    Great news. No biafrauds among the appointees.
    We dont want any biafraud to be appointed to any post in our great country Nigeria , since they all biafrauds hate us and call us ” monkeys ” , living in the ” zoo’.
    biafrauds should pack up and go back to biafraud.
    Nigeria is for Nigerians , and not for the perpetually bitter and frustrated , nattering nabobs of negativism , and enemies of the state, who call themselves biafrauds.
    Go , and dont let the door hit you on your way out.
    Good riddance to bad rubbish.
    Sai Baba.
    Sai Buhari.
    Sai Nigeria.
    Go to hell biafraud, land of the setting sun.


    The institutional exclusion of the SE continues making the struggle for Biafra very legitimate. The Igbo have no future in Nigeria so every effort must be directed to the liberation of Igbos from the Apartheid system .
