 Did you see the rush by South-East Governors’ forum to debunk the report attributed to them blaming the killing of unarmed IPOB members on the federal government? The Chairman of the cowards and Governor of Ebonyi state, David Umahi, was quick to exonerate himself and his colleagues from “whatever politics of bitterness in any part of the country.” Hahaha! I cannot help but laugh at these fellows who ought to be the voice of their people but are in connivance with the oppressors.

So the extra judicial violence and killings against their people is not any concern of theirs? Logically, who is to be blamed for the massacre of unarmed Biafrans by the Nigeria security forces if not the federal government from whom they receive directives? Why are the South-East governors too afraid to speak in defense of their own people? They have remained silent as villages and towns in their domain are continually invaded by Hausa/Fulani Muslim stock soldiers. They have also shut their eyes to the numerous roadblocks and checkpoints in their states by the Nigeria military and police which have become a beehive of extortion and harassment against their own people. Their docility over the attack by Fulani herdsmen across the region is shameful as they prefer to cry and call for prayers and fasting instead of enacting laws to curtail the heinous activities of the blood suckers.

The stance of the Indigenous People of Biafra led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to boycott every Nigeria organized elections in Biafra land has moved them into having a closed door meeting with the IPOB leader. Not forgetting that their personal interest is more important to them than that of those who voted them into power. Even the reports of Amnesty International did not move their consciousness in seeking redress for their people violently imprisoned and murdered by the Nigeria security forces. Instead they are always willing to be stooges used in covering up every heinous crime perpetrated against their people.

I have always watched with keen interest to see any of the northern politicians who is seeking election in their respective state visiting either a religious or traditional leader in the South-east for support but I am yet to see none. Now I want you to follow up on the Igbo politicians seeking elective position as they will flock to the north region to pay homage to Emirs and other elites. What is baffling is the urge for them to satisfy the feeling of the Hausa/Fulani oligarchy to the detriment of their own people. These hypocritic Igbo politicians are ready to sit on the floor like little children just to gain favor and endorsement from the Islamic caliphate.

Most of the Igbo politicians have feigned ignorance over the extra judicial violence and killings against their people but you will recall that the Hausa/Fulani politicians were quick to speak against the former Army chief Ihejirika for sending soldiers after the BokoHaram terrorists. General Ihejirika was accused of killing their kinsmen because he intensified the onslaught against members of the terrorist group. The call for the removal of Ihejirika became too vocal and former president Jonathan was pressured to retire him.

The politicians in the South East cannot defend the rights of their people neither can they bring forth development. These sycophantic Igbo politicians have looked on while their region is marginalized and underdeveloped. The Igbos make up the bulk of importers and exporters in Nigeria but there is no working seaport in the region rather the Port Harcourt and Calabar seaports were sold out to former Vice President Abubakar Atiku and they are now being solely utilized for Aliko Dangote’s businesses. A functional international airport is only on the pages of newspapers and does not exist in the South East region. Muhammadu Buhari prefers to link railway lines direct to his hometown Daura that contributes nothing to the country’s coffer and deliberately ignoring the already existing ones in the South East to rot away. Infrastructures in the South East are largely executed by private individuals in the South East not minding the federal government efforts to always scuttle it.

The Igbo politicians have continually shown that they are not in control of governance in their region if elected but are always in consultation with the northern oligarchy. It is terrible they prefer the peanuts been shared to them as allocation and will never want to stir the anger of their masters in the caliphate. The call for self-determination by the people of Biafra is seen as an affront to the politicians whom are aware that their evil will get exposed. The Igbo politicians must understand that their unbridled romance between them and the northern Islamic caliphate will no longer hold water against the people of Biafra. Biafrans have made a choice which is the restoration of the sovereign state of Biafra and it is either the politicians’ stands with their people or stand alone.
