Fellow Biafrans: Mock not the Word of God. Those that do only end up making a big mockery of themselves!
Today, we would like to continue the awakening process—to continue the raising of the collective awareness of our people to the reality of

Fellow Biafrans, we therefore ask you today to have your strength renewed and your stamina replenished for the rest of the journey, because we shall all need that. Let not the enemy in the form of impatience get you down and get you discouraged. No—we shall not let that happen. Do not allow longing to turn into premature disappointment, because there is truly only one way that this is going to end—in
We must not remain idle and or mope around downcast, in the meantime. We must begin to think about all the things that make us Biafrans. Then, we must begin to do all the things that make us—not just Biafrans, but—good Biafrans. We must tend to our Biafran brothers and sisters, our Biafran mothers and fathers, our Biafran grand’s, and the rest of the Biafran family. We must also tend to our own selves not in selfishness, but so that we can remain strong and vibrant to be ready and able to discharge our responsibilities. Let us infuse all our people with enthusiasm for
We may argue and quarrel, fight and fall out with one another, but let us always remember that we are Biafrans—one Nation bound by one Divine destiny. Thus, let us not allow normal human predilections tear us apart, in order that we may not be deprived of the fullest joy accruing from
There may be skeptics still out there. After we have talked to them thusly, and if they are still unwilling to correct their attitude, we leave them to their own doubts to wallow in the hopelessness called one-Nigeria. We shall revisit them at the actualization of

Whence is the moral and or political and or legal ground or authority to continue to force different Nations suffering in Nigeria to continue to suffer, without hope of release, and without hope of relief, by a government which practices open hypocrisy and fraud with brazenness?
Just consider the recent news, and you can see the hypocrisy and evil of this government. While the peoples suffering in Nigeria are getting impoverished and being taxed more, General Obasanjo is going to spend billions to purchase a Presidential jet? Now, the peoples had hoped that the so-called National Assembly would protect them from such vagaries and such insensitivity by the government. After initially making a lot of empty noise about their opposition to such extravagance in the light of the plight of the peoples suffering (not "living") in Nigeria, the National Assembly caved in, bullied into submission by Obasanjo’s insensitive, callous, intimidating and murderous wrecking machine of a government. So, who wants to be a citizen of this so-called country where one single man can punish all the peoples at will, control the so-called elected officials and make them change their mind and bend them to his own ruthless will? Where is the moral or legal or even sociopolitical standing to protect a system that allows this type of thing to continue to occur?
Consider that Obasanjo also has the judiciary in his pocket, using that system at will either to validate his bad policies or to stop rightful opposition. How many judges perform their job with justice or fairness anymore? How many of them—even in the so-called Federal Courts—have revealed to the peoples living in Nigeria the kinds of pressure and credible, serious threats they have received from the “highest quarters” compelling them to render decision with a particular biased slant, and have we paid heed?
Now, when a government run by a dictator with willing sycophants and spineless, cowering, trembling civil service, joined by so-called elected officials who serve not the interest and mandate of the peoples that supposedly elected them, but instead, serve the whims and wishes of the dictator—when this government—goes as far as controlling thus the Lawmakers, the Judiciary, the Police and Security forces, the Military, and then uses all this to oppress the peoples and promote the selfish ego of the dictator, what moral or legal or political standing allows the dictator and his evil government to stop the aggrieved, deprived and depraved peoples from leaving the structure that supports this hell, such as Nigeria is?
If you think Obasanjo is the only dictator because the peoples are presently feeling the burden of his dictatorship, you miss the point. This whole thing has been going on since 1966. The only constant factor is the structure called one-Nigeria. It is that structure that has made it possible for these dictators to come and stay and then be succeeded by same or other dictators. So, you tell me: where is the moral imperative to defend such a structure? Who would you save this structure for? For these dictators and their sham regimes, so that they can continue to trample on the peoples and feed their persons, egos and psyche, off the blood and the resources of the peoples?
