why was bokoharam and northern elders disturbing during gej? if you answer this question, I will answer your question
OkunrinMeta:
One would imagine that in five years that Jonathan was in Power, if these protests and loud requests for secession was brought forward and it was this loud, It might have been easier for the Igbo nation to get what they seem to want.

Of course there is also the question of whether the agitators actually speak the mind of the Igbo Nation. This is because in my corner of the country, the Igbo men I know do not seem to be very much in support of Master Nnamdi. Still, these issues should be addressed by way of logical two way discussion.

So my questions are:

why is the demand for Biafra more pronounced now?

Did the agitators forget what they wanted before?

Did they not want it at the time?

What exactly is the reasonable expectation currently?

Do you want the Hausa man to go and face his onions and cow while leaving the oil for only the east to enjoy because they are very selfless like Jesus?

Would it not have been easier to ask Jonathan to do that?

Are we willing to go back to 1967 to make it happen?

Jonathan ignored them, but Buhari didn't.
He arrested Kanu, that worsen the whole issue.

Some uninformed war singers didn't even know that Kanu started radio Biafra far back in 2009. That was even before Jonathan become the president. He blasted the hell out of Jonathan doing his regime in 2013 /2014 . He called him names, Kanu even visited Nigeria in some occasion while Jonathan was in power.

But you know what Buhari wasn't as intelligent as Jonathan. Buhari thought he was doing Kanu or the Biafra ideology, he had no one to tell him he was promoting the struggle.

A country that has a ruler that lack educational intelligence,even native intelligence will always pay heavily for it.
its the ibo mentality.
Jonathan was from the east somewhat so they were cool. The ibos are really a very difficult smile-in-the-good egotistical people.

plus mmoney was flowing so they had no issue.

Why did Jona Fr southsouth not giv his neighbors southeast bro referandum? Why did those aggressors not stop elections durin jona era. This is because this is truly the looters' game,they are all part of the game to loot naija dry,then cave out
a phoney country to spend their loots. These bullshitts aren't abt biafra is abt commerce among aristocrats and imperialists. It's all a sham carried out by their mercenaries. Unfortunately the gullible illiterate,uninformed followers who are fooled and manipulated daily are the victims dieing for nothing. Pitiable and pathetic generation of ill- informed and uninformed youths.

While northerners have been producing ministers of the federal capital territory, Abuja since it was created by military FIAT based on northern claim that it is located in the north, and their undocumented vow that no southerner will ever be appointed as substantive minister of Abuja, Northerners have been heading ministry of petroleum, NNPC and virtually all its department despite the fact that oil is located in the south. Even NPA and Customs is headed by a northerners. When was the last time you saw a southerner heading customs for example? Same situation exist in EFCC. Who is the bigger fool here? Is this charade an illustration of ONE NIGERIA?

This is a good question, Buhari should have ignored Nnamdi KANU like Jonathan did thereby hyping the biafran issue. Buhari thinks he is still in the military regime.

If you truly know that the majority of Igbos are not in support of Biafra why not conduct a referendum so that the issue of Biafra will die.

But you are scared because you know once the referendum is conducted the majority will vote in favour of Biafra.

Nigeria doesn't take orders from igbos, bear that in mind.

I started listening to radio biafra since 201 though it was only on Internet and short wave then. Jonathan was wise enough to ignore nnamdi but Dr muhammed buhari thought that everything is by power. This is a game between power and intelligent. Let's see how the end will be. Let's go to box and how many igbos that are in support of nnamdi. For sure it not all igbos that want biafra but let referendum happen.

What is 201? Who is intelligent? I hope you do not view shouts of Fulani, Yoruba bastard, Zoo, Animals, slaves and other derogatory terms as signs of intelligence.

I agree with you, Kanu should acquire some legitimacy by going to the ballot box, maybe governor, house of rep member or even a local government chairman, till then he is just another Yusuf, Shakau or tompolo. He lack legitimacy.

A referendum cannot happen because Kanu decrees it. It has to go through proper political channels. If a president unilaterally declares referendum without legal backings, its outcome will be rendered null and void by the courts, and the president faces impeachment for breaking the constitution. At worse, the military would step in in the guise of restoring the constitution which they swore to uphold.

You think you can lecture touts and high school drop outs on quantum physics or should I say quantum politics. IPOB has made Buhari popular and not the other way round. Buhari is truly unpopular right now because of his nepotistic and tribalistic appointments, but Kanu's has united all other Nigerian tribes against the Ibos with his insults and threats. This is the only reason buhari still has support in the south.

MASSOB had been campaigning for Biafra for decades, but it did not elicit this kind of hatred.

It is really annoying that IPOB cannot mention Biafra without attaching and insulting other tribes like Yoruba, other South south tribes apart from from their mortal enemy, the Fulanis.

In the event of a war, the Igbos will find very little allies in Nigeria.
I don't know why they cannot sit down and think and stop making more enemies to themselves. If ample number of Yoruba dislike your approach and you continues calling them unprintable names and also dehumanised them as zoo habitat, connote they are animals because it's only animals that lives in zoo. This is too bad and uncalled for. Same they do to Hausa and Fulani. Denigrating and dehumanising them because of self-bitterness they are wet to overcome. They also forgot the history that existed between them and the South South. Even if by convenient they marry together today, years to come they will still break up because they are not best of friends by history. Those that still know the history still harbour the feeling till date. Invariably, they had made every sections of the country their tribal enemies. That's too bad for a tribe.

Young man, no dispensation that doesn't have its own issue contending with
During OBJ, it was OPC, Sharia and Militant.
During Yar'adua, it was Militant, Boko Haram and MASSOB.

During Jonathan, it was kidnapping, Boko Haram, MASSOB Herdsmen and IPOB

Now, during Buhari, it is kidnapping, Boko Haram, Herdsmen, Militant and IPOB.

You may still be in primary school as at the time of Sharia palaver in the country and its attendant unrest occasioned with and the activities of Militants and OPC.

Jonathan was seen as their brother. He also structured corruption which Buhari is trying to collapse. So they are asking for either Biafra or restructuring of corruption.

You see how low you descended to. Abuse can never win an argument in life. The loudest voice don't ever win an argument. So you mean you cannot engage constructively without abuse. It's childish to start abusing in an intellectual discourse.
Let me still remind you your question. Why is it that Boko Haram and northern elders disturbed Jonathan?
I've taken time to reeled out every challenges in each dispensation but instead of you to appreciate me for educating you, you went low at throwing tantrum.
I've also say sorry, that I will not do that again but you must learn not to ask stupid question when you know next to nothing on political issues of the country. Nigerian political situations have grown beyond yesterday boys and girls.
