IGBO: Open Letter To Buhari

IGBO: Open Letter To Buhari

After a long thought I have decided to reply president Buhari on his war threat to the Igbo

Dear Mr President
Your Excellency PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI President Muhammadu Buhari Support Group
Sir,
Thank you for your speech for which we all waited with bated breaths

Thank you for promising to work on the present situation of volatile insecurity in Nigeria.

Mr President Sir
I must remind you, that you cannot put out fire with fire.

Your administration has rehabilitated unrepentant terrorist, has paid monies out to kidnappers, has protected rampaging herdsmen even as they sack villages burning, looting and raping innocent women.

BUT

When South East Nigeria requests a referendum, when they complain they feel excluded from opportunities in Nigeria to mention just a few grievances, there is no negotiation, no rehabilitation, no communication.

We were hoping that your speech would call for calm, would call for a discourse, would extend an olive branch after which, all options would be on the table.

We have instead seen fighter planes over Akwa Ibom,( what did we do and how come we are always collateral casualties of war damage), armored tankers rolling into the East

Misguided young men and women slaughtered in droves, not by bandits nor terrorists, but by the army of the nation to which they pledge allegiance.

Open Letter To Buhari

As if that was not enough
Your speech threatens to visit onto the children the carnage Nigeria visited on the fathers
Your speech reopens wounds that were buried in emotional shallow graves and banal declarations of “no victor no vanquished”

At this point Mr President Sir, it seems your administration has no solid plans of integration nor considerations for the Igbos, it is also clear you would not choose secession, rather than a repeat of the massacre of 3 million South East Nigerians ( the biggest genocide after the Jews ).

I would suggest to do all in your power to maintain the peace and let Igbos live to engage in a referendum with subsequent governments who will hopefully be able to marshal that process.

The world is watching. There is already the ENDSARS debacle, a stain on your government, don’t add the massacre of the Igbos as another stain.

There is such a thing as the ICC and war criminals from the Nazi era are still being persecuted.

Our every year young Mr President will have no immunity against war crimes trail if so declared.

I dare say your lieutenants do not have the spine to give an honest situation report.

You will get a better feel of the situation from even social media which does a better job than those around you.

They are more or less sycophants more interested in telling you what they think you want to hear, than the truth of the matter.

If our security forces are stretched thin, hire mercenaries to immediately provide security against ALL criminals from NORTH TO SOUTHERN Nigeria.

Open Letter To Buhari

I’m so certain General Idiagbon of blessed memory would have also gone after not only criminals in the bush but also those in office who subvert progress by openly or covertly dealing with criminal elements but that is the story of another day.

In the remaining 2 years of your regime,
Try to ensure peace
Try to ensure free and fair elections
Stop the ongoing carnage in South East Nigeria
Thank you for your efforts so far but I remind you again
You must not fight fire with fire.

Open Letter To Buhari

STOP THE KILLINGS !
STOP THE KILLINGS !
STOP THE KILLINGS !

Thank you for listening

Obiha Samuel is my name.
