Following my last admission of ignorance about this, I looked up Osondu Foundation mission statement to discover to my utter dismay that it, too, is pursuing a one-Nigeria solution for Ndigbo (although its characterization of the events that led to the Biafran War is quite on the mark). It is no wonder, then, that Dr. Okenwa Nwosu has thrown his support for this Foundation--a predictable move given that all along, "one-Nigerianization" has been Doctor Nwosu's agenda for Ndigbo-Biafrans. .....

Why should anybody expect any "surprises" from WIC, considering that WIC is continuing to pursue a one-Nigeria agenda? It is only instructive to the extent that the same fate awaits any organizations or philosophy that prescribe and or pursue a one-Nigeria agenda as the solution for the Igbo problem in Nigeria.

The only thing left is for me to once again take this opportunity to appeal to Osondu Foundation and all well-meaning Igbo and other Biafrans: there is no future for Ndigbo-Biafrans in one Nigeria. Our only hope and true destiny lie in Biafra and Biafra actualization. Therefore, Biafra actualization should be the priority and focus of Osondu Foundation and of all of us.

I read about economic development or assist prescribed for the deprived Ndigbo by Igbo one-Nigerianists. I do not know whether to cry or to laugh. Here we are, a distinct people who have one of the largest oil deposits in our own land. Everyday, we watch and keep quiet as the rest of Nigeria pumps the oil, and sells it, to the benefit of all other regions--other than Igboland-Biafraland, that is; and for the enrichment of other persons--other than Igbo-Biafrans. In fact, it is an open and deliberate policy of Nigeria that no benefit should accrue from the oil to Igbo-Biafrans and to the Igbo-Biafran territory even though the oil comes from our own land. So what do the learned Igbo Economic wizards do? First, they ignore this robbery of our wealth.

Second, they show no willingness or inclination to go up to, and challenge, their beloved Nigeria in order to extract even a mere paltry share of our own oil for our own economic development. Next, they want to present us with this and that petty plan. What do you call this? Do you know what an economic bonanza it would be for us if we only received just one percent of the revenues from the oil pumped in our own land? Yes, they remain deliberately blind to the real economic plan because they want to protect one-Nigeria while they advance useless plans that will hardly yield even a cent comparatively.

I can use the example of Education to make the same point. But why bother now? When people are willing to hide behind the (false) claim that the "mainstream Igbo" have decided to go with one-Nigeria, why bother to point out the obvious? Does Osondu Foundation really think that Igbo-Biafra posterity will want to continue to live as slaves with a conquered mentality--which is the sum total of the forced existence of Ndigbo in one-Nigeria--when it is clear to them that they own and supply the wealth of Nigeria, and that their Igbo-ness / Biafra-ness endows them with indomitable talents which not even oppressive Nigeria can suppress for ever? Think again!

We need to question one-Nigerianism. If we are honest, we should abandon it, not condemn ourselves further in it. We all should embrace our liberation through Biafra actualization. Until we do that, we are no different than WIC.
