An African proverb says: "A woman who is bereft of character said her chi doesn't attract good husbands"

Even in ur mini-biafra presently championed by ipobs/esn/ugm (aka 'fulani x-men') in ur 5 eastern states, is there 'love, trust and partnership'?
cool

Someone said something yesterday where I was having meeting with a client. He said with what Peter knows and can do, he should forget Nigeria and channel his strength to the SE zone. Eventhough there is no regional government, Igbos should vote in capable governors across southeast and have Peter as consultant to all the states. He said that after eight years, Nigerians will be on their knees begging for Igbo president. He said it and it is still ringing in my ears.
People sef ehn. Was Anambra a model State in the SE when Obi was Governor for 8 years?

Nigerians are really forgetful sha

The north don't want referedum they don't also want igbo presidency so what then do they want the igbos to do in such a situation? The greatest mistake they will ever make this time is to instigate another civil war in nigeria all their old allies in the south are now making plans to get their own independent countries just waiting for the right time.

There are a lot of things that can never happen in the east without the input of the federal govt in abuja.

I'm not convinced that Peter Obi can manage the diverse interests in this country. I believe that by the end of Soludo's governorship, he will be ready to become a fantastic president. Having gained federal experience as a CBN governor and also executive experience as a state governor. He's also dealing with unknown gunmen; if he is successful then he can apply the same ideas federally to deal with bandits and terrorists.

I understand your view but a good economic plan will solve lots of problems.
He is not perfect and wont solve everything but i prefer him over the other two candidates.

The grand plan is actually to wrestle power from these political thugs holding us down since independence

I strongly believe we just need a decentralised police system. State Police and a Federal Police to deal with very serious crimes.

gidgiddy:
I have always said that Peter Obi is eminently qualified to be President. I have my own issues with Peter Obi but I can never deny the fact that overall, the man did well when he was Governor of my state Anambra. He is a good candidate for President. Personally, I dont think Peter Obi can win the Presidency, nobody in the North will vote for him, no matter how good a candidate he is. Being both Igbo and a Christian has ruled him out in the North.

But in the unlikely scenario that Obi wins, it will be a very bad thing for us Igbos.

If you wonder why, then think of what happened to the last Igbo man who was President of Nigeria. A military revolution resulted in General Ironsi becoming the first Nigerian to be head of state, and commander of the armed forces(before, both offices were seperate). From the day Ironsi became President, his government was sabotaged. There were some power blocs in Nigeria that could not sleep at night knowing that an Igbo man was head of state and commander in Chief. They lied against Ironsi, plotted against him, misquoted him at every opportunity, used propaganda against him, claimed that everything Ironsi did was for the benefit of Igbos, painted his administration black. They even massacred Igbos during Ironsi's regime. When the time was right, they took out Ironsi. To this day, they still lie against Ironsi and claim he abolished Regionalism introduced unitary rule, something that everyone knows Gowon did. They say this because they need to blame Igbos for Nigerias woes, yet no Igbo has been President since Ironsi, 55 years ago

Should Peter Obi become President, what happened to Ironsi will happen to him. There are some people who will not be able to sleep at night knowing that an Igbo man is in Aso Rock. Obi's government will be sabotaged from day one, he will be misquoted at every opportunity, they will unleash propaganda against him, reduce everything he does to trying to benefit Igbos, paint his administration black, and try to take him out. Obi will spend 4 years fighting forces that have entrenched themselves in all strata of government for over 50 years

The resultant effect is that his government will fail, Igbos will be blamed, ostracised and masacared. Many Igbos still dont understand the Nigeria they belong to. It is one where the power blocs dont trust an Igbo man with the Presidency, are highly suspicious of the Igbo man, and they want to see the Igbo man fail politically

A Peter Obi Presidency will be very bad for Igbos. What the Igbo nation should be talking about is independence from the failed British colonial contraption called Nigeria. It will not be a good thing for the Igbo nation, for Peter Obi or any Igbo man to be President of Nigera. If the 30,000 Igbos slaughtered after Ironsi was killed, were alive today, they would say the same

We share same thought here...Soludo's performance will likely give us a president from Igbo extraction.

To be honest with you, this is the second time I have course to support Biafra call for independence.
First: After Reading the book: There Was A Country by Chinua Achebe.
Second: After this your posts.

In the the wake of Operation Python Dance I somehow wish the Igbo leaders could have done more, but till date they failed woefully to formally take the lead in the call for referendum and autonomy.
Ibos should not stay any longer if Nigeria State cannot CELEBRATE them with Leadership instead of the pseudo political tolerance with resistance they are faced with today. It is absolutely unfair. The trauma is too much and beyond comprehension

This your article shows that you are thinking of a boy. The circumstances that resulted then is quite different from today, and if anything happens to any Igbo we shall just find the tribe of the leader of such situation and wipe out their majority, no one is fighting the FG, if a Fulani man lead such situation we deal with them, if a Yoruba man lead it we wipe out half of their population, if an Igbo man do it we wipe out his clan it is that simple, no one has a monopoly of madness
