This is the News Analysis segment of the Voice of Biafra International (VOBI) broadcasts
For Feb 6, 2009
You have heard the news; now, the analysis…
We have just two concepts for you today: 1) Biafra Charter; 2) Ghana.
We will show you why the Biafra Charter is important now, and how it is that Ghana inspires an example.
Over a year ago, following a mandate by our people and after the mandated consultations and agreements with all stakeholders, the Biafra Charter was created, publicized and published—both on the Internet and in booklet form. Note the steps: 1) people’s mandate for the Biafra Charter; 2) people’s mandated consultations with all stake holders; 3) creation, and publication of the Charter. The fourth (last) step is dissemination / distribution and implementation—our people reading the document, understanding it, and taking it seriously, and finally, doing what the document says, doing as the Biafra Charter says.
If you have not read the Biafra Charter, well, after this, drop everything and find a copy and read it. It is also on the Internet. ( http://www.biafraland.com/BGIE/Biafra%20Charter.htm ) And, follow what it says. Based on the Biafra Charter, the BGIE (Biafra Government in Exile) was formed. The Biafra Shadow Government, called for by the same document, on the other hand, has not been formed yet: why? Because those called upon to accomplish this aspect either failed to read the Charter, or read it but did not take it serious, and or failed to carry out the mandate of the Charter, Fellow Biafrans: this is precisely why Nigeria is crumbling, certain to fail completely, doomed by the fact that no one takes agreements and documents seriously, and those who should be defending and implementing such agreements only carry out their own individual, personal and self-centered programs, well-contrary to the stipulations of the documents. This is why the Aburi Accord was not carried out, and Nigeria came after us and we had to defend ourselves in the Biafra War, as a result. This is how Obasanjo, recently and along with his fellow-military psychopaths and their cronies of the past, ruined the lives of all peoples and everything else touched by the leprous hand of Nigeria. This is how and why even the hithertofore unknown Umaru Yar’Adua and company are today continuing the rape of Nigeria and by extension, the rape of our people. This is why business in Nigeria continues as usual—which means, rotten, vicious business—as Nigeria continues in its death throes in a freefall in the abyss.
Any place where the people and their so-called leaders do not and will not know what agreements are in place; what signed documents are operative, and or do not have an inclination, never mind the will, to carry out the mandates of such agreements, is doomed to fail. Just like Nigeria has. Any governance structure where the leaders refuse to follow the constitution and bylaws, or the Charter, has already failed, and would soon drag the people down with it. Just look at Nigeria. Usually, the so-called leaders then rely on their own persons, whims, and idiocy to rule; and personal loyalty forcibly extracted by and sworn to the pompous and arrogant pseudo-leaders (rather than loyalty to the people and the people’s well-being, as enshrined in the people’s Charter, Constitution or Charter, and or the people’s Laws), becomes the most important thing to them, and the only way to do business. And, the way to Hell for the people and their land, we must add. For sure, this is Nigeria today and for the foreseeable future.
The only reason why Nigerian so-called leaders can get away today with such is because the Nigerian people are spineless cowards, loudmouths and hypocrites who would rather “happily” (they claim), lie through their teeth as “proudly Nigerian” (another cynical and empty boast) because it is the passive thing to do, instead of stand up and brave the consequences of sacking these frauds calling themselves Nigeria’s leaders, and demand that everyone follow Nigeria’s Constitution—whatever such a Constitution is; or at least, abide by Nigeria’s written laws.
We are upset today that Biafrans are acting like Nigerians. We have a Charter, and the leadership of Biafran organizations at home do not even acknowledge, talk less of, study the Charter and implement it. Our Biafran people have not read the Charter; our Biafran people are not demanding that their leaders follow the Charter, else, get out of the way. The struggle for Biafra actualization is not a Leadership’s struggle: it is the People’s Fight, the People’s Struggle, through and through. The people must now learn how to take over the struggle and defend their gains, and get their leaders to conform, else get new leaders that will conform, to the people’s desires as documented in the Biafra Charter. “We, the people,” have to implement that Charter today; and, we must all study that Biafra Charter. Otherwise, Nigeria will be better than us—what a curse: God forbid!
Ghana! Remember a few years ago when Ghanaians were flocking into Nigeria, acting with usual Ghanaian honesty and hard-work ethic, to make use of the opportunities being squandered by Nigerians in corruption? Well, Nigeria kicked out the Ghanaians. Guess what? The Ghanaians did not crawl back to Nigeria on their bellies. They did not beg and cry on their knees to be let back into Nigeria to receive more floggings, beatings and humiliation at the hands of Nigeria. No, instead, the Ghanaians left Nigeria. Not only that, they decided to go back to their own country, Ghana and then, build up their own country. In a few short years, in less than a fraction of a generational period, Ghanaians turned Ghana to the Capital State of West Africa, if not sub-Saharan Africa. From around the world today, all roads leading to Africa intersect in or pass through Ghana. Education in Ghana is on par with Education in the US and the West. The Rule of Law is not just a convenient phrase in Ghana: it is standard practice and the custom—a huge commitment by the people of Ghana to their Constitution and derivative Laws. Health Care, Research, Economy, Social Services, Public amenities, Public Welfare and Security are all being managed like in other successful advanced countries.
How long did it take Ghana to make this transformation? In less time than it took Nigeria’s PDP and Obasanjo to beat to death and bury the already comatose people of Nigeria. How long? In less time than the period in-between the peaks of the cycles of violence in Northern Nigeria targeting the Igbo and other Biafrans, their property and businesses for destruction and annihilation. How long? “...just like that!” as the saying goes.
Fellow Biafrans: we won’t take anything away from Ghana’s Glory by stating that this could have been us, Biafra. Suffice it to see where we could have been today. When our so-called leaders defend one-Nigeria, and the others turn apologists for one-Nigeria, as the rest deny the reality of our non-existent future and fortunes in Nigeria, just remember what Ghana has proved. While our people still crawl back to Northern Nigeria today to await the next round of their own murder, and place themselves at the receiving end of senseless hate crimes and ethnic-directed mayhem by Northern Jihadists, in a place where they have been told repeatedly that they are neither welcome nor wanted, Ghana stands out as the right example: the right response at the right time. So, look carefully at Ghana: see what we, Biafra, could be! Look at Ghana, and see where we, Biafra, will be! A word, they say, is enough for the wise.
Another kind of question: Where are Uchenna Madu and seven others or so whose unconscionably high bail conditions have been reduced, according to the Nigerian courts? Where are all the other Biafrans and MASSOB members still being held in Nigeria’s jails? We call on Nigeria to release all MASSOB members currently being held in Nigeria’s jails. Today.
Biafra alive! Because it is God Who makes it so. This year, 2009, WE MAKE it really 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.
