The easiest thing to do when you've got no point is to rain insults. Well, i still won't go down that lane with you son. I'm so above that.

Back to the point, same folks like you who say SS and SE are one never get to say this to the face of the SS. I'm glad you fell for that because a lot of folks from the SS don't know that your kind sees them as same thing with the SE and also detest them same way. I need not preach about that here, you are doing a great job i must say. Feel free to shed more light on your stance if you so please.

Torylanez:


don't be redundant and plain stoopid

SS and SE are only Geopolitical Zones
which means they are just political zones

but Geographical zones like South East and South West are intertwined because they both have similar tribal interlocking

don't be dumb

deep down in your mind you know GEJ favoured the Easterners

My brother, he has answered you well enough. A proper Igbo only Biafra will be landlocked and likely surrounded by hostile neighbours. Yes, the Imo river pours out to sea. However it passes through Niger Delta (which will be a foreign country under this assumption) who may then impose bans or tariffs on cargo destined for Biafra. Also, the river isn't navigable across its entire length and if the Niger Delta refuse to dredge their end, building an up-river port in Biafra is dead on arrival.

You suggested Airport delivery. There is a reason why 90% of global freight is by sea. Airfreight is freaking costlier than sea! Also, not all cargo can be airlifted. Suppose, Biafra needs to import crude or petroleum products, what quantity can you easily fly into Biafra? More so, airfreight require specialized airports which will be costly to build. Also, hope you know that Biafra's neighbours can close their airspace to Biafran bound planes at the threat of shooting down violators.

Overall, Biafra being a landlocked country will increase its costs of doing business and its dependency on her neighbours. Her credit rating will be lowered due to this vulnerability and cost of funds will be high.

The chances of Biafra becoming an economic success is thus lowered and hinged on the whims of her neighbours.

Beautiful analysis! Well done, bro.'

There is no difference in this country. Constitutionally there is no provision for such an event. Any such threat to the territorial integrity is a call to war especially when attempting to resurrect a defunct state that previously engaged in war.

If people in the us began to call for a referendum while flying confederate flags and yelling Dixie or death please believe The generals would put foot to yansh in a heartbeat.
Please help me tell them....kindly educate those making untenable calls, for a separatist state. I hope they can see why it wouldn't fly....

Which agitation?
By abusing or cursing other Nigerian online and offline?
Your agitations will only lead you to great frustrations but will not lead to referendum.

Start working with other Nigerians, particularly the people you like to call gworo chewing, cattle rearing illiterates and backstabing Yorubastards/Oyorobas to convince them and agree on peaceful disintegration of Nigeria as we jointly agreed on independence for Nigeria between 1956-1959.

Because senators cannot get referendum at the national assembly, nobody can, they simply wont have the numbers.

The only way to get referendum is by agitation and civil disobedience. When the agitation gets loud enough, the national assembly.

IPOB ought to have used the opportunity of their 'no vote in Biafraland' campaign to conduct their own referendum without waiting for the zoo.

They don't need Jubril of Sudan to conduct the referendum.

That was challenges Moses had when God was using him to liberates those were slaves in Egypt. During their journey out of Egypt, they were lamenting how they were comfortable being slaves.


The only thing to stop IPOB agitations is referendum. Not Nigeria government guns and bombs.

Nigeria government and corrupt regions politicians don't know that guns and bombs are like rain to the plants to IPOB.

Northerners are using various groups in the north for their political advantages, but foolish Igbos don't know that without IPOB Igbo regions would have been a sorry states than they are now.

You guys better get used to the abuse because it will be forever. That's the price of "one Nigeria" where people are held against their will.

We are not working with anybody for our freedom. We never agreed to joining Nigeria in the first place. We cannot be working with anybody to leave a country we never agreed to join in the first place.

Eventually, everybody will see that there is no point holding anyone against their will agree to a referendum, even if it's in 200 years time

Yeah, and as soon as we do that, your family will come down to the East to fight for 'one Nigeria' just like your previous family did from 1967 to 1970

We ain't fighting anything this time around.

Of course, I will be bumping into Biafra every 3 months to say hi to you guys, eat Assorted Bushmeat with original palmy at Afikpo, Ofe Nsala at Isialangwa and Nkwobi with chilled Hero beer at Onitsha while Ngozika, Nnkiru, Adaora, Obiangeli or Amarachi will be massaging my back.

So hustle hard and let's enjoy life in Obodo Biafra.

Who told you that it is everybody that wants to leave this country? Even among the members of your tribe, NOT all of them want to leave Naija. Or did you do any quantitative research to confirm that everyone of them wants to leave? The last time the Area youths told them to leave Northern Nigeria, what did they say?

Many of them are so intolerant of dissent. Something tells me that their Biafra will be another stifling oppressive maze, like George Orwell's Animal Farm.

Dem no gree. They think power won't concentrate even further into the hands of the already rich. The only thing keeping the wolves at bay is the other 5 regions. If people want to be taken seriously just win elections. In the East no politician has the man power nor goodwill of IPOB. If they go political they can sweep every election from ward, lg chairmen & state assembly to governors, house of reps & senators. There is no secession clause. The UN doesn't like Africans. They won't come to our rescue. We have to save ourselves. Begging white folks for self determination ain't gon get it done.

But what do I know? I'm just a nobody on Nairaland. grin

@kjhova

Your analysis is on point. This is what I've also been saying about this issue and the overbearing
attitude of some of these guys who have BEEN PUSHING for the so-called secession. They have to
contend with international treaties and inability to directly access the ocean except through
very dredging which has to be done every 2 years. What has happened to the ONITSHA RIVER
PORT[not a Sea Port as some misinformed people from Iboland usually call it] since the last
President Jonathan commisioned it? It simply is NOT viable because it is a River Port.
Even Warri and Calabar are River Ports and NOT a Sea Ports and in International shipping big Ocean-going
ships will not go there except to Lagos or Onne.


I remember reading an article in Punch in 2006 when Olisa Agbakoba said he and his immediate older
brother were forcibly conscripted into the rebel fighting force, while his own legal practitioner father was
located on Nigerian soil. Olisa Agbagogba said in that 2006 Punch interview [which I still have in my library
archives] that there was a lot of HOSTILITY towards Onitsha indigenes by Ojukwu's forces and many Onitsha
indigenes were arrested and locked up in prisons in Onitsha and other places... including himself at just
16 years of age and his immediate older brother. It was later that they were forcibly conscripted to fight
Nigeria against their will. He said this must have been as a result of suspicions about the role of Nnamdi
Azikiwe's relative Ifeajuna and the fact that Ojukwu and his ilk felt that Onitsha indigenes were not commited
enough to the failed secession project... which im my opinion was already dead on arrival because Hilary
Njoku the first commander of the rebel fighters [before Alexander Madiebo took over from him] where not
prepared for the war. Ojukwu had Hilary Njoku thrown into prison throughout the duration of the Nigerian
Civil War. Magaret Ekpo whose father is also from present-day Anambra State and her mother from Calabar
was also thrown into prison along with several Ibo-speaking people for opposing the war of secession
that was started through mass hysteria and also the stubborness of Colonel Emeka Ojukwu.


All the best!
