Read Charly Boy’s Opinion On Not Supporting Biafra

Popular musician and television presenter Charles 'Charly Boy' Oputa has again addressed the issue of Biafra agitation and his recently solidarity for the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu.

Charly Boy in this fresh piece says, while he does not support nor agitates for the freedom of Biafra as a country, he is a 'Biafran' at heart.

The musician said he is also an advocate for human rights and justice irrespective of who is involved.

I am aware that my recent picture with Nnamdi Kanu at Federal High Court, Abuja, has generated a lot of reactions and comments; some witty, others dim-witted, not that I blame them though.

I am also aware that the picture has encouraged a vast number of people to take a decisive position on whether or not Biafra is the right cause.

Even more, I am aware that the picture has left many people confused and skeptical of reports that I am now supporting Biafra. Na wa.

I am also aware that the picture has encouraged a vast number of people to take a decisive position on whether or not Biafra is the right cause.

I would like to say for the umpteenth time, that, I am Not in support and will never be in support of a country to be called Biafra. However, I am a Biafran in my heart, period.

My reason, however, for visiting Nnamdi Kanu in court, was to make my discontent and disillusionment on his prolonged incarceration known to the federal government who have kept him behind bars for too long.

If the government have issues with Nnamdi Kanu, let them charge him to court and let the rule of law decide.

For whatsoever reason, no man deserves to be ill-treated in his fatherland as Nnamdi Kanu is being treated. Hence, the need for my interference in the ever-growing call for his release.

I stand for equal rights and justice, period. Advocating for the Okada community does not make me an Okada rider.

Advocating for gay rights does not make me a gay person. So, asking for Nnamdi's release does not make me a Biafran supporter. Lai Lai!

Sometime in January 2017, I wrote about my thoughts on the Biafra agitation and how I do not consider it a feasible adventure especially when there are so many important things my Ibo kindred can alternatively dedicate their all to.

I titled the article "The illusion called Biafra", those who haven't read it should read it up because what I wrote therein will always be my stance on Biafra.

Back then, I had written that the dreams of nationhood are lost on the altar of deception, and my Ibo people must be circumspect of this fact and not be hoodwinked into some insane propaganda that will only lead to more wahala.

So, instead of Biafra, we should channel our energies and abilities towards developing the South-East to become the economic hub of Nigeria.

The fight for Nationalists who will drive the discourse and the engagement necessary in answering the Nigeria National questions must not be bugged down by petty sentiments and tribal colourations.

Abi... Didn't the fall of Biafra after the genoocide, starvation, and immense suffering of my people teach us anything?

I Believe the Failure of the Igbo nation is the fault of the people, her elites and decision-makers. 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 is the lack of men of integrity and a progressive mind set.
