Igbo Seek Social Media Usage Regulation Over Hate-Speeches

The President-General of Igbo Community in Kaduna and Vice President of Igbo Delegate Assembly for the 19 Northern States, Mr. Chris Nnoli, has called on government to regulate social media usage in the country. In an interview, he attributed all sort of hate-speeches, including the anti-Igbo song recently in circulation, to non-regulation of social media by the government. He noted that social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter, among others, are instrumental to promoting chaos across the country. “Nigeria, as a country, is sitting on a keg of gun-powder, which explosion could be very disastrous if nothing is done about hate-speeches circulating on social media,” he said.

Ijaw Youths Warn Kanu, Others, Insist They’re Not Biafrans

Ijaw youths have warned pro-Biafran groups such as the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra and the Indigenous People of Biafra to desist from including Ijaw territories in the map of Biafra.

It stressed that the Ijaw people had never been Biafrans, saying that the old Eastern Region was a political contraption that enslaved the Ijaw people. It added that the old Eastern Region was created by those who also orch...

Shelve Biafra, Negotiate For Nigeria’s Presidency – Abia APC Chief Tells Ndigbo

Chief Donatus Nwankpa, the Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abia, has advised pro-Biafra agitators to shelve their secession plan and negotiate to produce an Igbo president in the country. Nwankpa gave the advice in an interview with newsmen in Umuahia on Sunday. The APC chieftain stated that the agitation for a Biafra Republic is not a viable option for the Southeast zone of the country. “For the Biafran agitators, I think Ndigbo need two things: One is that they should try and produce a president of Nigeria. “They should try and work hard to see that a president comes from the Southeast.’’ Nwankpa said a president of Igbo extraction would make the ‘no victor, no vanquished’ declaration at the end of the 30-month Nigerian civil war more realistic. He, therefo...
