BIAFRA: OPEN LETTER TO CHURCHILL OKONKWO

OPEN LETTER TO CHURCHILL OKONKWO

Churchill Okonkwo


Rejoinder

By Kalu Nwokoro Idika
For Family Writers Press

Dear Mr Churchill Okonkwo,

How are you doing today? I hope you are kicking strong in the track of human. I decided to convey my response to your recent article you tagged me on Facebook which is titled "Biafra, like Infinity is Elusive, Yet Enigmatic And Eternal which was published on 6th of July 2017 in one of the most notorious and dishonest media platform called Sahara Reporters. I decided to respond to you via this platform in other to strike a proper balance and also avoid further unnecessary media fisticuffs.


In your usual repugnant and manipulative posture, you embarked on what I call an exercise in staggering futility. It smacks of common sense when in your shallow and boyish narrative you tried to throttle down the Biafra question by drawing an illogical mathematical analogy just to justify an argument that lacks strong empirical indices. Invariably, only a man that lacks the practical understanding on the workings of democracy will be gallivanting in the usual "make believe" of Biafra being an "elusive dream". To be candid, there was a total disconnection in the insensitive correlation you were trying to draw in your course of analysis.


Moreover, in your narrow sense, if truly Biafra question is as elusive as mathematical infinity, what stops you as a media hireling from advising and campaigning for referendum in other to simply test the popularity of Biafra "elusiveness"? If I may ask, if Biafra is elusive, why are millions of Biafrans keep surging in every nook and cranny of Biafra land calling for her restoration? If it is elusive as mathematical infinity, why is the Nigerian security forces arresting, torturing, incarcerating, maiming and butchering non violent Biafra activists?


Common sense should have taught you that, something that is elusive cannot draw such a huge public outcry. Am still wondering how Biafra question can be liken to mathematical infinity when several countries of the world recognises her political efficacy and have also joined forces with her for the sake of restoring her sovereignty? Biafra is also elusive as the mathematical infinity but its vigorous call within the political space of Nigeria has emasculated and laid bare to the public the fraudulent flaws that characterises the British business centre called Nigeria. it is elusive yet it gave rise to gross fertilization of dishonest and inconsequential media hireling like Churchill Okonkwo who at the mention of the name Biafra shivers like a wimp and begin to churn out all forms of gullible abracadabra in other to deceive men and women of weak disposition.


Notwithstanding, it is sheer display of crass ignorance and what i call "busy body" for a man that claims to be well informed to be exacting his energy talking about an elusive dream. Stop gossiping and exact your energy more in discussing issues "like the missing president" and other fundamental flaws inherent in this geographical contraption called Nigeria. Stop trying to make mountain out of nothing.


Yes, I strongly agree with you that Biafra is a "spirit" but don't lose sight of the simple arithmetic that spirits do not exist in vacuum rather it manifest its trueness and potency through human beings. Biafra is a spirit that abhors injustice, lies and subjugation. The common narrative of Biafra being seen as a spirit shouldn't be catapulted to the cheap interpretation of being cool headed in the midst of glaring economic and political suffocation. It is a spirit in the sense that it wakes and makes individuals to be bold, fearless and strong in questioning any perceived anomaly. It will continue to be counter productive when dishonest columnist like you in their little mind tries to water down the Biafra "spirit" within the context of dubious and unrealistic "one Nigeria". Sincerely speaking, one Nigeria is nothing but a mirage and a sham.


We Biafrans have gotten to the point of no return-"Rubicon". Perhaps, we are stubbornly immune to parochial media jabs from the likes of Churchill Okonkwo. We deem them very inconsequential in the scheme of things. We still encourage Mr Churchill to draw a leaf from other decent columnists, who against all odds have been able to pen down the bitter truth in relation to the present reality in Nigeria even without minding whose ox is gored.


Conclusively, Churchill Okonkwo must embrace the final reality that Biafra is here. For avoidance of doubt, we still maintain our collective stance which is, if Nigeria government fails to give us referendum, we will boycott every election in Biafraland and that is final. There is no alternative to that and it is either you are IN or OUT, there is no MIDDLE ground.

  1. SOME TIMES IT IS GOOD TO REPLY SOME OF THE IGBO-NIGERIA EDUCATED FOOLS IS THIS WAY. ONE THING I HAVE OBSERVED IN THIS STRUGGLE IS THAT THIS PEOPLE ANSWERING TO IGBO NAMES ARE NOT GENUINELY IGBO BY BOTH PARENTS. THEY ARE MIXED AND OFTEN IN THE HABIT OF BEING USED BY THE ENEMY TO COUNTER GOOD GESTURE. MY ADVICE TO GOVERNMENT OF BIAFRA WHEN FINALLY INSTITUTED, IS THAT A LAW OF EXTERMINATION OF ANY BIAFRAN SUSPECTED TO ALLIED WITH FOREIGNER TO PERPETRATE EVIL AGAINST BIAFRA. I FORESEE MANY IGBO TO BE SABOTEUR IN THE FUTURE TO BE ANTI GOVERNMENT WHICH OTHER FOREIGN INVADER COULD BE USED TO DESTROY BIAFRA NATION JUST AS SUCH PEOPLE IN LIBYA WERE USED TO FIGHT AGAINST GADAFI POLITICALLY AND TODAY LIBYA IS NO LONGER THE WAY IT WAS
