SV: USA Africa Dialogue Series - Re: Achuzia and Realuzation of Biafra

Eze-Cornelius Hamelberg the 1st of Njikoka,


A correspondent name for the Swedish deity, Thor, in Yoruba is not the issue here as every group of people in the world has the right to worship whatever God they wish.


A casket seller sees every living human being as a corpse just like those wishing the disintegration of Nigeria see differences between the Yoruba, Olodumare, and the Igbo, Chukwu. However, the DNA of the Yoruba and the Igbo, and in fact the entire population of Nigeria, is Negroid. That is why the Yoruba Bàbá-aláwo is just another name for  Ezemuo in Igbo. Recently, the Governor of Abia State between 1999 and 2007, Orji Uzor Kalu, attended to a court seating of his trial for looting the state's treasury of the sum of nearly 3 billion naira during his tenure. Mr. Kalu appeared in court dressed up like an Hausaman with a huge Turban on his head. Everyone, seeing him mistook him for Sultan of Sokoto. Not only that, when Justice Binta Nyanko granted Orji Uzor Kalu bail in July 2007, his bail conditions were fulfilled by two Northerners, General Ibrahim Babangida and Atiku Abubakar who signed his bail papers. No matter how much Nnamdi Kanu pretends, he has no Jewish DNA in him and the earlier this Albino stops seeing himself as a Caucasian Jew, the more he will stop having problems.


You asked, "Is it OK to legitimatise racism and tribalism in the name of this and that religion?" That question should be directed to your half brothers, the Caucasian, who since our encounter with them have used religion and racism to oppress and exploit the Black race. Must I remind you that it was Pope Nicholas the Fifth who in his Bull of 1450 quoted Leviticus 25 and Exodus 21 to justify the enslavement of the Black man. You are hereby also reminded that in 1492, Rodrigo Borgis became Pope Alexander VI. In his 1493 Papal Bull leading to the Treaty of Tordesillas between Spain and Portugal, black people were declared the property of those countries. In 1857, a US Pastor and a Doctor of Divinity, George D. Armstrong wrote a book titled Christian Doctrine of Slavery for a pro-slavery argument. Twenty-five years earlier, 1832, a US Professor of History, Metaphysics and Political Law at William & Mary College, Virginia, in his pro-slavery argument wrote a book titled, Slavery Ordained by God. The economic and political problems which Nigerians, and in fact, the entire Africa, are still battling with today could be traced to our enslavers now known as Global leaders. In view of the aforesaid, your question as to if it is OK to legitimatise racism in the name of this and that religion is grossly misdirected.  


Concerning your request on what I have to say on your belief that Biafra wants a divorce from Nigeria, I must confess that I have never been aware of any marriage between Nigeria and an entity called Biafra. The Igbo were born in Nigeria like all other ethnic groups in Nigeria and by birth we are all Nigerians by birth and not by interethnic marriage.


The Igbo have ancestral land area in Nigeria and if they for any reason want to confine themselves inside their ancestral geographical area in the present day Nigeria, I do not think anyone can stop them. That is the essence of Arewa Youths' call on all Igbo to leave the North within the same time that all the Hausa/Fulani in Igbo land (Southeast) should return to the North. Simplified, if Sierra Leoneans in Sweden, for certain reasons, are no longer pleased with  living in Sweden, the best solution for all Sierra Leoneans is to pack their bags and bagages and resettle in Sierra Leone. It can't be wise or logical to demand a referendum in Sweden for Sierra Leoneans to decide whether to exit Sweden or not. So far, I do not know why the Igbo want a sovereign state of Biafra out of Nigeria, and I do not know the geographical land area that is contained in their Biafra.

One error here! African traditional beliefs do not proselytize!  There is freedom to worship whatever pleases you and helps you without fear or favor!

It is the Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam that kill on behalf if their God and have a policy of my way or the highway!

Cheers.

Baba Kadiri,



Isn't Thor the Swedish version of Yoruba's Shango?

It's possible that some of the Italians are still swearing by Mars , but didn't Jesus say "swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King" ?

On the Yoruba (Oduduwa) - Igbo (Biafra ) axis it could be a showdown between Olodumare and Chukwu (assuming that there is a difference between them) If there is a difference and both of them are jealous, what happens then?

You are familiar with Ola Rotimi's "The Gods are not to blame" - so lets skip the argument about which God is responsible for the state that Nigeria is in or which God is stronger; it seems to me that if the Nigerian Gods are united at least on a national, if not a universal level, then the peoples of Nigeria could also be united under the One God and I guess that therein lies the strength in monotheism: you, Chidi and Obi all united under one God and I suppose that the good people of Zamfara would like to make a strong political plea for Allah subhanahu ta'ala as a unifying factor. As you yourself are aware, there's no way Nigerian Muslims (some 55% of the nation) is ever going to accept any other God or Gods (shirk). The Christians of course have issues with "qul huwa allahu ahad" even if you argue the merits of the Omnipotent's divine mathematics. The Jews of course have issues with al- Islam and with Jesus who Islam recognises as the Messiah of the Jews.

The question that we must examine and answer are :

1. Is it OK to legitimise racism and tribalism in the name of this and that religion?

2. Be honest now. What do you say about Biafra wanting a divorce from Nigeria? Surely they should not have to go to war to liberate themselves from an unhappy marriage?

It should be interesting to see how the Pro-Biafra people are going to react to whatever punishment is meted out to Nnamdi Kanu...

Baby Nnamdi Hamelberg,

May the Gods of Sweden, Odén and Tor, and the Goddess of Sweden, Freia, deliver Nigeria from those who preach that divided we, Nigerians, stand and united, we fall. Since Swedish Gods and her Goddess are more powerful than Hebrew and Arabic Gods, I am sure that They will grant the prayer of Nigerians to remain united as brothers and sisters regardless of devilish efforts of Lucifers.

17.30 -Stockholm, Midsummer's Day...

Mazi Chidi,


In plain prose : I agree with you completely.

What's wrong with our man? There he goes, violating the terms of his release, his bail conditions such as

the prohibition against holding rallies, granting interviews or addressing a "crowd" of more than ten people whilst awaiting his trial. As if he is unaware of those bail conditions and maybe intoxicated and getting too big for his boots, a little giddy being so much in the limelight and loving every moment of the media's glare, he has inauspiciously proclaimed himself militant "Messiah of Biafra" - about which I say, well, there are many false prophets and false messiahs - not only of Israel - and in Rabbi Kanu's case it's maybe a prefiguration of his trial, eventual long prison sentence or crucifixion/ execution and martyrdom. All that remains is his last supper with his twelve disciples - after humbly washing their feet. Meanwhile - while he's still a free man let him continue to enjoy prancing around like a pop star, wearing his special colourful robes and Ray Charles sunglasses - delivering lengthy speeches to large crowds - in English too, so that the rest of the world that doesn't speak Igbo can hear and understand him, he has been granting interviews - to al-Jazeera among others and - without any military training or experience is still talking like a great military general like Julius Caesar or soon to be guerilla leader like Che Guevara.

As a result of all of the above, we can see plainly see that his conviction is a foregone conclusion - what we don't yet know is the severity of the sentence that he is going to receive in order to set a statutory example to those who advocate taking up arms against the Federal Government for any reason whatsoever.

What do the Igbo elders say ?

Among the venerable Igbo elders I have in mind stalwarts like stiff upper lip Emeka Anyaoku and in my time in Nigeria, Shagari's second-in-command Alex Ekwueme. On the religious-ethical front, on the world stage we have a moral authority like Cardinal Francis Arinze who we should imagine would much prefer a non-violent revolutionary Brother Nnamdi Kanu walking in the footsteps of his Jewish Brother Jesus and reflecting the values of the Sermon on the Mount, instead of spitting fire and threatening his neighbours with death, as if he doesn't know that Igbos live all over the federation and are liable to tit-for-tat eye for eye retaliation - starting with pogroms in the North as has happened before.

I should like to add Biko Agozino to the honourable category of "Igbo elders" even though he may be too young for that. So what say ye if he is included in the category "Junior Igbo elder " - like a junior senator ? ( When I was eighteen I thought that I was certainly a grown up)

Ten years later , the scars of war were still visible in Aba, Umuahia and Owerri, according to other's testimonies because I myself don't know what those places looked like before the war and I guess that Igbos under the age of fifty can't remember either

We (Igbo, Yoruba, Hausa, Fulani Kalabari alike, including Alhaji Mujahid Asari-Dokubo) have a moral obligation to condemn Kanu's outrageous - and dangerous beating of war drums when we should be talking peaceably about the best way way to go forward and about a referendum to begin with...

All of the above, notwithstanding, it may be a just a blip, but Nnamdi Kanu's place in history is still assured. He has and is still fulfilling his function: amplifying the Biafra cause which in my view, especially in the world outside of Nigeria, I believe many people would support, not least of all here in Sweden , if it is all approached peacefully - starting with a referendum. (I know that an irate Baba Nnamdi Kadiri Esq probably won't hesitate in taking me to task by asking me "How do you know that "many people in Sweden" would support the Biafra cause, ? Did you conduct a referendum whereby you verified their commitment? )

Well, first of all, believe it or not there are the questions that we have to answer in the grave and not before. On the Day of Judgement Nnamdi will probably be asked about his accomplishments on earth that should merit his being granted a seat near the throne of Majesty. At that point, everyone of us will have to speak for him and herself not just on behalf of making America Nigeria/ Biafra etc. "great again". I think that on the day of that trial most of us, including the Nigerian judges will be pleading for mercy -

Na so a see am o!

Yours sin-cerely,

Cornelius

We Sweden

Mazi Cornelius,
I do not waste my time with characters like Kanu. You at least know me and several other Igbos, now the question is; does it look like Kanu represents us?

The Kanu hate speeches is being used as a blackmail tool. Kanu tongue-lashes everyone, including those you want to call him to order. All the ethnic nationalities in Nigeria however have their own Kanu.
