Deadlytruth:


Igbos invented "One Nigeria" and worked to defend it at a time it was clear that Nigeria was not one and could never become one.
Ojukwu did not see anything. He was an enemy of the Niger Delta because it was he who crushed the very first attempt the Niger Delta made to pull out of "One-Nigeria". Ojukwu was still loving one Nigeria and was ready to crush anyone whose activities threatened the survival of "One-Nigeria". Ojukwu even so loved "One-Nigeria" that he twice sent back to the North his own fellow Igbos who managed to escape to Enugu from the 1966 pogroms in the North. Ojukwu himself confessed he did that because he was genuinely convinced initially that Gowon was on a reconciliatory mission. A person who was still hoping to reconcile with a system that had already killed thousands of his own people. And you call such a person a seer of the future? Why could Ojukwu and Ironsi not declare Biafra while they were still in power and calling the shots?
Isaac Boro and Niger Deltans had already woken up before Ojukwu and Biafrans later painfully realized it was daybreak.

If you want to talk about ipob why do it hiding under another tribe name...You don't build biafra out of deceit

You and your folks, hiding under another tribe? Deceit?

I quite understand your frustrations since you're so confused about life to ever stand for something.

I'd advise you go find an idea you can live and die for else you end shall be in great miseries.

Ken Saro-Wiwa wasted his life by himself. Nigerians seem incapable of objective discourse. We read Ken Saro-Wiwa and Mamman Vatsa in secondary school in my day and you tend to love such people. Both were executed and it broke my heart. But I've grown and seen the harsh realities of life. Ken Saro-Wiwa was no less a "resource-control" advocate like the others presently doing same and reaping untold money. They're reaping millions of dollars from the death of Saro-Wiwa. All this environmental pollution he and they claim is a smokescreen. They've never cared about it. That school of thought believes that the present political entities covered by the oil area OWN the oil and should control it. Another word for greed. Number one: do you know how many "people" have come and gone in that area over the millenia that the oil was there? Because you happen to be there at the time the British opened your eyes, you claim to own it. How come over the thousands of years (or hundreds of thousands, or millions) that the oil was there that you never used it one day, until some people from far away invested huge money to search for and drill the oil to turn it into a money spinner. That was possible because you were part of a country called Nigeria and the rulers of Nigeria consider all parts of the country as one entity where they could spend or use resources as needed for the betterment of all. It was a Northern ruler that oversaw the beginning of commercial crude oil drilling in Nigeria and he used a lot of it to develop infrastructure in the country's capital which was in the West (not North). So now the water in Kainji and Shiroro dams that have been providing us electricity before gas in the Niger-Delta nko? So the communities there should start fighting about owning the water too abi? They should be sabotaging the dams because it is their water? I know it is shocking to all of you to realise that both are perfectly equivalent; they're things occurring naturally there and exploited for the national good. If oyibo didn't invent uses for crude oil, no Niger-Delta person ever would
The problem with Nigeria is the curse of ethnic identities and jingoism which makes people see things through tribal prisms and not for the national good. Nigeria is an ignorant, society of near-primates and the way out of our problem is long-term, and that is proper education and stopping this university madness which breeds ignoramuses with huge egos

IBGOS dieng for money since 1854

Here is a list of some of your greedy kinsmen who looted and ruined the fortune of this country. And this is your idea of 'One Nigeria' where you persistently rob Peter to perennially pay parasitic Paul, and still continue to spill innocent blood to maintain the status quo in the polity. Can you spot Igbos on the list?

simtosul:
The question here really is the role these men
and women played in the current state of
Nigeria.
The List of Top 20 Most Corrupt Nigerian
Leaders (dead/alive) below:

1. Oluesgun Obasanjo – He stole $25
billion from 1999-2007 ($16.4 from power
sector alone)

2. Ibrahim Babangida – He stole $15 billion
from 1985-1993 ($12.4 billion from oil wind
fall in 1990)
3. Abdulsalam Abubakar – He stole $9
billion from 1998-99
4. Sani Abacha – He stole $7 billion from
1993-1998
5. Ahmed Bola Tinubu – He stole and
continues to steal from Lagos State treasury
since 1999 till date. It’s estimated that he
has stolen $6 billion so far.
6. Muhammadu Buhari – He stole $2 billion
from NNPC accounts in the ’70s and the
money was traced to Midland bank (now
HSBC), London. Under his watch as PTF
Head, N25 billion got missing according to
PTF Situation Report submitted to Abdusalam
in 1999.
7. TY Danjuma – He fraudulently got
enriched through oil blocks from the Niger
Delta worth $20 million in the 70s after the
counter coup. Those oil blocks worth billions
of dollars in today’s value.
8. Sanusi Lamido Sanusi – He stole $1.2
billion as CBN Governor from 2008-2014.
9. Bukola Saraki – Through his father,
Olukola Saraki, their bank, Societe Generale
and as a governor of Kwara State
(2003-20111) he stole $1.1 billion
10. Nasir El Rufai – Before he was made the
FCT Minister, El Rufai was broke, homeless
and was looking for loan to import taxis from
the UK. After he was made the minister, he
seized landed properties that belonged to
Nigerians and resold them with huge profit.
It’s estimated that he stole $1 billion from
2003-2007.
11. Tunde Fashola – He is the poster boy of
Tinubu. Boht of them looted Lagos dried and
left it in debt of about N1 billion. Fashola,
among other thing built his personal website
for N78 million, drilled borehole for over N100
million per each and built a kilometre road for
N1 billion. He stole $900 million from
2007-2015. He’ll soon be a minister to
continue the looting.
12. Chubike Rotimi Amaechi – From 2007
to 2015, he stole $700 million and $150
million from that money was used to sponsor
Buhari and APC.
13. Atiku Abubakar – When he as asked by
our reporter how he made his money, he
simply said “he was always at the right place
at the right time.” Atiku is an astute
businessman, but through shady deals, he
stole $500 million from 1999-2007.
14. James Ibori – He stole $150 million from
1999-2007 as governor of Delta State. He’s
serving his term for money laundering in the
UK.
15. Amina Mohammed – This woman was
the founder of Afri-Project Consortium (APC)
that was in charge of all PTF Projects during
Abacha’s regime. About $125 million was
stolen from PTF accounts from 1994-1998.
Buhari has just nominated the same woman
as a minister to continue to stealing.
16. DSP Alamieyeseigha – He stole $120
million and was arrested for money
laundering. He pleaded guilty and long
served his term.
17. Sule Lamido – He stole $110 million
between 2007-2015 and out of that amount,
$50 million was found in his sons’ bank
accounts. He was arrested and detained for
days together with his sons.
18. Rabui Kwankwaso – He stole $100
million as a governor of Kano State. EFCC has
arrested many of his aides and they are
“singing” how they siphoned the money
19. Kashium Shettima – this governor has
stolen about $80 million and still counting.
20. Rauf Aregbesola – he has milked Osun
State to the tune of $60 million.
21. Kayode Fayemi – this former governor
stole $40 million and stashed some part of
the loot in Ghana. He was reportedly bought
a bed for N50 million.
Note: The likes of President Goodluck
Jonathan and key members of his
administration including the former Minister
of Petroleum are missing.

Deadlytruth:


Who are Igbos' mates? Were they known before the arrival of whites? The Edo Kingdom and its peoples were already known in Europe as far back as the 13th century while Igbos were yet to even identify themselves as a tribe.

So suddenly Igbos are no longer interested in sharing a country with "ass lickers and Arewanistan" after they (Igbos) held us together with ass lickers and Arewanistan by their fraudulent "One Nigeria" sloganeering against our wish? You people's hypocrisy is mind-boggling. So you knew people were ass lickers and Arewanistan yet you sought oneness with them and even held them back when they tried to separate from Nigeria?

You knew Nigeria was a cesspit of Arewanistan and ass lickers yet you held Isaac Adaka Boro back from exiting the cesspit? What an interesting Irony!
When will you guys just be honest enough to accept that you were the cause of all what you now regret? You keep hailing Zik as a nationalist yet you term as a cesspit the very "one" Nigeria he built with his so-called nationalism. What an interesting irony! That's tantamount to speaking from both sides of the mouth.

Until you answer me clearly and prove me wrong that Igbos were responsible for preventing the de-amalgamation of Nigeria your diatribes will always appear escapist and evasive in my eyes. Why can't you for once be honest and acknowledge that your Zik and Ironsi caused your seemingly irreversible bondage with those you call ass lickers and Arewanistan?

Well, the Enahoro who represented me saw it ahead that Nigeria was going to be a cesspit and he therefore proposed the secession clause in the constitution to make it easy for us his people, the yorubas, the Hausas and even Igbos, etc to exit the union later on if they felt cheated, but your Zik who was having wet dreams about one Nigeria resisted him and termed him a tribalist for that. So whose fault is it that you are now not able to exit the cesspit today?

Any educated and enlightened person knows that the only feature that distinguishes confederal constitutions from federal and unitary ones is the provision of a level of looseness which guarantees the right to secession. The constitution of Nigeria would therefore have been confederal if Enahoro's suggestion of the secession clause was accepted by Zik and his fellow Igbos. But Zik argued that the unity of Nigeria was non-negotiable and that secession clause was inimical to national unity and "One-Nigeria". Now, is there national unity today even with the non-inclusion of the secession clause? That means Zik was wrong, misguided and was fooling you people all along, yet you keep hailing him as a nationalist.

Even the truly federal constitution bequeathed onto us at independence was working fine. It was still one Mr. I- know-it-all from Igbo land that first tampered with it at a time the public did not demand constitution review. What was his motive if not fraud? It was his action that morally emboldened all others that came after him to fully bastardize the constitution from its wholly federal character to the unitary form which Braithwaite complained of. So whose fault again other than Igbos'?

My Uneme-Nekhua people can't be seeking ways to salvage Nigeria as you charged us to. We won't do so because Nigeria has always been beyond salvage and we knew and acknowledged that right from Adam. Only Igbos refused to accept that reality and gospel truth initially.
Our blood has never been shed by Northerners at anytime as we, unlike Igbos, rarely go up North to seek greener pastures but go to Lagos or overseas for which we might be called prostitutes but however not killed in the process the way Igbos get killed in the North and have still remained there seeking one Nigeria. It is rather you Igbos that have had their blood repeatedly shed by Northerners to keep Nigeria one as directed by Zik. In furtherance of that Igbos kept forming alliances with the North each time after Northerners shed their blood all in a bid to "salvage" one Nigeria. Is that the way you want us Unemes and indeed all Edos too to contribute to the "salvaging" of one Nigeria? Igbos' laughable ways of reasoning! Ha ha ha ha....... Please cut that crap of a suggestion cos we are not that silly.
Our blood is too precious to sacrifice trying to correct the blunders Igbos made against all wise counsels and are still paying dearly for.
Your claim that Igbos are not ready to form a country with Arewanistan, ass lickers, treasury looters, blah, blah, blah...is pure rubbish as Igbos and Hausas are one and the same in Nigeria's politics. The BIA syllable of WAZOBIA is an Igbo word which, on the surface, means "come" but actually is the short form of BIAFRA in deeper meaning. So Biafra is part and parcel of WaZoBia. In fact Bia is directly tied to Zo in Wa-zobia spelling meaning that the Hausa and Igbos are closer together than everyone else. Just check it out Wa (ZoBia) meaning Yoruba (HausaIgbo). There is no Edo word in the Wazobia appellation. It is all a Yoruba -HausaIgbo affair. Live with that reality. Hausas love you and you love them even when they are slaughtering you. It happened in 1945 and 1953 yet in 1959 you went into a political marriage with them called NPC-NCNC (Arewanistan-Biafra) coalition. Twenty years later, in 1979, you again went into the NPN-NPP (still Arewanistan-Biafra) coalition. Twenty years again, 1999, still you went into the PDP (Arewanistan-Biafra) Coalition once more. Do you think the twenty year interval is just being coincidental? If you think so consider the fact that a Biafran called Ekweremadu zoned the PDP (Arewanistan-Biafra) ticket to Arewanistan North against 2019........another 20 years from 1999. Open your eyes and see that Hausa and Igbo oneness is non-negotiable as Zik put it. It even follows a rhyming pattern.
hmmmmmmm.

you are definitely not urhobo for insulting Bini people. No urhobo person does that. I'm urhobo and if anything we were in the same state with the Binis (Bendel state), and because of that and many more reasons, the urhobo and Bini man would always have some sort of bond. You just cannot separate us. I'm fully aware that the only people who abuse and use all sorts of derogatory words against Binis are the igbos.

Are you Igbo? If yes, then you have no business deciding who is or who isn't in the SS. Edo state is SS and in Niger Delta. Whether you like it or not is your headache.

Another Igbo man's investment destroyed by the Niger delta saboteurs aka Avengers.

NCTL pipeline is fed crude from OML 24 oil block covering Awoba and Ekulama 1&2 oil fields. Even though AITEO ( Chike Onyejekwe) owns the NCTL pipeline, the crippled oil block is owned by Festus Fadeyi and Felix Amieyeofori .
While Avengers told us 85% of the oil blocks are owned by northerners, so far, southerners are the hardest hit.

Below are the real targets of the Avengers listed by oil blocks crippled so far;

OML 26 (owned by FHN Egbert Imomoh),OML 30 (owned by kola karim), OML34,53,54 (Owned by Ibru) OML40 (owned by Emeka Offor) OML42 (Owned by Ernest Azudialu),OML 18 (owned by Charles odita, financed by, Diamond bank (paschal Dozie), fidelity bank (Peter obi) , OMLs 4, 38 & 41, (owned by ABC Orjiakor) .

So far in this battle, no northerner has been touched, Igbo entrepreneurs who recently invested in these oil blocks that have not recovered their investment funds let alone make profit are the real target of the Avengers, the Northern Gibberish was all hogwash and a huge distraction.
History is repeating itself!!

Deadlytruth:


Ahmadu Bello made that speech in 1952 in which he correctly defined Igbos. Did Ahmadu Bello lie about Igbos in that video? Unfortunately, 7 years after he made that speech in which he so derided Igbos, Zik and Okpara decided to lead Igbos into forming the NPC-NCNC alliance with him thereby handing power over to him on a platter of gold. So whose fault was it that Igbos used their own hands to enslave themselves under a man who made it known that he never loved them and was ready to kill them? That action alone shows that Igbos are the only willing slaves and ass lickers of Arewanisatan. Remember that Hausas had already killed thousands of Igbos in 1945 and 1953 yet in 1959 Igbos went into a governing coalition which freely gave power to the same Hausas who had been slaughtering them. And in that coalition Igbos accepted to be junior slave partners whereas Awolowo offered them a coalition in which they would be the senior partners but they rejected it claiming they wanted national unity. Only a cursed people would freely and willingly accept to go into a coalition as junior slave partners with the very people who have always murdered them and made it known they had no regrets about it. Now if Hausas therefore later slaughtered millions of Igbos in 1967 were they not justified? When they had no executive power they slaughtered you in thousands and you were not pained. Then later with your own hands you gave executive power to them to slaughter you the more and they did just exactly that. How was that the fault of Unemes? Was it Unemes that placed that curse of foolishness and self enslavement on you people? Ahmadu Bello himself must have wondered how stupid a southern tribe could be to give him raw executive power after they heard him declare that the North was born to rule and subdue the South. And you tell me Igbos are not cursed?
Take a look at today; the NW region of Ahmadu Bello whom Zik gave power over the South now has 7 states and the most numerous LGAs and the lion share of federal allocation in Nigeria while the SE region of Igbos who gave him that power now has 5 states and the fewest LGAs in Nigeria thus suffers lean federal allocation from based on the unitary system introduced by Ironsi. INEC also gave you people the least population figure. That is the result of self enslavement. Penny wise pound foolish. My own Region has six states and more LGAs than SE which held us back from breaking away from Ziks "One-Nigeria" fraud.
Keep speaking accusing us of killing Aniomas while Aniomas themselves keep telling you that they have always been with us and never in the Eastern Region. The ghosts of the over 700 Edos your Biafra soldiers murdered in cold blood and dumped in the Abudu section of River Ossioma, the ghosts of the teenage Benin City girls your Biafran soldiers raped and defiled and the ghost of Okotie-Eboh whom your Ifeajuna killed in cold blood on unsubstantiated allegations of corruption but spared Zik the confirmed originator of corruption in Nigeria, etc will continue to haunt you and make it impossible for Biafra to materialise.

The same you who call yorubas liars and unreliable people are now profusely quoting Osundefender, a Yoruba, tabloid to substantiate your claims on Isaac Boro, and also referencing a book written by the same OBJ whom you call a treacherous Arewanistan slave to solidify your points. Can you see that you are really confused? So despite all the intelligence you ascribe to Ojukwu, Zik, Achebe, Okpara, etc; you could not find a book written by just one of them to reference but found reference in Osundefender and OBJ's book which are written by the very yorubas you claim are dull wicked, full of falsehood and given to propaganda? You seriously need help.

Isaac Boro and Saro Wiwa never saw themselves as Biafrans. So your insinuation that they were Biafrans who betrayed their own fellow Biafran (Ojukwu) is at best dishonest and self serving.

Isaac Boro is more likely to have died in the hands of Biafran soldiers. Obasanjo's accounts are always full of distortions. His recent book "My Watch" is full of lies about what happened between 1999 and 2007. So only a confused person like him will waste money buying OBJ's book which I believe you did.

Who killed Isaac Boro is not as important as who prevented him from having his Niger Delta Republic. If Ojukwu and Ironsi had allowed him have it he would not have later been killed by Biafra soldiers or Federal forces. As long as Ojukwu himself intended to kill him before God intervened, Ojukwu is as guilty of his death as whoever later really killed him. However Isaac Boro's case far was better than Ojukwu's case because Isaac Boro was killed alone without the massacre of innocent Ijaw civilians alongside. But Ojukwu had millions innocent of Igbo civilians killed before his very eyes by the very "One-Nigeria" which he earlier tried to please by arresting Isaac Boro and betraying his Niger Delta Republic. Even Ojukwu himself would have preferred that "One-Nigeria" killed him alone and spared those millions of innocent Igbos than the other way round in which it really happened. Igbos therefore still have the bigger lesson to learn about betrayal.
If Boro's declaration of NDR was wrong to warrant Ojukwu's crushing of it, then why are you Igbos not now crushing Niger Delta Avengers now who have only continued from where Boro was stopped by Ojukwu? Rather you Biafrans are even seeking to partner with them for synergy. Is that not an afterthought? A tribe oF afterthinkers!
I thought you people said it is a crime for the Niger Delta to seek its own sovereignty separate from Biafra? Now that NDA is seeking a purely Niger Delta Republic devoid of Biafra, which Hausa or Yoruba man can you accuse again as being responsible for poisoning their minds to exclude Igbos from their NDR map as currently being drawn by them?

Alamiyesegha might have said that Yorubas and Hausas are Ijaws' enemies. But he did not add that Igbos are their friends either.
In that speech he was silent on Igbos not because he loved Igbos or did not know that Igbos dismantled the federalism and forcefully introduced the unitary system which enslaved the Ijaws under Hausas but because he wanted to sound politically correct in the ears of Igbos. As a SS PDP politician he wanted to demonstrate passive gratitude to Igbos for their self-centred support for GEJ. Have you forgotten that the same Alams eulogized OBJ and IBB to high heavens while all was still well within PDP and between him and OBJ?
Above all Ijaws could not really have regarded Alams as their voice because he stole Ijaws blind and disgraced them internationally as Bayelsa governor and they themselves impeached him. Only Igbos accept such characters as their voices. If Igbos could start calling Saraki and Fayose their sons, then it tells you how easily deceived Igbos are.
Any Tom Dick and Harry can speak for Igbos. Fayose now speaks for them. Even my very poor, insignificant and humble self can speak for them if I want to. It is just a matter of me buying a tiny space in Punch Newspaper and using it to direct just one or two insults at Tinubu or Buhari and I will become Igbos' messiah immediately since they are cursed to be easily fooled.
Zik was born and brought up in the Northern Region, and he was a native of the Eastern Region. Ordinarily one would therefore have expected him to first seek premiership of his own Eastern Region where he hailed from or seek that of Northern Region where he was brought up and more popular. But because he was under the influence of the curse upon Igbos he went to start seeking premiership of the Western Region where he was neither from nor grew up. Why could his charity not start from home? Only a cursed people begin their charity from outside home. There were many other non-yoruba tribes in the Western Region who had equal stakes with Yorubas as to premiership. Those other tribes were yet to produce premier in their own region too yet a complete outsider and cursed intruder was placing himself as a higher stake holder ahead of them by seeking premiership over them in the name of one Nigeria? After securing their own region for themselves they set out trying to conquer and re-colonize other peoples region with the "One-Nigeria" subterfuge. Thieves!
Whatever he felt he had in stall for the Western Region, his people back at home needed it more. And come to think of it; he would have simply ruined the Western Region had he clinched their premiership. How much was he able to do for the Eastern Region when he later went back home to seek and fraudulently clinch Eastern premiership?
Benue State was part of Southern protectorate as at 1900 till the 1950s when it was excised into the Northern Region from the supposed Eastern Region. While that was happening the Zik who should have been leading the fight against the carving of Benue into the Northern Region was far away in Ibadan crying that he was not allowed to become premier and complaining of being marginalized in a place where he had no stake. If that was not the manifestation of a curse, what else was it?

Who are Igbos' mates? Were they known before the arrival of whites? The Edo Kingdom and its peoples were already known in Europe as far back as the 13th century while Igbos were yet to even identify themselves as a tribe.

So suddenly Igbos are no longer interested in sharing a country with "ass lickers and Arewanistan" after they (Igbos) held us together with ass lickers and Arewanistan by their fraudulent "One Nigeria" sloganeering against our wish? You people's hypocrisy is mind-boggling. So you knew people were ass lickers and Arewanistan yet you sought oneness with them and even held them back when they tried to separate from Nigeria?

You knew Nigeria was a cesspit of Arewanistan and ass lickers yet you held Isaac Adaka Boro back from exiting the cesspit? What an interesting Irony!
When will you guys just be honest enough to accept that you were the cause of all what you now regret? You keep hailing Zik as a nationalist yet you term as a cesspit the very "one" Nigeria he built with his so-called nationalism. What an interesting irony! That's tantamount to speaking from both sides of the mouth.

Until you answer me clearly and prove me wrong that Igbos were responsible for preventing the de-amalgamation of Nigeria your diatribes will always appear escapist and evasive in my eyes. Why can't you for once be honest and acknowledge that your Zik and Ironsi caused your seemingly irreversible bondage with those you call ass lickers and Arewanistan?

Well, the Enahoro who represented me saw it ahead that Nigeria was going to be a cesspit and he therefore proposed the secession clause in the constitution to make it easy for us his people, the yorubas, the Hausas and even Igbos, etc to exit the union later on if they felt cheated, but your Zik who was having wet dreams about one Nigeria resisted him and termed him a tribalist for that. So whose fault is it that you are now not able to exit the cesspit today?

Any educated and enlightened person knows that the only feature that distinguishes confederal constitutions from federal and unitary ones is the provision of a level of looseness which guarantees the right to secession. The constitution of Nigeria would therefore have been confederal if Enahoro's suggestion of the secession clause was accepted by Zik and his fellow Igbos. But Zik argued that the unity of Nigeria was non-negotiable and that secession clause was inimical to national unity and "One-Nigeria". Now, is there national unity today even with the non-inclusion of the secession clause? That means Zik was wrong, misguided and was fooling you people all along, yet you keep hailing him as a nationalist.

Even the truly federal constitution bequeathed onto us at independence was working fine. It was still one Mr. I- know-it-all from Igbo land that first tampered with it at a time the public did not demand constitution review. What was his motive if not fraud? It was his action that morally emboldened all others that came after him to fully bastardize the constitution from its wholly federal character to the unitary form which Braithwaite complained of. So whose fault again other than Igbos'?

My Uneme-Nekhua people can't be seeking ways to salvage Nigeria as you charged us to. We won't do so because Nigeria has always been beyond salvage and we knew and acknowledged that right from Adam. Only Igbos refused to accept that reality and gospel truth initially.
Our blood has never been shed by Northerners at anytime as we, unlike Igbos, rarely go up North to seek greener pastures but go to Lagos or overseas for which we might be called prostitutes but however not killed in the process the way Igbos get killed in the North and have still remained there seeking one Nigeria. It is rather you Igbos that have had their blood repeatedly shed by Northerners to keep Nigeria one as directed by Zik. In furtherance of that Igbos kept forming alliances with the North each time after Northerners shed their blood all in a bid to "salvage" one Nigeria. Is that the way you want us Unemes and indeed all Edos too to contribute to the "salvaging" of one Nigeria? Igbos' laughable ways of reasoning! Ha ha ha ha....... Please cut that crap of a suggestion cos we are not that silly.
Our blood is too precious to sacrifice trying to correct the blunders Igbos made against all wise counsels and are still paying dearly for.
Your claim that Igbos are not ready to form a country with Arewanistan, ass lickers, treasury looters, blah, blah, blah...is pure rubbish as Igbos and Hausas are one and the same in Nigeria's politics. The BIA syllable of WAZOBIA is an Igbo word which, on the surface, means "come" but actually is the short form of BIAFRA in deeper meaning. So Biafra is part and parcel of WaZoBia. In fact Bia is directly tied to Zo in Wa-zobia spelling meaning that the Hausa and Igbos are closer together than everyone else. Just check it out Wa (ZoBia) meaning Yoruba (HausaIgbo). There is no Edo word in the Wazobia appellation. It is all a Yoruba -HausaIgbo affair. Live with that reality. Hausas love you and you love them even when they are slaughtering you. It happened in 1945 and 1953 yet in 1959 you went into a political marriage with them called NPC-NCNC (Arewanistan-Biafra) coalition. Twenty years later, in 1979, you again went into the NPN-NPP (still Arewanistan-Biafra) coalition. Twenty years again, 1999, still you went into the PDP (Arewanistan-Biafra) Coalition once more. Do you think the twenty year interval is just being coincidental? If you think so consider the fact that a Biafran called Ekweremadu zoned the PDP (Arewanistan-Biafra) ticket to Arewanistan North against 2019........another 20 years from 1999. Open your eyes and see that Hausa and Igbo oneness is non-negotiable as Zik put it. It even follows a rhyming pattern.

Ken Saro-Wiwa wasted his life by himself. Nigerians seem incapable of objective discourse. We read Ken Saro-Wiwa and Mamman Vatsa in secondary school in my day and you tend to love such people. Both were executed and it broke my heart. But I've grown and seen the harsh realities of life. Ken Saro-Wiwa was no less a "resource-control" advocate like the others presently doing same and reaping untold money. They're reaping millions of dollars from the death of Saro-Wiwa. All this environmental pollution he and they claim is a smokescreen. They've never cared about it. That school of thought believes that the present political entities covered by the oil area OWN the oil and should control it. Another word for greed. Number one: do you know how many "people" have come and gone in that area over the millenia that the oil was there? Because you happen to be there at the time the British opened your eyes, you claim to own it. How come over the thousands of years (or hundreds of thousands, or millions) that the oil was there that you never used it one day, until some people from far away invested huge money to search for and drill the oil to turn it into a money spinner. That was possible because you were part of a country called Nigeria and the rulers of Nigeria consider all parts of the country as one entity where they could spend or use resources as needed for the betterment of all. It was a Northern ruler that oversaw the beginning of commercial crude oil drilling in Nigeria and he used a lot of it to develop infrastructure in the country's capital which was in the West (not North). So now the water in Kainji and Shiroro dams that have been providing us electricity before gas in the Niger-Delta nko? So the communities there should start fighting about owning the water too abi? They should be sabotaging the dams because it is their water? I know it is shocking to all of you to realise that both are perfectly equivalent; they're things occurring naturally there and exploited for the national good. If oyibo didn't invent uses for crude oil, no Niger-Delta person ever would
The problem with Nigeria is the curse of ethnic identities and jingoism which makes people see things through tribal prisms and not for the national good. Nigeria is an ignorant, society of near-primates and the way out of our problem is long-term, and that is proper education and stopping this university madness which breeds ignoramuses with huge egos
I'm sure if d oil was in d north u won't utter dis rubbish.. y did d federal government not allow states access thr resources same way northern states are accessing thr solid minerals mtceeeeew bunch of parasites

you are definitely not urhobo for insulting Bini people. No urhobo person does that. I'm urhobo and if anything we were in the same state with the Binis (Bendel state), and because of that and many more reasons, the urhobo and Bini man would always have some sort of bond. You just cannot separate us. I'm fully aware that the only people who abuse and use all sorts of derogatory words against Binis are the igbos.

Are you Igbo? If yes, then you have no business deciding who is or who isn't in the SS. Edo state is SS and in Niger Delta. Whether you like it or not is your headache.

TRASH
Igbos invented "One Nigeria" and worked to defend it at a time it was clear that Nigeria was not one and could never become one.
Ojukwu did not see anything. He was an enemy of the Niger Delta because it was he who crushed the very first attempt the Niger Delta made to pull out of "One-Nigeria". Ojukwu was still loving one Nigeria and was ready to crush anyone whose activities threatened the survival of "One-Nigeria". Ojukwu even so loved "One-Nigeria" that he twice sent back to the North his own fellow Igbos who managed to escape to Enugu from the 1966 pogroms in the North. Ojukwu himself confessed he did that because he was genuinely convinced initially that Gowon was on a reconciliatory mission. A person who was still hoping to reconcile with a system that had already killed thousands of his own people. And you call such a person a seer of the future? Why could Ojukwu and Ironsi not declare Biafra while they were still in power and calling the shots?
Isaac Boro and Niger Deltans had already woken up before Ojukwu and Biafrans later painfully realized it was daybreak.

One thing we forget is that 'you can only destroy a messenger but, cannot destroy the massage'. The fight he couldn't win is still on, the message keeps spreading and now there are many agitators everywhere.
Disunity is a symptom. We just live in a denial here and keep massaging the truth. The solution to all these agitations lies in ending this feeding bottle structure that we practice which encourages neocolonialism, the amalgamation of North and South is a big fraud. There is so much injustice, inequity, subjugation, winner-takes-it-all. There can't be peace under this structure, and if there is no peace there can't be unity or progress. Everyone must be made to feel involved, protected and represented for there to be first, a sense of patriotism, then unity. In this present structure where you have too strong center, one people use the instrument of the state to oppress and marginalize others. And we are talking about peace and unity. Let's be sincere, where in the world would security operatives open fire on unarmed civilian doing peaceful protest? Let's stop massaging the truthThis feeding bottle system of government we are running in this nation is the cause of all these problems. We need to end this structure. I am in total support of true fiscal federalism where every zones contribute a token to the centre and take their future and pace of growth in their own hands, and express their cultures and religion freely, and practice their vocations unhindered. I strongly believed that this is the only way to end this injustice.
So, I want to urge all Nairalanders and well meaning Nigerians to support the proposed fiscal federalism as recommended in 2014 National Conference. Let's stop this tribal statements and insult because, it will only cause hatred and more agitation for self determination.
Everyone must be made to feel involved, protected and represented for there to be first, a sense of patriotism, then unity.
