Buhari’s visit to southeast region and the self aclaimed igbo leaders!
Buhari bestowed with a chieftaincy title in Igbo land by some bunch of Igbo traditional “misleading rulers”!
President Buhari conferred with the title of Ochioha NdiIgbo 1 by South East traditional council of rulers led by Eze Eberechi Dick during his visit to Ebonyi state; This is an insult to Ndi Igbo and the lives that were lost during the just concluded operation python dance in which buhari ordered his soldiers to kill young Igbo men and women in their numbers. while spearing AREWA youths and the Fulani herdsmen terrorist group!
The current visit of president Buhari to the south-east region has been dubbed to be political and rightly so. President Buhari since being elected into office in 2015 have not visited the region in person but have in various occasions sent his soldiers to kill citizens of that region for diverse reasons. It is alleged that visit is in preperation for his re-election in 2019 and the up coming Anambra election. Some sources have it that a few PDP governors in the south east will defect to APC including the Ebonyi state governor.
Also, in the early days of his election as president he made it obvious that he was never going to treat the south-east region the same as the other regions that gave him more vote with the much talked about “95% and 5%”. Unfortunately for Ndi Igbo, the politicians they have elected into offices have betrayed them and careless about the collective interests of ndi Igbo.
These set of Igbo politicians that have given themselves the Igbo leadership titles are a complete disgrace to the Igbo race. The Igbo’s of old would not welcome Buhari to Igbo land considering his alleged hatred for Ndi Igbo which have been demonstrated in his actions. How could these people welcome a president that sent soldiers to massacre young men and women in cold blood in Igbo land? How could Buhari of all people be given the title of “Ochioha ndi Igbo 1″during the heightened displeasure by most Igbos towards the killings of unarmed IPOB members all over the region and the disappearance of Nnamdi kanu after his home was illegally invaded by the army which off course is dominated by Hausas.
Onye aghana nwanneya is a saying in Igbo land which means never leave your brothers or sisters for that matter,even in difficult situations, it is a way of asking Igbos to put their collective interests before self-gain. But the igbo politicians of today, due to selfish gains have violated every rule in the Igbo culture just to fatten their bank accounts at the expense of the collective interests of ndi Igbo. This is not just applicable to the politicians alone, it is the same outside of politics, people whose businesses may be affected in the process of fighting for the collective interest of Ndi Igbo in Nigeria will also betray ndi igbo due to their personal and selfish interests.
“Buhari is now the God of Ebonyi state”, Ebonyi governor.
Ebonyi state governor said in his address that the visit of president Buhari to his state is an unmerited favour of God. According to him, the president’s visit to his state is simply a miracle.
How best to describe what is going on in Igbo land now, but to lament that it is disgraceful to say the least. It is hard to think of any other ethnic group that would be treated the same way that Buhari have treated Igbo people since his assumption of office in 2015 that will be stupid enough not to first demand that he first show remorse to their people before inviting him to bestow chieftaincy titles on him as if nothing had happened or that all is well in Nigeria with Ndi Igbo.
Ndi igbo need to re-think, to be able to fight for the collective interests of Igbo’s in Nigeria,the igbos need selfless politicians to stand for them,which unfortunatley they do not have among the existing bunch. The current trend is simply a case of those in politics to get money from the northern politicians and abandon the collective interests of his people and switch party membership based on monitory factor on offer.
it is very sad to accept this unfortunate reality but if this trend continues then igbos will be doomed.
