A New Publication
The Fountain of Reason Bookshelf has added a new publication – from me:
Europe’s arbitrary post-colonial borders left Africans carved into countries that did not represent their heritage. This is a contradiction that still troubles Africa and her peoples today. Many of the internal conflicts in most of these countries are as a result of the incompatibilities of various parts joined together to form doomed amalgamations called countries.
The names of those primary African nations were also effaced, and they lost their autonomy along with the effacement, following the balkanization and colonization. After independence those countries that emerged in the new Africa, post scramble, lost the identities of their indigenous homelands some of which were great nations. This includes the Biafra Kingdom. They now have nothing to show for their previous exalted existence.
There exists, today, a much desired principle of retracing the natural boundaries of indigenous African nations destroyed and distorted by balkanization resulting from the scramble for Africa by the Europeans, and following the Berlin Conference of 1884-1885.
The original boundaries of the Biafra homeland can, and is to be, retrieved. When that is done, what do we do with it? The great answer lies in the Biafra Federation into which the Biafra Kingdom is to be retrieved, a great Federation of champion nations which, in every sense, is the center of the world.
- Before Destruction
- Federation of Champions
- Center of the World
A Federation of Champion nations which is the Center of the World
Retrieving our African borders is what is at issue here. This can be done by getting leaders of the component nations to understand that Biafra Kingdom is their bona fide homeland that was destroyed to create their smaller countries, effacing their common great name – – –
Biafra Federation shall consist of Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon and West Biafra (Eastern Nigeria). This is a formidable union that will perfectly retrieve the glorious Biafra Kingdom in its modern format, the Biafra Federation. Biafra Empire, Biafra Kingdom and now, Biafra Federation, are one and the same in content and extent – – –
The names, “Cameroon” and “Gabon” need not be changed. Equatorial Guinea is the very appropriate name the people gave to themselves, which replaced their colonial name. What is an important fact is that these four units existed inside Biafra Kingdom and that Biafra is their bona fide and default homeland. They only need to be part of a federated union of independent states, the united states of a Biafra Federation – – –
From the Epilogue:
Chief Frank Opigo, an Ijaw man from Yenagoa, threw in the suggestion that immediately struck the right cord. It resonated like they all started saying, “Hey, we should have known that. What were we all thinking, looking for a name for our country while the name for our country has been right here looking at us? Of course, this is Biafra homeland!”
I wish I would not be overrating myself by thinking someone in Biafra homeland who never saw himself as a Biafran is now similarly saying “Hey, I should have known that. What was I really thinking, pointing elsewhere at Biafra? Of course this is Biafra homeland! And Biafra is our great common identity”.
