“If we let Nigeria keep degenerating, Rwanda is going to be better” African Director for Genocide Prevention, Dr Onyemaechi Ogunwezeh warns about the future of Nigeria (video)



Dr Onyemaechi Ogbunwezeh, the African Director For Genocide Prevention at the Christian Solidarity International (CSI) Switzerland has warned that Nigeria needs to make a U-turn, else the Rwandan Genocide will be child’s play compared to the future of Nigeria.


He said that all parties involved must sit and dialogue as soon as possible so that aggrieved citizens can speak their minds and solutions will be presented.


He told LITV: “I am afraid. The indices that I am seeing doesn’t speak so wonderfully well for Nigeria.


“Nigeria is a genocide waiting to happen,” he added.


Forecasting the nation’s future, he said: “It’s boiling everywhere and if we let this degenerate the way it’s degenerating, Rwanda is going to be better. It’s going to be like the antics of spoilt kids in comparison to what is going to happen to this country.


“It is in our best interest that everybody rise to the occasion…”


On what can be done to prevent further violence, Dr Ogunwezeh insisted a national dialogue cannot be avoided. He added that dialogue will allow Nigerians decide if they want to stay together as a nation or go their separate ways.


He explained: “This is what a national dialogue could solve. This is what a national dialogue could avail Nigerians the opportunity for them to decide. It’s a democracy. People want to decide for themselves, we should let them do that. Self-determination is a fundamental human right.



“It’s pretty urgent that we start this dialogue immediately. We don’t have time. We may have crossed the rubicon. It may have been late in the day for this dialogue. This is what we should have done earlier than now. But I am afraid it may be late.”


He further stated, “The reasonable thing that the reasonable man should do is to say, why should I kill my brother first before dialoguing.”


Asked if negotiating with bandits is a viable option to curb banditry, he highlighted the popular American saying “we don’t negotiate with terrorists”, adding “Once a state makes that move of negotiating with terrorists, it leads to state failure. Which means you’ve surrendered your sovereignty to a bunch of ragtag riffraffs. They are the ones determining how you run your country.


“But, for me, because lives are on the line, I will keep all options on the table. I understand how difficult it is to face insecurity in a country like Nigeria.”

Vandalism throws over 50 Enugu, Ebonyi communities into darkness



Over 50 communities in Enugu State have been thrown into darkness following the vandalism of Amechi – Awgu 33KV mainline, property of the Enugu Electricity Distribution PLC (EEDC), which supplies electricity to the affected communities.

The vandalism, which occurred at Nenwe Junction down to the World University in Aninri Local Government Area, involved the removal of about 40 spans of aluminum conductors on the line as well as the collapse and damage of 15 High Tension poles.

This development was made known in Enugu on Thursday by the Head, Corporate Communications, EEDC, Emeka Ezeh.

Ezeh stated that this part of the network has been under attack by vandals since January this year, and the present incident reoccurred barely two weeks after the company had spent millions of Naira in replacing the vandalized items.

“This portion of the network was attacked in January, February, and twice in April, which has led to the present darkness experienced by electricity customers in these affected communities, as about 130 distribution substations (transformers) are affected and cannot supply electricity to customers,” he said.

According to EEDC’s spokesman, the entire communities in Aninri Local Government Area, over 50% of the communities in Awgu Local Government Area and Akaeze and Ishiagu under Ivo Local Government Area of Ebonyi Atate were affected by this ugly incident.

Some of the affected communities include Mgbowo, Ugwuleshi Awgu, Ogwuofia Awgu, Obodo Asaa Awgu, Ogwumabiri Awgu, Obeagu, Nmaku, Mgbidi, Ihe, Okpanku, Mpu, to mention but a few.


“As a business, we are concerned about the inconveniences our customers in the affected communities are subjected to, its effect on their various businesses and the revenue losses we are recording as a service provider,” Ezeh added.

“Vandalism of power installations within the EEDC’s network has remained a cog in the wheel of progress. No day passes without an incident of vandalism in one or two locations within the network.

“Transformer vandalism is more rampant, but these days, we have cases where some spans of the network are vandalized, keeping hundreds of thousands of customers in darkness,” he stated.

Ezeh appealed to all electricity customers and the public, especially neighbourhood vigilantes to help in safeguarding the power installations serving them.

FA Cup: Tuchel defends decision on Tammy Abraham in Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat to Leicester



Thomas Tuchel has explained why Tammy Abraham was not considered in his squad for the FA Cup final against Leicester City on Saturday.

The German tactician insisted it was a difficult decision for him to leave Abraham out of the team.

Abraham featured prominently for Chelsea under Frank Lampard before the coming of Tuchel in January.

But the England striker has fallen dramatically down the pecking order despite being the club’s top goalscorer this season.

The 23-year-old scored his first senior hat-trick in the fourth round of the FA Cup against Luton, which was Lampard’s final game at the helm.

Tuchel left the striker out of the team for the final on Saturday opting to start with Timo Werner up front.


He brought on Olivier Giroud during the closing stages as Chelsea tried, but ultimately failed, to find an equalising goal.

Asked after the game if Abraham simply wasn’t a player for him, Tuchel told Stadium Astro: “No, it’s just hard decisions on a matchday when you can only nominate 18 players.”
