Former Governor of Anambra state, Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife is a different breed of Igbo elite, the type every IPOB family member should be proud of.
Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife on Kakaki, an AIT daily morning program, lambasted the Buhari – led federal government of Nigeria without any fear or favour, while vehemently defending Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra.
Dr Ezeife exhibited the bluntness akin to that of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu while describing Buhari on AIT earlier today. Anyone that watched him on television will agree that Dr Ezeife is an Igbo elite of a different color and brand.
“On the viral video going around where Hausa Fulani soldiers, forced some Igbos to suffocate themselves in a mud he said, “We are taking that video to the United Nations today; the moment I leave here, we’re on way to United Nations to officially launch our report so the world can know what is hatred”
Emeka Ezeife has been a blunt critic of this visionless government. Read some of his responses in respect to the feelings of the Igbo in this present government.
“In his first ever appointment”, Buhari, “after he assumed office, he appointed 47 persons into lucrative positions without a single Igbo man having a shot. Buhari has an adopted hatred for a whole Igbo race; he hates the Easterners with a passion.
Remember there are six topmost positions in Nigeria”, (presumably the: President, Vice President, Senate President, Speaker of the House, Chief Justice of the Nigeria, and Secretary to Federal Govt), “everybody thought Buhari would at least let an Igbo man have the post of the Secretary to Federal Government, which is the least of them all, yet again that hatred manifested”.
I watched as the anchor lady became apprehensive, and reminded him the possibility of his comment inciting the public of which he replied, “I bear the responsibility of all I am saying here today. I continue”.
“Now look at his latest appointment into the NNPC management positions, a whole 15 of them, no single Igbo man. What do you call that? Are you surprised to notice resentment against this govt here and there?”.
On the viral video going around where Hausa Fulani soldiers, forced some Igbos to suffocate themselves in a mud he said, “We are taking that video to the United Nations today; the moment I leave here, we’re on way to United Nations to officially launch our report so the world can know what is hatred”.
The anchor lady requested, assuming he was the Federal Government, to know what would have been his response to the secessionist activities of Kanu.
He quickly In his response reprimanded the lady, “Nnamdi is never a secessionist and has never engaged in any resemblance of secessionist activity. Listen, young lady, Self-determination is different from secession.
Secession is a violent act where you declare yourself an independent state, while Self-determination is a legitimate process recognized by law through people can seek a country of their own.
All Nnamdi is calling is a Referendum. How can anybody call that secession? No I add: remember no Igbo man is a service chief, no Igbo man is heading any paramilitary of any kind.
If you are an Igbo, and you see nothing wrong with this system, my dear, the remotest part of hell is reserved for you.
