For years now, I have critically been studying the attitude of the government and good people of Britain and all I have discovered is that this nation is one of the most civilised societies in the world today. In fact, in one of the Radio Biafra broadcasts made in the month of January 2019, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, made it quite clear based on his personal discoveries that just like Biafra in Africa, England is the most civilised nation on the planet earth. His employed statistical module I cannot definitely ascertain but I know that Britain remains one of the nations that showcases modern civilization. Ample time has been invested in taking a study on this nation, ranging from the citizens' high value, placed on human rights protection, freedom of speech/expression, respect for the rule of law and equality in every sphere of existence. Allowing Radio Biafra to carry on uninhibited broadcast and transmission from London despite negative diplomatic pressures from Nigeria, can explicitly attest to her being a typical example arising from detailed assessment.
However, it remains baffling why the same Britain and her government are yet very cynical about the plight of Africans. Why does Britain take pleasure in profiteering from the uncivilized condition of African nations instead of using her civilization to assist the African continent to grow and develop? Why is Britain so negligent about the lack of civilization in this part of the world? Why is the nation concealing human rights abuses, senseless killings and all forms of corruption being perpetrated by various African governments that are yet colonially answerable to London? The fact remains that Britain abhors inhuman treatment, killing and corruption against her citizens within and outside her territories, but why then her support for injustice and other forms of dehumanization ongoing in Nigeria which she created? The protection of her inordinate economic interests remains the cause of this evil and wickedness. It is despicable and disgusting for a civilized society like Britain to turn a blind eye to impunity she perpetrated in the Nigerian federation where her citizens play the lords.
It is unimaginable to even state that a supposed civilised nation like Britain prefers that the entire African population get drowned in the Atlantic Ocean instead of her government to loosing any of her economic interests in Nigeria. A perfect example in the pack regarding the British deceitful stance hinges on the Biafra restoration struggle which the colonialists have heightened action to frustrate with the delusional unity mantra of Nigeria. Obviously, it is quiet certain that the dissolution of Nigeria which will culminate in the emergence of Arewa, Oduduwa and Biafra as individual sovereign nations in the West African sub-region, will totally bring an end to the relentless senseless killings in Nigeria. But because this will tamper with it's economic interests, the British government will not want to allow freedom, equity, peace, justice and development to prevail in this part of Africa. Britain prefers the persistent senseless killings of the innocent by the Islamic terrorists which dot virtually every part of Nigeria. This is why the civilization of Britain vis-a-vis her cynicism on the plight of Africans, remain a mystery and an irreconcilable paradox before the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) globally, ably led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. A civilized society like Britain should be able to showcase good example of what civilization really means but it has otherwise chosen to go contrary. Her approach to issues in Africa has been that of indifference and callousness. The body language of the British government has bred innumerable measures of impunity within the West African sub-region since the colonization of Nigeria.
Here comes the ample time needed for Britain to really have a rethink over the satanic support her government officials have shamelessly been giving to their puppeted African public office holders. This wave of soulless enterprise cannot be allowed to continue.
