|Music/Radio / Suge Knight Shot Multiple Times by Abagworo(m): 12:25am On Aug 25|
Former Death Row Records owner Marion "Suge" Knight is reportedly in a California hospital after being shot multiple times at popular late night club 1OAK.
According to reports, the shooting went down around 1:30 AM Sunday (August 24) morning.
A source close to Suge tells us ... he was shot in the stomach and arm. Tyson Beckford, Robert Ri'chard and Apple de Ap all tell TMZ ... they were inside the pre-VMA party hosted by Chris Brown when they heard 4 shots ring out inside the club. Suge walked out on his own power ... a cop spotted him and walked the rap mogul to the police car where Suge sat. Suge was then put in an ambulance and taken to a local hospital. (TMZ)
Knight is reportedly one of multiple civilians who suffered gunshot wounds.
We do not know the seriousness of Suge's injuries. Multiple sources now tell us Suge was one of 3 people were were shot. At least 1 is in critical condition. Sheriff's deputies had guns drawn as clubgoers exited with their hands in the air right after the shooting. The night started with tension. An hour-and-a-half before the shots, Game came to the club and he and his buddies got into an altercation with security guards ... there was a full-on fight. (TMZ)
Despite having his music contract blasted by Knight, rap star Game recently downplayed their situation and acknowledged the entertainment mogul's veteran knowledge.
"Suge is an OG, he know a lot of stuff. He got inside connections," Game said when approached by paparazzi. "You never know what Suge know. He might be right. He might be wrong. But he know some sh*t." (TMZ)
Although on good terms with Knight, Game admitted Suge may have went too far by publicly discussing his contract on television a few months ago.
"He was saying, something I think about me and Kendrick's contracts not being right," Game said in an interview with Tim Westwood. "Suge is normally the homie but discussing other people's business all on TV? It is what it is. Number one, no new artist comes in and gets the deal of a lifetime. Nah. Especially artists these days. When I came in, I met somebody, I signed to them because they had faith they could take me to Dre and then I got with Dre and Dre put me with 50. So it was what it was." ("Tim Westwood TV"

I beg to disagree with you. None of the things you wrote above was done by the past administrations. Okorocha has rebuilt Orlu from the scratch and with very good and wide drainage system. None of the roads constructed by Okorocha in Orlu is water logged. The Umuna flood problem has been in existence for decades but Okorocha came and tackled it and it has been reduced though not completely solved. Flooding is a world bank project everywhere but Okorocha has tried. Even the Mgbee erosion which nearly cut off Ideato from the rest of Imo State was controlled without world bank assistance as a result of its urgency. If Okorocha or like mind rules Imo State for 6 years, Imo will be on another level. Already his ideas are paying off.

They are now fighting to prevent NBA from holding their scheduled convention in Owerri. They are scared of 20,000 strong NBA seeing things with their own eyes and informing the world. They are citing "ebola" as a reason when Imo has no near case ever recorded. I'm even scared these people just like they attempted bombing Owerri might try to use ebola as a weapon against Imo State masses.

Wisdom is a virtue. Let them continue lying and trying their best to twist the truth that Imo is today the fastest developing State and Owerri is the best all round city today after Abuja and probably Calabar.
|Politics / Imo State Agrees Energy, Waste Contract With German Firm by Abagworo(m): 10:00pm On Aug 18|
ENTRADE Energiesysteme AG has received a major order for the establishment of a state-wide energy and waste management system from Imo State, a statement said on Monday.
Under the agreement, which has been concluded with Governor Rochas Okorocha, ENTRADE will initially set up 200 energy and recycling stations in the state capital, Owerri. This part of the planned project is to be completed by the end of 2015, followed by the optional construction of up to 2,300 further regional supply centres throughout the entire state. ENTRADE will operate these centres itself, both processing waste and then selling the electricity which is generated.
The aim is to build up a comprehensive power-supply network, based on the micro biomass generators developed by ENTRADE with an individual electrical output of 20 kW. These are to be fuelled mainly with bamboo pellets.
“This fast-growing raw material could for the most part solve our current power-supply problems”, Prof. Okee Okoro from the state’s Ministry of Energy and the Environment said.
“This pioneering project is therefore highly significant not only for our federal state but for the entire country of Nigeria.”
|Politics / Re: Jonathan Is Inciting Christains Against Muslims To Win 2015 Election-Amaechi by Abagworo(m): 9:48pm On Aug 18|
That's the thing about Jonathan I dislike. His campaign strategy is staking the lives of Igbos by creating an atmosphere of enmity between Muslims and Christians. The final losers are Igbos as we will be pitched against our various host communities during the war or crisis that will follow this demonic campaign strategy.

Everywhere you wrote up there has already gotten roads, schools and hospitals within these past 3 years or do you want to deny that? Rochas is just too much. When I look at this your list it proves nothing is impossible even with small revenue. God bless him.
|Politics / Re: Professor Viola Onwuliri On Okorocha & The Iriji Maise new Yam Festival by Abagworo(m): 8:57am On Aug 18|
I can see that you called me out to tap from my advanced knowledge but unfortunately I won't engage you after this. Lying won't change the fact that Okorocha has performed a million folds better than all the Governors ever to rule Imo State combined. The Orlu-Owerri federal highway is being dualized and very soon we'll have Orlu and Owerri as one city. The Aba-Owerri highway had been dualised up to Nekede junction before FG came with their wahala and today left the road abandoned. 305 new primary schools have been built and 27 standard hospitals are at various advanced stages of completion. Most rural areas in Imo State have been connected by tarred roads with drainages in just 3 years.
As for Ihedioha and the others I advice PDP to field them and you will watch them win only 3 Mbaise areas alone. It is just a matter of Rochas sponsoring jingles depicting them as snakes and the election is won.

Sealeddeal: Earlier in his welcome address, the Deputy Speaker,
Reading this will give even a toddler an insight into what happened. My argument is that both Ihedioha's supporters and Okorocha's supporters are Mbaise youths but Vanguard reported like Okorocha's supporters are from some other place and were fighting with Mbaise youths.

|Politics / Re: Mayhem Averted As Okorocha’s Supporters, Mbaise Youths Clash by Abagworo(m): 5:49pm On Aug 17|
If not Mbaise youths, who then are Rochas supporters? Are you saying that foreigners came to Mbaise to intimidate their youths. LMFAO! Meanwhile here's a picture again from Mbaise.
|Politics / Re: Mayhem Averted As Okorocha’s Supporters, Mbaise Youths Clash by Abagworo(m): 3:02pm On Aug 17|
Vanguard is beginning to lose credibility if indeed they can descend this low to release falsehood as a news story. Mbaise was divided between Okorocha and the rest while far majority was for Okorocha. The festival started and ended well while Okorocha shared the yam and ate it with jubilant Mbaise youths. Tufiakwa! to vanguard if they actually wrote this. Ihedioha and Okorocha just took political swipes at themselves without bitterness. They joked and smiled while Ihedioha even served Okorocha some kola amidst laughter.
|Politics / Re: Peter Obi Resignes From APGA BOT by Abagworo(m): 8:21am On Aug 16|
omenka: He resigned his position in the party but didn't leave the party. What part of the writeup doesn't the Op understand
My heart is gladdened each time I read contributions from well informed intelligent people like you. Peter Obi has not left APGA but will surely leave like others. Victor Umeh is evil and is even holding Obiano to ransome today as Obiano is paying him 40million Naira monthly aimed at raising 5.6billion from Anambra money for Umeh's senatorial ambition. I will be the least surprised person if Obiano leaves APGA for Umeh.
Most people who condemn Rochas for leaving APGA know little about how the whole APC thing came to be. Umeh was the one who negotiated with ACN and ANPP for a merger with APGA and when things were already concluded he collected money from PDP and made a U-turn claiming Rochas went alone. The real founder of APGA Chekwas Okorie has long left the party.
|Politics / Re: Peter Obi Resignes From APGA!! by Abagworo(m): 9:58pm On Aug 15|
Immediate past governor of Anambra state, Mr Peter Obi, has resigned his position as the leader of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and Chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees. Mr Obi’s action took everybody, including his close friends and loyalists, unawares.
The former governor, however, chose to remain as an ordinary member of APGA.
A reliable source close to Obi told Ekekeee that the former governor took the decision because the party has been dilly-dallying on ratifying Obi’s leadership of the party.
It will be recalled that the National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Grand Alliance had, in January this year, appointed Peter Obi as the party’s National Leader and the Chairman of its Board of Trustees (BOT) to replace the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.
The party’s National Chairman, Victor Umeh, had in early December 2013 read a communique after the NWC meeting, stating that the choice of Obi was due to his contributions towards keeping the party alive in the past 11 years and for particularly ensuring that an APGA member succeeded him in office.
Yet it’s looking like Obi resigned the two positions because the same Victor Umeh has not been forthcoming in speeding up Peter Obi’s ratification as the party’s leader.
Our source said, “You know Peter Obi is a decent man. He wouldn’t want to be connected with anything going wrong in the party when, in truth, his leadership of the party has not been ratified.”
|Politics / Re: Peter Obi Resignes From APGA!! by Abagworo(m): 9:52pm On Aug 15|
More like he resigned as BOT chairman. Okorocha is finally being vindicated.

chino24: Good! Do you know that that was why i wanted to meet some of you one on one. Abagworo once boasted to own shipyard in ph but when I stormed Ph to meet the ship-owner he bolted. Eggy boasted to be working in the presidency but he bolted when chino landed to meet him. Where are you and how can I locate it?
Chino I never claimed to own a ship oh but I pray to own one Insha Allah. I however made it clear that at age 25 I already made a million Dollars and still stand by that. I don't think I will ever want to meet you again going by the details of you I've seen here. You will pose a security risk to me.
|Education / Re: Top Five Universities In The South East by Abagworo(m): 7:56am On Aug 15|
oluwasegunfummi: Being a good school isn't all about aesthetics or structures, its all about infrastructure for students. MOUAU is equipped as far as nigeria is concerned.
You are absolutely right in that sense. MOUAU probably has the best equipped research institute. I've had some foreigners visit Umudike for some research and came back telling me they never knew such thing existed in Nigeria. That it is comparable to what obtains in advanced countries.
|Education / Re: Top Five Universities In The South East by Abagworo(m): 7:33am On Aug 15|
ABSU is the finest school in the East when it comes to general beauty and environmental friendliness but the credit is not Mbakwe's as it was built in the late 80s or early 90s long after Mbakwe was out of Government. ABSU just like Imo Airport were built with contributions from the Imo State citizens as Nigeria was too poor then for States to embark on such projects. Ike Nwachukwu deliberately left the area earmarked for it around Mbaise and went to build it in his area of Isuikwuato. Today it has been seeded to Abia while the Airport was seeded to Imo.
|Politics / Re: Chino! If Anambra Is So Beautiful, Why Are You Trying To Run From It?! by Abagworo(m): 7:09am On Aug 15|
There's no battle between me and anyone. When I was warning you people against condemning every other Igbo State you refused to heed to my call. You were busy writing all sorts of bad things against Imo, Abia and Ebonyi people instead of to understand that we share same problems. I still insist that you and your cohorts should invest your energy in promoting peace amongst Igbos than causing disunity.

Even the flyovers are barely 4. There is no basis for comparison between a village and a city. Bonny is much more advanced than all of AKS. Eleme LGA is more advanced than the entire AKS. Most of those making the baseless comparison are doing so because of party affiliation.

prophetone: Gov. Rabi'u Musa Kwankwaso of Kano state in a group picture with 25 students that were sponsored to study Marine Engineering in India last year. They are now proceeding to the UK to continue their studies for 3 more years.
I'm quite impressed with this. Most times Nigerians criticise based on party affiliation but turn blind eye to some excellent initiatives like this one. God bless Kwankwaso and all that understand the value of education to the poor.
