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

For May 15th,  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: The entire Createdness can be swept away, but the Word of God persists—for eternity. Learn to trust and rely on God’s Word.  

We pose some questions to you today. First, do you have Biafran blood flowing in you? Then, you are Biafran. Second, are you related only by marriage to a Biafran? Then, you are a Biafran where marital custom and laws so specify. This makes you (and your children) all Biafrans. Third, do you want to see Biafra actualized? Are you willing to do everything that you can do to see our nation of Biafra achieve sovereignty? Yes? GREAT!  

This makes us all members of MASSOB. This makes us all members of the all-Biafran collective movement pursuing only one common goal, the realization of the Sovereign State of Biafra. Fellow Biafrans, we are thus members of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, by virtue of our common and proud Biafra heritage and by virtue of the fact of our one burning desire, which is the fulfillment of our common divine destiny, to live as Biafrans in the Nation of Biafra.  

This, then, is our response to the renewed persecution, harassment, injuring, detention, torment, killing and jailing of MASSOB members and leadership, on Obasanjo’s orders, being carried out by his security officers, otherwise known as murderers. The rest of us may not have signed up yet as registered members of MASSOB, but we are in fact all MASSOBians. So, whatever the wicked Nigerian agents and their master, Obasanjo, do to MASSOB, they are in fact doing to all of us.  

Our people, we want you all to know and to acknowledge at all times that we are all MASSOBians. We want you all to act and carry yourselves like MASSOB members which you truly are. If anybody asks: show me MASSOB members, you all raise your hands, all at the same time, without hesitation. They can hurt and kill us, but, they cannot take away what we are—MASSOB, headed for our prize, the Sovereign State of Biafra. 

Fellow Biafrans, just as Jehovah dealt with Pharaoh and Egypt who refused to let God’s people, unarmed and non-violent Israelites, leave Egypt, the same Jehovah has prevailed for us unarmed and non-violent Biafrans in this similar circumstance. Therefore, for every MASSOB member Obasanjo and the Nigerian agents kill, one thousand Nigerians shall die; for every MASSOB member Obasanjo and the Nigerian agents hurt, ten thousand Nigerians shall be injured; and, for every MASSOBian Obasanjo and the Nigerian agents harass or detain or put in jail, one hundred thousand Nigerians will be harassed and inconvenienced and will lose their physical freedom, lose their mental cohesion, lose their psychic integrity and lose their spiritual moorings. Count on this, and stay true to the Divine plan of rescuing Biafra from the evil clutches of Obasanjo and Nigeria. This is our response to Obasanjo's unjustifiable and unconscionable crimes and wickedness committed with arrogance and bravado against the nation and people of Biafra.

Shameless he is, heGeneral Obasanjo whorecently is quoted as saying, regarding the convocation of a Sovereign National Conference:  

"If you can convince me [General Obasanjo] that a Sovereign National Conference has something it can achieve which the National Assembly cannot achieve, who were elected in their own right, which the governors cannot achieve, which the traditional rulers cannot achieve, which the leaders of thought that met from all walks of life cannot achieve, who we can trust in their own right; different associations, women groups even the youths I had conference with. If all these cannot achieve what we want to achieve then I wonder what the Sovereign National Conference will achieve."  

How blind or hypocritical can a so-called leader be? What does something—anything—have to do to do better than the National Assembly of Nigeria? All it has to do is accomplish just a single thing—anything—anytime in a five year period; for, indeed, since inception in 1999, can General Obasanjo point to one thing that the National Assembly has achieved? And, who is responsible for that paralysis and nonfeasance of the National Assembly if not the meddlesome, controlling, intimidating, dictatorial General Obasanjo himself? Even for him to claim that the National Assembly and governors were “elected in [its] own right” reveals more hypocrisy or outright  pathological lying. Does Obasanjo forget so soon that the elections were roundly rigged, that names were shuffled around to fill positions, regardless of whether they contested the elections in the first place or not, whether they "won" the election or not? Does Obasanjo forget so soon that godfathers who finance and work for PDP party handpicked the members of the National Assembly?  Is it the natural forgetfulness of old age or is it plain denseness which impels Obasanjo to make statements like this?  “…leaders of thought who we can trust in their own right…”? C’mon, General Obasanjo! If there are really true leaders of thought, have you ever listened to their thoughtful counsel—isn’t this what you are faulted on by everyone (except for your sycophants)? The fact is that the few leaders of thought  that the peoples living in Nigeria can actually trust, have called for a Sovereign National Conference, but you have maintained a deaf ear. Oh yes, what do you expect the Youth and the Women groups to say to you, General, when they are so vulnerable; when you bribe them and or threaten to withhold the hush money you send them? What do you expect them to do when you can unleash your murderous security agents on them at your whim and pleasure? 

As for the reported conversation where you, General Obasanjo, claim that you spoke to an Igbo boy who said he wanted Sovereign National Conference so that an Igbo can be President of Nigeria, all we can say is that most likely, it was Wabara you spoke to; Wabara is in fact Igbo, and Wabara is in fact a “boy”—your boy, that is.. And, you and he must have had a good laugh as you mocked Ndigbo and he, ever willing to please you, laughed and mocked his own people along with you. We can give you several reasons why a Sovereign National Conference is the only orderly process-alternative left for Nigeria, but we can see that the religious riots happening even as you spoke now have no meaning for you; nor the recently suppressed though constitutionally allowed  opposition protest march against your government. In fact, it was suppressed on your orders, and you claimed it a victory for yourself. The problem—typical of you—is that you don’t listen, and you don’t hear. But, you, General Obasanjo, shall hear this: Biafra. That reason alone justifies a Sovereign National Conference. But, rest assured that we will have Biafra, with or without a Sovereign National Conference. It is our Divine destiny, Biafra’s unshakable destiny.  

Fellow Biafrans: when we ask you to count on something, do count on it; if we ask you to pray with us, do pray with us. When we ask you to put your trust in God’s Word, we mean it: trust God’s Words; and trust in God’s actions. Last week, we predicted that Biafrans will invariably and eventually become victims of Northern Nigeria religious violence, and we see that happening now. We have advised you in the past to return to our homeland, Biafraland, to do business. We know it is hard, but now, look at the alternative, which we have been warning you about.  

This week, we urge you all to trust that God will prevail over Obasanjo and Nigeria in the same manner that He did over Pharaoh and Egypt, and bring about whatever effects will be necessary to loosen the evil and leprous grip of Obasanjo and Nigeria on Biafra so that Biafrans can be on her way to the Sovereign State of God-blessed Biafra.  

Biafra! 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.
