During the lifetime of Jesus on this earth, many of his followers vowed never to leave nor forsake him. One of his staunch followers named Peter not only vowed to always be with him but also demonstrated an initial zeal and defence for his master. He fought for his master as soon as he(Jesus) was arrested. He cut off the ear of Marcus, one of those that arrested Jesus.
But Jesus (Yahshua) had already prophesied that all would desert him, including Peter whom he said would deny him three times. In trying to show his total belief, loyalty, commitment, love and support for his master, Peter argued that he would never leave nor forsake him.
In a similar event, Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, during his many broadcasts on Radio-Biafra London programme had prophesied that so many people would desert, deny and forsake him and even abandon the Biafra struggle.
Today, many people have fulfilled Nnamdi Kanu's prophecy and some are out to fulfil more prophecies.
As a Biafran and as an IPOB member, would you follow the path of renouncement, unfaithfulness or disloyalty to what and whom you have believed on? Would you abandon the course of the restoration of Biafra you have always pursued? Abandon or deny Nnamdi Kanu whom you have given your support for?
You are the one to decide and face the consequences of your decisions.
Also, Yahshua prophesied that Judas Iscariot would betray him.
Judas, full of greed and lust for money and wealth, allowed himself to be used to betray his master; and of course, he ended up disastrously.
In a similar event, Nnamdi Kanu prophesied about people betraying him and the course of restoration of Biafra.
Some, out of selfishness and greed, have towed the path of Gehazi ( the servant of Elisha in the Holy Book) and accordingly they are receiving their comeuppance
They have fulfilled this prediction and have ended in disaster while others are queuing up.
Some have become Sanballat and Tobias who opposed Nehemiah in the rebuilding project of the walls of the holy temple of God in Israel. And as the Lord opposed the saboteurs in the time of Nehemiah, so is He opposing anyone against Biafra.
But my question to you now is:
Would you follow this path of betrayal which would eventually land you to misery and destruction? Or would you rather follow the honourable path of a staunch follower, an unwavering supporter of God's project and a dogged freedom fighter which not only lands you to the Promised land of Biafra but also earns you a name in Biafra land?
The choice is yours to make!
To Civilised People Of The World
The world is filled with people, associations and organizations who claim to be who and what they are not.
Sometimes it's easier said than done. Some people are good in claiming civility but actions should always speak louder than voice.
Some countries and organizations of the world claim to be campaigners and defenders of people's rights and freedoms but a few chose to write their names with gold by matching their verbal or written declarations with actions.
I want countries, organizations, individuals and personalities to know that supporting people to gain their freedom is a proof that they indeed are lovers of freedom. And one of the real things that make civilised freedom-loving people feel fulfilled is when they see people they are supporting and advocating for gain their freedom.
When people's lives are impacted positively by you, you can not but feel fulfilled because you have thrived on the path to your destiny.
So my question to you lovers and supporters of freedom is:
Would you keep quiet now you have seen an opportunity to live up to your destiny?
Would you speak out and take actions against the injustice perpetrated against Nnamdi Kanu and the people of Biafra? Would you advocate for the freedom of the people of Biafra by insisting that United Nations enforce her resolutions on Indigenous People's rights to self-determination which the Nigerian government under Muhamadu Buhari is trampling underfoot?
Seeing that the president of Nigeria, Muhamadu Buhari, is holding Nnamdi Kanu against competent courts' orders, don't you think that you are supporting injustice and disobedience to court's order if you should keep quiet or shy away?
Don't you think that speaking out and taking corresponding steps, measures and actions would keep you from sharing in Buhari's crimes?
To People Who Feel They Are Not Renowned
If you feel that your voice can not be heard because you are not prominent, don't you think you can use this opportunity to make your voice heard?
Are you asking how?
You can join this IPOB RALLY on 23rd September, 2016 and speak out to your government and the world to call Buhari to order.
Also participating in IPOB RALLY would make you feel great and fulfilled because you are making yourself more
relevant in the community, state, nation and the world at large.
So I urge you to make no mistake of belittling yourself or the effect of your support for freedom as it leaves you with the reward of greatness.
Greatness is a measure of how one was (is) able to fulfil the purpose or course he loves or believes and how far he has worked to achieve the good he likes and the vision he backs.
To Those In Biafra Land
23rd September, 2016 has been declared as a work-free day for all Biafrans, this is the time for you to show love for your fatherland.
It is a time when you prove your love and support for Nnamdi Kanu.
I know some of you are not yet IPOB members but within you, you love and support Nnamdi Kanu, Biafra and IPOB members. It is time to show your love, loyalty and solidarity, by staying indoors; closing your shops and offices, markets and businesses. Everything and everyone should be on a stand still.
When you tell the story about Biafra's restoration to your children, you will be glad to also tell them you played your own part; and then they will be proud of you.
