One Day The River Will Overflow: A Call For Amendment

One Day The River Will Overflow: A Call For Amendment

It's amazing how human beings ever enjoy the designs of the almighty Creator without really doing so in recognition to some patterns and principles that the almighty has layed.

Human enjoy living on the plain ground for instance, but never takes thought on preserving the mountains, never thought in their widest imaginations that the rivers that surround them are curbed by some spiritual forces from overflowing into the plain levels where humans inhabit.

What if we break the laws that position these spiritual forces, and thereby stay them away from their continuous curb to the rivers? What if the rivers overflow to the covering of all plain lands, leaving only the mountains as a save-haven?

In bringing home the message of this article; it will be specifically directed to the political and religious leaders of Nigeria, most especially in Biafra land.
An ancient Igbo adage says "if the dead body of another man's son is on the head, it appears to the roadside beholder like a logg of wood". Some will be urged to say things like these, "Thank God I am not the one affected" and by saying that, loose feelings of pity to the deceased. It will not cease to be your turn tomorrow.

So, the Nigerian leaders of the above mentioned class are purely in the error of misinterpreting their present State of comfort as immunity to harvock. The worst hit are the politicians. And amongst these, the south east politicians are the worst. This is very obvious, unlike other leaders of other regions who have mastered the courage to boldly mount up security measures to protect their region. The South East leaders have seen no reason to speak up for their people in any way.  They see no value in the life of their fellow citizens anymore.
It is obvious because they have developed a mind that is void of feelings for their fellow humans.They have done all in their power to bury every truth that could challenge their stand, but will they bury it forever? Of course No! They are forgetting that one day will come when the river will overflow.

They have forgotten that their fulani masters never loved them for whom they are. They are just tools in their hands which will only be valued for as long as it is useful. In the ignorance of this, the politicians have on the directives of their slave masters, set fire in the dwellings of their kinsmen.

On the side of the religion, the church leaders are the worst, control majority  in the society,  interested only in the offerings and tithes. They don't believe to have any reason to boldly stand and make use of their influential to help the contributors, (Church Members) . The church leaders, hypocritically convince them to be weak life, and hope for heaven they might not go if did not really fight in defense of themselves.

One thing is certain,  the situation of the people in this expired Nigeria is now disturbing and will one day entertain the wicked guest of terror that others have been witnessing at the hands of these Fulani government. The leaders will not be an exception. They have not cared to quench the fire which they set.

When the river will overflow, "Had I know" will be there wish. Put off the fire on the mountain now before the sunset.

Nigeria: Eastern Political Puppets And The Game Of Self Destruction

Eastern Political Puppets And The Game Of Self Destruction

By Elochukwu Nicholas Ohagi
For Family Writers Press

Until South East leaders come home to support Biafra and stand in solidarity with their own people; and desist from worshipping the caliphate for slavish political favours, they will continue to  be imprisoned and entangled by their Fulani Masters.

The caliphate that makes them will still turn around to destroy them. They will send them to prison and grow another stooge whom they will also destroy at their convenient time.

Since the civil war ended, most Easterners with political ambitions  have consistently nursed this mentality that standing against what their people want is the road to political relevance in Nigeria. They disrespect their people and agree to whatever their people reject. They are in support of RUGA, whereas their people have rejected RUGA totally. They protect the Fulani herdsmen killing their people, but support the killing of IPOB activists, their own people.

A lot of people don't know that without the endorsement of the Southeast Governors and the Senators, there wouldn't have been any Python Dance. That's because the caliphate, no matter how powerful and strong they are will never invade Southeast without the agreement from their Southeast political stooges. That's because they won't want any backlash.

The Southeast leaders jealously feared the genuine and well deserved fame Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was generating rapidly across Biafra land. Nnamdi Kanu became a thorn in their flesh and a threat to their dormancy and ineptitude. Their betrayals of their own people and preference of the Fulani invaders foreigners over their own people made them archenemies of the people who rallied round Nnamdi Kanu. But instead of countering the IPOB leader with good governance and fearlessness in the face of the caliphate so as to attract the love of the people to themselves; they tragically decided to employ the services of the northern barbarians to wipe out their own people.

The barbarians came, encircled Umuahia and the entire Biafra land, claiming they are on routine military exercise. Tell me how and why on earth the Nigeria military suddenly saw  Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's residence and his Father's palace as the only place to stage their so called training or whatever codename they masqueraded it with. The answer is not farfetched, as the bloodthirsty state sponsored assassins opened fire, gunning down 28 youths, one Lady and a dog inside the Royal Family. The Southeast slaves masquerading as leaders wanted Nnamdi Kanu dead by all means. That's their only way of stopping him.

Those that still doubt the fact that Southeast leaders have a hand in the Python dance mayhem, should tell us why they maintained silence as their people are gunned down. Why is it that they didn't utter a word in condemnation? Have you ever seen Nigeria military go after Fulani herdsmen, even though they kill and wipe out villages? Have you seen Yoruba leaders allow Nigeria Military to come in and wipe out their youths? Such unforgivable level of betrayal and backstabbing is only possible in the East. IPOB killed no one and harmed no one. IPOB is simply protesting against gross injustices and demanding for referendum, which is absolutely within their rights.

The court just absolved Governor of Kano state, Mr Ganduje from every bribery allegations, yet the same Court found Orji Uzor Kanu guilty. Ganduje was caught on video over thousands of dollars bribery scandal, but the caliphate said he isn't guilty.
Yet, the slaves masquerading as Eastern leaders have refused to read the handwriting on the wall and thread cautiously.

Hear me out now. We are not begging the puppets to stop worshipping the caliphate, they can keep on enslaving themselves, one thing is certain; they will all turn out losers at the end of the day. The people will rise up and take back the power that truly belong to them, and only then will they understand disastrous consequences of their actions.

Doubters will see it happen before their very eyes.

Opinion: How Biafra Referendum Will Look Like

Opinion: How Biafra Referendum Will Look Like

I am against the school of thought that always say that referendum will settle everything. For me, the only thing referendum will settle is which people will and will not be in Biafra. When you raise certain issues, some people will tell you to stop. Their reason for telling you to stop is that they believe that referendum will settle it.

It is important that we understand what we are going into. It is never proper that we vote in ignorance. Voting in ignorance will make someone that should vote yes to vote no and  those that supposed to vote no will vote yes. It will set the stage for anarchy.

Biafra as a nation will be absolutely nothing compared to Nigeria. While Nigeria was created under fiat, Biafra will be created out of Referendum. This referendum won't be autocratic. The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has stated that the referendum will be according to race.
It means that the referendum will never be entire Biafrans voting yes or no at one setting. It will be the different nations under Biafra voting for themselves. This means that Ndi Igbo will vote for themselves. Ijaw for themselves, and Efik for themselves. And likewise others. If you vote no, so be it.

With this, the principle of choice is maintained. No body will ever claim to be forced into Biafra. You should not be begged nor forced. There will be nothing like minority or majority. That's because you will be recognized as a nation inside Biafra. This means that you are going to be 100% in control of your resources. You will make your local laws and in your language too. There will be a weaker central government. Something in great contrast to what is obtainable in Nigeria.

This is the true example of freedom.

Stop thinking that this struggle is for oil. Don't think that because the Igbo are fully into this struggle and have been sacrificing, then they are looking for what you have. The problem with some people is that the Nigeria establishment has distorted their brains with lots of misinformation, in that they hardly think straight and reasonable again.
For the past 50 years since after the civil war, the Nigeria establishment has not only presented the Igbo as a tiny people, they have presented them as a people with no natural resources, and at the same time a people that is land locked. This is a lie.

 Igbo land is not limited to South East region of Nigeria. In fact, Ndi Igbo transcends South East into the South South states of Delta, Rivers, Akwaibom, Edo, Bayelsa, and even to the Northern State of Benue.

Majority of the Igbo speaking communities carved into these places are Oil producing communities. The Igbo states like Anambra, Abia and Imo are also oil producing States. Ebonyi is home to agriculture and stones. Enugu is center for coal.

The twist is that with these natural resources  in Igbo land of South East and South South, an average Igbo man doesn't care about oil. They believe in what they can invent or produce. Their power is not in what is beneath their feet. Their power is in human resources. So if you think that the Igbo is sacrificing their all for this struggle, because of the oil in your backyard, then I must say that you truly don't understand the Igbo man.

This freedom we seek for is nonnegotiable. We are leaving the zoo. It doesn't matter if other nations in Biafra land decides to vote No.

We are going!

Open Letter To Biafrans Globally

Open Letter To Biafrans Globally

Dear fellow compatriots,

Greetings! I very sincerely congratulate you all for your varied and invaluable contributions and victories so far recorded in our pursuit for an independent nationhood.

However, more yet needed to be done both collectively and individually towards the realization of a conducive and progressive environment for our habitation. It is necessary that we restructure our mindset for the birth of the new nation of Biafra. We henceforth, have to kick-start practising civility in all our activities and as well, inculcate behavioral healthiness as citizens of a civilised nation like what obtains in the United States of America, Spain, Germany, etcetera.
Those salient qualities we must imbibe and live out include:

1) Having the overriding interest of our nation at heart.

2) We must stand up for the rights of our fellow citizens.

3) We must take responsibility of all our actions whatever be the outcome.

4) We must inculcate civilised/right manner of approach towards our fellow citizens.

5) We must strive at all times, to avoid confrontational reactions during supposed friendly conversations.

6) We must do away with the evil and retrogressive mindset of god-fatherism even when the law disfavors us.

7) Good opinions must always be welcomed and appreciated despite the office occupied.

Dear fellow compatriots, the sterling qualities always being exhibited even at odd/difficult times by our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, are enough tutorials that should be inculcated, nurtured and lived out in an organized society. That is what makes life beautiful, enjoyable and rewarding. This type of disposition is what we truly need in the Biafran nation. The Nigerian contraption we are forced to habit totally lacks these qualities and so, Biafrans have so much imbibed these harmful and unfruitful ways of life. The entire environment is polluted with political instability/insanity, perversion of justice, hydra-corruption, terrorism/relentless killings, unemployment, propaganda, hatred, oppression and deception. The Nigerian government has become an institution that grooms imbecility and cowardice. This of course, must not be allowed in the Biafran nation.

We all have to rid ourselves of such retrogressive mindsets as we get set to match into our dear fatherland. We cannot afford to do otherwise. Let us stay blessed and strong brethren!

Nigeria and the Biafra blood

Nigeria and the Biafra blood

Many people within and outside the geographical space called Nigeria have begun to lament  the deteriorating security situation in Nigeria, the ravaging hunger, excruciating poverty, high rate of unemployment, debilitating physical and mental ill-health, moral decadence among  other social indicators that have taken downward trend in the country.

The low and the mighty now seem to be getting up from their slumber, though some who have had their mouths gagged with some political crumbs or religious rituals are yet to reveal their stand.
Reports of banditry, kidnapping, rape and killings of thousands of people in their homes, farms, worship places, schools, hospitals, highways etc, by demons in human forms are expanding like ripples in muddy water every day.

Few people search for the cause of all these problems and they end up querying the security architecture and competence among others.

These may be valid areas to examine. But, the root causes of these problems are far deeper and more complex than the above areas.
Simply put: Nigeria is reaping what it sowed, Nigeria sowed INIQUITY and HORROR over the years; and so shall reap multiples of baskets full of the consequences of iniquity and horror – NIGERIA IS UNDER HEAVY CURSE!! Take it or leave it!

The blood of millions of innocent and defenseless Biafrans massacred from 1945 till date, cries unceasingly to the Lord God Almighty, the Creator of Heaven and Earth for JUSTICE.

More than 2000 (two thousand) innocent Biafran men, women and children were massacred by government sponsored rioters in Jos and Kano in 1945 and 1953, respectively.

More than 2,500,000 innocent Biafrans were massacred in various parts of Northern and Western Nigeria in 1966.

Thousands of the victims who were pregnant had their wombs slit open and their unborn babies smashed to ensure that they did not live to become Emeka Ojukwu.

Biafran men and women, old and young were macheted, gunned down, bayoneted, burnt alive, in their residences, shops, airports, railway stations and trains in various parts of Northern Nigeria.

Some Northern leaders hailed the perpetrators and jeered the victims as they were calling on God with their last breath. The perpetrators and their leaders boldly said they would take the consequences.

From 1967 to 1970 more than 5,700,000 Biafrans were massacred in Biafraland. More than 2,000,000 of these were children who were starved to death.

From 1970 till date hundreds of thousands of innocent Biafrans have been massacred in Northern Nigeria and in Biafraland.
The blood of these millions of innocent Biafrans massacred on the demonic shrine of One Nigeria surge before the Divine Altar of The Almighty God for Justice.

As the Cries of the Blood of Innocent Biafrans vibrate and re-vibrate in the heavenly realm, the curse on Nigeria expands and multiplies. All persons, groups of persons – local and International who were or are involved directly or indirectly in spilling Biafran blood on the demonic shrine of ONE NIGERIA, will inescapably reap the consequences of the abomination.
No amount of: NIGERIA PRAYS lip service by Jack Yakubu Gowon and his like shall remove the curse on Nigeria.

In 1966, Gen. Emeka Ojukwu advised Nigerian leadership that it was “better different components of Nigeria moved slightly apart to survive or we all perish”. Nigeria did not listen. Britain did not listen and did not even care.

The One and Only Solution to all these problems is the restoration of Biafra Sovereignty. Let Biafrans GO!

Arm twisting, intimidation, harassment and persecution of Biafrans will prolong and multiply the problems of Nigeria.

If you doubt it, check what happened to the Egyptians of old (Exodus 6:14-21), God has not changed and will not change!

Niger Delta, A Slave Name We Must Get Rid Of In Order To Be Truly Free

Niger Delta; A Slave Name We Must Get Rid Of In Order To Be Truly Free

Written By Elochukwu Nicholas Ohagi,
For Family Writers Press International.

No one in his or her right senses prides with the name 'Niger Delta' as an identity. Niger Delta as a name, describes a place where the British government, through the help of the Fulani, are stealing natural resources belonging to the indigenous people in Biafra land.
In places they merged and named Niger Delta, you would see Ijaw, Efik, Igbo, Uroboh etc. So when one say, 'I am Niger Deltan', you can't interpret exactly who such a person is or where he comes from. You don't know if he is Igbo, Ijaw or Efik.

Niger Delta is just A BUSINESS NAME bestowed on us by the trickish British government so as to perfectly insert their divide and rule strategy. No one that thinks deep about his real origin will ever describe himself as a Niger Deltan. The name automatically overshadows who you truly are and hides your identity.

Some feel that shouting Niger Delta makes the Igbo people carved into it become different from other Igbo people. That is why you see some misguided Hausa Fulani and Yoruba people always lament that Igbo people should leave Niger Delta alone.

But who is a Niger Deltan?

Is it that Efik man?
The Ijaw man or the Igbo man? What makes the Igbo man from Egbema, Elele, Asaba, Ogwashiukwu, Ndoni etc different from an Igbo man from Nnewi, Urualla and Ngwa? Some would say that they are in the so called 'South South' region, while others are in South East. But again, the Ijaws in South-south are exactly the same with the Ijaws they carved into the Western part of the country. This is exactly how Nigeria have used years of misinformation to distort brains of lots of people and forced them to carry badges of slavery and even brag with it. They made them to fight each other and never to unite as one. This is because in their disunity, those for whom Nigeria was created continue to gain massively.

Britain in their wisdom refused to fight wars to suppress the move for independence in Nigeria. They have really studied the space they called Northern and Southern protectorates and understood that for them to keep ruling indirectly, they need to merge the spaces together. It is never to help feed the North with southern resources as they claimed. It was solely for the interest of Britain.

How can you feed a Northern region that has fertile land for agriculture? Agricultural lands that when harnessed can produce food that can feed the entire Africa. A region with lands filled with lots of natural resources. How can you say you are merging the two distinct regions to feed a people capable of feeding the entire Africa?
The problem with us is that we continue teaching our young ones lies written by minds brainwashedby the whites without asking proper questions. That's why we still teach people how Mongo Park discovered River Niger. A river our forefathers navigated many years before the so called Mongo Park was born.

I have started putting everything I was told into scrutiny. The words of Ahmadu Bello comes to mind here. This descendant of Uthman Dan Fodio confidently said:

“The new nation called Nigeria should be an estate of our grandfather, Othman Dan Fodio. We must ruthlessly prevent a change of power. We must use the minorities in the North as willing tools and the South as a conquered territory and never allow them to rule over us or have control over their future.”

These words from Ahmadu Bello isn't directly from this man. It is the handiwork of Britain. Britain have seen that the only way to keep their hold on their colony and still dictate what happens is to empower the Fulani. So Britain became the friends of the Fulani and makes them think they are favoring them. Till this day, the Fulani have been following the mandate of Bello, without knowing that they are indeed following the plans of Britain, destroying the North while making sure the British government keeps ruling indirectly.

After the war, Britain effectively used the Fulani to divide the East into South South and South East; and further divided them into Niger Deltans and non-Niger Deltans. Tell me how the Fulani who are majorly cattle rearers managed to think out in 1967/70 how to divide the East and make brothers fight against each other, while Britain and the Fulani elites steal them dry. They were simply carrying out the plans of the British government, who feared the intelligence of Biafrans in the East and desperately want to keep them down.
Today, while the Fulani are being used by Britain to keep the entire East down, 87% of poor people according to World Bank survey are in their Northern Region. The North has become the poverty capital of the world. With terrorism destroying the entire region.

Like I said earlier, Niger Delta is never an identity. They are two English words that have no place in our language and culture. It is a tool of slavery and marginalization. It is a name that was used to force people to carry their badge of slavery with pride and honor.

You that still pride yourself as a Niger Deltan, when you rediscover yourself, you will understand how foolish you were, when you help foreigners bury your identity.

Nnamdi Kanu; The Man That Rose To Power Without Political Power

Nnamdi Kanu; The Man That Rose To Power Without Political Power
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu

Some people in politics and those who revere themselves as intellectuals have refused to accept the fact that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is another leader that is much respected like Ikemba Ojukwu was respected in 1967/70.

Every now and then they portray Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as a no body. I once read from one of them saying that Nnamdi Kanu is not an Igbo leader. They might be right. Nnamdi Kanu is not just an Igbo leader. He is a Biafran leader, and Igbo is part of Biafra. So it is wrong to describe him as mere Igbo leader.

Nnamdi Kanu is the only man that can command millions of youths in Igbo land and beyond and they will respond. In fact millions are just waiting for him to say the word and it will be done. Even those abroad are also solidly behind him.

IPOB leader doesn't need monetary inducement like the south East governors before he can gather millions around him. He once said that he will go to Abuja with millions of IPOB members for his Court case, and Nigeria government quickly truncated the Court case, by attacking his family house, killing dozens, resulting to his parents eventual death.

The fear of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is the beginning of wisdom. Just ordinary announcement of the burial of his parents, Nigeria government deployed battalions of soldiers in and around Afaraukwu. One thing we failed to acknowledge is the fact that Nigeria government deployed these soldiers because they are afraid of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. They deployed soldiers not at the standpoint of strength, but fear. Just like the few dirty politicians and their intellectual counterparts will wish Nnamdi Kanu away, the Nigeria government knows how powerful he is. They are no more taking him for granted. They have seen what he is doing to them abroad. With what Kanu has achieved so far, one wonders how ndi intellectual still wish him away.

So many people dancing a shameful dance for the politicians pretend not to know that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu controls more than 90% of the Biafra youths. They don't know that he holds the future in his hand. This young man didn't do this with money or political power. He did it from nothing. Just from telling people the truth and exposing the evil of the government. When he started so many people called him a dreamer. Many laughed at him, but he persisted. Today, you can see how massive the movement has become.

From nothing Mazi Nnamdi Kanu rose to an enviable height. History will remember him as the only man in the entire Eastern region that became a respected Leader without smelling political power.

The only reason some few conscienceless individuals masquerading as intellectuals worship the Governors is because of the peanuts they receive from them. But tomorrow is coming, when they will be judged accordingly.

The governors of South East will work more harder to sell their people, as to please the Fulani.
But IPOB will neutralize them. The people will depend on IPOB for every thing.
