Biafra, Buhari and The Easter Day Rising (Part 2) - Femi Fani-Kayode

Thankfully under President Goodluck Jonathan the Igbo managed to do better than at any other time in our history. As a matter of fact this was so much the case that Nigerians from other parts of the country, particularly the Yoruba and the Hausa-Fulani, often sulked about it and openly complained.
Jonathan had a soft spot for the Igbo and I have little doubt that that partiality was borne out of his innate sensitivity to their historical trials and tribulations. It may have been sub-conscious but I have no doubt that it was there.
Unlike others he viewed the Igbo as equals and regarded them as human beings: he treated them with respect and decorum and he gave them their due. Consequently it was under Jonathan that Lt. General Azubuike Ihejirika the first Igbo Chief of Army Staff since the civil war was appointed.
 
It was also under Jonathan that Senator Pius Anyim, the first Igbo Secretary to the Federal Government of Nigeria since independence was appointed.
 
Sadly when President  Muhammadu Buhari was elected into office all that changed and eastern stars stopped shining. Under him the persecution, marginalization, humiliation, detention, state-sponsored executions and assassinations and sectarian and ethnic-motivated murder of the Igbo has reached pre-civil war proportions.
 
To add to that the Igbo have been treated with more disdain and contempt by the Buhari administration than any other government in our entire history. Permit me to share juat one example of that here.
 
A few days ago hordes of AK-47-wielding Fulani herdsmen and militants attacked some farms in Enugu state. Fearing that the Agatu treatment may be meted out to them and in order to protect their lives, their families, their property, their livestock and their crops from the murderous vandals and marauders the Igbo farmers organised themselves and fought back gallantly.
 
Consequently there were casualties on both sides. Instead of the police to come in to apprehend the Fulani aggressors and raiders, seize their weapons and bring them to justice they arrested 76 Igbo farmers. Up until today those farmers are in police custody and their families have had no access to them.
 
As far as I am aware not one Fulani militant or herdsman was questioned over this incident let alone disarmed, caitioned or arrested. As unbelievable as it may appear this patterm of behaviour by the security agencies has been the norm throughout the Middle Belt and the south since President Buhari has come to power.
 
They have displayed great reluctance to protect the indigenous people and farmers of those two regions from the pillaging, killing and raping that the Fulani herdsmen always subject them to.
 
It is also instructive to note that the political leaders of the igbo nation appear to have been so intimidated by this trend of events that none of them has spoken out against the abduction of the Enugu farmers or condemned the barbarous action of the Fulani herdsmen that raided their farms.
 
As a matter of fact the only two politicians in the entire country that have publicly expressed concern about the safety, whereabouts and plight of the 76 Igbo farmers are both from the south west and they are Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state and yours truly. Fayose did so in an advert in the newspapers a few days ago and I did so in my column last week titled "Of Tyrants, Martyrs and Heroes (Part 2)".
 
Everyone else, including the Igbo Governors. Senators, Ministers, elders and leaders of their socio-political groups has maintained a curious, submissive and stoic silence on this matter. I guess that is a sign of the times that we are living in and I cannot blame them. Given the circumstances and the obvious constraints of their political leaders and elders why would the younger generation of the Igbo not agitate and fight for the establisment of Biafra?
 
This is especially so given the fact that it is self- evident that under the leadership of President Buhari igbos, and indeed other southerners, are not just being subjected to violence in the north but they are also being attacked by northerners down in their own states in the south.
 
Southern leaders are expected to live with this, accept it as the norm and most importantly they are not expected to defend themselves, defend their people or complain about the atrocities that they are being subjected to in their own land.
 
This hardly kindles hope for the future of our nation and it certainly does not engender confidence in our country or enhance national unity. It is clear that the contempt with which our government views the people of the south and particularly the igbo is obvious and glaring.
 
President Buhari himself, during one of his interviews with Al Jazeera and during the course of an earlier interview with Nigeria's NTA, displayed that contempt very eloquently when, in answer to a question about Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of IPOB's prolonged detention and the increasingly aggressive agitation for Biafra, he asked rather brusquely "what exactly do the Igbo want?"
 
When he was told that the Igbo felt marginalised by his government he went further on to ask "who is marginalizing who?"
 
Again before millions of viewers from all over the world President Buhari refused to watch the footage of the extra-judicial killing of some IPOB youths by his security forces when he was asked to do so during his infamous interview with Al Jazeera.
 
In that same interview he went on to dismiss the legitimate aspirations of and agitation by millions of young people from the eastern part of our country for the creation of Biafra in just one sentence.
 
He said that if they had any complaints they should agitate for more states in the east instead of yearning for their own country. 
 
One wonders how state creation can appease a generation of angry young Igbos who genuinely believe that their people are being systematically killed off and that they have been turned into slaves and second class citizens by Nigeria.
 
And this coming from a man who has refused to appoint one single Igbo into the Presidency and who believes that he has done them a favor by appointing five Igbo Ministers into his cabinet.
 
He forgets that the constitution of our country compels him to appoint at least one Minister per state and that whether he likes it or not he must appoint those five because the Igbos control five states in the Federation each of which must be represented in the cabinet.
 
It may not be fashionable to say it publicly but the truth is that the Igbo are virtually an endangered species under President Buhari's government.
 
They have been robbed of their dignity, their sense of self-worth, their self-esteem and their self-respect by our government and the Igbo youth particularly do not believe that they have much of a future left in Nigeria. That is why the agitation for Biafra has reached fever pitch among them.
 
Whatever anyone feels about Biafra the fact of the matter is as follows: as my friend and brother Chief Orji Uzor Kalu, the former Governor of Abia state, said a few days ago, "the igbo have not been fully integrated back into Nigeria 46 years after the civil war".
 
The truth is that Nigeria is not working for most of the ethnic nationalities and everyone knows it. And as long as those that hold power at the center today remain in power things will not get any better.
 
As a matter of fact as long as they are in power things will get worse. In Buhari's Nigeria if you are not from the core north and if you are not a Muslim you do not have much hope of getting to the top or achieving your full potentials.
 
That is "chanji" for you and that is Buhari's mission and vision. We said it during the Presidential campaign but regrettably few would listen. Now the same people that would not listen are regretting it bitterly and they are saying that we were right.
 
In Buhari's Nigeria it is one law for the oppressed and another for the ''Born to Rule" oppressor. Whether we wish to admit it or not that is the reality and everyone knows it.
 
There is also a well-orchestrated attempt to Islamise our country and suppress the practice of Christianity in some parts within our shores. Kaduna state is an example and what is going on there is nothing but a test run for the rest of the country. .
 
Yet the truth is that everything has its expiry date including religious bigotry, bondage and slavery. The oppressor often forgets that the future belongs to the oppressed.
 
The Irish experience and the beautiful people of Eire and the Emerald Isle have taught us that. Far away London in merry England was once their capital yet today it is their very own Dublin. If God can do it for them He can also do it for us. It is just a matter of time.
 
Some will disagree with the contents of this contribution whilst others will hate me for writing it. To such troubled souls I recommend the words of Albert Einstein. He said:
 
“Great spirits have always encountered opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly".
 
I need say no more.

I wonder when Fani Kayode has suddenly turned to be the mouth piece of the igbos. If he knew about all these why did he not suggest so when he was at the corridor of power.Remember that igbos cannot forget in a haste all the hate comments he has made against the same igbos he is now claiming to love more. Also let he point out clearly what Jonathan did for igbos that stands as an iroko. I can only remember the 419 Niger bridge he promised in his ist term that the site was never cleared. Please Fani Kayode igbos don't need your attention seeking defense.Your hate speeches in the past can't be forgotten overnight.

I am a Yoruba man and just wonder how femi has become igbo according to is 4th to the last paragragh....all this talk about murder reaching the pre civil war level is an amazing twisting of the truth.

Majority of our Igbo elders are not sincere. In fact the Clan is not united. Until we have a sincere and united Igbo I'm afraid nothing meaningful can be done. An Igbo man/woman will do everything in his/her power to pull down a fellow Igbo person or will not even help at all just so that he will be the only one reining, a Yoruba or Hausa person will not do that. Some of our elders even came out to say that we have not been marginalized, is that not madness?

May the Lord Almighty protect and strenghten you and Governor Ayo Fayose,as long as Nigeria is concern now, after my late odumegwu ojukwu, you and Governor Fayose remains my hero. You are men of valour,men of great integrity.Fealess lions,inshort it is well with you, your family and that of Governor Fayose.As a matter of facts, to me, I feel most of our igbo political leaders are stooges.They are their for their harlot wives and childern.You can see the number one sabotuer,Rochas Okorocha, we are from the same state.We the people of Oweeri zone brought him out to battle with Ohakim,the then former governor and gave him all the support to propelled him into power,but he turned instantly as a viper snake and start biting all Imo people,but for the fact,that most of them believe money,they all went to sleep and allow him to be doing all he is doing and going free. Same to Most people of Anambra States,at least without being told you and I knows that the Anambrians and the head of the igbos luike they claim,but the same tribe in igbo land have converted every igbo people to cowardice,due to their stupid investment into the lands of igbo enemies.They have invested so much to the north,to an extent,they are sponsoring Buhari to kick against the freedom of the igbos. They did this during the civil war and they are still doing it now,but the God of isrealite that we are will put this judas to book including their wealth and families.Buhari amd his Fulani people, you and I knows that these people are not Nigeerians,rather from Chad and niger,but they settled here through their great grand fathers.So doing anything against the southern Nigerians to bring us down is not a surprise. Even the aboki from Niger,that is Niger Republic.If you want to but a satchet of milk from him that worths N10, he will sell his N20 and he bought his wares from the same market where thye owners of the country bought theirs,compare that.Buhari,Sanusi emir, Al rufia-governor, we watch their role.Obasanjo too, we watch his role,supporting the fulani or northern people to the detriment of his people,but God is watching.I pray this short prayer,God anihilate every Ibo man that is up there watching what our enemies are doing all these to us,.Destroy the lives of the evil people from southern nigeria,that purported the exit of Goodluck from power bring in this evil president that hates the igbos IN JESUS NAME.AMEN!!!!PERRY MARTINS

Phil Martens said...

May God bless you Femi. Its no wonder that Buhari who commitet genocide aginst my people in Owerri during the biafra war is continuing his orgy of violence against the Ibos. Until the actors of the Nigerian civil war dissappear from the surface of this earth Nigeria will never have peace because they have blood in their hands. The spirit of those childeren they starved to death will continue to hunt them.
Those who voted for Buhari are myopic. They forgot how he ruled Nigeria as a military. Suddenlly he became a wolf in a sheep skin and people voted him into power.

The only crime that we Ibos commited is that anthing we lay our hands on prosper. Our ingenuinty is unequalled, We didnt kill anyone, we didnt steal anyones property.
Here in Europe people like Buhari cant even be a city chairman.

Fellow Igbo,rejoice and be glad in the LORD, obey his words,He is watching and waiting.Stop selling your right and gemeration because of personal agrandizements.

ColdFlame said...

THANK YOU FEMI BUT......

With all due respect sir you are wrong on several fronts:
First, Jonathan's Presidency was borne out of special circumstances that most uninformed Igbo latched unto in the misplaced hope that their Eldorado had finally come. The man craftily keyed into that narrative by hastily becoming 'Azikiwe' and loudly emphasizing the so called 'bond' between the Igbo and South Southerners. Ihejirika, Anyim Pius and whatever else he did along those lines was just him being a politician courting the bloc Igbo vote for a second term. The vast majority fell for it, snubbed the heck out of Buhari and the APC and the rest is history...

Second, it is not out of cowardice that Igbo leaders have yet to nor is it bravery on the part of you and Fayose to have spoken concerning the so called Fulani herdsmen incidents in Enugu. The Police have made arrests and are investigating, hellooo?
Certainly, the law cannot be seen to be working only when your good self is cleared of corruption charges by the courts sir, can it?
As for Ayo Fayose, every discerning Nigerian knows he cannot have another tenure as Ekiti governor, having done so twice now, so his new found loud mouthedness and unfettered buffoonery masked as bravery can easily be put in perspective.

Three, as an Igbo myself I beg to disagree with the assertion that the coming to power of Buhari has robbed me of dignity and self esteem. Far from it! A true Igbo man in any case gets into his real elements when put under pressure. His ingenuity, creativity and industry naturally just kick in... If Buhari by your estimation is pressuring the Igbo (and I don't think that to be the case sir!) then he may unwittingly be arming them for further greatness.

Finally, it is a good thing that you are now playing very vocal opposition having badly misread the political climate before the last elections. In doing so however it is important that you act responsibly. No foul language, no disrespect to the person and office of the President, no incitement of one people against another and finally no need crying 'wolf' where evidently there is not even a rabbit in sight.

charles chiemeka said...

Shame to our igbo law makers who has been elected by the igbo people to represent us in the fedral house. Shame to our governors and all the igbo ministers who has chosen to chase rat while their house burn. Greater shame to the current governor of enugu state Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for allowing such a treatment to be metted upon his people under his nose. The police that arrested the 79 igbos did they take them to North or are the 79 igbos not there in a cell in a police station there in Enugu? Why cant the governor order fkr their release? Why cant he order for a man hunt of the Fulani's? #SHAME

@songsofSuSSan:
.
You are totally wrong. In this nation, there is NO tribe wherein people help each others as the Igbos do. Just a few examples:
.
If you are an Igbo and you land in ANY foreign country in this world, other Igbos that DO NOT KNOW YOU BEFORE will shelter, feed and help you to stand on your own. This happens ALL the time. That's why there are Igbos everywhere on Earth. Many just landed in those places knowing NOBODY. How do you think they survived and later made it ? The UNCONDITIONAL help of and from their fellow Igbos. This is RARE if non-existent with other tribes in Nigeria. I'm saying this from first hand knowledge.
.
90% of Igbo traders and business people TODAY (from the richest to the up-coming ones) were HELPED and made by other Igbo traders and business people. Let me reveal a secret to you: People say Igbo can make it GREAT starting with next to NOTHING. It's the truth, but do you know why? Because, they INITIALLY get GOODS from other Igbos without paying much or anything. All you need is a shop and other Igbos will SUPPLY you with goods at credit if you are Igbo. Often, if you are NEW somewhere, the other Igbos will help you procure a shop and they will supply you the goods at credit. This happens all around and even in far away Guanghzou's Kanaa and Tanqi markets dominated by the Igbos in China. In Nigeria and in Africa, NO MEMBERS OF ANY ETHNIC GROUP GIVE EACH OTHER GOODS WITHOUT DOWN-PAYMENT as the Igbos give to each other. Every year, this runs into billions of dollars worth of goods given with 0 or almost 0 down payment. Ask around.
.
People say Igbos don't help each other or that they pull each other down, but SYSTEMATICALLY every time an Igbo is appointed somewhere, people come later to say he or she filled the place with Igbos. How can you reconcile these 2 contradictory statements from subjective people like you?
.
In Igboland growing up, the overwhelming majority of university students back in the day had their ENTIRE EDUCATION PAID for and sponsored by the villagers EVEN the elderly. Young men and women were sent to the USA and Europe to further their education even when their parents couldn't afford 3 square meals a day for their entire families talkless of sending them to universities even in Nigeria. Palmwine tappers and other poor families with no other jobs had their kids in the USA studying in great universities. All of their expenses TILL graduations were paid by the villagers. Everybody chipped in during weekly or monthly meetings. No questions asked. Even the poor, the elderly, the widowed, the handicapped etc...
.
I could go on and on BUT what's the need. Some prefer believing falsehoods than the NAKED truth starring them in the face but that they chose to ignore.

GOD Bless you SIR. We're grateful. The spirit of Biafra is rekindled because of obvious injustices meted by the Nigerian nation via killings, marginalisation even in the military and Police recruitments, disrespect and hatred. How should one belong to a nation where he's given unequal privileges??? We'd better be on our own. To cowardly Igbo leaders, we're waiting for you in BIAFRA.I PRAY FOR GOD'S PROTECTION FOR SIR FANI KAYODE AND THE PEOPLE'S GOVERNOR AYO FAYOSE. Two of you are GOD sent.

Well said Sir. Buahri is a disgrace to human being. God will vindicate the Igbos. "Linda's sister from another Mother"

I copied from CharlesChiemeka:Shame to our igbo law makers who has been elected by the igbo people to represent us in the fedral house. Shame to our governors and all the igbo ministers who has chosen to chase rat while their house burn. Greater shame to the current governor of enugu state Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for allowing such a treatment to be metted upon his people under his nose. The police that arrested the 76 igbos did they take them to North or are the 76 igbos not there in a cell in a police station there in Enugu? Why cant the governor order fkr their release? Why cant he order for a man hunt of the Fulani's? #SHAME

Former Nigerian Agriculture minister under Jonathan, Akinwumi Adesina used to ask for EXTRA commission for EACH bag of fertilizer sold to poor Nigerian farmers. Nigerian farmers secretly suffered because of his greed. That's how he got stinkingly rich even as he was poor when he was appointed by GEJ. Jonathan was a good man and an efficient one too but his only weakness was that he was not hard with his ministers. But things are worse with this government despite the hype.

This Femi Fani-Kayode is a very daft talkative. No apologies.

Biafra will come when ohaneze and current crop of igbo leaders and elders pass on. They saw the war, and the horror still plays in them. They all of a sudden forgot what made them fought in the first place. Well the same is making us to fight, and we will fight until we achieve freedom. The essence of our kingdom is freedom
