That the Ibos strive for the freedom of the Biafra nation is no longer news, but has recently hit the headlines: Freedom cannot be achieved without the willingness, unity and joint commitment of the people of Biafra. Biafra may not arrive anytime soon, because;
1. The Ibos Are Not United
Recently, a veteran Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke, took to his official Instagram page to make a strong statement that “the Ibos problem is the Ibos”. I totally agree, because if you look at the struggle for freedom recently, you will find that the Ibos are being used against their fellow Ibos. And not only that, an Anambra man does not regard an Aboyi man, an Abia man does not regard an Enugu man as well, and so on. The tribalism rate among the Ibos is very high.
2. Ibos are not yet ready to go
Before anything useful is achieved, certain sacrifices must be made, and the Ibos are not yet ready to make them. If you visit big cities in Nigeria today, Ibos has many businesses and facilities everywhere and they are not ready to lose those investments today or tomorrow all because of this Biafra. Most of the igbos are not in full support of Biafra, especially the upper class. To make Biafra dreams come true, Ibos must come together and prepare.
