Political exclusion of southeast is affirming the propaganda of Biafra extremists – Fredrick Nwabufo

Onye Nigeria, I told you one day, there will be job adverts for positions in the federal civil service, and there will be a clause: ‘No candidate from the southeast allowed’; the exclusion of Ndi Igbo from the leadership of the three arms of government is just the beginning.” That was the message of an Igbo nationalist to me. Nnamdi is a “sparring mate”, who scavenges for daily upsets and annoyances about Nigeria. He has been dutiful in this enterprise. We spend some time arguing the place of the Igbo in Nigeria and related subjects. He believes the Igbo cannot reach the acme of their potential with the current structure of the country.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has reacted to the video of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu frolicking with a woman. The Deputy Leader of the group, Uche Mefor, said that the woman in the video was Kanu’s wife. He wondered if it was a crime for a woman to have fun with his wife, accusing the presidency of circulating the old video. Mefor said, “The video making rounds about the leader of IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not new, it has been in circulation since 2013/2014 and as such nothing to be surprised about. Be advised accordingly, though, that this is a video of husband and wife (Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and our own Mrs Uchechi Okwu-Kanu). “We note that employing of this cowardly conduct remains in the circumstances the only response-and-panic-control strategy from the already d
