Join Wike to clean Amaechi’s mess in 8yrs: Obuah

Published by:

Felix Obuah, PDP Chairman.                                      Join Wike To Clean Amaechi’s
…As He Receives Scores Of APC Decampees From Ndoni
The Rivers State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bro. Felix Obuah has called on those still left in the fold of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State to leave the party and join Governor Nyesom Wike who is working hard to clean the ‘mess’ left by Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi after 8 years as Governor of the State.
Bro. Obuah, who made the call while receiving over 200 decampees from the APC in Ndoni, Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area Wednesday, said the former Governor, who is now Minister for Transportation, ran down the State and destroyed every sector of the State economy.
He said that the story of Amaechi’s 8-year misrule was pathetic but expressed joy that Governor Wike was working assiduously to return the State back to reckoning as the Treasure base of the nation.
Bro. Obuah hailed the decampees for leaving the APC which he described as ‘dead and about to be buried’.
He thanked them for doing what was needful, stating that the decampees are ‘repentant returnees’, who “sojourned to the APC against advice but have now retraced their steps back to the PDP, their original home”.
“I must say that your departure to the APC at the time did not go down well with us, but having retraced your steps back to party of your origin, we joyfully welcome you back”, he said, giving assurance that the PDP umbrella was large enough to accommodate all of its members.
Bro. Obuah called on the decampees to support the party as well as Governor Nyesom Wike who has turned the State around through well-articulated, people-oriented projects.
The PDP Chairman said kudos must also go to former Governor Peter Odili who turned around Ndoni Community to a well-developed place, recalling that before Dr. Peter Odili became Governor, it took three to four hours to travel from Omoku to Ndoni.
“Honour must be given to whom honour is due. Dr. Peter Odili’s legacies in Ndoni as well as Rivers State can never be forgotten in a hurry, and one of those milestones was giving Ndoni people access road and sand filling the Community to the admiration of all”, Bro. Obuah enthused.
Earlier in his speech to the State PDP Chairman, the leader of the decampees, Mr. Amifor Frank Osanebi said the event would remain memorable in their hearts, having as he said, translated from the APC which he said was truly an ‘Association of Past Criminals’ into the PDP which he say, ‘People are Developing People’.
“Our journey to the APC was nothing but a voyage of discovery. It was an illusion but we thank God who allowed us to go there in the first place so we can see the difference between APC and PDP. And the difference is like comparing darkness and light.
“APC represents darkness while PDP undoubtedly represents light and we have decided to follow the light and not darkness”, the leader of the APC decampees said.

DIPLOMACY OF PEACE AND WAR: A CASE STUDY OF NIGERIAN CIVIL WAR AND THE DIPLOMATIC RECOGNITION OF BIAFRA BY FOUR AFRICAN NATIONS : By STEVEN EWANSIHA

Published by:

 

 Abstract

The Nigerian civil war and the diplomatic recognition accorded Biafra by four African nations was precipitated by the crisis that trailed the counter coup of July 1966, and the massacre of southerners, mainly the Igbos in Northern Nigeria and the quest for secession by the Ojukwu led eastern region of Nigeria. The civil war evoked a great controversy, not only in Nigeria but in Africa and across the globe. The position of the international community and indeed the Organization of African Unity OAU were of crucial military and diplomatic importance to the conflicting sides. This paper, explores the diplomatic strategies adopted by the conflicting parties, and the recognition of Biafra by four African states namely Tanzania Cote d’Voire, Gabon, Zambia  The ineffective performance of the OAU in the conflict was a function of a cluster of factors which include the OAU charter, strategies and tactics of the body, and the attitudes of the disputants and major power intervention. The work sets to correct the wrong impression that the diplomatic recognition was , based on the principles of self determination and sovereignty of Biafra as against the true position of .humanitarian need to end the carnage thereby bringing the warring parties to the negotiating table, to ensure peaceful resolution of the crisis.
