Make una leave Nwakali to concentrate on his club football. He should forget about National team football for now. I will repeat it again. During international break the league he plays in has matches. You don’t expect the team paying his wages to lose him for international games. Dem go say na bad bele we get… make una free am to concentrate on his club career.

he should at worst be on the bench for International games he is available for...

If Nwakali had played against Ghana, the forwards would have been getting through balls from him and the forward players with pace will have more chances to score.. he would also attempt long range shots...

the national team has 5 players who give through passes and only 2 of those 5 are usually called up and play games.. the 5 players Ihenacho, Iwobi, Nwakali, Olayinka, Amoo... S.E needs players that play as a team not players that see themselves as the hero of the team...

Iwobi will. He's currently the most intelligent footballer in our team

Iwobi missed one on one against West Ham due to him holding onto the ball so you're not correct....

Iwobi won't shoot first time..

I'm not sure you understand. If not, why would you say I'm used to a lean midfield? Isn't Nwakali and Iwobi a lean Midfield?

BTW, playing Iwobi, nwakali, Ndidi and Onyedika as a Midfield 4? Well, it's not impossible.

You didn't mention any DM so I assumed your forward players will be Simon osimhen moffi chukwueze and your midfield will be nwakali and iwobi with no DM then aina omeruo ajayi bassey in defense. That's what I assumed.

Due to the people and coaches Currently managing Nigerian football it's impossible to have starting midfield four.

What’s the difference between their attack now and the set we faces 3 years ago.

3 years ago vini jr was a scam
3 years ago ndidi was god of DM
No raphinha
3 years ago richalison was feather weight
3 years ago Neymar was the focal point of the attack

Which Nigeria player except iwobi, has made significant improvements in the last 3 years to stand toe to toe against this Brazilian. Team

Remember they’re Fxcking ghana without lube, same Ghana we couldn’t breakdown their midfield.

We drew with Algeria team B
All of a sudden Brazil is beneath us

Oga wake up to reality that Nigeria will never pass round of 16 in the next 30 years in a world up.

Brazil's goals came from the wing and set pieces. Brazil is not playing through the midfield.

Once Brazil plays the ball to the midfield the midfield plays it to any of the wings then the wings either plays a cross or cuts inside and passes into box or midfield which this time would be at the semi circle just outside the box.

You can't have a Midfield duo of Iwobi and Nwakali especially against a top team like Algeria. Both of them are not so good defensively which means our midfield will be an expressway. Infact, Iwobi and Etebo played well because Sao Tome was a lesser team.

Your problem is you're used to the lean midfield Nigerian coaches use.

Nigeria should have a starting midfield four of iwobi nwakali Ndidi onyedika while bonke onyeka alhassan-yusuf etebo should be on the bench..

For Nigeria to be successful at least 7 midfielders should always be called up.

The English might have invented football,but the Brazilians really perfected it... The squad depth in that team is mad!


You're right. But Nigeria also has mad squad depth just that our local coaches and technical coaches don't have a playing pattern and don't prioritize team work and also don't prioritize crossing and set plays or set pieces.

Brazil's teamwork, set pieces and wing plays and quick football is what making them beat Ghana.

2 of Brazil's goals are from set pieces. The second goal was Richalison's first time shot, most Nigerian players won't shoot that one first time.

Mofo so Ojukwu was a British man. I am learning new things like this.

the bri:tish leave the people more devastated than they earlier met them. If not for the hardwork and peaceful nature of our ancestors in southern Nigeria, southern Nigerians will be in poverty because the bri:tish created Nigeria in a way where Northern and Southern Nigeria will engage in endless wars...

I intentionally did not mention the fu:lanis...

the N:igerian police force before it was created , was a group of rag-tag northern Nigerians ( history portrays them as H:ausas but in my opinion they were mostly f:ulanis ) formed by the bri:tish to carry out guerilla attacks on tribes that were fighting against the b:ritish by burning down villages, killing, raping e.t.c..

In summary,
the f:ulanis were trained by the br:itish to attack tribes in southern Nigeria who fighting against the british....

In full text,
southern Nigerians were always prepared to attack the Bri:tish if the Brit:ish attacked them. And southern Nigerians of that era empowered each other. When the Brit:ish left Nigeria there was no University in Nigeria.

before the br:itish left Nigeria, the Br:itish did not build one university, our number of primary and secondary schools were very low, br:itish did not build smooth roads all over Nigeria , no housing estates, no plans for clean water for communities, majority of the private companies where owned by the br:itish and they only gave Nigerians clerical work which is what the education system they gave us is meant to produce office assistants.

All the developments you see in Nigeria today from Abuja to lagos to calabar to Akwa-ibom to oyo to Enugu e.t.c are all built by Nigerians, our parents, our grand parents e.t.c the br:itish left Nigeria to rot. Everything you had and have the privilege of enjoying in Nigeria was and is through the hardwork of parents, grand parents, and other Nigerians.

british was the worst government ever... there were riots and killings of Igbos during their time...

British sponsored the Civil war in Nigeria, they burnt villages and cities in the Bini, Oyo to the ground and killed thousands of children, men and women...

Abeg sit down and read your history before speaking.
America was a nation of British want aways, persecuted folks who would not bow to the crown on account of religion. That is its origins.
Australia on the other hand was dumping ground for British castaways, those who will not conform to society where sent there to eternal exile.
See what both nations have become today, friends and allies with their former tormentors.
It is not only blacks that have suffered in this world. All humanity has been inhuman to man.

Most blacks think history started in 1887 and that it is only Africa that was plundered and her people enslaved.
What you're saying is not different from what I'm saying.

U.S.A and Australia and New zealand are ethnically British.

Africa was plundered and still continued to be plundered after independence by the same colonialists.

Why didn't the British or France advise Azikwe and Ojukwu to create an Eastern Nigeria Petroleum company or Igbo petroleum company instead of advising and encouraging war.... Because they ( British and France ) wanted their own oil companies to get the oil blocks in Nigeria and despite Azikwe and Ojukwu been educated they weren't intelligent enough to know this..

The other countries you see are doing well because the U.S.A and Britain transferred their manufacturing to those countries which allowed those countries to acquire knowledge to build their own version of those things.

While the major thing they give to African countries is aid not knowledge transfer.

Reference:
America fought a brutal war with Britain between 1775 and 1783 that secured her independence and ended the First British Empire.
Since then America has developed itself to the point that today their President is given special privileges.

Much of Africa meanwhile negotiated its independence in and around the 1960's and ended the second British Empire in the process but has seen a steady decline ever since till the point they have assumed the position of third world nations whose leaders ride the bus.

Instead of introspection, her citizens are still punching at shadows.
In a world where everyone was practically conquered by the British at one time or the other from Asia to the Americas, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, in a world that is all but english speaking, with english customs and traditions dominating, it is only Africa that still cannot surmount this fact of history. Every other continent has moved on and are all bigger and better than the British today except Africa.

The endless whining and groaning and sighing is the clear sign where the problem is.... in the African head, the African mentality that has lent itself to excuses for failure and the inability to take responsibility for becoming great in itself.

I have said it time and again.
Britain did not become Great by excuses. They were overrun by the famous Roman General and Emperor Julius Caesar. Before then the Kelts, Vikings, even the French all at one time in antiquity conquered Britain and enslaved its people. They too fought to become what they are today. I do not see any Briton today hate on these people, the sons and daughters of their former foes for things done in generations past.

WHEN WILL AFRICA LET GO AND BEGIN TO RE CREATE ITSELF TO BECOME GREAT.
Every day of excuses will never move us forward as a national continent of blacks. FACT.

America didn't fight with Britain...

It was Britain vs Britain.. just that one decided to call itself America while the other maintained their identity...

Britain and U.S.A are one..

When Africa was doing well in the Egyptian Pharoah times, they attacked and destroyed Egypt.. then they demonized Egypt and its pharoahs and its totem ( the snake ) in their religious books..

You were shown an official government document that proves that it was Gowon that abolished Regionalism

But you are bringing online comments as your of proof? You guys are laughable

another comment below.

femisplash:
The British authorities feared Awolowo's intellectualism and sagacity that they conspired and he was rigged out. Here was a man that was a century ahead of his peers. Don't take my word for it, visit your history- The NTA you have on your TV screen today was formerly the WNTV, the first in Africa. Under Awolowo, the King of Saudi Arabia came all the way down to Nigeria for medicals in the old University teaching hospital, Ibadan. Free medical care for all, free and compulsory Education, including scholarships for students abroad (UK) funded by the Western Government. Agriculture was the major revenue earner with commodity boards directly buying off agricultural produce from Farmers profitably and selling to consumers at reasonably prices.
Wait for this, Awolowo was the first to establish an Embassy in the UK aimed at promoting diplomatic relations between the UK Govt and the Govt of Western Nigeria but unfortunately, ALL of these gains and more were eroded when a section of the country led by Aguiyi Ironsi destroyed regionalism and replaced it with Unitary System of Government through Section 34 of Unification Decree. Now, SW has become" be as I be" but we muuve!, God pass dem.
At the time the British were leaving us, they gave to each section of the country her own regional autonomy while handing the affairs of the central government to the duo of Hausa/Fulani and Ibo as Prime Minister and Governor-General respectively. However, unfortunately, three years into our budding republic, some greedy folks from a section of the country, in their wiles and clannish egoistical attempts at dominating the rest of the country- According to Azikiwe who had said in 1947 that " it seems as though the God of Africa had created the ibos to dominate and lead the African Continent", hatched the very first and bloodiest coup ever known on Nigerian soil whereby both Military and democratic leaders of Western, Midwest and Northern were gruesomely murderer leaving "their own" to spare.
Bashir Elrufai has every rights to bask and be boastful not because the North were greedy with power but because ibos introduced a needless coup and would later collapse a functioning regional system and above all kicked against secession clause into the 1959 constitution, which allowed the North took advantage of the lapses created, thus entrenching their grip on power. Power is sweet, they tasted it and loved it. I could remember that the North were contented with the progress of the regional Government with cotton, hides and skin providing the major source of revenue. Until Azikiwe and his Ibo comrades threw Awolowo under the bus to align with the North.
The likes of Prof. Uju Anya is only paying for the sins and the carelessness of her ancestors, ( especially the stupidity of Ojukwu during the war) so, she should kindly STFU and take a back seat.
Your forefathers were already regretting making you a 4th class citizen at the gate of their graves.

Then you better read Decree 34 well because there is nothing in it taking resource control away from the Regions. Ironsi kept all 4 Regions he met with full resource control and their revenue

It was Gowon that came in and promulgated Decree 14 which abolished all 4 Regions, created 12 states to replace them, and scrapped resource control

Gowons Decree 14 can be found on the internet but the first page is below, read it and cure your ignorance

read your fellow igbo supremacist comment below accepting Ironsi's culpability maybe you'll understand his explanation the problem with his explanation that I have is that he says it was by mistake and it wasn't by mistake...

the funny thing is that you commented before him on the thread I took his comment from..

CSTRR:

True.
The British tried very hard to put the North on top.

But those guys were too dumb to actually grab it.

It was ironsi with his unitary policy that ensured that the economic disparity between the North and the South that promoted southern superiority was dissipated on the altar of one unitary country.

And once the economic advantage moved from regions to federal control, it created an equilibrium that empowered the populous north.

It was an Igbo man that ironically created Northern dominance by mistake.

Its not possible for Ironsi to have abolished Regionalism, all 4 Regions were still existing the day Ironsi died, with full resource control

The person who abolished Regionalism was Gowon, who came after Uronsi died, and used decree 14 to abolish all 4 Regions, created 12 new stated and scrapped resource control

Ironsi created the unification Decree 34 of 1966 and created a SINGLE civil service for the whole country..

regionalism is about each region keeping its revenue and been able to make decisions to develop their infrastructure without interference from the FG......

the unification decree meant that each region no longer keeps its revenue and now needs permission from FG before they can develop their infrastructure and that only the FG can hire people into each regions public institutions.

creation of states doesn't remove the laws and guidelines that make regionalism...

If states in Nigeria start receiving 90% - 97% of their revenue from the federal institutions in their states then that means we are practicing regionalism...

Ironsi was in the west and ojukwu was in the east. They can’t take orders from nzeogwu because he was a junior officer to them. Everybody that orchestrated that coup were either majors or lieutenants! This is basic military hierarchy.

its not about who is junior or senior, its about carrying out successful coup ( tribal war ) and controlling the revenue and resources of the other tribes...

In summary, it was no longer a military and political war... It was a tribal war..

A tribal war to violently and forcefully take control of the revenue and resources of the other tribes.

what food did the families of Ojukwu, Ironsi, Azikwe and Nzeogwu eat while other igbos were starving to death

If the Ojukwu, Ironsi and Nzeogwu war was successful it means millions of southern tribes would have killed and this would have led to retaliation by these tribes and the killing of Ojukwu, Ironsi and Nzeogwu which would have also led to another more bloody war on Igbos all over Nigeria and southern Nigeria and it will be a lot more than 3 million igbos killed...

Grandmeister:

Your opinion is yours and you are very well entitled to them. Back then Nigeria was still in the full grips of the British government. America wouldn’t have done zilch if the British didn’t sanction it then. Gowon and ojukwu were less than 33 years old when that war started, gowon wasn’t even married then, most of the top military guys were either newly married or single at that age so it is understandable, the ego and lack of diplomacy they possessed for men their age. Nobody is excusing them but that war could have been averted if the British government stayed out of it. An agreement was reached at Aburi for goodness sake! Only to be thwarted by the behest of the British government.

the Aburi accord happened after the killing of leaders from other regions by Ojukwu, Ironsi, Nzeogwu and his gang and Gowon is from a minority tribe in the north while the leaders the Igbos killed were from majority tribes so it was out of Gowon's hands or the major tribes would have killed him and put their own people and the war would have still happened without Gowon...

The war could have been averted if the Igbos did try to colonize Nigeria by killing other tribes and seizing their lands and removing regionalism..

You might want to revisit your Nigerian history. The killing of Igbos started as far back 1945 when they were massacred in Jos, and in 1953 when they were massacred in Kano. But the only coup you Nigerians remember is the first coup that was tagged "Igbo coup". Other coups that claimed far more lives dont bother you people





The Regional government where every Region controlled their resources and paid the government at the centre was removed by Gowon. It was Gowon that used Decree 14 to abolish all 4 Regions of the time, replaced them with 12 states, and scrapped resource control. No military government writes constitution, they rule by decree




It was the Biafra/Nigeria war, Ojukwu was entitled to invade Benin, Ore or anywhere in Nigeria same as Nigeria invaded Enugu and Onitsha

If anyone was killed in Benin, their relatives are free to do what Uju Anya did on Tweeter, she is not stopping them.





Ojukwu never declared any war, Gowon was the one who declared war and sent Soldiers to the East. Ojukwu only wanted to go his way with his people. At least Ojukwu fought for the freedom of his people before running away. You people cant fight for even 3 minutes to even talk about getting to the stage of running away



You should be thanking them for calling Nigeria a zoo. Nigeria is poverty capital of the world and second most terrorised country on earth, much worse than a zoo


"The killing of Igbos started as far back 1945", why did Nnamdi Azikwe reject Secession Clause since he already live through this "killing of Igbos" events

It was Ironsi that removed regional government..

for you and people like you, you prefer the killing of millions of Binis, Yorubas and other tribes in Nigeria than to say and accept that Ojukwu and Azikwe were wrong to start a war...

mind you, the relatives of the people killed have already taken their revenge between 1966 - 1970 by killing millions of i:gbos, they don't need to rant on t:witter...

If Ojukwu "only wanted to go his way with his people" then he won't be attacking other tribes in the south and seizing their indigenous lands, attacking other tribes and seizing their land is declaration of war... H:erdmens are doing similar which has led to tribal vigilantes, who are rising up and fighting back and killing them..

quickly:


that woman is a fool

that civil war started with the killing of all the northern leaders including the then prime minister and sadauna of sokoto. who was like the regional governor in a time of 3 regions. also other top northern soldiers.

What is funny is that azikiwe was president and senate president was a man called nwafor. Head of miltary too was Nzeogwu.

If Uju were in the UK, there is a possibility that a nationalist would have assassinated her. You encourage people to keep talking anyhow. At least you cannot do the same to Islam in public.
On the Benin invasion, the Bini kingdom was already weak in the late 19th century. Ovonramwen killed tens on British soldiers. On expecting war with the British, many innocent indigenes were sacrificed to appease the gods to favour him in the war. Then the British came with a force and showed him the Art of War and looted. To the victor, all the spoils. That was the story. There was a provocation.
You should be lucky that it is the British empire in power. If Hitler had succeeded, a rebellious tribe would have been exterminated. If you have a problem with colonization, then your people instead of fighting stupid battles, looting resources and being corrupt should create a formidable military. From Day 1, Earth has been about conquest. We speak English because our ancestors were weak.

We speak English because the leaders allow it not because ancestors were weak if ancestors were weak we would have been colonized since the 1500s.

If English is not used then people will have to learn the language of the region they are in which should be the norm but because of " one Nigeria" its not the norm.

If you like try by using your last line where you said that you don't have any hatred for Igbos and that you still support Peter Obi to water down the enormous hatred you have against Igbos the fact is Igbos have seen you people's hatred against them finish and they don't give a f*ck...............I am that Igbojew the table shaker

Laugh over your foolishness.
Aburi Accord in Ghana would have averted the Nigerian civil war.
But Nigeria reneged after signing the accord. Nigeria started the war against Biafra.
Arewa leaders were about declaring Arewa Republic when the colonial masters advised them to stick to one Nigeria, including the resource rich Biafra area.
Uju Anya recounts how her pregnant mum carrying two other children was running as refugee from one town to the next, each time Nigeria's soldiers arrived.

But after the war, Nigeria's Finance Minister ordered that any Biafran who could find documents to prove that he/she had account with Nigeria's bank before the civil war, should be paid a paltry sum of £20.
The Finance minister knew that only a few of the refugees running from one town to the other, would be able to still have any proof of having account in a Nigerian bank before the civil war.

Till today, Nigeria has waged economic and political war against the Igbo.
The British had a referendum over membership of EU. Why does Nigeria fear referendum on who wants to be a Nigerian?

Are our Igbo brothers aware that this war was completely needless & avoidable had Nnamdi Azikwe through his Eastern Nigeria party NCNC not thwarted d much fought & debated 'right to secession clause' championed by Awolowo's The Action Group. This was to be part of d Constitution then. Azikwe formed an alliance with d North through the Northern party, the Northern People's Congress this clause never saw d light of d day. In d end, who suffered? There's Karma. The Igbos inadvertently played themselves.

Apologize to you for a war you started? Ojukwu should be the one to apologize for foolishly leading your blind fathers into a war they were never going to win.
What were they thinking when they killed one of the brightest minds the northern Nigeria had ever produced, sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Ahmadu Bello, Chief Samuel Ladoke Akintola and 19 others while sparing their own people in power at the time?
They even installed an Igbo man to be the head of government yet these set of vile people keep playing the victim cards on us.
The Igbo race owes the Southwesterners, the South-south people as well the Northerners an apology for killing their sons and revered leaders in the event that marked the first ever bloodshed disguised to be a political struggle. You can’t keep claiming to be victims when indeed, you started the madness but got yourselves whipped and tamed and reduced to dots in a circle ever since. Pls swallow your L in peace and move on. Nigerians too deserve a profound apology from you pigs.

Biafra declared war on Nigeria? Some of you Nigerians especially from the west are very demonic! Even the northerners who benefited more from the aftermath of the war are not this crass and foolish.
