A well-known social critic who has been identified as Sirwealthson Henry Chukwudi, founder and President General of the UPNI worldwide movement has identified some major weaknesses and limitations that have plagued the average Igbo man in Nigeria and all over the world.
Speaking in a voice note exclusively delivered to Africa Today News, New York, Sirwealthson declared that the Igbos have been downtrodden on and withheld for so long that they have failed to make good use of their full potentials. He also went ahead to outline most of these factors which he termed as: ‘Weaknesses of the Igbos’.
The first factor he pointed out was the phenomenon of religion, Christianity and how it has brainwashed the Igbos into completely losing focus. He claimed that a huge majority of Igbos now followed religion so blindly that some certain individuals have realised its importance and have come to use this notion against them to manipulate and coerce them thus exploiting their weakness.
The second factor he pinpointed was the notion of an independent secessionist state called Biafra. This, he claimed was another avenue which some individuals have commandeered and used to mine the Igbos of their hard-earned resources and their common sense thus enriching themselves and enslaving the Igbos the more.
Going further to explain how these individuals enrich themselves with the false Biafran propaganda, he detailed on how the current founder, leader of Biafran Independent Movement (BIM) and former leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MAASOB), Chief Ralph Uwazurike discovered the business of making money from the Biafran propaganda. He claimed that Uwazurike used this propaganda to brainwash and manipulate a lot of Igbos into donating their resources to him which in turn made him stinkingly rich.
Revealing further details, he talked about how Chief Ralph Uwazurike, seeking to break into international waters recruited the help of the current leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu for his wonderful oratory skills. The duo carried on with the business of deceit and fraud for some time till Nnmadi Kanu decided to set up his own shop and by doing this, he had to exterminate all competition. His major competition at the time was Chief Ralph Uwazurike and with the help of some dirty secrets, he managed to expose Uwazurike’s fraudulent activities while presenting himself as the saint and messiah. He also took control of some major assets belonging to the MASSOB organisation which he used to start up his own organisation which he called Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) are a well-known brainwashed set who believe that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is their supreme lord and saviour and that Biafra can only be realised through him. This is why they have taken to killing, destruction of properties and crimes to prove their allegiance to Nnamdi Kanu. Kanu on his own has realised how his zombie-like followers revere him and in turn, he has taken to siphoning them and defrauding them of their hard-earned resources. He uses his Jewish faith as a front for his very malicious ways while peddling false propaganda and lies to win more support and sympathy.
Sirwealthson also goes ahead to berate Nnamdi Kanu’s unguarded utterances and inciteful speeches which he uses to stir up unnecessary aggression among the Igbos especially the youths. He also opens up on the analysis of how many Igbo youths keep loosing their lives unnecessarily because of Nnamdi Kanu’s wicked motives.
Concluding, Sirwealthson goes ahead to detail out other better alternatives to Nnamdi Kanu’s fraudulent, crime-filled method of fighting for succession. He implores the Igbo community to shun Nnamdi Kanu’s methods and to ignore the activities of the outlawed IPOB organisation. He also asks that well-meaning individuals should stop giving out funds to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu whilst they agitate for the seccession of Igboland through the right means.
