Chief Paul Unongo comes across here as somebody who is afflicted with a
geriatric lapses of memories, Stockholm Syndrome or both.
Perhaps,he is one of the products of the late Sarduana of Sokoto,Alhaji Sir Ahmed Bello’s Northernization Education Policy, like the rest of the Northern Elder Elites?
Nigeria is supposed to be a Democratic Country.
Thus, Chief Paul Unongo’s silly talk about Igbo Presidency is simply a clinche
However,it is indeed very unforunate that Nigeria is currently not a Democracy and will never ever be one ,as long as there is that much of our easy Niger Delta oil money for our Elected Officials to loot and share amongst themselves.
That devil’s excrement,petroleum, is not only a curse to us,the people of the Lower Niger Region in particular , but also to Nigerians in general.
To put it more succinctly ,Nigeria is Kleptocratic Banana Republic and all our Elected Officials are Kleptocrats ,who went into politics not to serve the Sovereign Electorate, but because of their easy access to the lucre.
Nigeria is the only Democratic Country in the world where Governors leave their Higher Offices and head down to the Senate or o the House of Assembley simply for the lucre ,nomore no less.
Chief Paul Unongo does owe us, gallant and brave Biafran Vetereans his
unreserved and his heartfelt apologies for his criticism of our taking up arms in defence of Biafran Fatherland and our people of Biafra against Pol Pot Yakubu Gowon’s War of Genocide against us and our Sovereign State of Biafra.
Our Republic of Biafra was accorded full Diplomatic Recognitions by the following countries: Cote d’Ivoire, Gabon,France, Haiti, Israel, Portugal, Tanzania,the Vatican and Zambia.
Such countries like, China,Finland , Ghana, Republic of Ireland, Norway, Somalia and Sweden did also offer us Biafrans, a de facto Diplomatic
It all started with a pogrom against Easterners in the Sabongaris through out the North at first.Easterners were routed and sent packing from the North.
But when Pol Pot Yakubu Gowon who later took over after the counter Coup
d’Etat, asked the Igbo to return to their jobs,the Yorubas of Abeakuta, Ibadan
and Lagos joined the Northerners in the pogroms then against the Igbos.
Po Pot Yakubú Gowon did expel the American Press Corps from Nigeria,
because they reported how innocent Igbo children,men and women were
chased and slaughtered like rats in the streets of Abeakuta,Ibadan,and also in Lagos,the then Capital of Nigeria by their Qua (Kwa) Yoruba Cousins.
Pot Pot Yakubu Gowon did renege on the Aburi Accords ,which he had signed
with Ikemba Ojukwu in Ghana.
Instead of handing over Power to his Superior Officer, Gen.Babafemi Ogundipe, as aggred in Ghana ,Gowon stuck to his gun,and launched his failed Police Action agains the then Eastern Nigeria.
Chief Paul Unongo does of course know the rest of the story.
For his information,Restructuring of the country is simply a revised form of that Aburi Accord,which Pol Pot Yakubu Gowon did refuse to implement.
It was all about devolving power to the then Four Regions of Nigeria,East,Mid-
West,North and the West ,with of course,a 100% Resource Control.
But now it is simply about devolving that sme power to our current 6 Geo-Political Zones.
Chief Paul Unongo ought be bold and forthright as an Elder Statesman by calling a spade a spade.
President Muhammadu Buhari is simpl a desaster jare.
No to the status quo ante bellum!
Down with Hausa Fulani Islamic Hegemony!!
