Mantle of Igbo kingdom

19 June 2014, 10:03 Onyeji Dominic

I have told the public that Ugly Duckling lives in me. I said it many times that divinity ordained him in uphill to serve humanity as a medium. I do not have to remind us that he is an erudite seer from East where Sun rises. If we ask me, I will tell us once again that I was with the wise in realism. They told me that every kingdom has a mantle of leadership. When I looked in Igbo land of Biafra, I saw mantle of the kingdom laying waste in official forum known to the people as MASSOB.

The mantle I saw belonged to Igbo kingdom. I went back to the wise in realism, and they told me that Barr Ralph Uwazurike bore the mantle but the people kicked at the brick. It was their revolt and rebellion that caused the mantle to drop from the official bearer, Ralph Uwazurike. I said this to the people severally in my write ups but they did not pay heed to the wise. One of my articles they read in this regards was titled "MANTLE OF LEADERSHIP!"

What the people should know is that nobody has power to pick the mantle without the consent or approval of the original bearer. That was what the wise told the Ugly Duckling in realism. It means that Igbo kingdom has no head or king due to majority rejection of their King in MASSOB.
