I, Onyebuchi Eze, a Biafran freedom fighting activist and also a member of Family Writers with Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the supreme leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (Prisoner of Conscience), an Indigenous People from the old Eastern Region of the defunct Nigeria federation in West Africa which its indigenous people reside all over the world. I am unreservedly sending to you this congratulatory message for the new position given to you by the international community. I am very happy for your emergence as the new Secretary-general of United Nations. I am also by extension appreciating the Almighty God for making the process of your emergence as the UN Secretary-general very peaceful.

Sir, I am highly convinced that your emergence is going to be a new dawn to United Nations at least by restoring the prestige, integrity and authority vested on United Nation Charter which nearly lost its powers & relevance to protect the political, cultural, economic, religious and human right of Indigenous People especially in Africa under the watch of your predecessor, Mr Ban Ki-Moon. Sir, I am convinced that your tenure will restore the dignity and pride of United Nations which is anchored in defence of the down trodden, vehement protection of the right of any Indigenous People under heaven no matter the colour of their skin, giving hope to battered, wounded, molested, massacre & displaced people anywhere in the world.

Sir, all these above mentioned goals for establishing United Nations got forgotten completely or become a mere verbal expression during the tenure of your predecessor, Ban Ki-Moon in United Nations. Sir, Mr Ban Ki-Moon and his general assembly practically turned UN into an organization for aiding dictatorship, a platform for praising-singing for tyrants like President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria who defiantly disobeyed the orders and verdicts of Nigeria municipal courts and ECOWAS court & a citadel for clapping for the oppression of humanity.

Sir, I also want to use this opportunity to bring to your notice the plight of people of Biafra in West Africa, a republic declared in the year 1967, by the then Nigeria military office Col Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu. Sir, that republic existed for 30 months in the face of a genocidal war which claimed 3.5 million Biafran lives including children and women. The war was waged against our fathers by Nigeria military coalition headed by Britain with the support of USSR, Egypt and other Arab nations as UN watch.

 Sir, our fathers later relinquished the sovereignty of Biafra which they have taken by force when they can no longer resist the fire power of the British military coalition in January 1970 when it became obvious that it is either they surrender or have the Biafra Indigenous people wipe out of the face of the earth with their artillery, sea, air and land blockade of Biafrans from access to food & medicine.

Sir, since the war ended in 1970, there is no manner of injustice, impunity & social crime that Nigeria government has not committed against Biafrans from the time of military dictatorship to the present day Buhari civilian tyranny. Sir, it is important to inform you that it is this unabated injustice being meted on the people made them unable to forget Biafra. Presently, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (POC), a dual European and African citizen, a native of Igbo Biafra is leading an unquenchable crusade for the restoration of Biafra republic on a platform known as Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under his supreme command.

Sir, due to the Nigeria government regular way of treating Biafrans with disdain and contempt, President Muhammadu Buhari illegally arrested & detain Mazi Nnamdi Kanu for one year now, even refusing to obey courts verdicts presided over by Usman Shuaibu of Magistrate court & Hon Justice Adeniyi Ademola of Federal high court, which in different times ordered the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu unconditionally due to inability of Buhari and his agents to substantiate their allegation against Mazi Kanu in the court.

Sir, Indigenous People of Biafra have called the attention of United Nations to stand by its Charter on the right of any Indigenous people to embark on self-determination if they are not satisfied with any country they were forced into by colonial powers. Unfortunately, UN under Mr. Ban Ki-Moon has no regard for the cry of the oppressed but rather dines and wines with dictators and tyrants. As a result, people have lost confidence in UN due to the tenure of Mr. Ban Ki-Moon. Sir, will you restore the confidence and integrity of UN during your tenure by addressing the tyranny being meted on Indigenous people all over the world especially Biafrans? Sir, by doing that, you will write your name on sand of history. Remember, an injustice against Biafrans is a threat to justice to the whole world.
