This is the News Analysis segment of the Voice of Biafra International broadcasts
For October 16th, 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 Word of God has no expiration; yet, its fulfillment can be unexpected.
We continue to witness the depravity of a few of our own people when we read what Nnamani recently wrote—things not worth repeating here, except to say that in a way, it is good that the efulefu among us are revealing themselves by themselves. You should now know that it is getting to “harvest time,” when the grain is separated from chaff, the latter to be discarded. It is pruning season, when useless branches and leaves are cleaved off preparatory to the growth and fruiting of the mother-tree. Persons like Nnamani who come to us to praise Obasanjo are truly sick. We shall ignore him and sideline him—along with his ilk.
We note the arrogance of so-called governors in occupied Biafraland. Some of them have no shame at all. They walk around talking about “legitimacy,” a word that should stick in their throat and choke them if they insist on lying and on being hypocrites. Doesn’t it make you want to vomit to read or hear someone like Ngige claim that he and his administration have legitimacy in Anambra state? Which one of those governors does not realize that the people of Biafra do in fact know that in April 2003, the people’s electoral mandate given to APGA was stolen in broad daylight by PDP-Obasanjo fraud-machine? They stole from us: they know it; they know that we know it; yet they prance around acting like and claiming that they are legitimate? They are essentially calling us fools and cowards because we allowed them to get away with it. They have concluded that we are weak, powerless and harmless.
We can only advise them to witness what is happening to the master-fraudster—their slave master—called General Obasanjo, today. This current NLC strike which almost all the peoples living a life of suffering in Nigeria observed should prove to Obasanjo and his cabal that he may in fact usurp power as he has done, but the peoples will never support him. Only the previously demonstrated timidity of the leadership of NLC can save Obasanjo now. But, sooner or later, even NLC, backed by disenfranchised peoples suffering in Nigeria, will be forced to develop some backbone and deal the ultimate blow to Obasanjo. By the same token, all the so-called governors and their parasitic administrations in occupied Biafraland should realize that though they have seized power, the people of Biafra will never support them, and they will never represent the people of Biafra. Ultimately, we, the people, shall take back what is ours, in the name of Sovereign Biafra and for the glory of the people of the nation of Biafra.
Fellow Biafrans, we are advising you to be ready for a long drawn-out struggle, if it should come to that. Therefore, resolve, in your mind today, that whatever it takes, however long it takes, we are in this for the duration. Yet, let us stay poised to act if any opportunity should present itself rather unexpectedly. While we do not expect much more out of this strike knowing that NLC always stops short of the goal—in fact, NLC stops no where even near the goal; instead, each time adds more losses to the original loss—there is yet a chance that things could get out of hand and the dying, staggering paper-giant with clay feet fall and shatter. There is no reason to believe that Nigeria will survive this strike if the strike lasts long enough. In that case, let us be of one mind and stick to Biafra / Biafra actualization. And, in that day, have no patience for any Igbo-Biafran who would preach one-Nigeria. We have already had enough of one-Nigeria, and enough of the distraction.
Especially considering that Atiku came to Onitsha, Biafraland, only this week, to declare that the Igbo have benefited from Nigeria. We suppose we should then kneel before Atiku and thank him profusely, like Orji Uzor Kalu, Nnamani, Irukwu, Iwuanyanwu and a few others would recommend? Let us assume for one moment that he is correct in his statement; then, let us ask him what specific benefit Ndigbo have gotten from Nigeria which Ndigbo have, not just prepaid for, but actually also, over-paid for, with our blood, our body, our sweat and our tears? And even at that, what benefit have Ndigbo gotten from Nigeria which Nigeria has not tried, successfully too, to take away most of, just to spite and humiliate Ndigbo? Let us ask Atiku: what do his people bring to Nigeria, and what have his people taken out of Nigeria? Since this man lacks insight and discernment, it will be pointless for us to explain it all to him. However, we want to tell Atiku that he is not welcome in Biafraland. Like his kinsmen, Babangida and Buhari and Gowon and the rest of them, he is not welcome in Biafraland, because they supervised the ongoing killing and raping of our people and our land, and they are yet to speak up and speak out against these crimes against humanity, or show remorse, let alone apologize and make amends for their unconscionable acts against Igbo / Biafrans. And, while they come down to our land at will and with arrogance, how many Biafrans can visit any part of Awusa-land and act with any freedom at all, or with any guarantee of their personal safety and security? This is what they call their one-Nigeria, and this is what a few Igbo efulefu’s are defending, and want to be president of in 2007? This is truly aru!
We must not forget that many MASSOB members and other Biafrans are held unjustly in Nigerian jails today by those who like to lecture us that “...no one is above the law...” We must work vigorously and feverishly to obtain the release of our Biafran people while we invoke our Chi to check those whose arrogant hypocrisy in itself is a travesty to cosmic justice, deserving its due.
Just think: when we have our own nation of Biafra, how will this type of gross injustice be tolerated, and who would do such an immoral thing? It would be unthinkable in the first place.
Biafra is the answer. Biafra is the complete answer. Biafra is the only correct answer.
And, it shall be—it is, because that’s God’s intention in creating Biafra, creating Biafrans, and giving them Biafra.
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 (http://www.biafraland.com/vobi.htm) with the summary of the News Analysis in Igbo language.
