Scattered sheep without a shepherd

24 June 2014, 13:31

One thing I have to tell the people is that liberation of nation is a process in nature. It is revealed to the wise as a journey. We see three major things which include the land of promise, distance to cover in the pilgrimage, and condition, arrangement or organization of the pilgrims. These are things that determine or prepare ground for divine intervention in liberation of a people.

One may not understand but let me just say that distance for us (Biafrans) to cover is still too long. Insight revealed that we are not together as a people, and we are not really making progress in the pilgrimage. It is not a question of who to lead. The issue is that the people are not together. They are still scattered like sheep without a shepherd. This is what I see under the Sun.

I have said this before. Let me say it again that we (Biafrans) are not ready to make real progress for good in the struggle. Majority of us are still chasing shadow, aiming at mirage, working for food and longing for Manna in wilderness of limbo. It means that the people (Biafrans) are both scattered and lost in jungle of misery. They still have long way to "trek" in hell.

My joy is that I do not speak in tongues, and I am not a grammarian like Prof. Wole Soyinka. Everything I say is evident, clear, simple and understandable. So, if they like, let them go to hell. What I know is that Biafrans are not fools, and fools among us are not part of Biafra. Our father's land is known to divinity as a great land of the wise.
