Neither Trump nor Clinton Can Give Biafra Independence; Biafrans Alone Can Determine Their Fate

I want to come forewarned and boldly declare that neither Donald Trump nor Clinton can give Biafra independence; it is a usual thing to support a candidate over another but Donald nor Clinton giving Biafra Independence is impossible. The people of Biafra hold their destiny; it is their right to get Biafra or leave it and only Biafrans can decide their future. Freedom is not given but fiercely taken; any day the people pauses to wait for their freedom to be given; then they have made a mistake that would cost them their efforts so far. It is understandable that the people of Biafra seek or favour a candidate that would be neutral and would not politicize their aim or struggle. Trump seems to give them a better option that they today pray and support Trump in the United State election; what Biafrans feel or want don’t count directly because Biafrans cannot vote there (except those who are Biafran-American citizens). They only have opportunity to relentlessly restore their nation here and that should be the focus.
I have severally heard the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra say that nobody or country can give us Biafra; he made it clear that the future of Biafra lies in the hands of one Supreme, which is Chukwu Okike Abiama. Only Him alone has the power to give Biafra; let us calm down and evaluate before we get out of the track. It is not in the hands or within the power of any man to restore the kingdom of God for God; only Him alone can restore his Kingdom. If Chukwu Okike Abiama wants to use Trump or Clinton; then he would use him or her in due time. Trump cannot give Biafra because freedom is not given but taken; it is a good thing to massively support Trump but is another thing to hope he can restore Biafra.
I have not forgotten that Biafrans support Donald Trump; as a matter of fact; I faced a lot of questions as the first Biafran Journalist to write pro-Trump article which later festered into support for Trump. There is no way we can rule out that either Clinton will not assist to restore Biafra; if Chukwu Okike Abiama will restore Biafra, he would however do it in a miraculous way. Whoever told you that Buhari will bring Biafra to this point of certainty; you would doubt with everything you had. Had Jonathan stayed in power; who knows what would be of Biafra today? You must understand that anybody that takes the seat of power in America should only motivate Biafra and not make us lazy. Clinton or Donald has a little to contribute as larger part of our independence depends on us.
The people of Biafra must know that any day they stop agitating or asking for Biafra or allow themselves to be affected by circumstance; then it is clear we don’t need Biafra. Self determination is indigenous and only the people can determine for themselves.
