FENRAD: Self-determination is a Principle of Human Rights, What then is Sit-at-home?

Foundation for Environmental Rights Advocacy and Development, FENRAD, a pro-democracy and environmental rights group has keenly monitored for five weeks now the Mondays "sit-at-home" order issued by the leadership of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB in the entire Southeast region as a protest measure against the unlawful "interception" and deportation of its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who is currently detained at DSS facility pending court trial.   It is necessary at this time to point out that the problem is rooted in the earliest crises that rocked the nation barely seven years after independence leading to civil war in 1967. The politics of 1967-70 has sadly remained unaddressed as of yet and still forms part of the Southeast marginalisation question, as FENRAD understands it. This marginalisation, made worse by successive governments since the end of the war in January 1970, is itself the reinforcing factor responsible for secessionist bids in the


WE SUPPORT THE GOVERNMENT TO DO ALL IT CAN TO RESTORE SANITY The Global Association of Concerned Imo Youths (GACIY) urges the Independent Petroleum Marketers to stop the exploitation of Imo people by their members occasioned by artficial scarcity which has led to hike in the price of Premium Motor Spirit (petrol) in the State in the last two weeks. As a group we view this development as gross wickedness and insensitivity on the part of oil marketers who are selling the false narrative of fighting the Government when they are actually enriching themselves by criminally selling above the stipulated price of fuel as announced by the Federal Government. One would ask, how does one fight the Government by unleashing hardship on the people and enriching oneself by hoarding fuel?  It is shameful that a group that approached a court seeking favourable justice will turn the table to unleash wickedness and evil to the people simply because the State Government opted to appeal the judgement of th


The President's visit to Imo has been trending online, some for the news and some for the wrong reasons best known to them. The SA on Media to President Muhammad Buhari, Mr. Femi Adesina in a press statement released yesterday has clarified some of these issues.  He said "We have observed that President Buhari’s concluding remarks at the meeting with South East Leaders during his one day visit to Imo State is being deliberately contorted and twisted out of context."   The purveyors of disinformation want Nigerians to believe that the President bluntly told Governor Uzodinma, ‘‘I’ll be careful with your future invitations.’’    They have adduced different meanings to the phrase, contrary to the context wherein the President spoke during his successful dialogue with leaders of thought from Igbo land.   When he arrived at the banquet hall of Imo State Government House for his last assignment in Owerri, the President was welcomed by over 50 leaders from the South East who had
