Wise men like fools! Why?

12 September 2014, 13:46 Onyeji Dominic

I have been looking and thinking. I look because I was divinely ordained to serve as seer. I think because things like insight, intuition and doubt are co-workers in divine vineyard. They work together for good as supernatural kit. I have been looking at things through eyes of divinity, and most of the things I see are down-right ironies.

Truth is that things like irony and paradox are ruling supremely in Africa. They are enthroned in both minds and nations, and it is evident that Biafra and Nigeria are among the worst victims. They are subjected under an evil king (tyrant) known as irony in a fantastic state called limbo.

I went to the wise years ago to have my usual dealings with wisdom. They told me that Biafra is great land of the wise, and that the people (Biafrans) are gems and wizs, great people of renown. I opened my eyes and looked in wisdom. Guess what I saw! Rare diamonds everywhere in Biafra! That was what I saw when I looked in wisdom and great insight.

I went for confirmation, and intuition told me that Biafra is full of best choices and brains. But when I turned and looked in reality, what I saw were like wise fools and benighted lions living and misbehaving in shadows of pretense. Some were sheepish and some were wild in darkness. Why???

I asked myself why because there are still many things that makes me wonder in Biafra. One of them is a popular saying, a generally accepted belief in Igboland of Biafra. What is the saying? If you don't know go to elders of Igboland and ask. They will whisper it to you cynically in Igbo Language: "Igbo enweyi eze!" Meaning! I mean what does it mean? If you do not know go to the people and ask. They will explain it frantically to you because they generally believe that Igbo people are not meant to have any person as their king on earth. This is great irony, isn't it?

I said that I have been looking and thinking. I have also written an article previously in this regards. The title is "IRONY IS GOING!" My question here is very simple. Why on earth should a people has no king?

I returned to the wise to know why. They told me that irony is king in limbo and that a kind is head. They equally explained it wisely saying that both man and nation are dead without head. "One is dead when one is beheaded," said the wise.

What I am saying in essence is that wisdom and intuition told me that Igbo is dead because Igbo people has no head. Barr. Ralph Uwazurike was formally crowned to serve as king of Igboland. But Igbo people turned and rejected him as their head. That was why I wrote an article titled "UWAZURIKE & VACANT THRONE".

The truth here is very simple and conspicuous. Everybody knows it. What is truth? If you do not know go to wise and pay heed. They will tell you that Igbo is dead because Igbo has no head. This means that Igbo people are living like ghosts in limbo. That is why majority of wise men in Igboland are like fools in reality.

Biafrans are gems and wizards in their minds only. It implies that liberation of Biafra may end up in fantasy world because gems and wizards exist in mind only. Igbo people cannot liberate Biafra if irony remains their king. They need real head to liberate Biafra in real life. I am sure I have not spoken in tongues here. My question is who is our leader in the struggle? Who does the cap fit?

Bible said, "Buy the truth and sell it not." If we do not know where to buy the truth, come to me and ask! I will tell us that Ralph Uwazurike needs our backing, and our backing is the money to buy the truth.
