DECLARATION OF RESOLVE By THE ALAIGBO DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION (ADF) BOARD OF TRUSTEES.
DEFEATING THE CONQUEST AGENDA WHILE PREVENTING ANARCHY IN ALAIGBO!
To all Lovers of Peace, Adherence to Democracy, and the Rule of Law:
We say, NO, to ANARCHY in our land, BUT we shall not and never will we surrender to the Invaders!
We say, YES, to pre-emptively robust SELF-DEFENSE. We must defend the land bequeathed to us by our Ancestors…with no apologies!
However, we MUST NOT, unwittingly, allow ANARCHY into our land and space. Thus, we say, NO!… to any Non-Defensive Action.
Our innocent youth have been egregiously aggrieved, unquestionably. However, we urge our youth to not, ever, initiate an assault, or reprisal action on the Military, the Police, and Security, governmental and public installations, without justifiable provocation!
We urge our Youths – Dutifully defend our cities, communities, religious installations, and symbols, our forests, farmlands, and rivers with patriotic courage!
Remember: In 1929 and beyond, our brave Women Amazons defeated the Colonial “masters” in Igboland, starting from Olokoro and Aba. Our illegally enslaved but gallant brothers defeated Napoleon Bonaparte’s army and liberated the island of Haiti in 1804; thus Haiti became the first Black Republic in the World. Our scientific ingenuity during the 1967-70 Nigeria-Biafra War astonished the world. In hindsight, some mistakes were made and we’re now living through the fallout. NEVER AGAIN!
Finally, we condemn the declaration of war on Alaigbo and her neighbors by President Buhari. While even his home state, Katsina, is daily ravaged by various bandits including his beloved Boko Haram, President Buhari’s soldiers and their allied Fulani herdsmen are abducting and killing innocent youth from Alaigbo and other Christian parts of the country. No SANE leader can feel unperturbed as President Buhari while his nation is in flames.
It is to be noted that President Buhari’s recent speech is a classic case of HATE SPEECH, Unfortunately, while TWITTER has recognized it for what it is, the National Assembly that is expected, as a body, to call Mr. President to order has maintained very embarrassing silence.
Mr. Buhari should remember that Ndigbo are wiser today than they were in 1967-70 when they lost the Biafra war due to internal strategic errors and international conspiracy.
NEVER AGAIN! ADF
