Knife of 1968 will not cut in 2021, Niger Deltans reply Buhari, say Igbos are our blood relations


The Niger Delta Self Determination Movement (NDSDM) has berated President Muhammadu Buhari over his comment during Arise TV interview on Thursday.

President Buhari had said that Igbos are a DOT in a circle, hence won’t have any access if they were to secede from Nigeria.

The president made the comment to ridicule the agitations of the proponents of a Sovereign State of Biafra who are demanding to split from the Lord Lugard 1914 amalgamation.

Buhari said: “IPOB are just like a dot in a circle. If they want to exist they won’t have access to anywhere.

“And the way they are spread all over the country, having businesses, having properties, I think IPOB doesn’t know what they are talking about.”

Reacting, the Niger Delta Self Determination Movement, in a statement titled “The knife of 1968 will not cut in 2021” and signed by the convener, Ms. Annkio Briggs, told Buhari off.

Ms. Briggs told the president to exclude Ijaws from any untoward plans he has for the Igbos, noting that Niger Deltans share blood relationship with the Igbos.

She categorically stressed that the Niger Delta people are also agitating for their own survival, hence do not intend to oppose Ndigbo to their own survival if they choose to leave Nigeria.

The statement reads in part:

“As an Ijaw and from one of the community that is at the mouth of the Atlantic Ocean, of Niger Delta and of Southern Nigeria, whoever from the South that have assured or agrees with Buhari that Igbos are a DOT is on their own and the Niger Delta Self Determination Movement (NDSDM) while agitating for our own survival do not intend to oppose Ndigbo to their own survival, even if they want to leave Nigeria.

“The majority of the Ethnic Nationalities of Niger Delta have not only a geographical relationship with Ndigbo but have a blood relationship with Igbo people, that we do not share with Buhari and his people.

”No matter the politics, blood remains thicker than water,” it concluded.

Lol.
Yerobber muslims leading buhari to his downfall.
That was how they led him on till he landed in this twitter conundrum.Buhari is now trending in the whole world for the wrong reasons grin
They think they can recruit the Niger deltans to hate Igbos like they do.
I mean,if you manage to recruit Edo ppl or Urhobo or Itsekiri, what of Annangs, Ibibios,Erik's,etc?
So,an Ibibio nation will forsake potential huge revenue from the trading activities of Igbos and deny Igbos access to d sea just because some islamabad person wants it so?

Give the so called Niger delta a nation of their own,these Ikwerre fuuls like thug wike will use speed to identify themselves as Igbo just to escape the hammering of Ijaws and form alliance with other Igbos eg Delta Igbos who already have 9 local govts.
Ijaws already showed them pepper when they were in old Rivers state b4 d creation of Bayelsa state

Imagine what a zone B is thinking. Since you know that they will go with nothing, why not allow them to secede if you are not a coward.

Again, they should know that the south east and south south are the same

Nice one. We will always lend a helping hand to IPOBS, bc without them we wouldn't be here. FG should be very careful not to anger us. If they do, what the ipobs are doing now will only be a child's play.

Lmao.

Very laughable @ "let us go".

The question these clowns can't answer is; who is stopping you from going"?

As in, who has ever submitted applications to Buhari or any relevant body that "we want to leave" and such application was rejected?

Or is it the aimless and foolish social media comments which many igbos don't even subscribe to that Buhari should use?

Recently SE leaders called lamidi bluff and stated it clearly that they are Nigerians, yet clowns are all over the places catching foolish cruise that "they should let us go". Pls who should let you go?

Even as they say so, they are still where they are (not in the SE)

Most times, I feel all these nonsense are just cruise catching or merely seeking relevance.

Most of the European countries don't have access to sea. Biafra Republic can use or access Niger Delta seaports.

Truly, we are related by blood, but, why can't we the indigenous people of Nigeria join hands together and flush out Fulani trouble makers? rather than hating one another.

The only thing the Igbo secessionist leaders care about is the Niger Delta and its vast oil deposits.

Nothing else.

Kanu himself said the FG offered him the 5 Igbo states and he refused, saying he wanted the Niger Delta as well.

He sacrificed Igbo nationhood on a barrel of crude oil.
