The Man Behind Buhari's "War Against Indicipline" Of 1983 by Esseite: 6:49am On Jul 05, 2020
Samson Emeka Omeruah (14 August 1943 in Zaria, Northern Nigeria – 4 December 2006) was an air commodore of the Nigerian Air Force, a former governor of Anambra State and a former three-time Minister for Information, Youth, Sport and Culture in Nigeria during the regimes of Buhari, Sani Abacha and Abdulsalam Abubakar.

He was once the chairman of Nigeria Football Association - Nigeria's top football governing body and still regarded as its most successful Chair. He was also the minister for Sports when the Nigerian Golden Eaglets took home the FIFA under 17 world championship cup. He returned to the position in 1994, in time to see the Green Eagles make their first World Cup and win the 1996 Olympic gold medal. He was one of the proponents of privatizing the game in Nigeria and removing control from state governments.

Apart from this, he championed the War Against Indiscipline (WAI) programme of the Buhari regime between January 1983 and August 1985. He was a committed Christian of the Methodist faith and earned a PhD from the University of Lagos in addition to degrees from Punjab University, India and Auburn University in the United States.

Samson Emeka Omeruah's is actually from Nnono Oboro in Ikwuano local government area of Abia state. His brother Lt Col Paul Omeruah was a former military administrator of Kogi state.

Omeruah had four children and the second of these is Chioma Omeruah a.k.a. Chigul who is a linguist and a comedian despite her fathers insistence that she took law as her career.

He died in London after a brief illness.

Are you sure, because igbos said Buhari is a bigot that hates igbos, I don't think he keep any Igbo close to him at anytime according to what they said

In addition, I thought igbos say Buhari never fought any war against indiscipline. So since one Emeka Omeruah is somehow linked to the programme, Buhari actually fought indiscipline again.

Honestly, I sometimes wonder if the igbos I see offline are the same ones online.

The difference in their IQ is too much. undecided

Just like difference between 10000000000 and 0.0001. undecided
