2015: Politicians stunned as CNN turns down political ads

Dimgba Igwe

As the 2015 general election advances, plan by Nigerian politicians to lavish finances on publicity in foreign media has hit the brick wall as the CNN is reported to be rejecting political advertisements.

It was gathered that several politicians are stupefied by the new reality that the American international cable channel, has resolved to be rejecting commercials with political messages. (Sunnews Online)

Moghalu Exits Central Bank of Nigeria

Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Kingsley Chiedu Moghalu has announced that he was leaving the bank for higher endeavours after completion of a five year term.

Moghalu in a statement said he was in charge of financial stability in the apex bank and saw his tour of duty at the bank as  a great opportunity to serve the country.
“I would like to let you know that I will be moving on to other endeavours.

Dimgba Igwe

The recent statement credited to the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Gary Enwo-Agariwey in most Nigerian newspapers published on Monday September 15, 2014, stating in clear terms that Ohanaeze Ndigbo is not interested in the participation of Ndigbo to produce the President of Nigeria in the 2015 presidential election is heart-rending and the “unkindest cut of all.”

In my 38 years active involvement in Igbo rights crusade, no Igbo leader occupying the exalted office of President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo has gone this far in betraying the Igbo people. I was a very young member of the Igbo Forum as an undergraduate in 1976 when it was formed. The Forum had Dr. Akanu Ibiam as Chairman, Justice Daddy Onyeama as Vice Chairman, Chief Jerome Udoji as Secretary and Mr. Jacob Ukeje Agwu (my Uncle and Guardian) as Assistant Secretary.

Etsakor USA Inc. celebrated their 20th Anniversary at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Elizabeth, NJ on August 9, 2014.  In line with their theme, “Reflecting on Our Past and Building for Future Generations,” the community honored and acknowledged several members for their great contributions to the community.
Adamu S. Braimah, Sr., president of the organization invited and welcomed the community to an evening of celebration.  

Mike Oshiokpekhai introduced Steve Umoru, the Master of Ceremonies for the night.  Collins Ijoma, having been instrumental and active in helping minorities and members of the Nigerian community and the Estakor community at large to get jobs, was celebrated for that contribution among many others.
Etsakor Association was first conceived in late 1991 with the intention of forming a unified body of Etsakor people in Nigeria and the United States, to create a platform for dialogue and advance social-economic development.  The association has several programs and benefits in place to assist members and their families, and other Etsakor people in the United States and Nigeria.

Mike Powel at work

Most grocery store shoppers take for granted how their products get to the store shelves, but the store clerks who stock the shelves are the ones who make that happen.  Michael Powell has worked for 43 years in grocery stores and has seen a lot of changes in the business over time.  He started out as a part-time store clerk at FoodTown (MayFair Super Markets) where he was promoted to the position of night crew chief and worked as such for 17 years until FoodTown was purchased by Royal Ahold and became Edwards Supermarkets.  Subsequently Edwards became Stop n Shop where Powell remains as a night crew clerk going on 44 years.  It is not easy for one to last over 40 years in any industry these days as businesses merge and evolve.  Congratulations to Mr. Powell for his longstanding service to his community.   He is married with children and appreciates the stability that his career has afforded him and his family.

Full Faith and Confidence of the Government

Last September, I traveled from the US to join the rest of my family for the funeral of my uncle.  As such, it was not a pleasure trip but one that was planned in haste and filled with emotion.  It is a time in one’s life where support from friends and a lessening of stress is the order or preference.  I was glad, or so I thought, that I did not have to worry about running to the Nigerian Embassy to renew my passport.  I concentrated on packing my suitcase, making sure I packed appropriately and within airline guidelines, checked that I had all appropriate travel documents and adequate funds, considered what I might take for relatives I would meet and began to consider my emotional and spiritual state, given the journey ahead (more)

Giving back to the Item community

The Igbo people of Nigeria strongly believe in philanthropic activities like giving back to the community.
Dr. Godwin Onyeike a Gynecologist in New York is certainly no exception. Dr. Onyeike who hails from Apanu, Item in Bende Local Government Area of Abia State Nigeria is a physician of note based in NY City USA.  Onyeike is the CEO of LaFemme Medical PC and active participant in the Nigerian and Igbo community activities.

In accordance with the Igbo tradition of “Aku ruo ulo”  Onyeike, in memory of his late father, a few years ago promised to build an Obi (town hall) for the people of Apanu Item.  That promise is now fulfilled as the building was recently launched as part of his age grade outing highlights at Apanu Item.
This July 18 and 19, the Item community in the United States holds its annual convention in New York where prominent Item people and other dignitaries including government functionaries from Abia State Nigeria will grace the occasion.  An intercontinental program at the event will feature the famous Bende War Dance and other cultural displays.

Some prominent citizens of Item in recent times includes Chief Ugorji Eke, James Iroha aka Grengory Akabuogu, Chief J.O. Irukwu  SAN (Mr. Insurance and arguably one of the most educated Igbo men in his field) Chief Robert Udeagha. (click for more)
