97 Footprints as Justice Abai Ikwechegh joins his ancestors

Footprints of Justce Abai Ikwechegh

Justice Abai Ikwechegh was a pillar of justice and a trailblazer in Eastern Nigeria and Nigeria, in general. He was an honest man to the core, an epitome of integrity, a Christian of the highest order who communed with God until the end of his life.

Through faith and strong belief in God’s guidance he handled legal and other matters that other Justices dared not adjudicate.  If you came to his court with clean hands, you would be set free, but if you were corrupt and came with a bribe to offer, you would be jailed.

As we go through a month long preview until April 5 for the burial of a great Igbere man, a true son of Bende LGA, a man of honor, a Justice of pride for Abia State and Eastern Nigeria who will receive a statesman internment, we encourage all friends and well wishers of Justice Abai Ikwechegh to reach out and send condolences to the family through
Dr. Obi Ikwechegh

HRH Eze Charles Onwukwe Iheke, Nkalu-ukwu 1 of Amankalu Igbere commended in Elizabeth, New Jersey

 


Chief, Rev. Dr. T. Anthony Spearman (Agu-Di-Na-Mba of Amankalu Igbere) and Lolo Janice Spearman were in the City of Elizabeth, New Jersey on Friday, March 20, 2020 to receive honors on behalf of late HRH Eze Charles Onwukwe Iheke, Nkalu-ukwu 1 of Amankalu Igbere, Abia State, Nigeria. Reverend Dr. Anthony Spearman who is President of the NAACP, North Carolina State Conference and a kinsman of the Iheke family was welcomed at Elizabeth City Hall by Hon. Council Woman-At-Large Patricia Perkins-Auguste and members of Committee of Friends For HRH Eze Charles Iheke amongst whom were: Dr. Harris Enabulele, Chief Veronica Anyanwu Iruwa, Mrs. Barbara Miller, Deacon Gordin Nwako, and Fr. Steve Aribe.

About Rev. Dr. T. Anthony Spearman


After finding through DNA analysis that he had Igbo ancestors, he made contact with Past District Governor Lemmy Ijioma of Rotary District 9120 who was able to reconnect him with his ancestral base.
On arrival in Igbere, he was taken to the local stream to have a swim (bath). This is an African tradition that requires that any descendant who had wandered away must be purified by this “bath” before he/she is re-accepted as part of the community. Shortly afterwards he was greeted by the entirety of the Amankalu Igbere Autonomous Community and embraced by Eze Charles Iheke himself.  Dr. Spearman was then made a chief and given the title of Agu Di Na Mba (The lion that is in a foreign land) and immediately inducted as one of the Cabinet Chiefs.

Exit of Professor Amagh Nduka, Africa's foremost Nuclear Scientist


Professor Amagh Nduka, Africa's foremost Nuclear physicists
Photo credit: Igbo Basics 2010 at Owerri Nigeria

Prof Amagh Nduka was born in Amankalu, Igbere, in Bende Local Government Area of Abia State, Nigeria.

Professor Nduka made many outstanding contributions to science. Most profound is his theory: The Absolute Theory of Science. This theory subsumes all other theories in science, including his Third Revolution Theory in Science after the order of Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein (i.e. first and second revolution respectively). This theory, the absolute theory of science, explains (theoretically and mathematically) nuclear physics, atomic physics, boson physics, nuclear fussion, astrophysics and elementary particle physics – areas of physics which its theorization has since the 1920’s remained static. The theory also provides, for the first time ever, explanations to boson and fermio-boson physics – areas which have eluded physicists since the inception of physical enquiry.

He also created an entirely new mathematics called discrete geometry or quantum mathematics, with which arsenal he made yet another striking contribution by giving a formal theoretical calculation of the mass of the neutrino – one of the most controversial in particle physics.

There is no doubt that Professor A. Nduka gave a very interesting and mind-expanding lecture, and if his theories are applied into physics, it means that many of the things in conventional literature will only be for the trashcan. In other words, a total overhaul of science is mandatory. The import of this is that everybody goes back to school! Another interesting thing (if not unfortunate) is that he is the only authority in the world in what he has done. According to him “What we have done puts Nigeria as number one in science, and I am the only authority in the world in it”. This may seem extravagant, but if you go through some of his recent papers, you would see that there is no mention of any black (not African or American) in all his references, and that validates the point that he is indeed a world-authority in his chosen areas.

It is really not surprising that the works and theories of A. Nduka do not ring much bell today. The reason is simple: the overwhelming economic and political clout of the scientists or their disciples whose work he has disproved. Some of these people are Nobel laureates and are dominant in the world’s scheme of things in science. It will certainly require another generation of physicists or scientists that would grow up to apply his theories. But one thing is clear: his works take science a hundred years ahead. According to him, “We are the pioneers of the future, with the aim of constructing a physical theory appropriate to both macroscopic and microscopic phenomena. The elements of our theory are: the intellect, non-classical mathematics (discrete geometry, partition and dimensionality theorems, 4-operators – all invented by us), and experiment”.

There is indeed no doubt that time, just as it did for scientists before him, will vindicate this great Nigerian scientist. We therefore congratulate him on his many contributions, not just in theoretical physics and applied mathematics, but to science in general.
