Enugu State. My state. My home. Igboland. My fatherland. It was Peter Obi who buried APC in Igbo land when he claimed that Fashola deported Igbos. He went on air, sensationalized it. Good job. Igbo youths lapped on it. Jonathan and PDP were all smiles and Obi was hailed for a job well done. He quickly joined the party on leaving office as was planned out. APGA, the alleged Igbo party was dumped and left to crumble. Ojukwu had died. The new Igbo party was PDP. The plan was going well. Jonathan would win election and our brothers would continue chopping on our behalf. The Grand plan was for 2017. Oil blocks allocations would expire in 2017 and there would be fresh allocations. Boys were positioning themselves for the greatest cake. Dasuki released 500m to Jim for Igbo elders.
They did a perfect job. In churches Buhari was branded antichrist and anti-Christians whose ambitions were to islamize the east and persecute Christians. Prayer points were raised and brethren fasted against his emergence. Jonathan was sent by God and only his emergence would save the church. Brethren spoke in tongue and prophesied. Anyone who ever prophesied anything contrary to Jonathan winning was branded antichrist and anti-Igbo. Jonathan was Igbo, our brother. Ndi Hausa hate us so much. Buhari wrote Ohaneze severally to pay them a visit. No one as much as acknowledged his letter not to talk of inviting him. What’s the point? Our son is running and he’s gonna win anyways. APC was outcast and taboo in the land. At the election the elders dutifully allocated 500,000 votes to Jonathan, maybe at 1000naira per vote. And 15,000 votes to Buhari. This was Igbo project remember. By 2017 Igbo sons would own oil blocks on our behalf. All seemed to be going well. Except that men without ears didn’t think that God had the final say. Suddenly, like the great titanic, everything went wrong! Our brother didn’t win after all! Wow. What next? They started shouting persecution. Ana emegbu ndi igbo.
Me: it will take some years for the SE and by extension the church to wake up from this hate induced delusion. Peter Obi didn’t this alone.
