I have told Biafrans severally that they are not really doing well to foster their freedom. We see them everywhere longing to liberate their country from Nigeria but their actions and doings in general do not portray them as serious people in this regards.
Let me inform the public once again that Ohanaeze Ndigbo as a forum knows what to do for liberation of Biafra. The leaders there are still playing dirty games of politics. If we ask me, I will say it plainly that they are not ready to liberate Biafra. That is why the throne of Igbo is still vacant, and nobody is wearing the red cap.
Sorry to the people of Biafra! They have throne but nobody is seated on it as a real head like Biblical Joshua who led and directed Israelite to their land of Promise those days.
One thing the people should know is that freedom is not a gift of nature. It is rather a process in nature. The system requires upward movement which is known to the wise as "progress". It means that there are steps, stages or levels for Biafrans as a people in jungle.
Our major problem is mental blindness. We (Biafrans) have not generally understood that freedom is struggle or battle of life in formality. If we ask me, I will say that Biafrans as a people is stagnated in valley of shadow and mirage. I have not really seen us making progress collectively as a people. The progress I see in Biafra is selfish, foolish and dubious. I see us in total disarray planting beautiful flowers in strange lands.
The rich among us have mansions, edifices, towers and companies everywhere in the strange land. We see them as tycoons, dons and property owners. Their landed properties are scattered all over Nigeria and beyond but their villages and home towns remain undeveloped and retarded in many ways. They are only good in developing strange lands individually or privately.
The people of Biafra are just scattered in jungle; every man on his own ways! That is our major flaw. No king! No head! No leadership! No direction! No movement in jungle! It means that we are not pilgrims.
Truth is that people can never "reach" their Promise land without progress, pilgrimage or movement in jungle. We cannot liberate Biafra without collective effort made in formality. The term "formality" requires a real figure or personality on the throne. There must be a real head to direct the people. That is one step in the struggle.
