It is Igbo Presidency in 2019 or Biafra 2020 – Ohaneze Youth



It is Igbo Presidency in 2019 or Biafra 2020 - Ohaneze YouthAfter a meeting on Tuesday in Enugu the Ohaneze Ndigbo Youth Wing has released a statement saying that the next president of Nigeria must be Igbo.

The group has said that the Igbos cannot continue to play “second fiddle” in Nigerian politics, Punch reports.

They said that this decision is predicated upon the North’s opposition to the calls for restructuring, and the ordering of the Igbos out of the region by a coalition of Northern youth groups.

“More annoying is the fact that the North, a major beneficiary in this direction, has bluntly refused to heed the call for restructuring, which has been identified as the panacea for the many socio-political problems plaguing the nation. Besides, they (North) have also not only continued to express disdain over the demand for Biafra by IPOB and MASSOB, but have also ordered the Ndigbo out of the North based on these agitations,” the group said.

The group has said that this is the only way the agitators for a sovereign state of Biafra can be appeased.

“Remember that former President Olusegun Obasanjo has urged Nigerians to beg Biafra agitators; only a Nigerian President of Igbo extraction will appease the Igbo. Otherwise, Biafran agitation will be inevitable,” the group said.

    Ahh So the next president must be Igbo. Whether he is qualified for the job or not does not matter. How did we get here?? ( rhetorical question)

    of course the elections are around the corner,the vultures are circling.Someone told me yesterday that in Nigeria if one group is shouting,the other has to shout too. whether they know the reason or not.The reason is because when the money will be shared,you too that shouted will get some.All of these greedy men in power from the north,south,east & west turning this country into a joke & playing on the intelligence of the masses.I really wish that Nigerians will see these for what they are-distractions (albeit dangerous distractions)! Within the space of a few months, there have been coup threats,northern youth threats,now ohaneze youths.But an election committee is being constituted!I wish I could say that these people do not speak for the majority,sadly,the easiest way to get a Nigerian(educated or not) to turn against a fellow Nigerian is to mention tribe.The politicians know this,the masses are yet to understand it.

    In Nigeria, everybody has their own mission and their own demand. Igbos want out, Niger-Delta wants their oil block given back to them, Oodua people now also want out, only the Northerners want to remain. They want to remain bombing some parts of the north, sending herdsmen to terrorize other parts and sending Igbos out of their enclave.

    It is well!

    Hahaha…..hopefullly they are not expecting votes from people they call “south waste”, “yorobber”, “bokoharam”, “Fulani cow”. Politics is a game. It will be senile to expect a party the Igbos were not part of its formation to pick an Igbo candidate. It must be delusional to expect a country to pick her president from a group that has been clamouring for secession.

      Other tribes have names they hurl at Igbos. Stop masquerading your hate for Igbos. I’ve followed your contribution on this issue you’re an hypocrite and a simpleton. I don’t like Igbos much, for their arrogance and stupid ego but I’d rather deal with a direct person than deal with your type. State your tribe if you dare. I’m sure your tribe is the worse. Kmt.

    The Igbos must be United as a Unit, I think that is their problem. If u don’t like yourselves, how can you like others?

    Oh my. Best news. Wish igbos can leave today. Nigeria will have clean enviroment. Good drugs. No armed robbers. No kidnappers. Fake products. Prostitues. Hiv girls. Hiv girls. Oh what a glorious day it will be. Cant wait. Please hurry and leave. Lagos my lagos will bloom again. No pollution of hiv rats from east doing olosho. No more ritualist.

    Everyone is here posting comments, taking jabs at one tribe or the other. Yes, it is your right.
    However, remember Sierra Leone, Liberia, Rwanda, former Sudan, Syria, Libya.

    *If war erupts, you all will know that tribalism is the foolish indulgence of an idle mind that dwells in comfort.’
    Nigeria can go the peaceful way and restructure the country but turning these threats to tribal animosity will make everybody a loser.

    Watch the news on war in Syria for tips on what is looming….and *prepare thyself’

    i’m just wondering as Journalist do we not also have a part to play in the way we portray the information.? Otherwise, you become like them. We can’t be promoting hate like this. It doesn’t help anybody. BN your editor should be careful with their article headings. There is away you can be part of the discussion without promoting hatred.

    The Igbo’s can become Biafra tomm. That’s none of my business as long as they don’t include my beautiful state , Rivers state as part of the Biafra state and focus their attention to their Five states and end all thses noise cos they we’ve singing thesame songs before my mom was born and yet no action…

    • Osaze

      June 14, 2017 at 1:46 pm

      Someone called you out that you are not from Rivers state. I believe it. Cause at the end what igbos are fighting for will benefit minority tribes like mine. The only people opposing Igbos are Hausa’s and Yorubas. So, which tribe are you from in Rivers? Type your language if you dare and talk.

      Love it or hate it ,there are indigenous igbos in 7 seven states in Nigeria. RIVERS AND DELTA are part of Ignorance states.

    • nnenne

      June 15, 2017 at 12:49 am

      Auto correct. .mtchew! Rivers and Delta are part of Igbo states
      Ikwere is one of the dialets in Igbo language, so is Ndokwa, Agbo etc.
      All this divide and conquer will not stop us.

    Talk is goes beyong a demand for an Igbo president..2019 is around the corner. The Igbos need to seek out a personality of integrity who is acceptable to the generality of the people and with quality work programme plus campaign, an Igbo president may emerge…presidency is by election o not by appointment. So its not by all this noise they are making

    Oh! What a mirage. That sounded more like a threat. Whose fault is it if u are not good at playing your cards right. Igbos can’t win presidency even if the country is restructured. They are not even united, their larger counterparts don’t even want biafra. U want presidency or biafra, that seems like a bad way of playing politics

    There we go again. You want presidency or you leave Nigeria? Ngwanu, leave Nigeria. You are all making our cause hard to fight for. Which Igbo man do we even want as president? Nnamdi Kanu? Chris Ngige? Peter Obi?
    When you wake up from your dreams, let us know. Until then, continue to wail and cry blue mother.
    By the way, I’m Igbo too.

      Are you saying that Peter Obi and Chris Ngige are not good enough to be President? Buhari is better than the duo?

    This ohaneze represents the typical arrogant igbo man. Igbos better get more intelligent people to speak for them cause the world will soon be watching. If they want people to take them seriously they need to be less arrogant and more tactful.

    See the idiots. how suffocating is their sense of entitlement. Igbo presidency 2019. heck! I am Igbo but if their candidate has nothing to offer I wont vote. they have carried their power rotation to the presidency. Igbo go and restructure your states. make it attractive so that your people will come home to do business.

    Ibos have destroyed any trust they may have had with other tribes of this country. The Hausas never trusted them and now they have alienated the yorubas. Nobody votes for people who openly declare hatred for them. Not that the position of presidency means anything or will bring any development to Ibo land but I can guarantee there wont be an Ibo presidency in this country for 50 years!!

    Ibos may not like my comments but they are naive people politically and architects of the situation they find themselves. Will you vote for a tribe who constantly says they hate you or dont want to be part of your country? It’s stupidity.

    June 14, 2017 at 3:07 pm

    Thank you @xo, after Buhari’s ish!!! No one is interested in this power rotation anymore, we want a candidate who is a technocrat and understands this entity called Nigeria !!! Someone who is smart and intelligent, who is capable and ready to hit the ground running ? in 2019, putting round pegs in round holes!!! Not by any agitation anymore, but via a free and fair election!!!
    @ xo like you rightly said, let them go and firstly take their states from the hands of criminals!!! Imagine their export of drug lords, kidnappers and armed robbers !!!
    If you invite me to the East for anything, I don’t attend!!! Even Rivers is a no go area for me, because the security in those places is zero!!! So firstly Igbo cleanse your people from doing anything to make quick money !!! You guys are a brilliant people!!! You need to make your region safe first, so people can relocate to the East too, the way people relocate to Abuja and Lagos!!!

      Last Christmas I travelled via Laogo’s to my village in Anambra an got home at exactly 11:50pm.
      I was scared before I got to Onitsha because of these negative press but I relaxed when we got to Nkpo because people were still around selling stuff by the road side etc. No problem. Everywhere was aso safe as can be.
      On December 30th, we went to a party in Enugu and went home at the early hours of the morning, no problem. We went to Imo state too No problem. Even some of my Yoruba friends couldn’t believe my story because they said their state was not as safe.
      To each their own.
      This Christmas, am coming home again and am flying straight to Enugu because it is very convenient. Igbos love lgboland,so you all need to relax

      Igbos may travel all over the world looking for better life, especially as they are marginalized at home but they always go back.
      And prostitution is not worst among the igbos. Take a census of Nigerian prostitutes in Europe and publish which Nigerian tribe tops the chart. You all know the answer! !!
      Definitely not igbos.


    June 14, 2017 at 3:32 pm

    Why don’t you morons let the chip fall where it belongs. instead of all this nonsense and crazy demands. I see no problem with an Igbo president of Nigeria. But with all this foolish demands / ultimatum it’s never going to happen. A word is enough for the wise. I’m just saying.

    June 14, 2017 at 3:35 pm

    Who are those ones threatening? When the Igbos can’t live in peace amongst themselves they are here threatening with separation… GO NOW?! Let’s see how long it will last before you lot start killing yourselves…
    See priests in Imo state rejecting a Bishop appointed by the Pope because “He is not a son of the soil” An Igbo man is not a son of the soil because he is from Anambra… these are priests o… talk less of what the others are like…
    Enough of all this tribalism rotation crap and bring a president who will work to make Nigeria a better place for it’s citizens..

    After all the tribes are destroyed and gone, the vultures from the west (US and UK) and those circling from the east (China) will come and pick the bones of disunited Nigerians to clean their teeth. So pathetic, almost 60 years later, Lord Lugard and the colonialist and supremacists are still laughing at our expense and we keep giving them fodder and believe me, they’ll supply us with ammunition at a premium!

    When you don´t have something important doing, then your mind will be a play ground for the enemy our soul- the devil. Instend of you guys to be thinking how to become useful to nigeria and the world, you guys are talking like someone who do not think. You people don´t know how blessed you are in Nigeria with your dieversity. I am so disappointed on the whole Youth of Nigeria. Your dieversity is your blessing youth of Nigeria, keep it safe, I am telling you the truth. Fight postively for a good goverment, because thats all you need in Nigeria a good goverment and stop insulting each other. My goodness Blacks you should love one another. Use your power and your mouth for the good of your great country. See what is happening in south sudan and syira fighting each other. One Nigeria under God Power, God bless Nigeria in Jesus Namen Amen. Akpeno said it all, God bless you.

    I am a full fledged Igbo woman and love every moment of it.
    Nigeria should not make presidents based on their state/ tribe of origin!
    What Nigeria needs is a good, active, creative, intelligent ,21st century president, who must have the whole of Nigeria as his/her constituency. Where she/ he comes from should be irrelevant!
    What Nigeria needs to do now is fix all the auticratic rules imposed on us by the military…restructure so that ,there is justice and fairness.
    Those of us that were against Buhari being the president, do not hate his person but just think that he is not the right man for the job.
    We have not condemned osibanjo because he is qualified for the post he has. At least we can understand his speech!

    As for those hating on Igbos, our best is yet to come. The more you hate on us, the more we prosper.

    For those who are asking Igbos to go, thank you but they can’t go away like that We have to sit together share things that we owe together , write things down etc. before the exit

    I have never seen or heard of a country that is divided along ethnic, tribal and religious lines like Nigeria but yet still manages to co-exist for over 50 years!
    Can we not stop and think that there is something that is unique about that? Rather than maximise our differences, why not strengthen those uniqueness?
    Those things that makes us stand out, e.g our cultures and traditions.
    An Eastern man/woman is know to be industrious, why not use those qualities to strengthen our industries and manufacturing?
    A Northern man/woman is known to be steadfast( we have seen this in their commitment to prayer routine as well as fasting commitment amongst others), why not use those qualities to promote integrity on all levels?
    A Western man/woman is known to be academically incline, why not use those qualities to promote education and research to better the country?
    A Southern man/ woman is known to be peace loving and fair minded, why not use those communal qualities to promote unity and oneness?
    Note, i did not speak on the natural tangible resources these regions hold because i believe the moment we start appreciating the qualities each person harbours, we would begin to appreciate the resources it contributes to our common purpose. This will in turn give everyone a sense of belonging. ‘my thots’.

    Nigeria has zoned the presidency to the south west, south south and the north, why not the south east? I am from Edo state and I can’t understand why the south east can’t have their turn. After all, all it takes for for all parties to fill their presidential candidate with someone from the south south or south east.
