Nigeria lacks national leader, we must dialogue with Biafra agitators--Obasanjo

Nigeria lacks national leader, we must dialogue with Biafra agitators--Obasanjo

Published by Family Writers

Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has called for dialogue with Biafran agitators. Obasanjo speaking in Abuja on Thursday at “Biafra, 50 years After” Event forum at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre said We should beg those agitating for Biafra that there is enough cake to share and that Nigerians must treat the country with care.

He said the country’s fundamental problem was that it had lacked a national leader. “We never had a national leader. Our leaders at the beginning were mindful of their regions. That is our problem till today,” he said. ‎ ”I have maintained that the young officers who struck in 1966 were naive but there were some element of nationalism in some of them.

Be that as it may, it set us back.” He said the war showed the bad side of the country. “The language used in the war did not help matters, the people on the Biafra side called us vandals and we called them rebels,” he said. “We thought we would end the war in three months, but it took us 30 months, and the federal side nearly lost it. ‎ ”Civil war is more difficult than fighting in a foreign land because we are fighting to unite. ‎”‎Even a soldier of mine who tried to rape a woman… I had to chase him with a gun.

He did not succeed in raping the woman, and I did not have to gun him down.” Obasanjo said some of those agitating for Biafra today, lack an understanding of what it entails. “Some of the people agitating for Biafra today were not even born then. They don’t know what it entails,” he said. ‎ ”But I think, we should even appeal to those saying they want to go, we should not tell them to go, we should make them understand that there is enough cake to share. We should massage Nigeria just like in a love relationship.”

  1. Obasanjo called Biafran agitators miscreants last year and now he wants to beg them. Buhari sent his military killer squad made of Army, Police, DSS, Boko haram, Fulani herdsmen and others to massacre young Biafran agitators. Now, they want to beg them because they are losing the war based on truth and facts. They now want a way out. What a bunch of hypocrites. Why can't Arewa, Oduduwa and Biafra be? What's so special about Nigeria - which is big for nothing, a failing state, lawless and corrupt? A nation filled with hate against Igbos and Biafrans. Why should we continue to be part of this hate, marginalization, subjugation and oppressions? The injustices and hate against Eastern region in Nigeria is simply awful. Please, leave us alone. We are ready to go so that we can rebuild our war torn region and prepare a better future for our children and future.

  2. That perpetrator is an equivocator. Biafra is not negotiable. You progenitors of that heinous crime of ethnic cleansing owe us pounds of flesh.

  3. This old stunt called Obasanjo is brain dead. For Obasanjo the agitators for Biafra today, lack an understanding of what it entails, and even went on to undermine the integrity of the younger generations of Biafrans by saying that some of the people agitators for Biafra today were not even born then spells insults from that old Yoruba coward who just want people to hear him vomit rots. Yet Obasanjo want to appeal to share cake? Biafrans are talking about Freedom, Obasanjo and his corruption is talking about sharing cake! This is all they have been doing, Sharing! Sharing! Sharing! Obasanjo want people to understand how Hausa-Fulani, Yoruba and the British have been sharing Biafra wealth! And kept Biafrans to be slaves of Hausa-Fulani and the British! May God punish that coward Obasanjo mouth!!!

  4. How can nigeria government order for the killings of millions of Biafrans for what they believe in and come back to talk about sober reflection? The level of stupidity existing in the zoo is unprecedented. Zoo a place that the people living in it lack the ability to reason properly as humans. One thing these misfits parading themselves as Zoo leaders have failed to understand is that Biafra is a divine project and the God of Biafrans, the Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama who is in heaven-sanctioned it. Neither their evil powers nor their tricks can stop the restoration of Biafra. Whether restructure or no restructure, whether true federalism or false federalism, all we want is the restoration of Biafra nothing less, nothing more. We can never abandon our ancestral patrimonial Biafra Identity for a concocted nigeria Identity which has no meaning to us. We are not nigerians and we will never be part of this hausa-fulani terrorists breeding factory called nigeria, we are Biafrans and Biafrans we will be. One thing is certain Biafra must be restored as the civilized world has decided that self-determination is an inalienable right. Peaceforall
