News Release: Ten Propaganda Orchestrated By The Lagos-Ibadan Media Against Biafra

Propaganda #1: Biafra is only about the Igbo-speaking people mainly in the unconstitutional Southeast geo-political zone of Nigeria.
There has been systematic pidgeon-holing of Biafra into Igbo by the Lagos-Ibadan media. In doing this, they implanted into the subconsciousness of both foreign and local observers that the quest for Biafra is an “Igbo thing.“ But they failed to inform their audience that the man who piloted the affairs of Biafra after General Odimegwu-Ojukwu travelled to Ivory Coast was not from the Igbo-speaking area of Biafra. The Lagos-Ibadan media intentionally failed to let the world know that, during the war of genocide on Biafra, there were high-ranking military and civilian Administrative Officers who were not from the Igbo-speaking area of Biafra working for their nation of Biafra. Fortunately, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) through the media arm – Radio Biafra London (RBL) – has exposed this lie being peddled by the  Lagos-Ibadan media. Now, the entire world has come to know that Biafra is not all about the Igbos. As a matter of fact, Igbo is only a language spoken by some people in Biafra. IPOB through RBL has proven beyond reasonable doubt that Biafra is a people and Igbo is just a language.

Article: Aisha Buhari Is The Icon Of The Moment

Aisha Buhari

By Edel-QuinnAgbaegbu

For over one week, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, Nigeria's reigning First Lady has been dominating the media space in Nigeria. Given the weight of what she said recently, which went viral on the internet, Mrs Buhari  words are now a quotable quote  in many public statements, articles and commentaries in the country. She must have also made wide impact globally, as the world is now a global village, thanks to online media and innovations in communication technology. By a mere expression of her view, against the modus operandi in the administration of a democratic government where her husband is the President and Commander-in-Chief, she stirred the honest nest. She is today seen by many as an icon of a sort.

News Release: Saving The Rule Of Law From The Brink In Nigeria

It is no longer hidden that President Muhammadu Buhari and his co-travellers in the country’s current state of toxaemia have fully resorted to political terrorism and barbarism in their so called “anti corruption crusade”. Hiding under the guise of “anti corruption” to perpetrate heinous State crimes such as treason, State murder and other forms of official terrorism, had been a recurring decimal in Nigeria; dating back to January 1966, during Nigeria’s first military coup. Major Gen Muhammadu Buhari (as he then was), used the same excuse to oust the democratically elected Presidency of Shehu Shagari on 31st December 1983.

Article: Nigeria’s Electoral Reform Stares At The Judiciary

By SKC Ogbonnia

The recent statement by the government of President Muhammadu Buhari to reform the Nigeria ’s electoral laws is in order. Any overture with a positive attribute is always welcome. Yet, some might argue, and plainly so, that the idea of electoral reform in the country is hardly novel and therefore far from the solution. After all, despite the fact that Buhari’s immediate predecessors made similar attempts that resulted to Electoral Acts of 2002, 2006, and 2010, the Nigerian experience with election matters has remained a travesty of sorts.
