Biafra and Nigeria not as united

11 August 2014, 22:36 Onyeji Dominic

I wrote an article titled "BIAFRA & NIGERIA IN JUNGLE". It was widely published for free reading. The writing was plain and the message was simple. It was quite understandable because I wrote it in simple words of wisdom for laymen at the grassroots.

I spoke in parables in that article and the message gave the people to understand that Biafra and Nigeria have remained like cat and dog under the bound of a strange cord known to the wise as amalgamation. It also made it clear to us that the two are falsely married in jungle, and the marriage is more or less a prison which has no room for anything like peace and progress both in fantasy and reality.

As a matter of fact, I do not have to repeat myself in anyway. I have been able to pass the message, and that is it. I mean it is not important for me to remind us that divinity ordained me in the uphill to serve humanity as a mouthpiece of gods. The facts are evident, and everybody knows that the gods use men as media.

What I actually have to say here is that amalgamation remains like a prison, captivity, bondage and what have you. Insight and sincerity told it to the wise that the cat and dog were yoked together by colonialism since 1914. It is over hundred years, and there has been no progress for both in jungle. That is why the colonial masters are still fully in charge both in fantasy and reality. It is conspicuous that the white are still ruling and controlling One-Nigeria in many ways. They are fully and forcefully exploiting our lands politically, technologically, economically and religiously. This is true because the cat and dog are like prisoners, and nature does not have room for progress in any prison, bondage or captivity under the Sun.

Furthermore, I noticed that some of us have been wondering why our students are not creative, productive and wise. They have been graduating as downright mediocrities, and we see them everywhere roaming about with pseudo-files of pretentious credentials. They are there in every village, town, city and suburbs searching for jobs and waiting for white men to build more companies for them in One-Nigeria. That is very good!

As a matter of reality, it will be nice if the people should stop wondering and just begin to work for futurity and mankind. This is my candid advice to Biafrans in particular. If we ask me, I will say that I see a bright future where Africans rule the world in place of the white who are still ruling us economically, technologically and politically. I mean we should stop being selfish; just wondering about where the situation will takes us individually. Why not think of where it will take our children and the children of our children?

In addition, let us always remember that Rome was not built in a day. What I know is that I am working hard for the better future of Africans in general, not for my future. I know that better days and positive changes are there for Africa. It is not likely to be a rapid change. I mean the bright future of the black cannot come today or tomorrow, and who knows if we may be alive to witness the changes. We just have to start working for it. Just sowing the great seeds for futurity and humanity! Set the pest for others to follow for goodness sake! Lay the solid foundation for others to build when we are no more in life.

Lastly, it will be nice if we remember legends like Math-ma Gandhi of India and Washington of America. They were not selfish during their days, were they? I have to ask because I have never see one-love and one-people in Biafra since I was born. I rather see divisions, hatred and what have you. Sorry!
