This article will be discussing mediocrity, the role of a mediocre in the struggle for the restoration of Biafra. The term, Mediocre means, Not too good, not too bad; poor. People of this nature are the worst human on earth because they can never get it right. They never get things done but spend most of their time apportioning blames on others who work. A mediocre leads a confused life. In trying to explain this, Ernest Agyemang Yeboah wrote, "Until you press the switch button of the light in your room on, you shall always have light in your room and still live in darkness." That's it! That's exactly the life of a mediocre. "Mediocre minds usually dismiss anything which reaches beyond their understanding." - Francois de La Rochefoucauld. A Mediocre always trades in gossips; condemns people's ideas without generating his or her thoughts and attacks you directly or in indirectly without first finding out the reasons for your unorthodox act. A Mediocre is always prideful and likes to be treated as unique. He is an empty vessel that makes the most significant noise! Hence, he does not have focus in life. Regarding the struggle for Biafra restoration, some of the mediocre who don't understand the mission of Nnamdi Kanu have been bribed by the corrupt Nigerian politicians, and they now function as the agents of destabilisation. Their quest is to fan the embers of discord among the Indigenous People of Biafra to stop Biafra restoration Such individuals are everywhere, even in IPOB. But I trust IPOB, because its foundation is excellent, and it was laid on "Truth" and "Honesty." It will always survive any ugly situations or attacks from the enemies and even from frenemies because it thrives on excellence and does not encourage failure, lies and deceit. Recall that IPOB motto is "Whiter Than White And Whiter Than Snow." This will forever remain the way it is. A Mediocre is the same as an objectionable person. An undesirable person has been aptly described as "One who by his or her demeanour constitutes himself or herself into a nuisance. His or her behaviour in both public and private life is incompatible with social etiquette." A Mediocre is not a good motivator. He is a complete misfit and always brings people's good down in all situations. How will a mediocre be able to elevate people's spirit when he doesn't even understand the language of leadership? How will he be able to control the people when he is oblivious to the fact that sometimes in life, "Diplomacy and Finesse is better than coercion?" He is merely a disaster when it comes to relating with the public. Do not be cowed into accepting defeat from a mediocre. A friend of mine whom I admire so much once begged me to take the hits and blows coming from an average in one particular situation to allow peace to prevail then. But after adequately examining her statement, even though I quite understood where she was coming from, I had just told her "No" right to her face, that I would not pay heed to her advice, not this time around, because I was not that kind of person that would allow mediocrity to run me over. My advice to you out there is to keep pushing and never relent nor give in to the demands of a mediocre. The truth remains that, "Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds." - Albert Einstein Like I have stated above, such individuals are everywhere. Some of them even masquerade as freedom fighters under the umbrella of IPOB, but in actual sense, they are there to discourage and disorganise the activities of the real hardcore, hardworking and gallant men of IPOB. They are wolves in Sheep's Clothing.
People who fall into this category of mediocrity are the ones the Nigerian government is using to suppress and kill the struggle for Biafra restoration. They are the ones you see out there, both on the social media and other gatherings, kicking against the activities of Nnamdi Kanu. They are the agents of Lucifer from the pit of hell. Their sole aim is to bring disaster to the children of ChiukwuOkike nothing more nothing less.
I, Therefore urge IPOB worldwide to be wary of these braggarts, these churlish mannered set of individuals, these band of vandals who are hellbent on stopping the Biafra spirit from what it is set to achieve because they can never contribute any damn good thing to our lives and the struggle. Hence they are like their paymasters (The Hausa/Fulani), very backward and mentally retarded.
