Biafrans Should Be Allowed To Go If They’re Tired Of One Nigeria – Northern Elders

Published

ango abdullahi

The Northern Elders have made U-turn on the Biafra agitation.

Speaking through one of the vocal voices and National Chairman of the Northern Elders Forum Prof Ango Abdullahi the northern elder said if the Igbo are tired in remaining in Nigeria, they should be allowed to leave.

He stated this while answering questions in an interview with Daily Sun. Professor Ango said he said it openly in front of the Vice President of Nigeria Prof Yemi Osinbajo that he supports Biafra in line with the principle of self-determination.

He said: ”I do if the Igbo want it. If the people of Igbo want Biafra I support them. I said this in front of the Vice-President that I support Biafra if the people of Biafra want Biafra according to the principles of self determination as agreed in the United Nations. It is a convention people should have their self determination.

See what is happening…I mean South Sudan had self determination and Nigerians if they are tired because I have said so openly that if Nigerian elites particularly those who are creating all the problems we are having today if they feel that we cannot sit down and talk honestly…

Loading...

”Yes I am and I am saying we should sit down and face each other and say we want one Nigeria. If we say we want one Nigeria okay let’s sit down and discuss how we will get along with the job of creating one Nigeria. But if at some point we feel that one Nigeria will not be possible except on individual terms, not on collective terms then I am in favour of quietly and peacefully going our different ways. That is what I have said. I still say so.” he said.

    Don’t be deceived with the northern politics. how can the same man that oppose common restructuring support the Igbos exit from Nigeria, when they control the oil blocks in eastern region. today you hear them, Nigeria should be divided, tomorrow the will tell you that “Nigeria unity is non-negociatable”.

    May God bring us that day soonest, when every region wanting to be on its own will actualised their dreams. I will be one of the happiest people on earth. When that is done everybody should be given three (3) months to relocate from where one is resident to the side or country where he belongs. Abundant of opportunities Will avail themselves to the people in their places or countries. Whoever has to visit anywhere other than his, should do so through the usual VISA application. May God help us and Hastings this day. Ameen.

    Ogun is also an important divinity that can not be dispensed with. Ogun is said to have created the pathway for the four hundred and one divinities. He protects and blesses his devotees. To avoid disaster on the highways,airways, waterways, ogun is usually appeased to. That’s why they call him the divinity of iron. Those who deal or metals cannot neglect him. In fac,t the Yoruba believe they live in the world of ogun. Some of his children include knife,cutlass,hoe,axe,gun needles,airplane,ship, automobile and all things made of iron. (Prayer from odu ifa ogundabede)………..crying of a big animal fearful look of a big animal fearful posture of an elephant is more than that of buffalo.cast deviation for ogun while going to triumph over Ede.if death is imminent,use your pot to cover me if sickness is imminent,use your pot to cover me if loss is imminent,Use your pot to cover me if litigation is imminent,use your pot to cover me if trouble is imminent, use your pot to cover me if all evil

    One begins to wonder why they made a lot noise when the North gave them quit notice. I understand Lagos state gave them similar notice, albeit indirectly. Most youths respond with insults, as if there is a roadblock to the SE. Nobody is stopping any tribe from leaving Nigeria. With all the cacophony of noises about Biafra, I am yet to read or hear of a single motion/bill tabled at the National Assembly by any of their senators/reps. Nations are not begotten by abuses/insults of other tribes, regions & religion on social media. They are gotten either by constitutional means or by force. Force was tried way back (1967-70) that only resulted in 2.5 million needless deaths, devastation of the region, hunger & starvation, without achieving its intended goal. Nnamdi Kanu came with his vociferous masquerade dance, without providing any viable option, then disappeared into oblivion.
    What is required is diplomacy, negotiations & lobbying so that Biafra could be created constitutionally. This Arewa elder has thrown the bait, to wit, that if the Biafrans are desirous of leaving, let them be allowed to go. What is wrong with that to elicit insults? All they needed to do was to reach out to other nationalities, make their case & lobby for their votes. Perhaps Biafra may achieved at a roundtable than through abuses/insults on social media.

FIRS: Abba Kyari’s Query That Sacked Tunde Fowler

Published

on

In a letter dated August 8, 2019, Abba Kyari, chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari gave Babatunde Fowler, then chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service a query. Kyari wanted a response within a few days.

In the query, Kyari wrote: “Your attached letter (FIRS/EC/CWP/0249/19/027 dated 26 July 2019) on the above subject matter, refers.

“We observed significant variances between the budgeted collections and actual collections for the period 2015 to 2018. Accordingly, you are kindly invited to submit a comprehensive variance analysis explaining the reasons for the variances between budgeted and actual collections for each main tax item for each of the years 2015 to 2018.

“Furthermore, we observed that the actual collections for the period 2015 to 2017 were significantly worse than what was collected between 2012 and 2014. Accordingly, you are kindly to explain the reasons for the poor collections.

“You are kindly invited to respond by 19 August 2019.

Abba Kyari’s Query for Fowler that may have triggered the non-renewal of Fowler’s tenure

“Please accept the assurances of my highest regards.”

The government observed that in 2015, FIRS set N4.7 trillion target but was only able to make N3.7 trillion in the actual collection.

In 2016 the target collection was N4.2 trillion, but the actual was N3.3trillion.

The same happened in 2017 when the tax revenue estimate was put at N4.8 trillion, but only N4trillion entered the treasury.

In 2018, the government also noted that N6.7 trillion was estimated for collection, but the actual collection was N5.3 trillion.

The gravity of the letter and its timing made many observers believe that Fowler was being targeted and that his tenure didn’t stand a chance of renewal.

The former Lagos chief taxman, a classmate of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at Igbobi College in the 70s, was appointed by Buhari in August 2015. But the Senate did not confirm him until December 2015.

Some analysts believe that Fowler’s shoving aside by Aso Rock may also have something to do with Osinbajo, as he falls out of favour with the cabal in Aso Rock.

Around the time that Abba Kyari’s query was circulating in the social media, a group that called itself “Concerned Staff of FIRS”, also petitioned President Muhammadu Buhari over what it called “the atrocities and infractions” allegedly perpetrated by Fowler.

In an open letter, the group advised President Buhari not to re-appoint Fowler because the FIRS boss had “unimaginably taken it back to the old dark period of inefficient and ineffective days.”

It also recommended that the activities of Fowler from the day he was appointed up to his last day in office should be investigated and brought to book for all infractions he had committed while holding sway as the Executive Chairman of FIRS, SR reports.

The group wrote, “One would have expected that his appointment would improve the hallmark achievements he met on the ground but the reverse is the case. The first seven months of his tenure as the chief executive of FIRS has led to a series of abuse/violation of laid down processes and procedures, a flagrant disobedience to established rules, policies and laws, a total disrespect to the leadership in various coordinating groups, departments and other positions within the service and a total collapse of the entire system.

“The noble and professional institution (FIRS) which was left behind by his predecessors has completely been politicized and has now become a Mecca or Jerusalem of some sorts to politicians and parasitic contractors.

“This rascality was further heightened by the claim that the current Vice President is his (Fowler’s) friend and a school mate and for this reason, he could abuse the due process and get away with it. In saner climes, his relationship with the vice president must propel him to respect all known processes, procedures, laws and constituted authority while discharging his duties and responsibilities as a public officer who would be held accountable for his actions and inactions. Sadly enough, the reverse is the case in FIRS.”

Other allegations against the FIRS boss included extravagant weekly spending on concerts and parties in Lagos, Port Harcourt and other major cities within and outside Nigeria, frivolous donations to organizations while staff entitlements for official engagements would take a long time to settle.

The FIRS staff claimed that Fowler had got away with what it termed corporate and institutional lies about FIRS performance, adding that while Fowler announced N1.5 trillion as tax revenue in the first quarter of the year, the sum of N1.07 trillion was the actual collection for the same period.
