#NkataUmuIbe is live.
Post Biafra healing and recovering our shared ties.
Philip Effiong Jnr.
@cfmemories @Coal_City Philip Effiong was Biafra's first vice president and the second president after Col. Ojukwu fled to Ivory Coast. He announced Biafra's surrender to Nigeria. He was head of state for 4 days.
@cfmemories @Coal_City We Nigerians used to be our brothers keepers. Our grandparents could speak several Nigerian languages.
@cfmemories @Coal_City Did colonialists play a role in tensions that developed. What we know today as Sabongari in places like Kano, were pre-colonial structures that let indigenous people make allowance for settlers and they existed all over West Africa.
@cfmemories @Coal_City Think of 1929 when women came together as Nigerians for one of the largest riots ever, the Aba women's riot. They were United for a common goal. Today would we be able to muster that level of unity for a common problem. What happened from 1929 till now.
@cfmemories @Coal_City What role does our Pan African ism play in all this. HAs African countries been divided and conquered mentally that we are fighting in isolation.
@cfmemories @Coal_City Dear Nigerians, as we make enemies of ourselves, we forget who our enemies are. Practical education will eliminate the mindset that makes us see our leaders as demigods. They tell us to go to war and we march to our deaths.
@cfmemories @Coal_City Even today as we witness various rifes and ills, boko haram, fulani herdsmen, kidnappings we still speak with different tounges as though it wasn't there before. Remember and beware of those who use the rhetoric of violence to achieve their objectives.
@cfmemories @Coal_City Our greatest enemy is not within us or outside our borders our enemy is our isolation from ourselves.
