Frog eaters of circumstance

17 October 2013, 09:23 Onyeji Dominic Uzoech

The situation of things in Nigeria is stirring great evil out of men. Things have been going bad and the bad condition has been propelling or compelling souls to go downhill.

Millions of Nigerians are wasting away due to mere down in economy. Insight reveals it and intuition whispers it to the wise everywhere that limbo is full of African minds, and Nigeria is seen as a giant in Africa. Greater number of Nigerians is languishing in decadence. They are groping in darkness because they lack mental brushing. The ones who seem to be smart are crooked and deceitful. Why?

Sir Warrior knew what he saw before he got the thought provocation to compose his songs. He was a great Igbo musician in Nigeria. He sang high-life in Igbo Language long ago, and one of his songs was like a candid advice in form of music. He sang it in Igbo Language that anybody who likes or wishes to eat frog should endeavour to eat the very fat ones. That is one of the reasons Igbo people are good frog-eaters. We are everywhere in the world eating frogs. Very fat ones! It is not a secret. Everybody knows that Igbo people are adventurous. We are business people, and there are no business without risk, are there?

I am saying all these as official and formal rejoin to the article I read in News24 Nigeria. It was a home truth written by Fredrick Nwabufo, and the titled was "The Igbos I hate!"  I like the article. It is a holy truth. In fact, the writer deserves standing ovation. He was very correct to say that Igbo people are criminals. Yes!!! That is what we are. Bandits and crooks! But let me ask: why are we given to crime?

"If the foundation is corrupt what shall the righteous do?" asked the Holy Pundit. What is one expected to do when one is pushed to the wall? How many times did Nigeria push Biafra to the wall?

Igbo people are criminals. Yes! Why are they embracing crime? If things are upright and straight in Nigeria, would anybody be crooked and bent?

I've never seen a soul who is comfortable in to bondage or slavery. Igbo people are treated as strangers and slaves in Nigeria. That is why they are resorting to crime for survival. Man is bound to wriggle out whenever he finds himself in a tight corner. Elders said, "Bad condition made crayfish to bend."

Ask the wise! They will tell you that contemporary society is bound to thrive when corrective measures are fully functional. Things like retardation, backwardness, evil and corruption are driven, curbed or curtailed by use of natural tools. Man is mischievous and excessive. He is likely to pass his boundaries and live like wild animals in jungle (free world) if there are no restrictions to excesses. Control measures are very important in contemporary world, and life cannot really do without them because most men these days are not mentally sound. We have millions of soul who are seen everywhere living like the blind in third-world. Their physical eyes are wide opened. But they lack qualities like discernment and insight due to retardation, backwardness and mediocre-living.

Man as a living being is prone to evil. He exists in a wild and wicked world and his ways are not straight. Everything in his environment including his fellow man appears to be deceptive, crooked, erroneous and misleading. He was created to live in a natural habitat like other living things (animals and plants) and he has natural tendencies (inclinations) which make or compel him to adapt to changes easily.

A thing like observation or research reveals that world is changing naturally and man is not meant to be static or stagnant in existence. His adamic nature is both subtle and adamant, and he is wilful; he likes to live freely in the changing world. Experience and history show that most men are very likely to change with world in every direction. Earth is full of evil, enticement and temptation. So, if measures are not effectively put in place to check or curb evil in contemporary society, man might grow too wild and become pragmatic to evil. He is a free moral agent. Every little thing in his environment can influence him, and he is most likely to change with evil in this material world. It is obvious that man usually grow too wild when there are no restrictions to curtail or curb excesses. Human being is not mentally sensitive especially here in Nigeria where retardation and backwardness are heavily at work. Who was born to be a slave? Why won’t Biafrans resort to vile and crime when they are treated like strangers and slaves in Nigeria?

Let Nigerian be warned and beware! Barfrans are spoiling Nigeria just like God commanded Israelite to spoil Egypt prior to Exodus. Read Bible and be wise! Read Mosaic stories to know how divinity works in liberation of nation. Amalgamation expires next year, February 2014, and it marks the eternal end of One-Nigeria as a nation. Biafrans prepared to leave whether devils like it or not.
