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.

IS NIGERIA WORTH DYING FOR?

IS NIGERIA WORTH DYING FOR?

This is one question that has bothered many Nigerians. As much as many of us would readily declare their love for Nigeria and haughtily proclaim that the “unity” of Nigeria is not negotiable, I have never stopped asking myself if any of these apostles of Nigerian patriotism or unity would be willing to put their lives on the line for the sake of this country. This question has become very germane in our present situation…

Biafra : The Case For Biafra Is Stronger Than South Sudan, Kosovo – US Constitutional Lawyer Writes

Biafra, dominated by the great Igbo race, enjoyed sovereignty before Great Britain commenced exploitive colonial rule over Nigeria under the racist banner of Rudyard Kipling’s “the White Man’ burden.” Britain asserted authority over Biafra based on the tyrannical doctrine that the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must. The Berlin West Africa Conference, 1884-85, and the Berlin General Act symbolised colonial lawlessness by treating Africa as a carcass to be…

UCHE ONYEMA: FROM ME TO YOUR HEART TO PONDER.

UCHE ONYEMA: FROM ME TO YOUR HEART TO PONDER.

It is about the scheming going on in the south-east region today. It is about Anambra2017 gubernatorial elections. A lot of movements are being made. Cross-over would-have-dignitaries are moving or rushing to APC. Too many names are emerging as potential candidates under APC. I need not mention their names. On the other hand PDP is positioning and repositioning strategizing on how to wrestle power from APGA. The peter Obi camp are already acting Peter Obi…

Biafra:How a Nation may separate itself from the State of which it is a Member, or renounce its Allegiance to its Sovereign when it is not protected.

Biafra:How a Nation may separate itself from the State of which it is a Member, or renounce its Allegiance to its Sovereign when it is not protected.

We have said that an independent nation, which, without becoming a member of another state, has voluntarily rendered itself dependent on or subject to it in order to obtain protection, is released from its engagements as soon as that protection fails, even though the failure happen through the inability of the protector. But we are not to conclude that it is precisely the same case with every nation that cannot obtain speedy and effectual protection…

News: James Ibori fled Nigeria because the cabal in Aso Rock wanted him dead

In this final article in my series of replies to Simon Kolawole’s “The Welcome Party” (Thisday newspaper of Sunday December 25, 2016), where he condemned the massive celebration Chief James OnanefeIbori’s release from UK jail elicited in Nigeria, I will face the sixth untruth in his single article.

Culture: The Igbo: When did the Hebrew contact occur?

The Igbo: When did the Hebrew contact occur? REFERENCE “A” It is not my intention to do more than merely refer to this reputed connection; but, according to missionary research, both the Efik and Ibo tongues abound in Hebraisms, while the construction of sentences, the verbal significations, the mode of comparison, are also typical of the Hebrew; and in the same way nouns, adverbs, and adjectives are formed from the single roots of verbs and…
