What happened to my good friend and brother Senator Ike Ekweremadu in Nuremberg, Germany by the hands of an IPOB and a transparent signal to each political chief in southern Nigeria! The individuals of the south are getting indignant and you both get up and defend them or stand apart!
It takes Braveness to stand for those which were unjustly killed in Nigeria. It takes Braveness to say "no" and get up towards injustice in a jungle. It takes Courage to determine and empathize with the Enslaved, the oppressed, the poor, the weak, and the weak in a Killing area and useful zoo.
Yet we should all do or cease laying claim to being referred to as leaders. When your individuals and Kinsmen are became nugatory slaves with little hope for the longer term and when they are slaughtered like flies just because they’re southerners and Center Belters or due to their religion and also you say and do subsequent to nothing then someplace along the line a worth needs to be paid.
What occurred in Nuremberg Yesterday marks the start of an awakening. Each southern politician, including yours really, might be referred to as to account to the individuals of the south about what she or he did to stop the genocide and ethnic cleaning of the southerners in Buhari's Nigeria.
If anyone believes it is just IPOB or the individuals of the south-east that really feel so bitter then they actually dont know what is going on. The little kids of the Niger Delta, the South-South and the South-West are equally aggrieved. The anger is palpable and it’s spreading throughout the south.
As each day passes to these of us like Ike Ekweremadu, you could have referred to as for Endurance and restraint are being seen as traitors and sell-outs by our personal people who demand a far more candid, courageous, proactive, dynamic, trustworthy, protecting and inspirational type of management.
Solely God is aware of how much longer these of us which might be moderated and that consider in non-violent and passive resistance can hold the line. Our individuals are boiling and they’re about to kindle a fireplace which will eat us all if one thing is just not carried out to appease them and give them hope.
I call on President Muhammadu Buhari to shed his cloak of partiality, to put Nigeria before his Fulani Tribe, to cease the genocide, mass Homicide and ethnic cleansing, to remove the Fulani herdsmen from the south and the Middle Belt, to proclaim Miyetti Allah and the Fulani militants, to declare them as Terrorists and Enemies of the Nigerian State and shield the lives of EVERY Nigerians from this great Evil that has tormented our individuals and torn us apart.
The fact that Ekweremadu wore a shirt that was coated with the Nigerian Coat of Arms and that it was torn to shred by people who attacked him is instructive. It might additionally prove to be a Prophetic.
I say this as a result of the assertion that Nigeria must and will remain one of the humiliation, persecution, marginalization, subjugation, barbarity, wickedness and torment that the south has been subjected to during the last 59 years and particularly during the last 4 years that consider that they have been born to rule is, at greatest, misplaced and naive and at worse, shallow and asinine.

How can Nigeria remain one when, for the better a part of the previous few years and as much as one month ago, each single branch of the three tiers of the Federal Courts, specifically the Supreme Courtroom, the Courtroom of Attraction and the Federal High Courtroom, have been headed by northern Muslims?
For the report, one month ago a Christian from the Center Belt took over at the Federal High Courtroom and that helped to stability the equation but the level remains valid.
How can Nigeria stay one of many first and fourth most dangerous terrorist organizations on the earth specifically Boko Haram and the Fulani mil itants, are wreaking havoc and committing probably the most heinous and barbaric atrocities throughout Nigeria with the help and help of ISIS?
Worse still the Fulani militants have made a sport of concentrating on and killing the southeners and the Middle Belters and occupying their land with the tacit help of the Government who have refused to name them Terrorists or to arrest, prosecute and convey them to justice?
How can Nigeria remain one when it is clear that a policy of Fulanization and Islamization is being carried out very eyes?

How can Nigeria remain one when the Coalition of Northern Groups, with the backing and help of the Northern Elders Discussion board, brazenly and publicly threaten the l Ives Of Southerners That Stay In The North And Give Them Ultimatums To Depart And Persistently Threatened To Target Southerners If RUGA Is Not Carried out In The South?
How can Nigeria stay one when Miyetti Allah appears to be above the regulation and when the Fulani herdsmen are allowed to carry arms and look like untouchable?

How can Nigeria stay one when southerners and Center Belters are handled like a scum and are seen as nothing but slaves and, at greatest , second class citizens in their very own nation?
How can Nigeria remain one when Mr. Omoyele Sowore is kidnapped from his house in the midst of the night time like a standard legal, dumped in a DSS cell, handled like a terrorist, detained fo ra minimum of 45 days and can be charged for treason or treasonable felony simply because they needed to arrange a peaceable demonstration towards the reckless, inept, incompetent and dangerous insurance policies of the Buhari authorities?

How can Nigeria remain one when Fulani nationalism and supremacy are engendered and initiated by the Buhari administration whereas the ethnic nationalism of the Yoruba, Igbo, Ijaw, Tiv and different indigenous tribes from the South and the Center Belt are frowned upon, outlawed and treated as a criminal offense?
Given all this, it isn’t shocking that when those attacked Ekwerem adu noticed him sporting a shirt with a Nigerian coat of arms emblazoned throughout it at an Igbo yam pageant in distant Germany they merely misplaced control of themselves, allowed their Fury to take over and tore it to shreds. I don’t seek to justify or condone their conduct and I don’t help it: I solely seek to elucidate it.
They’re in ache and that’s became a palpable and harmful rage.
These of us that lay declare to being southern leaders would do nicely to recognize that reality, accept it and resolve to rise as much as the challenges that our individuals are dealing with.
The bitter fact is that of the Nigerian Coat of Arms and the Nigerian flag itself, to a sizeable variety of individuals from the South has now develop into a logo of Tyranny, Terror, subjugation and oppression.
As unpleasant and distasteful as this can be and as troublesome as it’s to simply accept, the ugly occasions at Nuremberg have proved it.
The most important miscalculation that the President might probably make is to consider that this matter could be contained or that it’ll go away with time. The more the Killings, the larger the build-up of anger and the larger the prospect that issues will soon explode.
We Should Do All We Can Cease This And To Restore Love, Peace, Equity, Justice, Trust and Mutual respect to our individuals and our land. That’s the solely method to ensure that what happened to Senator Ike Ekweremadu doesn’t happen to different southern leaders some time within the not too distant future.
We should all be prepared to stick our necks out for our individuals aggressively and vigorously as vital or if we fail to do so, we have to be ready to cross on the Baton and step apart for those that may.
Leadership requires danger and sacrifice. We, as southern leaders, have to be ready to take a brave stand and resolve to do both. We should do no matter it takes and whatever is important to guard the lives and property of our individuals, to defend their honor and dignity and to protect their future.
This can be a obligation and obligation that we must pledge to uphold and a Covenant that we must make before the Dwelling God. I wish my pal and brother Senator Ike Ekweremadu a speedy recovery from the Unfortunate events in Nuremberg, Germany.
