Sincere apology to the people

03 July 2014, 13:03 Onyeji Dominic

"The world is not a bed of roses," said the wise in realism. This is a true saying. It is true because nothing good has ever at anytime come easy under the Sun. I mean everybody knows that life has not been easy for the people generally both in Biafra-Nigeria and Africa at large. Things have not really been easy, and everybody knows that problems have been ranging and piling up everywhere under the Sun.

The point is that I have really come a long way in uphill struggle. Most people may not understand it but let me just say that I know that I have been too blunt and rash in my writings. It is evident, and I quite understand that bitter medicine is not required for treatment all the time.

The people know that I have written so many articles to address sociopolitical issues concerning Biafran-Nigeria. Most of the people felt bad when they read my write ups. I do not need to say it here that my words are bitter medicines to souls of men in jungle. What I really have to say is sorry to the people. I am using this as a means to sincerely apologize to the public especially the people who thought that I was rude.

In actual fact, a lot of my articles have been widely published in well recognized media. Many of them were too blunt, and there were times when I painted or labelled certain people as big fools in Biafran struggle. They were not sweet words at all, and I knew that so many people did not like my words.

One thing I like the people to know is that there is no fool in Biafra. It is true that I referred to certain people as "Biafran fools". The fact remains that Biafra is great land of the wise. Every wise fellow knows it, and I have made it very clear in many ways especially in one of my articles titled, "BIAFRANS ARE NOT FOOLS!!!"

What everybody should know is that I have never taken anybody as an enemy at any point in time. I have said it before that we have been on stage all the long on facebook acting and debating. The public may not understand it but let us just take it that we (Biafrans) are more or less co-debaters. One may think that we are fighting or quarreling. We are not! What they see as fighting is known to the wise as "mental brushing", not fighting at all.

All the same, let me say it once again that Biafra (our father's land) has been undergoing a cleansing process in Supernatural. It is mentally seen as divine bath. We may not understand it but let's just take it that divinity has been at work like it once happened to Israel those days according to Bible.

One should know that those ugly things in Bible happened to the people of Israel because divinity needed to use them in cleansing of their ways and land. I mean the bad experiences they had those days helped them to learn their lessons. It was after they had learnt their lessons in wilderness (jungle) that freedom finally came. That is what we are experiencing now in Biafra. Supernatural bath in realm of jungle!

Please, let me say it again! I am sincerely sorry for being too blunt and rash to the people. There is no fool in Biafra. Everybody is right in view and opinion. So, let the people accept my hearty apology. I did not really mean it when I said that certain Biafrans are fools. I rather expected the people to count their teeth with their tongues.

Truth is that Biafra is passing through wilderness. All the roads there are crooked, narrow, hard and tough. That is why thieves are many in the struggle according to Biafran Watchdog.

The point is that nobody is truly honest in the struggle because the ways are not straight and right for Biafra in realm of jungle. I have said it before. Let me say it again that there is no saint or goodly angel in any tight-corner. One is bound to wriggle out when one is pushed to the wall or tight-corner. That is why we (Biafrans) must lay hold on formality and decorum in order to reach our land of Promise.

God liberate and bless Biafra! God bless Africa! I am the Ugly Duckling a.k.a Dsage. Many thanks
