Eke Thu. 07 April 2022:
The Igbo Revolution has kept urging Ndi Igbo to forsake M. I. Okpara politics of Handshake Across the Niger. Maka na ulu adiro na nyabu isi azu ma ncha!
Where is the evidence that Ndi Yoruba want anything to do with Igbo politically? Zero!
There was zero evidence during Premier M. I. Okpara administration (1959-1966), and there has been zero evidence since then till today.
Why then do we still bet on M. I. Okpara’s irresponsible politics that sold the Handshake-Across-the-Niger self-destruction to us?
• To achieve M. I. Okpara’s Handshake with Yoruba, 4 Igbo majors introduced coup d’etat into the body politics of this country to crown Okpara’s hero, Obafemi Awolowo, Prime Minister.
• To achieve M. I. Okpara’s Handshake with Yoruba, Ojukwu relied on Okpara’s hero, Obafemi Awolowo, to be the godfather of his new Republic of Biafra.
In the end what happened? What happened was that Okpara’s Yoruba romance destroyed us as follows:
Majority of the Murtala Mohammed soldiers that wiped out Asaba during the war were Yorubas. And mind you that Asaba was never a part of Biafra.
Awolowo, Adekunle, Akinwale-Wey, Obasanjo, etc. fought us like they never fought either Hausa-Fulani or the white man. They swore that by the time they finished with us, only 5,000 of us would be authorized to be outside Igboland at any point in time!
During Yorubas’ June 12 Agitation, Igbo fully supported them, again, in the spirit of Handshake Across the Niger. But how did Yoruba pay us back?
They did so by calling our dissenting leaders “Beasts of no Nation” in their Lagos Evening News newspaper etc. At no point were they appreciative of our support.
Most Hausa-Fulani and some Yoruba leaders—such as the Ooni of Ife, Emir of Kano, and Sultan of Sokoto—were bitterly against June 12, yet no Yoruba media, street, or elite castigated them.
When has any Igbo heard anything politically positive about Igbo from Yoruba leaders? And when has any Igbo heard anything politically negative about Hausa-Fulani from Yoruba leaders?
Tunde Bakare is not eccentric. He is faithful to Yoruba playbook against Igbo survival. He is in lockstep with Tinubu, Osinbajo, Obasanjo, Awolowo, Adeboye, Kumuyi, and so on.
Ndi Igbo, Yorubas are adversarial to all Nigerian ethnicities except Fulani.
Ndi Igbo, stop going to Yoruba churches and stop funding them, and stop stumping for the Handshake Across the Niger bullshit that M. I. Okpara sold to you, if you really want things to be well with your descendants.
Ndi Igbo, support your own churches and ethnicity! Stop being the apronstring of an ethnicity you are way bigger and more ancient than!
