Nnamdi Kanu And The Igbo Downfall. by mekaboy(m): 2:03pm On Sep 14
WHY NNAMDI KANU MUST BE REJECTED BY IGBOS

A lot of people believe that Nnamdi kanu is fighting for the good of the igbos, and that something good will come out of this fight . But in my view, Kanu is actually directly or indirectly plotting the downfall of igbos. If Ojukwu was alive today, he would have warned him against such action . Below are some of the key reasons that form my opinion about him .

1, Lack of Administrative Ability : Ojukwu was educated and military governor, he knew what administration and coordination was all about. Nnamdi kanu is the opposite, he lacks the administrative ability. Even to run the agitation successfully . Ojukwu who had all this ability failed, is it now kanu banking on a group of touts and jobless youths that will succeed ? Is the Igbo Marginalization also the reason kanu did not achieve anything in Britain ?

2,Kanu is building a Nation on Hatred: Kanu started his crusade on hate speech, which is a very wrong foundation . A nation built on hatred will be destroyed by hate. Hatred becomes the culture of that nation . If they people do not see any external people to hate, they start to hate and destroy themselves. If you eventually get the Biafran Nation, how will you relate with other nations that you have taught your people to hate? Can Biafra survive alone without other ethnic groups ? Hatred is more destructive than productive .


3, Disrespect for elders : Nnamdi Kanu in several occasions have shown total disrespect for elders and OHANAEZE NDIGBO. He might claim they have sold out and do not have interest of the Igbos. But he is a role model to his followers, which means the biafran nation will be one without respect for elders.


4, Destruction of the Igbo economy : It is easier to destroy than to build. It takes a day to bring down a building, but takes months or years to build one. Nnamdi Kanu has never successfully created anything, therefore its easy for him to want to destroy the investment of others. He has never built a successful business or company, which is why he cares less of what happens to the investment of others outside Igbo land .Preaching a message of hate for the North, where a lot of igbos have investments and successful businesses is counter productive .

Even their confrontation with the Nigerian Army in Aba, will result in a state of emergency. It is the igbo businesses that will be affected and not the Northerners. It's easy for him to ask Igbos to leave the north and move down to the east because he has no investment anywhere. He has no investment in UK or Nigeria, so he can easily park his bags and leave UK for Nigeria and move back to UK. He has no investment, company or workers who depend on him for livelihood. So he assumes every igbo person can pack their bags and leave anytime like he does . The Igbos have come a long way, after the war, we lost our money in the banks and were given just 20 pounds, today we have risen to enviable heights . Kanu wants to set igbos back economically . When an Igbo man loses his investment outside Igbo land, the igbo economy is being negatively affected. Someone without an investment won't understand it .


5,Political Setback : Kanu does not understand that there is nothing he can achieve in Nigeria without the politicians and the constitution . Asking his followers not to participate in elections, burn their voters card etc, will negatively affect Igbo's politically . even the referendum they seek, will still need voters card to be conducted . By 2019, the population of igbo voters will be reduced, those who have cards will not vote, and Igbo's will be sidelined once again . This is aimed at destabilizing igbos politically, and will have negative consequences in the long run .


6,Victim Mentality : Nnamdi Kanu has never distinguished himself in any area in life. He has not built a successful carrier or business, therefore unfit to be a role model for igbo youths . Alot of prominent sucesful igbo people have become something from Nothing . The hausas and yorubas, you will always trace the source of their wealth to family . But for igbos, most of the wealthy made it without help . Now the stories of people like innoson, coscharis and alot of other igbo business men should be the motivation for upcoming igbo youths. Rather Nnamdi kanu is making them lazy, believing that someone in the north is the reason for their failure and they can't succeed in Nigeria unless Biafra comes. Fine, igbos are marginalized , but that should be a challenge for the igbos to work hard to succeed in every area they choose. Since we do not have the level of support or advantage of the North and SW who continued to enjoy Nigeria and occupy positions during and after the civil war, igbo youths should not engage in idleness.

There is no time to waste sitting around, pointing fingers at the North . The stories of the successful igbo sons and daughters should be a motivation and not the victim mentality preached by kanu . The new breed of igbos kanu is raising are not the hardworking "go getter" type. But those who will sit idle, not improve on their lives, waiting for biafra to come before the succeed . that is not the message we need in Igbo land. Its only someone like Kanu who did not achieve anything in Nigeria and even in UK with lots of opportunities , that can be preaching such a message laziness and blame games.

7,Wasting Igbo lives : The greatest investment anyone can make is in human beings . Those countries we called developed today, did not become developed because of natural resources. They became developed because they invested in people. Today igbo youths are dying for something that will not happen . Igbos are losing potentials that would have been harnessed to be more productive .

8, Inconsistency : Kanu is not consistent, he is a politician. He is looking for a reward in all this and will eventually sell to the highest bidder. The same kanu that preached hate for the yorubas, asked igbos not to attend yoruba churches, began to dine and wine with FFK and Fayose. Saying the Yoruba's have changed. What exactly changed ?

He spoke with so much hate about the hausas, and later said he does not hate them, he loves yaraudua etc. So if he loved yaradua and hates buhari, then why preach hatred against the entire north. Why not tell igbos buhari is their enemy and not the north ? If he loves yaradua and hates buhari, then his agitation is political and against buhari as a person . With this level of inconsistency, its clear it won't be hard for him to change his stand when he gets the right offer .

My advice to Igbo Youths, most positions in cooperate organizations and government are occupied by the north and the SW because of the civil war. We have managed to catch-up without government support. Dont sit idle and listen to Kanus hate message and victim mentality. Work hard legitimately, if you can't afford university education, find a skill and master it immediately . Invest in your future, read, learn and work hard, the sky will be your starting point.

Victim mentality is the bane of you people, when Jonathan was in government, ibos occupy most strategic positions. For those 5 years, nobody heard your hymns about how civil war and 20 pounds set you back. Your politicians were busy doing the EXACT SAME THING you accused others of (corrupt practices). Just now that you're in opposition, you can't even survive a day without going on an emotional banter.
Yes, you are victims, never the culprits. Such a pity for Nigeria's insecured and orphan ethnic group.

It is your right not to wish to be in the Nigerian union, just as it is the right of Nigeria to have a say. No country in the world simply splits up because some citizens decide to be unruly miscreants and crude touts provoking, insulting and inciting hatred. Not even countries that are 100 times more civilized than Nigeria.

7,Wasting Igbo lives : The greatest investment anyone can make is in human beings . Those countries we called developed today, did not become developed because of natural resources. They became developed because they invested in people. Today igbo youths are dying for something that will not happen . Igbos are losing potentials that would have been harnessed to be more productive .

8, Inconsistency : Kanu is not consistent, he is a politician. He is looking for a reward in all this and will eventually sell to the highest bidder. The same kanu that preached hate for the yorubas, asked igbos not to attend yoruba churches, began to dine and wine with FFK and Fayose. Saying the Yoruba's have changed. What exactly changed ?

He spoke with so much hate about the hausas, and later said he does not hate them, he loves yaraudua etc. So if he loved yaradua and hates buhari, then why preach hatred against the entire north. Why not tell igbos buhari is their enemy and not the north ? If he loves yaradua and hates buhari, then his agitation is political and against buhari as a person . With this level of inconsistency, its clear it won't be hard for him to change his stand when he gets the right offer .

My advice to Igbo Youths, most positions in cooperate organizations and government are occupied by the north and the SW because of the civil war. We have managed to catch-up without government support. Dont sit idle and listen to Kanus hate message and victim mentality. Work hard legitimately, if you can't afford university education, find a skill and master it immediately . Invest in your future, read, learn and work hard, the sky will be your starting point.

Spot on u r cerebral

Kanu is a failure in his life can u imagine a man of his age still living in his father's house. Igbo youths shld embrace their entrepreneurship and make something out of their lives. Igbos are economically ahead of any tribe in Nigeria when looked at wholistically we are not lazy n begging is outlawed.

FG is stupid too y molest innocent ppl when he can arrest kanu and lock forever so than peace can reign

WHY NNAMDI KANU MUST BE REJECTED BY IGBOS

A lot of people believe that Nnamdi kanu is fighting for the good of the igbos, and that something good will come out of this fight . But in my view, Kanu is actually directly or indirectly plotting the downfall of igbos. If Ojukwu was alive today, he would have warned him against such action . Below are some of the key reasons that form my opinion about him .

1, Lack of Administrative Ability : Ojukwu was educated and military governor, he knew what administration and coordination was all about. Nnamdi kanu is the opposite, he lacks the administrative ability. Even to run the agitation successfully . Ojukwu who had all this ability failed, is it now kanu banking on a group of touts and jobless youths that will succeed ? Is the Igbo Marginalization also the reason kanu did not achieve anything in Britain ?

2,Kanu is building a Nation on Hatred: Kanu started his crusade on hate speech, which is a very wrong foundation . A nation built on hatred will be destroyed by hate. Hatred becomes the culture of that nation . If they people do not see any external people to hate, they start to hate and destroy themselves. If you eventually get the Biafran Nation, how will you relate with other nations that you have taught your people to hate? Can Biafra survive alone without other ethnic groups ? Hatred is more destructive than productive .


3, Disrespect for elders : Nnamdi Kanu in several occasions have shown total disrespect for elders and OHANAEZE NDIGBO. He might claim they have sold out and do not have interest of the Igbos. But he is a role model to his followers, which means the biafran nation will be one without respect for elders.


4, Destruction of the Igbo economy : It is easier to destroy than to build. It takes a day to bring down a building, but takes months or years to build one. Nnamdi Kanu has never successfully created anything, therefore its easy for him to want to destroy the investment of others. He has never built a successful business or company, which is why he cares less of what happens to the investment of others outside Igbo land .Preaching a message of hate for the North, where a lot of igbos have investments and successful businesses is counter productive .

Even their confrontation with the Nigerian Army in Aba, will result in a state of emergency. It is the igbo businesses that will be affected and not the Northerners. It's easy for him to ask Igbos to leave the north and move down to the east because he has no investment anywhere. He has no investment in UK or Nigeria, so he can easily park his bags and leave UK for Nigeria and move back to UK. He has no investment, company or workers who depend on him for livelihood. So he assumes every igbo person can pack their bags and leave anytime like he does . The Igbos have come a long way, after the war, we lost our money in the banks and were given just 20 pounds, today we have risen to enviable heights . Kanu wants to set igbos back economically . When an Igbo man loses his investment outside Igbo land, the igbo economy is being negatively affected. Someone without an investment won't understand it .


5,Political Setback : Kanu does not understand that there is nothing he can achieve in Nigeria without the politicians and the constitution . Asking his followers not to participate in elections, burn their voters card etc, will negatively affect Igbo's politically . even the referendum they seek, will still need voters card to be conducted . By 2019, the population of igbo voters will be reduced, those who have cards will not vote, and Igbo's will be sidelined once again . This is aimed at destabilizing igbos politically, and will have negative consequences in the long run .


6,Victim Mentality : Nnamdi Kanu has never distinguished himself in any area in life. He has not built a successful carrier or business, therefore unfit to be a role model for igbo youths . Alot of prominent sucesful igbo people have become something from Nothing . The hausas and yorubas, you will always trace the source of their wealth to family . But for igbos, most of the wealthy made it without help . Now the stories of people like innoson, coscharis and alot of other igbo business men should be the motivation for upcoming igbo youths. Rather Nnamdi kanu is making them lazy, believing that someone in the north is the reason for their failure and they can't succeed in Nigeria unless Biafra comes. Fine, igbos are marginalized , but that should be a challenge for the igbos to work hard to succeed in every area they choose. Since we do not have the level of support or advantage of the North and SW who continued to enjoy Nigeria and occupy positions during and after the civil war, igbo youths should not engage in idleness.

There is no time to waste sitting around, pointing fingers at the North . The stories of the successful igbo sons and daughters should be a motivation and not the victim mentality preached by kanu .

If those beasts of the southeast I watched are actually a good fraction of the Igbo youth, then I see no reason why we shouldn't support the Biafra movement to actualize as soon as possible.

Their action is not driven mainly by hatred of the Hausas or for their aim towards a nationhood, for they do not look like the creatures capable of thinking that there's something as important as a "Future."

Theirs is a manifestation of crude home training and excessive overflow of misguided testosterone that confluenced with so many years ignorance and mental collapse.

Perhaps when all our Hausa people packed back home, and when they eventually attained the Biafran State, those same insane guys will start looking for where to utilize their doom, for a testosterone that was not nurtured to do good right from the beginning wouldn't fail to find excuses to survive.

Indeed we should all be sad that our innocent Hausa people are being brutalized like that, but we should also be angry, very angry, that we share a political territory with a category of people who in sane circumstances would have been caged in a highly secured psychiatric hospital.

The people here in the North who thought we were wrong when we voiced how uncomfortable we were with the ultimatum our northern youth once gave to the Igbo people residing in our states should now realise that cowardice and good upbringing are sharply two different things!

Dear brothers,

I do not care about Nigeria, they never cared for me or my family. I do not care about biafra, because it is not yet a reality. But I care about my igbo brothers and sisters because they are the only ones I have and will always live with.

Common brothers, we are young and we have many years to live in this world, should we destroy the little we have gathered because we are marginalised? should we achieve the utopian biafra after the death of another 3million people? I am not saying ipob or other groups looking for the actualisation of biafra are looking for war but we all should know that all actions have consequences, good or bad.

Igboland size might be fixed but the size of the economy isn't. We can start by building from the ruins of 1967 and have a stronger union with ourselves than fighting the people that will always kill us. How do you plan to get it? through the united nations? Have you read the united nation policy when it comes to africa and west africa in particular? I believe your answer is no, because there is none. No one cares about us except us and if we keep giving ourselves as willing sacrifice to these guys, who are we going to leave this earth for? The same elites. You should not die for anyone, even Nnamdi kanu himself, but we should live for our children and loved ones.

By living, I need us to start picking the pieces and start building with everything we have. We should as a matter of fact start creating an enabling environment for our children in the east.
