June 30, 2017 – Okorocha Calls IPOB Leader Nnamdi Kanu An Attention Seeker As Ohaneze Ndigbo Berates Him Over Plan To Boycott Anambra Election

Biafra: Okorocha Calls Kanu An Attention Seeker As Ohaneze Ndigbo Disowns Kanu & IPOB

For threatening to boycott Anambra election, IPOB leader, Kanu came under heavy fire from Igbo leaders yesterday.

Kanu who has been threatening that unless a referendum is organised to enable the Igbos determine whether they should have Biafra was called a separatist advocate by Igbos elders yesterday.

Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha, Ohanaeze Ndigbo and politicians chided the Biafran activist.

The Ijaw Youth Council also threatened action should Kanu disparage former President Goodluck Jonathan again.

Okorocha who spoke at the State House in Abuja said Kanu does not represent or speak for the Igbo, describing him as a young man seeking relevance.

“Kanu, a young man seeking relevance, agitating for whatever he believes in, what he stands for must be treated separately from the entire Igbo nation.

“He should be treated as a young man agitating and seeking for relevance, these are two different issues. And he can ride on the back of supposed Igbo marginalization which has been said is not right, and ride on that sentiments and push his agenda but that does not mean that the entire Igbos are speaking with him.

“The question is does Nnamdi Kanu have the capacity to lead Igbo to war? Or lead me and the governors to war? So I will stand now and Nnamdi Kanu will tell me stand up let’s go to war? So, sometimes we over dramatised the issue just to make a big deal out of it and that has been the big challenge.

“Like the gentleman that spoke for the Arewa youths, and these are not more than 17 young men speaking for millions of Arewa youths and it doesn’t make sense because if you ask any Arewa youth now if he is part of this he will tell you no.

“I was in Chatham House and I remember how I was attacked by the IPOB boys when I was delivering my lecture. They walked up to me and they were shouting and I said calm down and the young man has never visited Nigeria. So it is our duty to call our younger ones to order but I want to assure Nigerians that they should not see that as a break but agitation given what they perceived that the South East has been neglected overtime politically, economically, socially and all that.

“Their roads are impassable, you cannot pass Port Harcourt road, Enugu road, Aba Road, Bayelsa road and all the roads. You can hardly see federal government presence in the South East, all the things you see are self-made things. Even the Onitshe bridge has been a theoretical talk, fabrications which does not represent reality. “So, he speaks his own and joins it to our issues and it now looks like a nationwide thing. That is not the issue.

“We have called for unity and have agreed that we will remain united. Very soon, some of us have taken it upon ourselves to reach out to this young men talk to them. We must understand that our young men are frustrated, if they are as comfortable as we are, they will not be able to say those.

Ohaneze Ndigbo said Kanu has no right to stop the Anambra governorship election.

Its president, Dr John Nwodo, described the IPOB leader’s statement as provocative, misleading and unproductive.

He said Kanu’s statement was against the agreement he reached with Ohaneze Ndigbo when he visited him, adding that the IPOB leader had breached the agreement with Ohaneze without consultation.

Nwodo and his executive council members spoke during a visit to the Anambra State House of Assembly yesterday as part of its sensitisation in the South East. Speaker Rita Maduagwu, lawmakers and former National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Victor Umeh, attended.

Nwodo said: “News that reached us in the past few days that Nnamdi Kami, had declared that there will be no election in Anambra in November is shocking and disturbing. I hereby countermand that declaration as President General of Ohaneze

“Whereas Ohaneze understands the marginalisation and unfair treatment of Igbos which have given rise to self-determination movements in Igboland, leaders of these movements must not arrogate to themselves the supreme leadership of Igboland. Statements of the kind credited to Nnamdi Kanu are provocative, misleading and unproductive”

“Why should Anambra people be denied the opportunity to choose their own leader? Why should any of us not from Anambra, no matter how highly placed, descend to the arena and dictate for Anambra people when to vote, whether to vote or who to vote for?

“Anambra, nay Igbos, are still part and parcel of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Yes, we are not happy with our treatment in Nigeria”

“Yes, some of us want Biafra. Yes, some of us prefer a restructured Federal Republic of Nigeria. But the fact remains that we are still part and parcel of the present Federal Republic of Nigeria, bound by its laws, no matter how repressive or unjust”

Umeh said it was only the people who do not have Igbo blood in them that would allow anybody to tell them what goes on in the society today, adding that the current Ohaneze was making Ndigbo proud.

Special Adviser to Governor Willie Obiano on legislative matters, Chief Chidozie Ezeugwa, condemned Kanu’s statement saying the government of Anambra state under Obiano was committed to the Igbo cause and would continue to do everything to support Ohaneze’s interest in anything in protecting Ndigbo in the country.

Some politicians have also condemned Kanu’s call for a boycott of the Anambrapoll.

They said the call was capable of derailing democracy in the state and expose the people to anarchy.

Chief Sam Oraegbunam, Chairman of Hope Democratic Party (HDP), Anambra chapter, said although Kanu’s call for repositioning of Nigeria was popular, he must not use it to cause confusion in Anambra.

The Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) Worldwide has declared that further attack on former President Jonathan by Kanu, would be met with appropriate sanctions from Ijaw youths.

IYCthrough its Spokesman Daniel Dasimaka, described as uncharitable and disrespectful, Kanu’s comments on ex-President Jonathan.

The umbrella organisation of Ijaw youths said: “It is quite ironic and appalling that anyone will say ex-President Jonathan did nothing for the Southeast, when it is common knowledge in both informed and not-so-informed circles in Nigeria that the Southeast benefited even more than the Southsouth under Dr. Jonathan. It is on record that under the then President Jonathan, rehabilitation and expansion works were done on the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport (SMICA), Owerri, Imo State, which he granted an international airport status.

“In terms of appointment, Dr. Jonathan appointed the first female Comptroller-General of Immigration, Mrs. Rose Chinyere Uzoma (an Igbo). He also appointed the first Southeast Chief of Army Staff, Maj.-Gen. Azubuike Ihejirika and first Southeast Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ogbonnaya Onovo, among others.

“We are calling on the true Igbo leaders to caution Nnamdi Kanu and to bridle his tongue, lest his unguarded rhetoric may strain the good relationship the Igbo and the Ijaw nation, and by extrapolation the Southsouth and Southeast geopolitical zones, have enjoyed over the years.” [Credit]

  1. okoroawusa..u ran to abuja to warn kanu and flew to london chatham house for a speech and got booed.the guy is gving u sleepless nights.wake and smell the coffee.

    • THANK GOD YOU SAID IGBOS, NOT YORUBAS.
      LOOK AT WHO IS TALKING?
      YORUBAS ARE SLAVES TO TINUBU, HE OWE HALF OF LAGOS, AND ARE STILL RECEIVING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS AS MONTHLY SALARY IN LAGOS.
      PLS LET KALU BE……..

  2. HE CAN CALL HIM WHATEVER HE LIKES BUT TIME SHALL TELL.
    WE HAVE MADE THAT MISTAKE BY VOTING HAUSA MAN TO BE GOVERNOR OF IMO STATE, IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN.
    OKOROHAUSA WILL NOT WIN ANY ELECTION IN IGBOLAND AGAIN.

  3. There is the possibility that Brief cases have exchanged hands and these shameless people calling themselves leaders,who are only representing themselves are here to condemn the fact and reality.

    Kanu was and is not calling for war,but you people are, no matter how you people chose to twist this movement,those of you who sold and keep on reaping what belongs to many, you allowed yourselves be used in denying the entire Eastern their right. Just like your counterparts are denying different ethnics theirs.
    All of you are representing as Cabals of the EAST…your days are numbered.

  4. MY QUESTION IS, which war is Nnamdi Kanu calling for? All I see here is a freedom fighter who‘s taking the struggle for his dream to a higher ground but in a peaceful way.

    All those pot belly two-mouthed betrayers who called themselve leaders of Igbos seem not to have gotten the clear message that all these hausa muslims are trying to pass across.

    Okoro-muslim knew too well that the hausas are using him as a brigde to get through to the Igbos but he chose to look the other way bcos of the “Money In The Bank“ that he is getting for his betrayal services.

    Okorocha, and the rest of the so called leaders of Igbos who thinks that this struggle will never succeed are less than an AMOEBA.
    They will live to see it happen but will never enjoy it. Cowards!

    I take a stroll…

  5. shame to those Judas selling there brother in the hand of Aboki,I remember ROCHASE FOUNDATION in Abuja,if any Igbo lady goes there to see Rochase he will direct them to his driver or secretary but if Hausa lady goes to see him,Rochase will welcome her and have a chat with her and also help her.Rochase you are nobody than a slave to Northerns

  6. Senseless ppl, where is kanu wife and children? London Abi,those rich Igbo ppl supporting ,ask where their family are? They all have private jets, or visas to other countries, you senseless blind fools shouting and drumming for war, when it happens, you u all regret inside ur graves,and no remedy again,no on earth u ppl will overpower Nigeria army, ask you fathers that witnessed d civil war.

  7. **********
    D only language that people in the zoo talks is war war war…..

    am sorry we are not talking war, we are talking referendum..
    but if u love war so much…use ur calculator phone and subtract 2017 from 1966.

    it will b given to you in full dose and u will b the first to go over d other side

  8. Honestly speaking, hater of fellow human beings like Kanu Nnamdi should never represents decent people any where in the world in the 21st century. The quicker those recognized Igbo leaders, Igbo religion leaders, and politicians come out to denounce this animal in human body, the better for Igbo people and Nigeria as a whole. I have never heard or seen any Nigerian from any of our major tribes redicules other tribe or people who doesn’t speak his or her language like that criminal called Nnamdi Kanu. The Igbo youths are angry and agitating just like other youths from the other five regions because of corruption and looting of over 40 years by vagabonds in power. Instead of him to demand for transparency and accountability from their governors, Kanu is preaching hatred, revenge, violence, and tribalism. He is telling those angry Igbo youths that Yorubas, Hausa, Fulani, Ijaws, and other Non-Igbo speaking Nigerians are their enemies and problems. That is nothing but a demonic simmons or message from the pity of hell and from a hateful mind. He preaches hatred instead of love, he preaches division INSTEAD of unity, he preaches civil disobedience instead of orderliness, he preaches war instead of peace, and he preaches economy ruin instead of prosperity. I thank God for strong leader like gov. Okorocha and other Igbos online and offline for their boldness to denounce evil preacher and his demonic teachings of violence and war for the peace of all Nigerian citizens. Whenever you begin to see ordinary Yoruba, Hausa, Fulani, Igbo, Irobo, and other human being as your enemies, sometimes is seriously wrong with you because demon of hatred and violence have tske over your souls. Look my fellow Nigerians, we have all been rubbed by our wicked politicians and vagabonds in power for too long a time, let all of us regardless of your tribe, culture and language unite to ask for good governance, accountability, corruption free, and transparency from our various politicians. No matter what stupid Nnamdi have called Yorubas, I will continue to love, work with, and be a good brother to my Igbo, Yoruba, Hausa, and Fulani brothers and sisters. We must do everything to perverse our nation, this is the only place we can boldy call home. May God open the eyes of understanding of all Nigerians to see that our God is love and truth, and give us the will to love ourselves regardless of tribe and religious. We all have a short time here, heaven is final home. Love conquer all.
