Here is one who is pregnant with malice, conceives evil and brings forth lies. He dogged a pit, dogged it so deep; and in the trap he has made, he will fall-in. His malice will recoil on him; on his own head his evil plans will fail.
On 19th January, 2017, the British High Commission to Nigeria, Ambassador Paul Arkwright said that "the United Kingdom is in full support of a united, peaceful and prosperous Nigeria". Mr Arkwright, who spoke in an interview, said that it was too late for Nigerians to continue to blame the underdevelopment of Nigeria on the amalgamation of Nigeria in 1914, pointing out that a lot had taken place since the country attained independence in 1960. Paul Arkwright said, “1914 is a rather long time ago and it’s a bit too convenient to blame the British for anything that happened over a hundred years ago. He continued “Nigeria has been independent since 1960, Nigeria is a proud and rightly independent sovereign country, so whatever happened in the past is not worth raking over, or blaming one side or another. But I would say the UK recognizes a unified Nigeria”.
For posterity sake, I wish to bring to the conscience of humanity not just Britain alone, that supporting almighty One Nigeria is never a problem and they shouldn't loose sleep about it because Biafra existed thousands of years before the evil amalgamation of 1914 orchestrated by the British Empire through Lord Lugard and his wife Shaw for the subjugation and enslavement of the indigenous people and to further expand her territorial conquest in Africa; the amalgamation remains fraudulent and evil , and has claimed life of innocent people till date and until dismantled the killings continues.
However, on 6th April, 2017, he also delivered a lesson titled “Brexit: Lessons, Challenges and Opportunities for Nigeria” where he repeated the same statement that UK believes in one indivisible Nigeria. His words read as follows “Britain is as committed as ever to working with our international partners to achieve a safer, healthier and more prosperous planet. The decision the British people made on 23rd June 2016 to leave the EU was a momentous one. It will lead to change, and much detail about that change is still uncertain. But there are some very important certainties, and I want to focus on those this morning. Our Prime Minister, Theresa May, has made a very clear statement: “Brexit means Brexit, and we are going to make a success of it.” She has also been clear that making a success of Brexit is the most important task of the British government and there will be many elements to making Brexit a success.
Invariably, the hypothetical stance of the British government as regards to who want to opt-out of Nigeria or not is mind blowing, It is either that Mr Arkwright is feigning ignorance of the rising demand for freedom of people all over the world of which Biafrans are part of, or he is being economical with the truth of happenings world over. It is noteworthy to remind all discerning minds and lovers of freedom that IPOB ably led by Nnamdi Kanu officially launched BIAFREXIT hours after Britain voted to leave EU with their own BREXIT; and their commitment to supporting Nigeria will not stand the taste of time because Biafrans has made a decision that "BIAFREXIT means BIAFREXIT" which is completely inevitable as Biafra restoration is a task that must be accomplished successfully. The British has killed many people in her quest to maintain territorial integrity of Nigeria forgetting Bakassi Peninsula which was ceded to Cameroon and Scotland which want to opt-out of the UK to have their own country. But, as for Biafrans self-independent it a task that must be accomplished.
Moreover, it is rather disheartening for the British that opted out of EU to refuse to ask why Biafrans also want to opt-out of Nigeria? Britain has maintained that they are being held back in the EU, and that the duty charge/bills being imposed on businesses which add little or no gain or value to the collective growth or wellbeing of her citizens is never advantageous to them. They also cited sovereignty and democracy, and that they wanted to take back full control of their borders and reduce the number of people coming to live and/or work therein.
Prime Minister Theresa May has said one of the main messages she has taken from the Leave vote was that the British people want to see a reduction in immigration. But surprisingly, Biafrans will fall victim of this immigration checks/reduction by the British government because they are the most travelled species on the earth. Biafrans are not in any way against the fact that the British people has voted to take back their land and as well have full control of their borders; but will continue to condemn the British evil plans to keep enslaving a people while wanting the best for her citizens. What a fraudulent and deceitful stance but to their imagination Biafra must be restored in their watchful eyes and only a sovereign Biafran state will drastically bring about the desired reduction in immigrants, in that, it will call for Biafra mass return to the blessed land of Biafra. Biafrans want to be a free people on their own land thats why they have vowed to take back their land and also control their own borders, dignity, identify and to be able to develop at their own pace; its their inalienable right and are ever determined to self-emancipate themselves from Nigeria's subjugation.
Furthermore, Mr. Paul Arkwright, could now see the hand writing on the wall; that nothing will stop a determined people from reclaiming their sovereignty irrespective of the challenges they may face? Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who is British citizen has been held in prison for up to 2years now, but Mr. Arkwright has never made any public statement to condemning the illegality of his incarceration.
Mr. Paul Arkwright, how could you be so wicked and inhumane not to see the killings that have been going on in Nigeria? The killing of unarmed IPOB members have been on going in Nigeria for a long time now, of which according to Amnesty over 150 (though the number was higher than what the report gave) of their members have been killed by Nigeria combined military forces but Mr. Arkwright have only remained silent in support of it. So many innocent and hapless Nigerians have been killed by the terrorist herdsmen and Mr. Ambassador has never raised an eyeball in condemnation of such barbaric act.
Seems corruption in Nigeria has overwhelmed your sense of reasoning and judgment. When wickedness eat up your conscience, it will turn you from human being to human beast, Mr. Arkwright, should as a matter of sanity guard his utterances because it cannot stop a determined people of Biafra from restoring their inheritance.
