Exposed!! The PVC Conspiracy Against The Igbos Of SE/SS (Must Read)

It has come to our notice that in the South East Region of Nigeria, INEC don’t have registration centers at all the ward level. In each state of the South East, INEC registration only takes place at the State Capital. The SE has hundreds of wards but more than 90% of these wards have no INEC Registration Centers. Buhari’s Government should keep deceiving itself while the World smile at his hypocrisy. I also believe that the same is occurring at the South South Region of Nigeria. Buhari, continue your evil against the glorious & free Igbo people of SE/SS. If anyone doubts my information, go to INEC office and get the list of the wards in the South East and investigate how many of these wards have INEC staff registering those that are 18 years and above. Go to all the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education and you won’t see any INEC Registration Centers there. Nnamdi Kanu will be smiling wherever he is and be saying ” Didn’t I tell you guys that Nigeria is a Zoo.? Ordinary Registration, that refused to register you guys. ” Buhari continue with your rigging but remember that God exist and will never allow we Igbos to be enslaved under your dream Evil Caliphate. Pls every Igbo person from SE/SS should tell Vanguard, Channels, CNN, BBC and every media company to investigate this fact at ward level. Tell them to find out how many wards exist and the % that has Registration Officers & Machines working in the Igbo speaking parts of SE and SS.

Adult:Prostitutes force Client to drink Water used for Washing Vaginas

A 32-year-old man identified as Ifeanyi Akpor in Asaba, Delta State is currently lying critical ill in one of the private clinics after he was allegedly beaten to stupor and forced to drink water used in washing private part by group of commercial sex workers. The incident it was gathered, occurred Sunday evening at the popular Cable Point Joint Asaba where hundreds of commercial sex workers eke out a living for themselves. Eyewitness said the victim, who was rescued by security agents, frequents the brothel where he allegedly makes love advanced to any available sex worker in sight, and most cases don’t pay. But this was not to be as the fateful Sunday turned out to be the worst moment in his life after he attempted not to pay the lady (name withheld), a mother of two children failed. Expectedly, the victim was said to have approached the sex worker for a round of sex and was given a bill of N3, 000, which he obliged, and paid. It was learnt that the first-round agreement allegedly terminated in a twinkle of an eye, but the victim pleaded for extra rounds, and a bill of N6, 000 was given to him.While his intercourse with the woman lasted, the commercial sex worker became uncomfortable with his action, especially his purported refusal to ejaculate, thereby pushing him off her to the ground. Sources said the victim allegedly struggled to have his way, but met a brick wall. He got angry and vowed not to pay the N6, 000.

The eye witness said that the prostitute engaged the man in a shouting match that attracted her “colleagues” to the scene where the victim was forced to drink the water. Police officers at the “A” Division who did not want their names in the print, confirmed that the matter was being investigated, adding that the suspect and her cohorts were quizzed before granted bail. Speaking to our reporter from his sick bed, the victim who claimed to be a trader at the popular Ogbeogonogo market in Asaba, said: “The suspect breached our agreement, when I insisted I must complete sex, they all beat me up and forced me to drink water used in washing their private parts.Since then, I took ill and began to have running stomach”.

Jacob Zuma’s resignation speech as South-Africa President

South Africa’s embattled President, Jacob Zuma on Wednesday night resigned from office with immediate effect. This followed increasing pressure by the ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC). Zuma in his resignation speech said division and violence in the ruling party influenced his resignation. His speech read: “Members of the Media, present here, Fellow South Africans, I address you after weeks of speculation about my future as President of the Republic of South Africa. In particular, I make reference to the much publicized and awaited decision of the African National Congress issued on 13 February 2018. It is now public knowledge that the National Executive Committee of the ANC resolved to recall me as the President of the Republic. I have also learned that, before I respond to the initial decision, a new decision has been made by the ANC, whose effect is that I have now been compelled to resign by way of a motion of no confidence, set down for tomorrow, 15 February 2018. The ANC is indeed the party on whose nomination I became a candidate for the Presidency of the Republic of South Africa after its victory of the national elections of 2014. It was on the ANC’s nomination that I was later elected by the majority in the National Assembly as the President of the Republic. I am forever indebted to the ANC, the liberation movement I have served almost all my life. I respect each member and leader of this glorious movement. I respect its gallant fight against centuries of white minority brutality, whose relics remain today and continue to be entrenched in all manner of sophisticated ways, in order to ensure the continued survival of white privilege. I do take seriously and am grateful to the ANC that, in the face of its revolutionary mission to ensure a better life for all and the creation of a non-racial, non-sexist and democratic South Africa, it deployed me at the pinnacle of its role in government. I was also elected in terms of section 86 of the Constitution and from that moment pledged my loyalty to the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa.
It has indeed been a great learning experience, a mammoth task, the performance of which can never be done without difficulty and learning on the way. None of us, no matter how perfect, can claim that the building of a new society and the marshalling of a former liberation movement into a modern political party all happen in a straight line. It has detours, human error and boulders strewn along the path. We will tell Zuma what he did wrong‚ says ANC The ANC has promised to explain to former president Jacob Zuma exactly what he did wrong. Because the struggle and politics are human activities, their pursuit is not without the taints of human nature. All my life, I have served and will continue to serve the ANC in its pursuit of the objectives of the National Democratic Revolution. I serve in my capacity as President of the Republic of South Africa within the prism of our much acclaimed Constitution, whose foundational values I fully subscribe to. I understand fully that while I serve at the pleasure of my party, the ANC, the door through which I officially came to serve the people of South Africa is the National Assembly, without which no political party can impose its candidate on the electorate, no matter how popular. This Constitutional line between Party and State is often forgotten in the usual business of party political contestations. As we fight our own battles in the corridors of political power, and sometimes serving the very interests of the oppressors of yesteryear, who joyfully celebrate as we lynch one another, we often forget the citizens on whose behalf we create a better life. We tend to place the political party above the supreme law of the country, which is the rule book for the country’s political engagement. I do not make this reference because I am above reproach. Nor do I wish to proclaim that in undertaking my political responsibilities I have been the epitome of perfection. If truth be told, none of us are. There has been much speculation about how the President of the Republic should exit his or her office. In my case, some have even dared to suggest that one’s perks and post-service benefits should determine how one chooses to vacate public office. Often these concerns about perks and benefits are raised by the very same people seeking to speak as paragons of virtue and all things constitutional. Some even suggest that the relevant constitutional provisions, sections 89 and 102, in terms of which the President should be removed from office, would constitute an embarrassment or humiliation. For that reason, various suggestions are made to help leaders avoid this constitutional route of vacating political office without perks. If we avail ourselves to serve in terms of the Constitution, we should be prepared, if needs be, and if those we serve deem it appropriate, to suffer the hardship that comes with our constitutional obligations. Whether we lose our post-political office benefits, should not determine how we act in the time of our departure. Nor did I agree to serve because there are no better cadres in the ANC and the country. Most importantly, I did not agree to serve in order to exit with perks and benefits of the Office of the President. Jacob Zuma may no longer be the president of South Africa, but we will miss his charisma. Here are some of the moments during his reign that made him the president with charm. It is my Party that placed me before the representatives of the people in the National Assembly to be elected. It is my Party that availed me to serve on the basis of the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. Make no mistake, No leader should stay beyond the time determined by the people they serve. Most importantly, no leader should seek an easy way out simply because they could not face life at the end of their term without the perks that come with their political office. I do not fear exiting political office. However, I have only asked my party to articulate my transgressions and the reason for its immediate instruction that I vacate office. This was important in view of the discussions I held with the President and Secretary General of the Party that were aimed at uniting our organization, the ANC. It is indeed true that there was an agreement, that even if the need arises that I should vacate the office before the end of term, there is a need to have a period of transition, during which I would delegate some of the functions to the Deputy President of the Republic. Of course, I must accept that if my Party and my compatriots wish that I be removed from office, they must exercise that right and do so in the manner prescribed by the Constitution. I fear no motion of no confidence or impeachment, for they are the lawful mechanisms for the people of this beautiful country to remove their President. I have served the people of South Africa to the best of my abilities. I am forever grateful that they trusted me with their Highest Office in the land. But when I accepted the deployment, I undertook to subject myself to the supreme law of the land, the Constitution. I also thank the citizens of South Africa for the privilege of serving as the President of the Republic since 2009. It has been an honour that I will cherish as long as I live. I wish to thank members of Cabinet, Deputy Ministers and the whole of government, national, provincial and local, for the positive spirit and cooperative manner in which we all worked. I also thank the other arms of state for the work we have accomplished. I thank all political parties who are in parliament for their contributions in making our democracy strong. I thank all stakeholders—business, labour, religious leaders, traditional leaders, youth, women’s groupings, the education sector and all others we have worked with over the years, united by the goal of moving South Africa forward. I thank the international community for the cooperation. I have also been disturbed by the instances of violence that have occurred because of the different views among members of our organization outside our headquarters, Luthuli House. No life should be lost in my name and also the ANC should never be divided in my name. I have therefore come to the decision to resign as President of the Republic with immediate effect. President Jacob Zuma resigned as leader of South Africa on Feburary 14 2018 during a televised address to the nation. Even though I disagree with the decision of the Leadership of my organization, I have always been a disciplined member of the ANC. As I leave I will continue to serve the people of South Africa as well as the ANC, the organization I have served all my life. I will dedicate all of my energy to work towards the attainment of the policies of our organization, in particular the Radical Economic Transformation agenda. I thank you, ngiyabonga.

2 Students of Nasarawa University Killed

The police in Nasarawa State on Wednesday confirmed the killing of two students of the Federal University, Lafia, by gunmen suspected to be armed robbers. Kennedy Idirisu, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) confirmed the killing to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lafia.

APC has Failed Nigerians – Tinubu

The National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, admitted that the ruling party has failed to meet the expectations of Nigerians after almost three years in office. He also said that the goodwill which it enjoyed during the 2015 general elections and the inauguration of the Muhammadu Buhari’s administration had been squandered. Tinubu therefore concluded that the APC has a lot of work to do to regain public confidence and solidarity before the 2019 general elections. The former Governor of Lagos State bared his mind on the state of the party on Wednesday in Abuja when he held a closed-door meeting with the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party at its secretariat. The meeting was Tinubu’s first since Buhari appointed him to reconcile all the feuding leaders of the APC in various states of the federation. In his down to earth assessment of the APC, Tinubu said that the party had faced several challenges since it took over power in 2015, stressing that it needs serious consultations and reconciliation moves to regain the goodwill of Nigerians. He listed some of the challenges confronting the APC as the disorder in the North Central and North East zones, killings and agitations, as well as intra-party squabbles. Tinubu said that the expectations of Nigerians had been high since the party won the presidential election in 2015, but regretted that the expectations had not been met. In a brief chat with journalists before he went for a close-door meeting with the NWC, the APC leader said that his visit was to consult with the party’s leadership, in line with the mandate given to him by the President, stressing that consultations and reconciliation were required since APC is still the hope of Nigerians for a better future. He said: “I am here to consult, since you are already aware of the directive and announcement of the President who is the leader of our party and the President of this country. “First, let me sympathise with our National Vice Chairman for North Central for the various incidents that are happening around that corridor, and may God bring peace to Benue, Taraba, Plateau, Nasarawa, and the country as a whole, and all other places being affected by the age-old system that we are now facing. “After the last convention of the party, congresses were held from various wards to elect representatives from the ward, local government and states levels as well as the national level. We worked hard for victory. We have never governed before, but we won the confidence of Nigerians to govern.

“We have a creed to really serve the country; change and reform the country. It is not easy to have those changes implemented like instant curfew. We have to grow and face challenges. “I sympathise with us and we should equally look at ourselves. Since we won the election, the expectations were very high and the goodwill was extremely high. But where are we today? “The solution is to seek opinion and advise on the various complexities around some states or if there is any national one, to reconcile, move the party in a cohesive manner and reposition and build the confidence among ourselves”. According to Tinubu, the challenges faced by the government and the President are enormous, noting that Nigerians were not paying attention to the various statistics that are available and “we have to push that. I won’t touch those areas yet,” he said. Earlier, the APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, who described Tinubu as a “Peace Ambassador”, said that his visit was significant as the President moves to heal wounds where the party has any, as well as to bring every member of the APC together under a single objective, which is to give the party a runaway victory in 2019.
