What's with vaccinated people always trying to shame others into getting the vaccines. If you think the vaccines work, and protect you, you don't have to worry about others.

Only full blown war can solve this nonsense Buhari and his kinsmen are doing in Nigeria.


There is need for war. Without war against Fulani tribe, they will be feeling untouchable. We need to stop all economic activities and show Fulani that they are just inconsequential cowards that can be wiped out under 48hrs and show them real madness and chase them back to their cursed lands in Futa Jalon, senseless wicked homo sapiens angry

They went to America to waste our money as usual. Sahara reporters is owned by a Yoruba man who contributed greatly to the enthronement of this APC government. The long going tactics of pitting Yorubas against Igbos in unending internet wars by Hausa Fulani guys working for the Buhari media centre (BMC) is already exposed and no longer working. Southern unity is real.

Politics / Re: FG Distributes 300,000 Hybrid Cocoa Seedlings To Farmers by GidiCars: 3:15pm On Jul 27
This is not something to be happy about. Hybrid seedlings pose more harm than good. The only reason the government is accepting hybrid seedlings is because a good percentage of those in this administration are illiterates and empty heads.

Reason is this, unlike natural seeds, produce gotten from hybrid seedlings cannot be replanted, you will have to keep buying these seedlings in order to continue growing whatever it is you are planting. It is one of the plans by the BIG BROTHERS to control food production as these seedlings are genetically modified. They are giving them out for free now cause they want poor farmers and the unenlightened to depend on them so as to phase out natural seeds. Make una dey shine una eyes o!!!!!

Point of correction: Yoruba was on board right from day one of the Nigeria-Biafra War


YORUBAs did not join in at first, it was the the north, middle belt and core south that was fighting against Biafra. The reason YORUBAs later joined was because Ojukwu tried to cross into our region with his army.
The FCT was in Lagos then, so Ojukwu tried to cross into the West with his army and was defeated at ORE by the YORUBAs.

Then again, Awolowo came onboard after few years of fighting and suggested the food blockage which was what led to the defeat of Biafra. It was the north, middle belt and SS that was fighting you for 3 years. YORUBAs would have defeated you if they joined the war.

So the Civil war that United all ethnic groups in Nigeria against the Igbo is now Hausa/Fulani versus Igbo fight abi. Everybody knows that Hausa/Fulani alone wouldn't have lasted only three months if it was just them and Igbos. Most of the fighters on the Nigeria side were Middle-belters. Even the Yorubas volunteered more men than the so-called Hausa/Fulanj. My happiness is that other ethnic minorities and the Yorubas won't be there to fight for you guys again and let's see how it will end this time around. You guys have been ranting all these days following the killings of your brothers in the East that you will do this and that but have no courage to carry it out because you know you are alone this time around. Even in your warped mind, you know you don't stand a chance with the Igbos in any war.

The last time Tinubu went to aso rock, that was the game Buhari wanted him to play. Shortly after his trip, the CP of Lagos came out and said IPOB was planning to attack Lagos. They want to make it look like the igbos are the enemy but we all know our common enemy. Do you ever think why the chinese are no longer giving nigeria loans, because they've done their study and seen that the country is boiling and would not survive the next few years.

The north that has been threatening war has never won any war on their own. Even the last civil war, they fought Biafra for 3 years and couldn't defeat them even with the support of the world powers at the time. It wasn't until Awolowo (Yorubas) came onboard and brought up the food blockage.

of course , those yoruba shouting oduduwa republic arent following.....who selected them....they aint speaking for me

I hope you do not take umbrage to what I am about to say. You have consciously or unconsciously spoken out of ignorance and with no knowledge of your history. First of all, NOBODY, including you or I EVER selects (using your own words) or chooses a person to FIGHT for SELF DETERMINATION for his people. Those who are saddled with such a task, I mean genuine FREEDOM FIGHTERS, are BORN, not SELECTED as you wrongly stated. They take on such a role simply because they care for their people and want their freedom. If you go through history, you CAN NOT find a GENUINE freedom fighter that was SELECTED by their people to fight for them. If you can find one please, tell me. Secondly, in as much as you claim that Igboho and Adams do not speak for you, the same can be said that YOU are not the voice of the majority of the YOURUBAS who want a nation of their own, ODUDUWA. I find it very disingenuous that those who claim to be in love with ONE NIGERIA can NOT articulate JUST ONE reason why they LOVE NIGERIA and want its UNITY.





First of all, I'm not even certain you're YÒRúBA. Even if you're, when the time comes, you can vote to remain in nigeria. One man, one vote, but it's only Yorubas that would be able to vote as you would have to go back home to vote. tongue

Meanwhile, we have oil in Ondo, itsekiri, Lagos...

Yoruba's history.





Known revisionist.

That is the truth, it has always been Igbos that are in Yorubas business. Even your NNamdi Azikwe tried to contest elections in Yoruba land in the past. If you had declared Biafra, stayed in your region and dialogued with your neighbours in the Niger Delta, you will probably have Biafra today. Also, your many brothers scatterd all over the Western region, many of whom don't even want to go back home self. When I finised NYSC, more than 90% of the Igbo people that served with me didn't go back to the East. Meanwhile, they all schooled in the East.

I support Seccession, and I share the same views with Adeyinka Grandson except his stance on Tinubu's presidency. You lots are parasites, and when the time comes, Oduduwa nation passport would only be given to Yorubas that can trace their roots back to their village and can be identified so that you people would not give our new country a bad name Go back to the East, and also tell your borthers to go back if you lots are serious about Biafra. tongue

It amazed me when some Igbo's are saying they are unwanted in Nigeria.

The Igbos are one of the most privileged people in Nigeria when it comes to smes business owners.

They dominate Building material, Auto spare parts, textile, electrical materials, chemist, pharmacistical, drugs, chemicals etc.

Despite all their cheatings we still don't burn down their shops in the north, west, south south and central.

The Igbos have killed more lives when you talk about fake products in Nigeria....go and ask Dora akuyili. It is from Igbo man you will hear nka fake nka original.

Let be sincere the Igbos need a rethink about disintegrating from Nigeria as it will be advantage for other ethnic groups to grow in trade, because the Igbo's has fraternized every trade and they have killed many competitors just for their business survival.

If they are complaining about Fulani dominance in Politics they are also guilty of dominating small scale businesses and doing everything possible to frustrate other ethnics groups out of business.



Despite all their cheatings we still don't burn down their shops in the north, west, south south and central.

“DEAR SIR, IF THIS STORY IS TRUE, then we don’t need WAR or VIOLENCE but DIALOGUE”. Emeka Akaolisa. Copied.
Any Historians in the house to check this out?. Nnamdi Kanu can never tell these Innocent Igbo Youths who are being Slaughtered the Truth.

Forgotten History Of Igbo Tribe And Northern Alliance.

Do you know that when Tafawa Balewa was Prime Minister of Nigeria:
1). Chief of Army Staff was from SE
2). Chief of Naval Staff was from SE
3). IG of Police was from SE
4). Chief of Defence Staff was from SE
5). Internal Affairs Minister SE
6). External Affairs Minister SE
7). Education Minister South SE
??. Senate President SE
9). Unilag VC from SE
10). University of Ibadan VC from SE

For your information, the North resisted a similar imposition at ABU, Zaria!

Still, there was dissatisfaction by SE, the officers from the region killed this same Balewa!!!!

Out of all the most senior officers in Nigeria, SE has 37, none was killed. 8 from the north, all of them were killed. 10 from the west, 2 were killed.

Then Ironsi imposed a unitary system of government on the country so that everything can belong to a region who snatched it!

We must know our history so that when we want to make corrections, we will not end up concealing the truth. This has nothing to do with tribalism but everything to do with the truth.....at times when lies litter the streets. There is a tendency to think those are truths and facts.

What follows are documented facts that can be cross-checked for authenticity!

Thou shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.

Prof. Ben Nwabueze was the man who drafted the constitution that took away powers from regions and handed it to the central government because his brother Aguiyi Ironsi was the head of state then. Today, he is shouting restructuring that he helped to destroy. We won’t forget.

WHAT BIAFRANS WILL NEVER TELL YOU ABOUT THE REAL CAUSE OF THEIR WOES IN NIGERIA TODAY:
The Igbo man is known to enjoy blaming the Hausa Fulanis, Yorubas and indeed every other Nigerian tribe and Lord Luggard/Britain for their seeming claim of being in third class citizen status in Nigeria.

In their perpetual attempts to play the victim card, they recount the political events of Nigeria from 1914 to the present in a half-baked and highly selective manner which cleverly avoids the mention of the roles played by their elite who by all natural laws of judgment were actually responsible for the woes that befell not only the Igbo race but the entire Nigeria nation. The story told in the post above is one of such selective and distorted accounts of history which the average Igbo man is fond of narrating.

However, the national archives have the complete and unedited history of Nigeria regarding the political events beginning way back from even before 1914. I will therefore proceed to furnish my readers with the complete story for all to read and be endowed with enough facts so as to judge and act from an informed position.

Shortly after the 1914 Amalgamation of the Northern and Southern Protectorates, it started getting clear that the country was bound to fail as the amalgamation in question was done with colonial fiat without the consent and consensus of the different tribes which were over 300. This prompted the political leaders to start asking for de-amalgamation so as to forestall the future danger which the forced amalgamation portended.

To that end, Ahmadu Bello, speaking on behalf of the Northern protectorate in 1944 described the amalgamation as "The mistake of 1914 which if allowed to remain will ultimately lead to unstoppable bloodshed and a failed country".

Awolowo, speaking on behalf of the Yorubas and Western minorities, described Nigeria as a mere geographical expression not qualified to be called a country let alone a nation. Awolowo added that if the amalgamation could not be reversed, then Nigeria should be structured as a strictly federal state so as to enable each tribe enjoy autonomy this freedom from being dominated by any one single tribe.


But Nnamdi Azikiwe, speaking for the Igbos, denounced Awolowo and Ahmadu Bello, terming them ethnic champions. He accused them of nursing a sectional agenda against the unity of Nigeria, and he declared further that the Unity of Nigeria was non-negotiable.

After moving the motion for independece in 1953, Anthony Enahoro proposed that a secession clause should be incorporated into the future constitution of Nigeria so as to give legal backing for any tribe to peacefully exit the forced union if it feels marginalized in future. According to Enahoro, such provision in our constitution would instill in all Nigeria's future leaders the fear of the consequences of misgovernance.

But Azikiwe, speaking on behalf of Igbos, rose against him in the parliament and labelled him an agent of disunity, and enemy of Nigeria. At a later date, Awolowo too made a case for secession clause, but Azikiwe again resisted him and instigated the colonial authorities to threaten him and Enahoro with charges of treasonable felony if they didn't stop proposing secession clause for the future constitution.

While Azikiwe did all these, Igbos cheered and urged him on because they felt the future Nigeria was theirs to dominate and lord it over every other tribes.

Before Independence, Tafawa Balewa too had in a public speech described Nigeria as a British experiment and Nigeria's unity as a British intention which Nigerians themselves don't believe in. But Azikiwe kicked and demonized him too. Had Azikiwe co-operated with Enahoro, Awolowo, Ahmadu Bello and Tafawa Balewa about the secession clause, Nigeria perhaps would not have been this misgoverned.

For those in doubt, here is a link of one of the numerous instances in which Nnamdi Azikiwe fought against the secession clause proposal for the future Nigeria constitution.

It should be noted that there were many Igbo members of the parliament in which Azikiwe fought against Awolowo's secession clause proposal in the link above, but not a single one of them rose against Azikiwe or condemned him.

Igbos initially never wanted to hear anything like secession in Nigeria because they so much believed, though falsely, that they were the most educated tribe. (The first Nigerian tribe to produce a university graduate is the Binis). As an evidence of Igbo domination agenda hence their initial resistance to the idea of secession; here are some quotes:

- "From all indications, the god of us Igbos have destined us to rule the whole of Africa"..... Nnamdi Azikiwe (1945).

- "It is getting clearer each day that Igbo domination of Nigeria is just a question of time"... Oscar Onyeamma. (1949). Anascopeterson: As at 1900, the whole of the present Benue State, Kogi East Senatorial District and some southern parts of Taraba State called Munchi District back then; were all in the Southern Protectorate. Whoever doubts this should consult MacMillan Atlas for secondary schools in Nigeria.

With that situation the South had a higher population than the North hence always had an upper hand in any democratic bargain.

But as at the early fifties when the regions were being created, common sense dictated clearly that these areas should fall in the future Eastern Region. But against common sense, the colonial masters decided to gerrymander them into the Northern Region. While they did that, Azikiwe who was supposed to be in Enugu fighting against it as the leader of the East, was far away in Ibadan struggling with Awolowo to rule the Western Region and also playing the spoiler role against Awolowo's attempts to have Kwara and present Kogi Yorubas carved into the Western Region from the North which was already too large by landmass.

While he abandoned his burning house and was far away in Ibadan struggling against Awolowo for his own (Awolowo's) region, Igbos saw absolutely nothing wrong with that. Rather they applauded him as a nationalist. A nationalist whose house was burning yet busy chasing rats in a faraway land.


When opinions became unanimous that Lord Luggard and his government must be forced out of Nigeria and indeed the whole of Africa, it was still the Igbos that frustrated the attempts. Here is how:
In 1948, Anthony Enahoro organized an anti-colonization symposium in Lagos for which Azikiwe and some other Igbos had agreed to deliver the keynote address. But when the D-day came, Azikiwe was nowhere to be found as he deliberately disappeared into thin air for fear of being arrested and dealt with by Lord Luggard.

Anthony Enahoro then quickly replaced Azikiwe with another person who did the job impromptu but perfectly well as he lambasted and lampooned Lord Luggard and the British Government. However, the British soldiers invaded the symposium venue, arrested the speaker and Enahoro, and jailed them for treasonable felony. Ironically, the next day Azikiwe came out of hiding and granted a radio interview in which he accused Enahoro and the other organizers of suffering from youthful exuberance.

On regaining his freedom a few weeks later and being told of Azikiwe's radio interview, Enahoro resigned from his post as Editor of Azikiwe's newspaper - The West African Pilot.

Then he wrote a book titled "Nnamdi Azikiwe: Sinner or Saint". After launching the book, Enahoro left Azikiwe's party - the NCNC, and moved over to Awolowo's Action Group.
The first military coup in Nigeria was carried out by the majority of Igbo army officers. That was the coup that truncated democracy just six years post Independence and led to a succession of coups which put the country on the reverse gear for 33 years.

Through that first coup, those Igbo army officers who accused the politicians and government of the day of monumental corruption, killed the political leaders of the Northern, Western and Midwestern Regions but allowed all Igbo political figures to escape by tipping them off prior to the D-Day.

In addition to the killing of political figures, they also killed a total of 27 innocent high ranking military officers from every region except their Eastern Region.

In the end an Igbo man called Aguiyi Ironsi, who was supposed to have been killed alongside other military officers, ended up becoming the new military ruler of Nigeria. Rather than immediately arrest and punish the coup plotters, he kept them in detention where they were treated as heroes. This was actually what sowed the seed for the eventual Biafra War.

On the 23rd of February 1966 (i.e. a month and 8 days after the first coup popularly but wrongly known as Nzeogwu coup, an Ijaw born Army officer called Isaac Adaka Boro who hailed from Kaima town of present Bayelsa State, declared the secession of the Niger Delta Republic in an attempt to free his Ijaw people from the monumental marginalization they had been suffering under Igbos in the old Eastern Region.

But Aguiyi Ironsi immediately ordered Colonel Odumegwu Ojukwu to arrest him and hand him over to the military high command under him in Lagos. Ojukwu went all out against Isaac Adaka Boro with federal military might and within 12 fighting days killed 150 Isaac Boro's soldiers, arrested him, stripped him naked, and had him driven to Lagos and handed to Ironsi who immediately charged him to court and within two months secured against him a conviction of a treasonable felony for which he was sentenced to death by hanging fixed for December that year by the Supreme Court. His 'crime' was that he declared the secession of the Niger Delta Republic from Nigeria.

Meanwhile, the Igbo coupists who shed innocent blood of other tribes and even sprayed bullets into the bellies of the pregnant wives of Ahmadu Bello and Brigadier Shodeinde were not charged to court or arraigned before any military tribunal.

Isaac Adaka Boro was in detention waiting for December to come for him to join his ancestors. But God so kind, a revenge coup happened on July 29 by Northern soldiers and Ironsi was overthrown and killed. Gowon took over and released Isaac Adaka Boro unconditionally, reinstated him into the Army with his previous rank.

Then on May 30, 1967, Ojukwu too declared the secession of Biafra Republic from Nigeria and without consulting or apologizing to Isaac Boro, drew a Biafra map which included the very areas that made up Isaac Adaka Boro's earlier declared the Niger Delta Republic for which he fought against him and killed his soldiers.

Seeing such a level of arrogance in Ojukwu, Isaac Boro asked Gowon to provide arms for him to crush Biafra by fighting on the Nigerian side in vengeance for Ojukwu's frustration of his own secession declaration 15 months earlier.

Isaac Boro, as an Ijaw man conversant with the waterways, led the Nigeria Army through the coastal areas into Igboland to finish off thousands of Ojukwu's soldiers thus leading to the crushing defeat of Biafra. But today, Igbos accuse Ijaws of betraying them in the war. But from the facts as above, who really betrayed the other in all honesty? Be the judge.

Why Gowon fought against Ojukwu's declaration of Biafra was as follows:

After Ironsi and Ojukwu successfully crushed Isaac Boro's Niger Delta Republic declaration, Ironsi immediately proceeded to promulgate the Anti-secession Decree which made the mere mention of secession from Nigeria punishable with death by hanging. Ojukwu openly supported and endorsed the decree despite the disapproval of it by the general public. So when Ojukwu later declared Biafra secession, he was reminded of the Anti-secession Decree made by him and his brother Ironsi.

Deadly Truth: Igbos frequently reference Aburi Accord to create the impression that the rest of Nigerian tribes don't honour agreements. This is a very dishonest narrative from Igbos.
First and foremost Aburi Accord was organized by soldiers and unelected civil servants who should not participate in political exercises like making laws due to the civil service anonymity principle.

Secondly, those civil servants and military men in attendance were not elected by their federal constituencies to the Aburi summit. In the philosophy of democracy, the only universally acceptable way of making laws is through duly elected representatives of the people. But in going to Aburi the peoples' representatives duly elected in the 1965 elections were all sidelined for soldiers to hijack the process. Where on earth do soldiers make laws for the people? Rather, the civilian populace makes laws that guide the military. Aburi Accord, therefore, had no seal of the people's sovereignty hence it was an illegality that shouldn't have been allowed to stand.

Thirdly, in 1957, Nigerians from all federal constituencies democratically elected representatives whom they sponsored to London, paid their flight tickets and hotel accommodation for the Independence constitutional conference. Those representatives all resolved and agreed on federalism marked by regional autonomy and resource control in the Independence Constitution which they brought back home and everyone accepted it.

In that constitution, Nigerians all agreed that on no account shall the military take-over power. It was also clearly stated in it that amendments to it could be done by only democratically elected representatives.

That constitution was the first-ever agreement between all Nigerians. On the day of his inauguration as the Army GoC, Aguiyi Ironsi stood before the whole world and with his own mouth swore to protect and defend that sovereign Independence constitution regardless of the circumstances that may later arise.

But just six years after he manufactured an excuse to clinch power against the clear provisions of that constitution we all agreed to, unilaterally began to amend its provisions with his very offensive Decrees. All these ended up dismantling federalism and resource control therein, and ultimately subverted that constitution we all painstakingly sacrificed to draft.

That was the height of Irresponsibility and the dishonoring of sacred agreement. That was how Igbos breached the first agreement, all Nigerians, ever all mutually consented to, thus laying the foundation for violation of future agreements.


So Aburi Accord was only treated exactly the same way Igbos treated the Independence constitution agreement.

OfoIgbo:


That's a part of the point. Because Yorubas were not at all in PDP, yet the other ethnic groups within PDP, gave Obasanjo the chance.
Obasanjo was brought out of detention, dusted up and handed over the presidency. He had nothing, but he was still made the president.

Igbos can't kill themselves, as we already know the other Nigerians will never consider dusting up an Igbo man, just the same way other Nigerians dusted up a convict and made him a president.

That is why Biafra seems very more appealing to Igbos, than trying to go chasing shadows, looking for a presidency it is clear, will never be gotten, because all the powers in Nigeria are hellbent on ensuring no Igbo man ever becomes the president.


The reason Obasanjo was dusted up was because of the June 12 saga, it was because of this same issue two Yoruba candidates ran at the pole because Yorubas went on a killing spree of both Hausas and Igbos, so don't talk as if it was just handded over to us.

Also, most Yorubas never supported Obasanjo, it was the other candidate we wanted. Obasanjo is a traitor to the Yorubas and a northern slave, he was busy asslicking the north in hopoes to get a third term agenda but was used and dumped, just the same wat Tinubu would be used and dumped. grin

If Igbos will loose more,yorubas and hausafulanis would have join hand and push Igbos out of Nigeria.



They didn't fought Igbos for three year because they love Igbos and don't want them to loose.



Fact.

Yorubas did not initially engage the igbos in the war. The FCT was in Lagos at that time, so Igbos were trying to come into Yoruba land with their soldiers which was why we engaged you lots and defeated you at Ore. If you had declared Biafra without trying to enter Yoruba land with your armies, we would have left you to fight your brothers in the North alone. tongue

The Oni of Ife had a hand in the Kingship tussle of the new Olu of Warri, that Itsekiri guy. Don't know his name. That should tell you a lot.


The north used Obasanjo, who is a traitor and a northern slave, to remove itsekiri, warri, and co that were part of the old mid west, and where under the western region. All things being equal, Itsekiri is a Yoruba tribe just like egba, awori, ijebu and co. They'll definitely be with Yoruba nation. Just so you know, Opc exist in edo and Delta states.

Igbos were the ones that had it in mind to dominate nigeria from inception, only that they are not as smart as they think. The east is a conquered territory. Kiss the truth

Forgotten History Of Igbo Tribe And Northern Alliance.

Do you know that when Tafawa Balewa was Prime Minister of Nigeria:
1). Chief of Army Staff was from SE
2). Chief of Naval Staff was from SE
3). IG of Police was from SE
4). Chief of Defence Staff was from SE
5). Internal Affairs Minister SE
6). External Affairs Minister SE
7). Education Minister South SE
�. Senate President SE
9). Unilag VC from SE
10). University of Ibadan VC from SE

For your information, the North resisted a similar imposition at ABU, Zaria!

Still, there was dissatisfaction by SE, the officers from the region killed this same Balewa!!!!

Out of all the most senior officers in Nigeria, SE has 37, none was killed. 8 from the north, all of them were killed. 10 from the west, 2 were killed.

Then Ironsi imposed a unitary system of government on the country so that everything can belong to a region who snatched it!

We must know our history so that when we want to make corrections, we will not end up concealing the truth. This has nothing to do with tribalism but everything to do with the truth.....at times when lies litter the streets. There is a tendency to think those are truths and facts.

What follows are documented facts that can be cross-checked for authenticity!

Thou shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.

Prof. Ben Nwabueze was the man who drafted the constitution that took away powers from regions and handed it to the central government because his brother Aguiyi Ironsi was the head of state then. Today, he is shouting restructuring that he helped to destroy. We won’t forget.

WHAT BIAFRANS WILL NEVER TELL YOU ABOUT THE REAL CAUSE OF THEIR WOES IN NIGERIA TODAY:
The Igbo man is known to enjoy blaming the Hausa Fulanis, Yorubas and indeed every other Nigerian tribe and Lord Luggard/Britain for their seeming claim of being in third class citizen status in Nigeria.

In their perpetual attempts to play the victim card, they recount the political events of Nigeria from 1914 to the present in a half-baked and highly selective manner which cleverly avoids the mention of the roles played by their elite who by all natural laws of judgment were actually responsible for the woes that befell not only the Igbo race but the entire Nigeria nation. The story told in the post above is one of such selective and distorted accounts of history which the average Igbo man is fond of narrating.

However, the national archives have the complete and unedited history of Nigeria regarding the political events beginning way back from even before 1914. I will therefore proceed to furnish my readers with the complete story for all to read and be endowed with enough facts so as to judge and act from an informed position.

Shortly after the 1914 Amalgamation of the Northern and Southern Protectorates, it started getting clear that the country was bound to fail as the amalgamation in question was done with colonial fiat without the consent and consensus of the different tribes which were over 300. This prompted the political leaders to start asking for de-amalgamation so as to forestall the future danger which the forced amalgamation portended.

To that end, Ahmadu Bello, speaking on behalf of the Northern protectorate in 1944 described the amalgamation as "The mistake of 1914 which if allowed to remain will ultimately lead to unstoppable bloodshed and a failed country".

Awolowo, speaking on behalf of the Yorubas and Western minorities, described Nigeria as a mere geographical expression not qualified to be called a country let alone a nation. Awolowo added that if the amalgamation could not be reversed, then Nigeria should be structured as a strictly federal state so as to enable each tribe enjoy autonomy this freedom from being dominated by any one single tribe.


But Nnamdi Azikiwe, speaking for the Igbos, denounced Awolowo and Ahmadu Bello, terming them ethnic champions. He accused them of nursing a sectional agenda against the unity of Nigeria, and he declared further that the Unity of Nigeria was non-negotiable.

After moving the motion for independece in 1953, Anthony Enahoro proposed that a secession clause should be incorporated into the future constitution of Nigeria so as to give legal backing for any tribe to peacefully exit the forced union if it feels marginalized in future. According to Enahoro, such provision in our constitution would instill in all Nigeria's future leaders the fear of the consequences of misgovernance.

But Azikiwe, speaking on behalf of Igbos, rose against him in the parliament and labelled him an agent of disunity, and enemy of Nigeria. At a later date, Awolowo too made a case for secession clause, but Azikiwe again resisted him and instigated the colonial authorities to threaten him and Enahoro with charges of treasonable felony if they didn't stop proposing secession clause for the future constitution.

While Azikiwe did all these, Igbos cheered and urged him on because they felt the future Nigeria was theirs to dominate and lord it over every other tribes.

Before Independence, Tafawa Balewa too had in a public speech described Nigeria as a British experiment and Nigeria's unity as a British intention which Nigerians themselves don't believe in. But Azikiwe kicked and demonized him too. Had Azikiwe co-operated with Enahoro, Awolowo, Ahmadu Bello and Tafawa Balewa about the secession clause, Nigeria perhaps would not have been this misgoverned.

For those in doubt, here is a link of one of the numerous instances in which Nnamdi Azikiwe fought against the secession clause proposal for the future Nigeria constitution.

It should be noted that there were many Igbo members of the parliament in which Azikiwe fought against Awolowo's secession clause proposal in the link above, but not a single one of them rose against Azikiwe or condemned him.

Igbos initially never wanted to hear anything like secession in Nigeria because they so much believed, though falsely, that they were the most educated tribe. (The first Nigerian tribe to produce a university graduate is the Binis). As an evidence of Igbo domination agenda hence their initial resistance to the idea of secession; here are some quotes:

- "From all indications, the god of us Igbos have destined us to rule the whole of Africa"..... Nnamdi Azikiwe (1945).

- "It is getting clearer each day that Igbo domination of Nigeria is just a question of time"... Oscar Onyeamma. (1949). Anascopeterson: As at 1900, the whole of the present Benue State, Kogi East Senatorial District and some southern parts of Taraba State called Munchi District back then; were all in the Southern Protectorate. Whoever doubts this should consult MacMillan Atlas for secondary schools in Nigeria.

With that situation the South had a higher population than the North hence always had an upper hand in any democratic bargain.

But as at the early fifties when the regions were being created, common sense dictated clearly that these areas should fall in the future Eastern Region. But against common sense, the colonial masters decided to gerrymander them into the Northern Region. While they did that, Azikiwe who was supposed to be in Enugu fighting against it as the leader of the East, was far away in Ibadan struggling with Awolowo to rule the Western Region and also playing the spoiler role against Awolowo's attempts to have Kwara and present Kogi Yorubas carved into the Western Region from the North which was already too large by landmass.

While he abandoned his burning house and was far away in Ibadan struggling against Awolowo for his own (Awolowo's) region, Igbos saw absolutely nothing wrong with that. Rather they applauded him as a nationalist. A nationalist whose house was burning yet busy chasing rats in a faraway land.


When opinions became unanimous that Lord Luggard and his government must be forced out of Nigeria and indeed the whole of Africa, it was still the Igbos that frustrated the attempts. Here is how:
In 1948, Anthony Enahoro organized an anti-colonization symposium in Lagos for which Azikiwe and some other Igbos had agreed to deliver the keynote address. But when the D-day came, Azikiwe was nowhere to be found as he deliberately disappeared into thin air for fear of being arrested and dealt with by Lord Luggard.

Anthony Enahoro then quickly replaced Azikiwe with another person who did the job impromptu but perfectly well as he lambasted and lampooned Lord Luggard and the British Government. However, the British soldiers invaded the symposium venue, arrested the speaker and Enahoro, and jailed them for treasonable felony. Ironically, the next day Azikiwe came out of hiding and granted a radio interview in which he accused Enahoro and the other organizers of suffering from youthful exuberance.

On regaining his freedom a few weeks later and being told of Azikiwe's radio interview, Enahoro resigned from his post as Editor of Azikiwe's newspaper - The West African Pilot.

Then he wrote a book titled "Nnamdi Azikiwe: Sinner or Saint". After launching the book, Enahoro left Azikiwe's party - the NCNC, and moved over to Awolowo's Action Group.
The first military coup in Nigeria was carried out by the majority of Igbo army officers. That was the coup that truncated democracy just six years post Independence and led to a succession of coups which put the country on the reverse gear for 33 years.

Through that first coup, those Igbo army officers who accused the politicians and government of the day of monumental corruption, killed the political leaders of the Northern, Western and Midwestern Regions but allowed all Igbo political figures to escape by tipping them off prior to the D-Day.

In addition to the killing of political figures, they also killed a total of 27 innocent high ranking military officers from every region except their Eastern Region.

In the end an Igbo man called Aguiyi Ironsi, who was supposed to have been killed alongside other military officers, ended up becoming the new military ruler of Nigeria. Rather than immediately arrest and punish the coup plotters, he kept them in detention where they were treated as heroes. This was actually what sowed the seed for the eventual Biafra War.

On the 23rd of February 1966 (i.e. a month and 8 days after the first coup popularly but wrongly known as Nzeogwu coup, an Ijaw born Army officer called Isaac Adaka Boro who hailed from Kaima town of present Bayelsa State, declared the secession of the Niger Delta Republic in an attempt to free his Ijaw people from the monumental marginalization they had been suffering under Igbos in the old Eastern Region.

But Aguiyi Ironsi immediately ordered Colonel Odumegwu Ojukwu to arrest him and hand him over to the military high command under him in Lagos. Ojukwu went all out against Isaac Adaka Boro with federal military might and within 12 fighting days killed 150 Isaac Boro's soldiers, arrested him, stripped him naked, and had him driven to Lagos and handed to Ironsi who immediately charged him to court and within two months secured against him a conviction of a treasonable felony for which he was sentenced to death by hanging fixed for December that year by the Supreme Court. His 'crime' was that he declared the secession of the Niger Delta Republic from Nigeria.

Meanwhile, the Igbo coupists who shed innocent blood of other tribes and even sprayed bullets into the bellies of the pregnant wives of Ahmadu Bello and Brigadier Shodeinde were not charged to court or arraigned before any military tribunal.

Isaac Adaka Boro was in detention waiting for December to come for him to join his ancestors. But God so kind, a revenge coup happened on July 29 by Northern soldiers and Ironsi was overthrown and killed. Gowon took over and released Isaac Adaka Boro unconditionally, reinstated him into the Army with his previous rank.

Then on May 30, 1967, Ojukwu too declared the secession of Biafra Republic from Nigeria and without consulting or apologizing to Isaac Boro, drew a Biafra map which included the very areas that made up Isaac Adaka Boro's earlier declared the Niger Delta Republic for which he fought against him and killed his soldiers.

Seeing such a level of arrogance in Ojukwu, Isaac Boro asked Gowon to provide arms for him to crush Biafra by fighting on the Nigerian side in vengeance for Ojukwu's frustration of his own secession declaration 15 months earlier.

Isaac Boro, as an Ijaw man conversant with the waterways, led the Nigeria Army through the coastal areas into Igboland to finish off thousands of Ojukwu's soldiers thus leading to the crushing defeat of Biafra. But today, Igbos accuse Ijaws of betraying them in the war. But from the facts as above, who really betrayed the other in all honesty? Be the judge.

Why Gowon fought against Ojukwu's declaration of Biafra was as follows:

After Ironsi and Ojukwu successfully crushed Isaac Boro's Niger Delta Republic declaration, Ironsi immediately proceeded to promulgate the Anti-secession Decree which made the mere mention of secession from Nigeria punishable with death by hanging. Ojukwu openly supported and endorsed the decree despite the disapproval of it by the general public. So when Ojukwu later declared Biafra secession, he was reminded of the Anti-secession Decree made by him and his brother Ironsi.

Deadly Truth: Igbos frequently reference Aburi Accord to create the impression that the rest of Nigerian tribes don't honour agreements. This is a very dishonest narrative from Igbos.
First and foremost Aburi Accord was organized by soldiers and unelected civil servants who should not participate in political exercises like making laws due to the civil service anonymity principle.

Secondly, those civil servants and military men in attendance were not elected by their federal constituencies to the Aburi summit. In the philosophy of democracy, the only universally acceptable way of making laws is through duly elected representatives of the people. But in going to Aburi the peoples' representatives duly elected in the 1965 elections were all sidelined for soldiers to hijack the process. Where on earth do soldiers make laws for the people? Rather, the civilian populace makes laws that guide the military. Aburi Accord, therefore, had no seal of the people's sovereignty hence it was an illegality that shouldn't have been allowed to stand.

Thirdly, in 1957, Nigerians from all federal constituencies democratically elected representatives whom they sponsored to London, paid their flight tickets and hotel accommodation for the Independence constitutional conference. Those representatives all resolved and agreed on federalism marked by regional autonomy and resource control in the Independence Constitution which they brought back home and everyone accepted it.

All these ended up dismantling federalism and resource control therein, and ultimately subverted that constitution we all painstakingly sacrificed to draft.

That was the height of Irresponsibility and the dishonoring of sacred agreement. That was how Igbos breached the first agreement, all Nigerians, ever all mutually consented to, thus laying the foundation for violation of future agreements.


So Aburi Accord was only treated exactly the same way Igbos treated the Independence constitution agreement.
