Formality and decorum in service of Biafra

02 July 2014, 11:03 Onyeji Dominic

"I am not writing to agree or disagree with director Nnamdi Kanu. However, what I have to say in this regards is that Kanu had never said that he knew 100% of everything in 100% of the time. Rather he said that he was working for the people of Biafra," said Wilsom Bonfere. I am not actually against what he said here. He had only aired his view to the public. He maybe right in certain way but he cannot tell us that he does not know what it really takes to work for a people in liberation process of a nation. If one is conversant with Bible, one should know why children of Israel asked Moses, "Who made you a leader over us?"

One truth in Biafra is that our Moses is dead. Everybody knew him as Ojukwu a.k.a Ikemba of Nnewi. It is equally known to the general public that Ralph Uwazurike suceeded him duly, officially and formally. It means that Nnamdi Kanu or whoever has no right to lead or work as leader in Biafra without official approval of Uwazurike in support of the people. I mean nobody has right to take up any leadership position just like that. It is not done.

The people have to understand that serving or working for Biafra calls for decorum and formality. Things have to be done normal in liberation process of every nation. One cannot just emerge from nowhere to assume a leadership position of a country. I said, "It is not done in a land of wisdom like Biafra." Things can never work like that in Biafra - great land of the wise. We (the wise in Biafra) do not encourage the junta and any other form of imformal leadership under the Sun.

Biafra is a great land of the wise where things are bound to be done normal. That is what I know as an erudite seer from East where Sun rises. As far as the wise are concerned there shall be no abnormal things in leadership process of Biafra.

As a matter of reality, it is evident that every palace is corrupt under the Sun. Everybody knows it. What I am saying is that the devil we know is better than the angel we don't know.

So, let the people remember that all the lizards are lying flat. We are all like fishes in rivers. If I may ask! Who among us (Biafrans) is a saint? If we ask me, I will say that formality and decorum are the only saints we have under the Sun, and Biafrans cannot form a formal government outside the palace of Ezendigbo gburu gburu. Mark my words and quote me anywhere!
