From Mazi Onyebuchi Eze (A Biafran Activist)
Dear America Government,
BIAFRANS ARE HAPPY FOR YOUR INVITATION
It is with hearts full of gratitude from Biafrans all over Biafra land over the bold step taken by American government in inviting Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the Supreme Command of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to the White House for a discussion bothering on demand for Biafra referendum, than I, Mazi Onyebuchi Eze (A Biafran Activist) of Family Writers Press and other millions of my fellow Biafrans wish to write this open letter for the American government to register our gratitude for showing interest in supporting the call for Biafran referendum which is the issue of the moment around the world. The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Worldwide is not ignorant of the lobbyings of Nigeria and British government at different corridors of world powers to dissuade nations like America, Turkey, Israel and Morocco who have genuine interest in wanting to lend their support in the present demand for Biafra referendum.
Dear America govern met, the joy of Biafrans knows no bound when the news brokered that American government under President Donald Trump has given an invitation to IPOB for a meeting in White House scheduled for July 21, 2017 which its sole agenda bothers on the demand of Biafrans for referendum which will pave way for Biafra restoration. I want the government of America to know that there is no amount of both human resources and material resources of Biafrans which Nigeria government has not destroyed due to the struggle for Biafra restoration. Therefore, the only restitution that can be given to Biafrans considering the lives of Biafrans and their properties lost on the road for Biafra restoration is total RESTORATION of BIAFRA.
Dear America government, it will interest the White House to know that Nigeria government ordered a brutal clampdown that was unleashed on Biafrans who were only on a peaceful IPOB organized Trump inauguration rally done only to show solidarity to then incoming America president which held on 20/1/2017 at our ancestral City of Port Harcourt in Biafra and the attack claimed hundreds of lives of Biafrans during rally who were gunned down by Nigeria combined armed forces drawn from its Army, Police and SSS. It is on record that before the rally which took place on 20/1/2017, IPOB notified Nigeria Police Force of the rally through a written notice dated 18/1/2017 which a certified copy of the written notice was sent to American Embassy in Nigeria. It is also important for American government to know that Nigeria government through its trigger-happy armed forces committed sacrilege against America government by burning American flags alongside Russian flags, Israeli flags and Biafran flags confiscated from the peaceful Biafrans during the IPOB Trump rally.
Dear America government, this burning of a sacred national symbol of American government such as its flag left a serious unanswered question in the heart of Biafrans which is “is Nigeria at war with America”? Why is Nigeria military burning American flag just because Biafrans are identifying with Americans as they are having a peaceful transition from one tenure under Obama to another tenure under Trump? In fact Nigeria government committed a sacrilege against America.
Dear America government, it has not also gone unnoticed that the greedy and cynical politicians from Biafra land known as Ohaneze Ndigbo, who are masquerading as Igbo-Biafran leaders whereas they are not at the control, command or representation of anybody in Biafra land. IPOB has in its possession evidences that these greedy worn out politicians and present political office holders such as governors and senators are lobbying from place to place claiming that they want Biafrans to remain in political slavery, molestation, subjugation and humiliation in Nigeria against the wish of generality of Biafran populace. However, these politicians have never organize any town hall meeting anywhere in Biafra land to discuss the lingering issue of Biafra agitation since it began,
Dear American government, there is nothing that Biafrans will accept now that is not Biafra restoration through a peaceful referendum. Biafrans are not calling for the useless ruse of the moment called RESTRUCTURING of NIGERIA. What Biafrans want is outright exit from Nigeria which it is only referendum will decide the true desire of Biafrans. As American government is going to discuss with IPOB delegates, Biafrans expects nothing from White House than convincing Aso Rock to organize a referendum for Biafra once and for all.
