Infrastructural Loan: Igbo Group SOREST Threatens Court Action Over Exclusion Of South East

An Igbo activist group, the South East Response Team (SOREST) has protested the exclusion of the mainly-Igbo South East geopolitical zone in an infrastructural development plan backed by loans the Federal Government of Nigeria has applied for. The preassure group has threatened to go to court if the South East remains excluded.

Recall that recently, the Federal Government applied for a loan of $22.7B for infrastructural projects cut across Nigeria’s geopolitical zones. But analysis shows the South East wasn’t included.

A quick look shows that Southwest zone will get $200,000,000.00 while South-South, excluding Edo State, will get $4,270,000,000.00.

The North West will get $6,372,000,000.00. The Northeast will get $300,000,000.00 while North Central will get $6,531,000,000 while $5,853,900,000.00 is allocated for general expenses.

In a press conference held in Enugu, the national coordinator of SOREST, Comrade Aku Obidimma stated; “We wish to once more reiterate our call on President Mohammed Buhari, the parliament and the international creditors to immediately put a hold to this transaction.

“Let the project spread for this loan to be reviewed to significantly capture the South East zone. Unless this is done, SOREST will be bound to take every necessary legal step towards ensuring that the loan is not accessed”.

Igbo Don Faults Planned Sale Of Sacred Igbo Sculptures ‘Removed During Nigeria-Biafra War’

An Igbo professor, Mazi Chika Okeke-Agulu has spoken out strongly against the planned sale of some Igbo alusi in Paris. Auction house Christies has announced plans to auction the sacred statues.

But Okeke-Agulu, a professor of African Art History at Prinston University, USA, is having none of that. In an interview reported by The Guardian, he says:

“The original acquisition was rooted in violence. These objects are from my hometown, removed from places around eastern Nigeria during the [Nigeria-Biafra] War.


“What we’re seeing now is the continuing benefit from that original act of violence, which is an extension of that violence.”

The monetary value of the sculptures is estimated at between €250,000 and €350,0000 (£227,000-£317,000). That is NGN 170m. They were acquired under mysterious circumstances by French art collector Jacques Kerchache.

Many alusi sculptures were systematically stolen during the war from Mbari houses – shrines ardoned with symbolic murals that house sculptures of Igbo deities.

Anyone who illegally acquired Igbo and other African artworks should please, please and please return them. The Igbo and other African Peoples should also play their part by promoting justice, peace, and fairplay.

If there is unity, people with anti-African plans will find it difficult to manipulate Africans.
