Nnamdi Kanu: "A white man asked me years ago when I was writing my thesis in England, why must you decide to do a 'CRITIC ON DEPENDENCY THEORY'?

I said to him because I am descended from this part of BIAFRA where men consider it an honour to be dead than to be slaves to fellow men. It's a unique privilege. I consider myself lucky to be born an Igbo man and a Biafran, it is the best part that any man can come from in Africa. I assure you. But some of us don't know what it means.

We have jettisoned our pride. We have mortgaged our sense of self-worth. We are now servants to those who between 1940 and 1960 were not considered good enough to be our Gate men. Those days when the Igbo Union used to hold sway in the Zoo called Nigeria, it represented the finest thing about the Igbo person and not the present Ohanaeze. I mean Igbo Union. The ones that built Aba National High School.
