HOW AWOLOWO HELPED IN CELEBRATING MEDIOCRITY PER EXCELLENCE by Nobody: 1:48pm On Jul 27, 2016
HOW FRUSTRATION SETS IN WHEN NORTHERNERS BETRAY YOU

Many years after he suddenly was reported dead of natural cause and few years after his golden jubilee, facts are now emerging on the reasons that led to First and Second Republic political heavyweight, Late Chief Obafemi Awolowo committing suicide.
It was learned that he did it to stem the tide of a possible military court martial into an insurrection he was planning to lead alongside his political associates at the time when it became evident that then Military President, General Ibrahim Babangida was intending staying in power forever.
CONFESSIONS FROM AWO's ASSOCIATE:-
In a no-hold barred interview with FS Online recently,a grass root politician ,Mr Adebayo Adeyinka who lives within the College Road at Ifako-Ijaiye axis in Ogba ,a suburb of Lagos, Nigeria was livid with rage when he learned that a key politician connected to the issue was denying the incident.
He revealed that Chief Awolowo wanted to lead some kind of guerilla warfare or militant campaign against the government of President Babangida so that he can be overthrown through a popular or people -led putsch.
According to him , the Elder Statesman summoned a meeting of his core loyalists over the issue and this was even filmed so as to strengthen the extent of commitment of each of the politician that attended the meeting,
He pointed out that however unknown to all of those who were privy to this meeting and clarion call , Chief Lateef Kayode Jakande ,Former Executive Governor of Lagos State had a different plan as he betrayed them to the military.
THE BETRAYAL OF Awolowo WHO BETRAYED BIAFRANS BY Lateef Jakande.
He Said:’ But unknown to them , Chief Jakande was planning to betray them, he went to President Ibrahim Babangida and promptly showed him the tape
“Papa Awolowo was invited for a meeting with President Ibrahim Babangida who was then staying at Dodan Barracks which was the seat of power as at then and the truth of his clandestine meetings was revealed to him by the gap –toothed
IBB’s OPTIONs TO AWOLOWO AND HE CHOOSING THE N20 RAT POISON SHAMEFUL OPTION:-
“He gave Papa some options and that was for him to be ready to face a court martial , be ready to go to a prison or better still go on exile
“At this stage Papa felt instead of allowing some ambitious khaki boy to mess him up he should just pack it in and call it a day ,so Chief Awolowo decide to commit suicide so as to save himself from the ignominy of going to prison for the second time in his lifetime.



EXPOSING HOW MUCH THIEF AWOLOWO STOLE FROM NIGERIA
(1) He was stupendously wealthy during his lifetime, infact there is NO company at Oba Akran in Ikeja ,Lagos where he does not have at least a five percent equity, Dideolu Court in Ogba alone cannot be valued at less than N10 Billion ,that was the place that he had in mind to be his Seat of power if he was elected as Nigeria’s President.
(2) He owned Shonibare Estate but the man he was using as a front and who later went to prison over some issues which Awolowo himself was privy to eventually laid claim to the estate.
“He got all of this wealth due to a great measure of goodwill and tax waivers he gave to investors whenever they come to establish their business.
(3) Anytime you buy a bottle of Coca-Cola you are enriching the Awolowo Dynasty,
(4) Go to Ijebu Ikenne and you will discover that the price of bag cement there is different from other parts of the nation due to the subsidy that the citizens enjoy on account of Awolowo who was their son and I hope you know that West African Portland Cement is in Ewekoro and not Ikenne.

Cowardice

Re: HOW AWOLOWO HELPED IN CELEBRATING MEDIOCRITY PER EXCELLENCE by johnwizey: 3:12pm On Jul 27, 2016
If you called dieing for what you believed in cowardice, i wonder what you will call someone that used 3m of his people as burnt offering and still ran to a neighbouring country disguised as a lady. He couldn't die for what he believed in, though he later died senile.

Actually its the brother(yeebos)that was used and massacred by other brother(north),that should intrigue any Nigerian.
During a national conference prior to independence in 1954, yeebos opposed a call to include the right of secession – a stance which was later exploited by the North and the West to deny the East the right to secede in the Nigerian Civil War.
the Hausa took control of the federal parliament, and formed a coalition government with the yeebos to subjugate the Yorubas due to their influence which the yeebos are extremely envious of,they denied Yorubas employment in the federal civil service, plotted to cause chaos in the western region,divided the region into two to reduce the influence of the Yorubas, something the yeebos didn't allow in their region when adaka boro led his ijaws brothers to declare Niger Delta republic.
the loving relation later came back to bite them when their(Yeebos) greed led them to kill the sarduana an esteemed northern leader in the famous IBO coup,the northerners quickly got together with the middle beltans to massacre yeebos in well planed pogrom,that later led to millions of death of Yeebos in a poorly planned war.
I will also like to add that ojukwu the brave commando took to his heels after a resounding defeat in the hand of Nigerian army led by Yoruba men.
the old coward later came back crawling on all four, to beg his northern brothers to contest for a position under the aegis of Hausa party,his yeebo brother he led to untold hardship knowing the coward he his quickly removed their hand off him,he later died a senile old Nigeria,but before his death it was said that frmi fani kayode was always willing to help his wife on their matrimonial bed.
that how a brotherly love story turned sour.

This piece was prompted by what I saw as benign ignorance amongst some of our Nigeria folks and because such ignorance is music to the ears of some other people and Yoruba in particular. In more than one occasion, my friends and other Nigerians have advanced the argument that if Igbo was that smart, how come Yorubas dominated the commerce industry in Nigeria? What they meant were the domination of Yoruba in the banking, insurance industries, Coco Cola and some other surviving industries. In one particular occasion a friend revealed to me that he recently discovered that the reason why some Yoruba are so wealthy is because they were smart enough to invest their money in corporate stocks and bonds (not realizing that Yoruba actually stole those corporations) while Igbo was busy engaging in buying and selling. The Yoruba will like people to continue to believe that story, that it was because they were smart that they were able to do all these great investments in the commerce industry. 
One relevant question that I always managed to ask my interlocutors is whether they were aware of the indigenization decree of 1972, master minded by Awolowo and the Yoruba and the ramifications of that policy. As will be expected, the answer ranged from, I have heard of it but does not understand what it actually meant to I have not heard of the policy.What is disconcerting is that some in their benign induced ignorance believe that the effect of indigenization is inconsequential at this time because it happened about forty years ago. This piece is therefore for those that are educable and for those that have the capacity to appreciate the magnitude and most importantly for those that can relate that gigantic economic event that reshaped the economic foundation on which Nigerian economy settled on after the British/Biafran war and as well as relate our present economic malaise to that economic foundation engendered by indigenization.

There is no doubt that most people, particularly those that do not have either basic or international economics background are overwhelmed by the subject of INDIGENIZATION OF FOREIGN COMPANIES IN NIGERIA because of their inability to understand the economics of it to make the necessary connections and relate it to the present economic doldrums, some simply brush it aside or worse, simple minimize its far reaching implications particularly on the Igbo.The unspeakable effect of the policy of indigenization on the Nigerians was wicked and dastardly.

Some folks will argue that we should drop the subject because it happened forty years ago, which is equivalent to saying that because slavery, Jim Crow and the holocaust happened years ago, and for that reason, they have no relevance in today’s analysis. How can any credible analysis of American history not include slavery and its implications, or how can any Jewish history not include the Holocaust and its implications and effects, but that is what some folks want us to do, to avoid or forget one of the most devastating economic policies that changed the economic landmark of Nigeria, second to the genocide of more than three million Igbo committed by the same man, Awo, and still arrive at any meaningful analysis. I believe that the incredulity that any ethnic group is capable of visiting such devastation on another is still an obstacle that the subject is struggling against and must overcome. It is not that most people do not know what happened, it is simply that they do not want to believe that it happened because it is mind-bending. I also believe that if we do not tell the story over and over, the Yorubas will not tell and neither will the Hausa tell it, as a matter of fact they always wish that it will go away. So whether they like it or not, we must continue to broadcast what happened until people start to understand the effect of the policy not only on the Igbo but on the nation as a whole. Suffice to say that after Awo and the Yoruba succeeded in executing the indigenization decree and became overnight millionaires, many Igbo packed their bags and left Lagos to the East

It's instructive to note that after signing up to be a slave to Ahmadu bello and Tafawa Balewa, all Azikiwe got for you were pogroms after pogroms in the north culminating into the civil war and the sacrifice of 3 million of your ancestors to the gods of chest beating.

curiously, that didn't stop you from signing up to slavery again to Shagari through Alex Ekwueme and of course continued pogroms against you guys in subsequent years.

Again being used as stepping stone by GEJ didn't stop him from violently clamping down on your biabia agitations with 50 dunces wasted and dumped in Ezzu river in 2014.

Your hate for Yoruba will continually push you into servitude to both majority and minorities who will readily use and discard you as they deem fit

WHAT ENGENDERED THE INDIGENIZATION POLICY?

It is no more news worthy to point out that before the civil war that Igbo out of their capacity for honesty, to work hard, to produce, to innovate, to manage, create and persevere were able to penetrate all facets of Nigerian endeavor, when the British used merit as a yard stick. It is an irrefragable fact that even Yoruba would not dare challenge that fact, if not, what started the Yoruba hate, envy and jealousy against the Ibo in the first place, Yoruba and Hausa claimed that Ibo was dominating everything in the country but what they will not acknowledge publicly was the fact that the British were making the decisions about who to hire by their own standard and not by Igbo standard and that Igbo was good at what they did and better than them. The Yoruba and Hausa wanted not only equal opportunity they also wanted equal outcome regardless of effort and everyone knows that that is impossible.
There is one very important fact in my analysis that I want everyone to get, and that is that before the civil war, Nigeria as a nation did not have an economy of its own. Let me say it again, that Nigeria as a nation before the British/Biafran civil war did not have an economy of its own. I emphasized that point in other to say that whatever seemed like Nigerian economy were British owned. Put differently, if you excluded few of the regional cooperatives and some joint ventures businesses which were mostly British engineered to make buying raw materials easy for the British, every other aspect of the economy were owned majorly by the British, even the military, given the fact that almost every military supply came from Britain. It is then safe to say that British investment in Nigeria amounted to a great totality of Nigerian economy or that Nigerian economy was at that time synonymous to the total investment of the British.
Below, courtesy of Africa Today are the list of some of the companies that constituted Nigerian economy before the war that the Yoruba stole in one swoop, spanning the insurance companies like Lloyd’s of London and all the banks in Nigeria owned one way or the other by the British.
The upcoming writings is but a partial list of what constituted the British investment in Nigerian economy.

The necessity of inserting this partial list of the companies/assets that existed before the war was to give the reader a sense of the extent of what the issue is all about and who owned what and when. The Yoruba hardly owned much of anything or any of these assets listed above except in some regional joint cooperative ventures with the British.

These were the assets controlled and owned by the british

The story went like this, before the war the Igbo dominated the economic work force followed by the Yoruba, when British/Biafran war started, Igbo, for their safety left their jobs in different parts of the country to return to the East, the Igbo land. After the end of the war, the Igbo went back to seek for their jobs that they left for security reasons, the Yoruba who took advantage and occupied the positions that Igbo left decided that they will not relinquish those position because according to the Yoruba, Igbo abandoned their positions and do not deserve their position back, reminiscent of the abandon property thievery in Port Harcourt River State and Lagos. However, a dynamic developed as Igbo every morning dressed up and went and occupied the lobbies of their different offices that they used to work in. Tell me, if this is not manifest bravery of the highest order ever exhibited by any group in Nigeria and we are talking about days and weeks immediately after the war was declared over. But the final say as to whether or not the positions that Ibo left for dire life was going to be declared abandoned rested on the British that owned these companies. As the back and forth went on, the British started angling to make an economic decision because they understood the difference between the Ibo worker and the Yoruba worker and the three years of the civil war made that difference even more crystal clear to the British, if not, why would the British bother to accommodate the Igbo after such a long time? What became clear to the Yoruba was that the British were willing to make extra provision to re-absorb the Igbo any way possible.

In order to prevent the British from re-absorbing the Igbo into these British owned companies, the corporate Yoruba decided to solicit the help of Awolowo who was then the finance minister and chairman of the federal military council.
This is where a plan was hashed to wrest the control of these companies, consisting of banks, insurance companies, corporations of different kinds and types from the British. The best way Awo and his cabal found fit was to convince Gowon and the military leadership who in all probability have never had the word indigenization in their lives to promulgate the INDIGENIZATION DECREE in 1972 that stipulated that every foreign owned venture must transfer majority ownership to Nigerian indigenes within a year of the promulgation of the decree or they will forfeit the assets to the Nigeria Government. What was worse was that the British did not even have enough time to evaluate the worth of their ventures because of the limited time the decree allowed, courtesy of Awo and cabal. The situation gave chaos a new name because the British were in chaos. So the first problem the British ran into was limited time that they couldn’t figure what the value of majority of their ventures were, they could not tell how much to sell them for. Mind you that this was happening within a year after the end of the civil war. At this time the Yoruba was running every conceivable federal ministries, departments and agencies plus all the corporations listed above and more that the British owned. It is important to point out that the North had little or no presence in the commerce economy of the country before the war and after the war except in the military leadership and infantry. The economy of the country was dominated by Igbo first and Yoruba second before the war. In order to solidify the economic dominance that the Yoruba attained during and after the war and to make their position even more potent in acquiring the British spoils, Awo as the finance minister and chairman of the federal military council and his Yoruba cabal decided to economically emasculate the Igbo

understanding

a) That Yoruba was fully running every conceivable federal parastatal
b) That Yoruba was running every conceivable corporation that the British owned or had majority ownership as listed above.
c) That Yoruba was managing all the Nigerian banks, insurance corporations, National shipping line, Nigerian airways, Nigerian’s Ports authority, Nigerian Railways and all the ministries, Departments and Agencies conceivable.
Decided to destroy whatever was left of the Igbo and putting a finishing touch to it by
a) Stealing through confiscating all the millions of pounds that Igbo had in all the Nigerian banks
b) Offering every Igbo person £20 pounds regardless of how many millions they had in the Nigerian banks before the war.
 c) Militarizing every part of Igbo land.
d) Rendering every Igbo without exception a pauper.
e) Banning every importation of stock fish and used clothes to deprive the Igbo of any economic ability to compete with the Yoruba in buying into the British assets.

When that day of infamy arrived for the British to start selling their assets, Igbo having been disenfranchised and emasculated in any and every way stood on the sideline watching the Yoruba in their glee as they scrambled to obtain loans from their Yoruba dominated banks to make the most minimal of offers to the British as there were no competitions. The British had no choice but to accept any offer as the alternative was losing everything to the federal government. The British lost pretty much all their investment to the Yoruba whose stock in trade is robbing and stealing any and everything they can get their hands on. Thousands of Yoruba became millionaires overnight and there was jubilation and owanbe all over Yoruba land. Yoruba had parties day and night and weekends. They closed streets to display their new found wealth as they partied. That day marked the economic death of Nigeria, that day marked the death of Nigerian’s aspiration to join the civilized world.
ON THAT DAY,MEDIOCRITY PER EXCELLENCE WAS OFFICIALLY SIGNED, SEALED AND DELIVERED TO NIGERIA.

It is important to note that by this singular act of INDIGENIZATION DECREE engineered by the Yoruba, the Yoruba de facto constituted the new economic foundation, the sole owner and manager of Nigerian economy without any rivals.
For the ignorants, all things being equal (in a fair fight) the Yoruba knew it, the British knew it, the Igbo knew it and the world knew it that the Yoruba did not possess the capacity, creativity, drive, perseverance, hard work and the competence to do what some are crediting to it if they did not conspire to steal not only from the British and Igbo but from everybody else that had any assets in Nigeria.
I believe that the question that the benign ignorant should be asking going forward is what did Yoruba do with all these assets and corporations that they stole. How did the country fair under the Yoruba management of the Nigerian economy? How did the Yoruba managed economy relate to today’s economic malaise? Hope they can make the connections.

HONEST OPINIONS ARE WELCOMED.

Nigeria is once a peaceful state,
the three major tribes lives in peace and harmony back then.

But unfurnately major Nzeweago Kaduna and his Igbo's tribes men decided to break the bond by betraying the north.

he is an ingrate and ungrateful son of a bitch!

The north and some yoruba people trusted him, he even has a northern state name as his second name, because he was born and grew up there.

but what did he do in return?

he carried out a bloody coup to our freedom fighters.

unfurnately for him he didnt knew that northerners are always together and they are ready to push out any intruder amidst them that will brought a threat upon them.

Ojukwu also attempt to retaliate in other to avenge for his brothers but he also failed

They can't withstand the pressure from the two strongest regions in Nigeria (the NORTH AND SOUTHWEST)

I have never heard an Igbo politicians or top military personels or top business men and some petty traders that are doing well and living outside the red mud republic aggitate for biafra.
why do they always keep mute?
