Biafra Agitation As A Result Of Nigerian Political Nature

written by The Intellects Mag November 15, 2017

Biafra Agitation As A Result Of Nigerian Political Nature

What we called Nigeria today was ab initio, before the coming of the of the colonial masters, three different entities of the Northern and Southern protectorate, with different cultural backgrounds, norms, values, politics and systems of governance. The three entities were: Igbo( here Known as Biafra), Hausa and Yoruba. During the leadership of Lord Frederick Lugard, the three different entities were amalgamated later on to form what we have now as Nigeria. After the independence, the three region were living in solidarity and discord at some length. In solidarity, because they are one country, in discord, because of fundamental differences. Some years after the independence, there was a civil war as a result of political quagmire, Igbos, led by Late col. Odumegwu Ojukwu wanted to stay on their own as they were before the coming of the white but the Northerners refused such ideology. After the great War Ibos (Biafrans) were still subjected to Nigeria as a nation. After then things are not going well politically. As the time went by things keep on getting worse, this led to the serious Agitation by a prestigious and energetic Prince Namdi Kalu, who stands as the voice of the people of Biafra. In this paper we are going to look at the condition of Nigerian Politics and to know how it affects the Igbos, which led to the aggressive Agitation for Biafra.

Biafra Agitation As A Result Of Nigerian Political Nature

An adage has it that: when a community is in state of confusion and quagmire that some use it as a means to survive. Another adage states that: one man’s food is another man’s poison. The political Nature of Nigeria is highly favorable to mainly politicians and indirect Politicians andvby indirect politicians I mean, those who are not politicians but they benefit from politicians. But for those at the grass roots level, it is terrible and unspeakable. Nigeria ontologically was blessed by God with many resources, which can help to keep us wealthy if it’s properly taken care of, but with lack of proper caretaking, it appears like Nigeria is as poor as a church mouse. The need for politics was for there to be a leader according to the mind of people, a leader, by the people, of the people and for the people.

A leader who will see the best in his people and give them the avenue and assistance to actualize it. Leaders who are meant to represent the people. But today, the reverse is the case, politics is now a game and the game politics is now a bugaboo. The game politics in Nigeria is, to the paraphrase of stoic, tantamount to “what is seen in animal ;that is, the strong must suppress the weak”, meaning ‘survival of the fittest’. What a farce? Politics is now a game for individual pockets and not for national wellbeing. The poor, young and children are no more considered in the administration. Few leaders are doing what is pleasing to the majority but majority of leaders are doing what is pleasing to the least number of people. Sometimes, what is going on in the political realm of Nigeria, places the people in ambiguity.

Look at the problem of recession, it’s ranging from misappropriation to lack of responsibility. Nigeria, before the discovery of oil, was based on agricultural exports, lime stone, salt etc. But when oil was discovered, everybody rushed into oil, which led to political attention and dependency being on oil alone. Now that many country are developing non fuel machines, the demand for fuel went down, and the political leaders, instead of trying to help to rediscover our original innocence by looking at other means of external exchange in-placement of oil, they were myopic and short sighted by their personal oil wells. Some are less concerned and nonchalant because they have many Nigerian money invested abroad and enough stolen funds in their personal names and accounts. This makes people to suffer, many youths are into criminal activities just for them to make a better living, which the government refused them. This sardonic and bedevilled situation led to the aggressive increase in kidnapping, highway attacks and many more. The flaw tedious and flaw gibbous attitude of Nigerian Politicians (or political Nature) led to the emergency of the Biafra Agitation.

Biafra Agitation As A Result Of Nigerian Political Nature

The motion for federal independent nation of Biafra by Igbos led by Prince Nnamdi Kalu was because, the Nigerian Politics and leadership modality is no more befitting for the Igbo’s-band there is also a long history of religious crises between the Igbo Christians and Hausa Muslims due to differences and incompatibility of belief and faith. Igbos held the argument that they are being maltreated in the Northern part and deprived certain privileges. This and many more is what led to the revolution, Igbos held the stand that since this is not our blood, tribe, and we have different cultures and values, let us stay as we were before the amalgamation. This motion was erroneous for the political leaders of Federal Republic of Nigeria and to water it down and muddle it up, many counter actions were taKen, like arresting the IPOB leader for some charges, which were later proved to be wrong. As things get worse in the country; the revolution increases.

Problems Resulting From The Biafra Agitation

There is a saying which has it that anything that comes up into existence must have fault and challenges. There are some faults or side effects of this agitation and also some challenges.

Many, especially myopic ones, have cast their interest in the Biafra Agitation by a means of IPOB, some who don’t have what to do for a living are no more interested in searching for something to do, some who have little to do, dropped them in the name of joining IPOB group… Sometimes you find out that those who pressure this issue are some people who have nothing doing. Some tenants followed their landlord in spending their whole day in the name of IPOB without knowing that at the end of the month, you must pay your house rent whether you work or not.

Another problem it carries is from the religious point of view. It is quite right that Prince Nnamdi Kalu made it open that he is not the god or King of Igbos but those following him did not follow the same interpretation, some people worship him(which may be against his will) but the point is that they worship him as god and King. Some Christians dropped their faith because of the condemnation that Prince Nnamdi Kalu laid against new testament of the Holy Bible and many other things. The force people use on Kalu they never used it in their belief in God. For some people Nnamdi Kalu’s is more important than their faith. They create more time to discuss Kalu but little or no time for God. This led one priest of God to say that ‘if the attention given to Kalu was given to God, salvation would have been sure’.

The Biafra Agitation is faced also by some challenges which started from the arrest and re-arresting of Nnamdi Kalu, this was a political means to water down the motion, some Igbo political leaders are not in support of Kalu’s modality. They see him as a deceiver, some religious heads are not happy with Kalu’ s modus operandum, they see him as a leviathan(pride) antichrist brain washer, do-gooder etc But the funny part of it is that people keep joining the movement.


Ranging from our discussion here, it stands that one of the root causes of Biafra Agitation is as a result of the bad conditions of Nigerian Politics. And the reason for this quest is for the Igbos to be independent. Though this idea in some extent good, but people should start working and start earning for a living.
God cannot be placed second in this quest, rather, God should be the chief pilot of this nation. The spirit of brotherhood must be achieved first before one nation of Biafra can be achieved. Spirit of Ujaama is needed, that is, brotherhood beyond state boundaries. If all these is not put into consideration. It will be that we are running away from an evil person and running towards evil spirits. It will make the nation of Biafra not possible, and if it manages to be possible, it will be a state of chaos, sadonism, brutality, chagrin and endemic war against each other. To get Biafra, let’s plan well because he who fails to plan, plans to fail.
