Malami and The Outdated Politics of Divide and Conquer by Written by Emeka Gift.
The Nigerian Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, remains a kindergarten in contemporary politics. How really on earth did this man actually get to the position he presently occupies, is disappointedly embarrassing on justice related issues evolving in the country, against the indigenous people.
His shameful antecedents and politics of divide and conquer against a well-informed people of Biafra and Oduduwa, can be best described as outdated politics of 1960s. Abubakar Malami needs a holistic upgrade in his chosen profession. He has to humbly stay updated on the intricacies and intrigues involved in today’s politics. For a Nigerian Federal Justice Minister and Attorney General to be shamelessly saying that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), invaded the palace of a Yoruba traditional ruler during the 2020 Nationwide EndSars Protest, is most callous, childish and very outdated tricks of 60s.
What does this man really take this generation for? Uninformed lots? This statement forms part of the outdated tricks these opportunists adapted in the nineteen sixties which worked in their favor. They should however, note that this generation is very far ahead of them and are digitally inclined. Both Biafrans and Oduduwas have since, exceeded this stage of crudity that the Fulanis’ driven “divide and rule” system that the British bequeathed to them. The Oduduwa and the Biafra people are undoubtedly, more united now than ever.
Abubakar Malami should be clearly told in case he has really lost sight of reality, despite his acclaimed position, that his pitiably petty craftiness of divide and rule tactics are bound to hit the rocks in the current dispensation. It may have worked for them in times past against the Igbos and their brothers/sisters in the coastal region but not now anymore. Today, the Igbos are working so hard to erase that divisive syndrome and enmity the Fulani oligarchs installed between the South-East region and its own people in the South-South region. By the grace of God, that barrier of the evil seed of hatred, will be thing of the past.
The Oduduwa and Biafra people are today, wiser and cannot fall for the Fulani led Nigerian government’s analog trap of divide and rule politics. The Attorney General should be tutored in the very art intelligent politicking and fully acquaint himself with the knowledge that he is dealing with sophisticated generation of brilliant brains. This his adventure is self-defeatist, it will most assuredly be his waterloo, alongside his masters. This is new generation with smartphone ,that old tricks won’t work with us.
God bless Biafra Nation
God bless Oduduwa Nation.
