Igbos Are Not The Problem Of Nigeria!
(Igbos don't commit atrocities, or kill people)
It is not the Igbo that has massacred our people, raped our women and burnt our homes and farms.
It is not the Igbo that has subjected us to genocide, ethnic cleansing and mass murder. It is not the Igbo that seeks to wipe out our Christian faith.
It is not the Igbo that seeks to islamise our nation and enslave our people. It is not the Igbo that has held us back in terms of development and stunted our growth.
It is not the Igbo that has enslaved, colonised and butchered millions of the people of the Middle Belt over the last 200 years.
It is not the Igbo that conquered and enslaved the Hausa people and stripped them of their history, identity, cultural heritage and dignity.
I totally and completely reject the notion that the Igbo are the problem of Nigeria. I also reject the nebulous suggestion that they must leave Yorubaland and instead I call for southern and Middle Belt unity and solidarity.
That is the only way that we can free ourselves from the shackles of our collective oppressors. That is the only way to put Buhari and those that share his morbid and hegemonist world-view to shame. - Fani kayode
