NIGERIA POLITICS: The Ozubulu Church Massacre And The Moral Question In Igboland

NIGERIA POLITICS: The Ozubulu Church Massacre And The Moral Question In Igboland

Ozubulu tragedy should serve as a wakeup call for the Igbo nation that there is indeed fire on the mountain. It is a reminder that our society is in dire need for redemption, which can only come from returning to the ancient values that reward truth, honesty, disciple, hardwork and integrity and shun the negative and corrosive effects of illicitly-acquired money. The Ozubulu massacre ignites a take-action-or-perish urgency all Igbo must adhere to or prepare for a generalization of such bloody theaters all over Igboland. The tragedy is not more of an Ozubulu problem as it is an Igbo problem.

Any attempt to re-arrest Nnamdi Kanu without allowing the on-going court processes to run its course would surely spell doom for the nation”, it concluded.

NIGERIA POLITICS: The Subversive Biafran Agitation, Ethnic Responses and The Nigerian Government

NIGERIA POLITICS: The Subversive Biafran Agitation, Ethnic Responses and The Nigerian Government

The Nigerian constitution makes clear that the unity of Nigeria is indivisible. That said, the constitution allows for changes and provides mechanisms through which changes can be effected. If a tribe within the Nigerian nation state wants out, it must do so within the parameters of the Nigerian constitution. The Federal Government is therefore handling matters very well. The behaviour of the Igbo elite has been disgraceful. They have now fully embraced the racist thug and now self acclaimed supreme leader Nnamdi Kanu.

Any casual listener to Radio Biafra when it was hosted by Kanu can attest to the most repugnant racist slurs and stereo types that were directed at the North and the Yoruba. This climate of hate speech has now been a feature of Igbo internet warriors all over the net.
