Dear Nigeria, What Do You Want From The Igbos?

The Igbo speaking people of Nigeria asked for Biafra but Nigeria refused and said the country must be one.

A Dutch man drew a cartoon of Mohammed in faraway Denmark, you people go around killing the Igbos and destroying their properties in the North.

Philips Emegwali invents a super-fast computer, you say a “Nigerian” invents. Igbo student in diaspora makes good grades, you say a “Nigerian” graduates top of the class. But Ikechukwu Abia is caught trafficking drugs, you say an “Igbo” man is caught with drugs abroad.

The Igbo man does his business and prosper, you people say they want to steal your land and rule over you. 90% of oil blocs in the South are owned by Northerners, you people do not say they have stolen someone’s land and resources.

The Igbos ask for the Presidency, you people laugh at them and say “over your dead body.” The North has rule Nigeria for over 38years and they keep threatening everyone else that they are being marginalized, and so they start bombing everywhere, you people say let’s negotiate with them.

Igbos vote for Jonathan, you people say they are myopic and tribalistic. The North and the West voted for Buhari, you people say it is called “change” and democracy.

Igbos rally behind Jimi Abaje, you people say they will drown in the lagoon. Ambode won, you people start cursing them.

Adamu Ciroma and co said “The North would make this country ungovernable if a Northerner does not become President” and “They’ll be no Nigeria if power does not return to the North”. You people call them “Elder Statesmen”,”Party Stalwart”, “Northern leader”, etc.

Nnamdi Kanu says the same thing but you people call him “a retard”, “treasonable criminal”, “war-monger”, “evil” and so on.

During the last elections, Radio and TV stations in the North play jihad songs while making anti-GEJ campaigns, say all sorts of things in Hausa, no newspaper headline asked for them to be banned. Of course you people call it politics.

Radio Biafra does same, all hell is let loose. You people say they spreading bigotry and dangerous propaganda.

Do you people have an IGBOPHOBIA? Of course not! No one will agree. But do you think the Igbos are a problem, everyone will raise their hands. But we ask, why don’t you let the Igbos separate and go their way, you people give me that terrorist look.

Dear landlords, just one question:

What do you want the Ibos to do to please you?
