The South-east governors on Wednesday said dialogue and not confrontation was the only panacea needed to solve the agitation by the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB.

The governors had a meeting on Wednesday with the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, at the Government House, Enugu.

The governors, it was gathered, told the IPOB leader during the meeting that the group’s demands ‘must not be absolute.’

The forum also promised to engage the entire leadership of IPOB in further dialogue to address their demands.

The meeting commenced at about 2 p.m. and ended by 4.30 p.m.

Mr. Kanu arrived Enugu Government House around 1.30 p.m. in the company of a constitutional lawyer, Ben Nwabueze, who is also the leader of Igbo Leaders of Thought, ILT, and Eliot Uko, deputy secretary of ILT.

The Chairman of the South-east Governors Forum and Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi; Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi; and Anambra Deputy Governor, Nkem Okeke, were present at the meeting.

The Imo and Abia governors, Rochas Okorocha and Okezie Ikpeazu, were said to have travelled outside the county.

Mr. Umahi, who read the communiqué after the meeting, spoke on the outcome.

“The meeting agreed that these demands by IPOB should not be absolute, rather the South-east Governors shall immediately engage the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, and the entire leadership of IPOB to further meetings and dialogue with a view to quickening the resolutions of all issues amicably,” Mr Umahi said briefly.

The meeting with the IPOB leader may not be unconnected with the recent move by the federal government to re-arrest him on alleged violations of his bail condition. Mr Kanu is currently on bail after being charged with alleged treasonable offences.

Mr. Kanu in a recent reaction dared the federal government to arrest him.

Kanu is currently agitating for a sovereign state of Biafra.

    Like a child of destiny, thou pesevereth

    Besieged by the chariots and swords of the wicked usurpers
    Yet thine armour of conscience hold superior

    Beriddled by lies and propaganda of the hypocrites
    Yet thine light of truth shineth forth

    Be it tomorrow, be it a light year.
    Thine quest for freedom shall sustain

    Freedom is thine portion and relentlessly must thee march
    Peace is thine culture and bravely must thee march

    Jehova is thine God
    Respect for mankind but thou feareth no man that walketh the earth !!

          what concerns you if he annexes, the Rivers, are you a Rivers-man? what relationship have you with the Rivers-man apart from milking his God given resources? Your part of the country hates the Rivers-man with passion, your fear is that if rivers goes you will starve. be it known to you that you don’t have any relationship with my people be it cultural, marital or any definable item of relationship, your method has always been to separate us, so that like hyena you can feed on the carcass, you have been exposed. End of the road for you, no food for the lazy-man, go hug the transformer.

    Chineke! If you want proof of how stúpid a lot of Igbos leaders are — albeit they think that only the opposite applies to them –, this meeting with Kanu is one evidence.

    The meeting will boost his profile and belittle theirs. Indeed these governors played into his hands,and now he owns them; he can milk them for cash, contracts and make them even feel that they need his endorsement, come their re-elections.

    Don’t these governors have brains to think about the consequences of such a meeting — with someone facing charges of treason and on bail pending being return to prison? Chineke! what a bunch of mumus. They could have sent their advisers to a secret meeting with the effing Kanu and deny it, if it comes out. But to appear by themselves makes them amateurs and even benighted politicians.

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      Truely you just thought like a perverted being.The iGBOS WILL DECLARE THESE GOVERNORS PERSONA-NON-GRATA IN NO TIME HENCE THAT SMART INITIATIVE. THEY KNOW WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF THE CHEATING IN THE NIGERIAN UNION. BUHARI OPENED IT UP EVEN FOR THE BLIND TO SEE AND FEEL !!

      • thusspokez

        The effing Kanu is looking for chop, He wants oil block and once he gets it, the onye ori will abandon all his supporters as Dim Ojukwu had done before him.

            Meanwhile let us look at the facts.
            12 million children are out of school in Nigeria. Out of the 12 million, 10 million are from the north whilst Kano state alone has 3 million beggars.
            Nigeria has the highest number of young girls suffering from Vesico Vaginal Fistula (VVF) in the world. And 90 per cent of those young girls are from the north.
            According to the UNDP 72 per cent of northern Nigerians are living below the poverty line.
            According to UNICEF if Nigeria were to ever break up the core north would be the poorest and most barren place on the African continent.
            According to Nasir El Rufai, the Governor of Kaduna state in northern Nigeria, if the north-western zone of the country were to ever find itself on its own it would be poorer and more ravaged by war than Afghanistan.
            According to the World Terror Index Boko Haram and the Fulani militias are the first and fourth “most deadly terrorist organisations in the world” respectively and they both come from northern Nigeria.
            According to UNESCO 65 million Nigerians, which represents 50 per cent of the total population!) are stark illiterates and 55 million of them are from the north.
            According to UNICEF the heartland and base of pedophiia, child sex, child slavery and child marriage on the African continent is northern Nigeria.
            According to President Donald Trump of the United States of America “northern Nigeria is one of the most dangerous places for Christians to live in the world” and “Christians are murdered there in their thousands every year whilst Churches are blown up and burnt down”.
            According to CNN “the bastion of radical Islam, Islamic terror and Islamic fundamentalism in Africa is northern Nigeria”.
            According to Governor Yari of Zamfara state in north western Nigeria the north has been afflicted with all manner of diseases and epidemics, including meningitis, as a consequence of their many sins against Allah.
            According to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo the northern states “have the highest infant and maternal mortality rates in the country, the lowest rate of child enrolment in schools, the highest number of unemployed young people, the highest levels of poverty and faces the challenge of inter-ethic and inter-religious conflict including the Boko Haram terrorism.”
            All these daunting challenges, disturbing facts and alarming statistics and instead of putting their house in order the Arewa Youth Coalition not only threaten the Igbo with mass murder and genocide and order them to leave the north by October 1st but they have also gone a step further by insulting the Yoruba and accused us of being “serial traitors” and of “trying to impose Osinbajo on Nigeria as President”.

        • Black power

          Biafraud is a matter of time. The SE Governors know whats at stake here, cowanus wants recognition by all means necessary and just that he will get and nothing more, his sponsors can see it clearly that hes a bad investment afterall. I would really love to see biafraud achieved and see where they go from there.

            There is something inherently wrong when a Yoruba king or Oba wears emir headscarf. There is nothing Yorubaness about it all. Any Yoruba Oba should wear “Fila” to fit appropriately. Anything else is a symbol of conquest and slavery. Yoruba people have been conquered in Kwara and they need to free themselves first from Fulani hegemony and then from Saraki dynasty. Saraki’s enslavement will be realized sooner, but Fulani domination may be a tall order and would need every Yoruba man’s help!

    • Cypo

      Sorry, the idea for the meeting was not about any federal government treath, rather it was about the November 18 2017 governorship election in Anambra. The agenda for the meeting was made known by the CPS to Ebonyi State governor. You may have also read from the CPS release that the governors have tried before now to hold a secret meeting with Kanu but he rejected all the approaches. So, all your permutations and conspiracy theories have fallen flat. Go and read the press release by the CPS to governor of Ebonyi state about the meeting, and maybe it will help you to just keep silent.

      • thusspokez

        What is the problem with most of you. Can’t you read properly and reflect on what you have read properly before responding?

        I don’t care about the idea behind the meeting. As elected representatives of their people, they shouldn’t be having any meeting with Kanu. It is a stúpid thing to do.

        • Reginald Dandeson

          Mr Spoke, as I can remember, you did not show any reaction like this over the meeting of Governor Shettima of Borno State and the Arewa Youth Forum who issued quit notice to Ndigbo who live in the North. Why?

          • thusspokez

            You have the mind of a simpleton. The mind of a simpleton cannot comprehend objectivity — it finds objectivity, an alien concept. The simpleton believes that one must be Yoruba, Hausa, Fulani, Kanuri, etc., if one criticises an Igbos person. Well piss off simpleton! I don’t do tribalism.

          • Reginald Dandeson

            Hahaha. I just tried to prove to everyone that any news about Ndigbo gives you organ erection and helps you satisfy your woman temporarily. You are free to troll on here with insults but someday you’ll get tired of it. Just answer my question and stop beating about the bush uselessly.

          • Gabriel

            What the hell are you doing in the north in the first instance?? Your blood soaked and cursed land that your people only visit during Xmas and new year?? WHAT IS WRONG WITH BRAIN OF THE BIAFRAN?

          • Reginald Dandeson

            Am earning a decent living in the North, if you must know, because am a Nigerian. My Garden City, if you know where that is, is a land you all crave to own property and businesses in.

            That’s an aside anyways. You don’t even seem to get the point I was driving at with Mr Spoke. If something happens in the North condemn it. If it happens in the South condemn it equally. Don’t keep mute when it happens in one region and then get vocally agitated and genitally aroused when it happens in another region. If you follow this simple approach you can become a better Nigerian.

      Heros are born, not made. Ever heard of that? The circumstances of Nnamdi Kanu’s positive rise to limelight in the affairs of Nigeria confirm that simple age old adage. So, don’t let envy and jealousy of the young man make you commit unnecessary suicide. Just advising you, in case you have dependants.

      • Jackson

        Envy?:’_-$$*-*”? Now I know for sure that the igbos are demented! It’s time to boycott igbos businesses, we’ll do excellently well without them, they’re all criminals and cheats!

        • Reginald Dandeson

          Envy, yes!!! You see, experience counts. I’ve been following issues on this forum and a keen observation confirms to me that most people who hate Kanu with passion on here do so out of envy. They wonder, how can this obscure, unknown and insignificant young guy get suddenly thrust into limelight overnight?

          But I tell you, many had exactly the same attitude towards Otunba Ganiyu Adams of Oduduwa Land when he rose from obscurity as OPC member and started challenging the tactics of Dr Frederick Faseun, the original founder and leader of the OPC. Today, Gani Adams sits in the midst of the high and mighty of Yorubaland and is now accepted as an authentic leader of a respected and feared group of people in the land. Give Nnamdi Kanu his break, please. He has earned it.

          There is something inherently wrong when a Yoruba king or Oba wears emir headscarf. There is nothing Yorubaness about it all. Any Yoruba Oba should wear “Fila” to fit appropriately. Anything else is a symbol of conquest and slavery. Yoruba people have been conquered in Kwara and they need to free themselves first from Fulani hegemony and then from Saraki dynasty. Saraki’s enslavement will be realized sooner, but Fulani domination may be a tall order and would need every Yoruba man’s help!

      You are having a sleepless night because Biafrans said they are leaving, how about when we have left, I’m beginning to reason you can’t survive without us, parasites everywhere.

        Why all this long grammar, just go and let’s see what will happened. Long before the coming of Nigeria the various ethnic nationalities existed and survived, I see no proof that they will seize in existence because of the exit of miscreants.

      The almajiries that issued a quit notice even met with your president.

  • Cypo

    Premium Times you can avail yourself the press release by the CPS to Ebonyi State governor about the meeting. He made release before the meeting. He cited the governorship election in Anambra state next November as a major AGENDA of the meeting. We all are aware that IPOB called for boycot of the election. He cited the fact that the governors had tried before now to meet with Kanu secretly, but Kanu rejected such invitations. So, it has nothing to do with Buhari government treath.

  • On Biafra we stand

    All we are saying is, restore sense into his skull.

  • blackdove

    Ibos have no leader. Never had, and never will. Imagine state governors meeting with a complete lowlife who lived on welfare in London for many years. Unless this governors are part of his sponsorship.

      Haba!!! Don’t let envy and jealousy of the young man kill you o o. Now I really see and understand, from the language you used here, that your ranting about Kanu is borne of envy and jealousy.

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      Your AREWA governors actually assembled Boko-haram and created the worst terrorist outfit in Africa then last week they actually sat in the Hilton Abuja with criminals threatening the genocide of an entire tribe ,That is why they cannot arrest them, they are their boys.

      Now see the difference, Kanu is with the vast majority of the SE PEOPLE, EVEN THOSSE WHO DISLIKE HIS APPROACH STILL ACCEPT THAT THERE IS NEED FOR THE SE TO RESIST THE CHEATING OF THE FULANI CABAL AT ASO-ROCK.

    Whatever the high level meeting/s held by the South-East state governors, with the indicted treasonable-felon, will yield nothing positive result because,those state governors,lack the influence and power to persuade or change the security priority policy of president Muhammadu Buhari and the security council of Nigeria-state.Those state governors, would either be for Nigeria, or against the indivisible Nigeria-state.Anyone like the Biafra Republic agitator,Nnamdi Kanu, who professes for the break-up of Nigeria-state entity, should be destroy and completely eliminated by Nigeria security forces without let or hindrance.

      It’s a pity there is Dr.attached to your name which supposedly mean a man of education and social intelligence but your assertion betrayed you. In your opinion Nigeria is a divine and natural creation that can not be altered and any alteration must be obliterated. King George of England said so during American war of independence but today is American not free? That is self determination. The structure of Nigeria will definitely be balkanize and Biafra will emerge and I pray people like you will be alive to witness the fruition of Biafra. To you self determination is a treasonable crime but the civilized world that we belong said otherwise. Mayopia and parochialism are two dangerous maladies,you need help.

            Fighting for Yorubas against who? A cultured Yoruba do not individuals but what those individuals stand for! We have always been known to be in the forefront of struggles for probity, good governance and a true federal structure.

            Can we said that of Ibos?

          • U. K. Charles

            The Yoruba are known for having their tongues in their cheeks. Fright and flight is synonymous with the Yoruba. When at the forefront of struggles, as you posited, when the heat is intense, the Yoruba man takes a flight!! We know you just for that!!!

      While you are having sleepless nights on the Biafra issue, here’s food for thought…!!!

      Mr. Nethanyahu said:

      Only 70 years ago! The Jews were taken to slaughter like sheep.
      60 years ago!
      No country. No Army.

      Seven Arab countries declared war on the small Jewish state, only a few hours after its creation!
      We were 650 Jews against the rest of the Arab world!

      NO IDF (Israel Defense Army).

      No powerful air force, only brave people with nowhere to go.
      Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Egypt, Libya, Saudi Arabia all attacked at the same time.
      The country that the United Nations gave us was a 65 % desert.
      The country is out of nowhere!

      35 years ago! We fought the three armies most Powerful in the middle east, and we swept them in six days.

      We fought against various coalitions of Arab countries, which had modern armies and many Soviet weapons, and we have always beaten them!

      Today we have:
      a country,
      an army,
      a powerful air force,
      A State-of-the-Art Economy, which exports millions of dollars.
      Intel – Microsoft – ibm develops products at home.
      our doctors receive awards for medical research.

      We make the desert bloom, and sell oranges, flowers and vegetables all over the world.
      Israel has sent its own satellites into space!
      three satellites at the same time!
      We are proud to be at the same rank as:
      The United States, which has 250 million inhabitants,
      Russia, which has 200 million inhabitants,
      China, which has 1.3 billion inhabitants;
      Europeans – France, Great Britain, Germany – with 350 million inhabitants.

      the only countries in the world to send objects into space!
      Israel is now part of the family of the nuclear powers, with the United States, Russia, China, India, France, and Great Britain.

      (we have never officially admitted it, but everyone knows it) and say that only 60 years ago,
      we were LED, ashamed and hopeless, to slaughter!
      we have extirpés the smoking ruins of Europe,
      we have won our wars here with less than nothing
      we built our little “Empire” from nothing.

      Who’s Hamas to scare me?
      to terrify me?
      you make me laugh!
      Passover was celebrated;
      Let’s not forget what this is about.
      we survived Pharaoh,
      we survived the Greeks,
      we survived the Romans,
      we survived the inquisition in Spain,
      we have the pogroms in Russia,
      we survived Hitler,
      we survived the Germans,
      we survived the Holocaust,
      we survived the armies of seven Arab countries,
      we survived saddam.
      we will survive the enemies present

      Think of any time in human history!

      Think about it, for us, the Jewish people,
      the situation has never been better!
      then let’s face the world,

      Let us remember:
      all nations or cultures
      who once tried to destroy us,
      no longer exist today – while we still live!
      Egypt?
      the Greeks?
      Alexander of Macedonia?
      the Romans? (does anyone still speak Latin these days? )
      The Third Reich?
      and look at us,
      The Bible Nation,
      The slaves of Egypt,
      We are still here,

      And we speak the same language!
      then, and now!
      Arabs don’t know yet,
      but they will learn that there is a God.
      as long as we keep our identity, we are forever.

      So forgive us for not worrying,
      not to cry,
      not to be afraid.
      things are fine here.
      they could certainly get better,

      However:
      Don’t believe the media,
      they don’t tell you
      parties continue to take place,
      people continue to live,
      people keep coming out,
      people continue to see friends.

      Yes, our morale is low.
      so what?

      Only because we mourn our deaths while others rejoice in the blood shed.

      that is why we will win, in the end.

      Never sleep or sleep the guardian of Israel! Yahweh God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

    • Chukwuka Okoroafor

      Haven’t you figured out yet that there are reasons for this agitation in the first place? I mean, even you were bringing up these issues just three years ago when Jonathan was in office.

          Meanwhile let us look at the facts.
          12 million children are out of school in Nigeria. Out of the 12 million, 10 million are from the north whilst Kano state alone has 3 million beggars.
          Nigeria has the highest number of young girls suffering from Vesico Vaginal Fistula (VVF) in the world. And 90 per cent of those young girls are from the north.
          According to the UNDP 72 per cent of northern Nigerians are living below the poverty line.
          According to UNICEF if Nigeria were to ever break up the core north would be the poorest and most barren place on the African continent.
          According to Nasir El Rufai, the Governor of Kaduna state in northern Nigeria, if the north-western zone of the country were to ever find itself on its own it would be poorer and more ravaged by war than Afghanistan.
          According to the World Terror Index Boko Haram and the Fulani militias are the first and fourth “most deadly terrorist organisations in the world” respectively and they both come from northern Nigeria.
          According to UNESCO 65 million Nigerians, which represents 50 per cent of the total population!) are stark illiterates and 55 million of them are from the north.
          According to UNICEF the heartland and base of pedophiia, child sex, child slavery and child marriage on the African continent is northern Nigeria.
          According to President Donald Trump of the United States of America “northern Nigeria is one of the most dangerous places for Christians to live in the world” and “Christians are murdered there in their thousands every year whilst Churches are blown up and burnt down”.
          According to CNN “the bastion of radical Islam, Islamic terror and Islamic fundamentalism in Africa is northern Nigeria”.
          According to Governor Yari of Zamfara state in north western Nigeria the north has been afflicted with all manner of diseases and epidemics, including meningitis, as a consequence of their many sins against Allah.
          According to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo the northern states “have the highest infant and maternal mortality rates in the country, the lowest rate of child enrolment in schools, the highest number of unemployed young people, the highest levels of poverty and faces the challenge of inter-ethic and inter-religious conflict including the Boko Haram terrorism.”
          All these daunting challenges, disturbing facts and alarming statistics and instead of putting their house in order the Arewa Youth Coalition not only threaten the Igbo with mass murder and genocide and order them to leave the north by October 1st but they have also gone a step further by insulting the Yoruba and accused us of being “serial traitors” and of “trying to impose Osinbajo on Nigeria as President”.

      The name (Bight of) Biafra (like Lagos) is Portuguese — given to them by early Portuguese explorers. Isn’t it funny that the self-proclaimed most-intelligent people on earth can’t even think of an original (Igbo) name to call their dream country? Instead, they chose a Portuguese name.

      According to Governor Yari of Zamfara state in north western Nigeria the north has been afflicted with all manner of diseases and epidemics, including meningitis, as a consequence of their many sins against Allah.
      According to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo the northern states “have the highest infant and maternal mortality rates in the country, the lowest rate of child enrolment in schools, the highest number of unemployed young people, the highest levels of poverty and faces the challenge of inter-ethic and inter-religious conflict including the Boko Haram terrorism.”
      All these daunting challenges, disturbing facts and alarming statistics and instead of putting their house in order the Arewa Youth Coalition not only threaten the Igbo with mass murder and genocide and order them to leave the north by October 1st but they have also gone a step further by insulting the Yoruba and accused us of being “serial traitors” and of “trying to impose Osinbajo on Nigeria as President”.

        Then why were you crying when they gave you notice to vacate their land ?

        • Chym

          Crying? You must be mad. We’re waiting for referendum

            Typical biafool bully , waiting for something you are not working for…oh wait, you are waiting for Trump, right ?

    The Igbo want to separate and the Yoruba want to separate. The middle Belt want to separate.
    Unfortunately the Fulani’s colonial caliphate regime want to preserve the ill gotten advantages they have because of the Northern Muslin Military imposed constitution and changes.

        If you want to go, just go. Who is holding you?

        This is the question that I have asked more than a dozen times. The Igbo states could simply issue a Universal Declaration of Independence (UDI) and leave Nigeria. Nigeria will have nothing to gain, stopping them unless they try to claim other parts of Nigeria.

        The departure of the 5 Igbo states will be a win-win for Nigeria and the remaining 31 states — who will see increase in their revenue allocations — they will be share the revenue allocation currently given to the 5 Igbo states.

        • Charles

          keep dreaming of remaining 31 state, the niger delta states will also go and then it will remain 25 states and then it will be win-win for Nigeria, there will be increase in their revenue allocation.

        • Julius

          I’ve been saying almost the same thing for the longest. You would think they would have done that if they are serious. Me think it’s all a fraud.

            Care chei, a whole Ndigbo, the most powerful tribe on the planet with a brand new nuclear weapon is begging for referendum ? You need to be ashamed of yourselves.

          • thusspokez

            Read your history: These kinsmen of yours were once migrant labourers and slaves employed by wealthy Niger Delta merchants.

            After the trade with Europeans had dried up, they were allowed to stay and not forced to return to their Igbo hinterland. What makes you think that you have right to claim these Niger Delta states as part of biafra? Because of the few descendants of migrant Igbo labourers and slaves?

      Well said Bro! Without oil proceeds northern Nigeria ll be in abject poverty like Niger and Somalia. Take the oil factor out of the equation the North would have broken away from this pseudo-amalgamation orchestrated in 1914 without recourse to the people. United Nations and African Union Charter on Human and People’s rights is very explicit on SELF DETERMINATION. Interestingly Nigeria is a signatory to both Chatters! !

          • Julius

            Nobody is holding them back. They are the ones that do not want to leave. Case in point, the vacate notice the Arewa boys sent to them. What happened with that ? You people really need to stop making that excuse that somebody don’t want you to go. JUst leave !

          • okenwa

            Why do you want to re arrest Nnamdi Kanu who is already in his biafraland back to abuja prison and what is your army still doing in biafraland. Animal.

          • Julius

            He violated the bail conditions he signed and agreed to when they let him out of jail. Got it ?. The jobless moron need to be locked up . They will lock him up and y’all will be making noise like you know how to do.

          Meanwhile let us look at the facts.
          12 million children are out of school in Nigeria. Out of the 12 million, 10 million are from the north whilst Kano state alone has 3 million beggars.
          Nigeria has the highest number of young girls suffering from Vesico Vaginal Fistula (VVF) in the world. And 90 per cent of those young girls are from the north.
          According to the UNDP 72 per cent of northern Nigerians are living below the poverty line.
          According to UNICEF if Nigeria were to ever break up the core north would be the poorest and most barren place on the African continent.
          According to Nasir El Rufai, the Governor of Kaduna state in northern Nigeria, if the north-western zone of the country were to ever find itself on its own it would be poorer and more ravaged by war than Afghanistan.
          According to the World Terror Index Boko Haram and the Fulani militias are the first and fourth “most deadly terrorist organisations in the world” respectively and they both come from northern Nigeria.
          According to UNESCO 65 million Nigerians, which represents 50 per cent of the total population!) are stark illiterates and 55 million of them are from the north.
          According to UNICEF the heartland and base of pedophiia, child sex, child slavery and child marriage on the African continent is northern Nigeria.
          According to President Donald Trump of the United States of America “northern Nigeria is one of the most dangerous places for Christians to live in the world” and “Christians are murdered there in their thousands every year whilst Churches are blown up and burnt down”.
          According to CNN “the bastion of radical Islam, Islamic terror and Islamic fundamentalism in Africa is northern Nigeria”.

            Nigeria has a lot of work to do rather than the ongoing shadow chasing and elevation of nepotism and ethnicity.

          Onion, garllic and tomato abi? Do you have fufu, garri,, rice, cocoyam, yam, bitter leaf, ogbono, nsara soup, okra, red oil, ukwa, efi igbo etc. All these are igbo steple food and all are produced in igbo land. Remain with your agriculture so that we have peace and fresh air.

            Lol.

      I guess you are ignoring their calls for referendum for biafraud. They gave the biafools a note to move back to their land and have their country…right ? Why can’t you mention that or you are just playing to the cheap sit in the arena .

  • ijelu

    This was a useless meeting, aimed at furthering the governors’ selfish agenda. I was expecting the governors to promise IPOB that they would engage the federal government to begin restructuring, as a compromise. The governors don’t want Biafra so they can keep stealing the people’s money. See how wretched the south-eastern towns look. What makes them think the Igbos will perish without oil money? Taiwan has no oil, Japan has no oil, Germany has no oil, China has no oil, South Korea has no oil, Israel has no oil, India has no oil, South Africa has no oil. If the Igbos are ready to work hard, oil or no oil means nothing. Arewa wants one nijeriya because they know they hate work, so they must depend on free revenue from oil.

      True but none of these countries you mentioned are landlocked countries so you must all think deeply before embarking on this mission.South Sudan and Pakistan who made the same move are today worse off for it,

      • Chym

        NOT MANY NIGERIANS recall that Southern Cameroons was part of eastern region of Nigeria until 1958 when the British colonial government granted the secession demand of the Cameroonian leader, Dr. E.M.L. Endeley, to merge with French Cameroons (to form today’s Cameroon. Rather than crush that secession threat by unleashing army terror, the British colonial government organised a plebiscite to determine the wishes of Southern Cameroonians to either secede or remain with Nigeria. That is today’s exact principle of self-determination under the United Nations charter. Southern Cameroonians voted for secession.

        We must, therefore, see secession clause as a constant in Nigeria’s constitutions to serve as a warning to Federal Government on neglect or injustice to (any) parts of the country that may be concerned. Today’s agitators for secession must be treated equally as secessionist agitators of the past, who succeeded painlessly in achieving redress or ultimate goal listed above. Stiff opposition to another civil war to contain secession threat should not be seen as in favour only Biafran agitators. In a country like Nigeria, after South-east, the next agitators for secession may be from South-South or South-west. Wait for this. The next agitation for secession may even be from any of the zones in, if not the entire North.

        In effect, all along, Eretria was an economic burden on pre-secession Ethiopia. In addition, the total number of landlocked countries in Africa is sixteen, namely: Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Central African Republic, Chad, Ethiopia, Lesotho, Malawi, Mali, Niger, Rwanda, Swaziland, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

        Throughout the world, such landlocked countries are over sixty. Among them are Austria, Switzerland, Serbia and Macedonia, both from the disintegrated federation of Yugoslavia; Hungary, Slovakia, Czech, Kazakhstan, Laos, Luxembourg, etc. Yet, Switzerland and Austria are two of the strongest economies in the world.

        In any part of the world, demands for secession always arise from political grievances accumulated over years and government response is to look into such grievances. Scots are neither Biafrans nor Niger Deltans.

        Nigeria has both oil and sea for over 50years and what are the benefit to her?

        • Sir Louis

          True. Resources and access to the sea on their own cannot bring development. Leadership and its level of commitment, honesty and transparency. Also hard work plus the level and types of education and skill of the population is what brings development when utilised by a good leadership.

    • Julius

      You are trying to be clever by half. Wasn’t it the ipob ranting that other parts of the country can’t make it without oil ? You conveniently forgot that simple point. It’s one of their rallying cry that other states depends on their imaginary oil money. If your point is they can make it without oil why would you think others can’t do the same ? Be factual.

  • Charles

    Kanu is a child of necessity, he came with a message and his people wasted no time in embracing it because when they look around them there was every reason to believe his message, they never rejected his message because there was no other counter message.
    The only way the Nigeria establishment can defeat Kanu is to give his people reason why
    they should reject his message, the use of AK-47 cannot defeat a dispensation whose time has come, intimidation and threats are archaic method of conflict resolution, it is now your points against my point. Kanu derive his power from the people and this will be put to test on the day of anambra election and until then people when never realize the wind of change in our mist. The struggle is not about Kanu, but about his people, the struggle is not a call for another way, but a call for another peaceful opportunity to end a union that never worked, a union where one party is born to run and another born to follow without complain. The union should not be liken ridding on a lion and a soon as you descend the lion will threaten to eat you up.

    5. Apapa Amusement Park
    6. Maiyegun Land Project

    8. Renaissance Hotel
    9. Tejuoso Market (Joint ownership)
    10. Ikeja Shopping Mall
    11. TV Continental
    12. Converted Lagos Poly land for TVC
    13. Owned NNPC Office building in Lagos
    14. Radio Continental
    15. Owned School of Nursing building in Lagos
    16. Tax Collector of Lagos State (Alpha Beta)
    17. Wife is a member of the National Assembly
    18. Son-in-law is a member of the National Assembly
    19. Daughter is the President-General of Market Women Association in Lagos
    20. N4 billion government financed property for self at Queens Drive, Lagos.
    Tinubu acquired all of the above and many more not listed after he became Governor of Lagos State, first in 1999 and won his second term in 2003. He remains Governor Emeritus of Lagos, controlling the State’s treasury through his protege Governor Fashola.

    But EFCC will never hunt for him and his followers will say he’s not CORRUPT. Until we are ready to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Politicians will keep taking us for a ride….Thief nah thief
