IPOB Condemns Civic Education Textbook Approved By Ministry Of Education, Gives Ultimatum For Withdrawal | READ WHY

A separatist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has kicked against a civic education textbook titled “Fundamentals of Civic Education for Basic 8 (JSS 2), approved for use in Nigerian secondary schools by the Federal Ministry of Education.

IPOB in a statement issued by it’s spokesman on media and publicity, Emma Powerful, said the book authored by Sola Akinyemi distorted history and sponsors ethnic hatred by describing the Igbos as troublemakers and invaders of Ife kingdom, in Yoruba land.

The group while noting that the Igbos has never in history nor present invaded any tribe, demanded that the ministry of education withdraws Akinyemi’s book from school curriculum.

IPOB warned that failure to do as requested within two weeks, the Igbos will take actions to cut off the book from schools in the south east.


The global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our Supreme Leader, prophet, and indefatigable liberator, Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU condemn in totality the false history labeling Ndigbo as invaders and trouble makers in a book authored by Sola Akinyemi and approved by the Ministry of Education in Civic Education curriculum titled “Fundamentals of Civic Education for Basic 8 (JSS 2)”.

The current Minister of Education, a tribalist, and the Yoruba author are masterminding an ethnic hatred against Ndigbo by distorting history in the Civic Education subject. This Yoruba bigot author named Sola Akinyemi must be demented by demonizing the entire Igbo Nation in his treacherous book as invaders and troublemakers to brainwash Nigerian Children against Ndigbo.

The Nigerian Ministry of Education to approve such ethnic hate-based textbooks that describe “NDI IGBO “as invaders and troublemakers is very disappointing and unfortunate.

In the history of Nigeria, there is no record that Ndigbo has invaded nor attempted to conquer any other tribe, now or in the past. Ndigbo has never had a history of invading other tribes. But because of hatred and bigotry against the Igbo tribe, the Ministry of Education under the fulani government and leadership of Yoruba cabals have introduced a book in primary school describing Ndigbo as trouble makers and invaders. This is not only wicked but also to brainwash non-Igbo children to hate Ndigbo.

We demand the removal of such distorted history books from Nigeria schools. We equally demand that the Ministry of Education and the author of the book organize a public debate and lecture Nigerians and the World on this false history of Igbos invasion of Ife kingdom. Moreso, we demand that educators, the State Ministry of Education, headmasters and headmistresses, and propriators of Igbo extraction lead a petition to demand the removal of this ethnic hate-based book from education curriculum. In the event that the bigotry of the government of Nigeria and her education ministry refuse to remove the book from all their schools, then Ndigbo would abolish such an evil book from schools in the Eastern Region.

At the expiration of 14 days from the release of this press statement, if the government does not withdraw the treacherous book titled “Fundamentals of Civic Education for Basic 8 (JSS 2) authored by traitor “Sola Akinyemi”, we order Ndigbo both young and old, big and small to locate the books in our region, the Eastern Region and burn them. Again, every IPOB member must help search for this evil and distorted history book and burn every copy found. All schools in the Alaigbo should reject that book and must not allow it to be sold to school children. Igbo parents everywhere in Nigeria must not buy such books that seek us against other tribes in the contraption called Nigeria.

In fact, we call on Ndigbo to reject every book that is authored by this traitor Sola Akinyemi. All his books should be burned anywhere they are found in the East.

It is disgusting to discover that a Yoruba man authored such a book against Ndigbo to brainwash non-Igbo pupils and continue their age-long hatred against Ndigbo. That won’t work for him and his sponsors in this day and age.

The architects of hatred and attack against Ndigbo in the print media, television, social media, and markets now want to nationalize it by including it in the education curriculum?

We hope that every sensible Igbo person has realized that Chief Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu, Mazi Nnamdi KANU, and IPOB have been right with the demand for an Independent Nation of Biafra outside of and away from Nigeria. Every Igbo man and woman must rise up now to defend and support the cause for the restoration of Biafra.

The hatred against Ndigbo is incurable, and the purveyors of this ethnic hatred have gone beyond political exclusion to distorting history to perpetuate their hatred. Biafra Independence remains the only hope for Ndigbo. The more we delay the realization, the more we endanger the future generations of Biafrans.
