Biafran mantle of leadership

17 January 2014, 16:37

 Umunne, fellow Biafrans,
I am not trying to repeat myself here.  I know that I have told us severally that I am a mouthpiece of divinity, a Mass Servant to Biafra. Every wise fellow knows that a medium is a link, not a source.

I have heard our questions. They sounded in my ears as heart beat of the people. This means that Biafrans are speaking their minds.

Let me remain us that Biafra has ears and eyes. He has heard us, and the answer is simple. What is simple? Look well! You're a wise brain, aren't you? I do not see any foolishness in most of us. If we look in wisdom, we will see that there is nothing like mantle of leadership in RBL, SNC and BILIE. Somebody has to convey, transfer or vest the mantle formally. Who is the person? I mean who passed authority over to these bodies mentioned above? If we have eyes we will see that they are all like shadows of authority. Ask me why? I will tell us that the mantle is still resting on MASSOB.

Things like authority and power are meant to be vested and transferred in formality and divine approval. Ojukwu and the people vested power on Ralph Uwazurike. What I am saying here is that liberation of Biafra may not work because majority is kicking against the brisk. They have only succeeded in kicking away the mantle from Ralph Uwazurike. I see it lying waste in MASSOB. 

Let us open our eyes and look in wisdom as seers. What can we see? If you ask me! I will say that I see nobody bearing the mantle of leadership. This was what I meant in one of my articles titled, "IGBO WITHOUT HEAD!"
Truth is that the mantle dropped from Uwazurike because the people are no longer giving their supports to him. Nobody has power to pick the mantle because Uwazuike still reserves the right. Things have to be done formally.
