We’re yet to tackle the thorny issue of the name to give it!
I suggest Chinua Achebe Int’l Airport, or Emeka Ojukwu Int’l Airport!
|Re: Anambra International Airport Runway - Stone Base In Pictures by Hunchogee: 8:51pm On Jul 22|
PROUDIGBO:Or Aboutraka in't Airport
|Re: Anambra International Airport Runway - Stone Base In Pictures by tysontim(m): 8:54pm On Jul 22|
The name should be chinu Achebe intl airport or Aguyi ironsi intl airport.
Ojukwu has a lot of things already

As per Ironsi did what exactly for Igbos? or awarded/built a single culvert anywhere in Igboland?
Or you didn't read about how he was warned severally that Gowon was plotting a bloody coup, yet he surrounded himself with northern snakes and excluded Igbos from key command positions in his belief that northerners were naïve and could never plot a coup against him. The airport should remain "Anambra International airport" or be named after it's builder(Willie Obiano Intl, airport), the way "Imo airport, Owerri" was named after the man that built it ~Sam Mbakwe.
I hate that Ironsi died because i would have loved for him to be alive and see what his fo0lishness and overly placating the north has turned Igbos into second class citizens of Nigeria. All he could have avoided had he merely taken precautionary measures! It is the same Ironsi's recalcitrant behavior that i also see in Nnamdi Kanu that makes me loath him beyond words. They ALWAYS know it all and would NEVER listen to voices of caution. They would NEVER retrace their ways when they find they are wrong. Instead, would rather die and cause the death of others than accept when they make a mistake and quickly re-adjust.

I have always admired your contribution which I consider mature and positive,I sincerely implore you to let Mazi Nnamdi Kanu be,he is entitled to his opinion.Time and history will ultimately judge his approach but I do know that his rascally approach has actually established a beach head for our politicians to exploit.

I truly respect Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, but i loath like his arrogance and intransigence even when it is clear he made a mistake! The quality of a great leader is the charisma to change tactics when he sees he needs to. Zik calls it "Have permanent interests and not permanent friends". I totally feel that MNK is doing a noble work. Almost like being a priest. Therefore, he should tone down his tactics of insults on Igbo elders, even when he thinks they are wrong. It's almost a feeling of loath when a highly respected Bishop condescends to attack a feeble old man from the pulpit because he disagrees with him and he takes advantage because has the microphone.
Those called to the hightable must understand that they will be judged by a higher standard than the behavior of a street tout. MNK has been called to the high table of Igbo history. Therefore, he must learn to conduct himself as a leader rather than continue acting like a tout. It breaks our hearts the way that even Ex-militants and thieves can conduct themselves better than MNK in public!

Biko, obiano should first repair the damaged roads at Nibo and awka etiti/ adazi enu before deceiving us with another white elephant project. As for the wicked PG of Nibo town, don't worry, God will visit you soon just like he did pharoah. It is a promise.

we need to empathise with him, seeing vibrant and I daresay unarmed IPOB youth shot to pieces can destabilise anyone. Do you know the amount of tears that have been shed at his feet by wailing parents of these youth. Nnamdi kanu right from his days in Massob has experienced this kind of tragedy over and over again,its not easy to maintain tactical discipline under this level of provocation by Nigerian security agents,this is not propaganda ...i personally witnessed the shootings of Ipob youth near garisson port Harcourt during the rally to celebrate Trump's inauguration in January 2017,it was a traumatic experience I will never forget.
anyway Kanu is not the neophyte that most people think he is, yes he may cut across as brash and rash but he is a consummate negotiator, my brother you do not bring a knife to a gunfight,The nigerian political space is brutish and animalistic...too often our Igbo politicians are cowed into silence when they should be fighting our corner. If nnamdi was in the political space all the projects that are being denied us will have come to us,look at what is happening in the rail sector and gas pipeline network.......the south east has been effectively sidelined,we need a spoilsport and hard tackler like nnamdi kanu to "clear road" for us to make any impact.
Note please there has been a rapprochment in the last week between Ohaneze and IPOB as well as Odua in diaspora and IPOB.......we must continue !!!

My brother, I had an African American friend who was a Major in the US army. Sometime in 2013, when i visited the US, i asked him why it was so hard to defeat Taliban with all the US army's advanced weapons. He told me a good army must have a good deal of 4 items. If they manage to rank at least 60%, then they are truly unbeatable. Ofcourse i asked him what the items were and he said:
1. ~ About 30% of their strength is attributed to bravery and tenacity of their troops
2. ~ About 20% of their strength is attributed to good leadership and good training of the troops
3. ~ About 20% of their strength is based on good experienced strategists
4. ~About 30% of their strength is based on adequate and advanced weaponry.
He said the Taliban had full marks for number 1,2 and 3. Thus, he predicted that the war will finally come to a stalemate and a negotiated settlement. Before Obama left office, he did exactly that and pulled US troops out of Afghanistan. So why did i recall this conversation and share it?
If you are a responsible freedom fighter that comports yourself properly like dalai lama, Nelson mandela, Aung San Suu Kyi, etc, the world will begin to take you seriously. You will begin to be invited by key international news media to state your case against the government. You cannot get there if you talk and act like a tout rather than a leader! Part of the struggle for freedom is to build sympathy to your cause among other people who are neither Nigerian, African nor Biafran. Therefore, when Nnamdi Kanu calls black people inferior to the white man and all that nonsense he says on his broadcast not knowing top national security government agencies even in the USA are listening, he totally loses every credibility as a serious leader. Thereby damaging the cause of Biafra as a struggle by a bunch of unserious street touts. The worst part is that no matter how you try to advise him to focus on the message and not the distraction, he is too recalcitrant and arrogant to listen to anyone. Even if you are Jesus Christ! He childishly believes he knows everything in the world! It's truly a tragedy!
Nnamdi Kanu may be heart broken my friends who had been murdered by Nigerian troops. You already know that good leadership and proper training of your troops will be a deciding factor. Therefore, Nnamdi Kanu should train more leaders and make leadership of his organization something that must not come to an end once he is taken out. If he were not the selfish type and wants IPOB to outlast him, he would make sure more leaders are trained and empowered to do the right thing and take local decisions.
No doubt, IPOB has brave men, but without experienced strategists, the bravest men that rush towards a machine gun without a plan are the same as those who run away from it. The will all die in the confusion and chaos. Nnamdi Kanu is a very poor strategist despite being a very wise individual. Part of the attribute of a good strategist is to always have contingency plans often referred to as plan B or even Plan C. Your enemy can change strategy mid-way and without a plan B, you are already defeated. Nnamdi Kanu says a lot of things that he wants to achieve, but they are all mere rhetoric's. He has zero strategy and has no capacity to build proper alliances with other people that will help him achieve his objectives. The reason he is recognized in America is not due to anything he did. People went out to sell his case to important leaders when the Nigerian junta serially refused to obey multiple court orders ordering his release. If it were Nnamdi Kanu's method, he would waste more time on social media insulting Buhari and the judges, instead of organizing and visiting those government officials and leaders as was done for him.
I don't loath Nnamdi Kanu due to anything personal. I loath him for tactlessness and planlessness. His only strategy is that Chukwu okike abiama will rescue his people. Which is true, but you MUST have a plan and work hard to gain the confidence of important government officials worldwide. Instead of shying away from elections and giving silly excuses that he will be rigged out, Nnamdi Kanu could have used his massive grassroot support to make sure only true Biafrans were elected into offices in his homeland. In that way, nobody in the international community would be in doubt if most of his people support him or not. Infact, he would not need any referendum because the calibre of people elected because of his IPOB movement would clearly show his people support his cause.
I welcome the rapprochement with Ohaneze, Odua people, Middle belt and Niger Deltans. It's common sense for anyone who does not wish the mistakes of the past to be repeated to forge some type of common purpose with these people. You don't need Yorubas in Biafra, BUT mutual respect is paramount. If MNK finally stops insulting people on social media and focusses all his energy towards working behind the scene to achieve his goals, then truly Chukwu Okike Abiama is on the throne and has intervened!
