CIA’s forecast: Can Nigeria forestall it?

37

By Godwin Nzeakah

Fresh facts seem to have emerged concerning the CIA’s gloomy prediction about Nigeria and 2015. In an interview with Vanguard (29/11/2012) Chief Abu King Shuluwa, one of the founding fathers of the PDP revealed that there is a liberal clause in the 1914 document, proclaiming Nigeria’s amalgamation. The clause, according to him permits any component to pull out of the federation after the expiry of one hundred years, or precisely in 2014. I wept for Nigeria after reading all what Shuluwa, an elder statesman had to say.

According to him, “Nigeria may not be the same again if we are not careful”; in which case one had expected the man to suggest the way out. But on the contrary, Shuluwa displayed a rather stunning I-don’t-care-attitude and bravado that would be the envy of some Afghanistan youth. Hear him. “By the time Jonathan goes for a second term some of us will become like old trailers without brakes and we will be descending a slope. So, anything on the road will be crushed.”

You can beat that if you like, but to it all my reaction has been that of total disappointment, because in Shuluwa’s capacity as an elder statesman whom who we expect in no small measure to help put out the raging fire on our mountain, he should not be seen to be stoking it, instead. I am also aghast that in his bitter and apocalyptic vision of tomorrow’s Southern Nigeria Shuluwa resurrected the long forgotten issue of Biafra perhaps as a way of dragging the Southeast into his gloomy prognostications or to lampoon and deride them. Again his words: “The Niger Delta alone cannot stand the force of Biafra.

But if they think they can, that country will be destroyed because America will back them up and there will be fighting for a long time and we will be watching them… In the south, you are going to have more than five nations. Everybody that has oil will not want the other person to be part of it”. Is that so? Well, and well. This may be the kind of hogwash, ill-digested calculations that go on yonder all the time and which induce that kind of cold comfort that befogs and blocks people’s sense of reason.

This may be proof enough that the aggressive demand for return of power to the North and its audacity are probably aimed at forcing Jonathan out of office and possibly provoking secessionist bids in the South which it is hoped that a combination of mutual antagonism in the region, American might and the ghost of Biafra would help to pulverize. In this connection, since it is common knowledge that Biafra is dead and buried, Shuluwa is only obliquely suggesting that any Niger Delta entity would be attacked and crushed by the Southeast-Ndigbo precisely. Why?

What for: a Niger Delta whose wealth and population do not only exceed those of the South- east but also those of Swaziland, Switzerland, Sweden and Singapore put together? Well, anybody has a right to paint any picture they fancy. Anyway, Shuluwa’s allusion to America should not be dismissed with a wave of the hand if history is anything to go by. But if the U.S. Ever gets involved in the Niger Delta problem, I fear it may not be on invitation nor in the overly simplistic manner suggested by Shuluwa. We should not pray for it, but if tomorrow as a result of some people’s greed, Jonathan is forced out of office to the chagrin of his people, and the oil fields and installations were once again visibly seriously threatened, it is possible that America could conveniently intervene on the pretext of protecting the huge foreign investment in the area, especially if Nigeria is unable to stamp out Boko Haram at that point in time.

This is how the historic Monroe/Roosevelt Doctrine could be conjured against us. The Monroe/Roosevelt Doctrine permits America, acting alone or together with allies to “intervene, exercising international police power in flagrant cases of chronic wrongdoing or importance to curb same around the world”, particularly where American interests are involved. The doctrine has been used successfully against a number of Latin American countries in the past.

In a unique and eye-opening instance in 1903, the doctrine gave birth to a brand new nation, when rebel forces in the city of Panama, with the aid of the American Navy, terminated Colombian rule and proclaimed independence. Like the attraction of oil today in the Niger Delta area, the interest of America in Panama in 1903 was the Panama Canal project which they clinched, completed and opened in 1914, the year of Nigeria’s amalgamation. The Monroe Doctrine was significantly at play in the joint military operation by America, Britain, France and Japan that ended the Boxer Rebellion in China in 1900.

Therefore, given Nigeria’s dicey, awful scenario, if you ask me what the future holds in store for us as a nation, I am most likely to respond echoing Demosthenes, the great Athenian statesman, who once told his people. “It is not my business to guess what the future has in store for us; we may be sure it will bring us misfortune if we refuse to look the facts in the face.” The grim situation is unfortunate. Nigeria is blessed with a lot of resources, both human and economic, sufficient to make her one of the most prosperous and successful nations on earth, if only we can shun our greedy ways and imbibe a bit of the spirit of equity and live and let live.

That is why the National Assembly should not deceive itself to think that its recent village square gimmickry is a veritable substitute to the necessary dialogue to properly fix Nigeria and thus forestall CIA’s wicked if possible prediction. As to the question regarding how the South should respond to signals from the North in the years ahead, I would recommend the American attitude to the former Soviet Union which President Ronald Reagan displayed to a great effect as from 1984 when he told the Soviets that “we live in time of challenges to peace, but also of opportunities for peace.

We are prepared to discuss the problems that divide us and to work for practical, fair solutions on the basis of mutual compromise. But we insist that our negotiations deal with real problems, not atmospherics.” In addressing the Soviets that way, Reagan believed that he was dealing with a powerful but crafty and capricious opponent that suffered no fool gladly–an opponent that was ready to respond with equal sincerity, respect and seriousness only if you insisted on your right.

In fact, I used to compare the Arewa Consultative Forum with the Soviets, who believed strongly in the Leninist dictum: “If you are given, grasp; if you are beaten, run fast”. The Soviet nomenclatura, according to Micheal Voslensky, “attacks the weak and fears the strong; it kicks the timid and retreats from the resolute” and was eagerly ready to conquer the world if it was allowed to do so! But somehow it was not allowed, and the world is happier, calmer and safer for it today.

  1. My take in this is that nigeria should be allowed to disintegrate to forstall peace and avoid this impending blood bath come 2015.The north will resolutely remain uncompromising in the issue of presidency in 2015.But woe betide them if Jonathan is restrained by the northern oligarch to contest the 2015 election.Hell will definitely be let loose because southerners are not their slaves and should for no reason be underminded.

    • @ Efo thank you very much for what you said. Our best bet is seperation beside this no way. Northerners are satan family. They can never ever stop.their evil ways. Too many southerners have been killed for the past..decades. They beleived they are the owner of Nigeria and born to rule other tribes. They are all evil doers and they can never ever stop their evil ways. They have already black mail southerners that, they are the owner of the oil and thats why they are fighting them. I want Nigerians to log on line and read what Yar dua told President Obama..about. the oil on wednes day June 17th 2009. Obama and Yar dua conversation.

  2. Just like they said the world would end 11.11AM 21/12/2012. Yet the world goes on. Is it because it is the turn of Ndigbo to rule Nigeria that all this small talks of secessionist clause is coming up. Is it another S/S ploy to intimidate Nigeria again? Where is the 1914 amalgamation document? How about the 1960 independence constitution and 1963 Republic constitution. Did they uphold any secessionist clause? Why did Nigeria fight Biafra then? Didin’t the later two constitutions override whatever ill intent the Brits had in the 1914 amalgation treaty?

    The problem with today’s Nigeria is that it is a deaf country. It only hears and dances to the music of those who make the loudest noise and threaten it’s existence. Ndigbo should get up from slumber and fight for equity in the Nigerian project. You’ll lose much except you have also tasted the power of Aso Rock.. Be now the resolute not the timid! Awake brothers!

  3. Opara . C from U.K on

    Who ever seeks to bring down the entity Nigeria should think twice. History had that we were brought together by our colonial masters Britain. Then, there was no issue of oil well in any part of the country what so ever. Now that there is discovery of oil in some part of the country as well other natural resources, why can’t we seek to think of how to harness the resources rather than to destroy our entity. China of all people hasn’t any mineral resources, even Japan. They all depend on importation of natural resources to develop their economy. It in our interest to seek to eschew bitterness and mend our ways of reasoning to words our dear country Niger. If not for our greed and corruption, the entity called Nigeria should have surpass many countries like Malaysia and Singapore in terms of socio-economic development. Please let our comments be well guided as to avoid doom , when it is not our portion. War is born out of share greed and wickedness of man, we can not afford to trade on that part, hence we can afford to talk it over rather than to fight it over.

    • @ Opara . C what are you talking about? do you even know Nigeria history at all? better go and read what northerners forefathers told them on October 12 1960. Do you even under stand what northerners mean by born to rule. I beg just face your 419 and drug business in UK oooooo.

    • @ OPARA MY BROTHER ,PLEASE TELL THEM TO HEAR YOUR TRUE TALK AS MANY TIMES AS POSIBLE !! ALL THESE PEOPLE TALKING OF BREAKING UP THE COUNTRY DO THEY HAVE ANOTHER COUNTRY THEY CAN CALL HOME? ALL NA SAKARA !!. EVERY COUNTRY HAS HER OWN ILLS,EVEN THOUGH OURS MIGHT BE GREAT WE WILL SURVIVE IT.U.S.A SURVIVED THEIR OWN WILD WEST,NIGERIA WILL SURVIVE OUR OWN BOKO HARAM.LONG LIVE NIGERIA.

  4. Buhahaha, what do we have in this unity that some people enjoy so much? Is it the blood that flow from north to south,is it the hatred that people wear like cloth or the injustice that is found in high places? Tear down this shit called a country.

  5. We Nigerians need to understand that most statements being made on break up the country were based on emotions and sentiments. Even, when wife and husband break up marriages, they may not become enemies for life. They may reconcile and agree to operate on new basis. The break up of Soviet Union made each state to govern at its own system. It is stupid and even dangerous to continue enforcing unity if the foundation for it is being threaten with cartapillar. Chikena.

    • @ ABUBAKAR YOU ARE VERY CORRECT ALL NA SAKARA.NIGERIA WILL FOREVER REMAIN NIGERIA OR WE ALL DIE TOGETHER !.THERE IS NO BREAKING UP OF THIS COUNTRY,WE ARE BLESSED AMONG AFRICANS,WE KNOW HOW TO HANDLE OUR HARD CORE PROBLEMS,NO HARD TIME CAN BE MORE THAN THE TIME OF ABACHA AND IBB BUT NIGERIA SURVIVED THEM! WE WILL SURVIVE BOKO HARAM.LET’S SUPPORT OUR PRESIDENT ! LET US BE PATIENT WITH HIM.HE IS HUMAN.PATIENCE IS HIS WIFE AND PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE WE SHOULD POSSESS IT IF WE CAN!! AND NIGERIA IS SO LUKY TO HAVE GOODLUCK JONATHAN.THE NIGERIA PROBLEMS ARE VERY OVERWELMING!!.GOD WILL SAVE NIGERIA.LONG LIVE NIGERIA

  6. Cheap analyses – devoid of any rational argument and clear understanding of international politics, By the way, why do Nigerians always think the entire world is there plotting against it or that America is only interested in its oil? CIA analyses are not prophesies, but human analysis based on meticulous studies of any geo-political entity. One need not rely on any CIA apocalyptic propositions to know that all is not well with the Nigerian state. But whether that is a sufficient reasoning for the doom-days theory is another question? The whole threat about Jonathan’s candidacy come 2014 is uncalled for. He is a Nigerian and reserved all the rights to vote and be voted for – as long as his party affords him the political platform, and Nigeria would still remain the same. All the threat of northern secession add to nothing – by the way, which north? Nigerians should be more preoccupied on how to build a stable society – where all ethnic, nations and religion co-exist peacefully.

    • @ AYO AWA MY BROTHER YOU HAVE SAID IT ALL !! NO MORE NO LESS.LET THOSE WHO HAVE EARS HEAR THE TRUTH THAT NIGERIA WILL ALWAYS BE THE PILLAR OF BLACK AFRICA.LIKE J.K..AGGREY OF AFRICA SAID IN 1926 – ” LET AFRICANS REMAIN GOOD AFRICANS AND NOT TO BECOME POOR COPIES OF THE EUROPEANS.ONLY THE BEST ARE GOOD ENOUGH FOR AFRICA”. AS I WROTE IN THIS FORUM EARLIER ON ABOUT NIGERIA,WE HAVE BEEN IN EXISTENCE SINCE THE BIBLICAL DAYS (aCTS:13:1),YOU CAN CHECK YOUR BIBLE. NIGERIA MEANS NIGER AREA.RIVER NIGER HAS BEEN THERE FROM TIME IMMEMORIAL !! AND WE ARE PART OF THE BLACK RIVER – NIGER.WE ARE THE LARGEST BLACK POPULATION IN THE WORLD TODAY,WE ARE THE LEASER OF ECOWA COUNTRIES WHICH WERE THE SAME EMPIRE BEFORE THE ARRIVAL OF THE EUROPEANS,OUR EMPIRE THEN WAS SONGHAI UNDER SONNI ALLI,ASKIYA THE GREAT AND MANSA MUSA( please check your internet) AND NOW WE ARE BACK IN POWER AGAIN AS LEADER OF ECOWA COUNTRIES.SO CIA OR NO CIA GOD HAS ORDAINED NIGERIA AS LEADER OF BLACK AFRICA,NO FAKE ANALYSES CAN CHANGE THA !!.GOD BLESS NIGERIA,LONG LIVE NIGERIA !!

  7. Now the north dey fear in big way. They have started going places to places to preach their fake..unity and .one Nigeria. And they continue killing christians, southerners and burn their places of worship. Now, dem they fear of our almagamation. 2014 is the end of our fake marriage. We must surely split and let them continue with their born to rule mentality. They are all satan family and they can never ever stop their evil ways. South south should go with their oil period. The south want state police they no,south want National conference they no, south want federalism they no. But these animals brought us quota sytem and their millitery constitution and .no body oppose it. Even in NASS and house of reps, they are the majority. They always have evil plan against the south. South is already been caged. And we must get out of their cage. South must hold their destiny and future in their hands. We must part ways with the north. Their forefathers already said how the south should be treated, and thats what they are doing now.

  8. Like som1 said here, we can talk over Nigeria’s break-up rather than fight over it. Voting shld nt only be during elections but also to get pple’s opinion on some vital issue like this. Nigeria is made up of four countries ( the north, east, west and south) and it’s affecting us badly! Our colonial masters out of greed made Nigeria an entity. Whether we like it or not, boko haram ‘ll continue as long as a northern is not in power. My pple let’s talk/vote peacefully over our break-up

  9. Some of what de writer said are true but i will surely disagree with him on his coment about both America n fomer soviet union. His perspective about both are seriously wrong. On de issue of America going into any country of de world that threaten there investment has now being laid to rest cos American has learnt a great lesson recently that not de amount of ur amunition that win de war but de “will” of de people. Case study (Iraq n Afganhnistan) . My point is this, if nigeria should disintergrate n in de process American intrest is threaten in de Niger Delta, take or leave it, America will do “nothing in Nigeria. De era of which powerful countries can do n undo anything they feel to smaller countries is over. No country how ever powerful can tell how nigerians or Niger Delta should live their lives not even America. Two, onde issue of former Soviet Union, de writer was too pro America in his assesment. We know that both super power (America n Soviet Union) were both fighting war of ideology then. They were both trying to tell de rest of de world that there way of life is de best(socialism n capitalism). De writer said Regan was able to laid some condition for de then Soviet Union under which negotiation will be held n i will say that was historiacal fallacy cos when negotiation staryted btw de two countries there was nothing like that. De two countries realised that neighter of them could countinue with de speed of de arm race. As a result of this they both agreed to strike a deal whereby ano understanding btw de two countries was reached “without any conditions from de eighter side. How could de writer have thought that America would have been able to give Soviet condition is beyond believe. Don’t forget that these two countries are equaly grate n powerful. So pls in case of another time try n get ur fact right before u start making references.

  10. With what is happening in Nigeria today, we must be very careful with the CIA prediction about Nigeria breakup. Remember, this same CIA predicted the first and second world wars; the breakup of former Soviet Union; Sudan, etc, most of their predictions came to pass.

  11. One thing is certain, BH has successfully triggered the division of this country and it is going to be extremely difficult to put it together.

  12. yusuff, are you aware that crisis management has its degree of tolerance? However, the shedding of the blood of the innocent cannot be easily overlooked even by GOD.

  13. The amalgamation treaties which brought nigeria into being is what defines/desolves nigeria’s corporate existence. The constitution is an internal document, for internal issues, weaker than the treaties. Unless through this current constitution amendment we produce a people-constitution, beyond 2014 no region can be forced to belong. This is the reason for our current constitution amendment effort.

  14. I read that shuluwa interview,yes it was shocking.but I retained some critical information from it.
    1.For northern leaders,”BIAFRA IS NOT YET DEAD”.It’s alive and living but in a vegetative state.Well Ojukwu once said”biafra is not dead as far as it’s alive in the heart of igboman”but he also said”I fear they wont get the leader needed to realise it”
    Shuluwa’s comment is a testimony of the reason why northerner never want an igboman to get to presidency.cos the collosale power of the president can give him also a morale leadership for ndigbo as well.unity of ndigbo will be achieved as biafra will be question of time.unity of ndigbo is the greatest fear of the north.
    Shuluwa also revealed how they wish that southsouth will be hostile to biafra project hence when arewa delegate came recently to meet ohaneeze in enugu,the final statement was”If u break an object,it might not end up in two or three piece”
    For them,nigeria in general is farce with expiry date.

  15. Land Of Possibilities on

    In my own observation, Shuluwa, should understand that Niger Delta is all the oil producing states he shouldn’t worry if we break up. we gonna live peacefully so the most important thing now is our break up, because I’m sure with true federalism we gonna live like brother’s and sister s instead of living in this force marriage called Nigeria.

  16. I must commend the writer on this piece, though he started out fine, he obviously got many facts wrong.
    1. If nigeria disintegrates, the niger delta may surpass the south east in wealth but never in population.
    2. It would be so hard to separate delta and rivers states from south east. This obviously would make some niger deltan to look for a safer haven and their kit and kin
    3. You wil have many more countries from the north than the south. So the shuwa man would be rily disapointed to know that a bachama man of adamawa would not tolerate an hausa in adamawa but prefers the yoruba neighbour. This is a practical experience. Shuwa knows the tale of tiv and idoma better than me.
    4. He obviously do not understand that the clause of amalgamation is not same as that of independence. It may help any group, but seccession can only hapen on agreed disintegration. The biafra experience is a better example
    finally, political power in nigeria does not rest on the tribe or region of the president, but the region that calls the shots. The yorubas, igbos and niger deltans are fixing their homes, the northerners are busy asking for presidency. By the time they get it, they would rule only their cattles cos the rest of nigerians would be back to their base.

  17. CIA’s prediction on Nigeria breake up must surely come to pass in juses mighty name i pray amen. Its obvious we have nothing in common with Northeners. We are christains and they are moslems. they call us infidles who can never rule them. We preach justice, equity and fairness but they preach injustice, inequity and unfairness. They kill our people on daily basics and burn our places of worship. they vow never to see an igbo man become the president of this failed state called Nigeria and yet they want us to be one Nigeria with them. how funny???. They shared the Niger/Delta oil wells among their Emirs and left the indigenious people with poverty. To be very honest We are too difference to be in one country honestly. Nigeria would have been divided long time ago should oil located in the Northern region. Any South Easterner who still believe in one Nigeria is INSANE AND DELUDED.

    • @ Swedbase thank you my brother and I do agree with you. My pain is that, south do love northerners in so many ways, but the north dont give any damn to love south. They see south as bunch of infidels and un beleivers. Even they brain wash Awolowo and deceived him. The same thing they did to MKO. North beleived that, they owe Nigeria and their born to rule mentality. They see other tribes as slaves and second class citizens to them. All their intentions is to Islamize the country. They always have evil plans against the south. Now, they are the majority in NASS and house of Reps. They have already position them selfs every where to go against any thing south says. Before when Army was incharge what ever any southerners say that, they dont like, they will surely assasinate the person. They dont want any southerner to go against their wish. South want states police, federalism etc, but the north says no to all the south request. But, they brought us quota, zoning system etc, and no body against them. Seperation is the only solution and beside this no way. We go back and re-read what Amodu bello said. The killing of southerners is just to much to bear. They have been killing southerners for many decades. The north can never ever stop their evil ways. They are all satans family. 2014 is the end of our fake marriage.

  18. IT IS SAID THAT BEFORE ABRAHAM JESUS WAS!! BEFORE THE BRITISH ALMAGAMATION OF NIGERIA,NICERIA WAS AND IT IS STILL GOING TO CONTINUE TO BE NIGERIA (NIGER AREA).BEFORE THE EUROPEANS CAME TO AFRICA ,NIGERIA WAS A PART OF A VAST EMPIRE CALLED SOGHAI EMPIRE UNDER SONNI ALLI,THEN UNDER ASIKYA THE GREAT ,AND THEN UNDER MANSA MUSA.THE SONGHAI EMPIRE COMPRISED MOSTLY OF THE PRESENT DAY ECOWA COUNTRIES.DURING THE BIBLICAL DAYS ,NIGERIA EXISTED .PLEASE CHECK YOUR ENGLISH BIBLE OR ANY BIBLE FOR THAT MATTER IN ACTS OF THE APOSTLES CHAPTER 13 VERSE 1 (ACTS:13:1)SIMEON WAS ONE OF THE EARLIER NIGERIAN.HE WAS CALLED NIGER BECAUSE HE CAME FROM THE NIGER AREA = NIGERIA.RIVER NIGER MEANS BLACK RIVER.NIGER IS THE SECOND LARGEST RIVER IN AFRICA AFTER RIVER NILE.NIGER IS NOT IN EUROPE .SO WHAT GOD HAS PUT TOGETHER LET NO MAN PUT ASUNDER !!.GOD LOVES NIGERIA!.NO MATTER WHAT NIGERIA WILL CONTINUE TO BE THE LEADER OF AFRICA AS IT WAS FROM THE BEGINING.RIGHT NOW WE ARE BACK IN OUR OLD EMPIRE POSITION,WE ARE THE LEADER OF ECOWA.WE ARE BLESSED,WE ARE THE LOST RACE IN THE BIBLE.ANYBODY WISHING NIGERIA BREAK UP IS FIGHTING AGAINST GOD. CIA OR NO CIA NIGERIA WILL CONTINUE TO EXIST.LONG LIVE NIGERIA.

  19. The CIA nor the American government NEVER predicted the disintegration of Nigeria in 2015. A university thesis done by a student is the bases of this misinformation of the gullible and ignorant.

  20. TO BE CANDID, I FIND IT VERY DIFFICULT TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS DISCUSSION. THE REASON IS THE PREVALENCE OF COSMETIC CONSCIOUSNESS, MENTALITY AND UTTERANCES OF NIGERIANS ON THE ISSUE OF UNITY AND DISINTEGRATION. I WANT TO ASK ALL THE COMMENTATORS IN THIS FORUM AND ALL NIGERIANS TO GO INTO THEIR CONSCIENCES AND CHECK WHETHER POLITICS, ECONOMIC POLICIES AND THE CONSTITUTION OF NIGERIA ARE BASED ON EQUITY, JUSTICE AND FARE- PLAY . ANSWER THIS QUESTION WITH YOUR GOD GIVEN CONSCIENCE. LET ME GIVE THE STATEMENT THAT IS FAR GREATER THAN PROPHESY. IF THE ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION IS YES, THEN NIGERIA WILL REMAIN UNITED AFTER 2014. BUT IF THE ANSWER IS NO, THEN NIGERIA WILL DISINTEGRATE AFTER 2014. GO AND WRITE IT ON THE WALL! THE ONLY THING THAT CAN KEEP NIGERIA TOGETHER AFTER 2014 IS THE FOUNDATION THAT IS LAID ON JUSTICE, EQUITY AND FARE-PLAY.

  21. Nigeria glorious future not in doubt….let all who believe that the only way forward is disintegration remember that even Nigeria breaks into 100 tiny countries, the present sorry state of situations would still exist….what we need is good leadership and inclusive governance…..

  22. It is sheer blunder and highly nonsensical for anybody to call for de seperation of this great entity call Nigeria. It is those who did not fight the civil war that will pray for war and disintegration of this country. Let us remember dat no tribe has de monopoly of violence. For any man asking for divorce from de wife or vice-versa having had children, should prepare to pay de price of seperation. Instead of joining hands to fight our common enemy, we are busy antagonising ourselves and creating enimity. Whatever was said by de United States will not hold water if we come together to stand as one. The strenght of any nation is vested on de moral fibre of it’s individual members. The problems being faced by some of our african countries today should serve as a pointer to those trying to forment trouble that they may not be alive to see the end of it. It is better we all sit down and count de cost b4 embarking on any action so that de generation yet unborn will still have a nation they can call their own.

  23. Anybody thought that this country should remain one is deceiving himself, it is dumb man’s dream. The northern oligarchy had destined how they should overide,marginalised the other tribes b4 the independent they claim the country belongs to them, just imagine what the selfish Ahmadu Bello said on Oct.12 1960. The new nation called Nigeria should be an estate of our grand father Othman Danfodio, We must ruthlessly prevent a change of power,We must use the minorities in the North as willing tools, And the South as conquered territories, And never allow their future. When will the Nigerian read meaning to the above statement. I am sorry for those who said Biafra is dead, Even the unborn children of Biafra it is on their heart, lets wait after the expiration of the unholy marriage on 2014 We will not listen to Abuja politician from the SE and SS.
