It is no longer news that Biafra Born Kaycee Madu was appointed Minister of Justice and Solicitor General for the Government of Alberta, in Canada.
The news broke out earlier today, but not without Nigeria Government claiming credit to the achievement of this Igbo son in faraway Canada, describing him as ‘Nigerian born’, Kaycee Madu.
This purely exposes the hypocrisy of the Nigerian government over the treatment of Ndị Igbo as a people.
Nigeria Media has been totally unfair to Ndi Igbo. They will quickly highlight the tribe of any man that commits crime abroad, once he is Igbo, but will report it as a Nigerian when it involves the Yoruba or Hausa and Fulani tribes. Moreover, when an Igbo excels, like they always do, same Nigeria that always ridicule the Igbo, will quickly describe them as Nigerians, downplaying or relegating their tribe to the background.
The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adeshina had on 27th August 2020 taken to his Social Media page to congratulate the Igbo born Kaycee Madu over his appointment as Minister Of Justice in Canada.
This exposes the deep-rooted hypocrisy of the Nigerian government. The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has in their political appointments, appointed mostly Fulani Muslims, relegating Igbos to the background. The President had during one of his interviews abroad described Ndi Igbo as 5%ers and his people as 95%ers. He pledged that he can’t treat his people same with 5%ers.
President Buhari, when he came back from medical treatment from abroad, removed the DSS Boss, Matthew Seifa after being appointed by vice-president Yemi Osibanjo.
This same government also disgracefully removed Onnoghen as the Supreme court Chief Judge by the same bigoted Nigeria federal government. We also witnessed how they used Supreme Court to remove duly elected Imo State Governor Emeka Ihedioha, and replaced him with their stooge.
According to Femi Adeshina, “President Muhammadu Buhari rejoices with Nigerian born Kaycee Madu, appointed Minister of Justice and Solicitor General for the Government of Alberta, in Canada. Madu makes history as the first African born provincial Minister in Canadian history and is also the Provincial Secretary and Keeper of the Great Seal of the Province of Alberta. President Buhari describes the honour as “landmark and historic,” saying it once again pedestals people of Nigerian descent as go-getters, who distinguish themselves in different walks of life…”
Just last Sunday, Nigeria Government using DSS went to Emene in Enugu State and opened fire on Igbo youths having their peaceful gathering, killing 21 persons on the spot and injuring many. This is one of the many killings carried out in Biafra land over the last six years, by the Nigeria government.
Recall that in 1968, Nigeria government committed similar genocide in Asaba. They gathered more than 1500 men, ordered them to shout ‘One Nigeria’, and shoot them all to death.
51years after this genocide, the Nigerian government is still killing Biafrans.
You can’t hate the Indigenous People of Biafra and Kill them in Enugu, Delta, Anambra, or Abia, only to celebrate them when they get prestigious appointment abroad.
The question we have to ask ourselves is this: Will Kaycee Madu be appointed as Supreme Court Judge had it been he is in Nigeria? Wouldn’t a Musa without certificate be appointed over him? Why congratulate a man you wouldn’t have appointed had it been he is in Nigeria, if not because of your deep-rooted hypocrisy?
The time for Biafrans to understand the game Nigeria government is playing over them is now.
