A WARNING TO OUR GENERATION

A WARNING TO OUR GENERATION

BY OSCAR LEE
(FOR FAMILY WRITER)

I wish to show what these great people came against in spite that,  they thrive; the rich in Nigeria of today have their major roots in the Indigenization decree of 1972 and 1977 and my father told me how the banks gave people of other tribes, predominantly Hausas and Yoruba’s loans to buy up companies owned by Igbo Biafrans and foreigners and how the Federal government forced Chevron to sell 51 percent of its shares and that Access Bank will give them loans to buy the shares and  how rich will you be in just 5 Years? That is how many Yoruba’s and Hausas got to own UAC, Dunlop, Leventis, Cadbury Bata, etc now while this was ongoing the then head of states Gowon told the Nigerian banks to give twenty pounds to any Biafran Igbo man that had money in the bank before the war, that is if you had 5  pounds before the war you will be given the 5 pounds, but if you had a 5 million pounds you will get just twenty pounds in fulfillment of the bank’s  policy, now asked yourselves “why would the banks give Biafran Igbo’s only twenty pounds? Did the bank’s collapse? So why pay less than what one  had in his  bank account? While the banks were busy giving loans to Hausa and Yoruba’s to buy off companies they did not build,Biafran Igbo’s  were being cheated out of their rightful hard earned moneys.

Now that these people lost houses and business across the land, look at how Dangote made his money (a great man and pride to Nigeria) has an uncle called Dantata who owned huge chunks of a groundnut pyramids in the 50’s and 60’s, He gave Dangote a loan and Dangote paid it back in record time but the add is that Dangote had his “brothers” in government from IBB to Abacha and Abdulsalaam when they agreed to democracy he was rich enough to have funded Obasanjo and so government policies which afforded him a monopoly for rice, sugar, flour and of course a large share of subsidy to ensure he is the wealthiest Nigerian businessman, However  for the Igbo man, where will he see an uncle that will loan him money? The richest man in their family as of then has how much? While Fani Kayode can inherit property of his father and grandfather and great grandfather,  Chidi cannot inherit anything from his grandfather who had business in Kano, even Port Harcourt because neighbors have made his dad’s storey building theirs and even someone as educated as Saro Wiwa lived in an Igbo war emigrant house as his a sore point of the Niger Delta and Igbo Unity.

WAEC building was Ojukwu’s dad’s building and many other buildings, and thousands of  land with it…lands worth billions today were taken from Igbo’s and each and every Igbo had tops 20 naira destroyed homeland, stolen and destroyed wealth away from the east also his brother is never president that will give him oil block or fuel lifting of 33 oil lifters, only one Igbo man and because he was in Obasanjo’s good graces or do we talk of how Igbo civil servants were displaced in the federal civil service even after war were declared on them? YET LOOK HOW PROUD THEY STAND TODAY!!! Look what they have achieved for themselves…FIRST GENERATIONAL WEALTH THINKERS, while they were unable to send their first sons to school so he could help look after the shop to produce first class brains in all departments of modern learning. So today, as you accuse Biafran Igbo’s of wanting their Biafra or of Baby Factory, or liking money and ready to do anything for money, remember that just forty years ago, while the banks were dashing your uncles loans to buy all the companies  it stole from the Igbo’s  know that appointments have not favored them, Note that they remain persecuted and many speak such ill and hate towards a people forced by need to survive to be extra-aggressive towards their sustenance or maybe if you took their history into consideration, you will not be so critical of them, but instead say ”WHAT A RESILIENT PEOPLE” and give God the glory that for now  Biafrans  are a great people .

    i have always told people that these people do not like us. they wish us death upon death. sometimes i ask myself what we have done to them that should bring this kind of injustice. how did we even allow this nonsense to happen? where were we when these urchins sneaked into our lives and started destroying us, yet we biafrans especially the ibos, we no dey hear word. i wanted to buy land in lagos 2013 but when i consulted my elder brother, he opened my eyes and i quickly changed my mind, ever since he told me all he told me about these people, i started cutting my relationship with a yoruba/hausa friend. i have them now i swear
