5 Stars. Now, it's left for the South-East to start strategizing. First thing, is to form a new group that understands tacts, diplomacy and charisma. IPOB lacks all of these. The most useless group in the history of freedom fighting. When all is put in place, then we can begin to reason with you, afterall whatever pinches the South-East pinches us too.
I doubt you will find any group anywhere in the world, freedom fighting or otherwise more organized than IPOB. You're only seeing things from the surface level.

My dear, let me tell you what you do not know. Igbos want an Igbo ONLY country, but for some unknown reasons, IPOB wants the 1967 Biafra, plus other Igbos not captured in that Biafra. These are Igbos in Edo, Delta, Kogi and Benue. Some think it may be because of access to the sea that they want the minorities in the South, but that should not be an issue. Even if Ijaw, Ogoni, Annang, Ibibio and Ikwerre refuse to join Biafra, the Igbo nation can create access to the sea through the Urashi River and River Niger. But if the Ikwerre who deny their Igboness and Opobo which is owned by Igbo become part of the new nation, that would not be an issue since these are bounded by the Atlantic. So with either Opobo or Ikwerre, Biafra would have direct access to the sea, but if these vote in a referendum not to be part of Biafra, dredging the River Niger and Urashi River would be the options left. This could be settled through a maritime agreement. Afterall, oil and gas are piped from the SE and SS all the way to the North and beyond. So accounts can be balanced with that.

Having said that, let me also say that if Igbos leave Nigeria without the Southern minorities, it will be a tough call for them to get their own country. These things just do not work that way. You see, Igbo are paying the price of self determination and it is only a matter of time for the world to hear them. Let me tell you what will happen then. The call for referendum will be honored and that referendum will be for all Igbo in Nigeria and the former Biafra of 1967. Nevertheless, the minorities such as Ijaw can speak up loudly not to be included in the referendum but I doubt that that would work with the UN. All would be made to participate and decide if they would be part of Biafra or not. That is when people like your daddy can make their voices heard. Ijaw is a closely knit tribe and I am sure that they can make their voices heard as one people and decide not to be part of Biafra. In which case, they revert back to Nigeria when Igbo and others that vote Yes exit.

Now on a final note, do not think that Ijaw and the minorities would casually demand for a referendum after Igbo has gone. It doesn't work that way, the choice before them is join Igbo or remain in Nigeria. There is no middle ground. I suspect that this is why IPOB is insisting on carrying along the minorities - the power in numbers. If Biafra exits without the minorities, not even in 100 years would they have the voice to get a referendum from the UN. They lack that clout as minorities, so their voice is Igbo. You can take a cue from the Kurds in Iraq and Turkey who have been agitating for decades. Igbo are paying with resilience and blood. Can the minorities do that when Igbo are gone? Good luck to you.
This your detailed explanation sweet my belle walahi.

The Igbos need to sit down and ask themselves why they are being rejected from every angle.They may want to conxlude that it is because other tribes hate them.I don't think it has anything to do with hatred.I think it has to do with trust issues.They are generally not trusted and so nobody is willing to go with them even if Biafra might be economically viable.They are on their own.

Igbos are rejected? Do you know any tribe that is accepted by others in Nigeria?

As much as I believe the Igbos have a right to self determination and I pray that God grant them what's best for them.I want to say that the Aniomas of Delta State are not Igbos and I would like the Igbos to stop imposing their identity on us.We are not Delta Igbo or whatever they ckoose to call us,we are Aniomas and so nobody should cover us with an Igbotic umbrella.I'll not loose my cultural identity and be swallowed up in theirs.Their is no divide -and- rule here.Just ask anybody from Ndokwa or Ukwani LGAs whether he is Igbo and you can go home with the response.. Anytime anyday I would vote in a referendum for a Niger Delta Republic where every tribe is a minority than to be in Biafra where one stands the chance to be margibalized.Though I doubt there would be any referendum on our side of the Niger since there is no agitation for secession even though people are not comfortable with the statusquo.
Pls no hard feelings.Thanks.

There is no tribe in Nigeria called Anioma. There was nothing called Anioma until the late 70's when it was used to denote the Igbo speaking area of old Bendel State.

As for saying that the Anioma area isnt Igbo, it all depends on who you meet. The indigenes of Asaba, capital of Delta, have never denied being Igbo.

Asaba people say it clearly on their official website that they are Igbos, and the King of Asaba, Obi Chike Edozien, said in the interview below on their website, that he is a proud Igbo man

See, I don't know where you are from. But I'm not a fan of Kanu and IPOB multi ethnic BIAFRA.
I'm rabidly Igbophilic and want Igbo only Biafra as I think the Minorities are nothing but liabilities to Ndiigbo.
You might need to take your frustrations at being included in IPOB Utopia multi ethnic BIAFRA to Kanu and his IPOB members.
I'm too proud an Igbo Man to want Minorities in an Igbo country.

that's just what we really want, an all igbo biafran nation.

I can only imagine MNK including minorities to avoid the Nigerian government attacking us through the "Niger Delta" because right now the so called Niger Deltan Republic na audio.
No agitation no awareness whatsoever

But if the Niger Deltans can be organized and have a well defined territory, get serious about their agitation and mean business.

I'm sure the MNK led Ipob will put his hands off them. The problem is MNK has a way of predicting the future and he knows that leaving Niger Delta to the Nigerian government could spell doom for the growing nation of Biafra

Trust the average igbo man at your own risk! This clowns are yet to have their biafra, they are already naming port harcourt Igweocha! You think the hausa and yorubas are bad? Let the average igbo man taste power, you will know what bad is really all about!
on the issue of igweocha.. It's obvious you don't know your history.

Port Harcourt was named by the brits to honor Lewis vernon harcourt.

Even calabar was renamed by the oyibos, it was originally Akwa Akpa.

Even the name "Nigeria", what does it mean?
They whites give you "Niger area" and we accept it all like mumus.

This our inferiority to the whites has to stop, to the extent that bearing our local names are now seen as outdated, you have to bear Mirabel, Lucy or Samantha to feel among.. RUBBISH!

BTW: No matter how much power an igbo man has he doesn't perform Jihad... Not ever.

You should know by now that the igbos don't support injustice. Weve always been the ones calling out our leaders. Throwing them pure waters and stones even as far back as 2002.

Why we don't take it to the next level is that these leaders find solitude in Abuja wen it gets rough.. Tell me in a Biafran nation where the center is closer to us if we won't hold them by the balls wen they misbehave?

Idek his point when rivers is one of the most igbotic states in the south south, these Niger Delta people here are so concerned with their greed and oil money that Will never reach the hands of citizens they rather remain in this country that has failed them since the moment they were born. To the point that some people say they don't want us again, if it comes to that abeg abandon them but we the igboid groups of rivers must be with Biafra. It's only here you'll see stupid people knowing they're fully igboid in nature and still refuse to be in a country where they'll be together

some people here are on a mission.. They just twist the truth to scare the so called Niger Deltans off Biafra so they can unleash mayhem on them.

Initially I never gave a hoot about Niger Delta joining Biafra, until I discovered that there is a plot to severe Biafran Ties with the Niger Deltans.. From then on I took it upon myself to counter their evil narratives, so that the new generation of Niger Deltans won't fall for their scam...

Me as an Igbo man, I'm Biafran by default, so if the Niger Deltans can have a rethink it's up to them.

So going by your screenshot how is the city called Igweocha? Mind you Ikwerres are not the only ones who own port harcourt, Okrikans also own port harcourt.
The Ikwerres call their own part of port harcourt Igweocha, while the Okrikans call their own part of port harcourt Hakoti kiri.
But you igbos want to completely remove the Okrikans from the scence, smh
