This piece was written 2 years ago by one Mr. Obafemi Gbenga, on the Facebook page of the African Independent Television (AIT), on Saturday, 8th of July, 2017 and picked by Naijawatchdog for memory purposes.
In the piece, Gbenga compared the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB), to Nelson Mandela of South Africa and Thomas Sankara, the charismatic president of Burkina Faso who saved and served their countries in different ways.
The Piece in Details:
My fellow country men, I think it is high time we stop underestimating this man Kanu, it is crystal clear that he (Kanu) controls the entire East except we want to live in denial, we should understand the implications of neglecting southeast position.
However, I do not think a referendum is too much a request from the igbos at this critical time.
So, I advice the federal government to call the various agitating groups to a round table talk.
If they insist on leaving Nigeria so be it, there is no need politicking with people’s lives wthout a recourse to its after effect.
But to think Nnamdi Kanu is not a leader but those by chance politicians is like playing with the truth.
Mr kanu’s balls must be thesize of a water tank, his authority is reaching high heavens.
He does not mince words nor speak in parables, his words are as plain as the day and their meanings lay bare for everyone to grasp.
Kanu will be ranked in the class of Nelson Mandela(South Africa) and Thomas Sankara(Burkina Faso), if he can successfully lead Nigeria out of this Unitary mess.
I’m a core Yoruba, if you come for my head, I will go for your throat.
