IPOB: Opening the Eyes of the Myopic

Written by Mazi Onyebuchi Eze
2nd February 2019

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) globally, once stated: "If we try to get Biafra the same way others got theirs in the past, we may stay till one thousand years and we will not get Biafra because Biafra will come as last miracle on earth".

Some people are daily ranting and claiming to be the best journalists that Biafra has ever produced and as such, have the mechanisms to get access classified information no matter how complexly concealed. This may not be disputed because I for one, am not one by academic discipline.  I have repeatedly maintained that I am a volunteer Biafran journalist for the restoration of my fatherland via the struggle. I am basically a Christian missionary educationist cum Church administrator by training. I will proudly confine myself to pure church ministry engagements should Biafra regains her full restoration today and get such, bequeathed to my children as a gift of excellence.

With particular reference to the statement of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as earlier referred to, the following questions should be of concern to us, viz:

>> What other ways did sovereign nations of past records toe in realising their independence that are yet unexploited in our methodology?  Such methods that if we fail to apply, will drag for the next one thousand years before Biafra is restored?


Arms conflict which culminated into a United Nations' supervised open ballot referendum that eventually led to their exit from Sudan.


Direct open declaration by the Zionist Movement that led to arms conflict. The Israelis got out of the remains of the fallen Ottoman Empire and gained the recognition of international community years after the fierce war with the Arab world.


Arms conflict that led to direct recognition by the international community. Both regained their freedom from Greater Ethiopia.


There was an internally organized referendum and proclamation of self sovereignty which culminated into arms conflict. This later, was given recognition by Germany and other European countries. Croatia thereafter, exited the Old Yugoslavia.


These experienced arms conflict that led to the outright dismemberment of what remained of Yugoslavia after the departure of Croatia. The Serbians subsequently abandoned the nomenclature of Yugoslavia which was the name used to hold down an unwilling people for centuries.


Great Britain's approved referendum by open balloting led to the carving out of Ireland Republic from Britain with Northern Ireland yet remaining part of the United Kingdom.


All the fifteenth (15) countries that left the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR), got propelled for dissolution through the instigation of the Western world. This of

course triggered off geo-political war between the USSR and the United States of America through her military base in Cuba. USSR was then gradually welding enormous military might comparable to that of Nazi Germany of 1945. This actually led to the final dismemberment of the Old Soviet Union that gave birth to the existing indigenous nations, leaving Russia on her own from the old pack.

The long list of further references of exited countries from their colonial stock cannot be exhausted here. However, the above analysis are exceptional guides on how those nations under review, got their independence. Through the divine mandate upon the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, he pointedly stated: "If we try to get Biafra restored through the way others got theirs, we will not get it in one thousand years".

Referring to the above list, we have noticed:
* Arm conflicts
* United Nations supervised referendum
* Internally organized referendum
* Mother nations' approved open referendum
* Direct open declaration by the agitators
*External instigation by Western countries

Presently, the IPOB as ably led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not contemplating adopting any of the above listed methods but rather, toeing a different path to referendum, devoid of conventional balloting. It is premised on outright boycott of the upcoming Nigerian government organized presidential election which if successfully implemented in line with the restoration effort, will lead to the establishment of a Biafran government with full cabinet and functional portfolios even from exile. The Interim Prime Minister, Provincial Administrators, Legislators, Cabinet and Agencies, will be unveiled. I am convinced that as this unfolds, the international community will be left with no other option than to accord recognition to Biafra as it did to Israel, Croatia, Eritrea, etcetera, who boldly took respective steps to effect their overwhelming desires.

It is difficult to state here however, that if these myopic crop of individuals who are parading themselves as first class journalists really understood the content of the broadcast of the IPOB leader on the 1st of January 2019 or they only allowed the irritation of high-tech farming, road construction, job creation/opportunity  which the yet to be known Briafran Prime Minister and his Cabinet, into morbid facebook yappings. There would not have been any need for this classified information but it's imperative that Biafrans fully understand why they must remain indoors on Saturday 16th February 2019, when the Nigerian government organized presidential election will be taking place. The election must be boycotted in it's entirety.

Concluding, Biafrans need be wary against all these distracting voices coming at this time to divert their attention from obeying the orders of the IPOB leadership. If the presidential election is successfully boycotted across Biafraland, the IPOB Directorate of State will definitely and strategically, unveil the Biafran Government under a choice Prime Minister that will commence work. THIS OF COURSE, WILL BECOME THE DEFINITION OF THE LAST MIRACLE ON EARTH WHICH THE BIAFRAN INDEPENDENCE WILL SIGNIFY.

Let us not allow people, bereft of intelligence gathering and sharing, to deceive us into doing the unproductive. Their only stock in trade is  employing their much touted mechanisms to extract information. We are getting to our destination, fellow Biafrans. Just ensure that you totally boycott the elections and then get ready to witness the after effect of February 16, 2019.
