This is the News Analysis segment of the Voice of Biafra International (VOBI) broadcasts
For December 12, 2008
You have heard the news; now, the analysis…
No long talk today.
You know that Nigeria has failed. We, Biafrans, know that collectively, we have been badly beaten and bruised in Nigeria, by Nigeria. We have to get out of Nigeria before it finishes us off. We want to be able to say that by this time next year, we will be singing our victory song—Biafra actualization song and doing our Biafra National dance.
Don’t expect Nigeria to do anything that we could benefit from; don’t expect Nigeria to change now and start being nice and receptive to our cries. Here are the signs that Nigeria will get even much worse, much as one had thought that things couldn’t get any worse in Nigeria and for Nigeria:
1. Niger Delta. Yar’Adua’s Nigeria budgetary allowance for Niger Delta affairs is a big joke. Even Nigeria’s biggest supporter, Edwin Clark, who always sides with Nigeria against Biafra, has expressed dissatisfaction with this allocation. Don’t expect the anti-Biafran Clark to do more than this announcement against his master, Nigeria; but don’t expect Yar’Adua / Nigeria to do more either for Niger Delta—with Niger Delta money.
2. Speaking of Nigeria’s budget—what a joke! Nigeria has already started borrowing again—heavily, enough to budget $1 Billion (yes, dollars), just to service the International debts. Remember how Obasanjo bragged that he obtained Debt Relief for Nigeria? And how Nigeria brags about its Foreign Reserve—last quoted as up to $50 Billion? While they were bragging, they were busy borrowing more. Guess who is going to pay for it?
3. Economic Recession on a Global scale is Nigeria’s latest excuse for running a huge budget deficit, after they had recently bragged that, by what must be some kind of “voodoo”(?) protection / pre-emptive prudent (?) economics practice in Nigeria, Nigeria was going to be spared from the global economic meltdown. “Prudent”? Count on Nigeria to brag about what it could never have. Of course, two things are clear: the rest of the world will recover—no matter how long it takes; but, Nigeria will never recover.
4. Biafra’s Oil, Nigeria’s primary source of funds, has slumped in price at this time. Granted that this may reverse in future, nevertheless, this is the eye-opener we have been warning our people about all this time. Oil will certainly dry out, and or demand will pummel while a new, cheaper and cleaner energy source will be found in the near future. In response, Parasite, Nigeria, will move on and seek another luckless host, while all the destruction and victimization of Biafraland resulting from Nigeria’s Oil ventures will be our burden for the duration, when the Mosquito, Nigeria, looks for more blood to suck elsewhere.
5. Nigerians continue to lie to themselves, and continue to accept the lies. They deny the real reason and implication of the recent Jos Ethnic warfare. While elsewhere in the world, masses of citizens get out to successfully enforce justice in their respective countries by driving out non-performing, law-breaking and corrupt governments and their officials, there in Nigeria, the peoples are dead. The inept, corrupt, insensitive and arrogant governments of Nigeria can do anything they so please to the Nigerian masses, and nothing will come of it. They are killing us, even now, even as we speak; what are we doing about it? Nothing.
6. The one remaining Nigeria’s friend, the UK government, unlike a real friend, insists on praising Nigeria and finding “progress” in Nigeria when even a child knows that Nigeria is truly evil. This means that the ruling party and class and all other political jobbers in Nigeria are being encouraged to continue with their “Lootocracy / Kleptocracy.” UK government’s hypocrisy and complicity in this matter stinks, even more so when it is the same UK which is spearheading the (deserved) hounding of Mugabe in Zimbabwe. After all, isn’t Nigeria sicker than Zimbabwe, both stricken with similar disease? In the final analysis, UK government praising Nigeria today can only reward and reinforce the ineptness, arrogance, malice and impunity of Nigeria’s government against the peoples, and will provide no reason or incentive for Nigeria’s so-called leaders to change for the better.
For all these and more reasons, you all have to be thinking of actionable ways to get Biafra out of Nigeria. Sovereign Ethnic National Conference is one such way. The drive and insistence on Self Determination using the instrument of a Referendum to ratify the goal is also another way. Biafrans living in Northern and Western Nigeria need to return and relocate their businesses to Biafraland and provide the infrastructure to conduct such business, just as they have done in foreign regions. Those with political power in the entire Biafraland must understand that we should, and will, be held responsible for taking charge of our own collective Regional Destiny, independent of Nigeria. Everyone should be supporting the MASSOB agenda; those who do not belong to MASSOB proper ought to find other avenues to carry out the same goal of Biafra actualization, in synergy. Everyone should be supporting and contributing towards the development of Biafraland and the welfare of the people of Biafra.
By this time next year, we want to celebrate our total liberation from Nigeria; we want to celebrate Biafra’s Independence. Nigeria is dying; we will not allow ourselves to be crushed by the dead weight of its carcass. Rather, we stand apart and sovereign, as Biafra, as Biafrans.
Do not forget Uchenna Madu, the Information Director of MASSOB, and all other MASSOB members, still in Nigeria’s jails. Nigeria is held liable and accountable for their status. Their safe and immediate release is the only acceptable outcome. We rest not until they all are safely released.
Biafra alive! Because it is God Who makes it so.
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 (http://www.biafraland.com/vobi.htm) now continues in Igbo, one of the Biafran languages.
