An act of humility for backing

07 July 2014, 13:10 Onyeji Dominic

"Onyeji Dominic owes nobody any apology..." Biafran Prince remarked. He made this as a comment on one of my articles titled, "SINCERE APOLOGY TO THE PEOPLE!!!" It was an hearty remark presented in simple words. He made himself very clear, and it was obvious that he did not speak out of sentiment or pretense. He was honest because his words were well tailored to show that he was speaking or writing from the heart.

I do not really need to make long explanation in this regards. It is true that the message requires me to open up but let me just say thanks for the opportunity. One may not understand why I have to say thanks.

The point remains that Biafran Prince is a truly royal figure in Biafra. This remark he made here is not ordinary. It made great sense, and that is why I truly regard him for what he is in Biafra.

My respect! Homage to the throne that shall sure be! Great regards to the Prince of the people! It is true that we are passing through jungle (wilderness) as pilgrims. The fact remains that the good lord shall surely help us to reach our home - Biafra! His crowns and blessings shall not elude us. This is my hearty prayer for us all in the struggle.

As a matter of fact, wise ones everywhere know that Dsage lives in me, and nature has him as a lion of light just like Jesus who was described in Bible as lion of Judah. I do not really have to tell anybody that I belong to lionfold of light. What I have to say here is that lions are naturally known for pride. They are kings of the forest, and nature does not give them to bend low to anybody under the Sun. It is not done. I mean there is nothing like gentle or humble lion anywhere under the Sun. Everything in lionfold is marked for pride, bravery and what have you. It means that one can hardly get help from the people if one remains as a lion with all the pride and kingly airs in jungle.

One may not understand me here if one lacks discretion. What I really want us to know is that Jesus was a lion but Biblical story also told us that he once or twice "acted" as a shepherd. It meant that there were times when he needed help, backing, fund or finance from the public. The situation at those points required him to disrobe himself as a king of the forest. He had to remove his kingly garment and dress like a sheep in order to seek help from the people who are afraid of lions in jungle. It is known to the wise as an act of humility for backing in jungle.
