It is my pleasure to use this medium to contribute my own quota on the way forward regarding the nightmarish Biafra struggle against Nigeria. As you can see, Biafra has been a dangerous bone in the throat of Nigeria.
Recently, Nigeria has been reeling in a serous mess due to the formidable and irreconcilable stand of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) globally, under the able leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu towards the restoration of the sovereignty of the nation of Biafra. Despite the traps/ambushes laid by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) which the Nigerian government has unavoidably fallen into, due to it’s desperation to maintain a delusional one Nigeria, there is still a way out for the country, however.
The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) globally, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has unarguably remained till date, a peaceful, highly intelligent and disciplined freedom fighter, right from onset. I have painstakingly studied him and the outcome of that study and observation obviously show that he is not waging war against the Nigerian State but rather, he mostly applies diplomacy and intelligence in his pursuits while yet expecting the Nigerian government to intelligently comply. It has proven over time to be fruitless as the Nigerian government has chosen to remain adamantly unlearning. That has even created more room for the resolutness of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), for the total dismemberment of the Nigerian forced entity.
These are the easiest ways for the Nigerian government to permanently end the Biafra agitation and no man even within the old Eastern region will continue with the Biafra agitations whether it be Mazi Nnamdi Kanu or not. The options in accordance with the IPOB leader’s stance are:
(1) The current Nigerian President is not Muhammadu Buhari. The government must have to conduct a necessary DNA test that will prove otherwise which will be monitored by international doctors and communities. If my proof is false, I will drop BIAFRA agitation.
(2) Let all the professors in Nigeria challenge me in an open debate that will be monitored by international observers and if I do not defeat them in twenty minutes, I hands off the struggle.
Rather than for the Nigerian government led by Muhammadu Buhari to welcome the challenges in good fate, it resorted to the use of guns and bullets against IPOB family members. It is impossible to beat a child and tell he/her, not to cry. The above options will be in the best interest of Nigeria and her citizens to embrace before it becomes too late. This is unlike when Mazi Nnamdi Kanu called for a dialogue but those in Aso Rock declined. The more the Nigerian government ignores laudable civilized options and requests, the more he gets vindicated, which is an additional boast to the struggle.
I therefore advice Nigerians to compel their President to undergo the DNA test and stage a debate that will be inclusive of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. That is the only peaceful, non disgraceful escape route for Nigeria and her handlers.
A word is enough for the wise!
