The world Igbo Union says professor Anthony Ejiofors appearance on Rudolph Okonkwo’s platform does not represent the general interest of the Igbo race in Nigeria.

This is contained in a statement by the leader of World Igbo Union, WIU, mazi Ogechukwu Nkere and made available to Newsmen in Abuja.

The statement describes the appearance of the chairman ,World Igbo congress, WIC, Prof Anthony Ejiofor’s
on Rudolf Okonkwo’s platform as a mere ploy to twist the fact of the matter.

“While we appreciate his in-depth knowledge and understanding of the plight of Ndi Igbo in Nigeria he was a bit twisted on the solutions he is advocating to our issues in Nigeria”

According to the statement ,Professor Ejiofor claimed that the sole objective of World Igbo Congress, (W.I.C) is the safety of Igbo lives and properties but has allegedly remained silent to majority of the alleged killings and banditry perpetuated by Fulani terrorist in Igbo Land, it then does not need an empirical research to claim that he and the organisation does not represent the global interest of Ndi Igbos.

The statement further explained that during the interview, Prof Ejiofor intellectually expounded on the security architecture of the Igbo Land and was right on the claim that the Nigerian Army have been allegedly infiltrated by Fulani Herdsmen, repentant Boko Haram, Iswab and other terrorist units. He was also right in his claim that these terrorists have infiltrated Southeast Nigeria forests kidnaping, Killing and butchering innocent citizens. These terrorists also burn churches, homes, markets and business with the alleged motive to overrun the Igbo Land with Islamic agenda.

“Professor Ejiofor addressed the inadequacy of Ebebe Agu whom he called thugs to political gladiators who do not have the interest of Igbos and cleverly demonstrated his understanding of the historic sufferings, marginalisation, subjugation and alienation of the Igbo Race politically and economically by the Fulani Nigerian Government (Rudolf played clips by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and Ikemba Odimagwu Ojukwu to help

“Against this background, to jump onto Rudolf Okonkwo’s programme to validate the continuity of the undisputed maltreatment of the Igbo Race, by advocating against no election in Biafra Land is misleading the Igbo Race you claim to lead”

On the same programme Prof Ejiofor highlighted his concern over the few days sit at home. The fact that no one heard his cry over many months that our people sat at home during Covid 19 periood without government assistance makes his concern a political gimmick rather than a genuine concern for the wellbeing of our people. On this same issue of sit at home the World Igbo Union wishes to remind everyone that, Biafrans are willingly sitting at home in protest of the continued detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the long suffering of the Igbo Race in Nigeria ; this have nothing to do with Mazi Simon Ekpa.

The statement informed Nigerians that in the absence of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, “Mazi Simon Ekpa is the next globally accepted Igbo Leader stressing that Mazi Simon Ekpa commands the support and loyalty of majority of Igbos more than any acclaimed Igbo leader and the World Igbo Union will insist on stoppage of negative activities against Mazi Ekpa from henceforth”

In the statement : “The World Igbo Union have taken keen interest and detailed note of your threats against Mazi Simon Ekpa (The Biafran Spokes Man) which is not taken lightly and should anything happen to him Professor Anthony Ejiofor the W.I.U and entire Southeast Nigeria and Biafra will hold you and your likes responsible.

“Since the unlawful detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya by the Fulani terrorist government of Nigerua, Professor Ejiofor and his acclaimed Organization have not been vocal about this illegal Kidnapping, disregard to the rule of law and court orders, inhumane treatment in DSS detention, and his worsening health condition”

“You claimed to have regular legal briefings on Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s case but the general Igbo public is yet to hear or read from you loudly on this matter. Your talk about Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and Igbo issues in such strong terms at this election period makes your motives politically suspicious to World Igbo Union. You noted that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has won all the legal case against him and now illegally held in detention by the president. Knowing all these facts and advocating for 2023 election presents a case of intellectual mismatch or wilful deceit”

“The World Igbo Union wish to alert you and your likes that in the absence of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Southeasterners and Biafrans believe that Mazi Simon Ekpa is the last man standing to lead them through the bridge of their destination and we warn you not to stand in the way of this moving train.

In addressing you, a member of your panel Madam HO told you categorically that you leaders have lead us all astray, this is not far from the truth and you acclaimed that today in Nigeria all our youths are angry. Once again professor your validation of 2023 election against this background is misleading and not for the global interest of the Igbo Race..
It is the opinion and view of the World Igbo Union that it was more interesting listening to Biafra Information Minister of the African Union Chanel than listening to your disguised politically engineered campaign. This is so because in your interview with Rudolf Okonkwo you sounded and came across more like Peter Obi’s campaign Manager than an Igbo leader.

World Igbo Union dismiss your interview and unanimously stand with Mazi Simon Ekpa’s Programmes of sit at home and No ELECTION IN BIAFRA LAND”
