For September 18, 2009

You have heard the news; now, the analysis…

Fellow Biafrans:

We use the heart-warming and encouraging story of a 16-year old Biafran boy who designed, built and displayed a functional motorized vehicle recently (after building an innovative prototype house last year), to speak for us today. The Spirit of invention and innovation, super-star Talent and "can-do," "can-deliver" ability, which all describe the quintessential Biafran Spirit, remains alive today, and is assured for the future. Now reminded again by this demonstration, we want that Spirit to reign over us today—in the present.

This, of course, is not the first or only demonstration of the Biafra Spirit, which was fully tested and proven during the Biafran War, while before that, it was such common place as to not require special highlighting. In the Engineering area, distinguished, albeit much older, Dr. Ezekiel Izuogu, had designed and produced indigenous automobiles, both petrol/gas-operated and electric. That we lost the Biafra War does not mean that we lost Biafra or that we lost the Biafra Spirit: no. Both Biafra and the Biafra Spirit are still alive, perhaps, only temporarily slowed up!

So, let’s start with our own Youth and other Biafrans. The solution to our problem with one-Nigeria today is not to turn to crime, whether kidnapping or armed robbery or corruption or deadly Nigeria partisan politics or Abuja money games—these are all criminal activities. No. The solution cannot be found in the act of our people deserting Biafraland at all costs, which has led to outcomes where the Biafra Spirit has been literally squeezed out or the very life has been squeezed out of such "runners," rendering them seriously compromised or outrightly dead in every sense of the word, on the way to, and even at their supposedly greener pastures. No. The solution to our problem with one Nigeria lies in always understanding that we are a naturally gifted and talented people; that one-Nigeria is extremely determined and totally committed to suppressing us, neutralizing our talents, exploiting us and essentially getting rid of us, along with any traces of our existence. Having realized this, our only option is to break out of one-Nigeria without any further delay; in this regard, we do not, and will refuse to, cooperate with Nigeria, but must engage in serious effective activism with the sole goal of complete separation from Nigeria, in actualizing Biafra, We must use all our pent-up and justified anger on Nigeria, against Nigeria and to leave Nigeria—yes!—until we achieve our goal of Independent and Sovereign Biafra, yes; not against our own people, not to desecrate our own land nor to soil our own hand nor to damage our own Divine Soul, No!

If our 16-year old hero of this story remains under one-Nigeria (symbolizing our current collective status) much longer, he will certainly be smothered, and nothing will come of his talents and efforts. His story already validates the insurmountable difficulties he is having getting support and promotion (and more pertinent education even—imagine that!), all the result of Nigeria’s deliberate malice. We know. After all, Dr. Izuogu’s inventions were actually suppressed directly by Nigeria; we had to resort to calling Dr. Izuogu "a fool" because he insisted on embracing and clinging to one-Nigeria (Dr. Izuogu in fact stated that he wanted to dedicate his inventions to Nigeria), even as it was clear to him and to all that all Nigeria really wanted to do (and has actually succeeded in doing), is to destroy his work and to make sure that no credit should ever come to him in any form or shape in that regard. It is the same shameful label that we attach to the rest of the Igbo and other Biafran so-called "leaders" who are rooting for one-Nigeria when there is every reason not to.

To make sure that no one claims that he or she does not get it, we remind you all of the most recent pronouncements from Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), the Awusa/Fulani leadership mouthpiece which controls already Islamized, Northern Muslim-dominated, Nigeria. This group, which reflects the pernicious parasitism of the Awusa/Fulani on us, went on record to state that Nigeria cannot, should not, and will not be restructured into the original 3 autonomous or truly federating Regions as existed before, because, according to ACF, none of their Nigeria’s current 36 States is viable today without the funds coming from the centralized non-federal government of Nigeria today; hence, 3 autonomous Regions cannot survive on their own either. What an inanity of an argument! if not for the fact that Islamized Nigeria will gladly implement ACF’s pronouncements. (Obvious question: what is the source, anyway, of their non-federal centralized Nigerian government money, if not Biafra’s Oil?) Essentially, in the parasitic mind and cheating mindset of ACF and its self-serving reckoning, "Since the parasite is being adequately and handsomely supplied by the hapless victim-host, why change the parasite-favorable structure? This arrangement will not and should not be changed." Anyone still does not get it?

But, the most indicting aspect of ACF’s idea is that, by its own reckoning, their Nigeria’s States are not, and could not be, independently productive and as such, each couldn’t autonomously support its own self. We can easily dismiss this nonsense by advising ACF to speak only for their Nigeria’s Muslim States which it represents, and wherein parasitic laziness and indolence is enthroned, cultivated and rubbed properly into their culture. This status, anyone can understand. However, we must point out the contrast: Biafrans work hard. Biafrans know that we can and will survive independently; and in fact, have survived and thrived independently. We do not rely on any other group’s resources. We do not reap where we did not sow. We abhor the parasitic mode of existence. We live on Merit. We think. We invent. We deploy. We produce. We deliver. We find ways to do all this. Then, we do it all, all over again. Thus, we thrive—on our own.

It is this brazen bloodsucking message of ACF’s and policy of parasitism and laziness that Nigeria has imposed on all of us, wherein we are the victims. It is this wicked policy by Nigeria that we are groaning and dying under all along and at the very moment, a policy (now re-articulated by the ACF) to stop any efforts by our people that would lead to our own people standing on our own, succeeding and thriving on our own. That’s Nigeria for you, in a nutshell. That’s our problem with one-Nigeria. That’s the situation that we must remedy, a structure and imposition that we will not live and die under any more, but must break and break away from completely, right away. That’s what Biafra actualization is all about; that’s why Biafra is the answer.

Support Biafra actualization. Biafra is the only basis for hope for our hope-denied people; Biafra is both the promise and the delivery of a bright future for our people, a future of untold, great opportunities, a future that is right for a super-talented people. Biafra is a vessel which accommodates our needs and aspirations; an engine which engages and harnesses our numerous natural and acquired talents. Not Nigeria—no! Biafra, yes! Biafra. Biafra always.

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 ( now continues in Igbo, one of the Biafran languages.
