Ebonyi Begins Empowerment Of “Repentant IPOB Members”

On October 4, 2017 382 Comments

Ebonyi State government has said that it has begun data capturing and registration of Ebonyi youths across the 13 local government areas of the state that were misled into Biafra agitation by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Barrister Uchenna Orji, state Commissioner for Economic Empowerment and Job Creation, gave the information in Abakaliki while briefing newsmen on the activities of the administration in the area of youth empowerment.

He stressed that the state government apart from pursuing the action plan of making the repentant IPOB members economically independent, the initiative would also help in reducing social vices and other forms of criminality currently plaguing the society.

The commissioner who stated that the state government had extended its empowerment schemes to Ebonyi youths in other states of the federation including Sokoto, Kaduna, Anambra and Lagos added that over 3,000 youths had so far been empowered in the state.

He disclosed that the state government was set to create 12,000 jobs through the empowerment of 3000 youths, including women as they were being given N250, 000 each to start up any business of their choice, so that they would become economically self-reliant.

Orji further added that the reason for the numerous empowerment programmes of the Governor David Umahi-administration was to increase the per capital income of Ebonyi citizens and ensure the boosting of the economic status of the state.

“These IPOB youths are being registered in the Department of Education and Social Welfare in the LGAs; after their capturing, the state government will create a programme to train them and empower them in their chosen career which we have started. Those of them that have taken to the streets due to lack of job will be empowered so that they can be useful and meaningful to the society. Those who are living and staying outside the state are equally undergoing our empowerment programmes,” he stated.

He called on other members of the proscribed separatist group who have not been captured to quickly do so.

  2. Jude Anyi says:

    Tell David Umahi, or whatever his the governor’s name, that 90% of hawkers on the streets of Lagos are from Ebonyi, he should focus attention on rehabilitating them. IPOB is not repentant, repenting from what ? Are you crazy ? IPOB is a nation not an association, how long will it take you to be stupid Mr Umahi ?

  3. Emeka Anyasor says:

    “Repentant”!! That means they have accepted their status as terrorists. Please can somebody take his time a d explain to these people the implications of that. Militants who carried guns were never classified as terrorists and they were rehabilitated. Our boys are simply jobless and they never carried guns please give them jobs.

  4. Andrew Chinenye Nwachukwu says:

    Biafrans need to do something in Ebonyi state before their governor turns it to amajiri state in Biafra land ,this is disturbing,Last time I read that the biggest mosque in nigeria is in Ebonyi is it poverty or what ,Biafrans can not bought with money,let the governor know this and go to share his money to his amajiri brothers in the north.we are not beggars.

  8. Zobam Josephine says:

    What did IPOB did that they have to repent. For some young people that will go for this greatest mistake of life time called empowerment, be rest assured for you to collect the money, you are termed criminal and this is your tag for life. Be warned. Remember your passport and your details will be there.

    What Every Biafran Know and Prepare For

    ATTENTION ALL BIAFRANS!

    There is a very reliable information that Orji Uzor Kalu the corrupt Hausa Fulani slave with no known father, was actually one of the brains behind the military invasion of the SE alongside Okezie Ikpeazu, Willy Obiano, Rochas Okorocha, Dave Umahi and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, with the support of Nnia Nwodo of Ohaneze Ningbo. Our intelligence team and investigators are gathering all the details of their meetings at various venues in Enugu and Owerri to ascertain the exact role each of them played in the killing of our people in the ongoing Operation Python Dance. We are particularly following the relationship between Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar and Nnia Nwodo to see if the Hausa Fulani cabal blackmailed him to join the conspirators or if he volunteered on his accord. Nwodo publicly pretends he is with IPOB but secretly he is encouraging and applauding Hausa Fulani Islamic soldiers to kill us. The worst two faced traitor ever to lead Ohaneze Ningbo.

    The total prize money for the lead conspiratorial quartet of Orji Uzor Kalu, Obiano, Ikpeazu and Nwodo is a staggering financial reward of N34b from the FG. The complete elimination of Nnamdi Kanu and destruction of IPOB the icing on the cake.

    The world knows that IPOB leader had over time rebuffed all monetary inducements from Orji Uzor Kalu as confirmed by him in his interviews. So all Biafrans especially IPOB need to start telling the genocidal government of Buhari that whatever they spend on these Igbo efulefus is a waste because IPOB remains strong and INDOMITABLE.

    In the days ahead, there will be relentless onslaught and heightened media hype to sell the dummy that IPOB has been weakened, the apex leadership (Directorate of State) headed by Mazi Chika Edoziem decimated. They will pay Nigerian newspaper editors and columnists to say the Biafra struggle led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been abandoned.

    Biafrans must remain mentally strong and resolute. We must ignore this wave after wave of bad news against IPOB. The conspirators have concluded that bad publicity from the press, coupled with anti IPOB statements from Igbo men and Ohaneze will finish off IPOB and our struggle to escape Hausa Fulani Islamic slavery. Again, we must ignore this because we are winning the war.

    The world is on the neck of the Zoo Nigeria to produce our leader. They will seek to hide the truth from the world at all cost even resorting to blackmail and threats. They will also seek to dampen the spirit of those that believe in our leader with negative derogatory and outright foul language. These are the tricks they have carefully laid out, so we must be wise not to fall for it. This is what you must resist. Please pass to all #Hardcore IPOB and our media teams.

  17. Alphonsus Okoli says:

    This guy is a moron. Trying to bribe IPOB after criminally labelling them Terrorrists,then askt to repent from nonexistent crime. The SE Governors and the sellouts are exhibiting the level of ingorance never before seen in any political set up,but the islamization money from the North can make these governors (The 5 Head slaves of the East) get a hunchback prostrating for for their Hasu Fulani Masteters for crumps.

  20. Okoh Okwudili says:

    If I’m given any money by any political thieves, I ll collect. After all, it’s our money not his personal money. Biafra is in hrt not in flag or association. When the time comes, we ll know

  21. Pascal Chiemezie says:

  22. Orji Okalakwu says:

    some will go for money but no matter how they try Biafra can never be bought with money. The spirit Biafra lives in heart of every true #Biafran and must be restored. #FreeBiafra #BiaExit #Referendum

  23. Engr Chidi Aloysius Nwosu says:

    Haha they are collecting money from mumu buhari in the name of non existing rehabilitation but will eventually loot the money, all eastern government are criminals its them that nerd rehabilitation and no ipob members will ever succumb to this senseless project of rehabilitation cos we are smarter and well informed

  24. Chinedu Agbahime says:

  25. Anayo John says:

    illiterate is one among the worst slavery ever,repentant indeed in what basis, those people in question are not ipob,he organized the program to loot the as he can in that regard,Biafra nation is fully sure Amen

  26. Ene ThankGod says:

    The Governor should be ashamed for allowing thousands of youth from his state to litter all the street of Lagos hawking but was very bold to empower people that he impoverished and is oppressing. Its unfortunate.

  27. Cassidy Aniede says:

    IPOB has not committed any crime the people that committed crime areNigeria military, Fulani herdsmen and boko haram. they are the people that need rehabilitation not IPOB. so called Eastern governors are theives they have collected trillions of money from federal government. instead of using it to provide job for the jobless they want to use it to fight IPOB. many people are their without job give them job. IPOB is not interested in that your useless program. Biafra must go. all hail Biafra. we are watching call your people and give them the money and tell the world that they are IPOB. God will punish you people one by one

  28. Chinenye Clever says:
