No country due to disunity and public folly

31 July 2014, 14:37 Onyeji Dominic

"Who has time to read all these lengthy posts?" Michael Joseph commented on one of my posts which he saw on facebook. I know that he is not a fantastic idiot but let me just say that his common sense is heavily damaged in limbo of downhill. It is a pity that his precious time is lost and wasted for nothing under the Sun. I do not really have to say it because it is obvious that people like him are too many in Biafra-Nigeria. We see them everywhere and they are always too busy doing nothing just like he said here. That comment he made showed that his time and days are gone forever. I know it but let me just use this as opportunity to remind us that one thing about Africa this days is that the minds and countries are badly retarded due to lack of "burning desire" for sound education. It is obvious that the black as a people in general has been wandering in darkness which is described in wisdom as backwardness. This is true in many ways.

The souls are lost in downhill as a result of lack of light, illumination or knowledge. The social problems are fully known to divinity. That was why I got ordination in the Supernatural. I mean I have said it severally and publicly that I was divinely delegated to rekindle the burning desire for sound education in Africa and beyond. The job and mission require many hands and public support.

Furthermore, I am the Ugly Duckling a.k.a Dsage. I have dreams but I am not a dreamer because my dreams are dreamed naturally. What I know is that I have divine plans to effect changes in the positive. I have said it severally to the people, and I know that their ears are not deaf in downhill where their souls are wasting away under the Sun.

I do not have any need to keep on lamenting because my words are not taken. The people have been too hard of hearing, and it appears as if one is just pouring precious water on wasted stones in decadence. That has been the situation all the way. Stiff naked minds in jungle all the long! It was their heady and senseless behaviors that moved Chinua Achebe to write sagacious stories about Biafra-Nigeria those days.

"THERE WAS A COUNTRY" - an epic novel by Chinua Achebe. So many people had read it but only few got the message. I mean there are many people who can never read meanings into a book that was written in simple words of wisdom.

"There was a country," the renowned seer said to the people in jungle. If I may ask! What does that mean? If we ask me, I will say it bluntly that Achebe saw downright disunity in Biafra, and the ugly situation told him that the country had "gone" forever. It simply means that there "is" no country ... ... ... due to disunity and lack of one-people under the Sun. Sorry to the people!

The fact remains that Biafrans as a people are questionable in many ways. We see the signs and emblems boldly written under the Sun - ?????...??????????... ... Endless questions without any good answer from anywhere!  #JUSTASKING-&-NO-ANSWERING#. Too bad of the people under the Sun! Sorry

I have to say sorry to the people because they have deliberately chosen to remained stagnant and retarded in the jungle. Their actions and doings had made things to get out of hands. That is why there is still "no country" just like Chinua Achebe told us in his stories long ago. No country due to lack of one-love and one-people with many hands to carry Biafra from captivity. I said sorry to the stiff naked people in decadence!
