Development worldwide show that Biafrans and Nigerians in United States of America (USA), should begin to prepare for the crunch as Donald Trump would soon be sworn in as the President. It is expected that sanitization wind will blow through USA, meaning different things to different people.
To evil people, it is going to be like persecution; but for the good people, it is going to be good news. Indeed, for Biafrans and Nigerians, it is going to be like what is going on in Turkey at the moment. Today in Turkey, immigration officials are granting Biafrans, recognition and freedom, while deporting Nigerians.
No thanks to the atrocities of Muhammadu Buhari, the Nigeria President who had a hand in sponsoring the Coup d’état of July 15 in the Asian country of Turkey, for which the government of Turkey has turned against Nigerians. Unfortunately, some Biafrans were also being deported alongside Nigerians until the leadership of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the country moved to arrest the situation.
IPOB Coordinator in Turkey reached out to immigration officials in the country, explaining to them that Biafrans were different to Nigerians. He told them that Biafrans were stateless persons whose land has been under military occupation by Nigeria since 1970, and that they were not happy being addressed and treated like Nigerians.
The IPOB Coordinator, who is a prominent and influential individual in the area of Turkey where he was residing, informed them that it would be unfair and unjust to punish Biafrans alongside Nigerians for atrocities committed by evil Nigerian government and its functionaries. After all the information were shared; after realizing that Biafrans were different from Nigerians; and after learning that Biafrans were seriously working to exit from Nigeria, Turkey immigration officials decided to no longer deport Biafrans as Nigerians.
This became so good for Biafrans that Nigerians began to claim that they were Biafrans whenever they were apprehended by Turkish authorities. Realizing what was happening; Turkey officials resorted to having the Biafran Coordinator clear anyone that claimed to be Biafran. Apart from that, the Coordinator was advised to prepare and issue Biafran Identity Cards to Biafrans to make it impossible for Nigerians to impersonate them again.
This will most certainly be the case in USA once Trump becomes the President of United States (POTUS), all things being equal. Nigerians will be hounded as a result of the atrocities of their illiterate and religious bigot of a President called Muhammadu Buhari. The world was recently informed that Buhari donated $500M to Clinton’s campaign by a US non-government group that goes with the name, American Black Group. It is to be expected that Americans, who do not take kindly to anyone or any government influencing their election will come down hard on Nigeria and Nigerians.
News filtering through Biafra Choice Writers now is that Biafrans in Diaspora, under IPOB has commencement a worldwide movement to identify Biafrans and certify them. They want to circumvent Biafrans suffering for the atrocities of Nigeria.
To start with, they are commencing a campaign that would make it known to the world that Biafrans are not Nigerians, but stateless persons that were forced into Nigerian and are still being coerced to remain in it.
A Biafran leader in the USA, Clifford Iroanya, who is also the Coordinator of all Coordinators (CoC) explained to Biafra Choice Writers what IPOB leadership was doing. “We are Biafrans, and as a matter of fact victims of Nigeria’s evil and atrocities. Why then will we allow ourselves to be seen as Nigerians and made to suffer for Nigeria’s numerous atrocities in many parts of the world” he queried.
Choice Writers learnt that IPOB has started producing a security-proof Identity Card (ID) for every Biafran in Diaspora; and that USA was being given prime attention in anticipation of Trump’s Presidency. “We supported Trump’s candidacy and would not want to suffer for the acts of Nigeria and its leadership” he concluded.
