  • We Are Not Biafrans, Akwa Ibom Group Says
  • A socio-cultural group in Akwa Ibom State,
    Mboho Mkparawa Ibibio, has protested against the
    reported inclusion of the state in an imaginary
    Biafran map.
    The group accused the Indigenous People of
    Biafra, IPOB, and the Movement for Actualization
    of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, of including
    Akwa Ibom and other states within the south-
    south region of Nigeria on the Biafran map without
    consulting them.
    It said it considered the inclusion an act of
    disrespect and provocation.
    “We wish to remind the concerned Igbos that this
    senseless arrogance and callous disrespect for
    the Ibibio person, an endemic and pathological
    trait of their extraction has been at the core of the
    differences of our two nationalities,” the group
    said in a statement signed by its President,
    Monday Etokakpan, and Secretary General,
    James Edet.
    “And so as it was in the first republic, so it is now
    and so shall it be in times to come. Ibibio has
    nothing in common with Igbo. To wit, we differ in
    ancestry, culture, beliefs, character traits,
    language, food, names, dressing and all.”
    The group said if Nigeria were to break up today,
    Akwa Ibom would be “at home and in league with
    our kin and kindred in the proposed Atlantic
    Republic consisting of present States of Akwa
    Ibom, Bayelsa, Cross River, Delta, Edo, and Rivers.
    “Our Capital City shall be Port Harcourt, our
    Currency and Language shall both be Lanti.”
    The group said that Akwa Ibom, for now, prefers
    to stay within the Nigeria federation.
    “If the Igbos will be honestly desirous, sincerely
    determined and eventually successful in breaking
    away from Nigeria, we the Ibibio people in Akwa
    Ibom and Cross River States will be totally
    indifferent and will only be here to bid them fare-
    well.
    “As a distinct and independent-minded people of
    over seven million in population we will continue
    to weigh our options in the Nigerian chase board
    and make the right moves the way we want it, in
    the direction we want, at the time we want and will
    partner with whomever we want to, if we must
    partner with anyone, to serve our best interest,”
    the group said.
    The group said it was “unfortunate though not
    surprising” for the northern youth to order the
    Igbos to leave the north before October 1. It
    blamed the situation on the country’s refusal to
    start a process of restructuring the federation.”
    The call by the northern group has been
    condemned by state and federal officials.
    “We call on Northern Nigeria opinion leaders,
    elders, religious and political leaders and indeed
    the Federal Government to do the needful in
    reining in this mindless radicalism from their
    youth,” the group said.
    “Mboho Mkparawa Ibibio would like to remind the
    northern Nigerians that no one, youth or elders, in
    the country has the monopoly of violence and that
    the lives and legitimately acquired property of the
    Ibibio person means the world to us.
    “Therefore, no harm must befall them wherever
    they have chosen to live in Nigeria and indeed
    anywhere on the surface of the earth. Mboho
    Mkparawa Ibibio believes and will ensure that the
    Ibibio people exact pound for pound, flesh for
    flesh and life for life if necessary,” the group said.
