This is the News Analysis Segment of the Voice of Biafra International Broadcasts.
You have heard the news, now, the analysis…
Never before has the importance of Unity and Solidarity of a Nation—the Nation of Biafra—and the expression of such unity and solidarity, proved to be so crucial as now, at the end of January 2003, in the sociopolitical nightmare known as Nigeria. We, the Nation of Biafra, have been drifting in the wilderness of politics and sociology, drifting in time, for over 40 years. The detractors of
Unity and solidarity of a people is a good thing, any day. We shall not preach to you about the need for, the value and the result of, a focused collective action based on unity and solidarity. But, what we are telling you today is that at no other time is that unity and solidarity called for more so than at the present moment. Save for the decision to defend ourselves from the murderous and marauding Nigerians in 1967, there is no more momentous occasion or act than what we are asking you to do now.
We require a show of unity and solidarity of the Biafran nation now. We express this unity and solidarity of
Fellow, Biafrans: please can anyone of us truthfully say that a united
As you all recall, we have always maintained that the elections will not hold. We have stated that even if the elections hold, the results will not be conclusive. There will be a lot of chaos, and we believe, unfortunately, this chaos will be characterized by bloodiness. We all know what happens when blood is shed in
While we have honestly predicted to you what is bound to happen, people like General Obasanjo are busy telling you not to worry, that nothing will happen. They tell you to expect a peaceful time this election time. We know from his track record that General Obasanjo along with administration has never prevented violence in
Although General Obasanjo has lied to you to expect no violence, he is doing everything possible to create the circumstances for violence with these so-called elections. He should know, assuming that he understands the history of elections in
If General Obasanjo only bought votes with the people’s money, that may not be enough to expect a predictable storm. But, he and his operators actually intimidated voters at the primary, marking the voters’ ballots, in an exercise that was supposed to be secret balloting. This is how far the General and his men are willing to go in order to rig the elections. What really is most annoying is that the same General Obasanjo will go around speaking of and preaching democracy to the people living in Nigeria, as if we are either totally ignorant of how and what he is and what he is doing, or too weak and dumb to notice or protest. Then, tell me: isn’t it this type of situation that predictably leads to election or pre-election violence? The same man that is going around telling you that nothing is going to happen is actually doing everything to make the predictions of violence and chaos come true. That is why we are united now and are in complete solidarity as Biafrans; because it is only in so doing can we protect ourselves from what is certainly coming. To show our solidarity, we shall support APGA and Ojukwu; that way our people can take back our land—Biafra—and her people, Biafrans, from occupation by Nigeria and Nigeria’s surrogates in the land; that way, we can shield our people and our land from darkness which General Obasanjo and his operatives are going to bring upon Nigeria.
Fellow Biafrans: we need to stay united and in solidarity in order to prevent our people from falling deeper into the bottomless pit of a trap set for us by Nigerians, such as Buhari. Buhari will talk about democracy and experience. Well, Buhari has never had any experience with democracy, coming from a culture that is totally feudalistic. Maybe he is trying to claim that as a military strongman, he ruled by democracy. Well, that’s fine for him, but not for those who know what democracy means. This man wants to make the so-called federal government of Nigeria more powerful—as if the federal government of Nigeria does not control enough already, including even so-called local government areas (LGA). Of course, everybody understands what this means. He wants to turn
When our people all decide to support APGA, we shall have the solidarity to wrest control of our land from Hausa-dominated, and Obasanjo-corrupted, and generally inept, PDP and its governors who are killing our people.
When we support Ojukwu, we are forcing the rest of Nigeria to acknowledge our existence, to stop discounting us, to understand that the elections are not a done deal—just a 2 way who-can-rig-and-intimidate-most race between 2 incompetents, Obasanjo and Buhari. When we support Ojukwu, we make an impact and affect the results of these elections, forcing a three-way situation and tie that will result in a Sovereign National Conference to decide on how each nation living in Nigeria shall relate to one another on the basis of each nation’s sovereignty and independence.
Remember, this is an exercise of first and foremost, Biafran Unity and Solidarity; the vote and support for APGA / Ojukwu is an act of substance that confirms our unity and solidarity. For, our salvation lies not in the political process going on in
Fellow Biafrans: act out our unity and solidarity now: support and vote for APGA / Ojukwu.
That’s the news analysis for the week. Thank you
God bless and keep
