The Need to Know Who you are and Not What You are Called

By Enwogu Chukwuemeka Divine|Biafra writers

June 30, 2020

As we have recently learnt through the teachings of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the name Nigeria implies darkness, backwardness, and bad omen. None of this is positive, and to every thinking man, that the country has been everything but progressive is no longer a mystery. Biafra on the other hand has been from the ancient, the British in their conquest crusade of the past centuries, conquered her alongside the Arewas and Oduduwa, and against the wish of any of these three, merged them as one nation. A call for Biafra is therefore a call to our true identity.

Some hear this call and pay deaf ear to it. But if this class of people really knows their true identity, they’d drop every other thing to join the struggle for freedom.  For Flora Shaw, a girlfriend to Fredrick Lugard, to name a country Nigeria – actually meaning Niger-area – is the heights of insult.

Europe sat in Berlin in 1884 and 1885 to share Africa among themselves. Well, that’s an act of conquest, but then, what excuse have we today to still hold on to the artificial boarders they created? Why don’t we do away with their influence and return to our ancient boarders? You think about it all and you begin to wonder if really the so-called intellectuals in our clime are worthy of that name.

The disillusioned class that call Nigeria giant of Africa don’t know that Nigeria’s passport is printed by Ireland. Even the currency is printed abroad. What then is giant about a country that can neither print her own passport nor mint her own currency? Is it the economy, security or what? Nigeria is quite below the sea level. Yet some call it a giant? Giant of Africa? Giant in corruption and backwardness perhaps.

In 1967 our people made the mistake of allowing Gowon – a murderous head of state – to establish Niger-Delta which was actually aimed at dividing the Biafran people and turning one part against the other. Elohim in His infinite mercy has sent us a leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, to lead us back to our root and to freedom.
