How many of us are still creative?

14 October 2014, 20:32 Onyeji Dominic

There are two popular cities marked for creativity in Biafra-Nigeria a.k.a One-Nigeria. The two are globally known for productivity, creativity and what have you. It is not news because everybody knows that Onitcha and Aba are ancient cities of creative minds in Biafra under the Sun. I have to use the term "ancient" because it is obvious that the creativity of Biafra is now at the ebb. Everything has remained on the decline. We see it as deterioration and decadence. This is because the minds do not really have the means, facilities, utilities and resources to "improve" for the creativity, productivity and what have you in Biafra under the Sun. That is why I have to ask: How many of us are still the creative minds we used to be in Biafra those days? Where are the products and goods made in Biafra - great land of the wise? What and what do we really need for the creativity and productivity in Biafra?

Please, one should not be offended with me if one thinks that I am being too inquisitive in nature. I have to ask because I know what I see as an erudite seer from East under the Sun. If we ask me, I will say it once again like I said before in my previous write ups. I mean let us open our eyes wide and look into the jungle of Biafra. If we truly have eyes, we will see that Biafra and Creativity are married in the Supernatural. The marriage requires us (Biafrans) to train, educate and enlighten our minds in order for us to truly manifest and shine as real Superstars; creative and intellectual minds of Biafra both in Africa and beyond.

Let me ask again for the last time! How many of us truly know our onion? We have millions of graduates roaming about the streets of Nigeria, seeking for jobs in Whiteman companies which they built to exploit our father's lands. We are working too hard for the white in our lands, and they are paying us peanuts. Why??? I mean what stopped us from establishing our own companies for goods or products made in Biafra? I want somebody to come up here and tell us: How many of us are still creative in the Supernatural side of Biafra under the Sun???
