|Politics / Re: Has Buhari Succeeded In Uniting Nigerians Or Dividing The Country? by naijaking1: 2:31am On Dec 11, 2019|
'Uniting Nigeria' and the word Buhari can't be used in the same sentence!

Inability to pass any standardized exam is the only qualification required for serving in Buhari government.
I wonder why

Orji Kalu maybe Igbo, but he was never an Igbo governor serving Igbo interests. He was serving the interest of the powers that placed him in office. As the chicken comes homes to roost, Igbo vagabonds like Okorocha needs to be ready for his own!

Hear Ojukwu's word. Like him or hate him, just think about facts of the matter for now.
Awolowo's book never really answered the question about who directly released him.
|Politics / Re: RE: A More ABSOLUTELY Convincing Evidence To Show Gowon Released Chief Awolowo by naijaking1: 8:16pm On Dec 01, 2019|
Video was captioned: Releasing Awolowo from prison. Do you doubt it too?
If it had said receiving Awolowo who had just been released, it would be case closed, but for some odd reasons, Gowon and the promoters of this forgery wants to show the World how he released Awo from prison.
BTW, I like the prison uniform, the small room, and the environment. Good imaginary.
|Politics / Re: RE: A More ABSOLUTELY Convincing Evidence To Show Gowon Released Chief Awolowo by naijaking1: 8:10pm On Dec 01, 2019|
Nice video! Well orchestrated indeed. But, what prison is Gowon "releasing" Awo from? It's certainly not Calabar prison.
|Politics / Re: RE: A More ABSOLUTELY Convincing Evidence To Show Gowon Released Chief Awolowo by naijaking1: 8:04pm On Dec 01, 2019|
See Video of Gowon Releasing Awolowo From Prison in 1966

My brother, trust me, I am not here to frustrate your life. I believe that you have been educated rather wrongly about the sequence of events, because I wondered why the release of Awo should be such a big deal. It's one of those historical events that are now fading until you began a series publications to rather distort history in real time. No matter the amount of press assembled by Gowon, no matter the background he staged as a publicity stunt, the real questions are begging for answers.
Some earlier propaganders of falsehood had postulated several times that Gowon released Awo from Ikoyi prison, because they forgot some people still remember that Awo was actually held in Calabar prison. And like yourself, when challenged they always do the 3 things they teach in law schools about arguments: 1. Hit the facts. 2. Hit your opponent. 3. If 1& 2 fail, just hit the table!
Your example about Buhari ordering release of Dasuki is not a good example, but I am beginning to concede that maybe you didn't even know about the reason for the civil war in the first place. Once again, and despite all you have been told, Gowon had no capacity, no domain, no muscle, no power, no zip to do anything in the rebel Biafra, not rule, not command any army, police, airforce, or prison services to do any of his commands. He was not recognized as their ruler by the Biafrans for 3 years!!! Anybody coming to any major eastern city like Calabar with a directive from Gowon could have been killed instantly!
Again, Ojukwu released Awo, and he first went home to Ikenne, and from there Gowon came into the scene.

Not sure that you slept well, because your points are now even more convoluted as ever. No regrets having a logical argument anytime, but if you prefer, then go to your tribal parapo with the likes of T9sky or whatever, and feed off of each others ignorance and hatred.
However, once you come here to push a an absurd theory that doesn't hold water, then someone, hopefully will shoot you down.
If Gowon had sway over Calabar prison at that time, don't you think he would have gone to Calabar, and staged a big and real "Awolowo Releasing Party", instead of faking it at Ikoyi prison?
Think about about it, no matter how sick the truth makes you feel. Just think!

Good roads, oh yes, you don't want any complaints about that too.
Better health care?
Standard schools, and educational system?
Oh, how about adequate employment for the youths
Don't complan, because everything is alright!
|Politics / Re: RE: A More ABSOLUTELY Convincing Evidence To Show Gowon Released Chief Awolowo by naijaking1: 12:03am On Dec 01, 2019|
Maybe your spam generator has gone bad.
You want to change the argument that Ojukwu and easterners declared themselves independent from Nigeria? Is that what the argument is going to be now?
Whether you agreed or not for the independence of Biafra, that was objective of the war, and Biafra lost. We all know that.
Now to come here and claim that you did not know why Biafra fought Nigeria, and ask what I meant by Ojukwu ruling an independent Biafra is not only incoherent, but ignorant of your own basic facts.
Once again, and for you and your failing tribal politicians: Awolowo was jailed in Calabar city prison. Calabar city was under the control of Ojukwu, and Gowon NEVER went to Calabar to "release Awo while it was controlled by Biafrans.
Now, go to sleep, and hopefully wake up with better argument! And stop posting made up historical information without even a common sense logic to it in the future, you hear?
|Politics / Re: RE: A More ABSOLUTELY Convincing Evidence To Show Gowon Released Chief Awolowo by naijaking1: 10:58pm On Nov 30, 2019|
Evidence we need is the one showing that Gowon's federal government busted into Calabar prison, freed Awolowo, and brought him to Ikoyi prison. If you have no evidence to show a forcible military action, maybe a letter, or an agreement with Ojukwu the ruler of the then independent Biafra, including Calabar prison at that time, asking for the release of Awolowo, then you convince nobody!
Imagine where a British prisoner was held in Berlin during the WWII, released by German authorities, taken to London, and then Churchill is celebrating "releasing" the prisoner from jail
You not only believe this untenable scenario, but you're wasting bandwidth posting orchestrated press releases to mark release of the prisoner in London.
Receiving a prisoner in Lagos is not the same as releasing that prisoner in Lagos.
Give me a break!

You're a big time victim of Ojukwu/Gowon publicity b.s
Facing facts here, ask yourself why Awolowo was purportedly released from "Ikoyi prison' in camera while he was actually held in Calabar?
Did Gowon have control of federal facilities in the east at the end of July 1966.
When Awolowo petitioned Ironsi in July 1966, it set off a frenzy between Ojukwu and Gowon about who would get credit for releasing him. Ojukwu released Awo at the end of July, but it took a few days for Awo to get to Ikenne, and then Lagos where Gowon staged the publicity stunt of the release on camera.
Awolowo was not the only federal prisoner released by Ojukwu.
Ever wondered why Awolowo never addressed the release issue openly when he was alive?

Ojukwu Released Awolowo From Calabar Jail,QED:”I released Awolowo from jail. Even that, some people are beginning to contest as well. Awo was in jail in Calabar. Gowon knows and the whole of the federal establishment knows that at no point was Gowon in charge of the East..”–Odumegwu Ojukwu
New York[RR] Awka–In this interview with Rudolf Okonkwo, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu categorically said that he released Awolowo from Calabar prison, he added, that Gowon and all federal establishment knows that Gowon was at no time in charge of the East, Republic Reporters gathered.
Mr. Okonkwo troubled by multiple argument font and back with S’West and East, pointedly asked Ojukwu whether there was a meeting, “Did the meeting take place, and was there such an agreement?’. Ojukwu response was that, he indeed released Awolowo from Calabar Prison house.
Hear Ojukwu speak for himself:
“We’ve said this over and over again, so many times, and people don’t understand; they don’t want to actually. If you remember, I released Awolowo from jail. Even that, some people are beginning to contest as well. Awo was in jail in Calabar. Gowon knows and the whole of the federal establishment knows that at no point was Gowon in charge of the East. The East took orders from me. Now, how could Gowon have released Awolowo who was in Calabar? Because of the fact that I released him, it created quite a lot of rapport between Awo and myself and I know that before he went back to Ikenne, I set up a hotline between Ikenne and my bedroom in Enugu. He tried like an elder statesman to find a solution. Awolowo is a funny one. Don’t forget that the political purpose of the coup, the Ifeajuna coup that began all this, was to hand power over to Awo. We young men respected him a great deal. He was a hero.
Ojukwu, added, “I thought he was a hero and certainly I received him when I was governor. We talked and he was very vehement when he saw our complaints and he said that if the Igbos were forced out by Nigeria that he would take the Yorubas out also. I don’t know what anybody makes of that statement but it is simple. Whether he did or didn’t, it is too late. There is nothing you can do about it. So, he said this and I must have made some appropriate responses too. But it didn’t quite work out the way that we both thought. Awolowo, evidently, had a constant review of the Yoruba situation and took different path. That’s it. I don’t blame him for it. I have never done. he said.

A little education leads to a little information.
A little information leads to a little knowledge
A Little knowledge leads to a little more question
A little more question leads to people calling you Igboman
A little after that, they call you Biafran
..and then you'll soon be sounding like Nnamdi Kalu!
Is it not better just keep your ignorance, and hatred for Igbos?
