"Nigerian Youths Are Lazy", Jubril, A Foreigner Insults Nigerian Citizens; The Undiscerning Youths Called For It



 By Eluwa Chidiebere Chinazu | Biafra Writers

April 23, 2018

Our people usually say that if you don't appreciate noise making while cooking, do not try to buy foodstuffs on credit. Recently, Nigerian youths have been so wounded and their name dragged through the mire by the utterances ensuing from their president. Nigerian youths across all works of life, within and outside the country has continued to pour out their frustrations and anger at their president, Rtd. General Muhammadu Buhari for describing them as being lazy, unproductive and illiterate youths. As they continue to lash out at Buhari, telling him to blame himself and his government, the big question is, what will be their actions towards that statement?

The president was asked a question after a keynote speech at the Commonwealth Business Forum in Westminster, London on Wednesday, and he has this to say: “We have a very young population; our population is estimated conservatively to be 180 million. More than 60 percent of the population is below the age of 30. “A lot of them have not been to school and they are claiming that Nigeria has been an oil-producing country, therefore, they should sit and do nothing and get housing, healthcare, and education free.”

A proper scrutiny and perusing of Mr. President's speech further lend credence to the all-heard fact that the person presiding over the affairs of the Nigerian government is a foreigner from Sudan. No sane person from Nigeria would refer to her youths as "lazy" citizens especially when discussing out of the shores of the country. It is only a foreigner that can say that as an act of racism.

According to reliable foreign media outlets in London where the real president passed away in a London hospital, the president died on 23rd January 2017 and was buried in Saudi Arabia. Of course, there are no better ways for a foreigner to qualify youths whom he believes are psychologically lazy by not knowing that he is not their real president after many signs and facts are laid bound for the discerning minds.

On February 26, 2017, the Nation Newspaper confirmed that the real president of Nigeria was transfused with whole blood. This in nutshell indicates that the president is suffering from Anaemia. In the photos published,  his nail beds were pale which signifies one battling with clinical anaemia. Apart from this, the report that came from London stated that the president was intravenously fed meaning that he has Crohn's disease. In 2013, he had parts of his Colon removed after losing out in the presidential election contest with Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan. In 2016, Buhari was reported to be suffering from hemorrhoids and had his swollen veins near the human rectum removed. Above all, the president who is in his 70s was operated upon on a brain cancer. Putting all these into consideration, the psychologically lazy youths continued believing that their president is alive, hale and hearty.
It was a dream beyond the wildest imaginations of the impostor, Mr. Aminu Jubril to have been contracted to replace the dead Buhari. Jubril; a careless nobody from the streets of Khartoum in Sudan, given an offer such as no one would ever dream of which is to impersonate Buhari who has just departed. The deal was too sweet, the weight of influence and power almost dazed him. He was hired by the feudal lords of the desert(northern cabals) to pretend to be a person he never was and shall never be.

How would lazy Nigerian citizens believe that a foreigner should know that government should be blamed for the poor state of the schools, especially those in the rural areas. Most schools in the rural areas lack the basic amenities, they are in a deplorable state. Some school buildings have no roof, the children study under the heat of the sun, while some others has no seats. Students seat on anything they can lay their hands on in place of chairs and desks. The government has failed in living up to expectation in building schools and providing the basic needs in the educational sector. Meanwhile, the politicians and government officials’ children, go abroad for their studies to acquire good education because they know that good education is hardly obtainable in Nigeria.

In the health sector, there are staggering inadequacies. In Nigeria, people die of treatable illnesses due to lack of credible equipment.  In a country where the healthcare system is not equipped to deal with present and future challenges, high number of unavoidable deaths becomes the story of the day as it is with Nigeria. Instead, the kleptomaniac and bulletproof politicians who made this evil situation possible, go outside the country with their family members for medicals.

The Nigerian youths are to be blamed for giving their subjugators a red carpet treatment, for not condemning the evil and persecution against Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the leader of the Biafran people who courageously came out to challenge the status quo. The youths are lazy that is why they stand helpless watching as they are been impoverished without standing tall for their rights. A foreigner has just given out his findings in these few days he has spent in Nigeria. The solution to the hardship and inappropriateness in Nigeria lies in the hands of the youths. Until they stand up and question the ills and faulty foundational system and understand that people with different value systems cannot live together as one country, then they will stop been lazy citizens. But for now, they are still #LazyNigerianYouths.

U.S. releases damning human rights report on Nigeria under Buhari 10 days before talks with Trump




Published by The Biafra Times, April 23, 2018

By Simon Ateba

Washington D.C. - The United States government on Friday released a damning human rights report on Nigeria, saying grave violations continued to increase in 2017 while officials who perpetrated them were almost never prosecuted by the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Why it matters: President Buhari is scheduled to meet with President Donald Trump at the White House on April 30, and both men would likely discuss further U.S. military assistance to Nigeria against the backdrop of serious human rights violations by security forces who use the same weapons to kill civilians.

The U.S. annual report on global human rights violations, released in Washington D.C. on Friday afternoon, said the administration of President Buhari “took steps to investigate alleged abuses, but fewer steps to prosecute officials who committed violations, whether in the security forces or elsewhere in the government”.

“Impunity remained widespread at all levels of government. The government did not adequately investigate or prosecute most of the major outstanding allegations of human rights violations by the security forces or the majority of cases of police or military extortion or other abuse of power,” the report said.

You can read the executive summary of the report here. Human Rights Report on Nigeria Today News Africa

It said the most significant human rights issues included extrajudicial and arbitrary killings; disappearances and arbitrary detentions; torture, particularly in detention facilities, including sexual exploitation and abuse; use of children by some security elements, looting, and destruction of property.

There were also civilian detentions in military facilities, often based on flimsy evidence; denial of fair public trial; executive influence on the judiciary; infringement on citizens’ privacy rights; restrictions on freedoms of speech, press, assembly, and movement

This was in addition to official corruption; lack of accountability in cases involving violence against women and children, including female genital mutilation/cutting and sexual exploitation of children; trafficking in persons; early and forced marriages; criminalization of status and same-sex sexual conduct based on sexual orientation and gender identity; and forced and bonded labor.

The report recognized that Boko Haram terror group also committed a myriad of human rights violations, killing and torturing and imprisoning women and children and bombing entire villages.

“The groups conducted numerous attacks on government and civilian targets that resulted in thousands of deaths and injuries, widespread destruction, the internal displacement of approximately 1.8 million persons, and external displacement of an estimated 205,000 Nigerian refugees to neighboring countries, principally Cameroon, Chad, and Niger,” the report said.

Boko Haram’s numerous attacks often targeted civilians. The group, which recruited and forcefully conscripted child soldiers, carried out scores of suicide bombings–many by young women and girls forced into doing so–and other attacks on population centers in the Northeast and in Cameroon, Chad, and Niger.
“Abductions by Boko Haram continued. The group subjected many abducted women and girls to sexual and gender-based violence, including forced marriages and rape. The government investigated attacks by Boko Haram and ISIS-WA and took some steps to prosecute their members, although the majority of suspected insurgent group supporters were held in military custody without charge,

“In its response to Boko Haram and ISIS-WA attacks, and at times in response to crime and insecurity in general, security service personnel perpetrated extrajudicial killings and engaged in torture, sexual exploitation, and abuse, arbitrary detention, mistreatment of detainees, use of children by some security elements, looting, and destruction of property. The country also suffered from ethnic, regional, and religious violence,” the report added.

Biafra: Dialogue with IPOB, US Govt. tells Nigeria



•Stalls delivery of A-29 counter-insurgency aircraft till 2020

By Chikwas Onu Ikpe | Biafra Writers

April 23, 2018

In the build-up to President Muhammadu Buhari's anticipated visit to the White House on April 30, 2018, a Senior United States executive official has revealed, in anonymity, the preface of the proposed visit of the Nigerian president to the White House.

The US executive official emphatically stressed, among other issues, the agenda regarding the matter of contention between the Nigerian government and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

More so, he professed that the US government would galvanize credible diplomacy between the Federal government of Nigeria and the Indigenous People of Biafra. He also gave a nod to a dialogic approach as the only viable solution to the tactical situation confronting Nigeria.

In his words: “On IPOB, we see that there is an aggrieved population that would want to have its views heard and we will encourage that there should be dialogue.

“We always encourage dialogue as we did with NDA (Niger Delta Avengers), PANDEF. We didn’t tell the vice-president to visit the Niger Delta, but we were happy that he did it and it worked, we are not colonialists but facilitators.”

Recall that the US State Department had approved a sale of foreign military weaponries, worth $593 million, despite concerns from the Obama-led administration over the Nigerian government bombing civilians through that avenue.
Nevertheless, President Muhammadu Buhari lays claims to "foil" Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East of Nigeria, courtesy of the prospective ammunitions. The package includes Super A29 Tucano aircraft, spare parts, training, and facilities to support the deal.

Thereupon, the US official pointed out that upon receipt of payment by Nigeria, the aircraft are yet to be manufactured, adding that "they are being built in Florida and would take at least two years to manufacture.

"The planes have not been fully built, and we are looking at delivery at or about 2020 as you don’t just pick them up because they have to be manufactured according to specifications.”

They waved Biafra flags and exhibited placards with inscriptions such as: "Support Biafra Referendum," "A call for referendum is not a call for war," "Free all Biafra detainees," "Biafra Referendum is inevitable," Nigerian army, Produce Nnamdi Kanu, dead or alive," "#Brexit is not different from #Biafrexit," e.t.c

One of its members, in anonymity, charged the people of Biafra to remain resilient, and more than ever before dogged, even as the Biafra referendum is inching closer.

The Subjugated Ants And The Ferocious Elephants- An Untold Story Of The Fallen Empire



By Eluwa Chidiebere Chinazu | Biafra Writers

April 22, 2018

The "bulletproof" politicians whose properties and children are bulletproofed, and with additional retinues armed to the teeth to provide unprecedented security to them, are exerting their gigantic politically-derived prowess on the already disfranchised and beleaguered masses in Nigeria. When they sail briskly with their pricey bulletproof Hilux vans with blaring sirens, they lift and spray dust on the distressed, impoverished and suffering masses with their highly-coated tyres. The impoverished masses who moiled to fetch themselves with one or two frugal and inexpensive coat (Coat of many colors) are now being belittled and humiliated with impunity and no regard for their pitiable lives.

They discover themselves on cloud nine when they violate laws and unlawfully propel the masses into hardship just for their greedy interests in amassing wealth for themselves and their generations yet to be born. To them, they brag to be the elephants who own the land and view the poor masses who are toiling day and night, as ants. These elephantic politicians stay in a well-furnished cozy office, enjoying the pleasure and satisfaction of the world-class air conditioning machines on account of the poor masses' money.

The ants— the oppressed people in Nigeria, those who are subjugated, marginalised and whom the cold hands of the Nigerian government have snatched away their loved ones, their happiness and rendered them useless. These ants; the second class citizens and those perceived to be arrogantly regarded as the "born to rule" citizens by the elephantic politicians. These ants are littered everywhere among the three constituencies forcedly joined to form Nigeria. The name Nigeria as neologised by Flora Shaw, remains a common enemy to these ants, the oppressed people in Arewa, Oduduwa and in Biafra land.
These elephantic politicians have seen themselves as cats with nine lives. In Britain that inculcated in them the evils they orchestrate against the poor masses, they have built bulletproof houses and named it Abuja 1 and Abuja 2 just for their own safety. They, in a concealed place, assembled and crowned themselves overhead of the laws and rules governing the people in the country. They like ringing their names from the mountain tops just to freestyle, display and demonstrate their elephantic dominion over the ants in order to instill fear in them so that they may never rise up to question or challenge their wrongdoings. To these elephantic politicians, they are the superhumans while the ants are the nadirs.
The ants are shivering, they have gone undercover. Before, these ants do prostrate out to listen to the songs of the sirens and to take a glance at the soldiering vans of their elephantic political subjugators. But now, they have gone AWOL, hiding in their pitiful and wretched houses for safety as if that is a necessary security measure to take when dealing with the elephantic politicians. In their hearts are piled up with hatred for these elephantic politicians, in their eyes, l see unquenchable fire burning and ready to devour their subjugators before one can say, Jack Robinson.

But now is the genesis of the fall of these elephantic politicians because the ants have been pushed to the wall and further retreat is no longer obtainable. What is now left of the ants is to attack back with force against these elephantic politicians in Nigeria. They have come to the realisation of their common problem in life which is fear, that is holding them down for decades in defeating these elephantic politicians.

At last, there will be an influx of these ants from Arewa, Oduduwa, and Biafra to challenge these oppressors. By then, the holy voice and message of freedom must have touched every heart. Once again, these ants shall sing a new song to their Creator for giving them the moral to challenge their common enemy. Because when the ants unite, their power shall overshadow that of the elephants. They will thank their Gods for making them to understand that with them, these elephantic politicians are like empty drones that make the largest noise.

BRITISH AUTHORITIES SNEAKS NIGERIAN PRESIDENT OUT, AMIDST THE THRONG OF PEACEFUL BIAFRA PROTESTERS



Eluwa Chidiebere Chinazu | Reporting for Biafra Writers

April 22, 2018

United Kingdom - On Thursday and Friday, 19th and 20th of April 2018, the world most peaceful freedom fighting group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, as named by Amnesty International, came out en masse in the United Kingdom where the Nigerian president, Rtd. General Muhammadu Buhari came for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM 2018), to protest against the incessant massacre, butchery of their people and the raving marginalization meted on them as evidenced in the Amnesty International reports. The protesters also bespoke, clamoured and demanded from the Nigerian president, Muhammadu Buhari, the whereabouts of their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who has been missing since the Nigerian military invaded the Biafran leader's house on September 14, 2017 as ordered by Mr. President in a military operation code named, operation python dance. In the same vein, the people of Biafra never failed to demand for their referendum which its campaign is presently ongoing.



The protesters who protested at the Lancaster House in London and in front of the Commonwealth house in Westminster, London, were seen wielding placards which bore their agitation and banners bearing inscriptions of Biafra. The protesters, as usual, were chanting and singing while waiting for the president to come out of his hiding place.

"Heads of Government of Commonwealth countries, the Secretary General of Commonwealth, Ms. Patricia Scotland and the UK Prime Minister, Mrs. Theresa May, were all in attendance.

President Muhammadu Buhari, whose regime has been labelled incompetent and most corrupt ever by some world leaders and his fellow Nigerians, was perceived to be having a closed-door meeting with the Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth II and Theresa May, on how to keep milking the oil from Biafran land free of charge so that Britain will continue their one Nigeria policy and in return turning a blind eye to Nigeria's atrocities on Biafrans.



It should be on record that president Buhari's body language after seeing the protesters suggests he would have wanted them apprehended by the British Metropolitan Police. This has vindicated the Amnesty International reports on the evil and carnage modus operandi of the Nigerian military on the peaceful Biafran protesters being shot at, maimed and subjugated to inhuman treatment by the ordered of the president.



After the closed-door meeting with Queen Elizabeth and Theresa May, the British government sneaked the president out of the building instead of him coming out to address the people and answer the questions fielded to him by the protesters. Britain is a country known for been deceptive in nature. I mean, the state of Russia has also buttressed this fact recently by warning their media institutions and her government to stop peddling their inherent cheap lies against their government.

The world leaders should turn their watchful eyes on the perils of the Biafran people. Till date, no single person has been apprehended or keelhauled for the genocide committed on Biafran people between 1967 - 1970 which is second to the one committed on the Israelites (The Holocaust). President Buhari must answer to the International Criminal Court (ICC), for the atrocities committed on the Biafran people in this 21st century, under his regime. Biafrans has continued to push for a referendum to determine their fate. Referendum is the right of the people, give it to them in peace or they will take it by force.

Biafra: IPOB threatens mass action



• Kanu’s family expresses worry over his whereabouts

By Okey Sampson

April 21, 2018

Family of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has expressed anger and worry over the conflicting reports concerning his whereabouts. They again called on the military to tell them where their parents and son, Nnamdi are as they have not been able to see or communicate with them since the army invaded their home last year. As a result, IPOB has threatened to embark on a mass action to force the government to produce Kanu.

Recall that soldiers invaded the house of the Kanus late last year and since then; both the IPOB leader and his parents had not been seen or heard of, fuelling speculation that they may have been detained or killed by the military. The security agencies have however consistently denied the charge.

The call yesterday by the spokesman of the family, Prince Emma Kanu follows fresh rumours making the rounds that Nnamdi Kanu and his parents are neither dead nor in detention as they had been traced to Ghana and Umuahia respectively. The rumour was confirmed to Saturday Sun on Friday by a highly placed security source.

According to Emma, “If the military knows Nnamdi Kanu and my parents’ whereabouts, they better let us know and provide them without delay. If they know where they are, they should go and bring them, it’s as simple as that. How come my parents are with us in Umuahia and we cannot see or communicate with them? It’s impossible; they know what they are doing.

“Is it not the same military that denied the invasion of our house that came out now to say my parents are in Umuahia and Nnamdi in Ghana; they should go to Umuahia and bring them, let’s see or go to Ghana and bring Nnamdi Kanu let’s see.”

The family spokesman said the way their son’s whereabouts was being gossiped about has turned Nnamdi into a ghost. “The other time, some people said they saw Nnamdi Kanu going to London through Malaysia, others have said they saw him in Germany, Ghana and Cameroon. The military will soon come out to say they saw him in Kano. It’s like my brother has now become a ghost that he should be seen everywhere. If this is so, it goes to confirm our fears that the military who took him away when they raided our home last year had killed him and his ghost is now moving about in those places.”

He said “all these are tissues of lies being propped by the military with the intention of diverting attention from people asking them where my parents and brother are. All these are tissues of lies from the pit of hell being junked out by the military thinking that will stop the family, Biafrans and the international community from asking them where they kept Nnamdi and his parents because they (military) saw them last.

“All we are saying is that they should allow us see Nnamdi and our parents because we know they are with them; where they are dead, they should release their corpses to us for burial. I thank them so much for the information they are giving us, they should do us more favour by telling us exactly where they are so that we will go and meet them.

“The Nigerian army is known for telling lies, even when they invaded our house they lied they never did even when they were confronted with hard evidence they still lied about it. They are a set of people who lie so much and they will continue to lie.”

In the face of all these, Emma asked IPOB members not to mind the politics the military is playing with the whereabouts of their leader; asking that they should remain resolute because the actualisation of Biafra is not far.

Meanwhile, IPOB has threatened mass action over the fate of Kanu. According to its Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, “Nigerian government is beginning to discover that our leader is not an ordinary person that can be abducted without consequences. We are waiting to exhaust all peaceful options before we mount a concerted direct action to free our leader. The only thing that might lead to a violent disintegration of Nigeria is the fate of our leader.


“Our multiple demonstrations in Jerusalem and London calling on civilised nations of the world to prevail upon this Buhari led APC regime to release our leader is resonating within diplomatic circles. We have also formally notified the United Nations mission in Switzerland through the offices of our solicitors in London, that our leader is missing. At this point in time the United Nations is officially aware of the plight of our leader and they have promised to do something about it as a matter of urgency.

“We are leaving no stone unturned to ensure our leader is returned to us alive and well in the shortest possible time. Nigeria is playing with fire and it will consume it if care is not taken. IPOB is not like anything Africa has ever seen. We are unrelenting and indefatigable. At the end of this tortuous process the army will produce our leader and Biafra will be restored.
