2012, worst year in Nigeria’s history –Rommy Ezeonwuka

10

By ZIKA BOBBY

Just recently, the Ogirisi of Igboland, Chief Rommy Ezeonwuka, organised a cultural event at Rojenny Tourist and Games Village, Oba, Anambra State, to mark the end of 2012. The event, which involved various dance groups, masquerades and musicians, was witnessed by visiting African Americans, who came to identify with their ancestral home.

He spoke on  the purpose of the cultural event, the state of Ndigbo, Nigeria and his assessment of 2012.

Excerpts

Death of Yakowa, Azazi and others.

It is most unfortunate that such prominent people had to die like that. It is another sign of carelessness in some quarters, which really have to be probed with all seriousness. It is sad and shameful to have such accident at this modern age of highly sophisticated and advanced technology. Those in position to probe the incident should do a good job to unmask the circumstance behind it.

Reason behind the cultural night event?

It is to revive and promote the culture of the Igboman which is on the thresh hold of being extinguished. Our people have massively turned their back at the culture and tradition of our ancestors and the development is having negative impact on our day-to-day lives. Things are changing for the worse. Other tribes are progressing ahead of Ndigbo because they respect the culture of their lands.

People are dying untimely under unacceptable but avoidable circumstances. Crime rate is high. Armed robbers and kidnappers are terrorizing people in Igbo land. As I Igbo guys in the Diaspora, Abuja, Lagos and elsewhere did not come home for Christmas and New Year because of fear of being kidnapped or attacked by armed robbers. Worst of all most Igbo businessmen who have enough resources to invest in the land and provide subsistence activities for the youths are running away. They are taking their businesses to other parts of the country and aboard where they feel their lives and their resources are safe.

The situation is very bad and dangerous toward the development and progress of Ndigbo and nobody is doing anything about it. The Federal Government appears to be incapacitated in checkmating kidnappers and armed robbers in Igbo land. As a matter of fact Ndigbo is doomed if we don’t find a lasting solution to this menace. I have told them that the solution is not running away, they have to come back and let us join hands to fight the problem.

As the Ogirisi Igbo with the mandate for conflict resolution among the people individually, family, community and general level, I have made recommendations in finding lasting solutions to the problems facing Ndigbo. My recommendations include, according those who died during the Biafran civil war the normal Igbo burial rites. Secondly, I have told Ndigbo to stop depositing dead bodies in mortuary because it unholy and absolute nonsense. Storing dead bodies in mortuary is totally nonsense.

Our antecessors in their wisdom and concern for the welfare of the succeeding children established it that when someone dies the person has to be buried immediately with the survivors according him or her the deserved burial rites. But today we have ignored that particular way of burial by storing dead bodies in mortuary. In Igbo land today the number of dead bodies in various morgues are alarming and I can tell you that their spirits are behind some of the problems we have in Igbo land now.

I have observed as Ogirisi Igbo that the causes of our problems especially as regards to insecurity are traceable to the failure of the people to follow the cultural path of their ancestors.

African Americans in attendance

They came to identify with Igboland as their ancestral homeland. There was a research, which proved that Igboland is the ancestral home of the African Americans. It was discovered that their fathers were those who were sold to the white people from Igbo land as slaves during the slave trade and those who were convinced by the out come of the research came down from America to perform the ritual of cleansing at the palace of Eze-Eri in Aguleri, Anambra East Local Government Area of Anambra State.

They were taken to a place called Omambala River where the Eze-Eri carried out the cleansing exercise to cleanse them from the abomination and stigma of slave trade.

 Nigerians being bad eaters

We have to review our diet. The kinds of food Nigerians eat are terrible. I have told people around me that it is very bad to eat pounded cassava because pounded cassava, which is called fufu, or akpu is highly demonic. It is demonic in the sense that it has no nutritional ingredients capable to enhance one’s body or sense of reasoning. Most Nigerians don’t know that bad food contribute a lot to their sense of reasoning on the negative.

Have you ever thought about the reason why Nigeria cannot be found in the fields of science and technology? Why our athletes cannot win Olympic medal? It is because of bad food that people consume on daily basis. We have to look at the diet we take. India, China and other Asian countries did all these things before reviewing their diets and other things before finding their way out of the dark. Except we do the same we shall ever remain in darkness and suffering.

Assessment of 2012

Very poor. Nothing changed nor improved for the better. Corruption increased, armed robbery and kidnapping increased.  Nigeria still remains in the dark without hope for steady power supply. More people died this year than last year. Is that a good sign of a growing country? So 2012 is a colossal failure and except we review ourselves as a nation we are going nowhere.

  3. You are speaking without information and with bunch of fanatism. Who said Akpu breeds dullards and fools? Take Semovita for a year and Akpu another and see the difference. There’r no roaming spirits of mortuary teaching a gud kid how to join a bad kid.

  4. Ezebue onochie on

    Ogirishi igbo u have spoken well,are you telling Ndigbo to adopt traditional way of life and shun modernism?you re indirecting advocating ritualism and appeasing of the gods,thumb up.boko haram re saying the same thing that western education is a sin,nigerians laughed over the assertion because they re aborki and they termed it ignorance.but the frank is we re disobeying our ancestors and they arent happy,our land is full with calamity and shld be cleansd.dodorima Ndigbo

  5. Which Way Nigeria on

    We should love GOD, obey GOD and love one another and we shall see that GOD will change our ugly situation for good. And not the other way round as rituals. All powers belong to GOD and no one else, period.

  6. Ezebue onochie on

    All powers belong 2 God no doubt.but the trueth must be told,u killed my kids,children,wife,dad ,mum etc stole what belongs 2 me,later you came to me preaching peace without making me happy first.Those Nigeria gvt killed in civil was be appeased and buried appropriately as tradition demands so that their souls could rest secondly as a multi cultural and multi religious country we should appreciate our various tradition.when christ came he observed the jewish law and kept it even participated in it.Great countries like israel,china,india,japan observed their cultures they didnt not abandon it,conclusively politics and religion can never be interwoven in a state where there is multi religions so Nigeria must not copy america in every thing.b4 coming of d white men we have our own way of life that is culture,religion is dif from culture.Nig wake up and realise ur potentials,different culture one pple,enough of killings lets appease d brutally murded souls.FG/Ndi igbo should appease d unrested spirits of her sons and daughters.

  7. MY BROTHER YOU GOT IT VERY RIGHT,BUT LET TELL THIS YOU BETTER PREPARE FOR THE WORST,THIS 2013 WILL BE WORST THAN THE CIVIL WAR PERIOD PLUS ABACHA DAYS TOGETHER WITH 2012,
    EVERYTHING WILL GO FROM WORST TO WORST,ALL THIS ARE GODS WAYS TO REDEEM US FROM PDP AND CLUELESS JONATHAN,THERE IS NO GOVERNMENT IN NIGERIA,BUT A GANG OF ROBBERS AND LOOTERS HAVE TAKEN OVER THE NATION,SEE MALACHI 4 V 1 AND HEB 12 V 29,MY JOY AND ASSURANCE IS THAT GODS FIRE AND ANGER IS OVER ALL OF THEM AND THEY ARE GETTING THE SIGNS WITH FREQUENT PLANE CRASHES,YET AS PHARAOH THEY WILL NEVER REPENT HENCE THEY MUST BE CONSUMED.

  8. The only solution to corruption, violence, plane crashes, leaders’ death while in power, Accident of leaders while in convoy, ill health of our leaders, killing of innocent Nigerians by Boko Haram, kidnapping, armed robbery, natural disasters, is just to appease the blood of the innocent Igbos brutally murdered by Nigeria Govt. Nigeria Govt should summon Igbo leaders and Ask Ndigbo for forgiveness bcos they have not forgiven Nigeria govt especially Gowon and his co. In that way, the souls of those brutally murdered during the genocide(war) will return to their graves & rest in peace. Secondly, Igbos are still marginalized in everything. Nigeria cannot be better until this pple are given their pride of place in this country. Any thing short of these will continue to spell doom for the already failed state called Nigeria. I WEEP FOR 9ja.
