In the newspaper print on Daily Sun, 21st April,2017, page 37, a report was credited to you and according to the said credited to you, you claimed to be the chairman of Awka Council of kingmakers
You said Ozo Awka led by Ozo Obuora Essell is made up of cultists,who are fighting Mr. Gibson Nwosu over his rights to dust to dust rite,as protected by the constitution of Nigeria.

You asserted that Ozo Awka led by Ozo Essell is a secret cult while your own led faction of Ozo Awka is light.

You defended Mr. Gibson Nwosu, claiming that Mr. Gibson Nwosu never violated any code of conduct as alleged by Ozo Akwaled by Ozo Obuora Essell.

Hence, I wish to ask you questions pertaining to above assertions and the little records we have on Mr. Gibson Nwosu's leadership;

(1). That Awka has a code of appointing kingmakers and Ezeuzu cannot appoint anyone into the council of Awka Council of Kingmakers, without clearance from Council of kingmakers, as drafted in 1986, therefore, who made you a member of Awka council of kingmakers,as you claimed or were you made a kingmaker by Mr. Gibson Nwosu/ government because you purportedly registered Ozo ifve with federal government?

(2) In 2015/2016, at Amawbia road by express, Awka youths embarked on protest against what they termed the act of stealing and incessant selling of lands by Mr. Gibson Nwosu and cohorts. In the said protest, one Awka guy was shot dead. But in your defensive statement, you claimed that Mr. Gibson Nwosu never stole/ sold any property belonging to Awka, hence,could you please tell the world what led to the protest that claimed the life of a brother? We also request that as the mouth piece of Mr. Gibson Nwosu, to tell the world what has been the position of Mr. Gibson Nwosu as related to Awka lands sold without the consent of Awka?

THE ANGELUS (12 noon: GMT+1)


In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. 
Amen.

V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary,
R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.
Hail Mary ...

V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
R. Be it done unto me according to Your Word.
Hail Mary ...

V. And the Word was made flesh,
R. And dwelt among us.
Hail Mary ...

V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray:

Pour forth, we beseech You, O Lord, Your Grace into our hearts;
that we, to whom the incarnation of Christ, your Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by His passion and Cross + be brought to the glory of His Resurrection. Through the same Christ, our Lord. Amen

I call on all priests and ministers of the Gospel to rethink the meaning of our life and vocation as priests and ministers. Each person should ask himself why he chose to become a priest or a Gospel minister.

What does God expect of me as a priest? The priest is "alter Christus", another Christ. What this means is that people who encounter me should be able to see the touching presence of Christ in and through me. They should be able to feel Chist's love and compassion, his care and concern. My words should reveal and reflect Christ's message of hope and salvation.

During our retreat, I told the retreatants the story of a young priest (and this is a true story) who, intending to bamboozle his audience with high sounding theological terms, kept repeating to them "As a priest, I am altar Christi." And I said to him what do you mean by that? He replied, you know nah, it means another Christ. I corrected him. He intended to say "alter Christus". But I added, how I wish you meant the one you said, "altar Christi" because that is also a grammatically possible expression in Latin, and it means "altar of Christ". You see being a priest involves sacrifice. The priest should be ready to become the altar upon which the sacrifice of the Christian community will be offered. He should be ready to bear the sacrifice upon himself. 

But what we find is a situation where the priest thinks he is there to enjoy life. The priest craves a life of affluence and excessive wealth.
The priest should take a look at the inaugural message of Christ in Luke 4,16-30 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me. He has sent me to bring good news to the poor. .." The priest who models himself after Christ cannot but take seriously this mission to the poor. But what we find in the Church today is an overall exploitation of the poor masses. Some parish priests cannot begin a Sunday mass and end it without calling for two or more extra collections outside the regular offertory. This is highly unacceptable. I call this "exploitation of the people's faith and devotion."



Presently Nigeria is going through one of the worst economic downturns in its history. Life is at a low ebb. Families can't afford their food daily. Yet they somehow manage to give some to the Church and the priest. We should all be grateful for this. But the greedy priest is not satisfied with this. He must, like Oliver Twist, ask for more, and more and more, until the pockets of the poor are drained. That is exploitation.

The priest should take cognisance of the real life situations of his flock. Part of our duty as priests in these hard times is to help our people to navigate through the difficulties that face them, and we cannot do this if we exploit them financially.

Personal Security: Another Local 419 Scheme!

From the stables of Akuilili K. Akuilili

Another Local 419 Scheme!

!8the April, 2017.

Friends please Beware of sophistication of the the 419 men. I was in a eating house when a man was narrating his story. 

Someone called him on his telephone line and introduced himself as his classmate and that he learnt he was a land agent. 

The conman explained to him that he was as an apprentice in Lagos and had about N4m to be used for purchase of a good land. 
His target confirmed he can help him so they struck a deal. 

The victim suggested he should transfer the money through his bank account but the conman said it was better to be sent through a bus driver and that the cash will be concealed in a refrigerator since his master would discover if the cash was transferred through a bank account. 

The conman warned him to keep off people and that everything must be secret till he returns home in Xmas so they agreed. They then exchanged phone numbers. 
The next day a so called driver called the land agent to be ready to receive a fridge being delivered to him. To expectant land agent the call from the driver was not a surprise. 

Few hours later the driver called him again to request for N150.000 that the custom people had requested for the amount to enable them release the impounded fridge, that the customs at Benin had brought down the fridge and insisted that they'll open it. 

The land agent then tried to call his principal but to no avail. 

That's how the deal knocked because the land agent would not send the money through the account advised by the driver to send the N150.000 for the custom people. 

He said he even tried to borrow the money but was unable to get a lender under such an emergency. 

All other things remain a story 10 days after. 
Can you imagine?

BEWARE: IT IS SNAKE SEASON!
11th February, 2017.

DUE TO THE HEATWAVE AND HIGH TEMPERATURES, SNAKES, ESPECIALLY COBRAS, SEEK REFUGE IN COOLER PLACES LIKE INSIDE HOMES.

SAFETY TIPS

1. Avoid leaving windows open for too long. Cobras and Mambas can reach heights that are very high.
2. Avoid leaving your front doors open for fresh air in the evenings. These reptiles are absolutely STEALTHY (too quiet). You won't hear or see them go inside your house.

AWKA PEOPLE AND POWER

Written by Engr Victor CHINWEZE
Email: vichinweze@gmail.com
7th April, 2017.

Engr. Victor CHINWEZE - Uba Chukwu Ka Mma
One thing that is synonymous with present-day Persons of Awka in power (that is to say, persons in Awka indigenous positions of importance or authority at any level), is this larger than life, ‘my-way’ and authoritarian (…and I ask: where-on-earth-did-that-come-from?) disposition!

This is unequivocal, because children of nowadays no matter how old are no longer schooled in the ways of the land.

These days of modern democracy, freedom of speech and human rights - actually negates our gerontological and societal reality and we are yet to discover the meeting point to herald the new Awka renaissance.

In today’s leadership scale? Fine! Absolute power corrupts absolutely - given the expose to the highest level of privilege, authority and power in the land, which allows them unfettered access to the making and/or unmaking of the rules of engagement, Constitutions and/or working documents or SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures).
The elderly who saw it all or have snippets of the old order, may be right in pointing out that there used to be homegrown, traditional and biding standard, even unwritten control mechanisms that ensured proper checks and balances, but lo! Over-time and till-date, there is a seeming deliberate attempt to desecrate, adulterate and ‘liberalize’ all tenets that singled us out as Ndi-Awka.

So, what do we have?
It runs in the gene! Our progenitors were right in channeling their prowess, skills and energies towards forming the acclaimed stealth Awka society of old. They created these rules, forming the cultures, the traditional norms and value systems.  The gains are enormous – fame, feared, revered, expanse - even the so-called territories called Awka of today, they acquired with tears, blood and war. 


Yet, Awka sons/daughters today are fearlessly and carelessly sabotaging, abusing and desecrating those gains and land mass. Alu na emee!

This day modern generation of Awka people found themselves in a different turf, they are feeling like having grasped what they taught may be the secret of the medieval societal engineering with a view to lampooning it. 

They no longer regard, see or fear any act as abominable, not to talk about the inherent but tortuous burden of absolution from such abominable acts (as was practiced in the era of the sacred Nrri Sanctum) – even to the level of ostracism!
Infact those absolutions were done in order to purge the society and oneself of physically, spiritually and psychologically damnation, going by the medieval standards.

THE AWKA PEOPLE, a book by Amanke Okafor

Oyibo ka mmadi, Ma na Oka kacha mba! (The Whitemen is creative above all men, But the Oka man comes next to him!) --from an Oka war chant (okili) This is the story of the Oka people, the fathers that begat us. It is the story of the Oka people as they were before the British came into their lives and seized control of their country and their destiny, and later merged their city – state with the great body polity known as Nigeria.
