Frustration of Elijah in Biafra!

15 October 2014, 10:52

"What happened to that country? Did it vanish or what?" ask Ifeanyi Anorue in facebook group - BIAFRA LIBERATION FORCE (BLF). The question was not ordinary because it came from a thinking mind under the Sun. I saw it as a historic one from the Supernatural.

As a matter of fact, the country was and is. If one has eyes, one will see that Chinua Achebe was demoralized just like Elijah who got frustrated in the struggle those days and asked God to take his life under the Sun. It means that attitude and disunity of the people (Biafrans) did not encourage Achebe to continue in the struggle. He was the real Elijah from East where the Sun rises. The people’s behavior got him frustrated in the struggle. That was why he lost hope, and thought that the country was gone forever. A lost battle! That was his mindset when he wrote the story titled "THERE WAS A COUNTRY". He wrote it sagaciously to tell us that he had quit the struggle just like Elijah did in Bible. He had to give up because it was obvious that the country was gone forever. That was it!

I have said this before. Let me say it again that Biafra lives forever. I see him every day, and the Biafra I see remains the Jesus (Savior) of Africa under the Sun. The vision! The dream! The foresight! That is it! 

Let us hold unto the vision and work towards it for good under the Sun! One-love and one-people with many hands on desk! "Though it may take long! Wait for it patiently. It shall surely come to past," said the dream in Biafra.
