Governor Fashola Deported Destitutes From All Over Nigeria; Igbos, Develop Ur Land & Be Ur Brother’s Keepers

August 10, 2013 – Governor Fashola Deported Destitutes From All Over Nigeria; Igbos, Develop Ur Land & Be Ur Brother’s Keepers

Dear All

Your analysis of Femi Fani-Kayode write up seem not to address what this revered Nigerian has set out in his mail. What Mr. Fani-kayode simple did was to take the Igbo’s back to time in memory to amongst other things educate you about what has transpired in the past, especially leading to Igbo needless secession, the loss and death of several millions of Igbo, the Igbo defeat and surrender and finally the magnanimous re-integration of Igbo into Nigeria. He wrote a very clear chronological order of events for the Igbo young minds to learn history and for the adults to rethink in their behaviors.

Infact, Mr. Fanimokun gaves examples of Lt. Adekunle Fajuyi putting his life first before Agunyi Ironsi, he talked about accommodating the Igbos back to life in the South West and since then, no single time did the Yoruba sent the Igbo packing or kill them or maim them, rather they allowed them to flourish side by side with the rest of the Yoruba people. Infact, 80% of Igbo people became who they are today from the Yoruba Land, which the Yoruba are proud of.

In my view, what has been the hallmark of the Igbo tribe is its unguarded emotional outburst into issues rather than a clinical and methodological approach to situations. Your email below is very laughable, especially as you now say Ondo, Itsekiri, Igala, Nupe are all owners of Lagos…you were right about all those minorities ethnic group you mentioned except the Igbo. Simple reason is that the Old Oyo Empire, ruled over all the ethnicities apart from Igbo, thence, Awori’s, Nupe, Igala, Itsekiri etc. even have ancestral tie to Yoruba’s. You probably did not know that Afonja ruled Ilorin which was under the Alaafin Aole of Oyo empire for several millenia, ending during the wars in 1870.

Now coming to the issue of owning a property in a state that is not your native state and thereby laying claim to the city is mere wishful thinking and very laughable, infact let me tell you a little secret, Yoruba’s are laughing heavily at you people and waiting for you to make the same suicidal decisions you made in 1967. The Igbo’s are always carried away by little success to the extent that forget that no amount of wealth that any Igbo man or all Igbos put to together can acquire, the yoruba’s have acquired multiples of it several generations back.

There is always a big deal for an Igbo man and he brags immediately about his little success rather than consolidate. LASG attention has been drawn to your claims and we shall see who has right to grant Title or revoke Title to those properties you claim to own. If your claim is true, you need not approach the state for your title, you should equally be claiming Ancestral Ownership under the Yoruba Native Law and Customs as if your fore fathers farmed or fished on certain parts of land in Yoruba Land, infact you can even litigate on your ancestral lands in Yoruba Land.

The Questions this brings to fore is, what happens to your Villages in Anambra, Onitsha, Owerri, Imo, Enugu, Ebonyi etc. ? ? ? Will your fore fathers ever forgive you for neglecting them and their graves to claim Ancestral Heir to another man’s land ? Why can’t the Igbo with its resourcefulness turn an Igbo City into the Port Harcourt of South South, or an Abuja/Kano of Northern Nigeria. Why are Igbo people scattered all over the nation like people with no root. If I where an Igbo, these are questions I would ask my fellow countrymen.

The truth is, should there be a Crisis again, lets face the fact and not brag, Igbo will lose out again, even bigger than the 60′s. Even though there might be casualities from both sides, both Igbo will loose more, because there is nothing to fall back at home.

Governor Fashola deported and removed destitutes who are native from all parts of Nigeria, LASG will do it again and again, there is nothing Igbo can do about it, so also Governors and people from other regions too. On a finally note, Yoruba Land SouthWest do not need the Minorities, Minorities need South West/Yoruba land. If these minorities can no adapt and be ready to live within the dictates of the SouthWest, they are free to return to their native land, where they are also free to do whatever they like.

I believe the Igbo should be wiser by now, no matter how long you live in another man’s land you will always be a stranger. The Jews own American Finance, they dare not claim New York from Native Americans, the Scottish dare not claim London from English People, so also English Can not lay claim to Edinburg.

Igbo make una use una brain…develop your land as a fall back.

    Whoever the originator of this article is, I’d like to remind you that someday, everybody will die leaving behind whatever we have acquired or duped and in which ever means or process used in acquiring those! Furthermore, whether you have acquired a property or the like by forcing people to their home states, or by murmuring war, or by inciting false believes in the most uncivilized manner because you think a place is your ancestral belonging, note that the claims you lay of a place in existence has been there ever before you were born and the so claimed ancestry did no harm to foreigners on their lands.

    If you are sincere to yourself as you semed to agitate and applaud, what stoped you since you came into office from initiating a policy prohibiting people from possesing properties or further development in the same state??? ohh you have been waiting for more rapid and individualistic efforts in lagos state before you sudenly came up with a crooked and evil agenda to add to your proposed mega city? I am happy you made mention of other developed nations like America, the united kingdom etc, it will also interest you to know that despite the presence of a foreigner in a place, everybody learnt to live in peace and harmony. Convince me that as a governor of a state, you do not have just one investment in a foreign land? or have anybody threaten or made any claims on your investments elsewhere that you are apparently doing with a whole energy and will? IF ONLY MEN WERE GOD.

    I know your father is a gentle man and probably a true Muslim, how much money worth of property or investment did you plant with him in a small area of grave dug as he was buried few days ago?

    People should grow the way they think. Your career in business or politics is your utmost priority and that which should grow in all measures whether you are active in the said business or politics! People should also cultivate a habit which would enable them to improve on the performances of their predecessors during the days of their reign. IF ONLY YOU CAN IMAGINE THE INJURY AND PAINS YOU HAVE INFLICTED IN THE MINDS THE IBO MEN WHO SUPPORTED AND VOTED IN OFFICE, I’m sure a human mind (if you have one) would withdraw this statement while seeking for apology. At the same time, I pray that these people would find a place in their heart and forgive you in all anomaly.

    To be honest I welcome these lyrics from this yuruba man. And I think its time to gradually relocate to our own soil with all we have gotten here and leave them with their poverty and their owanbe.

    Lets forget the yoruba ethnic group. You that is talking about lagos, which part of lagos did u come from. Can u trace ur ancenstral home in lagos. Who are ur fathers, where do they come from. How many properties do u have in lagos. Let me assure u this, in the next ten yrs igbo pple will take over this state. We have the financial muscle to buy lagos over and we are going to do it. If u try anything funny we will push all of u inside the ocean. Be warned.

    I read through the comments made by people of south eastern extraction , to my greatest disbelief , I am forced to reckon with a fact that Nigeria is not a united country . Igbos need to be objective in addressing the issue of repatriation of these destitute , where were these so called industrious sons and daughters of igbos when these destitute littered cities of lagos ? . Don’t fool yourselves about ownership of landed properties . You people should be grateful to yorubas for being magnanimous .


    August 11, 2013 at 12:59 AM

    This write-up and Fani Kayode’s doesn’t add up.
    Deportation under any guise is wicked, unconstitutional, and an afront on our collective inteligent.
    For Fasola to alleged he deported indigenes from Osun is an afterthought. He is simply doing that for face saving.
    Even in the streets of New York, there are destitutes.
    Go to Saudi, Israel, UK, and all other developed countries they have destitutes.
    Which history are they talking about? You people should go back to the books and discovered who the early settlers are. Oba Oyekan is not from the yoruba land, even his fathers were sent to Lagos [Eko] to build the city and govern it.

      Usman ,in as much you have the right to expression ,try to be factual .The late oba of Lagos was a yoruba man ,igbos are arrogant and ungrateful people.That is why they have problems even in Niger -Delta .

    what a foolish, comments this destitute deportation is causin now i hope fashola and the so called stupid and senseless mr fanni kayode is happy now, one problem the yorubas can never runaway or be cured is LAZYNESS, and another thing they will not stopped doing to igbos is ENVYNESS. We dey laugh. we make you yorubas what you are today, you ungratefull things, dont try to bit the fingers that fed you but if you think you can, only the igbos in lagos state will swallow the entire yoruba regions in Nigeria.

I heard someone talking about Ojuku,that is why an igbo man can never ever and ever become a president in Nigeria again becos of their greed and money monger lifestyle, an igbo man can go any lentgh bcos of money and their women have even learn the same attitude.SHAME!

    Why are you all angry with the word he said after all there is Igbo man in his cabinet and he cannot decide unless they agree in the cabinet. So please I beg you in the name of Jesus forgive and forget maybe he said it to motivate you all to go and develop your town that is deserted. Don’t be like samballat and Tobiah that were against Nehemiah when trying to build the gate of Israel .

    August 11, 2013 at 6:14 PM

    Igbo people you are angry because Truth is Bitter, abo oro la nso fun omoluabi ti o ba de inu re a di odiidi .which means the little you heard is enough for you, a word is enough for a wise that is if the wise will make use of it. Go Home Igbo people

    You all are fighting for lands you did not create. Ah! Human beings! Sometimes I try to imagine how God looks at us from His Throne. Anyways.. Everyone should prepare whether you are a governor, president or citizen for the owner of this World is coming soon. Repent so you can make heaven and forget about others who are fighting for what has been since the Earth was void.
