BreakingNews 27/1/17 - Igbo Marginalization: Nnamani Vindicates Nwodo

[ Masterweb Reports: Chiedozie Alex Ogbonnia reports ] - Very recently, the President of Ohaneze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Chief John Nnia Nwodo came under severe verbal attacks from some Igbos for saying that Ndigbo have borne the brunt of the contradictions in the Nigerian State. However, Nwodo’s remarks are anchored on solid facts of history and no one needs to be a rocket scientist to appreciate the enormity and factuality of Nwodo’s claims. Nwodo is not alone on this.  
 
One is happy that even high-ranking Igbo elites in the ruling APC have come to appreciate the significance of Nwodo’s remarks. For instance, the former Senate President, Chief Ken Nnamani, GCON, on Sunday, January 22, 2017, while registering as a member of the APC at his country home in Amechi-Uwani, in Enugu South Local Government Area of Enugu State, echoed Nwodo’s convictions on the fate of Ndigbo in Nigeria when he admitted the existence of serious imbalances in the country in relation to the Igbo nation. Nnamani said that one of his reasons for joining the APC is to correct the imbalances in the country. According to him, “even if we want to ask that the imbalances in the country should be corrected, we have to ask for that from inside”. He argued that one “cannot stay outside to criticize” the federal government.
 
 
  The pitiable condition of the South East of Nigeria has remained a recurrent decimal such that on November 22, 2015, a meeting of the  South East leaders was convened at Enugu by the South East Governors Forum (SEGF). The well attended meeting issued a four point communiqué red by Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State. According to Okorocha: “After a compassionate review of the recent MASSOB/IPOB agitations in the country, it was resolved that a committee be set up to dialogue with MASSOB/IPOB as well as the Federal Government with a view to finding a lasting solution to the issue. The elders also examined other issues including the poor state of infrastructural facilities in the South East, marginalization in the federal appointment and other socio-economic issues that impact on the South East of Nigeria”. Okorocha further informed that “a delegation of the South East elders has been mandated to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari on the issues raised”
 
 
. There is no doubt that Ndigbo have largely borne the brunt of the contradictions of the Nigerian State and paid the heaviest price. The genocidal pogrom preceding the civil war, the atrocities committed against our people during the war, the use of starvation to annihilate our people, and the deliberate plot to shut Ndigbo out of economic relevance are not spontaneous developments but deliberate policies by the Nigerian State to possibly rout the Igbo out of existence. On the other hand, it is being placed on record that there is no tribe in Nigeria or even in the whole world whose blood has been spilled and forced to pay the supreme sacrifice for national unity more than the Igbo of Nigeria.
 
 
     Ohaneze condemns the unconscionable massacre of innocent and harmless Igbo sons and daughters by the Nigerian security operatives on the pretext of quelling pro-Biafran protests. We cannot continue to watch as thousands of our children are killed and buried in mass graves by the State. This is objectionable and repugnant to the collective conscience of humanity.
 
 
One of the most agonizing imbalances that Nwodo noted in his speech is that “within the six geopolitical zones of Nigeria, it is only the South East zone that has five states. The rest have six and seven states respectively. Similarly, within the 774 local government configuration of the Nigerian federation, just three northern states have more local governments than the whole South Eastern states combined”.
 
 
Nwodo equally lamented that “under this lopsided structure of the Nigerian state, the commonwealth of the Federal Republic of Nigeria continues to be distributed on the bases of states and local governments” On political appointments made by the incumbent Nigerian president, Nwodo regretted that President Muhammadu Buhari has maintained, as an official policy, that political rewards will be based on the voting ratio of 95 percent to the areas that voted him into power and 5 percent to the areas that did not vote for him. Ohaneze considers this policy very unpresidential, un-statesmanly and unacceptable. According to Nwodo, the Igbo representation in the current federal government is very abysmal and falls short of the constitutional provisions for the reflection of federal character in the appointment into important government positions. He pointed out that no arm of the government namely, “the legislature, executive or the judiciary is headed by an Igbo. No section of the armed forces or paramilitary organization is headed by an Igbo..Etc….”
 
 
 Ohaneze notes that it is the cumulative effect of these unstatesmanly policies against the Igbo that has given vent to agitations by MASSOB, IPOB and other pressure groups in Igbo land.
 
 
A Nobel laureate and erudite professor, Wole Soyinka in his characteristic sincerity, acknowledged that “the Igbo have been wronged desperately”. According to him, “they have been brutalized in a way that justifies their feeling that they were not part of the nation” Soyinka expressed that “the Biafran agitators are not entirely innocent in this affair, but the unleashing of such venom and devastation on them as a people was sufficient to justify their decision not to be part of the nation. On his part, the former president of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, on Tuesday, Jan 24, 2017, while speaking in Abeokuta, Ogun State when the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Ogun State visited him stated that “the problem of marginalization has been a major source of conflicts between ethnic and regional divisions in the country. For purpose of equity and justice, Obasanjo threw weight behind a president from Igbo extraction. These are noble thoughts by men who have come to appreciate the plastic power of truth in shaping the society. Ohaneze salutes them.
 
 
 However, in October 2016, the former Governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Uzo Kalu, stated that the Igbos are their own worst enemies. It is against this backdrop that Igbo traitors, renegades and job seekers would issue statements alleging that Nwodo is Inciting the Igbo Against the Federal Government. I am yet to know any society that is devoid of such petty characters. And we shall not dignify them by mentioning their names. But, let it be known that in Igbo cosmology as in other African cultures, a curse is often placed on any person who deliberately goes against the collective corporate interest of his group. Such a curse, contrite and remorseful as one may later show, resides in the person and his or her offspring in perpetuity. This is why those who sabotaged the Biafran spirit during the Nigerian Biafra war still recoil in shame, 47 years after.
 
 



For emphasis, all politics, according to Tip O’Neill, is local. Politics is not always the art of the possible, as Otto Von Bismark tried to posit; rather it is most times the art of choosing between the sacred and the profane; the sublime and the ridiculous; the grace and disgrace. This accounts for the ageless caution by Plato when he implied that wanting things just for the immediate gains can turn a man’s life into a marshmallow on a stick over a hot fire.
 
 
 
For the avoidance of doubt, Ohaneze Ndigbo as a socio-cultural organization transcends partisanship. On the other hand, Ohaneze does not espouse any political party. Rather, Ohaneze is allergic to the persistent injustice to the Igbo and wherever it rears it’s ugly head. Irrespective of political affiliations, Ohaneze Ndigbo is well disposed to working with anybody or organization that appreciates the naked structural imbalance targeted against Ndigbo and willing to address the Igbo question in Nigeria.
 
 
Ohaneze advocates for a political arrangement that does not shortchange any tribe in Nigeria including the Igbo. Ohaneze envisions a country where the innate potentials that are locked by the structural dysfunctions are unleashed for the prosperity of all Nigerians. Ohaneze advocates the core imperatives of a true federal structure along the six geopolitical zones. A structure that encourages the vast resources that are long buried in the subsoil of the federating unit to be explored and harnessed for the benefit of mankind. These and more informed the Nwodo epic.
 
 
Every Igbo person appreciates the above facts irrespective of party persuations. Ohaneze Ndigbo, therefore, salutes the likes of Governor Rochas Okorocha and Chief Ken Nnamani for their courage in admitting the obvious imbalances skewed against the Igbo in Nigeria. This, exactly, was the thrust of the inaugural speech by Chief John Nnia Nwodo wherein he lamented that “the South East of Nigeria has remained a dangling appendage of the Nigerian State in every sphere of our national existence”.
 
 
 Ndigbo, both at home and in the Diaspora are proud of His Excellency, Chief John Nnia Nwodo,Ike Ukehe, the President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo World Wide. He is a man with the spark of God and a stellar ancestral history with heroic pedigree. Above all, his knowledge of national politics stands him out. We commend him for hitting the nail on the head. By all standards, Nwodo embodies the consciousness of the Igbo.
 
 
 Ike Ukehe, they will strive, though as villains, to weave a net of infamy around your neck, simply because you thrive in the firmament of wisdom, candour, courage, intellect, character, heroism and prophecy. Weary not for these are indestructible spiritual elements that in spite of adversaries move on to accomplish their missions. I have spoken and so mote it be.
