Who loves Biafra more than Barr. Debe?

11 November 2013, 15:47 Onyeji Dominic Uzhoechi

"I love Biafra!" That is what everybody says. Great and passionate love for a nation that was and will be! If I may ask, what is love? Please, if you don't know, go to the wise and pay heed. They will tell you that nobody loved Biafra more than Ojukwu, the late Moses of Biafra, and nobody can love Ojukwu more than his son (heir) Barr. Debe. "Biafrans, you can’t love me more than my first son, can you?" I heard Ojukwu screamed in death.

There are many things people cannot understand when their thinking and morality are low. Shallow minded people are not learned. That is why they are far from wisdom and positive thinking. Their minds set are poor and down. So, how can they reason well?

Truth is that it takes high moral and rational mind to know that love is formality when it concerns a nation. It flows in hierarchy, beginning from top to bottom. Everybody knew that Ojukwu was highest in Biafra. He has passed away. So, who is highest in the hierarchy now? Who??? If you don't know, ask the wise.

What I know is that Debe is not a fool. He cannot betray his father's dream because nobody can love Ojukwu more than his heir, first born of his blood. Never!

People who are speaking against Barr Debe in the struggle are empty-headed and selfish politicians, if not saboteurs. They are mediocrity who does not know their onions in the struggle. If they truly know what they are doing, it should be clear to them that Debe is a professional. He is practicing his legal profession wisely in line with the struggle. He knows his onions, and everything he is doing is right because the ways of Biafra is not right and straight now. We are going uphill, and ways are crooked and rough in jungle. We cannot condemn anybody in the struggle because there is nothing good in both Biafra and Nigeria now. What is good? Who is good among us? Let him or her go ahead to destroy Barr. Debe.

“Ojukwu who we knew could never betray his people. Ojukwu is APGA, and APGA is Ojukwu. Hence one wonders why a son who claims to be next to his father in this struggle will go against what his father stood for which is APGA. Is that not insanity?” Marrius Ekezie rejoined. “Please, we (Ndigbo) are wise. Every action has implication,” he added.

There were several replies from Biafrans concerning this issue. It was posted on facebook and Marrius Ekezie was among those who opposed it. Another notable comment came from Engr Obioha Ezekwesiri Ict, the Joshua of Biafra. He said that our guilding principle as agitators must be based on laid down constitutions and laws. “We cannot base our Judgment on an issue of this magnitude merely on common sense which differs among individuals. OJukwu joined Politics when he returned from 13 years exile. Does it mean he have compromise? Or are we trying to be more Holier than the Pope?” he rejoined

Truth is that I am not a partisan. I do not play politics because I was divinely called to serve as mouthpiece of divinity. I am not a politician, and I do not support evil. But if I may ask! How do we wash our dirty pot when we don't have money to by things like Vim and iron sponge to scrub it? I mean why do most people use dirty sand to wash their dirty pots? I ask these because people are pretentious. We are not sincere to ourselves.

Many people pretend in public as if they do not make negative efforts to wriggle out of tight corners. Sorry! I am too blunt! Let us (Biafrans) continue looking for Vim and medicated soap. Sand is not good for scrubbing our pots. Udo!!! If we condemn Barr Debe simply because of his act of campaign for Ngige in APC, how sensible and wise are we? It doesn’t make any sense, does it?
