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.

Deconstructing the false image of the Igbo as the poster child liberators of their neighbours

Deconstructing the false image of the Igbo as the poster child liberators of their neighbours   Over the last few decades it does not speak well of the rationality of some of those involved in the Biafran or Igbo liberation movement that they base some of their actions and statements on mere assumptions. As a result some of these Biafran activists have created in the minds of some observers a false impression of what the…

Taking Igbo out of Nigerian bondage Part 3

Taking Igbo out of Nigerian bondage Part 3

Eat with the devil but with long spoon   If we should equate Igbo’s existence in Nigeria as being in hell then it is inevitable that the Igbo must eat or interact with the devil – the lord of Hell.

Igbo journey out of Nigeria can only be led by the best that Igbo have to offer

Igbo journey out of Nigeria can only be led by the best that Igbo have to offer   We are confident that it is a few focused and incorruptible Igbo who through team spirit (njiko,) aka idi ocha (sterling character) and amamife (wisdom) will eventually, without guns and bombs free the Igbo from Nigeria. These Igbo-centric politicians will need to work in partnership with their Igbo brothers and sisters both at home and abroad to…

THE AMBAZONIAN RENAISSANCE & THE ROLE OF THE DIASPORA.

In quite an applaudable manner, the people of the former British Southern Cameroons (Ambazonia) have treaded the path of taking their destiny into their own hands. The last close to one year has experienced a sequence of unprecedented reawakening, with the Ambazonian people demanding for their due from the evil, roguery, and occupier regime of Cameroun under the 84 year old Paul Biya, who has ruled the erroneously ‘united country’ for the past 34 years….

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…
