*Nigeria: Masterweb Wishes Dim Ojukwu Happy Birthday

By Masterweb News Desk

Chief Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Ikemba (strength of a nation) and General, is an icon that will never be forgotten in the history of Nigeria. Ikemba turns 78 years today and is wished happy birthday and quick recovery. He has weathered through turbulent times that took the lives of revolutionaries. Dim Ojukwu, as he is also popularly referred to, lived over forty years before his time. What he saw in the 60s, spoke against and fought against, has taken most Nigerians over forty years to see. The center cannot hold in Nigeria, unless most elements of the Aburi Peace Accord are implemented. That was how Ikemba and others saw it as a way out of the Nigerian impasse after the second military coup.

Ojukwu came back to the East and rallied support for the peace accord, but as easterners clamoured "On Aburi We Stand", the federal government remained silent. Some western imperialists worked against the implementation of the Aburi Peace Accord for their own selfish interest in Nigeria. The interest of the peoples of Nigeria was not regarded. Gowon declared a state of emergency in the East and announced the creation of 12 states on May 26, 1967. On May 30, 1967, after consultations with the Council of Chiefs and Elders, Ojukwu proclaimed the independent state of Biafra. The bombs rained and the bullets flew, beating down and crushing a popular people's uprising and demand.

All the factors that led to the civil war still exit in Nigeria today. Would Nigeria have been saved if the Aburi Peace Accord was implemented instead of going to war? Every reader has the right to read details of the accord and arrive an answer himself or herself. ( Continues below….. )

Masterweb wishes great Ikemba quick recovery and happy birthday. All news media that knowingly or unknowingly published news of his demise, abandonment or vegetative state, owe him an apology and should keep the records straight by wishing him happy birthday. He is not on live support as speculated by an online Nigerian news media.

Jonathan okolintaWe the Igbos have to continue where the Ikemba stoped by suporting the mighty MASOB.If you look at other countries in the world,there is no other one refare as 'ONE' There is no One Ghana, One Togo, One Britain. One Chad. Only Nigeria is "ONE".They know that we are not ONE, that is why they are shouting: "ONE NIGERIA" Enough will be enough IF....

Okei WapiRename Abia Tower in Umuahia EMEKA ODUMEGWU OJUKWU SQUARE. Beautify it with ornamental trees. Create Ojukwu statue by public subscriptions and open the square for public events in Iboland. Abia Tower means nothing. EMEKA ODUMEGWU OJUKWU SQUARE means
something, a lot really.

Prince Maxwell O. IhesiabaOjukwu remains the eyes of the Igbos why because despite his age, he still stands firm in his words and always have Igbo’s right at the bottom of his heart which no other Igbo man has ever done that.
If Ojukwu is a man of selfish interest he would has been the most riches Igbo man within eastern zone why because, with his academic standard he is a great and strong instrument for the western world from my observation Ojukwu refused every proposition made.
