This is the News Analysis segment of the Voice of Biafra International broadcasts

For April 24th, 2004

You have heard the news; now, the analysis…

“My peoples and my nations shall not be sacrificed for the sake of preserving a worthless idea called Nigeria.” So speaketh the Lord. And so it is.

“The peoples and their nations must live and thrive, though the name and concept of Nigeria die. The peoples and their nations must not and will not be allowed to perish just to save a dying Nigeria.” So says the Lord.  

Fellow Biafrans: Trifle not with the Word of God. For, the Word of God is, God.

While there is nothing dramatic to show at this time, we trust that it is clear to you that we, of Biafra, have entered a new era. Since Nigeria failed to call for a Sovereign National Conference in the time frame recommended earlier, we must pursue our prerogative to explore the ways and means of establishing a functional Biafra Government in exile. Needless to remind you, this is serious business.

We understand that there are those Biafrans who might be disappointed because there were no formal declarations, and that this bit of news was not reported on CNN or on BBC. Well, if it is any consolation, the things that will affect your life are rarely on BBC or CNN. What would be most unfortunate is, however, if any of this group became dejected or discouraged enough to think of giving up on Biafra. If this describes you, get out of it, beat off the sand and dust, stand up, and let’s move on. The journey is continuing, and there is only one goal: Biafra actualization. There is no room for disappointment because we are fully committed and fully determined to get to Biafra actualization, and there is no alternative or secondary target: it’s Biafra, all Biafra, only Biafra: Biafra actualization.

Let us reiterate that the formation of a government in exile is a process and not an event. It is a very serious undertaking. It is a process that has, in fact, started even without your knowing it. Remember, government is formed by the people; it is not formed over the people. This may be a difficult concept since your idea of a government is the fraud and evil imposed on the peoples suffering in Nigeria, crushing them like a heavy cross: that travesty called Nigerian government. That is not government: it is a contraption held together by dictatorship and by thieves and uncouth, unscrupulous and sometimes mentally unbalanced, persons and their fellow-criminals.

Government is formed by the people. It’s about the people; it’s for the people, it’s of the people. Government is not about so-called leaders or appointments, not about offices and officials, nor perks nor privileges; it’s not about pompous titles and ceremony. Government is the people. The people. The people. We cannot emphasize this enough: Government is all about the people—the people’s will, the people’s business, the people’s welfare, the people’s progress and collective life-fulfillment.

When you, the people, woke up and warmed up to the idea of Biafra actualization—at that moment—you took the first step in the formation of Biafra government. When you, the people, raised your awareness, recalled and reclaimed your Biafra-ness, you started on the road to the formation of Biafra government. When you finally cried out: “Give us Biafra !”—on that day—you embarked on the formation of the Biafra government.

Knowing that it is the people that form and commission a government, you can now understand that it is up to you, the people of Biafra, not BBC, to do the things necessary to successfully form a government. It is up to you, the people of Biafra, not CNN, to do the things that will ensure a viable government. It is up to you, the people of Biafra, not the UN, not the EU, not the US, not the UK, to build your government to the standard that reflects Biafra and that is demanded by the Spirit of Biafra. The formation of the Biafra government, whether in exile or in situ, is our task: the people's task—individually, severally and collectively. And, as mentioned earlier, we, the people of Biafra,  have started on that task the day we re-embraced Biafra as our only nature and as our Divine destiny.

What does this really mean? It means that we shall task ourselves to do the things that we have to do, when we have to do them, and however it is determined by us that we have to do them. And, we shall keep doing those things until the symbol of the Biafra government is seated under our Biafra National Colors and Coat of Arms somewhere in Biafraland proper. We shall do these things as individuals, as groups, as masses, and then, as one Nation, whenever called upon to do them.

What do we need? We need Courage. We need Determination. We need Stamina. We need Focus: to train our eyes on the Prize—Biafra actualization—at all times, as we diligently work towards it. We need Cooperation. We need Wisdom and or the Understanding that this is a one-way road to Biafra actualization: there is no going back, and no thought of going back. We need the understanding that there in fact shall be no failures: only opportunities for discovery and learning from mistakes, and requisite course adjustments; as we move inexorably towards victory, towards our destiny—Biafra actualization.

Be ready! In the name of Biafra, we shall each and all be asked to do our part, no matter how little or seemingly insignificant. We will be asked to do things that are very difficult, and could even lead to, or spell, danger—even mortal danger—and those who can, will oblige. We shall ask of ourselves sacrifice. We will respond. We will do. We will act.

So, fellow Biafrans, look around you: make peace with your brother and with your sister because we will all need it. Where it is not possible to make peace, then arrange a truce in the name of Biafra. Out of respect for, and regard to, Biafra, join in cooperative action with fellow Biafrans though you may disagree on other matters. Even if you can’t bring yourself to do this, then make a vow that you will never deliberately place an obstacle in the way of a brother or sister who is working towards Biafra actualization.

Please do not bother to ask where God is on this matter. God created Biafra and then, created you Biafran and placed you in the land known as Biafra. Just as God removed the people of Israel from the oppressive and enslaving Pharaoh and Egypt, God has planned to remove you from the equally bad or even worse Nigeria, that you may live and reap the benefits of your Divine creation as Biafrans in the land of His creation, Biafra. God is doing His part. Let us do our part.

Biafra lives!

That’s the news analysis for the week. Thank you.


God bless and keep Biafra , and you, until our next broadcast. Voice of Biafra International (VOBI) broadcast continues ( with the summary of the News Analysis in Igbo language.
