Article: Paradox Of A Corrupt Opposition Party In Power

By SKC Ogbonnia


The All Peoples Congress (APC) gained the Nigerian presidency on an enchanting mantra of change, particularly change from the tide of an endemic corruption that characterized the 16-year reign of the People Democratic Party (PDP). Unfortunately, however, over one and half years after it lost power, virtually all structures of government have remained in the firm grip of the PDP, the now opposition party. Not surprisingly, the hope for the much-anticipated change is gradually becoming a pipe dream.

News Release: COL. Aminu Iliyasu And His Lies Concerning The Military Massacre Of Biafrans In Port Harcourt On 20th January, 2017


The murderous Nigerian Army have been caught in another web of lies, this time from one Colonel Aminu Iliyasu described as the Deputy Director of Army Public Relations of 6 Division of the Nigerian Army based in Igweocha (Port Harcourt). A further check on this so-called Colonel revealed that he was promoted to his current rank based on ethnic quota system because he was not qualified for such promotion if properly evaluated by merit as with most uneducated Hausa-Fulani officers of the Nigerian Army. The now customary kill-and-deny tactics of the Nigerian Army is once again at play. This is not the first, neither is it going to be the last time that the blood-thirsty state-owned terror group known as the Nigerian Army will commit mass murder and shamelessly come out to deny it. The list is endless, from IPOB massacre in Onitsha, Aba, Igweocha, Nkpor, Asaba, Shiite massacres in Kaduna and Kano among others. International human rights groups have consistently labeled the Nigerian Army as perennial liars incapable of ever telling the truth when it comes to their culpability in the mass execution of unarmed civilians.

News Release: The Revised Plan By British Govt. To Assasinate Nnamdi Kanu

Kanu 

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) can authouritatively state that the British Government has revised its original plan of using non-traceable poison to assassinate Nnamdi Kanu, to a new plan of direct assassination using Boko Haram terrorists who are in custody in Kuje prison. The assassination will be carried out in the form of a stage-managed prison escape of detained Boko Haram terrorists. The new plan is to bring other members of Boko Haram living in Northern Nigeria to storm the Kuje prison and instigate a prison jailbreak which will result in the exchange of gunfire between them and security agencies during which Nnamdi Kanu will be purportedly caught in the crossfire. We repeat with all finality that the British Government is the mastermind of this plan.

Non conduct of Local Government poll and delay in cleaning up or updating the National Register of Voters for Anambra State are two major challenges facing the Government of Mr. William Maduabuchi Obiano and its ANSIEC as well as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and its Anambra State Resident Electoral Commissioner.
