Insecurity is as a result of failed leadership – Ohanaeze Ndigbo

Nigeria Terrorism

The grand patron of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo in Cross River State, Chief Fidelis Obi Onyebuske has accused the federal government of failing in leadership.

According to him, the failed leadership brought about insecurity, attacks on security agents as well as burning of police stations and prisons, including the release of inmates and prisoners.

Chief Onyebuske who was a one-time President General, Igbo Community in Calabar, Cross River State, lamented poor security situation in Nigeria and blamed it on the failure of the leadership to act proactively, particularly as it concerns herdsmen and bandits.

Speaking to DAILY POST, Onyebuske, who is a legal practitioner said, “If there was no failed leadership, no group of people can stand up and burn police stations. It is as a result of a failed leadership.

“Government should do something to make sure that what happened in the North East and North West does not get down to the South East.

Consequently, the grand patron of Ohanaeze Ndigbo urged the federal government to investigate deeply the recent security breaches in the South East to ascertain those responsible for the acts, without which, the Igbos will not be comfortable travelling home, “that is my fear” he said.

Speaking further, he explained, “Yes when it comes to the issue of security, it is one of the issues that concerns the lives of the people as the people will be comfortable when there is security.

“I know insecurity is part of the society, but you do not feel it directly when it doesn’t happen around you.

“We used to hear insecurity in the North East and the North West, but unfortunately it has come down to us. In some years back, it used to be Niger Delta; precisely, Rivers and Belyelsa States. I never dreamt it will come to Igbo land.

“We know that the youths have been very restive in Igbo land, particularly the IPOB; they are not very comfortable with what is going on in the society.

“But all these times, from the time of MASSOB to IPOB before it was proscribed, there had been no violence and this sudden act of insecurity which is reportedly carried out by unknown gunmen, I personally cannot ascribe it to a particular group except the group comes out to accept responsibility.

“In my local government area, they burnt down a police station, our neighbours’ police station was also burnt down, about four police stations have been burnt down. If the police are molested like that, what is the guarantee that we are safe?” he stated.

Oduduwa Republic will pave way for Igbos – Pastor Giwa tells Buhari

The Senior Pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Christ Ministry, Adewale Giwa, on Thursday told President Muhammadu Buhari that the Oduduwa Republic would pave the way for Igbos.

Giwa also warned the president that he can not stop marginalized Nigerians from secession.

In a statement forwarded to DAILY POST, the clergyman stressed that the Oduduwa Republic and Biafra are beyond the president.

He said, “You can’t stop the freedom of Nigerians who have determined to go their separate ways. This project is beyond the president, army or police.

“Oduduwa Republic is here already and it will pave the way for Igbos who have been marginalized for years. Let me advise President Muhammadu Buhari not to waste his energy to stop people’s decisions.

“The presidency ought to have admitted failure instead of trying to justify the reason Nigerians should continue to stay together in poverty. What has president Buhari done since 2015 to date to keep the country together? Should we agree with the president by appointing his people in the key positions that have come out to be negative?

“Should Nigerians continue to fold their arms against injustice, oppression and bad governance? President Buhari should prepare to kill millions of Nigerians instead of trying to stop their freedom.

“Freedom is you asking nothing from anyone, depending on nothing from anyone and expecting nothing from anyone. Why should a state governor be waiting for the president before he performs his duties?

“Why should citizens beg governors to provide jobs for them before they do so? In a sane society, a government provides for its citizens. Why is it that they have failed to reason like human beings?

“I have worked under you for 20 years with no achievements. I woke up one day and said to myself it’s time to stand on my feet, but you said I shouldn’t go. Won’t I go by force?

“Everybody wants happiness, nobody wants pain. Why must you stand on my way? If you don’t want people to go, then, quickly address hunger, insecurity, unemployment, nepotism, selfishness and tribalism.

“You can’t keep Nigerians together without solving their challenges. You can’t force them to be together when your administration has woefully failed them in the last five years.

“Oduduwa Republic has gone beyond president Buhari’s imagination. It is a project of the people, by the people and for the people.”
