Biafra, Buhari and The Easter Day Rising (Part 2) - Femi Fani-Kayode

 
Thankfully under President Goodluck Jonathan the Igbo managed to do better than at any other time in our history. As a matter of fact this was so much the case that Nigerians from other parts of the country, particularly the Yoruba and the Hausa-Fulani, often sulked about it and openly complained.
Jonathan had a soft spot for the Igbo and I have little doubt that that partiality was borne out of his innate sensitivity to their historical trials and tribulations. It may have been sub-conscious but I have no doubt that it was there.
Unlike others he viewed the Igbo as equals and regarded them as human beings: he treated them with respect and decorum and he gave them their due. Consequently it was under Jonathan that Lt. General Azubuike Ihejirika the first Igbo Chief of Army Staff since the civil war was appointed.

APC now has two factions - Timi Frank


The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of APC, Timi Frank, on March 31st told journalists in Abuja, that their are now two factions of the party in existence.

“I spoke in Bayelsa about what is going on in our party but they did not take me seriously. Very soon, the crisis will happen at the national level too. If anyone tells you that there is no crisis in the national APC, it is a lie. The party is now divided into two. The issue of the Senate president is still there and the party is not talking. So, there is crisis in the party. We have so much divisions and they are keeping quiet. If care is not taking, we are soon going to lose our popularity as a party.”
