Omirhobo Challenges Gowon “Show Evidence Of Your Project In Southeast”

Malcolm Omirhobo, a human rights attorney, has issued a challenge to retired General Yakubu Gowon, the former head of state of the military, asking him to provide documentation of any federal projects his administration carried out in the region of southeast Nigeria following the Biafra civil war many years ago.

On Sunday, Omirhobo shared this via his X account in a post.

He was responding to a recent remark made by Gowon over the Biafran civil war.

“I am happy General Gowon is alive when I am making my assertions.

I challenge Gowon to show evidence of Federal Government repair, rehabilitation or replacement of any of the Hospitals, Markets, Schools, Buildings or Roads destroyed by the intentional bombing by the Nigeria Air Force and their Arab mercenaries after the Nigerian /Biafran war,” Omirhobo said.

“I challenge him to show any Federal Government project that his government established in the Eastern part of Nigeria after the war

I challenge Gowon to show the palliative or financial support that his government gave to the Easterners after the war.

“I need proof of his government’s effort for the Eastern children to catch up with the educational system after missing out for over three years.

I challenge him to show how many Easterners who lost their jobs because of the war were reabsorbed after the war.

“Take It from me, the war ended with Nigeria being the Victor and the Easterners the Vanquished. The (3 Rs) Reconciliation, Reconstruction and Rehabilitation policy of Gowon’s government was by mouth not deed.”

Remember that the former head of state told reporters how he was accused of not being able to prosecute the Biafra civil war following a meeting with President Bola Tinubu?

“If I remember correctly, when I was fighting the war, I was told I was too slow and that probably Nigeria cannot make it and that we should now seek for discussion,” stated Gowon, the president of Nigeria from 1966 to 1975. So, did we succeed or fail? We are presumably there because they are unaware of the subterranean problem.
