EVERYBODY PLEASE NOTE: IGBO IS IGBO (and nothing else!)

Please note that Ndi Igbo (Igbo people) have not rejected or renounced our ancestral and OFFICIAL name of "Igbo".

Like other nations in Nigeria/Africa, we are happy with the name our ancestors gave us, and want to be addressed by our OFFICIAL name. That means we are "Igbo" and nothing else! Please therefore stop addressing the generality of Igbo people and the Igbo Nation with other words, as that would be insulting us. We respectfully call other Nations by their own OFFICIAL name, and want the same respect given to us, Ndi Igbo.

Should Ndi Igbo decide to change our name to something else, our entire Igbo Nation would be involved in such an exercise, and we would democratically decide upon a new name for ourselves. We are a Nation so our name is not changed by one man or one group shouting out and ranting on social media.

To be clear to all, Ndi Igbo are Ndi Igbo and remain that. So that is: Igbo are Igbo.

There is no United Nations recognized country/nation called "Biafra". On a map of the world, it is a body of water on the western side of Africa.

If some Igbo people want to call themselves "Biafrans", that is their choice. That is just the name of their CLUB. It is an internet-based CLUB. Thus, it is just a virtual CLUB with a very low membership among Ndi Igbo.

Therefore please do not confuse or equate a CLUB called "Biafrans" with Ndi Igbo or Igbo Nation. Respect us please with our OFFICIAL name of Ndi Igbo, just as we respect your own OFFICIAL name.

(For the same reason, our land is called by its OFFICIAL name of Igbo Land or Ala-Igbo, and nothing else.)

Journalists (in print, TV or radio) especially, please note this fact in your writings: Igbo are Igbo, and want to be referred to or addressed as: Igbo or Ndi Igbo.

Please broadcast and share in Nigeria and the Diaspora.

Delta Igbo is fake Igbo..just as ebonyi Igbo..

You can't speak for the Igbos. We the real Igbos follow only one leader, the hunchback prophet of our time. He is even greater than the Jesus yoluba Christians worship

Lmao. Where's is NINAS and why have they gone on leave? Is it because the distraction they wished to cause was an epic failure? This is to tell you that we are locked on Biafra and Biafra we shall get. All this strategy is very dumb little wonder they pay you peanuts. You need to up your game.
Serious men know that you don't put the cart before the horses because you will just remain one place. When we say 'We Move' we actually mean 'We Move' as in making a motion towards freedom. There's no time for foolishness. Gold Coast became Ghana after independence. Southern Rhodesia became Zimbabwe after independence and Swaziland just became Eswatini just recently. After the freedom comes the name change if it is the choice of our people but until our freedom, on Biafra we stand. You can hang yourself seeing this distraction has been quashed by a superior argument. Better go and join bandits to cash out. That is where the money is. Stop wasting your time online working for peanuts.
God Bless Biafra.
