Igbo genocide pointer – “left wing”, “right wing” and the histrionics of labelling in these times

Herbert Ekwe-Ekwe

NIGERIA IS Africa’s most notorious genocidist state. Britain created Nigeria in the early 1900s after its conquest and occupation of  the constellation of states of nations and peoples in the southwestcentral region of Africa. A hundred and twenty years on, genocidist Nigeria remains a British client-state, run on its behalf  by the Hausa-Fulani/islamist jihadist north region confederatesIndeed, Nigeria exists principally to serve Britain and this local overseer conglomerate and continues to offer Britain outlandishly excellent returns, as any conceivable socioeconomic/geostrategic index demonstrates, year in, year out. Not surprisingly, the British chief representative in Nigeria spent quite some time in 2017 in a rigorous defence of Britain’s Nigeria (https://www.pambazuka.org/democracy-governance/igbo-are-gone-gone-free, accessed 14 January 2018).

Beginning on Sunday 29 May 1966, Britain, led by the Labour party government under leader and prime minister Harold Wilson, and its Nigeria launched phase-I of the Igbo genocide, the foundational genocide of post(European)conquest Africa. Forty-four months later, by the end of phase-III of the genocide, Britain and Nigeria had murdered 3.1 million Igbo or 25 per cent of this nation’s population. Phase-IV of the genocide has continued subsequently, without let up, with the murder of tens of thousands additional Igbo by the dual-genocidists. For Britain, this genocide is to “punish” Igbo people for the Igbo vanguard role played in the African peoples campaign to terminate the British occupation of these states of Africa during the course of the mid-1930s to October 1960 

What label?

THE BRITISH LABOUR party that led Britain into executing the Igbo genocide, this crime against humanity, is a social democratic/socialist/trade unionist party, democratically elected by the British population in October 1964 in one of the leading West World countries 
– it is “left wing”, egalitarianinclusivist“party of working class/people”, “progressive”, “liberal”, “humanist”, “internationalist”, not the Conservative Party nor “right wing” nor “conservative” nor “party of the oppressor” nor “party of the privileged” nor “party of the rich” nor “party of bankers and landowners” nor “nationalist” nor “nativist” nor  “xenophobic” nor “far right” nor “fascist”...
