"Biafra is not represented in the confab meeting. Why?" asked Chijioke E. Ani. Great question for the people! Here we are!
Let me say that this question was directed to me for reason best known to Chijioke E. Ani. I do not need to find out why he had to ask me a question like this in public.
What I know is that Ojukwu, the late Ikemba of Nnewi, was our "Moses" in Biafran struggle. He represented us (the people) in many accessions and confabs, and we know that he was not a fool at all.
Everybody knows that Ojukwu did not deceive the people in anyway. He meant well for Biafra, and he had good reasons for choosing Barr Ralph Uwazurike to succeed him in the struggle. There is nobody in Biafra who does not know that MASSOB was officially and legally meant to represent Biafra in every way. We know it quite well that Ikemba did not fool us. He meant well for Biafra when he conferred (vested) his power on Uwazurike, the leader of MASSOB.
The problem is that majority of the people got deceived after the death of Ikemba. Certain fools and greedy politicians arose in jungle to play political games. They came up as dark angels in sheep clothing, and their activities were wise enough to lure or attract majority support. They happened to dent (tarnish) the good image of Barr Ralph Uwazurike and so, the people got misled in jungle and turned against MASSOB in rejection.
The truth is that Ralph Uwazurike was dully crowned as King of Igbo land to lead and represent Biafra in every way, occasion and confab. The people rejected him as their King. That is why Biafra is not dully represented in the ongoing nation conference in Nigeria.
Lastly, what I have said here is my personal opinion and answer to the question above. I do not know what any other person has to say in this regards. I have only said my mind in sincerity as a seer for the people under the Sun. Many thanks!
