Biafra is Just Noise ; But It Is Very Loud.

The jews go far as to compare the tongue with an arrow. That if you threaten to kill your friend with a sword,he might beg you and the sword gets into a sheath. But when an arrow leaves the bow ,it does not return. Like the tongue. Before the April 11,2015 governoship elections, King of Lagos,Akiolu, a former cop ,said ibos will drown in the lagoon if Ambode does not win.That is, ibos must avoid Jimmy Agbaje .In their own drowning interest. Mr Akiolu has since apologised. But Agbaje lost. In the Southwest of Nigeria,citizens that are not House are "Omo ibo" That means Ibo people: Edo,Efik,ibibios,ibos. In fact one will run out of fingers and toes if the tribes that make up "Omo Ibos" are counted. Then,as the then new president tried to find his grip on the Omnibus that Nigeria is, he appointed a retired army colonel as head of the Customs service among a litany of other Invidious sacks and appointment. What's more, Mr Buhari's economic policy or a lack of an economic policy is perceived as anti -business. The ibos are the "business people" in Nigeria. Then Radio Biafra. In an article in October, I said the government will help itself by leaving Nnamdi alone.I remarked that his arrest will only make hIm and his movement popular The rest is turbulent history. There have been demonstrations across the South East for self determination. Today,November 22,all the governors from the region are meeting at a hotel in Enugu . Plus all "elected officials".That would mean Senators,Congressmen. 43 groups are attending. There has been no such meeting. They didn't even have South Eastern Governor's forum when it was the rave. Well, reports say Mrs Buhari visited controversial Rev Mbaka who would last Sunday,November 17 ,denounce Biafra as" evil" prompting people to call for several parts of his body. He too, like King Akiolu,has apologised. Pretending that something does not exist makes the thing festoon. Like a sore. Of course, the Biafra that Massop and its many splinters want will not happen. Ibos are notoriously not united. .The rich ones,those that call the shots are outside the South East. They are everywhere. However, the sore will not heal until government change tactics .Lest the sore leads to armed robbery and allied violence. Sometime,silence is golden.
