Isah Saulawa is a friend

16 August 2013, 14:33 Onyeji Dominic

One thing Biafrans must understand is that agreement and negotiation are two different things especially in issues that concern agitation, freedom or liberation. Definitions of both terms are purely different when they concern Biafra at a time like this. Agreement means making friends or friendship for Biafra while negotiation means selling Biafra out to "buyers".

Truth is that Biafra cannot exist or survive in isolation, and Igbos are not going to sell Biafra to any buyer. What we need is agreement, not negotiation. This is because Biafra is christian, and the bible said, "Two cannot work except when they agree."

What am l saying? Biafrans have to agree with Nigerians, and both have to become friendly because nations are not islands. Biafra needs Nigeria and Nigeria needs Biafra. This was why I said that Hon. Isah Saulawa is a friend, a very good friend. We recognize his office because he was officially appointed by Nigeria to serve as overseer and key officer for matters concerning Biafra.

I have said this before. Let me say it again that Hon. Isah Saulawa is not our enemy. The earlier we begin to see him as friend the better. He is not our enemy because he is truthful. If we're sincere to ourselves, we'll agree that everything he has said is true.

Enmity is of Satan, and the devil is a lie. Hon. Isah is not our enemy because his word is not lie.

Let's think and be rational. Ndigbo, I said let's work as wise men that we are! How prepared are Igbos to free Biafra? How united are we? How ready are we? How mature are we? How many Igbos are truly serious with the struggle? Do we really know our onions as agitators? If we can tell ourselves truth and answer these questions frankly, we'll come to know that Hon. Isah is truly a friend in disguise.

Igbo! We're not fools. Let's come to our senses and work as one in divine wisdom. We're wise!
