THE AUTHOR’S OPINION
As a youth, I have only come to know this name called (oha-n’eze ndigbo) two years ago. One will marvel at this statement; of course it’s true. Oha N’eze group is deceptive nature . I owe them no apology, because they worth no good. They have claimed that they are representing the Igbo speaking Biafrans , this is a fat lie which I have come to talk about . This is because I want to exonerate my people from their pang of deceit.
However, there are pertinent questions Igbo/Biafran should have taken into cognisance, such as;
1. Who are Oha N’eze and who are Ndigbo?
2. Who and who is behind this group?
3. Who do they represent?
4. Who chose or elected them into office?
5. What have they achieved since the creation of Nigeria?
Firstly, let’s discuss briefly but with spark points on the first question, Who is Oha N’eze and who is Ndigbo? The word Oha n’eze simply means the people and the king. In other words, by way of explanation , you find out that every Igbo speaking Biafran is entitled to be known, recognised and respected under this umbrella called “OHA N’EZE”. Who are Ndigbo? These are the Igbo speaking Biafrans, that is , any one speaking Igbo is Ndigbo/Onyeigbo. Hence , Oha n’eze ndigbo are those who have identified themselves to be speakers of Igbo language. This group is said to have leaders.
I want to make it noteworthy that Biafrans are not aware of these leaders talked about , this is because before this kind of organization is made there is suppose to be a unanimous agreement within the Igbo speaking Biafrans to have such a group and as well as elect leaders who will oversee the running of the group for them if need be. Thus , as an Igbo speaking Biafran, automatically, I am suppose to be under this umbrella, opinions of the Indigenous People that make up this organization is suppose to be the yardstick upon which any agreement is made, hence their voices are suppose to be heard
Secondly, who and who is behind this group? As claimed, this group was created after the ban of (INA) Igbo National Assembly by the federal government in the year 1976 as piloted by the then Professor Nwabueze Ben. The sole aim was to see to the political voodoo, problems of Ndi Igbo both home and dispora. Since 1976 till date, there have been series of change in power within the group. Now, they are claiming to be for the igbo speaking Biafra, who do not have any knowledge of their activities. They claimed they represent a people who never chose nor elected them into office. They claim to represent people whose opinions is not taken in consideration in the rulership system. Well, from the look of things, it is quite unfortunate that those they claimed to represent have refused to ask questions. This is a group created by the Nigerian government; with the aim of manipulating us through it to milk us dry. They impose upon us, criminally minded people, to devour our resources.
Who do they represent? Before I was able to answer this question, I made enquiries Why is it so? Because these people only exist in media platforms. They only represent their families and pockets, From what i am able to gather based on the enquiry I made, it is said that they (Ohaneze Ndigbo) claim to be representing five states with additional indigenous communities in Rivers and Delta states. Meanwhile, they have done nothing meaningful for these people they claim to be representing. Isn’t this lies from pit of hell?
Consequently, if this group should have taken the bold step of doing the right thing, I am entitled to make my choice who leads me through voting . It is wrong, for some group or cabals to meet together and appoint themselves as leaders. Worst on, they make up the bad leaders of them all. As if it’s not enough, they try restraining Biafrans to their God given rights. This is one of the reasons, Biafrans should disown them. We are being marginalized, subjugated and killed in great numbers yet they have failed to address these issues. These are people that called themselves leaders; but i call them leaders of doom !
