TREASURE YOUR WIVES OH BIAFRAN MEN !

TREASURE YOUR WIVES OH BIAFRAN MEN !

Men should always understand that women by their nature, are weaker vessels. That is how God created them. There is the need for us to learn how to pet, love and encourage them in every circumstance. They are blessings to us and so, must be treasured and understood. It is really unfortunate that negligence of these factors by most Biafran married men in our present time, has escorted some wives to early graves.

We should repent from these evil twins of neglect and frustration being meted on our women if we must help them to fulfill their destinies in life. Some of them have even purposefully taken their lives because of frustration in fulfilling their purposes in marriage and yet their husbands remain carelessly unconcerned.

It is important that the feelings and emotions of our wives (women) be closely monitored. Time must be created to give them due attention. Cherish and constantly prove to your wife, your love care and concern. Occasionally take her out and accord her the importance of her worth to you as a man and in your family. Engage her at home in discussions and lovely chats and not subject her to children production machine or house help that must be used and dumped at will.

Honestly, the spirit of buying and selling has ripped our men off their sworn marital duties to their wives. It is divinely mandated that all married men should as a matter of responsibility, take complete care of their wives who are supposedly their partners in the home and other relevant life endeavors. Money is not everything. Women need undivided love, attention, care and encouragement. The crude and unromantic nature of most of our Biafran men towards their wives nowadays, are not just only annoying but disappointing. It is a betrayal of trust. We must not trade the value, happiness and safety of our wives for business and monetary gains.

Marriage is not a do or die affair honestly. Instead of it becoming an avenue of taking lives, it is better to just call it quits as the last option.

MORE IPOB FAMILIES EMERGE IN NKANU-WEST IN ENUGU STATE, BIAFRALAND, AS SIX UNITS AND A ZONE GOT DULY INAUGURATED

BREAKING:

MORE IPOB FAMILIES EMERGE IN NKANU-WEST IN ENUGU STATE, BIAFRALAND, AS SIX UNITS AND A ZONE GOT DULY INAUGURATED

Few months back, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Enugu family, dutifully embarked on the inauguration of newly created units and zones according to pattern. The inauguration has steadily been carried out in diverse places  on weekly basis across the State.

Encouraging successes recorded from this exercise stem from the resilient activeness of the Enugu Mobilization Team. This department is saddled with the responsibility of creating additional units and zones of IPOB families, more especially within the rural communities. The Enugu State Mobilization Department is ably directed by Mazi Egwuatu Chukz and has remained relentless since inception. Successes so far recorded are as a result of the committment and sacrifices of the team's membership just few months after take off. Most communities and local government areas within the State have been reached and these include: Obioma community in Udi local government area, six communities within Nsukka local government area, Isiuzor local government area, Nkanu-West and Nkanu-East local government areas, Enugu Urbago in Enugu-South as well as Enugu-East local government area.

There has really been a tremendous success in the establishment of additional family units in Nkanu-West local government area within a couple of weeks. Six big units are currently being mobilized for inauguration across diverse locations within the local government area even as some outstanding units await action. The mobilization team is strenuously working as these family units are conscientiously being nurtured in line with the standard of the IPOB global family.

Recently established units and zone:

* On Thursday 8th August 2019, Amuri units were created with coordinators and mobilizers appointed to enhance coordination, awaiting official inauguration.

* On Thursday 29th August 2019, Amodu - Awkunanaw community was mobilized and duly inaugurated.

* On Tuesday 13th August 2019, Obe community was mobilized and subsequently inaugurated.

* On Saturday 24th August 2019, Ugboawka road was successfully inaugurated as autonomous units.

* Before end of August 2019, Ozalla-Nkanu was equally inaugurated.

* On Thursday 12th September 2019, Onitsha-Agu Akpugo was successfully inaugurated.

The joy of it all, is that these units have large number of membership as the least amongst them accounts for sixty eight (68) persons. However, the expected number of membership within a unit, is forty (40). The Enugu State Coordinator has already put them on notice that in the nearest future, more units will be carved out from amongst them. There are several places that have been touched in Nkanu-West though, but not included at the time of filing in this report. Numerous locations yet begging for IPOB families' establishment abound as Biafra freedom remains the only tenable option every sane Biafran presently dreams about.

It should be stated here that in all these aforementioned inaugurations, members of the Enugu State executive and the State Coordinator himself, have been exceptionally outstanding in their supports. They ensured that laid down protocols were adequately complied with. Necessary documentations and materials were duly handed over to the newly established families through their executives. The media volunteer department was readily on hand to carry out required duties.

The mobilization department is pro-actively working to ensure that available resources are properly channeled as provided by the IPOB family members of the State. Rapid growth is envisioned in the areas by reason of the encouraging developments so far recorded.

XENOPHOBIC ATTACKS: ACTS OF CRUELTY AGAINST FELLOW HUMANS

XENOPHOBIC ATTACKS: ACTS OF CRUELTY AGAINST FELLOW HUMANS

South Africans have taken a nefarious move which definitely will provoke unprecedented scolding even globally, to their government. Taking a look at the scene and restraint, no matter how you may have taught about it, I will never believe that South Africa is better than Biafra (South-East and South South) regions of Nigeria combined together or in the worst case scenario, Nigeria itself in entirety. The historical facts abound for all to cross check and even the internet records.
How would you like to look at it? Is it based on knowledge, wealth, education, Industries, sound ideology, etcetera? It is obviously irreconcilable!

Blaming South Africans for burning down the shops of our people, maiming them, killing and carrying out other atrocities, resulted from the despicable antecedents of the Nigerian government. Politicians squander the resources of the people they claim to be representing with reckless abandon. The system was created to be so.

In a Biafran nation, politicians can never condescend to such level of inhumanity. They will ordinarily be humane in their dispositions, actively living up to their avowed responsibilities to the  point that no Biafran would travel to South Africa or anywhere in the world, to be killed and burnt alive. When one says that Nigerian politicians are wicked, senseless, irresponsible and evil, such transcends to every aspect of life. They are the worst of vampires ever to be seen. Nigeria as a country, is extremely shitholic.

Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler were never the worst rulers or the most wicked human beings that ever lived. People that are worst than them still exist and you will find most of them in Africa, with greater number residing in Nigeria. That is why South Africans will have the audacity to lay their hands on our people, kill them and loot their shops.

The killings of our brothers in South Africa was orchestrated by the British and if not, why would one conceptualize the lumping together or amalgamating people of different ideologies, subjecting them to servitude, misery and death? It is now better understood why the Nigerian Senator, Ike Ekweremadu was manhandled by family members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), in Nuremberg, Germany. That did not stem from hatred  but understandably born out of years of frustrating corruption indices of these evil and inhumane politicians. There exits no industries for employment in Nigeria but only hotels, filling stations, estates that employ few secondary school graduates and dropouts. The rest of their ill gotten wealth are taken abroad, even to this same South Africa we are talking about. The jobless youths that were denied opportunities who tried on their own to give their lives a meaning, are called fraudsters and are either jailed, humiliated and killed abroad.

These politicians are the people that have enslaved us for years, giving South Africans the ample opportunity and effrontery to kill our brothers. They are responsible for the brain drain of talented Nigerians abroad. If Nigeria was created to work, how would you think that all these countries hunting down our brothers like lassa-fever infested rodents would be this emboldened in their acrimonious trade? Realistically, Nigeria has not worked for more than fifty years now and can never work. This is due to the underneath evidential instance amongst many others:

* 2017 FEDERAL ALLOCATION

The Federation Account Allocation Committee (FAAC) disbursed the sum of N2.38 trillion to the Federal Government of Nigeria in 2017 while States received a total sum of N1.79 trillion within the period under review. The amount disbursed to the Federal Government comprised of N2.12 trillion as Gross Statutory Allocation, N139.39 billion as Valued Added Tax (VAT), N32.74 billion as NNPC refund and the distribution of N24.24 billion from FOREX equalization fund. Akwa Ibom and Rivers States received the highest allocation of N143.61billion and N119.63billion respectively in the same year while Osun and Cross River States received the least allocation of N10.44 billion and N23.45 billion respectively, in that order.

NIGERIA BUDGETARY ALLOCATION AND THE CONTINOUS MISERY OF THE PEOPLE (PART 1)

NIGERIA BUDGETARY ALLOCATION AND THE CONTINOUS MISERY OF THE PEOPLE (PART 1)

NIGERIA ALLOCATION 2018

The Federation Account Allocation Committee (FAAC) disbursed the sum of N3.19 trillion to the Federal Government of Nigeria in 2018 while states received a total of N2.57 trillion within the period under review. The amount disbursed to the Federation comprised of N2.8 trillion as net statutory allocation, N156.98 billion as valued added tax (VAT), N10.66 billion as NNPC refund and the distribution of N128.41billion from the FOREX equalization fund.

Delta and Akwa Ibom States received the highest allocation of N213.63 billion and N202.37 billion respectively. Osun and Cross River States received the least allocations of N22.84bn and N36.95bn in that order. Five trillion naira (₦5,570, 000, 000, 000, 000), that is approximately $13, 925, 000, 000, 000 if the country's exchange rate stood at ₦400 per dollar, the total amount of money disbursed in Nigeria for 2017 and 2018 would amount to that figure. This was the sum total of money spent on this grossly corrupt and retrogressive country called Nigeria. The question then would be, where else is this colossal amount of money in Nigeria really reflecting if not in the private pockets and bank accounts of the politicians?

JANUARY 2019

The Federation Account Allocation Committee (FAAC) disbursed the sum of N649.19 billion to the three tiers of government in Nigeria in January 2019 from the revenue generated in December 2018. The amount disbursed comprised of N547.46 billion from the Statutory Account, N100.76 billionn from Valued Added Tax (VAT) and N976.53 million exchange gain difference of N70 billion.

Federal government received a total of N270.17 billion from the N812.76 billion. States received a total of N178.04 billion and local governments received N133.83 billion. The sum of N45.36 billion was shared among the oil producing states at the rate of 13% derivation fund.

Revenue generating agencies such as Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) and Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) received N4.69 billion, N4.04 billion and N8.04 billion respectively as cost of revenue collections. Further breakdown of revenue allocation distribution to the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) revealed that the sum of N216.57 billion was disbursed to the FGN consolidated revenue account; N4.81billion was shared as part of derivation and ecology, N2.43 billion as stabilization fund, N8.15 billion for the development of natural resources, and N5.82 billion to the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja.

FEBRUARY 2019

The Federation Account Allocation Committee (FAAC) disbursed the sum of N660.37 billion to the three tiers of government in February 2019 from the revenue generated in January 2019. The amount disbursed comprised of N497.12 billion from the Statutory Account, N104.47 billion from Valued Added Tax (VAT), N8.12 billion as excess charges recovered, N50 billion distributed as FOREX Equalization Fund and N654.70 million exchange gain differences.

Federal Government received a total of N275.33 billion from the N660.37 billion. States received a total of N182.17 billion and local governments received N136.88 billion. The sum of N48.49 billion was shared among the oil producing states as 13% derivation fund.

Revenue generating agencies such as Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) and Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) received N5.66 billion, N7.62 billion and N4.07 billion respectively as cost of revenue collections. Further breakdown of revenue allocation distribution to the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) revealed that the sum of N221.33 billion was disbursed to the FGN consolidated revenue account; N4.94 billionn shared as share of derivation and ecology, N2.47 billion as stabilization fund, N8.30 billion for the development of natural resources, and N5.90 billion to the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja.

IT IS NEEDFUL TO REPATRIATE ALL USA BASED NIGERIANS

IT IS NEEDFUL TO REPATRIATE ALL USA BASED NIGERIANS

No matter how pretentious some people would tend to be, it is noteworthy to state here that hypocrisy and insincerity are the worst to contend with, than the resultant effects of Boko Haram and Fulani killer herdsmen activities combined. It is just a shame! The treacherous antecedents of those Nigerians resident in the United States of America surpass that of these war criminals cum arch-genocidists, in the persons of late Benjamin Adekunle (Black scorpion), Yakubu Gowon and Theophilus Danjuma. To these USA based Nigerians, their love for One-Nigeria in their thinking, rates more than that of late Zik of Africa, (Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe), who sacrificed all for the so-called Nigerian independence of 1960.

This USA based Nigerian intelligentsia comprises of a company of faceless political jobbers sponsored from Abuja. They are shamelessly springing up in their desperate attempt to justify their pay by churning out all manner of imbecilic letters through the social media against a civilized organization (IPOB), that is justly contending with corrupt Nigerian government and politicians. The impoverishment of the downtrodden and their gruesome killing  by the Nigerian security forces and different Fulani Islamic terror groups, is to say the least, most despicable even in a democracy.  The spate of killings and economic woes prevalently being witnessed in the country, should constitute enormous burden for them to write about rather than toeing the path of self-destruction and disgusting hypocrisy.

Going through the purported letter the so-called Atlanta-based forum of Nigerian professionals wrote to President Donald Trump, one can only conclude that it is actually time for the governments of all the foreign countries to begin to deport these "lovers of Nigeria". They have to come back so that they can begin to take the heats arising from the activities of Fulani herdsmen, Boko Haram terrorists, the grossly devastating economic woes, despotic antecedents of the Nigerian government and of course, death.

Pat Alao-Moses and Moses Omotosho (Yoruba) that claim to love Nigeria and Nigerians, never deemed it fit to write to the USA President based on the relentless dehumanization and killing of the indigenous people in Benue State and elsewhere. They love Nigeria and her citizens, yet they never considered it expedient to rightly condemn the brazen acts of impunity/rascality of President Muhammadu Buhari, his government cabals and the Nigerian security operatives against the family members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and members of Shia Islamic Sect (Shi'ites). Perhaps these self-serving merchants of evil, may have forgotten the full import of the statement of the USA President about Africa and the irredeemably crippled/corrupt Nigeria when he said: "They have a history of criminality with more of them in almost every country of the world, jailed. So I do not think we know them. They are not worthy enough to acquire a country of their own"....US President Donald John Trump.

When the marauding Islamic terrorists known as Fulani herdsmen gruesomely killed a Catholic Priest, Reverend Father Paul Offu on the 1st of August 2019, in Enugu, these grossly compromised individuals never thought it wise to condemn the act and write President Trump. The brazenly deficient letter purportedly written to the American President will definitely serve as a revelation of the killers of IPOB family members during pro-Trump inauguration rally in Igweocha, as the 45th US President few years back. This moronic bunch of self-acclaimed intellectuals based in  Atlanta - Georgia, in the United States of America, have succeeded in not only exposing their stupidity and ignorance, but have equally dug their own graves. They, most assuredly, will be deported back from the US for trying to compel her government to go against the cherished tenets of the nation's just laws and human rights. The American government needs not be tutored on what IPOB fully stands as an organization. Nigeria is already at the precipice and nothing will deliver her from imminent disintegration.

FAMILY WRITERS PRESS EDITORIAL: JOURNALISM, PROPAGANDA AND NEWS CENSORSHIP IN NIGERIA

FAMILY WRITERS PRESS EDITORIAL: JOURNALISM, PROPAGANDA AND NEWS CENSORSHIP IN NIGERIA

From time immemorial, various state sponsored censorship on news articles and reports have been recorded in Nigeria which can never find comfort amongst well informed minds. It is therefore important to fully understand this malady in the country and how it has steadily resisted meaningful developments vis-a-vis the roles of the powers that be, against vibrant and professional journalism.

Conditioned or better still, compromised Nigerian journalists have unfortunately, been so bereft of progressivism in the generation and originality of their news items which have really become issues of concern. Ethical journalism has grossly been compromised in this part of the world. Nigeria means different things to different people and so, fundamentally and constitutionally, is supposed to provide the enabling environment needed to engender and advance the preservation of journalistic ethos amidst inherent diverse cultures of the people. Ethnic and religious concerns must have to be factored in and treated with fairness and in diplomacy. It is shamefully disappointing that having the opposite has rather become the case.

The Nigerian government is extremely corrupt by every standard which has inadvertently, institionalized news censorship across board. This has gravely encouraged bribery by government agents/officials of all supposed people-oriented media outlets. Freedom of expression ought to have been the exclusive right of all citizens in the country. This is clearly provided for and protected by section 39 (1) of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Despite this constitutional provision however, the Nigerian media has been in firm control of the government right from history. The constitution explicitly grants every citizen the right of freedom of expression as well as the Press. The media is only theoretically enjoying this as it's viability is withdrawn at will by the same government when it's evil policies and intents feel threatened. Tool of propaganda (lies and deceit) has been strictly in use as a key to garner public support through the media industry.

Propaganda which is a form of communication, employs the usage of variety of techniques to try to negatively or positively influence the decision of the populace towards an ideology, position or agenda. This goal is often being achieved through the instrumentality of misleading information, swaying people's opinion and belief into agreeing with an alien formulation. In our daily endeavors, we are made to go through hundreds of divergent propaganda machinaries and journalistic works.  Differentiating between the two is not cumbersome as they have noticeable traits. Propaganda itself, is simply and clearly premised on biased view point while ethical journalism represents presentation of news or information in an unbiased stand point. Media bias occurs when professional news outlets choose to blatantly omit facts, perspectives or sources and resort to jaundiced stories that align with sponsored agenda against the popular wish of the people, through government inducements or threats.

The 1967 war of attrition targeted against Biafrans by the Nigerian government clearly depicts an example of what propaganda means as orchestrated by the British. The colonialists sold lies to the nations of the world through their media, thereby swaying them into backing Nigeria to unleash mayhem against Biafrans which lasted for three good years. Over 3.5 million Biafrans including men, women, children and the elderly perished as a result. It is widely known that propaganda and news/information censorship play potent roles in a society, taking instance from Nigeria/Biafra debacle that is yet persistent. Limiting this evil drive to the events of past history, amounts to gross disservice and misconception. It is still here with us by the events of the Nigerian government of today and it must have to be roundly confronted and defeated.
