Elder Statesman IPOB
Some People in Biafra restoration struggle has turned to be the man in Aso Rock who blames the past govt. for any single misfortune in his government;-
I hope he must blame the past govt. for Croatia defeating Nigeria. All they can say any time they see me as the Elder Statesman of Ipob is: Oh Ipob did not do this, Ipob did not do that. Kanu could have done this, Kanu could have done
that, that is why Biafra has not come. If you People had done
this or that Biafra could have been restored.
This type of People will not see the great effort of Ipob in bringing Biafra to the knowledge of every conscious mind in the whole World within a space of 5Years. They will not appreciate the much Ipob has done but very busy to criticise and find fault on what Ipob did and what they did not do. In my travels around Europe I found out that many Nations that followed the Nigeria genocide against Biafra 1967 to 70 believe that are no more Biafran People in existence, all they feel was that every Biafran citizen died in that War and many of them will always show a sign of surprise when you tell them that you are a Biafran before the coming of Ipob. But today Ipob has made the entire World to know that Biafrans are still alive and that it is time to get out of that bondage of Slavery which British put us in. After recounting what Ipob and Nnamdi Kanu could have done and what they did not do, my response to such ignorant fellow is:
"My Friend those things that Ipob and Nnamdi Kanu did not do that could have restore Biafra within One month do them let Biafra come and
we shall celebrate you. Biafra in not about Ipob or Nnamdi Kanu, Biafra is for all of us and especially to free our generation to come from this bondage we are in today" Ipob or their leadership is not an embodiment of wisdom on the Biafra restoration agenda. You may know what we did not know, you may have a link which Ipob did not have, you may have the opportunity to go more areas than Ipob is going, you must stop looking at Ipob, utilise those opportunities you have and give us Biafra.
They have formed a Coalition, we are waiting for their blue print on how they will get us Biafra. Nnamdi Kanu and Ipob were able to convince the Biafrans and won their Heart with open truth, Biafrans are convinced that Nnamdi Kanu has proved to them that he is the type of leader they has been looking for since after Odumegwu Ojukwu with all sincerity and truth. May they come up with a more proven sincerity and truth that is able to supersede that of Nnamdi Kanu and Ipob believe you me they will win Biafrans. Let them beat Nnamdi Kanu's record of truthfulness and doggedness in the Biafra restoration agenda and see if Biafrans will not follow them and sing praises for them.
All we need in Biafraland are Sincere and truthful leaders that their White in the Night will remain white in the day, their Black in the day will at Night remain Black, those who will count others before themselves not these present rogues that count themselves and their families first before others like Mbekwu Nwaniga.
