  1. : BIAFRA, NNAMDI KANU IS NOT THE PROBLEM BUT KARMA CATCHING UP WITH NIGERIA [Nigeria cannot be funding and campaigning for self-determination of both Palestinian and Western Sahara hoping that Israel and Morocco will be cooking Indomie and egg for them.] By Festus Walter . When the street urchins won an election, APC, PMB, and Nigeria Muslims were busy gallivanting around the world, in UN general assembly meeting, calling supporting, promoting and funding the creation of a free state of Palestinian, and western Sahara, without consulting anybody. Even Nigerian ASUU president DR Isa Fagae and others were busy organizing campaign for free Western Sahara state, forgetting that they have the worst case in their back yard(Biafra state) ohhh! They thought that after promoting, campaigning and funding the independent Palestinian and Western Sahara, Israel and Morocco will clap for them and prepare indomie and egg for them. They too are now funding, supporting, sponsoring, campaigning calling for self-determination of both Palestinian Western Sahara and Biafra, they said Biafra case too should be treated equally. The UN, AU, ECOWAS treaties that Nigeria is a signatory to allow self-determination through a referendum. When ECOWAS court wants to use that to rule in favor of Nnamdi Kanu, Nigeria threatened to evict and stop funding ECOWAS, Morocco decided to leave North Africa and apply for ECOWAS member so he can accommodate and fund ECOWAS with Israel if Nigeria government do otherwise. ECOWAS cannot be abandoned their treaties because of Nigeria, Nigeria accepted to release Nnamdi Kanu to avoid ECOWAS doing that by ruling in favor of Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB, but vowed never to allow a referendum. Why do you think Morocco’s application to join ECOWAS was accepted by ECOWAS head of state last two week? Why do you think all ECOWAS countries are supporting Biafra except president Baro of the Gambia? , why do you think Israeli Prime Minister visited ECOWAS head of state in their last meeting. Why do you think Nigeria and the Gambia boycotted the meeting for the first time since the history of ECOWAS. OBJ went there on his own to beg. Why do you think OBJ advised FG to beg agitators at Yaradua center. Look ignorance of APC and PMB, their unpreparedness for power, and injustice in Nigeria is what is destroying Nigeria today not Nnamdi Kanu or IPOB. The UN General Assembly meeting is in August, what do we expect? A declaration of self-determination and referendum for Palestinian, Western Sahara, Catalonia, and Biafra, or maintaining status quo till next 5 yrs? There is pressure on Nigeria from Islamic world led by Saudi, Palestinian people, Western Sahara people to let Biafra go so they too can have freedom. Even Turkish is mounting pressure. So you can see there is little of what Nigeria government, police, the army can do about this matter now, that why they can no longer keep Nnamdi Kanu on detention, he cannot be rearrested again, IPOB members can no longer be arrested, soldiers are no longer shooting.\ The only solution now is, meeting and meeting, consulting, consulting, begging begging begging and begging, and that is what osinbanjo is doing, but I think he should listen to OBJ and call Nnamdi Kanu and beg him, talk to him. Ask him what he wants because with PMB 97% and 5% statement on Aljazeera interview and his lopsided appointments and hatred for Biafrans by some Nigerians, are making the Osinbanjo move impossible. Look, education and exposure are so important in choosing a leader, see the big problem PMB created for Nigeria, and he is not here to quench it. When OBJ advised ignoring Nnamdi Kanu and his Radio Biafra the way he ignored Sharia Law, PMB threatened to crush him. The same way he threatened to crush militant. What is coming is bigger than Nigeria. Now you know why Nnamdi Kanu is still talking tough. Now you know why Israel RABBI have to sign his bail, if anything happened to him, we are in UN AU Morocco and Israel mess. Our attitude on Facebook is not helping the matter, today Osinbanjo is having a meeting with media editors. Nigerians, this may be the end…!!! 2 hrs · RADIO BIAFRA LOND…
