We’re unstoppable, Biafra struggle beyond brandishing flags –IPOB

Published

on

Following the presumed failure of the Anambra State election boycott by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the failure of UPP, the victory of Governor Willie Obiano, who had been lampooned to no end by IPOB, not a few persons are of the opinion that the separatist group has been finally shut down.

A few others also believe that the group is intentionally maintaining a low profile while others are convinced that it has severely been degraded, following the last onslaught of Nigeria’s security forces on the group.

But the IPOB, in its usual manner, has dismissed the insinuations as unfounded and largely fallacious. In a chat with our correspondent, the IPOB spokesman, Comrade Emma Powerful said, “It baffles me that our people do not understand the IPOB strategies and the fact that it disturbs the Nigerian Government and her Fulani cabals.

Well I can tell you right away that the insinuations are not true my brother and people may think so because they do not know what we are doing and the stage the struggle is now.

“The struggle has been taken to a whole new level, it is no longer about coming out on the streets and making noise, the level now is all about contact and building international support and capacity.

You must also understand one thing that when Nigerian government labelled IPOB a terrorist organisation, America, UK, France and EU responded immediately to the contrary. You should ask yourself why?”

Powerful further said: “We are coming back in a big way, even you will be stunned by what is coming. You are a journalist, you know what is real and what is unreal real.

“The stage of carrying Biafran flag is over until we have date for Biafra referendum.

We are not stopping the quest for the restoration of Biafra and like we said in the past, no man born of a woman can stop our march to Biafra independence. So much is already happening but they cannot see because we are not using arms.

If we were involved in an armed struggle, I would tell you right away that tomorrow or next week that we are going to conquer somewhere but it is not so because our agitation is non-violent.”

The IPOB spokesman however said that those who think that the Biafran struggle or IPOB is no more are making the mistake of their life, adding that soon they will be shaken back to reality. He boasted that the referendum date for Biafra independence is underway and cannot be aborted or stopped by any force of arm.

    Idiot, who else would I be referring to as “guys” if not Hausa Fulani and Yoruba the unity beggars. We the youths of SE have proven to the world that we can not be toyed with by our elders. Children are the leaders of tomorrow, therefore the elders can not decide our tomorrow for us. We are not illiterate like you guys that do what ever your elders ask you to do without asking questions. Only an idiot still believe in one Nigeria at this stage.

    You seem utterly confused and deranged, just rambling on without making any sense. At this point no one even knows what you’r babbling about. Who are “you guys” and who are “us”? Imagine someone like you that cannot coherently make a point calling some ppl “illiterates and fools” when it is obvious, at least from what you wrote here, that you are the illiterate and fool…..come back when you get out of your drunken stupor…

    The British knew already that you guys are bunch of illiterate and fools, so they forced you guys on us. Unfortunately, the world is now a civilized place where you don’t force people to live together. Its even in the UN charter for self determination. When they ask you people to go to school you will refuse and put bomb in the school. Now you guys don’t understand that self determination is a fundamental right of everybody. Your elders are deceiving you people because of the money they are still sharing in Abuja.

    Progressive, civilized Africans should be more about those small tribes in nations diffusing into a large nation to make for advancement and peace rather than resorting to demands like kids. Even sensible kids know when enough is enough, like how the renegade Nnamdi Kanu bolted to be seen no more. Only if some of these people making noise really know what it took to build Nigeria, they’ll know to let sleeping dogs lie. It’s right for all Igbo minds to become sober towards re-integration into the mainstream Nigeria as steps for United Africa that legendary Kwame Nkrumah of blessed lived for. While failing to focus on emancipation in Africa, we’re losing grounds to China that is fast colonizing with interest-free loans on one side, interest-free loans from the Arab-world on the Jihad trail busy roasting Africans making mince-meats of our people. A word is enough for the wise.

Jonathan warns Buhari against rigging Ekiti poll

Published

on

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has cautioned President Muhammadu Buhari against succumbing to pressure to subjugate democracy by rigging the Ekiti State governorship election, in favour of the All Progressives Congress (APC), stating that such action would haunt him at the end of his tenure.

 

Dr. Jonathan also advised him against bowing to any such pressure to use presidential powers negatively, but urged President Buhari to use his powers to strengthen democracy in Nigeria. The former President, who gave this advice during the inauguration of the first over-head bridge in Ado- Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, warned that President Buhari would be haunted by posterity if he does “because what you go with is the name that you leave behind.”

 

His words: “I don’t believe anybody can defeat the PDP in Ekiti if election is going to be held. I want to advise President Buhari not to deploy power to truncate Ekiti election. Though as a President, you have the power, but don’t do that because of posterity. History will record whatever you do and the power of a leader is determined after leaving office and not when he is in the office.

 

“The will of the people must be allowed to stand at all times, because power belongs to them and we must respect their verdict through the ballots. I am using this opportunity to call on Mr. President. I was there, and

 

I know (that) when you are there, there is so much pressure from everybody to use all the powers you have to subjugate democracy,” he said. He, therefore, called on Buhari not to bow to pressure by attempting to subjugate democracy in Nigeria, as doing that would amount to undermining the country’s path to greatness.

 

Jonathan said that advanced countries of the world today achieved greatness from the selfless sacrifices made by both leaders and followers. Part of the sacrifices, he said, made by their leaders includes not interfering with the democratic process that brings in successive leaders into office.

 

“All the great democracies you are seeing in the world, those great countries were built by people who made sacrifices to make their countries great.” Jonathan also used the opportunity to commend Nigerian youths whom he described as great and hardworking people. Although he admitted that the youths were confronted with challenges, especially not being encouraged with creativity, he called on governments at all levels to encourage them to be hard-working. He further stated: “We have challenges – no power for creativity. With the limits we have, we know the great things you are doing.”

 

The former President expressed optimism that with the level of support by the people, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is a party to beat in the forthcoming election. Jonathan further called on Ekiti people to vote for the PDP in the July 14 governorship polls even as he thanked them for their support to Governor Ayodele Fayose. He commended PDP for choosing youthful governorship candidate and his running mate, adding: “Nigerian youths are not lazy. I don’t believe that, because I have worked with them closely.

They are great people with great potential who should be celebrated by any leader.” In a veiled reference to Buhari’s recent statement abroad, he said “As leaders we must make sure we present a country that will make us proud and not to use our country as a negative example in Africa to the outside world.

 

The idea of portraying Nigerians’ negative manners had occurred on two occasions under this present government. These are mistakes we should not make.” He thanked the people for their support for the PDP since 2015 and urged them to do more in the coming governorship election.

 

“Fayose will never compromise the interest of Ekiti people for anything. He is a leader who speaks truth to power. In fact, Fayose is a leader and he has done well for his people. Any leader who wants to encourage his people must encourage the education of the youth. If you don’t encourage the youths, they will be exploited. “As youths, you have to be aware that we are operating a knowledge-based economy. So you must be proficient in the use of computer. You can’t compromise this if you want to fit into the 21st  century economy,” he said.

Nigeria more transparent under Buhari –Lai Mohammed

Solicits TI’s support on anti-graft war

 

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said Nigeria is more transparent under President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration. The Minister said this to a delegation of Transparent International (TI) led by its Chair, Delia Ferreira Rubio, who visited him in Abuja, saying President Buhari’s  administration is committed to eradicating corruption in the country. “Nigeria has never had a more transparent and more accountable government than the Buhari’s administration,” the Minister said.

 

He regretted that TI and the local civil society organisations affiliated to it have not offered the necessary support to the Federal Government in its anti-corruption war. The Minister, therefore, called on TI to support Buhari’s ant-corruption war, especially in the area of advocacy and capacity building. He noted that when the government disclosed that 55 people stole N1.34 trillion between 2006 and 2013, a section of the civil society alleged that the publication was one-sided, instead of supporting the govern  ment’s action.

 

He tasked TI and its affiliates to show more understanding for the sociological complexities of fighting corruption in Nigeria since the nation operates a federal system of government. The Minister said Nigeria is succeeding in its anti-corruption fight because the fight is led by a President, whose integrity is beyond reproach, noting that his worst critics won’t say he indulges in or encourages corruption.

 

Earlier, Ms Ferreira Rubio had told the minister that her visit to Nigeria, which incidentally was her first in Africa, because the country can set the tone for the continent in the fight against corruption.

 

She added that TI’s mandate is to offer support through civil society organisations and the private sector to foster the fight against corruption. Ms Rubio advised that while the government is doing a lot to fight corruption, it should ensure more transparency and more efficiency in service delivery.

 

“We are not an opposition anywhere in the world. We are just an NGO working in over 100 countries of the world. We are not enemies. We are here to help,” she said.

Woman appeals to IG over missing husband

Published

She should check SARS –PPRO

 

Mrs. Adeshina, wife of a Lagos State politician, Mr. Okokuku Adeshina, has called on the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris (IGP), to warn and caution his officers as not only her husband’s life is in danger but all. Tina, who spoke with journalists over the weekend, said Idris should compel his officers and men to stop being instruments in the hands of politicians who use them to harass their opponents.

 

The distraught woman disclosed how some policemen stormed their house at Ikorodu area of the state on Tuesday evening, and without any search warrant, and whisked her husband away to an unknown destination.

 

According to her, she said her husband called her with an unknown number two days after he was whisked away by the policemen, who wore antirobbery jackets over the mufti clothes, and told her to run far away with the children.

 

She said, her husband told her that it was a political big wig in the state that was behind his present travails in order to win him over to his camp. “My husband called me with an unknown number and said I should take the children to a safe place that the policemen that came to arrest him on the pretence over land dispute are actually working for an opposition politician who wants him to join his party,” she lamented.

 

“Yesterday, an unknown number called me again and I quickly answered thinking it was my husband but the person on the line told me that my husband had escaped.

 

I haven’t been able to get through to him on his phone since the day he was taken away and the man that called claimed to be a policeman that helped him escape, while on their way to the hospital. I believe that my life and those of my children are now also in danger and I don’t want to die,” Mrs. Adeshina cried. However, when contacted, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Chike Oti said, he was not aware of the arrest.

 

Oti, however, said Mrs. Adeshina should go to SARS office to check if her husband is there. It is only when she has done this that he would then know what to do.
