An Insight Into Mbaka's Outburst Against Peter Obi

By Eluwa Chidiebere Chinazu | Biafra Writers 

October 6th, 2022. 

Yes, after about three months of suspension, the face of the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugwu, Biafra, resurfaces on the pages of newspapers with his recent statement against Peter Obi with whom he had altercations. After reopening the Adoration Ministry on the 3rd of October, 2022, the Spiritual Father was quoted as saying, "I will respect the mother church, I'm going to the monastery but if Mr. Peter Obi is not disgraced at the polls come 2023, then I'm not called by God."

No doubt, the above statement glaringly has put a knife in what holds together the supporters of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi. Recently, the latter has garnered supports from the helpless Nigerian youths who believe that there's an easy road to revolution after their failure with the EndSars protests.

It seems that Fr. Mbaka's outburst has shattered what I call the shambolic hope for a better Nigeria being harbored by the Nigerian youths.  Fr. Mbaka's statement lends credence to the earlier observation by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi kanu. Over the time Kanu has reiterated that in the grand scheme of things, no Southeasterner can rule Nigeria. The crowd rallying round Peter Obi however puts this assertion into question. But then, Mabaka emerges with leverage.

My findings are: Nigerian youths possibly see protests as a pleasure trip, an exercise designed to cheer souls and sing away sorrows. They don’t engage in it necessarily to effect changes or achieve anything meaningful. In that light, Obi rallies are, to them, an avenue to show off their gyration prowess, and not necessarily targeted to change the status quo.

The wishful thinkers are praying and prophesying how their Obi dream wish will be fulfilled. But they forget that wishful thinking only placates a troubled soul, temporarily relieving the pains of existing predicaments. Facing reality and following the voice of reason will only help.

Nigeria is a well-known fantastically corrupt entity. How will something as big as presidential election be free and fair therefore?

Peter Obi supporters are very afraid to ask themselves the necessary hard questions. How will the government stop foreigners from Niger Republic, Chad and other neighboring countries at the northern hemisphere from voting?

The youths have not even been able to attract justice for the souls lost at Lekki. To see them cheering politicians rather than asking the hard questions is actually excruciating. Politicians are all the same.

So While Obi may be the lesser evil among the topflight candidates, he is not entirely clean as his supporters tend to vend him, for he was just an ordinary governor of a state when he massacred his brothers and dump their bodies in Ezu river.

What Nigerians need is a referendum to determine if they want to be together or not.
