Charly Boy Said .... I am an original ‘Nwa Biafra’ but…

One of Nigeria’s controversial musician and television presenter Charles Oputa popularly known as ‘Charly Boy’ has finally addressed the issue of Biafra, the civil war and leadership in Nigeria.

Charly Boy in a recent statement said President Muhammadu Buhari, Yorubas or even Hausas are not the problems of the Igbo man.
While accepting that he is a proud Igbo man, Charly Boy, said the failure of an Igbo nation is the fault of the elites and decision maker from the South-East region.
Charly Boy said: “The Igbos may have short circuited their political growth, but it doesn't take away the fact that we are great Nigerians.
“I have learnt to be more Igbotic than I ever expected. As an igbo man, I have learnt to be more profitable in the things that I do. I have perfected the art of being tenacious in any dream I chase; to be industrious, consistent and powerfully focused.

“All the lessons I learnt from my brothers in the tribe have made me dogged, hardworking and exhibiting the ability and capacity to survive in any kind of weather. I am an original Nwa Biafra,” Charly Boy said.
He said while the Igbo man has entrepreneurial abilities, he fails to develop his home and focuses on developing other peoples’ environment.
“See how we have migrated to different parts of Nigeria and the world which is good, made it home and developed our immediate environment. Why are we neglecting our home base, why are we running away from developing the South East?
Also referring to Biafra as an illusion, Charly Boy said docility has eroded humanity from Nigerians.
“Why have we not poured our energy, capacity and Ability into making the South East the Dubai of the Nation as well as the engine room of the Nigerian Economy? Who would be our leaders when the south east is infested with political power grabbers, 419ers, mindless criminals and looters of our commonwealth and resources? Need I mention names?
Our problem may not after all be the man in Aso Rock from Daura or the ordinary Hausa or Yoruba man on the Streets of Lagos, Abuja, Kano, Warri or Ogbomosho. The problem is the lack of men of integrity and a progressive mind set.
We lack the right kind of leadership that will fight for the interest of the People. Let it be clear to all that the suffering of the People from the South East is also the suffering of the people from the other geopolitical zones in Nigeria.

Charly Boy has said that the dreams of nationhood has been lost on the alter of deception

It is therefore retrospectively insane to begin to think that a people with a problem would suddenly be relieved when they are attached with a tag #BIAFRA; What Nonsense and Insanity!
Now how do you begin to imagine that while the agitation for the state of Biafra is being demanded by the gullible Ibo youths, those who have been or are in position of authority are either not interested or are continuing their expansive investments in other part of Nigeria?
Who dem dey deceive? They divide us daily with Religion, Tribalism, Ethnicity and Petty Bigotry even among the Tribes and Ethnic composition in the South East there is divisiveness.
Why is Nnamdi Kanu yet to realize that the dreams of nationhood are lost in the altar of deception.
Have we even considered that the population of my people from the south east outside the Region is twice the population of those in the south east? How can we who are supposed to be looking at making the South East the centralised Industrial Hub of the Nigeria Nation be the ones who are driving a wedge of unrealistic fantasy between Nigeria and our own people? When President Muhammadu Buhari sings the localization and Nigerianazation song; we should be the ones to drive the narrative, because We Can.
