Ojukwu’s meeting with Buhari, unverified and Comical – IPOB

The Indigenous Peo­ple of Biafra (IPOB) yesterday disowned Nigeria’s President, Gen­eral Muhammadu Bu­hari, on his statement that late Biafran leader, Gen­eral Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, agreed with him on one indivisible entity called Nigeria.

IPOB in a statement made in Awka by its Media and Publicity Sec­retary, Comrade Emma Powerful, said the state­ment was unverified, adding that it was comi­cal.

The IPOB statement reads: ‘’We the Indig­enous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its leader­ship worldwide under the command and lead­ership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the prophet of our time, wish to bring to the attention of Ni­gerians and the world at large, the unfounded statement credited to the Nigerian president, Muhammdu Buhari during his latest comi­cal nationwide broad­cast about discussions he had with the late Biafran leader, General Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, in 2003 at his home town in Daura, Katsina State about Nigeria remaining one.

“Muhammadu Buhari claimed in his three min­utes broadcast that the late Biafran General and war leader Chukwueme­ka Odumegwu Ojukwu gave him assurances that Nigeria must remain one indivisible entity. In Bu­hari’s view, his unverified, unsubstantiated discus­sions with Ojukwu in his Daura village means that we Indigenous People of Biafra cannot demand for our inalienable right under the principles of self-determination in or­der to seek our exit from the fraudulent British manufactured colony we know today as Nigeria.

    To be realistic history should teach us a little bit. In 2003, OBJ, the incumbent president, from west won the election people considered to have been rigged. PMB from north had 32%, an equivalent to hausa/fulani population; OJUKWU, who sacrifice his family wealth and entire career as a senior military officer to Biafra war, could not get up to 4%. Note that ibos are up to 25% of our population. Does it mean that the north voted and defended it ( their votes); while the ibos allowed the ruling party to rig election in the east. In 2007, ACN TINUBU (who has not contributed to the west what OJUKWU has done to the east) was able to have 5 governors, 15 senators and many reps; APGA OJUKWU was having 1 governor and 2 reps. Before he died he even beg anambarians to vote for Peter Obi saying “vote for him, this is my last wish” on gubernatorial campaign billboards. The fact is that any agitation not characterised by unity and love is bound to fail. This referendum IPOB is asking for might result to a major face off, which is BIA vs FRA. That is wealthy ibos living outside the east (the ezendigbos in every villages in Nigeria) would be ready to die for non-actualisation of biafra because they don’t want to be foreigners. That time quit notice will turn to xenophobe. Let there be true consultation among them (ibos) before referendum to avoid blood shed among the true children of Jacob. For OJUKWU to contest for an elective post shows that he believed in the unity of Nigeria. For an opposition candidate to meet another another opposition candidate in an election period (2003) preaching national unity could be true, due to possible emergence of post election war that might affect ibos living outside the east especially in the north. In my own assessment, GEN OJUKWU met PMB. I believe he reaffirmed his commitment to national unity even if it was not from his mind but to once again save the lives of his brothers who did not honour him enough when he was alive like what they are doing to his concept (BIAFRA) after his demise. God bless Nigeria.
