I think the slumberer is you. Nigeria has been broken up many times into several states, has it gotten better? Can u tell me how many African countries have broken up and hv become better of. Igbos don't love themselves enough to unite as one country.. Thats d bitter truth

Igbos already loved themselves enough to unite as one country in the first Republic of Biafra, and this was despite a war situation. If they could do this once, they will do it again.

The poor state of leadership in the SE isnt as bad as other regions. Your comment/question reeks of ignorance thou
I still insist on poor state of leadership in SE and moreover SE most times don't hold their leaders accountable and that's why they take them for a ride

Personally, am not against biafra, but the approach is unintelligent, no concrete preparation for the aftermath of the struggle, no sound unity among the people calling for the statehood of biafra

In Biafra igbo elites are misleading the iliterate and jobless igbo youths for what they can gain.

CrazyMan:

I wonder why the average igbo youth can't even reason. Even if Biafra is to become a reality, now is certainly not the time. Cos we aren't economically capable of shouldering the responsibilities and challenges we're definitely going to encounter.

Let our youths channel their aggression towards our leaders and demand for a better leadership in the south east.

Just like the ZOO police are shooting Innocent unarmed protesters they will also sent zoo police to shoot unarmed protesters who demand good governance cant you reason...Like somebody said its "garbage in garbage out" as far as its still the same set up.... try that in Owerri, Okorocha with the help of Aboki police will kill you instantly when go to the streets to demand for good governance, even when you refuse to vote for them they will Rig themselves in and all Nigerian Politicians are the same...get this in to your empty head. Even the Bible said when the Foundation is wrong the righteous cant do anything...again get this into your head, its not about the ppl its about how the system have been wired and there is nothing you can do except if remodeling is done. As far as its a Nigerian police, Nigerian army, Nigerian politicians nothing will WORK
Re: We Need Good Leadership In The SE Not Biafra. by tinsel: 7:58am On Nov 12, 2015
In fighting for Biafra we forgot to ask ourselves what will happen to igbos scattered across Nigeria-our jobs, businesses, properties, schools etc. Do we think the four south east states will take all igbos when they migrate east? . Are we deceiving ourselves that rivers, balyesa, akwaigbom, cross river and edo will follow us? Biafra is a mirage and something igb o elites are using for there personal gains.

With what you know about Nigerias history, why do you still believe in this British contraption called Nigeria that had never worked? You need another 55 years of no light, no water, no good roads and bad Governance before you realise that Nigeria should be broken up into smaller units so it can work rather than one big unit that is a faliure?

Am from Edo. Crazyman you are on point. Enlighten igbos pls do not make the mistake of sitting behind like the north when boko boys took over their lands and have turned them to refugees in their own land. Kindly help educate your youths that this is not the best time to agitate for biafra. Biafra will come when igbos become so prosperious and united, when nigeria cannot do without the inteligence and economic power of the igbos. Your energy should be focused on self sustainance how to generate your own power, how to provide the best educational sytem in nigeria for your youth, how to become economically endowed and independent of the nigerian state, turn igbo land to the dubia of africa. Become so relevant in the nigerian state then you have the power to be what ever you want. God bless igbo land. God bless Nigeria

Anyone criticizing this write up is senile...Even the fall & failure of Biafra in the days of Ojukwu was as a result of inappropriate planning and execution...Never fight a war you can not finish ,many innocent souls will pay dearly for it.. How I wish those behind the agitation were alive during the war of Biafra ,they won't give it a thought in their mind..those who lost families and properties will never support the idea of Biafra..How many south south will like to join the formation of Biafra..indeed it is a dead idea from the beginning. Our people don't trust themselves .

CrazyMan:
Its no longer news hearing the ongoing protests in various part of the SE by the IPOB youths. In as much as I'm of the SE extraction, I want my fellow South Easterners to be rational and objective in their thinking. Biafra shouldn't be our priority now.

The reasons why I'm of the opinion that Biafra shouldn't be our priority are:


1. Most powerful Igbos leaders are against it: Those of us with strong memories would agree with me that Nnamdi Kanu isn't the first person to follow this path.

Years ago during Obasanjo's administration, Mr Ralph Uwazurike the leader of MASSOB attempted something similar. What was the result...he spent years locked up in an underground cell, his members were jailed many are still in jail as we speak, some even lost their precious lives.

The then igbo leaders who even had the senate leadership then did nothing, why cos they weren't ready to relinquish their positions and Federal Government appointments for Uwazurike's movement.

If nothing was done by the SE leaders then, what makes the youths so certain that they'll lift a finger towards their course now considering the fact that most of our leaders are self centered?

2. Thousands and even millions of South Easterners are likely going to be plunged into the job market upon declaration of Biafra: Its most likely that if the biafran dream is actualized today, Igbos working in various Nigerian government parastatals across the federation would automatically loose their job. Starting from Igbos in the military (Army, Airforce and Navy), to Civil Service, to the Nigerian Police Force, NSCDC, Customs, Immigration, FRSC, EFCC, ICPC, The Ministry, Ministers and Senators from the biafran territory will no longer be recognized in the Nigerian Senate, ...etc.

Can we cope with that, noting that the current economy of some SE states isn't something to be proud about, and we can't even secure employment for those living there how much more when you have a mass exodus of people relocating home. How will they survive?

Germany requested for thousands of Syrian refugees because they have a very good economy to settle them in months.

We should understand that if Biafra is declared, a similar mass exodus would be experienced.

Question is do we have a plan to absorb the thousands who probably would be relieved of their duties by the Nigerian Federal Government into the biafran economy and create such parastatals for them with a short period of time so they can work and take care of their families?

These are questions we need to ask ourselves.

3. The SE is improvised: We deserve a good leadership in the SE not biafra: Currently, we lack good roads, we lack constant electricity, we lack well equipped government primary and secondary schools, we lack portable drinking water...etc. Why should secession be our priority?

Few months ago, Afikpo youths comprising of Amasiri, Edda, Uwanna...etc blocked the roads to protest 2years of blackout in Afikpo. (The thread was even on Nairaland) I witnessed that protest live cos I was in Amasiri (Ebotrans park) en route Abakaliki and was delayed by the protesters for over an hour because the whole roads leading to Abakaliki were all blocked.

If Afikpo which is agurably the second largest town with the best economy in Ebonyi state after Abakaliki can be in darkness for 2years, then I think its time for us to go back to the drawing board. Cos we can't expect the biafra economy to survive in darkness.

We should also be bothered about the number of our educated minds finding their way to other geopolitical zones outside the SE in search of greener pastures. That's another indication to tell us that our economy needs serious rehabilitation.

If we're so bent on making biafra a reality then we should beginning to hold our leaders accountable to every promise they made to us during the past elections

Great nations are ruled by great minds not thieves, crooks and heartless looters camouflaging themselves as leaders to enrich their 20th generation.

It is time for the Igbo youths to come together and reverse the trend of ubiquitous leadership ravishing igbo land and put up a system that would enable the best of us emerge as leaders.

Our leaders are our problem, therefore we should direct our aggression towards them. Because even if the biafran dream becomes a reality, I doubt we would survive up to 3years considering the kind of crooks we have as leaders.

We should try to understand that Biafra isn't the solution to the problems we're currently facing in the SE. If we fail to address the issue of bad leadership then biafra will be a case of "Dead On Arrival".

4. Inability to stand Independently: A child only thinks of leaving his parents home to cater for himself when feels he's matured enough to survive independently.

If we're sincere enough, you'll all agree with me that most SE states cannot survive without FG allocation. Currently people in Ebony are experiencing serious hardship. No thanks to the Governor (Dave) who has slashed their salaries for no good reason. Imo state isn't left out of the suffering as state workers there are also experiencing hardship as well.

We have FG allocations yet our Governors cannot pay their workers, and cannot make the state habitable for its people by providing basic amenities. What do you think would happen if the allocation stops?

A few years back when Rochas announced that he wants all secondary schools in imo state to put on a particular school uniform. Yes it was a welcome development to reduce discrimination's amongst schools. But most people frowned at him when he contracted the job to a Chinese company.

Why would a governor contract a job to a Chinese company for billions of naira when there are so many indigenous companies in the SE that would do it for a far lesser amount?

If our leaders are interested in developing the SE why have they refused to invest in the numerous untapped resources in the SE?

Or are they scared that their successors would become the direct benefactors when they leave office?

Isn't that a myopic way of reasoning?

5. Dis-unity and inability to make accurate political calculations: From the 1999 till date, while people of other regions had managed to unite behind their candidate of choice in virtually all elections that had been held, we have always failed to do so.

I wasn't born during the civil war so I have very little knowledge about Ojukwu's acceptance by the general Igbo populace then.

But I remember vividly in 2003 how he (Ojukwu) lost that election in the SE to PDP's Obasanjo. It was recorded that Obasanjo had a thrilling 69.46% of votes from the SE. If we sincerely wanted power that year why didn't we rally round Ojukwu and give him our support like we did during the civil war?

Even when Alex Ekwueme contested the PDP primaries against Obasanjo the same year (2003). That attempt clearly outlined the dis unity amongst our leaders, because most PDP governors of SE states openly campaigned against their own son and supported the same Obsanjo.

Ever since I became knowledgeable of the events happening around me, I've never witnessed any election in Nigeria where we (Igbos) emphatically agreed and produced a candidate of the Igbo extraction acceptable to the whole nation and backed him aggressively. Just as President Buhari was backed by his kinsmen and practically other tribes.

In all the elections however from 1999-till date, we (Igbos) have failed to present a formidable candidate.

We don't even have a formidable political party to start with in the SE. The APGA which was created by Ojukwu has only the governorship seat in Anambra state to boast of.

The North and the SW easily formed an alliance because they had formidable parties they were all loyal to.

My point is that if we cannot determine our political relevance here in Nigeria, we'll keep having problems among ourselves should biafra become a reality.

Solution: We are all Nigerians so we should work towards the growth of this country. To my IPOB brothers, I will say sheath your swords. Don't waste your precious lives, MASSOB has followed that path, and today their members in jail are yet to get justice and those that lost their lives as a result of the struggle have been forgotten. If you die in this struggle you will be forgotten, your name wouldn't even be mentioned anywhere as a hero. Our leaders don't care, their kids are all abroad so when a stray bullet from a happy trigger policeman hits you, you're gone. No justice!

IF we succeded on achieving BIAFRA many Nigerians will join BIAFRA and some IGBOS will join NIGERIA
what we need is BIAFRA or do you expect Rochas to support BIAFRA

If we have biafra, this question beckons for answer; Who will lead?

Sure, I believe every individual have a right to self existence and sustainability..

If our electoral system is trusted, I would have suggested a vote among the Igbo populace on whether to secede or remain as an entity (Nigeria) .

Honestly, I don't blame my brothers but I will not let emotion overhaul my reasoning because I am yet to see a workable blueprint of a new nation.

I am praying the present leadership under the auspices of President Buhari prove to all nigerians that Nigeria can survive as a prosperous nation with no bias or tribalism.

Again, where do I start from, all my life is in Lagos (born and breed), not that I am afraid of taking a step of change, but my main concern is to see a well justified and workable blueprint.

one thing I know in a greater probability, is that If this four years is the same old story, if no substantial economic advancement, if power sector does not improve reasonably, if unemployment is still at its high, this protest would have a higher leverage of being justified.

But I know God has a plan for this country especially the path this present government is threading.

It shall be well.

Your post made a lot sense for anyone who has an objective mind. Let me just say here that there is no crime in calling for the Biafran republic. Every sect or people has the right for self rule. but we should also understand that there is need for political and economic maturity for such. My humble opinion is that the SE does not have these two ingredients at the moment. I personally would suggest that if the SE must continue with the Biafran project, then it must be systematical. First the SE needs to have a strong economic base and a robust political structure before making the move to secede from present day Nigeria. It should be noted that no country lives in isolation, so the present campaign of hate and insults on other people should be stopped.
I support freedom from injustice. But there is need to clearly define the source of the injustice and deal with it. In my opinion more of the injustices in the SE are actually perpetrated by the SE leaders. When the leaders unite, then they can fight external forces trying to bring down the unity and progress of the SE.

If you don't know countries like UK and the USA have benefitted from integration, that's a topic for another time. Just know that as for now biafra is a selfish man's goal, don't become his puppet.

Anyone criticizing this write up is senile...Even the fall & failure of Biafra in the days of Ojukwu was as a result of inappropriate planning and execution...Never fight a war you can not finish ,many innocent souls will pay dearly for it.. How I wish those behind the agitation were alive during the war of Biafra ,they won't give it a thought in their mind..those who lost families and properties will never support the idea of Biafra..How many south south will like to join the formation of Biafra..indeed it is a dead idea from the beginning. Our people don't trust themselves .

I think the writer has made some important points, it is left for we the Igbos to think deeply and take action in furthering the good case of the SE. We have had wrong leaders overs the years who did nothing in pursuing a common cohesive and purposeful action to bring about a common direction to the S/E people. Ojukwu tried rallying up the Easterners by floating a party which could have served as a vehicle of common development to drive our cultural and socio-political affairs but today only Anambra state has APGA in leadership. It is unfortunate that with the pool of intellectual resources abound in the region, the polity has been left to selfish individuals who parade themselves as leaders,set of people who has no strong principles. For me this current vehicle( MASSOB & IPOB) should be used to press for better leadership from both the State and National level and to correct the injustices in this country called Nigeria on the Easterners. Biafra is a good ideology but most be handle with caution in tandem to the calls from the Igbos in the various constitutional conferences.

Those Biafra bigots should just shut the hell up and behave themselves!Do they really believe a secession will help their cause.It will only create more chaos because they are not united.what they need is good leadership and for them to UNITEDLY develop the east.To think of what they can do for their country and stop wasting time and energy.i have a lot of igbo friends and i love them as brothers.Great minds.But think of what you can do to develop your region and bring out the best in your people that way earning the respect and leadership title you so desire rather than threaten the polity.How then can we entrust the leadership of this great Nation in your care.
