I Am IgboToo Trends As Nigerians React To Buhari’s Threat

Published

on

 

Some Nigerians on Twitter are trending the #IamIgboToo hashtag to express their solidarity with the people of South-East, Nigeria, a day after a threat was issued against the region.

On Tuesday during a meeting with the Independent National Electoral Commission, the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) on how the burning of INEC offices may cause a constitutional dilemma ahead of the 2023 elections.

Buhari said, “Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War. Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand.”

Already, Buhari’s statement had been met with outrage on social media and the #IamIgboToo hashtag takes it a step further.

Rapper, MI Abaga via his verified Twitter handle said, “If you have an Igbo friend.. please post a message of solidarity using the hashtag #ozoemena #IamIgboToo and share online!
Let love defeat hate!!”

A popular Twitter user, Sally Suleiman tweeted, “I love my Igbo friends
I support Igbo people. Thanks to the Igbos for their contribution to our Economy. We hear you loud and clear, and we would always support you. Igbo Amaka #IamIgboToo.”

Former presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba tweeted, “The President is working against the Terrorist IPOB, not the Igbo. I believe the President, as all Nigerians do, loves the Igbo. There is no better way to be #IamIgbotoo than to liberate the region of the menace of the IPOB killers and arsonists, that have imprisoned the Igbo.”

EKWUNIFE FACILITATES BUSINESS GRANTS FOR 1000 BENEFICIARIES

Over 1000 beneficiaries have been credited in another batch of intervention funds cash transfers facilitated by the Senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial District, Uche Ekwunife as part of her continuous efforts to empower the people of the constituency and assist them in their businesses.

The cash transfers began to drop on the bank accounts of the beneficiaries who had applied at the constituency office on Friday, June 18, 2021. We therefore use this opportunity to urge constituents who had applied for intervention funds from the office to always check their phones regularly for acceptance messages, and subsequently expect the receipt of funds. Those who have taken delivery of the funds should report to the office for documentation and further assistance.

Constituents are at liberty to visit the Intervention Funds and Benefits Department of the Liaison Office, located at Senator Uche Ekwunife Centre, Opposite Udoka Housing Estate Awka to provide details which would assist the office in facilitating the various Federal Government’s intervention funds/benefits for them.

Senator Ekwunife’s resolve to ameliorate the sufferings of the people by offering a representation that is visible, impactful and purposeful remains unflinching. More beneficiaries are expected to be captured in the ongoing programme in the coming weeks.

Felix Nwezi,
Director, Intervention Funds and Benefits Department Anambra Central Liaison Office.

Boko Haram Gets New Commanders

Published

on

Nigeria’s Boko Haram jihadist group has confirmed the death of its chief Abubakar Shekau, who sources say died during infighting with a rival Islamic State-allied faction, according to a video message from its presumed new commander.

In the short video in Arabic, top Boko Haram commander Bakura Modu, also known as Sahaba, urged his faction’s commanders to remain loyal despite the loss of their historic commander.

Shekau’s death was seen a major shift in Nigeria’s conflict, though Islamic State in West Africa Province or ISWAP has recently emerged as the dominant force in the more than decade-long Islamist insurgency in the country’s northeast.

The video, provided to AFP by a source close to Boko Haram and confirmed to be Bakura Modu by another local source, illustrates that jihadist infighting is far from over in Africa’s most populous nation.

Shekau, who gained notoriety after kidnapping nearly 300 schoolgirls in 2014, killed himself last month rather than surrender after IS-allied rivals attacked his base camp in Nigeria’s northeast Borno state, security sources said.
