At around 12.30pm I was on my way for an important appointment to somewhere in Maitama Abuja and I got a phone call.

Me: Hello

BBC Anchor man: Hello Rev Peace this the BBC Igbo service and we are calling you from our studios in Lagos and we want to know your reaction as one of the media representatives of Ipob on what Governor Rochas Okorocha said about Biafra when we interviewed him lately

Me: Please can you call me back in about 10-15 minutes because right now I’m on transit and I can’t really be in the best of position to grant you an interview.

BBC Igbo service anchor man: OK sir will call you back in 15 minutes time.
At about1.pm now sitting comfortably on a sofa in reception area of the office I visited and my phone rang again…

Me: Hello

BBC Igbo service anchor man: Yes Rev Peace can we now go ahead with the interview?

Me: Yes we can
BBC Igbo service anchor man: OK as I asked before we need your reaction on what Governor Okorocha said about Biafra when we interviewed him recently

Me: And what is his position on that?

BBC Igbo service anchor man: He said that your group IPOB’s position is quite different from the generality of the Igbo nation’s position.

Me: And what did he say is our position and that of Igbo nation’s position?

BBC Igbo service anchor man: He said that IPOB want to cause war in the country with their activities and that the last thing the Igbo nation want now is war

Me: But from your own perspective as an educated young man working in BBC do u really think that IPOB is calling for war?

BBC Igbo service anchor man: Yes because seeing some of the IPOB members protesting with sticks and machetes I think that might actually snowball into a war or something like that

Me: Cutting in listen my friend I think I am beginning to see why some of our members have been accusing you people at the BBC Igbo service as coming at this point in time to fight IPOB and the restoration of Biafra because for you to say that you have seen IPOB members protesting with sticks and machetes shows that you guys are actually guilty of the accusations if not how can you say that about an organization that have been recently recognized by a reputable and one of the most trusted world body like amnesty international, other world bodies and leaders as the most peaceful freedom fighting group in the world, a group that have organized countless mega rallies around Biafra land attended by millions without recording even one incidence of injury or lawlessness and moreover where and when have you seen IPOB members protesting with sticks and machetes??

BBC Igbo service anchor man: Well let’s go back and talk about your position on what Rochas Okorocha said about your group.

Me: Well what I have to say about that is that Rochas Okorocha is only protecting the monthly Abuja allocation which he is looting and using to buy up houses everywhere and stashing away in foreign banks then making sure he is positioning his in-law to succeed him as the next governor of IMO state and virtually running IMO state as a family business and in the light of all these the political crook knew quite alright that with the coming of Biafra he is going to lose all that he has been enjoying so he is ready to do anything to maintain the status quo including scaring Ndigbo with the threat of war but I and you know that calling for referendum is not a call for war because Britain the owners of the BBC where you are now calling from recently had a referendum to exit the EU the Scots also had theirs in the same Britain and nobody talked about war and as you must have known south Sudan, Eritrea, Catalans and Kurds all had their referendums without wars so how can any right thinking person call a call for referendum a call for war??

Moreover we are all here in this country when Goodluck Jonathan gave up the presidency just because he wanted to avoid bloodshed but between I and you we know how much blood has been shed in this country since he relinquished the presidency that someone opined that human blood is now cheaper than fuel in this country and as I’m talking to you now Fulani herdsmen has surrounded the whole of Biafra land in bushes, forests and farmlands and the IG of police has announced the withdrawal of firearm licences and ordered everyone with firearms including local vigilante groups to surrender them within 21days and that should make any sensible person to be concerned knowing fully well what the herdsmen has been doing killing, raping and taking over lands in a bid to subjugate and finally islamise this country with the tactic support of Buhari at the presidency so even if there’s going to be war because of our call for referendum that would not make us to stop because even if you don’t call for referendum as it stands now we are already at war and as our people always says you don’t run away from war because someone may die…

BBC Igbo service anchor man: Thank you Rev Peace for your time.

Me: You are welcome.
And immediately the secretary came to call me that it is time to meet her MD for my appointment.

As things stands now, information reaching our desk have it that United Nation are set to release Biafra code which definitely assured that we are getting closer to our freedom more than before because for every nation to stand, there must be a code representing the country and Biafra code is currently under process according to our source.

Igbo presidency is not in Nigeria agenda don’t be deceive Tanko Yakasai revealed

Daily Gist

Published

The assertion of Igbo man been the President of Nigeria is night dream that might occurs probably but it will take years before actualize, the second Republic politician alhaji Tanko Yakasai raised alarm.

He stated this while addressing news media and expressed serious fear on what might be the fate of south east if eventually they are shut out of the Presidency for next 28 years should President Mohammadu Buhari wins his re-election scheduled to take place next month.

He further revealed that this year election will not be an easy type as many Nigerians might think because we have 2 major party just like it was in the 1964 contesting for Presidential election which will definitely trigger war if mismanaged and also warned that a divide of the incoming general election will stir another war in Nigeria sighting how the previous war Nigeria experienced started.

APC and PDP are the two major force in the incoming election, APC have there allies in the South West in support of president Mohammadu Buhari and the other block is the PDP led by Atiku abubarkar and Peter Obi, I see this as something serious that will bring divide with far reaching implications.

If President Buhari succeed in winning his re election, he will rule additional four years and after Buhari, leadership will definitely go back to west which will amount to 8 years added to 4 years under Buhari leadership, it would amount to 12 years.

After the man from south west, there are zero tendency that somebody under APC will be nominated to contest election from the entire South, therefore the candidate will now come from the north after south west leadership.

The idea is that once APC candidate from the north has completed his two terms, presidency will go automatically to the south east or Igbos and south west Yorubas (merged contest) and in that scenario, southeast are not making it to even second on result because it’s a planned deal.

But if PDP with Atiku Abubarkar as presidential candidate wins with his running mate from south east in the person of Peter Obi, they will run the government for maximum 8 years(that is two successful terms) in office. After that, shift automatically go to south east and the possibility is that his running mate Obi who is from south east would become the candidate for the position.
