IPOB: A UNIFYING EVOLUTION FOR ALL BIAFRANS

IPOB: A UNIFYING EVOLUTION FOR ALL BIAFRANS

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) globally, ably led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has really evolved over time, as a unifying force for the people of Biafra throughout the world. Dating back to 1967 when the Nigerian government under the leadership of Retired General Yakubu Gowon, on his desperation to maintain the unity of Nigeria, orchestrated the "divide and rule" antics against Biafrans. This precipitated the partitioning of the land of Biafra then known as the Eastern region of Nigeria into three different States. Never has there been any record of appreciable unity amongst Biafrans until the emergence of the IPOB. This phenomenal birth completely annihilated the evil seed of discord conceptualized and planted in Biafraland by the Nigerian government. The creation of three States of the East Central State for the Igbos, Eastern State for the Efiks, Ogojas, Ibibios/Annangs, Ejeghams and the Old Rivers State for the Ijaws, Ogonis and Ikwerre-Igbos amongst others.


Regardless of multiplicity of States in Biafraland presently through the machinations of the Nigerian government from the forcefully created three States arrangement of 1967, to creation of ten additional States as currently exist within Biafraland, the IPOB phenomenal evolution has completely healed and swallowed up the wounds of decades of disunity and hatred orchestrated against the psyche of the people of Biafra. The baseless mutual distrust and suspicion which had existed between the Igbo ethnic group and other sister ethnic nationalities of Biafra for decades, has totally been eradicated. This was made possible by the dogged and enlightened intervention process employed by the IPOB leadership, the compromised Nigerian media news concoction and deceptive antics nonetheless.

To the chagrin of detractors amongst Biafrans, the Indigenous People of Biafra has clinically terminated the array of ethnic suspicion amongst the people. Typical example of the foregoing analysis is the experience of an IPOB family member, resident in Morocco. His name is Mazi Obot John Louise Effiok, from Akwa-Ibom State, Biafraland. In an interview with Family Writers Press, the IPOB National Coordinator in Cote D'Ivoire, Mazi Emeka Gift, gave the narrative of the maximum support and assistance Mazi Obot John Louise Effiok received from the Cote D'Ivoire IPOB family, three years ago. He stated that Mazi Obot John Louise Effiok visited Cote D'Ivoire, all the way from Morocco for a marital process. The Cote D'Ivoire IPOB National Coordinator said that when Mazi Obot arrived Abidjan and located the IPOB family, with his identity as IPOB National Coordinator in Morocco, the IPOB leadership in Cote D'Ivoire, instantly initiated contact with the Moroccan IPOB family for confirmation. Since the authentication of his particulars scaled through, he has been co-opted into the Cote D'Ivoire IPOB family as a blood brother, with all valuable needs and assistance duly accorded him. According to Mazi Emeka Gift, he felt delighted and fulfilled standing as a witness to the wedding of Mazi Obot John Louise Effiok and his lovely wife, in Abidjan.

Who would have envisaged such a unique moment in history as it were, between the Igbos and the Ibibios/Annangs? Today brothers and sisters from both divides in Biafraland can conveniently mix together in whatever shape or form without mutual distrust. This is one major irrefutable and irreversible feat achieved for the people of Biafra by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's ably led IPOB within such a short period of existence. This further, lends credence to the appointment by the IPOB global leadership, of an Ijaw Biafran from Bayelsa State, Mazi Tonye Tiger Amachree as the IPOB National Coordinator while his deputy is Mazi Otegwa William Ejeh from Yala in Cross River State, Biafraland. None of these personalities is an Igbo Biafran and yet they command appreciable loyalty of IPOB members within Biafraland according to laid down structures.

In conclusion, the Cote D'Ivoire IPOB National Coordinator, Mazi Emeka Gift, expressed optimism that the existing love and unity amongst different Biafran ethnic nationalities will be jealously sustained until and after the restoration of the sovereign nation of Biafra. He called on Biafrans globally to fully get themselves identified with IPOB families nearest to them despite their respective ethnic nationalities.
