No I want you to think, just take a moment and think like a normal person if you are, The way Nigeria is today and the way we live in Nigeria compared to Europan countries, are there traces of zoo characteristics in Nigeria or not. Talk truth.

Don't mind the mofo! He's far gone in his Igbo hate!

We all are actually living the Nigeria of this crazed bigots dreams! Like i said, he's so far gone in his hate that he would rather Nigeria continues down the path of social-dislocation, murder, suicide, terrorism, banditry, kidnapping, economic malaise, oil theft, ritual murders, and all the other madness Nigeria is known for.....he'd rather all this continues than a Igbo be president! After all, the presidency is his and his ethnicities birthright innit!? smiley

Gidgiddy, you must know the truth about Igbo greed and insensitivity ...
.

The Aburi accord that the Igbo OP keeps regurgitating was a demand put forward by Ojukwu to rescind the creation of States with regards to that of Niger Delta regions carved out from the blighted Old Eastern region.

Ojukwu was the only military governor to welcome Ironsi's Zikist inspired Decree 34 .

Why then will Ojukwu demand for a return to the status quo prior to decree 34?

Because the Gowon military junta carved out old Rivers (present day Rivers and Bayelsa) and old Cross River (present day Cross River and Akwa Ibom) from the old eastern region - a move that was prior, viciously opposed by the Igbo dominated Eastern Parliament and to which the Jan 15 coup aimed to stop after the agitation of the lower Niger regions was presented at the Federal parliament.

The Igbo coupist struck to prevent the inevitable creation of COR region which both the Western, mid Western and northern MPs had pledged to support and see to its creation. Azikiwe had warned in an address to his Igbo delegates in the old eastern parliament at Enugu , that if the lower Niger peoples were allowed to leave the eastern region, the region will be the poorest. It is for this reason that Zik mobilized Igbo officers in the Army to assassinate the PM and Premieres of northern , western and Midwestern regions before the house was rescheduled to resume after the Christmas recess.

The Igbos were not innocent victims but vicious villains bent on imposing themselves in an Igbo military - intelligentsia dictatorship.

How can you reconcile Ojukwu applauding Decree 34 and at the same time demanding a return to pre Jan 15 status quo?

The real issue of Aburi was ojukwu insisting that the COR region be reintegrated back into the eastern region.

Now , without any sense of consideration to the already Igbo weary so-called minorities, who had now breathed a sigh of relief following the creation of old Rivers and Old Cross River, the Igbo will then drag them back into their fold and declare independence.

And they foolishly blame these same so-called minorities for not fighting to preserve their Igbo project?

Igbo ehn!

In 1967, three things happend that led Nigeria to civil war :-

1. The massacre of thousands of Igbos all over Nigeria, particularly in the North

2. The breaking of the Aburi agreement Ojukwu and Gowon signed in Ghana, by Gowon himself, which led to the third point

3. The declaration of Biafra by Ojukwu

The civil war that followed was brutal, my father fought in it as a Biafran soldier for three years. At the end of the war, the unity of Nigeria was restored, at the cost of between one and three million lives.

But has the unity of Nigeria been worth the millions lives lost in the war?

I asked my father this same question and he looked me said that when he was in the trenches fighting as a Biafran Soldier, he would sometimes turn on his Radio on at night when it was calm, and hear Gowon and other Nigerian leaders saying-

"Nigeria is indivisible"

"Our strength is in our diversity"

"We will be one great nation if we stay together"

"We have no other country but Nigeria"

"Those who want Nigeria to break up at the real enemy"

He said that sadly, over 50 years since the war ended, he is still hearing the same words from Nigerian leaders, including Gowon who is still alive, in their desperate bid to promote the unity of Nigeria, and that should tell me all I need to know

Your great Zik did not only draft and ensure the invoibility clause by rejection any call for referendum owing to how western Cameroun enacted that clause to leave Nigeria citing Igbo domineering and marginalization of other tribes , but as President of Nigeria and representative of the OAU also got other independent African nations to sign a pledge to respect each others colonial borders and do everything to ensure it remains intact.

You igbos are crying over what your useless grand fathers did to a once blessed and thriving nation.

Gowon was only parroting what Ojukwu had been championing for decades prior.

If Nigeria misses Peter Obi, it is finished.

Yes just as how you Igbos celebrated not only the Jan 15 coup and later Ironsi's coming as a saviour of the nation from the threat of balkanization even though the threat of breakup was as a direct result of your brazen foolishness of Jan 15.

When Ironsi was chased out and killed like a dog , you forgot your patriotism and went ahead with your Biafra project.

Pray tell, when Obi is rejected by every other region next year, what will you do? Go back to your "Biafra or death" march?

And why is the much vaunted unity of Nigeria so sacrosanct?
Was Nigeria created by God!? Have you read about Nigeria in the Bible or the Koran? So if an inebriated Buhari dies today and he is asked by God to explain why he killed millions of people to keep Nigeria together, his answer will be what exactly? What exactly will be the wonderful excuse? This is a criminal British estate, created by a murderer named lugard. The name Nigeria, with all its racist connotations was from Lugards bedmate called Lady Shaw! How can you kill almost 5 million people to keep such evil colonial contraption going while pretending like you somehow believe in god? How can the same set of vermins that ruthlessly and desperately loot and misgovern the country at will, continue to lay any sort of claims to greater patriotism

You should be asking Zik that question because he was the one who introduced the invoibility clause in our constitution and signed Nigeria in an OAU pact that called for each member state to respect and uphiod each others colonial borders.

Zik was moved to do this after Western Cametoun left Nigeria in 1959 citing Igbo over bearing dominance and marginalization of other so-called minority tribes and their respective provinces.


Everything the Fulani is doing today they took out of the Zikist Marxist script that wanted to see Nigeria ruled by an Igbo elite class.

Can you deny the overwhelming Igbo appointees under Ironsi?

Stop playing victim.

Your foolishness got us here and all talk of this useless Biafra will never smell the daylight as long as the Niger Delta rejects your untoward advances to annex them again.

It is for this reason we are seeing the same louts in IPOB now championing an Igbo presidency .

To the Igbo, it is either they get supreme power or they leave Nigeria not after annexing the Niger Delta .

You are the real problem of Nigeria . The fulanis are just dusting up your manuals

I don't care about Nigeria's unity.

I , unlike you fake seccesionist, truly believe Nigeria is an aberration.

The only problem I know we will face is not just the Muslim north but you Igbos who will do everything to see to it that the Niger Delta remains part of Nigeria so you can continue leaching from her resources.

The next civil war as I have always predicted here, will be between Nationalists movements fighting to escape the Rothschild plantation vs the Muslim north and Igbo Zionists.

Lol

What I never understood about characters like the above is that they claim they are worried Igbos will dominate the minorities and steal their resources

The same watched and did nothing for more than 50 years after as the Northerners dominated them and stole all their resources.

They said that Ironsi's decree 34 was their problem, despite the decree no touching the borders of the 4 Regions nor resource control, but they watched and did nothing as Gowon used Decree 14 to abolish all 4 Regions as well as resource control, create states and perpetuate 'divide and rule'

Today, all the high offices in NNPC are staffed by Northerners and over 80% of Oil blocks in the so called Niger Delta are owned by Northerners.

Laugh no go kill me lol

Well if you igbos had only respected yourselves and allowed the COR region to leave and never went about that coup Nigeria would have been an entirely different place from now.
