I wish you could follow me to the end or even criticise Okorocha who is not a saint but trying to declare war on behalf of Anambra against other Igbos is what I am warning about. If other Anambrians fail to caution you then it means a silent war is being bred and it is not in the interest of you Chino and any of your silent supporters.
|Politics / Re: Anambra State Light Of The Nation,economic And Political Power House Of The East by Abagworo(m): 3:48pm|
You must be very silly. How and when did I lure Chino? If you cannot face the truth and scold Chino then it means you are part of the problem. Maybe you think other Igbos are scared of e-fight, let me make it clear that I am even ready for live war. I just mellow down because of my love for Igboland and nothing more. Any attempt by anyone again to shut down either me or any other Igbo will lead to that war. You cannot turn a blind eye to insults and rascality of Chino or all his monikers.
This is my last warning!

IGR: Imo grosses past N1bn
Imo State has grossed past the N1 billion mark in its internally
generated revenue (IGR) by end of September 2014, BusinessDay
reliably gathered from Chike John Okafor, the immediate past
commissioner of finance in the state, who has just resigned his
appointment to pursue a political career at the House of
Representatives by 2015.
The amount indicates an increase of more than 233 per cent
from about N300 million recorded by the state by end of May
2011, when the Governor Rochas Okorocha administration
assumed office in state.
Okafor, a former senior bank manager at Zenith Bank plc
Owerri, before being snapped up in June 2011, from the
financial world by Governor Rochas Okorocha, said, the IGR
jump was as a result of government’s moves to block most of
the revenue leakages in the system.

I have to write this to bring to the notice of real Anambrians and real Igbo the constant temptation by Chino and all his monikers and my constant peaceful approach. From page 1 to 100 of this thread can any one point where I posted pictures of old or new, false or true or attempted to derail this thread or use derogatory words against anyone. Nobody is immune to rascality. We Ogutans and Ikwerrians are warlike people and if pushed to the wall, the madness will spread. All of us know how bad roads in Onitsha, Awka et al are and we have pictures as well as the capability to get a thousand pictures today but I chose not to engage in mudslinging.
Chino is suffering from inferiority complex as a result of his parental background and the environment he grew up. My criticism is same everywhere and I say the truth without favour but for now I will still say it that Peter Obi was a complete scam and until a government comes that will be able to harness the potentials of Onitsha and turn Anambra to the State with IGR of at least 3billion, I will still rate him below average.

Abians need to free themselves and make a people's choice instead of a party's choice.

You and Chino declared me enemy of Anambra in order to shield Peter Obi's cluelessness from the media. I have said it and will still say it again that everything overblown as Obi's achievements by you has been done more and even better by Theodore Orji. Onitsha is no different from Aba in terms of Igbo 4 storey buildings, markets and bad roads. Like Orji, Peter Obi failed to tap into the potentials of Onitsha and develop it as a revenue base or decent shopping destination. All roads leading to Main market were left in disarray and today he is sponsoring media campaign against Obiano citing the roads he failed to do. He left Anambra with the least IGR in the Southeast while in reality Anambra is meant to have the highest.
|Politics / Re: Few Pics From Imo State by Abagworo(m): 4:55pm On Dec 17|
You do not need to enter Owerri proper whether going to or coming from Aba. Okorovha led government already built bypasses. Anybody driving into Owerri has not been there since 2013.

Some people need to understand the difference between NDDC and oil producing States. Abacha's OMPADEC is a better term of reference than NDDC.

LAGOS -- A spokesman for Royal Dutch/Shell Group's (RD,
SC) Nigerian unit said the company has shut in 35,000
barrels-a-day of crude oil at one of its flow stations in the
The spokesman said the company was forced to shut in
the station Monday, after protesters attacked the facility.
The spokesman, Bisi Ojediran, said the community was
protesting against the state's choice of a representative
for the board of the Niger Delta Development
Each of Nigeria's nine oil-producing states has a
representative on the board of the Commission, which
oversees the development of the Niger Delta region.
Ojediran said the oil facilities shut in are the Imo River 1
and 3, in the Owaza Community in Abia State, southeast
Nigeria, which is also part of the Niger Delta.
A statement by Shell on the shutdown says 10 million
standard cubic feet a day of natural gas supplied by Shell
to the Nigerian Gas Company and industries in Aba has
also been affected.
Aba is an industrial town in southeast Nigeria.
Shell , through its joint venture company with the
Nigerian government, Shell Petroleum Development Co.,
is the country's biggest oil producer.

Obi wasted 8 years without fixing those roads and even took a popular picture jumping on filthy road. Obiano is barely 9months and just because he fell out with Obi they are trying to blackmail him with Obi's failure.
I have and will always maintain that the difference between Obi and Orji is media propaganda.
|Politics / Re: Senate Rejects Bill To Recognise Anambra As Oil Producer by Abagworo(m): 3:01pm On Dec 17|
The reality is that Rivers State and Bayelsa are the only States every LGA has oil. Delta has oil in half of their LGAs while Imo, Abia, Edo, Akwaibom and Ondo have oil in 1 or 2 LGAs.
Imo's Oguta/Egbema area has been exporting oil for more than 40 years just like Abia's Asa/Ndoki. Google Owaza and Izombe.
|Politics / Re: Senate Rejects Bill To Recognise Anambra As Oil Producer by Abagworo(m): 2:48pm On Dec 17|
I dont blame you. I blame Abians who never see the bigger picture when in a bid to play politics sell a false bad image of their State. In reality and by statistics Aba is richer than Lagos based on per capita income. The pictures of bad roads is just an expression of frustration by sincere Abia citizenry and never a true reflection of the true state of Abia.

Work has resumed on the Owerri/Port Harcourt expressway. Even if its a campaign strategy, Jonathan requires commendation for the resumption of work after 2 years of neglect. Since the bad portion of tbe road is short, I expect it completed before elections.
Meanwhile here is the Obasanjo constructed Owerri/Onitsha road near NNPC mega station Owerri.

It all boils down to the principal issue of citizenship. Who is a Nigerian? Are Fulanis Nigerians or Senegalese? Are Igbos Nigerians or Israelites? How long will you live in any parr of Nigeria to be a citizen? Rather than all these tribalism most of you are campaigning why dont we focus on making Nigeria better?

I laughed when PDP brought out Ihedioha because he is an easy ride and his anticedents suggests the typical Mbaise stigma that can easily be used against him even within Owerri zone. A green Snake cannot rule Imo period. No man from Okigwe zone or Orlu zone or Owerri proper or Mbaitoli or even Ngor Okpala he has been marginalizing for 12 years will stand under the sun to vote Ihedioha.

Se.x hawking is part of signs of where the money is. Abuja, Lagos

On the other hand we know the state endangered with HIV.

The problem with you people is that you erroneously believe economic activities is only buying and selling or factory. Agriculture and tourism are also economic activities.
Before Okorocha Concorde hotel was running at a loss and supported with subsidy from State government but today it is independent and now has a competitor Rockview hotel which is so 5star by Nigerian standard. Concorde and Rockview which are 8 and 9 storey buildings are the biggest hotels of such highrise in the Southeast.
