6th June 2017
I was really disappointed on my observation that some Biafrans, especially those trading at Dei Dei International building materials section here in Abuja, despite the order given by the leadership of IPOB for the 30th of May 2017 Remembrance Day, flouted the order for their brisk businesses. But my countenance was however brightened up by the dogged resolve of Biafrans at Timber section, zone 3, who brushed aside all their businesses and monetary gains for the observation of the Sit-At-Home order as declared. This to me is a step in the right direction, as I quickly retired to my home to monitor developments via social media.
The pictorial clips posted by reporters from Biafraland of massively deserted streets, roads, markets and other business centres were really encouraging which jolted me into further investigations on how Ogbete main market in Enugu particularly fared as the market traders chairman there had earlier boasted and threatened non-compliance by some feelers that preceded the May 30th day. However, to the disgrace of the saboteurs, the resilient Biafrans in the market stood their ground by massively observing the Heroes and Heroines Remembrance Day.
As the successful resolve of the Biafrans in this market thrilled my heart, I concluded that there exists no other proof for the world to consent to a just demand for Biafra Restoration. Despite the vampiric onslaught of the Nigeria security operatives against us variously with their unprovoked killings during previous peaceful protests, our unanimous resolve this time around to Sit At Home has made a very big statement to our deriders. They have now seen our uncompromising quest to go. This exercise to me, is a Mini-Referendum. The enlightened approach to our freedom drive has therefore become phenomenal.
It was fulfilling to me as the entire media organisations, both within and outside Nigeria, carried the news of the spectacular Sit At Home remembrance exercise later in the day. This reminded of the words of our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu that "WE WILL NOT PAY A DIME TO THE MEDIA HOUSES FOR THE REPORTAGE OF BIAFRAN NEWS BUT RATHER, THEY WILL BE FORCED TO DO SO WHEN THE TIME COMES". This prophesy came to fulfillment before my very eyes on the 30th of May 2017 and few days following. In view of the foregoing, you can now judge for yourself who really is in charge in the entire Biafraland. Is it the State Governors, the Senators or Mazi Nnamdi Kanu?
The onus is now on the Biafran career politicians to cash into this opportunity and join hands with the IPOB family to strongly and uncompromisingly call on the civilised International community to organise a Referendum that will usher in the Biafran nation. The Nigerian government must be compelled within the ambit of International laws to comply with this demand.
Honestly, I wept for the misguided few who contrary to laid down IPOB leadership structures and principles, went ahead to float a renegade Radio Station In the United States of America, out of greed and other clandestine interests. This is nowhere to be found meaningful even on the social media network.
The IPOB under the able leadership command of NNAMDI KANU and his deputy, UCHE MEFOR etc, protested in over 76 countries of the world and even made a strong presentation to the White House in the USA. So it beats one's imagination who this renegade group with Radio Biafra International, based in US, is leading and representing. The world cannot be deceived. The authentic voice of Biafrans is Radio Biafra London ably licensed and commissioned for the Biafran restoration project under Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
Biafra is imminently on her way out of the evil forest called Nigeria which was put together by the British in 1914.
There is absolutely no power under heaven that can truncate this program
IT IS SETTLED, SEALED AND DELIVERED!
