[ 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.

Ambassador Bianca Olivia Odumegwu Ojukwu is like the Northern star whose light remains constant from her position in the firmament. Bianca’s star and winning streaks continues to follow her wherever she goes. Initially her appointment as a non-career Diplomat was received with mixed feelings in some certain quarters.

[ Masterweb Reports ] - A 23-year-old Nigerian American man, Dominic Adesanya who calls himself 'American Slave', on Wednesday around 7:15 pm jumped the White House fence and made it onto the North Lawn before being subdued. Adesanya, , stood on the North Lawn gesturing and lifting his shirt before being taken down by K-9 units (law enforcement officers partnered with a highly-trained dogs) and subdued by the Secret Service. On the lawn, Adesanya kicked a K-9 dog that ran towards him before being wrestled to the ground by another one and was taken into custody. The intruder was taken to a hospital with injuries for treatment and evaluation, an Obama administration official told reporters.
 
 
“Dogs got him”, a U.S. Secret Service spokesman told newsmen after the incident. The White House was put on lockdown for one and half hour but was not evacuated. Adesanya was unarmed during his invasion of White House, two K-9 dogs were taken to a veterinarian for injuries sustained during their encounter with him.
 
 
It was not clear whether President Obama and/or his family were in the building during the incident. Adesanya’s father said his son had been arrested at the White House before in a bid to talk to Obama on how people were out to get him. He said the family tried to get him help after the incident.
 
 
Adesanya's last post on Instagram on Tuesday showed an I Voted sticker captioned 'Voted for this B #ImpeachObama.' On a LinkedIn page, in place of a job title he described himself as an 'American Slave' and rants about the Rothschild banking family.
 
 
The latest incident comes a month after Omar Gonzalez, a 42-year-old Iraq war veteran carrying a pocketknife jumped White House fence and ran across the North Lawn, through an unlocked White House door and into multiple rooms before being arrested. He faces six counts, including two federal charges of assaulting officers. A preliminary evaluation found him "presently not competent" to stand trial.
 
 
Gonzalez’s  September 19 breach was part of a string of embarrassments for the Secret Service that led to the resignation of the agency's director, Julia A. Pierson. The incident prompted a review of the security measures at the White House.

[ Masterweb Reports: Godwin Ikechukwu reports ] - An email sensationally claiming to be from Abubakar Shekau, the supposedly deceased leader of the extremist Islamic sect Boko Haram, has been circulated within Nigeria.
 
 
The email, which this writer saw on various online forums, contains several startling allegations, centering on the claim that the Goodluck Jonathan administration founded and funded an ‘alternative Boko Haram’ group which was responsible for perpetrating several atrocities aimed at achieving Jonathan’s political aims of re-election come 2015.
 
 
“I, Imam Abubakar Shekau, by the powers and rights vested upon me by God, the Almighty Allah, as the Head of Mission and the Undisputed Leader of ‘Jaama’atu Ahlus-Sunnah Lidda’ Awati Wal Jinad (Boko Haram)’ do solemnly make this truthful, most honest and utmost accurate presentation, application and the transmission on the above subject matter, believing all of its contents to be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth,” the long email began.
 
 
The message continues by alleging Nigeria’s ruling PDP administration offered financial support to Boko Haram following the murder of its founder Mohammed Yusuf in 2009. The offer purportedly came through Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Chief Anthony A. Anenih and current Vice President Namadi Sambo.
 
 
Thereafter, “we received large supplies of weapons, ammunition, provision and funding indirectly from President Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party of Nigeria (PDP) through foreign and domestic agents,” the email then asserts.
 
 
‘Shekau’ goes further to claim Jonathan organised another group of thugs acting under the name of ‘Boko Haram’ to perpetrate several atrocities, including the kidnap of the 276 Chibok girls and the attempted assassination of APC presidential aspirant Muhammadu Buhari.
 
 
The message then shockingly claims the ‘alternative Boko Haram’ group were behind the controversial collapse of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) building last month that killed over 100, including 80 South Africans.
 
 
“A day before the incident, the agents of President Goodluck Jonathan’s alternative Boko Haram had fused and pasted the latest type of “Plastic Bombs” on strategic parts of the building. The signal for detonation was only given when a strange unmarked aircraft piloted by one of his Air Force Officers had circled the building three times,” the message specified.
 
 
According to ‘Shekau’, the choice of Synagogue as a target was based on Τ.Β. Joshua’s political clout as ‘many prominent APC members rely on The Synagogue for special prayers and holy water that will help them defeat President Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP in 2015.’
 
 
The email was addressed to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands, reporting ‘persons in Nigeria that have committed gross human rights violations, genocide and crimes against humanity’.
 
 
The majority of online commentators who discussed the email have questioned its authenticity, alleging it has a political agenda and is the handiwork of APC fanatics attempting to stain the name of Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan.

[ Masterweb Reports: Dr. James Chukwuma Agazie reports ] - Free at last! Free at last! Northern Nigeria is about to experience freedom at last if the news is true that Boko haram is laying down weapons. May God of Ndiigbo be praised and spirits of deceased Christian crusaders be given the highest commendation.
 
Those Igbo teachers and traders didn’t die in vain in Northern Nigeria. They were at the forefront of the struggle to educate and free Northern tribes from ignorance and the oligarchic education-is-banza  clutches of Muslim sharia-type domination. Northern leaders refused to provide education for the masses; siphoned funds earmarked for education to Saudi Arabia; and effectively pushed the country into membership of Islamic League of Nations (work of Babangida and Buhari) . The North died painfully. Igbos refused to let the die be cast.
 
If you doubt it; check history and beginnings of Western education in Nigeria. Check annals of various Ministries of Education. Igbos were there being pilloried; castigated; dehumanized with the infamous Northernization Policy orchestrated by Premier Ahmadu Belo and Prime Minister Balewa. Those Igbos built primary and secondary  schools ( CMS; Methodist; Catholic) to educate all Nigerian children whose parents cared to come.
 
We were there. We were the headmasters; teachers; catechists; preachers. Name it; and we were there in the trenches along with a few Europeans (Sudan United mission; Sudan Interior Mission at Gindiri; Keffi; Gboko).
 
While Igbo and Yoruba kids came to learn; Muslims kept their children away. Muslims wasted trillions of shillings. A few Northern children whose parents heard the call of Chineke (the true Allah) came to schools and you’ll find them as the elites of modern Northern Nigeria as Vice Chancelors; physicians; lawyers; bakers; and petty traders; at Jos; Bukuru; Makurdi; Kafanchan; Kwarra State; Igumale; Oturkpo; Utonkon; Egwugwuewu; Adoka; Igalla. Oh; my God.
 
Oh; my God! Oh; my God! We were there. I cannot continue . I’m in tears. But we were just there.

[ Masterweb Reports: Ihechukwu Njoku reports ] - A picture of controversial Pastor T.B. Joshua carrying three bags of rice went viral this week within Nigerian social media and blogs. While most commended Joshua for his humility and humanity, there were suggestions that the picture was ‘photo-shopped’. Others insinuated the image was nothing but a tasteless publicity stunt in the light of the recent tragedy that befell The SCOAN where over 100 died in a building collapse.
 

As a viewer of Emmanuel TV, I have actually seen the video clip of this particular humanitarian mission previously and managed to find the footage on YouTube.  For clarification, this did not take place after the tragedy last month, putting to rest the allegation that this was an ill-timed publicity feat. So, for all the doubters and skeptics, here is video evidence of Pastor T.B. Joshua carrying three bags of rice in one of his numerous philanthropic visits to less-privileged areas.
