Biafra: Afra Descendants Movement (ADM) Declares Support for Biafra...Says "When our Ancestors met the White Man, They told them we are Biafrans And That is what we are."


                   
Sunday 30 October, 2016

AKWA IBOM---It was a great show of camaraderie in Ikot Abasi of Akwa Ibom state of Biafraland on saturday, 29th October 2016, as all the ethnic groups that encompasses the popularly called "South-South" area of the old Eastern region gathered together in warm embrace of each other, while publicly declaring their unwavering support towards the Biafra Restoration project championed by Nnamdi Kanu.

IPOB was astonished to behold the large turnout of her cousins from these various ethnic group who appeared under the aegis of the " AFRA DESCENDANTS MOVEMENT."

In an address titled " for the survival of our people, we need a new beginning“ read out by the group's leader, Apostle Kalada M. Jene and jointly signed by the representatives of each ethnic group that make up the "south-south" region, they retrospectively bemoaned the negative effect of the divide and rule antics orchestrated by the British/Nigeria for the continued subjugation and annihilation of Biafrans.

The thick layer of the divide and conquer strategy, used by the British, galvanized negative relations and undermined every effort made to unite all Biafrans, but through the mental sanitization efforts of Nnamdi Kanu in unearthing every ingredients upon which Nigeria was concocted, Biafrans are today more united than ever the statement read.

Apostle Kalada futher went on to express total dissapointment in the retching union called Nigeria, describing it as a British establishment that has been nothing but detrimental to the people of the old Eastern region, otherwise known as Biafrans. He further stated that in the struggle for the sovereign nation of Biafra, it is critical to include the already known driving force of control over the oil territories by Britain/Nigeria and the policies that marginalized, and will continue to marginalize Biafrans in Nigeria.

Thereafter, he acknowledged the good works of Nnamdi Kanu who is currently being extra-judicially held at the command of the dictator in chief of the Islamic republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari.

The atmosphere transformed into a reconciliatory session, with exhibition of deep regret, as everyone present began to recall the brotherly love that existed between the Igbos and her cousins (south-south) prior to the divide-and-conquer strategy instituted by the Hausa-Fulani and their British lords, courtesy the advent of Frederick Lugard and entourage.

"We have come to realise that we are a people of similar geographical space, socio-political system and cultural inclinations, separated due to slave trade and coerced Almagamation of 1914. The untold conspiracy against our people have been unshrouded, we seek forgiveness from each other and want the past put behind us.
Now we have been refined with a new shared vision, forged in binding fraternal love for one another. "

"Let us dream new and greater dreams, beginning with our identity as a people of same ancestry, who we are and what we are must never be forgotten. We are brothers, we are also friends. God made us brothers from birth, and as long as we came into this world with same skin tone, sharing same cultural values, we are Biafrans. When our ancestors first met the white man, they told them we are Biafrans and that is what we are" Apostle Kalada said.

Delving further into history, they stated that “Biafra is about a people, among whom rose many empires that have risen and fallen. In Biafra, we have kingdoms and People like the Kalabari, Nembe, Sagbama, Ngwa, Ndoki, Ogoni, Owerri, Ikwerre, all living by themselves and setting their own goals and aspirations un-molested, long before the coming of the white man. "Why did it change to our detriment?  It will be nice to have a nation bearing our ancestral name."

"We STAND FOR NEGOTIATED BIAFRA. This new nation shall be the pride of the black race which requires everybody's support." They further condemned again the incarceration of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, while unanimously demanding his release as ordered by competent court of jurisdiction. “We want to say to the government of Nigeria to release Nnamdi Kanu unconditionally. Nnamdi kanu is president Muhammadu Buhari’s moral burden…it is not right for those who have benefitted from coup, an act of treasonable felony to incarcerate Nnamdi kanu for daring to say that he wants a separate existence from Nigerian state that is being controlled by patriotic charlatans. President Buhari may have come too late for Nigeria's rescue”.

Recalling the deepness of Nigeria's socio-political rape on Biafrans, Apostle Kalada futher stated "The wealth beneath and lying in the belly of the Sub-region have been used to feed other people, including the promotion and sustenance of the high standard of living of western countries, while rendering our children jobless and qualitatively uneducated. We must have a guaranteed future for our generations to come by insisting on a new beginning of a separate state of existence for us the Biafran people, we must kick start the renaissance. "

Speaking to Okoro Austine of  BIAFRA WRITERS at the event, were some who expressed feeling of excitement in being part of the historic event, they spoke in their various local dialects ranging from Anang, Izon (Ijaw), Nembe, Ikwerre, Ibibio, Opobo, Ndoni etc.

The leader of  Afra Descendants Movement (ADM), Apostle Kalade M. Jene while addressing the Biafra writers/Tv crew stated that "The gathering of today is for the realisation of separate political existence for the Biafran people. It will signal the beginning of new age and civilisation for the black race, because it will be the start of a people whose state evolved by their own will and volition, instead of the colonial relics strewn around the world, passed off as countries and states, from Africa to the carribeans."

The climax of the occasion was the joint prayer session led by representatives of the various ethnic groups that make up Biafra; they prayed for divine strength and good health upon Nnamdi Kanu and the restoration of Biafra, followed by singing of Biafra songs to bring the programme to a remarkable end.
