TO IKEDIFE: OLD AGE IS WISDOM NOT WARFARE

TO IKEDIFE: OLD AGE IS WISDOM NOT WARFARE

By Ifeanyi Chijioke

For Family Writers

Sir, by the time you are done reading this my article, you will come to terms that i honoured you. Yes I might be blunt and bitter,but never a time has truth been sweet. I was just disturbed to write this to ease my mind, truth always has a way of forcing itself out. I have tried to get over your comments but if I do not help you my conscience will never be free. I am a youth and you would be bittered that a child is teaching you righteousness. You must come to agreement that with Google, courtesy of computer age, I can know what you know even more than you do. In other words, if I studied biology, I will still teach you about your reproductive system. I know most people might have written to you, but here I want to lecture you truth, I studied truth at University of Radio Biafra, my lecturer Nnamdi Kanu will convince you I am a quality. I don't want to believe that the instability in the land benefits only the "titled" elders and when stability is sought for, such elders fight because they will lose. If that is the situation, then it is a very big shame that you live at the detriment of millions of innocent Biafrans.

Firstly, you acted like Nigerians that carry certificate' up and down without knowledge of common English, certified under poor educational system,from one month strike to seven months and suddenly one gets certified. IPOB is a people and a people cannot be hijacked. IPOB is not an organization or a group,if the people of Biafra choose a leader, who are you to fight our leader chosen by us? Nobody can hijack great Biafra, Biafra can only choose a leader and we have chosen Nnamdi Kanu. Old age is not warfare, no need fighting the people of Biafra, old age is wisdom,you only need to give elderly advice from a supportive perspective. Any attack on Nnamdi Kanu, verbal or physical is an attack against the people of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu doesn't own himself again and neither his family, he belongs to present and future Biafra. It is important for you to shape your tongue but before shaping it, here are the reasons you have to shape your tongue into wisdom and not warfare.

Freedom fighting is not a business of the elders. Freedom fighting doesn't need a conservative approach because freedom is not given but taken. An old bone cannot take the crucial risk, apply the strength and fierceness in freedom fighting but you can apply your wisdom when asked. It is funny, deceitful or rather shameful that a man of your caliber still goes from one court to another in Nigeria looking for Biafra, have you actually taken your time to ask yourself this " can Imo state high court give you Biafra?" if you are not purposely deceiving people then you are deceiving yourself. Freedom is like the kingdom of God that suffereth violence and only the violent taketh it by force. Force is not essentially war, force is all these lawful and peaceful steps Nnamdi Kanu has taken up till today. Nnamdi Kanu being wise knew what he was doing, just as Buhari was deceived, you were also deceived as you thought the violence or war is about gun and bomb, what happened to the intellectual war? The war is over and Biafra has intellectually won the war.


Secondly, there is this adage that says in Igbo speaking part of Biafra " Okwa Nwata choba nkeya oburu ajo-nwa" in our culture, a father gets to a certain age and leaves everything for the son to handle. One of such things that needed the attention of your son is Biafra. You tried in 1967 and failed, allow us to get it right now, but if you feed from Biafra or have ulterior motive to have adamantly sustained your hanky-panky approach, as an elder,you are aware millions died and still dying for Biafra, Biafra is a spirit and the spirit might strike you down.  Indigenous people of Biafra are not a group or neither can it be owned by anybody let alone to be hijacked. When Nnamdi Kanu should be needing your advisory role and support, you chose to ranting from a corner, telling us how you own or IPOB was hijacked. Sir, this moment you are creating is inconsequential, the Indigenous People Of Biafra have chosen a leader, all that is needed from you is to support our leader and give wise counsel as your bones can't get Biafra again.

Finally, I am very much perturbed that you are insincere to yourself despite your age. Nnamdi Kanu having risked everything, internationalized Biafra,popularized Biafra and virtually restored Biafra and all you could do is rant inconsequentially. I dare to ask again “is restoration of Biafra your priority or who leads the charge?" If the little thing you will gain is greater than Biafra restoration, I make bold to tell you that if you stand in the way of Biafra, hardcore Biafrans may carry out mob action against you. If Biafra restoration is what you want, join the Indigenous People Of Biafra and implement it but if what you want is what you will gain,  stay there as one man "opposition" because everybody is IPOB, you are either active or passive or oppositional to the Indigenous people of Biafra and in regular term can be called a " Saboteur".
