Tinubu: “I Don’t Know Why South East Is Quiet ; President Needs To Find Out” – Professor Usman

Published by admin on

In a recent interview on Arise News, Professor Usman Yusuf, former Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), expressed his bewilderment at the uncharacteristic quietness of the South East region in the ongoing discourse on the country’s economic challenges.

Professor Yusuf, while discussing the current economic situation, was asked why the North and South West have been the most vocal in addressing these issues, while the South East and South-South have remained relatively silent.

He stated, “I honestly don’t know why the Southeast is quiet, uncharacteristically quiet, but then, the president needs to find out.”

The professor’s comments come amidst a backdrop of traditional rulers from the northern part of the country speaking out about the hardships faced by their constituents, including food insecurity and insecurity.

The silence of the South East, a region known for its activism and agitation for better governance, has raised questions about the political implications for President Tinubu.

The South South like the South East gave their vote in 2023 considering the unity of the country 1st by voting the right person but since the Cabels knows best how to manipulate our votes to suite their personal interest, we are here watching to see how the ball is play between the only two major tribes that claimed the Nation belong to them.

Nigeria as a country expired in 2014 and should be dissolved..

Let’s head for regional system of government and restructuring simple..

The Igbos have suffered enough as one Nigeria and it’s better to for them to be watching the episode as it’s unfolds..

How many appointments have been given to Ndi Igbo
All the key offices that drives the Economic of the Nation is not in any Igbo man’s hand
They can’t complain for a problem they didn’t create

Simple . Ndi igbo are focused and busy people . Na who shit go pack him shit. KOKOROKO to you guys .so you are now town criers

Chimezie · February 18, 2024 at 12:26 pm

Because the Igbos survived the hunger, starvation, and the genocide of the civil war so they are now immune . Tell him

    Moreso during the 2023 election the the Igbos saw the present situation coming and came out enmass to vote against it but the north conspired with the west to subvert their goals and aspirations. An average Igbo man is 60 years “older” than any Nigerian.

Ndị Igbo are quite because even during the civil war, when they were subjected to the worst of economic blockade, deprived of their wealth and given a paltry $20 after the war, made the weeping child of Nigeria, they were able to out of nothing build Onitsha, Enugu, Aba, Owerri, Abakaliki etc into a bastion of boisterous economic progress.

So no matter the economic woes today, Igbos will survive and need not to complain

Let them continue to dance the music they are beating. The Igbo man is grossly disadvantaged in this contraption called Nigeria and he is busy with efforts to smoothen the crooked path created by successive leaderships in Nigeria. It is unarguable that the South East has been effectively shut out of Nigeria’s sources while the rest bask on unearned wealth and affluence.

The ibos are not political in nature but went all out this last time but nothing came out of it so they have gone back to be themselves. The Lagos scenario during and after the elections shocked the ibos beyond words so they have decided to tend to their businesses

    The Southeast is quiet because they have always been silenced whenever they want to speak out; and they are always speaking of every body’s liberation. In recent years a man like Mazi Nnamdi began to speak about Biafra liberation and the liberation of all the indigenous people of Nigeria from the British contraption; he was abducted from Kenya and put in the DSS solitary confinement to rot away. The Igbo people have been crying aloud, ” Give us back our son!” , but nobody gave them a listening ear. Even the Federal Court Of Appeal in October 2022 discharged and acquitted him and till date he is still detained by the government.

    Again in 2023 Mr. Peter Obi who believes in Nigeria came out to run for the Presidency and Nigerians in their multitude to vote him; and it was a Northerner in the person of Yakubu Mamoud that rigged him out. Remember that before the election Nasir El -Rufai said that it is it is better to go to war than for the Igbo to become the President of Nigeria. Nigerians don’t want us to be Nigeria and they don’t want to leave us alone . They will continue to reap what they sow. I’m of the opinion that Nigeria be dissolved in peace!

Ndi Igbo are not quiet! They are strategizing underground for the 2027 general elections. The first step is how they will relocate businesses, mainly from Lagos axis to the East.
Thereafter, Nigeria will see weene!

odama ogah · February 18, 2024 at 8:39 am

Because they’re the ones benefitting from the high cost of goods and services and probably they are the ones causing the high prices.

    Kelvin · February 18, 2024 at 11:41 am

    You want them to distract themselves with the mess your people created?

    Elvis Obi · February 18, 2024 at 1:37 pm

    It is unfortunate that it’s people like you and people that think like you that are Nigerian problems, pls don’t stop keep blaming the Igbo and never see the problem before you.

    Well said

According to Igbo culture and traditions, it’s only those that prepared and masked a masquerade from right the shrine has right to advise and correct the acts, conducts and movements of the masquerade while performing in public . Others wise you are a spectator. “Onye ju ọgwụgwụ oñulu udo”

What do you want the Southeast to do. The Igbo nation has been told they are a conquered nation and there complain doesn’t count. How much did Buhari’s minister of Humanitarian activity shared to Ndi Igbo, what was Buhari’s contribution to the welfare of Ndi Igbo. The money for the second Niger bridge was secured from Jonathan’s regime. You can see how the 2024 presidential election was rigged by INEC to make sure the Igbo man lost. So the Igbo man has found out that the nation Nigeria does not need him and is living as such. Please in God’s name leave the Igbo nation out of Nigeria’s problems. You people, the Muslim North and the Yoruba nation brought all the problems we are having in Nigeria, so find the solutions by yourselves
