There is a school of thought which says that wherever and whenever the holy name "Biafra" is been mentioned, evil doers and merchants of misery begins to run helter skelter. This school of thought was recently rendered credence following the scenario that was reported to have recently played out in the Senate of the National Assembly, when Senators from the Northern extraction upon mentioning the name Biafra on the floor of the Senate got mysteriously enraged with unimaginable outcry just because "Biafra" was mentioned by one of their colleagues from the East.
To be sincere, this appears to be the first time in history that politicians from Biafra or Eastern extraction in the National Assembly will stand boldly and firmly on ground to remind Nigeria about Biafra. There is a saying which states that "a slap on the face is no longer a joke".
According to the news which recently went viral on media that a Senator from the North of Nigeria suggested that Islamic State be given to Boko Haram to put an end to their rampage and killings and with Senator Ike Ekweremadu's reply that his people should also be given Biafra as well, stating that Biafra is older than Nigeria. According to the report, this resulted to a fracas in the House following its provocation that saw Senators from the Northern extraction throwing bottled water at him for mentioning Biafra. It was further gathered that this move infuriated Senator Enyinna Abaribe who promptly defended his brother against the Senators fighting him.

Though the reactions of the Senators from both sides was accidental, I must applaud the Eastern Senators for at least standing for the truth and defending their right at the spot.
Delighted with this incidence, I would wish that these distinguished Senators of the National Assembly and others from the Eastern origin, comes back to their real human senses and begin to perceive the reality the way it is. There is nothing to fight over about the Senators but they should know that there are greater tasks required from them to deliver if really they are representing the people.
It is clear to all that Nigeria is a strong member of the Organization of Islamic States which was registered and funded long time before now. This have been clarified and confirmed too when President Muhammadu Buhari made several Islamic State submits through his travels to substantiate the idea to Islamize the whole of Nigeria, followed by his introduction of a new curriculum which is Islamic study to be undertaken by schools across the length and breadth of Nigeria and the recognition of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad Abdullahi as the only great Prophet of God to be taught in all primary and secondary schools in the country.
All plans have been perfected to ensure that Islam is the only religious option any individual can take in Nigeria. Therefore, it is not arguable that our way of life with those from the North is totally different and contradictory to each other. Islam is their religion and their rights to choose so does Biafrans and other entities have the inalienable right to choose their own religion. And so it is a big shame and foolhardy too if these Northern politicians can stand for Boko Haram terrorists for achieving their dangerous aims whereas those from Biafra would be aiding and abetting all evil plots against their own people who have been agitating peacefully for the freedom of their children and generations yet unborn. The freedom from slavery which Director Nnamdi Kanu and the Indigenous People of Biafra worldwide are pursuing for their sake.
Nigeria is against Biafra because the emergence of a Biafran State is the failure of their planned agenda to Islamize the whole people in the country and they will never fail to oppress and subdue whoever is against that agenda. They will neither stop nor back out from their decision until they see their agenda completely achieved.
Now is the right time for these Senators and members of the House of Representatives in the hallowed chambers to raise a motion in the floor, mounting a serious and genuine debate for the freedom of Biafra by ensuring that a credible referendum is given to Biafrans. A stitch in time they say, saves nine.
