Kukah: Wounds Of The Civil War Have Not Been Healed by Redcrafton: 12:39pm On Jan 14
By Nwafor Sunday

The Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Hassan Kukah, Thursday, said that the wounds of the civil war have not been healed. Kukah disclosed this at a zoom meeting organized by Dele Momodu of the Ovation Magazine and Mazi Ezeoke.

Speaking on the theme: The Second never again conference: 51 years after Nigerian-Biafran Civil war, the outspoken Bishop, advised Nigerians to compile a history of the country, noting that knowing the history will calm/qualm the taste for violence.

Kukah who has been on the media for criticizing the current administration and proffering solutions to the problems of the country noted that Nigerians and of course their leaders are not happy with the current situation of the country.

He highlighted, poor economic policies, insecurity and poor education/health systems as issues bedeviling the country and advised the current administration to fix them.

“We are failing in almost all the sectors. We must stand up and fix them”. Speaking further, Kukah said that there is enough blame to go round, noting that everyone should be blamed for the current situation of the country. If we are saying NEVER AGAIN, we must identify some fundamental issues. We must have our history written down or acted as a movie. We must understand the role of religion in Nigeria. The issue of consequentiality should also be of great essence. There should be consequences for good and bad behavior.”

Those who say the wound has been healed...

Can they mention one federal investment in the entire east?

Those who will mention uncompleted Enugu airport and tolled 2nd Niger bridge should be ashamed in advance.

I blame all these on the slavish leaders from the region, who don't know how to fight their rights.

It has been healed.
Nigeria didn't do any bad thing against the Biafrans.

There is no country in the world were someone will just rise and say he is taking is region/people out of the country the way ojukwu did, and it won't lead to war.

When Ironsi was the head of state of Nigeria, Isaac Adaka Boro decided his people are been marginalise in the Eastern region, so he declared the Niger Delta region as an independent country.

War was declared on Boro and his men by Maj. Gen. Ironsi. Col. Ojukwu should have learnt from Boro ordeal.

Do you think any lesson has been learnt?

The lessons of the war have not been learnt as Nigeria is now the Poverty Capital of the World,we are plagued with monumental corruption, unemployment, environmental ravages, Illiteracy, diseases, decayed infrastructure, financial bankruptcy, unpayable external and domestic debts, and absolute misgovernance. We have now become the more intolerant of one another, and have been further pushed apart on account of religion and ethnicity.

Fact remains the war never ended till date. It is like the cold war era. The war became a war of ideology.

Revenge on Igbos continued till date. Unfortunately Nigerians continue to harm themselves and damage their country thinking they are doing Igbos. The Igbos themselves have never forgotten the war. This is because the revenge of the war continue to stare at them on daily bases.

If not for the ingenuity of the Igbos, they wouldn't have come out strong after the war. I have told people who keep shouting Nnamdi KANU is a scammer, the only way your talk can sink into any average Igbo man is to clean the Biafran ideology from his brain. He doesn't bother who is a scammer for so long as the message of Biafra is preached. In the absence of Nnamdi KANU will arise millions other Kanus. You cannot tell someone to forget where his hope lies even as Nigeria has refused to work. Impossible.

Ojukwu declared the eastearn region as an independent country, Gowon declared war on Ojukwu and his men. This was the way Boro declared the Niger Delta as an independent country, and Ironsi also declared war on Boro and his men.

Ojukwu should have seced under Ironsi.

There're some history that don't need to be told.
How can you tell the story of the Asaba massacre, the land and sea blocked propelled by Obafemi Awolowo which lead to the starvation of millions of children to death without waking up old injuries. Abeg,lets bury the history.

Ojukwu deleared independence for the Eastern Region not the South East. Ojukwu was one of the officers who made the 1966 coup fail because he was against it. Go & read 'My Story' by Philip Effiong.

People have the right to assert their self independence if they are not comfortable with a union. Even in families, not everyone agrees with decisions made by you or on your behalf.

The Northern & Western Nigeria wanted to secede from the Nigerian entity in July 1966 until Britain & America counselled them against it because they will benefit more from a fraudulent unified Nigeria.Now, 55years thereafter see where we are as a so called nation.

The forced amalgamation of Nigeria was signed on our behalf by few people who did not take our opinions into consideration as indicated by the below report;
"........The British cobbled together Northern and Southern Nigeria in 1914. They did it to save administrative costs at the eve of World War I.Only SIX individuals actually signed the Amalgamation document.They are:

-Siyanbola Oladigbolu(Alaafin of Oyo),
-R.Henshaw(Obong of Calabar),
-Muhammadu Maiturare,(Sultan of Sokoto),
-Abubakar Garbai el-Kanemi(Shehu of Borno),
-Usuman bin Abdullahi(Emir of Kano),
-Sir Kitoyi Ajasa(lawyer and member of the Legislative Council of the Crown Colony of Lagos.The latter, Sir Kitoyi, was largely an agent of the British.....)"


“It is only a matter of time before the strange amalgam of a unitary federation becomes fully blown........"
https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.vanguardngr.com/2020/12/how-to-kill-skin-and-bury-a-country/amp/

The former USSR, Yugoslavia-Serbia, Sudan/South Sudan etc are some examples to tell you that unity is not by force.Today, Britain have left the EU.Hence you can't force people into a union they are not interested in because “Unity without verity, is no better than conspiracy.” according to John Trapp(An English philosopher).

"President Muhammadu Buhari has thrown his weight behind the people of Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic(SADR), otherwise called Western Sahara, stating that NIGERIA WOULD ENSURE THE REALIZATION OF THEIR SELF-DETERMINATION AND INDEPENDENCE..(from Morocco)

Meanwhile, above is your demigod supporting another country to secede from the other but same & his clique are tell us that "Nigeria's unity is non-negotiable." See the hypocrisy?

It has been healed but tolling 2nd Niger bridge but never 3rd mainland bridge?

It as been healed with the SE never produced some top positions in the country?

It has been healed while other regions have functional airport but not the SE?

Your sense of justice is amazing. But you need to see a doctor for rationality checks.

There is an alternative to the 2nd Niger bridge.

Presidency won't be handed over to the south east. If Nigerians are really marginalising you guys, an Igbo man won't be the Vice to Shagari. Igbos like Moghalu won't have the chance to become the Nigerian president. Obi won't be allowed to be the Vice president of Atiku.

There is a functional airport that was built by GEJ in Enugu, you people even bragged that Lagos airport will soon collapse because most of the people using it are Igbos

Incomprehensible afonja man spewing rubbish..with no stability..

Why didn't Obasanjo build the airport at Enugu? Did GEJ build it with his money?

Injustice for one could mean injustice to all...

The Jews has autonomy...The East is asking for autonomy so they can be like the Jews.

All the Igbos got today are mainly by self help while others are enjoying federal presence.

Again mention one functional airport in the East?

But you know very well the east is capable of building standard airport if it has autonomy.

They can't build a rail system if they are under this oppressive unity government.

An airport has been built in Enugu, so all this Una tears nah just like babies tears. In 2023, Igbos won't be handed the presidency, you will fight it out with other tribes.
