The bad news, very evident, is the thought by the Secessionist Igbos that Nigeria owes them anything. As a matter of fact, they do not deserve Nigeria and those who make them believe that Nigeria is worth anything fighting for, shedding their own blood on the platform of secessionist agitations is their worst enemy
There is a cartoon skit going viral online about the President of Nigeria and his Vice discussing the need to borrow more money amidst troubling Nigeria debt status and the Vice asked his President; “Sir should we go to Anambra to borrow money?”
“Sarcastic,” isn’t it? Well, no pun intended; The recent funeral party in Oba, Anambra State turned Naira Spray Carnival going viral online give you that impression that if Nigerians are this wealthy in cash, especially in the hands of its young men of the Igbo speaking stock, what’s the need for all the cries of poverty and running to every corner of the world with a pan in the hands by the Nigerian President begging for loans upon loans that continue to weaken and swell Nigeria’s economic burdens. Just humble yourself and get these men of substance together and build the cash base you need for your unending economic woes.
The scene online in videos and still images emanating from Oba, at Obi Cubana’s home has evoked diverse mixed feelings of awe, sympathy and envy and it will continue to generate expressions of wealth, fame, network and the least in focus, poverty in the midst of plenty.
The good news is the ability of the event to divert attention from Nigeria ubiquitous news of politics, cries of marginalization, kidnapping, herdsmen crisis, bandits, secessionist icons drawing the ire of Nigerian Northern Oligarchs with their Southern political pimps and confused errand boys acting as SA’s, Ministers, Senators, Commissioners etc., Political appointees and wanna-bee government agents acting the script of acclaimed superior born to rule tribal gangs over the indigenous people of Nigeria amidst excruciating poverty, unemployment, infrastructural decay and hordes of beggars from the tribal lords herded into trailer loads of tomatoes, onions, goats and yams emptied in Lagos open markets overnight – The Cubana funeral carnival did not only steal the show off Nigeria mainstream media for the week but played emphasis on the misplaced priorities and confusions of the Igbos shouting marginalization and neglect by Nigeria’s political cult.
The bad news, very evident, is the thought by the Secessionist Igbos that Nigeria owes them anything. As a matter of fact, they do not deserve Nigeria and those who make them believe that Nigeria is worth anything fighting for, shedding their own blood on the platform of secessionist agitations is their worst enemy.
Taking a roll call of the men in the news at the Cubana Naira Spray carnival in Oba, there is not one Nigerian politician of Igbo stock singing One Nigeria except perhaps Senator Ifeanyi Uba who has learned to balance himself with his own people and the Nigeria’s nightmare. The men at the event are a mere handful of an extension of Igbo billionaires of industry and trade, yet the whole country is on edge at the sight of Naira rain which is a common scene among the Igbo people.
The South Eastern Nigeria is the region where you will find the highest number of self-made billionaires, not money made from government grants, looting of budgetary allocations, money stolen from IMF, World Bank and China baptized as Loans, Money looted with impunity and zero regard for humanity despite all the noise about Born to Rule and ruling for donkey years with herds of beggars and miserable wretched young people frustrated by their own elites dumped in Lagos and across other cities as Okada riders, shoe shiners, loaders and dirt parkers with the rest roaming the bushes of Nigeria as cow men of menace destroying ordinary people’s means of business and survival with protection from the Nigeria government.
Those political misfits of Igbo stock parading themselves as governors, advisers, ministers and politicians have need of wisdom to join forces with their own men of industry, engage your people in the business of governance
The Igbos treat with disdain anyone that falls within this category of humanity and worse when their guardians who has all the political and economic means to make their people stand out like the young men in Igbo land for their long-time grips on Nigeria’s wealth but chose to terrorize and continue to terrorize the Indigenous people of Nigeria. The Igbos do not deserve this kind of people and will be wasting resources and energy engaging them in any kind of battle. They’re not worth the strain because they do not worth any gain for the progress of humanity and the society.
The Igbos have the highest number of millionaires in Nigeria. The poverty rate in Igbo land is very low when compared to other regions.
There is rarely any Igbo Community or family whether of near kin or distant family member where you will not find a millionaire. The average Igbo man possess a business acumen that characterizes the attitude of a wealth creator.
The moneybags you saw at Obi Cubana’s mother’s burial turned carnival are top importers and exporters. Many of them are captains of industry. About 65% of them have sole distributorship of products needed in Nigeria and Africa. They represent diver’s foreign companies in Nigeria. About a month or thereabout, a single Igbo business man in Lagos cleared about 750 Containers of goods he brought into the country from overseas and it caused so much row at Apapa Ports.
I have traveled across major open markets in Nigeria from the North to West, Central and South East Nigeria. There is not a single doubt that the Igbos sustain the economic backbone of Nigeria without which Nigeria will crumble overnight irrespective of their claim of oil wealth. Nigeria will live in perpetual debt, excruciating poverty and misery worse than Somalia without the industry of the Igbo man.
Those political misfits of Igbo stock parading themselves as governors, advisers, ministers and politicians have need of wisdom to join forces with their own men of industry, engage your people in the business of governance and earn your pride as genuine Igbo man. Use your political clout if you think you have any to build the infrastructural facility that will establish these floating wealth from your people, engage the men of industry to train and transfer the skills of making money and building empires in your state and stop embarrassing yourselves as Special Advisers to government, governors and politicians aligning with men of wretch who pride in impoverishing their young people across the country to ferment crisis on the business of hardworking indigenous people of Nigeran.
Then talking about ritual money; All monies undergoes a ritual process, it depends on how you employ your own ritual means of acquiring the money and if the men causing the Naira rain at Obi Cubana’s funeral party are all ritualist then somebody have a need to learn fast about the economics of making ritual money because I am certain no money grows on trees neither do any bird of prey vomits money for lazy people to throw about especially those priding in Nigeria’s unintelligent political system that lacks discipline and the capacity to learn and exploit the rules of building wealth and sustaining it.
