IPOB Reacts To President Muhammadu Buhari's Declaration

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Wednesday,
said it welcomed the statement attributed to President
Muhammadu Buhari, declaring that any Nigerian is free
to leave the country if they have another one, but says
no to the conditions he gave for such exit.
IPOB in a statement entitled, “IPOB welcomes
Muhammadu Buhari’s declaration on the impending
disintegration of Nigeria, but says no to conditions”
signed by its spokespersons Mr. Emma Nmezu, a
lawyer and Dr. Clifford Iroanya, said that it was
delighted with the comment of Mr. President who
seems to have bowed to international pressure to
consider the inevitable disintegration of Nigeria.
IPOB statement read: “We the IPOB are delighted with
the comments attributed to retired Major-General
Muhammadu Buhari, who seems to have bowed to
international pressure to consider the inevitable
disintegration of Nigeria, though with conditions we
find inconsistent with common sense and logic.”
“According to Buhari, “any Nigerian is free to leave the
country if they have another one.”
Buhari also stated that “If anybody has a country to go
to, let him go, we will stay here and salvage our
“It is crystal clear that Buhari has seen the futility of
fighting against a determined people who are bent on
restoring their God-given nation which was unjustly
robbed them by slave merchants later turned
“From all indications, Buhari must have consulted with
his colonial backers and religious hardliners in Saudi
Arabia who perhaps have taken the time to school him
on the sanctity of the United Nations Declaration on the
Rights of Indigenous People, UNDRIP, the inviolability
and irreducibility of the rights of Indigenous People to
“However, we observed that hidden in the statements
of Buhari are two evil agendas, first evil agenda is that
Buhari made this statement in a meeting he had with
Biafrans from the riverine or southern part of Biafra
which the Hausa-Fulani oligarchy nicknamed South-
South or Niger-Delta.
“The underlying objective in Buhari’s statement is to
create the impression that the South-South is not part
of Biafraland, hence the upland areas of Biafra, Igbo
can leave Nigeria while the riverine areas Ibibio, Efik,
Izon, Itshekiri, Urhobo, Isoko will remain part of
“The plan is to trap the riverine areas of Biafraland in
Nigeria to enable Buhari and his Hausa-Fulani
oligarchy continue the shameless exploitation and
stealing of Biafra’s natural resources which they have
always used and will continue to use to develop the
Arewa region of Nigeria.
“The only surprise is that Buhari and his handlers did
not include the rich Orient oil fields of Anambra River
Basin, the high yield Shell operated Egbema oil fields in
Imo State, the abundant gas reserves at Ohaji also in
Imo State and the Shell operated Ukwa deep oil well in
Abia State in their so-called South-South/Niger Delta.”
According to IPOB, “successive governments of Nigeria
have continued to deceive the gullible public that the
reason we IPOB are agitating for Biafra is because of
oil in the Niger Delta region, without making obvious
the fact that oil was first found in commercial quantity
in Imo State before Oloibiri in Bayelsa State.
“Sadly many people are still ignorant of the fact that
active oil and gas extraction is happening today in
Anambra, Imo, Abia and Igbo parts of Rivers State. It is
pertinent we make clear to all and sundry that while oil
may motivate the Arewa North to seek One Nigeria
because they cannot live without it, due to obvious
reasons and nature, in Biafraland and in the new Biafra
we shall place 100% emphasis on human capital
development not on natural occurring minerals.
“For a country to pin the hopes of its entire economic
policy and well being on a finite natural resource is
indicative of the level of intellectual backwardness of
the self arrogating “elites” that run the economy of the
colonial creation known as Nigeria. We the Indigenous
People of Biafra believe that the greatest natural
resource a people can be endowed with is their brain
not what is under the ground.
“We must stress for purposes of sound knowledge that
there is no known geographical cardinal point in any
geography text book or academic literature or any part
of this world called “South-South” except in Nigeria.
“This unique un-academic introduction of a new
cardinal point called “South-South” was created by the
Hausa-Fulani oligarchy to serve their divide and rule
interests. With this dichotomy they intend to continue
to own virtually all the oil blocks in Biafraland including
those at Anambra, Imo, Abia and Igbo parts of Rivers
“But the same Hausa-Fulani natural born rulers of
Nigeria refused to create corresponding cardinal points
of “North-North” and “West-West.” Sensible people
must ask themselves why this is the case.
“The Hausa-Fulani ruling class carefully created this
unique cardinal point of “South-South” to drive an
everlasting wedge between the upland and riverine
areas of Biafraland. Furthermore, the “South-South” is
not contained in any part of the Constitution of Nigeria
nor is it any of the Acts of Parliament or Laws of the
Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“The second evil agenda is that by making such
statements before these respected leaders from the
riverine area of Biafraland, he is creating the false
impression that he has obtained the consent of the
people of Southern Biafra to build the Nigeria of his
dreams, and in so doing is giving a misleading signal
that Biafrans from the riverine areas have bought into
his deceptive and foundationally disastrous “One
Nigeria” project.
“By gathering a few Biafrans from the riverine areas
and saying that “those who don’t want to be part of
Nigeria should leave,” Buhari hopes to convince the
world that those Biafrans he was addressing at Aso
Rock believe in the “oneness” of the British colony
Nigeria he is assiduously pursuing.
“We the IPOB at this point would wish to categorically
inform Mr. President that since we already have our
blessed nation Biafra created by the Most High God not
man; we do not need the temporary country created by
a white man Luggard for his amusement and economic
“We wish to further inform Mr. President that IPOB do
not desire to regress from the status of a nation state
to that of a country artificially created by the British
with divergent and irreconcilable value systems. Even
today nations that make up Britain like Scotland and
Wales are agitating as we Biafrans are, to establish
their own nation state outside Britain, so why should
Nigeria that is created by a white British man be
immune to similar demands being made by Biafrans.”
