@ FEB 3:26.. The whole pomp and pagentry is solely for the bravery of OJUKWU, his achievements which u might not achieve in dis life even the next one as well.. He earned all the accolades bin bestowed on him.. He lived, fought and died for wat he believed.
He was amongst the world's finest, intelligent and eloquent.. Fought for his people and Neva gave up on the emergence of BIafra.. His people's hero.. D revolutionary man with so much class.. Sheer class in everyfin he did.. He deserves not just national burial but a world burial.. The left huge footprints.. The tots of deserving people round d globe r wiv his family.. RIP

Ojukwu did not fight for no daggone Igbos, he fought for his own ego to be placated when he was passed up after the coup and counter coup of '66.

Biafra was declared when the govt at the center did not bend over backwards to placate him.

Before anyone starts shouting about pogrom this and that, just remember those who were killed and whose killing led to the pogroms. Sardauna, Balewa and Maimalari to name a few.

The bravest man Nigeria has ever produced, what u saw while sitting down many years ago if the cowards(they know themselves) like let them climb to the top of an Iroko tree they will never see it. We are not one Nigeria just as this great man said. Today evidences prove beyond doubt that we are not and can never be one Nigeria let us stop fooling ourselves. And for all the ignorant fools hating on him they should shut their trap cos they will never get such recognition now or in death. An accolade well deserved Ra ru nke oma Eze ndi Igbo gburu gburu, Dike n'agha, na ije gi nke oma,

Such a prolonged funeral. Winston Churchill played a major part in winning the second world war. He was buried in one day, Ojukwu lost the biafran war but his funeral will probably last for a month. Black people.
