Biafra: The London Buffoonery

By Chukwuemeka Chimerue || For Biafra Writers

July 27, 2017

Shame is a feeling that ought to envelope a person who is doing something wrong or has done wrong. I think it was Aristotle who once said: “while the sense of shame is not a virtue, the person with a sense of shame is also praised”. Indeed shame is emotion, but one which guides us to virtuous actions or ethical character.

Nigerian elites/leaders suffers from a deep psychotic absence of shame. For nothing else explains their bizarre inclinations and odd proclivities, often devoid of that little word: 'shame.' Let no one dignify these political urchins anymore by responding to their plethora of lies and bad leadership to the people.

Some 57 years after independence with trillions of dollars in easy oil revenues to boot and 210 years after the abolition of slave trade in 1807, Nigerian political leaders and elites, continue to act in a brainless and shameless slavery, still beholden to the development of their former colonial masters to the detriment of their own country.


They are unable to build world class hospitals, schools, infrastructures and other much needed social amenities. Instead, they troop to London for treatment, send their children to schools in London, fill London bank vaults and property market with billions of pounds they steal from their motherland's national treasury.

The President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari lies, for weeks on end, in a hospital in London, capital of Britain, our former colonial master. But it is rather unfortunate that Nigeria, his country, have no hospital that can effectively treat the President or at least offer an effective medical care to its ailing President, after 57 years of independence, after trillions of dollars in oil revenues, after 210 years since slavery was abolished. Our teaching hospitals are decrepit. Our schools are hopeless. Our people steep in poverty. Our infrastructures are eyesores. We lack even the slightest rudimentary medicare one could easily get.

As if these are not shameful enough, these same locusts troop, and have always done so in the past five decades, without any iota of shame, to London ostensibly to visit and pose for pictures, with sick Buhari. But it is all about crass and gross political exigency, to retain the power to rape the country. Governors elected and politicians elected but refuse to provide good hospitals, herd to a good offshore hospital to visit the ailing President, in London; the capital of our colonial master's country.

If I were white, a Briton, I will hold in total contempt, these greedy horde of black men, Nigerians, with no sense of history, no shame, no dignity, no love for their country and peoples, who pour billions of dollars into Western hospitals, schools, properties, banks, etc. I will wonder if they are cursed. I will absolutely despise them. Their crass ignorance, lack of intelligence and primitive accumulation of monies to spend and salt away in the same countries that enslaved and colonized their forebears. They are the new slaves. They plunder their country and rape their people for their old colonial masters.


But as a white man, I will also hope that they never wake up from their shameless buffoonery and that is exactly how the Westerners feel about them.
No wonder multiple agitations here and there, particularly the Biafra struggle, have risen to tear down into pieces, the country where there is no modicum of hope. Still its leaders are adamant to the danger that lies ahead. They would totally reject and throw to the trash bin any attempt to change the status quo.

It seems that their penchant for treasury looting, and impunity have gotten much hold on them that they won't easily let go for the general benefit of the people. They shut their eyes and ears to the pleas and demands of the people they claim to be serving their interest, yet in reality, it is their own selfish interests they are serving. May God save us all from the hands of our plunderers and slave-masters!


  1. A gripping piece! Shame, shame, shame. Yes, this is London buffoons and show of shame. I never knew that Black Africans especially most Nigerian politicians and rulers are this ignorant and unwise. How can any sensible citizen believe the deception of APC and their corrupt rulers? Time will tell the truth. Shameless liars! Biafrans must do whatever it takes to exit this corrupt, lawless and corrupt contraption called Nigeria! If we have to fight again, let us begin now to prepare for it. This time, it’ll be different because everybody is sick and tired of this evil nation and wicked rulers.
