Southeasterners or deny being Igbo. Ikwerre, Etche and Ogba are not Igbos and owe us no apology for their political choice.

You're right bro. The Igbo language is like a big umbrella accomodating all Igbo groups in every area and clime. An Ika man for instance does'nt need to understand Igbo Izugbe before he tells what an Nnewi man is saying, so fort and so on. I for instance understand Ika, Ukwuani and Ikwerre no matter how much the speaker try to twist the phonetics. Most to the dismay of my Owa friend who kept asking me whether I usually eavesdrop on his family whenever they speak their Ika in close doors.

What you just wrote is a fallacy. You cannot claim to understand every Igboid dialect without actually living or interacting with the speakers. Maybe when written down you can deduce the meaning using the similarity in lexis or the shared words. Ika will be difficult for even Onitsha Ugbo to understand not to talk of Imo State lime you. In Igbo language you understand dialects proximal to yours or you've interacted with.

I don't get you at all. Igbanke people wrote a petition and yet you are arguing with them. Obi of Agbo's name is Ikenchukwu which is an Ika name or you are one of those Bini trying to erase Ika heritage of Igbanke because of the Igbo similarity Like they wrote in that petition Ika names like Chikwe were modified to Ehikwe in order to spund similar to Bini. IMHO changing names is only a factor but I doubt if it can change the heritage.

Now read patiently as written by Igbanke people.

INTRODUCTION

Language and culture are two of the most fundamental factors that unite and identify a people . A people and their race go into extinction once their language is dead. Once a group of people who share similar linguistic and cultural affinity are dismembered or have other language and culture super-imposed on them, the resultant effect is gradual, systematic and eventual disintegration of the people, their language and culture.A classical example of a people who have suffered aforementioned linguistic and cultural annihilation were the Sects. Sects, the original owner of the present-day England were, in the 4th century, attacked by the three Germanic tribes- Jutes, Saxons and Anglo-Saxons. The imposition of the dialects of the three Germanic tribes led to the total extinction of the Sectic language.Though, the descendants of the Sects are still in England, but their linguistic and cultural identity have gone into oblivion.To this extent, the people of Igbanke in Orhionmwon Local Government Area, Edo state are face the Sects experience. Igbanke is one of the few Ika-speaking communities in Edo state. For this singular reason, they are subjected to all forms of discriminations and marginalization.

STATEMENT OF FACTS ON THE SUBJECT MATTER

The language and culture of the good people of Igbanke are losing their envious identity and relevance in culture-linguistic market-place in Edo state in particular and Nigeria at large.Several reasons are evidently present to support the fears and anxiety of the people of Igbanke that our identity as a people would go into sudden extinction if urgent measures are not quickly taken to address our emasculation by Bini language dominance. The following points support the facts of the subject matter:1) Igbanke is one of the few communities in Edo state that speak Ika language2) Igbanke is located in Orhionmwon Local Government Area, Edo state.3) Igbanke, by name is in Orhionmwon LGA, but geographically, we do not share common boundary with any community in the council4) From the eastern flank, Igbanke shares common boundary with Mbiri, an Ika speaking community in Delta stae, from west, it’s bounded by Oghada, another Ika speaking community in Uhunmwode LGA in Edo state. In the northern sphere, Igbanke has boundary with Ekpon, Ika speaking community in Igueben LGA while from the south, it has Agbor and Oza-Nogogo, Ika communities in Delta state as neighbours.5) Igbanke is in Edo south senatorial district6) Igbanke people and community came under the Bini empire during the latter’s expantionist programme.7) Most of other Ika speaking communities that were conquered by Bini empire same time with Igbanke have gotten their independence in Delta state while Igbanke, Oghada, Otobaye, Iru, Ekpon and Ogbeka etc are selfishly scattered in three local government areas with the attendant linguistic discrimination and political marginalization. Igbanke are gradually losing their linguistic and cultural identity as a result of our involuntary affiliation to the Bini language-speakers dominated Orhionmwon LGA.

ISSUES FROM THE STATEMENT OF FACTS

Consequent upon the facts drawn from the subject matter, some issues could be deduced to support Igbanke search for linguistic and cultural identity. These issues would go a long way in justifying our position.1)Igbanke was deliberately, but selfishly carved into Edo state during the 1991 state creation irrespective of the linguistic difference between the people of Igbanke and the dominant Bini speaking population of the state.2) Over 96% of Ika speaking communities in the defunct Bendel state were carved into Delta state while Igbanke and a handful other Ika speaking communities were severed into Edo state where they are presently subjected to acute linguistic and sundry discriminations3) Because of linguistic factor, the people of Igbanke feel more at home with their kiths and kins (Ika speaking people) in Edo and Delta states.4) Igbanke is made up of six (6) autonomous clans: Ake/Obiogba, Idumu-Odin, Igbontor, Oligie, Omolua and Ottah. These clans were governed by traditional rulers called ‘’Eze or Obi’’. These terms were of Ika origin, but have been forcefully changed to ‘’Enogie’’ a Bini term by the conquering Binis.5) Our ancestral heritage like language, names and beliefs are being systematically destroyed by the domineering power of the Binis.

ARGUMENTS IN SUPPORT OF ISSUES RAISED

1)Most Igbanke indigenes who have Ika ancestral names like, “Emeka”, “Maduka”, “Chukwuka’’, “Chinyere”, “Amaka and “Ogorchukwu etc are often confronted with all forms of harrowing experiences when there are needs to visit our council headquarters, Abudu to process one official documents or the other. We are often denied the issuance of documents like, ‘’Certificate of Local Government of origin’’, Protest Letter’’, To Whom it May Concern’’ etc on the guise that we are Igbos not Binis.2) Those who have the likes of the Ika aforementioned names, but can speak Bini language are rarely subjected to the above embarrassments and discriminations. This act goes a long way to vindicate our fear that there is a subtle, but carefully planned agenda to make us lose and abandon our ancestral linguistic and cultural heritage.3) In order to escape from these unnecessary embarrassments, some have no other option left than to change their identity from Ika to Bini names.4) Today, we, the good people of Igbanke are gradually losing our once envied linguistic and cultural identity.5) Some of the eminent sons and daughters of Igbanke, whom out of their outstanding contributions to the development of the community, were recognized and given chieftaincy titles had had such titles changed from their original Ika origin to Bini equivalence. For example, few years ago, one of our sons who addressed himself as “Chief Orike-Eze” in Oba of Benin palace was shamefully harassed, insulted and forcefully forced, right in the palace to change the title to its Bini version. According to the palace, the title, “Orike-Eze” had its origin from Ika and Igbo nations.5) Most times, when we have cause to attend meetings with the Binis in our local government area or senatorial district, deliberations are often conducted in Bini in language without considering the fact that the people of Igbanke in such meeting neither speak nor understand the language. Often than not, when we attend such meetings, we left the venue more confused than we were before we went.6) In Edo state, Igbanke is only tolerated, not respected, seen, but not accepted. Today, in Edo state, plans are underway by the state Ministry of Education to introduce the teaching of Bini language in Primary and Secondary schools across Edo south senatorial district including Igbanke. Unfortunately, our indigenous language, Ika is not in any way considered qualified and appropriate to be taught in schools in Igbanke. To us, its another deliberate attempt to send our linguistic identity into extinction.7) Our people have also suffered several inexplicable discriminations when it comes to political appointments. During the 2013 Edo state local government elections, one of our sons, Mr. Peter Ikem was refused to contest the chairmanship position in Orhionmwon local government area. Reason? His surname, “Ikem” was an Igbo, not Bini name.

PRAYERS/ RELIEFS SOUGHT

Sir, based on the foregoing, we therefore, solemnly ask for the folling:1) A local government be created that would comprise all Ika speaking communities scattered in Orhionmwon, Uhunmwode and Igueben LGAs of Edo state. Some of the Ika speaking communities in Edo stateinclude:Orhionmwon LGA ----Igbanke, Iru, Ohezenaka, Otobaye, UgbekaUhunmwode LGA ----- OghadaIgueben LGA ------- Ekpon2) Where, for any reason, creation of a local government area that would consist all Ika speaking communities is not in the immediate possible or feasible, we therefore ask that Igbanke be severed from Edo state and merged with our kiths and kins in Ika south local government area in Delta state.3) The people of Igbanke should be seen, recognized and accepted as Ika people residing in Edo.4) That Igbanke people, based on our forceful membership of Edo state, reserved the natural and inalienable right to decide, at any time, either to continue our membership with the Binis in Edo state or join our Ika kiths and kins in Delta state.

CONCLUSION

Igbanke is an Ika speaking community in Orhionmwon local government, Edo stateWe, the people Igbanke are gradually losing our linguistic and cultural identity as a result of our forceful membership with the Binis through conquest.If urgent measures are not taken, our linguistic and cultural identity would sooner than later go into sudden extinction. In order to avoid the impending extermination of our race, we therefore, ask that a local government area be created that would consist of Igbanke and other Ika speaking communities in Edo state.Alternatively, if local government creation is not feasible or possible, Igbanke, should therefore, be severed from Edo state and merged with Ika south local government area in Delta state.

Is there anyway of making any meaningful change if you don't take things personal and effect the change you want to see? You have complained so much about the types of houses you think should be in places you think.

I just advised you to take a step further, complain to the appropriate authorities since you are uncomfortable with what you see. Making comments on nairaland cannot change anything on the ground. I don't just visit Port Harcourt, I also live in Port Harcourt and have built over 16 houses there.

Be the change you want to see.

If you've actually relocated to Port Harcourt that's good as you will explore newer challenges. Over here people build more of duplex than block of flats anyway but your challenge will be the terrain as many areas are swampy.

As for me being an example read this.



Similarly, a section of the law prescribed that “it is an
offence to erect shanty within the Owerri Capital Territory”,
and defaulters shall be liable to three months imprisonment
or N100,000 fine or both.
“Failure to comply with directives of Imo State Government
to renovate a dilapidated structure within Owerri Capital
City, shall be an offence and if defaulted, such building
shall be sealed by the Imo State Government”, the Bill
prescribed.
However, in a subtle way of not making the law to look as if
it was principally targeted at Ekeukwu Owerri, government
made three other additions.
“No Attention of any structure considered a shanty within the
Owerri Capital Territory. All drainage shall be kept clean
and made to allow free flow of drainage water at all times
by all residents”, the Bill prescribed.
Another arm of this Bill, which an Owerri indigene called
“the diversionary tactics of the state government, is the
prescribed decent look of houses in the city”.
The Bill states: “Houses within the Owerri Capital City must
maintain a decent look, in compliance to the directive from
the Imo State Government, from time to time”.

Its hard knowing when the Igbo or the when the Ikwerre part of you will turn up, you are simply an avoidable risk.

I never for once said that Ndiigbo were responsible for the emergence of the Ogbia man as the VP, I made it clear that we hand no control over his emergence, but simply supported him, once he emerged next in line to Yaradua's throne.

The only senseless one here is you, gloating over lack of success of IPOB order,and then trying to villify Ndiigbo for Odili failures, shame on you.

You still got it all wrong. IPOB is busy fighting Igbos that they should elevate because they are PDP funded that's all. Imo State has the highest number of pro Biafra but we hate IPOB because they are attacking our Governor without reason. None of their members has ever been killed in Imo State and our Governor has never attacked them verbally or otherwise but everyday they fight Rochas Okorocha because they don't want him to be politically relevant. Can you mention one thing Okorocha has done wrong against IPOB?

Ndigbo waste more energy fighting their stars than elevating them because of jealousy. We need to understand that no politician is a saint and stop the pull him down mentality once and for all.

this is a good thing as it would reduce the marauding tricycles causing confusion in the city.

I so much dislike the sight of tricycles on major roads. They should move into the hinterland as Owerri develops.

I don't have anything to say to you again, just remember that you must read whatever you're sowing.

Why not dare me by mentioning the city. I live in Port Harcourt and there are hundreds of bad roads here and hundreds of good ones too. If I am a political jobber I can go about snapping photos of various bad roads to blackmail the Governor or to ridicule Rivers State. What you people are doing cannot change fact that Owerri has good roads compared with other cities.
