Friday 4 March 2016


In December 2015 during his first funny presidential media chat, Muhammadu Buhari reacting to the protest by Biafrans for the independent state of Biafra said this; “The Igbo should explain what they mean by marginalization. Who is marginalizing them? I contested and won my election and I appointed the right people into my government...." This is another way of saying I owe Igbos nothing. Also, on the 21st of November 2015, about a month before his media chat, Buhari who was represented by the Minister of State for Education, Prof Anthony Onwuka, during  the investiture of the Obi of Onitsha, Nnaemeka Alfred Ugochukwu Achebe, as the 7th Chancellor of the Ahmadu Bello University, ABU, Zaria, said the actions of some people agitating for dismemberment of the country would be surmounted. His words: “I therefore sound a note of serious warning that the corporate existence of Nigeria as a single entity is not a subject of debate and will not be compromised..."

Little did we know he planned to surmount the Biafran agitation by  pumping out huge sums of money to any person or group that is talking about Biafra. Pumping out huge sums to shut up Biafran agitation I believe is a lesson he took from one of his successors who also happened to be a former military head of state like himself.
Well, perhaps he should be informed that such techniques won't work this time except with Ohaneze Ndigbo. However, for those who would like to earn some extra money, this stands to be an avenue to enrich oneself, talk about Biafra and get paid off; courtesy a President with no economic knowledge and investment policy. What else could he think to do with tax payers money?

Nevertheless, my commendation goes to the yahoo news, newsweek and bloomberg for their efforts in reporting Biafra and refusal to be shut up by the dollar bill circulating round from Buhari's coffers in the face of naira fall and economic breakdown. Perhaps my dollar bill will soon reach me. Speak about Biafra and get paid to shut up, what business could pay more? This is one of the reasons the naira keeps falling, when your dumb president spends millions of dollars in his unnecessary world tour and bribing of journalists and media organizations.

He claims he owes the Igbos nothing even when it's obvious his government of deceit have abandoned the region owing to political vandetta as he clearly stated during the NDI interview in Washington D.C, in his words; "It will be unfair to treat the constituencies that gave me 5% votes same way I would treat the constituencies that gave me 97% votes". The resources and tax revenues meant to be used in developing the zoo nation, is rather being used for unfruitful world tour and bribing of journalists while sachet water sells at 180naira, with people queueing in gas stations for the fuel that has become as scarce as diamond even in the era of the highest fall in global fuel price known to man. What a pity?
