Nigerians will pretend to be unaware until you hit the limit of absurdities. Nearly five years now they sheepishly followed Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd) and allowed him to revel in the gale of dominant and untouchable warrior. He privatized, Muslimized, northernized, and fulanized governance with brazen impunity. The southwest have answered him with Amotekun. Then his fulanized supreme court responded with yet another spurious verdict on Imo state election petitions.
The apex court created its own results by which it delivered a ruling in which the number of votes exceeded the number of accredited voters. It delivered that verdict to confirm to Nigerians that the man Buhari foisted on the apex court lacked basic knowledge of arithmetic. He was a sharia judge. Tongues are wagging. Masses are out on the streets protesting. But beyond the entire abracadabra lies the evident truth that Nigerians have taken a stand to resist the tyrant.
The southwest spoke with Amotekun. Just yesterday a team of Monarchs from both the hinterland and riverine areas of Biafra who paid a condolence visit to the home of the Supreme Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, spoke boldly in support of Biafra. They seem fed up with being treated as second rate in their own homes. Prof. Itse Sagay, if anyone has noticed, has recently been voicing displeasure over the mistreatment of southern Nigeria. The cookies are crumbling.
The Buhari government has helped in no small measures to advance the course of IPOB. Any southerner who is yet to realize that we have been enslaved all the while by the Fulani north must be an irredeemable moron. The west is not going back on Amotekun, and the east is not going back on the independent state of Biafra. The first step to self-reliant state is to have a strong military. The southwest just inaugurated its own army.
Second is to orientate that army and equip it. Third is to call for a peaceful negotiated exit, or you call the bluff of the authority. You are able to defend yourself. Things are moving so fast now, and the new independent Biafra may come sooner than we imagined. We have to get ready. We have to start working on the development and industrialization blueprints. We have to start working on what kind of military and police force we want. We have to start mapping out the region and how to hit the ground running. We have to start working on what kind of education we want for our children. We must not be caught unprepared.
In one of my previous articles, I asserted that the coming of Biafra is now inevitable. Nigeria’s breakup is imminent. The losers will be northern Nigeria. However much they have taken out of the southern region cannot help it. Boko Haram, Fulani herdsmen, and bandits – terrorist organizations now assembled as Jihad army for Islamic conquest of the south – will turn around to destroy the north.
Biafra will survive because it will be led by a liberator, not a politician. The liberator who lost both parents in the course of the struggle would want to prove a point by taking Biafra to the summit of economic, technology and military power. He would want nothing else.
