Biafra Government In Exile (bgie) Position Statement On Situation In Niger Delta by Nobody: 8:18pm On May 25, 2009
Biafra Government in Exile (BGIE) Position Statement on Nigerian Military Murdering Civilians in the Niger Delta May 20, 2009:

BGIE decries the recent and ongoing military expedition of Nigeria’s Armed Forces in the Niger Delta region starting this past week, which predictably has resulted in the indiscriminate killing of a large number of unarmed civilians, destruction of their homes and property, and the displacement and dislocation of hundreds of thousands of hapless men, women, children, youth, and elderly of the Niger Delta. BGIE strongly condemns this crime by Nigeria, a crime against the people of Biafra and against humanity.

Since the end of the Nigeria Biafra war in 1970 the Nigerian government has habitually and systematically been slaughtering innocent men, women, and children in Biafra and sacking towns and villages using its armed forces. Sadly the world has kept quiet. The Nigerian government aware that the world will remain silent and not pay attention and using her lobbying firms to shield these atrocities from the news media will continue with impunity its genocidal policy and actions against Biafrans.


However, BGIE expects men and women of goodwill of the world to finally take notice of the operative State policy of Nigeria which institutionalizes the rape of the Niger Delta and ongoing genocide against Biafrans. Nigeria Government Decrees: “Petroleum Resources Decree, 1969”; “Land Use Decree #6, 1978”; and “National Inland Waterways Decree #13, 1997,” unilaterally and incontestably took away the land, mineral resources and water resources and other property ownership and management rights of the peoples of the Nigeria Delta and Biafra without consultation or consent. Not only has the State of Nigeria impounded these resources from their rightful owners, but also the Nigerian military and political oligarchs have used the enormous financial resources accruing from these resources to amass huge financial fortunes for themselves while the rightful owners of the land and resources have been condemned to a life of poverty, misery, squalor, and privation. To add salt to injury, whatever is left after the oligarchs have looted the treasury they use to develop other parts of Nigeria while neglecting the Niger Delta, Biafra Region; all to the calculated, pernicious detriment of the Niger Delta and Biafra. The Niger Delta problem is not a “development problem.” It is a “justice problem.” Restore the land, mineral and water resources to the rightful owners and the Niger Delta problem will end very quickly.


BGIE expects courageous and practical people of the world to acknowledge the fact that the UN has adopted a principle that will be the centerpiece of the goal of restoring peace, security and stability to the region. In adopting Resolution A/61/295 supporting Self Determination of nations, races and peoples, the UN provided a mechanism for oppressed peoples and those, like the Niger Delta and Biafra, who are threatened by a failed and brutal State such as the State of Nigeria, to regain control of their respective destinies and dignity. While still reeling from the shock of the current Nigeria’s bloody attack on innocent and unarmed civilians of the Niger Delta, BGIE hereby dutifully offers a practical and effective way out of the quandary: the UN Self Determination resolution ought to be applied to the situation in Nigeria. We urge the peoples and nations in Nigeria to take this UN Resolution seriously and press for their respective Self Determination agenda. We urge the people, governments and institutions of the world to respect and support this Self Determination agenda for the people of Biafra and for peace in the Niger Delta. Thus, we can all invest in, and harvest, peace and stability in the region, while saving the lives of innocent humanity; thus, we can stop the ongoing second wave of genocide on the people of Biafra by Nigeria. Signed:

Dr. Emmanuel Enekwechi, Prime Minister


Government of the Federation of Biafra
Biafra Provisional Government: Biafra Government in Exile; Biafra Shadow Government


Sincere apologies to all.
I am forced to dig this out for the sake of those who think we just came.
Our position and campaign has nothing to do with Buhari, he only happens to be the leading PUN on this current game of political chess.

It is in their interest that 'the militants are crushed' to protect the oil.Do not tell me you do not know the history of nigeria especially the war period.
Re: Biafra Government In Exile (bgie) Position Statement On Situation In Niger Delta by Becomrich: 8:58pm On May 25, 2009
This is the man who claim he is prime minister of biafra. O boy he most have something to say. Even igbos do not know him. At least we not claim I want to remove Yar Adua or Boni yayi from power. It is just land relocation and commission we are talking about. It is not possible to have biafra.

Igbos only have 3% of nigeria land . And the other ethnics around the igbos would never join the igbos in biafra they join the nigeria army during the civil war to remove igbo biafra from thier land.

This man dream is not possible.

What we are saying is possible about the yorubas , edo and delta and bayelsa into benin republic. Niger delta republic too is not possible. This are dream that are not practical under nigeria.

The only possible way the igbo can be remove from nigeria is if the 5 igbos state want to be like swaziland inside south africa.



So Nigeria would only have  Cross river, akwa ibom, benue, taraba , north west, north east , niger,plateau and nassarawa.


Biafra would have  imo, anambra, enugu, ebonyi, and abia state,  while the rest would be in Benin republic.

You guys can't be serious.

The tamil tigers have waged a longer war and are more organized than MEND.

The tigers also have tamil expatriates who sponsor them and contribute to their propaganda Network.  

The tamil tigers are more effected at propaganda than the rag tag MEND group.  You guys seem to forgot there is an influential tamil community in the UK too (the reason british new outlets care about it more than american outlets).  The tamil tigers began to lose support when they went on an assassination and kidnapping campaign (similar to mend)

MEND would have to restructure itself in order to get International recognition to it's cause.
Re: Biafra Government In Exile (bgie) Position Statement On Situation In Niger Delta by Becomrich: 9:01pm On May 25, 2009
Biafra is possible , if the igbo want it, but it would be only the five igbo state. while cross river, akwa ibom and rivers would remain with Nigeria.  while the rest of us, Yoruba, edo, delta and bayelsa would be part of Benin republic.
Re: Biafra Government In Exile (bgie) Position Statement On Situation In Niger Delta by ikeyman00(m): 9:08pm On May 25, 2009

Re: Biafra Government In Exile (bgie) Position Statement On Situation In Niger Delta by Becomrich: 9:10pm On May 25, 2009
If they want to be with the igbos why dont they like igbos then . please explain. 

Igbos have 29,000 sq  km in the 5 state. and another about 2,000 outside the 5 state.  31,000. Nigeria have 923,000 sq km of land.

31,000/ 923,000 %  == 3.3 % of Nigeria land.

Yorubas have the second largest land in nigeria after the hausa/fulani.

cross river, akwa ibom and rivers state where the oil are most remain part of nigeria for biafra to work. And the igbos must accept that biafra is only igbo.

If the igbos accept that biafra is the five  state of igboland and the oyigbo part in River state. Nigerian would vote 99% to remove the igbos from Nigeria. the problem is that the igbos want to claim other ethnics people land. and this people do not want to be part of biafra. that why biafra have been impossible.
Re: Biafra Government In Exile (bgie) Position Statement On Situation In Niger Delta by ikeyman00(m): 9:17pm On May 25, 2009
^^^^^

the problem with u is u just keep galopin all the time

i ve rasied a lots of issues here time and time which u ve systematicly avoid

ur nigeria has deliberately defragment the igbos

if all the igbos are put togerther as it should be maybe emm u wouldnt say that

still on it

ekiti?

osun

kwara? how come they are always in the northern forum??

oh i forget the second largest u are right

when there lot and lots of tribe in the north, maybe if the go their seperates way, then the igbo might just be the biggest

so becomerich ?? u soon know what the time is

u are obviously growing faster, than the actualisation of ur never be-fantancy

listen my friend, the igbos unstoppable and u hater u cannt do anything about that, even nigeria split? the igbos will manuveur u and ur kinds

so i can understand ur concerns

cheeky hater hhah
Re: Biafra Government In Exile (bgie) Position Statement On Situation In Niger Delta by Becomrich: 9:26pm On May 25, 2009
Look you. kwara and kogi were wrongly put into the north  because britain did not understand that they were yorubas. It is the same reason why Benin republic have yorubas. Someone from benin republic can cross over to nigeria and claim he is a nigeria, since he speak yoruba and he is yorubas and you cant know, because we are the same people.

the founder of cele church is an example. for many years people did not know he was from benin republic. And the church is one of the largest churches in nigeria today. In toronto it as about 4 or 5 churches and may be over 100 in north america.
Re: Biafra Government In Exile (bgie) Position Statement On Situation In Niger Delta by ikeyman00(m): 9:32pm On May 25, 2009
so if kwara and co were put in the map by the british

why u keep includin them in ur aspirations; i can bet u not all of them speak yoruba?

at the same time the fg goverment divid up the igbos, so why shouldnt the igbos look out for their kinds as well

eh
Re: Biafra Government In Exile (bgie) Position Statement On Situation In Niger Delta by ikeyman00(m): 9:36pm On May 25, 2009
u are bloody slowpoke

so just because the founder of a church speak yoruba and hes from benin means wetin?

pope nko for latin america, asia, etc

my friend sometimes i wonder why u are so bitter, i was once like u?

and by the way, benin are not only yoruba, so i can see what the difference it makes when the yorubas are mergin with other tribes in benin

becomerich

to be honest,i never waste my time to read those propaganda

however if we gona have a debate or a court case

them the hausas and the yorubas were never nigerians

as the case of the hausa they are settlers in nigeria

as the case of yoruba they all should pack their bags and leave our nigerian land to cotonu where they came from

so u see the yorubas were never nigeria, so plz leave british out of this, the yorubas simply migrated to neaby land to their base
Re: Biafra Government In Exile (bgie) Position Statement On Situation In Niger Delta by ikeyman00(m): 9:49pm On May 25, 2009

Re: Biafra Government In Exile (bgie) Position Statement On Situation In Niger Delta by Becomrich: 9:59pm On May 25, 2009
Many smart igbos, have voice that they want to be part of nigeria. Ojukwu who started biafra claim he want to be part of nigeria. Ohaneze, iwuyawuwu the igbo leaders , the 5  igbos governor s have voice thier decision to remain in Nigeria. Biafra is a dead dream.

The reason why the igbos leader have drop the biafra dream is because the 5 igbo state can not stand on thier own. it is land lock and. There may be largest barrel of oil under igboland. which would also make it impossible for the north to let go. So the possibility is low.

The chance of discovery of oil in igboland is too high that the north would not allow it. The north prefer this map. Already oil have been discovered in imo and abia state and the area have large deposite of oil.  their chance is not good.
