THE ECONOMIC STRANGULATION OF BIAFRALAND AND THE DECEIT OF IGBO PRESIDENCY




THE ECONOMIC STRANGULATION OF BIAFRALAND AND THE DECEIT OF IGBO PRESIDENCY 

In a desperate bid by the Nigerian State to completely wreck the economic developmental growth of the indigenous Biafran population who are forcefully caged in the Nigerian contraption, the federal government has relentlessly being churning out despotic policies aimed totally and permanently, at mortgaging the future of Biafra citizens. Though some questions could prop up regarding what the Governors within the South-East and South-South regions are realistically doing to effect positive changes in the lives of the people but instead, these self-serving political merchants have surreptitiously been aiding the Nigerian oppressive government to kill, maim and subject their people to misery and strangulation.

Words will not suffice to fully describe the level of the dastardly effects the obnoxious economic and political policies of the Nigerian government, have meted on Biafrans over the years. This desperate strangulation drive cuts across every segment of the citizens' well-being including increase in taxation which is much more than what obtains in other parts of the country. Others are total shutdown of airports and seaports, dilapidated roads, failed healthcare delivery systems, deliberate destruction of indigenous livelihood, vegetation and aquatic lives through persistent oil spillages, militarisation of the entire regions and suffocation/denial of freedom vis-a-vis exercise of fundamental human rights.

It is shamefully disappointing that there is no existence of a single Federal Government presence in Biafraland as there is absolutely no genuine leadership in whatever shape, with the willingness to exert the needed pressure on the Nigerian government to accede to the just demands of developmental projects that will impact positively on the life of the citizenry.

The disgusting mediocrity of the so-called intelligentsia cum the hypocritical Igbo leadership are not only demeaning but treacherous. These opportunists are grossly unperturbed and view the demands for the well-being of their people as entirely immaterial. They instead are hell-bent, aiding the oppressive Nigerian government in the destruction of the same people they are supposed to protect. There is invariably no other region in Nigeria that is exempted from having either seaports, dryports or airports except Biafraland where they daily harvest the resources that sustain the powers that be and their respective enclaves. The evil policy of enslavement and subjugation has so meticulously been implemented, has grievously alienated the people from federal government's investments.

How then on earth and even in the face of this level of institutionalized injustice, could individuals of such a low esteem and substance, be calling for Igbo presidency? What really do they have to offer now to lift Biafrans, out of the pit of decades of misery and servitude? What hope have the people, getting their welfare bettered within their indigenous territories? These snitches shamelessly serve as agents of shrewd Nigerian arrangement and tools of the oppressive Islamic caliphate. The purported Igbo presidency is a hoax floated for deception and must be completely rejected by the Biafra indigenous population in order to preserve their future and their land.

Furthering their tyrannical agenda of subjugation, strangulation and penury, the Nigerian government in criminal connivance with the Fulani caliphated stooges in Government Houses across Biafraland, have succeeded in creating the worst form of ethnic despotism through the imposition of high tax rates on commuters to the tune of seventy seven (77) toll gates within the region alone while other regions of Arewa North with vast land and Oduduwaland combined, have less number of toll gates and tax cuts. The implication therefore is that Biafrans have to pay for the lives they live. This is the definitely the set time for us to collectively defend our future as a people from the grip of strangulation and imposition of orchestrated penury.

These must not be allowed. not now, not ever!

RUGA SETTLER COLONIALISM; THE IRISH HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE

Between 1536 to 1691, the Republic of Ireland was conquered and annexed into the United Kingdom by the King of England as part of the colonies of the English. The Irish were a different Ethnic group completely different from the English in culture, language and ancestry. Even though the Irish and the English had the same religion which was Christianity they belonged to different christian sects.  The Irish were Catholics while the English were  Protestants.
The first thing that was done by the English to make sure that the conquest of Ireland was permanent was to import Settlers from England and Scotland who were majorly Protestants into Ireland. They gave the new settlers one fifth of Irish land. When the Irish people revolted, the English crown responded with force and awarded four-fifth of the land to the Scottish and English settlers. This made many Irish peasants to migrate to America, many became destitute and many others died of plagues and starvation.
It was not until 1922 th…

IPOB PRESS RELEASE 23/09/2019

We understand and respect the legitimate yearning of the public to know what transpired between IPOB delegation to the United Nations in Geneva led by our able leader and prophet Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the staff of the various agencies of the UN we met and had fruitful discussions with. Without divulging very sensitive details that may undermine confidence and future discussions such as the one we just had, it will be prudent to say at this time that the meetings went very well and in some instances surpassed our expectations.

It can be said that what transpired between IPOB delegation and the UN official is a matter of utmost trust and confidentiality governed by mutual respect. But let say this if it will help: our case is now before the various specialised UN agencies or working groups with specialty in various specific monumental human rights abuses systematically perpetrated against Biafrans and other vulnerable individuals and groups in Nigeria.
