You accuse me of quoting Yoruba's, but I've also quoted Igbo's too. You just reject anything that doesn't fit into your prepared position.
Listen bro, the war is over and propaganda is now useless. It is time to move on and to build.
Resistance movements form against invading forces. The Midwest should never have been invaded, especially as it was friendly to Biafra.
Even worse is the fact that just a few days prior to the invasion, both the Midwest and West had held a meeting with Ojukwu in Enugu, assuring him of their friendship and making it clear that they would dissolve Nigeria if a single Igbo life was taken at any meeting to resolve the crisis.
At the meeting, Ojukwu himself admited to having had several discussions with Chief Mariere from the Midwest:
Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu: I will not go into the details. I have discussed this matter with Chief Mariere on several occasions, indeed one night we discussed it at the Niger Bridge.(text in red - mine)
After that meeting, came the invasion of the Midwest and movement toward Lagos, a move that shocked both the Midwest and the Western Region.
I sincerely believe that Ojukwu made a grave mistake. In any crisis, you need your friends; it is painful that so many lives were lost.

This is where you got it wrong. We stopped shooting at each other (temporarily) but it is not over and we are never going to build anything together.
Why? Because the igbos hate Nigeria and everything it represents.
As early as 1967/68, the federal troops have captured most importants biafran cities including capital enugu, nsukka, port harcourt, onitsha etc. By end of 1968 biafran controlled territory has been reduced to a few hundred square miles. Our children were dying of hunger and diseases. Egyptian planes were bombing us. Yet we continued fighting. . Bigger nations have capitulated in front of lesser adversity. If that doesn't tell you the determination of the igbos not to ruled by you people, you then are a big fool.
We are not moving on to build with you. We don't want anything with you. We want out. We want to be on our own. Is that too much to ask for?

You are speaking only for yourself, looking for enemies in your own reflection, fighting the wind and giving yourself health problems.
I see you employed your usual escape route of resorting to emotions when faced with unshakable fact. The last person I quoted was Ojukwu himself.
There were meetings that pledged the friendship of the Midwest, indeed Ojukwu mentions having discussed the matter several times with Mariere, even once at the Niger Bridge (makes you wonder if it wasn't two friends talking over a couple of beers). My brother, you don't throw your friends under the bus and suddenly invade them.
Please, stick to the topic, silly theatrics do not win arguments; "the war is over and propaganda is now useless."

I agree with Beaf on this one, the war which you lost, ended over 40years ago. You are in the minority buddy.
My people talk say, "Ga fili ga doki, ina mai hauwa" (see field, see horse, wey de person wey go ride am). Enough of your useless internet warriorship, go and lead your people and declare your new nation na. See if your very own people will not lynch you themselves. olodo

Abeg, make sure you never agree with me again, or use my words to forward your wicked position.
It is time for new beginnings and for building afresh, but people like yourself and Logic Mind will only be onlookers/outsiders.
I'm am all for SE/SS synergies and I really don't see how your position is of any use to us.

we are pretending to be one country because of oil. only one tribe was not hypocritical enough to declare independence: mine
your continued a colonial legacy of slavery.
but your one nigeria is disintegrating right before your very eyes.
and as long as i stay in this forced union with a nama like you, you will have to endure my insults and i will always be better than you.
|Re: Will Nigeria Break Up By 2015? by Logic Mind: 5:29pm On May 29, 2012|
you are right, i get quite emotional when i think of what my people went through for my freedom. and i swear on the head of my ancestors that it will not be in vain.
however you still dance around the bush and dodge questions. it is thus very difficult to have a meaningful discussion with you.
|Re: Will Nigeria Break Up By 2015? by Beaf: 7:25pm On May 29, 2012|
Lol! See who is talking about dodging questions! Even when if I quote Ojukwu, you guys would say its a lie because it doesn't fit into the wartime propaganda you have come to believe as fact. Imagine the way Dede sneered at Mariere! I have since revealed by Ojukwu's own words that he and Mariere had several discussions on Biafra, even informally at the Niger Bridge. Mariere's closeness to Ojukwu reflected the sympathy for Biafra from the Midwest. Anyway, make una carry go!
The good thing I have noticed is that your position, as well as ACM10's, has begun shifting ever so slightly. Thats a good thing; one day soon, you will be able to accept the fact of Biafran atrocities in the Midwest. Right now, I can accept that the response of the Midwest to their maltreatment was evil too; the way Igbo's were pointed out to the federal troops was despicable and condemnable. I feel free enough to admit these things, lets pray that you too will find the courage and strength to release your soul one day. Truth is brutal, but it cannot be hidden.
|Re: Will Nigeria Break Up By 2015? by Logic Mind: 8:26pm On May 29, 2012|
If it were true, it would be a good thing and I would never describe it as despicable and condemnable. The only regrets that I have is that they are not true. Believe me, it is also in my interest that these "atrocities" be proven because the thought of your kinsmen dying in agony from biafran bullets will make me sleep soundly.
|Re: Will Nigeria Break Up By 2015? by Beaf: 11:45am On May 30, 2012|
Well, more than enough proof has been provided from both sides in the conflict, so you can "sleep soundly."

the thoughts of igbos eating lizards during d biafra war should make u think twice about propagating biafra again

my people did what they had to do. what have your people done apart from licking aboki nyash?
|Re: Will Nigeria Break Up By 2015? by Ileke-IdI: 5:34am On May 31, 2012|
How long ago was that? The same Igbo people who have been reduced to boy boy for aboki man?
i.e Atiku and his boy toy.

REALLY DUDE,BIAFRANS OR IGBOS OR WATEVA THEY CALL THEMSELVES?
bbpreye: Biafrans or igbos or wateva they call themselves, I thought they claimed to av migrated from isreal, they should pls migrate back, I love my igbo folks so much n can't say one harsh word about them,, but sincerely if Nigeria will eventually break up, it'll be BIAFRA, NIGERDELTA REPUBLIC and NORTHERN NIGERIA. Since these haters can't stop envying the money pot of their nation. U need to come down to d nigerdelta and. Hw people are suffering while one aboki is head of oil dept at NNPC, an aboki that does not know where east-west rd is. GEJ is the last president of Nigeria, u don't know better than the U.S.A!
|Re: Will Nigeria Break Up By 2015? by noiseless: 10:10am On Jun 20, 2012|
If i may ask, how does one go about the enemies(NIGERIAN MILITARY OF HAUSA/FULAN GANGS)who were roaming free in lagos and the western part of the country which was their main base to attack the igbos with people of the west providing them with everything they needed? This should be the question, when you know and welcome a boko haram on a mission to kill just because you think his killing mission wont affect you, please how do you explain that? Thanks.
|Re: Will Nigeria Break Up By 2015? by UncleChybyke: 5:09am On Jun 28, 2012|

But has it is now the different tribes in Nigeria are not in unity.but the problem now is thaT it wil be more dangerous than biafra civil war.cos brother wil kill brother, which wil be term religious war.if u want to know, go and ask kaduna masses..
