 Nigeria At 60: Biafraland on Total Lockdown Compliance

Late King Sunny Okosun, an Edo born music genius in 1979 released an album titled: “Papas Land” and in the track was a lyric that stated: “We want to know who owns the land." Now, we know who owns the land. Biafraland is owned by Biafrans. Yes, we own the land and we must firmly determine what happens in our land without anybody dictating to us. 

The total compliance of a "Sit-At-Home" as ordered by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is enough evidence that Biafrans indeed own the land. The Nigerian government does not own Biafraland, the Abuja based Fulani controlled politicians are not the owners of our land but we, the people. Before the emergence of IPOB, it was as if the South-East Governors own the land, they controlled and with  brazen impunity, dictated what happened. 

The one hundred percent (100%) compliance of the people to the Sit-At-Home order, was not to celebrate Nigeria 60th Independence Anniversary of 1st October but an evidence of the people’s complete rejection of Nigeria and all the inherent subjugations and controls. Nigeria is a dysfunctional and dilapidated piece of project that does not need repairs by any human. 

Nigeria can be best described as anything which impairs the happiness of a being or deprives a being of any good; anything which causes suffering of any kind to sentient beings, injury, mischief, harm, opposed to good, an inconsequential nation, a powerful evil jinnee and a monstrous giant of Africa. So, why celebrate? Meanwhile, what has Nigeria as a country offered to her citizens if not misery and subjugation, killing, terrorism, penury and bloodshed. 

Just as Father Akam said: “Average Nigerian child has no future. His basic education is not guaranteed. If he pulls through and writes his Joint Admission Matriculation Board Examination (JAMB), there is no admission. If he gets an admission, strikes (industrial actions) will frustrate his study calendar. If he writes his finals, it takes years to compute his results and clear him for National Youth Service (NYSC). If he serves and needs a job, someone with political connections to help out will either insist on initiating him into an occult group, extorting money from him or taking sexual advantage of him. At his work, he is owed; if he is paid in arrears, he faces bank protocols and poor internet services to withdraw. If he succeeds, he is robbed outside." And they are proud to say that they are celebrating 60 years of impunity. 

Ultimately, Nigeria has fully degenerated into the Hobbesian State of Nature where life is short, nasty and brutish, a full blown despotic state. See Nigeria and weep", he added. Nigeria’s system is a dream-killing, infuriating machine which has killed our highways and byways, it has rendered millions of people useless, making most talented people in Nigeria to waste away. 

It has turned our hospitals into concentration camps where death is buy — one — get — one — free endeavour, the life of an average Nigerian is entrapped in misery. She is everywhere unsafe. Nigeria has disintegrated to a point where basic conditions and responsibilities of a sovereign government no longer function properly. So, why would people celebrate? What are they celebrating?

However, IPOB has decided to take control of their land and that was exactly what they did on Thursday 1st October, 2020. Recall a statement made by Bill Clinton, former USA President when he said: "The people have spoken. It is just going to take a little time to figure out exactly what they said."

 The "Sit-At-Home" order issued by IPOB leadership has proved and equally given a clear evidence/signal to the whole world that people are tired of the amalgamation charade called Nigeria and it is a clear message to her politicians too that people who own the land have emerged to take control. It is also a clear message to all those who care to listen that Biafra has come to stay. The total lockdown  exercise through the Sit-At-Home, should be a lesson both to the global community and to Nigerian politicians that it is no more as usual.
