The Bianfran Leader, Chief Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu joined other patriotic Nigerians to found the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA to serve the interest of Igbos and later declared for the presidency in 2002. The retired colonel was given the 2003 presidential ticket of the party but Obasanjo won the election.

Again, Chief Ojukwu was presented with the party’s ticket to contest the 2007 poll which he lost to Yar'Adua.

Preceding Chief Ojukwu was Dr. Alex Okwueme who came out to contest the primary election of the People's Democratic Party PDP in 1998 and was SOLD OFF by an Igbo Man, Jim Nwaobodo, who when the PDP campaign train went to the North to sell their individual candidates of which Dr. Alex Ekwueme was a FLAG-SHIFT candidate, had Jim Nwaobodo betrayed by speaking Hausa Language to the Hausas discrediting his own kingsman and that was how Dr. Alex Ekwueme lost the opportunity to be first Nigerian President from the Igbo extradition.

In 2007, Ojukwu recorded just 155,947 votes which represented a meager 0.44% of the total votes and IGBOS are still talking about being marginalized??

In 2011 the leadership of Ohanaeze under the leadership of Amb. Raph Uwechue led Ohanaeze into full-blown partisanship.

Ohanaeze Ndigbo became an appendage of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Even at that, Amb. Uwechue repeatedly assured Ndigbo that it would be their turn to go for the Presidency of Nigeria in 2015. This assertion of the Ohanaeze leader found eloquent and powerful expression in the Key Note Address he delivered at a Seminar in commemoration of the Ahiara Declaration in 2012.

In 2014, Igbos were insulted by Chief Gary Enwo-Agariwey, the President General of Ohanaeze with the offensive and heart-breaking statement that Ohanaeze is not interested in the project of Igbo man becoming the President of Nigeria in the 2015 General Elections. Even the predecessors of Agariwey who towed the path he is followed then clearly avoided the heresy of an outright betrayal of the legitimate aspiration of Igbo people by stating that the Pan-Igbo Organisation was not interested in an Igbo man vying to become the President of Nigeria in 2015 even when there were Igbo sons like Iheanyichukwu of Better Nigerian Progressive Party, BNPP, Nwadike Chikezie, People's Mandate Party, PMP and Peter Nwangwu, African Democratic Congress, ADC who contested for that election.

In 2015, Chief Chekwas Okorie contested for the Presidential elections under United Progressive Party, UPP, Godson Okoye under United Democratic Party, UDP, Mr. Allagoa Chinedu was the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Party of Nigeria (PPN), Sam Eke was the Presidential candidate of the Citizens’ Popular Party (CPP) and Martin Onovo contested under National Conscience Party, NCP, but Igbo people voted Goodluck Jonathan of the PDP as their candidate.

5 Igbo men contested for presidency in 2015 and none of them got the votes of Ndi-Igbo, they all voted for an Ijaw man from Bayelsa State.

So, tell me, is what the Igbos are suffering today not SELF INFLICTED??

I think that the agitators of Biafra should as a matter of urgency, start their charity work from home.

The five South-Eastern states are completely misled led by men who had held sway as governor's since 1999 and I think before anything can be done to salvage the situation of Ndi-Igbo, questions of accountability should be asked, so that those who had governed Imo, Abia, Enugu, Ebonyi and Anambra can give full accounts of their stewardship in the various states before coming to Nigeria to make demands.

Until Igbo people put their house in order, Biafra will be faaaar-fetched.
