Nnamdi Kanu and Tony Nnadi are deceiving their gullible followers
By Ifeanyi Chijioke
FREEDOM HAS NO ROAD MAP.
Last week was a hectic one for me; facing core challenges and dealing with challenges of the struggle left me trailing stability. Tony Nnadi was pictured standing on U.S House of Rep podium while Nnamdi Kanu was pictured addressing members of IPOB on the street of Atalanta. The two leaders were in Town Hall meeting; what a perfect way of exploiting gullible Biafrans. While Nnamdi Kanu shouted he was on a diplomatic mission on the streets of US with members of IPOB; Tony Nnadi did the words by meeting former congressman. It was a tale of street razzmatazz championed by Nnamdi Kanu and a coordinated attempt to market self by Tony Nnadi. In the end; the two leaders are fooling not only the people of Biafra but themselves.
IPOB members will always come together to praise Kanu and get social media cheers from multiple accounts holders but no sane lobbyist or international leader will allow Kanu come close to him because of his social media childish agitation. Tony Nnadi is decisively strategic while Kanu is a show man, his script with poor Biafrans in Europe speaks volume. Yet, both leaders have nothing to offer because their ideologies can’t restore Biafra. Believing there is a road map to freedom is a clear sign of failure.
There is no road map to freedom; if Tony Nnadi told you that by the destruction or rejection of Nigerian constitution that freedom will be achieved, assuring you it is his certified road map to our freedom, my brother, Tony Nnadi is on another political business. If Nnamdi Kanu told you that visiting members of IPOB in US and Canada is his diplomatic road map to our freedom, my brother, he wants your money to keep coming and his fame sustained. I have heard Nnamdi Kanu say that he is meeting friends that will help Biafra; but never has a notable figure, even though a former congressman in US or Israel given him attention or even a handshake. These leaders can go on and on; they will only be destroying the struggle with their cowardice, propaganda and lies.
Freedom is a fight for survival; there is no road map to a fight, you only have to come out and face your fight, if your opponent picks knife, you pick dagger, if he picks stone against you, you pick yours, if he comes violently, you collide with him violently, if he comes peacefully, you approach him peacefully, if he comes politically, you approach him politically, by virtue of this, there is no road map to freedom except taking anything and responding with equal proportion anything freedom puts across. Freedom is a game of survival; there are no rules or ways; just fight, fight dirty if need arises.
Nigeria came with force; Nnamdi Kanu forgot his mother and his father that to date, we have not heard of them. He ran and forgot his home to a far away country and never to come back, there he enjoys life and tells stories of how his trip to members of IPOB is a diplomatic mission that will restore Biafra. His new found road map is meeting members of IPOB and tagging it diplomatic move. I wonder how men find it easy to embracing deceit. Hopefully; members of IPOB and public funds he waste with his useless trips will magically transform into arms hence he has squandered contributed Six Hundred Million Naira for defense.
Tony Nnadi is a man that wants to enjoy his life and avoid crimes bothering on treasonable felony. He wants Biafra he can stay in the comfort of his zone; the Biafra he can sit with people and reject Nigerian constitution, by virtue of that, restructuring will happen and Biafra will be closer than ever to us. This narrative makes me sick and regret ever identifying with this struggle leaders has made a business of deceit. Nnamdi Kanu was ready to embrace freedom but as soon as he went into detention and was broken; Femi Fani-Kayode met him and explained to him how to do it; our agitation became a thing of the past. With narratives of how we cannot fight our oppressors; members of IPOB were asked to start shooting films, writing all manner of propaganda, ranting here and there while Kanu travels for IPOB family meeting baptized diplomatic meeting.
Tony Nnadi is agitating for his Kuje Accord and Nnamdi Kanu is also on his own Kuje Accord struggle- tell the people what you want to keep them busy and happy, make sure you do it with utmost respect for the constitution and unity of Nigeria. They have all lost faith and scare away from the singular act that can restore Biafra. Nnamdi Kanu has disbanded his BSS to show his willingness to avoid any form of fight for the freedom of the people. He has successfully left Nigeria where the agitation has become a movie; get people around, put up a show and tell them what pleases you, upload on social media and life goes on. Indeed; their cooperate road map to freedom has become a cooperate road map to fame, wealth creation and indigenous relevance.
