AN OPEN LETTER TO MY PEOPLE NDI IGBO

AN OPEN LETTER TO MY PEOPLE NDI IGBO

Nde ewo nu (Greetings), my people.

Do you desire recognition within the structure of the Federal Republic of Nigeria or are you intent on secession?

Do note that the latter is not a guarantee of unity of the South-East, for though it is well known as Igbo land, the South-East is a conglomeration of attractive, but diverse ethnic origins.

Recognitions and rights are not symbolic ideologies. You must first assert your freedoms and rights as an individual citizen of this nation. Do you practice that?

If you have rights, which I am sure you do as a citizen, you live those rights everywhere you are. You are a Nigerian. Be a Nigerian.

Your rights as a Nigerian is to live, travel and conduct your activities freely anywhere in this country. Yes, Ndi Igbo are residents of every habitable village in this nation. However, do you reside in those places as a Nigerian or as a subordinate, ever ready to enter into an alliance only to be used and dumped?

If you are proud of your freedoms and rights as a Nigerian, you will acknowledge that you need not adopt practices and languages extraneous to your identity to abide by the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The inability of Ndi Igbo (Igbo people) to be Nigerians spurs the agitation for secession.

Do you desire to rule this nation when you cannot assert your rights as a Nigerian to retain your identity against assimilation?

You cannot sincerely expect fellow Nigerians to take you seriously when you do not even take your citizenship seriously.

May Allah guide my people to the Right Path. Aameen.

The one and only,

Umm Sulaim
