According to a press statement released to pressmen through email on Tuesday, 16th February, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s reason for relieving the sacked Director Generals of the government-owned media of their duties was their inability to understand and surmount the technological strength of the Radio Biafra.
As is noted in the statement issued by Dr. Clifford Iroanya, IPOB’s Coordinator of Coordinators, Buhari was disappointed that after releasing billions of dollars to these government-owned media houses for the purpose of equipping them to be able to knock off Radio Biafra from the world wide wave, they only proved to be incompetent in carrying out their duties against the Biafran radio station reports Vanguard.
The statement entitled: “Nigeria’s media chiefs sacked because of inability to stop Radio Biafra”, reads:
“In several occasions, these organizations boasted that they have effectively neutralized Radio Biafra and went to town partying for their phantom success. To their chagrin, Radio Biafra continued to broadcast to the entire humanity with more devastating and damaging evidences of structural deficiencies inherent in the British concoction called Nigeria.
“Radio Biafra has been able to raise the consciousness of Biafrans as well as the International Community on the plight of Biafrans and provided incontrovertible evidence that Biafra consists of the present-day South-East, South-South (except Edo state), Igala in Kogi state, and Idoma in Benue State.
“The ‘divide-and-rule’ strategy fashioned against Biafrans by the British and their Hausa-Fulani and Yoruba accomplices were effectively deconstructed and destroyed by the superior evidence, logic, and research undertaken by the Editorial Board of Radio Biafra.

“Furthermore, Radio Biafra was used and is still being used as a rallying point for Biafrans all over the world including those residing in various parts of Nigeria. Through the efforts and instrumentality of Radio Biafra, every Biafran has truly identified himself or herself as a Biafran and recognizes the supremacy of Chukwu Okike Abiama (God the Creator) in all things.
“Radio Biafra was able to remove the scales of deceit planted by Yoruba-based Pentecostal Churches and their criminal tithing obsessions with which they cart away billions of Naira every week from Biafrans in Biafranland and elsewhere in the world. Finally, Radio Biafra imparted into Biafrans, the unquenchable, unstoppable, irreversible, and irresistible quest for the restoration of the Nation of Biafra.
“Considering these and many more monumental achievements of Radio Biafra and how hopelessly and helplessly these Nigeria’s major Media Outfits were, Buhari was left with no other option than to sack the Media Chiefs. Therefore, their sack is an empirical evidence that Radio Biafra has won the media war.”
Recall that the news of how President Buhari had sacked these media chiefs made was in circulation on Monday and the affected persons include Mr. Sola Omole of the Nigerian television Authority, NTA; Ladan Salihu of the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria, FRCN; Sam Worlu of the Voice of Nigeria, VON; Mike Omeri of the National Orientation Agency, NOA; Emeka Mba of the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC and Ima Niboro of the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN.
