Original root of the problems in Biafra

12 September 2013, 15:26 Onyeji Dominic

Biafra has been a nation bound in Nigeria. Everybody knows this. If you ask me, I will say it plainly that we are not citizens in Nigeria because there are standing indications and clear evidence to show that we are being treated as strangers in the country. We are captives in Nigeria just like Israelite was captives in Biblical Babylon. Amalgamation has been on Biafran neck as yoke or stronghold.

By the way, I am not digressing. Let me say that there are many wise sayings in life. We have so many words of wisdom on earth, and they originated from divinity. One of them says, "Rome was not built in a day." True! The building of nation is majorly based on formality, advancement and civilization.

Truth is that Biafra is bound to stand as a sovereign nation. We've passed several stages or steps. God is helping us to reach and pass the next level. What is the next level? I have never seen anything or person who is bound for life. Captivity is not meant to last forever, is it? Bible is a Supreme and Supernatural book of law. King Solomon was a Supreme oracle. He state in Bible that there is time for everything. There is time to be bound, and there is time to be free. Nigerians and Biafrans, please, let somebody tell us! What time is this? If you ask me, I will say it wisely like a holy Sage that I see help coming from above. God is out to liberate Biafra just like he liberated Israel in Bible.

Let us remember that Chinua Achebe, a Biafran sage and seer, saw things falling apart, and it had come to pass just like he purported or predicted in his story titled, “THINGS FALL APART”. We're now seeing things falling in the right just like I once said in one of my articles titled, "THINGS HAD FALLEN APART". God is making all things beautiful. He is a perfect Builder. He remains the Chief Architect and Builder of universe. He is building with us, building Biafra to stand in glory, power and wisdom.

One obvious fact is that change is coming! That is the next thing we need and long to have as a nation. Positive change! I see it coming from above. It is so great a change for good.

Truth is that there is no sensible Biafran who does not knows the source or root of our problem in Biafra. It is just that hypocrites are everywhere. Nigeria has grown too wide with evil and most men are groping in darkness seeking for survival by all means. Evil and corruption are prevailing, and people are naturally forced to earn their living by hook and by crook. Sabotage and mediocrity have been the major issue, and things starting going bad right from onset. We cannot deny the fact that amalgamation is fraudulent and evil. It still remains as stronghold and root of all the evils in Nigeria.

People who are busy throwing blames on leaders are doing so because they are naturally moved. Their acts of criticism are natural because God is out to correct the great mistake that was made by Britain. If we ask the wise, they we tell us that divinity is the origin or source of every authority and organization. Things like leadership and power are shattered and marred when they are not divinely recognized.

One-Nigeria is an entity just like every legal organization in the world. The problem is the Heaven did not approve of it. God did not recognize the amalgamation of One-Nigeria because it was a fraudulent mistake. Heaven originally wanted Britain to create two countries – Biafra and Nigeria, not One-Nigeria. This was why Nigeria has being going bad right from beginning. If you ask me, I will say it bluntly just like I once said in one of my previous articles. What did I say previously? It is only a big fool that needs insight to know that people like Nnamdi Azikwe (Zik), first president of Nigeria and Rochas Okorocha, present governor of Imo State, are downright disgrace to Igbo people as a tribe. I see people like these as educated mediocrities or intelligent fools. If you've "eyes", you'll see that Rochas Okorocha is going downhill, the same way Zik went.

Ask yourself, "What is good, and which good thing had come out of Zik and his generation since he signed the amalgamation of One-Nigeria?" I see his generation wasting away in limbo. People like Zik have been going downhill because they were the real causes of our problems today, not people like Ralph Uwazuruike the likes.

Rochas Okorocha has been condescending like a disoriented politician. He is only good at stooping low because his mentality is very low and foolish. He went from presidential to gubernatorial, and now I see him is stooping so low to enemies for cheap benefit like a local saboteur. The change!
