Biafra: The Tithes and the Taunted Rejoicing Ikechukwu Enyiagu writes for Radio Biafra Editorial Board in response to reactions to the Editorial of 6 May 2013 This piece takes a closer look at the principle of God’s demand to tithing in the church; His view, intention and direction for its full utilization. It equally intends to highlight the place of the tither, who is qualified to tithe, who is qualified to receive the tithes, the right church and altar to tithe and the place of the church in the symbiotic tithing commitments.
Paying Tithe to African Pastors is Sin against GOD-The Dead Churches & Satanic Pastors By Lovina Iburene Originally the church is not a building but a local congregation of Christians . . . Christ followers with Christ-like qualities . . . entry is by confession of Christ . . . a believer who is in a state of innocence.
Only Igbos can Stop the problems in Igboland; only Biafrans can get Biafra The reason why crime and all manner of evil continue to persist in Biafra and especially Igboland today is because those that are better placed to speak up for the down trodden impoverished and enslaved masses have all abandoned the people to a cabal of insincere and compromised politicians and rulers. These people, most of whom are abroad-especially those in Europe, United States and Australia look the other way as their own flesh and blood are hunted and slaughtered on a daily basis across Northern Nigeria. They put immediate family considerations over and above the well being of their people.
Corrupt Igbo Politicians and Compromised Freedom Fighters not welcome at Radio Biafra The need to reactivate Radio Biafra London was borne out of recognition that Igbos are the only ethnic group being singled out, hunted and killed like wild animals all over Nigeria. Even Boko Haram knows that Igbos are too divided, too weak and consumed by pursuit of money to be concerned about defending the lives of their own people living in Northern Nigeria. No other race is being targeted the way Igbos are in Nigeria today, not even the so-called minorities. To be killed and unable to speak out is the ultimate humiliation any race can endure. We as a people cannot continue to live like this.
Why Igbos in Hausa/Fulani Northern Nigeria are doomed Extracts of interview between Ohaneze Ndigbo Kano leader Chief Idika and group of American journalists before the latest multiple Kano bombings that claimed over 81 lives including that of Ikechukwu Anosike from Ndagbo Isiama Afaraukwu Ibeku Umuahia Abia State. QUESTION: Sir, last year, there was a coordinated series of attacks in Kano that left many people dead. Knowing that Kano is a hotbed of terrorism, why do you people stay?”
Who says the North is afraid of break-up? Certainly not! The Northern Hausa/Fulani people were the first to threaten the Nigerian federation with secession when on the eve of the birth of an independent country they vowed to break away if 50% of the legislative seat was not given to them. The North again in 1966 after their successful ethnic cleansing with their so-called counter coup tagged Araba (meaning break-up/separation in Hausa language)with Yakubu Gowon displaying the Northern flag, national anthem and other paraphernalia of state went ahead to say that “the basis of unity does not exist”. The North pulled back after having quenched their lust for blood with the death of 300,000 Igbos living in the North and Yorubaland and having received sound advice from the British and American diplomats not divide the country when they can have the whole empire to control.
Nigeria is the Angel of Death Through the years-from 1945 to be exact-to the present day, various Islamic movements with Jihadist tendencies have risen in the North, Middle Belt and Western regions of Nigeria to attack and kill Igbo people and other Christian ethnic groups from Eastern Nigeria.
The intellectual emptiness of One Nigeria apologists For those that readily dismiss the sanctity and importance of distinct ethnic and cultural uniqueness of the various groups conscripted to make up One Nigeria and advocate instead that dissolution of these divergent cultures into one cauldron of diversity are guilty of intellectual dishonesty. This flawed and misleading line of argument used to justify the continued subjugation of millions of people is what is holding back meaningful human development in Nigeria that gave rise to the daily spectacle of bloodbath that has horrified the world.
We are not asking for independence from Nigeria, what we are demanding is that we be returned to where we were before the zoo (Nigeria) was created by the masters of creation from Europe. Only God in heaven can create a nation. Europeans are not God and should not be involved in the process of creating new nations from the good Lord himself already made. Anybody that accepts the existence of One Nigeria is by default acknowledging that Europeans are in effect the God of creation of Black Africans worthy to worshipped and praised. We might as well substitute the picture of Christ with that of Lord Luggard in our churches.
Some people responded to my write up two days ago Friday 26 April 2013 enquiring what how they can help Radio Biafra continue what its work. Shortly after the publication of the piece I got a phone call and was asked by the director if I would come to the studio in London to defend what I had written. Despite being many miles away from London, I decided to honor the invitation and duly participated in the broadcast on Friday evening. Having taking part in a live broadcast, I am now glad I did.
