(My Opinion)

21st July 2015 Time: 1:44PM

The subject of Biafra has been discussed very often both in the social media, electronic and print media. It has come on board again especially with the Radio Biafra and the controversy trailing its scrambling of the channel. It has heated so much debate especially on social media. To some, the proponents of Biafra are divisive. While some are for, others are against: It is in the light of this therefore, I wish to chip in my input; and let me state clearly that this is purely my opinion. Whatever I say here does not in any way represent Biafra, Middle Belt or any other place but purely my opinion. The Nigerian civil war which was popularly known as “Biafran War” was a painful experience in the life of a country and an entity called “NIGERIA”. Be that as it may, what has happened has happened? Nigeria has since moved on: So, what is the fuss about Biafra? Whoever said that Nigeria would collapse should Biafra go? Nigeria will and can still remain a great entity even if Biafra gained her independence!

As for those vehemently against the creation of Biafra, you may have yr reasons just like they have theirs. I am not a Biafran, I am a Nigerian, from the Middle Belt, but I dare say, if the Biafrans want to go, why not let them be?

One thing I admire about the Biafrans is that, despite everything, they are not discouraged, they still press on. While others thought, with the death of Ojukwu, Biafra would go down with him, but NO! Biafra is coming more stronger than ever! It tells you that you can’t kill an ideology. Just like Boko Haram is an ideology. I admire Biafrans because over forty years they keep drumming it in their children the dream of their fathers, forefathers. Let me ask this simple question, If the Biafran dream had not died over four decades ago, what makes you think it will die now? What makes you think it is stoppable? It is time for Nigerian and Nigerians to wake up to reality. The truth is, you may have bunch of keys but its only one  that may open the door. Same thing goes where you would have to press buttons to execute an operation or action. Once the Biafrans press the right button, nothing can stop them!

This should be a wakeup call to the Middle Belt Region! It is high time we start drumming into our children that we are not northerners but Middle Belters. I live in the South, but once I meet people for the first time and they ask me, I always tell them I am from the Middle Belt and they understand. Let’s drum it in the ears of our children, we are not from the north but from the Middle Belt, let’s keep on pressing our demands until the government of Nigeria succumbs to our demands. I cannot close this conversation without addressing one key issue, and that is ‘Granting amnesty to Boko Haram. My view will definitely differ from many here. If the federal government has the nerves to discourse amnesty to Boko Haram members, to negotiate with them, I don’t think it is out of place to negotiate with Biafrans or any part of the country that wants to secede.

On a final note, my word to Biafrans is, never relent on your efforts but do it the right way; same goes to the Middle Belt.

Happy New Year 2020!

    In the simplest way, research paper thesis can be explained as a type of academic writing or custom writing which is more theoretical in nature. In an expository essay, the writer explains or defines a topic, using facts, statistics, and examples. But all philosophical essays can not be written in multidimensions or via SDGs. Critical essay: These are mostly used in the college, so make sure you include the academic voice while writing.

    The samples are normally accompanied with instructions so that the students are able to note the key areas that need to be carefully considered when writing an academic essay paper.
