March 21 2023 | The Biafra Restoration Voice

One unique thing about my people the Igbos is our love for our guests. We treat strangers or foreigners in our land sometimes better than our own flesh and blood. We are ready to fight our brothers and sisters while defending a foreigner whose right is being denied or abused. 

Many people who are championing the xenophobic attack against ndi Igbo in Lagos and other parts of Nigeria have never lived in Igbo land.

The culture of loving our guests and foreigners living in our land was handed over to us by our ancestors who lived thousands of years and worship the Almighty creator Chukwu Okike before the European gentiles brought their Christianity to our people. 

I was shocked to realise that the culture of treating strangers with care and love was part of the commandments of Elohim, when I came across it in the Bible as a child.  Let us see Exodus 22:21

21.Thou shalt neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.  

22.If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry;  

23.And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.

The above verses are part of the revered Igbo traditional culture known as "Odinani." The White man borrowed that term from us and called it ordinance. This is what singles us out as a Holy people unto our creator. Your envy and hatred cannot change who we are. We love foreigners in our land.

After the civil war, the whole money we kept in the bank was confiscated and we were given £20 pounds each under the supervision of Chief Obafemi Awolowo the then Nigeria finance Minister. The rest of our money in the bank was shared by politicians of other regions as spoils of war. 

Awolowo was generous, he gave his own share of the money as grants to his kinsmen which they used to buy shares in John Holts, Lennards, Bata, UAC, and others foreign companies in Nigeria then. 

Every time there is religious crisis in the northern Nigeria the business of ndi Igbo will be targeted by the indigenes masquerading as Almajiri, and our shops looted. 

Now apart from few Yorubas, Hausa/Fulani political elites, is average Igbo man the poorest in Nigeria today.  

The Igbo man is what he is not because of what he has, but because of his ability to work fearlessly and tirelessly to achieve his goals.

The recent general election has unveiled the demon hovering over us all as one Nigeria. We cannot be one with people who are envious of our achievements.

We have to go separate ways through a plebiscite or referendum and woe betide anyone that will try to thwart our common wish to leave this British business centre.
