During the time of oil discovery, the leaders was mainly northerners who used the proceeds to enrich themselves, forgetting the people of the region the place oil was located in Nigeria.
Then the civil war broke out which was an attempt to proclaim the Republic of Biafra. On seeing this move, the army authorities created a giant range of states to weaken the movement.
This concept led to a bloody civil war, History had it that on 31 June 1967, the authorities of the Eastern place of Nigeria headed by Odumegbu Ojukwu announced the separation from Nigeria federation and grew to become the independent Republic of Biafra.
This was once rejected by the then Nigerian government headed by Yakubu Gowon which brought about the civil war.
One of the country’s that supported Nigeria at some point of the fighting was England who have been in serious opposition of the movement. They furnished the federal army with weapons and navy equipment from England.
And here Comes our main Objective
Countries that Supported the Biafra war
I know many people will be asking How many countries assisted Biafra? Well, it was once no surprise that most nations stood for the harmony of Nigeria while others stood for the Biafra struggle. For records, only a few stood for Nigeria in particular those who had vested interest in the oil.
Countries like the United Kingdom
the Soviet Union
the Arab countries
had been in aid of the team spirit of Nigeria.
and Israel supported the Biafran struggle.
And Biafra are Making Good Alliance with those countries.
These international Countries that supported Biafra, helped at some point of the combat with meals and sometimes with weapons.
Ojukwu installed oil extraction sufficient for the purchase of weapons and created a network of places of work on the recruitment of mercenaries.
The balance of energy was never in want of the Igbos or south south. In fact, the United Nations refused to recognize Biafra and in September 1968, the Organization of African Unity informed Biafra to abandon the idea of independence.
In August 2005, MASSOB leader made it clear that the Igbos wished to fight for sovereignty and independence which is non negotiable.
the Nigerian government made arrests of leader of MASSOB activists for participating in moves in support of the establishment of the Republic of Biafra. Some of them had been accused of treason.
This motion is especially popular amongst the youths, who were not involved in the civil war
South East Now Divided Between Biafra And 2023 Igbo Presidency – Opinion
Biafra or Presidency: One of the geopolitical zones in Nigeria that has complained about marginalisation is the southeastern part of the country.
It appears that the zone is now divided between Biafra and Igbo presidency in 2023.
There are people who believe that Biafra restoration is what is needed to gain prosperity for the people of southeast.
Recall that Nnamdi Kanu, who is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB has consistently say that it is either Biafra or nothing.
There are also politicians on the other hand who believe that Biafra agitations must stop so that the Igbo Presidency comes 2023 will be a reality. To them it is easier to get the presidency than to keep demanding for Biafra which is not feasible.
The people of the region are now divided between the two ideas. Some are saying that what they want is Biafra restoration while others especially the politicians, ohanaeze and some elders are Clamouring for Igbo Presidency which they believed that it’s their turn to rule Nigeria.
The challenge now is that who will unite the two ideas so as to arrived at a United vision?
Will Southeast get it right this time around and for the first time, emerge as president of Nigeria?
Some politicians like Orji Uzor Kalu has been speaking out on what he will do for the country if allowed to serve as president of Nigeria in 2023.
Breaking: “Ejemma” Will Be The Name Of Biafra Currency When Restored – Nnamdi Kanu
Nnamdi Kanu during his broadcast this morning made it clear that when Biafra is being restored, the name of the currency that we will be used will be called “Ejemma” And immediately he said this, there was a lot of questions going round on social media.
People were asking what this Ejemma which will be the Biafra currency means. They really wants to know if this currency has more weight and value more than Dollar, pound and other currencies including the Naira.
As it stands,they are still waiting for more explanations about this currency. And we believe that mazi Nnamdi Kanu will later explain deeply what this money which is going to be the Biafra currency is all about .
Be patient as more details is coming.
Biafra: “No going Back No Matter How Hard The Saboteurs May Try” – IPOB Market Zone 1, Obigbo LGA 3 Declares
Market Zone 1 Family in Obigbo Local Government Area 3 of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Igweocha, Biafraland, has unequivocally affirmed that there is absolutely no going back in their efforts to restore Biafra. This declaration was made during the visit of the LGA Executives to the zone on Sunday 23rd August, 2020.
The family members expressed great hope that Biafra was much closer than imagined, adding that her restoration as a sovereign nation can never be substituted even as the Nigerian state has turned Biafraland as it’s hunting/killing field.
In his address, the Obigbo Area 3 Coordinator, Mazi Eze Ndu, highlighted the fact that IPOB is a moving train and that any Biafran that has not yet embarked, has no other time for enlistment other than now. He further stated that Nigeria is an irredeemably failed state, with a restored Biafra as the only solution.
In her speech, the Zonal Women Coordinator, Mrs. Ezinne Chikezie Magboh affirmed that the fight for Biafra remains one for survival and should not be an avenue for intimidation. “We are women who are ready to die for Biafra”, she stated. The women leader, Mrs. Ezinne Cletus Nkechi on her part, clearly expressed her displeasure with the prevalent unbearable suffering of the Biafran people, maintaining that it was not an experience bargained for and so, must never ever be tolerated henceforth.
The gathering was further greeted with a dedication ceremony of twin babies the Biafran family was additionally blessed with. The entire event had colorful, peaceful and calm atmosphere with the Biafran, Israeli and United States flags flying above with adorable signature.
The meeting successfully came to a close amidst joy of fulfillment, to God’s glory.
