Sit-At-Home: You Won’t Cage Igbos For One Week – Ohanaeze Tells IPOB

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, on Sunday, kicked against the one-week sit-at-home declared by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

DAILY POST reported that the pro-Biafra group had threatened a one-week sit-at-home if their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, was not released forthwith.

The declaration, targeted at the November 6 Anambra election, has been attracting wild condemnation.

In a statement by the Secretary-General of the Chidi Ibeh-led apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, he said Ndigbo should not obey the order this time.

He said, “any declaration that unleashes untold hardship, leads to the collapse of commercial and industrial activities, boycott of Anambra elections, and interrupts the academic calendar in the Southeastern states is nonsensical, absurd, and anti-Igbo agenda, for the enemy’s amusement.”

While describing the order as the enslavement of Ndigbo, Isiguzoro said it was time “for the Igbo to rise to the occasion and end being trampled with orders from overseas by those without any investments in the South-East”.

He added that “IPOB should discern that there was self-determination struggle in Africa before now. Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in jail and never in the history of the movement against Apartheid was starvation, anguish, and catastrophe unleashed on Black South Africans by ANC.

“It is impulsive and reckless to order Ndigbo to observe one-week sit-at-home when it’s obvious that Nnamdi Kanu will not be released without the approval of courts.

“IPOB should revisit and nullify the one-week sit-at-home or they will likely lose the support of the Ndigbo henceforth, Ndigbo must participate in Anambra election and nothing should stop it”.

He cautioned that such orders if implemented would give a particular political party an edge in the election.

2023: Go prostrate to Nnamdi Kanu, we can’t be deceived – Northern coalition replies Ezeife

The Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG, has dismissed a remark by Chukwuemeka Ezeife, former Governor of Anambra State, that the southeast is prepared to kneel and prostrate to beg other regions to support their presidential ambition in 2023.

CNG said Igbo leaders should prostrate to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, rather than deceive other regions.

Spokesman of the group, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, said the North would not be deceived by Ezeife’s remark.

In a statement he signed, Suleiman said the southeast are not “sincere and should not be trusted” due to past antecedents.

According to Suleiman: “Igbos have, by their conduct, denied themselves the opportunity to be trusted with power in the near future.

“It is deceptive for them to make such overtures after having encouraged and supported Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and the atrocities committed against other Nigerians, particularly northerners by his IPOB.

“If the Igbo must prostrate to anyone, they should prostrate to Kanu as the North has come of age and shall not be deceived or fooled any longer.”

Case Between FG And Nnamdi Kanu, FG And Bandits Is Pure Nepotism – Ohanaeze Chieftain

A former National Publicity Secretary of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chuks Ibegbu, has accused the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government of treating bandits with kid gloves.

Ibegbu said the Buhari government was more concerned with the prosecution of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB, and other pro-Biafra than dealing with the menace of banditry.

The chieftain was reacting to the declaration of bandits as terrorists by an Abuja Federal High Court.

Justice Taiwo Taiwo had declared banditry as an act of terrorism in all parts of Nigeria.

The Judge also outlawed the activities of some groups linked with acts of banditry and declared bandit activities as acts of terrorism.

Justice Taiwo, in a ruling on an ex-parte application filed by the federal government specifically declared the activities of the “Yan Bindiga Group and the Yan Ta’adda Group and other similar groups” in any part of the country, especially in the North West and North Central geo-political zones as “acts of terrorism and illegality”.

Reacting, Ibegbu said the decision of the Federal Government to treat banditry and Boko Haram with kid gloves is not the best way to move Nigeria forward.

According to Ibegbu: “It’s obvious that the Federal government is treating the issue of banditry with kid gloves and it’s very clear to everybody.

“Federal Government is treating them (bandits) with levity and is more concerned with Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB, and pro-Biafra agitators. Any little issue in the Southeast would be taken with all seriousness, but bandits, kidnappers, marauders, and Boko Haram are treated with kid gloves.

“This is not how to move a country forward or how to unite the country. Everybody should be treated equally.

“Those agitating are patriots. If you are agitating for something and you are not a bandit, killer, but pushing for fairness; you should not be seen as a terrorist.

See Why Igbos May Not Produce President In 2023 – Bishop Azubuike

The Presiding Bishop, House of God Int’l Church, Athan Azubuike has claimed the Igbos will always play second fiddle and may never produce the president of Nigeria even when they have all it takes to lead the country in 2023.

The cleric said this at an event for young clergy in Owerri.

He insisted that the average Igbo man is a trader and not a politician as they do not have the skills to mobilise people at the grassroots

He said,” One thing about an Igbo man is that an average Igbo person is a trader only interested in profit-making, we are not interested in working. We are not interested in the grassroots. Once it’s a few months to elections, Igbo politicians will start visiting churches in remote villages, that is the sense of a trader, not a politician.”

”Let me be very frank with all on why Igbos may never produce a president but play second fiddle by asking who is coming out in Igbo land? You’ll tell me it’s Rochas Okorocha, Anyim Pius Anyim, Sam Ohuabunwa among others but since Pius became the Senate President, how many times have you seen him and others in Imo State. The presidency is not a local government election .”

He said,” Today, people are talking about the 2023 presidency and I ask those Igbo politicians claiming to be interested in the race what have they been doing to galvanize the grassroots.”

He further queried,” Why is it that an Igbo man is only interested in meeting people only when it’s a few months to any election. It’s arrant nonsense. If the program organized by Mezie Imo Clergy Forum today was held in Yoruba land or the North, this place will be filled with great personalities but here the reverse is the case”

” A good politician works before he shows his ambition. A good politician works before galvanizing for election, that is why I said an Igbo man is a trader, not a politician.”

“As a presidential aspirant, you need to move around, increase your horizon and coordinate with other zones even before now.”
