Extortionists, criminals behind resurgent agitation for Biafra – Obasanjo

Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Friday said took a swipe at those campaigning for a breakaway sovereign state of Biafra, suggesting that some people were using the Biafra agitation to enrich themselves criminally.

“There is even some suspicion that the agitators embarked on the act in order to extort money from outsiders and to also extract financial support from the government,” Mr. Obasanjo, who a veteran of the civil war that suppressed the original attempt at establishing Biafra, said in a lecture he delivered at an event organised by the Yar’Adua Centre and Nextier’s Development Discourse to commemorate the Armed Forces Remembrance Day.

“The commercialization and exploitation of Biafra agitation is obscene to the point of criminal fraudulence.

“Or, how do you explain the issuance of the so-called Biafran passport that takes anyone to nowhere and for which unwary people are being charged exorbitant prices.

“We must neither allow evil to find work for our youth nor to fill their unoccupied minds with satanic ideas, thoughts, decisions and actions.”

The former president also advocated good governance driven by fairness, justice, and a complete wellbeing of the citizenry at all levels as a means of quelling the agitation.

While warning that the country could not afford another civil war or a insurgency similar to that being fought in the North East of the country under any guise, Mr Obasanjo called for the youth leading the current agitation for the creation of Biafra to be educated on the implications of their actions.

“Above all things, good governance at all levels is the key solution. The welfare and wellbeing of the citizenry with equity, justice and fairness must be the main pre-occupation of government at all levels. It must also be the pre-occupation of the family and the community and all hands must be on deck,” he said.

“Nigeria cannot afford to go from Boko Haram insurgency to any other insurgency under any name or guise. And on no account should we wittingly or unwittingly allow this to happen again. Youth education, welfare, well-being, empowerment and employment for ever must be our collective duty, obligation and responsibility.”

He called on the leaders of the country, particularly in the South East, to take the lead in the drive to educate the youth.

“In my part of the world, when a young person behaves uncharacteristically, people ask, ‘Are there no elders in your family.’ It means that he or she has not been given an education and an awareness that is more than school education. Let us speak well of ourselves collectively and cohesively among ourselves,” the former President said.

While dismissing the agitation for Biafra as “futile”, “hopeless” and one that could only have a disastrous outcome, Mr. Obasanjo said he sees the present agitation as a “cry for attention” and a call for the improvement of the socio-economic condition in the South East.

Although he acknowledged that agitation as an approach to equitable socio-economic realities might not be a bad thing all together, he warned that it should not be taken too far.

“Biafra as a secession issue is dead and nobody should follow that way. It can again only lead to disaster,” he said. “But I see this resurgent Biafra agitation not for secession or creation of an independent entity from Nigeria but as a cry for attention, amelioration and improvement of socio-economic conditions and situation especially of the youth in Nigeria in general, but in the South-East in particular – a call by the youth of that region for transformation. I see it as a platform rather than a cause.”

The former president said the resurgent call for the creation of Biafra could be linked to the outcome of the 2015 election.

The South East voted en-mass for the losing candidate in the election, Goodluck Jonathan.

He said the situation in the South East during the election was similar to what happened in the South West in 1999 when voters in the region rejected his candidacy.

He said many voters in the South East may have refused to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari due to the wrong perception created during the campaign that he was a hater of Igbo people, a fundamentalist, and jihadist who was sponsoring the Boko Haram insurgency.

“Muhammadu Buhari was presented by his political detractors—and perceived by many honest Nigerians fooled by this dangerous rhetoric—as a rabid Moslem fundamentalist, who was secretly behind Boko Haram and who, on coming to power, would islamise the whole of Nigeria. I call this The Buhari bogey! The seemingly stern and starchy appearance of Buhari and his not being seen with any known close friend in the South-East outside his military colleagues aided the misperception.

“Voting along regional lines, or voting en-bloc against or for a candidate can be regarded as normal and should not by itself be a problem. But we must hold with apprehension the fear that led to such voting and its subsequent contribution to this resurgence of protests.”

He however called on Mr. Buhari to carry everybody in the country along irrespective of political inclination.

“The solution is first for leaders and elders in the South-East to caution realism and sanity among the youth and for the President to prove that Nigeria is his constituency, he should act like God who gives rain to the good and bad, the just and the unjust, in the world equally as the world belongs to God in totality,” he said.

    The silly youths will not agitate to fight corruption or agitate to demand for good governance and accountability but they will agitate for Biafra. This alone tells you that those behind the Biafra agitation are fraudsters employing clueless youths to do their evil bidding.

    • biafranow!!!

      @gugurusekpa:disqus

      Biafra will be impossible to stop having
      gone this far by printing travel passport in advance, with an internationally
      known flag, and quasi-diplomatic envoys appointed in every country. With
      international law as it stands today, no military force can be lawfully used
      to stop Biafra. The right to self-detrmination is a fundamental human right.
      Obasanjo does not know much. The Biafrans are not under obligation to
      remain in a country – Nigeria – that they do not wish to belong as a people.

    Lol…cowardly Yariba slaves are ashamed of their 400 years under Fulan enslavement and now they want to cover their CONTINUOUS ENSLAVEMENT by telling all others that they are also enslaved. But only among COWARDLY YARIBA SLAVES would such level of BAMBOOZLING fly……..COWARDLY YARIBA SLAVES sat there and HOUSE SLAVE OLUSEGU OBASANJO was imposed on YARIBA SLAVES to cover YARIBA SLOT.

    Read Yariba history from 16th century till date and all peoples know that effectively YARIBAS ARE UNDER ENSLAVEMENT: it is the EDO-ESAN, Portuguese, Fulani, British, and since 1966, Fulani.

    EVEN smaller in population IJAW nation produced a president with backbone than HOUSE SLAVE OLUSEGUN OBASANJO………

    AS slaves YARIBA SLAVES sat as that genocidal Awolowo was denied presidency by HOUSE SLAVE OBASANJO as a proxy for Yariba slaves’ Fulani masters. Same Yariba slaves sat cowardly in place when Abiola was denied the presidency by HOUSE SLAVES Obasanjo/Shonekan.

    Now that Igbos are 11 million in Lagos, YARIBA SLAVES have jettisoned their ODUDUWA out of fear that they would be dealt with if they start any ODUDUWA.

    No serious mind take YARIBA SLAVES seriously….YARIBA SLAVES ARE MERELY SITTING DUCKS or womn ready to accept ANY MAN who wins the next fight…….hahahaha

  • Shugaba Nkasa

    We have discussed this issue before.
    Why did this Biafra thing rear its ugly head only after Buhari became President? Simple.

    Nobody likes to lose! As if compelled by Amadioha himself, the whole South east voted against Buhari. Be mindful of our language. We said the whole South east voted AGAINST Buhari. None of us in the area cared who we voted for as long as the vote was against Buhari!

    When a group takes such an action and loose, the mind does silly things. To top it off, as if loosing was not bad enough, the South east also came out with the realization that their vote meant nothing! They can neither use it to elect a president or keep one from entering office…..and just like the tea party movement in America, we have the Biafra farce. It is quite elementary.

    Our only advice to the South east is to stop being selfish. We are all Nigerians. Let us make decisions that will benefit us all as opposed to decisions that come out of the most ungodly places in our hearts.

    • Otile

      You sound like a yariba wimp. Slavery is your lot forever, sorry.

      • Shugaba Nkasa

        What exactly is your fascination with slavery? You say things like this too often for it to be random.

        Our comment is painful but factual! You KNOW what we said is fact. Why else are you unable to contradict us……challenge anything we said above, and if you make an important point that contradicts us…we will thank you. Education and information sharing is after-all what we strive for the most.
        Don’t be shy….we only bite every once in a while…and we are willing to enter a bond with you promising not to bite you as long as you remain within the parameters of the subject at hand.

        P.s. We are Hausa/Fulani, Yoruba, and Igbo.

        • Otile

          When did one fictitious name Nkasa become ‘we’ as in multitudes of people? That depicts the highest form of arrogance. We Biafrans cannot succumb to a deluded yorobber addressing himself as ‘we’ just to intimidate people. This is how they come to own ilu Ilorin and wimpish yariba slaves chickened out.

  • IZON Redeemer

    Obj can hardly ever make sense in any of his regional Yoruba comments-Often designed to appease his Fulani masters for a fee–Is Obj saying those calling for the creation of Oduduwa Republic are Criminal also?The many demands and agitations of the various groups for separation in Nigeria, like in England, are legitimate and right and should be pursued vigorously by all of us who find ourselves living in Bonded geopolitical space of Nigeria. This is the right thing to do and there is nothing to be ashamed, naïve or self-conscious about the call for the creation of the Republic of Biafra. Right now, the various groups are expected to increase the tempo of their agitations in the creeks of the Niger delta with the growing satanic rule of Buhari. Most especially the Ijaw Nation now that oil is being sold at 5 cents, per a barrel! What is there to gain from our being together beyond the theft of my oil revenue by the Trpod-within the last 60 years? –Beyond the Harassment of Akpos of Nimasa by the Buhari Gestapo–ati the chase of Tompolo in the creeks by the Fualni soldiers of occupation in d SS? We expect to see an increase in action by the many ethnic or regional groups in the various areas of 9ja. We need more civil disobedience, conferences, rallies, protests, symposia, etc. All the groups should put more pressure on the rulers in Nigeria through the use of every possible legal means that will create real impact on them Regional thieves ruling us since 1960. So that the process of Nigeria’s disintegration can be accelerated and it will come quickly to free the oppressed ethnic peoples within the bonded enclaves of the country called Nigeria. For Freedom is our goal and not the fake rule of the Fulanis ati Yoruba traitors led by Obj.

    • Olu

      Yorubas would only pursue any course they belief worth pursuing in a civilized and violent free manner. Have you ever seen anyone protesting on the streets just to call for creation of Oduduwa nation? Think on it.

      • MC

        Yes. I have seen your ethnic army, OPC boys, killed three innocent young men in cold blood because they wanted to create the impression that they dealing with armed robbers. This took place in Surulere, Lagos.

      • Otile

        This kind of wimpishness is the reason Omo Odual lost Ilorin to the Fulani hersmen. Yoruba ronu.

    • Sparzo

      And what happens when all the agitation, presentations, rallies…whatever don’t work as is the case of Irish Nationalists? You take up arms?
      Or you start burning the second homes of Nigerians, like the Welsh Nationalists were burning 2nd homes of the English in Wales?

      Cut straight to the chase, as I am sure you know full well that,Nigeria will never sign over its south east and any other part of it, the so called biafrans want to take with them, without a quick and brutal war with ”Biafra”.

      • Otile

        What if the agitation succeeds as is the case in Sudan, E Timor, Eritrea? What if Odua people pick up courage and liberate Oduduwaland from the Fulani herdsmen? What if Buhari suffers stroke and Imam Abubakar overruns the Nigeria soldiers and actualize the Islamic Republic of Arewa? I mean, all these are possibilities. Sudan never thought they would loose their South, neither did powerful Indonesia think they would loose East Timor. Yoruba ronu.

        Are the Scottish people carrying dane guns or atomic bombs—against the british—–in their attempt to split away from the Queen of England–‘ mumu’-The trouble with the fear concerning Biafra is that those who have benefitted from the awoof oil revenue of the south south are afraid to loose their investments—-their looted oil wealth–what does the average izon man have to loose should Nigeria break up—nothing—He is already used to living in powerty—with the rich fulani ati yoruba land owners and their saintly Ibo surrogates-cheeeeeeers

        • Sparzo

          So you corvet Ijaw land too and some Efik land I am sure.
          Hering lies why biafra will always be an illusion,

          So why not start a biafran political party?
          You can do it too you know. Like the Scots.

          Oh I see. So you are now implying that only ‘cultural’ values matter and nothing’s wrong with leudness, incest/adultery like in the case of Obasanjo?

            Haba! When will you fellas stop peddling lies? Stop your deceptive generalisation, and rewriting of a most painful family feud.
            Fact is the former President had a relationship with his son ex-wife, before his son (Gbenga) met and fell in love with the said lady.
            Fact is the former President clearly advice his son like any father would give his 2 cents, do not to marry the lady. The former President should had given Gbenga a full disclosure of his past trysts with his ex-wife.

          • Otile

            What say ye about the son Obasanjo made with Moji long after her marriage with Gbenga? Obasanjo destroyed the good marriage between his son Gbenga and Moji. Don’t blame the victim, don’t blame Gbenga. Obasanjo had our sister Stella as his wife yet he was poking his dick into every cunt and bot he could hold with his own hands. Bad culture.

        • Otile

          This is nothing cultural about a man fucking_his son’s wife. He should respect himself and muzzle his mouth.

          • Sparzo

            I did not say your uncharacteristic filth peddling is cultural.

      • Lanre

        Thank you Otile. Obasanjo is a hypocrite. A bloody one at that. His kind thrive in Nigeria.

    • REDEEM

      Were the Yoruba elders who sold Kudirat Abiola to the Abacha Gestapo, who later assassinated her while Buhari was head of PTF in the government of Abacha, properly trained in Yoruba traditions and culture-? What about those the Akintola the Fulanis used to chase Awo-which later resulted in the operation wetie in the west?-Is Obj telling us that he took the wife of his son to bed, because she was not properly trained by her father’? That was why he Obj slept with her? Obj is only being celebrated in the South West by Yorubas and in the North by Fulanis–because of his evil ways——–period————– Can Obj point to one road that he tarred in the SS, during his 8 yrs misrule when oil was selling at $145 per barrel? —Rather than talk to those behind the separatist movement in the south east as an elder would to a son-he is trying to fuel the crisis————————-Such can only be done by a man who has no legacy top leave for his children and the Nation that wasted money on him in the army.

      • Lanre

        Please don’t mind Obasanjo. A man who is desperately trying to seek relevance. Since all the nonsense Obasanjo has been saying, since you knew him, has Nigeria improved. Let us assume Obasanjo is Nigeria’s Lee Kuan Yew. If he was a sincere man and not a Jekyll and Hyde character, would we not be seeing fundamental progress. His generation is a curse to all the youth who live in Nigeria. Their legacy is woe, poverty, disease and destruction.

    OBASANJO is afraid to be brought to justice

    General Obasanjo has three objectives for becoming a praise-singer here. One, he is looking for new contracts.
    Two, he wants to avoid the loss or punishment for old contracts he’d illicitly pocketed – including five oil wells in 2006,
    as exposed by Chatam House investigation in London in the oil-for-infrastructure deal with Asians – and including
    dark purchase of privatized corporations, such as Transcorp, and, for 10 billion contracts he’d awarded for electricity
    plants without any result. Three, he wants to be on Buhari’s side to buffer the likely reopening of the Halliburton bribe
    which the American administration insists must be prosecuted. Obasanjo is otherwise not usually a useless sycophant.
    He may be the most corrupt president Nigeria has ever had, O, yes, but he is not normally as scared of Biafra as this.

      General Obasanjo, read and be informed…….

      “President Buhari’s
      reform agenda appears to be sauntering out of the gates, according to
      the civil society-run Buharimeter. Oil revenues are down, currency value has
      slipped and Boko Haram has killed more than 1,700 since June. Buhari’s reform
      agenda probably faces its greatest threat from corrupt, old-school politicians
      within his own All Progressives Congress (APC) party. Buhari should neutralize
      some of the APC’s shadiest figures, who could emerge as “veto players,” as
      described in Carl LeVan’s recent book. Examples of these kleptocrats are not
      hard to find. The U.S. Department of Justice has accused one sitting APC
      governor of helping former dictator Sani Abacha steal at least $458 million

      from state coffers.”

    The only thing I took from Obasanjo’s usual gibberish this time is that Igbos have no elders. I hope the elders in Igbo land can give this wife snatcher the proper response. Awon agbaya ma danu ro.

    • Julius

      Why dont you do it for them and move to biafra ?

  • Arabakpura

    This from OBJ is a fair analysis of the situation! PMB should read and digest this!

  • Malchine

    OBJ is like a bloated stomach, from time to time it makes noise, kwrrrrrrrrrh, just to announce it is still there. I fail to understand why this old baba cannot give himself rest.

    • eddy

      If u have a stomach that lets out such noise, u should quickly go see a doctor as u certainly have an infection.

      • Malchine

        Dokto dokto! I like you big! So somebody wee be like that kind infected stomach, na e be say him get infection.

    Obasanjo was certainly not a poster child for good governance. The neo-Biafrans have been in operation since Obasanjo was is charge. Nonetheless, I still maintain today that there is a reason why he is saying this. I mean, look at the name of the Indigenous People of Biafra. They refer to this as saying that Biafra existed long before Nigeria was formed (and Nigeria also existed long before the British came) and link that to the Biafra of 1967. Yes, Biafra existed before the British came but it was mostly in what is modern day Cameroon so there goes the claims of being an indigenous person of Biafra right there. However, I think Obasanjo knows far more about this than what he is letting on.

    The reality on ground is that the average IBO man has a 419 tendency coupled with his half baked education. Having access to the world wide web can only exhibit his passionate and arrogantly ignorant state of mind. The problems faced in the southeast is rampant all over nigeria. GEJ and his crew could not solve it with all the wealth at his disposal. In the next 15 years we will have an IBO governor in lagos with the rising IBO population in lagos state. If they want to go let them go straight to Biafra and stop all this 419 nonsense. One would think the richest man in nigeria would be an IBO man with all this so claimed business and trader savvy.Even the dead are getting tired of this we are going rubbish. The penalty for treason is death by firing squad, being ignorant and passionate about a course is not an excuse.

  • Waalay Naija

    A man who has no respect for his elders cannot be led, as he cannot recognize his leader. Who are the elders and leaders of the illiterate IBO youths. Is it the British Nnamdi Kanu with his family in the UK….or a Pat Utomi or a Father Nbaka ….They say “fly wey no dey hear word na him dey follow dead body enter grave”

  • Waalay Naija

    The IBO man comes to our land to make money and prosper, he marries our sisters and daughters and leaves a good life without any disturbance, only for his fellow brothers to call us animals, living in a zoo. Surely that cannot be the hallmark of a good visitor.There is a limit to our tolerance and we too have feelings just as the IBOs do. A word is enough for the wise.

  • ceweeco projects

    What if an elder from Yuroba land eats the birth right of his children, Take his Son’s wife to bed, Sleep with his daughters. What is the culture and elders of that land do? Throw OWANBE party for him!! What a people!!!

    • Julius

      What if an elder from Ibo land kill a human being , cook and eat him/her for dinner. What is the culture and everybody of that land do ?. Throw a village party. What a people !!!

    The Otta incestuous baboon should just die.

    • okenwa

      Bros and i want to say again my brother, abegi wethin this man saw in his dream that make him wan die because of biafra. I think obasanjo is a big time supporter of biafra because all his statements indirectly giving support to biafra agitation. Bros the more obj attacks, the more biafra agitation gets strong. If nigeria has an inteligent leader, obj would have been behind bars.

      • Julius

        Yea, he wants you to surrender to him again Abi.lolz. You are good in doing that anyway.

    • Julius

      Keep dreaming !

  • maxnificio

    I think FELA made mega hit trying let us know that this fellow Mr OBASANJO was clearly a murderer, thief, fraud with great amount of criminal conspiracy and we still pay attention to his trash… when are we going to learn?

    • Waalay Naija

      Its called defamation of character and libelous statements are good grounds for litigation, even if you do it on the public world wide web aka internet.You will have to show who the man murdered, stole from and defrauded. Having access to the internet comes with some decorum Mr Maxnificio… A word is enough for the wise

      • Pause

        coward….no one cares about your e-threat. It can’t stop people from writing the truth. LIARS, CRIMINALS & deceitful people like your paymasters can’t hide in the www era. You may go to NASS to ban Internet as you want, it would not work. If your LYING, DECEITFUL, & CRIMINAL paymaster do not want to be focused on let them apologize or withdraw from public arena. MUMU!!

    • Julius

      hahahahaha, you must have been paying attention because you are ranting about him now. NIceeeeeeeee. lolz. Like he gives a shit about what you think.

  • Sunday OGUNKANMI

    Truth is bitter. OBJ has seen it all. The problem is instead of us to think well and address issues, we would always resort to abuses. Standard has really gone to the dogs in 9ja

    • Julius

      True. You know that OBJ doesnt give a hoot !. Love that man !!

  • Julius

    We all know that this agitation for biafra is a FRAUD !. The first person that told me that is an Ibo man. Again a wise man, General , elder statemman OBJ has spoken. lolz He told us what was going on with Jonathan, nobody listen but, now, we all know. I love when he says something and the Ibos go wild. Lmaooooooooooooo !!

    • Kickboxer

      Lol…cowardly Yariba slaves are ashamed of their 400 years under Fulan enslavement and now they want to cover their CONTINUOUS ENSLAVEMENT by telling all others that they are also enslaved. But only among COWARDLY YARIBA SLAVES would such level of BAMBOOZLING fly……..COWARDLY YARIBA SLAVES sat there and HOUSE SLAVE OLUSEGU OBASANJO was imposed on YARIBA SLAVES to cover YARIBA SLOT.

      Read Yariba history from 16th century till date and all peoples know that effectively YARIBAS ARE UNDER ENSLAVEMENT: it is the EDO-ESAN, Portuguese, Fulani, British, and since 1966, Fulani.

      EVEN smaller in population IJAW nation produced a president with backbone than HOUSE SLAVE OLUSEGUN OBASANJO…….

      AS slaves YARIBA SLAVES sat as that genocidal Awolowo was denied presidency by HOUSE SLAVE OBASANJO as a proxy for Yariba slaves’ Fulani masters. Same Yariba slaves sat cowardly in place when Abiola was denied the presidency by HOUSE SLAVES Obasanjo/Shonekan.

      Now that Igbos are 11 million in Lagos, YARIBA SLAVES have jettisoned their ODUDUWA out of fear that they would be dealt with if they start any ODUDUWA.

      No serious mind take YARIBA SLAVES seriously….YARIBA SLAVES ARE MERELY SITTING DUCKS or womn ready to accept ANY MAN who wins the next fight…….hahahaha

    Baba Obasanjo has every thing rigth about Buhari. Am seeing his family for the first time when he won the election. I ve never heared of his grand children also. I dont think Ive heard that he attended a social gathering of any type in addition to fact that ive not heard that over thirty years he left the millitary, he was busy up-dating his knowledge in any superior instiution of learning. Now tell me what this man was doing for the past donky years. Baba Obasanjo was a father of extraordinary example. Up till date, he still remain a struggling man,not minding all good things at his disposal. I still maintain that the form of Buhari still remainds me of general utsman Kastina, the man who lead the brutal massacar of Ndigbo in the north and was proud to say that he would repeat this act if given another opportunity. Buhari cannot change and the change of his party cannot have any effect. Everybody in this country can see that the economy of Nigera is now a laughing stock. Fighting curruption as if it is the only problem of nigeria indicates that the ruling party has no working manufesto. Buhari cannot get any vote from Igbo land because he is anti IGBO.

  • Tony Nwosu

    Baba, you are 100% right in this one and that is why many Ibos are no more interested in the cause of the so called Biafran struggle.

      Sir,
      at this point in time, we find it necessary to respectfully invite you to go f*ck yourself!

        Oga at the top, olodo, son of two mumus….I suggest respectfully that you step back and begin to stare at FACTS/TRUTH, in your own interest.

  • kofuche

    Obasanjo should test the validity of his assertions by giving way to a referendum.
