  • Road not worthy to take
  • By Nwafor Sunday
    Permit me fellow compatriots to say my mind.
    Permit me also to tell you the bitter truth that
    will save us all. The road which we seek to take
    is not worthy to be taken. Going by the words of
    the former president, Dr. Goodluck Ebele
    Jonathan “Nobody’s ambition is worth the blood
    of any Nigerian,” “I promised the country free
    and fair elections. I have kept my word.” On the
    social media, I deduced via comments of Biafran
    youths that if the federal government insist of
    not splitting Nigeria; War will erupt.
    However, borrowing Jonathans succulent words
    I beg for a pause in our actions and recommend
    a sit at home rethink for all Biafrans. I did mine
    and came out with an undiluted and unequivocal
    premise that reads thus, ‘Nigeria’s divide
    tantamount to war’.
    I guess you don’t expect me to tell you
    everything. But you should know that ‘Igbo
    enwe eze’ and Igbo Afuro onwefa n’ anya’. In
    transcription it means that ‘Igbo do not have a
    king and perhaps do not love themselves.
    Remember this antithesis ‘ United we stand,
    divided we fall’. If Biafra eventually exists which
    state among the south east will produce the first
    president? That undoubtedly will bring another
    higgledy-piggledy amongst us. Igbo are known
    to be intelligent, hardworking, sensible and
    makers of right decisions. What is holding us
    back in making a wise decision in this one? This
    is what I don’t understand.
    The northern and southern amalgamation in
    1914 stated clearly our firm decision to stay as
    one. Why do you want us to divide Nigeria,
    despite Ojukwu’s failed struggle to achieve
    biafran nation in 1967? In our dialect we say
    ‘Abusi gba otule, omulu ako’ which literally
    means that buttock gets wisdom when ant
    stings it.
    Have you not watched our civil war
    documentary? The massacre, killings, sufferings,
    famine, blood flow, displacement of children and
    deaths, these are passengers of war. Which
    nation do you think will sponsor and support us
    if we undress war? History tells me that Ojukwu
    lost because he had no supporter, no sponsor
    and no food. But at that the aftermath reads no
    victor, no vanquish.
    I don’t know my grandfather because of war. He
    was killed in the battle field alongside my two
    uncles. I don’t wish same to these new born
    babies. We should stop beating the war drum!
    War has never been in our favor and I doubt if it
    will ever be.
    Moreover, the senator representing Bayelsa East
    constituency, Sen Ben Murray Bruce, while
    trailing down the causes of Biafran war spit the
    adverse effect of the war on people. According
    to him “Yes a young generation of people who
    have never seen bloodshed, people being killed,
    amputated and families being divided. “ Surely
    they will welcome war but what have we done
    as a nation to educate them about the
    destruction of war ‘absolutely nothing”, he said.
    Though we cry and weep for marginalization, but
    God has kept us going. The threat we received
    from the Northern Youths Coalition Forum,
    (NCY), has been doused by the acting president.
    My candid advice to ‘umunnem’ is that we
    should trade with caution. Abiding on the true
    constitutional processes will make us achieve a
    great nation. Federal government on their part
    should look inward to the plights of Biafrans and
    grant their legitimate request so that together
    we will make Nigeria proud.
    Please let Biafra not be like Robert Frost in his
    poem bellow:
    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both
    And be one traveler, long I stood
    And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth;
    Then took the other, as just as fair,
    And having perhaps the better claim
    Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
    Though as for that the passing there
    Had worn them really about the same,
    And both that morning equally lay
    In leaves no step had trodden black.
    Oh, I kept the first for another day!
    Yet knowing how way leads on to way
    I doubted if I should ever come back.
    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.
    Robert Frost
