The Raging Economic War Against Biafra: Enough Reason For Biafran Industrialists To Join IPOB

It has now very clearly gone beyond speculations and skepticisms that the Nigerian government has openly declared a very subtle and systematic war against Biafran industrialists in Nigeria. Captains of industries of Biafran extraction should jointly take hold of the opportunity the prevailing economic persecutions from the government of Nigeria has provided and unequivocally declare their support for the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide in the quest for Biafra restoration. Obviously, Biafran industrialists can no more successfully carry out their businesses in Nigeria as there exists presently, a well organized sinister agenda skewed against their progress. And here now comes the urgency for them to have a wholesome rethink about their involvement in a regressive one- Nigeria and align forces with the IPOB family globally, for the freedom and restoration of Biafraland wherein lie their security, progress and future. This they should immediately do to strongly salvage the industries, companies and other related small scale businesses whether domiciled in Biafraland or in the diaspora, from the liquidation intent of the Nigerian government and agents, following a well articulated plan of action, wrapped in various bizarre policies of political vendetta.
The season has dawned for Biafran industrialists and captains of industries such as:
(1) Chief Dr. Innocent Chukwuma (Chief Executive Officer), Innoson Group of Companies,
(2) Chief Dr. Chika Okafor (Chief Executive Officer), Chikason Group of Companies,
(3) Dr. Ifeanyi Patrick Ubah (Chief Executive Officer), Capitol Oil and Gas Limited,
(4) Chief Cletus Ibeto (Chief Executive Officer), Ibeto Group of Companies,
(5) Chief Sir Emeka Offor amongst many others, to unite and map out modalities for survival, having the following revolutionary questions in focus, viz:
* For how long do we have to remain concerned and watch the very essence of the survival of our industries go down the drain through the adverse policies of the Nigerian government?
* What further catalyst do we need to declare our alignment with the IPOB leadership to fast track the restoration drive for the sovereignty of the nation of Biafra?
It is expedient therefore, for these chain of successful Biafran industrialists and industrial captains to note that inasmuch as the Biafra restoration struggle needs the unflinching support of all Biafrans classes notwithstanding, one thing is indisputably very certain. BIAFRA must be restored, no matter who is involved or not. They should know too that they stand to gain enormously settling down in a restored Biafra, away from the unrelenting economic terrorism targeted against them and their businesses by the Nigerian government. It should be clearly stated here that a Biafran, to the Nigerian government and it's agents, is a potential member of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), with the likes of Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, Governor Dave Umahi, Governor Nyesom Wike, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, His Royal Highness Professor Chike Edoziem (Asagba of Asaba) and Professor (Justice) Chile Eboe Osuji (New President of International Criminal Court).
The earlier the understanding of this brazen truth and the intrigues behind the ongoing shutdown of Biafran-owned industries, by these seemingly myopic Biafran industrialists, the better. This raging hurricane is gradually encroaching on their domain one after the other. Continuously playing the ostrich in the face of glaring realities and danger is to say the least, most unfortunate. Joining the IPOB family now is the only panacea needed before it gets belated.
Sometimes ago, the Ibeto Ceement, Capitol Oil & Gas and recently, Innoson Motors Nigeria Limited, were respectively prowled on by economic predators while all other industrialists remained negligent because they felt safe and secured. Presently, the terroristic oppression has visited Emzor Pharmaceutical Company and many other Biafran industrialists have remained unconcerned. Who can predict whose turn it is next in their card of vendetta? Perhaps, Chikason Group of Companies or Coscharis. The industrialists should know that it is better to die a hero fighting for freedom rather than be waiting for the day of your company's liquidation or the Chief Executive Officer disgracefully arrested/incarcerated under the weight of economic persecution. It is exceptionally honorable to suffer persecution as a Biafran, suspectedly sympathetic to the struggle for the Biafra restoration.
If after the whole treachery and sabotage most of you got involved with, against the freedom and restoration efforts, the Nigerian government still descends on you on the basis of mere suspicion that you are sympathetic to the Biafra struggle, you are then adjudged the most miserable of all men.
The industrialists should understand that the Nigerian government hate their progress and survival passionately. It is therefore required of them to reasonably pitch their tents with the families of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) closely located, for it is in the total restoration of the nation of Biafra that they and their businesses will find solace. They have to retrace their steps and purposefully do the needful. Our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu had repeatedly and pointedly stated to the hearing of all that: "Any Biafran who serves Nigeria against Biafra interests, must surely come back home in shame".
One popular Igbo adage says that: "if an elderly woman falls two to three times on the way, she has to definitely count if what she is carrying on her head is really intact".
Let the wise read with understanding!
