Guys,

I am 1million % sure that if a referendum on secession is approved today by the FG, the Igbo people will vote to remain in Nigeria. I can bet my life on this. In short, you will see the rich ones amongst them spending so much money to campaign for not leaving Nigeria. What do you all think?

Igbos don't really want to go. That is why they couple the Niger Delta impossible annexation into Biafa. Igbos and Foolanis are too much invested in One Nigeria. One way or the other, Southern Nigeria is breaking away from your medieval Foolani misrule.

The FG has no authority to approve referendum. It has to be written in the constitution first, before it can be legal.
There is no legally binding constitution dummy. The 1999 military decree is a forgery.

Asaba Man Responds On Facebook To Asaba Is Igbo Claims

Asaba Inlaw: "In This Whole World You Couldn’t Find Anyone To Marry But An Igbo"


Short story: One of my earliest and most persistent memories is this - near my village, 1 kilometer from Asaba, was a camp where people lived.
Who are they I asked - “Wa bu Ndigbo” I was told. Translation: “They are Igbos”.
I was confused. Aren’t we Igbos, but I said nothing.
Another occasion I heard some commotion in the direction of the camp. Oh don’t be worried I was told. They are Igbos. Again so thought but we are igbos!

Fast forward 3 decades.
A friend of mine from Aba who married from Asaba, over a beer told me “I can’t get over Asaba people. During my native law, my wife’s people kept abusing her in the same language I spoke. They kept saying ‘so in this whole world, you couldn’t find anyone to marry but an Igbo?’”
These are true accounts.
People from my area… even the indigenes of ONITSHA (I’ve been told) consider themselves Not Igbo.
I grew up seeing my people refer to others as “Those Igbo people”.
I have just learnt that the phrase “Igbo enwere Eze” was coined by core Igbos to separate themselves from the Onitsha indigenes…
Following that logic, Asaba nwere eze .... kedụ ka ọ ga-esi bụrụ igbo?
ka anyi biri n’udo nwanne m nwoke
m zuru ikpe m

It’s not an issue to be swept under the carpet. We need to consider it seriously.

Just because everyone in America speaks English doesn’t change their ancestry (some are of German, Italian, Russian, African, Chinese ancestry...).
Ancestry can only be determined scientifically by DNA analysis. My sister discovered she has ancestors from Mali, Senega... of course!! The river Niger flows through those nations before it passes the shores of my village which sits on the West Bank of the Niger net Asaba.

Bottom line, you cannot teach a man how to write with his left hand in old age.
The real issue is why so many Igbo speaking people reject the idea they’re Igbo. (Like some Egyptians in an interview I watched - who can’t understand why they’re considered Africans at all!).
Let’s have an academic discussion why!
We may learn valuable lessons.

Most border local governments do not compose of a single dominant ethnicity. It will amount to perpetual crisis for anyone to drag such into any union other than that with other minorities. Such is Anioma and Obigbo.

It is foolish to be forcing people to be with you.

I have been telling my brothers here that we should be OK with South East and our people and land in Benue. Whenever I say this they will say I am Afonja or Aboki.


Many of you may thinking why must this Niger Delta man is say South South, when South South includes various Igbo speaking people.

Let me tell you, whether you like it or not those people are not Igbo.
We have received so many insults from different ethnic groups in NG for trying to convince these people to see us as their brothers and blood, but they keep on denying us.
Why don't we forget them.

There is nothing hidden under the sun. Their Igbonese will be revealed one day. And the same way Black Americans are taking DNA test and trying to know more about us Africans is the same way these people will knock on our door.

Don't kill yourself or waste your time. Every truth in this world will be revealed.

Forget about them.



Lastly, it is common sense that before you rescue someone, you must first of all rescue yourself. We haven't rescued ourselves from NG first, how can we carry people that don't want us, to be free.

I am an Mbaise man. For those that will start saying Afonja or Aboki.

Come to those areas and tell them they're not Igbos. Even the Governor of delta state in 2019 made the study of igbo in delta schs mandatory....
You can take the Ikas anyways. But pls do tell them to drop the igbo language and culture ok?

Igbos might have been a majority in terms of number of people, but when it came to political strength, igbos have been the minority of the minorities.

Igbos should keep quiet when other political entities are speaking.

There was no Igbo nation in the past. If it existed, where was its military?

What territory was its military responsible for protecting?

Without territorial integrity, there is no nation and this historical "no nation" situation was brought about about by the fact that Igbo people did not have it in them to foster political structures beyond the village or clan levels.

That is why you never heard of the igbo military or anything of that sought. But you would hear of many inter-village wars (or inter-clan wars) between Igbo settlements. That was the reach of their capacity to create political units.

So when we ancient kindgoms with dynasties spanning centuries speak, I expect igbos to be quiet. Igbos are the real minorities ethnically, when it comes to things that matter. And maybe that is why they relentlessly misbehave all over Nigeria. Civilisation does not run deep in them hence the complete non-existence of ethnic decorum.

You lied and tell your dad he needs to retrace his ancestral history oncemore. Anioma has nothing to do with biafra and will never have anything to do with such faceless, derogatory and evil-prone terrorist organisation. Has it occur to you what it be like under these zealous, callous and greedy people calling for biafra? You'll be a first class minority and will be treated with despair and hate. You and your dad better have a rethink cause it's better felt than explained.

Nnamdi Kanu Has United The Niger Delta People by spearman(m): 3:14pm On Jun 10
The notion of the minority tribe of the Bight of Benin and the Niger Delta forming a federal union as appealing as it has been was always difficult to pursue. The Niger Delta is made up of small nationalities that were easy for the Nigerian state with the help of their two southern neighbors will isolate and destroy any agitation. And so the strategy became to wait for a group like the Yorubas to awaken and make their way out of Nigeria as the Yorubas by language geography and culture formed the most natural country of all those in Nigeria and have been hurt the deepest as their whole territory has been invaded and occupied by all others. So the strategy was that of watch and wait.

And then came Nnamdi Kanu and his map of Biafra. The innitial Niger Delta reaction was to ignore it as it was too insanely preposterous as not to pay it any attention. You see many outside of Igbos never thought anyone was even going to give that hideous map a second look. Not Biafrans. They immediately started salivating at the prospect of Igbo authority over a large expanse of LAND. Niger Deltans were awakened to a full occupation as this expansionist land grab took on a life of its own.

It got worse Kanu screamed and yelled insults all day long to any who dare protest his dictat. Kanu who all along had been seen as an Igbo problem now became a Niger Delta irritant. It was an insult to them to have this strange creature speak for them in such absolute and condescending voice. A lie told often becomes truth seems to be the Igbo strategy here. Though it makes no sense to anyone as to how they think they can manipulate the millions of people that make up the Niger Delta into the Biafran plantation they pessist in this laughable and amateurish schemes.

"What are Biafrans doing in Warri, Ubiaja, Agbor, Asaba, Eket, Uyo, Calbar, Port Harcourt, Ogoni, Yenogoa? What is this madnesses?". And so ended all arguments about strategy and form. Every nationality within the region bonded instantly and resolve to form a united federation in the Niger Delta, come what may.

The Niger Delta have arisen with one voice saying, "We are not Biafra. We have formed a federation of our own. Thank you Nnamdi Kanu for uniting and focusing us. Now run along and leave us alone. Good luck to you and the true South East Biafra. We hope to be good neighbors".

Igbos can claim the credit for creating the Niger Delta Republic. Thank you Nnamdi Kanu.

Yorubas are not like Biafrans. They are not forcing anyone. Unlike the Biafrauud Nnamdi Kanu, onece Proffesor Banji Akintoye sensed their was no uniformity of opinions amonst the Itshekiris and the Akokos, he urged caution on the part of Yoruba agitators. Yorubas are not expansionary unlike Igbos. They have even set a high bar for the Yorubas in Kwara and Kogi must meet to be part of Yoruba Nation. Whereas the Igbos want to drag people who barely tolerate them and hardly can stand them into Biafrauud. Yorubas are Omoluabis.
