PRINCE ARTHUR EZE'S REJECTION OF PETER OBI: A SIGN OF GOOD OAMEN, AN INDICATION THAT THERE IS TROUBLE IN THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS IN NIGERIA, THE VERY REASON THE MASSES MUST STAND BY PETER OBI

PRINCE ARTHUR EZE'S REJECTION OF PETER OBI: A SIGN OF GOOD OAMEN, AN INDICATION THAT THERE IS TROUBLE IN THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS IN NIGERIA, THE VERY REASON THE MASSES MUST STAND BY PETER OBI

Before I tell us why the open rejection of Peter Obi, the Labour Party Presidential Candidate in the 2023 elections by Prince Arthur Eze is a good OAMEN, a sign of good thing to come for the ordinary Nigerian and the very reason Nigerians must stand up to support Peter Obi, let me tell those who do not know Prince Arthur Eze who he is.


Arthur Eze is a Nigerian oil mogul, philanthropist, politician, and the CEO of Atlas Oranto Petroleum, the largest privately held Nigerian exploration and production group. The Igbos call him, ‘ozoigbondu’ of Igboland and he is said to be the 8th wealthiest man in Africa. Prince Arthur Eze is from Anambra State.


*WHY ARHTUR EZE IS AFRAID OF PETER OBI*


Before the emergence of Peter Obi as governor of Anambra State in 2006,  Anambra State was one of the most dangerous states in Nigeria, held down by armed robbers on one side and on the other side, a set of very greedy and dangerous political godfathers which included amongts others, Prince Arthur Eze,  Chief Chris Uba  and many others.


Anambra State became ungovernable from 1999 to 2003 under Gov. Chiwonke Mbadinuju, a PDP governor, as it was a constant tusle between the governor and these greedy godfathers on who to control the finances of the State. In order to make sure that Chiwonke Mbadinuju is not given a second term in office, the tusle let to the killing of the Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association, Anambra branch and his wife  to finally tarnish the image of the then governor and put a stop to his second term ambition.


Chief Chiwonke Mbadinuju was succeeded in office by Dr. Chris Ngige another PDP governor in 2003 who was again sponsored by these greedy political godfathers and cabals. Again, Dr. Ngige was not allowed to rule the State as his refusal to part with almost all the internally generated revenue of the State  was seen as an a front and arround 2005, Dr. Ngige, a sitting governor was forcefully kidnapped and asked to resign which he refused. 


By providence, in 2006, the Judiciary came to the rescue of the Anambra people by declaring Peter Obi the actual winner of the 2003 governorship election in the state which saw the removal of the cabal-sponsored Chris Ngige from office and brought normalcy back to the State and the cabals who had no hands in the emergence of Peter Obi had to return to whatever business they were doing and that marked the end of them feasting on Anambra treasury, an act Arthur Eze will never forgive Peter Obi.


Again, Prince Arthur Eze as one of the Igbo 'political leaders' has been one of those negotiating nationally for what comes to the Igbo people. He has since 1999 remained one of the cabals that is on the neck of Nigeria. Recent news has it that since 1999 to date, for  anyone to become governor of Anambra State, you must meet certain condition given by Arthur Eze, except in the case of Peter Obi, which has much to do with parting with certain percentage of the State's internally generated revenue and giving him powers to appoint certain numbers of commissioners. No wonder, Gov. Chukwuma Soludo(Nwa Mgbafo) and Prince Arthur Eze are currently best of friends and the first action in office by Soludo as governor was to increase taxes paid by taxis and motorcycle riders.


So as to remain relevant both in business and politics, Prince Arthur Eze has remained friend with all the presidents in Nigeria and in 2019, he told the Igbo people to vote for Muhammadu Buhari because Buhari will handover to Engr. Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State. These formed part of the reasons Engr. David Umahi defected from PDP to APC  and today, will Buhari still hand over to David Umahi? Arthur Eze is currently asking Igbos to support Atiku Abubakar because Atiku will handover to Gov. Chukwuma Soludo. Will the Igbos and Nigerians believe this deceit from him again? 


Prince Arthur Eze has never supported any cause that will not be to the benefit of his business. His fear about Peter Obi is the general fear currently inherent in every person, man or woman that has been feasting  on Nigeria's treasury who believes the emergence of Peter Obi as president of Nigeria in 2023 will put a stop to it.


For you ordinary Nigerian yearning for good governance, hear me , more people like Arthur Eze will come up in the days ahead to say they don't support Peter Obi. But these are clear signs that there is trouble in the kingdom of darkness in Nigeria, a good oamen and reason we must all work to deliver Peter Obi in 2023 to free Nigeria and Nigerians from their captivity and bondage. If Zambia, Kenya, Rwanda could do it, my people, we can do it too in 2023.

Manchenster United lost at home against Visiting Aston Villa

Manchenster United lost at home against Visiting Aston Villa

 So the FULL TIME ended in favour of the visitors as the final whistle goes on a game in which pretty much everything has gone wrong for United. Villa are 1-0 winners at Old Trafford.


Villa send the ball in and were able to defended it thereby went away with three points in the end. 


Man United were duly punished
as a great header from Hause gave Villa the needed points. 

Missed!
Bruno Fernandes takes it... and it's an awful penalty. Skied over the bar. It was Hause who handballed, ironically. 

Fernandes missed a 93rd-minute penalty as Aston Villa won at Old Trafford for the first time in 12 years in a pulsating match.

He blazed high over the bar in front of the Stretford End as United’s unbeaten start to the Premier League season came to an end.

Having suffered an early Carabao Cup exit at home to West Ham, United have lost their past two games without scoring.

Justice Sikiru Oyinloye of the Kwara State High Court sitting in Ilorin on Friday, September 3, 2021 sentenced one Adigun Oladapo Oludele, a final year student of the University of Ilorin, to one year imprisonment for offences bordering on internet fraud.

The court also ordered that the sum of N158,000 (One Hundred and Fifty Eight Thousand Naira) domiciled in the convict’s GTB account that was found to be proceed of unlawful transactions as well as his Lexus IS250 with registration number KJA 141 GU Lagos be forfeited to the Federal Government of Nigeria.









Also forfeited to the Federal Government were the convict’s iPhone 12, iPhone 7, Apple watch and 2 laptops, which were recovered from him at the point of arrest.

Adigun, 25, was prosecuted on two counts by the Ilorin Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

He fraudulently obtained the sum of $6,3280.00 (Six Thousand, Three Hundred Twenty Eight United States Dollars) as benefit from the Ohio Pandemic Unemployment Assistance Portal of the United States of America.

One of the counts reads: “That you, Adigun Oladapo Oludele and one Ganiu Samson (at large) sometime between December 2020 and June, 2021 at Ilorin, within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court, with intent to defraud did cheat by personation via the Ohio Pandemic Unemployment Assistance portal, U.S.A for which $6, 328.00 was paid as benefits and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 321 of the Penal Code Law and punishable under Section 324 of the same Law.”

The Defendant pleaded guilty to the charge.

Following his plea, counsel to the EFCC, Andrew Akoja, urged the court to convict the defendant. The defence counsel, T.A Hammed, did not oppose this position.

In his judgment, Justice Oyinloye said, ''This Honourable Court have not seen any reason why the defendant should not be convicted as the prosecution has placed enough materials before the court to prove its case beyond reasonable doubt”.

The judge consequently pronounced Adigun guilty and sentenced him to one year imprisonment with option of fine of N250,000 (Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira)

AFRICAN ACTION CONGRESS (AAC), BENUE STATE MOURNS COMRADE USHAHEMBA YAKUBU

AFRICAN ACTION CONGRESS (AAC), BENUE STATE MOURNS COMRADE USHAHEMBA YAKUBU

17th August, 2021


It is with a deep sense of grief that we announce the death of Comrade Ushahemba Yakubu, a member of our revolutionary political party in Guma LGA of Benue State.

He was killed yesterday evening by killer Fulani herdsmen around his community in Guma LGA of the state. 

Earlier displaced by herdsmen in 2018, he lived as an IDP in “Camp 1” at Daudu till yesterday when he was gruesomely murdered.

It is more painful to remember that he partook in the #June12Protest in Benue state, tagged #BenueUnderAttack; a peaceful protest against the incessant killings in the state by herdsmen, one that was shamefully opposed by government security agencies who have consistently failed in protecting vulnerable citizens.

His death is another painful reminder of the gross failure and incompetence of the Muhammadu Buhari led govt which was proactive in arresting, jailing and torturing five(5) comrades from the same community for joining the June12 Protest.


While we grieve painfully and condole members of his family, we also urge all members of the AAC and well meaning Nigerians to continue in their legitimate demand for social justice and equality for all, as well as the resignation of an irresponsible President.

Rest in Power comrade Ushahemba.

Solidarity Forever!

Cuba tops Caribbean medal tally as Olympiad winds up




Seven Caribbean nations appear on the final medal table from the Summer Olympic Games which ended here yesterday, with Cuba topping the list.

The Spanish-speaking Caribbean country won 15 medals as Caribbean nations finished with 15 gold, seven silver and nine bronze.


For the Cubans, their gold came in boxing through Andy Cruz, Julio la Cruz, Arlen Lopez and Roniel Iglesias, along with three-gold medal performance in rowing, allowing them to end in 14th place on the overall medal table.

The other Caribbean nations on the medal table were Jamaica, the Bahamas, Bermuda, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Grenada. All but one of the medals won by this group of countries came in athletics.

Gold medal winners Elaine Thompson-Herah and Hansle Parchment of Jamaica, Shaunae Miller-Uibo and Steven Gardiner of the Bahamas, along with Puerto Rican Jasmin Camacho-Quinn all made history.


Thompson-Herah became the first to complete a 100-200 metres ‘double-double’ and Parchment made Jamaica the first country other than the United States to win the 110 metres hurdles in successive Olympic Games.

That feat was last accomplished by the USA in 1988, when Roger Kingdom retained the title he won in 1984.

Miller-Uibo and Gardiner gave the Bahamas the honour of being the first Caribbean country to win both 400 metres gold medals in the same Games since 1984.


Camacho-Quinn is Puerto Rico’s first Olympic champion in athletics.

Jamaica’s medal haul of four gold, one silver and four bronze earned Thompson-Herah and her compatriots fifth place on the athletics medal table, behind the United States, Italy, Kenya and Poland.

The USA won seven gold, 12 silver and seven bronze medals.

The much-maligned games, postponed from last year due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, wrapped up yesterday with the closing ceremony in the country’s capital.

With rising COVID cases, the Games proceeded behind closed doors, with athletes forced to undergo extensive testing throughout the showpiece.

“There are no words to describe what you have achieved,” said Tokyo 2020 president, Seiko Hashimoto.

“You have accepted what seemed unimaginable, understood what had to be done, and through hard work and perseverance overcome unbelievable challenges.”

The closing ceremony showcased parts of Japan culture, amidst fireworks at the Olympic stadium, as the curtain came down on the Games, with France’s capital Paris set to take the baton in 2024.

“For the first time since the pandemic began, the entire world came together,” said International Olympic Committee president, Thomas Bach.



Nobody has ever organised a postponed Games before.”

The other Caribbean nations on the medal table were Jamaica, the Bahamas, Bermuda, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Grenada. All but one of the medals won by this group of countries came in athletics.

Gold medal winners Elaine Thompson-Herah and Hansle Parchment of Jamaica, Shaunae Miller-Uibo and Steven Gardiner of the Bahamas, along with Puerto Rican Jasmin Camacho-Quinn all made history.


Thompson-Herah became the first to complete a 100-200 metres ‘double-double’ and Parchment made Jamaica the first country other than the United States to win the 110 metres hurdles in successive Olympic Games.

That feat was last accomplished by the USA in 1988, when Roger Kingdom retained the title he won in 1984.

Miller-Uibo and Gardiner gave the Bahamas the honour of being the first Caribbean country to win both 400 metres gold medals in the same Games since 1984.


Camacho-Quinn is Puerto Rico’s first Olympic champion in athletics.

Jamaica’s medal haul of four gold, one silver and four bronze earned Thompson-Herah and her compatriots fifth place on the athletics medal table, behind the United States, Italy, Kenya and Poland.

The USA won seven gold, 12 silver and seven bronze medals.

The much-maligned games, postponed from last year due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, wrapped up yesterday with the closing ceremony in the country’s capital.

With rising COVID cases, the Games proceeded behind closed doors, with athletes forced to undergo extensive testing throughout the showpiece.

“There are no words to describe what you have achieved,” said Tokyo 2020 president, Seiko Hashimoto.

“You have accepted what seemed unimaginable, understood what had to be done, and through hard work and perseverance overcome unbelievable challenges.”

The closing ceremony showcased parts of Japan culture, amidst fireworks at the Olympic stadium, as the curtain came down on the Games, with France’s capital Paris set to take the baton in 2024.

“For the first time since the pandemic began, the entire world came together,” said International Olympic Committee president, Thomas Bach.



Nobody has ever organised a postponed Games before.”
