Written Nnanna Ijomah - New York, New York, USA

The title of this article was inspired from the lyrics of a popular song titled "Only A Fool" made popular by Mighty Sparrow, the Trinidanian Calypso King of the World. If I may paraphrase some of the lyrics, it goes as follows. 'Why do I keep fooling myself when I know you love someone else. I pretend I don't see. I have to admit it that even though you hurt me so, I still can't forget it and if I were a man, I will let you go. It's no use trying to hang on to a love already gone. Hence only a fool breaks his own heart." The lyrics of this song appropriately epitomize the situation the Igbos have found themselves in present day Nigeria. As much as I am not advocating for secession, it is my considered opinion that it is high time the Igbos come to fully realize that it is a complete waste of time trying to please people who do not wish them well. Trying so hard to get other ethnic groups to hug and embrace them as an important component of Nigeria. Is it not ironic that 46 years since the end of the Nigerian civil war in which they lost, the Igbos are still striving to be fully readmitted into the country and accorded their place as citizens with all the benefits of full citizenship?

There are some who keep asking the question, what do the Igbos want? The answer is simple. They are not asking for too much. They only ask to be treated fairly and not like second class citizens in a country where they were at the forefront in its fight for Independence. They ask to be given a chance to aspire for the highest office of the land and not schemed out of contention each time the opportunity comes up. We all know what happened to Dr Ekwueme after he had worked so hard for the formation of the PDP. The truth whether we like to admit it or not is that there are some in this country who will do everything possible, including forming incompatible political alliances just to deny the Igbos that chance. No one has to take my word for it .

All I ask is that those who doubt my contention, go read the comments by no less a person than the present Emir of Kano, Alhaji Lamido Sanusi who in his speech during the 1999 Constitutional Conference, said as follows, " There is a new Igbo man who was not born in 1966 and neither knows or cares about Nzeogwu and Ojukwu. There are Igbo men on the street who were never Biafrans, but were born Nigerians but suffer because of the actions of earlier generations. They will soon decide it is better to fight their own war and may find honorable peace than to remain in this contemptible state of perpetuity." He went further to say, "The Northern bourgeoisie and the Yoruba bourgeoisie have exacted their pound of flesh from the Igbos." Then he warned that, "if this issue is not resolved immediately, no conference will solve Nigeria's problems."

Still on his speech, he went further to say the following, "The Igbos have more than paid for their foolishness in fighting a war. They have been defeated in war, rendered paupers by monetary fiat, their properties declared abandoned and confiscated, kept out of public sector appointments, deprived of public services and forced to remain in a Nigeria that denies them equity". Do I say more? This did not come from a highly placed Igbo man or a nobody like me. Those comments were made by a Northern and Muslim aristocrat. I don't know if the Emir still stands by those assertions but it is instructive to know that the noble prize laureate Wole Soyinka recently echoed similar sentiments. Yet despite those assertions, to most Nigerians if you are an Igbo man complaining of marginalization, you are a loser and hater. The Igbos have been described as a people who are always whining, lamenting and complaining. What they fail to acknowledge is that their whining is born out of good reason. All you need to do is to look at the federal appointments presently being made by this administration, the systemic purge of senior Igbo military and Police officers on trumped up charges of past political sympathies or association, or the on-going changes at the NNPC, Customs and Excise, and Immigration.

Some have criticized and belittled the legitimate concerns of the Niger Delta people yet look at the recent appointments in the NNPC. Their son Mr Kachikwu was demoted and reduced to a powerless inconsequential Board Chairman while retaining his equally insignificant position as Petroleum Minister of State. They have only one other representation in the board while 6 came from the North, including Abba Kyari, the President's chief of Staff who I guess does not have much on his plate as Chief of Staff to the President to take up an added responsibility at NNPC. Meanwhile most of the people who own oil blocks are not Niger Deltans but mostly from the North. Are they right in blowing up oil installations? No. But the fact remains that they have legitimate complaints that just cannot be dismissed by calling them terrorists. So when the Igbos voice a growing concern and despair over what they perceive as unequal treatment, we cannot just disregard their concerns and call them trouble makers.The fact is that in our hearts we know these complaints to be true with some validity. They've been true for a long time and those who deny its continued existence are not only denying reality but doing this country a great disservice. Some have experienced it in their personal lives. Some have practiced or felt it in their hearts. Some have thought of it and heard prejudice in their heads.

Just recently I read a dubious article by one Joe Igbokwe, an Igbo irredentist who pleaded with the Igbos to stop hating other groups as if the Igbos as an ethnic group is synonymous with hate. Ironically this is a man I understand was ostracized by his Nnewi community for activities bordering on criminality and have since then never ceased writing spurious articles against the Igbos so as to please his Lagos state employers. But he failed to acknowledge that the Igbos are the only ethnic group who can be found in the most remote village in every part of Nigeria supposedly living amongst the people they hate. Anyone who has visited the South East will tell you the Igbos are the most welcoming group to strangers in their midst. As I once mentioned in a previous article, 'those who have experienced the most, have suffered so much have no time to hate". Hate is more for those with a slightly guilty conscience and who by chewing an old hate in times of peace wish to demonstrate how great they were during the war. I submit that they Igbos having suffered so much alienation have ceased to hate while those who have continued to hate them do so out of guilty conscience. The Igbos resent the way they are treated and marginalized rather than hate. Mr Igbokwe may be right in saying the Igbos have found it difficult to forgive and forget what happened to them. But the question is how can you forget when no effort is being made by the offender to help you forget? So Mr Igbokwe should have directed his hate blame to the appropriate quarters. Be that as it may I join all like- minded folks in Igboland to desist from the habit of demonizing the President on social media but be free to criticize him objectively and without rancor or abuse when the need arises, while reminding them also as in the words of the late U.S President Ritchard Nixon who said as follows during his resignation speech, "Others may hate you. But those who hate you may not win until you hate them back and then you destroy yourself".

It is always good to give credit to whom credit is due and in so doing I give immense credit to the Obasanjo regime who gave the Igbos a fair shot in his administration. He did not only recognize their worth but accorded them fair representation in his cabinet and in his administration. I must also not fail to acknowledge the altruism as much as it is hardly mentioned of the Yoruba's who after the civil war preserved and returned all the Igbo properties in the South West to their rightful owners and hardly participated in the abandoned property game. Say what you may about Jonathan he too could be said not to be a nativist as it is with the present administration, which has failed woefully in addressing the systemic issues that have perpetuated the divisions in Nigeria. Nigeria's nascent democracy has never been about reasonable people coming together to engage in rational argument and develop polite win-win solutions. Rather it has been structured to accommodate the clashing and contesting of people with diverse and fractious interests and opinions. Take the issue of the implementation of the recommendations of the National Conference. While a section of the country is all for it as a panacea for the problems that ail the country, another section of the country is against it because it does not suit their interest or purposes. For them the Unitary system as practiced works just fine. Recently while on a one day working visit to commission a 75 kilometer road in Wanke, Bornu state, the President said his administration will deal decisively with any security threat in the country, obviously referring to the Niger Delta militants, Boko Haram and IPOB. I doubt if he also had the herdsmen in mind, since despite all their killings and massacres none has ever been arrested or their automatic weapons taken away since they are not Nigerians as the Sultan of Sokoto claimed. Instead of finding peaceful solutions to national problems, all we do is issue threats forgetting that a man who finds a fly perched on his scrotum does not use a sledgehammer to kill it, rather you handle it with care or you hurt yourself. As with any malady, the right treatment hinges on the correct diagnosis. You don't recommend better diet and exercise for a patient with a snake bite. We may just continue to ignore the full implementation of the National confab recommendations, peaceful resolution of our problems, understanding and appreciating of the concerns of all agitators and other well thought out solutions to our peril.

As I write this essay I expect the usual suspect groups to respond with vitriol, denial and abuses. But like drug addicts they continue to live in denial about their ailment which is their inability or reluctance to accept the truth about the Igbos, about Nigeria's inherent problems and about themselves. All the same in my vulnerability, I continue to see the place of the Igbos in Nigeria without the instagrammed filter of breezy certainties, perfectible moments or rosy future, hence it is time for them to look inwards. The Igbos are a people who have survived and prospered despite so many odds. For a people who were pauperized after the civil war by giving them only 20 pounds irrespective of how much money they had in their bank accounts before the war. For a race who were denied the chance to participate in the indigenization policy of the 70's or fully rehabilitated after the civil war. For a people who have been denied the chance to rule the country in its 56 year old history despite their contributions to the country, they have come a long way to become captains of industry, the foremost importers and traders in the country and are gradually turning the South East into the industrial and manufacturing hub of the country. They now manufacture cars, aircraft spare parts, pharmaceuticals etc, all without the assistance or input of the federal government. Educationally they continue to beat all comers in the West African School certificate exams as well as turning out the most college graduates in the country.

This is what a Yoruba man Mr Adesanya in a rare moment of introspection and self- awareness said about the Igbos on social media, "The Igbos are a very prestigious people. When I look at great Africans, I see the Igbos. In the Igbos I see the future of Africa, sadly they have been treated as rams in Nigeria. These people are very innovative, very creative, endowed with business ideas. They are kind of cocky (no tribe is perfect), but their togetherness is what bewilders me the most. The people are capable of boosting the economy of Nigeria if invested on, but sadly they have been slaughtered daily but they have the enduring spirit". That many Nigerians will not agree with these comments is expected and understandable, but that does not invalidate the comments. As one white mother here in the United States, Ms Rachel Garlinghouse who is raising 3 adopted black kids wrote in a recent article in reaction to recent demonstrations on 'black lives matter', she said and I quote, "when someone is hurting no matter how that hurt is expressed (usually through anger, anxiety, depression, or aversion) just ask yourself, when has it ever been helpful or uplifting to tell a person they shouldn't feel as they do"?. That's exactly what we do in Nigeria. We constantly question the right of the Igbos or the Niger Deltans to feel the way they do. We demonize them and say they should be content with what they have been given and stop asking for more. But we sometimes miss the point, for it is not always about what they want but how they have been treated. There is a saying, "ultimately people will forget what you said or what you did, but they will not forget how you made them feel".

In my opinion the Igbos should be able to do more for themselves by investing more in the South East instead of far flung places where they are disliked, vilified and not fully appreciated. Their company headquarters in the banking, shipping, manufacturing industries should be relocated to their home states, thereby providing more job opportunities for their teeming jobless youths. This has become necessary since all you read on Facebook pages and on social media is the clamor for the Igbos to go back home and to stop being a nuisance. One commentator on Facebook even described Igbos in the North and South West as economic jobless migrant refugees who are a nuisance and asked the question , do you see the Yoruba's and the Northerners investing in the South East? Which is of course a true assertion. There are millions of South Westerners who have never ventured past the Niger River and do not care to. You can hardly find a Northerner investing in the South East, except their cattle rearers. Those Igbos who build expensive mansions in Lagos, Kano, Abuja , Kaduna etc, should do well to first build such mansions in their villages or home states, hence there must be lessons to learn when their properties were declared abandoned in some parts of the country at the end of the civil war. For those who are small scale traders, I am not advocating that they pack up and leave wherever they are, but rather to be alert and cognizant of their surroundings and what is happening around them, because they never know when they can be descended on for the most flimsy excuse. Neither am I advocating that the Igbos isolate themselves and desist from interacting with the rest of the country or other ethnic groups.

They have earned their place in Nigeria and must continue to contribute to its development when offered the opportunity. So also must they recognize their place and know that they are not universally loved or appreciated which to me is the beginning of wisdom. In my opinion the Igbos should stop obsessing about federal appointments and of being marginalized or trying to secede unless there is a referendum to that effect. In which case it must be peaceful and amicable. This is because they can do better by themselves while continuing to exhibit a commitment to excellence. They must remember their history and what they have gone through as a people, knowing that what they cannot do for themselves no one else will do it for them. They must continue to encourage, mentor and assist younger Igbo generations to excel and not climb the ladder of opportunity and success and then kick down the ladder. They must learn to live peacefully, progress and help each other together as brothers or die together as fools.

They have the manpower, the smarts, the ingenuity and the ability to turn the South East into the japan of Africa. All they lack is selfless and tested leadership, since some if not most of their present leaders are dubious, selfish and self- centered to say the least. Most are not in the mode of Dr Azikiwe, Okpara or Ojukwu, all of blessed memory. Their Governors steal from their own people while a majority of other looters steal from the National treasury which in itself is just as bad. They forget that power is ephemeral. That it is here today, gone tomorrow. That every banana stem will one day become dry leaves and that their youthfulness, vibrancy and good health will also fade away someday and all they will be remembered for will be their good or bad deeds when they governed. Most Igbo Politicians to a large degree have become a Machiavellian scheming group with a shameless lack of principle. As shrewd maneuvers of confidence, they have become adept at switching parties, political alliances and allegiances as a pragmatic exercise in the freedom of association, hence there is a need for new crop of leaders. Leaders who see themselves as Igbos first and Nigerians second as other ethnic groups have been doing and stop sucking up to other groups in search of approval and acceptance. Seeing themselves as Igbos first may not sound like wise counsel, but truth be told, that's how some other groups see themselves, so much so that for some their religion comes first before ethnic loyalties or citizenship. Why then must the Igbos therefore be the exception to the norm.? It most certainly must not be this way but that's the reality of the Nigerian experience today until better times and selfless leadership emerges.

For all the non- Igbos, I say stop hating the Igbos and vice-versa, rather try to put yourselves in their shoes and you will understand how they feel, why they whine, the extent of their grief and their difficulty in forgetting the past because the past keeps repeating itself with no end in sight. There is no doubt for some not all, their resentment is borne out of envy for the continued progress and resilience of the Igbos. My advice is, just deal with it and accept it for what it is. Instead of despising them try and borrow their ideas and emulate their entrepreneurial spirit. Instead of stereotyping them from a distance, make an effort to visit or spend time anywhere in the South East and get to understand them, and get to understand them. Be aware that the Igbos have survived and thrived because they have come to realize that in suffering there is glory and that suffering produces perseverance, perseverance character and character hope. The Igbos should also do the same, bearing in mind that not all the people from other tribes are bad or hateful. The must also be willing to accept their short comings as a people, asking themselves, what is it about us people dislike? Are we overbearing, overly aggressive, selfish and controlling? If the answer is yes, then it is obligatory on us to change those things individually and collectively that do not portray us in a more favorable light. But like the title of this essay connotes, we must refuse to be the fool who breaks his own heart by trying to please someone or hang on to a love that is already gone. Again that does not mean secession, all it means is self -awareness, self- realization and self- reliance. Like an American will say," I can do bad all by myself".

The question now is, how do can we as a nation and as Nigerians get past this problem? Can we open our hearts to each other? Can we see each other as simply human beings without regards to ethnicity, language or religion? Can our politicians guard against the reckless and hateful language we see and read in the newspapers? Can we as in the words of the United States president, " get past the heated rhetoric that reduces whole categories of Americans (and in this case Nigerians) to enemies?. Is it possible that we can just for a moment find common ground and lit the candles of shared disgust at the hateful atmosphere in the country today and the inescapable truth that the country is being pulled further apart by its leaders, its politicians and its people? In the end, the solution is not about finding policies that work, but forging consensus and fighting the scourge of cynicism, hatred, prejudice and the will to change. We must open our hearts and develop a new spirit. With an open heart we can learn to step into the shoes of those who feel marginalized and left out and look at their despair through their eyes. Only then can we abandon our stereotypes.

No comments:


I am an Igbo, I was born an Igbo, I live the life of an Igbo, I come from Igbo, I speak Igbo, I like to be Igbo, I like to dress in Igbo, I eat Igbo food, my heritage, culture and tradition is Igbo, my parents are Igbo.

Am sorry I cannot help it if you hate my lineage. Am sorry I cannot help it if you detest Igbo, am sorry I cannot help it if you hate me because am Igbo. Igbo is who I am, my name is Igbo and I must die an Igbo.

You see Igbo as a threat, why? You call Igbo rapist, criminals, ritualist, prostitutes, kidnappers. You attribute all negative vices to represent Igbo? Why do you do that? You do because you feel threatened that Igbo might outrun the rest of the tribes. Why do you hate Igbo and despise us? You do that because we are creative, enlightened, hardworking, industrious, genius, intelligent, smart, rich, beautiful and amazing. But its difficult for you to admit it because you feel jealous of my race.

Igbo do not own politics, Igbo do not control the economy neither do we control the natural resources and the common wealth of the nation. You do, we don't and yet, despite the fact that you own everything, we still remain one indispensable race that has outshined the other race in all ramifications.

You fear us because you want to exterminate and annihilate our race, you deny us many things and yet we are stronger, richer and mightier. You fear us because we are everywhere. You fear us because no matter how rural a place might be, when Igbo steps in, they turn it into a Paradise. We have our own resources, which lies in resourcefulness, we do not bother you and your control over the polity, but yet when we cough you and the other race begin to shiver.

Am proud being an Igbo, am proud of my heritage and culture. Igbo means high class, Igbo means independence, Igbo means hard work and strength, Igbo means riches, Igbo means resourcefulness, Igbo means self belonging, Igbo means self esteem, Igbo means pride, Igbo means swag.

This is beautiful poetry ...

In response to Alaba Ajibola, the Babcock Lecturer Hate Speech against Igbos.


In Igboland women live apart from their husbands and neither cook for them nor enter their husband's quarters when they are in their period. They are seen as unclean. Even up till today such practice is still applicable in some parts of Igboland especially by the traditionalists. Before a woman can enter the palace of Obi of Onitsha, she will be asked if she is in her period, if yes, she will be asked to stay out.

Leviticus 15: 19-20
When a woman has her monthly period, she remains unclean, anyone who touches her or anything she has sat on becomes unclean.

An Igbo man's ancestral heritage, called “Ana Obi” is not sellable, elders will not permit this. If this is somehow done due to the influence of the West the person is considered a fool and is ostracized by the community.

1 Kings 21:3
I inherited this vineyard from my ancestors, and the Lord forbid that I should sell it, said Naboth.

Igbos have practiced the taking of a late brother's wife into marriage after she had been widowed until the white men came. Now it is rarely done but except in very rural villages.

Deuteronomy 25:5
A widow of a dead man is not to be married outside the family; it is the duty of the dead man's brother to marry her.

In Igboland, there is a unique form of apprenticeship in which either a male family member or a community member will spend six (6) years (usually in their teens to their adulthood) working for another family. And on the seventh year, the head of the host household, who is usually the older man who brought the apprentice into his household, will establish (Igbo: idu uno) the apprentice
by either setting up a business for him or giving money or tools by which to make a living.

Exodus 21:2
If you buy a Hebrew slave, he shall serve you for six years. In the seventh year he is to be set free without having to pay you anything.

In Igboland , the yam is very important as it is their staple crop. There are celebrations such as the New yam festival (Igbo: Iri Ji) which are held for the harvesting of the yam. New Yam festival (Igbo: Iri ji) is celebrated annually to secure a good harvest of the staple crop. In the olden days it is an abomination for one to eat a new harvest before the festival. It's a tradition that you give the gods of the land first as a thanksgiving.

Deuteronomy 16:9
Count 7 weeks from the time that you begin to harvest the crops, and celebrate the harvest festival to honor the lord your God, by bringing him a freewill offering in proportion to the blessing he has given you. Celebrate in the Lord's presence together with your children, servants, foreigners. Be sure that you obey my command, said the Lord.

In Igboland it's a tradition that the male children are circumcised on the 8th day. This tradition is still practiced till date.

Leviticus 12:3
On the eighth day, the child shall be circumcised.

In Igboland, there is a practice known as "ile omugwo ". After a woman has given birth to a child, a very close and experienced relative of hers, in most cases her mother is required by tradition to come spend time with her and her husband. During which she is to do all the work of the wife, while the new mom's only assignment to the baby will be to breastfeed. This goes on for a month or more. In the Igbo old tradition, at this time, the new mom lives apart from her husband, would not cook or enter his quarters.

Leviticus 12:1-4
For seven days after a woman gives birth, she is ritually unclean as she is during her monthly period. It will be 33 days until she is ritually clean from the loss of blood; she is not to touch anything that is holy.


The Igbo tribe is in a serious problem and danger of extinction for the following reasons:

50% of Igbos are born outside Igbo land. Meaning that those children are not likely to live and work in Igbo land and cannot speak Igbo language but foreign language (Yoruba, Hausa, French, English).

40% of Igbos girls between the age of 25 & 45 are single with no hope of marriage because 35% of Igbo boys live overseas and they have all married white ladies.

75% of Igbo youths leave Igbo land every year in search of opportunities in Yoruba, Hausa land or overseas.

85 % of Igbos have family houses and own investments outside Igbo land. They strongly believe in one Nigeria but failed to know that NO Yoruba or Hausa man has a family house or investment in Igbo land.

Igbos are the only people who believe that living outside their land is an achievement.

Igbos are the only tribe that celebrate their tradition outside their land e.g. Eze Ndi Igbo, Igbo Village in America and this is because they have family homes in foreign lands.

Igbos have failed to know that the children you have outside Igbo land especially overseas will never think of living in Igbo land. So what happens to the properties you are building for them when you are gone?

Igbos are the only tribe who see their land as a place to visit or a tourist site than a place to work and live.

Igbos are the only tribe who instead of promoting and appreciating their culture through movies and documentaries they have sought to ridicule it by portraying rituals, killings, wickedness, love for money and other social vices which were not originally inherent in our culture thereby cursing more harm than actually promoting their culture.

Igbos are the only people who without hesitation believe their history and description when it is told or written by an enemy or a foreigner. E.g. that you do not love yourselves or that you love money.

Igbos are the ONLY largest tribe on earth who fought for their independence and failed to achieve their freedom after 40 years.

Igbos are the only tribe who fails to honour their brave heroes and heroines especially the innocent children starved to death during the Biafran war.

Igbos are the only tribe who embraced their enemy after a bloody civil war and subsequently become slaves.

Igbos do not find it necessary to teach their own version of history to their children.

Igbos fight for marginalisation in Nigeria but has no collective strength or teeth to bite.

Igbos how long are you going to fight for your relevance in Nigeria?

How long are you going to fight for a functional airport, rail networks and other structural establishments that underpin sustainable development?

How long are you prepared to wait for your enemy to guide you to your destiny?

Oh Igbos!
Where are your leaders?

Unfortunately, none of them live and work in Igbo land. If you wish to save the future of your children, your identity, your generation and your race then you need freedom and that freedom is Biafra.

The Igbo: We die for causes, not for personalities

Written by Emeka Maduewesi

~on fb. 28th September, 2016.

The Igbo will never die for anyone. We will not even riot for anyone. But the Igbo will die for any cause they believe in because the Igbo have a true sense of justice and a determination to obtain it.

The Igbo will not riot because one of their own lost an election. Operation Wetie was the Western response to a massively rigged 1965 election. The Yoruba doused fellow Yorubas in petrol and burnt them alife. Properties were burnt with occupants. The Igbo will never do this.

In 1983, the Yoruba went on a rampage again over the massive rigging by NPN. Lifes were lost and properties destroyed. The riots were over personalities.

Contrast that with Anambra State where Chief Emeka Ojukwu was rigged out by his own NPN, who also rigged out Chief Jim Nwobodo. The Igbo did not protest because the goat's head is still in the goat's bag.

In the North, ba muso was the battle cry when Sultan Dasuki was imposed on the Sokoto Caliphate. The riot and protest lasted for days and crippled economic activities.

The Igbo will riot over issues and causes. The Aba Women Riot was over Tax. The Enugu coal mine riot was about conditions of service. The Ekumeku Uprising was over British colonialization.

Those of "Ekumeku" ancestry - Umu Eze Chima and Umu Nri - were at the forefront of the struggles for Nigerian independence, with people like Dr. A A Nwafor Orizu and Chief Osita Agwuna serving prison terms. Any struggles the parents could not conclude is continued by the children by other means.

The Biafran war was a response to the genocide. The war in fact was brought upon us. The battlefield was Eastern Region. The war ended in 1970 but the issues and causes were not resolved. That is where we are today.

The Igbo will also jointly rise to fight evil in their midst. They did it in Onitsha in the 1980's, Owerri in the 90's, and with Bakkassi in the 2000.

The Igbo will not die for any man. But the Igbo will stand by any man who symbolizes their cause and their pursuit of justice. Even if the man dies, the struggle continues, and like the Ekumeku warriors, the children will pick up the baton from their parents.

This is the Igbo I know, the Igbo I am, and the Igbo we are. This is my story. Feel free to tell yours.


"My boy, may you live to your full potential, ascend to a dizzy height as is possible for anyone of your political description in your era to rise. May you be acknowledged world-wide as you rise as an eagle atop trees, float among the clouds, preside over the affairs of fellow men.... as leaders of all countries pour into Nigeria to breathe into her ear.

But then, Chuba, if it is not the tradition of our people that elders are roundly insulted by young men of the world, as you have unjustly done to me, may your reign come to an abrupt and shattering close. As you look ahead, Chuba, as you see the horizon, dedicating a great marble palace that is the envy of the world, toasted by the most powerful men in the land, may the great big hand snatch it away from you. Just as you look forward to hosting the world’s most powerful leader and shaking his hands, as you begin to smell the recognition and leadership of the Igbo people, may the crown fall off your head and your political head fall off your shoulders.

None of my words will come to pass, Chuba, until you have risen to the very height of your power and glory and health, but then you will be hounded and humiliated and disgraced out of office, your credibility and your name in tatters forever...”
