Customary Government of Biafra appoints Malaysian Envoy&Administrator, plus Attaches

The Customary Government of Indigenous People of Biafra has appointed an Envoy and Administrator for Malaysia.

The Customary Government also announced the appointment of two attaches who will be working with the Administrator in the South East Asian country.

According to a letter dated 19th August 2020, and addressed to the Malaysian Minister of Home Affairs, Mr Hamzah Zainudin, Dr Ray Ikechukwu Jacob has been appointed to manage the affairs of the Biafran people in the country.

The letter was signed by
Barrister Emeka John Chigozie Emekesiri, Chairman of the Governing Council 
Customary Government of Indigenous People of Biafra.

Dr Jacob it said, is a Research Fellow, Educationist, an ordained clergyman and a former staff of the University of Malaya (UM), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

It also introduced Mr Uchenna Kenechukwu Delavega Anyakora, a First Class graduate of Information Technology, from the University of New Castle, Malaysia as its Director of Security and Allied Matters (attache).

Mr Tochukwu Camillus Egbosi on his part, was also appointed as the Director of Trade & Socio-Political Affairs, of the Biafran people in Malaysia.

Egbosi is also a graduate of Computer Science & Cyber Security, Lincoln University, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. 

Barrister Emeka Emekesiri explained in the letter that the appointments became necessary, as most Nigerians in Malaysia are actually Biafrans, whose affairs can be better managed by the Envoy, who can assist the Malaysian Government in managing their internal affairs.

The Letter of Introduction further read; “We are the custodians of the Customary Government of Indigenous People of Biafra which oversees and manages the affairs of the remnants of the Biafrans who are scattered in all parts of the world on self-exile since after the war between Biafra and Nigeria in 1970. Following the collapse of the Republic of Biafra and the loss of her sovereignty, some of our people who could not endure the persecutions and humiliations we faced and still face in Nigeria went on self-exile to foreign countries.

“Others who could not escape the ordeals remained in their homeland and were granted the Nigerian citizenship and permitted to practise their Customary Law pursuant to the provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“Thus, we are Nigerians by citizenship and subject to the Nigerian law but Biafrans by indigenous identity and practising our Customary Law under the Nigerian Legal System until we gain independence by due process of law. We are therefore a nation within a nation-state. 

“The Biafrans have migrated to all parts of the world in their great numbers. We can confirm that there is a large Biafran Community in Malaysia. Also, the Biafran Babies who were evacuated from the war and carried to various countries of the world to save them from starvation and death have now grown to large communities desiring to reconnect with their ancestral roots. 

“It is therefore with great pleasure that we introduce our Customary Government Envoy and Administrator in Malaysia”, it stated in part.

Recall that in July 2020, the Customary Government of Biafra also appointed an Envoy and Administrator for the Republic of South Africa.

Speaking on the legitimacy of the Project, Emekesiri expliened the very nature of the Customary Government both in national and international laws “Our Customary Government is a legitimate government which has made representations to some powerful nations of the world. Though the Customary Government is not yet sovereign, it is a recognised institution in both national and international law. It is an Institution designed to organise the Biafrans as a people seeking for independence. The IPOB Customary Government Agency is registered with the UN for international relations. I did not create Customary Law. The only thing I created was how to apply Customary Law as an existing law protected by the Nigerian Constitution to pursue the right to self-determination”, he concluded.

It’s true, we have over 50 Biafrans in various political positions across Biafra region-MOBIN DG

By Ámáka Ani, Dunukofia Anambra State

The Director General of the Movement of Biafrans in Nigeria, Madam Rita Anigbogu has revealed that, following the successful activities of the Movement between 2017 and 2019, over 50 Biafrans are currently holding political positions and appointments, in different governments.

According to her, “Over 50 Biafrans are holding political appointments of which am one of them. All these appointments came as a result of my involvement in Anambra election 2017. We got recognition after what we did in Anambra State Election 2017 and in 2019 ”.

Mrs Anigbogu who made this declaration during an interview with MOBIN MEDIA Correspondent at the reinuguration of Dunukofia Local Government Chapter in Ukpo, Anambra State, asked all Biafrans at home and in diaspora to come out in their large numbers come 2021 Anambra State elections and participate.

In her words, “If we say we are not interested in politics our head of state, President Muhamadu Buhari can just appoint one Gen. Abubakar as Military Administrator of the state and there is nothing anyone can do about.” she said.

BREAKING: Join politics now, and take over political control of our territory, CG-IPOB Legal Adviser charges Biafrans

By ONUKWUBE OFOELUE, DIRECTOR/EDITOR – IN-CHIEF, MOBIN MEDIA

The Legal Adviser for the Supreme Council of Elders of the Indigenous People of Biafra, founder and chairman of the Movement of Biafrans in Nigeria, Barrister Emeka Emekesiri has charged Biafrans at home and in the diaspora to join Nigerian politics, and to take over political control of the Biafra Indigenous region.

Emekesiri said this in his Inaugural Speech at the Reinauguration Ceremony of Dunukofia Local Government Area on Saturday, 8th August 2020.

Addressing Biafrans while being represented by Rita Anigbogu, MOBIN DG, in the speech titled “BIAFRANS TO TAKE OVER POWER AND OCCUPY ANAMBRA STATE HOUSE IN 2021“, he said:

“The Biafrans are the people colonised and oppressed in their own land. We are oppressed by the politicians ruling over us. They are imposed upon us by our opponents to whom they render accounts as their godfathers in the Nigerian politics.

“MOBIN is facing some challenges posed by some Biafran activists who are opposed to the Nigerian law and politics. One group is still preaching that the Biafrans should boycott the elections so that the UN would conduct a referendum and declare the Biafra Independence while another is preaching that Biafrans should not participate in the Nigerian politics because the Nigerian Constitution is fraudulent. We think that they are confused.

“Although MOBIN accepts that the Nigerian Constitution is fraudulent, we know the rule of law that every law or order of the Court remains valid until repealed or set aside. The fraudulent Nigerian Constitution remains valid until set aside. If we boycott the election, President Buhari can exercise his powers of emergency rule under the same fraudulent Constitution and impose a Military Administrator on Anambra State. We must not allow any part of Biafraland to be put under the Military Rule.

“The challenges have made MOBIN to increase the tempo of its works in both national and international arena. We have established the MOBIN MEDIA and set up online broadcasts every week to disseminate information and create political awareness. There is much work to be done. We have come today to empower the Dunukofia Chapter of MOBIN with knowledge and political wisdom to install a Biafran activist as the Governor of Anambra State in 2021. We shall strengthen the MOBIN structures in all the 21 Local Government Areas of Anambra State starting with Dunukofia and ensure that a Biafran takes over the State House in 2021.

“As far as the Biafran Independence is concerned, the eyes of the world are now upon MOBIN because they know that politics is the answer. MOBIN believes that the Biafrans must secure and control their political territory first and have the balance of power to negotiate with the Federal Government of Nigeria. Some call it Restructuring but we call it Devolution of Power to the Regions. Under the Nigerian law, the members of the Parliament represent their people and whatever they pass into law becomes binding.

“MOBIN wants to start by creating Biafra within Nigeria just like Scotland within Britain. This is the next stage before outright independence. It is our Regional Parliament that will pass the Bill of Referendum into law for the Biafrans to vote and decide whether they want outright independence or to remain as a self-governing region in Nigeria. Our roadmap is very clear and not false propaganda!”, Emekesiri affirmed.

Dunukofia becomes first chapter of MOBIN to be reinaugurated for Anambra Elections 2021

By Amaka Ani, Dunukofia Anambra State

The Dunukofia Local Government Area chapter of MOBIN played host to the Directors of the organisation on Saturday, 8th August, when the chapter was reinaugurated for political activities.

With this, Dunukofia becomes the first chapter to receive the Directors, who were led by Comrade Rita Anigbogu, the MOBIN Director General.

Speaking at the ceremony, which saw the local government chapter executive being sworn in, the chairman of MOBIN, Barr Emeka Emekesiri noted that although the struggle for Biafra freedom has been on, Biafrans have always taken a wrong approach to it, hence the reason their goals have always seemed evasive. He said MOBIN has come to chart the way forward, via politics.

He spoke through Comrade Anigbogu, who represented him:

Hear him “The Biafran struggle for self-determination started many years ago but the pioneers made some mistakes when they said that they were not Nigerians and would not participate in the Nigerian law, politics, and census. They did not understand the difference between nationality or citizenship and indigenous identity of the people living in the country. Thus, in 2006, the pioneers of the struggle stopped the Biafrans from being enumerated in the national census which resulted in the South East region becoming the minority region in the Nigerian demographic record today.

“It was observed that the pioneers were often in confrontation with the Nigerian Authorities, the police and the army, leading to loss of many lives. While the Biafran agitators were vehemently opposed to participation in the Nigerian politics and abhorred everything called “Nigerian”, the Nigerian Authorities also vehemently opposed and abhorred everything called “Biafran” as though it was a crime to be called a Biafran. Obviously, both sides were in error. They lacked knowledge that a person does not lose his indigenous identity by becoming a citizen of the sovereign country where he lives.

“We have noted that although many Biafrans are well educated in arts, science and technology, many still lack political education and awareness. MOBIN has come to open the eyes of the political illiterates in our land who are deceived by false propagandists and charlatans running Biafra Business empires for their selfish aggrandisements. We have come to bring peace and stability in the society. We have come to educate the masses, both Biafrans and Nigerians. The Biafrans are Nigerians by citizenship until they gain independence from Nigeria just as the Scottish people are British by citizenship but now struggling for independence from Britain. Therefore, we have the right to participate in the Nigerian affairs as Nigerian citizens.

“The vision and mission of MOBIN are very clear. MOBIN is leading the Biafrans to self-determination by the rule of law and political diplomacy starting with REGIONAL AUTONOMY. We want the country to be restructured into Regional Governments so that every region will govern itself and develop at its own pace, control its resources, provide security to its territory and pay an agreed percentage tax to the Federal Government”, the Barrister elucidated in the speech.

Movement of Biafrans in Nigeria begin reinauguration of Chapters across Biafraland

By Amaka Ani, Dunukofia Anambra State

The Movement of Biafrans in Nigeria (MOBIN) has resumed the inauguration of its chapters in the Biafran states of Nigeria.

According to information from the Chairman, Barrister Emeka Emekesiri who delivered a speech at the maiden reinauguration at Dunukofia Anambra State, only true Biafrans will take charge of political offices from now henceforth in Biafraland.

Spesking through the Director General of MOBIN, Rita Eberechukwu Anigbogu who represented him, Emekesiri said:

“We are here again in Dunukofia Local Government Area of Anambra State to strengthen our political structures to do it again better than we did in 2017.

“Our mission is to put Biafrans in power in the whole of Biafraland. We can no longer allow our political opponents from the North or West to install their stooges and errand boys in Biafraland to rule over us for the benefit of their slave masters.

“We have resolved that a Biafran activist must occupy the Anambra State Government House in 2021”.

ANAMBRA 2021: Movement of Biafrans in Nigeria begins re-inauguration/re-orientation of Chapters in Anambra

The political wing of the Biafran struggle, Movement of Biafrans in Nigeria (MOBIN) has announced plans to begin the re-inauguration and re-orientation of its chapters across the 21 local government areas in Anambra State.

MOBIN said the move is in line with its plans to educate, persuade and get Biafrans to run for political offices, win elections, and take charge of the Biafran territory politically.

Speaking to MOBIN MEDIA over the weekend, Director General of the political organization, Comrade Rita Anigbogu said that MOBIN’s mandate in Anambra State is to alert Biafrans of the dangers of having non-Biafrans in power, educate them on the importance of partisan politics, persuade them to join politics, mobilize the teeming millions, and ensure that they win in the elections.

She argued that with the growing growing lack of responsible leadership in Nigeria, it has become imperative for the different nationalities to take their destinies into their own hands and chart their future themselves.

She also said “We are not INAUGURATING, we are RE-INAUGURATING our MOBIN chapters in all the local governments and political wards in Anambra state.  We know what MOBIN stands for, you know our vision and mission. 

“We are Biafra politicians and we are not joking when we say that Biafra activists will take over the political space of Biafra land.

“We were in Anambra 2017 and we are getting ready for Anambra 2021. We are re inaugurating to start reinforcing our structures in all the local governments areas and wards in Anambra state, starting with Dunukofia Local Government Area.

“We want to gather the Biafrans especially those who believe that although they are Biafra indigenes, they are also Nigeria citizens. Those who say that as long as they are still in Nigeria that they will participate in everything happening in Nigeria till Biafra eventually regain its lost sovereignty after the 1969-70 war.

“We are different, we are reinaugurating to start getting our PVC together. Our PVC is our own AK47 and we will use it to decide who will go for us as long as the politics of Anambra is concerned. At the expiration of the reinauguration, we can authoritatively tell you how many MOBIN members that we have in Anambra state and whether we can drive home our insistence of deciding who goes to Agu Awka as the governor and those who will be in the house of Assembly”, Anigbogu declared.
