The Mystery behind the Nigerian Currency and the Quest for Igbo Presidency
After the war, in 1970 and the recognition of the Gowan's declaration of no victory no vanquish, the country resumned a new structure. The first approach to briddle the Igbo was to seize all the money in their Nigerian bank account and also seizure of their companies and businesses in the major cities outside the Igbo land. This was followed by the prohibition of citing of industries and ports in any Igbo territory. Rivers and Akwa Ibom shared in this second secret law of reducing the Igbo height. When the ports in Rivers became affected, the rest of the Igbo sisters embacked on a huge repudiation of Igbo ancestry.
In 1973, when it became obvious to the Fulani elders that their biggest treath, the Igbo, have started expanding explosively and waxing strong economically in all the corners of the nation, the need for a national rebirth had to be considered. At least, this rebirth would bring the conquerred territories to a perpetual subjugation against their own will. This decision was taken during a meeting of the disguise nomenclature tagged, Northen elders in Sokoto. Later on, the relics was reiterated in Lagos. It was a need to have a new currency which should be called Naira and kobo.
You may ask what relationship the Nigerian currency has with the quest for Igbo presidency. You should know that currencies do not emerge ordinarily. Otherwise, countries colonized by others would be allowed to figure out their preferred currency before independence other than retaining the sovereignty of their colonizers. Now, for a country that has just survived a three year war, changing to a new currency was not the need of the hour. Britain did not object to this view because the purpose agreed to the British intention for the Igbo. Guess the meaning of Naira and kobo:
NAIRA: Never Allow Igbo To Rule Again.
KOBO: Kill OJUKWU before Others.
If you doubt the meanings above for the Nigerian currency, you may find time to see General Obasanjo. Obasanjo was the first president who had loved to give the Igbo a chance. He tried to break through, despite his multiple tour to England trying to make Britain understand the jeopardy the country is into for insisting upon this hard way. But Britain refused. He confinded in his closest Igbo friend who had led the delegation to his office on the issue of Igbo presidency and told him that Igbo have been marked never to be Allowed to rule for fear that they will divide the country if allowed. This is the sole plan of Britain. That is why, it doesn't matter how much the Igbo try or how many times they are slaughtered, as long as Nigeria remains the British toddler, the Igbo will never rule.
That was the situation, it doesn't matter whether you accept it or not; the deal has been reached and the line drawn which no Igbo man, it doesn't matter who, shall attend the level. Asked Obasanjo the reason he took Jonathan as Yar'adua's running mate. Jonathan was a subtitute for the Igbo and he was welcomed as long as he does not belong to the core: Kill OJUKWU before Others.
