Nigerian rapper, MI Abaga has reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s civil war tweets where he spoke of using his civil war experience to deal with arsonists, secessionists bent on destroying Nigeria through insurrection.
Naija News reports that the Nigerian rapper via Instagram pledged solidarity to all of the Igbos in the country, describing the threat issued by Buhari invaild as it is not the narrative of the present generation. He also urged other non-igbo Nigerians to help learn their voice into trending the #iamigbotoo.
Taking to his social media to pledge his solidarity; MI said; ‘‘I can’t imagine being an Igbo citizen and seeing those tweets yesterday. I thought it’d be beautiful today if we could just rally around, you know, organically just post the videos and messages on our timeline to tell our igbo brothers and sisters that we are one. We are igbo today. We are igbo too. We stand with you. We can not fix the years of that feeling of not being wanted or not being loved. That’s not going to be the narrative of our generations.”
Mentioning top artists like Don Jazzy, Flavour, the rapper reassured them of his love for them. He continued by saying;
‘‘So many Igbos that have contributed to our culture, to our people, beautiful people that has given so much to this contry. We stand with you because we are Igbo too. If you have an Igbo friend.. please post a message of solidarity using the hashtag #ozoemena #IamIgboToo and share online! Let love defeat hate!!”
Recall that President Buhari yesterday, after a security briefing with members of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, over attack on its facilities, threatened to deal with those who carried out the attacks.
The narrative that "Nigeria hates Igbo people" is an outdated context that will leave with the old and bitter generation
