|Politics / What The Ndigbo Nation Wants? by cocolacec(m): 1:38pm|
The Ißo Nation is looking for three things from Nigeria.
1. To govern as President of Nigeria and use the centralized military and police to recolonize the entire country. If they can't manage to rule as the President of Nigeria, then they want...
2. To take control of all of southern Nigeria and rule it. If that doesn't work, then they just want...
3. To carve out the former eastern region of Nigeria and take the minorities Ijaw, Efik-Ibibio, Edo with them into the Biafra.
The IPOB campaign for Biafra is not about the freedom of the Ißo, but more about being unhappy with the Fulani for forming a coalition government with the Yoruba led by Tinubu.
We must remember that at independence, Ißo refused a coalition government with the Yoruba people to team up with the Fulani and use the federal power to capture the Yoruba's wealth and resources.
The first thing they did was to work with the Fulani to carve out the Midwest region and annex it into the Ißo controlled area.
Then they got Awolowo out of the way so they could use Remi Fani Kayode, a half-blood Yoruba to take control of the western region.
In 1962, they had Awolowo, who was the architect of chasing the English out of Nigeria in 1960, celebrated the second anniversary of the independence of Nigeria under a house arrest in the official residence of the Leader of the Opposition at 7 Bell Avenue, Ikoyi in Lagos.
Awolowo had been restricted to within one mile radius of his home at Ikenne on 29th May, 1962, following the declaration of a state of emergency by the Nigerian Federal Government led by the Ißo and Fulani.
On 19th June, 1962, Awolowo was ordered to proceed to a remote, marshy, mosquito-ridden fishing village on the Lagos Lagoon of Lekki, where he remained until he was ordered back to Ikenne in July 1962.
On July 22, 1962, Awolowo was transferred to Lagos in order to be available for an exhaustive inquiry into his 8 year rule of the Western Region in all its ramifications.
During this time, Awolowo was under house arrest and later accused of treason and conspiracy by the Ißo and Fulani coalition government.
In September 1963, he was jailed for 10 years, shortly after his first son Ṣegun had been killed in a car accident planned by the Ißo.
In 1964, the attempt of the Ißo to take over the Western Region totally backfired when the Fulani imposed Akintola as Premier of the Western Region and now used him to checkmate the Ißo.
The series of events led to the Ißo coup of January 1966.
And when the second coup of July 1966 led by the Fulani totally removed the Ißo from power, they wanted to break away from Nigeria and take along with them the minorities that have always rejected them.
On the 2nd of August 1966, General Yakubu Gowon released Awolowo from the prison.
In the course of the civil war, the same Ibo who helped put Awolowo in prison suddenly tried to use him for manipulation.
Ojukwu saw that the Northern part of Nigeria was now out of reach and decided to capture the whole southern part of Nigeria.
Ojukwu wanted Awolowo to support him so he could provide soldiers for him. Awolowo did not fall for the bait.
Then he raised an army under Víctor Banjo with a mission to ransack the entire western region and take control of Lagos.
Ojukwu told Victor Banjo that if he takes Western region, he will be the new Governor of the region, but would take orders from him and his army will remain in the Western Region to keep him in check.
When this backfired, he settled for Biafra and carved out boundaries forcefully taking with him Ijaw and Ibibio… a people they were not together with as a nation before the arrival of the English.
And after the war, Ißo re-entered a coalition government with the Fulani in 1979 and 1983.
The situation right now is no different from what has happened in the past.
Forget the cover-up with IPOB and the Fulani. They are just upset that Fulani dumped them for Yoruba under Tinubu in 2015.
Only a few years ago, the Ißo spoke of declaring Lagos a cosmopolitan state and dominating it.
The Biafran unrest started after Jonathan lost in 2015.
Nnamdi Kanu believed in Nigeria during the reign of Jonathan. But immediately they lost out at the center, the cry for Biafra started.
While the shouting continued, Nnamdi Kanu stopped to support Atiku, and when Atiku lost, he got angry and expressed in writing how they were robbed of the chance of getting back to power through Peter Obi.
Now, little by little, their agitation is drawing attention and arguments are made to give them their Biafra, which is only the Ibo-speaking region, they immediately changed the purpose and say they want the Niger Delta region.
Once again, the situation of the 1960s is at stake with their desire for Yorubaland through their southern unity and half Yoruba blood in Yoruba-PDP.
All they are doing is building on the English platforms in a desperate attempt to be the new overlords, rather than staying in their lane to rebrand a homogenous Ibo nation.
Biafra is not a fight for freedom. It is scum to make so much noise until they return to power.
With the noise of Biafra, the IPOB and Ißo are only trying to position themselves for the upcoming elections in 2023.
The IPOB campaign for Biafra is because they are angry with the Fulani for forming a coalition government with the Yoruba headed by Tinubu.
If Ißo really wants to leave Nigeria, the five states of Ißo plus the local governments speaking Ißo in the Delta and River states are Ißoland.
1. Abia State.
2. Enugu State.
3. Anambra State.
4. Ebonyi State.
5. Imo State.

You got it wrong. Dortmund wanted 95-100 million POUNDS last year (about 120 million EURO). Now they are willing to sell for 81 million POUNDS (about 95 million EURO), though United are offering about 72 million POUNDS (about 85 million EURO).
In essence the fee has dropped by about 20 million pounds in the last 12 months.

Your comment indicate how little you know about blockchain. You can't shutdown a blockchain project hosted on Github, not even the US govt have that power. You can only ban the use of it in your sovereignty.
Go and shutdown Ethereum, Ripple, Dash, Tron and let me see. No one is running an ICO here (Initial Coin offering). You are not even buying, you are not even running an exe file to claim it is a malware, trojan horse or worm to steal your money from your bank.
You will have to build the project from Github on your own before you can start mining it ( Too bad, if you are not a programmer here).
Like it or not, there are already miners with nodes all over the world mining Naira coin. Crypto currency are here to say.
Decentralized, transancton free finance is here to stay
