Opening Speech by His Majesty Eze Ogunka

Indeed, this been the first general conference of all elders of IPOB from across Biafra land for over hundred years, the Hausa Fulani Oligarchy through the British government have held us in bondage, therefore the elders this day the 25th May 2018 call on all Biafrans to arise and join hands with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the leader of this global family and take the bull by the horn and fight for your freedom and the freedom of your future generation to come.

His Majesty Eze Ogunka continued in his speech; although time may not permit me yet I must make mention of this very important issue, after the amalgamation of 1914 till now, we've been faced with the most inhuman treatment from these evil men, having known that we Biafrans are the direct descendants of Obu Uga the 7th son of Jacob initiated the secret plan to eliminate all of our breed yet we know that the Almighty creator whose we are will, not allow them succeed.

Systematic killing has always been ever before and after the war, killing of Biafrans have been the major task of the Federal government of Nigeria. This must be accomplished at all cost. Economically, politically and infrastructural the Federal government in collaboration with the British government have continue to destroy Biafrans ever since the discovery of oil in Biafra land, our farmlands have been totally destroyed, our Rivers ruined, our environment and communities have been polluted with soot, our populations are daily been reduced as our sons and daughters are been killed by the security forces of the Nigerian government.

To all IPOB and Biafrans worldwide we want to state it categorically clear that the elders council of which His Majesty Eze Ogunka is the chairman been mandated by the leader of Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on the 25th of July 2017 to organize the entire elders of IPOB across all Biafraland to ensure that this message of freedom is carried far and wide across all Biafraland therefore, we are not politicians neither are we here for politics nor for power play but to ensure that we restore Biafra nothing else nothing more . We the elders of IPOB use this medium to call on all principle officers of IPOB in and outside Biafra land to please join hands with them the elders of IPOB to fight to restore Biafra and not ourselves, remember a house divided will not stand.

Also, the welcome address was anchored by - Bishop Dr. Yekhoneys King

Welcome address presented by the elders of IPOB Igwuocha; on the inaugural interactive meeting of the supreme council of elders of IPOB on this day the 25th of May, 2018.

His Lord Spiritual
Your Excellences,
Royal Fathers,
His Chiefs
Ndi Nze na Ozo
Great elders of IPOB, and
Lovers of freedom

We humbly Greet you all.
We do heartily welcome you all to this epic and epoch interactive meeting of elders of IPOB from across Biafra land. Welcome to Igwuocha Rivers region.

This meeting is therefore timely and necessary in that it has been said.
"It is an abomination for the goat to put to birth tired to the rope while the elderly man is around."

This, therefore is a call on our moral conscience, calling on us to live up to our responsibility as men on whose shoulders lays the destines of our future generations and define the land and the entire people of Biafra from total extinction.

Responding to this clarion call from our prophetic visionary son Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who is currently abducted and held incommunicado; that is if alive, by the Nigerian government, is imperative or we will all be slaughtered like rats by these rampaging blood thirsty Hausa Fulani Islamic vampires masquerading around in the name of killer herdsmen, financed by the Nigerian government in collaboration with the British government.

We therefore join Mazi Nnamdi Kanu calling on all sons and daughters of Biafra, that is the formal old eastern region of Nigeria now the south-East the South-south and the lower middle belt to eschew all Manners of bitterness, sectionalism, fault-finding and tribalism and come together as one resourceful dynamic and strong indivisible nucleus family offspring of one progenitor, people with one destiny, one goal, one hope and common energy: Nigeria and the British government, and fight for our collective freedom as Biafrans, and until freedom is achieved no retreat no surrender.

Fellow elders we are gathered here today to holistically look inward so as to avoid making the same mistakes as did our predecessors who for a pound of flesh betrayed the cause of freedom during the then Nigeria Biafra war of 1967-1970.

The people's general Ikemba I of Nnewi Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu during the meeting of the south-south forum organized by the late activist Dr

Ken Saro Wiwa here in Igwuocha; in his short but ever powerful speech said:

"Good Morning, Good Morning, Good Morning"

This indeed indicates that all that betrayed the cause of freedom during the war are now only but walking up and regretting their actions. Follow elders do not be deceived by anyone calling for One Nigeria; in the name of restructuring. Remember, the genocidal war of 1967-1970 that claimed well over 6.2 million Biafrans is still on. Systematically Biafran are killed daily with all impunity by Hausa Fulani and Yoruba oligarchy across every Nigerian city.

Fellow elders, must we continue to fold our hands, close our eyes pretending that all is well, while our future generations are sacrificed on the altar of personal interest by politicians and the so called Ohanaeze Ndi-Igbo, our youths, our future hope and strength and women killed?

The battle is intensifying and the killers are ravaging our community e.g. Enugwu killing 2016, IMO killing 2017, Rivers killing 2014, Abia killing 2014, Anambra killing 2016, Benue killing 2018 and Kogi killing 2018 in all these the Nigerian government with British government have remained clawless why? Because the elimination of all Biafrans has always been thesis number one priority.

Elders, men of high integrity I appeal to you today to please put aside all forums of selfishness, prejudice, sentiments, and this evil system of divide and rule injected into the very fabrics of our political system by the enemies with Which they manipulate and destroy us.

Stand up for your right to freedom. Speak up against all forms of wickedness, injustices and extrajudicial gruesome killings melted out against Biafrans in all ramifications by the Nigerian and the British government; whom haven sown to exterminate, annihilate and extinct all Biafrans from the face of the earth, and fight for your freedom, fight, yes; I say fight for your freedom. Remember freedom has never been freely given the oppressed by the oppressor, but forcefully taken by the oppressed. It's life or death, Biafra or Nothing.

Lastly, remember posterity will judge us all if we fail to stand up now and fight in defense of our heritage - Biafra and our people. Stand up for freedom, stand up for equity and justices. Stand up for posterity. Stand up for Biafra restoration. Also note that Ohanaeze Ndi-Igbo does not have the interest and the mandate of Ndi-Igbo.

Once again, the elders of IPOB say welcome to Igwuocha Rivers Province. God bless General Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Major Izuogu, General Philip Effiong, General Achuzie and all fallen Biafran heroes, God Bless Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Mazi Uche Mefor and all faithful IPOB members worldwide and God Bless Biafra our motherland, Land of the rising sun.
