MI TO IGBOS: “We love you, you are part of us; ignore Buhari’s threat”


Nigerian rapper MI Abaga has weighed-in on the threat that was issued by Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, June 1, targeted at those who are hell bent on destroying the country.

President Buhari had earlier taken to Twitter to state that he intends to treat those who are too young to understand what occurred during the civil war in a “language they will understand”.

“Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War. Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand,” President Buhari posted on Twitter.

Reacting to the post by President Buhari, MI stated that the president has continued to cause a division amongst the Nigerian people following the statement that he released on his Twitter platform on Tuesday.

According to him, the Igbos are pivotal members of Nigerian society, hence, the president ought never to deride them.

He said; “I can’t imagine being an Igbo citizen and seeing those tweets yesterday. I can’t imagine the way it would have made them feel. So I thought it would be beautiful today to tell our Igbo brothers and sisters that we love them.

“We cannot fix the years of pain; we cannot fix that feeling of not being wanted or being loved. That is not going to be the narration of our generation.”

“We love you, you are part of us. This is for my manager Abuchi, Don Jazzy, D Prince, Chidinma, Blackbonez, Phyno, Flavour, Kelechi Amadi, so many people that have given so much to this country, we love you and we stand with you today. We are Igbo too. Bless,” MI added.
