Nigerian enigmatic artist and social engineer, Charlyboy, also known as the AreaFada has said that every youth in Nigeria is a Biafran, stating that Biafra agitators are fighting against the same injustices meted on the youths by the nation’s leadership.
In an exclusive chat with DAILY POST in Abuja, the ‘Our mumu Don Do’ initiator said the agitation for Biafra is because of marginalisation and injustices, the same way the youths are maginalized and cry out daily over different forms of injustices.
He said, “Let me tell you something, every young Nigerian is a Biafran, because for how many years have the youths be marginalized in this country?
“Meanwhile, our founding fathers were useful in their days. They were young people. They were not old people. So why for decades upon decades do we insist on having old people? What is happening to the young people?
“They are the most marginalized. Forget about Igbos. The Igbos, Hausa and Yorubas, they know the game they are playing.
“Unfortunately, the Igbos from that region of the country are not good politicians. They may be good business people, but they are not politicians, and that is the reality on ground.’’
Speaking on the alleged hatred for the Igbo race, Charlyboy said, “But if you are asking if there is hatred, there is no tribe that is being hated like the Igbos. Why do you think that is so? Is it that they are not responsible kind of people or what? No!
“They are also the most successful. They strive. There is no place you will go to that you will not find them there. And if you can’t find them there, it means there is nothing happening there.
“So the biggest people that are marginalized are the young people.’’
