Port Harcourt Rivers Named After Lord Lewis Vernon Harcourt by zoba88: 6:04pm On Feb 05
The man whom "Port-Harcourt" was named after, Lord Lewis Vernon Harcourt was a rapist and paedophile.

After being faced with public condemnation, Lewis Harcourt committed suicide at his London home on February 24, 1922.

My message to my Igbo brothers is that in the short run Buhari has to go. For those who are protesting for Biafra, you cannot go protest with hunger, or empty stomach ,let the man go first, leave Aso Rock, let someone who is reasonable enter Aso Rock, then we continue our dialogue on the Nigerian project. Boycotting the election like Kanu said will not help the igbos rather it helps Buhari to win the election remember Peter Obi is the second igboman to contest as Vice Presidential Candidate after Dr Alex Ekwueme let's support PDP just because of our Igbo Brother Peter Obi. I believe he will try his best if elected
Daluu kwa nu ooooooo!!Gullibility is now a norm. You don’t even need to use your brain. Why do you think some educated dummies are swarming all over the internet screaming Baba Oyoyo and four plus four, despite the crass failure of the Buhari’s administration and the cluelessness, now derangement of a president who should be recuperating in a hospital taking care of his health?

Don't believe any stories of ''there was no local name''. That's what they've used for many years to brainwash Africans that we had no names.

Everywhere they occupied they always renamed to what's important to them. Of course, since the natives were not considered as human being, so they concluded we couldn't possibly have had a name for our cities.

Lake Victoria, they renamed after their queen.

Zimbabwe was always Zimbabwe from ancient time but they renamed it South Rhodesia.

Lagos was called Eko?

Those cities and places remain in the slave names because we're yet to wake up. Any day we wake up, they would all go back to their original names.

Atleast they didn't name it igweocha. Lol.


Tradermoni is supervised by worldbank which the Swiss bank asked to supervise Abacha's looted funds released to Nigeria.

In fact, I have to hail the master plan of Osibanjo to come up with tradermoni because these looted money that the Swiss bank didn't want to be added to our federal revenue/reserve could be loaned out to petty traders such as fruit/vegetable sellers, mtn card sellers etc and then returned back into federal pockets. Sense won't kill Osinbajo.
