[ Masterweb Reports: Tribute By Rev. C. K. Ekeke, Ph.D. ] - “The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life without a purpose.” The Late Dr. Myles Munroe / “Leadership is the capacity to influence others through inspiration motivated by passion, generated by vision, produced by a conviction, ignited by a purpose.” The Late Dr. Myles Munroe 

 
It is with heavy heart and deep sorrow; I pen this condolence message in honor of the late Dr. Myles Munroe, who perished on Sunday, November 9, 2014 along with his lovely wife, Ruth and adorable daughter, Charisa while flying in their private Learjet plane from Nassau to Freeport in Bahamas for their annual Global Leadership Forum which Dr. & Mrs. Myles Munroe host every year during the first week in November. Due to heavy down pour and bad weather, their private jet struck a shipping container crane in Freeport near the Grand Bahama International airport as it tried to land killing all nine persons on the plane, including Dr. Myles Munroe, his family members and his most senior church staff. 
 
 
I cannot believe Dr. Myles Munroe is gone from this earth realm into the heavenly along with his lovely wife. He was only 60.  This is tragic, devastating news. I’m shocked and saddened. The planet has lost a global treasure and a legendary leadership teacher and mentor.
 
 
On behalf of my family and Leadership Wisdom Institute, I wish Munroe’s only surviving son and their church family (Bahamas Faith Ministries International Fellowship) God’s strength and peace over the passing in glory of this eminent thinker, visionary, master teacher, and an author per excellence. Our hearts, sympathy, and condolences are with you and Bahamas Faith Ministries International Fellowship over this shocking and incalculable loss. The Caribbean community, Africa and indeed the entire global community have lost one of God’s greatest gifts to our world.
 
 
The later Myles Munroe was the founder of Bahamas Faith Ministries International Fellowship ministries, and host of Global Leadership Forum and other leadership conferences in Bahamas and around the world. He has authored more than 100 inspirational books on Purpose, Potential, Kingdom, Faith, Prayer, Leadership, etc.  
 
 
On one of his several visits to Nigeria, the international motivational speaker reechoed the lingering “trouble with Nigeria” and Africa as lack of leadership purpose. The renowned leadership teacher said that a “leadership purpose is revealed in whatever makes one angry.” He noted that “the trouble with Nigeria may be found in the context of people’s inability to do something about their anger wherever purpose is revealed. The leadership challenge in the continent he noted is because no one is angry enough or rather afraid to do something about their anger.”
 
 
As a passionate student of leadership – especially biblical leadership, I have had the opportunity to read many of the books written by the late Dr. Myles Munroe. I have met and sat on his conferences especially here in the U.S. I'm saddened by his demise but encouraged that the late Myles Munroe has left a great legacy. His books have brought great enlightenment, enriched and equipped millions of pastors and leaders throughout the world. In essence he fulfilled his purpose. He’ll remain a vital influence in my life as a leadership scholar and leader.
 
 
The late Myles Munroe was a true visionary, an original thinker, a great scholar, an international motivational speaker, master teacher, prominent preacher, insightful writer and author, godly father, husband and a mighty man of God. He was a man of dignity, honor, godly character and integrity. He was a brilliant scholar and intellectual giant. Myles Munroe was a literary giant, a prolific writer, an iconic figure and Bahamas’s pride. He was a rare human-being, a rare gem, a man of genuine righteousness and integrity. Dr. Myles Munroe and his wife were truly a gift of God to the Body of Christ and will be truly missed. 
 
 
Job 1:21 says, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised.” May the LORD bless Myles Munroe and his lovely wife, Ruth and keep you; May the LORD make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; May the LORD turn His face toward you and give you peace” (Numbers 6:24). Amen.
 
 
For the only surviving son, I pray God Almighty to encourage your heart and for you to know that your beloved ones have departed this earthly realm to be with the LORD in heaven.  They have entered into everlasting peace and glory where there are no more poverty, pain, sickness, and suffering. May God dry your tears and fill you and Bahamas Faith Ministries family with comfort during this time of grieve, sorrow, and sadness. May the Lord grant them eternal peace and give the bereaving family, church family, mentees, followers and admirers the fortitude to bear this incalculable and huge loss. May their souls rest in perpetual peace! Amen.
 
 
In his book, a ‘Call to Conscience,’ Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wrote, “death is not a period that ends the great sentence of life but a comma that punctuates it to more loft significance.” 
Myles Munroe and his works will live forever in our minds and hearts. Adieu my friend and mentor.
 
 
This life is a vapor and living is fleeting.
 
 
We bemoan today.
 
 
In deepest sympathy,
 
 
Dr. C. K. Ekeke is a public theologian, author, leadership scholar and consultant.

[ Masterweb Reports: Chief Sylvester Obi Dikas reports ] - I intend to defend the Hon Peter OBI STUNCHLY against the chorus of venomous attacks from individuals who do not seem to understand why Peter joined the PDP federal bureaucracy of Nigeria.But for one to understand the Psychological and Philosophical profile of Gov. Peter, one has to think strategically. Peter Obi’s ‘ recent ‘betrayal saga’ is quite in lockstep with Gen. Ojukwu’s advice.
 
Peter Obi is not a spider man. For a deeper understanding of Peter’s behavior, one needs to recall all the Economical miracles he performed in Anambra State as a two-term governor. One therefore should con jour up extraordinary works of this workaholic and think also about all the numerical and statistical evidence of his legacy. Time will soon demonstrate that Peter Obi didn’t and would not betray his sworn oath to his political surrogate father -Ojukwu-the People’s General. Contrary to public expectation,Hon Obi tactfully refused to talk about his final talks with Ojukwu because he doesn’t possess ‘Motor Mouth’
 
As the authorized Research Scholar of “Gen Ojukwu As An Institution”, this writer is equipped with ample privileged knowledge of the privileged relationship between Peter O bi and the People’s General, The veracity of my above referenced subject will become more apparent in the months and years ahead.
 

Meanwhile this writer advises that the Ad HOMINEM attacks on Peter Obi need to stop. It will be counter productive for the psycho- babbling to continue.
 
GEN. OJUKWU And his Politics of NEUTRALITY:
 
Close associates of Ojukwu know that like American Abraham Lincoln, Ojukwu is a complex, paradoxical contradictory super human. Before his death, he privately fed Peter Obi with the modern Political Dogma that the best approach in governance is playing –the “Politics of Neutrality.” The Theme of this philosophy is grounded on the appended premise:
 
** Regardless of one’s political affiliation,one can vote for the best man or woman in Presidential Elections. In other words,vote your conscience without any encumbrances.
 

** In this regard, Peter Obi did not betray anyone-APGA or any particular individual because he is simply dancing to the tune of his political surrogate father Gen. Ojukwu. Peter is doing what Ojukwu demanded of him.
 
** Ojukwu remains the Founding father of all Igbo race-whether they are APGA or PDP members.Gen Ojukwu advised Hon Obi to be in a advantaged position where he can assist all Igbo who are tragically historicaly, disadvantaged and disparaged by the Federal system.This explains basically why Obi jumped the ship. He’s following the dictates of Ojukwu who fought and died for all IGBO MEN AND WOMEN.-AND FOR THE MINORITIES OF THE MID WESTERN REGION of Nigeria.
 
** Peter Obi is therefore hard wired by Ojukwu to rub shoulders with the power centres of Nigeria-the arrow heads and the Rain-makers to persuade them toward the final work of permanent Reconstruction and Rehabilitation of all Eastern States of Nigeria. Peter Obi is therefore following the Marching Orders of GEN OJUKWU-the PEOPLE’S GENERAL. Peter is therefore Not a SPIDER MAN! -He simply chose not to talk about all his private discussions with Ojukwu.
 
** According to Ojukwu, Peter Obi is pathologically endowed to be a humanitarian- a Force of Nature whose DNA gravitates toward Philanthrophy.He is doing what he does best.
 
** Though, Peter Obi is not publicly celebrating his special relationship with Ojukwu. But Ojukwu privately advised him to persuade and encourage all Igbo to offer maximum psychological, and moral support to candidate JONATHAN {Ojukwu’s Archive,Independence Layout,Enugu,2010] Ojukwu also advised Jonathan to assist JONATHAN to win the 2nd term if he succeeds with his first term in the presidency. [2010-ENUGU]
 
** Ojukwu also advised Peter to operate under the Canopy of Billionaire Dangote,Chief Arthur Ezeh, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, Sen. Ben Obi, Secretary Anyiam Pius Anyiam , Sen. David Mark and Chairman Chief Victor Umeh. Gen. Ojukwu perceived these men as ‘Men with Nobility of heart.’
 
** Multiple dusty volumes in Ojukwu’s Library characterized Peter Obi as ‘Bishop Tutu of the Eastern States.’ I would therefore recommend that the Igbo treat him as a Political Untouchable for his monumental contributions to the Anambra State in particular.[Gen Ojukwu Library, Enugu]
 
** Gen Ojukwu had philosophically advised Gov. Obi to go beyond Party politics to fully serve the interests of all Eastern States and Ika Igbo areas which are still historically treated as the Archipelago of human suffering. Peter has therefore begun to build an ‘Enterprise Culture’ that would serve as the Driving Force that would culminate onto the Economic BOOM of the Future for all Nigerians.
 
When I consulted Gen Ojukwu,2009 in his Private Library, Enugu,he described young Peter Obi as follows:
 
” I observed that some latent qualities of Peter ARE his natural resilience and his extraordinary sense of philanthropy- his capacity to adjust to hard times and resist public cynicism and needless attacks. Peter has got the intellectual heft for emotional understanding of Entrepreneurialship. I admire his uncelebrated good sense of timing and urgency. Evidently, Peter has an insatiable cravings to serve the disenfranchised and the disparaged members of our society.” [Gen. Ojukwu,Enugu.]
 
In the name of all Ancient Czars of the Igbo kingdom and the spirit of GEN. OJUKWU who routinely practiced NECROMANCY and Quantum PHYSICS, let all Igbo understand why Peter Obi is doing what he is doing now.He has not betrayed APGA or the IGBO or anyone for the reasons referenced already.
 

There should, therefore be NO MORE acrimony or a public monumental display of the SAGA. Peter Obi did not discus this subject with APGA or Ojukwu’s wife- Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu or the inner luminaries of APGA? WHY? It’s because Peter is following a matching Order from Gen. Ojukwu. It was a top serious advice that should put Peter’s humility to a test. Peter was advised to develop political thick skin and do what he does best. ” Don’t forecast unborn future even to those dearest to you or me.We precariously live in man’s world afterall –you like it or not” Ojukwu warned Peter.
 
Ojukwu,instinctively expected acrimony and ‘cat-fights’ from the Igbo world as a result of Gov.Obi’s new role.
 

Gen OJUKWU would always respect the Egalitarian nature of the Igbo. In his final advice to Peter, Ojukwu lamented: “The egalitarian mentality of my people will always prevail. Don’t ever worry about it. It’s in their DNA- Nothing can change it -there were pre-ordained with the frontier propensity -The Igbo truly need some cleansing. ” the General remarked while in sick bed. [Video from London Hospital.]
** Ojukwu has a book on the Nativity of Peter Obi in his Enugu Library.He had an advice and warning for critics of the Igbo and Peter Obi particularly:
 
” Our potential, inherent enemies/critics should not take advantage of Peter Obi or any future leader of my people.They should be left to do whatever they want to do. Note that the Igbo have sharp knuckles, and they can deliver a decisive , powerful and painful punch when angered or provoked.”
 
For Peter Obi’s critics- and the Red-eyed zealots, Peter did not betray APGA or Ojukwu’s Political Philosophy or the Igbo. What Hon. Peter Obi did is totally what Gen.Ojukwu asked him to do. Peter doesn’t need to apologize for his progressive master plan. He’s completely oblivious of the Love and Admiration his political Godfather envisioned for him.
 
Those who continue to attack Gov. Obi are invariably attacking Gen. Ojukwu-the PEOPLE’S GENERAL.
 

Ojukwu fought and died prematurely for all the Igbo race. And Peter Obi is strategically complementary to Ojukwu’s dreams here on earth. Pete Obi and Gen Ojukwu are therefore, explicitly synonymous. All Igbo need to count the political and economic Blessings of Peter Obi before counting his woes.
 
I humbly advise the Igbo Elite and all Igbo Political Potentates to read the immortal words and Legacies of Gen. Ojukwu as a Political Credo. And please, don’t ever try to throw rocks and stones to our leaders for your own Political Gamesmanship.
 
:The clarion call for Chief Emeka Ojukwu, Jnr is to read his father’s Hand Writing on the wall and desist from further frustration and the 1,000,000-man match.I also advise EMEKA TO COMMUNICATE MORE with Gov. Peter Obi. I trust that all Igbo will feel better if they communicate comfortably with him because Gov. Obi is truly Gen Ojukwu’s Political Surrogate Son.
 
I advise all Igbo to read Gen. Ojukwu’s Final Lamentation 
 
” I” HAVE PAID MY DUES”
 
Peter ObI HAS NOT BETRAYED THE IGBO OR APGA.

[ Masterweb Reports: Press Release For Immediate Release ] -This is to let the general public and Abians in particular, to know that the sealing of the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) formerly Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) offices in the state was a judicial matter caused by the refusal of the EEDC to remit all Pay As You Earn (PAYE) taxes deducted from its workers salaries.
 
The Abia State Board of Internal Revenue BIR, whose statutory responsibility it is to handle taxation matters in the state audited the EEDC and from 2006 till date the EEDC has a PAYE Tax liability of Six Hundred and Twenty Three Million Naira ( 623 Million) which has been duly communicated to all relevant authorities including the Federal Ministry of power. However, the judgment debt from 2006 to 2011 as allowed by the extant laws and established a tax liability is four hundred and seventeen million, (N417million) naira against the EEDC and it was for this that demand notices were served on the company which it refused to pay.
 
The company was taken to court by the State Board of Internal Revenue BIR, as has been the case with other organizations. The High Court granted the Board an Order to seal their offices in order to recover the said amount.
 
On the 23rd of November 2013, the BIR attempted to seal the EEDC (PHCN) then, but it used the military and the police to resist the sealing.
 
However, the company came to a meeting with the BIR on the 5thof December 2013 and it was resolved that the Board should grant the EEDC two weeks from the 5th of December  2013 to enable it to liaise with the Nigeria Electricity Liability Management Company for the payment of the outstanding liability.
 
The EEDC further asked for the 20th January 2014 as the date for the payment of the liability failure which the law will take its course, but, in an apparent display of bad faith, the EEDC went behind to file a suit in the High Court for Stay of Execution Order.
 
The Board of Internal Revenue followed the EEDC to court and it was not until the 2nd of October 2014, when the court rejected the request of EEDC for a stay of execution of the earlier order that BIR moved to enforce the court order, hence the sealing of the EEDC on the 9th of October 2014.
 
The Abia State Government, wishes to state that it has no hand in this obviously legal matter as the BIR is a statutory body with extant responsibilities and rights. We would rather advice the EEDC to act as other responsible corporate citizen and pay its taxes or alternatively act in good faith and approach the BIR for amicable resolution of the issue in the interest of our citizens.
Abia citizens will bear witness that this is not the first time an organization was sealed by the BIR for non remittance of PAYE taxes and this shall not be the last.
 
However, based on solemn promises made by EEDC Board and management His Excellency, Governor T.A. Orji has magnanimously waded in and directed that BIR suspend the sealing of EEDC premises in the state to avoid any hardship such legal tussle may cause Abia citizens and other  residents. The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) is advised to reciprocate this gesture by expeditiously pay-off its outstanding debt with the BIR as promised to avoid further embarrassment.

[ Masterweb Reports ] - Following mixed reactions on the joining of the PDP by the former Governor of Anambra, Mr. Peter Obi, more facts have emerged on what
informed his decision.
 
 
Speaking to journalists during an interactive session with Igbo group  in Lagos State, Obi said  "There is nothing wrong with APGA and my joining the PDP has nothing to do with APGA. I enjoy cordial relationship with  Chief  Willie Obiano and the Government is doing well.   I  will continue to support him in building a better Anambra State  for the good of the children of the State."
 
 
Asked the main reason why he left APGA, he said that it was because of his commitment to be strongly involved in President Jonathan's re-election bid saying: "Mr. President is doing very well. He has a lot of policies in place that will transform the country if re-elected. We shall support him fully for the benefit of the country."
 
 
The delegation was led by Barr. Olisa Metuh, who said that never in the history of the PDP was such a delegation sent to persuade anybody to join the PDP, but that the a South-East leaders had to do it in Obi's case because of his past performance and the value he would  bring to the party.

 
It will be recalled that Governor Olusegun  Mimiko of Ondo State recently joined the PDP saying it was not because of Ondo State or  Labour Party, but that it would offer him the opportunity to support the President more strongly.  Obi who also cited the same reason said that he discussed the matter with  Mimiko  severally.
