Simon Ekpa, a Nigerian athlete who competed in the 2003 African Junior Athletics Championships, has condemned the country and promised to return the gold medal he won for it.
In a Facebook post, he stated that the country’s leaders have failed the country.
Ekpa claims that his actions are in line with his commitment to the banned Indigenous People of Biafra.
He further stated that he will devote “all I have” to the dissolution of Nigeria.
The Biafra militant made the statement in response to a letter he said he got from the Nigerian Institute of Management Consultants nominating him for a fellowship.
“I publicly reject your nomination, this is the second time the IMC-Nigeria has nominated me for whatever reason,” Ekpa said. I’m not interested in your nomination, award, or anything else that will bring Nigeria forward because Nigeria is not organized or created to progress forward, thus anyone attempting to do so is already a failure.
“Let me give you a quick rundown of these failures: Awolowo, Zik, Ahmedu Bello, Abiola, Obasanjo, Jonathan, and every other politician in Nigeria from 1960 to 2021 have all failed because they didn’t realize that Nigeria was never designed to progress.
