 A Rejoinder: The Political Hatchet Job From A Non-existent Group Is Too Little, Too Late


The recent inaccurate, cheap blackmail and total lack of substance publication from one faceless, non-existent political group called BRAC (whatever that is?), through an equally unknown entity/coordinator called McDaniels is a total political hack designed, like a robot, for the sole purpose of spreading propaganda, lies and cleaning the image of any British poster boy such as Yakubu Gowon.

Frankly speaking, if not for the unsuspecting general public, replying the Nigerian Department of State Services(DSS) created group would have been as important as a used toilet paper whose only rightful place is to be flushed down the toilet.

It is the habit of every deplorable administration in Nigeria to always be open to a divide and conquer strategy. This is an old textbook strategy learnt from the psychopathic British colonial leadership.

While one is indeed amused by the current attempt to twist facts about the recent infamous but accurate statement from former Nigeria military ruler, Yakubu Gowon, it is equally tempting to ask, “when is Nigeria going to abandon the colonial and antiquated practice of divide and conquer?” It is imperative because the people can see through their game of division and, therefore, have moved on.

Now, the central theme of the attack on Yakubu Gowon is the fact that he refused to implement the agreement reached with General Ojukwu in Aburi, Ghana. However, according to this lying faceless group, the truth is that Gowon liberated the coastal aborigines. While the reference to coastal aborigines is a total political nut job, because there is no such thing since the states of Bayelsa, Rivers, Akwaibom and Cross river are homogeneous with Enugu, Imo, Anambra, Ebonyi, Abia and parts of Delta, Edo and Kogi states, the real question is, “how does refusing to implement a Peace Agreement that would have stopped a war translate to liberating a coastal aborigines?” 

Gowon could not have liberated a people that were never in bondage until he decided to levy war on them. The politically distorting comment of ending a war peacefully is highly offensive and a mockery to the memory of millions that Yakubu Gowon killed because of a combination of his hatred for them and the quest for power. Therefore, this derogatory comment is useful to the extent that he did not start a war. The fact and truth is that Gowon is a villain. He went to Aburi in Ghana to negotiate a truce with General Ojukwu, but refused to implement the agreement reached, which he signed. Instead, he chose to start a war of attrition and genocide. No amount of media laundry will expunge this fact even if he tenders an apology. The DSS use of many other politically created groups like this one will not change anything.

Recall that recently, during his failed visit to president Tinubu, Yakubu Gowon bragged about how he started the war that led to the death of millions of Biafrans and how he was criticized for being slow. He was referring to how Bola Tinubu administration is being vilified for being clueless to governance. That ignoble comment went viral on the internet and elicited criticism, and the demand for apology came from both local and international actors including the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
