I wonder why its only the Yoruba states and its govs. that celebrated MKO and June 12, the winner of the only free and fair election in Nigeria yesterday.

Despite the outcry during celebration each year that June 12 be made the democracy but the FG and NASS keep turning deaf hears

Now, I am noticing the racism in our political system.

Because the other parts still do not understand the concepts of democracy which the Yoruba nation have been practising for over 500 yrs in one form or the other.the same reason why the southwest fought against Turai yar adua for turning GEJ into an houseboy in aso rock is the same reason why June 12 will remain a big thing for the southwest .
You just do not mess around with people's mandate .
If the military tries to overthrow the current universally hated government of GEJ or any other .you can always bank on the Yoruba nation to make a stand up against such a move .
There are just do many civically enlightened individual with a cosmopolitan and urban attitude (most people live in towns and cities)in the southwest to keep the vagabond on their toes.
That is why religion or sectional interest play less of a roll than in other parts

Bros, June 12 is another pointer to the ethnic divide in Nigeria.
If MKO was Igbo, the celebrations would had been in the South East.
If MKO was Hausa, the celebrations would had been in the North.

all the so called great Nigerians were no more than regional champions!
Awo was for the West what Zik was for the East and What Bello was for the North.

At the end, you don't really have a true "Nigerian".

Today, there is Tinubu of the South West, Buhari of the core North and Jonathan of the South South.
there can never be a great Nigerian that will be accepted by the North East,North west, North Central, South East, South West and South South.

June 12 is worth celebrating by all Nigerians, but don't be carried away by those who are beating their chest that the South West are the icons of democracy. When OBJ and the Uba's abducted a serving governor, the protests was only in Igboland, had it been in the West, you would had seen the south West on fire.

You fell on yourself and you also contradicted yourself so many times..


You still see everything in ethnic colors and designs, but GEJ wasn't not Yoruba when Yoruba people fought for him and demonstrated endlessly on his behalf to return to him his hijacked constitutional rights and privileges while the rest of the country, his own people and the entire SE and SS looked the other way and kept quiet as if their own rights and constitutional guarantees was not on the line.


Same way with the last NGF elections after the same anti democracy folks even from the winners region refused to respect the results from a common NGF elections and hijacked the process, but Fashola from the SW took the case to court as a matter of democratic principle and not because of ethnic affiliations.


The fact that you are either very tribal and you see everything ethnically doesn't mean the rest of us do.

I don't consider MKO a hero. In Nigeria is someone becomes a politician, he's automatically a hero to someone, and this time it's yorubas because of where he's from. The man isn't a hero. He was a part of the same corruption, and financier of the same coups that destroyed this nation. Fela spoke of this man on ITT and how he used corrupt dealings to sell away the nations future.

Winning an election doesn't make one a hero. More importantly the June 12th protests are what should be celebrated, not MKO himself.

and it's a lie that yorubas celebrate him. When they wanted to change Lagos State Uni to MKO the students protested and clearly stated that MKO wasn't a hero and shouldn't be treated as one. The SW governors are just loud, they'll do whatever it takes to be spoken about on the internet so their actions are an irrelevancy, but lets not start pretending the MKO is a hero or a champion of democracy just because he won an election, GEJ won an election too.

Re: MKO And June 12 Celebrated Only By Yorubas by dayokanu(m): 5:21pm On Jun 13, 2013
This is because Yorubas have always been in the forefront of fighting for democracy and justice.

When June 12 was annulled, The SW erupted in riots while other regions looked the other way

When Saro Wiwa was killed It was riots in the SW mainly while most other regions looked the other way.

When OBJ increased pump prices it was the SW who protested also while others just looked on.

When Pa Alfred Rewane was killed it was the SW who protested also

Same with when Jonathan increased pump prices

Look at those who fought the govt from Funmilayo Kuti, to Fela, to Gani, to Femi Falana to Tai Solarin to Wole Soyinka.

You see the pattern.

When the cabal denied Jonathan being the substantive President check those who led the SNG protest

In the age of sophisticated media and internet you dont need to be locally present to see and hear and know whats happening 2000miles away. An event that important to the national politics would have been reported, even from a passerby's cameraphone. Nothing happened in SE and SS!

Nigerian President Umaru Yar'Adua, who has been in hospital abroad for the past 44 days, has spoken on the phone to key officials, a minister says.

Information Minister Dora Akunyili says Mr Yar'Adua spoke to the vice-president on Tuesday.

Earlier, Foreign Minister Ojo Maduekwe told the BBC he believed Mr Yar'Adua - being treated for a heart condition - was recovering in a Saudi hospital.

Nigeria: Yar'Adua's Setting Bad Precedent, Says Ohaneze Scribe
By Christopher Isiguzo, 27 January 2010

interview

Lagos — Chief Nduka Eya is the Secretary General of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohaneze Ndigbo. In this interview with Christopher Isiguzo, Eya reviewed the state of the nation and blamed President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua for refusing to hand-over to his deputy, Goodluck Jonathan, to act as president in his absence. He also spoke on other issues, including the ongoing constitutional amendment process.

In your honest view, how would you rate the performance of the Yar'Adua administration?

Nigeria: Ohaneze Vows to Oppose Yar'adua
By Francis Ugwoke, 18 December 2006

Enugu — Apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohaneze Ndigbo, at the weekend, said it will not support any presidential candidate outside South-east or South-south, including the just nominated candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Umaru Yar' Adua.

Ohaneze's Tactical Committee Chairman, Professor Ben Obumselu, told newsmen weekend, after an emergency meeting of the group, that Ndigbo are insisting on either an Igbo man or a candidate from the South-south as a presidential candidate.

OHANEZE CHIEFTAIN URGES YAR’ADUA TO OBEY CONSTITUTION

Filed in News by Prince on February 3, 2010 • 0 Comments

Ohaneze chieftain urges Yar’Adua to obey constitution
From CHUKS ONUOHA, Umuahia
Wednesday, February 3, 2010

The Chairman of Ohaneze Ndi Igbo, Lagos State branch Chief Oliver Akubueze has said that President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua should do what is necessary to enable his deputy to take over the affairs of the state as the acting president considering his health, which has been deteriorating in the past few months.

Akubueze said further that since the constitution was clear on the matter, it would be if it was followed.
He described as bad situation where the president would not allow his deputy to assist him when he was not feeling well, adding that nobody wished him dead adding, that there were things the deputycould not do without the authority of the president. He said the 23 year old Nigerian, accused of intending to blow an airline on the Christmas Day as something the President would have called the American president and discussed with him.

Akubueze said that could have stopped America from listing Nigeria as a terror country, which had subjected Nigerians to embarrassment in the international community.
According to him, “there is what we call somebody operating from a vacuum. “This is how I see it. When there is an authority given to someone, quite different from when the person is doing something without being authorized.”
The Secretary General of Ohaneze had reacted to the issue of the absence of Mr. President and his ill health. He toed the line of others, advising that the president should hand over power to Jonathan in acting capacity.

He explained that there were different cultural organizations acting on different platforms and perspectives. “What Ohaneze may say might be different from view of Afenifere or Arewa. But what is important is for somebody to say the right thing without fear or favour. In this case the right thing to be done is to follow the constitution and to do things the way they should be done not minding the place the person comes from.”
On the recent earthquake in Haiti , the Ohanaeze Chieftain urged the federal and state governments to do something because if you trace the origin of the Haiti people they are Nigerians.

“Why did I say Haiti is Nigerians when you go to their burial ground you will see on their tombs this is where Mr. Okeke is buried; this is where Mr. Okafor is buried; this is where Mr. Nwachukwu is buried this is where Mr. Ajayi is buried, with inscription of dates of their death and burial.

That is why I said they are our brothers and we should support them. Many international organizations, NGOs and countries have been reacting by giving good donations. Let us increase the much we have given, Chief Akubueze said.
On the governorship election is taking place in Anambra State this week, the Ohaneze Chieftain advised all to see it as normal.
“ Leadership should not see politics a do-or-die affair. All the aspirants will not win; it is just one person that will win and occupy that position. Let them support whoever that wins the election there is no point dragging it to court and wasting money and time. Let INEC beef up security so that there will not be any rigging. Let the people vote and determine who will govern them. Let it not be a by-all-means affair,” he pleaded

Apart from Herbert Macaulay and to some extent ZIK of Africa, i don't know of any leader in Nigeria that is not sectional. That's why you'll rarely see all the regions celebrating a particular person with the same vigour. If Abiola was an Igbo man, he would have also been celeberated only in Igboland likewise if he was from other parts of the country. But the base line here is not even Abiola but the event itself. Now, the question is, was the event that much of a deal that it should be celebrated throughout the country?

Dora Akunyili asks Yar'Adua to step down

Dora Akunyili asks Yar'Adua to step down


There was confusion at the Federal Executive Meeting (FEC) yesterday, when the Minister of Information and Communications, Prof. Dora Akunyili, submitted a memo calling on the FEC to face up to the reality of President Umaru Yar'Adua's continued absence.

Akunyili in the 'step down memo' to the meeting urged her colleagues to advise the President to transmit a letter to the National Assembly to facilitate a smooth transition.

Daily Champion gathered that Akunyili in the memo which created a fiasco in the meeting had warned that FEC had taken Nigerians for granted for too long and should do the right thing by urging the President to step down. Predictably, the memo was shot down as it was not allowed to form part of the agenda.

A reliable source told Daily Champion that though most of his colleagues supported the memo, some powerful persons ensured that it was thrown into the dustbin. She was however congratulated by many of them for her courage and bravery in confronting the FEC.

Responding to inquiries from Daily Champion, Prof. Akunyili accepted writing the memo.

Meanwhile the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday foreclosed any handing over to Vice President Goodluck Jonathan, when the party told him to wait for God's directives on the clamour for Acting President being canvassed by opposition parties and human rights groups.

Abiola issue was a Yoruba thing. Aboila is a regionalist. Remember at one point he said that he can do without the Igbos, that statement definitely cost him the presidency and subsequently his life.

2. Her initial proclamations disgraceful utterances and behavior negates everything after that cos she lost public trust and relevance.

In the same clime you are talking about, they force their public officials to resign when they lie to the citizenry and betray public trust so her medicine after death nonsense we were subjected to happened because we don't do things like they do in that same clime as in she should have been booted from office a long time ago..
