NDIIGBO GENERATION 1960-70+ Our Distinct Destiny are in Our Hands!
PRESS RELEASE Feb, 4 2010
As follow up to our recent press release, we wish to elaborate more on the coming weekend political show by the Jihadist led Nigeria government in Biafraland, and re-state our stand as follows:
Rigging the Anambra Gubernatorial Election (The Nigerian Jihadist Mafia at work)
Election rigging has been vogue in Nigeria since its inception. In fact, it was the massive rigging of regional and general elections organized by the Balewa government in 1964 and 1965 that inexorably led to the Nigerian/Biafra war of 1967. The coup that followed the Balewa government's election-rigging was precipitated by the same, and ultimately lead to war and the loss of millions of lives. 40 years ago on the 15th of January, that war, the war we call the Biafran War for Independence, officially ended. That, of course, was the official war. The “un-official” war continues to this day, one of stealthy intrigues and sabotage, a secret war, as it were, against the right, dignity, and aspirations of a people; a war that has lately surfaced again for another offensive against the Igbo people, having as its goal the installation of puppet governments in Anambra state and the perpetual disenfranchisement of the axis of Igbo political life, to destroy the idea of Igbo ascendancy forever, to relegate them to the past as one of the number of failed peoples of history; to take their place alongside forgotten nations and to resign themselves to the oblivion of conquered peoples. To this NdiIgbo must say no!
Not only must NdiIgbo oppose this secret war of political aggression with words but also with deeds. Nevertheless one must study an opponent's method and gain insight into his psyche if one is to successfully throw him and win the match. Therefore as regards the Anambra election, how do we make sense of what our adversaries are up to? The answer is simple and quite effective. Simply stated, it is to “divide, and conquer.” It is much easier to steal an election if the process is confused, convoluted and chaotic rather than straightforward and orderly. The confusion provides cover for those intending mischief. The more twists, turns, processes, tribunals, courts, officials, oversight committees, the greater the smokescreen by which to make off with the Anambra governor's office, and that state's share of public monies, otherwise meant for the public welfare, schools, hospitals, roads, services, municipal works, etc. The more places and people to point fingers at, the easier it is to rig an election. NdiIgbo must seek for acute simplicity and transparency in all public processes. Not only will election simplicity ensure a fair result but it will begin to combat the psychological effects of a whole people feeling powerless and diminished in self-esteem. But this will not come as a gift from our adversaries. We will ultimately have to force the issue.
To the casual observer the events of the last few months regarding the up-coming election afford a panoramic view of the secret war against NdiIgbo, It is a view of the absolute worst of human depravity and excess; of unsavory characters reeking with the stench of self-interest, ridiculous deceits, brazen public lies, thefts, treachery, murder, kidnappings, betrayal, greed, violence, intimidation, etc, in short, a normal Anambrian election year under siege. One knows not whether to laugh at the comedy or to cry over the tragedy. But who is waging this un-official war and why? Try this. Who waged the official war and why? The answers to both questions are the same.
In very brief terms the Nigerian government waged war against Biafra so that it might hold on to the natural resources of the South, mainly oil. We all know the history. Neither are we blind for our generation suffered the greatest consequences. For illustrative purposes this question must be asked...”if Biafra had won its bid for independence, what would have been the result?” Well to start, the Muslim North would probably have an economy structured mainly around cattle-herding and pyramid nuts rather than petroleum. Secondly, there would be no club of Muslim millionaires in northern Nigeria with enough pilfered resources to setup themselves and others as Mafioso-like “godfathers” behind crooked politicians eager only to serve themselves and wreak havoc upon any resistant persons or parties. Third, West Africa would be a powerhouse of commerce, industry, and innovation spearheaded by the nimble business minds of the Igbo entrepreneurial class and supported by the Christian industriousness of the South in general. There would be orderly elections in Anambra area and elsewhere in the South, and that part of West Africa would be (as it was before the jihadist vandals struck) a model for rapid economic progress throughout the world. It would look more like Dubai than Afghanistan .Lastly young men of the Muslim Nigeria would not be living in 5 million dollar apartments in London and practicing terrorism against the West with impunity. There is more likelihood we are sure, but these we think are a few of the most likely, and the most important. So the question is why? Why is the Nigerian government waging secret war against the Igbo people and specifically against Anambra? We all know the answer. NdiIgbo was and is the only credible threat to the Nigerian government's control of the oil resources in the South. The MEND organization will probably take issue with that statement but it is clear and obvious that the Arewa led FG (khalifa jihadist of northern Nigeria) is more concerned with crushing any idea or process that may afford NdiIgbo a seed of self-determination, than it is concerned with skirmishes in the Delta.
Under the light of history the observer may gain insight as to what really is going on in Anambra at the so called election time. The desired end of the secret war against Anambra and the Igbo people in general (apart from stealing the election) is to present them to other ethnicities, peoples, and nations as a people incapable of governing themselves, as children that need oversight, as criminal elements within a law-abiding society, as untrustworthy, greedy beyond measure, ne'er do-wells, as a people divided against themselves, without a national consciousness or place among other nations. This is the manufactured image that the FG of Nigeria wants to foster to the world at-large, and it is the looking-glass through which it wants the Igbo people to see themselves, so that they utterly despair of ever realizing any national aspiration again to be a people unto themselves, a nation.
The Igbo were forced to abdicate all power at the end the Biafran war and have never forcibly re-taken that power again. This un-official war intends to alter and psychologically damage the national will of the people so that they have no consciousness as a nation and feel themselves continually powerless and disorganized in the face of their enemies and are hence unable to capture the beginnings of a nascent national will, as such would be a clear danger to the present Nigerian regime which takes very seriously the idea of Igbo nationhood. So even though no such thing may be in the workings, the FG's paranoia of Igbo nationalism forces it to sabotage and/or crush any political process that may carry the seed of Igbo national and/or patriotic sentiment. Those persons and families that have aggregated into their hands Nigerian political and economic power know only too well how such a turn of events could significantly and adversely impact their lives and their fortunes. Hence they still carry on a war that was supposed to have ended in 1970, and election rigging is the natural outgrowth of FG's distrust and paranoia (some say fear) of the unleashed potential of the Igbo people, and it is also the means by which their national self-image may be adversely impacted.
However, for maximum effectiveness, the populace must clearly see that they are being undermined by their own kith and kin, thus demoralizing them. To properly accomplish this with a measure of stealth, agents must be recruited from amongst the populace, given a measure of support, and a promise of gain. Such persons are all too common to find within any nation. We will simply call them traitors and collaborators, persons who sell the welfare of their people for personal gain, at last using naked violence and destruction if unable to accomplish their goals clandestinely. We all remember the last election in Anambra so you will at least know one of those of whom I am referring. Such persons are indispensable to those seeking to subvert the people's will and demoralize populations, and what with the backing of the FG such persons seem invincible. Nevertheless they do meet, and we applaud their appropriate end.
We ask the reader to consider the approaching election in Anambra in light the foregoing discussion. Now at this point we could turn to the eight or so -many candidates, or the call for 15000 police for the election, or the kidnapping of Pa Soludo, or Maurice Iwu and his ten-man integrity panel, or the strange Appeals court/Soludo/Supreme court debacle, or the attempt to lock out a sitting governor from the election, or the continuing saga of Okorie and Victor Umeh, or Chris and Andy Uba, or the machinations of Obasanjo behind the scenes as PDP Party boss, etc., ad museum . We feel sorry for the voters trying to understand all this but even to try to understand is to fall into the legitimacy trap of the persons rigging the election and frustrating the will of a people. Try as you may you will never make sense of the convoluted process by which election results will be arrived at. Whatever the court, tribunal, commission, panel, elected official, control will always reside with those who hold the purse strings, and while jurisdiction is publicly given, budgetary means are privately withheld, at least until the “right” decision is made. Only then do funds get disbursed. Maurice Iwu's commission will discuss and reflect but last we heard they were appealing to Mr. Iwu to give them a budget to operate with. Be assured that there will be long strings attached to that purse, and even if they are honest in all their endeavors, others will choose the next governor of Anambra, and most likely it will not be the people. There will be 15000 police for Anambra in this election, ostensibly to protect the vote, but for whom will they do this? We clearly know it will be for the people. Anambra is one of the few places on earth where there is real but un-declared martial law at election time. The candidate that is hand-picked by Anambra political aggressors will most likely be declared the winner unless the people of Anambra stand up and go to the polls “en masse.” The thieves will really have to work hard to steal an election like this, and even if they do, the theft will be all the more apparent. Let us expose this corruption to the whole world. In the process of which, the Igbo people will be making a statement loud and clear, that NdiIgbo is a nation and force to be reckoned with. You, the Nigerian gangsters, may steal this election as you have others but we have a voice, an aspiration, and a will, and it will not be frustrated no matter how long we have to fight this war, this naked aggression.
Therefore concerning the Anambra gubernatorial election, it is resolved by us, NdiIgbo Generation 6070+:
a) Whereas we are opposed to Nigerian occupation of Igbo land in totality.... We hereby require all participant of the so-called gubernatorial election organized by Nigerian corruption-ridden INEC to conduct them in peaceful manner and avoid unleashing further violence on the good and long-suffering people of Anambra area, and NdiIgbo in general.
(b) That our generation will leave no stone unturned to bring to Justice any so called candidates that by any means conduct themselves in violent manner against the good people of Igbo land in the name of self-serving election.
(c) That any act of violence by the principal actors, or their subordinates against our people will be deemed an act of aggression by the Nigerian State which will be reciprocated equally by our generation using every legal and legitimate mechanism available, and that NdiIgbo will hold the malefactors accountable.
(d) That we demand full and unrestricted investigation into the murder of Mr. Arinze Okonkwo, on January 6, 2010, at St Philips Ogidi, Idemili LGA, allegedly by political thugs loyal to Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo and his campaign manager Dr. Okey Muo Aroh. We demand full justice against the perpetuators of this heinous act.
(e) Finally, let all be warned that NdiIgbo is a diligent people and will not forget or condone crimes committed against us nor will we tire in the pursuit of justice upon the person of those who injure us. Our generation has taken our destiny in our own hands as ordained by God.
Long live NdiIgbo Generation 60/70+!!! Long live NdiIgbo at home and in Diaspora!!! Long live Republic of!!!!
