Fellow Biafrans: Heaven and Earth shall pass away, but the Word of God stands. You can count on It.
As is our custom and tradition, this Christmas season, many of us have returned from all parts of this planet, back from every single continent and country in the world, traveling back to our homeland, Biafra, where our umbilical cord is firmly attached.
Today, we shall address Igbo-Biafran businessmen and women--which includes Igbo-Biafran Traders; and also, Igbo-Biafran students. We shall point out to them what their contribution to the revival of our great Biafran character, culture, tradition and religion is. We shall remind them of our God-given talent of excellent scholarship and unmatched entrepreneurial spirit. These talents, combined, make us Biafrans well endowed for academic and technical achievements and excellence; and also well endowed for unbeatable business acumen and unparalleled success in business. Before we get there, let us take a few minutes to address some relevant issues.
We note with satisfaction that Joe Achuzie, the new Ohaneze Secretary-General, has formally made it clear that the membership of Ohaneze DO know that Obasanjo-Aso Rock have tried and are trying to influence the organization through some Igbo elements who are also known to Ohaneze. We note with satisfaction the implication that Ohaneze will cater to the needs of Igbo-Biafrans vis-a-vis the needs of the occupying evil known as
In another matter, we maintain our call for Ngige to resign from the post of the governorship of Anambra. His admissions with regards to his activities and the role he played during the ordeal and predicament which he placed himself in, disqualifies him as a Governor. We also expect the National Assembly to impeach Obasanjo on this issue for maintaining that this is a PDP-family affair instead of a matter for the law of the land (although we know that when it comes to Nigeria, there is no real country; all there are are Obasanjo and his friends making and bending the rules as they please, mocking the so-called constitution). Obasanjo should be impeached for awarding so-called highest
We expect that Anambra government should be turned over to the rightful officials voted for by our people in the 2003 elections—officials of APGA. As a matter of fact, the whole Igbo-Biafraland should be turned over to APGA because we voted for APGA overwhelmingly, but PDP-Obasanjo rigged the elections and brought us the likes of Uba and Ngige, Mbadinuju, Wabara, Orji Uzor Kalu and the rest of their ilk. PDP is an illegitimate government and fraudulent self-appointed authority foisted over our people. Let us not forget that.
Fellow Biafrans: let’s now get back to our business men and women and traders; and then, our students.
May we be blunt? There is little hope of infrastructural repair and rescue in Igboland-Biafraland until either one of 2 things happens:
a) Our traders and business men and women bring back their business headquarters and operational centers to Igbo-Biafraland; or
And, it is not just our roads, airlines (International airport in Igboland), water, electricity, communications—telephones, Internet; it is also about economic recovery, employment, technical skills acquisition and personal empowerment and social rescue.
We ask you to recall that recently, Oil was discovered in Anambra, but the Oil Company involved immediately stated that its headquarters will be established in
We want to be able to say, “a word is enough for the wise,” but instead, the only thing that comes out of our mouth is that “the fly that refuses to follow good counsel soon perishes, having lingered too long and followed the corpse into the grave.” Do we need to point out to you that none of your properties and businesses are safe in those places where you prefer to place them instead of in ?
Folks: you are the best business men and women and the best traders in the entire world. We are not joking about this. That’s your Biafran genetic trait, and you have demonstrated it quite well. But, when you can’t see to make your own land, Biafraland, better with your trade and talents, but insist on beautifying and improving other people’s lands, how wise or how good, how successful can you claim to be? Think about it.
This coming year, we recommend that you begin the process of relocating your operational headquarters to Igbo-Biafraland. Then, move some, if not all, of your business back to Biafraland. If you operate from Igbo-Biafraland, we will never again beg Obasanjo to repair our infrastructure. And, your clients and customers will gladly come from all over
Let this be your least contribution to
Next, we want to address our students.
Today, we lament that you, our Biafran Students, know NOT the potential, nor the exploits of your Biafran parents and elders, or of our Biafran ancestors. Nor have you known the joy of fulfilling your own potential educationally, the joy of competing academically or in the workplace with anybody from anywhere on this planet and beating them all!!! But your entire being tells you that you have that same stuff—that same right stuff. Unfortunately, the structure of one-Nigeria has made sure that other forces from
We have been blunt and straightforward: the problem is one-

So this coming year, we ask our traders and business men and women, and our students to embrace
For those going back to the places of their sojourn at the end of this season, remember that the only effective and feasible answer to all the ill and anomalies surrounding our people and in our land which you have witnessed today—the solution—is Biafra. Make

May the season bring us what we desire--
