Politics Of Oil: Igbos Want To Colonize S-South Because Of Oil-Sagir Mohammad

Alhaji Sagir Mohammad, holds the title Waziri Ringim, was the leader of defunct Arewa Peoples Congress, APC. He is known as the front line Gen. Babangida loyalist. He retired from the military as intellignce officer in the 1990’s. He had this to say in an interview with the Media.

When asked about how to resolve the issue of boko haram he suggested dialogue as a way out. But he turned, as usual, aggressive and deep into politics of divide and conquer and old strategy used by the northern oligarchs to conquer the oil rich region of Nigeria. He further sounded very stupid and filled with disgusting vile and hate for the Igbos. It was the same propaganda used during the civil war to make the newly created South-South geo-political zone dislike the Igbos.

The Republican News wrote about this in “Kano for Hausas and Fulanis, Lagos for Yorubas, but oil is for everyone”. It is the same old tactics, that he is following, as a retired military intelligence officer he understands it very well. The question is, is the old politics of divide and conquer still working with the citizens of South-South? I strongly doubt it. Forty five years after the end of the civil war, I am sure the oil rich regions know exactly who their enemies are, and that is definitely not the Igbos. The Igbos do not have oil blocks, and they have made it economically without recourse to oil. So, oil cannot be their reason for economic success.  Enjoy the excerpts from his interview.

Are you suggesting dialogue as a way out?

If there is no dialogue how do you stop the remnants, supporters, children of those killed from metamorphosing into another insurgents? There has to be a way of making them know that what they are doing is not helping them and that their concept of Jihad is off mark.

If they are fighting for the cause of Islam, they are killing Muslims more than they are killing anybody. So you find that we can only do that by peaceful means.

Is it appropriate to describe the current agitation by the Indigenous People of Biafra for Biafra Republic as a transfer of aggression to the Nigerian state?

Those Indigenous People of Biafra have a hidden agenda. Their hidden agenda is to declare Biafra and then go recolonize the South-South.

They would go and within a question of less than one month they would capture all those South-South and colonise the oil fields that is the agenda of IPOB. If you look at the East, it is land-locked; they don’t have any serious minerals apart from coal.

Even the geography and geology of the East is so poor that even to build a good house they cannot unless you build a house in a bush because it’s all bush, it’s all forested and that is why you find the majority of the elite Igbo are now half of the owners of the houses in Abuja.

If the Indigenous People of Biafra are now saying that they want to have Biafra what are you going to do with more than three quarters of the Igbo who are outside the East?

Those in Kano, those in Lagos what are you going to do with then? Will you take all those people back to Biafra? They have no houses to live, they have no means of livelihood. They make money outside and not in the East so you find that they are crawling into fantasy world.

They were talking vaguely during former President Goodluck Jonathan administration but what is really happening is they still say that Nigeria is not fair to the Igbo. One, up till now they do not have an Igbo President.
