Charly Boy Eccentric star writes President Buhari on Biafra agitation, military operation

Charlie Boy pens open letter to President Buhari

Once again, Charlie Boy is speaking out over the state of things in this country but this time his open letter is addressed to President Muhammadu Buhari over Biafra and related issues.

The eccentric star has called on the President to stop being a sectional leader in an open letter he made available to Daily Post.
Charly Boy urged Buhari to be committed to diffusing the tension in the South East and promoting peace and unity across the country.

He, however, frowned at the ongoing military exercise at the South East tagged, “Operation Python Dance II.”
In the open letter to the President Charly Boy released on Tuesday, September 19, the entertainer warned against another Civil war while recalling the terrible condition people of the South East were subjected to during the first civil war.
Read the letter below:
 “My president,”
“I bare my heart out in this letter with great respect and humility.
“Often times, I wonder if you read any of my open letters. However, I write this open letter so fellow Nigerians will understand the ache in my heart.
“I was about 17yrs during the Nigerian civil war. My youth was scandalized, and since then, I have carried a big scar in my heart. All I saw around me then, was blood, death, and hunger. That war, which could have been avoided, was a collateral damage for easterners. Over Three million people died – when it could have been resolved on a conference table.
“Mr. President Sir. Most Nigerians, are hopeless, helpless, fearful, aggrieved and have been brutalized by poverty created by the status quo to terrorize my people.
“When you came on board I had hoped that yours would be a government that would assist the ordinary people; a government that will turn round the economy and put a smile on the faces of Nigerians.
“No, I don’t blame you for the woes that have befallen us, but, truth be told, you have so far spent too much time passing the buck than actually serving the people you struggled to lead. Two years is enough for us to start feeling like something would happen. I can’t believe that as hard and as many times as you applied for this job and you finally got it, this is the best you can do? Haba, baba!
“Now you can see the disadvantage of surrounding yourself with incompetent people.
“I remember it was your wife who first cried out, warned us that you have been hijacked by the hyenas, jackals, and very suspicious people who don’t really care about Nigeria or you.
“Sir, as a father, please do something to calm down this rising tension.

“As a father, it is very wrong to show your children that you have a favorite. Right now, it is clear that we are in a Big Mess. And sometimes I wonder if you understand how difficult it is for the masses to cope. People even from your village have complained to us (OurMumuDonDo movement); From Sokoto to Owerri, Benue to Delta, hunger everywhere, young people committing suicide, yet the legislators and executives still maintain their obnoxious lifestyle.
“There is so much I want to say as a very frustrated Nigerian, but for now what’s uppermost in my heart is to plead with you to intervene in this “Operation Python Dance” Biko Baba, you should be committed to dousing tensions and promoting peace and unity.
“In as much as I am aware that the Federal Government is concerned about curbing divisive messages and inordinate agitations within the country, I believe it should be more concerned about safeguarding the lives and properties of all Nigerians in any part of the country.
“It is also important to note that though recanted, the October 1 ultimatum issued by some misguided northern youths to the Igbos in the north remains weighty in the minds of many and the atmosphere is hypersensitive to any mishap that could foment such inter-ethnic wahala.
“Sir, suffering Nigerians are begging you to quell this tension than steaming up the flames of enmity and discord within the country by using force on harmless citizens.
“During The Resume or Resign peaceful protest, Baba, you listened, and that’s why you came back.
“On behalf of all frustrated, hopeless, unsafe, hungry Nigerians I beg you, hear our prayer. As a Father show some compassion and give us hope that this too shall pass away.
“I am proud to say that am discovering exceptional youths who are inflamed by love of fatherland, angered at the rape of our dignity and prosperity, determined to rise up and hold one another, to march down and uphold the dignity and prosperity of all Nigerians.
“Baba, make Naija no spoil for your hand O!!!!!!”

Charlie Boy Oputa has always the blunt in his assessment of critical situations in the country and his voice has rang loud and clear in rebuke or praise as the case required.
This case is no different, as this open letter to the president/presidency joins a long list of others.
