The President of Gabon is A Nigerian Boy Adopted During Biafra War

President Ali Bongo Ondimba of Gabon is a confirmed Nigerian from either South-East (Igbo) or any of the South-South (Ijaw) states, adopted by a former leader of Gabon during the Biafran war.

This startling revelation is about to be revealed as a court in western France on Thursday allowed a family member of Ali Bongo Ondimba to view the birth certificate of the leader after accusations that he lied about where he was born.

With next year’s presidential elections approaching, controversy has been brewing over Ali Bongo’s place of birth with critics saying he falsified his birth certificate to hide the fact that he was refugee boy who was adopted from another country – Nigeria.

Sadly, if the facts can be proved in court, it could stop him from running for President of the country again and he will also lose his wealth.

According to Saraha Reporters, the court in Nantes has finally allowed 25-year-old Onaida Maisha Bongo Ondimba, a daughter of the late president, Omar Bongo, to view the documents in full.


Her lawyer Eric Moutet hailed the decision as “enormous”, though “diplomatically complex”.

Ali Bongo is the only one out of ex-president Omar Bongo’s 54 declared heirs not to have produced any of his identification documents.

Ali Bongo assumed the presidency following the death in 2009 of his “father” Omar Bongo, who presided over the west African nation and its oil and mineral wealth since 1967.

The Gabonese constitution says one must be born Gabonese to be the head of state, but French investigative journalist Pierre Pean alleged in a recent book that the president was actually Nigerian and was adopted during the Biafran war in the late 1960s.

Bongo himself claims he was born in Brazzaville in 1959, former capital of French Equatorial Africa.

The Nantes civil registration centre is responsible for all birth certificates of people born in French Equatorial Africa up to 1960, when the former colonial countries in the region gained independence to become Gabon, Congo, Chad and the Central African Republic.

Ali Bongo announced in late August that he would give “all his share of the inheritance” from his father to “the Gabonese youth” in a speech marking the 55th anniversary of independence.
