Olympics Basketball 2012: star-packed USA clashes with Nigeria

The U.S has LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony etc while Nigeria holds some NBA talents including Al-Farouq Aminu of the Hornets. Regardless of the stars all over the American team, no one should under-estimate the resolve of the Nigerian team. A key member of the team Ike Diogu, a former top-10 NBA draft pick cautions that "We will not be intimidated by those guys…. A lot of us went to school in the U.S. and have played against those guys. We have no reason to feel overwhelmed." Unless a basketball miracle occurs, USAfrica analysts say the U.S team holds the advantage for victory. By Chido Nwangwu

Awolowo’s STARVATION Policy against Biafrans and the Igbo requires apology not attacks on Achebe

Some have tried to put the blame on Gowon or the military leaders but Chief Awolowo’s own words are clear: “I decided to stop sending the food there.” It was not a military decision by Adekunle or Murtala. This is a decision made by then Finance minister of the federation, Chief Awolowo. He owned that decision in the interview quoted above. Whenever this issue is raised Awoists and the Awolowo family usually drew umbrage, assailing whoever called Awo out on this issue and generally attacking the character of those who dare to confront Awoists on the frailties of their leaders. It is time for Awoist to realize that Chief Awolowo is not infallible. He made some sound decision in governance as well as other horrendous decisions, one of which is this starvation policy. He might have done it to please the northern oligarchy who had promised to install him as president or he might have had a truly altruistic motive; whatever the case this is a sadistic policy that should never have been put in place by any Nigerian leader. The impact of Chief Awolowo's starvation decision on Biafra’s children still reverberates around the world. It was such that over 40 years later, Steve Jobs referenced it in the interview for his 2011 biography written by Walter Isaacson.
