My thought on Ohaneze fighting for Biafra course

If Ohaneze feels it is fighting for Igbo course it should first of all
try to recover all Igbo territories ceded to other regions in Nigeria.
Are you aware that sometime in 1939 some Anioma communities
in present day Delta and Edo states was carved out of the core
Igbo heartland despite protests from Anioma kings then to the
British colonial authorities?
The same period the Ezza community of present Ebonyi state was
carved into Benue state of present day.
Again, in 1976 during the Yakubu Gowon regime, Ahoada and Port
Harcourt was ceded to Ijaw dominated River state. Do you still
wonder how Igbo speaking people are now minorities in other
states?
This was carried out despite rejection by the people to the Willink
commission on boundary adjustment.
Still in 1976, oil rich Obigbo LGA in Aba division of old Imo state
was ceded to Rivers state. Obigbo is Ndoki clan and has over 50
oil wells, they are pure Igbo people separated from their Azummili
kins by the Imo river.
Ohugbu, an oil rich Ndoki community was ceded to Akwa Ibom
state. Ohugbu is one of the highest onshore gas and oil producing
area.
In the same 1976, the Egbema community was balkanized into
three towns with the highest oil producing town ceded to River
state from old Imo state.
Same time too, Ndoni was carved out of Aboha and given to Rivers
state. Ndoni and Ogbaru are same people. Ogbaru is in Anambra
with some of their kinsmen in Delta state.
We know that these oil producing areas of Igbo land was the
highest oil producing areas pre 1966 and that the Hausa/Fulani led
military government has partitioned our land in other to remove
Igbo land as the highest oil producing region in the land.
The envious Hausa/Fulani government acted contemptuously in
other to gain control of our oil and soon after these sordid act, they
started sharing our oil wells to themselves hence, today they
control almost eighty two of such.
This is where I expect Ohaneze to act. They should do all within
their ability to recover all our lands dubiously ceded to other
regions.
Only then can we see them as true representatives of our people.

Can the south east (Igbo speaking tribe) produce the next Nigerian President come 2023?
