A foremost socio-cultural youth organization of Igbo extraction, Igbo Youth Assembly (IYA) has called on various Igbo groups clamouring for secession from Nigeria to stop their agitation and embrace activities that sustain national unity and peace.
The call was contained in a statement jointly signed by the President-General, Ifeanyi Nwaudunna and Secretary-General, Casmir Irekamba after their virtual general assembly and made available to journalists in Owerri, yesterday.
The group accused some Igbo leaders of being selfish, myopic; and misguiding the youths into agitating for succession which according to them was not in the best interest of the Igboland.
The statement reads in part, “Nigeria as a nation and country is better united and remains as one indivisible entity. If divided or disintegrated, will lose its glory of diversity, economic, political-miltary- numerical-technical power and strength”.
“It is very unfortunate that this misguided agitation from these Igbo groups has adversely affected the peace-loving and hardworking Igbos doing their legitimate businesses all over Nigeria. So, of what basis will any well-meaning Igbo person call for secession and disintegration of Nigeria”.
It continued, “We condemn strongly the actions of those myopic and selfish “old brigade” leaders who are fraternizing with those against the unity, peace and the general interest of Nigeria in the guise of Igbo marginalization.
“What Igbos need at this moment is to strategize politically towards 2023; form strong alliances across the North and South to be fully involved in National engagements”.
The group furthered, “the threat by IPOB, MASSOB, others and their sponsors on secession are not in the best interest of Igbo people; hence such agitation for secession must be jettisoned forthwith.
“No true Igbo leader or patriot will clamour for Nigeria disintegration, but would rather seek for a united prosperous Nigeria.
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.
