Igbo ultimatum: Northern Elders Forum berate El-Rufai, Shettima for ordering the arrest of Northern youths

The Northern Elders’ Forum (NEF) have expressed support to the call made by the Coalition of Northern Youth Groups for Igbos residing in the region to leave within three months or be kicked out.

In a chat with newsmen in Zarai, Kaduna state today, the NEF spokesperson, Ango Abdullahi, said the Igbos cannot continue to reside in another region of the country when they are agitating for the secession of Nigeria to form their own country, Biafra.



According to him, it is a hypocritical act by the Igbos. He also berated the Kaduna and Borno state governors, Nasir El-Rufai and Kashim Shettima, for condemning the Northern youths and ordering their arrest.

“I am disappointed in the decision taken by Northern Governors’ Forum disowning and condemning the agitation by this young agile and progressive youth groups. Let me ask these Northern governors, whom are they representing, are they representing spirits, ghost or people of the north? Recently, people from eastern part of this country, specifically Igbo, were busy calling for the Sovereign State of Biafra and from all indication their leaders including governors are behind them.”he said
According to Ango, when Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indeginous People of Biafra IPOB, was released on bail recently, over 100 vehicles escorted him to his residence including big personalities from the south-west and south-east.
“This is somebody who has been agitating for the breakup of Nigeria but his people were behind him, therefore, I am behind the youths. This is because the northern youths are pushed to the wall, we have been calming them down in any event similar to this. These people always pretend that the north is cheating them, not minding the fact that southern Nigeria was developed by resources from the north. Please, look for a book written by Adamu FiKa, the Waziri of FiKa on Nigeria’s budget before and after independence. Each year, up to the time Nigeria gained its independence, none of the two regions was able to provide for itself. I mean none of the western and eastern regions had the money to effectively run the affairs of its region until they get financial support from the Northern region.”
Ango said it was the same money from the North that was used to construct Nigerian Railways, refineries and other facilities.
“First oil exploration was conducted using money from groundnut pyramid, cotton, hide and skin among other cash crops from northern Nigeria. However, these people tend to forget all these goodies provided by the North toward ensuring the unity and corporate existence of Nigeria. They always look down on us, feeling that Northerners are parasites in this country.”he said

OK old man if eventually eastern region got baifra,won't they be allowe to reside in Nigeria? Some chard, Ghanaians,n'd even Cameroonian still lieve in Nigeria, old man u no try don't want to insult u.

Femmy said...

The common man from the East though is motivated primarily by greed, such that they can not see that hypocrite asking for Eastern emancipation is only using them to acquire political relevance. The sad part of the story (if things go East) is that the hypocrite will run away like Odumagbu did and the same common greedy people will remain to groan in regret. I am advising the educated one that read comments to express the disapproval of this aggitation and instead hold their leaders accountable, thank you.

Civil war loading. These cows will seize upon any excuse to stage a pogrom against those they consider infidels. Students of history will remember that it was anti-igbo pogroms in the north that precipitated the declaration of Biafra and the civil war. On the bright side, this is the chance of the progressive south to rid itself of the retrogressive north once and for all.

Just imagine what a so called elder is saying. Instead of fighting for the unity of the country the so called elders forum are saying things that will instigate the disintegration of the country. War doesn't bear good fruits it always leaves bitter and sour taste on ppls tongue. We have to live together as one and concentrate more on the things that binds us rather than concentrate on the things that divid es us. We are Nigerians that should always come first. Together we can make this country work and great. Nigerian youths say NO to violence. Any elder instigating war should use their biological children to fight the war. Istandwith#IAmNigerian.

So what happened to your groundnut pyramid and animal hide and skin today? You got lazy and forgot about your groundnut pyramid, now you must hold a section of the country ransom and force them to stay as one because you must drink oil. While you continue to marginalize them. For how long did the money from groundout pyramid sustain the East and West? I'm asking because this everlasting parasite that you guys have become is looking like "forever". The Yorubas over to you guys, this man right here is,dragging you guys into it. He says they were feeding you people which I know he's lying. The Yorubas are known for producing cocoa and cola nut, while the Igbos are known for palm oil production and trading. I don't know where this Hausa man is getting his dumb facts from. Hausa never belle full, na to feed others, chai! Nothing wey person no go hear for Nigeria. Please can this country divide let us go our separate ways. Amalgamation of 1914, I curse the day you were made. Bringing different people and culture together as one is the greatest mistake the colonial masters made.

I think your comment can be debated. From where I stand, the world we know, for better or worse, was built on bloodshed. All progression and sourness around has stemmed from this excessiveness. Alas, I agree that whatever the resolve is it would be nice to undo our warring heritage for one.

Just curious, is it the agitation by some easterns that has left the north as the most underdeveloped part of this nation, or it is this agitation that has birthed the ideology called boko haram that has devastated the north....naija...people will just leave obvious problems facing them and clutch the unfortunate fall back position of ethnic bias...even when someone starts an intelligent contribution, once he slips on the ethnic banana peel, he suddenly loses his senses....we need to ask ourselves the simple question: is Nigeria working? if not why? the Igbos? or just just plane incompetence and greed and an obvious lack of vision for a country.... Not one leader,I repeat not one that I know of had a vision of where he wants nigeria to be in some future....it took Dubai just 25 years because they were thinking Dubai, not north, east or west dubai.....contunuu to abuse the next tribe weldone....u broke cos of them

GDK said...

i consider it very sad and pathetic to be honest that people are championing this folly called biafra, more disturbing is the fact that these people cant see through the thin veil of an ideology and leader (Nnamdi kanu and IPOB). This man is an egocentric ignoramus who is just looking for relevance and in his search is seeking to rip the nation apart. Most disturbing is that there is no real issue that forms the basis of this secessionist movement called biafra. The issues that neccesitated its conception in 1967 are non existent and the accompanying war resulted from the excessive pride and ego of the late dim ojukwu who felt confident in his supposed messianic cause (which he surprisingly fled from when the going was though). Funny thing is the Igbo elite are not voicing out against this idiocy, it is like they are secretly looking forward to the prospects of its succes; tall dreams must i say. If the entire igbo people or the disgruntled elements feel like they have a problem, there are appropriate channels for expressing grievances in a democracy which they should utilize instead of clamoring for war and secession like deranged baboons. if every grieved tribe or ethnic group decided decided that secession was the solution to "marginalization" then Nigeria would be non-existent by now. I mean it is simply preposterous to base arguments of marginalization on not having produced a president or vice president in 18 years of unbroken democracy, what now happens to the other 251 ethnic groups (excluding the yoruba, fulani/hausa and ijaw that have produced presidents)?, do they start inventing names for their utopian republics and start clamoring for it?. Let any reasonable individual in this "biafra" agitators group present a logical argument to disprove mine. Wisdom is profitable to direct... Ecclesiastes 10:10. G.D.E.K signing out.

Please forget these so called Northern Elders Forum are a bunch of old, disgruntled, self-seeking, attention-hungry fools, with no followership here in the north whatsoever. Forget the likes of Ango Abdullahi. We're just waiting for them to die her in the north. Useless people whose children are all abroad. They are here instigating other people's children to go die. They'll never see peace. Even in the afterworld.

How can an old man like this be telling barefaced lies? Oil exploration by Shell D'arcy (later Shell BP) was done PRIVATELY by Shell, from 1938 (when the first license was granted) till 1958 when the first oil was struck in Oloibiri. The first Refinery in Nigeria (old PH Refinery) was privately owned by Shell. The Nigerian government did not get involved in any oil activities till the early 70s when the first joint venture was signed. This information is freely available on the Internet. However the uneducated almarijis that this man is targeting will believe anything he says. This is an evil act!

So, the fact that groundnut was stored in the north, it means that it was produced there. Hmmmm! But I think that History as a subject was active during your days. It's unfortunate that you learnt nothing.

Cry, the beloved country. Naija would be such a great nation if most of her leaders jettisoned primordial ties of ethnicity/tribe/religion and whatever else. Yet, that sadly seems like a far-fetched dream that is unlikely to materialize. Suppose, even between dissenting married couple that's why there's a divorce option/clause in order, to protect life, dignity and posterity. Any wonder then, why the marriage alliance btw Naijas disconcerting partners must be reconstituted or dissolved, as the case applies? Can one have peace without justice? Will history actually repeat itself bcos both Naija youths and her elders refused to learn from it? May God forbid it. More importantly, may Naijas use their heads well in the pursuit of fairness and equity for all her peoples whether they choose to stay as one or divorce each other. Many nation-states have gone their seperate ways without bloodshed of the innocents and are worth emulating by Naija's powers in an increasingly global economy. The whole world is watching how this challenge is sorted out by Naijas, you all must know. Good luck. QED@atm

Indeed, this ango is a big full. He is even less intelligent than d nonentity youth and should be arrested with the youth. Intact, his statement indicates that he and his corhorts instigated the youth.
And of course, was the cocoa house in Ibadan built by the north groundnut money? At this point, if the fool like ango is claiming the other regions are feeding on the north, that is, the north are self sufficient, why don't they want the clamouring restructuring of the country or for each region to find there way?

Ango Abdullahi, the solution to your Igbo nightmare is very simple: Just withdraw your Northern Occupation Forces of soldiers, policemen, civil defense personnel, fulani herdsmen, other unformed exploiters and itinerant beggars from south eastern land and all will be well with you. It is silly of you to ask Ndi-igbo to quit your barren lands when all your depraved parasites are raping every inch of their homeland. Withdraw your parasites from igbo land first
