Every nation of the world has a priority of building and leaving a better future for the coming generation. They work hard to build a nation that the coming generations will be proud of.

There's this Ìgbo adage that says "That the prayer of every father is to have a child that will be greater than him". But can we apply this to Nigeria as a state?

"The foundation of any establishment or project defines the purpose of the founder".

Nigeria started as a British enterprise in 1879 (British Royal Niger Company) by George Goldie Taubman. The name Nigeria was founded by Fredrick Lugard, a British mercenary and a colonial administrator in 1914 (as suggested by his girlfriend, Flora Shaw) with the merging of the so-called 'Northern and Southern protectorate', to form its territorial shape, without the consent of the Indigenous People, the owners of the land. 

And this has been the number one problem in Nigeria. Right from the first census the British colonial government conducted in the territory called Nigeria today (in 1866), they manipulated the result to suit their purpose of interest. To date, the British government has passed on the 'manipulative act' to their puppets in power, the view and opinions of the majority of the masses doesn't count in Nigeria.

Still on the British Manipulative Act; 

The British government knows very well that forcing three different nations together will never work, Lugard admitted this by saying 

"That the North and South are like oil and water that can never mix"

Yet he went on to amalgamate us. 

We can't proceed without referring to what the so-called Nigeria founding fathers said about Nigeria's unity; 

(1)Abubakar Tafawa Balewa: 

“The Southern people who are swamping into this region daily in such large numbers are intruders; we don’t want them and they are not welcome here in the North. Since 1914, the British Government has been trying to make Nigeria into one country. But the people are different in every way, including religion, custom, language and aspirations, we in the North take it that Nigeria's unity is only a British intention for the country they created.

It Is Not For Us"

(2). Obafemi Awolowo: “Nigeria is only a geographical expression to which life was given by the diabolical amalgamation of 1914, that amalgamation will EVER remain the most painful injury the British Government inflicted on Southern Nigeria.”

(3)Ahmadu Bello: 

“The new nation called Nigeria should be an estate from our great grandfather, Othman Dan Fodio. We must ruthlessly prevent a change of power. We must use the minorities in the North as willing tools, and the South as conquered territories and never allow them to have control of their future". From the 1945 Igbo massacre in Jos, till 1966, Ndi Igbo remained the target. 

The British manipulated and instigated some military officers including Kaduna Nzeogwu to carry out a coup d'etat, which was lately termed the 'Igbo Coup' by the BBC.  There was a serious drum and signs of war written all over Nigeria. A meeting was organized in Accra Ghana, where both parties of The Nigeria federal government headed by  Jack Yakubu Gowon and the delegates of the Eastern region led by Colonel Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu agreed not to use Force to avert the war. But to negotiate restructuring into regionalism, both parties signed an agreement of a devolution of power.

It was this same Britain that manipulated Jack Yakubu Gowon to not implement an agreement that was already signed. It was the refusal from Jack Gowon that made Ojukwu declare a separate state of Biafra to slow down the raging massacre of Igbos scattered all over Nigeria. 

The Nigerian government declared genocidal war on Biafra, a genocide that claimed the lives of over 3.5 million Biafrans, especially women and children. Biafra territory was under total air, land and sea blockade for three years. They used the weapon of starvation against Biafra. A genocide that was called the Nigeria/Biafra Civil War in 1967-70.

To date, Nigeria has remained a failed state, eaten by corruption, tribalism and the worst leadership in the history of mankind. A contraption where criminals with questionable characters are imposed on the masses, honoured and given leadership positions.

Everyone is doing as if nothing is happening, without considering the fate of our future generations. The masses are in serious pain, no electricity, no good roads, no standard health care, no quality education, no jobs, insecurity fueled by state actors, oppression and repression of the masses.

What is the hope of our future generations? This is what IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu are fighting for, a better future for everyone, a state where every citizen will be equal in the eyes of the law, a sane society where accountability will be the order of the day, a society of true democracy where imperialism has no place. 

Swallow your envy and jealousy, and support Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB for the total dissolution of Nigeria, for the sake of our future generations. Self-determination is the only way out.  As Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will always say;  "What makes us human beings is the ability to reason, analyze information and ask critical questions".

Our brain is the highest natural resource, not oil or gas, it's time we make good use of it. We pray and hope that Africa will be free someday, as we embark on this mental enlightenment and revolution.
