Politics / Re: Soldiers Arrest Thugs Who Invaded Rivers LGA Ahead Of Re-run Election. Photos by Abagworo(m): 1:26pm
Nigerians don't just believe in free and fair elections. Umuetche should just make their choice devoid of party affiliations.
Politics / Re: Ururuka Road Aba Nearing Completion: Pictures by Abagworo(m): 1:19pm
iamhorny:
kudos to the governor but this road is too narrow, considering the population density in the east. its high time we began to build three lane roads in all our central business district to ease mobility and improve accessibility.

This road reminds me of the road in Orji axis of owerri when ohakim told us he wanted to dualised the road only to give us very narrow road making it even worse. Our leaders need to sit up and stop being mediocre and gullible supporters like you OP need to put them to work if you are close to them.

They should have shunned the concrete dividers and use reflectors + markings to divide the road. That way it will come out wider.
Politics / Re: APC Has Failed Nigeria - Governor Nyesom Wike by Abagworo(m): 10:21am
Wike is trying in road construction et al but by creating division in his State he is the worst thing to happen to Rivers State. APC and PDP are political parties and every Rivers citizen has the right to belong wherever he deems fit but Wike is busy declaring APC membership a sacrilege and misleading people into hating their own brother because of APC.

I beg to differ
Everybody should be check.
If you're into finance you will understand better that it is not easy to make or declare profit(revenue is not profit)

That brings us to an idea which I thought would have been adopted by Nigeria Government. The idea of "luxury tax" . Some cars and houses should be classified as luxury and taxed heavily like 200k to 500k annually in order to reduce our ability to waste. Tinted cars should be charged 100k annually or you remove the tints.

These measures will earn revenue for government and at the same time help balance widening social gap among citizens.
Politics / Re: Video Evidence: When Buhari Promised To Make $1 Equal N1 In 2015. by Abagworo(m): 10:09am

Culture / Re: I Am Not Igbo, I Am Ikwerre! by Abagworo(m): 10:01am
Igboid:
Yes we have similar language.. Our bia (come is your come) but our LA (GO is different from yours) our money..ewhyia is different . U call money ego...

This is crazy and ignorance driven.
Go is said different ways in different parts of Igboland.
In parts of Anambra it's "Puo", in parts of Imo and Abia, it's "Fuo/Ghuo/Puo, in Ezza( Ebonyi) it is " Lufulu", in Ehugbo( still Ebonyi) it's "Sohu".
You know nothing about SE, yet you speak like you do.

Like someone pointed out, Money is not called "Ego" in all parts of SE, some say "Okpoho"/ "Okpo".

Some parts of Imo State equally call money "Awai" and still use "wa" for go. That's Ohaji subgroup and then Uratta subgroup use "li" instead.

I will still maintain that the standard Southern and Northern urban Igbo lingos is the best thing to happen to us. Almost all Igbos understand them while a minor percentage cannot speak urban Igbo.

As for ethnicity Ikwerre isn't Igbo and Igbos should accept that we have no common front in politics or identity. The arguments should purely be about language and history.
Romance / Re: Can A Man love and Be sexually Faithful To One Woman? by Abagworo(m): 9:48am
God created man polygamous but Europeans decided to force monogamy on the Church and eventually accepted by most Christian communities or adopted by others as population control strategy.

For a man that is naturally "libidous" one wife can never be enough because there will be some days of menstruation, pregnancy and childbirth. Polygamy helps a man stay faithful and yet satisfied.

nengibo:

So why the translation of the ibibio town name to igbo? Or you want to say thats the original name now.

The major reason Igbos and Ibibios are in good relationship is because they are not suffering from inferiority complex or insecurity like you.

Jaja was an Igbo man from Amaigbo in Isuama that left Bonny to found Opobo in recent history but insecurity will make you deny that obvious truth.

All this google historians, ikot means bush or town, Ikot-Abasi means God's town, why do Igbos have a nack for saying what dey don't know. Paisi stop changing the meaning of ppls town #sad

Nobody ever said Ikot-Abasi is Igbo word but that it means "People of God" or "Ndi Chukwu" when translated to Igbo. Ibibio and Aro are but half brothers . The 1st settlement of Ibibio was at Ibom Arochukwu in Abia State. Igbos later mixed with them to emerge as Aros with Aros retaining Ibom homeland.
Career / Re: Imo Sacks 1,400 LG Workers by Abagworo(m): 4:26pm On Feb 24
Doug07034780891:



Unfortunately Imo state is an ordinary civil servants state who are mostly unpaid year-in, year-out. I just don't know how these mainly poor Imolites are gonna survive in this harsh economic situation. #Spits

If not for people like Ifeanyi Uba, Coscharis, Ibeto etc. Anambra has no government. Do you know that there is no stadium in Anambra State. Ifeanyi Uba built a stadium with his personal money while Obiano was asleep from too much XO. No single new school has been built by Obiano. No single hospital. Individuals from the real Igbo parts of Anambra like Nnewi, Oko, Igboukwu, Oraukwu, Neni, Ozubulu, Okija, Awka etc. ars doing everything for themselves while the lazy Igala man sleeps high on alcohol.

I was only supporting you. Most of us know very well about media gang up against Okorocha hence false stories are published in a bid to run him down. Look at how Punch reported these 2 similar incidents.

Why not give it the right caption "1,400 Ghost Workers"



obailala:
Very commendable move!

Obviously 90% of the people who jumped into the thread throwing insults did not read or are incapable of comprehending what they read in the report.

The NULGE chairman, Mr Ndubuisi Uchehara, while confirming the sack on Thursday in Owerri, declared, however, that the union would not confront the state government over it.


“When you reside in Abuja and draw monthly salaries from a local government in Imo, such persons are not worth NULGE’s time and efforts.

Nigeria would have been better, had it been we truly love ourselves. This Nigerian with 10 G-Wagons must surely have family and friends in dire need of less than 1% of the total worth of those rubbish he keeps there.

I don't agree with you. When I suffer to make my money then I have the right to do what I like with it. I personally like cars and no whistle-blower can stop me from accumulating them in dozens. The whistle blowing should be restricted to only those who have occupied positions in government to enrich themselves and not businessmen who suffered to build their wealth.

Politics / Re: Anambra Governorship Election To Hold November 18 by Abagworo(m): 7:40am On Feb 24
Osyabj:
The next APC Governor of Anambra is Dr. Ifeanyi Uba. No force can stop this from becoming a reality. Take this to any bank and cash it.

Here is why.

Obiano was imposed on d Anambra people by GEJ's goons and INEC. The rigging was so bad that Jega declared the election compromised but Obi paid over 5 Billion to buy d supreme court justices to keep Obiano in power.

Now in November, all d security agencies and the GEJ's corrupt INEC, used to rig Obiano in are now controlled by APC. Thats why all serious contestants, like Dr Ifeanyi Uba, Andy Uba, Nwoye, etc have joined APC.

Now in d APC primary it will be straight fight between Dr Ifeanyi Uba and Sen. Andy Uba. I believe Dr Ifeanyi Uba, backed by Fmr Gov Ngige will emerge as d APC flag bearer.

In d general, Dr Ifeanyi Uba's money will really come to play. D Anambra voters will get the best stomach infrastructure ever. Some analysts suggest that Dr Ifeanyi Uba may pay upto N100-250,000 to each every Anambra voter to guarantee his win.

Even without his money, Dr Ifeanyi Uba is very popular in d densely populated Onitsha and Nnewi. And with Fmr Gov. Chris Ngige's backing, Idemili which extends to Onitsha suburbs of Obosi, Nkpor, Oba, etc will back Dr Ifeanyi Uba in d general election

So forget the Lagos-registered Obi puppet, Thief Obiano, he will be kicked back to Lagos to enjoy his loot in d last 4 years. GEJ's military & INEC, that rigged him in are now controlled by APC.

The next APC governor of Anambra is Dr Ifeanyi Uba.

Obiano is not an Igbo man but Igala. The Igbos occupy the densely populated part of Anambra and are the wealthy ones. Obiano's area is very poor, backward and war torn while Ifeanyi Ubah is from Nnewi which is rich, progressive and peaceful.

Well you might have mixed well with them in social settings.

Mine was in a classroom and just one lady...but AKT are something else. I try to avoid interacting with them as much as possible. They are hyper sensitive and prone to violence over nothing.

It has to do with slavery. The trauma from slavery makes a people hostile to themselves and lose faith in their ability to challenge others intellectually and resort easily to a weak violence at the slightest provocation. That's same character exhibited by most Riverine peoples in Nigeria.

National borders is something that can be used to classify languages. if Ika was in a country different from where SE Igboland is then no one will be arguing with you whether Ika is Igbo or not. But Ika is in Nigeria and contigous with Igboland.

Ika is majorly not part of Igbo in mind and commitment to Igbo things. Language we may share but common fronts we lack.

This is one reason I will always respect Yorubas! Though cunny and negatively smart, THIS TRIBE CAN RESPECT EACH OTHER AND PEOPLE FOR AFRICA! Though Cunny, But I Tuale for them!

If you think am lying, when was the last time you saw Ibadan, Oyo, Ekiti, Osun, Lagos, Ondo fighting each other? On Nairaland? Even though some are Christians and Muslims? Yet you see them coexisting with other peacefully!

The Igbos nko? If Anambra is not fighting Abia, Abia is fighting Imo! If Enugu is not fighting Ebonyi, Ebonyi is fighting Abia... Or Anambra is fighting Imo.

Honestly, I LOVE THE IGBO TRIBE BECAUSE I KNOW WE ARE UNIQUE AND HAVE POTENTIALS... BUT THERE IS SOMETHING FUNDAMENTALLY WRONG WITH THE EGO OF THE IGBO MAN!

Just look at what is going on here?

Anyway, the shitt is funny though!

By the way, Igbos, we need to unite and grow together... Its important.

You are wrong. No 2 Igbo States have ever clashed except Anambra and others. You can never see Imo vs Enugu or Ebonyi vs Imo or Imo vs Abia or Ebonyi vs Enugu or Abia vs Enugu. It is always Anambra vs Enugu or Anambra vs Abia or Anambra vs Imo or Anambra vs Ebonyi. I've dug into it and discovered that it is mostly people from Anambra LGA area with dual ethnicity that are busy doing all they can to pitch the real Igbo Anambrians of Ihiala-Nnewi-Awka-Umunze axis against their real Igno brothers in other States.

Politics / Re: Buhari Is Not Coming Back By Toyin Dawodu by Abagworo(m): 7:22pm On Feb 23
I disagree with any claims blaming Buhari for the economy. That's hypocritical coming from a knowledgeable man. All oil dependent countries are on recession and to add salt to injury Nigerian oil export was highly distorted through sabotage involving destruction of export pipelines in Niger Delta. Common sense tells you that we cannot have enough foreign exchange in such situation when peaceful and oil richer countries like Saudi Arabia are equally having hard times.

The only solution is diversification to other resources which we can see in the development of Agriculture. Any sector dependent on foreign exchange will definitely be slowed down and people will suffer from its effects and that's what is happening in Nigeria now.

Other Igbos are interested in what will unite us except some Igala people whom we assimilated in Anambra State using all their time and resources to belittle other Igbo States in order to create disunity and control our real Igbo brothers that occupy Nnewi, Ihala to Awka and Umunze. Obiano is one of the Igala imposters and will be sent parking this year.
