Dear Biafrans- By Etcetera

Etcetera talks about the state of Biafra, the recent shut down of Radio Biafra and how he thinks the Igbos have been marginalized in Nigeria. He also talked about the growth of Nigeria.

I have been receiving a lot of mails and phone calls in recent weeks requesting that I lend my voice in support of the ongoing campaign for the sovereign state of Biafra and to also speak up against the recent shut down of Radio Biafra by National Broadcasting Commission. I have decided to make my opinion known to those who have been bombarding me with requests to support the Biafran movement.
Yes, I believe that the Igbo have been marginalised in Nigeria right from 1970 till date. I also believe that as a people, the Igbo have every right to speak out and seek redress. I believe that no tribe or ethnic group in Nigeria deserves to be marginalised or shut out by certain quarters of government because of an incident of the past. Just like every Igbo man, I believe that Biafra was a good dream born out of a necessity at that time. It was a good dream which went horribly wrong and became a nightmare for us, the Igbo people and the whole of Nigeria from 1967 to 1970, from which I believe we have woken up.
It will be foolhardy to dream the same dream in the same way and manner without thoroughly accounting for why and how it turned into a nightmare, and factoring in the changes that have taken place in Nigeria since the 1960s.
ADVERTISEMENT
The thought that the actualisation of the sovereign state of Biafra is in itself the solution to all the problems of Ndigbo is to display an understandable naivety about human nature and today’s politics. What we need as a people is a new vision that will encompass the lessons of the past, the changes that have taken place since the end of the civil war, the reality of present day Nigeria and demand for a system founded on justice, liberty and equality under the rule of law for Ndigbo and non Igbo as well.
I believe this new vision is attainable. They say charity begins at home and in this regard, I believe it is time for every honest and sincere Igbo man or woman, to channel his or her energy towards actualising good leadership and government in Igboland by joining the political process. It is time for every one of us to unite against corruption in our land.
It is time for Ndigbo to come together to reverse this ubiquitous trend of bad leadership ravishing Igboland and put in place a system that would enable the best of us to emerge as leaders. Great nations are ruled by their best minds and not by a band of common thieves without respect for individual liberty and democracy that do nothing but devise ingenious ways to looting the treasury and serve the vilest and most primitive of human instincts.
Without this political and cultural change embedded in the concept of our future, Igboland will remain underdeveloped, and that in itself, will constitute a gargantuan problem for us in the future. Making this necessary change in igboland will ensure that if and ever or when Nigeria collapses as a result of our collective idiocy, irresponsibility, ignorance and corruption, and the jumbo pay of politicians, Ndigbo will be better placed to build a new nation based on justice, equality, rule of law, tolerance, development and honesty. War has never been the solution to any problem.
I didn’t witness the civil war but from what I saw in my recent visit to Maiduguri, Adamawa and Plateau state, I have become a disciple of dialogue as a means to resolve issues. If Biafra will become a reality, it shouldn’t be through the barrel of a gun. It is wrong to seek divorce by putting a gun to your spouse’s head. We should realise that a divorce from Nigeria is also possible if the Nigeria state comes to its natural end because of years of ethnic and religious prejudices, injustices, and vision-less irresponsible, corrupt leadership that failed to lay the foundation of a viable state and make the necessary social investment for its survival.
This might be the natural course of events if Nigeria continues to sleep walk into disaster and neglect honest nation building. We shouldn’t continue to pursue the Biafra dream in the way and manner some people and groups are doing at the moment without regard to the present reality. It can only undermine the whole essence of the struggle. As an Igbo man, there is nothing I want for Igbo that I do not want for other ethnic groups. There is nothing
I wish for my fellow Christians that I do not wish for Muslims. We are all humans after all. We are all brothers and sisters divided by language, skin colours and religion. I believe that enlightenment is recognition of this basic facts, and that underneath our skins, flows blood of the same colour and minds that can think alike and able to overcome the prejudices which our difference try to impose on our judgment. There is nothing that can justify the killing of a fellow man. I can only lend my voice to a vision that doesn’t entail the destruction of lives and property.
I am sorry to say that the continuous clamour for the recognition of Biafra by America may not yield much because of the selfish nature of America’s foreign policy. If there is nothing in it for America, America won’t get involved. We are a great and industrious people. 
For a start, won’t it be better to seek economic independence and have Nigeria and the rest of the world depend on us for something? Today, Africa has gone from car assemblage to total manufacturing.
I am proud that I am alive to witness this history, that a Nigerian made car can actually be better that the Toyotas and Hondas of this world, and it is all due to the ingenuity of an Igbo man. Ndigbo, this can be a place to start. Igbo kwenu!!

So well spoken! That is partly the reason why I have developed such a frightening calm to the state of this nation. It might be God's way of telling us we dnt belong together. I believe ibos should develop their own states,it's going to be so difficult because we lack landmass and all,but difficulty is what ibos have lived with under nigeria for a long time.
Nigeria will eventually divide. I'm nt saying this out of hatred or anything, God knows. It's smething that is gradually inevitable though it may seem impossible now. We will never work with the extent of tribalism in the country, some tribes must surely feel marginalised and used. And in all honesty, we can't even say we love one another as a nation. You feel more kinship to your tribesmen farrrr more than other tribes. And quite frankly some tribes, like ibos and Hausas have absolutely nothing in common.

Hey bro! nice talk, but I want to tell that Biafra is not an Igbo stuff. Igbo is a language...Biafra is a nation (south-south & south East). we are done with Nigeria and their big big stories. It's now clear and obvious that Buhari and his cohorts don't wish us good!!! Bros it's Biafra or death ,cos they are killing us already (eg:@ Aba yesterday). If Nigeria don't let us go ....then we will have no choice but to fight for our freedom! They said Radio Biafra has been shut down but that's a very big lie! I have been listening to radio Biafra for more than a month now uninterrupted! (if you doubt me tune to radio Biafra 102.1fm by 7:30pm). The only hope for us as human beings is Biafra .And we will get it even at the cost of our lives!!!

Is part if actualizing the biafra of our dream

I'm an Igbo man, I do not need Lord Lugard to come from Britain to tell me I am a Nigerian, I am not. I will not answer an 'illegal identity' forced on me by a white man.

Victor Adedeji said...

Ur argument is so ambivalent in nature. As much as majority of Ndigbos want secession, they still dream of Lagos, and a flourishing Nigeria. As you have rightly said, u can't eat ur cake and still have it. The question is: why not make the whole of Nigeria depend on Biafra? Cos I believe that is enof leverage for a successful secession. Again, it is only these young generations of warped mentality that would want a secession thru violent means. The older generations that experienced 1967-1960 would not want something of such; never again in their life time and for their children as well.

Thanks for your insight. The Igbos can go perish in their land locked State of Biafra. Trust me they will not be missed and it will be good riddance to bad rubbish.

I laugh in Eket. What is this constant threat of secession. It is not the Yoruba with their seaports. It is not the South South with their oil and gas. It is not the North with their agricultural produce. It is common Ibo with their crime, illiteracy, uncouth nature, lack of history, ape like behaviour and inferiority complex. Igbo kwanu?! Please.

Absolutely. I agree with him 100%. There is almost next to nothing in the SE(Biafra). With common sense we know that we won't be able to survive alone now, with even more corrupt and greedy, self-centered politician. Before a break there should be a good plan for self reliance and sustainability. TO ME, (for now)THE ACTUALISATION OF THE SOVEREIGN STATE OF BIAFRA IS A MIRAGE. #NoToViolence

Anyone saying that Igbo land is landlocked is someone who has never looked at the map of Nigeria well. I don't think some people even know that Portharcourt is an Igbo city. A world class seaport can be built in Oguta in Imo state, an Inland seaport is in Onitsha. All 5 Igbo States have oil and Imo, Abia and Anambra are already Oil producing.

No Going back on Biafra

Anonymous said...

Don't worry, by the time we sweep all these old generals that fought during the civil war away and the oil prices fall to N20 per barrel or less (which will happen sooner than we think because of the renewable energy craze now in the US) then we will see things start to happen. Then seccession will happen easier and faster than we think (if the SE really wants it) My opinion is that there should be a referendum. It is only the oil holding the North and South of this country.

FRANCIS EJEBI said...

ETCETERA ndewo. Daalu. It was as though you entered my mind and pulled out the thoughts I have been nursing on this matter. In my own opinion, the Igbo as a people are too blessed to be marginalized by anybody or group. Our problem has been bad leadership; in 16 years of democracy, what have our so called "governors" done for our region, knowing fully well our collective history? To me, if there has been any form of marginalization whatsoever, the worst kind came from our very own governors closely followed by our other political representatives; at least, 98% of them. They should first and foremost repent from this evil act of filial sabotage before anybody would apportion blames to external entities.

They're so stubborn. Why can't you people move on. But no, you must stick to the past. Move forward people, called ibo.
What do you people have self, no land mass, no agricultural products, no oil and gas. What do you have? And yet you want to break Nigeria up. Don't be stingy ibo people, look beyond and see the future. Fight for what is right, honesty, integrity, good governance. When governors, president do what is wrong, come out en mass and fight for what is right. There is power in masses than you think of. Peace

By nature Igbos are competitive and industrious imagine when all the Igbos stay in Igbo land what would happened? There won't be enough market for them. It's because they are able to travel to places where there are spaces for them to start and grow their business that is part of the logic too. It doesn't make sense now but think about it.

It would be foolhardy for any igbo man to cry out for succession at this time. Let's look within; mention any igbo state with clear improvements in different sectors of its economy!! None! These same states get revenue from centre like every other state regularly. Even within the igbos, they marginalise one another based on 'sub-tribes' or region! The problem is within not external! #thinkagain

Adaobi, I just established my props for you for this comment. Thumbs up! He was trying so hard to sound politically correct in this write-up. I just lost whatever respect I had for him. I'm more comfortable with people that refuse to call '6' half a dozen. This write-up is just too thrashy and vague. Which region in Nigeria is developed? Non! The only thing that can bring about development in this country is a total restructuring of all political structures. Let's do away with this capitalist presidential system. Let's promote competition by bringing back regional governments.

A fool will always be a fool. Look at America there are different races ethnic groups American religions all merged and are living together because to a certain extent there is tolerance there's no room 8 this world for goats like u even if u have your own state if u don't learn tolerance that's how u will all turn on each other. Shame on you. Ewu mehn

@Toronto Finest or whatever you call yourself, you seem to be in the bondage of hate and tormented by the fear of Igbos. What a waste of energy that you can channel to improving your life. Pls stop shitting in your pants at the mention of Igbos. The matter is already settled. No amount of hate, discrimination, marginalisation or hate campaign can stop Igbos.

I agree that Nigeria will eventually divide. It just a matter of time. The day the oil in the South finishes or oil is discovered in the North, Nigeria will be history. Mark my words.

God bless u Etcetera for this brilliant article. Have always argue this with my Igbo brothers that agitating for Biafra shouldn't be our priority for now. When our Eastern Governors, Politicians, Business moguls, traditional leaders and even religious leaders are all Selfish, Greedy and Fool of themselves! Look around the Eastern region, no fruitful and reasonable investment, industries, infrastructure and even positive policies that we can boast of to bring about generation of revenues, jobs, regional growth, attracts foreign and local investments. Thank God for our mass out cry that brought about the only International airport and yet the just can't even make it attract the suppose investment and accolades it ought to. With the "ndi igbo" know for business, our dear leaders can't even fight to build sea port to boast smooth transaction of business for there people. So does agitating for Biafra should shift the energy and attention towards our leaders asking for improvement of the region an make it an envy of others.

Abass n the 1st anon it is ppl like u that goes to igbo man's house n beg for food, and I know say u dey die for igbo gurls cos they r beautiful, and igbos dnt need u ppl as well idiots

God bless u Francis, u just reacted the way I wanted too! Our leaders are so shameless and cowards! No meaningful Investment, Infrastructure, Industries and even policies to talk of! Lagos is planning for 2nd sea port and airport, whereas our lame leaders can't even attract investment with the only airport we have in our region. Or is it sea port, that one na for dream I fit see that one for East cos our fat ass senators and house of reps only debate for there belly. Is high time we youths take it to them, to bring about this changes!!!

I think the writer tried, though i.dont no.him. But what I understand is that igbos must change there ways before anything good can come there way. I won't lie now that I love igbo people but if there ideology of life change to batter sure I would. I am a realist. Long live igbo people long live Nigeria.

Ignoramus, yes Port-Harcourt is an Igbo city originally a town called Diobu before it was named after Lewis Harcourt by the British when they established a port to export the coal they were mining in Enugu. Nigerians are either grossly ignorant or just blinded by tribalism to the point where they can no longer think. Google is your friend my dear. And pls stop shitting in your pants just because you heard the word Igbo.

Dear writer, you are a celebrity who is promoting the disunity of a state. You talk about mismanagement of funds and the likes, isnt it the representatives from all sides of the nation that steal funds?.you are a celebrity, someone who should speak for all. You are a disgrace. i am a yoruba man who just finished serving in the poorest state in the eastern region of Nigeria (ebonyi). i could see that even the igbos cheat each other as it is in most tribes of the nation.Try and use your position to promote unity and speak on better ways to grow our nation..LONG LIVE THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA

Retard! Igbos do not support these Biafra scam stars. Only idle minds spoil for war. Many Igbos are established and self made and doing things for their little communities. What have those calling for this war ever done for Igbos? Nothing!

Anonymous said...

What have you done, even mistakenly to contribute to the development of your village? Nothing. And now, you are calling for war to destroy the hard work of others making impacts? You are an enemy of progress and God won't spare you!
