WAR VUVUZELAS: STOP THE RANT AND COME ON BOARD

WAR VUVUZELAS: STOP THE RANT AND COME ON BOARD

There has been a plethora of childish rants from different mischievous individuals who in the recent past have been bashing and arrogantly asking IPOB to embrace the use of arms in the restoration of the kingdom of light called Biafra. They chant war songs from their various comfort rendezvous without understanding the pros and cons of warfare.

I don't blame some of these war vuvuzalas because majority of them have never in their life time undergone any academic tutoring on STRATEGIC STUDIES. Wars are not fought and won by mere rants. I will not in anyway chide or disparage these set of persons for holding this school of thought. After all, this is a democratic world and people must have the right to hold and express any personal perception about a public issue. It will be sheer misplacement of priority and casting down of my self-esteem if I should join these scumbags in exchanging tantrums over their impotent line of argument.

For the sake of posterity, I am not against the use of peaceful means to restore Biafra neither are my against the use of arms. My Candid opinion is, any of these means that proves to be more result oriented, I will not hesitate to lend my support to it. Remember, in decision making, one must meticulously weigh if the direct advantages of a decision will be outweighed by its calamitous consequences. In organisational setting, before decisions are made in any matter, there must be stakeholders consultation. Extensive parleys are carried out with the primary goal of capturing the opinion of its members and closing up any lacuna that will give room for grudges. This is done so that when decisions are finally made, it will represent the collective signature of the organisation. And not the decision of few omnipotent power brokers.

There have been too much unnecessary side kicks from some infinitesimal ants that feels in their deluded minds they are mighty elephants. I don't believe in using fire brigade approach in solving a mathematical problem that simply requires logic and sequence in addressing. The constant pouring of unwarranted aspersions against IPOB for not resorting to the use of arms in her drive to restore Biafra is such a cowardly act. It is nothing but a cataclysmic misdirection of precious intellectual energy.

IPOB has a template and we are staunchly maintaining the ground that all democratic options that is open to us in addressing the Biafra question will be exhausted and if there is no in-road, then we are left with nothing than to go it by the barrel of gun and damn the consequences. IPOB is not afraid of war. The world will bear us a witness that there was a time we opted for dialogue just to bring a lasting solution to this brouhaha but the opportunity was thrown overboard. It will be a big show down that will throw the final spanner in the unworkable relationship between Biafra and Nigeria.

Stop the rant and come on board. IPOB is not stopping other agitators that feels they have the cardinal military prowess to restore Biafra. IPOB has been able to set a huge precedence for other actors to rest on and balloon their agenda which the end product shouldn't be far from immediate restoration of Biafra.

These little ants that feels they are mighty elephants should stop dribbling themselves in the name of talking IPOB into arms struggle. We are gradually nearing to that point but have not gotten there yet. We must count one before counting two. Anybody that is feeling too impatient about our modus operandi can fire a warning shot from other fronts while IPOB carefully carries out her military build up with the central objective of striking at the appropriate time.

However, I am of the opinion that, if you have what it takes to restore Biafra, the playing ground is open for the person. Leave IPOB alone and come on board. Show us your political craftsmanship. Its genuineness and commitment will invariably determine if Biafrans will board the ship or not. Too much have been said by these war vuvuzalas. Now that IPOB body language doesn't approve war at the present moment, these blabbing war maniacs can take the bull by the horn and do the needful! There is need to eschew backyard rants and pull more of actions.
