There is a serious frustration in Nigeria in general and Arewa people in particular at the moment as being demonstrated by the unprecedented media rantings of the leader of Arewa Youths, Yerima Shettima. As it is, I cannot be expecting an almajiri like Yerima Shettima to understand the importance of standing at one point instead of jumping from one declaration to the other because he is an obscure illiterate making noise up and down to justify the huge payment given to him by Nigeria government as to threaten IPOB to shift ground on their demand on Biafra restoration. It is unfortunate that this clueless almajiri who talks from both sides of his mouth without coordination should be the only thing that the entire Northern Nigeria can front as their Youth leader. What a shame! What a backwardness!!
No wonder that Nigeria federation which is lying in the hands of their cabals is still dwelling in 18 and 19 century lifestyles when other nations are moving forward. It is upon this ground that Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) want the world to ask these almajiris the following questions:
After considering these questions which it is only Arewa Youths can provide answers to, one can now come to understand that these gullible frustrated Arewa youths are only playing the script handed over to them by their sponsor which is Nigeria government. Arewa youths a.k.a rebranded Boko Haram thought that IPOB trembles at empty threats of unleashing terror to Biafrans in Northern Nigeria but to their greatest surprise, IPOB made them to know that it is a welcome development.
If these gullible Arewa youths want the world to see them as reasonable and serious, let them stop being pushed left and right by their secret sponsors because nobody can control IPOB against what they stood for since many years now which is RESTORATION of BIAFRA. IPOB is aware that the noise making of Arewa youths is borne out of their frustrations and that of their sponsors. If Arewa Youths deserves to be given attention, they should not be jumping from one declaration to the other. That is evidence that they lack ability to think before talking because of the fact that they are playing the script of their sponsors in their frustration.
Now we can see the type of senseless youths at the disposal of Northern Nigeria? Today, they want Biafrans to vacate North and tomorrow they are begging Biafrans to stay. Today, Nigeria is unworkable union for Arewa youths deserving dissolution, tomorrow Nigeria is a cherished entity that they love and want uphold. Today, Biafra agitation of IPOB is legitimate in the eyes of Arewa youths because it contained in relevant charters of United Nations and Africa Union, tomorrow they are hauling all manner of insults against Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB for standing on the demand of the provision of UN charter which same Arewa Youths cited. It is on this say this one today, and say another tomorrow that I hereby ask these three questions:
At first, people all over the world thought that Arewa people have upgraded as they were quoting these relevant conventions as they were calling for Biafra referendum but right now, nobody still take those rebranded terrorists serious because they jump from one declaration to the other. However, Biafran youths still want them to know that it is either Biafra restoration or nothing. Arewa youths should continue to make more declaration but that does make any meaning to IPOB. A word is enough for the wise!
