Joe Igbokwe: The Accidental House Slave~ By Charles Ogbu

Joe Igbokwe: The Accidental House Slave~ By Charles Ogbu

Reading Joe Igbokwe’s tales of his personal wars and woes, I was left wondering whether to simply pause and die laughing or die crying. In his bid to prove to Maazi Nnamdi Kanu that he is not a slave, he ended up writing the story of his long years of slavery to the Tinubu dynasty. How poetically ironic!! He was called a hungry Lagos slave and he responded by listing his long years of “serving”…

IGBO:THE LION AND THE HEBREWS

IGBO:THE LION AND THE HEBREWS

Aro people like most Igbo people have much regards (respect) for the wild cat (animal) called LION. They cherish this animal so much that attention should be given to it in the composition of the life of Aro-man. In truth, the wild cat has so much influence in the life and lifestyle of the Aro / Igbo’s that her general culture, behaviour, language, names, title and mode of dressing are often associated with the LION….

THE SEVEN-FOLD YOKE AND THE SLAVE MASTER’S THAT OWN NIGERIA

THE SEVEN-FOLD YOKE AND THE SLAVE MASTER’S THAT OWN NIGERIA

The disruptive power of the Hausa-Fulani cabal is a structural reality and will only get worse, no matter where the President of Nigeria comes from. It is a seven-fold yoke which we must break for the sake of our children. 1. THE POLITICAL YOKE: Globally, out of the 16 Federal Republics in the world, Nigeria is the only federation where land mass is used as primary criteria for creating federating units. NO Southern leader (civilian…

BIAFRA:In the struggle for our freedom, all hail our heroes

BIAFRA:In the struggle for our freedom, all hail our heroes

The above heading is also the title of a song originally composed by Charles O. Okereke. The lyrics of this song which quickly turned into a classic in a few short years were originally conceived in 1970. Okereke 14 at the time was just a child – a Biafran child, that is. As Biafra’s defeat was announced over the radio waves, the words of the song tumbled into his young mind. Ironically, the prophetic declarations…

NEWS: Why Nigeria Failed and why Biafra must take centre stage.

We are all born into history. We did not choose to be born into our own unique history. We did not choose to be born Igbo, Efik, Ibibio, Ijaw, Ogoja, Itsekiri, Isoko, Esan, and Urhobo. We are simply born into who we are. We were born into who we are free of coercion, compulsion, or persuasion. We simply became who we are.   As a result of who we are we inherited specific social and…

Taking Igbo out of Nigerian bondage

Taking Igbo out of Nigerian bondage

Taking Igbo out of Nigerian bondage   What Igbo people want is to leave Nigeria  On the 29th of May 1966 the Igbo irreversibly renounced their colonially imposed Nigerian citizenship. That date marks the official beginning of the 1966 Pogrom of Igbo people in Nigeria. So, it goes without saying that what the Igbo want is to cut clear and exist sovereignly, politically and territorially independent of the Nigerian state.   There has never been…

Is Biafra Shadow Government able to attract majority of the people of Biafra?

Is Biafra Shadow Government able to attract majority of the people of Biafra?

Whereas the Peoples and Nation of Biafra and their land and property find themselves under physical, sociologic, political, economic and psychological subjugation by the State of Nigeria since 1967, a “state of occupation,” by Nigeria, of Biafra, has existed and continues to exist. Unwilling to continue to live under such stifling servitude while suffering such indignities as are inappropriate for human beings, determined to exercise the natural and legal rights to Freedom and Liberty, NOW,…

BUHARI, PYTHON DANCE AND THE BIAFRA QUESTION

BUHARI, PYTHON DANCE AND THE BIAFRA QUESTION

Just like the birth pangs of a woman in labour heralds the innocent cry of a new-born baby; so do the travails and committed struggles of any oppressed people herald the dawn of their freedom. This is the natural sequence of events in the integral calculus that create freedom. History cannot afford me any parallel where a nation has emerged from the womb of oppression into freedom without bitter struggle and sacrifice. In the entire…

APC’s FAILURE AND THE BLAME GAME SYNDROME: REQUIEM FOR NIGERIA

APC’s FAILURE AND THE BLAME GAME SYNDROME: REQUIEM FOR NIGERIA

One factor that has led to the collapse of many societies throughout history is internal decay brought about by inept and visionless leadership. The pages of history are littered with examples of societies whose final descent into perdition was preceded by unprecedented internal rot. This type of rot is usually sustained by a corps of lackadaisical and moronic leadership that made a vocation of blaming their predecessors for the rot of society without as much…
