Can Nigeria Afford an Igbo President?

Nigeria cannot afford an Ibo president

the Obama presidency is a proverb on Africa, there is hope that such a scenario would be repeated at home. In America the white are not afraid of the black, rather they seek to correct historical injustice by giving a black man a fair chance to rule and be part of American dream.

With regard to the Ibo's the situation is different. The average Nigerians is distrustful and suspicious of the Ibo's. In comparison to their population , the Ibo's control more than 70% of Nigeria economy. From the shore of Atlantic ocean in Lagos to the Sahara in Kano, the Ibo's completely controls the local trading economy. From the biggest cities to the smallest village, Ibo's are Lord of trading, using monopoly  and various unconventional business practices to dominate the market.

Meanwhile you cannot find a single non-Ibo shop in Ariaria Market at Aba , nor Onitsha market; this is true for all the Ibo state. The Ibo's refuse all non-Ibo tribe to have access to their market, while at the same time dominating the entire market in Nigeria without exception. Are the Ibo's the only people who knows how to trade? Any attempt by other Nigerians to open a shop near an Ibo shop is frustrated through various nefarious activities.

An average Ibo man is better off financially than any other Nigerian. Nigeria is a poor, corrupt and weak infrastructural based country with more than 140 millions mouth to feed. Oil is our only source of income which represent more than 90% of our revenue. We cannot entrust our presidency with an Ibo man. There is every likelihood that he his going to completely dominate and manipulate our oil revenue to the exclusion of all other Nigerians, just like hi his presently doing in the Nigeria markets.

The Nigerian presidency is not by vote , its by negotiation. To be the president, you must negotiate with the other stakeholders, they would make demand of you; its a give and take situation. If the Ibo's want the presidency, let him come to the negotiating table, we would ask one demand of him: that he should allows other Nigerian a free and unrestricted access to their market in all Ibo towns , while at the same time stop dominating and manipulating trading activities in other Nigerian towns. Its fair and democratic.

well trading is significant but in real terms is a small part of business in nigeria. there are several other businesses/business people that do not engage in buying  and selling e.g telecomms,construction,IT,oil and gas,engineering,banking,brokerage and other financial services. even the big multi nationals cadbury,nestle,unilever etc find out who are the biggest nigerian holders of equity.you will find that it is mainly Northerners. they are therefore the biggest business men e.g.  Dangote. but igbos are the best traders. i think most nigerians have one niche or the other in the economy.

regarding igbo presidency why not. let them unite themselves and make political friendships   pragmatically.

There are fundamental issues that need to be addressed before a Igbo can ascend the presidency

Imagine

How can a true sepratist group depend on funding for its operation from the same state it wish to destroy? Its like Hamas depending on funding from Israel for its activities or Tamil Tiger expected to be bankrolled by Sri lankan. Its absurd and preposterous. Most militia organisations always depend on the dedication and sacrifice of members to achieve their objective.

Massob is unable to generate funding from ordinary Igbos whom they claim to represent. Therefore they resorted to blackmailing and intimidating eastern state governments, with the sole aim of hijacking the monthly federal allocation meant for development. Most of the funding from government is unaccounted, and end up in the pockets of few Massob leaders. Nwazuruike makes some few periodic declaration in other to keep Massob activities in the limelight and continue to receive Eastern state government funding.

This clearly shows that Massob is just a scam to loot the treasury indirectly. An average Igbo person would not trust Nwazuruike with a penny, though they agree with the cause: they agree with the message but not the messanger. Apparently, Massob enjoy widespread sympathy but lack real support. Ojukwu/Nwazuruike are only manipulating Igbo peoples emotion , taking advantage of deep rooted frustration, fear, marginalisation to line their own pocket. Massob is a scam put together by that bald headed hypocrite and fronted by that magomago lawyer.

Most Massob members and sympathisers on nairaland like:

Afaukwu

Presido 1

Aloy.Emaka

nuzo

Scanless

Eziachi

$Osisi

Onlytruth

Ikeyman00 etc

Have never donated a penny to Massob; They don't trust the combination of Ojukwu/Nwazuruike, and know the truth: IT JUST A SCAM

Achuzia to Ojukwu: You’re wrong to have collected pension from Nigerian Army

By BUCHY ENYINNAYA, Asaba

Monday, February 4, 2008

Fellow Biafran compatriot and Ohanaeze chieftain, Joe Achuzi’a, has criticized the decision of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, to collect pension from the Nigerian Army.

Achuzia was a key figure in the Biafran army during the seccessionist bid led by Ojukwu between 1967 and 1970. The rebellion was crushed by the federal forces.

Ojukwu, a Lt Colonel in the Nigerian Army before the war, collected his pension three weeks ago, a development Achuzia faulted, saying: “If I were the Biafran head of state, my first duty on being called upon to be compensated would be, no, my friend. You pay the men who made it possible for me to survive, and for you to recognize me as your former colleague. Those that rallied round, and wore uniform in my colour, under my command must be compensated, living or dead.”

Popularly known as ‘Air raid’ during the war, Achuzia stresses further: “For me, he (Ojukwu) was wrong. I have never challenged whatever he does, but he would be the last person I would expect to collect his pension. We fought under his colour. We believed in him. And we still believe in him. But I believe he might have a better excuse why he did so. I can’t answer for him.”

Commenting on the insult Chief Ojukwu was said to have received when he went for the pension, Achuzia queried his former boss for ever going there in the first instance, stressing that the insult was not only to Ojukwu but also to all who wore Ojukwu’s colour in the name of Biafra.

According to him, “ Ojukwu felt offended the way he was addressed and the way his pension payment was orchestrated. We have a saying in Igbo language: ‘Onye kporo wata nwanyi nwunye ya, mereka okpo ya iyi’ In other words, an elderly man who goes after a young girl, calling her his wife, should be prepared for any rubbish he gets from the young lady.

If Ojukwu didn’t go there to answer the call, or to show himself as a former Nigerian military man, I don’t think that a boy who either wasn’t born or wasn’t old enough to participate in the civil war, should be addressing him as Lieutenant Colonel Ojukwu, because the insult is not only to Ojukwu but to all of us who wore Ojukwu’s colour in the name of Biafra. Whether Nigeria likes it or not, the issue of the civil war was inconclusive and remains inconclusive till date.”

Ojukwu And Military Pension

On January 14, 2008, Ojukwu received his military pension from the Nigerian Government. Up till today, there are thousands of former Biafran soldiers: destitutes, handicaps, suffering who have not collected a single penny nor been acknowledge by the federal Government.

Without a single care in the world about other Biafran soldiers who fought for him, Ojukwu graciously collected the pension and even complained that he should have been paid as a General ( his rank in the Biafran army) rather than a Lieutenant Colonel, his rank in the Nigerian army.

One military officer had looked at him in disdained saying, "Real Generals do not run away during the heat of a battle".

Ojukwu's trumpcard to the Presidency of Nigeria - a big joke!

He had led Biafra into war, but became the first to jump ship leaving Philip Essien- his reluctant war weary Deputy from Cross River State, to be the one to surrender to "Osagyefo" Olusegun Obasanjo who as Commander of the third Marine Commando finally ended the war. Ojukwu gave the impression he was leaving Biafra to recoup and regroup and to start a Government in exile. But once he escaped with his life and booty, he quickly abandoned all those promises, leaving Phillip Essien and those left behind to their own devices. That is hardly the stuff that a good leader is made of in my judgment. Who can guarantee that Ojukwu would not repeat the same offence, if for any reason the country has to face a similar cul-de-sac in the foreseeable future which is quite conceivable - if Ojukwu is a more visionary leader who truly love the country, rushing back to partisan politics after his return from exile, should have been the least of his worries.

He had just led an insurrection that had revealed so much about the potential resourcefulness of the Igbos of Nigeria who found a way to refine the Nigerian crude oil in support of their war effort. They also managed to improvise devices like the "Ugbunigwe" that proved so effective in stopping the Federal troops at Abagana, forcing them to consider driving a herd of cattle ahead of the advancing troops in the hope the cattle would trip off the mines, and save the troops from walking into them without notice, like they did in Abagana. If Ojukwu had focussed all his attention in getting the Federal Government to put more money in developing such resources and scientific breakthrough in Biafra, perhaps Nigeria would have gained something, and that achievement would probably have turned out to be one of the silver lining to come from the civil war.

In other civilized countries a man like Ojukwu would have written several books providing future generations with useful lessons from the war. Ojukwu was the exact opposite of a man like Saddam Hussein of Iraq who tried to mobilize the limitless resources and determination of his people to rebuild Baghdad and Iraq after the Gulf War without outside help.

Second, when Ojukwu returned to Nigeria following the unconditional pardon or amnesty granted him by Shaghari with the hope of securing the Igbo vote in his epic battle with Awolowo and Azikiwe,Ojukwu did so in a way and manner that betrayed his flawed character as a leader. Few would have expected him to go into partisan politics soon after coming back. That was precisely what he did, having signed off his discretion and objectivity, by joining the party of his estwhile implacable enemies in the North while deserting the Party floated, in large part, by the people he had led into fighting a war he knew he could not win. Little wonder therefore that he ran for a senatorial seat, and lost badly to a relatively unknown opponent. A man who could not win a senatorial seat at Nnewi - his own base at the height of his political power in the East, now want to run for national office as President of the whole Federation.

And guess what? He now wants to run for the sole purpose of making sure that the Igbos were not maginalised again. He forgot the poor image and reputation of the Igbos as "political prostitutes" who will settle for anything as long as the price is right, actually began with the propensity of individuals like Ojukwu who will abandon a cause just to salvage his own selfish interest. He was ready to take anything from Shaghari once he was promised the abandoned properties of his father, taken over by the Federal, would be returned to him, if he returns to Nigeria to join the party of the great majority of those he had accused of progrom against his own people in the Biafran war. What kind of leader is that?

The only thing good about Ojukwu is his gift of the garb.But it takes more than sheer eloquence to rule a country as complex as Nigeria. How could any national leader worth his salt, begin his campaign for the presidency by tellinig all and sundry, that he wanted that office just to be able to champion the interest of only a unit in what is supposed to be a Federation of equal partners. He seems to have forgotten that the rest of Nigeria and especially the North is ever so suspicious of the Igbos under his leadership , having once tried to break up Nigeria. The general feeling is that the igbos could try it again if they find themselves in a position of power like Ojukwu is foolishly trying to do,

In my judgment, Ojukwu cannot be taken as a serious candidate. Only the likes of Alex Ekwueme and other prominent and rational igbos can be saying that kind of thing with some credibility.Most Nigerians view Ojukwu at best as a Unclad Emperor who is not aware he is indeed Unclad. He cannot win, and does not deserve to win any elected office in Nigeria. He was lucky he was not even tried for treason for his role in the Bifran war from 1967 to 1970. Ojukwu loves nobody but himself. His professed candidacy should be taken for what it really is - a joke or at best a tale told by an , full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. If selfishness were to be a sport in the Olympics, Ojukwu will, sure, be a gold medalist. I cannot for the life of me, imagine how a person with that kind of profile could believe that he can ever be president of Nigeria. It is a dog's dream that will never come to pass.

From your expert of opinion as to what choices was available to Ojukwu towards the end of the war, I will take it that you had fought a war before to know? or Your father was a field marshal? Your grand father fought in Burma as a field marshal too?

"Speaking with reporters on the incident, 'Major' Anayo Chukwunonso, who claimed to be a leader of the MASSOB militia, said the organisation was unhappy with Governor Obi for allegedly stopping the monthly payment made to them by previous governments in the state."

Questions that are begging for answers:

How long was the former governor before Obi, supporting massob and how much did he paid them?

Is there other Igbo governors who supported massob in the past and what is the financial cost?

Are there other Governors presently supporting massob?

Are there other Governors presently paying massob?

PROJECT MASSOB

Massob was a scam hatched by that coward Ojukwu and fronted by that magomago lawyer who called himself Uwazuruike, to cornerd the security votes of eastern state. The idea was to stir up tribal sentiment among the Igbo people and provide a platform through which their frustration could be channelled. What they did was to gathered together some unemployed youths and spice it with some political naive graduates, and make some empty noise claiming to be the soul of the Igbo.

Ojukwu is too selfish to care about anybody, he has strategically position himself and pulling the string on massob activities; while the magomago lawyer is left to do the paper work.The attack on Governor Obi for allegedly stopping the monthly payment made to them by previous governments, finally confirmed what mossob was all about: a scam to defraud state government of developmental fund. Governor Obi was able to see the truth: massob was a scam, its activities was worthless and of no benefit to Igbo people.

If Igbo people are unable to see any meaningful development in the south east, they should ask the scam master Ojukwu and the magomago lawyer. They are responsible for diverting money meant for developmental project, through massob into their private pockets

Those pointing at the GSM revolution as his legacy are poor students of history.

IBB initiated the deregulation of telecommunication and electronic media. We cannot point at what was done with the over $ 900 million license fees paid by the GSM operators.

We have heard of Obasanjo owning greater shares of Transcorp. Yet, he was fighting corruption. This is a man that in 1999 had not more than N22,000. While making sure Nigerians do not enjoy steady power supply, about four years ago he tried to ban the importation of electric generators.Was is it d kabal he helped in setting up in d NNPC Dat ve made petroleum products,d lykz of Dangote,Femi Otedolla & co ve become billionairz through d worst biz practices,politically ousting out competitorz no thanx to dat belligerant fool,Obasanjo.Obasanjo is not just the worst ruler we ve had,he also gave corruption a new name,impetus & institutionalized it.But in the eyes of his Myopic tribes men(not all though),he is a saint,d best thin to happen to Nigeria.Wat a shame!!

Bilymuse,

Even people of south south are more (and better) educated than Yoruba, not to talk of Ibo. Don't you read the JAMB website? Yoruba people have always sacrificed education for taxi driving, bukateria (iya olonje), gbomogbomo and fake pastoring. Some of those who venture into education do so just to get paper. They can't speak simple good english (just like you). That is why you have so many forged degree holders in that clime.

you are a fool, I detest people who tell Unclad lies for the sake of argument. GSM was never on abacha's agenda, he was too preoccupied with sanction, security and threat of coup. How could he think of GSM when sanction was placed on the country and the foreign companies who could operate the system would be unable to secure loan for the requisite investment.

when Obasanjo was returning to Nigeria he was advised against it, because abacha planned to arrest and jailed him. But, OBJ returned to the country, was arrested and jailed; the rest is history.

Toward the end of Biafra war Ojukwu was faced with two choices: fight on and die like a hero or live like a coward. That bald head fool choose cowardice.

Comparatively, many Igbo or Yoruba people dont beg on the street compare to the northerners, where begging has been elevated to a profession. Materially speaking, Igbo may be ahead with Yoruba people following behind, while the north are in a distant third.

Igbo chaps usually sacrifice education for spare part trading, where they are taught to be mean , selfish and cold. They abandon God and worship the devil called ego. Yoruba people still believe in education and strive very hard to send their kids to school , irrespective of the circumstances. so they come first

The ill in Igboland - an average igbo trader has no heart, ruthless and cold. He worship the devil called ego; which is responsible for the high percentage of criminals among the Igbos compare to other Nigerian tribes.

well i would agree with you to an extent that he tried in his fight against corruption against his enemies while  his daughter functions as a saint.

Common guys, let be fair to OBJ, the guy is crude, unsophisticated and lacking in charisma, but in terms of achievement, probably the best Nigeria president. He brought in GSM and help paid off our debt.

GSM led to the inflow of foreign capital and is responsible for the boom in stock market and the high digit economic growth recorded. GSM alone led to the creation of over 5 millions jobs. Think about people selling recharge card, phones , call centres. This stretch from major cities down to the interior villages. From Abroad you can call family members direct in the village; thank OBJ for that.

Though, OBJ has his shortcomings, but his achievements surpass any Nigerian president.

Compare him with that bald head fool called Ojukwu, the difference is clear

a failed society created created a disorganized government.

i just got back from nija, i cant believe what a hell in a hole the country is turning out to be. no hope for the future, system all broken, most people want to leave the country. however, behind the facades of destruction,i see the vision, the bright future. that even though the leaders have failed the people. the people can still work their way out of depression.

the reason nigeria has failed is because of the societal mentality we all have created. the big boiiiiiiii idea, that u have to be rich by all means. secondly the present day youth generation have not being taken care of, lastly, the weak run away from their problem rather than fight it out even if it cost one his or her life. let it be know u fought for justice.

after the civil war, under the military regime most people move to the urban areas from villages. just like me - my people moved to lagos festac. with just big dreams and ready to take the world. very few people could boast of having a degree. the government cared gave them houses, at a cheaper rates. jobs, etc it worked right. (what the white man made.) our power craving destroyed it. over 15years. i remember those days in festac we actually pick fishes in the sewer now considered gutters. or the phones at every block entrance. or even the serenity. clean water constant light a societz that works. the police men had pride in what they did and they were paid well. there was no reason to pollute our air with generator because someone is making money out of the petrol and generator we buy.

demographically,lagos has more older folks than younger ones below 33,they are not going back and they have friends in lagos. they got use to the urban african life. there is very little hope for the youth who are the ones who provide or will security. and continue the great nation.the moment politicans start seeking the interest of the babies and kids that is when people will see the changes in the goverment.most politicians and the governors are not just corrupt but useless. if they dont understand the role of the government for the people.the confrontation between the youths and the olders ones.it is like a tinking bomb that will soon explode. how long can u hold the war in the delta. how long can a man see his child die in his hands because of hunger,how long can we be suffering and crying. the truth about it is that the youth are the ones protecting the rich and the rich have being in politics for long without no major impact. the obansanjos and babaginda. it is not about tribe. they have failed and they know that. and this fair opportunity can be seen in every aspect of nigeria even sport. the older ones who had the opportunity should step down for the youngers ones. it is their time KANU.

leaving nigeria is never the solution, we all who have gone oversea can testify. it is not that rosey. the only difference is that they give us opportunity to survive and often times give us respect than people in our own country. the society the influencial politician created in nigeria is to trick us to leave the country so they can benefit from the oil money send their kids to the best school oversea. abuse our kids. make us believe that is is only by illicit act that we can make it. trust me most who stay in nigeria cant compete overseas.most problem in nigeria can be rectified even a dumb person can easily analyse it and fix it. or else u guys the older ones who we protect is heading for serious problem a war or revolution. many people want to come back home. and give back but how can they. when the government do not want to promote the idea of coming back home. to give back to the society. other countries offered us alot. nigeria has money. i have being every where. and i know there is money. but greed and stupidity make the ignorant leaders push us back to slavery. THE ONLY REASON PEOPLE LEAVE NIGERIA IS BECAUSE OF MORE OPPORTUNITY THAN OUR COUNTRY WHO STILL BELIEVE IN ENSLAVING US

i can tell u three things than can definitely be fixed easily but enslaving our own people is a pride to the goverment.

1. light the cost of owning a generator is about 12 to n14 thousand downpayment for my light bill oversea

secondly the daily cost to put petrol daily in it cost about a whooping n 2000 or more tell if the cost of leaving in usa, uk, germany or any where is that expensive for light. but it continues because someone is gaining too much money it can be fixed people will rather pay that money to get light daily. but no body cares a governor does one piece of little event and wants every one to praise him. gov of lagos is a fool.

talk about security

it is appauliing that the police has to harrass people daily to feed. govt should ask or monitor how much they make daily from standing in the street and increase their pay and ensure the bus drivers or taxis pay for it. they pay regardless, but accountablity should be enforced. police should be accountable for their actions.also watch for the unforseen circumstance like bus price hike. that is when the government step in a nd create ,more cheap buses for poor people. this is very possible. most of the people running our country see how it works oversea but are ignorant to their people because they are weak. can u guys sustain the on going social problem.

lastly road. from my own point of view nija roaad s are ridiculous because the government failed. so many unemployed graduates trust me if u ready to pay them tangible amount they will work for any thing just give them hope u can employ youths to fix the roads. they are a big mess. a nd fix it right with traffic lights working warning signs and lanes intact. then impose a new law that demand everyone should go to driving schhools no one should be excluded. and the bikers should go to inner city. insurance sector should work. any car in the road should be towed if it is not parked right. no car driving with smoking exhaust. above all a time limit should be set like 2 years and other stuff like a train station or big government buses should run. for the poor. it is not a must to drive a car. people just have to go to car. and clean the mess. to many cars in the roads so make it a social class issue but create opportunity for the poor.

If Ojukwu has shame and conscience he would keep a low profile and dedicate himself to charity, as a means of cleansing his soul. But the bald head fool went to contest for president and fought over a small girl. Mr. Onoh., Bianca's father, knew the kind of man Ojukwu is, that why he doesn't want his blood to pollute his lineage line. Onoh does not want Ojukwu kind as a grandchild.

All have sinned and come short of glory of God. An average Nigerian politician is a thief, irrespective of tribal affiliation. Mallam Ribadu confirmed it when he indicted 33 of the 36 state Governors.

But this people are better than Ojukwu, who has blood of millions of people in his hand. He not only stole biafran money, but deceived the people to continue fighting while he ran away. A final insult to the dead and life destroyed, that bald head fool came back and start fighting for his properties. Ojukwu is the quitessential Igbo politician; selfish , no conscience.

@Billymuse or moose (whatever)

You seem to be an adept MKO supporter.Hmm, he was a real saint wasn't he?Then why did a yoruba man who is respected world wide for his music sing songs about him (ITT, INTERNATIONAL THIEF THIEF).You have forgotten already?Or maybe your undeveloped brain just let it pass.

Guy, enough said, you be mumu.

Pretty interesting post.From all i see, the negative attitude toward the igbo race stems from envy and jealousy.All the senseless rants from billymuse and his cohorts point to this.He is so quick to provide lenghty and unintelligent replies condemning igbos but can't provide on logical reply to questions about his own people.

Grow up haters.Jealousy will get you no where.For example, the billymuse character stated an edit from El rufai that Igbos own 73% of land in Abuja.Yes, what if they do?Did they acquire the property for free.Na Jealousy go finish you.Rot and die in your jealousy and madness.

and the yorubas got leader, well i guess in this case a leader might be opened to miscellanous definitions, but in the oduduwa context thieves are respected and embellished; so what next abola abi june 12 when he might just embezle even more than he did, u can never tell, if a man like that could make away with the whole tele-communication fund at the detriment of the whole country, that could only emphasise on his wickedness

my friend courtesy to nl aka ogun man himseleves, dnt hate me haha i will pressume from now on next time u picture igbo man walk past u, bow ur head in shame if ur neck hasnt stiffen up sorri to say

The truth is Igbos have no leaders, what you have are spare part dealers masquerading as politicians. There is no Igbo politician that is ready to sacrifice his life for his people. Everything about Igbo is money money money. That is the reason you wont get anywhere politically.

Many Yoruba people where killed during June 12, and hundreds more where jailed, yet they remained steadfast and fought for what they believe, until the government was forced to handover power to Yoruba people. These are true warriors , people who believe.

The greatest betrayer in Nigeria is that coward  Ojukwu. That fool led millions of innocent igbo people to their death, at the heat of the battle he stole biafran money and ran away like a chicken to self impose exile. Years later he came back after receiving bribe from NPN and marry a small girl of his daughters age. Later,  he starts fighting for his own property without considering millions of lives destroyed during the war.
