Nigeria is a country built on lies right from her foundation during the amalgamation in 1914. The British colonialists headed by Governor Frederick Lugard was very much aware of the differences amongst the ethnic groups he was about to put together in other to achieve imperialistic economic interest of the colonial master Britain.
The evidence from 1960 independence national anthem, part which read "Though tribe and tongue may differ, in brotherhood we stand." Can any Nigerian show me a proof of this? We have forged ahead to be one indivisible country for more than a century but have the following as the only GOOD OUTCOME: -
1. GREED: The exploitation of Biafra's natural resources by greedy Northern and Western Nigeria rulers and some unscrupulous slave traders/so-called elites/politicians or cowards/backward leaders in Biafra land, with little or no regards for the well-being and adequate compensation for the owners of the land where the resources are extracted from, not only that, the well-being of every other ordinary people that call themselves Nigerians.
2. HATE: This is common in everyday life in Nigeria. so called Northern Nigerians (AREWAS) hate the Biafrans, the SO CALLED WESTERN Yorubas hate the Biafrans, why should the Biafrans be the only side that have shown love for the so-called one Nigeria? IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT THERE ARE NO YORUBAS OR HAUSAS THAT LOVE THE Biafrans. There are still good people out there. I WILL PROVE THAT LATER IN MY CONCLUSION.
3. RELIGION AND CULTURE: The difference in culture and religion is as clear as daylight. There should be tolerance and respect for other ethnic groups religious beliefs, but this is very very far from the truth considering the past and present inconsiderate massacre, wanton destruction and burning of churches of Christian faith regardless of who is inside the buildings during the rage. It is still going on up till today.
4. VALUE SYSTEM AND GOVERNANCE: All the CLANS that make up Biafra land are known to be Republicans from ancestral time. The Arewas are known to be Oligarchs from ancestral time while the Oduduwas are known to be Monarchs from ancestral time. Go do research and find out what this value systems/governance are and that is why we Biafrans talk the way we talk and do things the way we do and people say we are arrogant or disrespectful, we inherited REPUBLICANISM from our ancestors and it is what we call our culture. There is nothing anyone can do about it. America is built on Republican ideology and that is why they do things the way they do. Democracy has republican ideology and Arewas and Oduduwas will never understand what DEMOCRACY means, because it is not their culture.
GREED IS THE DRIVING FORCE behind the slogan of indivisible one Nigeria. It is true because after the Nigeria/Biafra war, we did not learn any lesson from the causes. Nigeria hid the truth from Nigerians, swept the ugly crime to humanity under the rug and wished it went away and at the same time laid ugly destructive foundation and path that it follows up till today. Nigeria felt that she won the war therefore, anything goes, they can do anything without being questioned. The very actors that played a part in that genocidal war are the same actors at the stage now since after the war. They have forgotten that the war cost over 3 million Biafran lives not including that of Nigerian soldiers. They have also forgotten that they won the war with the help of three (3) world powers namely The British, America and Russia who supplied Nigerian government with tons of ammunition and war planes, will not fail to mention the Egyptian pilots who made the bombing runs. They forgot that it took them 3 years to accomplish that task.
These very actors that have ruled Nigeria, are the same ones that have embezzled Nigeria's wealth. They are all billionaires and from where did they get the billions? Biafra oil/Gas resources. YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF TO FOLLOW THE SO-CALLED CORRUPTION TRAIL AND TRACK THE BILLIONS. Name any ex-military Head of State that have ruled Nigeria, check his place of origin and how much billions to his bank account. How much did you notice? WHERE HAVE THEY INVESTED THE MONEY? Oversea banks in Britain, United Arab Emirate (UAE) in recent times and others countries of the world, running the economy of those foreign countries while unemployment and economic degradation is the order of the day here at home the worst being Biafra land. The same countries with the exception of Russia are still active players in what happens in Nigeria today. We are not independent from them. They still pitch us against ourselves and we kill ourselves daily with little regard to human lives and rigged elections and results.
Hate and venomous utterances are very common in our everyday life. This is the guiding principle as to how we see one tribe against the other hence, we could see nothing good in another tribe. Even as I am writing this, I do not envision that going away. It is deeply rooted and cannot be uprooted. (Out of the abundant of the heart, the mouth speaketh). Check back to see the feedback.
Why should Nigeria make laws that she does not follow when it applies to a particular region? I AM USING REGION FOR REFERENCE AND TRUTH because the North and the West have been conducting themselves in such a manner with their words and actions towards the East. If you go back to the question of greed, you can now see why so many states were created. Go through pre- 2015 election campaigns and the ugly incidents that took place before that election and what would have been if Jonathan had won that election. It is an act of God and thank God that he did not win or even contest the outcome of the election.
