In The Near Future
It is very unfortunate that Eastern political leaders made themselves enemies of the people. Very unfortunate.
Easterners are only asking for their fundamental human rights. They are demanding for their rights to self-determination. They are asking for a referendum. But their own leaders betrayed them. They sold them out to people that protect terrorists, Bandits, Fulani herdsmen terrorists and recruited them into the military.
Just last two weeks, Eastern leaders convened in Enugu, had a meeting and the only agenda they had in that meeting was to tell the entire world how they have disowned millions of their own people. What were they thinking when they disowned Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB? Is Mazi Nnamdi Kanu no more the one that put the entire East to Sleep just last month? Who again had the power to do that? How can you disown such a man and still think you are on the right path.
The leaders have created an enemy of their own people and whenever I close my eyes I see evil locking around. Lots of people have been abducted. Many killed immediately, while lots more have not been seen till this very day. Probably killed at the moment of abduction. The leaders have this I don't care feelings related to 'it serves them right'. But I see the weeping changing side. I see a huge weeping coming from the GRAs, the Government Houses and Mansions. I see millions of red eyes. Their anger was that they were betrayed and they are going for the neck.
Evil is coming. I see the blood of of those that slaughtered their own people, being used to appease the land. I see betrayers and saboteurs on the run. I see anger rising. I see more weeping in the camp of the security. I see Aso Rock crying and begging for dialogue and the people saying only FREEDOM can pacify us.
In all these, yet things remained normal and people going out to their daily businesses.
Those thinking this is 1967 should know that #ThisIsNot1967. You in the high places will be so helpless that you won't know what to do.
It is a failed war on the part of the Nigeria government. The greatest losers will be Eastern leaders. Some will sleep forever while others will go into an unprepared permanent exile.
I know nothing, but I see things. Unfortunately, Eastern Leaders can never make amends. It is all over brothers.
May God save the righteous.
