THINGS NIGERIANS MUST KNOW BEFORE CASTIGATING NNAMDI KANU & BIAFRA AGITATORS

66809 3,045

I have read with dismay so many articles full of lies and misleading information on why Nnamdi Kanu and other Biafra agitators must be seen as “no good”. Kanu has been labelled all sorts in a bid to dissuade his followers.
I am certainly not an admirer of his approach and lack of tact in his use of words. I am equally not an advocate of violence or war as means of achieving independence. The United Nations charter provides for the right of a people to self determination, even if Nigeria government continues with the argument of not having “Referendum” enshrined in the constitution. Actualization of Biafra in today’s age need not go the way of war like witnessed in 1967 – 70. It is only lack of information that has continued to push with the argument of most agitators not witnessing the Biafran war and all that.

A lot have argued that because Kanu has dual citizenship, he can never mean well for his people. Some have equally given a false analysis of how his father as village head receives salary/payment from government of Nigeria. These are false.
Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu equally lived his entire childhood/youth life in the UK where he had his education up to Masters Degree level, yet he returned to Nigeria to become most educated officer in the Nigerian Army at the time, before leading the Biafra cessation owing to injustice, massive killing of Igbos and refusal of the Gowon administration to abide by the Aburi Accord on the way forward for a United Nigeria.

Furthermore, ….village heads don’t receive nothing from Federal but State governments. Igbo people’s natural resources are still being tapped and managed by Federal Govt of Nigeria, so why won’t they benefit from what God has given them?
Why are we under the illusion that because Biafra is being asked for as an independent nation, it means the people can’t be part of the national cake of Nigeria? Until freedom is granted they still answer Nigerians and must continue to clutch the passport. Why is Biafra agitation so scorned when Buhari recognized on the floor of UN General Assembly, the rights of the people of Palestine to self determination? Did Nigeria not send troops to East Timor during their agitation? Was our troops not part of the organizing of the UN supervised referendum that freed East Timor from Indonesia just about 15 years ago? Why do we not research and why do we hate and scorn ourselves this much?

The Igbo political elites and business men who have investments in other parts of the country do not seem to understand that the masses have lost trust in their leadership. They are yet to see beyond the eulogies they enjoy at public functions and the praise singing from those close to them who do so on account of financial benefits.
The earlier Ohaneze consults widely with the people (Oha) and do less of strategizing with the opinion of the elites (Ezes), the better for the leadership. Nnamdi Kanu should equally be advised to do more consulting before making public statements that could hurt the movement and the unity of the people of the region that will constitute Biafra. He must show respect to the elders, especially the new leadership of Ohaneze which has shown more commitment to the wishes of the people than previous executives.

Our young ones must be encouraged to read widely to understand the issues at hand before making unguided comments. A well structured Nigeria where justice and equal opportunity abound would have been the most ideal, but obviously that hasn’t worked due to the selfish desires of very few who believe it’s their rights to lead perpetually and with impunity.

  1. One more thing. In my opinion that there are quite a few travel insurance web sites of reliable companies than enable you to enter your trip details and have you the rates. You can also purchase an international travel insurance policy on the web by using your own credit card. Everything you should do would be to enter your current travel information and you can see the plans side-by-side. Simply find the program that suits your finances and needs and after that use your credit card to buy them. Travel insurance online is a good way to search for a reliable company regarding international holiday insurance. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
